    We have 2 full size beds. One is from my bedroom suit that I currently have. The other bed is my sisters old bed frame. My parents got her a new frame. So we just have to buy a mattress set for that bed. We figure it’s plenty of room for right now. The master bedroom in our first home isn’t really big enough for a bigger bed. But we’re going to upgrade eventually.

    I told Fiance that I defianetly want a bigger bed when we decide to have children. Reason being: I remember late nights of crawling into bed with my parents when I was little. LOL

    We don’t live together; I still live at home with my parents. He lives in his own trailor (yes, a very small mobile home; but not our home) We don’t stay the night together either. We’re both traditionalist, and so are our families (My ‘rents, and his aunt & uncle) My father & his uncle would SO not allow it. LOL

    We have a queen because it’s what he had when we moved in together.  However, having slept in a king at a hotel, when we’re done with this bed we will be upgrading.  But we don’t think there is such a thing as "too big" when it comes to beds. ๐Ÿ˜›

    IF I had my way we’d have a Cal King — that’s what my parents have and it is what I always expected when we moved into a bigger place.  But, now that we have moved we are still sleeping in our queen — and it looks so tiny in our new house.  I tried bringing it up to my husband, but he responded that I come from a family of giants and he doesn’t so queen is just fine.  My hubby is 5’10" and I am 5’7" and he says we are too small for a king.  My mom is 5’9" and my dad is 6’4" — so my husband thinks that they are the "right size" for a Cal King.  Anyway… the queen just doesn’t look right in the new bedroom… sigh…

    I wish they made a California Queen.  The width of the Queen is perfect, but hubby could use the extra length.

    We have a queen right now but will get a King when we’re married. I love the queen right now, but with a big guy (6’5", 200lbs) and a big dog who refuses to sleep on the floor vying for room, we need a king. Somehow I always get the least room!

    We used to have a full and slept on that together for 2+ years.  We recently upgraded to a King and I LOVE IT!  I’m a really light sleeper, so with my Fiance further away, I’ve been sleeping a lot better!  When he’s gone, I sleep in the middle!

    we have a queen and I love it.  We usually get Kings in hotels and while it is really great in some ways, I do find that by the morning he feels really far away as we end up moving apart during the night.  I prefer the Queen.  Also, living in Manhattan a King isn’t even an option for us!  The King bed owners here sure are militant about it being the best though ๐Ÿ™‚

    Actually regular King size beds are the same length as Queens, they are just wider (I believe). If your guy needs the extra length you should go for the California King (4" longer than a Queen) but not as wide as a regular King.

    We have a California King because the Fiance is 6’3. With the two of us and a mutt sleeping in one bed a California King was a must.Another thing to consider is the possiblity of a future kid. ๐Ÿ˜› Queen might be the right size for two adults but what about 2 adults + a baby? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Something to consider in regards to California Kings is that they are usually extra deep and sheets are harder to find and more expensive.

    We have a california king and I love it!  He had a full size bed before and I hated it! I need space when I sleep and the cal king is great for that!  Even now when I’m in it, I think its not that big.  You get used to it.

    Queen….but hopefully (soon) we’ll be splurging for a King-size mattress set. We’re both bed hogs.

    A king hands down. He moves around a lot. When we moved into our house, we used my queen til we purchased a new bed. I slept horribly til we got it. He would wake me up moving around. 

    One note for city people or small house people. When we moved our queen upstairs to our guest room we had to saw the boxspring in half and fold it to get it up the stairs. The mattress barely made it up. When we bought our king, we got a sleep number bed. I’m not over the moon about it, but it comes to the house in two 2′ x 4′ boxes. So there was no issue about getting it upstairs. We looked at memory foam as supposedly it comes rolled up, so that may have worked. We went with the sleep number as it is more like a regular mattress.

    Dog fills his space when he is not there and sometimes when he is!)

    a queen is perfect for me and my FH. big enough that we spread out when we need to and small enough that we can cuddle. I think we’d get lost if we had a king…they’re huge!
