    We have a queen.  The guest room at IL’s house is a full, which is a little cramped but doable for the short term (the bigger issue is that “my” side is up against the wall, so I can’t even hang an arm or leg off for some room!)  We’ve stayed in hotels that have a king, and Darling Husband prefers them (6’5″, so he actually fits on a king).  Our bedroom here is pretty cramped with the queen, but the matress is from DH’s law school days & wearing out, so when we move we’re gonna ditch & replace it, and if the bedroom at the next place is big enough, we’ll probably upgrade to a king.

    Full. It’s the right size without taking up a lot of space. We are also major cuddlers so it brings us even closer without trying. :]

    We have a double/full. It’s cozy,but it works for us. I wouldn’t mind a queen, but our apartment is small and the bed frame was free.

    We upgraded from a queen to a king after we got married. Best decision ever! We love it.

    We have a queen but I really really want a king. I can justify a new bed purchase, but then buying all new duvets, comforters, sheets? That just makes it too much.

    @Mrs. Jellyfish: We have a queen size bed not too big or too small. If you asked me, I would prefer it to be smaller so we can sleep closer hehe. For some reason though, we like to sleep in our side and cats in the middle. 🙂

    we upgraded last year from a full to a California King. Hubby is 6’4″ and this is literally the first bed he’s ever had that he didn’t hang off!  we laugh a lot at how I can lie sideways in the bed without touching the edges (at 5’4″ I look like a midget next to him).

    @Mrs. Jellyfish:  King size beds are awesome. Yeah, we start off snuggling and that’s nice, but after a bit you want to sprawl out. It’s the only bed we found with room to do that. Plus, we got a two sided bed (one side with firmer memory foam for him, my side has soft memory foam). It’s all snuggles at the beginning of the night, but you’re gonna want space to sleep.

    Full. It sucks. Especially now that I am pregnant and would like to get a body pillow, but can’t because it won’t fit. We want a Queen, but Father-In-Law just made us a beautiful hand made wood bed frame without thinking we might want a bigger bed. We have no room for a guest room or anything so it would have to just go into storage and we would feel bad. So we are going to stick with the full until we get a bigger house.

    We have a queen.  I want a king and we have the room in our bedroom, but we can’t get the mattress/box spring into the building without maybe rigging something with a rope to haul it up onto our balcony and then through the sliding glass door – apparently Darling Husband had a hell of a time getting the queen into the building.  The elevator isn’t tall enough/the stairs don’t have enough room for it.

    We have a king and we love it. Our bedroom is huge, so we needed something large to fill the space.

    We have a queen sized bed and I think it is the perfect size for us. We naturally sleep close together but the bed gives us enough room for ur own space if we want it. If we ever stay in a hotel with a king bed – sometimes it seems like it’s TOO big for us.

    @Mrs. Jellyfish:  

    It all depends on the size of your bedroom, as well as the size of your door frames.

    A king couldn’t fit through our doors. It would also be a tight fit in our bedroom.

    I believe that couples need at least a queen size bed. I once read that if a couple sleeps in a double bed, they will each have less space than a CRIB MATTRESS. 

    We used to sleep in a double and it was pure hell. My husband is 6’2 and 220. Now that we have a queen, it feels much better to sleep in the same bed.
