We have a queen sized bed….but a full size mattress because we couldn’t get the queen sized one up the stairs to our third floor bedroom 😛

We share a full size bed. It’s a step up from the XL twin we squeezed into in college when we stayed at each other’s dorm. Pretty difficult when Mr. Monkeyface makes sure to end up smack dab in the middle of the bed.

Queen. But we both would like a king!

We share a full but in our next move (sometime this summer hopefully) we are thinking about upgrading to queen…we actually do okay with the full save for one thing. SO likes to sleep facing in, and he sleeps at an angle so that when he breathes (and he’s a big mouth breather in his sleep) his stale sleep breath gets blown directly into my face. So it’s impossible for me to roll over to also face “in” and not be in the direct stream of his breath. It’s gross haha. So with a queen I’ll be able to be facing in but scoot away from him if need be.

Full, and it’s fine!  We sleep snuggled together most of the time, and quite often with the cat.  I actually had a queen size bed before I moved in with Fiance, but it’s living in the garage now.

We used to have a king – We ended up selling it when he moved to British Columbia.  I loved having all that space, but it was a mattress I had bought with an ex, so I was actually happy to see it go.  I wanted us to have a mattress that were were the only ones who had ever slept on it (or done…other things…on it).

We have a queen now, with the most insanely comfortable memory foam/pillow top combination…it is the most amazing bed I’ve ever slept in.  We like to touch each other when we’re sleeping, so downsizing to the queen hasn’t been a problem at all.  I do think though that if one day we have a house with a large enough master bedroom we would get another king and use the current mattress in a guest room.

Queen, and it’s just fine. Although, I wouldn’t complain about a King. More room for my dog to snuggle on while I get to keep my leg room.

We have a queen. I want a bigger bed–double queen or something. DH is a total bed hog. Drives me nuts.

We started with a full and it wasn’t pretty. I was fine because I typically keep to my edge but he could not sleep because he didn’t have enough room. Not to mention we both toss and turn a lot at first. Finally got a king and never going back!

Fiance and I currently have a queen size bed… However Fiance is really trying to get me to agree to get a king size bed.  I just can’t justify the expense right now though, the queen size bed we have is barely 2 years old and it cost a pretty penny (tempurpedic! <3)…

It fits us fine but Fiance says I crowd the bed, which I can’t justify as a reason to get a new bed, we only share it for a few hours before I get up in the morning because he works nights)….

Getting a bigger bed would mean that we would have to get a new bed frame (that would hopefully match our current furniture) and get a new bed set which the one that we have cost WAY too much money and is barely 4 months old!  Besides the fact that I LOVE it and it’s discontinued!

I’d rather spend the money on a new living room set.  Which Fiance adamantly says we don’t have money for yet he wants to get a new bed.  lol Boys.

SO insisted on a King size bed when we bought our house. I thought that it would be too big – but it’s actually perfect. He’s a tall guy and I toss around in my sleep so the extra space is appreciated. But according to SO I’m a blanket hog – so maybe we need to upgrade to two blankets like someone else posted earlier.

On second thought, I just walked into the bedroom where Fiance is asleep and he is taking up the ENTIRE bed… So I’m pretty sure I don’t take over the bed when I sleep and keep him from sleeping I think it’s just the fact that I take ANY space makes it hard for him to sleep… lol  I don’t think getting a king size bed would fix this problem. haha

My SO and I share a queen size, sleigh bed. My SO is 6’3′ so we need a big bed.
