How to choose the right size foam mattress
Getting the right size foam mattress can help you get a good night's sleep. Here are our tips for selecting a mattress that's right for you.
Certain constraints can prevent us from owning an optimal mattress - a small bedroom, having to share a bed with a partner, and cost are some examples. However, having the right size foam mattress is critical for a comfortable night's sleep, which in turn helps to boost productivity, happiness and general health.
The first step to solving your foam mattress needs is to understand what size is right for you.

Give yourself enough space
A buying guide by consumer advocacy group Choice recommends that a mattress should be at least 10 to 15 centimetres longer than your height. That will ensure you have enough leg room. While having the largest possible bed is ideal, the size of the bedroom should be taken into account. After all, you still need space to move about the room.
Is your bedroom big enough for your bed?
Therefore, before you choose a mattress, use a tape measure to find out the dimensions of your bedroom and estimate the measurements of the largest possible bed that will fit comfortably. Once you know these measurements, you are ready to start looking for a new bed. Foam mattresses come in different categories based on size:
- Queen size Comfort Deluxe is 203cm long, and 152cm wide
- Double Comfort Deluxe is 188cm long and 137cm wide
- Caravan double Comfort Deluxe is 188cm long and 122cm wide
- Single Comfort Deluxe is 188cm long and 91cm wide
Before you choose a mattress, use a tape measure to find out the dimensions of your bedroom.
Premium mattresses for more comfort
While having enough space is important, additional comfort can be achieved from mattresses containing premium materials such as memory foam or latex foam.
Memory foam adapts to a person's shape and weight, and are excellent for improving circulation and relieving joint pain. Latex foam also moulds to body shape and allows for the materials to breathe. This can be very beneficial to those who are susceptible to allergies.
