THE MATTRESS SIZE GUIDE

The size of your mattress is one of the first, not to mention most important decisions you need to make. There are many options available but here are some handy tips when choosing the best size that suits you:

* A mattress should be at least 10cm longer than the height of the tallest person using it.

* The width of the mattress should allow you to be able to put both your hands under your head without your elbows touching the edge of the mattress or the person sleeping next to you.

* European mattress sizes differ from UK mattress sizes.
