The usual selection of mattress (& bedding) sizes often reads to me like a recitation of the vowels: A, E, I, O, U, & sometimes Y. Where California King equals the “sometimes Y.” Figuring out the basic differences between Twin, Full, Queen, & King isn’t rocket science – the next is bigger than the one before it, right? Except that logic doesn’t quite hold when you pit the “regular” King (also known as the Eastern King) against its western cousin. Given that Cal King typically comes at the very end of the mattress size spectrum (aside from the mondo specialty sized Grand King), it’s easy to assume that it would trump the Eastern King in size. This is only half true. The Cal King comes in at an impressive 84 inches long – 4 inches longer than an Eastern King – making it the perfect choice for taller individuals, especially people over 6 feet. However, this extra length comes at a price. The Cal King is “only” 72 inches wide – 4 to 6 inches narrower than an Eastern King which measures between 76 & 78 inches wide. The Eastern King provides couples with the most individual sleeping space, equivalent to two extra long twin beds pushed together. But for taller people, it might be worth the sacrifice on width to have a bed that allows one to stretch out comfortably. But really, either way you cut it, it’s good to be the king.
Brooke has been a bonafide bedding snob since 2002 & has learned the pleasure of sleeping on truly fabulous sheets. In her spare time she bakes copious amounts of yummy, not-so-good-for-you food; reminisces about how she used to have lots of spare time for reading; & does her best to keep her 3-year old, tiny-dictator-of-a-son away from certain danger.

How we have enjoyed Cuddledown products over the years! Their website is extremely frustrating because it doesn't recognize ones current password and offers NO option to reset it! That means that they expect you to re-enter all of your information with every order! This is extremely poor customer service and I'm positive that it has lost business for the company. Calling to order in the past I have mentioned this to whom I was speaking. It's 2016, get with the program please!Debby on: April Sale Event at our Freeport, ME Outlet Store!
