What Else You Should Know About Our Twin Mattresses
Twin mattresses aren’t just great for kids’ rooms. They are also the standard size for daybeds and trundles, which are ideal for a guest room, or any room where your goal is to save space. If you have a limited amount of room, twin beds are narrow and can be stacked as bunk beds, which save even more space. Whatever your vision is for a bedroom, kids’ room, or guest room, we can help you find the right twin mattresses that will be comfortable, supportive and space-saving.

Twin Mattress Options
Knowing what you want or need is the first step in happy shopping. One thing to consider is any physical needs you require of your bed. For instance, if you suffer from back pain, you may want a firmer mattress. If you tend to sleep on your side, on the other hand, a softer top will give you greater comfort. Other factors to consider is how warm or cool you prefer to feel at night. With so much to think about, it’s easy to lose your way. To help get you where you want to be, the following important points may prove useful.
All of our twin mattresses include a softness rating, from 1 (firmest) to 10 (softest). If you’re a stomach or back sleeper, you may want a mattress on the firmer side, while side sleepers will want some softness to relieve pressure on the hips and shoulders. Pillow and euro tops offer a softer, enveloping experience, while firm tops provide more support for alignment and back pain. Softness can also affect temperature – a softer top allows your body to sink into the mattress, reducing air flow, while a firmer top keeps your body on the surface, increasing air flow.
A twin size mattress can comfortably sleep one adult. Standard twin mattress dimensions are 38”W x 75”L. While this length is fine for most people, some need extra leg room. A twin XL mattress measures 38”W x 80”L, the same length as a king or queen. If you’re on the taller side, a twin XL may be better suited to your needs. Whichever way you go, the most defining characteristic is the width – a twin bed fits in smaller spaces but that also means less space for adults.
Many of our twin and twin XL mattresses are adjustable friendly, meaning they have the flexibility to be used with an adjustable bed. It’s important to note that an adjustable friendly mattress doesn’t require an adjustable bed – it just means you can safely use it with one. If you’re interested in an adjustable bed, the Sealy Ease 3 Adjustable Bed Base is a great option and comes in twin size.
Mattresses have come a long way since the days of basic innerspring coils. Our twin size mattresses come in a variety of materials, each with its own pros and cons. Choosing the right one will ensure optimal comfort for a peaceful night’s sleep. Two of the most common options on the market are memory foam and innerspring, as modern innersprings remain a great choice for firmness and support.
Memory foam This is a popular choice for its comfort and durability. It softens with body heat, allowing it to mold to the sleeper’s form. This gives side sleepers better support because the mattress molds around the shoulders and hips instead of pushing back with stiff resistance. However, because memory foam responds to body heat, it also has a tendency to trap it. For some people, this results in restless sleep as they have difficulty staying cool. That doesn’t mean memory foam is out of the question for heat-sensitive sleepers. In fact, Tempur-Pedic has a range of mattresses designed with this very issue in mind. As an example, check out the Tempur-Pedic Tempur-Luxebreeze Firm Mattress.
Innersprings Springs are a time-tested classic for long lasting support. Because they push back, innersprings prevent stomach sleepers from arching their bodies unnaturally while giving back sleepers alignment support. However, side sleepers may find there’s too much pressure on their shoulders and hips, resulting in disrupted sleep or discomfort in the morning. Some manufacturers remedy this with a pillow or euro top layer, such as our own City Mattress Grand Teton Eurotop Mattress. Over time innersprings can lose their tension and sag, creating “dips” of decreased support.
Hybrid mattress Hybrid mattresses combine an innerspring core with memory or latex foam layers for the best of both worlds, giving firm support overall while also relieving pressure at the most sensitive points. This makes hybrid mattresses a great choice for couples with different needs (such as a side sleeper partnered with a back pain sufferer). Combined with an adjustable bed, a hybrid twin mattress can be the perfect compromise. A great example of this is the Simmons Beautyrest Hybrid Brx1000-Ip Medium Mattress.
Latex A lesser known option is latex, a natural and durable material that resists wear. In fact, its durability allows for warrantees of up to 15 years! More importantly, latex provides pressure relief much like memory foam, but is bouncier and has less of a hug effect. It also sleeps cooler because airflow is increased. For people with back pain, latex is an excellent option for great support with a hint of softness. For example, the PranaSleep South Beach Delano Plush Mattress maintains average firmness while still providing cushioned support.
Bed in a Box A Bed in a Box twin mattress is a final and excellent option if you want to order your mattress online and receive it in an easy to manage box only a few feet long. Most Bed in a Box mattresses are made of memory foam and comfort foam, allowing them to be shipped in a smaller package. There are even hybrid options for innerspring support! With a Bed in a Box, you can buy the mattress you want, receive it in just a few days, and stay in your pajama pants the entire time. For a great example of a hybrid selection from a leading brand, check out the Casper Original Hybrid Mattress.
The Purpose of a Twin Mattress
With their smaller size, twin mattresses are great for kids. There’s plenty of room for a sleepover or a bedroom shared by siblings. They also make great guest room options when you want to provide accommodations but don’t want to break the bank. Where a twin mattress falls short is space for adult couples. Even a twin XL size mattress only extends the length – the width is still narrow at 38”. For a master bedroom, you may want to consider a queen or king size mattress instead – the wider dimensions allow more space for couples to rest in comfort.
Of course, smaller bedrooms often demand a compromise between comfort and space – the more bed you have, the less room there is to move around. In these cases a twin size mattress may be the best option for you. They’re also the standard size for daybeds and trundles, and can even be stacked as bunk beds to save even more space. One great maximize space in a smaller room is with a futon. We offer several twin futon mattresses ready to ship. Beyond mattresses, City Mattress can help you get the most out of small spaces with excellent storage ideas!
