By now you probably know that a good night's sleep can help guard against certain illnesses and promote emotional health.

What to Consider When Buying a Mattress
When it comes to mattresses, one size does not fit all literally.

Some people like older individuals or people with special needs have other considerations when it comes to choosing a mattress.
Mattresses range in size from twin at 38" x 80" to the king at 76" x 80" and California king at 72" x 84" if you are extra tall. Extra long mattresses are also available in twin and full sizes. A full-size mattress is 54" x 75", while a queen size is 60" x 80".
