Who can sleep on a double mattress?

Mattress Sizes

The 135 x 190 cm or 140 x 200 cm mattress can be used as a mattress for singles, larger people, or a smaller mattress for couples.

Optimally, it could be used as the perfect mattress for a slightly larger individual. It will give people of larger body size the necessary width to sleep comfortably in any sleeping positions.

In addition, it could also be used as a mattress for a couple as it does still provide enough space for two people.

Size 135 x 190 cm
For whom? Singles, couples, guests
Materials? High-quality materials such as latex, memory foam, polyether foam, and cold foam

How to choose a 135 x 190 cm mattress

If you’re looking for a mattress to share with your partner, then you need to consider how much independent space you have on the mattress. It is important to be able to sleep and move around comfortably without disturbing your partner.

That aside, you need to consider the following criteria when buying a 135 x 190 cm mattress, whether for one or two people:

  • Type of mattress: Memory foam, gel foam, cold foam, latex, or spring mattress
  • Degree of firmness (according to your body weight and individual preference): Soft, medium, firm
  • Quality of the mattress: Pay special attention to this when you’re buying a cheap mattress
  • Delivery and return conditions: Quality brands usually offer a 100-day trial period with free return shipping and a full refund if you’re not completely satisfied.

The 135 x 190 and 140 x 200 cm mattresses are available in many different types of materials. Not each material will be right for you, the shape of your body, or your preferred sleeping positions.

We’ve tested numerous mattresses with people of different sizes to be able to offer you the best double mattresses according to material.

Which degree of firmness should you choose for a 2-person mattress?

The degree of firmness of a mattress and its density are very important factors two consider. We would advise you pay attention to these regardless of whether you’re buying a one-person or a two-person mattress.

The necessary density and firmness depend entirely on your body weight. Both density and firmness need to increase according to body weight. Age is also an important factor to consider. For example, a soft or medium mattress would be more suitable for seniors, regardless of body size, than a very firm mattress would be.

The density of a mattress is a good indicator of its durability and lifespan. The higher the density, the higher the quality of the mattress and the longer its lifespan.

Your preferred sleeping position and other personal preferences should also be considered when selecting a new mattress.

Buying a cheap two-person mattress

Mattresses are an investment, and we need only replace them every 10-15 years. The quality of your sleep also directly depends on the quality of your mattress. This means that it is essential to choose the right mattress.

If you have a limited budget available and are looking for a cheap mattress, please consult our page on cheap mattresses. We would advise you to up your budget and, instead, rely on discounts to bring the price down of a higher-quality mattress. You can visit our discounts page for this.


Cheap Mattress


In general, the double mattress is suitable for most people. 135 x 190 cm mattresses and 140 x 200 cm mattresses are a good size for both singles and couples.

In our experience, however, the 150 x 200 cm king-size mattress is slightly better for couples. This slightly larger mattress gives you and your partner more space and a better night’s sleep.

My mum calls me "bear" because I like to sleep so much. I never knew that, one day, that would be a very useful skill. Can you tell that I've found my calling?
