Where to buy Extra Long Mattresses?

They DO exist. They measure 80" long versus regular twin at 75" long. These are found mostly in college dorm rooms though.

I have tall boys and they need a XL bed.

I find XL twins sheets everywhere but no the beds!

  • When I said JC Penney I meant their website......they definitely have them there. If there is a store near you call them first and ask.

  • Thanks for asking this question and the answers that you got, cuz I have the same issue and was looking for these. I actually think it's as easy as half a king bed.

  • Have you tried like a shop that sells mattresses for semi trucks? I ask because the beds in semi's are longer than your standard bed.

  • They are called Extra Long Twin and most places that sell mattresses have them. We bought our daughters at Denver Mattress Company.
