California king bed: It's more than a sad song by Rihanna, but many shoppers don't really know the difference between a king mattress and a California king mattress. Some people may not even be aware that there is a difference.
A king size mattress measures 76 inches wide by 80 inches long. This type of mattress is more popular on the eastern side of the U.S., hence its alternative name of eastern king. It is also known as a North American king or standard king and is the original king size. The king has an additional 4 inches in width over the California king but is also 4 inches shorter. (We're not sure if people on the East Coast are shorter and wider than those of us in the Golden State; we'll leave it to you to do your own research!)
By comparison, a California king mattress measures 72 inches wide by 84 inches long and also goes by the names western king, West Coast king, or WC king. This is the longest standard mattress available in North America. While the slightly narrower width would be imperceptible to many people, the extra 4 inches in length over the regular king can make a great deal of difference in comfort for taller sleepers. The California king is the common king size mattress in the western part of the United States. (This knowledge might be helpful if you should ever move, because in some parts of the country, you would need to be careful to get linens of the correct size.)
