Twin mattresses are not all the same size! While the standard Twin (Single) is the smallest at 39x75, the Twin XL elongates the bed by 5 inches, clocking in at 80" in length.
What Is the Difference Between a Twin and a Twin XL?About 5", to be exact. The Twin XL simply adds a few inches in length and is designed for taller children and single adults. While the Twin can be found more often in modern children's bedrooms, the XL is standard in college dorms. Both, however, have the same width: about 39". To summarize: children tend to fare best with Twins, and if you're taller, sleep alone, and don't need a lot of width, you're best off with a Twin XL.
