Standard double mattress, 160cm x 200cm
The standard European double is actually 140 cm x 200.

160 cm x 200 cm is a queen in mainland Europe but slightly wider than a US queen. The US queen is similar in size to the UK "king" which is 150 x 200 (the US is between the two). So UK mattresses are smaller than mainland European ones and will be a bit small on many European bed frames. I have the same problem with my UK double which is 135 x 200 and my bed frame which is designed for a 140x 200 mattress.

If one gets a king/superking 180 x 200, then they are all the same. There are other sizes of course but these are the standard ones. I have done so much research over the last month on who has what size, my eyes are crossed!
