Double mattress size dimensions in cm.
The standard South African double mattress size is 137 cm wide and 183 cm long. Extra length options are available and measure 200 cm long. Mattress heights will differ quite a bit. The thinnest mattresses are foams which can be anywhere from 10 - to 12 cm high and the thickest hybrid types can be as much as 50 cm or higher.
Between 15 and 50 centimetres high
Most mattresses are between fifteen and 50 centimeters high. If you have a bed base that is 28 cm tall and you want a total height of 65 cm, you should purchase a model roughly 23 centimeters thick.
Different types and their heights
Doubles vary greatly depending on the type. These are just some rough guides as every mattress will differ, the average height of a mattress is in the region of 28 - 35 cm for a good quality model.
- Entry-level foam units usually measure 10 cm - 20 cm. Mid-level is between 20 cm and -25 cm and the upper end is around 25 cm - 35 cm
- Bonnell spring double mattress measures in the range between 18cm and 35 cm
- Memory foam types are generally between 28 cm and 40 cm for some of the feature-stacked ones.
- Hybrids have a very wide range of heights. Because some of them have individual pocket coils topped with density foam and some have a Classic Bonnel Spring System topped with latex foam. This makes it difficult to give a good idea of an average but you would probably be looking in the 28 cm - 35/40 cm range.

Which Double Mattress is the best?
The best double mattress is one that suits you and your sleep preference. There are no mattress brands that can claim to be the best.
