The Best Alaskan King Mattress

The Alaskan King bed, with dimensions at a whopping nine feet long by nine feet 9x9 wide, is truly the King of King-sized mattresses. It dwarfs the other beds named for geography: the California King, the Texas King, and the Wyoming King. Historically, it wasn’t until the 1940s in America that beds larger than the classic Twin or Double began to get manufactured.

These larger mattresses quickly made an impact on the market, and with the introduction of the California King in the 1960s, new and bigger mattresses started to get standardized sizes. As consumers' homes and bedrooms continued to grow in size, so did the demand for even more immense and luxurious mattresses, like the Alaskan King mattress.

 

The exact origin of the Alaskan King bed 9x9 is debated, but it most likely first appeared in the 1960s - 1970s after the popularity of the California King proved there was a market for an even larger bed. Unlike the name ‘California King’, the Alaskan King’s name most likely does not indicate the geographic origin of the first Alaskan King mattress ever made.

Instead, the Alaska King is named based on size, because Alaska is by far the largest U.S. state - double the size of Texas, the 2nd largest state! This is the perfect name for a mattress that dwarfs all standard-sized beds.

How many people can sleep on an Alaskan King bed?

An Alaska King oversize mattress can hold four grown adults comfortably and is the perfect bed for families that co-sleep together. It is also great for individuals who are exceptionally tall or like to spread out at night, or for couples with large pets that share the bed with them. For anyone with a large enough bedroom, nothing can beat the luxury of stretching out on an Alaskan King bed.
