These blanket sizes are not legal standards. The actual dimensions of a blanket can vary by an inch or two from the figures above. The dimensions of mattresses, on which these blanket sizes are based, also vary. It is a good idea to measure your mattress with a tape measure before buying an expensive blanket.

Mattresses are made in many more sizes than blankets. You can use a mattress’s dimensions to estimate an appropriate blanket size for it, but the size needed depends on more than the mattress size. At one extreme are sleepers who prefer a heavy blanket exactly the same size as the top of the mattress. At the other extreme is someone with a California King mattress that is extra-deep, say 15 inches, who wants to tuck in the blanket under the mattress. Ideally, they need a blanket that is at least (84 + 15 + 6 =) 105 inches long. So, only you can determine how large a blanket is needed.
