A standard UK double is almost the same size (bar an inch) than an American full size bed. A UK king size is an American Queen (give or take a little) and a UK super king is a little smaller than an American king size.

Is bedding really that much cheaper that it’s worth buying here? I’ve always found bedding here to be expensive for what it is (and the quality to be poor) and I actually order from Marks and Spencer’s and have it sent here.

I had this dilemma when I was in San Fran. for the life of me I couldn't work out the bedding sizes so I ended up buying the duvets AND duvet covers in america and vacuum packed them for the return journey home. I bought 2 sets of covers in different designs.

Where are you all finding this wonderful bedding? I’ve lived here for years and not found anything that either looks nice or is comfortable. I’m obviously looking in the wrong places.
