What is the difference between California King and regular King Bedding?
The difference between a King and California King mattress.
The mattress sizes between a King and California King bed are slightly different:
- King – 76” W x 80” L (sometimes we see King mattresses 78" wide)
- Cal King – 72” W x 84” L
Nevertheless, the following items are not interchangeable:
- Fitted sheets
- Bed skirts

- Taller people usually purchase a Cal King because of its extra length
