Mattress Standards

Can the bureau of indian standards please make some proper standards for readymade beds and mattresses in India.

Companies like Ikea are selling beds in european sizes calling them king queen etc. if you buy a mattress of any indian brand for those same sizes, the mattress is either too big for the bed or small.

Imagine the consumer inconvinience to order something get it home pay cartage and then return it back to online or dealer on your own cost and fight to get a replacement which is also not of right size.

Please look into this standards body. more

As per your bed size you can get a matrices at IKEA. But you have to know your bed size first.
Online shops does not give proper size as per their Adv. more  
If mnc companies do not look regional issues then they cannot survive andwe as end customers need to be careful about buying these kind of products which may not suit our kind of culture and requirement more  
Different size of the mattress are available in the market to suite the Bed size. Depending on the height of a person, he can select the Bad and after that select the mattress. I do not think, BIS can specify any size for Beds and Mattress. more  
It is advisable to have Indian standard for different category of beds. For this we may adopt the sizes as per International standards. Mattress size can made according to bed size standards. This way requirements of customized bed / mattresses would get reduced. more  
Take measurement of your cot and a matress of the requisite dimensions. If that size is no available, you may choose a little larger size n get it customised. more
