Bedding products in the U.S. are standardized, meaning that their sizes comply to industry or traditional standards. This is a good thing, because you don't have to measure everything individually to make sure they fit together.
For example, if you buy a Queen sized bed, matress and fitted sheet from three different stores, they should fit just fine. However, some brands or models may be slightly off from standard sizes, and certain dimensions (like matress thickness) can vary quite a bit from manufacturer to manufacturer. So it is always a good practice to double check the sizes before you go shopping.
