Pillow Size Chart

Standard Pillow Sizes Available in Canada, with Pillow Dimensions

Before we list the standard pillow sizes found in North America and Europe, it is extremely important to remember that many pillow makers simply do not adhere to the standards. The purpose of this chart is to help those who are looking for a specific aesthetic, particularly when selecting their bed linens.

As a general rule of thumb, natural filled pillows usually conform to standardized sizing. On the other hand, foam pillows typically do not conform to standard pillow sizing.

All metric dimensions are rounded off for simplification.

Toddler & Travel 16 x 20" 41 x 51 cm
Regular 20 x 26" 51 x 66 cm
Standard 20 x 28" 51 x 71 cm
Queen 20 x 30" 51 x 76 cm
King 20 x 36" 51 x 91 cm
European 26 x 26" 66 x 66 cm

Nearly all pillow sizes are rounded up. In the real world, it is not uncommon for a pillow to measure as much as 1" smaller, even when attempting to conform to these sizes. This is simply because pillows are not perfectly square, and still made by hand.
