King, but only the width of a regular queen.  It is only available in special order.  We tried to order through Mattress Warehouse, but they are giving us a variety of difficulties, and we want to try to order elsewhere.</p> <p><br/>Have you ever had a special order mattress made?  Can you suggest a company that handled it well, or one to avoid?  In general, I know how to choose a mattress, but this special order thing is turning out to be a real pain.</p> <p><br/>Thanks!</p> <p>Shoe</p> Zero Gravity Chairs....... tag:www.thetallstreetjournal.com,2012-07-20:2152092:Topic:79901 2012-07-20T22:41:22.879Z Jimmi The Sicilian http://www.thetallstreetjournal.com/profile/JimmiTheSicilian <p>Hi All,</p> <p>I'm looking to buy a zero gravity chair that is going to be comfortable for my skinny 6' 3" frame.
