A standard twin mattress is about 38 x 75" and an extra long mattress is about 5 inches longer (80").   The XL mattress size is  commonly found in college dorm rooms, and for tall teenagers with long legs.

If you have a large, pillow-top mattress, using an XL sheet will likely fit fairly snug. I have accidentally bought XL sheets for my daughter's regular twin bed.  They are a little "saggy" around the corners, but I have found that using a foam topper over the mattress helps with this problem.
