I'm 5'8" and the 60x126 is a bit narrow for me. My feet keep falling out in the middle of the night. If I do one for myself, I'd go with the 90x132 in Chocolate
The 60x126 should be fine for the younger folks, since they have yet to top out at 5'

Yeah, what CamRuns said. 60 is plenty wide for most people given you haven't made it too short to get a diagonal lay. Most all DIY fabric is under 60" before hemming
and is plenty wide.
How did you attach your suspension? Use up a lot of length in whipping?
Maybe we should see a pic of how you have it hanging.
