Is there any difference between "to get out of the bed" and "to climb out of the bed"? Any change in the meaning?

    those should both be "to get out of bed" and "to climb out of bed" respectively if you want to sound natural May 14, 2021 at 18:40

    "Climb out" sounds like it's a little more effort. May 14, 2021 at 18:40
  • Climb out of bed better suits those double and triple type bunk beds that are often seen in children's bedrooms, with a ladder attached. May 14, 2021 at 19:04
  • Feather beds engulf you. Climbing out makes it sound too easy! May 14, 2021 at 23:06

"Get out of bed" Is a normal way of saying it. Nothing unusual. "climb out" of bed indicates it was hard to do.


When I finally climbed out of bed, it was already 2pm

I got out of bed at 9am yesterday
