Natural latex mattresses have many benefits. From the solid construction and long life span of these mattresses to the customizability of them and the fact that they don’t wear down and become lumpy over the years, there are many things to love about these mattresses. Some people, though, wonder about the weight of the mattresses.
Weight By the Numbers
The weight of your natural latex mattress is based on the firmness and size of your order as seen in the below table.
9” Botanical Bliss
10” Botanical Bliss
12” Botanical Bliss
38” x 75”
38” x 80”
54” x 75”
60” x 80”
76” x 80”
72” x 84 “
For example, for a twin size mattress, which measures 38″ by 75,” the 9″ Botanical Bliss latex mattress weighs only 60 pounds. The 10″ weighs 75 pounds and the 12″ mattress weighs 100.
One person can easily manage the twin size, and even the twin XL mattress, which is five inches longer than the traditional twin-sized mattress and weighs five pounds more at every level of thickness.
The full size Botanical Bliss mattress measures 54″ by 75″ and weighs 95 pounds, 115 pounds, and 145 pounds for the 9, 10, and 12-inch version, respectively. Queen sized mattresses are 60″ by 80″ and weight 105 pounds, 130 pounds, and 170 pounds, respectively depending on mattress thickness.
What makes latex mattresses weighty?
It’s the fact that they’re packed with natural ingredients that are all mass no fluff. The latex foam rubber is naturally dense and extremely durable and resilient. There’s no need to worry about it getting lumpy or becoming concave. From the foam to the finishing mattress covers, you’ll only find natural, very stable ingredients in these mattresses.
This also means that you know what you’re sleeping on night after night and never need to worry about petrochemicals, off gassing, or any of the other concerns that people who purchase many other types of mattresses must concern themselves over.
Managing the Weight – You Don’t Have to Go it Alone
The good news is that you don’t have to handle the weight of your mattress alone if you don’t want to. PlushBeds offers the option of white glove delivery service for an additional $299. With this service, you get so much more than curbside delivery.
When the mattress arrives in your area, you’ll be notified and given a four-hour window for delivery. With the white glove delivery option, the team will deliver the mattress to the room of your choice, set it up, and take all the packaging with them. It doesn’t get more “no hassle” than that when it comes to delivery today. You won’t have to lift a finger and your new mattress will be all set.
Should you not want to spend the extra money on white glove delivery, and the mattress is a little weightier than you can manage on your own, with the help of a friend or family member (depending upon your physical condition) you can generally manage the lifting that it takes to get your mattress in place. And the wonderful thing is, that although your mattress is heavier than a traditional innerspring, unlike an innerspring mattress you are not going to be moving this mattress around to change it out because it will last you in excess of 25 years instead of 5-7 like innerspring.
Yes, latex mattresses do weigh a little more than your average innerspring mattress. Once you compare what’s inside the mattress though, you’ll see that it is all substance and no fluff — that it is well worth the extra weight.
