How Much Does a Latex Mattress Weigh? - PlushBeds

The latex mattress has 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 mattress weight.

Latex Mattress Weight By the Numbers

Your natural latex mattress weight is based on the firmness and size of your order as seen in the below table.

For example, for a twin size mattress, which measures 38″ by 75,” the 9″ Botanical Bliss latex mattress weighs only 73 pounds. The 10″ weighs 83 pounds and the 12″ mattress weighs 104.

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 organic latex mattress measures 54″ by 75″ and weighs 106 pounds, 113 pounds, and 154 pounds for the 9, 10, and 12-inch version, respectively. Queen-sized mattresses are 60″ by 80″, and weight 121 pounds, 129 pounds, and 172 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, making for great support, 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 other latex mattress complaints that people might concern themselves over.

Factors Affecting the Weight of a Latex Mattress

The weight of a latex mattress can vary depending on several factors, including size, thickness, material quality, and layers.

Size: One of the most significant factors affecting the weight of a latex mattress is its size. Generally, larger mattresses will weigh more than smaller ones. For example, a Twin-size latex mattress will weigh less than a Queen-size or King-size mattress. However, it's important to note that the weight of a mattress can also vary depending on the exact dimensions of the mattress. Additionally, some manufacturers may use different materials or layering techniques for mattresses of the same size, which can also affect the weight.

Thickness: The thickness of a latex mattress also plays a significant role in its weight. As a general rule, thicker mattresses will weigh more than thinner ones. This is because thicker mattresses require more latex foam, which adds to the weight of the mattress. However, the weight can also vary, depending on the type of foam used in the mattress. For instance, a mattress with a thicker layer of low-density foam may weigh less than a thinner mattress made with higher-density foam.

Material Quality: The quality of the latex foam used in a mattress can also affect its weight. Higher-density latex foam will generally be denser and heavier than lower-density foam. Additionally, the manufacturing process used to create the foam can also impact the weight of the mattress. For instance, Dunlop latex foam is generally denser and heavier than Talalay latex foam, which is lighter and more breathable.

Layers: The number and type of layers used in a latex mattress can also impact its weight. Generally, a mattress with multiple layers of foam will be heavier than a mattress with only one layer of foam. However, the weight can also vary depending on the type of foam used in each layer. For example, a mattress with multiple layers of high-density foam will be heavier than a mattress with only one layer of low-density foam.

Consider the Frame and Foundation

In addition to considering the weight of the mattress itself, it's also important to think about the weight capacity of the bed frame or foundation that will support the mattress. Different bed frames and foundations have different weight limits, so it's essential to choose a frame or foundation that can support the weight of your mattress.

Managing the Weight – You Don’t Have to Go it Alone

The good news is that you don’t have to handle the mattress weight 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 to move a mattress, and your new mattress will be all set.

Should you not want to spend the extra money on white glove delivery, and the type of 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.
