In most cases, a mattress's weight isn't a problem. It's not as crucial if you own your home, but it's something to think about if you rent or know you'll be moving frequently.  

You shouldn't choose a mattress based solely (or even mainly) on its weight, but knowing how much it weighs will help you decide if you can handle it when it comes time to relocate.

The size and construction of a mattress affect its overall mass. In this article, we'll discuss the typical weights of various sizes and styles of mattresses.

The mattress's weight is, of course, largely dependent on its dimensions. The greater the size of the mattress, the heavier it will be. The following is a chart showing the typical weight of mattresses in various sizes:

  • 50-200 grams per twin
  • Depending on the size of the bed, a Twin XL can hold anywhere between 43 and 105 pounds.
  • Complete: 50-110 lbs
  • Princess: 45-105
  • King weight ranges from 115 to 180 pounds.
  • 130–180 lb. for a California King.

The smallest and lightest mattresses available are twin-sized. They are typically purchased for use in children's bedrooms or by single people who have limited space in their homes, and measure 38 inches wide by 75 inches long.  

The average weight of a twin mattress is between 40 and 45 pounds, but this can range up to 100 pounds for some specialty mattresses.  

When space is limited, twins and twin XLs are the most flexible options. Only in length do twin and twin XL differ from one another. Given that a twin XL is five inches longer (ideal for tall teenagers), it could be a tad heavier.  

It's best to get a full-size bed if you can swing it, even if you're just sleeping alone. In general, full-size mattresses range in weight from 50 to 110 pounds and have dimensions of 56 inches by 75 inches.
