How much does a memory foam weigh? Depending on the size of the memory foam, a twin size memory foam weighs between 40-50 pounds, queen size between 50-120 pounds and king size weighs between 160-180 pounds. The best memory foam mattresses are tempurpedic mattresses.
What Is a Tempurpedic Mattress?
Tempurpedic (brand name) uses tempur to make a mattress that precisely adapts to your body’s weight, shape, and temperature to reduce motion transfer, relieve pressure points and alleviate discomfort. This mattress produced by tempurpedic is known as tempurpedic mattress, and they use tempur, which is the highest quality of memory foam.
Tempurpedic mattresses are claimed to slightly massage the user’s body by taking the form of the user (since Tempur material is used to make them), and it is particularly loved by couples with partners that toss and turn a lot since it reduces motion transfer, reducing the level of discomfort that comes with sharing a bed with a partner that turns a lot on bed.

Does Heavier Tempurpedic Mattress Indicate Higher Quality?
The heavier Tempurpedic mattress does not necessarily mean higher quality. The Tempur cloud elite is considered the heaviest Tempurpedic mattress, but the best mattress according to experts and users is the tempur- Luxe breeze.
The tempur cloud elite and tempur luxe breeze mattress models are quite similar, but their differences include:
The tempur cloud elite has a second layer of 5.2-pound density, which makes it soft but not as soft as the tempur luxe with a 7.1 lb second layer making it softer than the tempur cloud elite.
The tempur cloud elite is suitable for side sleepers, while the tempur luxe elite is suitable for all sleepers, regardless of the position.
The tempur luxe breeze also features a removable and machine washable cover which is better compared to the non-removable cover which the tempur cloud elite features.
Memory Foam Mattress Weight Compared to Other Types of Mattresses
memory Foam Vs Latex
The weight of a mattress depends on a lot of factors including the mattress size (king-sized, queen size, etcetera), mattress type, and others. For a memory foam and latex mattress of the same size, the latex mattress will be heavier because latex is the heaviest material used to make mattresses. latex is very durable and supportive, and they are of two types, Dunlop and Talalay.
Talalay is lighter than Dunlop which makes Dunlop bed the heaviest bed you could get.
Although latex mattress is said to be heavier than memory foam mattress, some memory foams have cooling gels added, the gels can make them weigh similar to the latex mattress.
memory Foam Vs Air mattress
An air mattress is an expandable mattress made of polyvinyl chloride reinforced by rubber. when deflated, it becomes portable and can be easily stored or carried in a small form. It comes with a valve ( either a manual or electric pump) that is used to inflate it. It is suitable for when on a journey or when you have visitors without enough room to accommodate all of them.
Air mattresses are usually lightweight so that when deflated, they can be stored and carried around easily, which makes them significantly lighter than memory foam.
memory Foam Vs Innerspring
An innerspring mattress is a thin and easy-to-move mattress because it has a slim pillow top layer and a metal wire system combined with springs to create a support frame covered in fabric, the structure provides a great airflow throughout the sleep surface. The innerspring mattress is lightweight, compared to memory foam.
A 12-inch memory foam mattress normally weighs between 40 – 180 pounds depending on the size ( whether twin size, queen or king-size). A 12-inch twin-size mattress can weigh between 40-50 pounds, 50-120 pounds for queen-sized and 160-180 pounds for a king-sized mattress.
Depending on the brand, a 10-inch memory foam mattress typically weighs between 45-50 pounds.
Depending on the brand, an 8-inch memory foam mattress weighs between 40-45 pounds.
In a nutshell
Latex is the heaviest material used to make mattresses which makes latex mattresses the heaviest, followed by memory foam mattresses which have almost the same weight as the latex mattress with the added gel for cooling. The air mattress and innerspring mattress are the lightest types of mattresses. When it comes to Tempurpedic mattresses, the quality of the mattress does not depend on the weight, rather it depends on the types of materials used to make the different layers that make up the mattress.
