I got a 155D and a 157D and they are both right at 75 pounds. My Sin is 3" taller and also 75 pounds. I try to keep them under 80. It starts getting ugly after that. For me anyway. Others can deal with much heavier dolls, but my back has limits at my age and size.

I'm mid 40s, had my share of injuries including a fall a couple years ago, caved in my right side.
I've always been fairly fit, but last couple years my body has started to catch up to me...
I think I'm going to try a mid size girl first, would you say that 145-150 would be a good starting point?

Below 150 seems too short to me. I had a 140 and didn't like her. Try to get one tall enough but still a manageable weight.

I live away from home, usually small cabbin or 2 room rental, or camper.
Primary use as cuddle buddy with benefits.
I typically sleep on a twin or double bed...
(my first wife was 5'9@280+lb and we slept in a twin for 5 years)
I am a smother er in bed, lock myself around my partner.
As far as my stats 6'1"@200 flat (peak weight for me) slender to athletic frame till I fell a couple of years ago and am still recovering... started getting "soft" in the middle, guess you could say I've traded a 6pack for a 12pack.
Hopefully never a keg, but I am in my mid 40s. Since you guys are familiar with Doll etiquette and their behavioral characteristics you advise and I'll read every word.

A 12 pack! Wow! Oh wait... Never mind! :facepalm:
I can only speak for myself. Everyone is different. I'm 57, and 5'6" 200. Not good, but I'm no weakling. That said, my back is damaged goods. I got three 75 pounders, and the rest are less. I try to keep them under 80 to avoid further back damage. Smoke is about my size, and he's got a 100 pound behemoth. Mahtek is smaller than me, and he's got some whoppers. It comes down to how much doll do you need, and how much weight can you handle? Only you can decide that. All mine but one are over 5' tall. That midget comes in handy when I'm tired or my back needs a break. LOL!

My 49 pound, 4'1" midget.  :laugh:

Consider this: I've noticed personally that weight is both a physical number and mental number.

I see the current doll weights as relatively light - my first doll, Charlie, a Realdoll was approx 95lbs back in 2001. Had some heavier since then, the heaviest was a custom RD Body 3 at 135 lbs. The 135 lbs never felt manageable. But Charlie at 95, I got used to over the course of time.

As for back issues: yea, here too unfortunately. 3 major car accidents. Neck cracked in 8 places, lower back degenerative, tons of PT and I visit a gagggle of chiros. And I'm a svelte (kidding) 250 lbs old fart.

My latest dolls are 140 and 155 cm. I can do one of two things when showing them to somebody:
1) I explain how realistic they are, including their weight, and describe it as ""dead" and she isn't going to help balance
2) I say, "Charlie over there is 95 lbs. They've done a lot of advancements over the years and these new dolls are much lighter"

And, as expected, the response differs depending on whether I introduce them using technique 1 vs 2 above.

It even works when I tell myself those phrases. When I concentrate on how jacked my back is, and I go to lift a doll, she's heavy as a rock. If I concentrate on how so much lighter they are than Charlie, they're somewhat light. Try that technique with a bag of sugar.. it's heavy if you convince yourself it's heavy and it's light if you convince yourself it''s light. All within reason of course.

Irregardless, if weight is a factor, here's a list of weights in lbs (lightest to heaviest) that may help. Not sure if you're considering TPE vs Silicone, I just listed 3 major TPE manufacturers here. Note: weights vary consierably for a variety of reasons. Most of these are manufacturers stated weights (even those change, are estimates, and vary over time)  - use as a very general guide.

WM 140A 51
WM 140D 51
JY 140C 53
JY 140DD 55
JY 148D 55
WM 135C 55
YL 135C 55
WM 155A 58
WM 142G 60
WM 145D 60
WM 153A 60
WM 155L 62
WM 156B 62
WM 158D 62
WM 168A 62

JY 156P 73
YL 155D 75
YL 150O 78
JY 166F 79
WM 161G 79
WM 150G 80
WM 152H 82

YL 160M 87
WM 168E 88
WM 158C 90

Hope this helps.

That is a sexy midget...

Helpful seeing weights and heights by those 3 popular TPE Doll makers side-by-side...

I really gave no idea how to simulate a Dolls weight, they're not exactly in a 2x2 box where 60lbs is ok.
I do believe that experience handling Dolls makes a big difference in how much Doll you can handle.

Perhaps one thing you may not have considered: prior to moving my TPE dolls, I always remove the head. On my silicone dolls, only their face removes which is insignificant.

I have the head/neck magnet connectors so it's quick, preserves the wig and hair, but more importantly removes aprrox 5 to 8 lbs off the total weight and makes the center of gravity move more centric, so a bride carry becomes a possibility.

I've always carried all my dolls bride-style, which is probably the most injury risk prone to me, but less injury prone for the doll, when considering potential skin stretch whilst grabbing around arm pits, waists and such.

Don't forget, with standing dolls, you can always leverage their standing ability (not totally, but a little) to help them get up from a couch or lay back.

Having moved dolls for over 15 years, another thing I might mention as a personal observation: my weight has varied from 170 lbs to 250 lbs. I did notice between 170 and 190 lbs that the amount of weight I could carry went up slightly as I got heavier. After my weight reached 200 lbs, my carrying capacity didn't change as I approached 250. Emphasis shifted to how much strength I had in two areas: leg squat and core. If you want the doll to feel lighter, just do planks and squats - nothing gym like, just switch between them day to day over time - maybe spend 2 mins max per day. That has given me more carrying power over anything else - this is me, remember - my individual weak point is my jack back, so naturally core and leg power relleves my back, but I'd imagine even on a healthy frame it would likely produce a similar payoff.

I noticed that the TPE doll manufacturers post the weight of just the bodies without the head. Either that or they are off by 10 pounds. Granted the head doesn't weigh 10 pounds, but at least it is closer.

Shelby is a WM 140 and weighs 61lbs. with her head.

Interesting....
YL128: 49 pounds
WM155DD: 62
RD2 Body B: 68
YL155D: 75
Jellynew 157D: 75
Sin 1H: 75
All dolls weighed with head. Had a JY140D but failed to weigh her. She was about 55 pounds. In the box (from WM155) with 4 wigs and several other extras she weighed 70 at UPS. My WM155 is definitely noticeably heavier, and should be 6-8 pounds heavier than your 140.  It's possible your scales are a bit off. Mahtek's Body F seems to weigh 10 pounds less than yours.

Just weighed some of my dolls on a calibrated digital scale. completely nude, with heads/faces:

WM 140D with head = 52.1
WM 155DD (or L) with head = 61.8
RD Classic Body 5 with face = 88.0
RD Classic Body 7 with face = 93.8
MLD with head = 33.9
CJ - RD Gen 1 Original Classic Body 2 integrated head = 82.2

Didn't weigh my Classic Body 9, but her tit weight alone is substantial, guessing at least 95 lbs overall

Note:
CJ used to weigh ~95 lbs on my old dial scale.
RD2s of today are much lighter than my Classics

And yes, I did the "she's light" mental trick before each hoist. When I got to my B9 my mind couldnt help but think "man those tits are HUGE" and voila, mind equated it to heavy and couldn't lift her. Well, I could, but fears of laying helpless on the floor with 95 lbs of sili on me with breast suffocation happening came to mind. Can't lift whilst laughing.

That would make for an interesting throwback song on how to kill your lover...
Bet Paul Simon never had killer Dolls in mind...
