    The sites I found for a search says some are tested to 300lbs.
    This doesn't really account for movement ie if you put all your weight in one corner, side reaching for your mug of tea or accidentally fall back into it when getting up.
    This has some info but is still more of a sales pitch.
    This site explains what may happen, seems good. It mentions that some recliners go to 600lbs so worth a search.
    One thing to double check is if these figures apply to the UK manufacturing. Some US ones I'm guessing would be made for the more cuddly body

    The only normal people you know are the ones you don’t know very well
