In the field of mattresses sold online, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. Saatva ships its mattresses via truckinstead of the form of a box. While, like other online sellers the company has quickly expanded its line, Saatva remains focused on a range of “luxury” models that are all costing in the range of the Youth model, more than $1,500 (for a queen). Saatva Manhattan
Sure, there’s a range of mattresses that are more lavish than Saatva’s. They have higher coil counts and finer materials.
However, we consider Saatva’s mattresses among the most beautiful and thoughtfully designed choices offered by an online retailer.
In the last two years, we’ve gathered to test our insidespring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom and Leaf, as well as the all-latex Zenhaven, and they’ve consistently earned a spot as one of our top choices in our guides to the best foam mattresses as well as the best innerspring mattresses.
We’ve also slept on the Saatva Mid-Latex Hybrid and have studied the design and construction of the other mattresses in the Saatva lineup.The majority of online mattresses are foams or hybrids, which is why it’s no surprise that the Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the few innerspring mattresses that you can buy online.
Pocketed coils provide this Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top. A cushioned top provides a feeling of softness. Additionally, like the other Saatva Company mattresses that are available, the Saatva Classic is delivered by movers, rather than in the form of a box. Saatva offers an extensive 180-day trial and easy returns.
The all-foam Loom & Leaf is constructed with more dense memory foam than other under-$1,000 mattresses, so it’s less likely to sag over time. This is why it’s ideal for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
The thick, quilted cover is more cushier, and more sturdy than the sock-like cover on most foam mattresses, and the cover helps the memory-foam layer underneath feel less as squishy.
As you’d expect with an innerspring mattress the Loom and Leaf is able to limit motion more that those with innersprings like the Saatva Classic.The all-foam Zenhaven is made up mainly of latex. Particularly Talalay latex. It is made from the rubber tree plant’s milky sap, and is intrinsically durable. Talalay is more flexible than Dunlop latex, which is typically used in less expensive latex mattresses we’ve tested.
Zenhaven is a good choice. Zenhaven is also flippable (the Luxury Plush side feels medium-firm, while Gentle Firm feels a bit firmer). Gentle Firm side feels a little more firm) This could be beneficial if you’re unsure what you prefer or if your preferences change over time.
This isn’t a traditional soft mattress, but it has a soft cushion, good edge support, as well as a mild springiness.
Due to its inherent durability and its suppleness, the Zenhaven is a good choice for people who weigh greater than 200 pounds. Saatva Manhattan
Making sense of Saatva
Saatva’s portfolio of beds-many with a choice of firmness levels and catering to almost every comfort preference-includes:
- Saatva Classic (innerspring)
- Loom & Leaf (all foam)
- Zenhaven (all latex)
- Saatva Latex Hybrid (latex with coils)
- Solaire (a Bed with adjustable air chambers)
- Saatva HD (a hybrid of latex and coils designed for sleepers who weigh between 300-500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil hybrid designed for kids ages 3 through 12)
We haven’t yet done a deep dive into the “natural” claims made by Saatva or of others “eco-friendly” brands.
But we do know that the company makes use of thistle or organic wool to act as a flame-retardant (as in contrast to fiberglass or chemicals) with only organic cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its mattress covers.
As do other online mattress companies, Saatva touts such extras as zoned layers for “optimal spine support” We’re not as impressed with those features and are more impressed with Saatva’s responsive customer service and durable foams and coils. Saatva Manhattan
Saatva Video Review
Who is it to be used forThe Saatva Classic is likely to suit people who prefer a cushy (but not too big and bulky) top layer and a sturdy, resilient feel. Its Luxury Firm model (Saatva’s “Medium” offering) that we tried will be suitable for the back, side-, and stomach-sleepers. The softer Plush Soft version is targeted to side-sleepers and the Firm version, for stomach and back-sleepers.
How it feels:We tested the Luxury Firm version of the Saatva Classic-the brand’s most sought-after model. We discovered it to be soft on top, and with excellent cushioning and bounce. It begins with a squarely medium-firm feel, however, it begins to soften after the break-in period of about a month.
What we like:The Saatva Classic is one of the very few innerspring mattresses you can buy online with the convenience typically associated with buying a boxed foam mattress. It contains 416 thick, robust coils in the base, for support, with 884 wrapped individually, more flexible coils on top for pressure relief. There’s also a bit of memory foam in the mix, though the real cushioning comes from a 3-inch polyfoam-and-fiber Euro top (an additional layer of cushion sewn underneath the top layer). The resultant feel is broad in appeal-supportive, resilient, and with a plushness that doesn’t feel bulky.
We tried the 14 1/2-inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm during a 2021 test group for springs (it’s offered in 11 inches) and it racked up the second highest number of top-pick scores (nine among 39 testers) in the $1,000 to $2,000 category (which included the Avocado, the Parachute, and the first-place WinkBed). Five of the nine test subjects loved the Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses in the test, including those that cost twice as much as the Saatva Classic. Two of the nine test participants chose it as their second favorite overall.
In the case of the test at home, I looked at it as if I could sleep in this bed every night. I’m not a fan of a billowy bed, so I appreciated its Euro top felt to me to be just the right amount of cuddle. The bed does have some bounce, but not so much that my husband’s rolling over made me wake up. To me, the buoyed-up feel was worth the tradeoff in motion-isolation.
Around $1,600 if it’s not on sale (though it’s often), the Saatva Classic is the least expensive innerspring mattress we’ve tried that feels substantial and luxurious. It also has the advantage the fact that you can pick from three firmness levels-Plush Luxurious Firm, Soft or Firm, so you’ll be able to find a good fit regardless of what position you sleep in. Contrary to the more soft WinkBed, another pick in the innerspring mattress guide, the Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by movers (so that the “new mattresses smell” has already dissipated in the factory and during transport), and this “white glove” delivery service is completely free. Saatva offers a huge 180-day trial period, as well as an extended warranty of 15 years.
We don’t like: If you’re not fond of a bouncy mattress, or you’re insensitive to your partner’s movements in bed it’s likely that you won’t be a fan of the Saatva Classic. Although the top coils are individually wrapped, the lower ones aren’t. so the bed has a bit more motion transfer than our other innerspring options, such as that of the WinkBed. If you don’t like any kind of bounce, you’re better off with Saatva’s Loom & Leaf.
The Saatva Classic also requires a period of time to break in. When we first tested the mattress, in 2018, it felt medium-firm; after a year and half later, we found that it had softened a little but in a nice way (at least for me). This is not an “Soft” mattress, however; those who like that may be interested in it out. Plush Soft version, which we haven’t tried yet.
The company boasts of an “active Lumbar Zone” technology for “additional back support” my spouse (who weighs just under 200 pounds) was still in search of more support from the Luxury Firm. He might have seen this in the firm version but we haven’t had the chance to test it at this point, therefore we don’t know for sure. In general, we’re not particularly impressed by zoned technology, because people have different heights and shapes, and they could spread out in a manner that doesn’t conform to the zoning patterns.
The foam density in the Saatva Classic are less than those found in Loom & Leaf which is the company’s foam-mattress offering. Although representatives of the company would not divulge the details, we were told the density of memory foam is at minimum 3 pounds in cubic feet, and the density of polyfoam is 1 1/2 pounds per cubic foot.
These aren’t as high as those of the Loom & Leaf, but the specs are typical of an innerspring bed, and especially one that’s priced in this range. In contrast to foam mattresses, this mattress’s steel coils provide an additional level of support, and the quilting may help to prevent body impressions.
However, as this Reddit post suggests, certain sleepers have had better results with their Saatva mattresses over many years than others; we believe this is based on the sleeper’s size and shape. As with all thick Euromattress – also known as a pillow-top mattress the heavier you weigh, the more you risk experiencing sagging and impressions over time.
So you’ll want to turn your mattress regularly at least every six months. You should also sleep on top of your bed.
Saatva Classic top owner-review feedback
We were able to find just 39 reviews from owners that were of high quality (those that didn’t seem fake or vague and were published recently, between the years 2019 and 2020). Although the sample size was relatively small, we think it’s notable that nearly 30% of positive comments praised Saatva’s customer service. That’s a much bigger percentage than what we’ve seen with other online mattress companies.
Also, six reviewers mentioned sagging as an issue; one of them weighed more than 200 pounds and the other had a lower weight or didn’t mention. All but one had owned the mattress for more than an entire year prior to the date of their review. This suggests that rotating the mattress is essential and heavier individuals who enjoy innersprings might consider the option of a mattress made from more durable latex foam, such as the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Saatva Manhattan
Saatva Loom & Leaf
Who it’s to be used for The all-foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who prefer a memory foam that cradles rather than engulfing them in a soft, slow hug. The more relaxed version may be best for side-sleepers. This version, called Firm is made for stomach or back sleepers. Anyone who weighs more than 200 pounds could also find the Firm to be more comfortable over the Relaxed version.
The way it feels:The Relaxed Firm is a mattress with a moderate firmness that holds you without pulling you in. The Firm (which we’ve tested only in the showroom) is much more firm.
We like: The 12-inch-thick Loom & Leaf comes with an extremely durable, quilted cover that’s similar to what you’d find on an innerspring mattress (by contrast, the majority of memory foam mattresses come with flimsier, sock-like covers). That cover contains its own foam padding that adds more depth to the normally one-note squishiness of cheaper memory-foam mattresses. I lay on the Relaxed Firm at home for more than an entire week and loved that it was soft and substantial in the same way. Our husband who prefers mattress that are firm, and weighs under 200 pounds-70 pounds more than me-felt it was too soft.
Whereas most online mattresses have a memory-foam density in the 3-pounds-per-cubic-foot range, the Loom & Leaf’s top layer has a 4-pounds-per-cubic-foot density with a gel-infused layer meant to assist with cooling (though cooling features like gel and perforations tend to have minimal impact). The mattress also has a 5-pounds-per-cubic-foot memory-foam layer underneath that top layer. Given those specs, we think this mattress will be less likely to slump or develop body indents as opposed to other foam mattresses even for those who weigh more than 200 pounds (though it may not be suitable in the case of those that weigh more than 250 pounds; see reviews from owners below). As with every foam mattress also provides excellent motion isolation.
We tested the Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses, which cost over $1,000) and found that 20 out of 29 people prefer the Loom & Leaf. “It was more comfortable” was the most frequent explanation; some even described it as being better “cushioned.” In the event that we tested it against it against the Casper Wave in 2019, the results were less unified (18 to the Wave; 16 , for it; 16 for the Loom & Leaf). People who went with that Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more conforming” feel or liked the feel of its quilting and those who opted for to go with the Casper Wave described the Wave as being more supportive and that the Loom & Leaf as making the feel of being “stuck.”
We are also pleased it that Loom & Leaf, like the rest of Saatva Company’s mattresses is delivered in a box, and by movers. It doesn’t require you to let it air out, like you do with numerous mattresses in boxes; the majority off-gassing has likely already been done in the factory.
What we don’t like: We wish Saatva offered a firmness level between Relaxed Firm and Firm-the two levels appear to be at least a few gradations apart. And although it is true that the Loom & Leaf has better edge support than other popular models on the internet (such as the Leesa or the Casper), it isn’t as sturdy as a combination (like those like the Leesa Hybrid or Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom and Leaf’s cool gel as well as the pin-core (punctured) design that is featured in the top layer, I was able to sleep quite warmer on this mattress which was surprising considering that I’m always cold. Given that it was mid-winter of winter, I didn’t mind the cold at all. The tiny holes designed for cooling could affect the durability in the mattress, but probably only slightly. Since this Loom & Leaf has a top layer memory-foam density of four grams per cubic foot it should still prove more durable than your standard $1,000-or-less online foam mattress.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We have only found 16 recent, high-quality reviewers of the Loom & Leaf. Like Saatva Classic, as with Saatva Classic, good customer service stands out from the positive reviews. In the years 2019 and 2020, more reviewers described their experience with the Loom & Leaf as “too firm” than “too smooth.” But, it’s hard to determine its feel. Many reviewers didn’t mention whether they’d purchased either the Relaxed Firm or Firm.
Also, we noticed that reviewers who are heavier tend to describe the Loom & Leaf as too soft, or even too saggy. For instance, we found comments on Reddit concerning the Relaxed Firm version not being firm enough for people who weigh more than 250 pounds. If that is the case, then look into the Firm version (though it’s very firm) or alternatively, the The Tempur-Adapt (which also features dense foam, but with a distinct memory-foam hug). If you weigh well over 200 pounds, you should consider the Zenhaven, which is constructed with intrinsically more-durable latex foam. Saatva Manhattan
Do we recommend it? Yes.
Who is it for: Its latex foam Zenhaven is a good choice for people that sleep at any angle, but especially those who prefer a soft cushion that doesn’t give the “sunk-in” sensation. It’s also good for people of all weights that include those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
How it feels: The foam mattress is flippable and comes with handles to help you easily select between two choices that are: The Luxury Plush aspect is on the softer end of the medium-firm range, and is ideal for those who sleep on their sides. This side’s Gentle Firm side offers a slightly firmer feel (the company claims that it’s 20 percent firmer, which is what we think it is).
What we like: Zenhaven Zenhaven is made up of two latex layers (one of which is zoned to provide pressure points and lower-back support however this could or may not be helpful according to your body size and position on your bed). Latex is a kind of foam made by the milky sap of the rubber tree plant, and it is much better than polyurethane or memory foam. Therefore, we believe that this mattress will prove durable for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
We like that the Zenhaven is constructed specifically from Talalay latex, which feels more soft than Dunlop latex that is commonly used in cheaper, stiffer latex mattresses, such as the Sleep On Latex Pure Green. Both the luxurious Plush and Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven are incredibly soft and springy, but not elasticky. The whole bed is also more comfortable than beds made mostly with Dunlop latex.
I slept upon the Zenhaven for a few months. Personally, I prefer a soft feeling (like it’s counterpart, the Saatva Classic), but the Luxury Plush aspect of the Zenhaven was becoming more appealing to me. After using it for a couple of weeks, I came to appreciate its soft slightly springy surface as well as its cushioned cradle.
My 10-year-old son also likes playing on it, and the Zenhaven’s motion isolation does not stop me from experiencing that. It’s enough to ensure that I don’t feel the need to notice my husband’s movements in the evening. The edge support is higher than the majority of foam mattresses, including on the Loom & Leaf.
My husband, who is just under 200 pounds and usually sleeps on his back, has found Zenhaven to be more comfortable and appealing. Zenhaven to be more substantial and attractive than the memory foam Loom & Leaf The Relaxed Soft or Saatva Classic Luxury Firm. Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is shipped by movers and not in a box, which means it’s less likely to give off that new-mattress smell in your home. It’s possible to switch between the softer Luxury Plush side and the Gentle Firm side as your preferences and needs change, or if you are unsure of the firmness level you’d like. Because the mattress is heavy (the queen is 130 weight), Saatva will send movers to help you by completing a single “courtesy” flip.
The things we don’t love about HTML0:Although the Zenhaven has a more-supple feel than many other online all-latex mattresses but it’s less luxurious than similarly priced innersprings as well as traditional foam mattresses because it’s not typically “fluffy.” It was the only 2 (of 29) staff members who liked it better than the other models in our test of 2020 foam and hybrid mattresses said they enjoyed the fact that it was supportive and they thought it would last a long time. (In the latex category, most staffers in our blind test preferred the PranaSleep Lotus Asana 6 in Plush, which has a latex-polyurethane-foam construction and costs over $1,000 more than the Zenhaven.)
Since the Zenhaven is extremely heavy and has two sides and two-sided, it must be placed on a solid, high-quality platform bed, or a frame and boxspring in good shape. Saatva sells a frame with a boxspring (which comes in two heights) and a frame made of metal.
Zenhaven top reviews of the owner
We could find only 18 quality reviews of owners for the Zenhaven-too small a sample size to offer any conclusive, objective, and non-subjective information that go beyond the satisfactory customer service. However, we did discover an extremely descriptive review from a long-term owner with no weight (though he did claim that his height was 6’4 inches in height).
He stated that after a year a half, he still loved its cushion and durability however, as he hadn’t been rotating the mattress, the impression on his hip was evident and when he began rotating the mattress once every six months, he claimed the imprint disappeared. We’ll update this page after we’ve gathered more high-quality reviews. Saatva Manhattan
Saatva Latex Hybrid
Who is it intended forThe Saatva Latex Hybrid is most suited to those who prefer durability over extravagantness. It’s great for stomach- and back-sleepers as well as those who toss and turn often. It’s durable enough for most people, including those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
How it feels:This 13-inch latex-and-coil hybrid is at the soft end of medium-firm. It’s distinctly buoyant and slightly bouncy, and has some cushioning and cradling. It’s not a plush mattress, though, and you sleep more in the mattress rather than within it.
What we love:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is built using high-quality materials and techniques for construction. The quilted top, constructed out of cotton, and wool (a natural flame retardant) is hand-tufted onto the layers beneath it. Tufting (commonly found on furniture or traditional-style mattress innersprings) is a kind of heavy-duty stitching that binds the layers and has more durability than glue and eliminates the chemical smell of adhesives. The peaks and valleys made by tufting could aid in minimizing any visible body impressions, and more so than the smooth-topped, sock-covered mattresses that you usually see in hybrids sold online.
Though most hybrids place a layer of polyurethane foam on top of coils Saatva’s Saatva Latex Hybrid uses 3 inches of Talalay latex foam (which is plenty, in comparison with the pricey Casper Wave, which uses less). Latex is inherently more durable and breathable than memory foams or polyurethane. Talalay latex, also used in Zenhaven mattress, is a more breathable and soft-feeling foam in comparison to the Dunlop varieties that are typically found in lower-priced latex mattresses.
Wirecutter’s supervising editor Wendy Schley tested the Saatva Latex Hybrid for a few months at home. She found it strong and supportive. “It seems almost buoyant,” she said. “There’s some cushioning but it’s not luxurious in the way that a luxurious mattress would be.” Wendy found that the mattress was bouncy springy feeling that reminded her of an innerspring. She also was never stuck. However, the latex foam did provide some motion isolation. Edge support was superb thanks to the thick (13 3/4 -gauge) 8-inch coils around the edge.
Because of its breathable materials (the Talalay latex, cotton cover and wool layer at the top) as well as the coils in the middle, it is believed that the Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all foam mattresses or hybrids made from polyfoams. Wendy who is known to have hot sleep, discovered it to be cooler than the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be considerably cooler than the other mattresses, though we haven’t yet tested it during summer.
We haven’t seen enough quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to identify any trends, however, we’ll update as we find.
What we don’t like: Though the coils are wrapped individually however, there’s a bit of motion transfer, due to it’s just that, coils. This isn’t as significant as movement transfer that’s present on Saatva Classic, but it’s more pronounced than with all-foam alternatives such as those from the Loom & Leaf or Zenhaven.
A queen-size Latex Hybrid contains 789 coils (fewer than the other hybrid mattresses, such as the The Tempur-Adapt and the Leesa Hybrid, which have around 1,000). When a mattress is less dense than coils, it sometimes means the mattress won’t adjust to your body. But the resilient feel of the latex layer more than makes more up for it.
As Wendy has experienced her experience, as Wendy experienced, the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an ahhh sort of mattress. It’s like it’s lifting you up instead of tucking you in. And it may not provide enough cushioning to offer enough pressure relief to side sleepers as well as back-sleepers who need extra cushioning on specific joints.
Wendy sleeping on both her back and side and has reported that she’s woke up with soreness in her lower back and shoulders following her sleep on the Saatva Latex Hybrid. If you’re looking for something more luxurious, you might prefer Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf. Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf (both come in multiple degree of firmness, with some that feel softer than the Saatva Latex).
The tufting of the Latex Hybrid’s is highlighted by beautiful yarn tassels. They are pretty, but they are apparently flimsily attached as One of the yarn tassels that were on the mattress Wendy tested unraveled after a few weeks. Saatva Manhattan
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
The Saatva Solaire can be described as an adjustable-air mattress, made of foam on the top of air chambers which can be programmed to the level you prefer by using a remote. We haven’t had the chance to test the Solaire yet, but we’ll update this article when we have. While we wait, let us be discussing the information we have.
Saatva has introduced Solaire in the year 2019 to be able to compete with Sleep Number’s high-end i8 mattress. Apart from air chambers and remotes The Solaire comes with a pillow top, a Talalay the layer of latex, as well as the gel-infused memory foam layer. It’s also cheaper by $650 that the Sleep Number I8.
The remote comes with 50 options, compared with Sleep Number’s 20, but realistically we’re not sure whether people even need this many. At a glance, the comfort components look like they’d provide a more-curve-conforming cradle than Sleep Number’s polyurethane foam layers.
But, as always, we can’t know whether they’re the best choice until we lay on the mattress. Solaire’s Talalay latex materials suggest longevity, but because Sleep Number doesn’t divulge details on its foam components, it isn’t possible to claim that one mattress is more durable than the other.
Whether you choose one of the twins or a king or something else You can purchase Solaire Solaire with any dimension you want as the standard model. Or, if you choose either a queen or a King, you can upgrade to the Upper-Flex queen or king, or split king, all of which have dual air chambers, so sleep partners can pick the firmness level they prefer.
The standard model works on all bed frames (including bases that can be adjusted). The Upper-Flex queen king and the split king options are designed to be specifically compatible with adjustable bases, which allow the two sides to adjust separately.
Saatva Company offers adjustable frames. Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, which include those with the Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Upper-Flex. With the Upper-Flex frame, couples can utilize a remote to place their shoulders and head separately (for instance, one person can lie flat to sleep while the other sits up and reads or reads a book).
The upper-flex frame designed specifically for the split king Solaire will also permit both to raise their bodies separately. We couldn’t locate enough high-quality owner reviews to include here, but we’ll update this guide when we’re in a position to try the bed out ourselves and collect more reviews. Saatva Manhattan
Similar to the Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf the Saatva HD has a pillowy, quilted top layer, however the firm coils and foam underneath are said to support heavier weights.We’re particularly curious about the top of the pillow in the HD because experts told us that for those who are heavier, pillow tops could be especially susceptible to indentation.
The HD’s other components, however, seem promising as far as durability is concerned: There is a latex layer, which is typically stronger than memory foam, as well as a memory-foam layer, which has a density of 5 pounds per cubic foot (more than the 4-pounds-per-cubic-foot minimum that experts typically recommend for people who weigh over 200 pounds). Additionally the HD’s 12 1/2 gauge coils are more dense than those found in the company’s other models and the coils in rival models, such as The Big Fig.
But these aren’t necessarily the only criteria that affect the durability of a mattress as well as its durability on its own isn’t enough to make a good mattress. We’ll explore the issues in a forthcoming guide to mattresses for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly strongly suggests” that you place this mattress on a sturdy platform bed that has vertical center support.
If not, they advised us that you should buy the HD together with the “high endurance” wood-slat foundation.Also, we found a few user reviews that were positive. After we’ve had enough data to glean any trends and try the mattress out, we’ll give an update. Saatva Manhattan
The Saatva Youth is the company’s innovative coil-and-foam mattress for children costs more than mattresses designed for adults. However, it is double-sided, featuring the coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam and a mattress that can be able to grow with the kid.
The first side is intended for children aged 3 to 7, and it consists of zoned polyfoam with densities ranging from 1.4 and 1.8 kg per cubic foot.
On the other side, designed for kids older than that (the company claims between ages 8 and 12) the density of foam can be as high as 1.5 pounds per cubic foot and somewhat less spongy due to its pairing with the more firm side that’s part of the coil. The 13 3/4 gauge coils vary from 330 in a twin up to 350 when a twin is XL and 462 for a full.
The Saatva Youth is 10 inches thick and bunk-bed-friendly-as long as the bed’s guardrail is at least 5 inches higher than the mattress, for safety reasons. Those who prefer natural materials may appreciate the fact that the mattress is wrapped in a quilted, thick organic cotton cover. It also uses thistle pulp (as opposed to chemical sprays or fiberglass) as the flame retardant. We haven’t yet tested this mattress and we haven’t seen any online reviews. We’re hoping to evaluate it for a future guide to mattresses for kids.
The Saatva Youth is the company’s new bed made of coils and foams for children is more expensive than mattresses for grown-ups. It is however double-sided, featuring a coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam, so the mattress can expand with the child.
Its first layer is intended for children aged 3 to 7, and it consists of zoned polyfoam with densities ranging from 1.4 and 1.8 tons per square foot.
On the other side, intended for older kids (the company states that it’s for between ages 8 and 12), the foam density can be as high as 1.5 grams per cubic foot. It’s also a bit softer because it’s paired with the firmer section of coil. The 13 3/4 -gauge coils range from 330 to a twin to 350 for a twin-XL. They also go up to 462 in the full.
