In the crowded field of mattresses sold online, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. Saatva ships its mattresses via trucks, not in a box. And even though, like other online sellers the company has quickly expanded its line, Saatva remains focused on a range of “luxury” models, each priced less than its Youth model, which is more than $1500 (for one queen size). Saatva Matt
There’s no doubt that there’s a galaxy of mattresses that are more luxurious than Saatva’s, featuring more coils and better materials.
We find Saatva’s mattresses among the most elegant-looking and thoughtfully designed options offered by an online retailer.
Over the last 2 years we’ve tested the Innerspring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom and Leaf, as well as the all-latex Zenhaven, and they’ve consistently placed as one of our top choices in our guide to the best foam mattresses and the top innerspring mattresses.
We’ve also experienced sleeping on Saatva’s Saatva Mid-Latex Hybrid, and we’ve researched the components and construction of the other mattresses in the Saatva lineup.Most online mattresses are hybrids or foams, so this Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the very few innerspring mattresses that you can purchase online.
Pocketed coils give the Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top. The extra soft top makes it more comfortable. As with all of the Saatva Company’s mattresses that are available, the Saatva Classic is delivered by movers, rather than in boxes. Saatva offers an extensive 180-day trial and simple returns.
All-foam Loom & Leaf is constructed with more dense memory foam than the majority of mattresses that cost less than $1,000, which means it’s less likely to sag in time. This is why it’s better for people who weigh over 200 pounds.
The quilted, thick cover is more cushier, and more sturdy than the sock-like cover on most foam mattresses, and it makes the memory foam underneath feel less as squishy.
As you’d expect with an innerspring mattress, the Loom and Leaf reduces motion better as compared to the innerspring Saatva Classic.The all-foam Zenhaven consists mostly of latex, specifically Talalay latex, which is made of the rubber tree’s milky sap, and is intrinsically robust. Talalay is more flexible than Dunlop latex and is usually found in cheaper latex mattresses that we’ve tried.
Zenhaven is a good choice. Zenhaven can be flippable (the Luxury Plush side feels medium-firm, whereas it’s Gentle Firm side feels a little more firm), which might prove useful if you’re not certain what you prefer or if your preferences change over time.
It’s not a typical cushy mattress, but it offers a supple cushion, good edge support, and a slight springiness.
Due to its inherent robustness, the Zenhaven will be suitable for those who weigh greater than 200 pounds. Saatva Matt
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 and 500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil hybrid for children ages 3-12)
We haven’t done a deep dive into what we consider to be the “natural” claims of Saatva or other “eco-friendly” brands.
We do know that the company makes use of thistle pulp or organic wool to act as a flame-retardant (as opposed to chemicals or fiberglass) and only organic cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its covers.
Like other mattress brands online, Saatva touts such extras as zoned layers to provide “optimal spine support” We’re not as satisfied with these features, but we’re more impressed by Saatva’s responsive customer service and durable foams and coils. Saatva Matt
Saatva Video Review
Who’s it for:The Saatva Classic is likely to suit those who prefer a cushy (but not overly big and bulky) top layer as well as the feel of a solid, durable. Its Luxury Firm version (Saatva’s “Medium” product) We tested it is a good choice for people who are back-, side-, and stomach-sleepers. The softer Plush Soft version is geared to side-sleepers and the Firm versioncaters for stomach and back-sleepers.
How it feels:We tested the Luxury Firm version of the Saatva Classic, the model with the most popularity-and found it to be cushy on top, and with excellent cushioning and bounce. It has an incredibly firm feel but it softens slightly after a period of break-in time of about a month.
We like:The Saatva Classic is one of the few innerspring mattresses that can be purchased online without the ease more typically associated with buying an inflatable foam mattress. It contains 416 thick, sturdy coils at the base, for support, and 884 individually wrapped, more-pliable coils on top for pressure relief. There’s also a bit of memory foam in the mix, though the actual cushioning comes from the 3-inch polyfoam and fiber Euro top (an extra layer of cushion sewn under the top). The resulting feel has broad appeal: it’s a bit bouncy, resilient, and supportive with a plushness that doesn’t feel overwhelmingly billowy.
We tested the 14 1/2-inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm in a group test of springs (it’s additionally available in 11 1/2″), and it captured the second highest number of top-rated votes (nine among 39 test participants) in the category of $1,000 to $2,000 (which included three other mattresses: the Avocado, the Parachute and the top-ranked WinkBed). Five of the nine testers loved the Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses in the same test, including those that cost twice as expensive as the Saatva Classic. Two of the nine testers chose the Saatva Classic as their second choice overall.
As for the home test I was looking at the prospect of sleeping in this bed every night. I’m not a fan overly billowy bed, so I appreciated how the Classic’s Euro top felt to me like just the ideal amount of cuddling. The bed has some bounce however not enough that my husband’s tumbling over woke me up-to me, the buoyed up feel was worth the sacrifice in motion isolation.
Around $1,600 if it’s not for sale (though it often is) It’s a good value at around $1,600. Saatva Classic is the least expensive innerspring mattress that we’ve tested that feels thick and luxurious. It also has the advantage the fact that you have the option of choosing between three levels of firmness-Plush Luxurious Firm, Soft or Firm. This means you’ll find the right one regardless of the position you sleep in. Unlike the more-billowy WinkBed, another pick in the innerspring mattress guide The Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by the movers (so that the “new mattress smell” has already dissipated in the factory and in transit), and this “white glove” delivery is absolutely free. Saatva offers a huge 180-day trial period as well as a 15-year warranty.
The things we do not love: If you don’t like the bounce of a mattress, or if you’re sensitive to your sleeping partner’s movements in bed You probably won’t enjoy this mattress. Saatva Classic. Although the top coils are individually wrapped the lower ones aren’t. therefore, the bed offers a bit more motion transfer than our other innerspring options like those from the WinkBed. If you’re not keen on any bounce at all, 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; one year and a half later, we found that it softened bit however in a pleasing way (at at least to me). It’s not a “Soft” mattress, however; those who prefer that might be interested in the Plush Soft version, which we haven’t tested yet.
The company boasts of an “active Lumbar Zone” technology for “additional back support” my husband (who weighs just under 200 pounds) still craved more support from the Luxury Firm. It could be that he seen it in the Firm version, but we haven’t had the chance to test the technology at this point, therefore we aren’t able to be sure. We are not overly impressed with zoned technology, because people have various sizes and shapes and they may spread in ways that don’t match the zoning patterns.
The foam densities in the Saatva Classic are less than those found in Loom & Leaf, the company’s foam-mattress offering. Although company representatives wouldn’t divulge the details, we were told the density of memory foam is at minimum three pounds for each cubic foot and the density of polyfoam is 1 1/2 pounds per cubic foot.
This isn’t as great than the density of the Loom & Leaf, but the specifications are standard of an innerspring bed, especially ones in this price range. Contrary to foam mattresses these mattresses’ steel coils offer an additional level of support, and the quilting may help to prevent body impressions.
But , as in this Reddit post suggests, certain sleepers have had more success using their Saatva mattresses over the course of several years than others; we think this likely depends on the shape and size of the sleeper. Similar to all Europillows, or mattresses with a pillow top, the more you weigh the greater chance of getting imprints and sagging over time.
So you’ll want to rotate your mattress diligently at least once 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 which didn’t appear untrue or unclear and were published recently, between the years 2019 and 2020). While the sample size is rather small, it’s notable that nearly 30% of the favorable reviews praised Saatva’s service to customers. That’s a much bigger percentage than what we’ve seen from other online mattress companies.
We also observed that six reviewers mentioned sagging as the cause of their discomfort. One of these reviewers weighed more than 200 pounds while the others had a lower weight or didn’t mention. The majority of them had owned the mattress for more than an entire year prior to the date they wrote their reviews. This indicates that turning the mattress is vital; heavier people who like innersprings may want to consider a mattress with intrinsically more-durable latex foam, such as that of the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Saatva Matt
Saatva Loom & Leaf
What it’s designed for: All-foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who prefer a memory foam that wraps around rather than engulfing them in a soft, slow hug. The soft Relaxed Firm model is a good choice for those who sleep on their sides. The Firm version is made to be used by stomach- or back-sleepers. People who weigh more than 200 pounds might be able to find the Firm version to be more supportive over the Relaxed version.
What it feels like:The Relaxed Firm is an average-firm mattress that supports you without tying you in; the Firm (which we’ve tested only in a showroom) is much more firm.
We like: The 12-inch thick Loom & Leaf comes with an extremely durable, quilted cover similar to that you’d find on an innerspring mattress (by contrast, the majority of memory foam mattresses are made of sock-like, thin covers). This cover comes with its own foam padding, which adds an additional dimension to the usually one-note squishiness of cheaper memory-foam mattresses. I slept on the Relaxed Firm at home for more than a week, and I enjoyed the fact that it was soft and substantial but also firm. The husband of mine, who likes firm mattresses and weighs just under 200 pounds-70 pounds more than me-thought 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 is less likely to sag or form body indentions as opposed to other foam mattresses even for people who weigh over 200 pounds (though perhaps not in the case of those that weigh greater than 250 pounds; see the owner review feedback below). Like any foam mattress, it has a high-quality motion isolation.
We compared our Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses that cost over $1,000) and found that 20 out of 29 people preferred that of the Loom & Leaf. “It was softer” was the most frequent reason; a few said it was less “cushioned.” In the event that we tested with Casper Wave Casper Wave in 2019 and the results were more split (18 in favor of the Wave; 16 , for it; 16 for the Loom & Leaf). People who went with the Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more flexible” feeling or the feel of its quilting while those who went with more of the Casper Wave described the Wave as having more support and it was more supportive. Loom & Leaf as making them feel more “stuck.”
We also appreciate our appreciation that Loom & Leaf, like the rest of Saatva Company’s mattresses is delivered unboxed, by moving trucks. That means you don’t have to air it out, like numerous mattresses in boxes; the majority off-gassing will have been done at the factory.
We don’t love HTML0: We wish Saatva had a firmness level that was between Relaxed Firm and Firm-the two levels are at a minimum, a few degrees between them. While Loom & Leaf Loom & Leaf has better edge support than some of the more well-known online models (such such as Leesa or the Casper), it isn’t as sturdy as a Hybrid (like that of the Leesa Hybrid or Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom and Leaf’s cooler gel, as well as its pin core (punctured) design touted on the top layer, I slept a bit warmer on this mattress which was a surprise since I’m usually cold. However, given that it was mid-winter of the winter season, I don’t feel any of it. The tiny holes made for cooling could affect the durability in the mattress, however likely only a little. Because it is the Loom & Leaf has a top layer of memory foam that weighs 4 tons per cubic foot it should still prove more durable than the typical foam mattress that costs less than $1,000.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We only found 16 recent, high-quality user reviews for the Loom & Leaf. Similar to Saatva Classic, as with Saatva Classic, good customer service stands out among the positive feedback. In the years 2019 and 2020 many reviewers described the Loom & Leaf as “too firm” than “too smooth.” However it’s difficult to draw conclusions about its texture. Many reviewers didn’t mention whether they’d purchased one of the Relaxed Firm or Firm.
We also observed that heavier reviewers tend to describe that the Loom & Leaf as too soft, or even too loose or even. We found comments on Reddit regarding the Relaxed Firm version not being firm enough for those who weigh around 250 pounds. If that is your case, try using the Firm version (though it’s very stiff) as well as the the Tempur-Adapt (which is also made of dense foam, but it has a more distinct memory foam hug). If you weigh more than 200 pounds, it’s time to think about the Zenhaven that is constructed with intrinsically more-durable latex foam. Saatva Matt
Do we recommend it? Yes.
Who is it intended for The latex-foam Zenhaven will suit those that sleep at any angle, especially those who prefer a soft cushion, but without that “sunk-in” feeling. It’s also great for those of all weights, including those who weigh over 200 pounds.
How it feels: The foam mattress is flippable, and it has handles that allow you to choose between two options The Luxury Plush side is at the gentle side of the medium-firm spectrum, and is suitable for sleepers who are side-sleepers. The Gentle Firm side offers a slightly firmer sensation (the company claims that it’s 20 percent more firmer, and that sounds right to us).
What we likeabout it: The Zenhaven comprises of two latex layers (one of which is zoned to provide lower-back support and pressure points however this could or could not be useful according to your body size and where you sleep on your mattress). Latex is a foam made from the milky sap the rubber tree, and it is intrinsically more durable than polyurethane foam or memory foam. Therefore, we think that this mattress is more sturdy for people who weigh over 200 pounds.
We are impressed this mattress because the Zenhaven is constructed specifically out of Talalay latex that feels more supple than the Dunlop latex typically found in less expensive, stiffer latex mattresses, such as the Sleep on Latex Pure Green. The Luxury Plush as well as the Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven are incredibly soft and springy, but not flexible. The whole bed is also more comfortable than mattresses made of Dunlop latex.
I lay in the Zenhaven for several months. Personally, I prefer a soft feel (like that of the Saatva Classic) however, the Luxury Plush aspect of the Zenhaven had grown on me. After putting it to the test for a couple of weeks, I began to appreciate its supple 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 feeling it. However, it’s sufficient that I don’t feel the need to notice my husband’s movements during the night. Edge support on the Zenhaven is slightly superior to that of many foam mattresses, and even on the Loom & Leaf.
Our husband who is just under 200 pounds and is a back sleeper, has found the Zenhaven superior to the other mattresses. It is more solid and more appealing 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 container, so you’re less likely give off the fresh-mattress scent in your home. It’s possible to switch between the soft Luxury Plush side and the Gentle Firm side as your preferences and requirements change, or you don’t know which degree you’ll prefer. Because the mattress is heavy (the queen is 125 weight), Saatva will send Movers to assist you by completing a single “courtesy” switch.
The things we don’t love about HTML0:Although the Zenhaven has more supple and soft feel than other all-latex mattresses sold online, it’s still less luxurious-feeling as comparable innersprings as well as traditional foam mattresses because it’s not typically “fluffy.” It was the only two (of 29) staff members who enjoyed it more than other models in our 2020 study of foam and hybrid mattresses stated that they liked its firmness, and believed that it could last for a long duration. (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 particularly heavy and has two sides the bed must be set on a sturdy, good-quality platform bed, or a frame and boxspring that are in good condition. Saatva sells the Boxspring Foundation (which is available in two heights) and a frame made of metal.
Zenhaven top reviews of the owner
We could find only 18 high-quality owner reviews for the Zenhaven-too small a sample to draw any conclusive, objective, and non-subjective information, beyond satisfactory customer service. However, we did find an extremely descriptive blog post by a longer-term owner of unknown weight (though the owner did state that the height was 6 feet 4 inches tall).
He stated that, after a year and an half, he loved its cushion and durability but, since he had not been rotating the mattress, there was a hip impression after which, when he started turning the mattress once every 6 months, he reported that the imprint disappeared. We’ll update this section once we’ve collected more high-quality reviews. Saatva Matt
Saatva Latex Hybrid
Who is it intended forThe Saatva Latex Hybrid is most suited to those who prefer sturdiness over sumptuousness. It’s ideal for stomach- and back-sleepers and those who toss and turn often. It’s designed to last 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 feels distinctly buoyant, somewhat bouncy and with some cushioning and cradling. It’s not a plush mattress however, and you sleep more the mattress the mattress than inside it.
What we like:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is built using high-quality materials and techniques for construction. The quilted surface, made from cotton and a layer of wool (a natural flame retardant), is hand-tufted to the layers below it. Tufting (commonly seen on upholstery or traditional innerspring mattresses) is a form of strong stitching that binds the layers Some argue that it has more durability than glue, and avoids the potential chemical smell that adhesives can emit. Its peaks as well as valleys made by tufting could reduce any visible body impressions, more so than the sock-covered and smooth-topped mattresses that you usually see in online hybrids.
While most hybrids put a layer of polyurethane foam on top of coils this one Saatva Latex Hybrid uses 3 inches of Talalay latex foam (which is ample, compared to the more expensive Casper Wave, which uses half as much). Latex is more breathable and durable than polyurethane or memory foams. Talalay latex, which is also used in the Zenhaven mattress, is a more breathable and soft-feeling foam in comparison to the Dunlop varieties that are typically used in cheaper latex mattresses.
Wirecutter’s supervising Editor Wendy Schley tested the Saatva Latex Hybrid for a few months in her home. She found it to be extremely supportive and durable. “It seems like it’s floating,” she said. “There’s some cushioning however it’s not extravagant in the way that a luxurious mattress would be.” Wendy found that the mattress had a bouncy and springy sensation that was reminiscent of a traditional innerspring-she never felt stuck in place-but the latex foam provided some motion isolation. Its edge support can be described as superb due to the large (13 3/4 -gauge) 8-inch coils around the perimeter.
Because of its breathable materials (the Talalay latex, cotton cover and wool layer on the top) as well as the coils in the middle, this Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all-foam mattresses or hybrids made of polyfoams. Wendy is a person who likes to have hot sleep, discovered that the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be significantly cooler than other mattresses, though we haven’t tested it during summer.
We haven’t spotted enough good-quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to discern any trends, but we’ll keep you updated as we find.
What we don’t like: Though the coils are individually wrapped, there’s still a touch of motion transfer due to, they’re coils. It’s minimal compared with movement transfer that’s present on Saatva Classic, however, it’s more noticeable than with all-foam alternatives like Zenhaven, the Loom & Leaf or Zenhaven.
A queen-size Latex Hybrid contains 789 coils (fewer than in our favorite hybrid mattresses, the Tempur-Adapt and the Leesa Hybrid, that have more than 1,000). When a mattress is less dense than coils, this can mean it won’t be able to be as comfortable in your shape. However, the supple feel of the latex layer can make the up.
As Wendy discovered, it’s true that the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an Ahhh sort of mattress. It’s as if it’s lifting you, instead of tucking you in. The mattress may not provide enough cushioning to offer enough pressure relief to side sleepers or back sleepers who need extra cushioning on specific joints.
Wendy who sleeps on her back and sides and has reported that she’s woke up with soreness in her lower back and shoulders when she slept on Saatva Latex Hybrid. If you’re looking to get something more plush, you may be interested in one of the Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf (both come in multiple firmness levels, including ones that feel softer than the Saatva Latex).
The tufting of the Latex Hybrid’s is highlighted by beautiful yarn tassels. They look lovely, but are reportedly flimsy attached, and One of the yarn tassels on the mattress Wendy tried to unraveled after several weeks. Saatva Matt
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
Saatva’s Solaire has an adjustable-air bed, consisting of foam on the top of air chambers which can be programmed to the firmness you want using the remote. We haven’t had the chance to test the Solaire yet however we’ll update this guide when we’ve had the chance to. In the meantime, we’ll be discussing what we do know.
Saatva introduced the Solaire in the year 2019 to be able to compete with Sleep Number’s high-end i8 bed. Apart from air chambers as well as an integrated remote The Solaire comes with the option of a pillow top, Talalay Latex Layer, and an infused memory foam layer. It’s also cheaper by $650 over the Sleep Number’s i8.
It has 50 different settings as opposed to Sleep Number’s 20, but in reality, we’re not sure if anyone really needs that many. At a glance, the comfort components look like they’d provide a more-curve-conforming cradle than Sleep Number’s polyurethane foam layers.
However, we can’t know whether they’re the best choice until we lay upon the bed. The Solaire’s Talalay latex materials suggest longevity, but because Sleep Number doesn’t divulge details on its foam components, it isn’t possible to declare that one mattress has more durability than another.
No matter if you want a twin or a king size, or something else You can purchase this Solaire with any dimension, as a standard model. If you prefer either a queen or a King or split king, you can upgrade to the Upper-Flex queen, king, or split King, which all have dual air chambers, so sleep partners can pick their own firmness levels.
The standard model is compatible with any bed frame (including bases that can be adjusted). But the Upper-Flex queen and king and the split king options are designed to specifically work on adjustable bases that permit both sides to be adjusted independently.
It is worth noting that the Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, including the Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Upper-Flex. With the frame’s upper-flex, couples can utilize a remote to place their shoulders and heads separately (for example, one of them can lay flat and sleep while the other sits up and reads a book).
The Upper-Flex frame that is designed to fit the split-king Solaire will also permit both to elevate their lower bodies independently. We couldn’t locate enough high-quality owner reviews to list here We’ll revise this guide once we’re able to test the bed for ourselves and gather additional reviews. Saatva Matt
In May 2019, Saatva introduced the Saatva HD which is a hybrid mattress made for people who weigh between 300 and 500 pounds. We haven’t tested this mattress , yet. However, we’re hoping to test it in the near future.
Like the Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf the Saatva HD has a pillowy, quilted top layer, however the firm coils and foam underneath appear to be able to hold heavier weights.We’re particularly interested in the HD’s pillow top, since experts have told us that for heavier people the top of pillows could be more susceptible to indentations.
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 robust than those in the company’s other models and those of its rivals like Big Fig. Big Fig.
Still, these aren’t the only factors that determine a mattress’s durability and, by itself, isn’t enough to make a good mattress. We’ll be looking into these questions further in an coming guide to mattresses designed for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly recommends” to place the mattress on a solid platform bed with a vertical center support.
In other words, Saatva representatives advised us that you must buy the HD together with the “high durabil” wooden-slat base.Again, we spotted very few positive reviews from users. When we’ve collected enough information to identify any patterns and have the ability to test the mattress, we’ll provide an update. Saatva Matt
The Saatva Youth The company’s new bed made of coils and foams for children costs more than mattresses for adults. But it’s dual-sided, with a coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam which means that the mattress will grow along with a kid.
Its first layer is designed for children aged 3 to 7 years old, and it is made up of zoned polyfoam , which has density ranging from 1.4 and 1.8 tons per square foot.
On the second side, intended for older kids (the company claims that the age range is 8-12) the foam density ranges from 1.5 pounds per cubic foot and somewhat more softer due to it being paired with the more firm side in the coil. The 13 3/4 -gauge coils vary from 330 in a twin to 350 for a twin-XL, and 462 for the 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. People who prefer natural materials might appreciate the fact that the mattress is covered in a thick, quilted organic cotton cover. It also uses thistle pulp (as instead of fiberglass or chemical sprays) as the fire retardant. We haven’t yet tried this mattress and we haven’t seen any reviews online. We’re hoping to evaluate it for a future guide to kids’ mattresses.
The Saatva Youth, the company’s relatively new bed made of coils and foams for children is priced higher than mattresses designed for adults. However, it is dual-sided, with a coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam which means that the mattress will be able to grow with a child.
Its first layer is designed for children aged 3 to 7 and is comprised of polyfoam zones with densities ranging between 1.4 to 1.8 tons per square foot.
On the other side, intended for older kids (the company claims ages 8 through 12), the foam density is 1.5 tons per cubic feet. It’s also a bit more softer due to it being paired with the more solid part of the coil. The 13 3/4-gauge coils vary from 330 in a twin up to 350 in a twin XL, and 462 in the 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 and uses thistle pulp (as opposed to fiberglass or chemical sprays) as the flame retardant. We haven’t tried the mattress, nor have we spotted any online reviews.
However, we’d like to test it for a possible guide to kids’ mattresses. Saatva Matt
