In the sea of mattresses sold online, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. Saatva ships its mattresses via truck, instead of in boxes. While, like other sellers on the internet they have progressively developed its range, Saatva remains focused on the selection of “luxury” models, each priced at, with the exception of it’s Youth model, which is more than $1,500 (for a queen). Saatva Mattress Independent Reviews
Sure, there’s a whole range of mattresses that are more lavish than Saatva’s. They have more coils and better materials.
However, we consider Saatva’s mattresses to be one of the most stylish and thoughtfully designed options available from an online company.
Over the last two years, we’ve tested the Innerspring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom & Leaf, and the all-latex Zenhaven which have all earned a spot as one of our top choices in our guides to the best foam mattresses as well as the top innerspring mattresses.
We’ve also slept on Saatva’s Saatva Latex Hybrid as well as researched the components and construction of the other beds in Saatva’s lineup.The majority of online mattresses are foams or hybrids, so the Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the few innerspring mattresses that you can purchase on the internet.
Pocketed coils give Saatva Classic Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top. The cushioned top provides a feeling of softness. Additionally, like the other Saatva Company mattresses they are delivered by movers. Saatva Classic is delivered by moving trucks, not in boxes. Saatva offers an extensive 180-day trial and easy returns.
All-foam Loom & Leaf is made with denser memory foam than other mattresses that cost less than $1,000, which means it’s less likely to shrink over time. It’s more suitable for those who weigh over 200 pounds.
The thick, quilted cover is more cushier, and more robust than the sock-like covers of most foam mattresses and that cover makes the memory foam underneath feel less squishy.
Just like you’d expect with memory foam beds, the Loom and Leaf reduces movement more as compared to an innerspring Saatva Classic.Zenhaven is a 100% foam mattress. Zenhaven comprises primarily of latex-specifically Talalay latex. It is made from the rubber tree plant’s milky sap. It is incredibly tough. Talalay is less brittle than Dunlop latex, which is typically found in the less expensive latex mattresses we’ve tested.
The Zenhaven can also be flipped (the Luxury Plush side feels medium-firm, whereas it’s Gentle Firm side feels a bit firmer) This could be useful if you’re not certain what you prefer or if your needs change over time.
This isn’t a traditional cushiony mattress, however it offers a supple cushion, good edge support, and a subtle springiness.
Due to its inherent quality and its suppleness, the Zenhaven will be suitable for people who weigh over 200 pounds. Saatva Mattress Independent Reviews
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 mattress with air chambers that can be adjusted)
- Saatva HD (a hybrid made of latex and coil that is made for people who weigh between 300 and 500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil hybrid for kids ages 3 through 12)
We haven’t yet taken an exhaustive study of Saatva’s “natural” claims of Saatva or the other “eco-friendly” brand names.
But we do know that the company makes use of thistle or organic wool as a fire retardant (as as opposed to fiberglass or chemicals) with only organic cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its covers.
Similar to other online mattress companies, Saatva touts such extras as zoned layers to provide “optimal spine support” We’re not as than thrilled with these extras and are more impressed with Saatva’s responsive customer service and durable foams and coils. Saatva Mattress Independent Reviews
Saatva Video Review
Who it’s to be used forThe Saatva Classic is likely to suit those who like a soft (but not too big and bulky) top layer as well as the feel of a solid, durable. The Luxury Firm model (Saatva’s “Medium” offering) We tested it will be suitable for people who are back-, side-, and stomach-sleepers. The softer Plush Soft version is geared to those who sleep on their sides, and the Firm version, for stomach and back-sleepers.
The way it feels:We tested the Luxury Firm version of the Saatva Classic-the line’s most popular option-and found it to be cushy on top, and with excellent support and bounce. It begins with a squarely medium-firm feel, however, it begins to soften after the break-in period of about a month.
We like:The Saatva Classic is one of the few innerspring mattresses that you can buy online with the convenience commonly associated with purchasing the traditional boxed foam mattress. It is made up of 416 robust coils in the base for support as well as 884 individual, more flexible coils on top to ease pressure. There’s a slice of memory foam included in the mix, though the cushioning is actually an inch of polyfoam-and-fiber Euro top (an additional layer of cushion sewn underneath the top layer). The result is a soft and comfortable appeal: it’s a bit bouncy, resilient, and supportive with a softness that isn’t a hefty billowy sensation.
We test the 14 1/2-inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm during a 2021 test group for springs (it’s also available in 11 1/2 inches), and it captured the second-highest number of top-rated polls (nine from 39 participants) in the $1,000 to $2,000 category (which included three other mattresses: the Avocado, the Parachute and the top-ranked WinkBed). Five of the nine test subjects liked it more than the Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses on the same test which included mattresses which cost twice as much and two of the nine testers selected it as their second favorite overall.
For the home test, I looked at the prospect of sleeping in this bed each night. I’m not a fan overly bulky bed, so I was pleased that the Classic’s Euro top offered what felt to me like the ideal amount of cuddling. The bed does have some bounce, but not so much that my husband’s roll woke me up-to me, the feeling of buoyancy was worth the sacrifice in motion isolation.
It’s priced at around $1,600 when not for sale (though it is often), the Saatva Classic is the least expensive innerspring mattress that we’ve tested that feels thick and a bit luxe. We also like the fact that you can pick between three levels of firmness-Plush Luxurious Firm, Soft or Firm-so you can likely find the right one regardless of the sleeping position you choose to sleep in. Contrary to the more soft WinkBed, another pick in our innerspring mattress guide The Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by moving companies (so that “new mattresses smell” has already disappeared in the factory and in transit) Also, this “white gloves” delivery service is free. Saatva offers a huge 180-day trial period along with the warranty for 15 years.
The things we do not like: If you’re not fond of an extremely bouncy mattress or you’re sensitive to your sleep partner’s movements, you probably won’t like this mattress. Saatva Classic. Although the top coils are individually wrapped the lower ones aren’t. therefore, the bed offers some motion transfer than our other innerspring options including those from the WinkBed. If you don’t like any bounce You’re better off using Saatva’s Loom & Leaf.
Saatva Classic is a great mattress for couples. Saatva Classic also requires a little bit of time to get used to. When we first test the mattress, in 2018 it was medium-firm. after a year and two-thirds of a year later, we discovered that it softened bit but in a nice way (at least to me). This is not a “Soft” mattress, however; those who prefer that might want to try the Plush Soft version, which we haven’t yet tried.
Although the company touts the “active Lumbar Zone” technology for “additional back support” our husband (who weighs less than 200 pounds) wanted more support when he was in the Luxury Firm. It could be that he discovered it in the Firm version but we haven’t had the chance to test the technology in the past, and so can’t be sure. We are not awed by the zoned technology, because people come in different heights and shapes, and they may spread in ways that don’t conform to the zoning patterns.
The foam densities of the Saatva Classic are less than those of the Loom & Leaf that is the company’s foam mattress offering. Although representatives of the company would not divulge specifics, we were told that the memory foam weighs at minimum three pounds for each cubic foot, and the polyfoam density 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 in an innerspring mattress and and especially one that’s priced in this range. Contrary to foam mattresses these mattresses’ steel coils offer extra support and quilting can help reduce body impressions.
But , as in this Reddit thread suggests, certain sleepers have had better luck with their Saatva mattresses over the course of many years than others. We think that this could be due to the shape and size of the sleeper. Similar to all Euro- or pillow-top mattresses the heavier you are the greater chance of seeing sagging and imprints over time.
Therefore, you should 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 could find only 39 owner reviews that are of high-quality (those that weren’t untrue or unclear and were published recently, in 2019 , and in 2020). Although the sample size is rather small, it’s interesting that more than 30% of positive comments praised Saatva’s customer service. That’s a much bigger percentage than what we’ve seen with other mattress brands online.
Also, six reviewers mentioned sagging as the cause of their discomfort. One of them weighed more than 200 pounds, and the rest either had a lower weight or did not mention. The majority of them had owned the mattress for more than one year by the time they wrote their reviews. This indicates that turning the mattress is crucial; heavier people who like innersprings might consider the option of a mattress made from more durable latex foam, such as this one from the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Saatva Mattress Independent Reviews
Saatva Loom & Leaf
Who is it to be used for The all-foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who appreciate memory foam that holds instead of encasing them in a slow, sinky hug. The more relaxed version may be best for side-sleepers. The Firm version is made for stomach or back sleepers. People who weigh more than 200 pounds might consider the Firm to be more supportive than the Relaxed Firm.
How it feels:The Relaxed Firm is a medium-firm mattress that cradles without pulling you in. it’s the firm (which we’ve only tried in the showroom) is much more firm.
What we likeabout it: The 12-inch-thick Loom & Leaf comes with an extremely durable, quilted cover, similar to the one you’d find on a high-quality innerspring mattress (by contrast, the majority of memory foam mattresses come with flimsier, sock-like covers). This cover comes with its own foam padding, which adds additional nuance to the typically simple squishiness of memory foam mattresses. I slept on the Relaxed Firm at home for over one week and loved that it was soft and solid at the same time. The husband of mine, who loves mattress that are firm, and weighs 70 pounds heavier 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. Based on these specs we believe that this mattress will be less likely to slide or develop body indents as compared to cheaper foam mattresses, even for those who weigh more than 200 pounds (though it may not be suitable when you weigh greater than 250 pounds; read reviews from owners below). Like all foam mattresses, this one also provides excellent motion isolation.
In 2020, we compared the Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses costing more than $1000) and found that 20 of the 29 respondents preferred the Loom & Leaf. “It was softer” was the most frequent explanation; some even claimed it was better “cushioned.” In the event that we test against Casper Wave Casper Wave in 2019 and the results were split (18 for the Wave; sixteen for the Loom & Leaf). The people who chose more of the Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more conforming” feeling or the quilting’s texture while those who went with more of the Casper Wave described the Wave as having more support and that the Loom & Leaf as making the feel of being “stuck.”
We are also pleased our appreciation that Loom & Leaf, like all Saatva Company’s mattresses, comes delivered unboxed, by moving trucks. It doesn’t require you to let it air out, like the majority of mattresses that are boxed; off-gassing has likely already occurred within the manufacturing facility.
We don’t love HTML0: We wish Saatva could provide a level of firmness between Relaxed Firm and Firm-the two levels seem at least a few gradations between them. While Loom & Leaf Loom & Leaf has better edge support than the other popular online models (such such as Leesa or the Casper), it isn’t as sturdy as a combination (like that of the Leesa Hybrid or Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom & Leave’s cooling gel and pin core (punctured) design that is featured in the top layer I slept a bit warm on this mattress, which was surprising considering that I’m always cold. However, given that it was in the middle of the winter season, I don’t care too much. The tiny holes made to cool the foam could compromise the longevity in the mattress, though probably only slightly. Given that the Loom & Leaf has a top layer memory-foam density of four tons per cubic foot it will be more durable than the typical $1,000-or-less online foam mattress.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We found only 16 recently updated, top-quality user reviews for the Loom & Leaf. Like Saatva Classic, as with Saatva Classic, the quality of customer service has stood out in the glowing reviews. In 2019 and 2020 reviews, more people have described this Loom & Leaf as “too firm” rather than “too smooth.” But, it’s hard to determine its feel. A lot of reviewers did not specify if they’d purchased either the Relaxed Firm or the Firm.
Also, we noticed that more seasoned reviewers often describe their experience with the Loom & Leaf as too soft, or even too saggy. For instance, we saw comments on Reddit regarding the Relaxed Firm version sagging for people who weigh more than 250 pounds; if this is the case, then try using the Firm version (though it’s extremely firm) 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 well over 200 pounds, look into an alternative like the Zenhaven, which is made of more durable latex foam. Saatva Mattress Independent Reviews
Do we recommend it? Yes.
Who is it for: Its latex foam Zenhaven should suit people that sleep at any angle, especially those who prefer a soft cushion without that “sunk-in” sensation. It’s also suitable for those of all weights that include those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
How it feels: This mattress is flippable and has handles that let you select between two choices: Its Luxury Plush aspect is located on the gentle side of the medium-firm spectrum and it’s good for side-sleepers. The Gentle Firm side offers a slightly firmer sensation (the firm claims it’s around 20 percent more firmer, and that sounds right to us).
We like this: The Zenhaven consists of two layers of latex (one that is zoned for pressure points and lower-back support, though this may or may not be helpful in the light of your weight and position on the mattress). Latex is a foam made by the milky sap of the rubber tree, and is better than polyurethane or memory foam. Therefore, we think this mattress is more durable for those who weigh over 200 pounds.
We love that the Zenhaven is specifically made from Talalay latex which is more flexible than Dunlop latex typically found in cheaper, stiffer latex mattresses, like the Sleep On Latex Pure Green. Both the luxury Plush along with the Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven feel supple and not elastic. The whole bed is also more breathable than mattresses made of Dunlop latex.
I slept on the Zenhaven for a few months. I personally prefer a more-pillowy feeling (like that of the Saatva Classic) however, the Luxury Plush part of the Zenhaven had grown on me. After putting it to the test for a few weeks, I started to appreciate its soft slightly springy surface as well as its cushioned cradle.
My son of 10 is also fond of playing on it, and the Zenhaven’s motion isolation isn’t a barrier to me feeling that. However, it’s sufficient that I’m not aware of my husband’s movements in the evening. Edge support on the Zenhaven is slightly higher than the majority of foam mattresses, and even on the Loom & Leaf.
My husband, who is just under 200 pounds, and who usually sleeps on his back, has found that the Zenhaven to be more substantive and attractive than the memory foam Loom & Leaf Relaxed firm or the Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is shipped by movers and not in a box, which means it’s less likely to emit that fresh-mattress smell to your home. You can choose between the soft Luxury Plush side as well as the Gentle Firm side as your preferences and requirements shift, or if don’t know which degree you’ll prefer. Since the mattress is very heavy (the queen weighs 125 kilograms), Saatva will send movers to help you with one-time “courtesy” switch.
We don’t like:Although the Zenhaven has a more-supple feel than many other online all-latex mattresses but it’s less luxurious as comparable innersprings and traditional foam mattress due to the fact that it’s not conventionally “fluffy.” The mere two (of 29) staffers who enjoyed it more than other models in our test of 2020 mattress hybrids and foam said they enjoyed the fact that it was supportive and that they believed it would 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 two-sided the bed must be set on a solid, high-quality platform bed or a boxspring and frame in good shape. Saatva offers the Boxspring Foundation (which is available in two sizes) and a frame made of metal.
Zenhaven top reviews of the owner
We were able to find only 18 high-quality owner reviews for the Zenhaven-too small a sample size to provide any conclusive, objective, and non-subjective information in addition to good customer service. However, we did find one particularly insightful blog post by a longer-term owner with no weight (though he did claim that his height was 6’4 inches high).
He stated that, after a year and a half, he still appreciated its cushion and resilience, but because he hadn’t been turning the mattress around, the impression on his hip was evident and when he began rotating the mattress every 6 months, he reported that the impression disappeared. This section will be updated when we’ve collected more top-quality reviews. Saatva Mattress Independent Reviews
Saatva Latex Hybrid
Who is it for:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is best suited to those who prefer durability over extravagantness. It’s great for back and stomach sleepers as well as people who move around frequently. It’s durable enough for the majority of people, even those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
The way it feelsThis 13-inch latex-and-coil hybrid is on the firm side of medium-firm. It’s very buoyant, slightly bouncy, and has some cushioning and hugging. It’s certainly not luxurious, though, and you’ll sleep better in the mattress rather than within it.
We like:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is built using high-quality materials and construction techniques. The quilted surface, made of cotton and a layer of wool (a natural fire retardant), is hand-tufted to the layers underneath. Tufting (commonly found on furniture or traditional-style mattress innersprings) is a type of stitching with a heavy-duty structure that holds the layers together, which some argue can last longer than glue and eliminates the chemical smell of adhesives. These peaks and valleys made by the tufting may also reduce any visible body impressions, and more so than the sock-covered and smooth-topped mattresses you typically see in hybrids sold online.
Though most hybrids place a layer of polyurethane foam over coils, Saatva’s Saatva Latex Hybrid uses 3 inches of Talalay latex foam (which is plenty, when compared with the pricey Casper Wave, which uses half as much). Latex is inherently more durable and breathable than memory foams or polyurethane. Talalay latex, also used in Zenhaven, is a more breathable, supple and comfortable foam than the Dunlop variety often used in cheaper latex mattresses.
Wirecutter supervising Editor Wendy Schley tested the Saatva Latex Hybrid for a few months at home. She found it very supportive and sturdy. “It is like it’s floating,” she said. “There’s some cushioning to it however it’s not extravagant in the way that a luxurious mattress would be.” Wendy found that the mattress has a buoyant, springy feel reminiscent of a traditional innerspring-she never felt stuck in place-but the latex foam provided some motion isolation. Edge support was excellent, due to thick (13 3/4-gauge) 8-inch coils that run along the edges.
Due to its breathable material (the Talalay latex, cotton cover and wool layer on the top) and coils in the middle, it is believed that the Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all foam mattresses or hybrids that are made of polyfoams. Wendy who is known to be hot at night, found the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be notably cooler than other mattresses, although we haven’t tried it during summer.
We haven’t found enough high-quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to discern any trends, but we’ll update accordingly when we can.
What we don’t like: Though the coils are individually wrapped, there’s still a touch of motion transfer due to, it’s just that, coils. It’s not as noticeable as motion transfer on the Saatva Classic, but it’s much more prominent than with all-foam alternatives like those from the Loom & Leaf or Zenhaven.
A queen-sized Latex Hybrid contains 789 coils (fewer than in our favorite hybrid mattresses, such as the the Tempur-Adapt or the Leesa Hybrid, that have more than 1,000). When a mattress is less dense than coils, this can mean the mattress won’t conform as well to your body. But the resilient feel that the layer of latex can make more up for it.
As Wendy has experienced, the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an Ahhh kind of mattress. It’s as if it’s lifting you up, rather than nestling you in. And it may not provide enough cushioning to offer sufficient pressure relief for side sleepers as well as back-sleepers who require additional cushioning on certain joints.
Wendy, who sleeps on her back and side, reported that she sometimes awakened with soreness in her shoulders and lower back after sleeping on the Saatva Latex Hybrid. If you’re looking for something more comfortable, you may want to consider Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf. Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf (both are available in a variety of degrees of firmness, including those that feel softer than the Saatva Latex).
The tufting on the Latex Hybrid is topped with decorative yarn tassels. They look pretty but appear to be flimsy to the mattress, and some of them on the mattress Wendy tried to unraveled after some time. Saatva Mattress Independent Reviews
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
Saatva’s Solaire has an adjustable air bed 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 yet tried the Solaire yet, but we’ll update this guide once we’ve had the chance to. We’ll discuss the information we have.
Saatva has introduced Solaire in the year 2019 to compete with the Sleep Number’s top-of-the-line i8 mattress. Apart from air chambers as well as a remote and a remote, 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 priced at $650 less over the Sleep Number’s i8.
It has 50 different settings in comparison to Sleep Number’s 20, but realistically we’re not sure whether 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.
But, as always we won’t be able to tell for sure until we lie in the bed. Solaire’s Talalay latex materials suggest longevity however, since Sleep Number doesn’t provide any details about the foam materials, we can’t declare that one mattress has more durability than another.
If you decide to go with a twin or a king or something else in between you can get this Solaire at any length as an ordinary model. Or, if you choose either a queen or a king or split king, you can upgrade to the Upper-Flex queen or King, or split King, which all have dual air chambers, which means that sleepers can choose their own firmness levels.
The standard model works on all bed frames (including adjustable bases). The Upper-Flex queen king and the split king option are designed to be specifically compatible with adjustable bases that permit both sides to be adjusted independently.
The Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, which include the Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Upper-Flex. With the Upper-Flex frame, couples can utilize a remote to position their heads and shoulders individually (for instance, one person can lie flat to sleep while the other one sits and reads the book).
The Upper-Flex designed to fit the split-king Solaire also allows both individuals to elevate their lower bodies independently. 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 gather more reviews. Saatva Mattress Independent Reviews
In May of 2019, Saatva introduced the Saatva HD which is a hybrid mattress specifically designed for those who weigh between 300 and 500 pounds. We haven’t tried this mattress yet, but we’re planning to test it in the near future.
Similar to Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf the Saatva HD has a pillowy, quilted top layer, but the dense underlying foam and coil layers appear to be able to hold heavier weights.We’re especially curious about the HD’s pillow top, as experts informed 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). What’s more is that the HD’s 12 1/2 gauge coils are more robust than those in the other models of the company and those in its competitors including The Big Fig.
But these aren’t necessarily the only factors that determine a mattress’s durability and, by itself, does not make for a desirable mattress. We’ll explore the issues in a upcoming guide to mattresses for those who weigh over 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly strongly suggests” that you place this mattress on a solid platform bed that has vertical center support.
If not, they advised us that you should buy the HD together with its unique “high durability” timber-slat-based foundation.Again, we spotted very few helpful user reviews. Once we’ve gathered enough to glean any trends and to test the mattress, we’ll provide an update. Saatva Mattress Independent Reviews
It’s called the Saatva Youth is the company’s innovative coil-and-foam mattress for children, costs more than some mattresses for adults. However, it is double-sided, featuring the coil layer sandwiched between two foam layers and a mattress that can be able to grow with the kid.
Its first layer is intended for children aged 3 to 7, and it consists of polyfoam that is zoned, with density ranging between 1.4 and 1.8 kg per cubic foot.
On the second side, intended for older kids (the company claims ages 8 through 12), the foam density ranges from 1.5 grams per cubic foot and somewhat less spongy due to its pairing with the firmer side that’s part of the coil. The 13 3/4 -gauge coils vary from 330 in a twin to 350 for a twin-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 might appreciate that the mattress is wrapped in a quilted, thick organic cotton cover. It also uses thistle pulp (as as opposed to fiberglass or chemical sprays) as the flame retardant. We haven’t yet tested this mattress and we haven’t seen any reviews online. But we hope to assess it for a future guide to kids’ mattresses.
It’s called the Saatva Youth is the company’s new coil-and-foam bed for kids, costs more than some mattresses designed for adults. It is however double-sided, featuring an inner coil sandwiched between two foam layers which means that the mattress will grow along with a kid.
One side of the mattress is designed for children aged 3 to 7 and is comprised of zoned polyfoam with density ranging between 1.4 and 1.8 kg per cubic foot.
The second side is intended for older kids (the company says between ages 8 and 12) the density of foam can be as high as 1.5 tons per cubic feet, and is slightly softer because it’s paired with the more firm section of coil. The 13 3/4-gauge coils range from 330 in the size of a twin, up to 350 when a twin is XL. They also go up to 462 in the full.
