In the crowded field of online mattresses, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. It delivers its mattresses via trucks, not in the form of a box. While, like other online sellers they have progressively expanded its line, Saatva remains focused on the selection of “luxury” designs, all priced, with the exception of its Youth model, more than $1,500 (for one queen size). Saatva Mattress Instagram
Sure, there’s a whole collection of mattresses which are more luxurious than Saatva’s. They have more coils and better materials.
But we find Saatva’s mattresses to be among the most beautiful and thoughtfully designed choices available from an online company.
Over the past three years, our team has group-tested our Innerspring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom & Leaf, and the all-latex Zenhaven, and they’ve consistently earned a spot among our top picks in our reviews of the best foam mattresses as well as the best innerspring mattresses.
We’ve also slept on Saatva’s Saatva Latex Hybrid, and we’ve researched the components and construction of the rest of the mattresses in the Saatva lineup.The majority of mattresses sold online are either hybrids or foams therefore it’s no surprise that the Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the few innerspring mattresses that you can purchase online.
Pocketed coils provide Saatva Classic Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top. The extra soft top makes it more comfortable. Additionally, like the other Saatva Company mattresses, the Saatva Classic is delivered by movers, rather than in a box. Saatva also offers the option of a 180-day trial and easy returns.
It’s all foam. Loom & Leaf is constructed with more dense memory foam than most under-$1,000 mattresses, so it’s less likely to shrink over time. This is why it’s ideal for those who weigh over 200 pounds.
The quilted and thick cover is cushier and more substantial than the sock-like covers that are found on many foam mattresses, and the cover helps the memory-foam layer underneath feel less squishy.
Just like you’d expect with a memory-foam bed the Loom & Leaf limits motion better as compared to the innerspring Saatva Classic.The all-foam Zenhaven comprises primarily of latex, specifically Talalay latex. It’s made of the rubber tree’s milky sap and is intrinsically durable. Talalay is less stiff than Dunlop latex and is usually found in the less expensive latex mattresses we’ve tried.
Zenhaven is a good choice. Zenhaven can also be flipped (the Luxury Plush side feels medium-firm, while it’s Gentle Firm side feels a little more firm), which might prove helpful if you’re not sure which one you prefer, or if your preferences change over time.
This is not a conventionally cushy mattress, but it has a soft cushion, excellent edge support, and mild springiness.
Because of its durability it is recommended that the Zenhaven should work well for people who weigh over 200 pounds. Saatva Mattress Instagram
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 mattress with air chambers that can be adjusted)
- Saatva HD (a hybrid of latex and coils designed for sleepers who weigh between 300-500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil-based hybrid designed for kids aged 3 to 12)
We haven’t yet taken an in-depth analysis of what we consider to be the “natural” claims of Saatva or of the other “eco-friendly” companies.
However, we know that Saatva uses organic wool or thistle pulp as a fire retardant (as in contrast to fiberglass or chemicals) with only organic cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its covers.
Like other online mattress companies, Saatva touts such extras as zoned layers for “optimal spine support” but we’re not impressed with those features and more appreciative of Saatva’s responsive customer service and durable foams and coils. Saatva Mattress Instagram
Saatva Video Review
Who’s it for:The Saatva Classic will likely appeal to those who prefer a cushy (but not too billowy) top layer and an extremely durable, supple feel. The Luxury Firm model (Saatva’s “Medium” offer), which we tested, should suit the back, side-, and stomach-sleepers. The soft 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 brand’s most sought-after model. We found it to be cushy to the touch, and has good support and bounce. It has a squarely medium-firm feel, but it becomes softer after a break-in period that lasts a couple of months.
What we like:The Saatva Classic is one of the very few innerspring mattresses that can be purchased online without the ease that is often associated with purchasing a boxed foam mattress. It contains 416 thick, solid coils at its base for support as well as 884 individual, more-pliable coils on top to provide pressure relief. There’s a small amount of memory foam included in the mix, however the actual cushioning comes from a 3-inch polyfoam-and-fiber Euro top (an additional layer of cushion that is sewn beneath the top). The result is a soft and comfortable appeal-supportive, resilient, and with a plushness that doesn’t feel overwhelmingly billowy.
We tested the 14 1/2 -inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm in a 2021 group test that included springs (it’s offered in 11 inches), and it captured the second-highest number of top-pick polls (nine among 39 test participants) in the $1,000-$2,000 range (which includes three other mattresses: the Avocado, the Parachute, and the first-place WinkBed). Five of the nine testers were awestruck by the Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses in the test and included those which cost twice as much; two of the nine test participants chose it as their second favorite overall.
For the home test, I looked forward to sleeping in this bed each night. I’m not a fan of a bulky bed, so I was pleased how the Classic’s Euro top offered what felt to me to be just the ideal amount of cuddle. The bed does have some bounce, but not so much that my husband’s tumbling over made me wake up. To me, the buoyed up feel was worth the price in motion-isolation.
It’s priced at around $1,600 when not for sale (though it often is), the Saatva Classic is the least expensive innerspring mattress we’ve tried that feels thick and a bit luxe. It also has the advantage the fact that you have the option of choosing from three firmness levels-Plush Luxurious Firm, Soft, or Firm. This means you’ll get a perfect fit regardless of the sleeping position you choose to sleep in. Contrary to the more soft WinkBed, another pick in the innerspring mattress guide, the Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by the movers (so that “new mattress smell” has already disappeared in the factory and during transport), and this “white gloves” delivery service is completely free. The company provides a generous 180-day trial period along with an extended warranty of 15 years.
What we don’t love: If you’re not a fan of an extremely bouncy mattress or if you’re sensitive to your sleeping partner’s movements it’s likely that you won’t be a fan of the Saatva Classic. While those coils at the top have been individually wrapped the lower ones aren’t. so the bed has some motion transfer than our other innerspring options including that of the WinkBed. If you’re not keen on any bounce it’s better to go with Saatva’s Loom & Leaf.
Saatva Classic is a great mattress for couples. Saatva Classic also requires a bit of break-in time. When we first tested the mattress in the year 2018 it was medium-firm. one year and a half later, we found that it’s softened a little but in a nice way (at least to me). It’s not an “Soft” mattress but those who prefer it might be interested in this Plush Soft version, which we haven’t tested yet.
The company boasts of an “active Lumbar Zone” technology to provide “additional back support” our husband (who weighs in the vicinity of 200 pounds) still craved more support when he was in the Luxury Firm. He might have seen that feature in the version for Firm however, we haven’t tried the technology at this point, therefore we can’t know for sure. In general, we’re not awed by the zones, as people have different heights and shapes, and they may spread in a way that doesn’t conform to the zoning patterns.
The foam densities in the Saatva Classic are less than those found in Loom & Leaf that is the company’s foam mattress offering. Although representatives of the company would not divulge the details, we were told that memory foam is at minimum three pounds for each cubic foot, and that the density of the polyfoam is 1 1/2 pounds per cubic foot.
This isn’t as great as those of the Loom & Leaf, but these are the norm in an innerspring mattress and and especially one in this price category. In contrast to foam mattresses, the steel coils of this mattress provide an additional level of support, and the quilting can help reduce body impressions.
But as the following Reddit thread suggests, some sleepers have had better luck with their Saatva mattresses over many years than others; we think this likely depends on the sleeper’s size and shape. Similar to all Europillows, or mattresses with a pillow top the heavier you weigh, the more you risk experiencing sagging and impressions as time passes.
This is why you must rotate your mattress at least every six months, and then sleep all over the bed.
Saatva Classic top owner-review feedback
We found only 39 high-quality owner reviews (those that didn’t seem untrue or unclear and were published in the past, both in 2019 , and in 2020). Although the sample size was quite small, we believe it’s worth noting that almost 30% of positive reviews praised Saatva’s customer support. This is more than what we’ve seen from other mattress brands online.
We also observed that six reviewers had mentioned sagging as a problem; one of them was weighing more than 200lbs, and the rest either had a lower weight or didn’t say. The majority of them had owned the mattress for over a year at the time of their review. 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 the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Saatva Mattress Instagram
Saatva Loom & Leaf
Who it’s to be used for All-foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who like a memory foam that holds rather than engulfing them in a soft, slow hug. The more relaxed version could be ideal for sleepers on the side. This version, called Firm is designed to be used by stomach- or back-sleepers. If you weigh over 200 pounds might be able to find the Firm version to be more supportive than the Relaxed Firm.
How it feels:The Relaxed Firm is a medium-firm mattress that cradles without tying you in; the Firm (which we’ve tested only in a showroom) is much more firm.
What we likeabout it: The 12-inch thick Loom & Leaf comes with a durable, quilted, and sturdy cover similar to that you’d find on a high-quality innerspring mattress (by contrast, many memory foam mattresses have flimsier, sock-like covers). The cover is made of foam padding, which brings 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 an entire week and loved that it was soft and sturdy at the same time. Our husband who loves mattress that are firm, and weighs 70 pounds heavier than me-thought the mattress 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. With these specifications, we think this mattress will be less likely to sag or create body indentions as compared to cheaper foam mattresses, even for people who weigh over 200 pounds (though it may not be suitable in the case of those that weigh greater than 250 pounds; see reviews from owners, below). Like every foam mattress also provides excellent motion isolation.
In 2020, we compared the Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses, which cost over $1,000) and found that 20 of the 29 respondents preferred the Loom & Leaf. “It was more comfortable” was the most frequent reason; a few described it as being less “cushioned.” When we examined it against it against the Casper Wave in 2019, the results were more split (18 to the Wave; sixteen for the Loom & Leaf). Those who opted for the Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more fitting” feel or liked the quilting’s texture and those who opted for to go with the Casper Wave described the Wave as having more support and the Loom & Leaf as making them feel more “stuck.”
We also appreciate it that Loom & Leaf, like the rest of Saatva Company’s mattresses, is delivered unboxed, by the movers. This means that you don’t need to air it out, like numerous mattresses in boxes; the majority off-gassing has likely already been done within the manufacturing facility.
The thing we don’t like about HTML0: We wish Saatva had a firmness level that was between Firm and Relaxed Firm. The two levels seem at least a few gradations between them. And although it is true that the Loom & Leaf has better edge support than other popular models on the internet (such as the Leesa and Casper) Casper), it isn’t as sturdy as a Hybrid (like that of the Leesa Hybrid or Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom and Leaf’s cooling gel and pin core (punctured) design, which is advertised in the top layer I did sleep a little warm on this mattress, which was surprising because I’m usually cold. However, given that it was mid-winter in winter, I did not feel the cold at all. The tiny holes designed to cool the foam could compromise the longevity in the mattress, however likely only a little. Because it is the Loom & Leaf has a top layer of memory foam that weighs 4 pounds per cubic foot, it will be more durable than your typical foam mattress that costs less than $1,000.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We have only found 16 recently updated, top-quality reviewers of Loom & Leaf. Loom & Leaf. Similar to Saatva Classic, as with Saatva Classic, good customer service stands out from the positive reviews. In 2019 , and in 2020 many reviewers described their experience with the Loom & Leaf as “too firm” than “too smooth.” But it’s difficult to determine its feel. A lot of reviewers did not specify if they’d purchased either the Relaxed Firm or Firm.
We also observed that heavier reviewers tend to describe that the Loom & Leaf as too soft or even saggy. For instance, we found comments on Reddit about the Relaxed Firm version being sagging for those who weigh around 250 pounds; if this is you, you might consider to go with the Firm version (though it’s very firm) or it could be the The Tempur-Adapt (which also features dense foam, but it has a more distinct memory foam hug). If you weigh well over 200 pounds, you should consider Zenhaven. Zenhaven Zenhaven, which is constructed with intrinsically more-durable latex foam. Saatva Mattress Instagram
Does it merit our recommendation? Yes.
Who is it to be used for The latex-foam Zenhaven will suit those sleeping in all positions, especially those who like a supple cushion without that “sunk-in” feeling. It’s also good for people of all weights that include those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
What it feels like: This foam mattress is flippable, and it has handles that let you pick between two options: Its Luxury Plush Side is located on the gentle side of the medium-firm spectrum and it’s good for side-sleepers. Its Gentle Firm side offers a slightly firmer feel (the company says it’s about 20 percent firmer, which is what we think it is).
What we like: Zenhaven Zenhaven consists of two latex layers (one of which is zoned for lower-back support and pressure points although this might not be beneficial in the light of your weight and the position you sleep on your bed). Latex is a foam made by the milky sap of the rubber tree and it is much more durable than polyurethane or memory foam, so we believe that this mattress will prove durable for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
We love that the Zenhaven is made specifically out of Talalay latex which is more flexible than Dunlop latex that is commonly used in less expensive, stiffer latex mattresses, such as the Sleep on Latex Pure Green. The luxury Plush along with the Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven are incredibly soft and springy, but not flexible. The whole bed is also more comfortable than beds made mostly with Dunlop latex.
I have slept upon the Zenhaven for several months. Personally, I prefer a soft feeling (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 came to appreciate its supple smooth surface, with a slight springiness and the cushioned cradle.
My son, who is 10, enjoys playing on it, and the Zenhaven’s motion aversion isn’t a barrier to me feeling it. It’s enough to ensure that I’m not aware of my husband’s movements at night. Its edge support can be better than that of most foam mattresses, including on the Loom & Leaf.
My husband, who weighs just under 200 pounds and usually is a back sleeper, finds Zenhaven to be more comfortable and appealing. Zenhaven to be more substantial and appealing than the memory-foam Loom & Leaf The Relaxed Soft as well as the Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is delivered by movers and not in a box, which means there’s less chance to give off the fresh-mattress scent in your home. You can switch between the more soft Luxury Plush side and the Gentle Firm side as your preferences and preferences shift, or if just aren’t certain which firmness degree you’ll prefer. Since the mattress is very heavy (the queen is at 125 kilograms), Saatva will send Movers to assist you with a one-time “courtesy” flip.
What we don’t like:Although the Zenhaven has an suppler feel than other online all-latex mattresses however, it’s not as luxurious as comparable innersprings and traditional foam mattress due to the fact that it’s not conventionally “fluffy.” It was the only 2 (of 29) staff members who liked it better than any other model in our 2020 study of the hybrid and foam mattresses stated that they liked its firmness, and that they believed it would last 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, it needs to rest on a solid, high-quality platform bed or a boxspring and frame in good condition. Saatva offers the frame with a boxspring (which is available in two sizes) as well as a frame made of steel.
Zenhaven top review of owner feedback
We were able to find just 18 reviews from owners of high-quality for the Zenhaven. This is a small sample size to offer any firm, non-subjective conclusions that go beyond the good customer service. However, we did find one particularly insightful blog post written by a more long-term owner with no weight (though the owner did state that his height was 6’4 inches tall).
He stated that after a year a half, he still was impressed by its cushion and strength however, as he hadn’t been turning the mattress around, there was a hip impression; when he started rotating the mattress once every 6 months, he reported that the impression disappeared. This section will be updated when we’ve collected more top-quality reviews. Saatva Mattress Instagram
Saatva Latex Hybrid
Who it’s intended forThe Saatva Latex Hybrid is best suited to those who prize durability over extravagantness. It’s ideal for stomach- and back-sleepers, and for those who toss and turn often. It’s designed to last for the majority of people, even those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
How it feels:This 13-inch hybrid of latex and coil is in the middle of medium-firm. It feels distinctly buoyant, slightly bouncy, and has some cushioning and cradling. It’s not a plush mattress however, and it’s more comfortable to sleep the mattress the mattress rather than in it.
We like:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is constructed with high-quality materials and construction methods. The quilted surface, made of cotton and a layer of wool (a natural fire retardant), is hand-tufted to the layers below it. Tufting (commonly seen on upholstery or traditional-style mattress innersprings) is a kind of strong stitching that holds the layers together, which some argue has more durability than glue and eliminates the chemical smell of adhesives. The peaks and valleys made by tufting can help limit any obvious body impressions. This is more than the sock-covered and smooth-topped mattresses that are typically seen in online hybrids.
While most hybrids put a layer of polyurethane foam on top of coils Saatva’s Saatva Latex Hybrid uses 3 inches of Talalay latex foam (which is ample, compared with the pricey Casper Wave, which uses only half the amount). Latex is naturally more durable and breathable than memory foams or polyurethane. Talalay latex, also utilized in the Zenhaven model, is a much more breathable and soft-feeling foam than the Dunlop variety often used in cheaper latex mattresses.
Wirecutter supervising editor Wendy Schley tested the Saatva Latex Hybrid for several months at home. She found it to be very supportive and sturdy. “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 had a bouncy, springy feel reminiscent of an innerspring. She never felt stuck in place-but the latex foam offered some motion-simplification. The edge support is great 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) and coils in the middle, the Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all-foam mattresses and hybrids made of polyfoams. Wendy who is known to have hot sleep, discovered the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be notably cooler than other mattresses, even though we haven’t tried it during the summer months.
We haven’t found enough high-quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to identify any trends, however, we’ll update accordingly as we find.
What we don’t like: Though the coils are wrapped individually but there’s still a hint of motion transfer due to, well, coils. It’s not as noticeable as movement transfer that’s present on Saatva Classic, however, it’s more noticeable than on all-foam options like those from the Loom & Leaf or Zenhaven.
A queen-sized Latex Hybrid contains 789 coils (fewer than our top hybrid mattresses, the The Tempur-Adapt as well as the Leesa Hybrid, with around 1,000). When a mattress is less dense than coils, it can mean that the mattress will not conform as well with your physique. But the resilient feel from the soft latex makes up for that.
As Wendy has experienced that night, as Wendy experienced, the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an an ahhh kind of mattress. It feels like it’s lifting you up, instead of tucking you in. And it may not provide enough cushioning to provide adequate pressure relief to side-sleepers as well as back-sleepers who require extra cushioning for specific joints.
Wendy, that sleeps side and back, reported that she sometimes felt sore in her lower back and shoulders after sleeping on the Saatva Latex Hybrid. If you’re looking to get something more luxurious, you might be interested in Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf. Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf (both come in different degrees of firmness, including those that feel softer than the Saatva Latex).
The Latex Hybrid’s tufting is finished with decorative yarn tassels. They look lovely, but are reportedly flimsy attached to the mattress, and One of the yarn tassels that were on the mattress Wendy was testing unraveled after just a few weeks. Saatva Mattress Instagram
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
The Saatva Solaire has an adjustable-air mattress, made of foam placed on top of air chambers that can be set to the firmness you want with a remote. We haven’t yet tried the Solaire yet, but we’ll update this article when we do. In the meantime, we’ll discuss what we know about the Solaire.
Saatva launched 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 remotes The Solaire is equipped with the option of a pillow top, Talalay latex layer, as well as an infused memory foam layer. It’s also $650 cheaper that the Sleep Number I8.
It has 50 different settings, compared with Sleep Number’s 20, but realistically we’re not sure whether users really 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, of course, we can’t know whether they’re the best choice until we lay down on the mattress. Solaire’s Talalay latex components suggest long-lasting however, since Sleep Number doesn’t divulge details on its foam components, we can’t claim that one mattress is more durable than the other.
Whether you choose a twin or a king or something else you can get the Solaire in any size, as the standard model. If you prefer either a queen or a King or split king, you can upgrade to the Upper-Flex queen, the king, or the split king, all of which come with two air chambers, so sleep partners can pick their own level of firmness.
The standard model can be used on all bed frames (including adjustable bases). The Upper-Flex queen King and split king option are designed to work specifically on adjustable bases, which allow the two sides to adjust separately.
It is worth noting that the Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, such as those with 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 person can lie flat to sleep while the other one sits and reads a book).
The Upper-Flex designed specifically for the split king Solaire can also allow both people to raise their lower bodies separately. We couldn’t find enough high-quality owner reviews to include here, but we’ll update this guide when we’re in a position to test the bed for ourselves and collect more reviews. Saatva Mattress Instagram
Similar to the Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf Saatva HD Saatva HD has a pillowy quilted top layer however, the thick layer of foam underneath and coils appear to be able to hold more weight.We’re particularly interested in the HD’s pillow top, as experts informed us that, for heavier people pillows can be particularly prone 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). Furthermore is that the HD’s 12 1/2-gauge coils are thicker than the coils in the other models from the company as well as those of its rivals including The Big Fig.
Still, these aren’t the only factors that determine the durability of a mattress as well as its durability on its own isn’t enough to make a good mattress. We’ll be looking into the issues in a coming guide to mattresses designed for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly recommends” that you put this mattress on a sturdy platform bed with vertical center support.
Otherwise, representatives told us that you should purchase the HD along with its special “high durability” wooden-slat base.Again, we spotted very few positive reviews from users. Once we’ve gathered enough to glean any patterns and have the ability to test the mattress, we’ll give an update. Saatva Mattress Instagram
It’s called the Saatva Youth, the company’s relatively innovative coil-and-foam mattress for children is more expensive than mattresses for adults. However, it is dual-sided, with the coil layer sandwiched between two foam layers, so the mattress can grow along with a kid.
The first side is designed for children aged 3 to 7 years old, and it is made up of zoned polyfoam with densities ranging between 1.4 to 1.8 kg per cubic foot.
The second side is meant for children older than (the company says between ages 8 and 12) the density of foam is 1.5 pounds per cubic foot, and is slightly softer because it’s paired with the firmer part that’s part of the coil. The 13 3/4 gauge coils range from 330 to the size of a twin, up to 350 when a twin is 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 encased in a thick, quilted organic cotton cover. It also uses thistle pulp (as opposed to chemical sprays or fiberglass) as the flame retardant. We haven’t tried the mattress, nor have we spotted any reviews online. However, we’re planning to test 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 is more expensive than mattresses designed for adults. But it’s double-sided, featuring an inner coil sandwiched between two layers of foam, so the mattress can grow along with a kid.
Its first layer is designed for kids ages 3 through 7, and it consists of polyfoam that is zoned, with densities that range between 1.4 and 1.8 kg per cubic foot.
On the other side, meant for children older than (the company says between ages 8 and 12) the foam density is 1.5 pounds per cubic foot. It’s also a bit less softer since it’s coupled with the more firm part of the coil. The 13 3/4 gauge coils vary from 330 in a twin up to 350 for 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. For those who prefer natural materials, will appreciate that the mattress is wrapped in a thick, quilted organic-cotton cover and uses thistle pulp (as instead of fiberglass or chemical sprays) as the flame retardant. We haven’t yet tested this mattress and we haven’t seen any reviews on the internet.
But we hope to assess it for a future guide to mattresses for kids. Saatva Mattress Instagram
