In the crowded field of mattresses sold online, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. Saatva ships its mattresses via trucks, not in a box. While, like other sellers on the internet they have progressively expanded its line, Saatva remains focused on a range of “luxury” models, each priced at less than the Youth model, which is more than $1,500 (for one queen size). Saatva Mattress Pad
There’s no doubt that there’s a collection of mattresses that are more luxurious than Saatva’s, featuring more coils and better materials.
However, we consider Saatva’s mattresses among the most elegant-looking and thoughtfully designed options offered by an online retailer.
Over the past two years, we’ve tested the insidespring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom and Leaf, as well as the all-latex Zenhaven, and they’ve consistently placed among our top picks in our guides to the best foam mattresses and the top innerspring mattresses.
We’ve also experienced sleeping on the Saatva Latex Hybrid as well as researched the design and construction of the other beds in Saatva’s lineup.Most online mattresses are hybrids or foams, which is why the Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the very few innerspring mattresses you can conveniently buy online.
Pocketed coils give Saatva Classic Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top. A plush top adds softness. Also, as with all of the Saatva Company’s mattresses, the Saatva Classic is delivered by the movers rather than boxes. Saatva also provides the option of a 180-day trial and easy returns.
It’s all foam. Loom & Leaf is constructed with more dense memory foam than other under-$1,000 mattresses, so it’s less likely to shift over time. This is why it’s more suitable for those who weigh over 200 pounds.
The quilted, thick cover is more cushier and robust than the sock-like covers that are found on many foam mattresses, and that cover makes the memory foam underneath feel less as squishy.
Like you would expect from a memory-foam bed the Loom & Leaf limits motion more than the innerspring Saatva Classic.All-foam Zenhaven is made up mainly of latex-specifically Talalay latex. It’s made from the plant’s milky sap and is intrinsically tough. Talalay is less stiff than Dunlop latex and is usually used in less expensive latex mattresses we’ve tested.
Zenhaven is a good choice. Zenhaven can be flippable (the Luxury Plush side feels medium-firm, whereas Gentle Firm feels a bit firmer). Gentle Firm side feels a slightly firmer) It could prove beneficial if you’re unsure which side you prefer or your needs change with time.
This is not a conventionally cushy mattress, but it has a soft cushion, good edge support, and slight springiness.
Because of its robustness and its suppleness, the Zenhaven is a good choice for people who weigh greater than 200 pounds. Saatva Mattress Pad
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 air chambers that can be adjusted)
- Saatva HD (a latex-coil hybrid made for people who weigh 300 to 500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil hybrid designed for children ages 3-12)
We haven’t done an exhaustive study of what we consider to be the “natural” claims made by Saatva or of other “eco-friendly” brands.
However, we know that Saatva uses thistle or organic wool as a fire retardant (as in contrast to fiberglass or chemicals) as well as only natural cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its covers.
As do other mattress brands online, Saatva touts such extras as zones for “optimal spine support”; we’re less than thrilled with these extras and more appreciative of Saatva’s quick customer service as well as its long-lasting coils and foams. Saatva Mattress Pad
Saatva Video Review
Who it’s 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. This Luxury Firm variant (Saatva’s “Medium” product) We tested it will be suitable for people who are back-, sidestomach and side-sleepers. The softer Plush Soft version is geared to side-sleepers, as does the Firm version for stomach- and back-sleepers.
The way it feels:We tested the Luxury Firm version of the Saatva Classic-the model with the most popularity-and found it to be soft to the touch, and has good support and bounce. It starts out with the feel of a firm, square shape, but it softens slightly after a period of break-in time of a few months.
What we likeabout it:The Saatva Classic is among the very few innerspring mattresses you can buy online with the convenience typically associated with buying an inflatable foam mattress. It has 416 strong, solid coils at its base for support, and 884 individually wrapped, more-pliable coils that are stacked over top to provide pressure relief. There’s a small amount of memory foam in the mix, though the cushioning is actually the 3-inch polyfoam and fiber Euro top (an additional layer of cushion sewn under the top layer). The resultant feel is broad in appeal: it’s a bit bouncy, resilient, and supportive with a plushness that doesn’t feel bulky.
We tried the 14 1/2 -inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm in a 2021 group test that included innersprings (it’s additionally available in 11 1/2″) It was the top choice, with the second-highest percentage of top-rated scores (nine from 39 participants) in the $1,000-$2,000 range (which includes the Avocado as well as the Parachute, and the first-place WinkBed). Five of those nine testers loved their Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses tested in the test that day which included mattresses that cost twice as much as the Saatva Classic. Two of the nine testers selected the Saatva Classic as their second choice overall.
In the case of the test at home I was looking forward to sleeping in this bed each night. I’m not a fan of a billowy bed, so I was pleased its Euro top offered what felt to me to be just the perfect amount of cuddling. The bed has some bounce but not so much that my husband’s rolling over awakened me. To me, the feeling of buoyancy was worth the price in motion-isolation.
Around $1,600 if it’s not for sale (though it’s often) The Saatva Classic is the least expensive innerspring mattress we’ve tested that feels substantial and luxurious. It also has the advantage the fact that you can pick between three levels of firmness-Plush soft, luxury firm, or Firm-so you can likely find the right one regardless of which position you sleep in. In contrast to the more sluggish WinkBed Another option from our innerspring mattress guide Saatva Classic is Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by movers (so that “new mattresses smell” has already dissipated in the factory and during transport), and this “white gloves” delivery is absolutely free. The company provides a generous 180-day trial period, as well as an extended warranty of 15 years.
What we don’t like: If you don’t like the bounce of a mattress, or are insensitive to your partner’s movements while in bed it’s likely that you won’t be a fan of the Saatva Classic. Although the top coils are individually wrapped the lower ones aren’t. which means that the mattress has some motion transfer than our other innerspring options like those from the WinkBed. If you’re not keen on any kind of bounce, you’re better off with Saatva’s Loom & Leaf.
It is worth noting that the Saatva Classic also requires a little bit of time to get used to. When we first tried the mattress in 2018 it was medium-firm. one year and a half later, we noticed that it softened bit, but in a pleasant way (at at least to me). This is not an “Soft” mattress, however; those who prefer that might prefer it out. Plush Soft version, which we haven’t yet tried.
The company boasts of the “active Lumbar Zone” technology for “additional back support,” my spouse (who weighs in the vicinity of 200 pounds) was still in search of more support from the Luxury Firm. He may have seen this in the firm version however, we haven’t tried the technology in the past, and so aren’t able to know for sure. In general, we’re not awed by the zones, as people have different sizes and heights, and they may spread in a way that doesn’t match the zoning patterns.
The foam density in the Saatva Classic are less than those found in Loom & Leaf which is the company’s foam-mattress offering. Although company representatives wouldn’t divulge details, we were informed that memory foam is at least three pounds for each cubic foot, and the polyfoam density equals 1 1/2 pounds of cubic feet.
They’re not as impressive as those of the Loom & Leaf, but the specs are typical in an innerspring mattress and and especially ones in this price range. Unlike with foam mattresses, this mattress’s steel coils provide an additional level of support, and the quilting may help to prevent body impressions.
But as this Reddit post suggests, certain sleepers have had more success with their Saatva mattresses over many years than others. We think that this could be due to the shape and size of the sleeper. As with all thick Euromattress – also known as a pillow-top mattress the heavier you weigh, the more you risk experiencing sagging and impressions over time.
This is why you must rotate your mattress at least once every six months. You should also sleep on top of your bed.
Saatva Classic top owner-review feedback
We found just 39 reviews from owners that were of high quality (those that didn’t seem untrue or unclear and were published recently, between 2019 and 2020). Although the sample size was rather small, it’s worth noting that almost 30% of the positive reviews praised Saatva’s service to customers. This is more than what we’ve seen with other mattress brands online.
We also noticed that six of the reviewers mentioned that sagging was an issue; one of them was weighing more than 200lbs and the other weighed less than that or didn’t mention. All but one had owned the mattress for over one year by the time of their review. This suggests that rotating the mattress is crucial for heavier individuals who prefer innersprings might consider an innerspring mattress that is more durable latex foam, like the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Saatva Mattress Pad
Saatva Loom & Leaf
Who is it for: The all-foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who like a memory foam that holds rather than engulfing them in a tense, sluggish hug. The softer Relaxed Firm version could be ideal for sleepers on the side. It is designed for stomach or back sleepers. Anyone who weighs more than 200 pounds may be able to find the Firm version to be more supportive over the Relaxed version.
How it feels:The Relaxed Firm is a medium-firm mattress that cradles without pulling you in; The Firm (which we’ve only tried in a showroom) is much firmer.
We like: The 12-inch thick Loom & Leaf comes with a sturdy, quilted cover similar to that you’d get on a good innerspring mattress (by contrast, many memory foam mattresses are made of sock-like, thin covers). This cover comes with its own foam padding, which adds more depth to the normally one-note squishiness of cheaper memory-foam mattresses. I slept on the Relaxed Firm at home for more than an entire week and enjoyed the fact that it was soft and solid but also firm. My husband, who loves mattress that are firm, and weighs less than 200 pounds, which is 70 pounds more 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 is less likely to sag or form body indentions as opposed to other foam mattresses even for people who weigh over 200 pounds (though maybe not in the case of those that weigh over 250 pounds; see owner-review feedback, below). Like any foam mattress, it also has a high-quality motion isolation.
We conducted a test of the Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses, which cost more than $1,000) and found that twenty-one out of 29 users preferred the Loom & Leaf. “It was more comfortable” was a popular explanation; some even said it was more “cushioned.” We test it against Casper Wave Casper Wave in 2019 the results were more split (18 for the Wave; 16 for it; 16 for the Loom & Leaf). People who went with that Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more fitting” feel or appreciated the feel of its quilting and those who opted for more of the Casper Wave described the Wave as being more supportive and that the 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 the movers. This means that you don’t need to let it air out, like you do with numerous mattresses in boxes; the majority off-gassing will have occurred at the manufacturing facility.
What we don’t like: We wish Saatva offered a firmness level between Relaxed Firm and Firm. two levels are at a minimum, a few degrees from each other. While the Loom & Leaf has better edge support than other popular online models (such such as Leesa and the Casper), it isn’t as sturdy as a Hybrid (like those like the Leesa Hybrid or the Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom & Leaf’s cooling gel and pin core (punctured) design, which is advertised on the top layer, I was able to sleep quite warm on this mattress, which was a surprise since I’m usually cold. However, given that it was the middle of winter, I didn’t feel the cold at all. The tiny holes that are designed to cool the foam could compromise the durability in the mattress, though probably only slightly. Since the Loom & Leaf has a top layer memory-foam density of four pounds per cubic foot, it should remain more durable than your typical foam mattress that costs less than $1,000.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We only found 16 recent, high-quality reviewers of the Loom & Leaf. Like similar to the Saatva Classic, excellent customer service is a standout from the positive reviews. In 2019 and 2020 many reviewers have described the Loom & Leaf as “too firm” rather than “too smooth.” But, it’s hard to draw conclusions about its texture. Many reviewers didn’t mention whether they’d ordered the Relaxed Firm or the Firm.
Also, we noticed that heavier reviewers tend to describe their experience with the Loom & Leaf as too soft or even too loose or even. We found complaints on Reddit concerning this Relaxed Firm version being sagging for people who weigh more than 250 pounds; if this is your case, consider using the Firm version (though it’s very firm) as well as it could be the The Tempur-Adapt (which is also made of dense foam, but with a distinct memory-foam hug). If you weigh more than 200 pounds, look into an alternative like the Zenhaven that is constructed with intrinsically more-durable latex foam. Saatva Mattress Pad
Does it merit our recommendation? Yes.
Who it’s intended for This latex foam Zenhaven is a good choice for people sleeping in all positions, but especially those who want a firm cushion without that “sunk-in” feeling. It’s also great for those of all weights that include those who weigh over 200 pounds.
How it feels: This foam mattress can be flipped, and it has handles to help you easily pick between two options The Luxury Plush Side is located on the soft side of the medium-firm spectrum, and it’s good for side-sleepers. This side’s Gentle Firm side offers a slightly firmer feel (the company says it’s about 20% firmer, and that seems right to us).
What we like: Zenhaven Zenhaven is made up of two latex layers (one that is zoned to provide lower-back support and pressure points however this could or may not be helpful according to your body size and where you sleep on your bed). Latex is a foam made by the milky sap of the rubber tree and it is much better than polyurethane or memory foam, so we believe that this mattress will prove durable for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
We like it that Zenhaven is made specifically out of Talalay latex that feels more flexible than Dunlop latex typically found in less expensive, stiffer latex mattresses like the Sleep on Latex Pure Green. The Luxury Plush as well as the Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven feel springy without being flexible. The entire bed is also more breathable than beds that are mostly made from Dunlop latex.
I lay upon the Zenhaven for several months. Personally, I prefer a more pillowy feel (like that of the Saatva Classic) however, the Luxury Plush aspect of the Zenhaven was becoming more appealing to me. After using it for a few weeks, I came to appreciate its supple smooth surface, with a slight springiness and the cushioned cradle.
My 10-year-old son also likes jumping on it, and the Zenhaven’s motion isolation doesn’t prevent me from being a bit uncomfortable about it. But it’s good enough that I’m not aware of my husband’s movements during the night. Edge support on the Zenhaven is superior to that of many foam mattresses, such as the Loom & Leaf.
Our husband who is less than 200 pounds and rests with his back on, likes Zenhaven to be more comfortable and appealing. Zenhaven superior to the other mattresses. It is more solid and appealing than the memory-foam Loom & Leaf The Relaxed Firm or it’s Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is shipped by movers, not shipped in a box, so there’s less chance to give off that fresh-mattress smell to your home. It’s possible to switch between the soft Luxury Plush side and the Gentle Firm side as your preferences and requirements shift, or if are unsure of the firmness level you’ll like. Because the mattress is heavy (the queen is 125 pounds), Saatva will send moving experts to help you out with one-time “courtesy” flip.
We don’t like:Although the Zenhaven has a more-supple feel than many other all-latex mattresses sold online, it’s still less luxurious-feeling as comparable innersprings or traditional foam mattresses due to the fact that it’s not typically “fluffy.” The nil two (of 29) staffers who enjoyed it more than other models in our 2020 study of foam and hybrid mattresses stated that they were pleased the fact that it was supportive and believed that it could last for a long period of 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 extremely heavy and has two sides, it needs to rest on a sturdy, good-quality platform bed, or a frame and boxspring that are in good condition. Saatva offers the frame with a boxspring (which comes in two heights) and a frame made of metal.
Zenhaven top reviews of the owner
We were able to locate only 18 quality reviews of owners for the Zenhaven. This is a small sample size to offer any definitive, non-subjective conclusion in addition to good customer service. However, we did discover an extremely descriptive blog post written by a more long-term owner who was not sure of his weight (though the owner did state that his height was 6’4 inches in height).
He said that after a year and an half, he loved its cushion and durability but, since he had not been rotating the mattress, he noticed a hip impression; when he started rotating the mattress every six months, he said the impression disappeared. We’ll update this page once we’ve collected more high-quality reviews. Saatva Mattress Pad
Saatva Latex Hybrid
What it’s designed for:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is best suited to those who value the durability of their mattress over lavishness. It’s great for stomach- and back-sleepers and people who move around a lot. It should hold up well for most people, including those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
The way it feelsThis 13-inch hybrid of latex and coil is at the soft end of medium-firm. It’s distinctly buoyant and slightly bouncy, and has some cushioning and hugging. It’s certainly not luxurious, though, and you sleep more on the mattress than inside it.
What we love:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is constructed using top-quality materials and techniques for construction. The quilted top, constructed from cotton as well as wool (a natural flame retardant), is hand-tufted to the layers beneath it. Tufting (commonly seen on upholstery or traditional innerspring mattresses) is a type of heavy-duty stitching which holds the layers together, which some argue can last longer than glue and avoids the potential chemical smell that adhesives can emit. The peaks and valleys created by the tufting may also reduce any visible body impressions, more so than the sock-covered, smooth-topped mattresses that are typically seen on hybrids that are sold online.
While most hybrids put an layer of polyurethane foam over coils, the Saatva Latex Hybrid uses 3 inches of Talalay latex foam (which is ample, compared to the more expensive Casper Wave, which uses only half the amount). Latex is naturally more breathable and durable than polyurethane or memory foams. Talalay latex, utilized in the Zenhaven mattress, is a more breathable and supple-feeling foam in comparison to the Dunlop variety often used in cheaper mattresses made of latex.
Wirecutter’s supervising editor Wendy Schley tested the Saatva Latex Hybrid for a few months in her home. She found it very supportive and sturdy. “It feels 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 was never stuck. However, the latex foam did provide some motion isolation. The edge support is great thanks to the thick (13 3/4-gauge) 8-inch coils that run along the edges.
Thanks to its breathable materials (the Talalay latex, cotton cover and wool layer on the top) and coils that make up it is believed that the Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all-foam mattresses or hybrids made from polyfoams. Wendy, who tends to sleep hot, found that the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be significantly cooler than other mattresses, although we haven’t tried it during summer.
We haven’t found enough high-quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to identify any trends, however, we’ll update accordingly when we can.
What we don’t like: Though the coils are wrapped individually however, there’s a bit of motion transfer due to, it’s just that, coils. It’s minimal compared with Motion transfer found on Saatva Classic, however, it’s more noticeable than on all-foam options such as Zenhaven, the Loom & Leaf or Zenhaven.
A queen-size Latex Hybrid contains 789 coils (fewer than in our favorite hybrid mattresses, such as the Tempur-Adapt as well as the Leesa Hybrid, which have around 1,000). When a mattress is less dense than coils, this can mean the mattress won’t adjust in your shape. However, the supple feel from the soft latex more than makes more up for it.
As Wendy experienced, the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an ahhh sort of mattress. It’s like it’s lifting you, instead of snuggling you down. It may not offer enough cushioning to provide adequate pressure relief to side-sleepers as well as back-sleepers who need extra cushioning on specific joints.
Wendy that sleeps side and back and has reported that she’s felt sore in her shoulders and lower back when she slept on Saatva Latex Hybrid. If you’re looking for something a bit more luxurious, you might prefer Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf. Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf (both are available in a variety of degree of firmness, with some which feel more soft than the Saatva Latex).
The tufting of the Latex Hybrid’s is topped with decorative yarn tassels. They look pretty but are reportedly flimsy attached as some of them that were on the mattress Wendy tested unraveled after a few weeks. Saatva Mattress Pad
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
The Saatva Solaire has an adjustable air bed made of foam on the top of air chambers which can be programmed to your preferred firmness level with the remote. We haven’t tried the Solaire yet however, we’ll update this guide once we’ve had the chance to. While we wait, let us be discussing the information we have.
Saatva launched the Solaire in 2019 to compete with the Sleep Number’s premium i8 mattress. Along with air chambers and remotes, the Solaire is equipped with a pillow top, a Talalay Latex Layer, and the gel-infused memory foam layer. It’s also $650 cheaper over the Sleep Number’s i8.
It has 50 different settings as opposed to Sleep Number’s 20, but realistically we’re not sure whether anyone really needs more than that. 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 won’t be able to tell whether they’re the best choice until we lay in the bed. The Solaire’s Talalay latex components suggest long-lasting however, since Sleep Number does not provide information about its foam materials, we can’t declare that one mattress has more durability than another.
If you decide to go with a twin, a king, or something else You can purchase this Solaire in any size, 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, all of which come with two air chambers, meaning that the sleepers can select their own firmness levels.
The standard model is compatible with all bed frames (including adjustable bases). But the Upper-Flex queen and king and the split-king models are made to specifically work on adjustable bases that allow each side to adjust independently.
The Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, such as the Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Upper-Flex. The frame’s Upper-Flex feature allows couples can utilize the remote to adjust their shoulders and head separately (for example, one of them can sleep on a flat bed while the other sits up and reads or reads a book).
The Upper-Flex designed for the split king Solaire also allows both individuals to raise their bodies separately. We didn’t have enough top-quality owner reviews to include here however we’ll be updating this guide when we’re able test the bed ourselves and gather more reviews. Saatva Mattress Pad
Similar to Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf Saatva HD Saatva HD has a pillowy quilted top layer but the dense layer of foam underneath and coils appear to be able to hold more weight.We’re especially curious about the pillow top of the HD, because experts told us that, for heavier people the top of pillows could 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 the HD’s 12 1/2-gauge coils are thicker than those in the company’s other models and those of its rivals including Big Fig. Big Fig.
But these aren’t necessarily the only factors that determine the mattress’s longevity as well as its durability on its own does not make for a desirable mattress. We’ll be looking into the issues in a forthcoming guide to mattresses that are suitable for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly recommends” that you place this mattress on a sturdy platform bed with vertical center support.
In other words, Saatva representatives advised us to buy the HD along with its special “high durabil” wood-slat foundation.Again, we spotted very few positive reviews from users. Once we’ve gathered enough to identify any trends and try the mattress out, we’ll provide an update. Saatva Mattress Pad
The Saatva Youth, the company’s relatively innovative coil-and-foam mattress for children, costs more than some mattresses for grown-ups. However, it is double-sided, featuring a coil layer sandwiched between two foam layers, so the mattress can grow along with a kid.
Its first layer is intended for children aged 3 to 7 and is comprised of zoned polyfoam , which has densities ranging between 1.4 and 1.8 tons per square foot.
On the other side, designed for kids older than that (the company says ages 8 through 12), the foam density ranges from 1.5 tons per cubic feet. It’s also a bit more softer due to it being paired with the firmer side that’s 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 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 will appreciate that the mattress is encased in a quilted, thick organic cotton cover. It also uses thistle pulp (as opposed to chemical sprays or fiberglass) to act as a flame-resistant. We haven’t yet tried this mattress as we haven’t found any online reviews. We’re hoping to evaluate it for a possible guide to kids’ mattresses.
The Saatva Youth The company’s innovative coil-and-foam mattress for kids is priced higher than mattresses for grown-ups. But it’s dual-sided, with the coil layer sandwiched between two foam layers which means that the mattress will expand with the child.
One side of the mattress is designed for children aged 3 to 7, and it is made up of polyfoam zones with densities that range between 1.4 and 1.8 pounds per cubic foot.
On the second side, meant for children older than (the company says between ages 8 and 12), the foam density ranges from 1.5 pounds per cubic foot, and is slightly softer because it’s paired with the firmer section of coil. The 13 3/4 gauge coils vary from 330 in 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. People who prefer natural materials might appreciate that the mattress is covered in a thick, quilted organic-cotton cover and uses thistle pulp (as as opposed to fiberglass or chemical sprays) as the fire retardant. We haven’t yet tested this mattress and we haven’t seen any online reviews.
But we hope to assess it for a possible guide on mattresses for children. Saatva Mattress Pad
