In the crowded field of mattresses sold online, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. It delivers its mattresses via truckinstead of the form of a box. While, like other online sellers they have progressively expanded its line, Saatva remains focused on the selection of “luxury” models that are all priced at less than the Youth model, more than $1500 (for the queen size). Saatva Mattress Ratings
Sure, there’s a collection of mattresses that are more luxurious than Saatva’s, featuring higher coil counts and finer materials.
However, we consider Saatva’s mattresses to be among the most elegant-looking and thoughtfully designed options that are available from an online business.
Over the past two years, we’ve group-tested our Innerspring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom and Leaf, as well as the all-latex Zenhaven, and they’ve consistently placed as one of our top choices in our reviews of the top foam mattresses and the best 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.Most online mattresses are hybrids or foams, which is why it’s no surprise that the Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the very few innerspring mattresses that you can purchase online.
Pocketed coils provide the Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top. A plush top adds softness. Also, as with the rest of Saatva’s mattresses they are delivered by movers. Saatva Classic is delivered by movers, rather than in the form of a box. Saatva offers the option of a 180-day trial and simple returns.
It’s 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 sag in time. For that reason, it’s ideal for those who weigh greater than 200 pounds.
The quilted, thick cover is more cushier and sturdy than the sock-like cover on most foam mattresses, and the cover helps the memory foam underneath feel less soft and squishy.
As you’d expect with an innerspring mattress the Loom and Leaf reduces movement more than the innerspring Saatva Classic.The all-foam Zenhaven consists mostly of latex. Particularly Talalay latex, which is made from the plant’s milky sap, and is intrinsically durable. Talalay is less brittle than Dunlop latex that is commonly used in less expensive latex mattresses that we’ve tried.
Zenhaven is a good choice. Zenhaven can also be flipped (the Luxury Plush side feels medium-firm, whereas it’s Gentle Firm side feels a slightly firmer), which might prove helpful if you’re not sure which one you prefer, or if your needs change over time.
It’s not a typical cushy mattress, but it has a soft cushion, good edge support, as well as a mild springiness.
Due to its inherent quality, the Zenhaven will be suitable for people who weigh more than 200 pounds. Saatva Mattress Ratings
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 hybrid of latex and coils designed for sleepers who weigh between 300 and 500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil hybrid for children ages 3-12)
We haven’t 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) and only organic cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its covers.
Similar to other mattress brands online, Saatva touts such extras as zones for “optimal spinal support”; we’re less impressed with those features and are more impressed with Saatva’s responsive customer service as well as its long-lasting coils and foams. Saatva Mattress Ratings
Saatva Video Review
Who it’s to be used forThe Saatva Classic will likely appeal to people who prefer a cushy (but not overwhelmingly bulky) top layer and the feel of a solid, durable. Its Luxury Firm model (Saatva’s “Medium” offering), which we tested, should suit people who are back-, sideand stomach sleepers. The soft Plush Soft version caters primarily to those who sleep on their sides, as does the Firm version to back- and stomach-sleepers.
How it feels:We tested the Luxury Firm version of the Saatva Classic – the line’s most popular option-and discovered it to be soft to the touch, and has good rebound and support. It begins with the feel of a firm, square shape, however, it begins to soften after a period of break-in time of a few months.
We like:The Saatva Classic is one of the few innerspring mattresses that can be purchased online without the ease that is typically associated with buying a boxed foam mattress. It contains 416 thick, solid coils at its base, for support, and 884 individually wrapped, more flexible coils that are stacked over top to provide pressure relief. There’s a slice of memory foam in the mix, but the actual cushioning comes from the 3-inch polyfoam and fiber Euro top (an extra layer of cushion sewn underneath the top layer). The result is a soft and comfortable appeal, being supple, supportive, and with a plushness that isn’t a hefty billowy sensation.
We test the 14 1/2 -inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm in a 2021 group test that included innersprings (it’s also available in 11 1/2 inches) and it racked up the second-highest number of top-rated polls (nine among 39 test participants) in the $1,000-$2,000 range (which included the Avocado and the Parachute, and the first-place WinkBed). Five of the nine test subjects loved their Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses tested in the same test and included those that cost twice as expensive and two of the nine testers chose it as their second favorite overall.
For the home test, I looked at the prospect of sleeping in this bed every night. I’m not a fan overly billowy bed, so I was pleased its Euro top felt to me like the perfect amount of cuddling. The bed is bouncy but not so much that my husband’s roll made me wake up. To me, the buoyed-up feel was worth the price in motion isolation.
At around $1,600 when it’s not on sale (though it often is), the Saatva Classic is the least expensive innerspring mattress we’ve tested that feels substantial and luxurious. We also love the fact that you can pick between three levels of firmness-Plush Soft, Luxury Firm or Firm. This means you’ll find a good fit regardless of the position you sleep in. Contrary to the more soft WinkBed, another pick in the innerspring mattress guide The Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by movers (so the “new mattress smell” is already gone from the factory and while in transit) Also, this “white glove” delivery service is free. The company offers a generous 180-day trial period, as well as an extended warranty of 15 years.
We don’t like: If you don’t like a bouncy mattress, or you’re sensitive to your sleep partner’s movements while in bed, you probably won’t like Saatva Classic. Saatva Classic. Although the top coils are individually wrapped, the bottom coils aren’t, which means that the mattress has some motion transfer than the other innerspring picks, such as that of the WinkBed. If you don’t like any bounce, you’re better off with Saatva’s Loom & Leaf.
The Saatva Classic also requires a bit of break-in time. When we first tried the mattress in 2018 it was medium-firm. one year and a two-thirds of a year later, we found that it’s softened a small amount but in a nice way (at at least to me). It’s not an “Soft” mattress, however; those who like that may prefer it out. Plush Soft version, which we haven’t tried yet.
The company boasts of the “active Lumbar Zone” technology for “additional back support,” our husband (who weighs just under 200 pounds) was still in search of more support when he was in the Luxury Firm. It could be that he discovered that feature in the version for Firm, but we haven’t had the chance to test it yet, so we don’t know for sure. We are not awed by the zoned technology, because people come in different heights and shapes, and they could spread out in a way that doesn’t match the zoning patterns.
The foam density in Saatva Classic are lower than those in 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 specifics, we were told that memory foam weighs at least 3 pounds in cubic feet and that the density of the polyfoam of 1 1/2 pounds for each cubic foot.
They’re not as impressive as the densities in the Loom & Leaf, but the specs are typical in an innerspring mattress and and especially ones in this price range. Contrary to foam mattresses the steel coils of this mattress provide extra support and quilting could help prevent body impressions.
But as this Reddit thread suggests, certain sleepers have had better luck with Saatva mattresses. Saatva mattresses over the course of many years than others; we believe this is based on the size and shape of the person sleeping on it. Like all Euromattress – also known as a pillow-top mattress the heavier you are the higher the chance of seeing sagging and imprints as time passes.
This is why you must turn your mattress regularly at least every six months. You should also sleep over your bed.
Saatva Classic top owner-review feedback
We found just 39 reviews from owners that were of high quality (those which didn’t appear untrue or unclear and were published recently, in the years 2019 and 2020). Although the sample size was quite small, we believe it’s notable that nearly 30% of positive reviews praised Saatva’s customer support. This is more than what we’ve seen from other mattress brands online.
We also noticed that six of the reviewers mentioned that sagging was a problem; one of them weighed more than 200 pounds, and the rest either had a lower weight or didn’t say. All but one had owned the mattress for over a year at the time of their review. This suggests that rotating the mattress is essential for heavier individuals who prefer innersprings may want to consider an innerspring mattress that is more durable latex foam, like that of the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Saatva Mattress Ratings
Saatva Loom & Leaf
Who is it to be used for This all foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who appreciate memory foam that holds, as opposed to engulfing them in a soft, slow hug. The more relaxed version may be best for side-sleepers. It is made for back- or stomach-sleepers. People who weigh more than 200 pounds might consider the Firm to be more comfortable than the Relaxed Firm.
What it feels like:The Relaxed Firm is a medium-firm mattress that cradles without tying you in; The Firm (which we’ve tried only in the showroom) is much firmer.
We like: The 12-inch thick Loom & Leaf comes with a durable, quilted, and sturdy cover, similar to the one you’d find on an innerspring mattress (by contrast, many memory foam mattresses are made of sock-like, thin 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 lay on the Relaxed Firm at home for more than a week, and I loved that it was soft and substantial in the same way. Our husband who likes firm mattresses and weighs just less than 200 pounds, which is 70 pounds more than me-thought it was too soft.
Whereas most online mattresses have a memory-foam density in the 3-pounds-per-cubic-foot range, the Loom & Leaf’s top layer has a 4-pounds-per-cubic-foot density with a gel-infused layer meant to assist with cooling (though cooling features like gel and perforations tend to have minimal impact). The mattress also has a 5-pounds-per-cubic-foot memory-foam layer underneath that top layer. Given those specs, we think this mattress is less likely to slump or create body indentions than cheaper foam mattresses, even for those who weigh more than 200 pounds (though it may not be suitable in the case of those that weigh more than 250 pounds; read reviews from owners, below). Like all foam mattresses, this one offers quality motion isolation.
In 2020, we compared our Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses, which cost more than $1,000) and found that 20 of the 29 respondents preferred to the Loom & Leaf. “It felt softer” was a popular reason; a few claimed it was more “cushioned.” When we tested it in comparison to the Casper Wave in 2019 and the results were less unified (18 for the Wave; sixteen for it; 16 for the Loom & Leaf). The people who chose more of the Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more flexible” 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 them feel more “stuck.”
We also like that the Loom & Leaf, like all of the Saatva Company’s mattresses, is delivered without boxes, by movers. That means you don’t have to blow it out like you do with the majority of mattresses that are boxed; off-gassing is likely to have already been done at the factory.
What we don’t like: We wish Saatva offered a firmness level between Firm and Relaxed Firm. The two levels seem to be at least a couple of degrees between them. While it is true that the Loom & Leaf has better edge support than some of the more popular online models (such as the Leesa and Casper) Casper), it’s not as durable as the combination (like those like the Leesa Hybrid or Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom & Leaf’s cool gel as well as the pin-core (punctured) design touted on the top layer, I did sleep a little warmer on this mattress which was surprising because I’m usually cold. However, given that it was the middle of the winter season, I don’t care the cold at all. The tiny holes made for cooling could affect the longevity that the foam has, though likely only a little. Because the Loom & Leaf has a top-layer memory-foam density of 4 tons per cubic foot it should still prove more durable than your standard $1000 or less online foam mattress.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We only found 16 high-quality, recent reviewers of the Loom & Leaf. Just as with the Saatva Classic, the quality of customer service has stood out from the positive reviews. In the years 2019 and 2020 many reviewers said that their experience with the Loom & Leaf as “too firm” rather than “too soft.” However it’s difficult to determine its feel. Many reviewers didn’t mention whether they had ordered either the Relaxed Firm or Firm.
We also noticed that more seasoned reviewers often review the Loom & Leaf as too soft, or even too loose or even. For instance, we saw complaints on Reddit about this Relaxed Firm version not being firm enough for people who weigh between 250 pounds; if this is your case, consider using the Firm version (though it’s very firm) or it could be the The Tempur-Adapt (which also features dense foam, but with a distinct memory foam hug). If you weigh more than 200 pounds, you should consider an alternative like the Zenhaven Zenhaven, which is made of more durable latex foam. Saatva Mattress Ratings
Do we recommend it? Yes.
Who’s it to be used for This latex foam Zenhaven will suit those who sleep in any position, particularly those who prefer a soft cushion, but without that “sunk-in” sensation. It’s also good for those of all weights and sizes, including those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
How it feels: This mattress can be turned over and has handles that let you choose between two options that are: The Luxury Plush Side is at the gentle side of the medium-firm spectrum and is suitable for sleepers who are side-sleepers. The Gentle Firm side offers a slightly firmer feel (the firm claims it’s around 20 percent more firmer, and that is what we think it is).
We like this: The Zenhaven is made up of two layers of latex (one of which is zoned to provide lower-back support and pressure points, though this may or might not be beneficial in the light of your weight and the position you sleep on your mattress). Latex is a type of foam that comes by the milky sap of the rubber tree plant, and it is much more durable than polyurethane or memory foam, and so we think this mattress will prove robust for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
We love this mattress because 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. The Luxury Plush as well as the Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven feel supple and not elasticky. The bed as a whole is also more breathable than beds that are mostly made from Dunlop latex.
I slept upon the Zenhaven for several months. Personally, I prefer a soft feel (like that of the Saatva Classic) however, the Luxury Plush part of the Zenhaven had grown on me. After breaking it in for a couple of weeks, I started to appreciate its soft smooth surface, with a slight springiness and the cushioned cradle.
My son of 10 is also fond of jumping on it, and the Zenhaven’s motion-isolation feature isn’t a barrier to me feeling it. But it’s good enough that I don’t feel the need to notice my husband’s movements in the evening. Its edge support can be superior to that of many foam mattresses, and even on the Loom & Leaf.
My husband, who weighs just under 200 pounds and usually rests with his back on, has found that the Zenhaven to be more solid and attractive than the memory foam Loom & Leaf the Relaxed firm as well as the Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is shipped by movers, not shipped in a box, so there’s less chance to release the fresh-mattress scent in your home. It’s possible to switch between the softer Luxury Plush side as well as the Gentle Firm side as your preferences and needs change, or you don’t know which degree you’ll prefer. Due to the weight of the mattress (the queen weighs at 125 kilograms), Saatva will send Movers to assist you with a one-time “courtesy” flip.
We don’t like:Although the Zenhaven has an suppler feel than other all-latex mattresses sold online but it’s less luxurious than similarly priced innersprings and traditional foam mattress due to the fact that it’s not typically “fluffy.” The mere 2 (of 29) staffers who were more satisfied than other models in our 2020 test of mattress hybrids and foam stated that they liked its firmness, and they thought it would last for a long period of time. (In the latex category, most staffers in our blind test preferred the PranaSleep Lotus Asana 6 in Plush, which has a latex-polyurethane-foam construction and costs over $1,000 more than the Zenhaven.)
Since the Zenhaven is particularly heavy and has two sides and two-sided, it must be placed on a sturdy, good-quality platform bed or a frame and boxspring in good condition. Saatva sells a Boxspring Foundation (which comes in two heights) as well as a frame made of steel.
Zenhaven top review of owner feedback
We could find only 18 quality reviews of owners for the Zenhaven-too small a sample to draw any firm, non-subjective conclusions that go beyond the excellent customer service. However, we did discover a particularly descriptive review by a longer-term owner who was not sure of his weight (though he did say he was 6 feet 4 inches tall).
He claimed that after a year and a half, he still loved its cushion and durability however, as he hadn’t been rotating the mattress, the impression on his hip was evident; when he started rotating the mattress every six months, he claimed the imprint disappeared. This section will be updated when we’ve collected more top-quality reviews. Saatva Mattress Ratings
Saatva Latex Hybrid
Who it’s to be used forThe Saatva Latex Hybrid is ideal to those who prize the durability of their mattress over lavishness. It’s perfect for stomach- and back-sleepers and people who move around often. It’s durable enough for most people, including those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
The way it feelsThis 13-inch hybrid of latex and coil is on the firm side of medium-firm. It feels distinctly buoyant, somewhat bouncy and with some cushioning and cradling. It’s definitely not plush, though, and you’ll sleep better on the mattress than within it.
What we love:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is constructed with high-quality materials and construction methods. The quilted top, made out of cotton, and wool (a natural flame retardant) is hand-tufted to the layers underneath. Tufting (commonly used on upholstery or traditional-style innerspring mattresses) is a kind of stitching with a heavy-duty structure that holds the layers together Some argue that it is more durable than glue, and avoids the potential chemical smell that adhesives can emit. These peaks and valleys made by tufting can aid in minimizing any visible body impressions. This is more than the sock-covered and smooth-topped mattresses that are typically seen in online hybrids.
Though most hybrids place a layer of polyurethane foam over coils, the Saatva Latex Hybrid uses 3 inches of Talalay latex foam (which is plenty, in comparison with the pricey Casper Wave, which uses half as much). Latex is more durable and breathable than polyurethane or memory foams. Talalay latex, utilized in the Zenhaven model, is a much more breathable and soft-feeling foam in comparison to the Dunlop varieties that are typically used in cheaper mattresses made of latex.
Wirecutter’s supervising Editor Wendy Schley tested the Saatva Latex Hybrid for several months in her home. She found it extremely supportive and durable. “It feels like it’s floating,” she said. “There’s some cushioning, but it’s not luxurious in a plush way.” Wendy found that the mattress had a bouncy springy feeling that reminded her of an innerspring. She also did not feel stuck, but the latex foam provided some motion-simplification. The edge support is excellent thanks to the thick (13 3/4 gauge) 8-inch coils along the edges.
Due to its breathable material (the Talalay latex, cotton cover and wool layer at the top) and coils that make up this Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all foam mattresses or hybrids that are made of polyfoams. Wendy is a person who likes to be hot at night, found that the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be significantly cooler than other mattresses, though we haven’t tried it during summer.
We haven’t found enough high-quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to glean any trends, but we’ll update accordingly when we can.
What we don’t like about HTML0: Though the coils are wrapped in a single piece, there’s still a touch of motion transfer because, well, coils. It’s minimal compared with movement transfer that’s present on Saatva Classic, however, it’s more noticeable than with all-foam alternatives like the Loom & Leaf or Zenhaven.
A queen-size Latex Hybrid contains 789 coils (fewer than our top hybrid mattresses, such as the Tempur-Adapt as well as the Leesa Hybrid, which have around 1,000). If a mattress is made up of fewer coils, it sometimes means it won’t be able to conform as well to your body. But the firmness that the layer of latex more than makes the up.
As Wendy has experienced, the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an an ahhh kind of mattress. It’s like it’s lifting you up, instead of tucking you in. It may not offer enough cushioning to give adequate pressure relief to side-sleepers or back sleepers who require extra cushioning for particular joints.
Wendy sleeping on both her back and side and has reported that she’s 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 be interested in the Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf (both are available in a variety of firmness levels, including ones which feel more soft than the Saatva Latex).
The tufting on the Latex Hybrid is topped with attractive yarn tassels. They look pretty but are apparently flimsily attached as One of the yarn tassels on the mattress Wendy was testing unraveled after just several weeks. Saatva Mattress Ratings
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
The Saatva Solaire can be described as an adjustable-air mattress, made of foam placed on top of air chambers which can be programmed to the firmness you want by using an electronic remote. We haven’t yet tried the Solaire yet, but we’ll update this guide when we’ve had the chance to. We’ll talk about the information we have.
Saatva has introduced Solaire in the year 2019 to be able to compete with Sleep Number’s top-of-the-line i8 bed. Apart from air chambers and remotes and a remote, the Solaire is equipped with the option of a pillow top, Talalay the layer of latex, as well as an infused memory foam layer. It’s also priced at $650 less that the Sleep Number I8.
It has 50 different settings as opposed to Sleep Number’s 20 settings, but in reality, we’re not sure if users really need 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 can’t know whether they’re the best choice until we lay on the mattress. Solaire’s Talalay latex materials suggest longevity however, since Sleep Number doesn’t provide any details about the foam components, we can’t declare that one mattress is more durable than the other.
If you decide to go with either a twin or a king or something else in between, you can order Solaire Solaire at any length, as an ordinary model. Or, if you choose the queen or 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 level of firmness.
The standard model is compatible with any bed frame (including adjustable bases). But the Upper-Flex queen and king and the split king options are designed to be specifically compatible with adjustable bases, which allow the two sides to adjust separately.
The Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, including the Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Upper-Flex. The frame’s Upper-Flex feature allows couples can use the remote to adjust their shoulders and heads separately (for example, one of them can lay flat and sleep while the other sits up and reads or 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 list here however we’ll be updating this guide once we’re able to try the bed out ourselves and gather more reviews. Saatva Mattress Ratings
In May, Saatva introduced the Saatva HD which is a hybrid mattress designed for people who weigh between 300-500 pounds. We haven’t yet tested the mattress , yet. However, we plan to test it in the near future.
Similar to the Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf, the Saatva HD has a pillowy quilted top layer but the dense coils and foam underneath are said to support more weight.We’re particularly curious about the top of the pillow in the HD because experts told us that for those who are heavier pillows can 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). Furthermore is that the HD’s 12 1/2 gauge coils are thicker than those found in the other models of the company and those of its rivals like Big Fig. Big Fig.
Still, these aren’t the only criteria that affect a mattress’s durability, and durability alone does not make for a desirable mattress. We plan on investigating the issues in a coming guide to mattresses designed for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly recommends” to place the mattress on a solid platform bed with a vertical center support.
Otherwise, representatives told us that you should purchase the HD together with its unique “high endurance” wooden-slat base.Also, we found a few user reviews that were positive. Once we’ve gathered enough to discern any trends and are able try the mattress out, we’ll give an update. Saatva Mattress Ratings
The Saatva Youth, the company’s relatively new bed made of coils and foams for children, costs more than some mattresses for adults. But it’s double-sided, featuring a coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam, so the mattress can grow along with a kid.
Its first layer is intended for children aged 3 to 7 years old, and it is made up of zoned polyfoam , which has density ranging between 1.4 to 1.8 pounds per cubic foot.
On the second side, meant for children older than (the company states that it’s for ages 8 through 12) the foam density is 1.5 pounds per cubic foot, and is slightly softer because it’s paired with the firmer part of the coil unit. The 13 3/4 -gauge coils range from 330 to a twin up to 350 in a twin XL, and 462 in the full.
The Saatva Youth is 10 inches thick and bunk-bed-friendly-as long as the bed’s guardrail is at least 5 inches higher than the mattress, for safety reasons. For those who prefer natural materials, will appreciate the fact that the mattress is covered 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 online. But we hope to assess it for a possible guide to kids’ mattresses.
The Saatva Youth, the company’s relatively innovative coil-and-foam mattress for kids, costs more than some mattresses designed for adults. However, it is double-sided, featuring the coil layer sandwiched between two foam layers which means that the mattress will expand with the child.
The first side is intended for children aged 3 to 7, and it is made up of polyfoam that is zoned, with density ranging from 1.4 to 1.8 kg per cubic foot.
The second side is intended for older kids (the company claims between ages 8 and 12), the foam density ranges from 1.5 grams per cubic foot and somewhat softer because it’s paired with the more solid section of coil. The 13 3/4 -gauge coils range from 330 to a twin to 350 for a twin-XL. They also go up to 462 in the full.
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.

We haven’t tried the mattress and we haven’t seen any reviews online.
But we hope to assess it for a future guide on mattresses for children. Saatva Mattress Ratings
