In the sea of online mattresses, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. Saatva delivers its mattresses by truck, instead of in boxes. And even though, like other online sellers they have progressively expanded its line, Saatva remains focused on the selection of “luxury” models, each priced at in the range of its Youth model, more than $1500 (for one queen size). Saatva Mattress Reviews Complaints
There’s no doubt that there’s a range of mattresses that are more luxurious than Saatva’s, featuring more coils and better materials.
But we find Saatva’s mattresses to be one of the most stylish and thoughtfully designed options available from an online company.
Over the last two years, we’ve gathered to test the Innerspring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom and Leaf, as well as the all-latex Zenhaven, and they’ve consistently placed as one of our top choices in our reviews of the best foam mattresses and the top innerspring mattresses.
We’ve also slept on the Saatva Latex Hybrid as well as researched the construction and components of the rest of the beds from Saatva’s line-up.Most online mattresses are either hybrids or foams so this Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the few innerspring mattresses you can conveniently buy on the internet.
Pocketed coils provide this Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top. The cushioned top provides a feeling of softness. Also, as with all of the Saatva Company’s mattresses they are delivered by movers. Saatva Classic is delivered by the movers rather than boxes. Saatva offers an extensive 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. It’s ideal for those who weigh over 200 pounds.
The quilted, thick cover is more cushier and robust than the sock-like covers of most foam mattresses and the cover helps the memory foam underneath feel less soft and squishy.
Just like you’d expect with a memory-foam bed the Loom and Leaf is able to limit motion more as compared to the innerspring Saatva Classic.The all-foam Zenhaven comprises primarily of latex, specifically Talalay latex. It’s made from the plant’s milky sap, and is intrinsically durable. Talalay is less stiff than Dunlop latex that is commonly used in less expensive latex mattresses we’ve tried.
Zenhaven is a good choice. Zenhaven can be flippable (the Luxury Plush side feels medium-firm, whereas it’s Gentle Firm side feels a bit firmer) This could be useful if you’re not certain which one you prefer, or if your preferences change over time.
This is not a conventionally soft mattress, but it offers a supple cushion, good edge support, as well as a mild springiness.
Because of its durability, the Zenhaven is a good choice for people who weigh more than 200 pounds. Saatva Mattress Reviews Complaints
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 made for people who weigh between 300 and 500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil hybrid designed for kids ages 3 through 12)
We haven’t yet done an in-depth analysis of the “natural” claims made by Saatva or of others “eco-friendly” companies.
However, we know that Saatva uses thistle or organic wool as a flame retardant (as in contrast to fiberglass or chemicals) with only organic cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its covers.
As do other online mattress manufacturers, Saatva touts such extras as zoned layers for “optimal spinal support” We’re not as satisfied with these features, and are more impressed with Saatva’s customer service that is responsive and durable foams and coils. Saatva Mattress Reviews Complaints
Saatva Video Review
Who it’s for:The Saatva Classic will likely appeal to those who like a soft (but not too bulky) top layer, and a sturdy, resilient feel. The Luxury Firm version (Saatva’s “Medium” offering) that we tried, should suit side-, back-, and stomach-sleepers. The softer Plush Soft version is targeted to side-sleepers, and the Firm versioncaters for stomach- and back-sleepers.
How it feels:We tested the Luxury Firm version of the Saatva Classic – the model with the most popularity-and discovered it to be soft on top, with good rebound and support. It has an incredibly firm feel however, it begins to soften after a break-in period of about a month.
We like:The Saatva Classic is one of the very few innerspring mattresses can be purchased online without the convenience typically associated with buying a boxed foam mattress. It is made up of 416 robust coils in the base, for support, and 884 individually wrapped, more flexible coils stacked on top, to ease pressure. There’s a small amount of memory foam in the mix, but the real cushioning comes from an inch of polyfoam-and-fiber Euro top (an additional layer of cushion sewn underneath the top). The resultant feel is broad in appeal-supportive, resilient, and with a plushness that doesn’t feel bulky.
We tried the 14 1/2 -inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm in a group test of mattresses with innersprings (it’s also available in 11 1/2 inches) It was the top choice, with the second highest number of top-pick polls (nine out of 39 testers) in the $1,000 to $2,000 category (which comprised the Avocado, the Parachute, and the first-place WinkBed). Five of those nine testers loved it more than the Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses in the same test, including those that cost twice as expensive and two of the nine testers selected it as their second favorite overall.
As for the home test I was looking at it as if I could sleep in this bed every night. I’m not a fan overly heavy bed, and I was pleased its Euro top offered what felt to me to be just the right amount of cuddling. The bed does have some bounce, but not so much that my husband’s tumbling over woke me up-to me, the buoyed up feel was worth the tradeoff in motion isolation.
At around $1,600 when it’s not for sale (though it often is), 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 have the option of choosing from three firmness levels-Plush Soft, Luxury Firm or Firm. This means you’ll find the right one regardless of which position you sleep in. In contrast to the more sluggish WinkBed Another option from the innerspring mattress guide Saatva Classic is Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by movers (so that “new mattresses smell” has already disappeared in the factory and in transit) Also, this “white gloves” delivery is absolutely free. The company provides a generous 180-day trial period, along with a 15-year warranty.
The things we do not likeabout: If you’re not fond of an extremely bouncy mattress or if you’re insensitive to your partner’s movements it’s likely that you won’t be a fan of the Saatva Classic. Although all the coils on top are wrapped individually, the bottom coils aren’t, so the bed has more motion transfer than the other innerspring choices including that of the WinkBed. If you’re not keen on any bounce it’s better to go 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 test the mattress, in 2018, it felt medium-firm; one year and a two-thirds of a year later, we noticed that it’s softened a bit, but in a pleasant way (at at least to me). It’s not the case with a “Soft” mattress but those who prefer that might prefer this Plush Soft version, which we haven’t tested yet.
While the company claims to have the “active Lumbar Zone” technology for “additional back support” my spouse (who weighs less than 200 pounds) still craved more support when he was in the Luxury Firm. He might have seen this in the firm version but we haven’t had the chance to test the technology yet, so we can’t be sure. In general, we are not overly impressed with zones, as people are of different sizes and heights, and they may spread in a way that doesn’t conform to the zoning patterns.
The foam densities of the Saatva Classic are less than those in the Loom & Leaf that is the company’s foam mattress offering. While representatives from the company wouldn’t reveal the details, we were told that the memory foam is at least 3 pounds per cubic foot and the polyfoam density of 1 1/2 pounds for each cubic foot.
This isn’t as great than the density of the Loom & Leaf, but the specifications are standard in an innerspring mattress and particularly one in this price category. In contrast to foam mattresses, these mattresses’ steel coils offer additional support, and the quilting could help prevent body impressions.
However, as the following Reddit thread indicates, some sleepers have had better results using Saatva mattresses. Saatva mattresses over the course of many years than others. We think that this could be due to the sleeper’s size and shape. Similar to all Europillows, or mattresses with a pillow top the heavier you weigh, the more you risk getting imprints and sagging over time.
So you’ll want to turn your mattress regularly at least once every six months and sleep all over the bed.
Saatva Classic top owner-review feedback
We were able to find only 39 owner reviews that are of high-quality (those which didn’t appear untrue or unclear, and that were posted recently, in 2019 and 2020). Although the sample size was rather small, it’s worth noting that almost 30% of positive reviews praised Saatva’s service to customers. This is a higher percentage 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 weighed more than 200 pounds while the others had a lower weight or didn’t mention. The majority of them had been using the mattress for more than one year by the time they wrote their reviews. This indicates that turning the mattress is crucial and heavier individuals who enjoy innersprings might want to look at an innerspring mattress that is more durable latex foam, like the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Saatva Mattress Reviews Complaints
Saatva Loom & Leaf
Who it’s for: All-foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who like a memory foam that holds instead of encasing them in a slow, sinky hug. The soft Relaxed Firm model could be ideal for sleepers on the side. It is intended for stomach or back sleepers. Anyone who weighs more than 200 pounds may also find the Firm to be more comfortable than the Relaxed Firm.
How it feels:The Relaxed Firm is an average-firm mattress that supports you without pulling you in; The Firm (which we’ve only tried in a showroom) is firmer.
We like: The 12-inch thick Loom & Leaf comes with an extremely durable, quilted cover, similar to the one you’d get on a good innerspring mattress (by contrast, many memory foam mattresses are made of sock-like, thin covers). That cover contains its own foam padding, which adds more depth to the normally simple squishiness of memory foam mattresses. I lay on the Relaxed Firm at home for over an entire week and loved that it was soft and solid but also firm. The husband of mine, who loves firm mattresses and weighs just under 200 pounds-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. Given those specs we believe that this mattress is less likely to slump or create body indentions as compared to cheaper foam mattresses, even for people who weigh over 200 pounds (though maybe not for those who weigh more than 250 pounds; read reviews from owners below). Like any foam mattress, it has a high-quality motion isolation.
The year 2020 was the first time we tested in 2020 the Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses that cost more than $1000), and 20 out of 29 people prefer the Loom & Leaf. “It felt softer” was the most frequent explanation; some even described it as being less “cushioned.” When we examined it against it against the Casper Wave in 2019 the results were split (18 in favor of the Wave 16 for it; 16 for the Loom & Leaf). The people who chose that Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more conforming” feeling or the feel of its quilting while those who went with the Casper Wave described the Wave as having more support and it was more supportive. Loom & Leaf as making them feel more “stuck.”
We also appreciate our appreciation that Loom & Leaf, like the rest of Saatva Company’s mattresses, is delivered in a box, and by moving trucks. It doesn’t require you to let it air out, like many boxed mattresses; most off-gassing has likely already been done at the manufacturing facility.
We don’t love HTML0: We wish Saatva could provide a level of firmness between Relaxed Firm and Firm-the two levels appear to be to be at least a couple of degrees from each other. Although Loom & Leaf Loom & Leaf has better edge support than the other popular online models (such as the Leesa or the Casper), it’s not as robust as a hybrid (like the Leesa Hybrid or the Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom and Leaf’s cooler gel, as well as its pin core (punctured) design that is featured in the top layer, I did sleep a little warmer on this mattress which was a surprise since I’m always cold. Given that it was mid-winter of the winter season, I don’t feel the cold at all. The tiny holes designed for cooling could affect the durability in the mattress, but probably only slightly. Because it is the Loom & Leaf has a top layer memory-foam density of four pounds per cubic foot, it’s likely to remain more durable than the typical foam mattress that costs less than $1,000.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We only found 16 recently updated, top-quality reviewers of this model of the Loom & Leaf. Just as with Saatva Classic, as with Saatva Classic, good customer service stands out from the positive reviews. In the years 2019 and 2020, more reviewers have described the Loom & Leaf as “too firm” than “too too soft.” However it’s difficult to draw conclusions about its texture. A lot of reviewers did not specify if they’d ordered one of the Relaxed Firm or Firm.
We also observed that more seasoned reviewers often refer to their experience with the Loom & Leaf as too soft or even too saggy. For instance, we saw comments on Reddit about the Relaxed Firm version sagging for people who weigh more than 250 pounds. If this is the case, then look into the Firm version (though, again, it’s very firm) as well as the Tempur-Adapt (which is also made of dense foam but a more-distinct memory foam hug). If you weigh more than 200 pounds, look into Zenhaven. Zenhaven Zenhaven, which is made of more durable latex foam. Saatva Mattress Reviews Complaints
Does it merit our recommendation? Yes.
Who’s it to be used for This latex foam Zenhaven will suit those sleeping in all positions, particularly those who want a firm cushion without that “sunk-in” sensation. It’s also good for those of all weights, including those who weigh over 200 pounds.
The way it feels The foam mattress can be turned over, and it has handles to help you easily choose between two options: Its Luxury Plush Side is located on the soft side of the medium-firm spectrum and it’s good for side-sleepers. Its Gentle Firm side offers a slightly firmer feel (the firm claims it’s around 20 percent more firmer, and that sounds right to us).
We like this: Zenhaven Zenhaven comprises of two latex layers (one of which is a zoned one for lower-back support and pressure points however this could or may not be helpful according to your body size and the position you sleep on your mattress). Latex is a type of foam that comes from the milky sap of the rubber tree plant, and it is intrinsically better than polyurethane or memory foam, so we believe that this mattress is sturdy for people who weigh more than 200 pounds.
We are impressed that the Zenhaven is constructed specifically out of Talalay latex which is more flexible than Dunlop latex that is commonly used in stiffer, less expensive latex mattresses, such as the Sleep on Latex Pure Green. Both the Luxury Plush along with the Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven feel supple and not elasticky. The entire bed is also more comfortable than beds that are mostly made from Dunlop latex.
I lay on the Zenhaven for a few months. Personally, I prefer a more pillowy feeling (like it’s counterpart, the Saatva Classic), but the Luxury Plush side of the Zenhaven has gotten more comfortable to me. After using it for a couple of weeks, I started to appreciate its soft slightly springy surface as well as its cushioned cradle.
My son, who is 10, enjoys playing on it, and the Zenhaven’s motion aversion isn’t a barrier to me experiencing that. However, it’s sufficient that I don’t feel the need to notice my husband’s movements in the evening. Edge support on the Zenhaven is slightly higher than the majority of foam mattresses, and even on the Loom & Leaf.
Our husband who weighs barely 200 pounds, and who usually rests with his back on, likes that the Zenhaven to be more solid and appealing than the memory-foam Loom & Leaf The Relaxed Soft or Saatva Classic Luxury Firm. Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is shipped by movers, and not in a box, which means you’re less likely emit that new-mattress smell in your home. You can choose between the soft luxury Plush side as well as the Gentle Firm side as your preferences and needs change, or if you just aren’t certain which firmness degree you’ll prefer. Because the mattress is heavy (the queen weighs at 125 kilograms), Saatva will send moving experts to help you out by completing a single “courtesy” flip.
What we don’t like:Although the Zenhaven has more supple and soft feel than other mattresses that are all-latex online, it’s still less luxurious-feeling as comparable innersprings or traditional foam mattresses because it’s not typically “fluffy.” It was the only 2 (of 29) employees who liked it better than other models in our 2020 test of foam and hybrid mattresses said they liked that it was supportive, and believed that it could 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, 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) plus a metal frame.
Zenhaven top owner-review feedback
We could find only 18 high-quality owner reviews for Zenhaven. It’s a tiny sample size to provide any definitive, non-subjective conclusion, beyond excellent customer service. We did however find a particularly descriptive post written by a more long-term owner who was not sure of his weight (though he did claim that he was 6 feet 4 inches tall).
He said that after a year an half, he appreciated its cushion and resilience however, as he hadn’t been rotating the mattressregularly, he noticed a hip impression; when he started rotating the mattress each six months, he claimed the imprint disappeared. This section will be updated once we’ve collected more high-quality reviews. Saatva Mattress Reviews Complaints
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 people who move around often. It’s durable enough for the majority of people, even those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
How it feels:This 13-inch latex-and-coil hybrid is on the firm side of medium-firm. It’s distinctly buoyant and slightly bouncy, and has some cushioning and the feeling of being cradled. It’s not a plush mattress however, and it’s more comfortable to sleep the mattress the mattress rather than within it.
What we love:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is constructed using top-quality materials and construction methods. The quilted surface, made of cotton and wool (a natural fire retardant) is hand-tufted to the layers below it. Tufting (commonly seen on upholstery or traditional-style in-sofa mattresses) is a form of stitching with a heavy-duty structure that holds the layers together Some argue that it can last longer than glue and avoids the potential chemical smell that is often associated with adhesives. Its peaks as well as valleys produced by tufting could help limit any obvious body impressions. This is more than the sock-covered, smooth-topped mattresses that are typically seen in online hybrids.
Though most hybrids place an layer of polyurethane foam on top of 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 durable and breathable than memory foams or polyurethane. Talalay latex, which is also used in Zenhaven model, is a much more breathable and supple-feeling foam than the Dunlop variety often found in lower-priced latex mattresses.
Wirecutter’s supervising Editor Wendy Schley tested the Saatva Latex Hybrid for several months at home. She found it to be extremely supportive and durable. “It feels like it’s floating,” she said. “There’s some cushioning however it’s not extravagant in a plush way.” Wendy found that the mattress had a bouncy, springy feel reminiscent of a traditional innerspring-she was never stuck. However, the latex foam did provide some motion isolation. Edge support was great, due to thick (13 3/4-gauge) 8-inch coils that run along the perimeter.
Because of its breathable materials (the Talalay latex, cotton cover and wool layer on the top) as well as the coils in the middle, this Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all-foam mattresses and hybrids made from polyfoams. Wendy, who tends to be hot at night, found the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be significantly cooler than other mattresses, although we haven’t tested it in the summertime.
We haven’t seen enough quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to discern any trends, but we’ll keep you updated when we can.
What we don’t like: Though the coils are wrapped individually but there’s still a hint of motion transfer, due to they’re coils. It’s not as noticeable as movement transfer that’s present on Saatva Classic, but it’s much more prominent 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 has fewer coils, it sometimes means it won’t be able to be as comfortable to your body. However, the supple feel that the layer of latex makes up for that.
As Wendy has experienced, as Wendy experienced, the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an Ahhh sort of mattress. It’s as if it’s lifting you up rather than nestling you in. It may not offer enough cushioning to offer adequate pressure relief to side-sleepers as well as back-sleepers who need extra cushioning on specific joints.
Wendy, sleeping on both her side and back and reported that she occasionally woke up with soreness in her lower back and shoulders after sleeping on the Saatva Latex Hybrid. If you’re looking for something a bit more luxurious, you might want to consider the 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 Latex Hybrid’s tufting is highlighted by attractive yarn tassels. They are pretty, but they are reportedly flimsy attached to the mattress, and one of the tassels on the mattress Wendy tried to unraveled after some time. Saatva Mattress Reviews Complaints
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
Saatva’s Solaire has an adjustable air bed made of foam on top of air chambers which can be programmed to the level you prefer with an electronic remote. We haven’t yet tried the Solaire yet however, we’ll update this article when we’ve had the chance to. We’ll discuss what we know about the Solaire.
Saatva launched the Solaire in the year 2019 to rival the Sleep Number’s high-end i8 mattress. Along with air chambers as well as an integrated remote The Solaire comes with the option of a pillow top, Talalay Latex Layer, as well as a gel-infused memory-foam layer. It’s also priced at $650 less that the Sleep Number I8.
The remote has 50 settings as opposed to Sleep Number’s 20. However, 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.
However we won’t be able to tell for sure until we lie on the mattress. The Solaire’s Talalay latex components suggest long-lasting however, since Sleep Number doesn’t divulge information about its foam components, we can’t claim that one mattress is more durable than the other.
Whether you choose a twin, a king, or something else in between, you can order this Solaire in any size, as an ordinary model. Or, if you choose a queen or a king, you can upgrade to the Upper-Flex queen or the king, or the split King, which all feature 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). However, the Upper-Flex queen, king and the split king option are designed to be specifically compatible with adjustable bases that permit each side to adjust independently.
Saatva Company offers adjustable frames. Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, including Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Upper-Flex. With the Upper-Flex frame, couples can use the remote to adjust their heads and shoulders individually (for instance, one person can lay flat and sleep while the other person sits and reads or reads a book).
The Upper-Flex designed specifically for the split king Solaire will also permit both to elevate their lower bodies independently. We didn’t have enough top-quality owner reviews to include here, but we’ll update this guide once we’re in a position to test the bed ourselves and gather additional reviews. Saatva Mattress Reviews Complaints
In May 2019, Saatva introduced the Saatva HD which is a hybrid mattress specifically designed for those who weigh between 300-500 pounds. We haven’t yet tested the product yet but we’re planning to test it in the near future.
Similar to Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf the Saatva HD has a pillowy quilted top layer but the dense underlying foam and coil layers allegedly support more weight.We’re especially curious about the top of the pillow in the HD because experts told us that for those who are heavier 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). What’s more, the HD’s 12 1/2-gauge coils are thicker than those in the other models from the company as well as those of its rivals including Big Fig. Big Fig.
But these aren’t necessarily the only criteria that affect a mattress’s durability, and durability alone does not make for a desirable mattress. We’ll explore these questions further in an forthcoming guide to mattresses for people who weigh more than 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly recommends” that you put this mattress on a sturdy platform bed that has vertical center support.
If not, they advised us to buy the HD together with its unique “high durability” timber-slat-based foundation.We also spotted a few helpful user reviews. When we’ve collected enough information to discern any trends and try the mattress out, we’ll give an update. Saatva Mattress Reviews Complaints
The Saatva Youth is the company’s innovative coil-and-foam mattress for children costs more than mattresses for adults. It is however dual-sided, with the coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam and a mattress that can be able to grow with the kid.
Its first layer is intended for children aged 3 to 7 and is comprised of polyfoam that is zoned, with densities that range from 1.4 up to 1.8 pounds per cubic foot.
On the second side, designed for kids older than that (the company says ages 8 through 12) the foam density is 1.5 grams per cubic foot. It’s also a bit softer because it’s paired with the firmer side of the coil unit. The 13 3/4 gauge coils range from 330 in a twin up to 350 in a twin XL and 462 in the full.
The Saatva Youth is 10 inches thick and bunk-bed-friendly-as long as the bed’s guardrail is at least 5 inches higher than the mattress, for safety reasons. For those who prefer natural materials, might appreciate that the mattress is encased in a thick, quilted organic-cotton covers and utilizes thistle pulp (as instead of chemical sprays or fiberglass) as the fire retardant. We haven’t yet tried this mattress, nor have we spotted any reviews online. However, we’re planning to test it for a future guide to kids’ mattresses.
The Saatva Youth is the company’s innovative coil-and-foam mattress for kids, costs more than some mattresses designed for adults. However, it is dual-sided, with the coil layer sandwiched between two foam layers, so the mattress can expand with the child.
The first side is designed for kids ages 3 through 7, and it is made up of polyfoam that is zoned, with densities ranging between 1.4 and 1.8 kg per cubic foot.
The second side is intended for older kids (the company claims ages 8 through 12), the foam density can be as high as 1.5 grams per cubic foot and somewhat more softer due to it being paired with the more solid section of coil. The 13 3/4 gauge coils vary from 330 in a twin 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. Those who prefer natural materials will appreciate that the mattress is covered in a quilted, thick organic-cotton cover and uses thistle pulp (as opposed to fiberglass or chemical sprays) as the flame retardant. We haven’t yet tried this 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 Reviews Complaints
