In the crowded field of mattresses on the internet, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. It delivers its mattresses via trucks, not in boxes. And even though, like other online sellers they have progressively increased its inventory, Saatva remains focused on the selection of “luxury” designs, all priced less than it’s Youth model, which is more than $1,500 (for a queen). Saatva Mattress Reviews Consumer Reports
Sure, there’s a whole collection of mattresses that are more lavish than Saatva’s, with more coils and better materials.
We find Saatva’s mattresses to be among the most elegant-looking and well-designed options offered by an online retailer.
In the last three years, our team has tested Saatva’s Innerspring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom and Leaf, as well as the all-latex Zenhaven which have all placed among our top picks in our guide to the best foam mattresses as well as the top innerspring mattresses.
We’ve also experienced sleeping on Saatva’s Saatva latex hybrid, and we’ve researched the design and construction of the rest of the mattresses in the Saatva lineup.The majority of online mattresses are either hybrids or foams so this Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the very few innerspring mattresses that you can purchase on the internet.
Pocketed coils provide Saatva Classic Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top, and a plush top adds softness. Also, as with the rest of Saatva’s mattresses they are delivered by movers. Saatva Classic is delivered by moving trucks, not in boxes. Saatva offers an extensive 180-day trial and easy returns.
All-foam Loom & Leaf is made with denser memory foam than other mattresses under $1,000, making it less likely to sag over time. This is why it’s more suitable for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
The thick, quilted cover is more cushier, and more substantial than the sock-like covers on most foam mattresses, and it makes the memory foam underneath feel less soft and squishy.
Just like you’d expect with an innerspring mattress, the Loom and Leaf is able to limit movement more as compared to an innerspring Saatva Classic.All-foam Zenhaven comprises primarily of latex-specifically Talalay latex, which is made of the rubber tree’s milky sap, and is intrinsically tough. Talalay is more flexible than Dunlop latex and is usually found in cheaper latex mattresses we’ve tested.
Zenhaven is a good choice. Zenhaven can also be flipped (the Luxury Plush side feels medium-firm, whereas Gentle Firm feels a bit firmer). Gentle Firm side feels a bit firmer), which might prove beneficial if you’re unsure what you prefer or if your needs change over time.
This is not a conventionally cushiony mattress, however it has a soft cushion, good edge support, and a subtle springiness.
Due to its inherent durability, the Zenhaven should work well for people who weigh more than 200 pounds. Saatva Mattress Reviews Consumer Reports
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 adjustable air chambers)
- Saatva HD (a latex-coil hybrid designed for sleepers who weigh 300 to 500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil-based hybrid designed for children ages 3-12)
We haven’t yet taken an in-depth analysis of what we consider to be the “natural” claims made by Saatva or others “eco-friendly” brands.
However, we know that the company makes use of organic wool or thistle pulp as a fire retardant (as as opposed to fiberglass or chemicals) and only organic cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its cover.
Similar to other online mattress companies, Saatva touts such extras as zoned layers for “optimal spinal support”; we’re less impressed with those features but we’re more impressed by Saatva’s customer service that is responsive and durable foams and coils. Saatva Mattress Reviews Consumer Reports
Saatva Video Review
Who’s it intended forThe Saatva Classic will likely appeal to those who prefer a cushy (but not overly bulky) top layer and the feel of a solid, durable. This Luxury Firm model (Saatva’s “Medium” product) that we tried is a good choice for people who are back-, sidestomach and side-sleepers. The soft Plush Soft version caters primarily to side-sleepers as does the Firm version for stomach and back-sleepers.
What it feels like:We tested the Luxury Firm version of the Saatva Classic, the model with the most popularity-and discovered it to be soft to the touch, and has good cushioning and bounce. It has an incredibly firm feel but it softens slightly after a period of break-in time of a few months.
What we like:The Saatva Classic is one of the few innerspring mattresses that you can buy online with the ease that is commonly associated with purchasing an inflatable foam mattress. It is made up of 416 robust coils in the base for support, with 884 wrapped individually, more-pliable coils stacked on top, to provide pressure relief. There’s also a bit of memory foam included in the mix, however the cushioning is actually the 3-inch polyfoam and fiber Euro top (an additional layer of cushion sewn under the surface). The resultant feel is broad in appeal-supportive, resilient, and with a plushness that doesn’t feel bulky.
We test the 14 1/2-inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm in a group test that included springs (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 testers) in the category of $1,000 to $2,000 (which included it alongside the Avocado as well as the Parachute, and the first-place WinkBed). Five of the nine test subjects were awestruck by their Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses tested in the test that day, including those that cost twice as much; two of the nine test participants chose the Saatva Classic as their second choice overall.
As for the home test I was looking at the prospect of sleeping in this bed every night. I’m not a fan of a billowy bed, so I appreciated its Euro top felt to me like just the ideal amount of cuddling. The bed has some bounce however not enough 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 is often) It’s a good value at around $1,600. Saatva Classic is the least expensive innerspring mattress we’ve tested that feels substantial and luxurious. We also like that you can choose from three firmness levels-Plush soft, luxury firm, or Firm, so you’ll be able to get a perfect fit regardless of which mattress you’re sleeping in. Contrary to the more soft WinkBed Another option from our innerspring mattress guide, the Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by moving companies (so the “new mattress smell” has already disappeared in the factory and during transport), and this “white gloves” delivery service is completely free. The company offers a generous 180-day trial period, as well as the warranty for 15 years.
We don’t love: If you’re not a fan of the bounce of a mattress, or if you’re sensitive to your sleeping 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 bottom coils aren’t, so the bed has more motion transfer than the other innerspring options, such as the WinkBed. If you don’t like any bounce at all it’s better to go 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 felt medium-firm; after a year and half later, we found that it had softened a small amount but in a nice way (at at least to me). This is not an “Soft” mattress However, those who prefer it might want to try it out. Plush Soft version, which we haven’t tried yet.
The company boasts of the “active Lumbar Zone” technology to provide “additional back support” our husband (who weighs just under 200 pounds) still craved more support when he was in the Luxury Firm. It could be that he found it in the Firm version, but we haven’t tested it in the past, and so don’t know for sure. In general, we’re not awed by the zoned technology, because people are of different sizes and heights, and they might sprawl in ways that don’t coincide with the patterns of zoning.
The foam densities in Saatva Classic are lower than those in Saatva Classic are less than those in the Loom & Leaf, the company’s foam-mattress offering. While representatives from the company wouldn’t reveal the details, we were told that memory foam is at minimum three pounds for each cubic foot, and the density of polyfoam is 1 1/2 pounds per cubic foot.
They’re not as impressive as the densities in the Loom & Leaf, but the specs are typical for an innerspring mattress, and especially one in this price category. Contrary to foam mattresses the steel coils of this mattress provide additional support, and the quilting can help reduce body impressions.
However, as in this Reddit post suggests, some sleepers have had better results using their Saatva mattresses over the course of several years than others. We think that this could be due to the shape and size of the sleeper. Like all Euromattress – also known as a pillow-top mattress, the more you weigh the greater chance of seeing sagging and imprints over time.
So you’ll want to turn your mattress regularly at least every six months. You should also sleep over the bed.
Saatva Classic top owner-review feedback
We found only 39 high-quality owner reviews (those that weren’t untrue or unclear and were published recently, between 2019 and 2020). While the sample size is rather small, it’s interesting that more than 30% of the favorable reviews praised Saatva’s customer support. That’s a much bigger percentage than what we’ve seen with other online mattress businesses.
We also observed that six of the reviewers mentioned that sagging was a problem; one of them had a weight of more than 200 pounds and the other were lighter or did not mention. Each of them had owned the mattress for over an entire year prior to the date they wrote their reviews. This suggests that rotating the mattress is vital 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 Reviews Consumer Reports
Saatva Loom & Leaf
Who is it for: The all-foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who like a memory foam that holds, as opposed to engulfing them in a soft, slow hug. The soft Relaxed Firm model could be ideal for sleepers on the side. It is intended for back- or stomach-sleepers. Anyone who weighs more than 200 pounds may also find the Firm to be more comfortable over the Relaxed version.
How it feels:The Relaxed Firm is a mattress with a moderate firmness that holds you without pulling you in. the Firm (which we’ve tried only in an actual showroom) is firmer.
What we likeabout it: The 12-inch thick Loom & Leaf comes with a durable, quilted, and sturdy cover, similar to the one you’d find on a high-quality innerspring mattress (by contrast, many memory foam mattresses are made of sock-like, thin covers). The cover is made of foam padding that adds more depth to the normally simple squishiness of memory foam mattresses. I have slept on the Relaxed firm at home for more than one week and enjoyed the fact that it was soft and substantial at the same time. Our husband who likes mattress that are firm, and weighs 70 pounds heavier than me-felt 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 believe that this mattress is less likely to slide or create body indentions as compared to cheaper foam mattresses, even for people who weigh over 200 pounds (though maybe not in the case of those that weigh over 250 pounds; read the owner review feedback below). Like every foam mattress has a high-quality motion isolation.
We compared the Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses costing over $1,000) and found that 20 of the 29 respondents preferred to the Loom & Leaf. “It felt softer” was the most frequent explanation; some even described it as being more “cushioned.” When we tested it against it against the Casper Wave in 2019, the results were split (18 for the Wave and sixteen for it; 16 for the Loom & Leaf). The people who chose the Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more flexible” feeling or the quilting’s texture and those who opted for to go with the Casper Wave described the Wave as having more support and that the Loom & Leaf as making the feel of being “stuck.”
We also appreciate that the Loom & Leaf, like the rest of Saatva Company’s mattresses, comes delivered without boxes, by movers. That means you don’t have to let it air out, as you would the majority of mattresses that are boxed; off-gassing is likely to have already been done in the factory.
What we don’t like: We wish Saatva offered a firmness level between Relaxed Firm and Firm. two levels seem at a minimum, a few degrees from each other. And although Loom & Leaf Loom & Leaf has better edge support than some of the more well-known online models (such as the Leesa as well as the Casper), it isn’t as sturdy as a Hybrid (like the Leesa Hybrid or the Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom and Leaf’s cool gel as well as the pin-core (punctured) design that is featured on the top layer, I slept a bit warmer on this mattress which was a surprise since I’m always cold. However, given that it was mid-winter of the winter season, I don’t feel the cold at all. The tiny holes that are designed for cooling might compromise the durability in the mattress, however likely only a little. Since it is the Loom & Leaf has a top layer of memory foam that weighs 4 pounds per cubic foot, it will remain more durable than your standard foam mattress that costs less than $1,000.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We only found 16 recent, high-quality reviewers of Loom & Leaf. Loom & Leaf. Like similar to the Saatva Classic, good customer service stands out among the positive feedback. In the years 2019 and 2020 many reviewers described the Loom & Leaf as “too firm” than “too smooth.” But it’s not easy to determine its texture. Many reviewers didn’t mention whether they’d ordered either the Relaxed Firm or the Firm.
We also noticed that more seasoned reviewers often review the Loom & Leaf as too soft, or even too saggy. We found complaints on Reddit about it being too soft or even saggy. Relaxed Firm version not being firm enough for people who weigh between 250 pounds. If that is the case, then consider to go with the Firm version (though, again, it’s extremely firm) and it could be the the Tempur-Adapt (which also has dense foam but a more-distinct memory-foam hug). If you weigh over 200 pounds, you should think about an alternative like the Zenhaven that is made of more durable latex foam. Saatva Mattress Reviews Consumer Reports
Do we recommend it? Yes.
Who’s it to be used for This latex foam Zenhaven is a good choice for people sleeping in all positions, but especially those who want a firm cushion, but without that “sunk-in” feeling. It’s also suitable for all types of people that include those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
The way it feels This foam mattress can be flipped and comes with handles to help you easily select between two choices: Its Luxury Plush side is at 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 sensation (the firm claims it’s around 20% firmer, and that seems right to us).
What we likeabout it: The Zenhaven comprises of two layers of latex (one of which is zoned for pressure points and lower back support although this could not be useful, depending on your size and position on the mattress). Latex is a kind of foam made by the milky sap of the rubber tree plant, and it is intrinsically better than polyurethane or memory foam, and so we think that this mattress is durable for those who weigh over 200 pounds.
We love this mattress because the Zenhaven is made specifically from Talalay latex, which feels more flexible than Dunlop latex that is commonly used in cheaper, stiffer 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 flexible. The entire bed is also more comfortable than beds made mostly with Dunlop latex.
I have slept on the Zenhaven for several months. Personally, I prefer a more pillowy feel (like it’s counterpart, the Saatva Classic) however, the Luxury Plush part of the Zenhaven has gotten more comfortable to me. After putting it to the test for a few weeks, I started to appreciate its supple slightly springy surface as well as its cushioned cradle.
My 10-year-old son also likes playing on it, and the Zenhaven’s motion aversion doesn’t prevent me from feeling it. However, it’s sufficient that I don’t notice my husband’s movements in the evening. Edge support on the Zenhaven is higher than the majority of foam mattresses, and even on the Loom & Leaf.
My husband, who weighs barely 200 pounds and usually rests with his back on, finds the Zenhaven superior to the other mattresses. It is more solid and attractive than the memory foam Loom & Leaf The Relaxed Soft or Saatva Classic Luxury Firm. Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is delivered by movers, not shipped in a container, so you’re less likely give off the fresh-mattress scent in your home. You can choose between the more soft Luxury Plush side and gentle firm side Gentle Firm side as your preferences and preferences shift, or if are unsure of the firmness degree you’ll prefer. Because the mattress is heavy (the queen is at 125 pounds), Saatva will send movers to help you by completing a single “courtesy” flip.
We don’t like:Although the Zenhaven has more supple and soft feel than other all-latex mattresses sold online however, it’s not as luxurious than comparable innersprings, or traditional foam mattresses since it’s not traditionally “fluffy.” The mere two (of 29) employees who enjoyed it more than other models in our 2020 study of the hybrid and foam mattresses stated that they enjoyed its firmness, and that they believed it would last for a long duration. (In the latex category, most staffers in our blind test preferred the PranaSleep Lotus Asana 6 in Plush, which has a latex-polyurethane-foam construction and costs over $1,000 more than the Zenhaven.)
Because 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 shape. Saatva sells a Boxspring Foundation (which comes in two sizes) and a frame made of metal.
Zenhaven top reviews of the owner
We were able to locate only 18 high-quality owner reviews for Zenhaven. It’s a tiny sample to draw any firm, non-subjective conclusions, beyond good customer service. We did however find one particularly insightful post from a long-term owner who was not sure of his weight (though the owner did state that the height was 6 feet 4 inches in height).
He stated that after a year and one-half, he was impressed by its cushion and strength however, as he hadn’t been turning the mattress around, he noticed a hip impression and when he began rotating the mattress each six months, he said the impression was gone. This section will be updated once we’ve collected more high-quality reviews. Saatva Mattress Reviews Consumer Reports
Saatva Latex Hybrid
Who it’s to be used forThe Saatva Latex Hybrid is best suited to those who value durability over extravagantness. It’s ideal for stomach- and back-sleepers and those who toss and turn a lot. It should hold up well for the majority of people, even those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
How it feels:This 13-inch latex and coil hybrid is in the middle of medium-firm. It’s distinctly buoyant and slightly bouncy, and has some cushioning and cradling. It’s definitely not plush however, and you sleep more the mattress the mattress rather than inside it.
We like:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is built using high-quality materials and techniques for construction. The quilted surface, made out of cotton, and a layer of wool (a natural flame-repellant) is hand-tufted onto the layers beneath it. Tufting (commonly found on furniture or traditional-style mattress innersprings) is a type of stitching with a heavy-duty structure that binds the layers and is more durable than glue, and avoids the potential chemical smell of adhesives. These peaks and valleys produced by tufting can reduce any visible body impressions. This is more than the smooth-topped, sock-covered mattresses you typically see on hybrids that are sold online.
While most hybrids put an layer of polyurethane foam on top of coils this one Saatva Latex Hybrid uses 3 inches of Talalay latex foam (which is plenty, when compared to the more expensive Casper Wave, which uses less). Latex is more breathable and durable than polyurethane or memory foams. Talalay latex, used in the Zenhaven mattress, is a more breathable and supple-feeling foam in comparison to the Dunlop varieties that are typically found in low-cost latex mattresses.
Wirecutter’s supervisory Editor Wendy Schley tested the Saatva Latex Hybrid for several months in her home. She found it to be strong and supportive. “It is almost buoyant,” she said. “There’s some cushioning to it but it’s not luxurious in the way that a luxurious mattress would be.” Wendy found that the mattress has a buoyant springy feeling that reminded her of an innerspring. She also was never stuck. However, the latex foam offered some motion-simplification. Edge support was superb due to the large (13 3/4 -gauge) 8-inch coils around the edge.
Due to its breathable material (the Talalay latex, cotton cover, and wool layer in the top) and coils, the Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all-foam mattresses and hybrids that are made of polyfoams. Wendy who is known to be hot at night, found that the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be significantly cooler than other mattresses, though we haven’t tested it during summer.
We haven’t found enough high-quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to discern any trends, but we’ll keep you updated when we do.
What we don’t like about HTML0: Though the coils are wrapped in a single piece but there’s still a hint of motion transfer due to, it’s just that, coils. It’s not as noticeable as motion transfer on the Saatva Classic, however, it’s more noticeable when compared to all-foam models such as those from the Loom & Leaf or Zenhaven.
A queen-size Latex Hybrid contains 789 coils (fewer than the other hybrid mattresses, the 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 adjust in your shape. But the firmness that the layer of latex more than makes more up for it.
As Wendy discovered, the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an ahhh sort of mattress. It feels like it’s lifting you, instead of tucking you in. It may not offer enough cushioning to provide enough pressure relief to side sleepers or back sleepers who require additional cushioning on specific joints.
Wendy, who sleeps on her back and sides 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 to get something more luxurious, you might prefer the Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf (both come in multiple degree of firmness, with some that feel softer than the Saatva Latex).
The Latex Hybrid’s tufting is highlighted by attractive yarn tassels. They look pretty but appear to be flimsy, and one of the tassels that were on the mattress Wendy tested unraveled after a few weeks. Saatva Mattress Reviews Consumer Reports
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
Saatva’s Solaire can be described as an adjustable air bed made of foam placed on top of air chambers which can be programmed to the level you prefer with a remote. We haven’t yet tried the Solaire yet however, we’ll update this guide when we do. We’ll discuss what we do know.
Saatva introduced the Solaire in 2019 to compete with the Sleep Number’s top-of-the-line i8 mattress. Along with air chambers as well as an integrated remote and a remote, the Solaire comes with a pillow top, a Talalay Latex Layer, as well as the gel-infused memory foam layer. It’s also cheaper by $650 over the Sleep Number’s i8.
The remote has 50 settings as opposed to Sleep Number’s 20 settings, but in reality, we’re not sure if users really need 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.
But, of course we won’t be able to tell whether they’re the best choice until we lay in the bed. Solaire’s Talalay latex material suggests longevity However, because Sleep Number doesn’t provide any information about its foam components, we can’t claim that one mattress has more durability than another.
If you decide to go with one of the twins or a king size, or something in between You can purchase this Solaire at any length, as the standard model. If you prefer either a queen or a King or split king, you can upgrade to the Upper-Flex queen or king, or split king. All of them feature dual air chambers meaning that the sleepers can select their own level of firmness.
The standard model works on every bed frame (including bases that can be adjusted). But the Upper-Flex queen and king and the split-king models are made to work specifically on adjustable bases that permit each side to adjust independently.
It is worth noting that 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 a remote to position their shoulders and heads separately (for example, one person can lie flat to sleep while the other one sits and reads or reads a book).
The Upper-Flex designed for the split king Solaire will also permit both to raise their bodies independently. We couldn’t locate enough high-quality owner reviews to list here however we’ll be updating this guide once we’re able test the bed for ourselves and gather more reviews. Saatva Mattress Reviews Consumer Reports
Similar to the Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf, the Saatva HD has a pillowy quilted top layer however, the thick coils and foam underneath allegedly support more weight.We’re particularly curious about the top of the pillow in the HD since experts have told us that for people who weigh more the top of pillows could be more susceptible 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). Additionally the HD’s 12 1/2 -gauge coils are more robust than the coils in the company’s other models and the coils in rival models like The Big Fig.
However, these aren’t the only things that impact the durability of a mattress and, by itself, isn’t enough to make a good mattress. We’ll be looking into these questions further in an upcoming guide to mattresses for people who weigh more than 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly recommends” that you place this mattress on a solid platform bed with vertical center support.
In other words, Saatva representatives advised us that you should buy the HD together with its unique “high durabil” wooden-slat base.Again, we spotted very few user reviews that were positive. After we’ve had enough data to discern any patterns and have the ability to test the mattress, we’ll send an update. Saatva Mattress Reviews Consumer Reports
It’s called the Saatva Youth The company’s new bed made of coils and foams for children, costs more than some mattresses for adults. However, it is double-sided, featuring an inner coil sandwiched between two foam layers which means that the mattress will grow along with a kid.
One side of the mattress is intended for children aged 3 to 7 years old, and it is made up of zoned polyfoam , which has densities ranging from 1.4 to 1.8 kg per cubic foot.
The second side is designed for kids older than that (the company says ages 8 through 12) the foam density ranges from 1.5 grams per cubic foot. It’s also a bit softer because it’s paired with the more firm side in the coil. The 13 3/4 -gauge coils range from 330 in a twin up to 350 in 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. People who prefer natural materials may appreciate the fact that the mattress is wrapped in a thick, quilted organic-cotton covers and utilizes thistle pulp (as opposed to fiberglass or chemical sprays) as the flame retardant. We haven’t tried the mattress, nor have we spotted any online reviews. However, we’re planning to test it for a possible guide to mattresses for kids.
The Saatva Youth, the company’s relatively new bed made of coils and foams for children is priced higher than mattresses designed for adults. It is however double-sided, featuring the coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam which means that the mattress will be able to grow with a child.
The first side is intended for kids ages 3 through 7, and it consists of polyfoam that is zoned, with density ranging between 1.4 and 1.8 pounds per cubic foot.
On the other side, intended for older kids (the company states that it’s for between ages 8 and 12) the density of foam ranges from 1.5 grams per cubic foot and somewhat less softer since it’s coupled with the more firm part of the coil. The 13 3/4 gauge coils range from 330 in the size of a twin, up to 350 for a twin-XL and 462 for 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 will appreciate that the mattress is covered in a quilted, thick organic cotton cover. It also uses thistle pulp (as instead of fiberglass or chemical sprays) to act as a flame-resistant. We haven’t yet tried this mattress and we haven’t seen any reviews on the internet.
However, we’d like to test it in the future for a guide to mattresses for kids. Saatva Mattress Reviews Consumer Reports
