In the sea of online mattresses, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. It delivers its mattresses via truck, instead of in the form of a box. And even though, like other sellers on the internet, it has rapidly expanded its line, Saatva remains focused on a range of “luxury” models, each priced at, with the exception of the Youth model, over $1500 (for one queen size). Saatva Mattress Rotate
Sure, there’s a collection of mattresses which are more luxurious than Saatva’s, featuring higher coil counts and finer materials.
But we find Saatva’s mattresses to be among the most beautiful and thoughtfully designed choices that are available from an online business.
In the last three years, our team has gathered to test the insidespring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom & Leaf, and 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 best innerspring mattresses.
We’ve also experienced sleeping on Saatva’s Saatva Mid-Latex Hybrid and have studied the components and construction of the rest of the beds from Saatva’s line-up.The majority of online mattresses are foams or hybrids, therefore the Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the very few innerspring mattresses that you can buy online.
Pocketed coils provide the Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top, and a plush top adds softness. Additionally, like the rest of Saatva’s mattresses that are available, the Saatva Classic is delivered by the movers rather than the form of a box. Saatva also provides the option of a 180-day trial and simple returns.
All-foam Loom & Leaf is constructed with more dense memory foam than other mattresses under $1,000, making it less likely to shift over time. It’s more suitable for those who weigh over 200 pounds.
The quilted, thick cover is more cushier and sturdy than the sock-like cover of most foam mattresses and the cover helps the memory foam underneath feel less squishy.
Just like you’d expect with a memory-foam bed The Loom and Leaf reduces motion more that the innerspring Saatva Classic.All-foam Zenhaven consists mostly of latex-specifically Talalay latex. It’s made of the rubber tree’s milky sap and is intrinsically durable. Talalay is less stiff than Dunlop latex, which is typically found in cheaper latex mattresses that we’ve tried.
The Zenhaven is also flippable (the Luxury Plush side feels moderately firm, while the Gentle Firm side feels a slightly firmer) It could prove helpful if you’re not sure what you prefer or if your preferences change over time.
This is not a conventionally cushiony mattress, however it offers a supple cushion, good edge support, and slight springiness.
Given its innate durability it is recommended that the Zenhaven will be suitable for those who weigh more than 200 pounds. Saatva Mattress Rotate
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 hybrid of latex and coils specifically designed for those who weigh between 300-500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil-based hybrid designed for kids ages 3 through 12)
We haven’t yet taken a deep dive into what we consider to be the “natural” claims made by Saatva or others “eco-friendly” brands.
But we do know that the company makes use of organic wool or thistle pulp as a flame retardant (as opposed to chemicals or fiberglass) as well as only natural cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its covers.
Similar to other online mattress manufacturers, Saatva touts such extras as zones for “optimal spinal support” We’re not as satisfied with these features, but we’re more impressed by Saatva’s quick customer service and its durable coils and foams. Saatva Mattress Rotate
Saatva Video Review
Who is it to be used forThe Saatva Classic is likely to suit people who prefer a cushy (but not too big and bulky) top layer and a sturdy, resilient feel. This Luxury Firm variant (Saatva’s “Medium” offer) that we tried, should suit side-, backstomach and side-sleepers. The soft Plush Soft version is targeted 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 line’s most popular option-and found it to be soft to the touch, and has good rebound and support. It has a squarely medium-firm feel, but it becomes softer after the break-in period of a few months.
What we like:The Saatva Classic is one of the very few innerspring mattresses that you can purchase online without the ease that is typically associated with buying the traditional boxed foam mattress. It has 416 strong, solid coils at its base for support and 884 individually wrapped, more flexible coils on top for pressure relief. There’s a small amount of memory foam in the mix, however the cushioning is actually the 3-inch polyfoam and fiber Euro top (an extra layer of cushion sewn underneath the surface). The resultant feel is broad in appeal-supportive, resilient, and with a plushness that doesn’t feel overwhelmingly billowy.
We test the 14 1/2 -inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm during a 2021 test group for innersprings (it’s offered in 11 inches), and it captured the second-highest number of top-pick scores (nine among 39 testers) in the category of $1,000 to $2,000 (which included three other mattresses: the Avocado as well as the Parachute and the top-ranked WinkBed). Five of the nine testers were awestruck by the Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses tested in the test that day and included those that cost twice as expensive; two of the nine testers selected it as their second favorite overall.
In the case of the test at home I was looking at it as if I could sleep in this bed every night. I don’t like an overly billowy bed, so I liked how the Classic’s Euro top provided what seemed to me like just the ideal amount of cuddle. The bed has some bounce but not so much that my husband’s rolling 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’s often) The Saatva Classic is the least expensive innerspring mattress we’ve tried that feels substantial and has a touch of luxury. We also like the fact that you have the option of choosing from three different levels of firmness: Plush soft, luxury firm or Firm, so you’ll be able to find the right one regardless of what sleeping position you choose to sleep in. Unlike the more-billowy WinkBed, another pick in the innerspring mattress guide, the Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by movers (so that “new mattresses smell” is already gone from the factory and during transport) Also, this “white gloves” delivery service is free. The company provides a generous 180-day trial period, as well as an extended warranty of 15 years.
What we don’t love: If you’re not fond of a bouncy mattress, or you’re insensitive to your partner’s movements while in bed it’s likely that you won’t be a fan of the Saatva Classic. While those coils at the top have been individually wrapped the bottom coils aren’t, so the bed has a bit more motion transfer than the other innerspring choices, such as the WinkBed. If you don’t like any kind of bounce it’s better to go with Saatva’s Loom & Leaf.
The Saatva Classic also requires a little bit of time to get used to. When we first tried the mattress in 2018, it felt medium-firm; a year and a two-thirds of a year later, we found that it had softened a little however in a pleasing way (at at least to me). It’s not an “Soft” mattress, however; those who prefer that might be interested in it out. Plush Soft version, which we haven’t yet tried.
Although the company touts the “active Lumbar Zone” technology for “additional back support,” my spouse (who weighs just under 200 pounds) was still in search of more support in the Luxury Firm. He may have found that feature in the version for Firm, but we haven’t had the chance to test the technology at this point, therefore we don’t be sure. In general, we are not overly impressed with zones, as people come in different sizes and heights, and they could spread out in a manner that doesn’t match the zoning patterns.
The foam densities in Saatva Classic are lower than those in Saatva Classic are less than those of the Loom & Leaf which is the company’s foam-mattress offering. While representatives from the company wouldn’t reveal specifics, we were told the density of memory foam weighs at least 3 pounds in cubic feet and the density of polyfoam of 1 1/2 pounds for each cubic foot.
These aren’t as high as those of the Loom & Leaf, but the specs are typical of an innerspring bed, and especially one in this price category. In contrast 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 indicates, some sleepers have had more success on Saatva mattresses. Saatva mattresses over the course of many years than others. We think that this could be due to the shape and size of the sleeper. Similar to all Europillows, or mattresses with a pillow top the heavier you weigh the higher the chance of experiencing sagging and impressions over time.
Therefore, you should rotate your mattress diligently at least every six months, and then 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 fake or vague and were written recently, in 2019 and 2020). Although the sample size was quite small, we believe it’s interesting that more than 30% of the positive reviews praised Saatva’s service to customers. This is a higher percentage than what we’ve seen with other online mattress companies.
We also observed that six of the reviewers mentioned that sagging was a problem; one of these reviewers was weighing more than 200lbs while the others were lighter or didn’t mention. Each of them had owned the mattress for more than an entire year prior to the date they wrote their reviews. This indicates that turning the mattress is crucial; heavier people who like innersprings might consider the option of a mattress made from more durable latex foam, like this one from the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Saatva Mattress Rotate
Saatva Loom & Leaf
Who it’s to be used for The all-foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who prefer a memory foam that cradles, as opposed to engulfing them in a tense, sluggish hug. The softer Relaxed Firm version could be ideal for sleepers on the side. It is designed for back- or stomach-sleepers. If you weigh over 200 pounds might be able to find the Firm version to be more supportive over the Relaxed version.
How it feels:The Relaxed Firm is a medium-firm mattress that cradles without tying you in; the Firm (which we’ve tested only in the showroom) is much firmer.
What we like: The 12-inch thick Loom & Leaf comes with an extremely durable, quilted cover similar to that you’d find on an innerspring mattress (by contrast, the majority of memory foam mattresses are made of sock-like, thin covers). That cover contains its own foam padding that adds more depth to the normally simple squishiness of memory foam mattresses. I lay on the Relaxed Firm at home for over a week, and I loved that it was soft and solid but also firm. My husband, who likes mattresses that are firm and weighs just 70 pounds heavier 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. With these specifications, we think this mattress is less likely to sag or develop body indents than cheaper foam mattresses, even for people who weigh over 200 pounds (though perhaps not in the case of those that weigh over 250 pounds; check reviews from owners, below). Like any foam mattress, it offers quality motion isolation.
The year 2020 was the first time we tested our Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses costing over $1,000) and found that 20 out of 29 people preferred the Loom & Leaf. “It felt softer” was a common motive; however, some said it was better “cushioned.” In the event that we examined it with it against the Casper Wave in 2019, the results were less unified (18 for the Wave 16 for that of the Loom & Leaf). Those who opted for more of the Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more fitting” feel or liked the texture of its quilting while those who went with the Casper Wave described the Wave as being more supportive and the Loom & Leaf as making the feel of being “stuck.”
We are also pleased 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 within the factory.
What we don’t like: We wish Saatva had a firmness level that was between Relaxed Firm and Firm. two levels appear to be to be at least a couple of degrees apart. Although it is true that the Loom & Leaf has better edge support than some of the more popular models on the internet (such like the Leesa and the Casper), it’s not as robust as a hybrid (like those like the Leesa Hybrid or Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom & Leaf’s cooling gel and pin core (punctured) design touted on the top layer, I did sleep a little warm on the mattress, which was surprising because I’m always cold. Given that it was the middle of winter, I didn’t mind too much. The tiny holes made for cooling might compromise the durability of the foam, but it’s likely to be only marginally. Given that this Loom & Leaf has a top-layer memory-foam density of 4 tons per cubic foot it should be more durable than your standard foam mattress that costs less than $1,000.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We only found 16 high-quality, recent user reviews for the Loom & Leaf. Like Saatva Classic, as with Saatva Classic, excellent customer service is a standout from the positive reviews. In 2019 and 2020 many reviewers said that this Loom & Leaf as “too firm” rather than “too soft.” But it’s not easy to make a conclusion about its texture. A lot of reviewers did not specify if they’d purchased either the Relaxed Firm or the Firm.
We also observed that more seasoned reviewers often refer to the Loom & Leaf as too soft, or even too saggy. For instance, we found complaints on Reddit concerning this Relaxed Firm version sagging for people who weigh between 250 pounds. If this is you, you might try using the Firm version (though it’s very stiff) as well as it could be the Tempur-Adapt (which is also made of dense foam but a more-distinct memory foam hug). If you weigh well over 200 pounds, you should think about the Zenhaven, which is built with more durable latex foam. Saatva Mattress Rotate
Does it merit our recommendation? Yes.
Who’s it intended for Its latex foam Zenhaven is a good choice for people sleeping in all positions, but especially those who want a firm cushion without that “sunk-in” feeling. It’s also great for all types of people, including those who weigh over 200 pounds.
How it feels: This foam mattress is flippable and has handles that let you select between two choices: Its Luxury Plush Side is located on the gentle side of the medium-firm range, and it’s good for side-sleepers. Its Gentle Firm side offers a slightly firmer feel (the company claims that it’s 20 percent firmer, which seems right to us).
What we likeabout it: Zenhaven Zenhaven is made up of two layers of latex (one that is zoned for lower-back support and pressure points although this could not be useful according to your body size and position on the mattress). Latex is a kind of foam made from the milky sap the rubber tree plant, and is better than polyurethane foam or memory foam, and so we think this mattress is sturdy for people who weigh over 200 pounds.
We love it that Zenhaven is specifically made from Talalay latex, which feels more soft than Dunlop latex that is commonly used in stiffer, less expensive latex mattresses, such as the Sleep On Latex Pure Green. The luxury Plush and Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven are incredibly soft and springy, but not elastic. The whole bed is also more comfortable than beds that are mostly made from Dunlop latex.
I slept in the Zenhaven for several months. Personally, I prefer a soft feeling (like it’s counterpart, the Saatva Classic), but the Luxury Plush part of the Zenhaven had grown on me. After putting it to the test for a few weeks, I started to appreciate its supple, slightly springy surface and the cushioned cradle.
My 10-year-old son also likes playing on it, and the Zenhaven’s motion aversion isn’t a barrier to me experiencing that. However, it’s sufficient that I’m not aware of my husband’s movements during the night. Edge support on the Zenhaven is higher than the majority of foam mattresses, such as the Loom & Leaf.
The husband of my friend, who weighs less than 200 pounds and rests with his back on, finds the Zenhaven as more substantive and attractive than the memory foam Loom & Leaf Relaxed Soft or the Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is shipped by movers, not shipped in a box, which means you’re less likely give off the fresh-mattress scent in your home. You can switch between the more soft Luxury Plush side as well as gentle firm side Gentle Firm side as your preferences and preferences change, or you just aren’t certain which firmness degree you’ll prefer. Since the mattress is very heavy (the queen is 125 kilograms), Saatva will send movers to help you with one-time “courtesy” switch.
What we don’t like:Although the Zenhaven has more supple and soft feel than other online all-latex mattresses, it’s still less luxurious-feeling as comparable innersprings and traditional foam mattress due to the fact that it’s not traditionally “fluffy.” The mere 2 (of 29) staffers who liked it better than the other models in our 2020 study of the hybrid and foam mattresses stated that they enjoyed that it was supportive, and they thought it would last a long 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.)
Because the Zenhaven is extremely heavy and two-sided, it needs to rest on a sturdy, good-quality platform bed or a frame and boxspring that are in good shape. Saatva sells the Boxspring Foundation (which comes in two sizes) and a frame made of metal.
Zenhaven top review of owner feedback
We were able to locate only 18 high-quality owner reviews for the Zenhaven. This is a small sample size to provide any definitive, non-subjective conclusion in addition to excellent customer service. However, we did find one particularly insightful post by a longer-term owner who was not sure of his weight (though the owner did state that he was 6 feet 4 inches tall).
He stated that, after a year and an half, he was impressed by its cushion and strength however, as he hadn’t been turning the mattress around, there was a hip impression and when he began rotating the mattress once every six months, he said the impression disappeared. We’ll update this page after we’ve gathered more high-quality reviews. Saatva Mattress Rotate
Saatva Latex Hybrid
Who it’s for:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is most suited to those who prefer durability over extravagantness. It’s ideal for back and stomach sleepers, and for those who toss and turn frequently. It’s designed to last for most people, not just those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
What it feels like:This 13-inch latex-and-coil hybrid is at the soft end of medium-firm. It feels distinctly buoyant, a touch bouncy, with some cushioning and the feeling of being cradled. It’s definitely not plush but you’ll sleep better on the mattress than in it.
What we love:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is constructed with high-quality materials and techniques for construction. The quilted top, constructed from cotton as well as wool (a natural fire retardant) is hand-tufted to the layers beneath it. Tufting (commonly seen on upholstery or traditional-style mattress innersprings) is a form of stitching with a heavy-duty structure which holds the layers together and has more durability than glue and also avoids the chemical smell of adhesives. Its peaks as well as valleys made by tufting could help limit any obvious body impressions, and more so than the sock-covered, smooth-topped mattresses that you usually see in hybrids sold online.
Although most hybrids use a layer of polyurethane foam over coils, Saatva’s Saatva Latex Hybrid uses 3 inches of Talalay latex foam (which is ample, compared with the pricey Casper Wave, which uses only half the amount). Latex is naturally more breathable and durable than polyurethane or memory foams. Talalay latex, which is also used in Zenhaven model, is a much more breathable and supple-feeling foam in comparison to the Dunlop varieties that are typically found in lower-priced mattresses made of latex.
Wirecutter’s supervisory Editor Wendy Schley tested the Saatva Latex Hybrid for a few months in her home. She found it strong and supportive. “It is almost buoyant,” she said. “There’s some cushioning but it’s not luxurious in a soft way.” Wendy found that the mattress was bouncy springy feeling that reminded her of an innerspring. She did not feel stuck, but the latex foam offered some motion-simplification. The edge support is superb thanks to the thick (13 3/4 -gauge) 8-inch coils around the edge.
Due to its breathable material (the Talalay latex, cotton cover and wool layer on the top) and the coils in the middle, the Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all-foam mattresses and hybrids made of polyfoams. Wendy who is known to be hot at night, found the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be significantly cooler than other mattresses, though we haven’t yet tested it during summer.
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 in a single piece but there’s still a hint of motion transfer due to, well, coils. It’s not as noticeable as movement transfer that’s present on Saatva Classic, 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 the other hybrid mattresses, the the Tempur-Adapt or the Leesa Hybrid, with around 1,000). If a mattress is made up of fewer coils, this can mean the mattress will not conform as well in your shape. However, the supple feel of the latex layer more than makes the up.
As Wendy has experienced, as Wendy experienced, the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an an ahhh sort of mattress. It’s as if it’s lifting you up instead of snuggling you down. It may not offer enough cushioning to give sufficient pressure relief for side sleepers or back sleepers who require additional cushioning on particular joints.
Wendy that sleeps side and back and has reported that she’s awakened with soreness in her lower back and shoulders 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 firmness levels, including ones that feel softer than the Saatva Latex).
The Latex Hybrid’s tufting is topped with attractive yarn tassels. They are pretty, but they appear to be flimsy, and One of the yarn tassels on the mattress Wendy tested unraveled after a few weeks. Saatva Mattress Rotate
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
The Saatva Solaire can be described as an adjustable-air mattress, made of foam on top of air chambers which can be programmed to your preferred firmness level with an electronic remote. We haven’t yet tried the Solaire yet however, we’ll update this article when we do. In the meantime, we’ll talk about what we do know.
Saatva has introduced Solaire in the year 2019 to be able to compete with Sleep Number’s premium i8 mattress. Along with air chambers and remotes, the Solaire is equipped with a pillow top, a Talalay the layer of latex, as well as a gel-infused memory-foam layer. It’s also priced at $650 less than the Sleep Number i8.
The remote has 50 settings, compared with Sleep Number’s 20, but in reality, we’re not sure if anyone really needs this many. At a glance, the comfort components look like they’d provide a more-curve-conforming cradle than Sleep Number’s polyurethane foam layers.
But, of course it’s impossible to know what we’re getting until we lay upon the bed. Solaire’s Talalay latex material suggests longevity, but because Sleep Number doesn’t provide any information about its foam materials, 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 or something in between, you can order this Solaire with any dimension you want as an ordinary model. If you prefer a queen or a king and want to upgrade, you can choose the Upper-Flex queen or King, or split king. All of them feature dual air chambers so sleep partners can pick their own level of firmness.
The standard model can be used on all bed frames (including bases that can be adjusted). But the Upper-Flex queen and King and split king options are designed to work specifically on adjustable bases that permit the two sides to adjust separately.
The Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, which include those with 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 shoulders and heads separately (for example, one person can sleep on a flat bed while the other sits up and reads the book).
The Upper-Flex designed specifically for the split king Solaire also allows both individuals to raise their lower bodies separately. We didn’t have enough top-quality user reviews to put on this list however we’ll be updating this guide once we’re able to try the bed out ourselves and gather more reviews. Saatva Mattress Rotate
Similar to Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf the Saatva HD has a pillowy, quilted top layer, however, the thick coils and foam underneath are said to support heavier weights.We’re particularly curious about the HD’s pillow top, because experts told us that for people who weigh more, pillow tops 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). What’s more is that the HD’s 12 1/2 -gauge coils are more dense than those in the company’s other models and the coils in rival models including Big Fig. Big Fig.
However, these aren’t the only criteria that affect a mattress’s durability and, by itself, doesn’t make for an appealing mattress. We’ll be looking into these issues further in an forthcoming guide to mattresses that are suitable for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly recommends” to place the mattress on a solid platform bed with vertical center support.
Otherwise, representatives told us that you should buy the HD together with its unique “high endurance” timber-slat-based foundation.Again, we spotted very few user reviews that were positive. When we’ve collected enough information to glean any trends and try the mattress out, we’ll send an update. Saatva Mattress Rotate
The Saatva Youth, the company’s relatively new coil-and-foam bed for kids costs more than mattresses designed for adults. But it’s dual-sided, with the coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam, so the mattress can grow along with a kid.
Its first layer is designed for kids ages 3 through 7, and it consists of polyfoam that is zoned, with densities that range from 1.4 up to 1.8 pounds per cubic foot.
On the second side, intended for older kids (the company says ages 8 through 12) the density of foam can be as high as 1.5 tons per cubic feet, and is slightly more softer due to it being paired with the firmer side of the coil unit. The 13 3/4 -gauge coils vary from 330 in a twin to 350 when a twin is XL, and 462 for a full.
The Saatva Youth is 10 inches thick and bunk-bed-friendly-as long as the bed’s guardrail is at least 5 inches higher than the mattress, for safety reasons. People who prefer natural materials will appreciate the fact that the mattress is covered in a quilted, thick organic-cotton covers and utilizes thistle pulp (as instead of chemical sprays or fiberglass) to act as a flame-resistant. We haven’t tried the mattress, nor have we spotted any reviews online. We’re hoping to evaluate it in the future for a guide on mattresses for children.
The Saatva Youth is the company’s new coil-and-foam bed for kids is priced higher than mattresses designed for adults. However, it is double-sided, featuring a coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam, so the mattress can expand with the child.
Its first layer is designed for children aged 3 to 7, and it is made up of polyfoam zones with density ranging between 1.4 up to 1.8 tons per square foot.
On the second side, meant for children older than (the company says ages 8 through 12), the foam density is 1.5 grams per cubic foot, and is slightly more softer due to it being paired with the more solid side of the coil unit. The 13 3/4 gauge coils vary from 330 in a twin to 350 for a twin-XL and 462 in the full.
