In the crowded field of mattresses on the internet, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. Saatva ships its mattresses via truckinstead of a box. Even though, as with other online sellers, it has rapidly expanded its line, Saatva remains focused on offering a variety of “luxury” designs, all costing in the range of the Youth model, more than $1,500 (for one queen size). Saatva Memory Foam Mattress Reviews
Sure, there’s a whole collection of mattresses which are more luxurious than Saatva’s, featuring greater coil counts and more refined materials.
But we find Saatva’s mattresses one of the most stylish and thoughtfully designed choices available from an online company.
In the last 2 years we’ve gathered to test our Innerspring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom and Leaf, as well as the all-latex Zenhaven and have consistently placed as one of our top choices in our guide to the best foam mattresses as well as the best innerspring mattresses.
We’ve also used Saatva’s Saatva Mid-Latex Hybrid as well as researched the components and construction of the rest of the beds from Saatva’s line-up.The majority of mattresses sold online are hybrids or foams, which is why the Saatva Classic stands out. It’s among the few innerspring mattresses that you can buy online.
Pocketed coils provide the Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top. The cushioned top provides a feeling of softness. 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 the option of a 180-day trial and simple returns.
All-foam Loom & Leaf is made with denser memory foam than other mattresses under $1,000, making it less likely to sag in time. For that reason, it’s better for people who weigh greater than 200 pounds.
The thick, quilted cover is more cushier and robust than the sock-like covers on most foam mattresses, and that cover makes the memory foam underneath feel less soft and squishy.
As you’d expect with memory foam beds The Loom and Leaf reduces motion better than the innerspring Saatva Classic.Zenhaven is a 100% foam mattress. Zenhaven is made up mainly of latex, specifically Talalay latex. It is made of the rubber tree’s milky sap and is intrinsically durable. Talalay is more flexible than Dunlop latex, which is typically used in less expensive latex mattresses that we’ve tried.
Zenhaven is a good choice. Zenhaven is also flippable (the Luxury Plush side feels medium-firm, whereas it’s Gentle Firm side feels a little more firm) It could prove beneficial if you’re unsure which side you prefer or your preferences change over time.
It’s not a typical cushy mattress, but it provides a comfortable cushion, excellent edge support, as well as a slight springiness.
Because of its robustness it is recommended that the Zenhaven is a good choice for those who weigh over 200 pounds. Saatva Memory Foam Mattress Reviews
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 aged 3 to 12)
We haven’t done an exhaustive study of what we consider to be the “natural” claims of Saatva or of other “eco-friendly” brand names.
But we do know that the company makes use of thistle pulp or organic wool as a flame retardant (as opposed to chemicals or fiberglass) and only organic cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its mattress covers.
As do other online mattress manufacturers, Saatva touts such extras as zoned layers to provide “optimal spinal support” We’re not as impressed with those features but we’re more impressed by Saatva’s customer service that is responsive and durable foams and coils.

Saatva Video Review
Who is it for:The Saatva Classic will likely appeal to those who prefer a cushy (but not overwhelmingly big and bulky) top layer as well as a sturdy, resilient feel. The Luxury Firm variant (Saatva’s “Medium” product) that we tried, should suit people who are back-, sidestomach and side-sleepers. The softer Plush Soft version is targeted to side-sleepers, as does the Firm version to back- and stomach-sleepers.
What it feels like:We tested the Luxury Firm version of the Saatva Classic, the brand’s most sought-after model. We found it to be cushy on top, and with excellent support and bounce. It has an incredibly firm feel however, it begins to soften after a break-in period of a few months.
What we like:The Saatva Classic is one of the few innerspring mattresses that you can purchase online without the ease that is commonly associated with purchasing an inflatable foam mattress. It has 416 strong, sturdy coils at the base, for support, and 884 individually wrapped, more-pliable coils stacked on top, for pressure relief. There’s a slice of memory foam in the mix, though the cushioning is actually a 3-inch polyfoam-and-fiber Euro top (an additional layer of cushion sewn under the top). The resultant feel is broad in appeal, being supple, supportive, and with a softness that isn’t a hefty billowy sensation.
We test the 14 1/2 -inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm in a group test that included innersprings (it’s offered in 11 inches) and it racked up the second highest number of top-pick scores (nine from 39 participants) in the category of $1,000 to $2,000 (which comprised three other mattresses: the Avocado as well as the Parachute and the top-ranked WinkBed). Five of the nine test subjects were awestruck by the Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses in the test and included those that cost twice as much and two of the nine test participants chose it as their second favorite overall.
As for the home test I was looking forward to sleeping in this bed every night. I don’t like an overly billowy bed, so I liked that the Classic’s Euro top provided what seemed to me like the right amount of cuddle. The bed has some bounce but not so much that my husband’s tumbling over awakened me. To me, the feeling of buoyancy was worth the tradeoff in motion isolation.
At around $1,600 when 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 tried that feels substantial and luxurious. It also has the advantage the fact that you can pick from three different levels of firmness: Plush soft, luxury firm or Firm. This means you’ll find the right one regardless of which position you sleep in. Contrary to the more soft WinkBed which is another option in our innerspring mattress guide Saatva Classic is Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by moving companies (so the “new scent of the mattress” is already gone from 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 an extended warranty of 15 years.
We don’t likeabout: If you don’t like the bounce of a mattress, or if you’re insensitive to your partner’s movements while in bed it’s likely that you won’t be a fan of this mattress. Saatva Classic. Although those coils at the top have been individually wrapped the bottom coils aren’t, therefore, the bed offers some motion transfer than the other innerspring options, such as the WinkBed. If you’re not keen on any kind of bounce it’s better to go with Saatva’s Loom & Leaf.
It is worth noting that the Saatva Classic also requires a period of time to break in. When we first tried the mattress in 2018 it was medium-firm. one year and a half later, we noticed that it had softened a little however in a pleasing manner (at at least to me). This is not a “Soft” mattress but those who like that may want to try it out. Plush Soft version, which we haven’t yet tried.
The company boasts of the “active Lumbar Zone” technology for “additional back support” our husband (who weighs just under 200 pounds) still craved more support from the Luxury Firm. It could be that he seen it in the Firm version, but we haven’t had the chance to test it in the past, and so can’t confirm it. In general, we are not particularly impressed by zones, as people are of different sizes and heights, and they may spread in ways that don’t match the zoning patterns.
The foam densities of the Saatva Classic are less than those found in Loom & Leaf which is the company’s foam-mattress offering. Although company representatives wouldn’t divulge the details, we were told that memory foam is at least three pounds for each cubic foot, and the polyfoam density is 1 1/2 pounds per cubic foot.
These aren’t as high as those of the Loom & Leaf, but the specifications are standard in an innerspring mattress and and especially ones in this price range. Contrary to foam mattresses these mattresses’ steel coils offer an additional level of support, and the quilting can help reduce body impressions.
But as the following Reddit post suggests, certain sleepers have had better luck on Saatva mattresses. Saatva mattresses over the course of several years than others; we think this likely depends on the size and shape of the person sleeping on it. Like all Euro- or pillow-top mattresses, the more you weigh the greater chance of seeing sagging and imprints over time.
This is why you must rotate your mattress at least once every six months. You should also sleep over your mattress.
Saatva Classic top owner-review feedback
We found only 39 owner reviews that are of high-quality (those that didn’t seem untrue or unclear and were written recently, in 2019 and 2020). Although the sample size is rather small, it’s interesting that more than 30% of the favorable reviews praised Saatva’s customer support. This is more than what we’ve seen from other mattress brands online.
Also, six reviewers had mentioned sagging as the cause of their discomfort. One of these reviewers had a weight of more than 200 pounds and the other weighed less than that or didn’t mention. The majority of them had owned the mattress for over a year at the time the review was written. This suggests that rotating the mattress is essential and heavier individuals who enjoy innersprings may want to consider an innerspring mattress that is more durable latex foam like that of the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Saatva Memory Foam Mattress Reviews
Saatva Loom & Leaf
Who it’s for: This all foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who like a memory foam that holds instead of encasing them in a soft, slow hug. The softer Relaxed Firm version could be ideal for sleepers on the side. The Firm version is made to be used by stomach- or back-sleepers. People who weigh more than 200 pounds could consider the Firm to be more supportive over the Relaxed version.
How it feels:The Relaxed Firm is a medium-firm mattress that cradles without pulling you in; The Firm (which we’ve tested only in an actual showroom) is much more firm.
We like: The 12-inch-thick Loom & Leaf comes with a durable, quilted, and sturdy cover, similar to the one you’d get on a good innerspring mattress (by contrast, the majority of memory foam mattresses come with flimsier, sock-like covers). The cover is made of foam padding, which brings an additional dimension to the usually single-note squishiness that is common to memory-foam mattresses. I have slept on the Relaxed firm at home for over one week and loved that it was soft and sturdy in the same way. The husband of mine, who loves mattress that are firm, and weighs less than 200 pounds, which is 70 pounds more 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 think this mattress is less likely to sag or develop body indents as compared to cheaper foam mattresses, even for people who weigh over 200 pounds (though maybe not when you weigh over 250 pounds; see the owner review feedback below). Like any foam mattress, it also offers quality motion isolation.
The year 2020 was the first time we compared the Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses that cost over $1,000), and 20 of the 29 respondents prefer the Loom & Leaf. “It felt softer” was a popular explanation; some even described it as being better “cushioned.” When we tested against the Casper Wave in 2019, the results were split (18 in favor of the Wave sixteen for it; 16 for the Loom & Leaf). Those who opted for that Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more conforming” feel or liked the texture of its quilting and those who opted for 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 it that Loom & Leaf, like all Saatva Company’s mattresses is delivered unboxed, by the movers. That means you don’t have to air it out, like you do with numerous mattresses in boxes; the majority off-gassing will have been done at the manufacturing facility.
The thing we don’t like about HTML0: We wish Saatva had a firmness level that was between Relaxed Firm and Firm. two levels seem at a minimum, a few degrees between them. While Loom & Leaf Loom & Leaf has better edge support than some of the more popular online models (such as the Leesa or Casper) Casper), it isn’t as sturdy as the hybrid (like that of the Leesa Hybrid or the Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom and Leaf’s cooling gel and pin core (punctured) design, which is advertised on the top layer, I slept a bit warmer on this mattress which was a surprise since I’m always cold. But given that it was mid-winter in winter, I did not mind too much. The tiny holes made to cool the foam could compromise the durability of the foam, though likely only a little. Given that it is the Loom & Leaf has a top-layer memory-foam density of 4 grams per cubic foot it will still prove more durable than the typical foam mattress that costs less than $1,000.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We have only found 16 recent, high-quality reviewers of the Loom & Leaf. Just as with the Saatva Classic, the quality of customer service has stood out among the positive feedback. In 2019 , and in 2020 many reviewers said that their experience with the Loom & Leaf as “too firm” rather than “too too soft.” However it’s difficult to make a conclusion about its texture. A lot of reviewers did not specify if they had ordered one of the Relaxed Firm or Firm.
Also, we noticed that more seasoned reviewers often describe the Loom & Leaf as too soft or even too loose or even. For instance, we found reviews on Reddit concerning it being too soft or even saggy. Relaxed Firm version being sagging for those who weigh around 250 pounds; if this is your case, try using the Firm version (though it’s extremely firm) and alternatively, the The Tempur-Adapt (which also has dense foam but a more-distinct memory foam hug). If you weigh over 200 pounds, you should look into the Zenhaven, which is built with more durable latex foam. Saatva Memory Foam Mattress Reviews
Does it merit our recommendation? Yes.
Who’s it for: The latex-foam Zenhaven will suit those who sleep in any position, but especially those who like a supple cushion without that “sunk-in” feeling. It’s also good for those of all weights and sizes, including those who weigh over 200 pounds.
What it feels like: This mattress can be flipped, and it has handles that allow you to select between two choices that are: The Luxury Plush aspect 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 more firmer feeling (the company claims that it’s 20 percent firmer, which sounds right to us).
What we likeabout it: Zenhaven Zenhaven comprises of two latex layers (one of which is a zoned one for lower-back support and pressure points although this could not be useful in the light of your weight and the position you sleep on the mattress). Latex is a foam made from the milky sap the rubber tree and it is intrinsically stronger than polyurethane foam or memory foam, and so we think that this mattress is more sturdy for people who weigh more than 200 pounds.
We love that the Zenhaven is constructed specifically from Talalay latex, which feels more flexible than Dunlop latex typically found in less expensive, stiffer latex mattresses, like the Sleep on Latex Pure Green. The luxury Plush and Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven feel springy without being elastic. The bed as a whole is also more comfortable than mattresses made of Dunlop latex.
I lay upon the Zenhaven for a few 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 came to appreciate its supple smooth surface, with a slight springiness and cushioned cradle.
My 10-year-old son also likes jumping on it, and the Zenhaven’s motion isolation doesn’t prevent me from experiencing it. But it’s good enough that I’m not aware of my husband’s movements at night. Edge support on the Zenhaven is better than that of most foam mattresses, including on the Loom & Leaf.
Our husband who weighs barely 200 pounds and usually is a back sleeper, likes that the Zenhaven as more substantive and more appealing than the memory foam Loom & Leaf the Relaxed Soft or the Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is delivered by movers and not in a box, which means it’s less likely to emit that fresh-mattress smell to your home. You can choose between the 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. Due to the weight of the mattress (the queen weighs at 125 pounds), Saatva will send Movers to assist you with one-time “courtesy” flip.
What we don’t like:Although the Zenhaven has more supple and soft feel than other all-latex mattresses sold online but it’s less luxurious as comparable innersprings or traditional foam mattresses due to the fact that it’s not traditionally “fluffy.” The nil 2 (of 29) employees who were more satisfied than the other models in our 2020 test of mattress hybrids and foam stated that they enjoyed the fact that it was supportive and they thought 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.)
Since the Zenhaven is extremely heavy and has two sides and two-sided, it must be placed on a sturdy, good-quality platform bed or a frame and boxspring that are in good condition. Saatva sells the Boxspring Foundation (which comes in two heights) plus a metal frame.
Zenhaven top reviews of the owner
We were able to locate only 18 high-quality owner reviews for the Zenhaven-too small a sample to draw any definitive, non-subjective conclusion in addition to good customer service. However, we did discover an extremely descriptive post from a long-term owner of unknown weight (though the owner did state that his height was 6’4 inches tall).
He stated that after a year and an half, he appreciated its cushion and resilience, but because he hadn’t been rotating the mattressregularly, he noticed a hip impression after which, when he started turning the mattress once every six months, he claimed the imprint disappeared. We’ll update this page after we’ve gathered more high-quality reviews. Saatva Memory Foam Mattress Reviews
Saatva Latex Hybrid
What it’s designed intended forThe Saatva Latex Hybrid is best suited to those who prize the durability of their mattress over lavishness. It’s ideal for back and stomach sleepers and those who toss and turn frequently. It’s designed to last for most people, including those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
The way it feelsThis 13-inch latex and coil hybrid is at the soft end of medium-firm. It feels distinctly buoyant, somewhat bouncy and with some cushioning and the feeling of being cradled. It’s not a plush mattress, though, and you’ll sleep better the mattress the mattress than within it.
We like:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is constructed with high-quality materials and construction methods. The quilted top, constructed from cotton and a layer of wool (a natural fire retardant) is hand-tufted onto the layers below it. Tufting (commonly used on upholstery or traditional 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 that is often associated with adhesives. These peaks and valleys made by tufting could help limit any obvious body impressions, and more so than the smooth-topped, sock-covered mattresses that are typically seen in hybrids sold online.
While most hybrids put the polyurethane layer on top of coils this one Saatva Latex Hybrid uses 3 inches of Talalay latex foam (which is ample, compared with the pricey Casper Wave, which uses half as much). Latex is inherently more breathable and durable than memory foams, or polyurethane. Talalay latex, also used in Zenhaven, is a more breathable and soft-feeling foam in comparison to the Dunlop variety often found in low-cost latex mattresses.
Wirecutter’s supervising editor Wendy Schley tested the Saatva Latex Hybrid for several months in her home. She found it to be very supportive and sturdy. “It is like it’s floating,” she said. “There’s some cushioning to it but it’s not luxurious in a soft way.” Wendy found that the mattress had a bouncy, springy feel reminiscent of an innerspring. She never felt stuck in place-but the latex foam did provide some motion isolation. The edge support is superb due to the large (13 3/4 gauge) 8-inch coils along the edges.
Thanks to its breathable materials (the Talalay latex, cotton cover, and wool layer in the top) and coils that make up the Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all foam mattresses or hybrids that are made of polyfoams. Wendy who is known to be hot at night, found that the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be notably cooler than other mattresses, although we haven’t yet tested it during summer.
We haven’t spotted enough good-quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to glean any trends, but we’ll update as we find.
We don’t love: Though the coils are wrapped in a single piece but there’s still a hint of motion transfer, due to they’re coils. It’s not as noticeable as motion transfer on the Saatva Classic, but it’s more pronounced when compared to all-foam models like those from the Loom & Leaf or Zenhaven.
A queen-sized Latex Hybrid contains 789 coils (fewer than the other hybrid mattresses, such as the the Tempur-Adapt as well as the Leesa Hybrid, that have more than 1,000). When a mattress has fewer coils, this can mean the mattress won’t adjust to your body. But the firmness of the latex layer more than makes more up for it.
As Wendy discovered, it’s true that the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an Ahhh kind of mattress. It feels like it’s lifting you up, rather than nestling you in. It may not offer enough cushioning to give enough pressure relief to side sleepers or back sleepers who require extra cushioning for specific joints.
Wendy, who sleeps on her back and side, reported that she sometimes awakened with soreness in her lower back and shoulders when she slept on Saatva Latex Hybrid. If you’re looking for something a bit more luxurious, you might be interested in the Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf (both come in multiple degrees of firmness, including those which feel more soft than the Saatva Latex).
The tufting on the Latex Hybrid is finished with beautiful yarn tassels. They are pretty, but they appear to be flimsy as one of the tassels that were on the mattress Wendy was testing unraveled after just some time. Saatva Memory Foam Mattress Reviews
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
Saatva’s Solaire is an adjustable air bed made of foam placed on top of air chambers, which can be programmed to the level you prefer using the remote. We haven’t had the chance to test the Solaire yet however, we’ll update this guide when we do. In the meantime, we’ll be discussing what we do know.
Saatva introduced the Solaire in 2019 to rival Sleep Number’s high-end i8 bed. In addition to having air chambers and a 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 $650 cheaper over the Sleep Number’s i8.
The remote comes with 50 options in comparison to Sleep Number’s 20 settings, but in reality, we’re not sure if users really need that many. At a glance, the comfort components look like they’d provide a more-curve-conforming cradle than Sleep Number’s polyurethane foam layers.
But, as always we won’t be able to tell for sure until we lie down in the bed. The Solaire’s Talalay latex materials suggest longevity however, since Sleep Number does not provide details about the foam components, we can’t declare that one mattress is more durable than the other.
No matter if you want either a twin or a king size, or something else You can purchase Solaire Solaire in any size you want as the standard model. If you prefer the queen or king, you can upgrade to the Upper-Flex queen or the king, or the split king, all of which have 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). However, the Upper-Flex queen, King, as well as the split king options are designed to be specifically compatible with adjustable bases that permit both sides to be adjusted independently.
The Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, such as the Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Upper-Flex. The frame’s Upper-Flex feature allows couples can use a remote to position their shoulders and head separately (for instance, one person can lie flat to sleep while the other one sits and reads or reads a book).
The Upper-Flex frame that is designed for the split king Solaire also allows both individuals to raise their lower bodies independently. We couldn’t locate enough high-quality owner reviews to list here We’ll revise this guide when we’re able try the bed out ourselves and gather additional reviews. Saatva Memory Foam Mattress Reviews
Like the Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf the Saatva HD has a pillowy, quilted top layer, but the dense layer of foam underneath and coils are said to support more weight.We’re especially curious about the top of the pillow in the HD because experts told us that, for people who weigh more the top of pillows could be particularly prone to indentations.
The HD’s other components, however, seem promising as far as durability is concerned: There is a latex layer, which is typically stronger than memory foam, as well as a memory-foam layer, which has a density of 5 pounds per cubic foot (more than the 4-pounds-per-cubic-foot minimum that experts typically recommend for people who weigh over 200 pounds). Furthermore is that the HD’s 12 1/2-gauge coils are more robust than those found in the company’s other models and those of its rivals like Big Fig. Big Fig.
However, these aren’t the only factors that determine a mattress’s durability, and durability alone isn’t enough to make a good mattress. We’ll explore the issues in a upcoming guide to mattresses for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly strongly suggests” to place the mattress on a solid platform bed that has vertical center support.
In other words, Saatva representatives advised us that you must buy the HD along with its special “high durabil” wood-slat foundation.Also, we found a few positive reviews from users. Once we’ve gathered enough to discern any trends and for a mattress test, we’ll provide an update. Saatva Memory Foam Mattress Reviews
It’s called the Saatva Youth The company’s innovative coil-and-foam mattress for children costs more than mattresses for adults. But it’s double-sided, featuring the coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam and a mattress that can expand with the child.
The first side is intended for children aged 3 to 7, and it consists of zoned polyfoam , which has densities ranging from 1.4 and 1.8 pounds per cubic foot.
On the other side, meant for children older than (the company claims that the age range is 8-12) the density of foam can be as high as 1.5 tons per cubic feet. It’s also a bit softer because it’s paired with the firmer part in the coil. The 13 3/4 gauge coils range from 330 to 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 the fact that the mattress is covered in a quilted, thick organic-cotton covers and utilizes thistle pulp (as instead of fiberglass or chemical sprays) as the fire retardant. We haven’t yet tried this mattress and we haven’t seen any online reviews. We’re hoping to evaluate it in the future for a guide on mattresses for children.
It’s called the Saatva Youth, the company’s relatively new coil-and-foam bed for kids is more expensive than mattresses designed for adults. It is however dual-sided, with a coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam and a mattress that can expand with the child.
The first side is designed for children aged 3 to 7, and it consists of polyfoam that is zoned, with densities ranging between 1.4 to 1.8 tons per square foot.
On the other side, meant for children older than (the company says ages 8 through 12) the foam density can be as high as 1.5 tons per cubic feet and somewhat less softer since it’s coupled with the more solid side of the coil unit. The 13 3/4 gauge coils range from 330 in the size of a twin, up to 350 in a twin 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. Those who prefer natural materials will appreciate that the mattress is covered in a thick, quilted organic-cotton covers and utilizes thistle pulp (as instead of chemical sprays or fiberglass) as the flame retardant. We haven’t tried the mattress as we haven’t found any reviews online.
However, we’d like to test it for a possible guide to mattresses for kids. Saatva Memory Foam Mattress Reviews
