In the crowded field of mattresses sold online, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. Saatva ships its mattresses via trucks, not in a box. And even though, like other online sellers, it has rapidly increased its inventory, Saatva remains focused on a range of “luxury” designs, all priced in the range of the Youth model, which is more than $1,500 (for a queen). Saatva Minori
Sure, there’s a collection of mattresses that are more luxurious than Saatva’s. They have greater coil counts and more refined materials.
However, we consider Saatva’s mattresses to be among the most beautiful and thoughtfully designed options available from an online company.
In the last two years, we’ve gathered to test our Innerspring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom and Leaf, as well as the all-latex Zenhaven, and they’ve consistently earned a spot as one of our top choices in our reviews of the best foam mattresses as well as the best innerspring mattresses.
We’ve also experienced sleeping on Saatva’s Saatva Latex Hybrid as well as researched the design and construction of the other beds from Saatva’s line-up.The majority of mattresses sold online are either hybrids or foams therefore this Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the few innerspring mattresses that you can buy on the internet.
Pocketed coils provide the Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top, and a cushioned top provides a feeling of softness. As with all of the Saatva Company’s mattresses, the Saatva Classic is delivered by the movers rather than the form of a box. Saatva also offers the option of a 180-day trial and simple returns.
It’s all foam. Loom & Leaf is made with denser memory foam than other mattresses under $1,000, making it less likely to shift over time. This is why it’s more suitable for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
The quilted and thick cover is more cushier, and more robust than the sock-like covers of most foam mattresses and that cover makes the memory-foam layer underneath feel less as squishy.
Just like you’d expect with memory foam beds, the Loom & Leaf limits motion better as compared to the innerspring Saatva Classic.All-foam Zenhaven comprises primarily of latex. Particularly Talalay latex, which is made from the rubber tree plant’s milky sap. It is incredibly durable. Talalay is more flexible than Dunlop latex and is usually found in the less expensive latex mattresses we’ve tested.
Zenhaven is a good choice. Zenhaven can also be flipped (the Luxury Plush side feels medium-firm, while it’s Gentle Firm side feels a slightly firmer) It could prove helpful if you’re not sure which one you prefer, or if your needs change over time.
It’s not a typical cushiony mattress, however it has a soft cushion, good edge support, and a slight springiness.
Due to its inherent quality and its suppleness, the Zenhaven should work well for people who weigh greater than 200 pounds. Saatva Minori
Making sense of Saatva
Saatva’s portfolio of beds-many with a choice of firmness levels and catering to almost every comfort preference-includes:
- Saatva Classic (innerspring)
- Loom & Leaf (all foam)
- Zenhaven (all latex)
- Saatva Latex Hybrid (latex with coils)
- Solaire (a mattress with air chambers that can be adjusted)
- Saatva HD (a hybrid made of latex and coil that is specifically designed for those who weigh between 300-500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil hybrid for children ages 3-12)
We haven’t done an in-depth analysis of the “natural” claims of Saatva or others “eco-friendly” companies.
However, we know that the company makes use of organic wool or thistle pulp as a fire retardant (as opposed to chemicals or fiberglass) as well as only natural cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its covers.
As do other mattress brands online, Saatva touts such extras as zones for “optimal spinal support”; we’re less satisfied with these features, but we’re more impressed by Saatva’s customer service that is responsive and durable foams and coils. Saatva Minori
Saatva Video Review
Who it’s for:The Saatva Classic will likely appeal to those who prefer a cushy (but not overly big and bulky) top layer as well as 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-, sideand stomach sleepers. The more softer Plush Soft version is geared to side-sleepers and the Firm versioncaters 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 soft to the touch, and has good cushioning and bounce. It starts out with the feel of a firm, square shape, but it softens slightly after a period of break-in time of about a month.
We like:The Saatva Classic is one of the very few innerspring mattresses that you can purchase online without the ease that is often associated with purchasing a boxed foam mattress. It contains 416 thick, solid coils at its base, for support, as well as 884 individual, more flexible coils that are stacked over top to provide pressure relief. There’s a small amount of memory foam included in the mix, however the actual cushioning comes from an inch of polyfoam-and-fiber Euro top (an additional layer of cushion sewn under the top layer). The resultant feel is broad in appeal: it’s a bit bouncy, resilient, and supportive with a softness that doesn’t feel overwhelmingly billowy.
We tried the 14 1/2-inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm in a 2021 group test for mattresses with innersprings (it’s offered in 11 inches) It was the top choice, with the second highest number of top-pick votes (nine from 39 testers) in the category of $1,000 to $2,000 (which included the Avocado, the Parachute, and the first-place WinkBed). Five of those nine testers were awestruck by the Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses tested in the test and included those that cost twice as expensive; two of the nine testers chose 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 each night. I’m not a fan of a bulky bed, so I appreciated that the Classic’s Euro top offered what felt to me like the right amount of cuddling. The bed has some bounce, but not so much that my husband’s rolling over awakened me. To me, the feeling of buoyancy was worth the price in motion isolation.
It’s priced at around $1,600 when not on sale (though it is often) The Saatva Classic is the least expensive innerspring mattress we’ve tried that feels substantial and has a touch of luxury. It also has the advantage 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 position you sleep in. Unlike the more-billowy WinkBed, another pick in the innerspring mattress guide, the Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by movers (so that the “new mattresses smell” is already gone from the factory and during transport) Also, this “white glove” delivery service is free. The company offers a generous 180-day trial period, along with an extended warranty of 15 years.
The things we do not like: If you’re not a fan of a bouncy mattress, or you’re sensitive to your sleeping partner’s movements while in bed You probably won’t enjoy the Saatva Classic. While the top coils are individually wrapped, the bottom ones aren’t, which means that the mattress has a bit more motion transfer than our other innerspring picks, such as the WinkBed. If you’re not keen on any kind of bounce, you’re better off with Saatva’s Loom & Leaf.
The Saatva Classic also requires a bit of break-in time. When we first test the mattress in the year 2018 it was medium-firm. a year and a two-thirds of a year later, we noticed that it had softened a small amount, but in a pleasant way (at least for me). It’s not an “Soft” mattress, however; those who prefer that might want to try this Plush Soft version, which we haven’t tested yet.
The company boasts of the “active Lumbar Zone” technology for “additional back support,” our husband (who weighs just under 200 pounds) was still in search of more support in the Luxury Firm. He may have seen this in the firm version but we haven’t had the chance to test it yet, so we can’t confirm it. In general, we are not overly impressed with zoned technology, because people are of various sizes and shapes and they might sprawl in a manner that doesn’t coincide with the patterns of zoning.
The foam densities in the Saatva Classic are less than those of the Loom & Leaf which is the company’s foam-mattress offering. Although company representatives wouldn’t divulge details, we were informed that memory foam weighs at minimum 3 pounds per cubic foot, and the density of polyfoam is 1 1/2 pounds per cubic foot.
They’re not as impressive as those of the Loom & Leaf, but these are the norm of an innerspring bed, especially one in this price category. Contrary to foam mattresses these mattresses’ steel coils offer an additional level of support, and the quilting can help reduce body impressions.
But as 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 sleeper’s size and shape. Like all Europillows, or mattresses with a pillow top the heavier you are the higher the chance of experiencing sagging and impressions as time passes.
Therefore, you should rotate your mattress at least once every six months. You should also sleep on top of your bed.
Saatva Classic top owner-review feedback
We found only 39 owner reviews that are of high-quality (those that weren’t fake or vague and were written recently, between 2019 , and in 2020). Although the sample size is relatively small, we think it’s worth noting that almost 30% of the positive reviews praised Saatva’s customer support. This is more than what we’ve seen from other online mattress businesses.
We also observed that six reviewers had mentioned sagging as an issue; one of these reviewers had a weight of more than 200 pounds, and the rest either weighed less than that or didn’t mention. The majority of them had been using the mattress for more than a year at the time they wrote their reviews. This indicates that turning the mattress is crucial for heavier individuals who prefer innersprings may want to consider the option of a mattress made from more durable latex foam like that of the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Saatva Minori
Saatva Loom & Leaf
What it’s designed for: All-foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who prefer a memory foam that holds instead of encasing them in a tense, sluggish hug. The soft Relaxed Firm model may be best for side-sleepers. This version, called Firm is designed for back- or stomach-sleepers. People who weigh more than 200 pounds might also find the Firm to be more comfortable than the Relaxed Firm.
What it feels like:The Relaxed Firm is a mattress with a moderate firmness that holds you without pulling you in; it’s the firm (which we’ve tested only in a showroom) is much firmer.
We like: The 12-inch thick Loom & Leaf comes with a sturdy, quilted cover similar to that you’d find on a high-quality innerspring mattress (by contrast, many memory foam mattresses come with flimsier, sock-like covers). This cover comes with its own foam padding that adds an additional dimension to the usually single-note squishiness that is common to memory-foam mattresses. I slept on the Relaxed Firm at home for over a week, and I enjoyed the fact that it was soft and substantial at the same time. Our husband who prefers mattresses that are firm and weighs just 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. Based on these specs, we think this mattress is less likely to sag or develop body indents than cheaper foam mattresses, even for those who weigh more than 200 pounds (though it may not be suitable in the case of those that weigh greater than 250 pounds; check owner-review feedback, below). As with every foam mattress also provides excellent motion isolation.
In 2020, we compared our Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses, which cost more than $1,000) and found that 20 of the 29 respondents prefer to the Loom & Leaf. “It felt softer” was a common motive; however, some said it was less “cushioned.” In the event that we examined it against it against the Casper Wave in 2019 the results were less unified (18 for the Wave; sixteen for it; 16 for the Loom & Leaf). The people who chose more of the Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more conforming” feel or liked the quilting’s texture; those who chose to go with the Casper Wave described the Wave as having more support , and it was more supportive. Loom & Leaf as making them feel more “stuck.”
We also appreciate that the Loom & Leaf, like all of the Saatva Company’s mattresses, is delivered without boxes, by movers. That means you don’t have to let it air out, like numerous mattresses in boxes; the majority off-gassing is likely to have already occurred at the factory.
What we don’t like: We wish Saatva could provide a level of firmness between Relaxed Firm and Firm-the two levels are at a minimum, a few degrees from each other. And although it is true that the Loom & Leaf has better edge support than some of the more well-known online models (such such as Leesa as well as the Casper), it’s not as robust as a hybrid (like the Leesa Hybrid or the Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom & Leave’s cooler gel, as well as its pin core (punctured) design that is featured in the top layer, I was able to sleep quite warm on the mattress, which was surprising considering that I’m usually cold. But given that it was mid-winter of the winter season, I don’t feel any of it. The tiny holes designed to cool the foam could compromise the longevity that the foam has, but probably only slightly. Because this Loom & Leaf has a top-layer memory-foam density of 4 grams per cubic foot it should still prove more durable than your typical $1000 or less online foam mattress.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We have only found 16 high-quality, recent reviewers of the Loom & Leaf. Just as with similar to the Saatva Classic, the quality of customer service has stood out from the positive reviews. In the years 2019 and 2020, more reviewers have described the Loom & Leaf as “too firm” rather than “too soft.” However it’s difficult to draw conclusions about its texture. Many reviewers didn’t mention whether they’d ordered either the Relaxed Firm or the Firm.
We also observed that heavier reviewers tend to refer to their experience with the Loom & Leaf as too soft, or even too saggy. For instance, we found complaints on Reddit about this Relaxed Firm version not being firm enough for those who weigh around 250 pounds. If this is your case, look into to go with the Firm version (though it’s very stiff) or alternatively, the Tempur-Adapt (which also has dense foam, but it has a more distinct memory-foam hug). If you weigh over 200 pounds, it’s time to consider the Zenhaven that is made of more durable latex foam. Saatva Minori
We recommend it? Yes.
Who is it intended for The latex-foam Zenhaven is a good choice for people sleeping in all positions, particularly those who want a firm cushion, but without that “sunk-in” sensation. It’s also good for those of all weights and sizes, including those who weigh over 200 pounds.
The way it feels The foam mattress can be flipped and comes with handles to help you easily pick between two options that are: The Luxury Plush Side is on the soft side of the medium-firm range, and is ideal for those who sleep on their sides. Its Gentle Firm side offers a slightly more firmer feeling (the company claims that it’s 20 percent firmer, which is what we think it is).
We like this: Zenhaven Zenhaven is made up of two latex layers (one that is zoned for pressure points and lower back support, though this may or may not be helpful in the light of your weight and the position you sleep on the bed). Latex is a foam made from the milky sap of the rubber tree plant, and it is much better than polyurethane or memory foam, and so we think that this mattress is more sturdy for people who weigh over 200 pounds.
We love this mattress because the Zenhaven is constructed specifically from Talalay latex, which feels more soft than Dunlop latex commonly found in less expensive, stiffer latex mattresses, such as the Sleep on Latex Pure Green. Both the luxurious Plush and Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven are incredibly soft and springy, but not elastic. The whole bed is also more breathable than beds made mostly with Dunlop latex.
I slept upon the Zenhaven for a few months. Personally, I prefer a more pillowy feel (like those of Saatva Classic) However, the Luxury Plush side of the Zenhaven was becoming more appealing to me. After using it for a few weeks, I began to appreciate its supple, slightly springy surface and the cushioned cradle.
My son, who is 10, enjoys climbing on it and the Zenhaven’s motion aversion does not stop me from being a bit uncomfortable about it. But it’s good enough that I don’t feel the need to notice my husband’s movements at night. Edge support on the Zenhaven is slightly superior to that of many foam mattresses, such as the Loom & Leaf.
The husband of my friend, who weighs barely 200 pounds and sleeps on his back, finds that the Zenhaven as more substantive and appealing than the memory-foam Loom & Leaf the Relaxed firm or it’s Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is delivered by movers, not shipped in a box, so there’s less chance to emit that fresh-mattress smell to your home. It’s possible to switch between the soft luxury Plush side as well as Gentle Firm side Gentle Firm side as your preferences and preferences change, or you don’t know which level you’d like. Since the mattress is very heavy (the queen weighs at 125 kilograms), Saatva will send movers to help you with one-time “courtesy” flip.
What we don’t like:Although the Zenhaven has a more-supple feel than many other mattresses that are all-latex online but it’s less luxurious than similarly priced innersprings as well as traditional foam mattresses because it’s not conventionally “fluffy.” It was the only two (of 29) staff members who enjoyed it more than any other model in our 2020 test of mattress hybrids and foam said they were pleased the fact that it was supportive and they thought it would last for a long period of 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 and two-sided, it must be placed on a sturdy, good-quality platform bed or boxspring and frame in good condition. Saatva offers the frame with a boxspring (which is available in two heights) and a frame made of metal.
Zenhaven top review of owner feedback
We could find only 18 high-quality owner reviews for the Zenhaven-too small a sample size to offer any conclusive, objective, and non-subjective information in addition to excellent customer service. We did however find a particularly descriptive blog post from a long-term owner with no weight (though he did claim that he was 6 feet 4 inches in height).
He claimed that, after a year and an half, he loved its cushion and durability however, as he hadn’t been turning the mattress around, there was a hip impression after which, when he started turning the mattress every six months, he said the impression disappeared. We’ll update this section after we’ve gathered more high-quality reviews. Saatva Minori
Saatva Latex Hybrid
What it’s designed intended forThe Saatva Latex Hybrid is ideal to those who prefer durability over extravagantness. It’s ideal for back and stomach sleepers and those who toss and turn frequently. It should hold up well for the majority of people, even those who weigh over 200 pounds.
How it feels:This 13-inch hybrid of latex and coil 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 certainly not luxurious but you’ll sleep better in the mattress than in it.
What we love:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is constructed with high-quality materials and construction methods. The quilted surface, made out of cotton, and wool (a natural flame retardant), is hand-tufted to the layers below it. Tufting (commonly seen on upholstery or traditional in-sofa mattresses) is a kind of strong stitching that binds the layers and has more durability than glue, and eliminates the chemical smell that is often associated with adhesives. The peaks and valleys produced by tufting can help limit any obvious body impressions, more so than the sock-covered and smooth-topped mattresses you typically see on hybrids that are sold online.
While most hybrids put a 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 half as much). Latex is inherently more breathable and durable than polyurethane or memory foams. Talalay latex, utilized in the Zenhaven, is a more breathable and soft-feeling foam than the Dunlop type that is commonly found in low-cost latex mattresses.
Wirecutter’s supervising editor Wendy Schley tested the Saatva Latex Hybrid for several months at home. She found it extremely supportive and durable. “It feels almost buoyant,” she said. “There’s some cushioning to it, but it’s not luxurious in a plush way.” Wendy found that the mattress had a bouncy, springy feel reminiscent of a traditional innerspring-she did not feel stuck, but the latex foam offered some motion-simplification. The edge support is superb, due to thick (13 3/4 -gauge) 8-inch coils around the perimeter.
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 or hybrids made of polyfoams. Wendy, who tends to have hot sleep, discovered the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be significantly cooler than other mattresses, though we haven’t tested it in the summertime.
We haven’t seen enough quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to identify any trends, however, we’ll update when we do.
What we don’t like: Though the coils are wrapped in a single piece but there’s still a hint of motion transfer because, well, coils. It’s not as noticeable as motion transfer on the Saatva Classic, however, it’s more noticeable than on all-foam options like those from the Loom & Leaf or Zenhaven.
A queen-size Latex Hybrid contains 789 coils (fewer than in our favorite hybrid mattresses, such as the The Tempur-Adapt and the Leesa Hybrid, that have more than 1,000). When a mattress has fewer coils, it sometimes means it won’t be able to adjust to your body. However, the supple feel of the latex layer makes the up.
As Wendy discovered her experience, as Wendy experienced, the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an Ahhh type of mattress. It’s as if it’s lifting you up, instead of snuggling you down. And it may not provide enough cushioning to provide enough pressure relief to side sleepers as well as back-sleepers who need extra cushioning on certain joints.
Wendy, who sleeps on her back and side and reported that she occasionally woke up with soreness in her shoulders and lower back when she slept on Saatva Latex Hybrid. If you’re looking to get something more plush, you may want to consider the Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf (both come in different degrees of firmness, including those that feel softer than the Saatva Latex).
The tufting on the Latex Hybrid is topped with attractive yarn tassels. They are pretty, but they are reportedly flimsy attached as one of the tassels that were on the mattress Wendy was testing unraveled after just some time. Saatva Minori
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
The Saatva Solaire can be described as an adjustable-air mattress, made of foam placed on top of air chambers, which can be programmed to the firmness you want with an electronic remote. We haven’t yet tried the Solaire yet however, we’ll update this guide once we’ve had the chance to. We’ll talk about the information we have.
Saatva launched the Solaire in the year 2019 to rival the Sleep Number’s top-of-the-line i8 bed. Apart from air chambers and an integrated remote and a remote, the Solaire comes with the option of a pillow top, Talalay Latex Layer, and the gel-infused memory foam layer. It’s also cheaper by $650 than the Sleep Number i8.
It has 50 different settings as opposed to Sleep Number’s 20 settings, but in reality, we’re not sure if people even 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, as always we won’t be able to tell for sure until we lie down in the bed. Solaire’s Talalay latex materials suggest longevity However, because Sleep Number doesn’t provide any details about the foam components, we can’t declare that one mattress will last longer than the others.
No matter if you want a twin or a king size, or something else, you can order this Solaire at any length, as a standard model. If you decide to go with the queen or King or split king, you can upgrade to the Upper-Flex queen, king, or split king. All of them feature dual air chambers which means that sleepers can choose the firmness level they prefer.
The standard model can be used on all bed frames (including bases that can be adjusted). However, the Upper-Flex queen, king and the split-king models are made to be specifically compatible with adjustable bases that permit each side to adjust independently.
Saatva Company offers adjustable frames. Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, such as those with the Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Upper-Flex. With the frame’s upper-flex, couples can utilize a remote to position their heads and shoulders individually (for instance, one person can lay flat and sleep while the other sits up and reads the book).
The Upper-Flex designed to fit the split-king Solaire also allows both individuals to raise their lower bodies separately. We didn’t have enough top-quality owner reviews to include here, but we’ll update this guide when we’re in a position to test the bed for ourselves and gather more reviews. Saatva Minori
In May 2019, Saatva introduced the Saatva HD Hybrid Mattress designed for people who weigh between 300 and 500 pounds. We haven’t tried this mattress , yet. However, we plan to test it in the near future.
Similar to the Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf, the Saatva HD has a pillowy, quilted top layer, however, the thick layer of foam underneath and coils appear to be able to hold heavier weights.We’re particularly interested in the HD’s pillow top, as experts informed us that for people who weigh more, pillow tops could be especially susceptible to indentation.
The HD’s other components, however, seem promising as far as durability is concerned: There is a latex layer, which is typically stronger than memory foam, as well as a memory-foam layer, which has a density of 5 pounds per cubic foot (more than the 4-pounds-per-cubic-foot minimum that experts typically recommend for people who weigh over 200 pounds). Furthermore is that the HD’s 12 1/2 gauge coils are more dense than those found in the company’s other models and those of its rivals including Big Fig. Big Fig.
But these aren’t necessarily the only things that impact a mattress’s durability, and durability alone doesn’t make for an appealing mattress. We’ll explore these issues further in an forthcoming guide to mattresses for people who weigh more than 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly recommends” that you place this mattress on a sturdy platform bed that has vertical center support.
If not, they advised us that you should buy the HD together with its unique “high durability” timber-slat-based foundation.Also, we found a few helpful user reviews. When we’ve collected enough information to glean any trends and are able to test the mattress, we’ll send an update. Saatva Minori
The Saatva Youth The company’s innovative coil-and-foam mattress for children is more expensive than mattresses for grown-ups. However, it is dual-sided, with a coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam and a mattress that can expand with the child.
One side of the mattress is designed for kids ages 3 through 7 years old, and it is made up of polyfoam that is zoned, with densities ranging from 1.4 to 1.8 pounds per cubic foot.
On the second side, designed for kids older than that (the company says that the age range is 8-12), the foam density is 1.5 tons per cubic feet, and is slightly less spongy due to its pairing with the firmer side that’s part of the coil. The 13 3/4 -gauge coils vary from 330 in the size of a twin, up to 350 for a twin-XL, and 462 in the full.
The Saatva Youth is 10 inches thick and bunk-bed-friendly-as long as the bed’s guardrail is at least 5 inches higher than the mattress, for safety reasons. Those who prefer natural materials will appreciate that the mattress is encased in a thick, quilted organic cotton cover. It also uses thistle pulp (as instead of fiberglass or chemical sprays) as the fire retardant. We haven’t yet tested this mattress, nor have we spotted any reviews online. We’re hoping to evaluate it for a future guide on mattresses for children.
The Saatva Youth is the company’s new coil-and-foam bed for kids is priced higher than mattresses for grown-ups. However, it is double-sided, featuring a coil layer sandwiched between two foam layers which means that the mattress will expand with the child.
The first side is designed for children aged 3 to 7, and it is made up of polyfoam zones with densities ranging between 1.4 and 1.8 pounds per cubic foot.
On the other side, intended for older kids (the company claims ages 8 through 12), the foam density can be as high as 1.5 tons per cubic feet, and is slightly softer because it’s paired with the firmer side of the coil unit. The 13 3/4 -gauge coils vary from 330 in the size of a twin, up to 350 in a twin XL. They also go up to 462 in 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 that the mattress is covered in a quilted, thick organic-cotton covers and utilizes thistle pulp (as opposed to chemical sprays or fiberglass) as the fire retardant. We haven’t yet tried this mattress, nor have we spotted any reviews online.
But we hope to assess it in the future for a guide to kids’ mattresses. Saatva Minori
