In the sea of mattresses on the internet, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. Saatva ships its mattresses via truck, instead of in boxes. And even though, like other online sellers the company has quickly expanded its line, Saatva remains focused on a range of “luxury” models that are all priced, with the exception of its Youth model, which is more than $1500 (for a queen). Saatva New York
There’s no doubt that there’s a galaxy of mattresses that are more lavish than Saatva’s, featuring higher coil counts and finer materials.
But we find Saatva’s mattresses to be among the most elegant-looking and well-designed options offered by an online retailer.
Over the past 2 years we’ve gathered to test Saatva’s insidespring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom & Leaf, and the all-latex Zenhaven, and they’ve consistently been among our top picks in our guides to the best foam mattresses and the best innerspring mattresses.
We’ve also used the Saatva Latex Hybrid and have studied the design and construction of the rest of the mattresses in the Saatva lineup.The majority of mattresses sold online are hybrids or foams, which is why it’s no surprise that the Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the very few innerspring mattresses that you can purchase on the internet.
Pocketed coils provide this Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top. A extra soft top makes it more comfortable. As with all of the Saatva Company’s mattresses that are available, the Saatva Classic is delivered by movers, rather than in the form of a box. Saatva also provides an extensive 180-day trial and simple returns.
All-foam Loom & Leaf is constructed with more dense memory foam than most mattresses under $1,000, making it less likely to sag over time. It’s better for people who weigh over 200 pounds.
The quilted, thick cover is more cushier, and more robust than the sock-like covers of most foam mattresses and the cover helps the memory-foam layer underneath feel less as squishy.
Like you would expect from an innerspring mattress, the Loom and Leaf reduces movement better that an innerspring Saatva Classic.All-foam Zenhaven is made up mainly of latex-specifically Talalay latex, which is made from the rubber tree plant’s milky sap. It is incredibly robust. Talalay is more flexible than Dunlop latex, which is typically used in less expensive latex mattresses we’ve tried.
The Zenhaven is also flippable (the Luxury Plush side feels medium-firm, while it’s Gentle Firm side feels a little more firm) This could be beneficial if you’re unsure which side you prefer or your preferences change over time.
It’s not a typical cushiony mattress, however it has a soft cushion, excellent edge support, and a subtle springiness.
Because of its quality it is recommended that the Zenhaven should work well for those who weigh greater than 200 pounds. Saatva New York
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 bed with adjustable air chambers)
- Saatva HD (a hybrid of latex and coils designed for sleepers who weigh between 300-500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil-based hybrid designed for children ages 3-12)
We haven’t yet done a deep dive into the “natural” claims of Saatva or of others “eco-friendly” brand names.
However, we know that the company makes use of organic wool or thistle pulp as a fire retardant (as as opposed to fiberglass or chemicals) with only organic cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its cover.
As do other online mattress companies, Saatva touts such extras as zones for “optimal spine support” but we’re not impressed with those features but we’re more impressed by Saatva’s customer service that is responsive and its durable coils and foams. Saatva New York
Saatva Video Review
Who is it intended forThe Saatva Classic will likely be a good fit for those who like a soft (but not overly big and bulky) top layer, and the feel of a solid, durable. This Luxury Firm model (Saatva’s “Medium” offer), which we tested, should suit people who are back-, sideand stomach sleepers. The soft Plush Soft version caters primarily to side-sleepers, and the Firm versioncaters for stomach- and back-sleepers.
The way it feels:We tested the Luxury Firm version of the Saatva Classic, the model with the most popularity-and discovered it to be soft on top, with good cushioning and bounce. It starts out with the feel of a firm, square shape, but it becomes softer after a period of break-in time of a few months.
What we like:The Saatva Classic is one of the very few innerspring mattresses that you can buy online with the ease more commonly associated with purchasing an inflatable foam mattress. It is made up of 416 robust coils in the base, for support, as well as 884 individual, more flexible coils on top to provide pressure relief. There’s a slice of memory foam in the mix, but the cushioning is actually an inch of polyfoam-and-fiber Euro top (an additional layer of cushion sewn underneath the surface). The resultant feel is broad in appeal-supportive, resilient, and with a softness that doesn’t feel bulky.
We tried the 14 1/2-inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm in a 2021 group test of mattresses with innersprings (it’s also available in 11 1/2 inches), and it captured the second highest number of top-pick scores (nine among 39 test participants) in the category of $1,000 to $2,000 (which includes three other mattresses: the Avocado as well as the Parachute and the top-ranked WinkBed). Five of those nine testers were awestruck by it more than the Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses tested in the test, including those that cost twice as much and two of the nine testers selected the Saatva Classic as their second-favorite overall.
As for the home test, I looked forward to sleeping in this bed every night. I’m not a fan overly billowy bed, so I was pleased its Euro top felt to me like just the right amount of cuddle. The bed does have some bounce but not so much that my husband’s roll woke me up-to me, the buoyed-up feel was worth the sacrifice in motion-isolation.
Around $1,600 if it’s not on sale (though it often is) The Saatva Classic is the least expensive innerspring mattress that we’ve tested that feels thick and luxurious. It also has the advantage the fact that you have the option of choosing from three firmness levels-Plush soft, luxury firm, or Firm. This means you’ll get a perfect fit regardless of which sleeping position you choose to sleep in. Unlike the more-billowy WinkBed which is another option in our innerspring mattress guide Saatva Classic is Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by moving companies (so that “new mattresses smell” has already disappeared in the factory and during transport) This “white glove” delivery service is completely free. Saatva offers a huge 180-day trial period as well as a 15-year warranty.
We don’t love: If you’re not fond of 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 all the coils on top are wrapped individually the bottom ones aren’t, therefore, the bed offers some motion transfer than the other innerspring options, such as the WinkBed. If you don’t like 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 bit of break-in time. When we first tried the mattress, in 2018, it felt medium-firm; after a year and half later, we found that it had softened a bit but in a nice way (at at least to me). It’s not a “Soft” mattress, however; those who prefer it might be interested in this Plush Soft version, which we haven’t tried yet.
Although the company touts an “active Lumbar Zone” technology for “additional back support,” my husband (who weighs in the vicinity of 200 pounds) was still in search of more support when he was in the Luxury Firm. It could be that he found that feature in the version for Firm but we haven’t tested the technology yet, so we aren’t able to know for sure. In general, we’re not awed by the zones because people come in different sizes and heights, and they might sprawl in ways that don’t conform to 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. While representatives from the company wouldn’t reveal details, we were informed the density of memory foam is at least three pounds for each cubic foot, and the polyfoam density equals 1 1/2 pounds of cubic feet.
They’re not as impressive as those of the Loom & Leaf, but these are the norm of an innerspring bed, and especially ones in this price range. In contrast to foam mattresses, these mattresses’ steel coils offer extra support and quilting could help prevent body impressions.
But as the following Reddit thread indicates, some sleepers have had more success with the Saatva mattresses over the course of several years than others; we believe this is based on the sleeper’s size and shape. Like all Euromattress – also known as a pillow-top mattress, the more you weigh the higher the chance of experiencing sagging and impressions over time.
This is why you must rotate your mattress diligently at least every six months. You should also sleep on top of your bed.
Saatva Classic top owner-review feedback
We could find only 39 owner reviews that are of high-quality (those that didn’t seem 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 favorable reviews praised Saatva’s service to customers. This is a higher percentage than what we’ve seen from other mattress brands online.
We also observed that six of the reviewers mentioned that sagging was the cause of their discomfort. One of them had a weight of more than 200 pounds, and the rest either had a lower weight or did not mention. The majority of them had owned the mattress for more than an entire year prior to the date the review was written. This indicates that turning the mattress is crucial; heavier people who like innersprings might want to look at a mattress with intrinsically more-durable latex foam like the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Saatva New York
Saatva Loom & Leaf
Who is it for: This all foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who like a memory foam that wraps around, as opposed to engulfing them in a soft, slow hug. The more relaxed version may be best for side-sleepers. The Firm version is intended for back- or stomach-sleepers. If you weigh over 200 pounds could consider the Firm to be more comfortable than the Relaxed Firm.
How it feels:The Relaxed Firm is a mattress with a moderate firmness that holds you without pulling you in; The Firm (which we’ve tried only in an actual showroom) is much firmer.
We like: The 12-inch-thick Loom & Leaf comes with a durable, quilted, and sturdy cover, similar to the one you’d find on an innerspring mattress (by comparison, most memory-foam mattresses have flimsier, sock-like covers). That cover contains its own foam padding, which adds an additional dimension to the usually one-note squishiness of cheaper memory-foam mattresses. I have slept on the Relaxed firm at home for more than a week, and I loved that it was soft and solid at the same time. The husband of mine, who likes mattress that are firm, and weighs under 200 pounds-70 pounds more than me-thought the mattress was too soft.
Whereas most online mattresses have a memory-foam density in the 3-pounds-per-cubic-foot range, the Loom & Leaf’s top layer has a 4-pounds-per-cubic-foot density with a gel-infused layer meant to assist with cooling (though cooling features like gel and perforations tend to have minimal impact). The mattress also has a 5-pounds-per-cubic-foot memory-foam layer underneath that top layer. With these specifications we believe that this mattress is less likely to slump or create body indentions as compared to cheaper foam mattresses, even for those who weigh more than 200 pounds (though perhaps not in the case of those that weigh more than 250 pounds; see owner-review feedback, below). Like any foam mattress, it also provides excellent motion isolation.
In 2020, we tested our Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses that cost over $1,000) The results showed that 20 out of 29 people prefer the Loom & Leaf. “It was more comfortable” was a common reason; a few claimed it was more “cushioned.” In the event that we examined in comparison to it against the Casper Wave in 2019 the results were less unified (18 to the Wave and sixteen for it; 16 for the Loom & Leaf). Those who opted for the Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more flexible” feel or appreciated the quilting’s texture while those who went with to go with the Casper Wave described the Wave as having more support , and that the Loom & Leaf as making them feel more “stuck.”
We also appreciate it that Loom & Leaf, like all Saatva Company’s mattresses is delivered in a box, and by movers. This means that you don’t need to air it out, like many boxed mattresses; most off-gassing is likely to have already occurred in the factory.
What we don’t like: We wish Saatva offered a firmness level between Relaxed Firm and Firm. two levels are to be at least a couple of degrees from each other. And although it is true that the Loom & Leaf has better edge support than other popular models on the internet (such such as Leesa or the Casper), it’s not as robust as a combination (like that of the Leesa Hybrid or the Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom & Leaf’s cooler gel, as well as its pin core (punctured) design, which is advertised in the top layer I did sleep a little warm on the mattress, which was surprising considering that I’m always cold. However, given that it was the middle of winter, I didn’t feel any of it. The tiny holes made to cool the foam could compromise the durability of the foam, however it’s likely to be only marginally. Given that this Loom & Leaf has a top layer of memory foam that weighs 4 tons per cubic foot it’s likely to remain more durable than your standard $1,000-or-less online foam mattress.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We found only 16 recently updated, top-quality reviewers of this model of the Loom & Leaf. Similar to similar to the Saatva Classic, good customer service stands out in the glowing reviews. In the years 2019 and 2020 many reviewers said that their experience with the Loom & Leaf as “too firm” as opposed to “too too soft.” But it’s difficult to draw conclusions about its feel. Many reviewers didn’t specify whether they’d purchased either the Relaxed Firm or Firm.
Also, we noticed that more seasoned reviewers often review their experience with the Loom & Leaf as too soft or even too saggy. We found reviews on Reddit regarding the Relaxed Firm version sagging for people who weigh between 250 pounds. If that is the case, then consider to go with the Firm version (though, again, it’s extremely firm) and alternatively, the the Tempur-Adapt (which also features dense foam, but with a distinct memory foam hug). If you weigh over 200 pounds, think about Zenhaven. Zenhaven Zenhaven, which is made of more durable latex foam. Saatva New York
We recommend it? Yes.
Who’s it to be used for The latex-foam Zenhaven will suit those that sleep at any angle, but especially those who like a supple cushion without that “sunk-in” sensation. It’s also suitable for people of all weights, including those who weigh over 200 pounds.
How it feels: This foam mattress can be flipped, and it has handles to help you easily pick between two options 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 says it’s about 20% firmer, and that is what we think it is).
What we likeabout it: The Zenhaven is made up of two layers of latex (one that is a zoned one for pressure points and lower-back support however this could or may not be helpful according to your body size and position on your mattress). Latex is a type of foam that comes by the milky sap of the rubber tree and it is intrinsically more durable than polyurethane or memory foam. Therefore, we think that this mattress is robust for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
We like this mattress because the Zenhaven is constructed specifically out of Talalay latex, which feels more flexible than Dunlop latex commonly found in stiffer, less expensive latex mattresses like the Sleep on Latex Pure Green. The Luxury Plush and Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven feel supple and not elastic. The bed as a whole is also more comfortable than beds that are mostly made from Dunlop latex.
I have slept in the Zenhaven for a few months. I personally prefer a more-pillowy feeling (like that of the Saatva Classic) however, the Luxury Plush part of the Zenhaven was becoming more appealing to me. After putting it to the test for a couple of weeks, I began to appreciate its soft, slightly springy surface and the cushioned cradle.
My son, who is 10, enjoys playing on it, and the Zenhaven’s motion isolation isn’t a barrier to me feeling that. However, it’s sufficient that I’m not aware of my husband’s movements in the evening. Its edge support can be superior to that of many foam mattresses, such as the Loom & Leaf.
Our husband who is less than 200 pounds and rests with his back on, has found Zenhaven to be more comfortable and appealing. Zenhaven to be more solid and more appealing than the memory foam Loom & Leaf The Relaxed Firm or the Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is shipped by movers, and not in a container, so you’re less likely emit that new-mattress smell in your home. You can choose between the more soft Luxury Plush side and gentle firm side Gentle Firm side as your preferences and needs change, or you are unsure of the firmness level you’ll like. Due to the weight of the mattress (the queen weighs 125 pounds), Saatva will send moving experts to help you out by completing a single “courtesy” switch.
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 than similarly priced innersprings and traditional foam mattress because it’s not typically “fluffy.” The nil 2 (of 29) employees who liked it better than any other model in our test of 2020 mattress hybrids and foam said they liked its firmness, 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.)
Since the Zenhaven is particularly heavy and has two sides, it needs to rest on a solid, high-quality platform bed or frame and boxspring in good condition. Saatva sells a Boxspring Foundation (which comes in two sizes) plus a metal frame.
Zenhaven top review of owner feedback
We could find only 18 high-quality owner reviews for Zenhaven. It’s a tiny sample to draw any conclusive, objective, and non-subjective information in addition to excellent customer service. We did however find one particularly insightful post by a longer-term owner who was not sure of his weight (though he did claim that the height was 6 feet 4 inches in height).
He said that after a year and a half, he still was impressed by its cushion and strength but, since he had not been turning the mattress around, the impression on his hip was evident; when he started rotating the mattress every 6 months, he reported that the imprint disappeared. This section will be updated after we’ve gathered more high-quality reviews. Saatva New York
Saatva Latex Hybrid
Who it’s intended forThe Saatva Latex Hybrid is ideal to those who prize the durability of their mattress over lavishness. It’s great for stomach- and back-sleepers as well as people who move around often. 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, slightly bouncy, and has some cushioning and hugging. It’s certainly not luxurious, though, and you sleep more on the mattress than in it.
What we love:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is constructed using top-quality materials and construction techniques. The quilted surface, made out of cotton, and a layer of wool (a natural fire retardant) is hand-tufted to the layers below it. Tufting (commonly found on furniture or traditional-style in-sofa mattresses) is a type of heavy-duty stitching that holds the layers together, which some argue can last longer than glue and avoids the potential chemical smell that adhesives can emit. The peaks and valleys made by tufting could aid in minimizing any visible body impressions, more so than the sock-covered and smooth-topped mattresses that are typically seen in online hybrids.
Though most hybrids place an layer of polyurethane foam over coils, the Saatva Latex Hybrid uses 3 inches of Talalay latex foam (which is ample, compared to the more expensive Casper Wave, which uses half as much). Latex is naturally more breathable and durable than memory foams, or polyurethane. Talalay latex, used in the Zenhaven, is a more breathable and soft-feeling foam than the Dunlop type that is commonly found in lower-priced latex mattresses.
Wirecutter’s supervisory Editor Wendy Schley tested the Saatva Latex Hybrid for several months in her home. She found it to be very supportive and sturdy. “It feels almost buoyant,” she said. “There’s some cushioning to it however it’s not extravagant in a soft way.” Wendy found that the mattress had a bouncy springy feeling that reminded her of an innerspring. She also was never stuck. However, the latex foam provided some motion isolation. Edge support was superb, due to thick (13 3/4 gauge) 8-inch coils that run along the edge.
Thanks to its breathable materials (the Talalay latex, cotton cover, and wool layer in the top) as well as the coils, it is believed that the Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all-foam mattresses or hybrids that are made of polyfoams. Wendy, who tends to have hot sleep, discovered that the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be notably cooler than other mattresses, although we haven’t tried it in the summertime.
We haven’t found enough high-quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to identify any trends, however, we’ll update accordingly when we do.
We don’t love: Though the coils are wrapped individually but there’s still a hint of motion transfer, due to it’s just that, coils. This isn’t as significant as motion transfer on the Saatva Classic, however, it’s more noticeable when compared to all-foam models like the Loom & Leaf or Zenhaven.
A queen-size Latex Hybrid contains 789 coils (fewer than in our favorite hybrid mattresses, the Tempur-Adapt as well as the Leesa Hybrid, with around 1,000). When a mattress has fewer coils, it sometimes means the mattress will not adjust in your shape. But the firmness from the soft latex makes the up.
As Wendy discovered her experience, as Wendy experienced, the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an an ahhh kind of mattress. It’s like it’s lifting you up instead of snuggling you down. It may not offer enough cushioning to provide adequate pressure relief to side-sleepers as well as back-sleepers who require additional cushioning on specific joints.
Wendy who sleeps on her side and back and has reported that she’s woke up with soreness in her shoulders and lower back after sleeping on the Saatva Latex Hybrid. If you’re looking for something more comfortable, you may prefer Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf. Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf (both are available in a variety of firmness levels, including ones that feel softer than the Saatva Latex).
The tufting of the Latex Hybrid’s is highlighted by beautiful yarn tassels. They look pretty but are reportedly flimsy attached as one of the tassels on the mattress Wendy tried to unraveled after some time. Saatva New York
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
The Saatva Solaire can be described as an adjustable-air mattress, made of foam placed on top of air chambers that can be set to the firmness you want with a remote. We haven’t had the chance to test the Solaire yet however we’ll update this article when we’ve had the chance to. In the meantime, we’ll talk about the information we have.
Saatva introduced the Solaire in the year 2019 to rival the Sleep Number’s premium i8 mattress. Apart from air chambers as well as remotes, the Solaire comes with a pillow top, a Talalay the layer of latex, and the gel-infused memory foam layer. It’s also $650 cheaper than the Sleep Number i8.
It has 50 different settings as opposed to Sleep Number’s 20. However, it’s hard to say whether users really need more than that. At a glance, the comfort components look like they’d provide a more-curve-conforming cradle than Sleep Number’s polyurethane foam layers.
However, we can’t know for sure until we lie upon the bed. Solaire’s Talalay latex components suggest long-lasting However, because Sleep Number does not provide details about the foam components, we can’t declare that one mattress will last longer than the others.
If you decide to go with either a twin or a king or something else in between, you can order the Solaire with any dimension you want as a standard model. If you prefer the queen or king, you can upgrade to the Upper-Flex queen, king, or split King, which all feature dual air chambers so sleep partners can pick their own level of firmness.
The standard model is compatible with every bed frame (including adjustable bases). The Upper-Flex queen King, as well as the split king option are designed to specifically work on adjustable bases that allow each side to adjust independently.
The Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, including those with the Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Upper-Flex. With the frame’s upper-flex, couples can use the remote to adjust their shoulders and heads separately (for example, one person can lie flat to sleep while the other sits up and reads or reads a book).
The upper-flex frame designed for the split king Solaire will also permit both to raise their bodies separately. We didn’t have enough top-quality user reviews to put on this list however we’ll be updating this guide when we’re in a position to try the bed out ourselves and gather more reviews. Saatva New York
Like the Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf Saatva HD Saatva HD has a pillowy, quilted top layer, however the firm underlying foam and coil layers are said to support more weight.We’re particularly curious about the pillow top of the HD, as experts informed us that, for heavier people the top of pillows 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). What’s more, the HD’s 12 1/2 -gauge coils are thicker than the coils in the other models of the company and the coils in rival models, such as the Big Fig.
Still, these aren’t the only factors that determine the durability of a mattress and, by itself, doesn’t make for an appealing mattress. We’ll explore the issues in a upcoming guide to mattresses that are suitable for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly strongly suggests” to place the mattress on a sturdy platform bed with a vertical center support.
Otherwise, representatives told us that you must purchase the HD together with its unique “high durability” wooden-slat base.We also spotted a few user reviews that were positive. Once we’ve gathered enough to glean any patterns and have the ability to test the mattress, we’ll give an update. Saatva New York
It’s called the Saatva Youth The company’s innovative coil-and-foam mattress for children is more expensive than mattresses designed for adults. However, it is dual-sided, with a coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam which means that the mattress will grow along with a kid.
Its first layer is intended for children aged 3 to 7 and is comprised of polyfoam that is zoned, with density ranging from 1.4 to 1.8 kg per cubic foot.
On the second side, meant for children older than (the company says ages 8 through 12) the foam density ranges from 1.5 tons per cubic feet and somewhat more softer due to it being paired 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 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 might appreciate that the mattress is wrapped in a thick, quilted organic-cotton cover and uses thistle pulp (as as opposed to fiberglass or chemical sprays) to act as a flame-resistant. We haven’t tried the mattress and we haven’t seen any reviews online. We’re hoping to evaluate it for a possible guide on mattresses for children.
It’s called the Saatva Youth is the company’s new coil-and-foam bed for kids, costs more than some mattresses for grown-ups. But it’s double-sided, featuring the coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam, so the mattress can be able to grow with a child.
Its first layer is intended for children aged 3 to 7, and it is made up of zoned polyfoam with densities that range from 1.4 and 1.8 kg per cubic foot.
The second side is designed for kids older than that (the company claims ages 8 through 12) the density of foam can be as high as 1.5 pounds per cubic foot, and is slightly softer because it’s paired with the more solid part of the coil. The 13 3/4-gauge coils range from 330 to a twin to 350 in a twin XL. They also go up to 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 might appreciate that the mattress is wrapped in a quilted, thick organic-cotton cover and uses thistle pulp (as as opposed to chemical sprays or fiberglass) as the flame retardant. We haven’t yet tested this mattress, nor have we spotted any online reviews.
However, we’d like to test it for a future guide to mattresses for kids. Saatva New York
