In the sea of mattresses sold online, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. Saatva delivers its mattresses by trucks, not in boxes. And even though, like other online sellers they have progressively developed its range, Saatva remains focused on the selection of “luxury” models that are all costing less than its Youth model, over $1,500 (for one queen size). Saatva Plush Mattress
Sure, there’s a range of mattresses which are more luxurious than Saatva’s, featuring greater coil counts and more refined materials.
But we find Saatva’s mattresses to be among the most elegant-looking and thoughtfully designed choices that are available from an online business.
Over the last two years, we’ve gathered to test the Innerspring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom & Leaf, and the all-latex Zenhaven and have consistently placed among our top picks in our reviews of the best foam mattresses and the best innerspring mattresses.
We’ve also used Saatva’s Saatva Latex Hybrid, and we’ve researched the construction and components of the rest of the mattresses in the Saatva lineup.The majority of online mattresses are either hybrids or foams so the Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the very few innerspring mattresses that you can buy online.
Pocketed coils provide Saatva Classic Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top, and a plush top adds softness. Also, as with the rest of Saatva’s mattresses that are available, the Saatva Classic is delivered by movers, rather than in boxes. Saatva offers 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 shrink 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 sturdy than the sock-like cover on most foam mattresses, and the cover helps the memory foam underneath feel less soft and squishy.
Just like you’d expect with a memory-foam bed The Loom and Leaf reduces movement more as compared to an innerspring Saatva Classic.All-foam Zenhaven consists mostly of latex, specifically Talalay latex. It is made from the plant’s milky sap, and is intrinsically durable. Talalay is less brittle than Dunlop latex, which is typically found in the less expensive latex mattresses we’ve tried.
Zenhaven is a good choice. Zenhaven can be flippable (the Luxury Plush side feels moderately firm, while it’s Gentle Firm side feels a little more firm) This could be useful if you’re not certain what you prefer or if your preferences change over time.
This isn’t a traditional cushy mattress, but it has a soft cushion, excellent edge support, and a slight springiness.
Because of its quality, the Zenhaven will be suitable for people who weigh over 200 pounds. Saatva Plush Mattress
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 air chambers that can be adjusted)
- Saatva HD (a hybrid of latex and coils made for people who weigh between 300-500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil hybrid for kids ages 3 through 12)
We haven’t yet taken an exhaustive study of what we consider to be the “natural” claims made by Saatva or other “eco-friendly” brands.
However, we know that the company uses organic wool or thistle pulp to act as a flame-retardant (as opposed to fiberglass or chemicals) as well as only natural cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its mattress covers.
Like other online mattress manufacturers, Saatva touts such extras as zoned layers for “optimal spine support”; we’re less impressed with those features and more appreciative of Saatva’s quick customer service and durable foams and coils. Saatva Plush Mattress
Saatva Video Review
Who’s it for:The Saatva Classic will likely appeal to those who prefer a cushy (but not too big and bulky) top layer and a sturdy, resilient feel. This Luxury Firm version (Saatva’s “Medium” offer) We tested it is a good choice for the back, side-, and stomach-sleepers. The soft Plush Soft version is geared to those who sleep on their sides, and the Firm versioncaters to back- and stomach-sleepers.
How it feels:We tested the Luxury Firm version of the Saatva Classic – the line’s most popular option-and discovered it to be soft on top, with good rebound and support. It starts out with an incredibly firm feel but it becomes softer after the break-in period that lasts a couple of months.
We like:The Saatva Classic is among the very few innerspring mattresses you can purchase online without the convenience often associated with purchasing the traditional boxed foam mattress. It is made up of 416 robust coils in the base, for support, with 884 wrapped individually, more flexible coils that are stacked over top to ease pressure. There’s also a bit of memory foam in the mix, however the real cushioning comes from a 3-inch polyfoam-and-fiber Euro top (an additional layer of cushion that is sewn beneath the surface). The resulting feel has broad appeal-supportive, resilient, and with a plushness that isn’t a hefty billowy sensation.
We tried the 14 1/2-inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm in a group test that included mattresses with innersprings (it’s additionally available in 11 1/2″), and it captured the second-highest number of top-rated polls (nine from 39 testers) in the $1,000 to $2,000 category (which included three other mattresses: the Avocado, the Parachute and the top-ranked WinkBed). Five of those nine testers loved their Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses in the same test, including those that cost twice as much as the Saatva Classic. Two of the nine testers selected the Saatva Classic as their second-favorite overall.
For the home test I was looking at it as if I could sleep in this bed every night. I’m not a fan of a bulky bed, so I appreciated how the Classic’s Euro top offered what felt to me like just the ideal amount of cuddle. The bed does have some bounce, but not so much that my husband’s roll awakened me. To me, the buoyed up feel was worth the tradeoff in motion-isolation.
Around $1,600 if it’s not for sale (though it’s often) The Saatva Classic is the least expensive innerspring mattress we’ve tested that feels thick and luxurious. We also love the fact that you have the option of choosing from three different levels of firmness: Plush Luxurious Firm, Soft, or Firm. This means you’ll get a perfect fit regardless of the mattress you’re sleeping in. Contrary to the more soft WinkBed, another pick in our innerspring mattress guide, the Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by the movers (so that the “new scent of the mattress” is already gone from the factory and during transport), and this “white gloves” delivery is absolutely free. Saatva offers a huge 180-day trial period, as well as a 15-year warranty.
We don’t likeabout: If you’re not a fan of an extremely bouncy mattress or you’re sensitive to your sleep partner’s movements, you probably won’t like the Saatva Classic. Although those coils at the top have been individually wrapped the bottom coils aren’t, so the bed has more motion transfer than the other innerspring options including those from the WinkBed. If you’re not keen on any bounce at all 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 tested the mattress, in 2018, it felt medium-firm; a year and a quarter later we noticed that it softened little however in a pleasing way (at at least to me). This is not a “Soft” mattress, however; those who prefer it might be interested in the Plush Soft version, which we haven’t tried yet.
While the company claims to have the “active Lumbar Zone” technology for “additional back support,” our husband (who weighs in the vicinity of 200 pounds) wanted more support from the Luxury Firm. He might have found that feature in the version for Firm, however, we haven’t tried the technology at this point, therefore we don’t know for sure. We are not particularly impressed by zoned technology, because people have various sizes and shapes and they might sprawl in a manner that doesn’t conform to the zoning patterns.
The foam densities in Saatva Classic are lower than those in Saatva Classic are less than those of the Loom & Leaf, the company’s foam-mattress offering. While representatives from the company wouldn’t reveal the details, we were told the density of memory foam is at minimum 3 pounds in cubic feet, and the density of polyfoam is 1 1/2 pounds per cubic foot.
This isn’t as great than the density of the Loom & Leaf, but these are the norm of an innerspring bed, and especially one in this price category. In contrast to foam mattresses, this mattress’s steel coils provide additional support, and the quilting may help to prevent body impressions.
However, as this Reddit post suggests, some sleepers have had better results on their Saatva mattresses over the course of several years than others. We believe this is based on the shape and size of the sleeper. Similar to all Euromattress – also known as a pillow-top mattress, the more you weigh, the more you risk seeing sagging and imprints over time.
So you’ll want to rotate your mattress at least every six months, and then sleep all over the mattress.
Saatva Classic top owner-review feedback
We found only 39 high-quality owner reviews (those which didn’t appear untrue or unclear, and that were posted recently, in 2019 and 2020). Although the sample size is quite small, we believe it’s interesting that more than 30% of positive reviews praised Saatva’s service to customers. This is more than we’ve seen for other online mattress companies.
We also observed that six reviewers had mentioned sagging as a problem; one of these reviewers had a weight of more than 200 pounds and the other weighed less than that or didn’t say. The majority of them had been using the mattress for more than an entire year prior to the date the review was written. This indicates that turning the mattress is essential; heavier people who like innersprings might want to look at a mattress with intrinsically more-durable latex foam, like this one from the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Saatva Plush Mattress
Saatva Loom & Leaf
What it’s designed for: This all foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who appreciate memory foam that cradles, as opposed to engulfing them in a soft, slow hug. The soft Relaxed Firm model may be best for side-sleepers. The Firm version is made for stomach or back sleepers. People who weigh more than 200 pounds may consider the Firm to be more supportive than the Relaxed Firm.
The way it feels:The Relaxed Firm is a mattress with a moderate firmness that holds you without pulling you in; the Firm (which we’ve tried only in an actual showroom) is firmer.
What we likeabout it: The 12-inch thick Loom & Leaf comes with a durable, quilted, and sturdy cover, similar to the one you’d get on a good innerspring mattress (by contrast, many memory foam mattresses are made of sock-like, thin covers). That cover contains its own foam padding that adds more depth to the normally one-note squishiness of cheaper memory-foam mattresses. I have slept on the Relaxed firm at home for over a week, and I enjoyed the fact that it was soft and solid but also firm. Our husband who loves mattress that are firm, and weighs 70 pounds heavier 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. Based on these specs, we think this mattress will be less likely to slide or develop body indents as compared to 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 over 250 pounds; check the owner review feedback, below). Like every foam mattress provides excellent motion isolation.
In 2020, we tested our Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses, which cost more than $1000) The results showed that 20 of the 29 respondents preferred the Loom & Leaf. “It was more comfortable” was a common explanation; some even claimed it was better “cushioned.” In the event that we test it with it against the Casper Wave in 2019 the results were split (18 for the Wave and 16 for that of the Loom & Leaf). People who went with that Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more flexible” feel or appreciated the texture of its quilting while those who went 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 that the Loom & Leaf, like the rest of Saatva Company’s mattresses, comes delivered unboxed, by moving trucks. It doesn’t require you to air it out, like you do with the majority of mattresses that are boxed; off-gassing will have been done within the factory.
What we don’t like: We wish Saatva offered a firmness level between Relaxed Firm and Firm. two levels seem at least a few gradations apart. Although Loom & Leaf Loom & Leaf has better edge support than the other well-known online models (such as the Leesa or the Casper), it’s not as robust as the combination (like those like the Leesa Hybrid or the Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom and Leaf’s cooling gel and pin core (punctured) design touted on the top layer, I was able to sleep quite warmer on this mattress which was a surprise since I’m always cold. But given that it was mid-winter of winter, I didn’t feel too much. The tiny holes designed for cooling might compromise the durability that the foam has, however likely only a little. Since it is the Loom & Leaf has a top-layer memory-foam density of 4 tons per cubic foot it will still prove more durable than the typical $1000 or less online foam mattress.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We found only 16 recent, high-quality user reviews for Loom & Leaf. Loom & Leaf. Like the Saatva Classic, good customer service stands out in the glowing reviews. In 2019 and 2020, more reviewers said that this Loom & Leaf as “too firm” as opposed to “too soft.” However it’s difficult to make a conclusion about the feel of the mattress. Many reviewers didn’t mention whether they’d purchased one of the Relaxed Firm or Firm.
We also noticed that more seasoned reviewers often refer to their experience with the Loom & Leaf as too soft or even too saggy. For instance, we found complaints on Reddit about it being too soft or even saggy. Relaxed Firm version being sagging for people who weigh between 250 pounds; if this is your case, look into the Firm version (though it’s very firm) as well as it could be the Tempur-Adapt (which also has dense foam, but with a distinct memory foam hug). If you weigh more than 200 pounds, you should look into an alternative like the Zenhaven that is built with more durable latex foam. Saatva Plush Mattress
Does it merit our recommendation? Yes.
Who is it intended for The latex-foam Zenhaven will suit those that sleep at any angle, particularly those who prefer a soft cushion without that “sunk-in” sensation. It’s also great for all types of people, including those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
The way it feels This foam mattress can be flipped and has handles to help you easily choose between two options: Its Luxury Plush side is at the soft side of the medium-firm range, and is suitable for sleepers who are side-sleepers. This side’s Gentle Firm side offers a slightly more firmer feeling (the company claims that it’s 20% firmer, and that seems right to us).
What we likeabout it: Zenhaven Zenhaven comprises of two layers of latex (one that is a zoned one for pressure points and lower back support however this could or might not be beneficial, depending on your size and position on your bed). Latex is a kind of foam made from the milky sap the rubber tree, and is better than polyurethane foam or memory foam. Therefore, we believe that this mattress is more robust for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
We like it that Zenhaven is specifically made from Talalay latex, which feels more soft than Dunlop latex typically found in less expensive, stiffer latex mattresses, such as the Sleep on Latex Pure Green. The luxury Plush and Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven feel supple and not elastic. The whole bed is also more comfortable than mattresses made of Dunlop latex.
I slept on the Zenhaven for a few months. Personally, I prefer a more pillowy feeling (like it’s counterpart, the Saatva Classic), but the Luxury Plush part of the Zenhaven had grown on me. After using it for a few weeks, I began to appreciate its soft slightly springy surface as well as its cushioned cradle.
My 10-year-old son also likes jumping on it, and the Zenhaven’s motion aversion isn’t a barrier to me feeling that. However, it’s sufficient that I don’t notice my husband’s movements at night. Its edge support can be higher than the majority of foam mattresses, and even on the Loom & Leaf.
The husband of my friend, who is barely 200 pounds and is a back sleeper, has found Zenhaven to be more comfortable and appealing. Zenhaven as more solid and attractive than the memory foam Loom & Leaf the Relaxed firm as well as it’s Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is delivered by movers, not shipped in a box, which means there’s less chance to give off the fresh-mattress scent in your home. It’s possible to switch between the more soft luxury Plush side and gentle firm side Gentle Firm side as your preferences and preferences change, or you just aren’t certain which firmness degree you’ll prefer. Since the mattress is very heavy (the queen is at 125 weight), Saatva will send moving experts to help you out with one-time “courtesy” switch.
What we don’t like:Although the Zenhaven has a more-supple feel than many other all-latex mattresses sold online, it’s still less luxurious-feeling than similarly priced innersprings and traditional foam mattress since it’s not traditionally “fluffy.” The nil 2 (of 29) staff members who were more satisfied than any other model in our 2020 test of mattress hybrids and foam stated that they were pleased the fact that it was supportive and believed that it could last for a long time. (In the latex category, most staffers in our blind test preferred the PranaSleep Lotus Asana 6 in Plush, which has a latex-polyurethane-foam construction and costs over $1,000 more than the Zenhaven.)
Because the Zenhaven is particularly heavy and two-sided, it needs to rest on a sturdy, good-quality platform bed or boxspring and frame in good shape. Saatva offers a Boxspring Foundation (which comes in two heights) and a frame made of metal.
Zenhaven top owner-review feedback
We were able to find only 18 quality reviews of owners for the Zenhaven-too small a sample size to provide any definitive, non-subjective conclusion that go beyond the good customer service. We did however find one particularly insightful blog post written by a more long-term owner who was not sure of his weight (though he did claim that his height was 6’4 inches in height).
He stated that after a year and an half, he appreciated its cushion and resilience but, since he had not been rotating the mattressregularly, there was a hip impression and when he began rotating the mattress each 6 months, he reported that the imprint disappeared. We’ll update this page once we’ve collected more high-quality reviews. Saatva Plush Mattress
Saatva Latex Hybrid
Who it’s intended forThe Saatva Latex Hybrid is ideal to those who prefer sturdiness over sumptuousness. It’s perfect for back and stomach sleepers and people who move around frequently. It should hold up well for most people, not just those who weigh over 200 pounds.
What it feels like:This 13-inch hybrid of latex and coil is in the middle of medium-firm. It feels distinctly buoyant, somewhat bouncy and with some cushioning and the feeling of being cradled. It’s certainly not luxurious however, and you’ll sleep better on the mattress than inside it.
We like:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is built using high-quality materials and construction methods. The quilted surface, made from cotton and a layer of wool (a natural flame retardant), is hand-tufted to the layers below it. Tufting (commonly seen on upholstery or traditional-style in-sofa mattresses) is a type of heavy-duty stitching which holds the layers together and is more durable than glue and also avoids the chemical smell that is often associated with adhesives. Its peaks as well as valleys made by tufting can reduce any visible body impressions. This is more than the smooth-topped, sock-covered mattresses you typically see in online hybrids.
While most hybrids put a layer of polyurethane foam over coils, the Saatva Latex Hybrid uses 3 inches of Talalay latex foam (which is plenty, in comparison with the pricier Casper Wave, which uses less). Latex is naturally more durable and breathable than polyurethane or memory foams. Talalay latex, which is also utilized in the Zenhaven mattress, is a more breathable, supple and comfortable foam than the Dunlop varieties that are typically used in cheaper mattresses made of latex.
Wirecutter’s supervising editor Wendy Schley tested the Saatva Latex Hybrid for several months at home. She found it to be very supportive and sturdy. “It seems like it’s floating,” she said. “There’s some cushioning to it however it’s not extravagant in a plush way.” Wendy found that the mattress has a buoyant, springy feel reminiscent of an innerspring. She never felt stuck in place-but the latex foam did provide some motion isolation. Edge support was great due to the large (13 3/4-gauge) 8-inch coils along the edge.
Due to its breathable material (the Talalay latex, cotton cover, and wool layer in the top) and the coils, the Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all-foam mattresses or hybrids that are made of polyfoams. Wendy, who tends to sleep hot, found the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be notably cooler than other mattresses, though we haven’t tested it during summer.
We haven’t found enough high-quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to glean any trends, but we’ll update when we can.
What we don’t like about HTML0: Though the coils are wrapped in a single piece but there’s still a hint of motion transfer due to, it’s just that, coils. It’s not as noticeable as movement transfer that’s present on Saatva Classic, however, it’s more noticeable when compared to all-foam models like Zenhaven, the Loom & Leaf or Zenhaven.
A queen-sized Latex Hybrid contains 789 coils (fewer than in our favorite hybrid mattresses, the Tempur-Adapt or the Leesa Hybrid, which have around 1,000). If a mattress is made up of fewer coils, this can mean the mattress won’t be as comfortable in your shape. But the resilient feel of the latex layer more than makes up for that.
As Wendy has experienced, the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an ahhh type of mattress. It feels like it’s lifting you up instead of snuggling you down. It may not offer enough cushioning to provide enough pressure relief to side sleepers, or even to back-sleepers who require additional cushioning on certain joints.
Wendy who sleeps on her side and back, reported that she sometimes felt sore in her lower back and shoulders when she slept on Saatva Latex Hybrid. If you’re looking to get something more plush, you may want to consider one of the Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf (both come in different firmness levels, including ones which feel more soft than the Saatva Latex).
The Latex Hybrid’s tufting is finished with decorative yarn tassels. They look pretty but appear to be flimsy, and One of the yarn tassels that were on the mattress Wendy tested unraveled after a few weeks. Saatva Plush Mattress
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
The Saatva Solaire can be described as an adjustable-air bed, consisting of foam on top of air chambers, that can be set to the firmness you want with a remote. We haven’t tried the Solaire yet however we’ll update this guide once we do. In the meantime, we’ll be discussing the information we have.
Saatva has introduced Solaire in the year 2019 to compete with the Sleep Number’s premium i8 bed. In addition to having air chambers and remotes The Solaire comes with an adjustable pillow top, Talalay latex layer, and the gel-infused memory foam layer. It’s also priced at $650 less that the Sleep Number I8.
The remote has 50 settings as opposed to Sleep Number’s 20 settings, but realistically we’re not sure whether people even need this many. At a glance, the comfort components look like they’d provide a more-curve-conforming cradle than Sleep Number’s polyurethane foam layers.
But, as always it’s impossible to know whether they’re the best choice until we lay down on the mattress. The Solaire’s Talalay latex components suggest long-lasting however, since Sleep Number doesn’t provide any details about the foam components, we can’t say that one bed will last longer than the others.
Whether you choose a twin or a king size, or something else You can purchase Solaire Solaire in any size, as the standard model. If you decide to go with a queen or a King and want to upgrade, you can choose the Upper-Flex queen or King, or split king. All of them have dual air chambers, meaning that the sleepers can select the firmness level they prefer.
The standard model works on any bed frame (including adjustable bases). The Upper-Flex queen King, as well as the split-king models are made to work specifically on adjustable bases that permit both sides to be adjusted independently.
The Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, such as those with the Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Upper-Flex. The frame’s Upper-Flex feature allows couples can utilize the remote to adjust their shoulders and head separately (for example, one of them can lay flat and sleep while the other sits up and reads a book).
The Upper-Flex designed for the split king Solaire also allows both individuals to elevate their lower bodies independently. We couldn’t find enough high-quality owner reviews to list here We’ll revise this guide once we’re able to test the bed for ourselves and gather additional reviews. Saatva Plush Mattress
In May of 2019, Saatva introduced the Saatva HD, a hybrid mattress specifically designed for those who weigh between 300 and 500 pounds. We haven’t yet tested the mattress , yet. However, we’re hoping to do so in the future.
Like the Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf, the Saatva HD has a pillowy quilted top layer but the dense underlying foam and coil layers allegedly support more weight.We’re particularly interested in the HD’s pillow top, because experts told 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 the HD’s 12 1/2 -gauge coils are more dense than those in the other models from the company as well as the coils in rival models like The Big Fig.
However, these aren’t the only factors that determine the durability of a mattress and, by itself, does not make for a desirable mattress. We plan on investigating these issues further in an coming guide to mattresses designed that are suitable for those who weigh over 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly recommends” that you place this mattress on a solid platform bed with a vertical center support.
In other words, Saatva representatives advised us that you must buy the HD together with the “high durabil” wood-slat foundation.Also, we found a few helpful user reviews. Once we’ve gathered enough to discern any trends and for a mattress test, we’ll provide an update. Saatva Plush Mattress
The Saatva Youth The company’s innovative coil-and-foam mattress for children is more expensive than mattresses designed for adults. It is however double-sided, featuring the coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam and a mattress that can grow along with a kid.
The first side is designed for children aged 3 to 7 years old, and it is made up of zoned polyfoam , which has density ranging between 1.4 up to 1.8 pounds per cubic foot.
On the other side, intended for older kids (the company states that it’s for that the age range is 8-12) the density of foam is 1.5 tons per cubic feet, and is slightly less spongy due to its pairing with the more firm side in the coil. The 13 3/4 -gauge coils range from 330 to a twin to 350 when a twin is 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. Those who prefer natural materials might appreciate the fact that the mattress is covered in a thick, quilted 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 and we haven’t seen any reviews online. However, we’re planning to test it for a future guide to kids’ mattresses.
It’s called the Saatva Youth, the company’s relatively innovative coil-and-foam mattress for kids is more expensive than mattresses designed for adults. However, it is double-sided, featuring a coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam which means that the mattress will expand with the child.
One side of the mattress is designed for kids ages 3 through 7 and is comprised of zoned polyfoam with density ranging between 1.4 and 1.8 tons per square foot.
The second side is intended for older kids (the company claims ages 8 through 12), the foam density can be as high as 1.5 pounds per cubic foot, and is slightly less softer since it’s coupled with the firmer section of coil. The 13 3/4 -gauge coils range from 330 in a twin up to 350 in 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. For those who prefer natural materials, might appreciate the fact that the mattress is encased in a thick, quilted organic-cotton covers and utilizes thistle pulp (as opposed to chemical sprays or fiberglass) as the flame retardant. We haven’t tried the mattress and we haven’t seen any reviews on the internet.
However, we’d like to test it for a future guide to kids’ mattresses. Saatva Plush Mattress
