In the field of online mattresses, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. Saatva delivers its mattresses by trucks, not in the form of a box. Even though, as with other online sellers, it has rapidly increased its inventory, Saatva remains focused on the selection of “luxury” models, each priced at, with the exception of it’s Youth model, over $1,500 (for one queen size). Saatva Queen
There’s no doubt that there’s a range of mattresses which are more luxurious than Saatva’s. They have higher coil counts and finer materials.
However, we consider Saatva’s mattresses among the most beautiful and thoughtfully designed options available from an online company.
Over the past 2 years we’ve tested our innerspring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom & Leaf, and the all-latex Zenhaven, and they’ve consistently earned a spot among our top picks in our guides to the best foam mattresses as well as the best innerspring mattresses.
We’ve also experienced sleeping on Saatva’s Saatva latex hybrid and have studied the components and construction of the rest of the mattresses in the Saatva lineup.The majority of online mattresses are hybrids or foams, which is why the Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the very few innerspring mattresses you can conveniently purchase online.
Pocketed coils give this Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top. The extra soft top makes it more comfortable. Additionally, like the rest of Saatva’s mattresses, the Saatva Classic is delivered by moving trucks, not in boxes. Saatva also provides a generous 180-day trial period and simple returns.
The all-foam Loom & Leaf is made with denser memory foam than other under-$1,000 mattresses, so it’s less likely to sag in time. For that reason, it’s ideal for those who weigh over 200 pounds.
The quilted and thick cover is cushier and more substantial than the sock-like covers that are found on many foam mattresses, and the cover helps the memory-foam layer underneath feel less soft and squishy.
Like you would expect from an innerspring mattress The Loom and Leaf reduces motion better as compared to those with innersprings like the Saatva Classic.Zenhaven is a 100% foam mattress. Zenhaven consists mostly of latex-specifically Talalay latex, which is made of the rubber tree’s milky sap. It is incredibly durable. Talalay is less stiff than Dunlop latex that is commonly found in the less expensive latex mattresses we’ve tried.
The Zenhaven is also flippable (the Luxury Plush side feels moderately firm, while it’s Gentle Firm side feels a slightly firmer), which might prove beneficial if you’re unsure which side you prefer or your needs change with time.
This isn’t a traditional cushiony mattress, however it offers a supple cushion, good edge support, and subtle springiness.
Given its innate robustness, the Zenhaven should work well for people who weigh more than 200 pounds. Saatva Queen
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 made of latex and coil that is designed for sleepers who weigh between 300 and 500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil hybrid designed for children ages 3-12)
We haven’t yet taken a deep dive into the “natural” claims made by Saatva or the other “eco-friendly” brands.
We do know that the company uses thistle pulp or organic wool to act as a flame-retardant (as opposed to fiberglass or chemicals) and only organic cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its mattress covers.
Similar to other mattress brands online, Saatva touts such extras as zones for “optimal spinal support” but we’re not impressed with those features and are more impressed with Saatva’s quick customer service and its durable coils and foams. Saatva Queen
Saatva Video Review
Who is it to be used forThe Saatva Classic is likely to suit people who prefer a cushy (but not overwhelmingly big and bulky) top layer, and a sturdy, resilient feel. Its Luxury Firm variant (Saatva’s “Medium” offer) that we tried, should suit the back, sideand stomach sleepers. The soft Plush Soft version is geared to those who sleep on their sides, and the Firm versioncaters for stomach and back-sleepers.
The way it feels:We tested the Luxury Firm version of the Saatva Classic-the line’s most popular option-and found it to be soft on top, and with excellent cushioning and bounce. It has the feel of a firm, square shape, but it softens slightly after a break-in period of about a month.
What we likeabout it:The Saatva Classic is among the very few innerspring mattresses you can buy online with the convenience often associated with purchasing an inflatable foam mattress. It contains 416 thick, sturdy coils at the base, for support, and 884 individually wrapped, more flexible coils that are stacked over top to ease pressure. There’s a slice of memory foam in the mix, but the cushioning is actually a 3-inch polyfoam-and-fiber Euro top (an additional layer of cushion sewn under the surface). The resulting feel has broad appeal, being supple, supportive, and with a plushness that doesn’t feel bulky.
We test the 14 1/2-inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm in a 2021 group test that included springs (it’s offered in 11 inches) It was the top choice, with the second-highest number of top-rated polls (nine out of 39 test participants) in the $1,000-$2,000 range (which includes it alongside 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 that day which included mattresses that cost twice as expensive as the Saatva Classic. Two of the nine test participants chose the Saatva Classic as their second-favorite overall.
As for the home test, I looked at it as if I could sleep in this bed every night. I don’t like an overly billowy bed, so I was pleased that the Classic’s Euro top offered what felt to me to be just the perfect amount of cuddling. The bed has 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.
At around $1,600 when it’s not in sale (though it is often), the Saatva Classic is the least expensive innerspring mattress that we’ve tested that feels substantial and a bit luxe. We also love that you can choose from three different levels of firmness: Plush Soft, Luxury Firm, or Firm, so you’ll be able to find a good fit regardless of the sleeping position you choose to sleep in. Contrary to the more soft WinkBed Another option from our innerspring mattress guide, the Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by movers (so that the “new scent of the mattress” has already dissipated in the factory and in transit) Also, this “white gloves” delivery service is free. The company provides a generous 180-day trial period and a 15-year warranty.
What we don’t love: If you’re not fond of the bounce of a mattress, or you’re sensitive to your sleep partner’s movements You probably won’t enjoy Saatva Classic. Saatva Classic. Although all the coils on top are wrapped individually, the lower ones aren’t. so the bed has a bit more motion transfer than the other innerspring choices like those from the WinkBed. If you’re not keen on any kind of bounce You’re better off using Saatva’s Loom & Leaf.
It is worth noting that the Saatva Classic also requires a little bit of time to get used to. When we first test the mattress in 2018 it was medium-firm. one year and a quarter later we noticed that it’s softened a small amount however in a pleasing way (at least for me). It’s not an “Soft” mattress However, those who prefer it might want to try the Plush Soft version, which we haven’t yet tried.
Although the company touts the “active Lumbar Zone” technology to provide “additional back support” my spouse (who weighs in the vicinity of 200 pounds) still craved more support from the Luxury Firm. He may have found that feature in the version for Firm but we haven’t had the chance to test the technology yet, so we don’t know for sure. In general, we are not particularly impressed by zoned technology, because people come in different sizes and heights, and they may spread in a manner that doesn’t match the zoning patterns.
The foam densities of the Saatva Classic are less than those in the Loom & Leaf that is the company’s foam mattress offering. Although representatives of the company would not divulge details, we were informed the density of memory foam weighs at minimum 3 pounds per cubic foot, and that the density of the polyfoam equals 1 1/2 pounds of cubic feet.
This isn’t as great as the densities in the Loom & Leaf, but these are the norm in an innerspring mattress and particularly one that’s priced in this range. In contrast to foam mattresses, the steel coils of this mattress provide an additional level of support, and the quilting can help reduce body impressions.
However, as in this Reddit thread suggests, some sleepers have had better luck on Saatva mattresses. Saatva mattresses over many 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 higher the chance of getting imprints and sagging over time.
So you’ll want to rotate your mattress at least once every six months, and then sleep all over the bed.
Saatva Classic top owner-review feedback
We could find only 39 owner reviews that are of high-quality (those that didn’t seem to be fake or ambiguous and were published in the past, both in 2019 , and in 2020). While the sample size is rather small, it’s worth noting that almost 30% of the positive comments praised Saatva’s customer service. That’s a much bigger percentage than what we’ve seen with other mattress brands online.
We also observed that six reviewers mentioned sagging as the cause of their discomfort. One of them was weighing more than 200lbs, and the rest either had a lower weight or did not mention. The majority of them had owned the mattress for more than one year by the time they wrote their reviews. This suggests that rotating the mattress is crucial and heavier individuals who enjoy innersprings may want to consider the option of a mattress made from more durable latex foam, like this one from the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Saatva Queen
Saatva Loom & Leaf
What it’s designed for: This all foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who appreciate memory foam that cradles rather than engulfing them in a tense, sluggish hug. The softer Relaxed Firm version is a good choice for those who sleep on their sides. The Firm version is made to be used by stomach- or back-sleepers. People who weigh more than 200 pounds might also find the Firm to be more supportive than the Relaxed Firm.
What it feels like:The Relaxed Firm is a medium-firm mattress that cradles without pulling you in; it’s the firm (which we’ve tried only in an actual showroom) is much more firm.
What we like: The 12-inch thick Loom & Leaf comes with a durable, quilted, and sturdy cover that’s similar to what you’d get on a good innerspring mattress (by comparison, most memory-foam mattresses come with flimsier, sock-like covers). The cover is made of foam padding that adds an additional dimension to the usually one-note squishiness of cheaper memory-foam mattresses. I lay on the Relaxed Firm at home for over one week and liked that it was cuddly and solid in the same way. Our husband who likes firm mattresses 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. With these specifications, we think this mattress is less likely to sag or develop body indents than cheaper foam mattresses, even for people who weigh over 200 pounds (though it may not be suitable when you weigh greater than 250 pounds; read reviews from owners, below). Like all foam mattresses, this one has a high-quality motion isolation.
We tested our Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses that cost over $1,000), and twenty-one out of 29 users prefer that of the Loom & Leaf. “It was more comfortable” was a popular reason; a few claimed it was more “cushioned.” In the event that we tested in comparison to it against the Casper Wave in 2019, the results were less unified (18 to the Wave 16 , for it; 16 for the Loom & Leaf). Those who opted for the Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more fitting” feeling or the texture of its quilting; those who chose more of the Casper Wave described the Wave as having more support , and the Loom & Leaf as making the feel of being “stuck.”
We are also pleased our appreciation that Loom & Leaf, like all Saatva Company’s mattresses, is delivered in a box, and by movers. It doesn’t require you to let it air out, like the majority of mattresses that are boxed; off-gassing is likely to have already occurred within the manufacturing facility.
The thing we don’t like about HTML0: We wish Saatva could provide a level of firmness between Firm and Relaxed Firm. The two levels seem at least a few gradations from each other. Although it is true that the Loom & Leaf has better edge support than other well-known online models (such such as Leesa as well as the Casper), it’s not as robust as a hybrid (like that of the Leesa Hybrid or Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom & Leave’s cooler gel, as well as its pin core (punctured) design, which is advertised on the top layer, I did sleep a little warm on this mattress, which was surprising because I’m usually cold. However, given that it was mid-winter in winter, I did not care too much. The tiny holes made to cool the foam could compromise the longevity that the foam has, but likely only a little. Since the Loom & Leaf has a top layer memory-foam density of four tons per cubic foot it will be more durable than your standard $1000 or less online foam mattress.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We found only 16 recently updated, top-quality reviewers of Loom & Leaf. Loom & Leaf. Similar to Saatva Classic, as with Saatva Classic, good customer service stands out from the positive reviews. In the years 2019 and 2020 reviews, more people described the Loom & Leaf as “too firm” as opposed to “too too soft.” But it’s not easy to make a conclusion about its texture. Many reviewers didn’t specify whether they’d ordered the Relaxed Firm or the Firm.
We also observed 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 this Relaxed Firm version not being firm enough for those who weigh around 250 pounds. If that is you, you might consider using the Firm version (though it’s very stiff) as well as the the Tempur-Adapt (which is also made of dense foam but a more-distinct memory foam hug). If you weigh well over 200 pounds, it’s time to look into an alternative like the Zenhaven Zenhaven, which is made of more durable latex foam. Saatva Queen
We recommend it? Yes.
Who it’s intended for The latex-foam Zenhaven is a good choice for people who sleep in any position, especially those who want a firm cushion that doesn’t give the “sunk-in” feeling. It’s also good for all types of people that include those who weigh over 200 pounds.
The way it feels This mattress can be flipped, and it has handles that let you choose between two options The Luxury Plush side is at the gentle side of the medium-firm spectrum, and it’s good for side-sleepers. The Gentle Firm side offers a slightly more firmer feeling (the company says it’s about 20% firmer, and that sounds right to us).
What we like: Zenhaven Zenhaven comprises of two layers of latex (one of which is zoned for pressure points and lower back support, though this may or could not be useful, depending on your size and position on your bed). Latex is a type of foam that comes by the milky sap of the rubber tree and it is much stronger than polyurethane foam or memory foam. Therefore, we think this mattress is more robust for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
We love this mattress because the Zenhaven is specifically made from Talalay latex that feels more flexible than Dunlop latex commonly found in cheaper, stiffer latex mattresses, like the Sleep On Latex Pure Green. Both the Luxury Plush along with the Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven are incredibly soft and springy, but not elasticky. The entire bed is also more comfortable than beds made mostly with Dunlop latex.
I slept on the Zenhaven for a few months. Personally, I prefer a soft feeling (like it’s counterpart, the Saatva Classic) however, the Luxury Plush side of the Zenhaven had grown on me. After breaking it in for a few weeks, I started to appreciate its supple, slightly springy surface and the cushioned cradle.
My 10-year-old son also likes jumping on it, and the Zenhaven’s motion-isolation feature isn’t a barrier to me being a bit uncomfortable about that. It’s enough to ensure that I don’t notice my husband’s movements at night. The edge support is slightly better than that of most foam mattresses, such as the Loom & Leaf.
Our husband who is less than 200 pounds, and who usually is a back sleeper, likes the Zenhaven to be more substantial and appealing than the memory-foam Loom & Leaf Relaxed Soft or the Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is delivered by movers, and not in a box, which means there’s less chance to release that new-mattress smell in your home. You can switch between the more soft Luxury Plush side and the Gentle Firm side as your preferences and preferences change, or you are unsure of the firmness level you’d like. Due to the weight of the mattress (the queen is at 125 kilograms), Saatva will send movers to help you by completing a single “courtesy” switch.
What we don’t like:Although the Zenhaven has more supple and soft feel than other all-latex mattresses sold online, it’s still less luxurious-feeling than comparable innersprings, or traditional foam mattresses because it’s not conventionally “fluffy.” The nil 2 (of 29) staff members who enjoyed it more than any other model in our 2020 test of the hybrid and foam mattresses stated that they enjoyed its firmness, and believed that it could last a long duration. (In the latex category, most staffers in our blind test preferred the PranaSleep Lotus Asana 6 in Plush, which has a latex-polyurethane-foam construction and costs over $1,000 more than the Zenhaven.)
Because the Zenhaven is extremely heavy and has two sides, it needs to rest on a sturdy, good-quality platform bed or boxspring and frame in good condition. Saatva offers the Boxspring Foundation (which is available in two sizes) as well as a frame made of steel.
Zenhaven top owner-review feedback
We could find just 18 reviews from owners of high-quality for the Zenhaven. This is a small sample to draw 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 of unknown weight (though he did claim that the height was 6 feet 4 inches high).
He said that after a year and a half, he still appreciated its cushion and resilience however, as he hadn’t been rotating the mattress, he noticed a hip impression after which, when he started turning the mattress once every six months, he claimed the impression was gone. We’ll update this page once we’ve collected more high-quality reviews. Saatva Queen
Saatva Latex Hybrid
Who it’s to be used forThe Saatva Latex Hybrid is ideal to those who prefer durability over extravagantness. It’s perfect for back and stomach sleepers, and for those who toss and turn often. It’s designed to last for most people, not just those who weigh over 200 pounds.
The way it feelsThis 13-inch hybrid of latex and coil is on the firm side of medium-firm. It feels distinctly buoyant, a touch bouncy, with some cushioning and cradling. It’s not a plush mattress however, and it’s more comfortable to sleep on the mattress than inside it.
What we love:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is built using high-quality materials and construction techniques. The quilted surface, made from cotton as well as wool (a natural fire retardant), is hand-tufted to the layers beneath it. Tufting (commonly used on upholstery or traditional-style innerspring mattresses) is a kind of strong stitching that holds the layers together and can last longer than glue and also avoids the chemical smell that adhesives can emit. Its peaks as well as valleys produced by tufting could help limit any obvious body impressions, and more so than the sock-covered, smooth-topped mattresses that you usually see in hybrids sold online.
Although most hybrids use a layer of polyurethane foam on top of coils, the Saatva Latex Hybrid uses 3 inches of Talalay latex foam (which is ample, compared with the pricier Casper Wave, which uses half as much). Latex is naturally more durable and breathable than polyurethane or memory foams. Talalay latex, used in Zenhaven, 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 a few months in her home. She found it to be strong and supportive. “It feels like it’s floating,” she said. “There’s some cushioning but it’s not luxurious in a soft way.” Wendy found that the mattress had a bouncy springy feeling that reminded her of an innerspring. She also never felt stuck in place-but the latex foam did provide some motion isolation. Its edge support can be described as superb, due to thick (13 3/4 -gauge) 8-inch coils along the edges.
Due to its breathable material (the Talalay latex, cotton cover, and wool layer in the top) and the coils, this Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all-foam mattresses and hybrids made from polyfoams. Wendy who is known to have hot sleep, discovered it to be cooler than the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be considerably cooler than the other mattresses, even though we haven’t tested it during the summer months.
We haven’t spotted enough good-quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to discern any trends, but we’ll keep you updated when we do.
What we don’t like: Though the coils are individually wrapped, there’s still a touch of motion transfer because, well, coils. It’s minimal compared with motion transfer on the Saatva Classic, but it’s much more prominent when compared to all-foam models such as Zenhaven, the Loom & Leaf or Zenhaven.
A queen-sized Latex Hybrid contains 789 coils (fewer than our top hybrid mattresses, the The Tempur-Adapt as well as the Leesa Hybrid, that have more than 1,000). When a mattress has fewer coils, this can mean it won’t be able to adjust with your physique. However, the supple feel that the layer of latex more than makes up for that.
As Wendy has experienced that night, the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an ahhh kind of mattress. It feels like it’s lifting you up, instead of snuggling you down. It may not offer enough cushioning to offer enough pressure relief to side sleepers or back sleepers who need extra cushioning on specific joints.
Wendy sleeping on both her back and side and has reported that she’s woke up with soreness in her lower back and shoulders following her sleep on the Saatva Latex Hybrid. If you’re looking to get something more plush, you may be interested in one of the Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf (both are available in a variety of degree of firmness, with some that are softer than Saatva Latex).
The Latex Hybrid’s tufting is highlighted by decorative yarn tassels. They look pretty but are apparently flimsily attached as one of the tassels on the mattress Wendy tested unraveled after several weeks. Saatva Queen
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
Saatva’s Solaire can be described as an adjustable air bed made of foam on top of air chambers that can be set to the firmness you want using an electronic remote. We haven’t yet tried the Solaire yet, but we’ll update this article when we do. We’ll be discussing the information we have.
Saatva introduced the Solaire in 2019 to be able to compete with the Sleep Number’s premium i8 bed. Along with air chambers as well as an integrated remote The Solaire is equipped with the option of a pillow top, Talalay latex layer, as well as an infused memory foam layer. It’s also $650 cheaper over the Sleep Number’s i8.
The remote comes with 50 options as opposed to Sleep Number’s 20, but realistically we’re not sure whether users really 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.
However, we can’t know whether they’re the best choice until we lay upon the bed. Solaire’s Talalay latex material suggests longevity however, since Sleep Number does not provide information about its foam materials, 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 the Solaire at any length, as the standard model. Or, if you choose either a queen or a king, you can upgrade to the Upper-Flex queen, king, or split king. All of them come with two air chambers, so sleep partners can pick their own level of firmness.
The standard model is compatible with any bed frame (including adjustable bases). However, the Upper-Flex queen, King and split-king models are made to be specifically compatible with adjustable bases, which allow both sides to be adjusted independently.
Saatva Company offers adjustable frames. Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, which include the Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Upper-Flex. With the Upper-Flex frame, couples can use the remote to adjust their shoulders and head 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 can also allow both people to raise their bodies separately. We couldn’t locate enough high-quality owner reviews to include here We’ll revise this guide once we’re able try the bed out ourselves and collect more reviews. Saatva Queen
In May of 2019, Saatva introduced the Saatva HD which is a hybrid mattress made for people who weigh between 300-500 pounds. We haven’t tried this mattress yet, but we’re planning to try it out in the near future.
Similar to Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf, the 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 top of the pillow in the HD since experts have told us that for heavier people, 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). What’s more the HD’s 12 1/2 gauge coils are more robust than those in the other models from the company as well as those in its competitors like the Big Fig.
But these aren’t necessarily the only criteria that affect the mattress’s longevity as well as its durability on its own isn’t enough to make a good mattress. We’ll explore these issues further in an upcoming guide to mattresses for those who weigh over 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly strongly suggests” to place the mattress on a sturdy platform bed with a vertical center support.
If not, they advised us that you must buy the HD together with the “high durability” wood-slat foundation.Again, we spotted very few positive reviews from users. After we’ve had enough data to identify any trends and are able for a mattress test, we’ll give an update. Saatva Queen
The Saatva Youth The company’s new coil-and-foam bed for kids is more expensive than mattresses for adults. But it’s dual-sided, with a coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam, so the mattress can grow along with a kid.
Its first layer is designed for children aged 3 to 7, and it consists of zoned polyfoam , which has density ranging from 1.4 up to 1.8 pounds per cubic foot.
On the other side, intended for older kids (the company says ages 8 through 12) the foam density is 1.5 tons per cubic feet and somewhat softer because it’s paired with the firmer side that’s part of the coil. The 13 3/4 gauge coils range from 330 to the size of a twin, up to 350 when a twin is XL, and 462 for a full.
The Saatva Youth is 10 inches thick and bunk-bed-friendly-as long as the bed’s guardrail is at least 5 inches higher than the mattress, for safety reasons. People who prefer natural materials will appreciate the fact that the mattress is covered in a thick, quilted organic-cotton cover and uses thistle pulp (as opposed to fiberglass or chemical sprays) as the flame retardant. We haven’t yet tried this mattress, nor have we spotted any reviews online. However, we’re planning to test it for a possible guide on mattresses for children.
The Saatva Youth is the company’s innovative coil-and-foam mattress for kids, costs more than some mattresses designed for adults. However, it is dual-sided, with an inner coil sandwiched between two foam layers which means that the mattress will expand with the child.
The first side is designed for kids ages 3 through 7, and it consists of polyfoam that is zoned, with density ranging between 1.4 up to 1.8 tons per square foot.
On the other side, intended for older kids (the company claims ages 8 through 12) the density of foam ranges from 1.5 tons per cubic feet and somewhat more softer due to it being paired with the more solid section of coil. The 13 3/4-gauge coils vary from 330 in 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 quilted, thick organic cotton cover. It also uses thistle pulp (as instead of fiberglass or chemical sprays) as the fire retardant. We haven’t tried the mattress as we haven’t found any reviews online.
We’re hoping to evaluate it for a possible guide to mattresses for kids. Saatva Queen
