In the field of mattresses on the internet, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. Saatva ships its mattresses via truckinstead of boxes. While, like other sellers on the internet they have progressively expanded its line, Saatva remains focused on a range of “luxury” models, each costing, with the exception of the Youth model, over $1500 (for one queen size). Saatva Reviews 2016
Sure, there’s a whole range of mattresses that are more luxurious than Saatva’s. They have greater coil counts and more refined materials.
We find Saatva’s mattresses to be among the most elegant-looking and well-designed options that are available from an online business.
Over the last three years, our team has group-tested our insidespring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom & Leaf, and the all-latex Zenhaven which have all earned a spot among our top picks in our guide 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 construction and components of the other mattresses in the Saatva lineup.The majority of online mattresses are foams or hybrids, which is why it’s no surprise that the Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the very few innerspring mattresses you can conveniently buy online.
Pocketed coils provide this Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce close to the top, and a extra soft top makes it more comfortable. Additionally, like the other Saatva Company mattresses, the Saatva Classic is delivered by moving trucks, not in the form of a box. Saatva offers the option of a 180-day trial and simple returns.
All-foam Loom & Leaf is constructed with more dense memory foam than other mattresses under $1,000, making it less likely to shrink in time. For that reason, it’s better for people who weigh over 200 pounds.
The thick, quilted cover is cushier and more substantial than the sock-like covers on most foam mattresses, and that cover makes the memory foam layer beneath feel less squishy.
As you’d expect with memory foam beds the Loom and Leaf reduces motion better as compared to the innerspring Saatva Classic.Zenhaven is a 100% foam mattress. Zenhaven consists mostly of latex. Particularly Talalay latex, which is made from the plant’s milky sap. It is incredibly tough. Talalay is more flexible than Dunlop latex and is usually found in cheaper latex mattresses we’ve tried.
The Zenhaven can be flippable (the Luxury Plush side feels moderately firm, while it’s Gentle Firm side feels a slightly firmer) It could prove beneficial if you’re unsure what you prefer or if your needs change with time.
This isn’t a traditional soft mattress, but it provides a comfortable cushion, excellent edge support, as well as a mild springiness.
Given its innate durability and its suppleness, the Zenhaven will be suitable for people who weigh more than 200 pounds. Saatva Reviews 2016
Saatva’s portfolio of beds-many with a choice of firmness levels and catering to almost every comfort preference-includes:
- Saatva Classic (innerspring)
- Loom & Leaf (all foam)
- Zenhaven (all latex)
- Saatva Latex Hybrid (latex with coils)
- Solaire (a mattress with air chambers that can be adjusted)
- Saatva HD (a latex-coil hybrid designed for sleepers who weigh between 300-500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil hybrid for children ages 3-12)
We haven’t yet taken a deep dive into what we consider to be the “natural” claims of Saatva or of the other “eco-friendly” companies.
We do know that the company makes use of thistle or organic wool as a fire retardant (as opposed to fiberglass or chemicals) as well as only natural cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its cover.
Like other online mattress companies, Saatva touts such extras as zones for “optimal spinal support” We’re not as than thrilled with these extras and more appreciative of Saatva’s responsive customer service as well as its long-lasting coils and foams. Saatva Reviews 2016
Saatva Video Review
Who it’s for:The Saatva Classic is likely to suit those who like a soft (but not overly bulky) top layer and a sturdy, resilient feel. The Luxury Firm variant (Saatva’s “Medium” offering) We tested it will be suitable for the back, sidestomach and side-sleepers. The softer Plush Soft version caters primarily to side-sleepers and the Firm version, for stomach and back-sleepers.
What it feels like:We tested the Luxury Firm version of the Saatva Classic, the model with the most popularity-and discovered it to be soft to the touch, and has good rebound and support. It begins with a squarely medium-firm feel, but it becomes softer after a break-in period of a few months.
What we likeabout it:The Saatva Classic is among the very few innerspring mattresses you can buy online with the ease that is often associated with purchasing an inflatable foam mattress. It has 416 strong, sturdy coils at the base, for support, and 884 individually wrapped, more-pliable coils that are stacked over top to provide pressure relief. There’s a slice of memory foam included in the mix, though the actual cushioning comes from a 3-inch polyfoam-and-fiber Euro top (an extra layer of cushion sewn underneath the top). The result is a soft and comfortable appeal-supportive, resilient, and with a plushness that doesn’t feel overwhelmingly billowy.
We tested the 14 1/2 -inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm in a group test of mattresses with innersprings (it’s also available in 11 1/2 inches) and it racked up the second highest number of top-rated polls (nine from 39 test participants) in the $1,000-$2,000 range (which comprised the Avocado, the Parachute, and the first-place WinkBed). Five of those nine testers were awestruck by it more than the Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses in the test that day, including those which cost twice as much as the Saatva Classic. Two of the nine testers selected it as their second favorite overall.
In the case of the test at home, I looked forward to sleeping in this bed each night. I don’t like an overly billowy bed, so I appreciated that the Classic’s Euro top felt to me like just the perfect amount of cuddling. The bed is bouncy, but not so much that my husband’s rolling over made me wake up. To me, the feeling of buoyancy was worth the sacrifice in motion-isolation.
At around $1,600 when it’s not on sale (though it often is) The Saatva Classic is the least expensive innerspring mattress we’ve tested that feels thick and has a touch of luxury. We also love the fact that you can pick from three different levels of firmness: Plush Luxurious Firm, Soft or Firm. This means you’ll find a good fit regardless of what 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 moving companies (so that the “new mattresses smell” has already dissipated in the factory and while in transit) Also, this “white glove” delivery service is completely free. The company provides a generous 180-day trial, as well as a 15-year warranty.
The things we do not likeabout: If you don’t like an extremely bouncy mattress or are insensitive to your partner’s movements while in bed, you probably won’t like the Saatva Classic. While those coils at the top have been individually wrapped the lower ones aren’t. therefore, the bed offers some motion transfer than our other innerspring choices, such as that of the WinkBed. If you’re not a fan of any kind of bounce, you’re better off with Saatva’s Loom & Leaf.
Saatva Classic is a great mattress for couples. Saatva Classic also requires a period of time to break in. When we first tested the mattress in 2018 it was medium-firm. one year and a half later, we discovered that it softened small amount, but in a pleasant manner (at least for me). This is 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 less than 200 pounds) wanted more support in the Luxury Firm. He might have seen it in the Firm version, but we haven’t tested the technology yet, so we can’t confirm it. We are not overly impressed with zones because people are of various sizes and shapes and they might sprawl in ways that don’t coincide with the patterns of zoning.
The foam densities in the Saatva Classic are less than those of the Loom & Leaf that is the company’s foam mattress offering. Although company representatives wouldn’t divulge the details, we were told that memory foam weighs at least 3 pounds per cubic foot and that the density of the 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 in an innerspring mattress and particularly one that’s priced in this range. Contrary to foam mattresses this mattress’s steel coils provide extra support and quilting could help prevent body impressions.
But as the following Reddit post suggests, some sleepers have had better results on their Saatva mattresses over many years than others. We believe this is based on the size and shape of the person sleeping on it. Similar to all Euromattress – also known as a pillow-top mattress, the more you weigh, the more you risk seeing sagging and imprints as time passes.
So you’ll want to rotate your mattress diligently at least once every six months, and then sleep all over the mattress.
Saatva Classic top owner-review feedback
We could find only 39 high-quality owner reviews (those that weren’t fake or vague and were published recently, between 2019 and 2020). While the sample size is rather small, it’s worth noting that almost 30% of the favorable reviews praised Saatva’s customer support. This is more than what we’ve seen from other mattress brands online.
We also observed that six reviewers had mentioned sagging as the cause of their discomfort. One of these reviewers weighed more than 200 pounds while the others weighed less than that or didn’t say. The majority of them had owned the mattress for over a year at the time of their review. This indicates that turning the mattress is essential and heavier individuals who enjoy innersprings might consider a mattress with intrinsically more-durable latex foam, like the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Saatva Reviews 2016
Saatva Loom & Leaf
Who it’s for: This all foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who like a memory foam that cradles instead of encasing them in a slow, sinky hug. The more relaxed version is a good choice for those who sleep on their sides. This version, called Firm is intended to be used by stomach- or back-sleepers. People who weigh more than 200 pounds could be able to find the Firm version to be more comfortable over the Relaxed version.
What it feels like: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 more firm.
We like: The 12-inch thick Loom & Leaf comes with a durable, quilted, and sturdy cover, similar to the one you’d get on a good innerspring mattress (by comparison, most memory-foam mattresses are made of sock-like, thin covers). The cover is made of foam padding, which brings more depth to the normally one-note squishiness of cheaper memory-foam mattresses. I slept on the Relaxed Firm at home for more than an entire week and liked that it was cuddly and substantial in the same way. My husband, who loves mattresses that are firm and weighs just less than 200 pounds, which is 70 pounds more than me-felt it was too soft.
Whereas most online mattresses have a memory-foam density in the 3-pounds-per-cubic-foot range, the Loom & Leaf’s top layer has a 4-pounds-per-cubic-foot density with a gel-infused layer meant to assist with cooling (though cooling features like gel and perforations tend to have minimal impact). The mattress also has a 5-pounds-per-cubic-foot memory-foam layer underneath that top layer. With these specifications, we think this mattress is less likely to slump or form body indentions than cheaper foam mattresses, even for those who weigh more than 200 pounds (though it may not be suitable for those who weigh more than 250 pounds; see reviews from owners below). Like all foam mattresses, this one provides excellent motion isolation.
In 2020, we compared in 2020 the Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses that cost more than $1000) and found that twenty-one out of 29 users prefer to the Loom & Leaf. “It felt softer” was a common reason; a few said it was less “cushioned.” When we tested it with the Casper Wave in 2019 and the results were less unified (18 in favor of the Wave; sixteen for the Loom & Leaf). People who went with the Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more fitting” feeling or the quilting’s texture while those who went with the Casper Wave described the Wave as having more support and that the Loom & Leaf as making the feel of being “stuck.”
We also appreciate our appreciation that Loom & Leaf, like all of the Saatva Company’s mattresses, is delivered without boxes, by movers. It doesn’t require you to let it air out, as you would the majority of mattresses that are boxed; off-gassing has likely already been done within the manufacturing facility.
What we don’t like: We wish Saatva offered a firmness level between Relaxed Firm and Firm. two levels appear to be to be at least a couple of degrees from each other. While the Loom & Leaf has better edge support than some of the more well-known online models (such like the Leesa and the Casper), it isn’t as sturdy 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 that is featured in the top layer, I did sleep a little warm on this mattress, which was surprising considering that I’m always cold. But given that it was in the middle of winter, I didn’t mind the cold at all. The tiny holes designed for cooling might compromise the longevity of the foam, but likely only a little. Given that it is the Loom & Leaf has a top-layer memory-foam density of 4 tons per cubic foot it will remain more durable than your standard $1000 or less online foam mattress.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We only found 16 high-quality, recent user reviews for this model of the Loom & Leaf. Like similar to the Saatva Classic, good customer service stands out from the positive reviews. In 2019 and 2020, more reviewers described this Loom & Leaf as “too firm” than “too too soft.” However it’s not easy to draw conclusions about its texture. A lot of reviewers did not specify if they had ordered the Relaxed Firm or 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 reviews on Reddit about this Relaxed Firm version not being firm enough for people who weigh between 250 pounds. If this is the case, then consider using the Firm version (though, again, it’s very stiff) or it could be the the Tempur-Adapt (which is also made of dense foam but a more-distinct memory-foam hug). If you weigh more than 200 pounds, consider an alternative like the Zenhaven Zenhaven, which is constructed with intrinsically more-durable latex foam. Saatva Reviews 2016
Does it merit our recommendation? Yes.
Who’s it for: This latex foam Zenhaven will suit those who sleep in any position, but especially those who prefer a soft cushion that doesn’t give the “sunk-in” sensation. It’s also great for those of all weights and sizes, including those who weigh over 200 pounds.
What it feels like: This foam mattress is flippable and comes with handles that allow you to pick between two options: Its Luxury Plush side is at the gentle side of the medium-firm spectrum, and it’s good for side-sleepers. Its Gentle Firm side offers a slightly firmer feel (the company says it’s about 20 percent firmer, which sounds right to us).
What we like: Zenhaven Zenhaven comprises of two latex layers (one that is a zoned one for lower-back support and pressure points although this might not be beneficial in the light of your weight and position on your mattress). Latex is a kind of foam made from the milky sap the rubber tree and is stronger than polyurethane foam or memory foam, so we believe that this mattress is durable for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
We like that the Zenhaven is specifically made out of Talalay latex, which feels more soft than Dunlop latex commonly found in stiffer, less expensive latex mattresses, such as the Sleep On Latex Pure Green. The luxury Plush as well as the Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven feel supple and not flexible. The whole bed is also more comfortable than beds made mostly with Dunlop latex.
I lay upon the Zenhaven for a few months. I personally prefer a more-pillowy feel (like that of the Saatva Classic) however, the Luxury Plush side of the Zenhaven was becoming more appealing to me. After breaking it in for a few weeks, I came to appreciate its soft, slightly springy surface and cushioned cradle.
My 10-year-old son also likes jumping on it, and the Zenhaven’s motion isolation doesn’t prevent me from feeling it. However, it’s sufficient that I don’t notice my husband’s movements during the night. Edge support on the Zenhaven is slightly better than that of most foam mattresses, and even on the Loom & Leaf.
The husband of my friend, who is less than 200 pounds and rests with his back on, finds that the Zenhaven to be more solid and attractive than the memory foam Loom & Leaf the Relaxed firm as well as the Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is delivered by movers, not shipped in a container, so it’s less likely to emit that fresh-mattress smell to your home. You can choose between the more soft luxury Plush side as well as the Gentle Firm side as your preferences and needs change, or you don’t know which level you’d like. Because the mattress is heavy (the queen is 130 weight), Saatva will send moving experts to help you out by completing a single “courtesy” switch.
We don’t like:Although the Zenhaven has a more-supple feel than many other online all-latex mattresses but it’s less luxurious as comparable innersprings and traditional foam mattress because it’s not traditionally “fluffy.” The nil 2 (of 29) staff members who liked it better than the other models in our 2020 test of the hybrid and foam mattresses stated that they enjoyed that it was supportive, and they thought it would last for a long duration. (In the latex category, most staffers in our blind test preferred the PranaSleep Lotus Asana 6 in Plush, which has a latex-polyurethane-foam construction and costs over $1,000 more than the Zenhaven.)
Since the Zenhaven is extremely heavy and has two sides, it needs to rest on a sturdy, good-quality platform bed or boxspring and frame in good shape. Saatva sells a boxspring foundation (which is available in two heights) as well as a frame made of steel.
Zenhaven top review of owner feedback
We were able to find only 18 high-quality owner reviews for Zenhaven. It’s a tiny sample to draw any firm, non-subjective conclusions, beyond satisfactory customer service. However, we did find one particularly insightful blog post from a long-term owner with no weight (though he did claim that he was 6 feet 4 inches high).
He said that after a year an half, he appreciated its cushion and resilience however, as he hadn’t been rotating the mattressregularly, he noticed a hip impression and when he began rotating the mattress every six months, he said the impression was gone. We’ll update this section once we’ve collected more high-quality reviews. Saatva Reviews 2016
Saatva Latex Hybrid
What it’s designed to be used forThe Saatva Latex Hybrid is ideal to those who value the durability of their mattress over lavishness. It’s great for back and stomach sleepers, and for people who move around often. It’s durable enough for most people, not just 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’s distinctly buoyant and slightly bouncy, and has some cushioning and cradling. It’s certainly not luxurious however, and it’s more comfortable to sleep on the mattress rather than in it.
What we love:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is constructed with high-quality materials and techniques for construction. The quilted top, made from cotton and a layer of wool (a natural flame-repellant) is hand-tufted onto the layers below it. Tufting (commonly found on furniture or traditional in-sofa mattresses) is a type of strong stitching which holds the layers together and is more durable than glue and eliminates the chemical smell that adhesives can emit. The peaks and valleys made by tufting can reduce any visible body impressions. This is more than the smooth-topped, sock-covered 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 pricey Casper Wave, which uses less). Latex is naturally more breathable and durable than memory foams, or polyurethane. Talalay latex, which is also used in Zenhaven, is a more breathable and soft-feeling foam in comparison to the Dunlop varieties that are typically found in low-cost mattresses made of latex.
Wirecutter’s supervisory Editor Wendy Schley tested the Saatva Latex Hybrid for a few months in her home. She found it to be extremely supportive and durable. “It seems almost buoyant,” she said. “There’s some cushioning to it but it’s not luxurious in a soft way.” Wendy found that the mattress has a buoyant, springy feel reminiscent of an innerspring. She was never stuck. However, the latex foam offered some motion-simplification. Its edge support can be described as great, due to thick (13 3/4 gauge) 8-inch coils that run along the edges.
Thanks to its breathable materials (the Talalay latex, cotton cover, and wool layer in the top) and the coils in the middle, this Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all-foam mattresses and hybrids that are made of polyfoams. Wendy, who tends 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 yet tested it in the summertime.
We haven’t found enough high-quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to glean any trends, but we’ll keep you updated when we do.
We don’t love: Though the coils are individually wrapped but there’s still a hint of motion transfer due to, it’s just that, 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 the other hybrid mattresses, the The Tempur-Adapt as well as the Leesa Hybrid, that have more than 1,000). When a mattress has fewer coils, it can mean that the mattress won’t conform as well in your shape. But the firmness of the latex layer more than makes the up.
As Wendy discovered that night, it’s true that the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an ahhh type of mattress. It’s as if it’s lifting you, rather than nestling you in. And it may not provide enough cushioning to give enough pressure relief to side sleepers as well as back-sleepers who require extra cushioning for particular joints.
Wendy who sleeps on her back and side and reported that she occasionally felt sore in her shoulders and lower back following her sleep on the Saatva Latex Hybrid. If you’re looking for something more luxurious, you might be interested in one of the Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf (both come in different degrees of firmness, including those which feel more soft than the Saatva Latex).
The tufting on the Latex Hybrid is highlighted by attractive yarn tassels. They are pretty, but they are reportedly flimsy attached as some of them that were on the mattress Wendy tried to unraveled after several weeks. Saatva Reviews 2016
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
The Saatva Solaire has an adjustable air bed made of foam on the top of air chambers which can be programmed to your preferred firmness level using the remote. We haven’t yet tried the Solaire yet however, we’ll update this guide when we’ve had the chance to. While we wait, let us talk about the information we have.
Saatva launched the Solaire in the year 2019 to be able to compete with the Sleep Number’s high-end i8 mattress. In addition to having air chambers as well as an integrated remote, the Solaire is equipped with a pillow top, a Talalay Latex Layer, as well as a gel-infused memory-foam layer. It’s also cheaper by $650 that the Sleep Number I8.
The remote has 50 settings, compared with Sleep Number’s 20 settings, but in reality, we’re not sure if anyone really needs more than that. At a glance, the comfort components look like they’d provide a more-curve-conforming cradle than Sleep Number’s polyurethane foam layers.
But, as always, we can’t know what we’re getting until we lay on the mattress. The Solaire’s Talalay latex components suggest long-lasting however, since Sleep Number doesn’t divulge information about its foam materials, we can’t declare that one mattress is more durable than the other.
Whether you choose either a twin, a king, or something in between You can purchase this Solaire in any size you want as an ordinary model. If you prefer the queen or King and want to upgrade, you can choose the Upper-Flex queen, king, or split king. All of them have dual air chambers, which means that sleepers can choose their own firmness levels.
The standard model works on any bed frame (including adjustable bases). However, the Upper-Flex queen, King, as well as the split king option are designed to be specifically compatible with adjustable bases that permit both sides to be adjusted independently.
The Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, such as the Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Upper-Flex. With the Upper-Flex frame, couples can use the remote to adjust their shoulders and heads separately (for example, one person can lie flat to sleep while the other one sits and reads a book).
The Upper-Flex frame that is designed to fit the split-king Solaire can also allow both people to raise their lower bodies independently. We couldn’t locate enough high-quality owner reviews to include here however we’ll be updating this guide when we’re in a position to try the bed out ourselves and gather additional reviews. Saatva Reviews 2016
In May 2019, Saatva introduced the Saatva HD which is a hybrid mattress specifically designed for those who weigh between 300 and 500 pounds. We haven’t tested this product yet but we’re planning to do so in the future.
Similar to Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf the Saatva HD has a pillowy, quilted top layer, however, the thick layer of foam underneath and coils appear to be able to hold more weight.We’re especially curious about the top of the pillow in the HD because experts told us that for people who weigh more pillows can be particularly prone to indentations.
The HD’s other components, however, seem promising as far as durability is concerned: There is a latex layer, which is typically stronger than memory foam, as well as a memory-foam layer, which has a density of 5 pounds per cubic foot (more than the 4-pounds-per-cubic-foot minimum that experts typically recommend for people who weigh over 200 pounds). Furthermore the HD’s 12 1/2-gauge coils are more dense than the coils in the other models of the company and those of its rivals, such as the Big Fig.
However, these aren’t the only things that impact a mattress’s durability, and durability alone isn’t enough to make a good mattress. We plan on investigating the issues in a forthcoming guide to mattresses for people who weigh more than 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly recommends” that you put this mattress on a solid platform bed that has vertical center support.
If not, they advised us that you must buy the HD along with its special “high durability” wood-slat foundation.Also, we found a few positive reviews from users. When we’ve collected enough information to identify any patterns and have the ability for a mattress test, we’ll give an update. Saatva Reviews 2016
It’s called the Saatva Youth is the company’s new coil-and-foam bed for kids is more expensive than mattresses for adults. However, it is double-sided, featuring a coil layer sandwiched between two foam layers, so the mattress can be able to grow with the kid.
Its first layer is designed for kids ages 3 through 7, and it consists of polyfoam that is zoned, with densities ranging between 1.4 up to 1.8 kg per cubic foot.
On the other side, meant for children older than (the company claims between ages 8 and 12) the foam density ranges from 1.5 pounds per cubic foot, and is slightly softer because it’s paired with the more firm side of the coil unit. The 13 3/4 -gauge coils range from 330 to a twin to 350 for a twin-XL, and 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. For those who prefer natural materials, might appreciate that the mattress is wrapped in a thick, quilted organic cotton cover. It also uses thistle pulp (as instead of chemical sprays or fiberglass) as the flame retardant. We haven’t yet tested this mattress as we haven’t found any reviews online. We’re hoping to evaluate it for a possible guide on mattresses for children.
The Saatva Youth The company’s new bed made of coils and foams for children is more expensive than 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 designed for kids ages 3 through 7 and is comprised of polyfoam zones with density ranging from 1.4 up to 1.8 pounds per cubic foot.
The second side is intended for older kids (the company says ages 8 through 12) the foam density is 1.5 grams per cubic foot, and is slightly more softer due to it being paired with the firmer part of the coil. The 13 3/4-gauge coils range from 330 to 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.

But we hope to assess it in the future for a guide to mattresses for kids. Saatva Reviews 2016
