In the crowded field of online mattresses, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. Saatva ships its mattresses via trucks, not in boxes. Even though, as with other sellers on the internet, it has rapidly expanded its line, Saatva remains focused on offering a variety of “luxury” models that are all costing, with the exception of it’s Youth model, more than $1500 (for the queen size). Saatva Reviews Consumer Reports
Sure, there’s a collection 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 options that are available from an online business.
In the last three years, our team has tested our Innerspring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom and Leaf, as well as the all-latex Zenhaven which have all 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 used Saatva’s Saatva Mid-Latex Hybrid, and we’ve researched the components and construction of the other beds in Saatva’s lineup.The majority of online mattresses are foams or hybrids, therefore it’s no surprise that the Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the few innerspring mattresses that you can purchase online.
Pocketed coils give Saatva Classic Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top. The extra soft top makes it more comfortable. As with the rest of Saatva’s mattresses they are delivered by movers. Saatva Classic is delivered by moving trucks, not in boxes. Saatva also offers a generous 180-day trial period and easy returns.
The all-foam Loom & Leaf is constructed with more dense memory foam than the majority of mattresses under $1,000, making it less likely to shift in time. For that reason, it’s more suitable for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
The quilted, thick cover is cushier and more robust than the sock-like covers of most foam mattresses and it makes the memory foam underneath feel less soft and squishy.
Like you would expect from memory foam beds The Loom and Leaf reduces movement better that those with innersprings like the Saatva Classic.All-foam Zenhaven consists mostly of latex, specifically Talalay latex. It’s made of the rubber tree’s milky sap, and is intrinsically robust. Talalay is less stiff than Dunlop latex that is commonly found in the less expensive latex mattresses that we’ve tried.
The Zenhaven can be flippable (the Luxury Plush side feels moderately firm, while the Gentle Firm side feels a little more firm), which might prove useful if you’re not certain what you prefer or if your needs change with time.
It’s not a typical soft mattress, but it has a soft cushion, excellent edge support, as well as a subtle springiness.
Because of its durability and its suppleness, the Zenhaven is a good choice for those who weigh more than 200 pounds. Saatva Reviews Consumer Reports
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 specifically designed for those who weigh 300 to 500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil hybrid designed 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 of others “eco-friendly” brand names.
We do know that the company uses thistle or organic wool as a fire retardant (as opposed to chemicals or fiberglass) as well as only natural cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its cover.
As do other online mattress companies, Saatva touts such extras as zoned layers for “optimal spinal support”; we’re less satisfied with these features, and are more impressed with Saatva’s quick customer service and durable foams and coils. Saatva Reviews Consumer Reports
Saatva Video Review
Who it’s to be used forThe Saatva Classic is likely to suit people who prefer a cushy (but not overly billowy) top layer and a sturdy, resilient feel. Its Luxury Firm variant (Saatva’s “Medium” offer) that we tried will be suitable for people who are 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 found it to be cushy to the touch, and has good rebound and support. It starts out with the feel of a firm, square shape, but it softens slightly after a break-in period of a few months.
What we like:The Saatva Classic is among the very few innerspring mattresses you can buy online with the ease that is 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 on top to ease pressure. There’s a slice of memory foam included in the mix, though the real cushioning comes from a 3-inch polyfoam-and-fiber Euro top (an extra layer of cushion that is sewn beneath the top). The resultant feel is broad in appeal: it’s a bit bouncy, resilient, and supportive with a softness that doesn’t feel overwhelmingly billowy.
We tested the 14 1/2-inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm in a 2021 group test that included mattresses with innersprings (it’s additionally available in 11 1/2″) It was the top choice, with the second-highest number of top-pick scores (nine from 39 testers) in the category of $1,000 to $2,000 (which includes three other mattresses: the Avocado as well as the Parachute and the top-ranked WinkBed). Five of those nine testers were awestruck by their Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses tested in the same test, including those that cost twice as expensive; two of the nine testers chose the Saatva Classic as their second-favorite overall.
In the case of the test at home I was looking at the prospect of sleeping in this bed each night. I’m not a fan overly billowy bed, so I liked that the Classic’s Euro top provided what seemed to me like just the ideal amount of cuddling. The bed has some bounce but not so much that my husband’s roll woke me up-to me, the feeling of buoyancy was worth the price in motion isolation.
It’s priced at around $1,600 when 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 like the fact that you have the option of choosing between three levels of firmness-Plush Soft, Luxury Firm or Firm, so you’ll be able to find a good fit regardless of the position you sleep in. In contrast to the more sluggish WinkBed Another option from the innerspring mattress guide Saatva Classic is Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by the movers (so that the “new mattress smell” has already disappeared in the factory and while in transit) Also, this “white glove” delivery is absolutely free. The company provides a generous 180-day trial period along with a 15-year warranty.
We don’t like: If you’re not a fan of the bounce of a mattress, or are insensitive to your partner’s movements, you probably won’t like the Saatva Classic. While the top coils are individually wrapped, the lower ones aren’t. therefore, the bed offers some motion transfer than our other innerspring picks like those from the WinkBed. If you’re not a fan of any kind of bounce, you’re better off with Saatva’s Loom & Leaf.
It is worth noting that the Saatva Classic also requires a bit of break-in time. When we first tried the mattress, in 2018, it felt medium-firm; one year and a two-thirds of a year later, we found that it’s softened a little but in a nice manner (at least to me). This is not an “Soft” mattress, however; those who prefer it might be interested in this Plush Soft version, which we haven’t yet tried.
While the company claims to have an “active Lumbar Zone” technology for “additional back support” my spouse (who weighs in the vicinity of 200 pounds) wanted more support in the Luxury Firm. He might have discovered that feature in the version for Firm, however, we haven’t tried the technology yet, so we aren’t able to know for sure. We are not particularly impressed by zones, as people are of different sizes and heights, and they may spread in ways that don’t coincide with the patterns of zoning.
The foam densities of the Saatva Classic are less than those of the Loom & Leaf, the company’s foam-mattress offering. While representatives from the company wouldn’t reveal details, we were informed that the memory foam weighs at least 3 pounds in cubic feet, and that the density of the polyfoam of 1 1/2 pounds for each cubic foot.
These aren’t as high than the density of the Loom & Leaf, but the specifications are standard in an innerspring mattress and especially ones in this price range. In contrast to foam mattresses, these mattresses’ steel coils offer an additional level of support, and the quilting could help prevent body impressions.
However, as the following Reddit post indicates, some sleepers have had more success on their Saatva mattresses over the course of many years than others. We believe this is based on the size and shape of the person sleeping on it. Like all Europillows, or mattresses with a pillow top the heavier you weigh the higher the chance of getting imprints and sagging over time.
Therefore, you should rotate your mattress diligently at least once every six months and sleep all over your mattress.
Saatva Classic top owner-review feedback
We found only 39 owner reviews that are of high-quality (those that weren’t untrue or unclear, and that were posted recently, in 2019 and 2020). Although the sample size is relatively small, we think it’s notable that nearly 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 noticed that six reviewers had mentioned sagging as the cause of their discomfort. One of these reviewers was weighing more than 200lbs and the other had a lower weight or didn’t mention. All but one had been using the mattress for more than one year by the time of their review. This suggests that rotating the mattress is vital for heavier individuals who prefer innersprings might want to look at the option of a mattress made from more durable latex foam, like that of the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Saatva Reviews Consumer Reports
Saatva Loom & Leaf
What it’s designed to be used for This all foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who like a memory foam that holds instead of encasing them in a soft, slow hug. The soft Relaxed Firm model is a good choice for those who sleep on their sides. This version, called Firm is made to be used by stomach- or back-sleepers. If you weigh over 200 pounds may also find the Firm to be more comfortable over the Relaxed version.
What it feels like:The Relaxed Firm is an average-firm mattress that supports you without pulling you in. the Firm (which we’ve only tried 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 find on an innerspring mattress (by contrast, the majority of memory foam mattresses are made of sock-like, thin covers). That cover contains its own foam padding, which adds an additional dimension to the usually simple squishiness of memory foam mattresses. I slept on the Relaxed Firm at home for more than a week, and I enjoyed the fact that it was soft and sturdy but also firm. Our husband who likes firm mattresses and weighs just under 200 pounds-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. Given those specs we believe that this mattress is less likely to sag or develop body indents as opposed to other foam mattresses even for those who weigh more than 200 pounds (though it may not be suitable for those who weigh greater than 250 pounds; see reviews from owners, below). As with all foam mattresses, this one also offers quality motion isolation.
We compared the Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses that cost more than $1000) and found that 20 of the 29 respondents preferred that of the Loom & Leaf. “It felt softer” was a popular reason; a few said it was better “cushioned.” When we test it with it against the Casper Wave in 2019, the results were less unified (18 for the Wave sixteen for it; 16 for the Loom & Leaf). People who went with more of the Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more fitting” feel or appreciated the texture of its quilting while those who went with more of the Casper Wave described the Wave as having more support and that the Loom & Leaf as making them feel more “stuck.”
We are also pleased it that Loom & Leaf, like all Saatva Company’s mattresses, is delivered in a box, and by moving trucks. It doesn’t require you to blow it out like you do with numerous mattresses in boxes; the majority off-gassing will have been done within the manufacturing facility.
The thing we don’t like about HTML0: We wish Saatva offered a firmness level between Firm and Relaxed Firm. The two levels seem at least a few gradations between them. And although it is true that the Loom & Leaf has better edge support than some of the more popular online models (such as the Leesa or the Casper), it’s not as durable as the Hybrid (like those like the Leesa Hybrid or the Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom & Leave’s cooler gel, as well as its pin core (punctured) design touted in the top layer I slept a bit warmer on this mattress which was a surprise since I’m usually cold. Given that it was in the middle of winter, I didn’t care the cold at all. The tiny holes made to cool the foam could compromise the longevity in the mattress, but likely only a little. Because the Loom & Leaf has a top layer memory-foam density of four grams 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 only found 16 recently updated, top-quality reviewers of this model of the Loom & Leaf. Similar to the Saatva Classic, the quality of customer service has stood out from the positive reviews. In 2019 , and in 2020 reviews, more people said that their experience with the Loom & Leaf as “too firm” rather than “too smooth.” But it’s difficult to make a conclusion about its texture. Many reviewers didn’t specify whether they’d purchased either the Relaxed Firm or Firm.
Also, we noticed that more seasoned reviewers often describe the Loom & Leaf as too soft or even too loose or even. For instance, we found reviews on Reddit about the Relaxed Firm version being sagging for those who weigh around 250 pounds; if this is you, you might consider the Firm version (though it’s extremely firm) or the The Tempur-Adapt (which also features dense foam but a more-distinct memory foam hug). If you weigh more than 200 pounds, you should look into an alternative like the Zenhaven that is made of more durable latex foam. Saatva Reviews Consumer Reports
We recommend it? Yes.
Who’s it to be used for Its latex foam Zenhaven is a good choice for people that sleep at any angle, particularly those who like a supple cushion, but without that “sunk-in” sensation. It’s also suitable for all types of people, including those who weigh over 200 pounds.
How it feels: The foam mattress can be flipped, and it has handles to help you easily select between two choices The Luxury Plush side is on the soft side of the medium-firm range, and it’s good for side-sleepers. This side’s Gentle Firm side offers a slightly firmer feel (the firm claims it’s around 20 percent firmer, which sounds right to us).
What we like: Zenhaven Zenhaven is made up of two layers of latex (one of which is zoned for pressure points and lower-back support, though this may or might not be beneficial according to your body size and the position you sleep on your mattress). Latex is a kind of foam made by the milky sap of the rubber tree and it is much stronger than polyurethane foam or memory foam, and so we think that this mattress is sturdy for people who weigh over 200 pounds.
We are impressed this mattress because the Zenhaven is made specifically out of Talalay latex which is more flexible than Dunlop latex commonly found in less expensive, stiffer latex mattresses, like the Sleep on Latex Pure Green. The luxury Plush along with the Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven feel springy without being flexible. The whole bed is also more comfortable than mattresses made of Dunlop latex.
I lay upon the Zenhaven for a few months. Personally, I prefer a more pillowy feeling (like it’s counterpart, the Saatva Classic), but 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 playing on it, and the Zenhaven’s motion isolation isn’t a barrier to me experiencing that. However, it’s sufficient that I don’t feel the need to notice my husband’s movements in the evening. Its edge support can be slightly superior to that of many foam mattresses, including on the Loom & Leaf.
The husband of my friend, who weighs barely 200 pounds and usually rests with his back on, likes Zenhaven to be more comfortable and appealing. Zenhaven as more substantial and appealing than the memory-foam Loom & Leaf Relaxed Soft as well as the Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is shipped by movers, and not in a container, so it’s less likely to emit that new-mattress smell in your home. It’s possible to switch between the 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 level you’d like. Due to the weight of the mattress (the queen weighs at 125 pounds), Saatva will send movers to help you with a one-time “courtesy” flip.
The things we don’t love about HTML0:Although the Zenhaven has more supple and soft feel than other online all-latex mattresses but it’s less luxurious than similarly priced innersprings and traditional foam mattress since it’s not typically “fluffy.” It was the only 2 (of 29) staffers who were more satisfied than the other models in our test of 2020 foam and hybrid mattresses stated that they were pleased the fact that it was supportive and that they believed it would last for a long period of 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 the bed must be set on a solid, high-quality platform bed or a frame and boxspring in good condition. 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 locate just 18 reviews from owners of high-quality for the Zenhaven. This is a small sample size to offer any conclusive, objective, and non-subjective information in addition to excellent customer service. However, we did discover a particularly descriptive review written by a more long-term owner of unknown weight (though he did claim that the height was 6 feet 4 inches tall).
He claimed that after a year a half, he still loved its cushion and durability, but because he hadn’t been rotating the mattress, he noticed a hip impression and when he began rotating the mattress each six months, he claimed the impression disappeared. This section will be updated when we’ve collected more top-quality reviews. Saatva Reviews Consumer Reports
Saatva Latex Hybrid
What it’s designed intended forThe Saatva Latex Hybrid is most suited to those who value durability over extravagantness. It’s ideal for stomach- and back-sleepers as well as people who move around frequently. It’s designed to last for most people, including 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, somewhat bouncy and with some cushioning and cradling. It’s definitely not plush but you sleep more on the mattress rather than inside it.
We like:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is constructed with high-quality materials and techniques for construction. The quilted top, made out of cotton, and wool (a natural fire retardant) is hand-tufted to the layers below it. Tufting (commonly found on furniture or traditional in-sofa mattresses) is a form of strong stitching which holds the layers together, which some argue has more durability than glue and eliminates the chemical smell that is often associated with adhesives. The peaks and valleys produced by tufting can aid in minimizing any visible body impressions. This is more than the smooth-topped, sock-covered mattresses you typically see on hybrids that are sold online.
While most hybrids put the polyurethane layer over coils, the Saatva Latex Hybrid uses 3 inches of Talalay latex foam (which is plenty, when compared with the pricey Casper Wave, which uses half as much). Latex is naturally more durable and breathable than memory foams or polyurethane. Talalay latex, which is also used in the Zenhaven model, is a much more breathable, supple and comfortable foam in comparison to the Dunlop type that is commonly found in low-cost latex mattresses.
Wirecutter 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, but it’s not luxurious in a plush way.” Wendy found that the mattress has a buoyant and springy sensation that was reminiscent of an innerspring. She also never felt stuck in place-but the latex foam did provide some motion-simplification. The edge support is excellent due to the large (13 3/4 gauge) 8-inch coils around the edges.
Thanks to its breathable materials (the Talalay latex, cotton cover and wool layer on the top) and the coils, the Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all foam mattresses or hybrids that are made of polyfoams. Wendy is a person who likes to have hot sleep, discovered that the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be significantly cooler than other mattresses, although we haven’t yet tested it in the summertime.
We haven’t spotted enough good-quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to glean any trends, but we’ll update when we do.
What we don’t like about HTML0: Though the coils are individually wrapped however, there’s a bit of motion transfer, due to it’s just that, coils. This isn’t as significant as Motion transfer found on Saatva Classic, but it’s much more prominent when compared to all-foam models such as the Loom & Leaf or Zenhaven.
A queen-size Latex Hybrid contains 789 coils (fewer than the other hybrid mattresses, such as the The Tempur-Adapt and the Leesa Hybrid, which have around 1,000). When a mattress has fewer coils, it can mean that it won’t be able to be as comfortable to your body. However, the supple feel that the layer of latex makes up for that.
As Wendy discovered her experience, it’s true that the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an Ahhh kind of mattress. It’s as if it’s lifting you, instead of tucking you in. It may not offer enough cushioning to provide adequate pressure relief to side-sleepers, or even to back-sleepers who require extra cushioning for specific joints.
Wendy, sleeping on both her side and back and reported that she occasionally felt sore in her lower back and shoulders when she slept on Saatva Latex Hybrid. If you’re looking for something a bit more comfortable, you may want to consider one of the Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf (both are available in a variety of degree of firmness, with some which feel more soft than the Saatva Latex).
The tufting on the Latex Hybrid is finished with attractive yarn tassels. They look lovely, but are reportedly flimsy attached to the mattress, and one of the tassels on the mattress Wendy tested unraveled after some time. Saatva Reviews Consumer Reports
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
The Saatva Solaire has an adjustable-air bed, consisting of foam on the top of air chambers that can be set to the firmness you want using a remote. We haven’t yet tried the Solaire yet however, we’ll update this guide once we’ve had the chance to. We’ll discuss the information we have.
Saatva introduced the Solaire in 2019 to be able to compete with the Sleep Number’s high-end i8 mattress. In addition to having air chambers and remotes The Solaire is equipped with a pillow top, a Talalay latex layer, and an infused memory foam layer. It’s also cheaper by $650 that the Sleep Number I8.
The remote comes with 50 options in comparison to Sleep Number’s 20, but realistically we’re not sure whether anyone really needs that 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, of course we won’t be able to tell what we’re getting until we lay in the bed. Solaire’s Talalay latex material suggests longevity however, since Sleep Number does not provide details about the foam components, we can’t claim that one mattress will last longer than the others.
No matter if you want a twin or a king or something in between, you can order this Solaire in any size, as the standard model. If you decide to go with a queen or a King, you can upgrade to the Upper-Flex queen, King, or split king, all of which feature dual air chambers meaning that the sleepers can select their own level of firmness.
The standard model can be used on every bed frame (including bases that can be adjusted). However, the Upper-Flex queen, King and split king option are designed to work specifically on adjustable bases, which allow both sides to be adjusted independently.
The Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, including Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Upper-Flex. With the frame’s upper-flex, couples can use the remote to adjust their shoulders and head separately (for instance, one person can lay flat and sleep while the other person sits and reads the book).
The Upper-Flex frame that is designed specifically for the split king Solaire will also permit both to elevate their lower bodies separately. We couldn’t locate enough high-quality user reviews to put on this list We’ll revise this guide once we’re able try the bed out ourselves and collect more reviews. Saatva Reviews Consumer Reports
Similar to Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf Saatva HD Saatva HD has a pillowy quilted top layer however, the thick layer of foam underneath and coils allegedly support more weight.We’re particularly curious about the pillow top of the HD, because experts 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 thicker than those in the other models of the company and those of its rivals like Big Fig. Big Fig.
However, these aren’t the only things that impact the mattress’s longevity and, by itself, does not make for a desirable mattress. We’ll be looking into these issues further in an forthcoming guide to mattresses for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly strongly suggests” to place the mattress on a sturdy platform bed with a vertical center support.
In other words, Saatva representatives advised us that you should buy the HD together with its unique “high endurance” timber-slat-based foundation.We also spotted a few positive reviews from users. Once we’ve gathered enough to glean any patterns and have the ability try the mattress out, we’ll give an update. Saatva Reviews Consumer Reports
The Saatva Youth The company’s new coil-and-foam bed for kids, costs more than some mattresses designed for adults. However, it is dual-sided, with a coil layer sandwiched between two layers of foam which means that the mattress will be able to grow with the kid.
The first side is intended for kids ages 3 through 7 years old, and it is made up of zoned polyfoam with densities that range from 1.4 up to 1.8 kg per cubic foot.
The second side is meant for children older than (the company states that it’s for ages 8 through 12) the density of foam ranges from 1.5 tons per cubic feet. It’s also a bit more softer due to it being paired with the more firm side in the coil. The 13 3/4-gauge coils range from 330 in the size of a twin, up to 350 when a twin is XL. They also go up to 462 for a full.
The Saatva Youth is 10 inches thick and bunk-bed-friendly-as long as the bed’s guardrail is at least 5 inches higher than the mattress, for safety reasons. Those who prefer natural materials might appreciate that the mattress is encased in a thick, quilted organic-cotton cover and uses thistle pulp (as opposed to fiberglass or chemical sprays) to act as a flame-resistant. We haven’t yet tried this mattress as we haven’t found any online reviews. We’re hoping to evaluate it for a possible guide to mattresses for kids.
It’s called the Saatva Youth, the company’s relatively new bed made of coils and foams for children, costs more than some mattresses for grown-ups. It is however double-sided, featuring an inner coil sandwiched between two layers of foam, so the mattress can expand with the child.
The first side is designed for children aged 3 to 7, and it consists of polyfoam that is zoned, with densities that range from 1.4 up to 1.8 tons per square foot.
On the other side, designed for kids older than that (the company states that it’s for between ages 8 and 12), the foam density can be as high as 1.5 grams per cubic foot and somewhat softer because it’s paired with the more solid part of the coil. The 13 3/4-gauge coils vary 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, may appreciate the fact that the mattress is covered in a thick, quilted organic-cotton covers and utilizes thistle pulp (as as opposed to fiberglass or chemical sprays) as the flame retardant. We haven’t yet tried this mattress as we haven’t found any online reviews.
However, we’d like to test it in the future for a guide on mattresses for children. Saatva Reviews Consumer Reports
