In the crowded field of online mattresses, Saatva stands apart in fundamental ways. Saatva ships its mattresses via trucks, not in the form of a box. While, like other online sellers the company has quickly increased its inventory, Saatva remains focused on a range of “luxury” designs, all priced, with the exception of it’s Youth model, over $1,500 (for a queen). Stearns And Foster Vs Saatva
Sure, there’s a range of mattresses which are more luxurious than Saatva’s, with more coils and better materials.
But we find Saatva’s mattresses to be among the most elegant-looking and thoughtfully designed choices available from an online company.
Over the last two years, we’ve tested Saatva’s Innerspring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom and Leaf, as well as the all-latex Zenhaven, and they’ve consistently earned a spot among our top picks in our guide to the top foam mattresses and the best innerspring mattresses.
We’ve also slept on Saatva’s Saatva latex hybrid as well as researched the design and construction of the rest of the beds in Saatva’s lineup.Most online mattresses are either hybrids or foams so it’s no surprise that the Saatva Classic stands out. It’s among the few innerspring mattresses that you can purchase online.
Pocketed coils give the Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top. The extra soft top makes it more comfortable. As with the other Saatva Company mattresses, the Saatva Classic is delivered by movers, rather than in the form of a box. Saatva also offers a generous 180-day trial period and simple returns.
The all-foam Loom & Leaf is made with denser memory foam than other mattresses under $1,000, making it less likely to shrink over time. For that reason, it’s more suitable for those who weigh more than 200 pounds.
The thick, quilted cover is more cushier and robust than the sock-like covers that are found on many foam mattresses, and the cover helps the memory foam underneath feel less as squishy.
Like you would expect from a memory-foam bed The Loom and Leaf is able to limit motion better that an innerspring Saatva Classic.Zenhaven is a 100% foam mattress. Zenhaven comprises primarily of latex, specifically Talalay latex, which is made of the rubber tree’s milky sap, and is intrinsically tough. Talalay is more flexible than Dunlop latex that is commonly found in cheaper latex mattresses we’ve tried.
Zenhaven is a good choice. Zenhaven is also flippable (the Luxury Plush side feels moderately firm, while Gentle Firm feels a bit firmer). Gentle Firm side feels a little more firm) This could be beneficial if you’re unsure which one you prefer, or if your preferences change over time.
This isn’t a traditional soft mattress, but it provides a comfortable cushion, good edge support, and a mild springiness.
Due to its inherent quality and its suppleness, the Zenhaven is a good choice for those who weigh greater than 200 pounds. Stearns And Foster Vs Saatva
Saatva’s portfolio of beds-many with a choice of firmness levels and catering to almost every comfort preference-includes:
- Saatva Classic (innerspring)
- Loom & Leaf (all foam)
- Zenhaven (all latex)
- Saatva Latex Hybrid (latex with coils)
- Solaire (a Bed with adjustable air chambers)
- Saatva HD (a hybrid made of latex and coil that is made for people who weigh between 300 and 500 pounds)
- Saatva Youth (a foam-coil hybrid designed for kids ages 3 through 12)
We haven’t yet done an in-depth analysis of the “natural” claims made by Saatva or others “eco-friendly” brand names.
However, we know that Saatva uses thistle pulp or organic wool as a flame retardant (as in contrast to chemicals or fiberglass) with only organic cotton (instead of synthetic blends) in its covers.
Like other online mattress companies, Saatva touts such extras as zones for “optimal spinal support”; we’re less satisfied with these features, and are more impressed with Saatva’s customer service that is responsive and durable foams and coils. Stearns And Foster Vs Saatva
Saatva Video Review
Who it’s intended forThe Saatva Classic is likely to suit those who prefer a cushy (but not overwhelmingly billowy) top layer as well as an extremely durable, supple feel. Its Luxury Firm variant (Saatva’s “Medium” offering), which we tested will be suitable for the back, side-, and stomach-sleepers. The more softer Plush Soft version caters primarily to side-sleepers, and the Firm versioncaters for stomach- and back-sleepers.
How it feels:We tested the Luxury Firm version of the Saatva Classic-the line’s most popular option-and discovered it to be soft to the touch, and has good rebound and support. It begins with an incredibly firm feel but it becomes softer after the break-in period of about a month.
What we like:The Saatva Classic is one of the very few innerspring mattresses that you can buy online with the ease more commonly associated with purchasing an inflatable foam mattress. It has 416 strong, solid coils at its base for support with 884 wrapped individually, more-pliable coils that are stacked over top for pressure relief. There’s a slice of memory foam included in the mix, but the real cushioning comes from a 3-inch polyfoam-and-fiber Euro top (an extra layer of cushion that is sewn beneath the surface). The resultant feel is broad in appeal, being supple, supportive, and with a softness that isn’t a hefty billowy sensation.
We tried the 14 1/2 -inch Saatva Classic in Luxury Firm during a 2021 test group for innersprings (it’s offered in 11 inches), and it captured the second highest number of top-pick scores (nine out of 39 test participants) in the category of $1,000 to $2,000 (which comprised it alongside the Avocado as well as the Parachute and the top-ranked WinkBed). Five of the nine test subjects loved it more than the Saatva Classic better than any of the other mattresses on the same test which included mattresses that cost twice as expensive and two of the nine testers selected the Saatva Classic as their second choice overall.
As for the home test, I looked forward to sleeping in this bed every night. I’m not a fan overly bulky bed, so I appreciated that the Classic’s Euro top provided what seemed to me like the perfect amount of cuddling. The bed has some bounce but not so much that my husband’s rolling over woke me up-to me, the buoyed-up feel was worth the sacrifice in motion isolation.
Around $1,600 if it’s not for sale (though it often is) It’s a good value at around $1,600. Saatva Classic is the least expensive innerspring mattress we’ve tried that feels thick and luxurious. We also love the fact that you can pick from three different levels of firmness: Plush Soft, Luxury Firm, or Firm. This means you’ll get a perfect fit regardless of what sleeping position you choose to sleep in. Unlike the more-billowy WinkBed which is another option in the innerspring mattress guide, the Saatva Classic is delivered unboxed by movers (so that “new mattresses smell” is already gone from the factory and during transport) Also, this “white glove” delivery is absolutely free. Saatva offers a huge 180-day trial period, and an extended warranty of 15 years.
We don’t like: If you don’t like the bounce of a mattress, or if you’re sensitive to your sleep partner’s movements in bed, you probably won’t like Saatva Classic. Saatva Classic. While those coils at the top have been individually wrapped the bottom ones aren’t, so the bed has a bit more motion transfer than our other innerspring options including that of the WinkBed. If you’re not a fan of any bounce at all You’re better off using Saatva’s Loom & Leaf.
The Saatva Classic also requires a little bit of time to get used to. When we first tested the mattress in the year 2018 it was medium-firm. a year and a quarter later we discovered that it’s softened a small amount but in a nice manner (at at least to me). This is not the case with a “Soft” mattress, however; those who like that may want to try it out. Plush Soft version, which we haven’t tried yet.
Although the company touts an “active Lumbar Zone” technology to provide “additional back support” our husband (who weighs just under 200 pounds) wanted more support in the Luxury Firm. He might have seen that feature in the version for Firm, however, we haven’t tried it at this point, therefore we aren’t able to be sure. In general, we’re not particularly impressed by zones because people have different sizes and heights, and they could spread out in a way that doesn’t coincide with the patterns of zoning.
The foam density in the Saatva Classic are less than those of the Loom & Leaf which is the company’s foam-mattress offering. Although company representatives wouldn’t divulge details, we were informed the density of memory foam is at minimum 3 pounds in cubic feet and the density of polyfoam is 1 1/2 pounds per cubic foot.
These aren’t as high as the densities in the Loom & Leaf, but the specs are typical in an innerspring mattress and especially one that’s priced in this range. In contrast to foam mattresses, this mattress’s steel coils provide extra support and quilting may help to prevent body impressions.
But as in this Reddit post suggests, some sleepers have had more success with Saatva mattresses. Saatva mattresses over the course of many years than others; we believe this is based on the sleeper’s size and shape. As with all thick Euro- or pillow-top mattresses the heavier you weigh, the more you risk seeing sagging and imprints as time passes.
This is why you must rotate your mattress diligently at least every six months, and then sleep all on top of your mattress.
Saatva Classic top owner-review feedback
We were able to find only 39 owner reviews that are of high-quality (those that didn’t seem fake or vague and were published recently, in 2019 and 2020). While the sample size is relatively small, we think it’s worth noting that almost 30% of positive reviews praised Saatva’s service to customers. This is a higher percentage than what we’ve seen with other online mattress businesses.
Also, six of the reviewers mentioned that sagging was the cause of their discomfort. One of them weighed more than 200 pounds while the others were lighter or did not mention. The majority of them had been using the mattress for more than a year at the time they wrote their reviews. This suggests that rotating the mattress is crucial; heavier people who like innersprings might consider an innerspring mattress that is more durable latex foam, like this one from the Charles P. Rogers Estate SE. Stearns And Foster Vs Saatva
Saatva Loom & Leaf
Who is it for: This all foam Loom & Leaf appeals to those who like a memory foam that wraps around, as opposed to engulfing them in a tense, sluggish hug. The more relaxed version may be best for side-sleepers. It is made for back- or stomach-sleepers. Anyone who weighs more than 200 pounds could consider the Firm to be more supportive than the Relaxed Firm.
The way it feels:The Relaxed Firm is an average-firm mattress that supports you without tying you in; the Firm (which we’ve only tried in a showroom) is much more firm.
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 a high-quality innerspring mattress (by contrast, many memory foam mattresses come with flimsier, sock-like covers). That cover contains its own foam padding that adds an additional dimension to the usually one-note squishiness of cheaper memory-foam mattresses. I slept on the Relaxed Firm at home for more than one week and loved that it was soft and substantial at the same time. The husband of mine, who likes mattress that are firm, and weighs 70 pounds heavier than me-thought 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 slide or develop body indents as opposed to other foam mattresses even for people who weigh over 200 pounds (though it may not be suitable when you weigh over 250 pounds; see the owner review feedback, below). As with all foam mattresses, this one has a high-quality motion isolation.
In 2020, we tested our Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm against the Serta iComfort (both are all-foam mattresses that cost over $1,000), and 20 out of 29 people prefer that of the Loom & Leaf. “It was more comfortable” was a common motive; however, some claimed it was more “cushioned.” In the event that we test it with it against the Casper Wave in 2019 and the results were split (18 in favor of the Wave sixteen for the Loom & Leaf). Those who opted for the Loom & Leaf preferred its “cushier” or “more fitting” feeling or the feel of its quilting; those who chose to go with the Casper Wave described the Wave as being more supportive and it was more supportive. Loom & Leaf as making them feel more “stuck.”
We also appreciate it that Loom & Leaf, like all Saatva Company’s mattresses, comes delivered unboxed, by movers. That means you don’t have to let it air out, as you would many boxed mattresses; most off-gassing will have taken place in the factory.
What we don’t like: We wish Saatva could provide a level of firmness between Firm and Relaxed Firm. The two levels seem to be at least a couple of degrees between them. And although it is true that the Loom & Leaf has better edge support than some of the more popular models on the internet (such as the Leesa or the Casper), it isn’t as sturdy as the Hybrid (like those like the Leesa Hybrid or the Tempur-Adapt).
Despite the Loom and Leaf’s cooling gel and pin core (punctured) design, which is advertised in the top layer, I was able to sleep quite warmer on this mattress which was surprising considering that I’m always cold. Given that it was mid-winter of winter, I didn’t feel the cold at all. The tiny holes designed for cooling could affect the durability that the foam has, though it’s likely to be only marginally. Given that the Loom & Leaf has a top layer of memory foam that weighs 4 tons per cubic foot it’s likely to be more durable than your typical $1,000-or-less online foam mattress.
Loom & Leaf top owner-review feedback
We have only found 16 recently updated, top-quality user reviews for Loom & Leaf. Loom & Leaf. Just as with the Saatva Classic, excellent customer service is a standout among the positive feedback. In the years 2019 and 2020 many reviewers have described the Loom & Leaf as “too firm” rather than “too soft.” However it’s not easy to draw conclusions about its texture. A lot of reviewers did not specify if they’d purchased the Relaxed Firm or the Firm.
Also, we noticed that heavier reviewers tend to refer to that the Loom & Leaf as too soft, or even too loose or even. For instance, we saw complaints on Reddit about the Relaxed Firm version sagging for people who weigh more than 250 pounds; if this is you, you might try the Firm version (though, again, it’s very stiff) or alternatively, the Tempur-Adapt (which also features dense foam but a more-distinct memory-foam hug). If you weigh well over 200 pounds, look into the Zenhaven, which is constructed with intrinsically more-durable latex foam. Stearns And Foster Vs Saatva
Does it merit our recommendation? Yes.
Who it’s to be used for The latex-foam Zenhaven should suit people who sleep in any position, particularly those who want a firm cushion, but without that “sunk-in” feeling. It’s also good for people of all weights and sizes, including those who weigh over 200 pounds.
The way it feels This foam mattress can be turned over and comes with handles that let you choose between two options that are: The Luxury Plush Side is on the softer end of the medium-firm spectrum, and is suitable for sleepers who are side-sleepers. Its Gentle Firm side offers a slightly more firmer feeling (the company says it’s about 20% firmer, and that seems right to us).
What we likeabout it: Zenhaven Zenhaven is made up of two layers of latex (one and the other is zoned to provide pressure points and lower-back support however this could or could not be useful in the light of your weight and where you sleep on your bed). Latex is a kind of foam made by the milky sap of the rubber tree and it is much stronger than polyurethane or memory foam, and so we believe that this mattress is sturdy for people who weigh over 200 pounds.
We love that the Zenhaven is made specifically out of Talalay latex, which feels more flexible than Dunlop latex that is commonly used in cheaper, stiffer latex mattresses, such as the Sleep On Latex Pure Green. Both the luxury Plush as well as the Gentle Firm sides of the Zenhaven are incredibly soft and springy, but not elastic. The whole bed is also more comfortable than beds that are mostly made from Dunlop latex.
I slept upon the Zenhaven for several months. I personally prefer a more-pillowy feeling (like that of the Saatva Classic) However, the Luxury Plush side of the Zenhaven was becoming more appealing to me. After putting it to the test for a couple of weeks, I started to appreciate its soft smooth surface, with a slight springiness and cushioned cradle.
My son of 10 is also fond of playing on it, and the Zenhaven’s motion isolation isn’t a barrier to me being a bit uncomfortable about it. However, it’s sufficient that I don’t feel the need to notice my husband’s movements during the night. Edge support on the Zenhaven is better than that of most foam mattresses, such as the Loom & Leaf.
Our husband who is barely 200 pounds, and who usually sleeps on his back, has found Zenhaven to be more comfortable and appealing. Zenhaven as more substantive and appealing than the memory-foam Loom & Leaf The Relaxed Soft and Saatva Classic Luxury Firm. Saatva Classic Luxury Firm.
The Zenhaven is shipped by movers, and not in a box, so you’re less likely emit that fresh-mattress smell to your home. You can switch between the softer luxury Plush side and gentle firm side Gentle Firm side as your preferences and preferences change, or if you don’t know which degree you’ll prefer. Because the mattress is heavy (the queen weighs 130 pounds), Saatva will send moving experts to help you out with a one-time “courtesy” switch.
What we don’t like:Although the Zenhaven has an suppler feel than other mattresses that are all-latex online however, it’s not as luxurious than comparable innersprings, as well as traditional foam mattresses since it’s not traditionally “fluffy.” It was the only 2 (of 29) staff members who enjoyed it more than other models in our test of 2020 foam and hybrid mattresses said 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 extremely heavy and has two sides and two-sided, it must be placed on a sturdy, good-quality platform bed or frame and boxspring in good condition. Saatva sells the boxspring foundation (which comes in two heights) plus a metal frame.
Zenhaven top owner-review feedback
We were able to find only 18 quality reviews of owners for Zenhaven. It’s a tiny sample size to provide any definitive, non-subjective conclusion that go beyond the good customer service. We did however find a particularly descriptive post from a long-term owner with no weight (though he did claim that the height was 6 feet 4 inches tall).
He stated that after a year and a half, he still was impressed by its cushion and strength, but because he hadn’t been turning the mattress around, the impression on his hip was evident and when he began rotating the mattress once every six months, he said the imprint disappeared. We’ll update this section once we’ve collected more high-quality reviews. Stearns And Foster Vs Saatva
Saatva Latex Hybrid
What it’s designed for:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is most suited to those who value the durability of their mattress over lavishness. It’s ideal for back and stomach sleepers, and for those who toss and turn frequently. It’s durable enough for most people, not just those who weigh over 200 pounds.
What it feels like:This 13-inch latex-and-coil hybrid is in the middle of medium-firm. It’s very buoyant, a touch bouncy, with some cushioning and the feeling of being cradled. It’s certainly not luxurious, though, and it’s more comfortable to sleep on the mattress than inside it.
What we love:The Saatva Latex Hybrid is constructed using top-quality materials and techniques for construction. The quilted surface, made out of cotton, and a layer of wool (a natural flame-repellant) is hand-tufted onto the layers beneath it. Tufting (commonly found on furniture or traditional in-sofa mattresses) is a form of stitching with a heavy-duty structure that binds the layers Some argue that it has more durability than glue, and also avoids the chemical smell that is often associated with adhesives. These peaks and valleys produced by tufting could aid in minimizing any visible body impressions, more so than the sock-covered and smooth-topped mattresses that are typically seen on hybrids that are sold online.
While most hybrids put an layer of polyurethane foam on top of coils, Saatva’s 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 breathable and durable than polyurethane or memory foams. Talalay latex, which is also used in the Zenhaven model, is a much more breathable and soft-feeling foam than the Dunlop type that is commonly used in cheaper mattresses made of latex.
Wirecutter supervising Editor Wendy Schley tested the Saatva Latex Hybrid for a few months at home. She found it strong and supportive. “It is almost buoyant,” she said. “There’s some cushioning however it’s not extravagant in a plush way.” Wendy found that the mattress was bouncy, springy feel reminiscent of an innerspring. She also never felt stuck in place-but the latex foam did provide some motion-simplification. Edge support was superb thanks to the 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 at the top) as well as the coils that make up it is believed that the Saatva Latex Hybrid should sleep cooler than all-foam mattresses and hybrids that are made of polyfoams. Wendy who is known to have hot sleep, discovered it to be cooler than the Saatva Latex Hybrid to be notably cooler than other mattresses, although we haven’t tried it during the summer months.
We haven’t spotted enough good-quality Saatva Latex Hybrid reviews to discern any trends, but we’ll update as we find.
What we don’t like about HTML0: Though the coils are individually wrapped but there’s still a hint of motion transfer because, they’re coils. This isn’t as significant as Motion transfer found on Saatva Classic, but it’s more pronounced than on all-foam options like the Loom & Leaf or Zenhaven.
A queen-sized Latex Hybrid contains 789 coils (fewer than our top hybrid mattresses, the Tempur-Adapt or the Leesa Hybrid, that have more than 1,000). If a mattress is made up of fewer coils, it can mean that the mattress will not be as comfortable in your shape. But the firmness that the layer of latex can make more up for it.
As Wendy has experienced, the Saatva Latex Hybrid isn’t an an ahhh type of mattress. It feels like it’s lifting you up, rather than nestling you in. The mattress may not provide enough cushioning to offer sufficient pressure relief for side sleepers as well as back-sleepers who require extra cushioning for specific joints.
Wendy sleeping on both her back and sides and reported that she occasionally awakened with soreness in her lower back and shoulders after sleeping on the Saatva Latex Hybrid. If you’re looking for something more plush, you may prefer Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf. Saatva Classic or the Loom & Leaf (both come in multiple degree of firmness, with some that feel softer than the Saatva Latex).
The tufting of the Latex Hybrid’s is finished with decorative yarn tassels. They are pretty, but they are reportedly flimsy attached as one of the tassels on the mattress Wendy tried to unraveled after several weeks. Stearns And Foster Vs Saatva
Saatva Solaire Adjustable
The Saatva Solaire can be described as an adjustable-air mattress, made of foam on top of air chambers that can be set to the firmness you want using a remote. We haven’t had the chance to test the Solaire yet however we’ll update this article when we’ve had the chance to. We’ll be discussing what we know about the Solaire.
Saatva has introduced Solaire in the year 2019 to compete with Sleep Number’s premium i8 mattress. In addition to having air chambers and remotes The Solaire is equipped with the option of a pillow top, Talalay the layer of latex, and the gel-infused memory foam layer. It’s also priced at $650 less than the Sleep Number i8.
The remote has 50 settings as opposed to Sleep Number’s 20, but in reality, we’re not sure if 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.
However it’s impossible to know whether they’re the best choice until we lay down in the bed. The Solaire’s Talalay latex materials suggest longevity, but because Sleep Number doesn’t provide any details on its foam components, we can’t declare that one mattress is more durable than the other.
Whether you choose one of the twins, a king, or something in between you can get Solaire Solaire at any length you want as the standard model. If you prefer the queen or King or split king, you can upgrade to the Upper-Flex queen or king, or split King, which all have dual air chambers, which means that sleepers can choose their own firmness levels.
The standard model is compatible with any bed frame (including bases that can be adjusted). But the Upper-Flex queen and King, as well as the split king options are designed to be specifically compatible with adjustable bases that allow both sides to be adjusted independently.
The Saatva Company offers its own adjustable frames, such as Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Standard and the Lineal Adjustable Base Upper-Flex. The frame’s Upper-Flex feature allows couples can use a remote to place their shoulders and heads separately (for example, one of them can lay flat and sleep while the other person sits and reads a book).
The Upper-Flex frame that is designed to fit the split-king Solaire also allows both individuals to raise their lower bodies separately. We couldn’t find enough high-quality owner reviews to list here We’ll revise this guide when we’re in a position to test the bed ourselves and gather additional reviews. Stearns And Foster Vs Saatva
In May 2019, Saatva introduced the Saatva HD which is a hybrid mattress specifically designed for those who weigh between 300-500 pounds. We haven’t yet tested the product yet but we’re hoping to try it out in the near future.
Similar to the Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf Saatva HD Saatva HD has a pillowy quilted top layer however the firm layer of foam underneath and coils are said to support more weight.We’re especially curious about the HD’s pillow top, since experts have told us that, for people who weigh more pillows can be more susceptible 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 thicker than those found in the company’s other models and those of its rivals like Big Fig. Big Fig.
Still, these aren’t the only criteria that affect the mattress’s longevity as well as its durability on its own doesn’t make for an appealing mattress. We’ll explore these issues further in an forthcoming guide to mattresses for people who weigh more than 200 pounds.Saatva “strongly strongly suggests” to place the mattress on a sturdy platform bed with vertical center support.
In other words, Saatva representatives advised us that you must buy the HD along with its special “high durability” timber-slat-based foundation.Again, we spotted very few helpful user reviews. Once we’ve gathered enough to identify any trends and are able for a mattress test, we’ll give an update. Stearns And Foster Vs Saatva
It’s called the Saatva Youth is the company’s innovative coil-and-foam mattress for children costs more than mattresses for adults. It is however dual-sided, with the coil layer sandwiched between two foam layers, so the mattress can grow along with a kid.
Its first layer is intended for children aged 3 to 7 and is comprised of zoned polyfoam with densities that range between 1.4 to 1.8 tons per square foot.
The second side is designed for kids older than that (the company says that the age range is 8-12), the foam density is 1.5 grams per cubic foot and somewhat less spongy due to its pairing with the more firm side that’s part of the coil. The 13 3/4 -gauge coils vary from 330 in a twin up to 350 when a twin is 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. Those who prefer natural materials might appreciate that the mattress is wrapped 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 tried the mattress and we haven’t seen any reviews online. We’re hoping to evaluate it for a possible guide on mattresses for children.
The Saatva Youth, the company’s relatively new bed made of coils and foams for children is more expensive than mattresses for grown-ups. But it’s dual-sided, with an inner coil sandwiched between two foam layers and a mattress that can grow along with a kid.
One side of the mattress is designed for children aged 3 to 7, and it consists of polyfoam zones with densities that range between 1.4 to 1.8 pounds per cubic foot.
The second side is designed for kids older than that (the company says between ages 8 and 12), the foam density is 1.5 pounds per cubic foot, and is slightly softer because it’s paired with the firmer part of the coil. The 13 3/4 -gauge coils vary from 330 in the size of a twin, up to 350 for a twin-XL. They also go up to 462 for 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. Those who prefer natural materials might appreciate the fact that the mattress is encased in a quilted, thick organic-cotton covers and utilizes thistle pulp (as opposed to chemical sprays or fiberglass) to act as a flame-resistant. We haven’t tried the 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. Stearns And Foster Vs Saatva
