Saatva Mattress Overview

Saatva is a U.S.-based mattress and bedding product manufacturer that first launched in 2010. The company offers a wide selection of mattresses, including innerspring, hybrid, memory foam, latex, and airbed models. This review will focus on the flagshipSaatva, also known as the Saatva Classic, which is a coil-on-coil innerspring mattress.

The Saatva features a Euro-top cover padded with polyfoam and dacron fibers, followed by comfort layers of polyfoam and memory foam, as well as a transitional layer of pocketed coils. The support core contains bonnell coils made from recycled steel.

Saatva customers can choose from three different firmness settings, each of which has a different rating on the 1-10 firmness scale: ‘Plush Soft,’ or medium-soft (4); ‘Luxury Firm,’ or medium-firm (6), and ‘Firm’ (7.5). These settings differ in terms of cover and comfort layer construction. Additionally, the bed is available in 11.5-inch or 14.5-inch profiles. The 11.5-inch model has a 4-inch bonnell coil layer, while the 14.5-inch model has a 7-inch bonnell coil layer.

Read on to learn more about the Saatva flagship innerspring. This review will cover construction and materials, prices, and performance ratings based on owner experiences and our own product testing. We’ll also compare the Saatva to some similarly constructed mattress models, and provide an overview of the company’s shipping, return, and warranty policies.

Ratings Summary

Tuck’s testing team conducted an extensive evaluation of the Saatva mattress. Our review and rating process consists of three parts: in-house evaluation, external sleep testing, and data collection of verified owner experiences. To learn more about our review process, read our methodology here.

Our performance criteria and ratings for the bed are listed in the table below.

Mattress Performance Ratings

Durability

Specifies how long the product maintains structure, providing comfort and support before it begins to deteriorate. For reference, the average mattress lifespan is 6-8 years.

Most innerspring mattresses last between six and seven years, and Saatva mattresses seem to be on par with this lifespan.

Motion Isolation

A measure of how effectively a mattress absorbs motion across its surface, preventing partner disturbance.

Like other innersprings, the Saatva mattress does not absorb or minimize motion to a significant extent. This may be problematic for certain sleepers, such as couples who share a bed, since minimal motion isolation can lead to sleep disruptions.

Off-gassing

Most new products emit chemical smells after being removed from packaging. Off-gassing odors are considered non-toxic, but can be quite unpleasant nonetheless.

Since the Saatva mattress is not compressed for shipping, owners should not notice any off-gassing when they recieve their mattress.

Pressure Relief

This refers to the degree to which a mattress molds to or cradles the contours of the body. This helps alleviate pressure point pain, especially on the hips and shoulders.

Saatva features coil-on-coil construction and memory foam in the comfort layer. This allows the mattress to conform more closely and relieve pressure to a greater extent than many competing innersprings — but all-foam and latex mattresses are considered the best option for sleepers that prefer close conforming and targeted pressure relief.

Temperature Neutrality

The temperature of a mattress throughout the night is affected by how much body heat is retained. Several factors affect temperature neutrality, including material composition, layer thickness, and dissipation of heat through airflow.

Mattresses that contain foam and memory foam tend to sleep the hottest. Saatva has a more traditional innerspring construction so our testing along with data analysis show that it’s one of the cooler mattress options on the market today compared to all-foam competitors.

Edge Support

The degree to which the perimeter of the mattress supports body weight. In some cases, mattresses may sink when weight is applied. This sinkage, often called “roll-off”, affects how closely you might sleep to the edge of the bed.

Innerspring mattresses tend to have optimal edge support and the Saatva is no exception. Customers report a consistent sleep surface (no-roll off when sleeping towards the edge) as well as above-average push back when sitting on the edge of the mattress.

Noise

Certain mattresses – particularly those with coils – can be quite noisy when bearing weight. Others are nearly silent. Material composition is often the limiting factor for noise potential.

Roughly 7% of Saatva owners cite noise as a complaint. This is on par with noise complaints from all innerspring owners.

How Is the Saatva Constructed?

Cover

The Saatva features a Euro-top cover, a layer of foam/fiber padding intended to make the surface feel softer. The Euro-top for ‘Plush Soft’ and ‘Luxury Firm’ models contains 1.25 inches of soft polyfoam, while the ‘Firm’ has 1.5 inches of firm polyfoam. All three settings also include an 0.75-inch Euro-top layer of dacron fibers beneath the polyfoam.

This extra padding layer can be especially beneficial for side sleepers, who often need more cushioning beneath the hips and shoulders for even spinal alignment. The cover fabric is 100 percent organic cotton and has an exceptionally soft hand-feel.

Comfort Layers

All versions of the Saatva are constructed with a top polyfoam comfort layer and a second memory foam layer. These components collectively measure 1 inch thick. The ‘Plush Soft’ model offers the closest body-conforming due to the its softer feel and use of soft polyfoam in the comfort system, while the ‘Luxury Firm’ or ‘Firm’ models conform less and provide a more even plane for sleepers.

See our ‘Firmness and Feel’ breakdown below for a detailed look at each firmness setting.

Transitional Layer

Beneath the comfort layers, the Saatva contains 4-inch pocketed coils made from recycled steel. The coils have a gauge of 14.5, which is a mid-level thickness. Comparatively, coils found in most mattresses range from 12-gauge (thickest) to 17-gauge (thinnest). The Saatva’s pocketed coils provide some responsiveness but do not feel as springy or stiff as thicker lower-gauge coils, making them more comfortable for sleepers.

This transitional layer acts as a buffer that prevents sleepers from sinking through the comfort layers and into the bonnell coils, which feel much firmer and denser. The pocketed coils also add to the Saatva’s responsive feel.

Support Layers

The Saatva’s support core consists of recycled-steel bonnell coils, which are 13-gauge and fairly thick. This layer, along with the transitional coils, helps stabilize the sleep surface and reinforce the edges against deep sinkage. The 11.5-inch Saatva has 4-inch bonnell coils, while the 14.5-inch model has 7-inch coils.

Mattress Height

The Saatva may measure 11.5 or 14.5 inches, depending on the support core thickness. The 11.5-inch Saatva is considered medium-profile. This model sacrifices some bonnell coil thickness, but its coil-on-coil construction still ensures adequate support for most sleepers. The 14.5-inch Saatva, a high-profile model, offers exceptional support – especially for heavier individuals.

Customers should note there is no pricing difference between the 11.5-inch and 14.5-inch profiles in any given size.

What Are the Firmness and Feel Like?

Each firmness setting for the Saatva has a distinct feel. The ‘Plush Soft,’ which we consider medium-soft (4) on our own firmness scale, conforms very closely to the sleeper’s body thanks to its softer feel and comfort layer of soft polyfoam. This characteristic, combined with the bed’s responsive coil-on-coil design, creates a feeling of sleeping “on” and sleeping “in” the mattress.

The ‘Luxury Firm,’ which we consider medium-firm (6), features soft polyfoam padding in the Euro-top for added plushness, but this setting only conforms to a moderate extent. The ‘Firm’ (7.5) lacks the the softer polyfoam comfort layer of the ‘Luxury Firm’ and ‘Plush Soft.’ As a result, sleepers experience minimal contouring and more even support. The ‘Luxury Firm’ and ‘Firm’ settings feel more like sleeping “on” – as opposed to sleeping “in” – the mattress.

Ratings Breakdown

Performance Ratings

Next, let’s take an in-depth look at our performance ratings for the Saatva. Each rating is based on findings from our internal and external testing teams, as well as verified Saatva owner experiences.

Durability

Our testing and owner experiences suggest the Saatva has an expected lifespan of about six to eight years, which put the mattress on par with the average innerspring model. Saatva claims the mattress hould perform for up to 15 years. The bonnell coils are made from resilient steel and are fairly thick, while the pocketed coils in the transitional layer add extra reinforcement. Over time, the bed’s coil-on-coil structure should ensure great stability.

However, the Saatva may begin to lose support as its foam layers deteriorate, and this can lead to body impressions forming in the sleep surface. Euro-top beds are particularly vulnerable to this type of wear and tear, since their surfaces are typically softer and less resilient.

Owners can protect their Saatva from foam deterioration and body impressions by rotating the mattress head-to-foot every three to six months. The Saatva is fairly heavy in all sizes, and more than one person may be needed to lift the mattress.

Motion Isolation

To evaluate the Saatva for motion isolation, we asked two testers to lie down on the mattress at the same time. One moved around while the other felt for the motion transferring across the mattress. The testers noticed a fair amount of movement during these tests, which can be attributed to the bed’s responsive surface.

Innersprings – and, to a lesser extent, hybrids – usually isolate less motion for this reason. The coil systems cause the surfaces to feel bouncier, and this restricts the bed’s ability to absorb transfer. Beds with foam support cores often provide better motion isolation.

Off-Gassing

Because the Saatva is not compressed for shipping, our testers did not notice any initial off-gassing when they first received the Saatva. Owner experiences also suggest low odor potential. We don’t anticipate any long-term off-gassing issues with this mattress.

Innerspring and hybrid models are less likely to trap unpleasant smells due to strong airflow through their coil-based support cores. The Saatva’s additional coil layer provides added circulation and odor prevention.

Pressure Relief

To evaluate the Saatva for pressure relief, our testers took turns lying on a sensory pad that monitors pressure build-up in the shoulders, hips, and other pressure-sensitive areas. They also rotated sleep positions to see if pressure increased or decreased when lying on their sides, back, and stomach.

Overall, the Saatva offered good pressure relief across all weight and sleep position groups. However, our testers found that firmness settings were an important factor. The ‘Plush Soft’ models conforms more closely to alleviate more pressure for lighter people – side sleepers in particular. The ‘Luxury Firm’ and ‘Firm’ models felt more supportive to heavier individuals while conforming to their bodies and alleviating pressure in the process.

Temperature Neutrality

Temperature neutrality is a key strength of the Saatva. Mattresses with coil support cores generate strong airflow, which cools off the interior and helps the bed maintain a comfortable temperature. The Saatva, thanks to its additional coil layer, offers even stronger circulation than the average innerspring or hybrid.

That said, the ‘Plush Soft’ model may sleep warmer than the other two firmness settings. Sleepers sink a bit more deeply into the softer setting, and this can restrict some surface airflow.

Edge Support

To evaluate the Saatva’s edge support, our testers sat along the perimeter of the mattress as owners might do when getting in or out of bed. None of our testers noticed significant sinkage and all felt reasonably secure. They also took turns lying near the edges of the mattress to test for feelings of “roll-off.” Again, the mattress felt very stable for all testers, even when they shifted positions.

The Saatva’s very good edge support is largely due to its thick coil-on-coil support system, which provides above-average perimeter reinforcement. Owners may notice more sinkage as the mattress nears the end of its lifespan, but major structural issues are unlikely.

Noise

Considering how thick the Saatva’s coil system is, the mattress is fairly quiet and should not pose major sleep disruptions for owners. The bonnell coils may begin to produce creaking sounds over time, but the pocketed coils are fairly quiet. However, the Saatva still has higher noise potential than the average all-foam or all-latex model, both of which are virtually silent.

The Saatva feels very springy, while its Euro-top and comfort layers provide some body-conforming. For many couples, this represents an ideal surface for amorous activities. The responsive surface allows them to use the entire surface of the bed and easily switch positions, but the foam offers excellent traction. Even compared to other innersprings, the Saatva rates exceptionally well in this category.

Sleeper Ratings

The ideal firmness and thickness settings for a mattress largely depend on a sleeper’s body weight, shape, and preferred sleep position. In order to better inform our readers and avoid subjectivity in our review, the Tuck team evaluated the bed with sleep testers of varying body types and position preferences.

Lightweight Sleepers – Less than 130 lbs.

Our lightweight testers were somewhat mixed about the Saatva, but overall their ratings were very positive. Side sleepers noted ample cushioning for their shoulders and hips, particularly with the ‘Plush Soft’ model. Padding these areas of the body can correct spinal alignment issues associated with this position. Back and stomach sleepers enjoyed the ‘Plush Soft’ and ‘Luxury Firm’ models, noting a good balance of body-conforming and even support.

Ratings from this weight group were less favorable for the ‘Firm’ model. Sleepers weighing less than 130 pounds often find firmer beds do not conform closely enough, resulting in less pressure relief.

Average Weight Sleepers – 130 to 230 lbs.

Our average weight testers also enjoyed the Saatva. This was especially true for stomach sleepers weighing 130 to 230 pounds, who noted excellent overall support from the ‘Luxury Firm’ and ‘Firm’ models. Many people carry a large amount of weight in the midsection, and sleeping face-down can cause the stomach to sink too deeply into the mattress. The Saatva’s dual coil layers reinforce the bed very well to prevent this sinkage from occurring.

Back sleepers in this weight group found the Saatva very comfortable in all three settings, though the ‘Luxury Firm’ provided the most balanced feel. Side sleepers preferred the ‘Plush Soft’ and ‘Luxury Firm’ settings, noting ample cushioning and even spinal alignment.

Heavyweight Sleepers – More than 230 lbs.

Our heavyweight side and back sleepers found the Saatva’s ‘Luxury Firm’ and ‘Firm’ settings most comfortable. These models do not hug the body as closely as the ‘Plush Soft,’ resulting in enhanced support for the shoulders and hips.

Additionally, heavyweight testers noted better overall support with the 14.5-inch model due to its extra coil strength. This thicker profile, combined with the ‘Firm’ setting, ensures optimal stability for most sleepers weighing more than 230 pounds.

How Does the Saatva Compare to Other Beds?

We urge all mattress shoppers to browse different brands and models in order to find the bed that best suits them. In this next section, we’ll see how the Saatva stacks up against a few Saatva models and some similarly constructed mattresses from competing brands.

Saatva vs. Saatva HD

The Saatva HD is a hybrid model specifically designed for heavier individuals. The mattress contains comfort layers of zoned latex and high-density memory foam, while the support core contains 12.5-gauge bonnell coils reinforced with high-density polyfoam pillars. These sturdy components reinforce the mattress very well and prevent larger sleepers from sinking too deeply.

Although the Saatva HD’s robust design is very well suited for those weighing more than 230 pounds, lighter people will probably find the mattress too firm. This is especially true for lightweight side sleepers. The flagship Saatva in its ‘Plush Soft’ or ‘Luxury Firm’ settings is better suited for those who weigh less than 130 pounds. In terms of similarities, the Saatva and Saatva HD have earned comparable performance ratings for edge support, temperature neutrality, sex, and pressure relief.

Pricing will likely be a factor for shoppers because the Saatva HD’s price-point is more than double the Saatva’s, though both beds qualify for free White Glove delivery. Heavier people should consider the Saatva HD for its extra support, while lighter individuals will likely prefer the flagship Saatva instead.

Saatva vs. Loom & Leaf

The Loom & Leaf is Saatva’s luxury memory foam mattress. Constructed with two memory foam layers on top of a high-density foam base, the mattress offers close body-conforming and excellent pressure relief. The Loom & Leaf is ideal for those who prefer sleeping “in” – as opposed to “on” – the mattress. The Saatva is much more responsive by comparison.

Due to its coil system, the Saatva promotes stronger airflow and sleeps noticeably cooler than the Loom & Leaf. The thick coil system also ensures better edge support. The Loom & Leaf, on the other hand, completely eliminates motion transfer and does not produce any noise, making it better for couples.

The Saatva and Loom & Leaf each qualify for Saatva’s free White Glove delivery offer, but the latter is more expensive. Sleepers who appreciate the deep, pressure-relieving body cradle of memory foam beds will probably enjoy the Loom & Leaf more, but the Saatva is better suited to those who prefer a bouncier innerspring feel.

Saatva vs. Zenhaven

The Zenhaven is a flippable latex mattress from Saatva. One side of the bed feels medium-soft and offers close body-conforming, while the other side has a firm feel and conforms very little. Due to the high responsiveness of latex, the Zenhaven creates a combined feeling of sleeping “on” and sleeping “in” the mattress.

The natural resiliency of latex gives the Zenhaven excellent durability. The mattress also isolates more motion than the Saatva and does not make any noise. However, the Saatva outperforms the Zenhaven in other categories, such as temperature neutrality and edge support.

As a Saatva model, the Zenhaven also qualifies for free White Glove delivery, but this model is considerably more expensive than the Saatva. People who appreciate the versatility of flippable beds, as well as couples seeking a less disruptive mattress, may wish to opt for the Zenhaven, while the Saatva provides more overall support and tends to sleep cooler.

Saatva vs. Brooklyn Bedding Aurora

The Brooklyn Bedding Aurora is a high-performance hybrid constructed with a phase-change cover to keep the surface cool, along with a thick polyfoam comfort system and 8-inch pocketed coils. The mattress slightly outperforms the Saatva in temperature neutrality thanks to its phase-change component, while its comfort layers conform closely, alleviate pressure very well, and provide great motion isolation.

Like the Saatva, the Brooklyn Bedding Aurora comes in three firmness settings. A softer option is best suited to lighter people, particularly side sleepers, while the medium and firm settings provide stronger support for heavier individuals. Both the Saatva and Brooklyn Bedding Aurora also offer very good edge support due to their thick coil systems.

The Brooklyn Bedding Aurora is considerably more expensive, but for many sleepers, the mattress represents an ideal balance of pressure relief, cooling, and sleeper support. The Saatva still performs very well in these categories, and its lower price-point may entice some shoppers.

Saatva vs. DreamCloud

The DreamCloud is a luxury hybrid mattress. Like the Saatva, the DreamCloud features a Euro-top cover followed by polyfoam and memory foam layers. However, the mattress has a responsive, medium-firm feel and does not conform very closely to the body. This creates a floating feeling akin to sleeping “on” the mattress, which is similar to the Saatva’s firmest settings.

Aside from these differences, the Saatva and DreamCloud are fairly similar. Each model features a thick coil system that provides very good edge support and promotes steady airflow to keep the mattress cool. Additionally, both mattresses are excellent for sex due to their above-average responsiveness.

The DreamCloud and Saatva are both reasonably priced, given their advanced designs and high-quality materials. Those who prefer the responsive feel of traditional innersprings will likely enjoy the DreamCloud, while people who like more body-conforming should pick the Saatva instead.

Saatva vs. WinkBed

Like the Saatva, the WinkBed is a coil-on-coil innerspring available in medium-soft, medium-firm, and firm settings. A firmer ‘WinkBed Plus’ setting designed for heavier individuals is also available. The WinkBed’s comfort layers of polyfoam and foam-encased minicoils cushion the sleeper’s body to alleviate pressure points, and 8-inch pocketed coils provide great overall stability.

Both the Saatva and WinkBed offer very good temperature neutrality thanks to steady airflow through their dual coil layers. Edge support is another shared strength, which is to be expected from most mattresses with thick coil systems. The WinkBed isolates a bit more motion transfer due to its thicker comfort system, while the Saatva’s highly responsive surface is better for sex.

The WinkBed is considerably more expensive. This model is better suited to couples and people with pressure point issues, but the Saatva’s lower price will likely be a factor for many shoppers.

Saatva vs. Avocado

The Avocado Mattress is a latex hybrid mattress with an eco-friendly construction. The feel is firm (7) thanks to the layers of Dunlop latex and strong coils. A variant with an optional 2-inch pillow top of additional latex is available for an extra charge, adjusting the firmness to a medium firm (6) feel. By contrast, the Saatva’s most similar variant is the Firm option with a firm (7.5) feel. Two softer options are also available, giving the Saatva more range when it comes to firmness.

The Avocado and Saatva mattresses perform similarly when it comes to many aspects of mattress performance, thanks to their thick, robust coil systems and relatively thin comfort layers. That being said, there are distinct differences between the two. The Avocado is more durable thanks to its latex layers, with slight edges in terms of isolating motion and sleeping cool. The Saatva tends to allow for more conforming and pressure-relief with a smaller amount of off-gassing.

Both models are similarly and affordably priced for being high-quality hybrid mattresses, although the Saatva has a slight edge in pricing. While the Avocado performs relatively well for sleepers of a variety of sizes and positions, the bed’s rather firm feel gears it toward stomach sleepers as well as average to heavyweight sleepers. Lightweight sleepers and those who prefer a softer feel will likely want to gravitate toward one of the Saatva’s two softer options of either a medium-soft (4) or medium-firm (6).

About Foundations

Like those found in most of today’s premium interactive mattress sets, the Saatva mattress uses a rigid solid support foundation that utilizes a solid deck support with a wood slat construction for maximum mattress and body support. Additionally, they contain our eco-friendly foams and are covered in organic cotton.

Our foundations are available in two thickness options — a standard 8.75" foundation and a 4.75" low profile foundation. Both are available in twin, full, queen, king and California king sizes. There is absolutely no difference in the feel between the low profile 4.75" and the standard 8.75".

All king and Cal king size foundations come split for delivery purposes, as they do not bend. The split foundation will fit into any entrance way or doorway. Twin, full and queen all come standard in one piece.

About Frames

The bed frame fits all sizes of bedding. The center rail has 3 heavy duty legs for maximum center support from head to toe. The center support can be used on all sizes for maximum stability and support. The frame has a total of 7 heavy duty legs with floor guides. The frame sits 7.5" off the ground.

About Home Delivery and Set Up

Our delivery professionals will provide free full-service set up in the room of your choice. We’ll also remove your old mattress, if you choose that option at checkout.

Mattress Height Tips

Consider the following illustration and points to ensure you’re making the right mattress height choice.

1. Consider all factors when deciding your heights. Rather than relying solely on visualization, combine your visual thoughts with numbers by literally measuring your existing bed and/or measuring for the heights we offer. With the data that you’ve gathered, you’ll have peace of mind that you’ve ordered correctly.

2. The Saatva 14.5" and 11.5" mattresses were designed to feel identical in each of the comfort classifications. The same applies for our 8.75" and 4.75" foundations.

3. When determining your bed height, please account for the height of your ‘metal frame’ or ‘bed frame’ that the foundation and mattress will rest on. (Note, Saatva metal frames are 7.5" off the floor.)

4. Make sure that you will be comfortable getting in and out of your bed based on the height you select.

5. If you have a headboard and/or footboard, please be sure that you are happy with the amount of surface exposed on the headboard and/or footboard based on the mattress and/or foundation heights you have chosen.

6. If you already have a bed skirt that you plan on continuing to use, please make sure to measure from the floor to the top of the foundation to determine the size you will need. The most common bed skirts are approximately 14" to 15" high, which would be fine with a 7.5" metal frame and a standard 8" foundation.

7. When considering the total height of the bed, please keep in mind aesthetic features such as the height of end tables and/or windowsills in the room.

Comfort Level Tips

Luxury Firm

The iconic comfort level of "Luxury Firm", is rated the "#1 comfort choice" in the ultra premium mattress classification. This is the standard comfort level used in the finest hotels in the world, where their goal is to ensure every guest gets a great night sleep. "Luxury Firm" offers the perfect balance of "cushion firm and contouring support". This is achieved by combining our dual coil system which features individual pocketed coils that are designed to contour and respond perfectly to any body weight, shape or sleeping position. This assures proper spinal alignment with our premium foam cushion layers for the ultimate and most comfortable sleep experience. Whether you sleep on your side, back or stomach, you will be very happy with this comfort level. It is a true medium firm. It’s not too hard or too soft. It perfectly molds to your body, and then supports you without sinking in. It is the best mattress for universal comfort in the luxury bedding market.

The Saatva Firm comfort level is designed with a luxurious cushion top that will mold to your body, but offers a firmer core, with less flexibility than our Flagship medium level. This extra firmness will give you excellent balanced resistance from head to toe. The Saatva Firm will not have a ‘table top’ hard feel of a ‘super firm’, which we do not build.

Plush Soft

We achieve this comfort level by coupling our individual pocketed coils with softer foams, offering more flexibility and give. We have designed this comfort level to be soft, cradling you from the time you enter the mattress.

There’s a lot of new bedding innovations out there, but classics are classics for a reason. If you’re in the market for a more traditional innerspring feel with a few modern touches, Saatva might be the right mattress for you.

This brand is billed as luxury kept affordable with an online sales model. Is it a truly luxurious feel? What does the pillowtop do for it, can you honestly use this on an adjustable base?

Our Saatva mattress reviewwill investigate all these questions, focusing on the most versatile Luxury Firm. (It also comes in Firm, Plush Soft, and HD.) Of course, if you want to cut to the chase, you’re welcome to jump down to our conclusion.

Who Do We Think Matches With Saatva?

  • Classic Innerspring Sleepers– This bed has not only one, but two innerspring units that make up its construction, taking advantage of both connected and individually wrapped coils to provide an updated take on a classic feel.
  • Affordable Luxury Shoppers– This brand aims to prove that luxury doesn’t have to come from a store, and their line of mattresses was designed to impress with tall silhouettes, classy looks, and durable constructions — all without breaking the bank.
  • Heavier Folks– The Saatva classic has a lot of great support ideal for sleepers looking for a more robust bed, and the company’s recently introduced an HD model designed specifically for plus size sleepers over 300 pounds.

Possible Saatva Complaints:

  • It doesn’t come in a box.– If the main reason you’re shopping for mattresses on the internet is that you need a brand compressed into an easy to transport box, this might not be your brand. However, this mattress comes with free white glove delivery, so you can still leave the heavy lifting to the professionals.
  • The foundation coils are connected.– There’s a lot to love about individually wrapped coils, and the bed’s first innerspring layer does have these motion-isolating, modern construction for more tailored support. By using connected coils in the foundation, the company claims to improve durability.

Saatva gets its name from the ancient Sanskrit word for “pure,” and this company, launched in 2011, was one among the original online mattress companies. Their aim was to provide a more eco-conscious line of mattresses that had a luxury feel that didn’t wreck your budget.

To round out their line, the company also offers a memory foam bed called Loom & Leaf and a dual-sided latex choice called Zenhaven. All three brands are built to be compatible with the company’s adjustable frame, on which they co-collaborated with industry mainstay, Leggett and Platt. In 2019, the brand introduced an HD version of their classic innerspring for heavier sleepers, as well as an adjustable mattress called the Solaire.

Construction: What’s Inside Saatva?

All Classic Saatvas, available 11.5 inches tall or 14.5 inches tall, are covered with natural cotton that is naturally breathable. It is stitched to 1.25 inch layer of foam to form the bed’s Euro-style pillow top, which aids pressure relief. The fabric is treated to give it anti-microbial properties.

  • Below the pillow top, on the center third of the mattress, a unique lumbar area has been created with memory foam. It has a noticeably different feel from the rest of the mattress and was designed to relieve back tension.
  • Going deeper, the first layer of coilsis revealed under foam transition layer. Under the lumbar panel, zoning in the coils boosts support in the central third of the mattress. This layer and the layer beneath it are made from recycled steel.
  • The lower layer connected coilsare 7-inch steel hourglass-shaped support coils. They help prevent sagging and provide support. In addition, the coil-on-coil design helps with air circulation and gives the bed a good amount of bounce.
  • The edgesare encased in a sturdy, thick foam (which is also found on its base) to deliver enhanced edge support and make every inch of the surface usable.

Saatva comes in two different heights, which will affect some layers, but not their number or contents. The HD model swaps out the first layer of coils for 5-zoned Talalay latex foam and contouring memory foam.

First Impression: How Does It Feel?

Saatva is delivered full-size so there’s no waiting period common to online mattresses delivered in smaller boxes. It can be dressed immediately. The stitching looks expensive and tugging on it reveals its long-term durability.

Settling into the bed, you should feel contouring in your lumbar from the memory foam, while the plush Eurotop relieves pressure on your shoulders. Saatva’s dual coil system gives the sleeper a springy experience, covered in plush luxury.
