Saatva Mattress Review

Sleep deprivation – which includes poor and restless sleep – has become an epidemic, and too often, we find ourselves chasing down cures and supplements to help us sleep better. But honestly, one of the biggest causes of losing sleep is a poor quality or old mattress. If our sleep environment is uncomfortable, we’re not going to get the rest and relaxation we need to make it through the next day. That’s where the technology and comfort of products like the Saatva mattress can help. Depending on what you’re looking for in a mattress, the Saatva could potentially solve your lack of sleep. Take a look at some of the qualities and specifications that make this product worth careful consideration for purchase.

Product Review


Casper Perfect Mattress

While the latest trend in mattresses is to go with a complete memory foam setting, the Saatva mattress combines multiple technologies that assist with comfort, durability, firm support, and breathability. There are 5 layers to the mattress, including memory foam and two different types of coils.

In addition, because everyone prefers a different level of firmness, the mattress is offered in three different styles so you can choose how much support you truly want. Regardless of the size of your space or your current frame, you can purchase this product to fit, with multiple sizes available. That makes it adaptable to your environment.

The comfort guarantee and overall warranty are nothing to balk at, even if there are some limitations, with plenty of reassurance to make it worth the purchase. Also, because of its construction, it is highly durable and should last longer than the average mattress, if properly cared for, a process which is a little more detailed than some but still shouldn’t be a bother.

If you are looking for a mattress that has all the properties of traditional memory foam, or if you require an ultra-firm mattress, this may not be the product for you. However, if you want proper support and comfort in addition to temperature regulation and long lasting reassurance, you can benefit from the Saatva product.

PROS

  • Reasonably priced with a decent warranty to back the product
  • Motion isolation for a good night’s sleep
  • 120 Day Trial
  • Multiple firmness options

CONS

  • Limitations to the warranty
  • Specific care instructions required

Features & Benefits

While many have turned away from the traditional coil or spring mattress, the Saatva has incorporated a special technology that offers the best in coil features, coupled with memory foam and a pillow top that add even more comfort to the product. You’ll find that the materials used create a comfortable and cool sleep environment to avoid overheating during the night, and you don’t have to worry as much about wear and tear with extra durability. Let’s break down some of the individual properties that make the product a good option for your next mattress.

Thickness

The Saatva product is available in 2 different thicknesses. The more popular of the two is the original Premier Luxury thickness, which is 14.5 inches. However, if you prefer something not quite as thick, try the Custom Slim, which is 11.5” deep. Either option allows you a decent layer of support, as well as the added comfort of a layer of memory foam, creating a pillowy environment that also handles the necessary contouring for your back, neck, and overall body position throughout the night.

Material

This product is a crossover of traditional spring mattresses with memory foam and pillow top that incorporates 5 separate layers for the ultimate sleeping experience. If you’ve been seeking out a mattress that offers the best of both worlds, you might want to consider the construction of the Saatva:

  • The top layer is a Euro-style pillow top, complete with an organic cotton encasement that helps with ventilation and dissipation of excess heat, as well as an interior of fine wadding material. The layer is about 2 inches thick.
  • Beneath the pillow top, you’ll find a layer of laminated memory foam. This aids in offering the right level of pressure relief in the right places, so that you get the support you need for your lower back, neck, and hips.
  • Individually wrapped coils provide motion isolation and allow for the mattress to better contour to any sleep position, without the bouncing of the entire bed when you shift – or when your partner moves around or gets in and out of bed during the night. This goes a long way in ensuring a restful slumber.
  • The foam casing around the individually wrapped coils could actually count as two layers, since it rides above and below the coils. It is utilized to add durability to the entire structure, as well as to provide additional comfort with another level of even pillowed softness between you and the coils.
  • The bottom layer consists of tempered steel coils that are necessary for additional support and to assist in sag prevention over time.

Note that the odd smell that usually emits from brand new memory foam fresh out of the package does not pose a problem here. This is because the memory foam layer is made of bio soy foam, which quickly de-gasses during the manufacturing process. Therefore, there is no remaining gas to release such unwanted fumes into your home.

Best of all, the mattress is constructed in the United States, utilizing high quality renewable and sustainable products, which help reduce the carbon footprint of the manufacturer (and any carbon footprint you may leave through your use of products). This means that you can rest assured that your purchase and use of the Saatva mattress is guilt-free.

With this product, there are also three levels of firmness to choose from, each constructed to assist you in getting the ultimate sleep, based on how you sleep at night. The Plush Soft mattress is constructed for side sleepers who enjoy feeling like the mattress wraps around them while they sleep, allowing them to sink into the bedding enough to give them the rich sensation without compromising the support structure. The Luxury Firm version, which is the most popular, offers construction that appeals to any sleeper – side, back, or stomach – by being versatile.

It mimics the feel of the mattresses found in the most luxurious of hotel rooms, combining support and softness so that even the most restless sleeper who changes positions constantly during the night can find a single resting spot and relax. The Firm option is designed for back and stomach sleepers who need to float above the surface of the mattress and don’t want to feel as though they are ‘suffocating’ when sinking into the product.

Cooling technology

Between the use of coil springs that allow for excellent ventilation overnight and the fact that the organic cotton backed cover assists with incredible heat dissipation, you’ll find that this product sleeps cooler than most mattresses. Unlike typical memory foam products that retain heat and make for a difficult night’s sleep without the use of expensive technology, this mattress has implemented the easiest form of airflow available on the market, assuring that you sleep cool (especially good for light sleepers who overheat easily) without adding an additional cost to the manufacturing process, so the savings are passed onto the consumer.

Shipping

Most of the time, shipping is free for a mattress when you order online. That’s just the progression of the world today. But Saatva offers to go a step or two farther than providing free delivery. When you order this product, you get free shipping nationwide, as well as in-home set up and mattress removal service for your old product. Considering this isn’t available without an additional fee for most products, you’re getting an excellent deal on that part of it.

Size

When it comes to the range of sizes available for this product, you can’t beat the selection. Also note that, in order to more easily maneuver, the king and queen sizes are also available in split options. Sizes are as follows:

  • Twin – 38” x 75”
  • Twin XL – 38” x 80”
  • Full – 54” x 75”
  • Queen – 60” x 80”
  • King – 76” x 90”
  • California King – 72” x 84”

Warranty

While the manufacturer predicts that the mattress, if cared for properly, will last between 12 and 15 years, the warranty doesn’t cover this amount of time and has a few caveats. The 2-year warranty covers anything that could be considered a manufacturer defect, and it will be fully replaced in this instance. Also, if there is something of this nature found within 15 years of your purchase, it can be repaired at no charge.

Note that the warranty will be voided if the mattress has been used with a metal frame that does not meet certain requirements. You can guarantee the validity of the warranty by opting for a platform bed.

Also, there is a 120 in-home trial period after purchase that allows you to return the product for a complete refund if you are not fully satisfied at the end of the 4 month period.

Cost

The Saatva mattress is reasonably priced, considering the technology it incorporates and the fact that it is delivered, complete with set up and mattress disposal.

Conclusion

I personally go back and forth about the idea of a mattress made completely of memory foam, since I grew up with coil and spring mattresses. I also tend to sleep hot, and I’ve woken up a time or two in a memory foam bed so hot and sweaty that I couldn’t breathe or go back to sleep. With the Saatva mattress, you get memory foam with the added features of coils that are designed for a similar support and contour structure, as well as the features of ventilation and airflow that reduce the ability of the memory foam to hold in too much heat.

Overall, the construction, design, and options available for this product make it worth considering for just about any consumer looking for quality without too much out of pocket expense. I hope this review helped you in your decision to buy the Saatva mattress or one like it. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to comment and share below.
