Introduction

The Saatva mattress has combined the best of both worlds by teaming two layers of innerspring with a pillow top and sturdy foam edge support wrapping around the entire mattress. They’ve even gone one step further with their mattress design by giving you the option of customizing your mattresses firmness. Their three available options span from Soft to Firm, with their “Luxury Firm” option being the most popular. 

Thanks to this kind of customization, the Saatva mattress works for the majority of users, regardless of sleep style as you can choose the design that fits your needs. The two layers of coils help to provide top-level comfort while keeping the mattress breathable and cool. And, the enhanced edge support layer means you feel supported no matter where you lie on the mattress.

The brand also works hard to keep their mattresses as eco-friendly as possible by using recycled steel, bio-based foams, and organic cotton. All the foam used in their mattresses is CertiPUR-US certified too, so you know its free from any potentially harmful chemicals.

In a nutshell

What you need to look out for

Highlights

The Saatva mattress offers you three possible firmness levels to choose from, so you can customize to it your needs and sleep preferences. While their medium firm option, “Luxury Firm” is the most popular choice, they also offer a very soft option and a firm option if that’s more your style. 

It also comes out on top for temperature regulation thanks to its innerspring design. They are able to keep you cool and fresh throughout the night, despite the use of memory foam in the top layer and for edge support.

In summary

The Saatva mattress was wholly quite impressive for our testing team who gave it strong marks across the board, especially when it came to edge support, back sleeping, and warranty length. The only area it dropped a few points in was durability, but this is to be expected when it comes to mattresses with springs.

Hands on review

What's it made from

The Saatva mattress is a hybrid and combines two layers of coils with a pillow top to provide optimal support and comfort.

Top Layer

Luxury Euro Pillow Top – With more cushioning built-in than your standard pillow top, Saatva has created a luxuriously comfy top layer that helps to provide you with the support you need to enjoy a restful night’s sleep.

2nd Layer

Individually Wrapped Coils – Next up there is a layer of 416 individually wrapped coils that respond and contour to your body while working hard to reduce motion transfer. And, because they are individually wrapped, they help to promote airflow through your mattress while you sleep.

3rd Layer

Durable Steel Coils Support – On the base layer, there are 884 tempered steel coils that are durable and supportive to make sure your mattress lasts for as long as possible.

Mattress Cover

The cover on the Saatva mattress is made from organic cotton and comes with built-in antimicrobial fabric treatment and an attractive damask bronze trim for a luxury look. Unlike many other mattress brands, the cover on the Saatva mattress is not removable, so cannot be machine washed.

Side sleepers

Despite being the most common sleeping position, side sleepers will find that the Saatva mattress may not be the optimal choice for them. This is especially true for more lightweight sleepers as you may find the Saatva is too firm for you to feel comfortable on.

Sinkage and edge support

The Saatva mattress has built-in edge support in the form of a foam layer that wraps around the entire mattress. This layer works to keep you feeling secure and supported, even when sleeping on the edge of the mattress. 

Depending on the firmness level you select, the Saatva mattress comes with different levels of sinkage. Their “Plush Soft” is ideal for back sleepers who love to sink deep into their mattress, whereas the “Firm” option works better for stomach sleepers who like to feel fully supported.

Heat retention

Thanks to its dual coil construction, the Saatva mattress does an excellent job or regulation your temperature while you sleep, despite the inclusion of memory foam. It is a great option for those who tend to run hot while they sleep, or for those who live in warmer climates.

Unboxing

There is very little off-gassing with the Saatva mattress, with our testers reporting little to no odor when receiving their new mattress. Your Saatva mattress is delivered and set up for you, all free of charge. And, they’ll even remove your old mattress for you at the same time.

Is this mattress right for you?

Both our testing team and the general public are big fans of the Saatva mattress. They have managed to create a product that works for different sleep styles and preferences thanks to the ability to customize your firmness level. It’s also a great choice for couples and those who run hot while they sleep thanks to it’s increased breathability and motion transfer reduction.

No mattress is perfect though, and the Saatva is no exception. All this high-quality craftsmanship does come with a big price point, and more lightweight sleepers may struggle to feel as comfortable and support as their larger counterparts.

In conclusion

In conclusion, Saatva has produced an exceptional mattress that provides both excellent support and pain relief while remaining comfortable and luxurious while you sleep. It scores highly across the board and brings with it a glowingly positive online review score. A great choice for anyone looking for a high-quality mattress who doesn’t have to count their pennies.
