Saatva Mattress: Review

In a sea of mattresses, Saatva stands out. The company combines the reliability and stability of classic innerspring technology with pillow top comfort, and it’s one of the few brands that allows you to order an innerspring mattress online.

Saatva uses high-quality materials for its mattresses. Its prices are generally higher than other brands, but they’re still accessible enough for most consumers. The company also offers some additional features like white glove delivery to make the expense worth your while.

Customization Options and Special Features 

Each Saatva mattress comes with a 180-night trial, free in-room white glove delivery and setup, and free removal of your existing mattress and foundation. All mattresses are made with organic cotton that’s breathable and cooling, as well as an antimicrobial treatment that inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew. Other special features and customization options vary depending on the model. 

To continually promote and improve its customers’ sleep experience, Saatva offers sleep accessories, including pillows, sheets, duvet covers and more.

Pillows

Saatva sells three different types of pillows: the Saatva Latex Pillow, the Down Alternative Pillow and the Memory Foam Pillow. The Saatva Latex Pillow is breathable and responsive, the Down Alternative Pillow is hypoallergenic and plush, and the Memory Foam Pillow is cooling and contours for support. Each pillow comes in queen or king sizes, and price varies depending on type and size, though it typically ranges between $115 and $185.

Sheets

Saatva sells four different sheet sets to complement your mattress: the Organic Sateen Sheet Set, the Organic Percale Sheet Set, the Linen Sheet Set and the Embroidered Sateen Sheet Set. The Sateen sets and the Percale set are all made of 100% organic cotton, while the linen set is made of 100% Belgian linen. The sets come with a flat sheet, fitted sheet and two pillowcases, and range from sizes twin to king. The Percale Sheet Set is the least expensive, while the linen sheets are the most expensive. Prices range from $115 to $415, depending on the sheet set and size you’re buying.

Duvet Covers and Comforters

You also have the option to purchase Saatva duvet covers and comforters that seamlessly match your sheets. There are four different Saatva duvet covers: the Organic Sateen Duvet Cover Set, the Linen Duvet Cover Set, the Embroidered Sateen Duvet Cover Set and the Organic Percale Duvet Cover Set. The duvet sets come with a duvet cover and two pillow shams. If you prefer a comforter, Saatva offers the All-Year Comforter, a down alternative comforter made of organic percale cotton. These all come in sizes Twin/TwinXL, Full/Queen and King/Cal King.

Blankets and Quilts

In addition to bedding sets, Saatva also sells blankets and quilts. The Organic Weighted Blanket comes in two different sizes and starts at $345 for the single size, 12-pound version. It’s made of 100% organic cotton velvet and comes in two different colors. The Organic Cotton Channel Quilt is an all-season quilt made of organic cotton that comes in three different sizes and ranges in price from $215 to $325. The Organic Velvet Diamond Quilt’s plush thickness makes it a more luxe option and comes in two different sizes for $345 or $395.  

Mattress Accessories

Other add-ons to the Saatva experience include a Waterproof Mattress Protector, Organic Mattress Pad and Saatva Mattress Topper. While these aren’t necessary for your mattress, they are meant to elevate comfort and protect your mattress so it lasts longer. 

Warranties and Returns

With the exception of the crib mattress, all Saatva mattresses come with a 180-night sleep trial. If you aren’t happy with your Saatva mattress during the trial period, you can call to schedule a pickup and receive a refund. You’ll also pay a $99 processing fee.

What Sleep Experts Say

Saatva mattresses appear highly rated across the board. Derek Hales, founder and editor-in-chief of NapLab.com, has tested almost every Saatva mattress and says there’s no mattress in the line he wouldn’t recommend. 

Hales’ favorite options include the Saatva Classic and the Loom & Leaf. “Saatva Classic is arguably the best coil-on-coil mattress available online,” he says, noting the affordable prices and varying firmness options

As for the Loom & Leaf model, “It’s a luxury memory foam mattress with incredible hug, contour, pressure relief and support,” says Hales. “Its material construction is incredibly robust, using high-quality and high-density memory foam and poly foam materials. Over the last seven years, I have tested over 170 different mattresses. Out of those, my wife and I choose to sleep on the Loom & Leaf.” 

However, Hales notes that the Zenhaven latex design is expensive for the material. Regarding the Soliare, “If you absolutely have to have adjustable firmness, by all means, it’s a good choice. That said, for most sleepers, the ability to dynamically change the firmness is a feature that just won’t be used as often,” he says. 

Experts also love Saatva’s organic materials. “The last thing you want (besides being uncomfortable) is to be breathing in chemicals all night long while you sleep,” says Laura Decesaris, a functional medicine-trained health strategist and wellness coach from Scottsdale, Arizona. Several of her clients use and love the Loom & Leaf mattress, and enjoy the ability to choose between a firm or relaxed-firm model, she adds.

Like Hales, there isn’t a Saatva mattress Decesaris wouldn’t recommend thanks to the company’s wide price range and selection. 

What Users Say 

Saatva mattresses have positive user reviews overall, with consumers mostly raving about the comfort and back support. Most customers also praise the customer service. 

A 5-star review on Consumer Affairs from a king-size Saatva mattress user in Oklahoma reads, “We are large frame folk, with a collective weight of about 430 pounds. This Saatva mattress has been excellent. After six years, it still doesn’t have body impressions.” 

Another 5-star Consumer Affairs review from a customer in Utah said while the Zenhaven mattress wasn’t their favorite, they were able to get a different one through the warranty. “It was a great mattress and it was comfortable enough, but I could never quite get to the point of total comfort. It’s a different feel and I think I missed the traditional mattress.” The mattress was exchanged for the Saatva Classic Firm and users noted, “It was very easy and the agent did a great job of helping me figure out which mattress I needed.”

Not everyone raves about their Saatva experience, though. A 3-star Consumer Affairs review from a Georgia customer complained about their mattress’ cooling features. “The cotton material is good and the product does offer some level of lumbar support. However, their claims about heat dispersion, durability and support system for the rest of the body is questionable. [The] mattress helps a little with heat dispersion, but not as much as they claim on the site.” They also noted being disappointed with the durability, as the product started feeling uneven and unsupportive. “Overall, [it’s] not the highest quality mattress in the world, but I think it’s fair given its price point. [I] would only recommend [it] perhaps for those who are on a budget.” 

Most negative reviews shared with Consumer Affairs and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) were directed toward shipping delays.

Who Should Purchase a Saatva Mattress? 

Each Saatva mattress has a specific purpose, covering a wide range of needs. Users who are looking for a luxurious mattress at an affordable price might consider a Saatva mattress, as well as those who prefer natural and organic materials and online purchasing options with responsive customer service.
