A Closer Look at the Saatva
Choosing a mattress is a big decision, so you’ll want to take an indepth look at the Saatva mattress before deciding.
The Saatva mattress comes covered in an antimicrobial organic cotton cover that cannot be removed for washing. The upper most layer is a euro pillow top to give you additional cushion and comfort for your sleep.
Underneath the pillow top is a thin layer of memory foam that offers support to not only the lumbar area but also provides comfort by relieving pressure from the shoulders and hips. This thin layer of memory foam covers a layer of individually wrapped micro coils that help with contouring and support.
At the base of the Saatva bed is a layer of steel coils that help to provide extra bounce and lift to the mattress. The steel coils also work well to prevent sagging over time. Surrounding the mattress is a foam encasement that helps to provide excellent edge support.
Feel and Firmness
What you’ll notice the first time you lie down on this bed is that it has a traditional innerspring feel. You will also notice that the micro coils and memory foam will contour your body in just the right places.
The Saatva is on the higher end of medium firm. You will also notice a fair amount of motion transfer with the Saatva mattress. If you are a light sleeper that has a sleeping partner that moves around a lot, this coil on coil bed may not be right for you.
While this mattress does provide an adequate amount of amount of pressure relief on all sleeping positions, it still leaves some pressure on the shoulders and hips when in a side sleeping position. The Saatva mattress is a best fit for stomach and back sleepers as these positions are supported best by the design of the mattress.
The Saatva mattress offers support for heavier sleepers on all positions; however, for many they felt that they sank into the mattress more than they would like. While the Saatva provides pressure relief for most sleeping positions, stomach sleepers would be better served by one of Saatva’s firmer options.
The Saatva mattress comes with a 15 year warranty. During the first two years of ownership, if there are any defects in either the workmanship or materials of the mattress, Saatva will replace the mattress at no cost; however, in years three to 15 there will be a $99 transportation cost for each way to repair and recover the mattress.
Saatva also offers a Fairness Replacement Option. Under this option, owners have the ability to receive a brand new mattress at any point in the 15 year warranty period.
The Fairness Replacement Option allows owners to keep the original defective mattress and also receive a new mattress at a discount of up to 60 percent plus a $99 transportation charge. The Fairness Replacement Option can only be used once.
