The Loom and Leaf mattress is a relatively new memory foam mattress on the market that was developed by the makers of Saatva.  I received a free Loom & Leaf mattress to review. After a few nights on this bed, I am very impressed. What struck me about this mattress is just how substantial it is.

Ordering

The Loom and Leaf mattress ordering process is slightly different than ordering a typical bed in a box mattress. That’s because this mattress does not come in a box. Instead you first enter your zip code to determine if it can be delivered to your area. Chances are this is not a problem. You can then choose your size of mattress as well as if you want a box spring or not. If you already have an adequate box spring or slats, this is not necessary. If in doubt about the integrity of your existing support, I would recommend buying one since you don’t want to wreck your mattress on an uneven foundation. I had a split queen foundation delivered and it is very sturdy and well made.  Once you place your order you will get a call in a few days to setup delivery. That process is very professional and seamless. You schedule your delivery date then get a more narrow delivery window a few days before the delivery date so you don’t feel tethered to your house all day. The moving company even called me 15 minutes before arrival which was a nice courtesy. If you like, Loom and Leaf can even haul away your old mattress.

Findings

The Loom and Leaf mattress is a heavy duty mattress. By that I mean that it is very substantial. I didn’t feel like I was going to bottom out on it when I plopped down on the mattress. That’s because it has a 5 lb. memory foam base layer.

In keeping with the substantial / heavy duty mattress theme, the Loom and Leaf is listed as being 12 inches in depth. However with the tufting on top, I found it to actually be a little deeper than that.

Speaking of the tufting on the top layer. If found this to be a very nice feature that you don’t find on many memory foam beds.

Aside from the tufting which adds to contouring, this mattress also incorporates cooling gel that also provides some support but more importantly cooling. The final distinctive feature of this mattress is the convoluted foam. This also promotes air circulation. The organic cotton top layer is a nice touch too.

Sleeping on the Loom and Leaf mattress was so nice. It won’t leave you with any pressure points which means less shifting around during the night. When my wife and I slept on it, we didn’t notice much motion transfer either that’s to be expected with a memory foam mattress. Below is a video illustrating the motion isolation.

 

Here’s a video that gives you idea of how squishy and how fast the Loom and Leaf mattress recovers. Very impressive.

The Loom and Leaf is a very well made and extremely comfortable mattress. It easily holds its own against top of the line store brands. Loom and Leaf offers a 75 day trial period. If you don’t like it you can return it for a full refund and won’t be tied to store credit.  I recommend this mattress for all types of sleepers. I get asked for recommendations for mattresses for heavy people. I am over 200 lbs and didn’t bottom out the mattress while jumping on it. It is substantial enough for a heavy couple that wants to get adequate support. If you are looking for the best mattress for heavy people, this is it! Definitely give the Loom and Leaf some serious consideration as your next luxury mattress. Shop Loom & Leaf Here.

Looking at other Loom and Leaf Reviews, I have found that they consistently seem to score this a little on the firmer side. I would say any Loom and Leaf reviews that rank this as softer may not have as much context reviewing other mattresses.

              I sit up in bed to watch tv, will this adversely affect my sleeping comfort when I lay down for the night to sleep?

                You mean will it damage the mattress? If that’s your question, no. It shouldn’t have any significant effect on the mattress. The Loom and Leaf mattress uses a dense foam and is very resilient.

              No that’s not wat I mean. I want to know if the depression caused by me sitting for an hour where my head and upper body will be will affect my comfort when I actually lay down for the night

                No, there should not be an affect. The mattress will recover from any impression quickly. This is true for both the Loom and Leaf and Leesa.

              Trying to decide between the loom&plead and novosbed, I like that the novosbed is 200$ cheaper in King but I live in Texas where it gets hot in the summer, can you post a thermal camera test of the L&L to compare with the novosbed? I am an engineer and I like having data to base my decision.
              Thanks for the great reviews.

                I no longer have the Loom and Leaf to do the thermal test but I found it to sleep cooler than the Novosbed.

              What firmness was the bed that you received? I am a heavier woman at 260 while my boyfriend is at 155-160lbs. I am worried that their universal firmness might be too soft for us due to my weight or total couple weight. Can you tell me more about your experience on the bed in terms of your weight?

                I weigh around 200 lbs. I did not find this to be too soft.

              We had a queen L&L for about a month. This was our first memory foam bed. (Besides the beautyrest that we returned after a week because of offgassing). We really enjoyed the comfort of this bed. I’m about 250lbs and a side sleeper, and felt like this supported me well, with minimal disruption to my wife who is about 80lb less. We didn’t really like the edge support, but we don’t have a big frame of reference. It was something we were getting used to, but I used to like sleeping on the edge. The thing I disliked the most was the offgassing. Again, I don’t have a huge frame of reference, and I have a very acute sense of smell, but this bed also made my eyes burn! Unfortunately that was a bit disconcerting, and frankly just not acceptable. My wife wanted to keep the bed, but our main reason for finding the right mattress is for good health. We have a latex bed on order currently.

              What’s the difference between Saatva and Loom & Leaf? Would you recommend a Lull or a L&L? I’ve had back surgery, facing a hip replacement and hot flashes at night. I also don’t want my husband to constantly fell me moving aroun in bed. I sleep on both my side and back.. Thank you.

                I found the Loom and Leaf to be a little firmer than the Saatva and Lull. The Loom and Leaf and Lull are memory foam mattresses while the Saatva is an innerspring which will have more motion transfer.

              I’m interested in the loom and leaf. On the website they compare the medium-firm model to a Tempur pedic Cloud Lux Breeze, so I went to Sleepy’s to test it out. I found the Tempur-Pedic very soft. I would prefer something a bit more firm but not “real firm”. Also I weigh about 260lbs and my wife is 130 lbs. Do you think the medium firm or firm would be better for me? Have you slept on the Tempur Pedic Cloud Lux Breeze? How do you think they compare?

              disregard my ratings. I’ve not slept on this bed.

              my name is also bradley. i too would like to know how firm the relaxed firm is compared to the cloud luxe breeze. the cloud luxe i tested out was extremely soft, and the reviews all seem to think the loom & leaf is a bit firmer. i don’t quite see how L&L can compare the two.
