Saatva Mattress Findings

I received a free Saatva mattress for review. I’m happy to report that the 2017  Saatva reviews are positive and I can fully recommend this mattress to anyone looking for a luxury mattress that is the same in terms of quality as a mattress sometimes double 2 the price found in a traditional mattress showroom.

The Saatva mattress has great support and the motion transfer is minimal. I tested the Saatva Luxury Firm. Below is a video to give you an idea of bounce and motion transfer on the Saatva. If you want a bed with bounce, there’s still nothing that will beat an inner spring mattress:

The Saatva Luxury Firm mattress is at a medium firmness level.  For instance I found the WinkBed to be a little firmer than the Saatva and I would classify the Winkbed as a firm mattress. However both have good support and the level of softness for the top layer is really a matter of preference but I do think the Saatva will appeal to most peoples firmness preference.

How Much Does the Saatva Mattress Cost?

Below are the current prices of the mattress as listed on the Saatva website. Saatva really doesn’t do coupon codes so there’s no sense in searching for one. They don’t do holiday promotions either which is nice since you don’t have time when you are going to purchase the mattress and worry about losing out on a better deal.

Saatva Mattress Bed Construction

The Saatva mattress is built with individually wrapped coils. This means that each coil works independently which means less motion transfer and more contouring to every curve of your body.


I am particularly impressed with the tufting on the top layer of the mattress. You sink in just the right amount with the Saatva mattress.  The standard depth is 14.5 inches which is one of the thickest beds I have reviewed. You can also get a slimmer version at 11.5 inches if you want a more modern look. The 11.5 inch version of the Saatva will work on an adjustable base. The cushy pillow top is a unique feature to Saatva that gives it such great pressure relief.


This mattress also has good edge support. That means you can use the whole surface of the mattress. If you get to the edge you won’t feel like you’re going to fall off.

Here’s another updated photo for my 2018 review of the Saatva that shows sinkage from another angle.

As far as cooling, Saatva does a great job with temperature regulation. The organic cotton top is very soft and breathable.

If you’re looking for a quality inner spring mattress that has a soft cushioning top layer with great lumbar support, this is it. I weigh over 200 lbs. and had no issues with caving or lack of support.

What I hear from many people is that they will buy an innerspring mattress from a brick and mortar store and sleep great on it for a few months then will notice impressions. Saatva has solid construction and will hold up over time. Best of all you are saving money up front by getting a superior product at a fraction of the cost of comparable high end store brands!

Saatva offers a 120 day home trial  for an inner spring mattress. That means you get to try out the mattress in the comfort of your own home for about 4 months and if you don’t like it for any reason you get a full refund.

A traditional mattress store will give you store credit instead of a cash refund. This means you’re actually stuck with whatever mattress they have to offer. Before you get trapped, get a Saatva and experience it yourself. It will set your expectations much higher for what you should be getting in terms of price and feel for a mattress.

I have slept on many innerspring beds both from traditional stores like Slumberland, Sleepys, Sleep Train, Mattress Firm, etc. If more people realized the value they get with a Saatva as compared to some of the higher-end brands offered by Sealy, Serta, and Simmons, there would be a whole lot less brick and mortar stores! With Saatva, I have no complaints.

Saatva also offers quality foundations along with white glove delivery. That means they will bring the bed into your house and room of your choice and remove your old mattress. With many online companies, you need to figure that part out on your own.

I could write all kinds of reviews about brick and mortar beds but at the end of the day you are still paying too much for what you get and that’s why they don’t warrant any space on my site. They just aren’t a good value.

Another point to note is that people often ask, can a Saatva mattress be used on an adjustable bed? The answer is, yes. the 11.5-inch version will work on an adjustable base the 14.5 version will not.
