The Saatva Loom & Leaf Mattress Review 2022

The Saatva Loom And Leaf Mattress is one of few online mattresses not compressed and packaged in a small box. The company physically delivers your fully boxed mattress and sets it up in your bedroom at no extra charge.

If I had to sum up my Saatva Loom And Leaf Mattress review in just a few words, I’d simply say that customers love it because it’s unlike any mattress they’ve ever owned.

The reverence for this mattress by its owners is a bit unusual, but the reviews we’ve studied as well as our own research and tear down of this luxury memory foam mattress back up some pretty wild claims.

Because the Loom And Leaf Mattress is made a using vastly superior grade of memory foam than less expensive popular brands, owners often refer to them as “their best investment” or “an investment grade mattress”.

Because shopping for a memory foam mattress is so exhausting, and because the use of the term “memory foam” is kind of annoying and ubiquitous, this brand gets overlooked simply because it requires more of a financial commitment that the standard “slabs of foam” option that sell for $700-800.

Offering a luxurious quilted outer top made with organic cotton, The Saatva Loom And Leaf Mattress is chemical free, even incorporating a natural, thistle based fire barrier fabric rather than a silica or chemical application, to meet Federal Flammability Laws.

Bottom line, The Saatva Loom And Leaf Mattress is made using a much higher density of visco-elastic “memory foam”, lasts far longer without mashing down and compressing that less dense versions (such as 3lb., typically used in memory foam mattresses selling for under $800), and gives better pressure relief.

At 12″ tall, the mattress is a bit sleeker in design that overstuffed and taller designs, making transfer in and out the mattress easier.

Bottom line, The Saatva Loom And Leaf Mattress is made using a much higher density of visco-elastic “memory foam”, lasts far longer without mashing down and compressing that less dense versions (such as 3lb., typically used in memory foam mattresses selling for under $800), and gives better pressure relief.

The higher the density, the slower that “melting in ” sensation takes when lying on a mattress made with the stuff, and The Saatva Loom And Leaf Mattress , because it is made using superior memory foam layers, is designed to embrace you rather than suck you into it. It’s also made with cooling gel foam layers strategically stacked in “cake layer” fashion to have an additive effect.

This means that each layer above the bottom support layer compliments what’s underneath. Unlike a typical memory foam mattress, which is made with two, maybe three layers of material covered with a simplistic outer fabric cover, the mechanics and material used to create the Saatva Loom And Leaf Mattress has a certain alchemy to it not found in stamped out imitators.

Bench built using specific densities and thicknesses for each component, the architecture of The Saatva Loom And Leaf Mattress optimizes pressure and pain relief better than most brands.

It’s more expensive. yeah, but Here’s why.

In a queen, the Saatva Loom And Leaf Mattress costs $2,099, but if you compare it to retail store brands for their so-called “Black” models, which are overstuffed innerspring mattresses, the price is comparable.

Why do actual owners consistently rate it around 8.5-9 out of 10 stars consistently? I wanted to find out myself, and field testing the mattress for comfort and support involved breaking down what is inside of it first.

You can choose from two options when you purchase a Saatva Loom And Leaf Mattress- relaxed firm, or regular firm. I tried them both, and here’s what I found.

If you consider the softer of the two options, relaxed firm, it’s important to remember that because this mattress is made using a higher density memory foam architecture, it’s not going to feel soft. You’re not going to bottom into it, and you won’t feel like you have to dig your way out of it to simply change positions.

Also, if you are sleeping with a partner, you won’t find yourself rolling into the middle of the mattress in one big ball, trapped inside. Rather, the experience if definitely like a beach sand sensation, a subtle melting in, with an easy, softer, yet supportive elevated feeling underneath.

The Saatva Loom And Leaf Mattress gives you two options, relaxed firm, and regular firm, to choose from. I recommend opting for the relaxed firm if you like a mattress that is more sumptuous and cushier up top.

Actually, even if you opt for the regular firm option, which is truly what I would call “medium firm”, you won’t feel like you’ve hit a dirt floor as you lie on your side, for example, which is the “knife’s edge” of your body at hips and shoulders.

From top down, the outer quilted top piece ( I call it the body contact section of the mattress) is crafted from organic cotton, so there is a really nice, softer feel to the mattress right from the get go.

It is also very breathable, and didn’t feel hot, even after lying on it for more than 30 minutes. Organic cotton helps with cooling, which is something many sleepers should really enjoy. Organic cotton helps to wick moisture away from the body as well, promotes evaporative cooling, and this keeps heat from stockpiling under your body through the night.

Comfort Layers: Cooling Gel Foam And 5LB Density Premium Memory Foam Layers

The Loom and Leaf mattress features a fairly complex blueprint, with four foam layers, the first three built in for comfort.

Underneath the quilted top section, the first layer is 2” of gel memory foam which has a 4 lb density and is convoluted, which assists with passive air movement.

Designed To Cool, Support, And Move Weight To Outside Edges

Using convoluted foam in a mattress design has always been the thing mattress designers like myself argue about.

After designing over 150 mattresses of my own over 25 years in the business, I can say that if a layer is 2″ thick and fairly dense, the benefit is pretty good.

Hot air will get pumped to the outer edge of the mattress. It’s a little like a built in AC system that can push out hot air every time you move.

The middle third of the comfort layer in this mattress has what Saatva calls a proprietary gel foam, and this helps to distribute weight horizontally rather than downward.

Beneath that, there is a 2” layer of denser memory foam, which is made using 5 lb density material, which is very durable and should provide amazing body contouring. This means that it will comfortable wrap up around the edges of your body and fill in those void areas such as lumbar regions between hips and middle to upper back.

In writing my Saatva Loom And Leaf Mattress review, I wanted to be sure and emphasize that you won’t typically find as much complexity in the design of a mattress, and that the overall effect on your body will be more pronounced than in other foam mattresses without a coil system.

Support Layer

The Loom and Leaf mattress is supported by a a thick layer of high density poly foam designed for support that is found generally, in other foam mattresses available online. The overall height of The Saatva Loom And Leaf Mattress is 12″ tall in either firmness option.

Made In USA, Delivery Experience, Warranty, And Trial Period Explained

Saatva builds their mattresses using a network of factories and assembly facilities throughout the USA. They even claim to have, on average, a facility within 100 miles of most urban centers, which means you can get your mattress shipped out and hand delivered to your bedroom within days.

Once your Saatva Loom And Leaf Mattress has been purchased, you’ll receive a phone call to schedule an in home setup, and the tech crew will even remove your old mattress at no extra charge.

The company offers a solid 180 night no questions asked trial period as well, though they do charge a $99 processing fee to cover the cost of gas and labor.

These are my thoughts on not offering the standard “free return shipping” policy that almost every company offers. Let’s say you pay $800 for a typical memory foam mattress purchased from one of hundreds of online stores.

Shipping and delivery return costs average around $250 for any typical mattress. Bottom line, these companies have to sacrifice on materials and complexity, and there is no way around this. You’ll get a mattress made with far more inferior components than a company who charges a nominal fee to cover expenses. It’s worth it.
