Sleeping is something we all love and need. When it comes to comfortable sleep, it becomes our desire and everybody wants a sound and comfortable sleep as good sleep is an indication of sound physical and mental health. You can never sleep in comfort unless your bed is good. After a long day of work, you need a good bed and a soft and comfortable mattress to have a sound sleep. A good mattress is a key to sound sleep.
When it comes to mattresses, there are hundreds of brands available in the market and each of them claims to be the best. I personally believe that you just cannot buy a mattress for the sake of it as it is a matter of your sleep and health and you must absolutely not compromise with it. You must research very well before buying any mattress and compare it with others who claim they are best in the market. One of the things that i do is to ask my personal contacts about anything that i buy. I take suggestions from them and sometimes ask them to even ask their contacts. If not, the best thing can anybody do is to search online.
How i searched for my mattress?
While i wasn’t sure which mattress to buy, i contacted all my friends who purchased a mattress recently and took down a few names in my diary. Since mattresses are not cheap, good research was always required to save some extra bucks. After noting down the names, i started searching for each of them online to see the positive and negative unbiased reviews of people.
After a lot of research, i came across the name called Saatva mattress. Many of my friends and contacts recommended me the Saatva mattress and when i searched it on the web, i could only find the positive reviews. There was a site called Yelp where i could see negative reviews about the mattress and that led to a situation of a dilemma for me. Now, the thing was, how could everybody say good things about Saatva mattress and only one site criticising it.
Well now the question was, is saatva mattress good? Yes, of course, it is good. I had been to my friend’s places many times where some of them have been using saatva mattress and i was already quite impressed with it and it was just this Yelp site that created a sense of hesitation for me. Although i hardly believe in website reviews as most of them are biased or paid nowadays but since it was only criticising the saatva mattress, i had to rethink.
How my doubts got cleared
This website which posted negative reviews about Saatva mattress created doubts in my mind and i had to clear it anyhow as i already made my mind for it. Also, there was saatva mattress for sale in a nearby store so that tempted me too. Before approaching the retail store or the company’s website, i decided to visit a friend’s place who was already using Saatva mattress since last 2-3 years. He was married and the couple has been using the mattress since quite a long-time now.
As i was invited inside his bedroom, the first look of the mattress was amazing. Thick, long and was of white color that attracted me instantly. With his permission i sat on the mattress and let me tell you guys, it was the most comfortable thing on earth. It was neither too hard nor too soft but just perfect. I couldn’t resist myself on lying down and the excellent support of the mattress to the body was so comforting. I could have slept for hours and hours on this.
I also visited the Saatva’s website and the site had tons of valuable information. There were no bragging words or extra words that were not required. Only valuable information and the things you must know before purchasing the mattress were mentioned and i was quite impressed with the site
The look and feel of this mattress were so amazing that i finally decided to purchase one for myself.
Types of Saatva Mattress
When i looked into their website, i could see mainly 3 types of mattresses from Saatva. Plush Soft, Luxury Firm and Firm and according to the website, the Luxury Firm was the best seller. I personally went to the store and even the store manager told me that 80% of the customers preferred the Luxury Firm over other variants. I am telling you guys the type and the specialities of each variant as told to me by the store manager.
The Plush Soft mattress variant is a variant which is quite popular as well besides the other one mentioned earlier. The softer foams and extra padding on the pillow top gives a deep body-hugging feel which gives you a comfortable sleep and keeps you relaxed for a longer time. Out of the three variants, Plush Soft is the softest one and is often preferred by the people who are light in weight and who prefer softest of foams in their beds. If you are somebody who sleeps sideways, this variant of mattress is perfect for you. This kind of mattresses are mostly preferred by big hotels and are used for commercial purposes as people prefer softest mattresses while in their stay in hotels.
The Luxury Firm variant of the mattress as told by the store manager is the best selling mattress in the USA. This variant comes with a moderate cushion which makes it perfect for long time sleep. The cushion is neither too hard nor too soft which is why it is preferred the most out of all the three variants. It can be used at homes as well as for commercial purposes in hotels. It is excellent for a range of every sleep position and gives you a comfortable and peaceful sleep all night long. Out of 100 people who purchase Saatva mattress, 82% of the customers purchase the Luxury Firm variant. The store manager also told me that with the increased usage of this variant of the mattress, many people said that they had a significant reduction in their back pain which was excellent. No matter if you are purchasing this for your hotel or personally for your bedroom, this Luxury Firm mattress ensures longer, peaceful and comfortable sleep all night.
If your doctor has suggested you to use a hard mattress, this variant is for you. Also, some people don’t like to sleep on a soft mattress as they feel uncomfortable in it. One of my uncles has the same problem and he always uses a firm and hard mattress in his bed. For such people, the Firm variant is the best. This mattress is also suitable for people who sleep on their stomach as it feels very relaxing on your stomach. This mattress actually gives you a feeling that you are sleeping on the top of it rather than sinking in.
Engineering Behind Saatva Mattress
No matter whether you are using Plush Soft, Luxury Firm or the Firm variant, saatva mattresses are designed to give you utmost comfort every minute you are sleeping on it. Saatva mattress is designed in such a way that most of the people with neck pain or back pain report significant reduction in it and are very satisfied with the mattress.
As told by the manager and according to the data available on their website, 42% of the people have reported relief in their back pain after using saatva mattress for a longer time. The characteristics of Saatva mattress which you must know before purchasing it are given below.
Reduces Back and Joint pain
As discussed above, Saatva mattress has considerable involvement in reducing back and joint pains and many people have been benefited from it. Its plush Euro pillow top gives cushion support to your back, hips, shoulders and neck and reduces pressure in these areas relaxing all the joints and back muscles.
As explained by the manager, the Saatva mattresses are designed with Lumbar zone support technology which is active wire support in the center of the mattress that gives excellent support to your spine and gives your spine a proper alignment thus giving the support and comfort it needs during those long hours of sleep.
Approved by the Chiropractor
One of the best things about saatva mattress which i personally liked is the fact that it is approved by the Chiropractors Association. The Congress of Chiropractic State Association has approved Saatva mattress to be the perfect mattress for sleep. With such approval, all my doubts regarding its health benefits have been cleared instantly. I have also heard that saatva mattresses are suggested by leading Chiropractors of the USA.
My personal experience.
After all the researches through websites, my personal contacts and from the store manager, i decided to purchase the Luxury Firm variant of the Saatva mattress for myself. Since this variant was the best seller and recommended from the leading Chiropractors in the USA, it already had an upper hand for me while i was in the store for purchase. The word ‘Saatva’ means truth and everything associated with the company had truth in it. They will never pressurise you for buying instantly to get some extra discounts. If they have a discount, it will be fixed and you will get what is offered that day.
Since i wanted a large mattress, i purchased a king size Luxury Firm variant which was delivered to me in no time. There was a tight plastic wrapping around the mattress to protect it from all sorts of wear and tear which was amazing. When the mattress was placed on the bed, it looked wonderful and I and my wife could not resist lying down on it. The softness, the quality of the fabric and the support to the back was exceptional.
Trust me guys, I and my wife did not have such a peaceful and sound sleep in years and i never felt that awesome support to my back in years. The mattress was literally breathing with our every move and that was so comforting.
Apart from comfort and price obviously, Saatva Mattress warranty was another main factor why i purchased this mattress. The product comes with 15 years of non-prorated warranty which is just huge. In case of any issues in the first 2 years, Saatva will completely replace the mattress and send a brand new piece to you deeming it ‘defective’.
In the next 13 years, they will repair and recover the mattress with a transportation charge of $99 each way. As far as i know, this is the best warranty service you will get in any luxury mattress in the USA.
Saatva Mattress Accessory
If you want some extra layer of comfort and coolness on your mattress, saatva mattress topper is the one you must buy. The topper comes in three variants named Graphite, Latex and High-Density Foam. Each variant of the topper has a specific use for your particular requirement. Graphite gives you a layer of cooling surface, Latex gives your spine, a proper alignment while the 1.5-inch high-density foam evenly distributes your body weight throughout the mattress and gives you an instant relief.
One of the biggest competitors of saatva mattress is the Casper mattress. Even when i was doing my research, the first thing for me was Saatva mattress vs Casper. When it comes to Saatva, it has many advantages over Casper and is better in many fields. As far as firmness is concerned, both the mattresses are almost equal in firmness but when you sleep on Casper, you sink in more as compared to Saatva which might be uncomfortable for many people. So, when it comes to competition, Saatva has an upper hand for sure.
Saatva Mattress vs Casper
Saatva is one of the very early founders in the industry of online mattress as they have been selling luxury mattress for years. On the other hand Casper is also a well established and popular brand in the industry of mattress. Both the mattress have their own prospects and controversies but the question is that who is king of sleep. Let’s have a look.
Saatva mattress has a combination of luxurious pillow top layer with two sections of coils which will give you classic innerspring feel. It comprises of 2 layers of steel coils and this coil system helps in increasing comfort and longevity. Saatva was launched in the year 2010 and they started selling mattresses since then. The top layer in Saatva is for comfort, the second layer is for lumbar support, and the third layer is for support. These layers add great comfort and softness without any compromise. Saatva is ranked as 8 to 8.5 out of 10 in terms of firmness. Saatva is great for all weight groups and in all positions. Also for those who prefer hot sleep and high profile beds.
Casper is in this business since 2014. The bed is considered a three-tiered comfort system with layers of poly foam and memory foam. The bed is considered medium in terms of firmness as it is rated between 5 to 5.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale. Casper offers two essential mattresses which are memory mattress known as Casper essentials and memory foam known as Casper wave. Overall Casper mattresses are great for those who prefer medium firmness and close body conforming. Sleepers who experience pain in their neck, shoulders, and back. Casper may not be suitable if you weigh more than 230 pounds and also if you want a firmer mattress that offers minimal conforming.
The website Yelp has written a lot about Saatva mattress criticising almost every aspect of it. But trust me, i have been using it personally now and I and my wife are extremely satisfied with the mattress. With the variant, i have chosen and the price i have paid, this is the best mattress you will get in the USA.
