I bought a Saavta bed for my wife and I about 4 years ago (queen). The first few years it was a great bed, 5 stars! But there are some problems with it sagging in the middle. My wife and are no more than 285 pounds combined so it’s not like we are putting a lot of weight on the bed. We have already flipped the mattress once and added a topper. But it’s to the point we notice it again and it’s impacting our sleep. I wanted to really like this bed, but they’re gonna have to fix this sagging issue. I have to go shop for a new bed now… Maybe an AmeriSleep.

Hi we purchased a saavta king size mattress they talked me into a firm and said most people like the firmness, BUT no good we sent it back it was way too firm. So we went with the plush which was good, unfortunately 2 years later the mattress is very uncomfortable it’s sagging, my head feels lower than my legs ugh!!! So disappointing!! Now we need to spend more money for another mattress. Together we’re approximately 400lbs.

I purchased my Saatva Mattress, firm, last year after giving up on a Serta. The first few weeks were wonderful but then the mattress started sagging in the center right where my hips are. It made it very uncomfortable for my herniated disc and for sciatica. While the mattress does not cost much, I am disappointed that it was gone in less than 1 year. I wish I had stored my Serta in another room.

hi,
i am only 110 lbs and have a bad back. i usually like a firm bed. will the luxury firm be from enough for me? i do not like the feel of being enveloped by a bed where it is difficult to turn over in it . does this bed feel this way? Tory

I think it could be a great option. It definitely doesn’t make it feel like your mattress is enveloping you. Let us know how it works out!

I purchased a SAATVA mattress, the California King in their softest option. I had done a lot of “research” and had slept for many years on an innerspring mattress I loved which had finally worn out. When the mattress was delivered, I was very impressed with how pretty it looked, and I was under the impression it was organic (it is not), but from the first night I had issues. First of all, it did not conform to my body and I was told it would take some time to break in. After a few weeks, when I didn’t feel this was happening, I was sent a topper which I was told other customers love and it would help during the break-in period. The topper came and it was also pretty and looked nice. After two nights of sleeping on it, I cut the cover off to see what was inside, and it was, and I do not exaggerate, a piece of the cheapest foam (not memory) and was even faded in big portions, like it had been used before or put out in the sun. I made another call and talked to a manager about sending out something like this and how it might affect consumer confidence about what was actually in the mattress itself, since I then had the most consuming desire to cut the mattress open and look in there, because as the nights wore on, I would sometimes have a few moments where I would think “this isn’t so bad” as I lay in bed, but more often couldn’t believe how it felt I was sleeping on a cardboard box with some flimsy foam and fabric on top. I bought a high-end cover from Seattle (LOVE IT) and tried a memory foam topper which got good reviews but the density was so poor it had no impact. I basically tried everything under the sun to make this mattress work as I didn’t want to send it back, have no mattress in my bedroom, and start down this road of research and possible failure again, but in the end, I had to send it back. So here’s the next part of the story. Because I had to do something immediately, I did further research, then went with what I found in a good price range (MUCH less than SAATVA) which was a Serta Perfect Sleeper, without a pillow-top, firm. I then purchased a DENSE 3″ memory foam mattress cover, as recommended by a couple of people on sites I had gone to. It conforms to my body but, unlike the COSTCO version I once had, does not make me feel sucked in and like I am sleeping in bread dough. So, that first night, I got up in this combination and actually felt like I had gone to bed-heaven. THIS. BED. IS. A. DREAM. I have back and neck issues, and am a side sleeper, so my arms often feel pinched off and this was especially bad on the SAATVA. Right now, I knock wood, and actually get nervous after all the bed drama I have been through that one night I will climb in and it won’t be this way, but it has been a while, and EVERY SINGLE NIGHT I get in bed and wonder how I got it so right, and also wonder where I can go to inform others. First of all, stay away from built in pillow-tops. Get a well-built mattress (Serta is the best selling in the world, and if I get 8 years out of it sleeping like this, I’ll buy another. Much less, as I said, than SAATVA), get a high density memory foam (3″ and something like 6-8 lbs works beautifully for me), and cover it well (Slumbercloud is what I bought and it keeps cool, looks beautiful, and is worth the money). All, in, I have LESS than I did for SAATVA but the sleeping experience is like sleeping on the ground vs. sleeping, literally, in a cloud. I don’t want to jinx myself and my great luck in finding the perfect combination, but I doubt ANYONE wouldn’t feel the same about my bed. If I had a SAATVA and this side by side, the comparison would be laughable. All that said, the customer service at SAATVA is absolutely superior. The are professionals in that way. But I can’t sleep on customer service. The bed has to be up to snuff. Mine now is, and I hope someone who is up nights unable to sleep looking for the best bed option to stop the madness finds this post, and is able to get some valuable information to help them in their search.

Thank you for taking the time to post your experience and share your secrets for the perfect sleep experience ! Like you were doing …I’m up at night researching and comparing as well! So your bed is called the Serta perfect sleeper? I’m waiting on the saatva to come (it’s being built) I’m worried sick I won’t like it and if it doesn’t work out il go for the Serta …

I would like to have more information on what actually does the warranty cover. Sagging, thread separation, tears etc…? Also is there a prorated deduction if this does occur and a new mattress is warranted?

Wayne Koch

I am concerned about sagging in the center. Is sagging covered in the warranty??

Saatva charge $99 handling fee to take mattress back during the “free” 120 days try (so, it is nor free…)

I ordered and slept on a luxury firm mattress for one month. It was not as firm as I needed it to be with herniated disc and 2 arthoscoptic knee surgeries.
I called 1 wk. ago for an exchange to a firm. I received my mattress today. I immeadiately feel the difference. After
peurchasing and returning about 5 matresses from other companies I must say that I have fount the right mattress
now. Mary B. 3/8/ 18???

So glad to hear! We’d love to hear how it works out for you.

Hi Jess,

I’m wondering when you tried the Saatva that you reviewed here and if anything about it’s inner construction or outer cover has changed since your review?

Also, did you review their “Flagship” luxury firm mattress here.

Thank you,
Linda

Please share your experience good and bad using Saatva twin beds, adjustable. We will be replacing a king, nonadjustable. Is the Saatva the best choice or can you recommend something better?

Does it Work on Adjustable Beds?
Yes – I have had a very positive experience using mine in combination with
Saatva’s Lineal adjustable base.

Replies

Jess RJ

I haven’t used the twin option. If you’re looking specifically for something that’s adaptable with an adjustable base, I always recommend foam or latex products without an innerspring unit to cause the mattress to stay stiff when you try to adjust. In the Saatva line, I’d go with Zenhaven. It’s made of latex and is very easy to use on adjustable bases.
