Our Verdict: Loom & Leaf comes in two versions, relaxed-firm, and firm depending on your preferences. It sleeps cooler than most memory foam beds, but if you sleep very hot the Loom & Leaf may not be cool enough for you. It combines the traditional memory foam feeling, pressure relief, built-in edge support and contouring for all sleepers.
Loom & Leaf bills itself as a company providing luxury retail, premium quality mattresses at a convenient, online direct-to-consumer price. Born in 2015, while drafting off of the success of another popular premium mattress—the Saatva Classic, the people behind Saatva wanted to bring the same high quality at a good price with a memory foam mattress. Loom & Leaf was born.
They took aim at Tempur-Pedic, the “king” of memory foam since the 1990s, and took aim with a mattress with similar characteristics and materials that still costs 70 percent less. Loom & Leaf says they did it by eliminating the markup of retail outlets. However, they didn’t eliminate details or innovation. The foams are dense and cool due to cooling gels or construction that encourages airflow. Or they’re luxurious and multi-layered to provide support and contouring to relieve pressure.
Loom & Leaf also took the extra step to make the new mattress in two levels of firmness: relaxed firm and firm. Premium luxury at a significantly lower price. That, in and of itself, is an innovation. In this review, we will talk all about that innovation, highlights of the mattress, and who the Loom & Leaf is best for. Let’s take a closer look.
May Not be Best For…
|✅Back, Side, Stomach and Combo Sleepers
✅Shoppers wanting to invest in a long-term mattress
❌Sleepers who do not like memory foam
❌People who want a lot of bounce in their mattress
❌Very hot sleepers
The Loom & Leaf is a memory foam mattress infused with cooling gel. It’s available in two firmness levels; a relaxed firm or firm.
Every layer of the Loom & Leaf includes some material or construction elements that should dissipate heat to keep the mattress cool. There’s the cooling gel in the top layer, the convoluted structure of one of the support layers, and cooling gel laminated right at the lumbar region of the back.
People with this mattress should not have to worry about overheating. But there was still some warmth to contend with during tests done on this part of the mattress. The Loom & Leaf will heat up some, though not nearly as much as traditional memory foam.
Loom & Leaf comes in two firmness levels. The relaxed firm will appeal to most customers—those who like sleeping on their side, back or stomach and those who normally toss and turn. The firm will appeal to those seeking a firmer option, like back and stomach sleepers or anyone whose doctor told them to get a firmer mattress.
Any mattress needs to have enough support to keep you from saving into the mattress without being so hard that it throws your spine out of alignment. L&L did a good job of keeping the spine in a straight line.
Loom & Leaf isn’t outstanding when it comes to edge support. When I laid near the edge or sat on the edges to get in and out of bed they depressed a lot. Ironically, for a luxury foam mattress, the Loom & Leaf registers a lot of movement. This lack of motion isolation could pose a problem if you sleep with a partner and have different work schedules. You may wake someone up or get worked up because you can feel quite a bit when the other side gets jostled. If you sleep with a partner who tends to move around a lot, this may not be the best option.
|✅Supports back of most sleepers
✅Provides phenomenal spine alignment, promoting a healthy posture
|✅Firmer option can provide adequate support, but heavyweight sleepers may still experience sinking w/ this option
❌Most sleepers will experience some sinking in the hips
|✅Relives pressure on Hips & Shoulders
❌Very lightweight sleepers will find this bed too firm
|✅Excellent responsiveness helps you shift positions
❌Lacks motion isolation; not great for couples
Back Sleepers: I felt supported on my back on both firmness levels of the Loom & Leaf. Which one you choose would really just depend on your personal preference. If you are a heavier sleeper, you will probably want the added firmness in the Firm model. See all of our top picks for Best Mattresses for Back Sleepers.
Stomach Sleepers: When I laid down on my stomach on the relaxed firm version, I felt my hips sinking a little bit. So I would recommend to strict stomach sleepers to get the firm version. If you are a heavier person you may still experience some sinking. See: Best Mattresses for Stomach Sleepers
Side Sleepers: The Loom & Leaf is a good option for side sleepers. Good, not great. If you are very lightweight it isn’t a great choice. For those who are average weight, we recommend the relaxed firm option. For heavier side sleepers, the Firm version will be best. See more options in our Best Mattresses for Side Sleepers guide.
Combination Sleepers: As always with combo sleepers, think about what position you spend most of the night in and read up on how the Loom & Leaf suits that position. I found this mattress was relatively easy to move around on, but would not want to be sleeping next to someone who was moving around a lot. See: Best Mattress for Combination Sleepers
Both firmness options of the Loom & Leaf are similarly constructed.
First layer: Breathable, organic cotton cover treated with a natural thistle flame retardant. It’s quilted with a 5/8’ slab of memory foam. This will keep you cool and safe.
Second comfort layer: 2-inch foam layer with a proprietary Cooling Spinal Gel injected into it. The foam itself uses a convoluted design and an inverted design for air flow along with the cooling gel for three times the cooling. The gel is laminated right at the lower back area of the mattress so there is a cooling zone embedded straight into the mattress.
Third layer: 2.5-inch single piece of substantial 5-pound density, visco-elastic memory foam that contours to your body shape. It’s also naturally cool.
Fourth layer: 2-inch loft pad sandwiched the support base and the memory to support what those layers do and act as a transition between them.
Fifth layer: 5.5-inch support base. It is high-density foam and supports all the layers above it.

The Loom & Leaf mattress represents an ambitious attempt to sell a premium mattress in a new-fangled and cheaper way. The memory foam unit loads up on the details then sheds the retail markup to make luxury affordable. Online direct-to-consumer mattress companies have the advantage of being able to adapt quickly. In this case, Loom & Leaf went ahead and built two versions of —relaxed firm and firm mattress— to meet a wider range of firmness preferences.
What those customers actually get from the Loom & Leaf are multiple layers of cooling effects and multiple layers and densities of foam to provide both support and contouring to the body. Overall, the Loom & Leaf feels like a traditional memory foam mattress that lets you sink into the mattress without swallowing you and still cuddling the contours of your body so you’re not sore from pressure points on hips and shoulders.
The mattress won’t retain heat like older models of memory foam mattresses because there are gel layers and a convoluted layer that allows air to flow through and take away hot spots. Some customer concerns early on have been with sagging in the middle of the mattress. Loom & Leaf have built-in support around the edges so it wouldn’t be a surprise if the tradeoff is some sagging in the middle.
