Saatva Latex Hybrid Mattress Firmness and Feel

Saatva Latex Hybrid Mattress Firmness

At Mattress Nerd, we like to rate firmness on a scale of 1–10, where a 1 is softer than air and a 10 is firmer than sleeping on bricks. With this in mind, the Saatva Latex Hybrid clocks with a firmness of 7.5. This medium-firm feel can work for sleepers of all sizes; however, side sleepers and lightweight back sleepers may need to dial back the firmness.

What Does the Saatva Latex Hybrid Feel Like? 

The feel of the Saatva Latex Hybrid is one of floating on top of the mattress with a slight pressure-relieving cradle at the hips and shoulders. The bed’s firmness level provides plenty of support for back sleepers and stomach sleepers. However, it may feel a bit too firm for strict side sleepers to remain in a comfortable position. 

What Sleeping Position Is Saatva Latex Hybrid Mattress Best For?

Body Type:Back SleepersStomach SleepersSide Sleepers
Lightweight< 130 lbs:342
Average weight130 – 230 lbs:553
Heavyweight> 230 lbs:533

1 = Very poor     2 = Not good     3 = Fair     4 = Good     5 = Excellent

Back Sleepers

The best mattresses for back sleepers work by supporting the lower back and maintaining the natural “S” curve of the spine. With the Saatva Latex Hybrid, average-weight and heavyweight sleepers should get plenty of back support on this firmer mattress. However, if you’re a lightweight back sleeper under 130 lbs, you may need more softness.

Stomach Sleepers

Stomach sleepers need a firm mattress that will keep their hips from sinking down and their spine aligned too. If you’re an average-weight stomach sleeper, then the Saatva Latex Hybrid’s firmness levels will work best for you. However, heavyweight sleepers may want a little more support, and lightweight back sleepers will still need more softness.

Side Sleepers

The best mattresses for side sleepers are usually softer and relieve pressure on the shoulders and hips. With that, the Saatva Latex Hybrid’s firmer feel will work better for heavyweight sleepers, while average-weight and lightweight sleepers won’t get enough cushion to “sink” down enough into the mattress.

Combination Sleepers

Combination sleepers are harder to pin down since they change their sleep positions throughout the night. That said, this latex Saatva’s responsiveness and bounciness is great for combination sleepers of all weights. Specifically, however, heavyweight and average-weight combination sleepers will feel most comfortable, while lightweight sleepers may need more softness to get comfortable.

Saatva Latex Hybrid Mattress Performance

Is the Saatva Latex Hybrid Mattress Cooling? 

Hot sleepers will likely love the many cooling qualities of the Saatva Latex Hybrid, including the naturally cool latex and the breathability of the innerspring coils, organic cotton, and New Zealand wool.  While the cover is very breathable, it does not feel cool to the touch. Still, this latex hybrid will not trap heat like a traditional memory foam bed, and we would definitely score it among the best cooling mattresses

Edge Support 

One way to measure support is the sturdiness of the edges in a mattress, which can be especially important for seniors. Thanks to the solid structure of both innerspring coils and Talalay latex, the edges of the Saatva Latex Hybrid are sturdy enough to lie on comfortably. So, we gave this bed a perfect 10 for lying down edge support. And, coming in right behind, we also gave this bed a 9 for sitting edge support.

Responsiveness

Latex hybrid mattresses are generally known for being responsive, and the same is true of the Saatva Latex Hybrid. This bed’s organic Talalay latex comfort layer and pocketed coils offer plenty of bounce and responsiveness for combination sleepers and couples alike.

Motion Isolation: Is it good for those who share a bed?

Motion transfer is how well your bed absorbs unwanted movement. For the Saatva Latex Hybrid’s motion transfer, we answered your two most important questions: can you drink wine in bed? And, can you sleep well with a partner?

First off, for the wine test, we gave this mattress an 8.5. Although hybrid beds are known for being more responsive than motion-absorbing, this Saatva’s pocketed coils make it safe to enjoy a glass in bed. Next, for the partner test, we gave the Saatva a 9. Again, the Latex Hybrid doesn’t have perfect motion isolation, but even light sleepers shouldn’t have any issues with sharing this mattress.

Noise

Mattresses with coil or spring support layers can sometimes have unwanted creaking. However, the Saatva Latex Hybrid is virtually silent, even when you move around on it.

Pain Relief

The best mattresses for back pain support proper spinal alignment depending on your body weight and sleeping position. When lying on your side, you need sufficient cushioning so the shoulders and hips can sink into the mattress. For stomach sleepers, extra support is a must in order to keep the hips from sinking in too far. Back sleepers need a combination of cushion and support. 

The Saatva Latex Hybrid is a firm mattress with minimal cushion along the top layer. Zoned Support provides great spinal alignment for heavier folks and stomach sleepers. The multiple pressure zones also make this mattress excellent for most back sleepers. If you spend most of your time on your side or if you weigh less than 130 lbs, the surface may be too firm for healthy spine alignment.

Sex

The Saatva Latex Hybrid is a great mattress for sex. The materials are naturally buoyant, springy, and temperature neutral. Also, the mattress stays quiet when you move around on its surface.

Off-Gassing

We didn’t notice any off-gassing coming from our Saatva Latex Hybrid. If you detect a “new mattress smell,” it’s non-toxic and should be gone within 24 hours in a well-ventilated room.

Durability 

The Saatva Latex Hybrid is far more durable and supportive than your average mattress. Talalay latex and steel coils, both used in this mattress, are two of the longest-lasting mattress materials. They also provide the kind of pressure relief and springy support that make the Latex Hybrid excellent for heavier people. We believe this mattress should last well over 10 years. 

What Is the Saatva Latex Hybrid Made Of?

The Saatva Latex Hybrid’s organic hybrid construction features high-quality, breathable wool and latex, along with supportive and firm pocketed steel coil support. Also, each comfort and cover layer of the Latex Hybrid is hypoallergenic and antimicrobial.

_wp_attachment_image_alt

Layer #1: Euro Top Mattress Cover: The top layer of the Saatva Latex Hybrid is made of hand-tufted Euro top and hypoallergenic cotton. Although this layer doesn’t feel cool to the touch right away, it’s designed to feel breathable and cool all night long. Additionally, this cotton layer is antimicrobial, which promotes healthier sleep.

Layer #2: Organic Wool Comfort Layer: Below the mattress cover is a thinner wool comfort layer that adds more organic breathability to the Saatva Latex Hybrid, naturally wicks away moisture, and has an antimicrobial and hypoallergenic treatment as well.

Layer #3: Talalay Latex Comfort Layer: Moving on, below is three inches of supportive and breathable Talalay latex, which is more cooling than standard Dunlop latex. Also, this layer of latex is designed to provide excellent pressure-point relief and is hypoallergenic too.

Layer #4: Pocketed Coil Support Layer: Next, getting into the support layers, the Saatva Latex Hybrid is supported by individually wrapped steel coils that give the mattress its responsive, firm, and lifted feel. And, although coils tend to feel bouncy, their individual wrapping reduces motion transfer.

Layer #5: Organic Base: Lastly, the bottom layer of the Saatva Latex Hybrid is an eco loft pad made from organic cotton and GOTS-certified wool. This base layer stabilizes and improves the durability of the mattress above while also making it feel more firm too.

How Do the Policies Measure Up?

Trial and Returns

Saatva offers a generous 365-night sleep trial. During this lengthy sleep trial, if you decide the bed is just not right for you, the company will come to your door and pick it up. After it’s been picked up, expect a full refund minus a $99 transportation fee. Also, Saatva donates returned mattresses to veterans’ shelters or offers them to employees.

For more information, check out the Saatva return policy breakdown.

Warranty

The Saatva Latex Hybrid comes with a Lifetime warranty. For the first two years of the warranty, Saatva will replace the mattress with a new one at no charge to you if the mattress is deemed defective. In the following years, the company will repair and re-cover your mattress. The only charge will be transportation costs of $99 each way.

Shipping

Saatva differentiates itself from other online mattress companies by delivering the new mattress to you with free white glove delivery. Customers choose a date and time to have delivery professionals hand-deliver the bed and set it up. They also provide old mattress removal. Note that white glove delivery is only offered in the contiguous U.S. 

Addressing Saatva Latex Hybrid Mattress Complaints

Too Firm

Some Saatva Latex Hybrid buyers complained that the mattress felt too firm, especially for side sleepers and lightweight sleepers. In our own tests in the Nerd Lab, we also found that this bed could place too much pressure on the shoulders and hips of many sleepers, and we also found that lighter sleepers may have trouble sinking down into this Saatva bed.

Not Responsive Enough

A couple of Saatva Latex Hybrid owners complained that the mattress felt too “sinking” and sagged too much, making it difficult to change sleeping positions and move around on the bed. However, we found that this Saatva mattress’s firm, latex construction offers top of the line responsiveness. Also, since this bed is durable too, you shouldn’t have issues with sagging.

These two mattresses vary greatly in both their construction and their feel. The Latex Hybrid is made with a 3” latex comfort layer and innerspring coils at the base, whereas the Saatva Classic is mostly coils (a dual coil system), topped with a 3” euro pillow top. Thus, the Latex Hybrid feels more bouncy while the Classic has an innerspring mattress feel with some cushioning on the top.

Another big difference is firmness. While the Latex Hybrid comes in one firmness, the Classic comes in three firmness options. The Plush Soft and Luxury Firm Saatva Classic are both much softer than the Latex Hybrid, while the Firm Classic is slightly firmer than the Latex Hybrid. These differences make the Classic better for lightweight people and side sleepers.

The Zenhaven and Latex Hybrid are both all-natural luxury mattresses with Talalay latex, organic cotton, and New Zealand wool. As such, they’re both excellent for eco-conscious consumers and people with allergies. There are two big differences in their construction. First, only the Latex Hybrid has a layer of innerspring coils. Second, the Zenhaven is a flippable mattress with two firmness levels, while the Latex Hybrid is a one- mattress. 

The Zenhaven has a Luxury Plush (medium-soft) and Gentle Firm (medium-firm) side, both of which are softer than the Latex Hybrid. The softer feel makes the Zenhaven better for side sleepers and lightweight people. The added coil layer in the Latex Hybrid makes it better for most heavy folks, hot sleepers, and those who enjoy the innerspring bounce.

The Saatva HD is the only Saatva mattress designed specifically for heavyweight sleepers. Both the Latex Hybrid and HD have a layer of zoned latex and innerspring coils, bringing a supportive, responsive, and cool feel. Both have a similar firmness, although the HD is a bit softer than the Latex Hybrid. 

One of the biggest differences between these beds is that the Saatva HD contains layers of durable polyfoam and memory foam. These materials add pressure relief and contouring for bigger bodies, which makes the bed a better fit for heavier side sleepers. However, the HD’s surface doesn’t have the easy softness of the Latex Hybrid’s cotton and wool pillow top.

Both the Saatva Latex Hybrid and the Avocado Green mattresses are environmentally friendly and non-toxic. They also have similar constructions that combine organic cotton covers, all-natural latex, and recycled innerspring coils. However, the Saatva uses Talalay latex while the Avocado uses Dunlop latex. Dunlop latex is not quite as soft, buoyant, or durable as Talalay, but it tends to be less expensive.

As for firmness, the Saatva Latex Hybrid comes in at a 7.5/10, and the Avocado is a smidge less firm at a 7/10. But the real difference comes in the Avocado offering a plush pillowtop version, which can better accommodate side sleepers who require more cushioning at their hips and shoulders. The Avocado has a lower price point than the Saatva Latex Hybrid.

The Birch mattress is Helix Sleep’s eco-friendly offering in the hybrid category. Just like the Saatva Latex Hybrid, it incorporates wool, organic cotton, all-natural Talalay latex, and pocketed coils in its construction. However, we rank it as a 6.5/10 on our firmness scale, so it’s a bit softer than the Saatva Latex Hybrid.

Still, the Birch mattress is good for the same types of folks: the eco-conscious, those who like a responsive feel and sleep hot, as well as back, stomach, and combination sleepers. For side sleepers in need of added pressure relief at the shoulders and hips, the Birch also comes with the optional plush mattress topper, and this addition makes it a bit better for side sleepers than the Saatva Latex Hybrid.

The Saatva Latex Hybrid and the DreamCloud are both hybrid mattresses with similar performance and Lifetime warranties; however, the DreamCloud is more affordable. Additionally, if you’re a heavyweight sleeper, you’ll likely feel more comfortable on the Saatva Latex Hybrid mattress’s more firm construction, while lightweight sleepers will prefer the more pressure-relieving DreamCloud.

Lastly, for couples, the Saatva offers better temperature control and cooling, while the DreamCloud has better motion isolation. That said, both mattresses have similar levels of responsiveness as well.

Saatva Latex Hybrid FAQ’s

Are Latex Mattresses Good?

For the right kind of sleeper, absolutely. This kind of mattress is supportive, so it does a great job of keeping your spine aligned when on your back or stomach. Latex and coils are also naturally cooling, making latex hybrid mattresses reliable choices for hot sleepers.

Is the Saatva Latex Hybrid Worth the Money?

Since Saatva makes luxury mattresses, they cost a little more than your average bed in a box. However, compared to other luxury name brands, Saatva is relatively affordable. Especially considering that the company sources some of the highest-quality and organic materials that are available on the market.

Should You Rotate Saatva Mattresses?

The Saatva Latex Hybrid mattress is not designed to be flipped over, but Saatva does recommend you rotate your bed periodically. Specifically, they recommend once during the first six months you own the mattress and then once a year thereafter. This helps maintain your Saatva’s durability and comfortability for longer.

The Nerd’s Take: What’s the Bottom Line?

The Saatva Latex Hybrid is a medium-firm organic, hybrid mattress that’s great for back sleepers and average-weight to heavyweight sleepers too. This mattress features solid edge support and responsiveness, along with a cool and breathable feel. That said, some lightweight sleepers may find this bed too rigid.
