Sleep plays an important role in human health, and is right next to proper nutrition and regular exercise when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Many factors determine the quality of our sleep, mattresses being one of the important ones. From a strictly mathematical perspective, it would be wise to invest in a good mattress, since we do spend approximately 1/3 of our lives sleeping. This article discusses some of the best mattresses and the highlights of each.
The Saatva company is eight years old and is one of the largest online mattress retailers in the world. The covers of their mattresses are 100% cotton, so that each mattress can breathe and remain soft. Each cover is filled with foam (European-style pillow), ensuring the mattress retains its softness long-term.
The foam layer is beneath the cover, providing extra stress relief. Saatva mattresses have an intricate design, which helps the air circulate and cool the mattress. The coil layer consists of individually wrapped coils. These coils support the sleeper and add a bounce to the mattress, helping the sleeper shift when adjusting their position. The following layers include the support layer (made of steel coils) and the base support (composed of dense poly foam). There is also an edge support system, which ensures that the Saatva mattress keeps its shape over time.
When it comes to softness, Saatva mattresses received 7/10 on the firmness test, being very soft on the initial touch, but getting firmer once the pressure is applied. This makes Saatva is a medium firm mattress. If interested, Saatva offers a 120-day sleep trial and offers free shipping and a 15-year warranty on their mattresses.
