Sure, there’s a whole galaxy of mattresses that are more luxurious than Saatva’s, with higher coil counts and finer materials. But we find Saatva’s mattresses to be among the most elegant-looking and thoughtfully designed options available from an online company. Over the past two years, we’ve group-tested the innerspring Saatva Classic, the memory-foam Loom & Leaf, and the all-latex Zenhaven, and they’ve consistently earned a spot among our top picks in our guides to the best foam mattresses and the best innerspring mattresses. We’ve also slept on the Saatva Latex Hybrid, and we’ve researched the components and construction of the rest of the beds in Saatva’s lineup.
If you want the convenience of ordering a mattress online but prefer an innerspring, we think the Saatva Classic is one of the best options. It comes with a generous 180-day trial period, and it’s available in three firmness levels that should suit all sleep positions.

Most online mattresses are foams or hybrids, so the Saatva Classic stands out. It’s one of the few innerspring mattresses you can conveniently buy online. Pocketed coils give the Saatva Classic a good amount of bounce near the top, and a plush top adds softness. Also, as with all of the Saatva Company’s mattresses, the Saatva Classic is delivered by movers, rather than in a box. Saatva also offers a generous 180-day trial period and easy returns.
With a thick, quilted top and some of the highest foam densities we’ve seen in an online mattress, the Loom & Leaf feels more substantial (and will likely last longer) than all-foam mattresses under $1,000. Its two firmness levels should also work for most sleep positions.
*At the time of publishing, the price was $1,800.
The all-foam Loom & Leaf is made with denser memory foam than most under-$1,000 mattresses, so it’s less likely to sag over time. For that reason, it’s better for people who weigh more than 200 pounds. The thick, quilted cover is cushier and more substantial than the sock-like covers on most foam mattresses, and that cover makes the memory-foam layer underneath feel less squishy. As you’d expect with a memory-foam bed, the Loom & Leaf limits motion better than the innerspring Saatva Classic.
The all-latex Zenhaven is $1,000 more than similar online options, but it should prove more durable and breathable—and thus feel cooler—than many foam mattresses. Good latex mattresses are expensive, but we think this one provides solid value.
*At the time of publishing, the price was $2,200.
The all-foam Zenhaven consists mostly of latex—specifically Talalay latex, which is made from the rubber tree plant’s milky sap and is intrinsically durable. Talalay is less stiff than Dunlop latex, which is typically found in the less expensive latex mattresses we’ve tried. The Zenhaven is also flippable (the Luxury Plush side feels medium-firm, while the Gentle Firm side feels a bit firmer), which might prove helpful if you’re not sure what you prefer or if your needs change over time. This is not a conventionally cushy mattress, but it offers a supple cushion, good edge support, and a subtle springiness. Given its innate durability, the Zenhaven should work well for people who weigh more than 200 pounds.
