Before we get into the full breakdown of this comparison, here’s a quick overview of the major points of differentiation.
Those are just the quick highlights though. Keep reading to learn more about each mattress and how they compare.
YogaBed is owned by Marpac, a sleep company that was founded way back in 1962. Marpac is more so known for their white noise machines but in 2018, they made the move to acquire YogaBed in order to expand their product offerings. You didn’t come here for a history lesson though, let’s get into why YogaBed might be the right bed for you.
Yogabed is an all-foam mattress with a four-layer construction. From bottom to top, it has a 2″ layer of dense support foam, followed by a 5″ layer of a slightly less dense support foam. Next is a 2” layer of YogaGel Memory Foam, and on top is a 1″ layer of Instant Response YogaFoam. Altogether, you get a 10” thick mattress, which is a standard size for an all-foam bed-in-a-box.
The overall feel of Yogabed is more reflective of the top layer than of the memory foam, which is why you end up with a rather neutralized memory foam feel. It’s far more responsive than your stereotypical memory foam mattress, so you don’t end up feeling stuck in the bed when you try to turn over or get up.
We’d put Yogabed at a medium to medium-firm on our firmness scale, so it lands right in the sweet spot. Of course, that depends on your weight and preferences, but we find that most people are comfortable on this mattress. Very petite sleepers may find that it’s more of a true medium-firm and it certainly isn’t for folks that like a decidedly firm sleep surface, but for many people, Yogabed is quite nice.
Overall, because Yogabed will work for all sleeper types (as long as the sleeper is under 250 lb) and has a fairly neutral, comfy feel, we consider it a pretty safe pick. As a heads up, though, it will start firmer, but will soften as you sleep on it.
One of the most convenient perks you get with Yogabed is its removable and machine washable cover. This may not sound like a super exciting detail, but for allergy sufferers, anyone with pre-potty trained kids or pets, and women in general, an easy-to-wash mattress cover can be a deciding factor.
While many beds have removable covers, very few can actually be tossed in the washer. Spot cleaning will work if you have no other option, but putting a soiled cover through a wash cycle is way easier and provides a more thorough cleaning, which is why we always give bonus points to mattresses with washable covers.
If you’re deciding between two products, you’re of course going to want to look at how the numbers compare before choosing which one to purchase. In the case of this comparison, YogaBed is more affordable than Loom and Leaf.
YogaBed also seems to be more aggressive than Loom & Leaf when it comes to sales, deals and discounts. You can check YogaBed’s website or the table at the top of this article to see what kind promotion they’re currently offering. Chances are you’ll be able to save $300-400.

Loom & Leaf comes to us from the folks at Saatva, a luxury online mattress company with a reputation for manufacturing high-quality bedding products. You didn’t come here to learn about Saatva though. Let’s get into why Loom & Leaf might the be right mattress for you and your partner.
Loom & Leaf is an all-foam mattress with four main layers. From bottom to top, it starts with a dual layer foundation that includes a 5.5″ layer of dense poly foam and a 2″ transition loft pad, which isn’t nearly as fancy as it sounds. It simply serves as a transitional material from the firm base layer below to the comfort layers above. Next is two separate layers of memory foam, and on top of that is a quilted, organic cotton Euro top with incorporated cushion for extra comfiness. Altogether, the bed is about 11-12”, which is a bit thicker than the average all-foam mattress.
The feel of Loom & Leaf is closer to that stereotypical memory foam feel than that of Yogabed. It’s a softer, but dense feel and you do sink into the top layers a bit when you get settled in for the night. As such, this bed is definitely for memory foam lovers. You’ll get plenty of support from the denser base layer of the mattress, as well as nice pressure relief from the contouring and cushion of the top layers.
The firmness of the Loom & Leaf mattress depends on which comfort level you order. The bed is offered in a Relaxed Firm and a Firm model. On our scale, the Relaxed Firm lands around a medium-firm and the Firm is right there at a true firm.
We’d suggest heavier folks (250+ lb) go for the Firm model, while petite and average sized folks go for the Relaxed Firm. In general, we typically point heavy people towards beds that contain coils for added support, however, we do think Loom & Leaf is one of the few all-foam beds that would work for large folks given its thickness, high-quality construction and firmness profile.
If you aren’t a hot sleeper, the temperature regulation of your mattress may not be a major concern to you, but if you are a hot sleeper, you’ve certainly thought about it.
While we wouldn’t call Yogabed a hot-sleeping mattress (it’s temperature neutral), we will note that Loom & Leaf takes a step to counteract memory foam’s heat-trapping tendency with the addition of a cooling gel strip in the center third of their mattress. It’s a material similar to what you’ll find used in burn units to help cool things down. And we do think it works; we found that Loom & Leaf is a cooler-sleeping bed than many other memory foam mattresses. Loom & Leaf has even more info on their website about the cooling strip.
All in all, there’s a lot to like about both of these mattresses. In our eyes, deciding between the two beds comes down to overall feel, your body type, how hot you sleep, whether or not you care about a washable cover, and what sort of budget you have. With that said, here’s what bed we’d recommend based on each deciding factor.
That’s all we have for you right now. Check below to see how these two beds compare to other popular mattresses on the market.
