Because we write such lengthy reviews, here’s a quick glance at what’s inside this post. You can click the link to take you to whichever section you desire.
We understand that reading about mattresses can be a bit boring so we put together a short review video so you can see the bed up close for yourself.
Keep in mind, we can only fit so much detail into a single video. Keep reading to learn more about Loom & Leaf and who the mattress is best for.
In the past few years, there’s been a major influx of online bedding companies that ship their mattresses directly to your door rolled-up in a box. That’s where the term “bed-in-a-box” comes from.
Loom & Leaf is different that most online mattress companies in that they offer free white glove delivery. That means the mattress does not arrive compressed in a box. Instead, an actual person (or two) will deliver the mattress and set it up for you. You don’t even need to lift a finger. The delivery crew will even haul away your old mattress for free if you want. In certain states, the mattress removal, alone, can save you money.
Once the mattress is delivered, Loom & Leaf offers you a 120-day home trial period. Basically, the company is allowing you test the mattress in the comfort of your own home and decide whether you truly like it or not. While a trial period is standard, we do appreciate that Saatva has extended it from 100 nights to 120 nights. We think four months is more than ample time to decide whether you want Loom & Leaf.
If, for any reason during the trial window, you decide the Loom & Leaf bed is not for you, no problem, the return process is very simple. All you have to do is contact customer support and they’ll arrange for the bed to be picked up from your home. From there, just provide proof (pickup receipt) that the mattress has indeed been removed from your home and the company will issue you a refund. However, the company does charge a $99 return fee to cover their pickup costs.
Why aren’t returns completely free? Saatva just incurs more costs in the delivery process than most mattress companies do. Saatva doesn’t use FedEx or UPS, so there’s just more involved in the whole white glove delivery process. We’d love it if returns were free, but we don’t think $99 is crazy considering we’ve seen some companies charge upwards of $200 for returns even though they have a shorter trial period.
Additionally, the Loom & Leaf mattress is backed by a 15-year warranty. You can read more about what the warranty entails on the company’s website.
Just so you know, the industry standard for online beds is free shipping (usually in a box), a 100-night trial period, free returns, and a 10-year warranty. Loom & Leaf obviously goes above and beyond most of the standard policies.
As mentioned above, Saatva also offers two different mattress models in addition to Loom & Leaf.
The first is the Saatva mattress. This model incorporates dual layers of coils and has more of a traditional innerspring type feel. The Saatva mattress is a great choice for heavy folks or people that want a pillow top feel to their bed. The second is the Zenhaven mattress, which is a double-sided latex mattress. This mattress is obviously a great option for folks who like the feel of latex foam. It also happens to have the natural/organic bent to it since the latex foam is natural and the cover is made with organic cotton fibers.
In almost every mattress review, mattress comparison, and best list we publish, we try to discuss this subject because your weight plays a role in how you perceive a mattress to feel. The same mattress can feel quite different to different sized individuals.
In general, big body types (250+ lb) will feel like most mattresses are quite soft, whereas small body types (150 lb or less) will feel like most mattresses are quite firm.
Heavy folks exert more force onto the surface of a mattress and as a result tend to sink into the soft top layers more than petite and average size sleepers. We will reference all body types throughout this review, but it’s still important you keep your weight in mind as you progress down the page.
Loom & Leaf beds are priced above average for the online mattress industry. However, keep in mind, this isn’t your typical two or three layer poly foam bed-in-a-box. This is a premium bed comprised of high-quality foams and manufactured in the USA by a well-respected company. As such, we actually think Loom & Leaf beds are a solid value.
Nevertheless, here’s how pricing breaks down by size.
|King / Cal King||$1,799|
Unfortunately, Loom & Leaf isn’t too keen on offering coupon codes or promo codes. However, it’s still a good idea to keep an eye on current pricing on the company’s website. You never know when Loom & Leaf might offer a discount or bundle deal around a major holiday.

Before we jump into the juicy details about Loom & Leaf, it’s important to note that the mattress comes in two different comfort levels:
Hopefully that helped to clear things up in terms of how the two firmness levels compare. Ultimately, the best way to make your own mind up is to try the bed because your view on softness/firmness will depend on your particular body type.
The Loom & Leaf mattress is comprised entirely of foam. In total, the mattress uses five layers and comes in around 11-12″ thick.
To start the mattress uses a 5.5″ layer of dense poly foam. This layer serves as the foundation for the bed. Next is a 2″ transition loft pad. Don’t let the fancy term fool you, though. As the name implies, this foam layer just basically serves as a transition from the support foam below.
On top of the transition layer is a 2.5″ layer of five pound visco-elastic memory foam. This layer gives the bed deep pressure relief and contouring support. Finally, for the top layer, the bed uses a 2″ layer of four pound gel-swirl memory foam. This acts as the comfort layer for the mattress and gives the bed a soft, comfortable feel.
The top layer also includes a special gel panel that is designed to help with temperature regulation. We’ll discuss this in more detail below, but it’s basically a laminated sheet of cooling gel that sits just below the cover. It’s subtle and most people won’t notice it, but we think it plays a major role in keeping the bed at a cooler temperature throughout the night.
Wrapping the mattress is an organic cotton cover that is quilted with an additional 5/8″ of soft foam for added comfort. Overall, the cover is very soft, comfortable and gives the bed a premium look. The cover also happens to smell great—almost like you’re walking through a field.
Unlike a lot of online beds, the cover is non-removable. That means if you happen to spill something on the bed or it gets dirty, you’ll have to spot clean the cover with a mild detergent and water. To be fair, that’s how you care for most online beds (even if they have a removable cover) so at the end of the day, it’s really not a big deal.
Given the bed uses two layers of dense, premium memory foam you can probably guess what type of feel to expect. Still, we’ll spell it out anyway. The Loom & Leaf mattress has a softer, dense memory foam feel.
As you lay down on the bed, you slowly sink in a little and the top layers of memory foam start to conform to your body’s shape. Overall, we think this bed is very comfortable, but you obviously have to love the feel of memory foam.
If you’re not a big fan of memory foam, you may want to check out our reviews of Casper, GhostBed, and Leesa, all of which have more of a soft, neutral-foam feel. They are thinner and less luxurious than Loom & Leaf, but they are wildly popular.
Also, as you would expect with such soft, dense memory foam top layers, the Loom & Leaf mattress is not all that responsive. In other words, it takes the top layers a couple seconds to pop back to position after pressure is released. As such, you will experience a bit of resistance when you go to roll between sleeping positions.
All this means is that active sleepers who tend to toss and turn and move around a lot will find it requires a little extra effort to switch positions. If you’re open to memory foam, you’ll probably really like the feel of Loom & Leaf. We’ve also experienced that the memory foam beds cause us to be less inclined to want to switch sleeping positions. In other words, we almsot feel swaddled by the materials (in a good way).
In terms of firmness, it’s going to depend on which model you select. We think the Relaxed Firm version lands around a medium-firm on the firmness scale, while the Firm version lands closer to a proper firm.
All things considered, both options find a pretty nice balance between comfort and support. Plus, we like that Loom & Leaf offers consumers the flexibility to choose their firmness. As you will find out below, this means all types of sleepers will be able to find an option that best suits their particular sleeping habits.
Yes and no. We recommend primary side sleepers who are of average size go with the Relaxed Firm version. This model provides a decent amount of pressure relief for folks who spend a lot of time on their side. The top layers do a good job of cradling your hips and shoulders. It won’t offer as much pressure relief as a lot of pure side sleeper mattresses, but it will soften over time and we think it will work for a lot of people.
If you weigh over 250 lb and you primarily sleep on your side, the Luxury Firm is a really nice option. Remember, bigger folks sink into the top layers more than petite and average sized sleepers. As such, big folks may find the Firm version actually feels more like a medium on the firmness scale.
For you petite side sleepers out there, however, both of these models will probably be a little too firm for you. Side sleepers need ample pressure relief for their side, and this bed won’t probably provide it for those who weigh under 150 lbs or so. Instead, petite side sleepers should take a peek at our best list on the top plush beds.
Yes, but again your weight determines which model is best. We recommend petite and average sized sleepers go with the Relaxed Firm version, which provides more than enough support for smaller body types.
If you’re a large individual and you primarily sleep on your back or stomach, we recommend going with the Firm version for maximum support.
If you stay within the recommend parameters listed above, back and stomach sleepers will be just fine on Loom & Leaf. Yes, you’ll sink into the top layers a little (that’s normal), but never to point where your hips fall out of proper alignment. The bed does a good job of properly supporting your lower back and trunk.
Yes, but again keep your weight in mind. Petite and medium size individuals should go with the Relaxed Firm version. Heavier individuals will want to choose based on their dominant sleeping positions. For example, if you favor your side, you might first try out the Relaxed Firm version. However, if you sleep exclusively on your back or stomach, the Firm version is the way to go.
This is a tough one. On one hand, we’d say yes because it is thicker and more durable than most bed-in-a-box mattresses. However, we typically recommend heavy folks go with a spring or hybrid mattress. Generally speaking, coils are more supportive and durable than the dense poly foams that all-foam beds (like Loom & Leaf and many others) use for their main support structures.
If you weigh over 250 lb, you should check out our list of the Best Beds For Heavy People. Still, we have to admit, if you’re a larger individual and you’re dead set on an all-foam bed, Loom & Leaf is one of the best options out there.
This is another tough subject. The term “cool” gets thrown around a lot in the bedding industry. It seems like all companies these days like to say their mattresses sleep cool. However, in reality, external factors play a big role when it comes to temperature regulation. For example, factors like what climate you live in, how much you use your air conditioner and what type of sheets you use all affect how warm or cool you sleep throughout the night.
With that said, we do think the Loom & Leaf mattress will sleep on the cooler side of the spectrum, especially compared to other memory foam beds. We say that primarily because the bed uses a cooling gel spinal panel that is actually laminated onto the top layer.
This type of cooling gel is commonly found in hospital burn units to help treat fire victims. Further, Loom & Leaf placed this panel in the center third of the bed where heat is commonly retained. All in all, we think Loom & Leaf is one of the few memory foam beds out there that hot sleepers can get away with.
So long as you’re fine with everything you’ve already read about, these next few items are less important. In fact, edge support and motion isolation primarily apply to couples that have one partner whom is active in their sleep.
Let’s start with motion isolation, which refers to how well the bed absorbs movement (e.g. when your partner gets up three times in the middle of the night to use the restroom). Loom & Leaf deadens movement pretty darn well. The mattress passed our tests easily. We noticed very little cross-mattress motion that was transferred from one side of the bed to the other.
Again, motion isolation is truly only important for people who share a bed with an active sleeper. A bed, like Loom & Leaf, that deadens movement well will generally mean you’ll feel less of your partner’s movements, which can lead to a more restful night of sleep (i.e. you won’t constantly be jostled awake every time your partner moves).
Next, in terms of edge support, Loom & Leaf performs well, but it’s just not the best bed we’ve ever tested in this department. As you roll over towards the side, you’ll notice a little bit of compression and you won’t feel quite as supported as you do in the middle. Still, we don’t think edge support will be an issue for most sleepers. Ultimately, we give it a passing grade.
Edge support is an important topic for couples who share a smaller size mattress. The better edge support a bed provides, the more both partners will be to spread out and be comfortable while still feeling supported.
Overall, there’s a lot to like about Loom & Leaf. The bed has a high-quality construction, it’s comfortable and it comes in multiple comfort levels so all types of sleepers will be able to find an option that best suits them.
Yes, it’s a bit more expensive than the typical all-foam bed-in-a-box, but that’s not who Loom & Leaf is competing with. This bed is a cut above. You get Loom & Leaf if you want a premium, memory foam mattress.
Before we start this section off, you should know that we did an entire breakout post on this very subject. Here’s the link: Loom and Leaf vs Saatva vs Zenhaven.
Saatva — As we discussed above, Saatva is an innerspring mattress that comes in three firmness options (Plush Soft, Luxury Firm, and Firm). It’s more affordable than Loom & Leaf, but also has a totally different feel. It’s a more responsive, bouncy bed. The Plush Soft model is actually the best mattress that Saatva makes for side sleepers.
Zenhaven — This is a 10″ fully latex mattress. What’s interesting about this bed is that it has a different firmness level on top and on bottom. One side is about a medium-firm and the other is closer to a proper firm. Either way, Zenhaven is a nice solution for back and stomach sleepers that want a luxury—but also eco-friendly—mattress. Zenhaven actually made our list of the Best Natural & Organic Mattresses.
Loom & Leaf — We’ve covered an innerspring and latex mattress, so, logically, the next mattress that Saatva would offer would be made of memory foam, which is precisely what Loom & Leaf is.

What bed frames and foundations is the Loom & Leaf mattress compatible with?
|According to Saatva, the Loom & Leaf mattress will work with motorized adjustable frames in addition to other frames/foundations that are sturdy and have next to no give. Saatva sells their own Lineal Adjustable Base in addition to other frames that you might want to look into.|
Where is the Loom & Leaf mattress made?
|Loom & Leaf mattresses are manufactured in the United States. In fact, all the foams the mattress uses are also sourced within the United States.|
Is the Loom & Leaf bed 100% organic?
|No, but the foams the company uses are made with at least 30% soy or corn oil. Also, remember, the cover is made with organic cotton.|
Where can I test a Loom & Leaf mattress?
|Right now, Saatva only sells their beds online through company-owned websites. They do not sell through any retail outlets like Macy's or Mattress Firm. That said, we have to expect that they will in the near future be selling through brick and mortar retailers. Some of their competitors—namely Casper, Leesa, and Purple—sell through large retail chains. Still, the direct-to-consumer channel is what they focus on most.|
What other products does Saatva sell besides their three mattresses?
|They also have the Lineal Adjustable Base and two different mattress foundations (4.75" and 8.75"). They even have split options for those mattress foundations.|
