Saatva HD Mattress Review
Saatva HD is one of the best mattresses for heavy and obese sleepers. There’s few mattresses that incorporate a steel coil innerspring unit, memory foam and latex foam. It’s a beast of a mattress designed to accommodate up to 500 lb sleepers.
The easiest words to describe Saatva HD are: supportive, durable, comfortable and luxurious. It’s basically the same story with Saatva Classic, but to the next level. Ignoring WinkBed, Big Fig and Beautyrest Black, we haven’t felt quality like this. In all honesty, Saatva HD is one of the nicest mattresses available today, anywhere—online or in-store. Here is our quick video review of the bed.
Pricing Of Saatva HD
It’s an expensive bed, no doubt. If you get it, we sincerely believe that you’ll also be impressed by the quality. For the queen size bed without a foundation, Saatva HD is a little under $2,700. Again, not cheap, but a darn good bed nonetheless.
Saatva HD Construction
Below we dissect Saatva Classic, but in this section, we’re going to take a peek inside Saatva HD. Contrary to what you’d expect, Saatva HD is different inside from the Classic mattress. For instance, it uses just one layer of coils. In fact, the bed uses a thick-gauge innerspring unit that provides support for the entire mattress. You can see the innersprings in the image below.
The coils are wrapped edge-to-edge in foam to provide increased edge support—it works. Then you have a transition foam layer which includes memory foam. More interestingly, however, the bed has a five-zone Talalay latex foam layer. Latex is a durable and responsive foam, which helps to give Saatva HD its overall supportive feel.
On top, Saatva HD has a familiar—yet different—organic cotton cover. It has a little foam quilted inside, and it just oozes luxury. All in all, Saatva HD is one heck of a bed.
Saatva HD Comfort And Feel
Saatva HD feels like a crazy supportive pillow top mattress. It has this airy quality to it that is balanced out by the bi-directional support from the coils. We rate Saatva HD as a medium-firm on our scale, which means for heavy people it will feel more like a medium. As such, we can confidently say that this is a solid mattress for all sleeping styles.
What Makes The Saatva Mattress Special?
Shopping for a new mattress online can be difficult. There are so many brands out there that all the mattresses can start to blend together over time. To clear things up for you, here are the major standout features of the Saatva mattress:
- High-quality, durable construction: The Saatva mattress is one of the few online beds that utilize both an innerspring unit and pocketed coils. As such, this bed can properly support all body types and will most likely last a long, long time.
- Value: The Saatva mattress is an excellent value in our opinion. If you were to walk into your local mattress store and ask for a bed with dual layers of coils, a Euro pillow top and an organic cotton cover, the salesman would likely show you beds that cost $2,000 minimum.
- Firmness options: We like that the bed comes in three different firmness profiles. This means every type of sleeper will be able to find a model that fits their particular sleeping habits.
- Saatva HD: Based on design and support alone, Saatva HD is differentiated. If you weigh over 300 lbs, it should absolutely be on your short list of beds to try.
Those are three big selling points in our book. If you want more information about how Saatva compares to other brands, check out our Saatva vs. Avocado Mattress comparison.
Saatva HD Mattress Review Verdict
Name something bad about this mattress. The price isn’t our favorite, but beyond that, it’s hands-down one of the best beds that money can buy. Having said that, unless you’re over 300 lbs, you should get the Classic mattress because it’s cheaper and just as nice.
