Saatva is one of the best mattresses in a box for those looking for a traditional innerspring mattress feel. Rather than focus on lots of blowout sales and other gimmicks, Saatva decided to invest in better coil technology to provide sleepers with a better traditional mattress, but shipped in a box to pass on the savings to customers. By encasing their upper coils in foam, they have a 'best of both worlds' feel that makes them one of the most interesting brands available.
Tuft and Needle made a big splash in the mattress industry when it offered one of the lowest cost all-foam mattresses in a box directly to customers. As one of the earliest players in the mattress-in-a-box space, they've done a good job branding themselves as a low priced alternative. However, recently they have launched their new Mint® mattress that is higher end and promises to be more comfortable. Does it stack up?
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Saatva in this match up!

These mattresses are given high ratings from customers, which means when we analyzed current review data from across the net, these mattresses ranked well. This is a solid starting point to discovering if this mattress will work for you -- read on for more information on specifics.
These mattresses offer good support. Reviewers describe their hips and shoulders being cradled and their spine being aligned.
These mattresses also know a thing or two about edge support, which is the evenness of support along the sides. For those that want to sit on the side of the mattress to put on socks or slippers, these mattresses should do a fine job keeping things comfortable.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
A bowling ball can be used as a good indicator of firmness, and it is can help in seeing how the firmness changes throughout the mattress. In this way, it can show if there is even support or if some areas sag. Based on this, these mattresses do well in their supportive eveness.
One of the most important items for shoppers buying a new mattress is durability. Being able to get up to a decade of use out of a mattress and still be comfortable is a good mark of durability. That said, there are other things that affect durability -- like material quality and sleeper size. These mattresses impress reviewers with their durability. That said, some with heavier bodies may experience a slight decrease in durability.

Customer reviews can be difficult to get at and even harder to understand -- especially with some companies focusing heavily on protecting their reputation. These mattresses, sadly, aren't rated as well by sleepers. There are still sleepers who are perfectly cozy with these products, but others that are not as much. Research more below to learn about the specifics of the mattresses.
Customers have mixed feelings about the lasting support of these mattresses. Though some enjoy the quality of these mattresses, if you have a wide frame or shoulders, make sure that your choice fits with your body before buying.
For those that need longevity in their edge support., some reviewers report that these mattresses may not have the kind of edge support over the long term that you may need.
Every mattress buyer is looking for a mattress that will continue to sleep comfortably after a decade. Though there might be some factors, like our bodies, that would mean that we would still want to a new mattress after 15 years, we would all be happier if we knew our mattress would really last. These mattresses are competitive when it comes to durability. Most sleepers should feel confident that their mattresses should last over 7 years -- with only a few folks complaining about feel. If you are a heavy person and worried about durability, take a look at some of the customer reviews before puchasing.
When I left a 35 year career as Creative Director for a major Advertising Agency my timing was perfect - the economy collapsed. I took a job with a major mattress chain creating campaigns to promote certain models.
During this period I visited a number of mattress manufacturers and was amazed that the same mattress meant to sell at a retail point of let's say $2,000 would by a simple change of the name and damask become a mattress set for an optimum price point of $800. This is why it's impossible for the consumer to comparison shop. If you find a mattress you like called "The Cloud" the store you're in is the only store that carries that mattress with that name.
Right down the street that very same mattress may be selling for as much as 50% more or less - the selling of mattresses is unfortunately a shady business and the consumer suffers from it.
I'll caveat the following by saying I am a research fanatic. It's in my blood and it drives most friends and family crazy - I am unrelenting and I go over board. That said when my better half and I realized that neither of us were getting a decent nights sleep, with the exception for our two Old English Bulldogs who could doze off on a bed of nails. I was handed my orders to find a mattress and the search began.
During a web search I found the Saatva site and book marked it along with the dozen others I had saved. When I finally read through the web site I was struck by two thing:.
1) The site is brimming with valuable information. There is virtually no what we call in advertising "fluff" or "weasel words" it's the best education about mattresses you'll find.
2) Claims by Saatva are backed up with facts. spec by spec, apples to apples. In fact there is a comparison chart between the Saatva mattress and other high end mattresses. As an example one comparison of the Saatva at $899 shows that the Saatva actually surpasses an equivalent Kings Down Mattress which has an MSRP of over three grand.
I drove them crazy with endless telephone calls and I'm surprised the company didn't take out a restraining order against me. What I found time and time again is that each person I spoke with knew the product inside and out. If I had questions about the coil system, the foam densities, the gauge of the springs they were answered. The few times there was a question that couldn't be answered ( because no normal person would ask these questions) but that's not me. I would be transferred to someone who could.
Never once was I pressured to buy. There is no "one time deal if you buy today" Pressure what so ever. Saatva means "Truth" and that's exactly what you get.
Now about the mattress!
We purchased the King Size Luxury Firm it was delivered with lightning speed and the plastic wrapping is beyond protective - it's closer to a Hazmat suit. When the mattress was placed in our bed frame - my spouse and I were both struck by how absolutely gorgeous it is. Quality touches abound. From the iron clad strong handles, to the intricate braiding on the sides. The deep tufted upholstered buttons make for an elegant and incredibly comfortable surface.
The Damask is pure 100% natural cotton both gorgeous in look and feel and the Damask ensures the mattress breathes. As far as support and comfort the Saatva mattress is brilliant. We haven't slept this well, this deeply and woken feeling this good in years, and that's a fact.
If you're still reading this novel and aren't comatose by this time, I applaud you. I promise to wrap this up in a minimum of 300 more pages.
The common thread between everyone at Saatva is passion.
Saatva promises silver but delivers gold and few mattress sellers, if any can make that claim. There is no single piece of furniture in the world that has such a profound effect on our health and well being. Our Saatva is the best investment we have made in years - and it's Bulldog Approved!
We've had our king size Saatva Luxury Firm for about 4 months now. We wanted a memory foam mattress because they're so comfortable to sleep on, but hubby is a big tall husky Texan and he sleeps really REALLY hot (as in no covers, not even a sheet, even when I would have a small heating blanket turned on). We tried 3 different memory foam mattresses and without fail, within the first year there would be a big uncomfortable depression on his side.Once we even flipped the mattress upside down (memory foam on the bottom), but it made no difference. So we finally decided to try something completely different. Reviews for the Saatva were outstanding (both the mattress as well as their customer service) so we took the plunge and ordered our latest new mattress. (we've been married about 13 years, and this will be our FIFTH mattress... maybe even sixth??).
I actually fought liking this mattress (cause I love sleeping on memory foam). But I have to say... this is without a doubt one of the most comfortable mattresses I have EVER slept on. You do feel your partner moving... but who cares when a mattress sleeps this nice. I'm crossing my fingers that at the end of our first year there isn't a depression on hubby's side... but so far so good. I love love LOVE this mattress! It feels different from any other mattress I've ever slept on. I can't even really tell you what that difference is, but it's awesome. We BOTH love this mattress.
Also, Saatva customer service is awesome... and their delivery service was amazing. This is not a shrink-wrapped mattress... it's the real deal. Our bedroom is upstairs. The guys went up the stairs, hauled out our old mattress, then back upstairs to set up the Saatva.
Oh, one more thing I love about this mattress. The memory foam mattresses were so heavy I had to struggle every time I made the bed. This mattress I can actually put sheets on without using any swear words... and without needing a chiropractor afterwards. What's not to love??
well it's not quite what I expected. It's nicely made.. It looks good but wow is it a FIRM mattress. I tried sleeping on it for four nights. Every night I found that I was waking up about every 2 hours. It became literally torturous to attempt to sleep on. Posting this will of course prompt both an online response and likely a phone call from Saatva customer service since their business is so singularly dependent on online reviews. that's what sold me.. "the best reviewed mattress on Google" with 7,000 reviews. But I found I had to put a memory foam pad on top of it to make it comfortable. It reminds me a little of a hotel mattress.. if that hotel is a Motel 6. They have to have super firm mattresses because they last a longer time. The Saatva Luxury Firm is not "uncomfortable" if you think of it compared to a hard surface. It's just not the ideal sleeping environment. Also.. the motion transfer.. I have to say it's pretty terrible. We used to have a "Do Not Disturb" mattress which had pretty good characteristics regarding not disturbing your sleeping partner. The Saatva is much more like a box of jello. Sorry but that's true. Again. .it's nicely made.. looks good... but is not terribly good at providing a good night's sleep. Wish I could be more positive.
Purchased a Saatva luxury mattress back in April of 2015. Not even 3 months later body impressions and sagging developed. Despite rotating mattress as instructed, impressions became worse(solid bed spring underneath). I'm not a heavy person (I weigh about 175, 6ft) and my s.o. weighs less than 100 pounds). Because of this condition, my back has developed excruciating pain. In fact, I thought it couldn't be my mattress because of all the positive reviews (and $1000 price tag). I continued to sleep in it until November when I could afford another mattress (cheap no name) and now my back is back to normal. I'm a busy person, I don't have time to get on the phone and complain but fast forward January 2016, I contact Saatva. I explain my issues to the service representative and I received a very generic response: refund $400 and I keep the admittedly faulty mattress or pay $212 and get a new one. What good is a mattress if I can't sleep in it?! If I pay $212 I'll be out $1200 and no promise if the next mattress will do the same thing. The representative could give me confidence. Judging by the representative's response, this appears to be a common complaint. Yes I read the overwhelmingly positive reviews and saw lengthy no obligation trial for 75 days but how can I be the only one who has a problem? I've lodged a complaint with the BBB and will try to spread the word! Luxury firm mattress by Saatva is very poor quality, DO NOT BUY!
One usually rates a service on a scale of 1 to 10. We rate Saatva at least a 12. Due to my wife's unusual orthopedic complications we had to return
the mattress we had ordered. (Let me point out that for me the mattress was perfect). The staff at Saatva was most understanding, brought no pressure on us, and refunded our money instantly, even before the mattress was picked up. We never heard of anything like this before. We offered
to share the return freight costs but the Company would not hear of it. They only asked if we would consider keeping the box spring foundation. We
eagerly offered to buy the foundations but the Company insisted nay, thanked us for just keeping it. If you need a mattress and want to deal with an
honest company we heartily recommend Saatva to you.
We have purchased the Saatva mattress and love it. However, the delivery company was horrible! Saatva personnel finally resolved the issue with the delivery company and Saatva was helpful all the way. I would recommend the mattress, but have them stay on top of the delivery company for you.
Compared to the firm mattress I was sleeping on (to help a bad back), this mattress is heaven. I bought the Luxery Firm Saatva mattress about a month ago and my aging legs are grateful I did. My old mattress was in great shape but it was just the wrong firmness for me. I had tight leg muscles from the pressure points I endured even with a latex topper. Now my legs feel twenty years younger and I am sleeping a deep sound sleep. I am much more alert during the day. My dog sleeps on the mattress while I am at work when he never did before. (His rumpled dog blanket on the bed is the evidence).
I am only giving this mattress four stars for the following reasons: (1) When I do sleep in (up to 10 hours), my back aches a bit. (2) The description of the mattress says the height is 14". As shown in the photo, the entire mattress is a full 16" in height. I guess they don't count the pillow top portion of the product in the specs. I am disappointed to get something other than what I expected. I would have ordered the 11" mattress instead. You will have to buy deep sheets to fit.
My complaints and praise have nothing to do with this brand of mattress, only my personal experience, so let me add that the quality is excellent - even better for the price. The service of Saatva and the delivery company was outstanding.
Good customer service but either unintentionally misleading stated firmness or possible inconsistencies with production. Wanted fairly firm mattress and I though Firm that's 8/10 on the scale of firmness with 10 being a tabletop should be plent . It wasn't. I suspected that by mistake I got luxury firm but after a phone call it was confirmed that I did get the firm one after all. It wasn't bad but unless you're laying level on it, it's mostly useless. Sitting on it you sink in, on your stomach reading your elbows will bury deep in the mattress. Returned it and got Tuft and Needle (supposedly 7/10 firm) for $550 less and it is firmer, yet super comfy and plush!
Highly recommend. Purchased from Saatva in May. Absolutely the best mattress I have ever had! Previously had the select comfort bed (setting level 35.) Did not buy select comfort again because the foam broke down over 10 years and the area to sleep in is greatly reduced by the foam boarders around mattress including down the middle. First ordered the luxury firm based on sleep style recommendation of back and side sleeper. Found it to be too firm after one night so we changed it to the plush soft. Customer service was wonderful in helping us switch our order. The delivery and set up went smoothly. This bed is soooooo comfortable. We sleep great and wake feeling rested. Absolutely love it!
UPDATING review for Saatva Luxury Firm purchased almost a year ago...When we initially got bed we enjoyed it very much. Now, almost a year later, we are both finding we have more aches than not in our backs/hips. We did put a 2inch foam mattress pad on to help add some cushion, but....... At this point next week we are going to put the boxes and top mattress in mattress bags and store, in outside room til we can sell it an maybe get 1/4 of the price back. Switching to a foam mattress or sleep number. There is sinking starting on each side, even though every 3 months we rotate the top mattress.
I am going to give this three stars to average out the one star I give it for comfortable. My wife hated it and the coils dug into my side and put my arm to sleep. We bought the plush. It was not a particularly good mattress compared to those you'd find in Sears or Macy's. Price was good and it does not sleep hot like Tempurpedic. This may not be so for other buyers, but it made us unhappy, especially in light of the many positive reviews.
With that said, the marketing and customer service is excellent. They want and heavily solicit good reviews. As a result, they go above and beyond if you are not satisfied. This shows integrity and savvy marketing--you are less likely to get the really negative reviews and boost your positive ones. So--they are skewing the playing field, but in a reasonable way and one consistent with wanting to please consumers.
We were interested in replacing our tired old mattress after 12 years - when new, it had felt like we were floating on a cloud. I was inclined toward a soft plush Saatva but the sales rep suggested that, based on my description, we might prefer the medium luxury firm. We received it a month ago. On the positive side, it sleeps cool, which is nice. On the negative side, this is nothing like floating on a cloud. It's more like lying on a board. When I sleep on my side, the side I'm lying on gets numb and aches. My lower back hurts every morning. My arms tingle. It's miserable. I called after 3 days and the rep strongly suggested that we keep the bed for a month - let the foams relax and we'll get that experience we wanted. Well, it's been a month today. I phoned today and they are trading it out for a soft plush for $99. But I think they should have offered to do it for free, since I originally wanted a soft plush but after the conversation with the original rep a month ago they convinced me that the medium was right for me. Now I'm worried about the soft plush but we're willing to give it a try.
I also have to say that I wasn't thrilled with customer service today. First, on online chat, I corresponded with Ariel. She had to send me to the phone line to make the exchange. On the phone I spoke with Ashley. I complained about my level of discomfort, and she went to great lengths to assure me the problem was with my personal preference and not a fault in the mattress. I explained that I had originally expressed interest in a softer mattress, but she said again that she wanted to be sure I was aware that mattress comfort is subjective and that nothing could have ensured our comfort, and that as a courtesy, that the company will exchange the mattress now for only $99 redelivery. No, Ashley, it's not a courtesy; it's part of your sales policy and part of why I bought Saatva. I knew after 3 days that I was miserable and you guys asked me to keep the bed for a month, which I have. Please now don't start trying to convince me that the bed is fine and it's not your fault. Just agree to exchange the bed and tell me you'll be there for me if I need you after I try my new bed too. One last thing - I'm not a complainer, ordinarily. (So if I seem cranky now, I'm sorry but maybe it's because I haven't had a decent night's sleep in a month!)
Highly recommend. Purchased from Saatva in May. Absolutely the best mattress I have ever had! Previously had the select comfort bed (setting level 35.) Did not buy select comfort again because the foam broke down over 10 years and the area to sleep in is greatly reduced by the foam boarders around mattress including down the middle.

Customer service was wonderful in helping us switch our order. The delivery and set up went smoothly. This bed is soooooo comfortable. We sleep great and wake feeling rested. Absolutely love it!
I suffer from an acute, chronic back condition as the result of three surgeries. I find it extremely difficult to locate a place for myself that doesn't cause pain. Our very expensive, but worth the money, Shiffman mattress did the job until it hit the 12 year mark. My wife and I began investigating our options and for a fraction of the cost, decided on our Saatva King! My wife, who I swear was born in Missouri, the show me State, is skeptical of anything new or different, and complained about everything at first! After one night's sleep she was convinced and in love, just like me, the very first night! No pain! Just a floating feeling, best described as Nirvana! Now, we both can't wait to get into our our Saatva mattress as soon as possible, for the best night's sleep, night after night!
When we contacted Saatva for information, we spoke to Ed Brians. Ed was so helpful with his recommendations. We were most impressed by the lengthy time he took to ask about how we were sleeping, what if any problems we were experiencing with our current bed, and what we were expecting of a new bed. He listened carefully and by the time we finished our conversation, there was no doubt that Saatva would soon be in our home. Our original Saatva was delivered years ago; our newest one, a few months ago. The delivery men were courteous, efficient, and very complimentary about Saatva and how happy other customers were when they delivered to them. They presented a very positive impression of Saatva. We anticipated the first night in the bed would not go so well as we might need to get use to sleeping on a new bed, boy-Oh-boy were we wrong! My wife Terri slept all night waking up refreshed and pain free. She couldn't believe how comfortable our new Saatva was and that she didn't feel me tossing or turning at all. She slept an unbelievable ten hours, which was unheard of before our new bed! Where I normally only sleep about four hours (tortuously), I slept in a deep, peaceful, single position for seven hours; something I haven't experienced for many years. I woke up without any of the usual pains, invigorated, and ready to face the day. A peaceful, healthy, and happy nights sleep. Unreal! We are so happy with our new Saatva. The handwriting is getting bolder on the wall. Amazon is the largest retailer in the world with no stores. Saatva has no stores. Amazon is a game changer for shopping in in our world. Saatva is a game changer for shopping luxury mattresses in our world. Ed Brians is a game changer for his remarkable style of talk and warmth in our world. I'm calmer, I smoke so much less and I sleep so much more and I know it's my Saatva! Thank you.
I don't even think about my mattress or my lower back pain anymore. I had a top of the line memory foam mattress that was comfortable when I first got in bed. However I am a stomach sleeper, and I would wake up unable to move, because of low back pain. I LOVE this mattress. It took me months to decide. But when I considered cost, and organic materials I would be laying on Saatva was the best. And it's comfortable! No back pain, no poisonous chemicals. It was delivered with 10 days of my order. Made in the USA. I would recommend this bed to anyone.
Wow what an amazing concept! Skip all that time-wasting, energy-draining, super annoying mattress shopping. No need to worry about returns or refunds if it doesn't work out. There's nothing to lose but so much to gain! So we took the risk - because there was no risk! Just determine what level of firmness you prefer and that's all you need to do.
I wasn't even a tiny bit skeptical because the reviews are great and I'm so very happy to say everything was and is perfect. Ordered luxury firm king sized on line. (Paid about $400 more total than out last mattress which was a queen. Prices are very reasonable given the high quality). Received timely, courteous follow up call and emails. Received calls from delivery company regarding dates and confirmation of time window. On time, no issue delivery. Very nice delivery guys who were shocked to receive a tip. (Tip your delivery people y'all - that's hard work!)
No smells, no nothing. Just gorgeous firm unbelievably comfortable mattress. We seem to toss and turn much, much less in this bed. If one of us does turn over or get up, lo and behold, the other doesn't feel the movement and isn't woken up! Amazing.
We sleep great, no aching back, no morning stiffness. It's hard to get up because the bed is simply so comfortable. I love that it's firm but cushioned,
I've told everyone about our experience. There's no reason at all not to give it a try. You'll save yourself the grief of shopping for mattresses. You'll gain an amazing high quality mattress and fantastic sleep. Highly highly recommend and so very happy I stumbled across this company
I have been sleeping on my Saatva Luxury Firm for about a year and I have never slept better! I used to think I had insomnia because I could never fall right to sleep but now I do. I can't speak for helping sore backs or anything since I don't have any back issues but if you are looking for a well made comfortable mattress, this one is great! And for how nice it is you couldn't beat the price. It didn't take me any time to adjust to it and it's made of really nice and green materials!
We own a Royal Aireloom mattress set and and a Dux mattress set and have been very satisfied with both of them. However, the time came to purchase a new one for our master bedroom and shift the Aireloom to one guest room. After shopping in mattress specialty shops and in department stores, we were confounded by the prices as well as the fact that the same mattress would have a different name in a different store. When thinking about spending over $5000 for a quality product and then having the sales people do their whole sales pitch with a 'but we can do this and that', we were about to give up the whole idea. Then a few months ago, we found Saatva Mattress online and began to do our research. We read all the reviews and then reread them. We thought very carefully for weeks about buying a mattress online. There were several factors that weighed heavily in our decision. First, the price was easily $1000 under the lowest sales price for a mattress in a store (not an Aireloom or Dux, those were $3-4000 less). Second, the representative called us immediately and was knowledgable and courteous in answering our questions about comparing their mattress with our Aireloom and Dux. Third, the fact that in a store, you lie on a mattress for what - 8 -10 minutes max - and make a choice based on that. And last, but hardly least, was the return policy. We thought it couldn't get better than all of the above. And then it did - we got a Veterans' discount! And when the delivery people arrived, they got everything in place without so much as a scratch on the stair walls! We have only slept on it for two nights now, but can state categorically that this Saatva mattress is perfect! My husband is 6' 4'' and when he moved, I hardly noticed. The support, for a back and side sleeper is just right. We look forward to years of sleeping luxury and will undoubtedly purchase a Saatva again. Many thanks!
We have had our bed for three years and it is still amazing. We have had no sags, divots, or creasing either.we could not be happier with this choice. We has bought another Ed 2 years prior and we hated it it within 3 months (from another company)
Do not trust all the raving reviews on their website. I left a negative review and it was deleted or never published. I ordered the plush soft mattress a year ago and really regret this purchase. If you want a soft, cloudlike mattress this is not the best choice. It is way to firm and uncomfortable for my liking.
5 stars for this mattress. after 10 to 20 minutes of what I think will be reading time before bed, the comfort of my new SAATVA mattress settles me in to sleep before I can get into the book. I love my SAATVA California King size mattress. Yeah for SAATVA. Organic cotton and USA made YEAH!!!
We purchased our King-sized Saatva following my total knee replacement 1.5 years ago; we felt with the replacement/refund policy it was a good deal. We ordered the higher box spring, which made our bed like one from 'Princess and the Pea' and difficult to climb into. I called and explained the problem, it was dealt with in a short period of time. The original order was delivered in less time than promised, the delivery service people were wonderful; the mattress is very comfortable. Friends thought we were crazy for ordering mattress and box spring on-line, but it has been the best set we've owned in 44 years of marriage and we have had some high quality sets.
We've only had one night on the mattress so far so this review is about the ordering and delivery process for now. I think I lucked out in terms of the turnaround. First impressions were great. We ordered the 11.5'' king sized plush soft mattress since I like a mattress with some 'hug' since I'm primarily a side sleeper.
We tried the Tuft & Needle king mattress but decided it was much too firm, even with a memory foam mattress topper. After the T&N mattress didn't work out, we went to Sleepy's and seriously considered a $3,600.00+ Kingsdown mattress. We couldn't pull the trigger even if the $750 T&N king mattress didn't work so after reading tons of reviews, decided to give the Saatva at try, especially since we figured out we actually prefer coil mattress over foam ones.
I ordered the mattress on the night of 10/13/15, received a call the morning of 10/15/15 from a Saatva Team Leader confirming my order including specifications and making sure I measured the frame I was using, and received a confirmation email from the Saatva rep shortly after. The rep was friendly and made sure I knew she was there to help if I thought of any additional questions. She told me I would be contacted shortly after to coordinate the delivery.
Sure enough I received a call maybe half an hour later from another rep from the delivery company on behalf of Saatva. She asked if the following Wednesday but I asked if there was any chance we could get it delivered on a weekend and she put me on hold for a minute or so. I think I lucked out because they put me in for the Saturday just two days later, 10/17/15. She explained that they delivered anytime between 8 AM to 9 PM but that I'd receive another call the day before the delivery with a time window.
I received 4-5 calls the next day confirming delivery. It was a bit much. I missed one automated one and called back to receive the info. I then got another from an actual person and I confirmed everything with her. There was then another one with an automated message and I confirmed receipt of the call... and then missed two additional calls, presumably about the delivery again.
The time slot was 4 hours but I did receive a courtesy call 20 minutes before they arrived which was well within the time window. The delivery took maybe 7 minutes at the most. They brought the mattress upstairs for us, laid it on the frame, and took the plastic wrap with them.
Will update the review once we have more nights on the mattress.
UPDATE: Still happy with the mattress! Only complaint is that I sometimes feel my fiance turn, but this could also be partially attributed to our bed frame (we do not use a box spring). I am not experiencing any back or neck pain and am still very much enjoying the 'hug' of the mattress that the plush comes with.
2 nights, and zero sleep. So for me the luxury mattress hasn't been luxury at all. Will give it 2-3 weeks and return if feeling the same way. I had a memory foam mattress and slept well on it, but wasn't good for adult activity. Switched up after hearing all the good reviews. Love the customer service, but not enjoying my sleep. I'll post back in a few weeks. Feel like Al Pacino in that movie Insomnia.
This is by far the most luxurious, comfortable mattress we have ever had. Not only do we both get a great night's sleep, but my long-term back pain is gone. Saatva went above and beyond with customer service, as well. I ordered the 14.5'' king mattress. When it was delivered, I just felt it was too high for me. Even though it was entirely my mistake, Saatva replaced it with the 11.5'' mattress for only a $79 delivery fee. I couldn't believe it, but they just wanted me to be happy. And I am!!! I will be a Saatva customer for life. Highly recommend!
We really love this mattress and my husband and I are both sleeping very well. I was afraid to order a mattress on line but Saatva gives you a 75 day trial and I felt that if we didn't like it we could return it without any problems. We also bought a new comforter set and our bed looks beautiful. I would highly recommend this mattress.o We have always bought Beauty Rest but this mattress is by far the best.
I was told about this mattress by my industrious and frugal niece who had been thoroughly researching mattresses on line. She purchased a Saatva and said she had been 'sleeping like a rock' ever since it arrived. What also appealed to her was that it is a totally organic product. After a little research of my own, I decided to follow her lead and purchased my own Saatva. The first night I was slightly alarmed because it was firmer than I had expected and was used to. But after that initial night I became very enamored of this lovely product. I have been sleeping on it for a month now and feel so much more well rested! Additionally, some of my aches and pains seem to have diminished. I suffer from lots of arthritis and believe the wonderful support this mattress provides has helped enormously! I adjusted to the new level of firmness very quickly and now would not go back. I highly recommend Saatva's flagship Luxury Firm mattress. You avoid all the confusing rhetoric of the sales people at the mattress stores as well (and sometimes bait and switch tactics). If you are in the market for a new mattress, you can't go wrong here....
I am 70 and have slept on airbeds, futons, waterbeds, memory foam, springs, and the ground. I needed a new bed as I was going to have spinal fusion surgery so after doing some looking around, I chose the Saatva. From the time the guys carried it in and set it up I was all over it. The best bed I have ever owned or slept in. I am so glad I bought it. A friend from Virginia Beach bought one recently as well. She loves it. Go get one.
Mattress is high quality at an affordable price, replaced a 'number bed' with this luxury firm, it is firm, yet cushiony, customer service is over the top in good service and their desire to make each customer happy. I especially liked that there is no 'off gassing' at all.......I worried about making an online purchase, but am so glad I did....take the leap, you won't be disappointed!!!
We have the luxury King since Thanksgiving of last year. It's a wonderful mattress. We don't have any aches or pains getting out of it in the morning and just jump off like school children , refreshed and ready for the day. We are both in our 50- ies. I had back surgery due to severe sciatica and bulging disk 5 years ago. Our old mattress actually gave me more flare ups and it was a Tempurpedic , recommended by my Surgeoun. When we made the decision to try out Saatva it was a very scary decision not to be able to see it first or even experience the feel. But with the 30-60!daybtriwl and return policy we went for it.
We are so very glad we did. The best, most restful sleep with no interruption, just an extremely comfort sale and cozy bed. I used to read on the couch , but ever since we got this mattress , I just hop on it and that's my 'me' time. Better than a massage. No need for stretching excersizes just husband, kittens and me in peaceful rejuvenating relaxation.
There is a small indentation where we both sleep but somehow it just caresses the body all in the right places. We have turned it around once so far but it's really not necessary. There was never any chemical scent to it , just beautifully crafted , no need to use cushiony mattress cover , it's just the perfect bed. I hope to have it for a very long time.Note to the manufacturers! Please , don't change anything in the upcoming years.
You make up your mind reading the reviews and asking questions. Customer service is there to answer your questions and to help you get the mattress that fits your needs. No pressure sales talks great bunch of people to work with and never once did they try to sale me a mattress. We have had our mattress for about 3 weeks and from the first night I slept better than I had in a very long time. My wife was not that fortunate it has taken her a little longer to get use to the firm mattress. She is starting to sleep better and longer now that she is getting use to the bed. I even catch her going in there and catching her a nap on her days off. I will say this we came off of a $3000 memory foam bed with a lifetime warranty and bought the Saatva Luxery Firm and wished we had done it a long time ago! I haven't had it long enough to answer any durability questions but you can bet I will be as quick to let people know about how long it last as I was about how good it sleeps.
We bought our mattress about a year ago. We were reluctant to buy it sight unseen but with their guarantee we decided to go for it. It is by far the best mattress we have ever had. I always had hip pain and was continuously having to adjust my sleeping position to get any relief. With our Saatva mattress I no longer have the pain and sleep through the night. You will not find a better mattress for the money.
I own and have used this mattress 1yr now. After numerous toppers I gave up and it is now in the guest room. I think it is made of a good foam but not for people that are not shaped like a log (hips and shoulders of equal width). My husband hated it and he likes firm mattresses. I have wide hips and an Apple shape. Felt like the mattress was fighting my bottom weight giving me the feeling of sleeping downhill (head down). The pressure on shoulders and hip became to much. After 4 different toppers that with or without covers would not stay in place I gave up.
I believe that this one size fits most mattress definitely does not work for heavier and disproportionately shaped persons. Maybe a mattress model with the same base but 2 additional inches of cushioning would work.
WOW. WOW. WOW! Love this mattress. We've had it for just about two months.
I read about it on Consumer Reports - it was their highest rated foam mattress, so I decided to take the plunge and buy it without "testing" it at a local mattress store.
I'm glad I did. We had our previous traditional mattress for twelve years - it was a great mattress (and twelve years ago, still cost $500 more than I paid for this Tuft & Needle mattress). It was a great mattress, so it would have been easy to be disappointed with our new mattress.
But, thankfully, that has not been the case. I weigh about 250, and my wife weighs half that much; nevertheless, we're both happy with this new mattress. Highly recommend it.
We've had this mattress for over a year now and it hasn't broken in like our last mattress. No need to flip or rotate. We originally bought this for our soon coming tiny house but it works just as good in our foundation home too. Like the day we bought it. I will buy one of these again and highly recommend these to all of my friends and family.
I love this foam mattress, and will not try other products any more!!!
Since I'm from Japan, and used to love to sleep on a Japanese traditional futon mattress, my husband and I decided to purchase this mattress. We previously bought a shiki-futon mattress from other company, and found it got thinner after using 1 month or so. So, we were worried if this foam mattress is the same as the previous useless mattress.
So far we have been using this mattress about for one month, but it has not got thinner at all. It's very comfortable that we sleep very well every night! My husband who used to snore loudly every day stopped making noise since we started sleeping on the mattress. I highly recommend this item to everyone!!!
I've officially given this mattress 6 months to win me over, and I have to say that I feel duped by all of the glowing reviews I've read.
I first entertained the idea of ordering this mattress because after buying the highest rated mattress from a leading consumer-driven magazine, and hating it because it was too firm, I was left with mere days to find a replacement, or face sleeping on the sofa indefinitely. So, because I'm pretty Amazon loyal, and after reading many reviews, and seeing that I could have the mattress delivered within 48 hours, I pulled the trigger and bought it. The first few night were unbearable -- firm, strong chemical odor, and overall much worse than the previous mattress I had just sent back. So, I invested a few hundred more dollars on a mattress topper, which had made absolutely no difference. After a few months, it started to sink in the places where we sleep, leaving sad people-shaped spots, so we flipped it over. I resent that I had to flip over a mattress that I've only owned a few months. (I should also note that flipping the mattress over has not made it any more comfortable.)
Overall, I'm underwhelmed by the quality of this mattress.
So my wife and I have been searching for a new bed and after two months of reading every review out there and going into the traditional stores we found an article about Tuft & Needle. I think it was NBC or ABC, I am honestly not quite sure but after reading that and then going to their website and then reading I think every review on Amazon we took the plunge and bought the California King size. And after a week of sleeping on the beds I couldn't be any happier than I am. The first day I slept in it I passed out so hard my wife had trouble waking me up and pretty much every day since then. It is honestly not too soft and not too firm.. I does lean more towards the firm side but that is ok and makes it perfect. On top of that when I get in and out of bed it doesn't seem to bother my wife as much as before when we had a traditional mattress. I highly recommend this bed and both my wife and I are extremely happy customers.
Absolutely the best mattress I have ever used. It doesn't make me hot, doesn't make me cold...I'm just comfortable all the time. Customer service stands by their guarantee.
I was recommended by a friend and Reddit to check out Tuft & Needle mattress when i was looking to upgrade. The webchat with the agent at Tuft and needle answered all the questions i had in regards to my concerns about the weight limit and the cooling factor.
I am a heavy set tall guy that loves sleeping in the cold, and this mattress did not disappoint. I rarely feel warm when I am using it, and that to me was important for me to get a good night sleep.
I bought the Saferest protector based of the recommendation of the Tuft & Needle rep, but sadly could not use it after about two weeks. it got too hot for me. and since I cant return it, its money down the drain.
Overall it was a very solid purchase. just watch out for which protector you buy as it can change the mattress itself.
I weight 220 lb and have been through 3 mattress in past 5 years nothing seemed to hold up or give correct support. Prior to getting this mattress I would wake up every night do to some back pain, and would end up sleeping on floor because it was more comfortable. As a practicing chiropractor I know the benefits of a good supportive night sleep has. This mattress in absolute the best mattress I've ever slept on.
I have to give this a mixed review which I will explain here. First off, the packaging was great, very compact and fun to watch it expand once fully unwrapped. It is mostly as described, very firm and feels like it will give you just enough play to be soft. However, my sleeping experience with it was not ideal, it stayed a bit too firm for my liking. I decided to return it which Amazon was amazing about so that is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 3. Please keep in mind this is a very firm sleeping mattress, I have multiple gel pads and mattress toppers at this point to try and make it sleep-able.
Plainly put, this is the most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on. I've only ever owned spring mattresses, but this time around I decided I didn't want springs poking my back. I was also on a budget, so when someone sent me a link for a similar mattress, I dug deeper and came across Tuft & Needle. I was immediately sold on the ethos of the company -- the good quality affordable mattress, the cutting out of the unnecessary middle man (who really wants to deal with salespeople anyway?), the fact that T&N donates any mattresses that get returned, etc. Upon receiving my mattress, I was then sold on the full package. I love my T&N. It is the perfect mixture of firm (the bottom layer) and soft (the top layer). I found my mattress comfortable from night one, but after breaking it in for four or five nights, it was even better. I can't imagine wanting it any softer and I'm not even big on firm mattresses. It supports and envelopes at the same time, conforming to your body for the ultimate support. For anyone who receives their T&N and feels it is too firm -- give it a few days. You might love it after it breaks in. If not, know that it will go to someone in need. How awesome is that?!
My wife and I were looking for a new mattress and decided to look at online reviews. This was highly rated and we loved the return through charity aspect. We ended up ordering through Amazon to get it a few days quicker and have it arrive on a weekend. I built our slat bed frame from scratch. The mattress had 5-6 hrs to inflate before we slept on it. The first night I thought it might be just me sheer exhaustion from working on the bed. The second night I thought it might just be true. The third night I was sold. This is the best mattress that I have ever slept on in my 34 years on earth. I wake up rested and ready to blast through the day. I wake up without joint pain (ie shoulder, hip, lower back). If you are on the fence about this mattress, I challenge you to give it a try for a week.
I LOVE it!! After researching mattresses for a year or so I finally decided on Tuft and Needle's full size 10". Slept on this last night and had,the best sleep I've had in years. Not as hard as I thought it would be due to the reviews. I'd give it a 7/10; just enough softness with the support your body needs. Because I was nervous it might be too hard I bought a mattress topper/pad from Eluxury which added another layer of heaven. Thank you Tuft and Needle! Wonderful product I'm happy to put my stamp of approval on! Cheers!!
decent bed, but i wouldn't run around shouting about it or anything. i think i mostly like it cause it doesnt take up so much room, and I can move it around fairly easy. i originally bought it thinking it might help with my back/neck, but it didn't really help like i expected. still a decent bed though.
After extensive reading online we decided to go with Tuft & Needle because it seemed to be the firmest of the online mattresses. I think they must have changed the density of the mattress because it is NOT at all firm. We are very disappointed.
Most importantly though: returning through Amazon is a horrible, horrible experience. We read about Tuft & Needle's amazing return policy where you can get a full refund and donate it, which sounded great. When we went to return through Amazon we realized that they only do UPS pickups. UPS will not give us a window (except 9am to 7pm) as to when they will pick it up. My husband and I both work and I am very confused as to how this is going to work considering we cannot stay at home all day waiting for UPS to come. It is not at all clear how I should have the mattress ready for pickup. I just spoke to Amazon and they said I should have it by the front door. Considering it is on our 4th floor now (possible to carry up with two people when in box, impossible to carry down as one person without box) I don't know what the UPS man is going to do. They said if we miss three days of pickups then we will have to drop off at UPS location.
Buy through Tuft & Needle and not Amazon because of the Return policy.
On the fence on this one.
I've had this for about 2 weeks now and I gotta say, Hip pain disappeared within a few days. However, neck, shoulder and upper back pain developed.
Comfort and usability of the mattress greatly depends what you are going to be using it for. If you are ONLY sleeping, it should be ok.
If you plan on doing ANYTHING else, eg. Eating, sitting, watching tv, reading a book, meditating, I would not recommend it. You end up sinking in and lower back pain begins quite quickly to compensate. If you are sitting on the edge (including back near headboard) you will sink below the headboard. As far as sex ... probably better to get a spring mattress, this one has waaay too much give. Remember that you'll have two people (or more) with hands, knees etc in single points sinking in to the marshmallow like mattress. If sitting crosslegged in the middle is a core workout, sex is out of the question.
Sleeping, yeah, it's fine. Anything else, look for a spring mattress.

I wanted to love this mattress. I read all of the reviews, liked the concept of the company, and tried to give this a full try but this is truly the worst product I have purchased. I have not had a good night of sleep on this thing. I planned to return prior to the 100 day trial but then when I went to return I saw that since I had purchased on Amazon I only had 30 days to return which I had exceeded. My back and hips have been horribly tight since I purchased this and my wife has had much the same issues. At this point we will probably just eat the $600 and get something that does not hurt us
We've had this mattress for a little over 3 months now and I feel like I can finally share my final thoughts on it. I LOVE IT. I did weeks of research before making the decision to purchase this one. The other mattress we considered was the Casper, but after testing one out that was in our local West Elm store, we decided that it sunk way too much and probably wouldn't be supportive enough. I wanted a soft mattress and my husband wanted something firm. We found ourselves in a "3 Little Bears" story and were worried we weren't going to find something that was just right for the both of us. But after seeing that T&N gave a 100 day return policy, we took the plunge and bought a king size. It delivered in TWO DAYS! Amazing! I was concerned when we first purchased it because it was very firm, especially in comparison to our 13ish year old tempurpedic mattress (gross!) But it just showed me that having that old mattress was causing so many back problems for my husband and myself. Our tuft & needle mattress took a couple of weeks to "break in" or maybe we just adjusted to the new feeling of it. I purchased a zip mattress cover to prolong the life of it and protect our investment, and then I also purchased a 100% cotton mattress pad, it's not very thick so it doesn't compromise the true feel of the mattress, but just gives a little extra comfort.I wake up hot some nights, but probably because I wear sweatpants, sheets, blanket, and have a heavy goose feather down comforter. I call it my marshmallow bed, because it really is that comfortable. I was not paid to give this review, I just felt like contributing my opinion to those who are finding themselves in the same position as I was in. Solid ethical company, affordable product, comfortable, and chemical free.
I wanted to love this mattress so bad! I was excited to be supporting a seemingly great company. Unfortunately, after a few weeks of sleeping on this, I hate it. My back has been killing me and I frequently wake up with neck and arm pain throughout the night. My day to day tasks have become nearly unbearable to complete with all this back pain I have been having. I am a stay at home mom of 4, so you can imagine how important a good night of sleep is for me. I'll be returning as soon as I can figure out how.
After many years of service (probably too many), my wife and I decided to replace our big name brand memory foam mattress as it had developed permanent soft spots where we lay.
I spent a lot of time looking at different options online, and found the Tuft & Needle videos informative and entertaining. They offer a generous 100 day in home trial (unless you buy from Amazon - more on that in a moment) with the mattress likely to go to charity per their website if you do not like it. When I saw they are on Amazon with Prime shipping, I was sold.
So here is the short and long of it:
1) If you do buy this mattress, do not but it from Amazon. The 100 night trial does not apply, and mattress is subject to Amazon's 30 return policy. You don't like it? Of course you can return it, just pay return shipping and......
Have you ever considered trying to pack and send back a queen size mattress? Sure, it comes compressed and vacuum sealed in a box, but anyone have a queen size bed press and vacuum sealed at home? Yeah, me either.
Oh, and from their website in case you are interested (direct copy/paste): "PLEASE NOTE THAT BOTH THE 100 NIGHT TRIAL POLICY AND LIMITED WARRANTY APPLY ONLY TO ORIGINAL PURCHASERS OF GENUINE TUFT & NEEDLE MATTRESSES WHO PURCHASED THEIR PRODUCT(S) DIRECTLY FROM AN AUTHORIZED TUFT & NEEDLE DISTRIBUTION CHANNEL AND, IN THE CASE OF THE 100-NIGHT TRIAL, ONLY TO THOSE PURCHASERS WHO PURCHASED DIRECTLY FROM TUFT & NEEDLE."
2) If you are a side sleeper, and don't enjoy shoulder pain, run. Run now.
This bed is firm. To firm. Well, in most places. It is oddly extra firm on the sides and softer in the middle. I would blame a box spring, if I used one, but this is sitting on a solid foundation.
When my wife and I are both in bed, we both hurt. The only time I get a comfortable nights rest is when she is working overnight and I sleep in the middle where it is softer. No too squishy soft. Just comfortable. Like I thought the whole mattress would be.
3) Made in the USA by a company owned by real people. I like this, but not at the loss of sleeping well and having a happy, well rested wife.
I am sure this mattress is right for a lot of people to have the ratings it does, but if you buy, buy direct without the benefits of Amazon Prime. The cost of not doing so are much greater.
Bought this mattress almost a year ago. Straight out it looked and felt just perfect. Don't even feel like putting a bed sheet on this thing. A little later we started noticing that when both me and my wife were sleeping on it it felt much less firm and we woke up with back and neck pains sometimes. When only one of us was sleeping it felt perfect. I think it's not able to completely take the weight of two people (we weight about 165 and 110 lbs respectively)
We had mostly gotten used to the feeling over the months but Recently we returned from a trip to India where we had a very firm mattress for a month and immediately felt the lack of support with mattress again and started having an uncomfortable sleep and started waking up with slight back pains.
It pains me to say this because it's such a beautiful mattress and when I'm the only one on it, it feels just heavenly.
We absolutely adore these mattresses! We got one for our 3-year-old as his first "big boy" bed and we all laid down on it and tried it out and loved it, so we bought a second for my 8-year-old! Easy to set up, easy to unpack, inflates quickly. It is a wonderful mix of the give of memory foam but the firmness of a solid mattress to get a mixed-feel mattress that doesn't appear to be severe in either area. Very happy with the price vs. what you get and will happily purchase again -- and will likely be replacing our king master bed with a Tuft soon!
I was a hesitant about ordering a mattress online without trying it first. I decided to go for it since the mattress is so highly rated. I must admit, that I was a little surprised at how much I liked it right away. I had no issues falling asleep. I tend to toss and turn a lot in my sleep, and the mattress is made so that your partner doesn't feel the movement. Needless to say, my wife is now sleeping like a baby. The mattress also keeps cool, so it's great to not feel so hot at times when staying in the same spot for too long. My wife wants to put a mattress top on it, but I'm a little against it. I think it'll take away from it, but we'll see. Overall, solid buy, and you can't go wrong with the price.
So this company said to give the bed a week. I gave it a little bit more than that, as I want to give a true review. The first week was great! I loved it, I had the best sleep. My back pain went away, and I stayed nice and cool. But now, I can already see where I usually sleep, and my husband sleeps. Its not a dramatic cave in, but if its doing it this early, I don't see this mattress lasting us 10 years, like this company said it would. I really wanted this to work, one because I believe in supporting small businesses, and two because we have been searching for years for a mattress to actually last us longer than a year. I don't see this lasting even close to a year. Oh and I also started to notice that the mattress is starting to make a plastic sound. Not all the time, like when I just move a leg, but like when I kneel on the bed or if I put my elbow into the bed. I wish it could stay how it was the first week we had it because I really did have the best sleep ever. I have read some reviews that said the bed was too stiff when they bought the bed, that is not the case for me. It was the best bed I have found, well until now. We might have to return this and pay for a more expensive bed. Like a tempur pedic.
UPDATE: Wow, I am so impressed with this company! They are quick at helping you, and do EVERYTHING they say they will. No extra hoops to jump through, and no small writing you didn't see. They are sending us a new mattress, AND they are taking care of the old one!! That is a huge plus for me. That would cost us time and money to get rid of it. We will be getting our new one soon. I will for sure keep updating, as I hope my next update will be 5 stars! I can't say enough about this company, customer service is fast, and they are very nice and helpful. Just all around an awesome company. I'm very glad we decided to push the buy button. Thank you very much Tuft & Needle
Tuft and Needle is a great company.
My wife and I purchased the mattress on Amazon and it was delivered, as promised, in a relatively tiny box. We unfurled it on our existing box spring and gave it a whirl.
It took about one week to find the mattress comfortable. The first few nights were pretty bad. I woke up feeling very stiff and sore. After my body adjusted, I fell in love with it. Unfortunately, my wife didn't feel the same way. After giving it a go for about 75 days, we decided to cash in on the return policy.
After reading the fine print on their website, it appeared that because I purchased on Amazon, they weren't going to honor the 100-day warranty. I prepared a very intense speech to deliver to the customer service rep, but it wasn't necessary.
Their customer service couldn't have been better. They walked me through the entire process of donating my mattress. Upon proof of donation, they confirmed that my payment would be processed. About 7 days later, a check came in the mail for the full purchase price, including sales tax. In order to avoid any issue with service, head on over and purchase the mattress directly from their website.
I still honestly still can't believe it. You can buy one of these mattresses with absolute confidence that if you don't like it, you can get your money back. I regret that it didn't work out for my family. We ended up buying a mattress at a local store for 4x the price...
This mattress is excellent quality and a good value.
It feels medium-firm to firm when used on slats (IKEA $30 birch slats) - firm enough to support one's spine, but not overly firm for back and stomach sleepers or for some side-sleepers (for side-sleepers used to a memory foam mattress or who have wide shoulders, we found that it's a bit too firm under the shoulders, but comfortable otherwise - definitely more than a coil spring mattress).
For most of us who've slept on it, it's comfortable, but for the side-sleepers, it's just too firm for the shoulders (waking up from pain, turning into chronic pain w/ trigger points after a week); however, we knew from the reviews when we bought it that it was going to be on the firmer side, which works fine for most, but not all, of us. Overall, we like this mattress and consider it to be a good value.
The company has great customer service and we like that they make their mattresses in the USA. It would be really nice if they offered the option of a mattress with a softer zone at the ends (where the shoulders are), for those who cannot tolerate firmer mattresses, since this mattress is excellent quality. We'd give it 4.5 stars if we could, and are only not giving it 5 stars because it is too firm for side-sleepers, despite what the website states about it being suitable for all sleeping styles.
This 10in King mattress is lovely and well-priced. When we unpacked it we didn't really notice a harsh chemical smell. After two nights of letting it inflate and air out, we had the best night's sleep. I like beds firm while my husband likes them on the softer side. Oddly enough, I find it to be quite firm and he thinks it's nice and soft! They seem to have figured out the right sweet spot. Very happy with our purchase and have recommended widely.
Do you like sleeping like a baby and not waking up the next morning feeling like you just spent 8 hours in the ring with Mike Tyson? If the answer is yes then this mattress is for you.
I'm 6'4" (190lbs) and my wife is 5'7" (115lbs), we were looking for a bed to fit our needs and weight absorption/distribution was a concern. Our previous mattress was too hard, we purchased a 3" memory foam to soften the load, both had us feeling like we were getting beat up each night. My wife use to talk about her neck and my hips and lower back hurt so bad - we honestly thought it wasn't related to our mattress.
It wasn't until the 2-3 day of using the TN until we talked about it, we both realized we had not said one thing about our hips or neck. Since then we've been waking up feeling like we've gotten an extra hour or two of sleep and without any pain.
If you've got hip or lower back pain, this mattress might be just what you need. If you're on the fence, don't be, get it done. You'll thank yourself later.
I did a ton of research on mattresses before splurging.
Here is the deal. If you want the best mattress in the world, you will go buy a Sealy Posturepedic mattress. You will also spend upwards of $2,000. I wanted a high quality mattress, but I did not want to spend $2,000. Consumer Reports led me to Tuft and Needle.
Consumer Reports ranks three different brands as "best buys" when it comes to mattresses. The Sealy brand is one, and the brand that Costco sells is another. The third is Tuft and Needle. Perhaps the mattresses that Sealy and Costco sell are better, but I think that the Tuft and Needle mattress is the best value.
Yes, it is a firm mattress, but it isn't like sleeping on a hardwood floor. In fact, I found little in the way of pressure points while lying down on this mattress. I tend to be a stomach sleeper. I know, that's horrible for my back, but I've had sinus issues my whole life, and sleeping on my back or side causes horrible pressure to build up overnight. I usually fall asleep on my side and then find myself on my stomach when I wake up in the morning. The first night was a little weird, but the insert that came with the mattress advised to give it at least a few days for the mattress to completely air out. After a couple of nights, I had adjusted, and I can say with certainty that I like the mattress.
The interesting part is that it didn't seem, at first, like it was all that great. Yesterday, though, I tried to take a nap on my old bed because I was washing the bedding for this one. It wasn't the same. It's kind of like internet speeds or HD television. It doesn't seem all that great when you first use it, but you definitely notice it when you try to go back.
I give this mattress five out of five stars.
I decided to write my review some months after buying the product. At first, it was ok. Firm and comfortable. But now, 7 months later, the mattress is a real mess. It seems like it got deformed in the edges, it's very soft (I like firm mattresses and by the reviews of this one that should be the case) and I wake up almost every morning with a pain in my back.
If you like soft mattresses, that shouldn't bother you. But if you are like me, who likes a harder feeling one, stay away from this one.
Will never go back to a futon or spring mattress again knowing foam mattresses can be this comfy. It's so supportive but yet still soft when you sit on it. While laying down, it doesn't feel like I'm sinking in at all and I'm 220 lbs!! I'm a side sleeper and only have back issues if I've been extra busy at work, so it's no fault of the mattress. It's holding up remarkably well too. I sit on the edge while playing Xbox1 but there is not an area there that feels worn out or softer than the rest of the mattress. Also I don't feel the cats jumping on and off the bed in the night anymore. Woohoo! highly recommended like so many other ppl have too.
Some people hate memory foam mattresses, other love it. If you absolutely hate memory foam, there is very little chance you'll like this mattress. It's not quite memory foam, but it's very similar.
My main point of comparison is a $2,000 (over 3x the cost) Tempurpedic mattress I owned. I was happy with that mattress, but lost it in a fire. Researching mattresses I came across Tuft and Needle, contacted their costumer support (incredibly responsive by the way) and decided that given their return policy (take it to charity within 30 days, show them receipt, and you get your money back) I gave them a try.
I am so glad I did.
I had 2 minor gripes with the tempurpedic:
1. It gets very hot between you and the mattress
2. You kind of sink in - no bounce, kind of hard to move about.
I loved the comfort, support, etc. Well, except the price tag, everything is well made.
This tuft and needle just one upped it. NOTE: I bought this right after they started shipping mattresses with their custom top layer of foam. The mattresses went up in price by like 20-25%, but supposedly this is a really good foam. I cannot compare how the mattress was before, just the new version of it. (2015)
- Does not get hot! You don't sleep hot like with a tempurpedic.
- Feels great. Most comfortable mattress I've ever slept in. They did a great job with it.
- You don't sink in quite as much, it pushes back a little. "localized bounce" is their marketing term, but basically, you don't totally sink in.
- All materials and constructions from the USA.
- None so far.
So far I love this mattress. I hope it lasts, but I got nothing bad to say about it. It is very comfortable, their support is amazing, return policy great. Honestly, seems like a great company and they are producing a quality product are a good price.
Highly recommended if you are considering any memory foam mattress.
Happened upon Tuft & Needle quite by accident and read all the reviews. The only complaint some people had was that they really wanted a soft mattress and this T&N was too firm for them. So I thought it was exactly what I needed. Firm support, soft top and not sweaty. I live in Hawaii and it really is important to have a mattress that breathes otherwise you feel like you are in a sauna. It arrived promptly, I unwrapped it per directions and voila, instant mattress. I thought my back was getting worse because of my age, and guess what? It was because of lack of support while sleeping. I sleep well and my back does not hurt now. A VERY worthwhile investment for me. Needless to say, I am more than pleased.
I waited to do this review because when I was researching mattresses, I wanted to know how they held up. After owning this mattress for over a year, I can honestly say that this is the best mattress, hands down, that we've ever owned. We traveled recently and kept telling each other that we only had a few days left before we would be back to our own mattress. Falling into bed after we got home was an exquisite relief. We've owned innerspring, memory foam, and sleep number beds, and they don't hold a candle to the comfort offered by the Tuft and Needle.
Every part of the mattress supports you so that there are no pressure points, just like the memory foam, but it doesn't hold your shape, so if you roll over in the night, you don't roll over into a hole--it springs back immediately to cushion you again. It holds a small amount of heat, but my husband, who is sensitive to temperature when he sleeps, doesn't have any problem. For me, it's enough to ensure comfort. After over a year of ownership, there are no sagging spots or indentations, and no loss of firmness. The mattress is just exactly firm enough for us because there's support without pain. My husband needs a very firm bed for his back, and I prefer a softer bed. Memory foam was too soft for him, innerspring was too hard for me, and the sleep number was just a miserable experience for us both (yes, it's sort of like the Three Little Bears around here!). The Tuft & Needle has what it takes to meet both our needs, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Mattress was hard as a rock. My wife and I gave it two full weeks to try to get acclimated to it and for it to 'break in'. After 2 weeks, we were tired of losing sleep and ultimately went back to the mattress we were trying to replace. Also beware of return policy - You don't get the 100 day return time frame when purchased through Amazon. Now we are stuck with this mattress we can't use or we have to figure out how to ship it back to Amazon.. :(
There are a few things that you should always buy in person to check for quality.
Fresh fruit. Diamond rings. Cars.
Up until a few months ago, I would have added mattresses to that list. Wasn't that one of the morals of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears"? Most of us were taught that the moral was that a life of crime doesn't pay and you really shouldn't be sneaking into other people's houses - especially if they are bears - but another, often overlooked moral was "not every mattress will feel JUST RIGHT. Try before you buy."
When I saw T&N's claim of a mattress with optimal comfort, I was skeptical. What worked for Mama Bear and Papa Bear wasn't what worked for Baby Bear.
But T&N's business model intrigued me as did their pricing structure. And if their mattress didn't work out, I would return it and they would donate it to charity. Win-win.
I'm happy to report that Goldilocks was wrong. There are some mattresses that are JUST RIGHT for everyone. This is one of them. My husband and I both sleep well on our King mattress from T&N. The quality is fantastic. The business model is sublime. And my bank account is happy that I didn't spend a small fortune on a bed.
So I guess you could say we're living happily ever after.
Unlike Goldilocks. Who really shouldn't have broken into the bears house.
Unless you enjoy sleeping on a stack of bricks or plywood, because that's about as soft as this mattress is, then you'll hate this mattress as much as we did. I got better sleep on the mattress in our camper than I did on this thing. We bought this because it had thousands of reviews and nearly a 5 star rating. However, it is the firmest mattress ever. The off-gassing from the foam was horrific. I had to lay a blanket down on top of the sheets to add another barrier so I couldn't smell the chemicals from the foam. Even spraying with Febreze and letting it air out did not help. It took about a week for the smell to dissipate.
Thankfully there is a 30 day sleep trial with this mattress and a full money back guarantee. We called Amazon to return this mistake and was issued our full refund within a few hours. You can't return the mattress but you will get your refund. We were told by Amazon (via telephone and email) that you can keep the mattress, donate, or sell it. At least Amazon was very helpful and had great customer service with this purchase.
This is my second Tuft and Needle mattress--the first one I had slept on is on the third floor of an old house in Baltimore, actually on an old wood floor. This is a fantastic night's sleep!
If you have tendinitis, this doesn't hurt pressure points. It's very, very comfortable if you are a back sleeper.
One warning: once you open the second cover, the mattress will inflate like a balloon in a matter of seconds. Don't open that last cover until you've put the bed where you want it. Recommended.
Edit: After a few days, I feel better than I have in years. (I was sleeping on a fifteen-year-old Sealy futon.) Seriously, this will make back pain and tendinitis from sleeping on an old mattress better in days. This is a cure for soft tissue pain caused by an old or too hard bed. It's amazing.
First of all, the price is legit-ski. I'm talkin' divine quality mattress, at a human price point. Look, I tried other mattresses, even my baby boo's Tempur-pedic and it doesn't compare. I'm also in love with your transparent pricing, so much so, I want to marry it. I can't even! When it comes to obscene mark-ups, due to lack of market competition. Tuft & Neddle is a serious strike toward fair market pricing. It's the American dream you can sleep on! Could this get any better? Yes! I'm not even done. My mattress aka "Love Cloud", was shipped straight to my face, within days. Easy to transport and hecka-easy to setup. I sleep better than I ever have, in the sum total of my foolish life! In conclusion: great sleep at a fair price, + customer consideration and service that's off the chizzy = me telling everyone I know about Tuft & Needle AND showing them pictures. I wish you sold t-shirts and had an instagram account, so I could rep you hardcore and follow your every move! 10 outa’ 10~!
I'm debating returning this bed. It's pretty firm, and seems comfy when I'm sleeping on my stomach but i sleep on my side too. Its way to firm for when i switch to sleeping on my side. The shoulder i sleep on gets very sore, to the point it hurts to raise my arm. Not what i expected when i spent this much on a bed that claims to stand up to the larger names in their industry.
