Quick Summary

Saatva is a U.S.-brand best known for the Saatva and Saatva HD, Loom & Leaf, Zenhaven, and Solaire mattress models, as well as the Saatva Pillow. The brand also offers a mattress topper available in three different designs:

  • The Graphite design features a top layer of graphite-infused memory foam and a support layer of high-density polyfoam. It measures 3 inches thick and has a ‘medium-soft’ feel.
  • The Latex design is constructed from ventilated Talalay latex. It measures 1.5 inches thick and has a ‘medium’ feel.
  • The High-Density Foam design is produced from polyfoam. It measures 1.5 inches thick and has a ‘medium’ feel.

All three toppers include removable organic cotton covers with corner bands for added stability.

Each Saatva topper offers a unique sleeping experience. The Graphite design is cooler than many of its all-foam competitors and provides close, consistent conforming for sleepers. It also isolates motion well.

The Latex design also sleeps fairly cool and has good responsiveness for sex. Its expected lifespan also exceeds that of the average topper. Lastly, the High-Density Foam design contours to the sleeper’s body for pain/pressure relief and improved spinal alignment. It provides great motion isolation, as well. All three Saatva toppers are silent when bearing weight.

Saatva toppers range in terms of cost, but generally have above-average price-points. Saatva provides free shipping for all orders in the U.S. and Canada. The toppers are backed by a 120-night sleep trial and a one-year warranty.

Read on to learn more about Saatva toppers in terms of construction, pricing, and performance. This guide also includes an overview of Saatva’s shipping, return, and warranty policies, along with some similar topper recommendations.

Durability

The Plush Pillow-Top topper from Novaform has an expected lifespan of about two and a half years. This is typical, since pillow-top layers tend to deteriorate rather quickly.

What Type of Sleeper is Best Suited to a Saatva Topper?

Based on our customer feedback, Saatva toppers have received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different toppers. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a topper.

For more information on sleeping positions please see our guides for side, back, stomach and combination sleepers.

As you can see, all three toppers earned the most positive ratings from side and back sleepers who weigh 230 pounds or less. For some heavier sleepers, the toppers may be too soft and prone to sagging. This is particularly true for stomach sleepers.

Compare Toppers

How Do Saatva Toppers Compare to Other Toppers?

As any consumer does with a product they’re considering, our topper assessments naturally involve comparing them with other similar products. Be it composition, firmness, or price, we think it’s important to see how Saatva mattress toppers stack up to other toppers.

The Graphite topper from Saatva has a ‘medium-soft’ feel and measures 3 inches thick. As a result, it is best suited to side and back sleepers who weigh 230 pounds or less. The Latex and High-Density Foam models have a more balanced, ‘medium’ feel. They are ideal for people in any sleep position who weigh 130 to 230 pounds, as well as some lighter individuals.

Larger people – particularly stomach sleepers – may find the Latex design offers the best combination of firmness/support and body conforming.

Set-Up and Care Instructions

The set-up process for Saatva mattress toppers is as follows:

  • Saatva mattress toppers ship compressed in a box. Owners should unpackage the topper and allow it to expand to its full shape before using it for the first time.
  • If the topper emits noticeable off-gassing odor, owners may want to air it out in a well-ventilated room.

The cleaning and care process for Saatva toppers is as follows:

  • Owners should never wash foam or latex topper components in a machine. Spot clean with cold water if stains occur.
  • The topper’s cover is removable, and can be washed and dried in a machine. Wash in cool water and dry on a low or no-heat cycle. Air drying is also acceptable. Make sure the cover is completely dry before placing it back on the pillow.
  • The cover is designed to be slightly on the larger side to prevent excessive shrinkage after the first wash.

Availability

The Saatva toppers are exclusively sold on the Saatva website. They are not available on Amazon.com or through any other third-party retailers at this time, and Saatva does not operate any brick-and-mortar locations.
