Quick Overview

Saatva launched their brand in 2010, specializing in luxury mattresses and bedding. One of the first online mattress providers, Saatva has a ‘no-store’ policy so interested customers can only find their merchandise online. The company is best known for the Saatva Mattress, a high-end mattress offered at half the price typical of premium mattresses. In addition to mattresses, Saatva offers high-quality bedding, including sheets and pillows.

This includes the Saatva Pillow, a specially constructed, three-layer pillow. The outer layer is composed of a 100 percent organic cotton cover. Its interior is made of a micro-denier fiber outer core, and an inner core filled with shredded American Talalay latex. The pillow is designed to be hypoallergenic, so Saatva washes the latex core multiple times to rid it of proteins and other allergens. Its gusseted design allows the pillow to keep its original shape and avoid going flat. Both the cover and pillow’s outer layer are machine washable. The Saatva Pillow is also adjustable; the outer core easily separates from the pillow’s inner core, letting you choose which components of the pillow you wish to sleep on.

Read on to learn more about the Saatva Pillow and some important considerations for purchasing one.

Recommendations

Getting the most out of the Saatva Pillow will depend on a few factors. For example, your body type, preferred sleep position, and whether you tend to move around a lot during the night. If you’re a light bodied sleeper who wants a pillow that will stay in place, you could find the sturdy, plush Saatva Pillow to be quite cozy.

For considerations linked to sleep position and weight, please view the table below.

Saatva Pillow Sleep Position Lightweight Sleeper (less than 130 lbs) Average Weight Sleeper Rating (130 to 230 lbs) Heavyweight Sleeper Rating (More than 230 lbs)
Soft Side Very Good Good Fair
Back Very Good Good Fair
Stomach Poor Poor Poor

The Saatva Pillow promotes proper spinal alignment among most sleepers. Still, some sleepers will find the Saatva Pillow is more comfortable depending on your sleep position or how you adjust the pillow. For example, side sleepers will appreciate the firmness and loft created by the complete, gusseted pillow. Meanwhile, the inner Talalay latex core may work better for those on their back.

Ratings

It’s always a good idea to get user feedback when trying to determine how well you might like a product. In this section, we’ll look at how past Saatva customers felt about the different features of the pillow. For instance, how durable it is, how well it retains its shape, odor potential, and so on.

Category

Durability

Criteria

Lasts between two and three years.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

Customers haven’t complained about durability issues, as Saatva Pillows typically last about three years.

Category

Firmness Options

Criteria

The amount of firmness choices the pillow provides sleepers.

Rating

Fair

What Buyers Say

Some felt that despite the adjustable nature of the pillow, it was ultimately too soft, and lacked the ability to improve its firmness to a satisfactory degree.

Category

Shape Retention

Criteria

The ability of a pillow to retain a full, supportive shape, rather than flatten out over time, requiring constant fluffing.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

One of the top selling points for customers is the unique gusset shape, which specifically helps the Saatva Pillow retain its original shape for much longer, instead of flattening out over time.

Category

Moldability

Criteria

The more moldable a pillow, the easier they are to scrunch or squeeze into various positions, which can be ideal for sleepers who prefer to snuggle with a pillow.

Rating

Fair

What Buyers Say

Users found the inner core of the pillow has the greatest potential for being molded into various positions. However, the whole pillow isn’t overly adjustable.

Category

Conforming

Criteria

The ease with which some pillows conform to the contours of the head and neck, providing targeted pressure relief as well as optimal comfort.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

Those who rested on the pillow compared it to down and said that it does seem to conform to the head and neck area in an optimal way.

Category

Temperature Neutrality

Criteria

Some pillows will sleep hot or cold depending on the material used for the cover and interior as well as the amount of overall breathability.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

Customers felt the pillow didn’t get too hot and they were able to sleep all night.

Category

Odor Potential

Criteria

“Off-gassing” is common, but for certain pillows, it can cause them to have a stronger, longer lasting odor that might interfere with personal comfort levels and even make sleep difficult.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

Users said that they did not experience any off-gassing odor.

Category

Weight

Criteria

Certain pillows are light and fluffy while others are much heavier than average. A heavier pillow will make it hard for sleepers to roll around or maneuver at night.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

The pillow is solid, and sleepers said that it stayed in place all night. Additionally, the weight of the pillow kept sleepers from moving around too much. If you like to move around a little at night, this might bother you.

Category

Ease of Cleaning

Criteria

Some pillows are machine washable, others can be spot cleaned, and certain pillows require professional/dry cleaning.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

Users had no trouble removing the cover and outer layer in order to clean them.

Those who bought a Saatva Pillow enjoyed sleeping on it. Particularly, they appreciated its plush, hotel-quality luxuriousness. The only real complaints were from stomach sleepers, who found that it was too plush for their liking or some who felt it wasn’t as adjustable as they wanted. Still, most feedback about the Saatva Pillow in terms of comfort and quality was largely positive.

What You Need to Know about the Saatva Pillow

Product Construction & Firmness

The Saatva Pillow possesses a unique “three-layer” design. The outer cover is composed of 100% organic cotton. Its gusseted design helps the pillow maintain its height and shape instead of flattening over time. The outer core of the pillow is comprised of a silk-like, micro-denier fiber substance that can be thought of as a down alternative. Lastly, the inner core of the pillow is made up of shredded 100% American Talalay latex.

The pillow is adjustable—with a loft that ranges between two and eight inches depending on the removal of the inner or outer pillow core. Both the cover, which unzips, and the outer core are machine washable. Although the pillow contains a shredded latex core, it’s hypoallergenic. During construction, Saatva washed the Talalay latex five times to remove the latex proteins known to cause allergies.

The overall pillow firmness is described as Medium-Soft. Although ideal for back and some side sleepers, the softness level might not be suitable for stomach sleepers.

Pricing & Sizing

The look and feel of the pillows are meant to recall that of luxury hotels, which tend to use larger pillows for guests. Therefore, it makes sense that Saatva chose to limit their pillow size options to Queen and King. The table below offers price and size information.

Size Dimensions Loft Price
Queen 28” x 18” Adjustable $145
King 34” x 18” Adjustable $165

Trial Period and Guarantee

Saatva offers a 45-night sleep trial for the Saatva Pillow.

If you wish to cancel your order, call 1-877-394-1075 before it ships. Otherwise, just return the pillow after you receive it. Saatva does not offer exchanges. The next best thing is to return your order and replace it with whatever item you prefer.

Warranty

Outside of the 45-day trial, Saatva Dreams does not offer a warranty for its pillows.
