The Solaire by Saatva is an airbed offering adjustable firmness settings, as well as dual-firmness in larger-size beds. The Solaire is constructed with a quilted organic-cotton pillow-top, followed by comfort layers of zoned Talalay latex and gel-infused memory foam.
The support core construction varies by size; Twin XL and Full sizes have one air chamber, while all other sizes have two air chambers and offer dual-firmness settings. Owners use a remote control to adjust the volume in their bed’s air chamber(s); this makes the bed feel firmer or softer, depending on the settings. The remote offers 50 different chamber volume settings, which are numbered 1-50 and adjustable in increments of 1; based on the 1-10 firmness scale, the Solaire offers a range of ‘Soft’ to ‘Firm,’ or 3 to 7. The Solaire’s support core also has a base layer of high-density convoluted polyfoam and a ‘Power Edge Enclosure’ that houses the support materials and reinforces the mattress. The bed measures 13 1/2″ thick.
Like other airbeds, the Solaire’s most notable advantage is adjustable firmness. The user-friendly remote allows owners to easily adjust the feel of the bed. Users can also store memory settings on the remote, enabling them to restore their favorite settings with minimal hassle. In terms of construction, the Solaire provides plenty of cushioning with its pillow-top layer and good pressure relief with the Talalay latex and gel-infused memory foam comfort layers. Comparatively, many competing airbeds do not offer this level of padding or material quality. The dual-firmness settings for larger beds also make the Solaire ideal for couples with differing comfort preferences.
The Solaire has a fairly expensive price-point, which is typical for airbeds. Saatva offers free White Glove delivery – including in-home assembly and old mattress removal – for all orders in the contiguous U.S. The mattress is backed by a 120-night sleep trial and a 25-year warranty.
Read on to learn more about the Solaire in terms of pricing, construction, and performance ratings. We’ll also provide an overview of Saatva’s shipping, return, and warranty policies, as well as some similar brand recommendations.
Based on our customer feedback, Solaire mattresses 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 mattresses. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a mattress.
Due to its adjustable firmness settings, the Solaire is suitable for most sleepers regardless of their weight or preferred position. Owners adjust the volume of their air chamber(s) between 1 and 50. Lower levels (1-25) are softer and conform closely, making these settings ideal for lighter weight and side sleepers. Higher levels (26-50) result in firmer surface that conforms less closely, which is optimal for heavier, back, and stomach sleepers.

As any consumer does with a product they’re considering, our mattress assessments naturally involve comparing them with other similar products. Be it composition, firmness, or price, we think it’s important to see how Solaire mattresses stack up to other beds.
The Solaire is an optimal mattress for sleepers who like to adjust their firmness settings and don’t mind spending a little extra. The mattress can be adjusted for any setting between ‘Soft’ (3) and ‘Firm’ (7), a range that accommodates most sleepers regardless of their weight or preferred position. The Split and Upper Flex options are ideal for sleepers who use an adjustable base, as well. The Solaire is constructed from organic-cotton, Talalay latex, and other high-quality materials that set is apart from most competing airbeds. It is a good choice for sleepers who prefer thicker-than-average beds too.
