New Premier Luxury Firm Queen, now a King Also

I had been researching mattresses for almost a year. this past August, my back pain was so bad from my old mattress, I had to quit sleeping in my bed. A friend sent me a link to look at the Saatva mattress. I researched it thoroughly and read all the reviews I could find. Finally I ordered a new Queen Size Premium Luxury Firm mattress and foundation set around the first of September 2014, and it was delivered 11 days later. The very first night was absolutely sleeping in luxury. I have not had any morning back pain since I started sleeping on my new mattress from Saatva. I have thanked my friend several times for their link, although she does not have a Saatva as of yet. I have since convinced her that Saatva is definitely the way to go.

Now I have just purchased a complete new bedroom furniture set with a King Size bed frame. I didn't hesitate one moment to order my new King size Premier Luxury Firm mattress and foundation set. My current Queen set with the new Saatva mattress will now go in one of the guest bedrooms. I have friends from across Texas who occasionally come to the ranch to visit, and they will also now sleep in luxury.

I went with the 14.5" Luxury Firm mattress with the 8" foundation on both the Queen and King sizes as this height works well with the bed frames and night stands I have. Also, I like the height because I do not have to get up out of bed in the mornings, I just slide my legs over the edge of the bed onto the floor and I'm up and walking. So this also reduces any morning back stress. I am 6'1" tall. My wife is 5'5" tall, and she says the height works very well for her also.

And, the mattress is not HOT as most of the memory foam mattresses tend to be. It seems to breath very well.

Overall, best thing I have ever done for my sleeping .......

Blessed Relief!

Prior to purchasing a king size Luxury Firm Saatva mattress and foundation we owned a year old top-of-the-line (and costly) memory foam system. I have severe spinal stenosis in the lumbar and sacral regions of my back, to the point that I could only walk with a walker. My pain level was increasing dramatically the longer I slept on the memory foam bed. We received our Saatva bed earlier this week, and after only two nights sleeping on the Saatva bed my pain level has been reduced by at least 90%. After the second night I was able to retire my walker to a closet, and walk normally for the first time in several years. I would recommend Saatva to anyone who has a back problem, and if I could rate the Saatva 10 stars out of 10, I would! Thank you for producing such a high quality product and at a surprisingly reasonable price!!!

My 8 month review!

I think it was back in October 2012 when I bought two twins to put together and make a king- because a king wouldn't fit through my weird stairwell. At the time I was having terrible sleep...Two people on a tiny full size is awful, especially when one has a back injury! So, I can tell you that I was very excited about getting a new bed.

I put my order in and delivery day came around, and it turned out only one of the twins was sent. I wasn't terribly upset because I realize accidents happen, but I was definitely concerned about how Saatva was going to handle fixing the issue. I spoke with a super nice guy at Saatva (I think his name was Alex) who apologized profusely, refunded my delivery fee, and sent me the other half of the bed not soon after. I was relieved at how awesome the customer service was, and how quickly Saatva fixed the problem. When I think about how much I love my Saatva, I honestly don't remember the delivery mishap- the problem was handled so well that it's like it never even happened.

Anyway, it's been some time since I bought the bed(s) and I have been incredibly happy with how things have turned out. As mentioned, I have a back injury (nerve damage and some other stuff) and the Saatva has been incredibly good at putting me to sleep at night. Every time I lay down in the bed I sigh SO loud because I am SO comfortable! I think that with my injury I am getting the best sleep I could possibly be getting, and I am so glad I went with Saatva as my choice.

I tell everyone about Saatva...even when they aren't mattress shopping. If I won the lottery and I could afford ANY mattress in the entire world, I would still go with Saatva, and I would put one in each of the twenty bedrooms in my mansion. :)

9 months later...

We have had our Saatva for 9 wonderful months. No more pain! We are in our 60's (young 60's, that is) and experienced hip, shoulder and back discomfort on our former sleep set. We ordered the new Luxury firm set after having been discouraged trying to evaluate other brands. With the other firms encountered gimmicky pricing and pushy salespeople, and came away with no clear understanding of what would be best for us. I read everything I could find on Saatva and called their company 3 times - once on speakerphone so my husband could hear. They were polite and informative and never aggressive in their sales tactics. We love our bed - a uber comfortable, restful night's sleep. Thank you for developing such a good product at a great price.

Lovin It!

My husband has had issues with his back/ribs and our Doctor's Choice mattress (only 3 years old) was making it worse (or maybe was the cause). My husband reviewed mattresses for a couple weeks prior to our Saatva purchase. Saatva really sounded good and the price was right. So, we took the step and purchased the Luxury Firm. This mattress is everything we were hoping it would be. We've had our Saatva for a month now and he is so much more comfortable, and can actually lay on his side to sleep. He doesn't toss and turn, which is good for me, too. From my standpoint, it is a very comfortable mattress-the support is just right and I don't have any little nagging aches in my hips and low back when I wake up. It's thrilling to know it's not because you're getting old, it's because you didn't have a Saatva!

I am a procrastinator important and unimportant things that's me, all my life, late for my wedding, late arriving to the hospital to give birth to my daughters, late for job interviews, late, late! Well, after two years of studying the Saatva reviews and other well known TV ad mattress reviews including researching other mattress companies, educating myself on how coils and mattresses are made I decided to reward myself and decided that Saatva would be the chosen one. I am 60 years young, employed full time with a stressful government job and on top of that have suffered with scoliosis (curve-age of the spine) since it was detected when I was 27 years old.

Don't expect your order in the next three days, that is not how it works however that is the only con. The delivery guys were excellent, they called first, took their time, both pieces were completely thick plastic wrapped and took their time making sure to all plastic and paper was removed from the floor when they left. I had some trepidation the first night as I prepared getting ready for bed-time. I somehow was trying to convince myself that I should not panic and to not worry if this mattress change was going to do more harm than good. You see I went from a 9 year old extra firm mattress to now a plush Saatva. I was preparing myself that if this plush mattress didn't work out well then just exchange it, simple as that. Keep calm I was telling myself as I dozed off. I finally reached the point of what I call serious sleep, and so serious that I woke up the next morning thinking I had only slept a short time and here comes the tossing and turning. I looked at my alarm clock and that is when I realized I had awaken only 15 minutes before my regular daily alarm of 6:30 AM. I started thinking OH MY GOODNESS, HOW DID I SLEEP 7 HOURS straight? I cannot recall the last time in the past ten years that I have ever slept that sound and waking up not feeling like I had slept on a table top! How did that happen? I could not also believe it that I was able to sit on the side of my bed reaching for my slippers with no back pain, no neck pain, I was able to walk downstairs without taking one step ahead of time as I would usually do because the pain would be a locking type of pain in my back and in my hips. If I didn't think my cat would run and hide if he saw me skipping to the kitchen I started to skip to the kitchen to start my coffee going. I can't wait for the winter months and rainy days on the weekends so I will have a good reason now to "stay in bed, get some rest" and catch up with my Kindle best sellers.

I hope someone else can benefit from my review who suffers with back aches, knee arthritis aches, neck pain and primarily lack of a good night's rest. I don't know how Saatva does it but all I can say is thank you Saatva and kudos goes to Paul the customer service department rep who contacted me by cell and email to let me know immediately the status of my order. I have been so busy telling my co-workers, friends, daughters and anyone else that immediately says to me that I look rested or that I have a glowing facial skin or even better yet tells me that I appear happy well that is when I open up about Saatva. As one friend told me that it sounds and it looks as if Saatva is better than Botox! I could only smile and say I think you are right, but Saatva will last longer! I am so glad I spent my hard earned money on Saatva. Thanks Saatva!

Simply Amazing!

Love it! 1st night with our new mattress(luxfirm). We both woke up with no back pain & no numbness/ tingling in hands. I spent the last 1.5 years in pain & wanting to replace our 10yr old pillow top/plush. Sales people over here are way too pushy in stores (I know they are trying to make a sale- but it's a huge turn-off to me) I just about gave up buying a new mattress. Then I went online & researched different mattress companies. I decided my purchase had to be environmentally friendly, organic cotton, & Made in USA. Then I found Saatva. I cannot express how please we are, both with quality of mattress, overall customer service, and delivery/set up. I would like to note after being on a plush/pillow top for many years with no back support, this luxury firm is the best! It's not too firm (like the cheap stuff sold in stores) it does have a little give to it, not like you're sleeping on a piece of plywood. Just the right touch. I'm recommending Saatva to my friends and family. Still on the fence about buying one? It's one of those things you need to get it & try it out. To see for yourself.

Amazing Surprise!

Over the last 15 years, I have tried top of the line BeautyRest and Sleep Number mattresses. None have alleviated the aches with which I awoke each morning. In the last few years, as my knee would lock up during my tossing and turning and my hip would ache, I have lost so much sleep. I finally consulted my orthopedic surgeon, and knee surgery is scheduled soon, to be followed by the hip. In the meantime, I purchased the luxury firm Saatva mattress, hoping it might help. I am getting a solid night of sleep, now, not tossing and turning so the knee and hip don't wake me anymore, and I have not had the usual morning lower backaches. While the surgeries will be done, I am ecstatic over the wonderful sleep I have been getting since this mattress arrived. I never thought it possible!!

Calling all Fibromyalgia patients!

I have been ill for 32 years with Fibromyalgia and a according to my doctor, a constellation of other physical ailments. Proper rest goes a long way toward healing our bodies. I just couldn't get comfortable in any bed. My cat Pook was no help either. He’d jump on the bed and walk right down the edge of my body, hitting every sore spot as he went along. Ouch!

I had a Beauty-rest when I was 15 (1968) and graduated to a Stearns and Foster in my mid 20's. That was a great mattress and lasted a long time but I did have to add an egg crate topper towards the end of its life along with a board for some firmness. After that I got a pillow-top. I was sick with Fibromyalgia by then. It was nice but it had a long break-in time and I liked it at first until the saggy places started showing up. (You know the places I'm talking about.) We tried topping it off with the same type of egg crate and graduated to The Tempur-Pedic toppers, both the 2” and then the 4”. Turning this queen size pillow-top mattress was a Herculean task. The Tempur-Pedic’s properties made it too hot for my husband and I. That was fine for the winter but not the summer! It was also hard for my husband and me both to move easily on it. Getting out of bed was very painful!

I have a friend with FM also with the same issues of overheating and not being able to turn easily in her current bed with the 4” topper. When you are in so much pain this movement makes it so much worse. This same friend has tried all different types of beds including the Sleep Number Bed. She said it was too noisy. So since I am disabled and not able to shop for beds, I decided to do my research online. At that time I didn’t see all of the advertising for this company. So I bought it sight unseen. I was trusting in all of the reviews and the owners pledge to see that one would be happy with their purchase.

I’M SO GLAD I DID!!! That’s when I found Saatva. We purchased their LUXURY FIRM FLAGSHIP LEVEL.

The very first night we got wonderful sleep on it. We needed absolutely no adjustment period or any topper of any kind. Great support and we are not lightweights anymore. I think I have sold a couple for them to friends and family, even without them laying on our bed to see how it feels. One of the young gentlemen that installed it had one in his home and loved his too. This is only my personal recommendation for people with Fibromyalgia and others who need to get better sleep. I love it!!!!!!!! I hope that you will too!!!!!
