Who Is Saatva Latex Hybrid Ideal For?

The Saatva Latex Hybrid has three major selling points: it’s made of natural and organic materials, medium-firm, and it’s not a bed in a box. On top of that, Saatva’s attention to detail clearly shows up in this mattress. 

Ideal Saatva Latex users are:

  • Eco-conscious individuals shopping for a greener mattress. 

  • People who prefer natural latex over memory foam. 

  • Hot sleepers looking for a temp-neutral mattress. 

  • Sleepers who prefer a responsive mattress with minimal contouring

  • Back and stomach sleepers, particularly those who weigh under 230 lbs

Saatva Latex Hybrid Firmness

Saatva Latex Hybrid firmness level is 6.5 on the mattress firmness scale of 1-10. This makes it a medium-firm mattress. Medium-firm is the most popular mattress firmness option because it suits most sleep styles. It’s a good all-rounder in that it balances support and cushioning.

With the latex and coils, you may think that this Saatva’s mattress sleeping surface will be unyielding and likely to cause pressure points. But that’s not the case. Thanks to its hand-tufted Euro top and soft organic wool and cotton comfort layer, this comfortable Saatva latex mattress has a pillowy softness that lets you sink slightly to cushion your pressure points.

In addition, the wool, cotton, and latex combination helps minimize the bouncy feel of coils. The result is a highly responsive mattress that is also very easy to move around.

Saatva Latex Hybrid Construction

Speaking of Saatva latex hybrid construction, this 12” tall mattress has 5 separate layers. The hybrid construction of Saatva Latex mattress means that you enjoy the best of three mattress technologies: natural latex, individually pocketed coils, and Euro top. 

Euro top cover

At the top is a Euro top layer made of organic cotton cover quilted with wool. The organic cotton cover is stretchy, soft, and breathable for a cool night. This cover has Saatva’s Guardin botanical antimicrobial treatment to promote healthier sleep. Guardin is a non-toxic blend of essential oils and minerals that inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew. 

The organic wool layer adds some plushness, which helps relieve pressure on key pressure points. This layer also helps regulate temperature and wicking away moisture to create the ideal environment for a long and healthy night of sleep. 

5-zone natural latex

The main comfort layer of this mattress is a 3-inch block of natural Talalay latex. Talalay latex has a fluffier feel that allows it to adapt like memory foam to relieve sensitive pressure points. You will experience a bit of sinkage, but not enough to make you won’t feel enveloped. Importantly, this natural latex layer is zoned, providing targeted support to prevent back pains. 

Pocketed coil support layer

The support core in the Natural Saatva latex hybrid is a system of zoned pocketed coils. Lower-gauge coils are used in the lumbar region to support your lower back and promote good sleep posture. Lower-gauge coils have also been used around the perimeter to bolster the edges and allow you more sleeping surface. 

Stable and durable base

All the above layers of Saatva latex rest on an organic eco loft pad made of a blend of organic cotton and GOTS-certified organic wool. This pad reinforces and stabilizes the coil system while boosting the durability of the entire mattress.

Is the Saatva Latex Hybrid a Good Mattress?

Saatva Latex Hybrid Back Pain

You may want to buy the Saatva Latex Hybrid for back pain for several reasons. Thanks to its medium-firm design, this mattress offers the perfect balance of softness and firmness that your body requires for proper spinal alignment. Natural Talalay latex is a top choice for people with back pain because it combines surface cushion and firmness. It cradles your body to relieve pressure points while supporting your lower back properly.

Pain relief with Saatva Latex is also promoted by its zoned design. It provides enhanced support around the torso and lumbar regions to maintain an even sleep surface, reducing back pain.

Saatva Latex Hybrid Cooling

The Saatva Latex Hybrid is one of the best mattresses for hot sleepers. Cooling features of Saatva Latex Hybrid are in each of its layers. For example, organic cotton covers are celebrated for being more breathable than conventional cotton. Similarly, wool is among the most breathable mattress components in the market. It pulls excess heat while wicking away moisture, making it a great choice for hot sleepers.

Further down, Talalay latex is naturally more breathable than all other foams, including Dunlop latex. The coil system also helps promote temperature control in Saatva latex by allowing air to circulate freely to keep the sleep surface cool.

Saatva Latex Hybrid Motion Transfer

There is a notable degree of motion transfer in Saatva Latex, owing to its latex and coil construction. These two don’t isolate motion that well, particularly compared to memory foam. You may be able to have a glass of wine in bed comfortably. But the bounciness as one changes positions or gets in and out of bed may cause sleep disruptions. This sleep disturbance with Saatva Latex makes it our least favorite option for light sleepers.

Saatva Hybrid Latex & Sex

Mattress Verdict experts chose this model as the best Saatva mattress for sex. Intimacy on Saatva latex is enhanced by its bounciness, minimal conform-ability, excellent edge support, and superb temperature regulation. 

A bouncy mattress means a good level of energy return, which can make intimacy more enjoyable. The buoyant and springy latex prevents you from sinking too much, besides making it easy to switch sex positions. Also, because it’s quiet during sex, Saatva Latex makes it less likely for others to overhear.

Saatva Latex Hybrid Off-Gassing

Off-gassing occurs in foam mattresses made of petrochemicals. The major off-gassing culprits are memory foam, polyfoam, and synthetic latex mattresses. 

The new mattress smell Saatva Latex Hybrid produces does not contain VOCs because it’s made of natural products. Saatva Latex odor duration will be short (around 24 hours) because it’s not a bed in a box.


Sleeping Positions

Saatva Latex Hybrid for Side Sleepers

Lightweight (less than 150 lbs)

Speaking of Saatva Latex Hybrid for lightweight sleepers, side sleepers under 150 lbs will feel a bit of pressure on their hips and shoulders. That’s unsurprising, considering this is a medium-firm mattress with a latex comfort layer. 

Average-weight (between 150 and 230 lbs)

The Saatva Latex Hybrid is a good mattress for side sleepers weighing between 150 and 230 pounds, especially those who prefer a firm sleep surface. Side sleepers in this weight range are heavy enough to activate the contouring attributes of the latex layer, leading to pressure relief. 

Heavyweight (above 230 lbs)

The Saatva Latex Hybrid for heavyweight sleepers who prefer sleeping on their side is a good choice. With its medium-firm setting, this mattress prevents the excessive sinkage that heavyweight side sleepers may otherwise experience on a softer mattress. You can check the Saatva HD designed specificly for plus size people.

back sleeper icon

Saatva Latex Hybrid for Back Sleepers

Lightweight (less than 150 lbs)

The Saatva Latex Hybrid for back sleepers less than 150 lbs will be a great pick if they prefer a sturdy mattress. Otherwise, it may feel too firm for their liking. 

Average-weight (between 150 and 230 lbs)

The Saatva Latex Hybrid is the best mattress for back sleepers in this weight category. Back sleepers who weigh 150-230 lbs will enjoy enough sinkage and support to keep their spine aligned and adequate contouring to protect their shoulders, hips, and lower back from unnecessary pressure build-up. 

Heavyweight (above 230 lbs)

Most back sleepers who weigh above 230 pounds should also find the Saatva Latex Hybrid comfortable and supportive thanks to its zoned design. However, some back sleepers weighing 350+ lbs may experience excessive sinkage around the hip area, which may throw their spine out of alignment. A firmer mattress like the Saatva HD, which is designed for plus-size individuals, may be a better option.

stomach sleeper icon

Saatva Latex Hybrid for Stomach Sleepers

Lightweight (less than 150 lbs)

Lightweight stomach sleepers who prefer sleeping on a firm mattress should do quite well on the Saatva Latex Hybrid. However, stomach sleepers in this weight range may appreciate a slightly softer mattress. 

Average-weight (between 150 and 230 lbs)

Like back-sleeping, the Saatva Latex Hybrid works best for average-weight stomach sleepers. It has enough sink to keep their shoulders and hips aligned and adequate cushioning for their midsection. 

Heavyweight (above 230 lbs)

The Saatva Latex Hybrid is a good mattress for heavyweight stomach sleepers weighing up to 300 lbs. Above this range, you may not get enough support, and this may lead to back pain issues.

Our Mattress Verdict

So, should you buy Saatva Latex Hybrid? As our Saatva Latex rating suggests, we are huge fans of this mattress. It’s a well-constructed, durable, and organic mattress that ticks most of our boxes. It has excellent temperature regulation, edge support, and responsiveness, all of which make it perfect for sleeping and sex. Perhaps its only weakness is its notable motion transfer, which could cause sleep disruptions among light sleepers. Note that the Saatva Latex Hybrid leans more towards support than contour-ability with its latex-over-coil design. So, while some side sleepers will enjoy sleeping on it, we’d recommend it to back, stomach, and combination back/stomach sleepers.
