Saatva and Brooklyn Bedding have two popular mattresses that have used the online-only business model to great success. There are some similarities between the two mattresses, as well as a few key differences. I’ll go over the main differences here to help you make a more informed decision.
- Both have a similar business model and also have multiple firmness options
- Both have great customer service and generous sleep night trial periods
- Both have a resilient/springy feel that a lot of sleepers will really enjoy
- Both mattresses sleep cool throughout the night
- Brooklyn Bedding is made of latex and polyfoam; Saatva is made with springs, memory foam, and polyfoam
- Brooklyn Bedding is bouncier than the Saatva because of the latex on the top of the mattress
- Saatva is 1.5 inches thicker than Brooklyn Bedding
- Saatva has a zoned construction to give more support in the middle part of the mattress, while Brooklyn Bedding has a more uniform feel
- Saatva sells a Queen for $999 (no coupons) and you pay for shipping; Brooklyn Bedding sells a Queen for $750 but you typically get another 5% off and there’s free shipping
Saatva has a traditional luxury spring mattress design that starts with a standard base layer of coils. Above that is another layer of pocketed coils, completing what’s called a “coil-on-coil” design. Above that is a layer of memory foam and then a quilted layer with a euro pillow style design. The mattress features zoned construction, which means that the center of the mattress is firmer and more supportive where people need it the most.
The #bestmattressever features two layers of latex over a base layer of polyfoam. The materials are durable and the mattress is very breathable. With latex as the comfort layer, the mattress is very bouncy, more so than the Saatva.
You Might Want To Pick Saatva If:
- You Are Used To Traditional Spring Mattresses– Saatva is an upscale version of the spring mattresses so many people are used to. If someone likes that type of feel, Saatva is the way to go.
- You Are Heavier– Saatva is thicker overall and the zoned construction makes it more supportive where heavier people need it the most.
You Might Want To Pick Brooklyn Bedding If:
- You Want To Save Some Money– If someone is really having trouble deciding between the two, they can at least save a few hundred dollars by going with Brooklyn Bedding.
- You Want A Bouncier, Foam Feel– If someone wants extra bounce and resilience, then Brooklyn Bedding is definitely the way to go.
Which Should You Pick?
I think the decision really comes down to what type of feel people are looking for. If someone likes and is used to traditional spring mattresses, they will probably really enjoy Saatva. If someone wants a foam feel with a little extra bounce, then Brooklyn Bedding might potentially be the way to go.
