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.
- Similar business model
- Both have firmness options
- Both have great customer service
- Both have a resilient/springy feel
- Both mattresses sleep cool
- Brooklyn Bedding is made of latex and polyfoam; Saatva is made with springs, memory foam, and polyfoam
- Brooklyn Bedding is bouncier than the Saatva
- 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
- 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. There is 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. This means that the center of the mattress is firmer and more supportive where you 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 you like 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 you are really having trouble deciding between the two, you can save a few hundred dollars by going with Brooklyn Bedding.
- You Want A Bouncier, Foam Feel– If you want extra bounce, 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 you are looking for. I you like and are used to traditional spring mattresses, I think you’ll really like Saatva. If you want a foam feel with a little extra bounce, then I think Brooklyn Bedding might be the way to go.
