    Anyone have or know about a Saatva Mattress?

    Problems with my back and bed are getting worse and worse and I badly need to get a new one. Have researched but not seen several, e.g. sleep number etc., and found this brand online. Sounds very good but is sold only online so can't try it. Wondered if anyone has or has had one or knows someone who has?

    I think I would want to see/feel/try out a mattress before purchasing.

    I've had continuing back problems for almost 30 years now. I've looked long and hard at the Sleep Number beds, and my friend has one and loves it, but I'm really hesitant after reading so many negative comments about them. You might want to Google "Sleep Number discussions" and see what people say. I love the feel of the Temperpedic beds, but they tend to run very hot, I've read (also very expensive). So, I ended up buying the cheapest Sealy Posturepedic - has all the coils but no padding - and putting a 3 inch memory foam topper on it. That has worked best for me for the last 6 or 8 years. It's still not perfect as the memory foam IS hot, but you can get the toppers with a gel layer now and they are supposed to be cooler.

    I wouldn't buy any mattress I couldn't try first. Good luck!

    Well we have a temperpedic knock off with the cooling gel and it still gets hot. I too had seen this one online but couldn't find anyone who had or knew someone with it. Didn't think to ask here - DUH. So thanks for posting - will be watching

    here's a good review that doesn't sound like it was done by someone affiliated with the company

    I have a regular firm mattress with a foam pad on top to cushion my joints. With all the padding I have elsewhere, why don't I have any fat to cushion my shoulder joints?

    I bought a memory foam topper a few years ago and really like it. I had/have some pressure points that were always making me wake up from the pain. The topper did the trick for me.

    I have a temperpedic bed. King size 3 yrs. ago cost us $3500, including the box springs.
    Wish we had gotten it sooner. Didn't realize our other bed was almost 20 yrs. old, but
    we would turn it every month or 2, and it sure held up. As far as testing a mattress in
    the store I don't think you can lay there long enough. Most co.will let you try it at home
    for at least month.
    Love to quilt and play with the great grandkids

    It sounds nice, but read the return policy. The price is only for the mattress, no box springs. We have a european sleep works bed, no box springs. The base is wooden slats that are adjusted, my side for my weight and height and hubby side for his body. There is no foam, no memory foam, no smelly foam at all. It has little coils and wool and is the most comfortable bed we've ever owned. My hubby has a really bad back and he sleeps like a baby on this bed. Google european mattress, european sleep works, european sleep designs and european slat beds, lots of stuff will pop up.

    Some years back people were raving about the water beds and how they helped their backs. Now, there are so many brands out there. We have a temperpedic and it does retain heat but I love it as I'm always cold. We turn it every time we make the bed as it tends to mold to the body and I feel sometimes like I sleep in the same spot all the time. I believe I read we should change matresses every 10 years but we don't seem to be that rough on them as they last longer.

    One of my sons got the sleep number bed from QVC mainly because of the return policy. They ended up keeping the bed and like it very much, but, weren't sure and didn't want to pay to send it back. And I agree with grannie cheechee
    that you can never lie on one in the store long enough to see if it will work.

    I have a Sleepnumber bed, and can only rave about it. Never heard of the Saatva.

    This may sound crazy but I am now sleeping on an air mattress purchased from Walmart. The sleep number mattresses are an air mattress so I tried the cheap way first and it works well. No more back and hip issues.

    Never heard of this mattress but after reading all the posts and the reviews online, I think I may buy one in the near future. Thanks for the heads up.

    It definitely sounds like an interesting bed. We currently have a Serta iSeries bed that is working quite nicely.

    I have a bad back 10 spinal surgeries, I love my 5" memory foam, couldn't live without it anymore.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I had the Memory foam mattress (the expensive one) and it did make you hot - it really held in the body heat - my hubby and I would often wake up bathed in sweat - so we bought a sleep number bed - it was almost the opposite - because it's an air bed - it stays cold from the air - I could never stay comfortable on mine - it killed my back and my hips - I felt like I couldn't walk in the mornings - also, it seemed like it was hard to keep the sheets on the corners - I think it was the different air pressures for the my side and my husbands. So we got rid of that one - now we went back to a good old fashioned pillow top firm mattress - it was a little too firm so I added one of those memory foam toppers to it and works just fine - it was not expensive either. If you do order the bed - make sure you get one that you can return if you don't like it - I think its one of those things - either you like it or you don't. Good luck.
