10 Best Saatva Classic Hybrid Mattress Reviews from Customers

/ September 1, 2020

One of the most popular mattress types on the market these days is the hybrid mattress. Think of it as a souped-up version of the classic innerspring mattress.

A hybrid mattress features multiple layers for comfort and support. Usually, that's a steel coil support system that gives you the classic springy feel, topped with a comfort layer made of body-hugging memory foam, polyfoam, or responsive latex. A high-quality hybrid mattress will also have a pillow top made of foam, cotton, or wool for an extra layer of cushioning.

Because it combines a coil base with a foam comfort layer, a hybrid mattress essentially offers a "best of both worlds" sleeping experience.

How do you know which hybrid mattress is right for you? We happen to think our bestselling Saatva Classic is the best hybrid mattress out there. But don't just take our word for it. Here's a closer look at the Saatva Classic, along with hybrid mattress reviews from actual customers.

Saatva Classic

The Saatva Classic hybrid mattress blends the durability and support of a coil-on-coil innerspring system with the finest eco-friendly foams and the cushioned comfort of a Euro pillow top.

One of the biggest pros of the Saatva Classic is that it comes in three firmness options: plush soft (soft), luxury firm (medium), and firm to suit a wide range of sleep styles and body types.

  • Plush soft has a deep, body-hugging feel thanks to softer firms and extra padding in the pillow top. It's ideal for side sleepers who like extra contouring, lighter-weight individuals, and anyone who knows they like a soft, cushiony feel.
  • Luxury firm, our bestselling firmness option, provides the perfect balance of comfort and uplifting support. It's great for couples and is comfortable for every range of sleep positions, from side to back to stomach.
  • Firm is designed to feel like you're lying on top of the mattress rather than sinking in, with firmer foams for balanced resistance. It's ideal for stomach sleepers, heavier body types, and anyone who knows they want a very firm mattress (or if your doctor recommends an extra-firm mattress).

Another benefit of the Saatva Classic: It excels at protecting your back while you sleep. It's designed with our patented active wire support in the center third of the mattress for optimal spinal alignment, plus a memory foam layer that helps relieve pressure on your lower back. The Saatva Classic also carries the seal of approval from the Congress of Chiropractic State Associations.

Other key features of the Saatva Classic include:

  • Luxury Euro pillow top that packs in more cushioning materials than a standard pillow top and is tucked under an organic cotton cover and finished with our exclusive Guardin® botanical antimicrobial fabric treatment
  • High-density edge support made from foam encasement that deters sag and provides extra durability and a supportive feel spanning the entire surface of the mattress
  • Individually wrapped comfort coils that are designed to respond and contour to your body, while also minimizing motion transfer
  • Durable steel coil support base made from triple-tempered coils that won't sag

Here's what customers have to say about the Saatva Classic:

"Every morning we wake up and say how perfectly we slept"

"I can't even begin to say how amazing our sleep has been since purchasing this mattress! Every morning we wake up and say how perfectly we slept, which is quite the change from the frequent middle of the night wake-ups we used to have." (Read the full review.)

"It is so comfy and cushiony in all the right spots"

I absolutely love my new bed. It is so comfy [and] cushiony in all the right spots. Best sleep I have had in a long time. And money well spent. I bought the Saatva Classic Mattress, Queen: 14.5" Luxury Firm. And it is perfect. I give it 5 stars!!!" (Read the full review.)

"No pain upon waking"

I'm female, 5'5" and weigh 124 lbs. with joint issues. My first night on the plush soft was a game-changer. No pain upon waking. LUXURIOUS and SUPPORTIVE!!" (Read the full review.)

"The support is incredible"

"I purchased the Queen Luxury Firm and it's amazing. I haven't slept this well in years, and the support is incredible. I find that I wake up refreshed and feeling like I truly got a good night's sleep. The quality of the mattress is top-notch and the price is fair. I feel like this is a luxury mattress like the ones they use in high-end hotels. It feels really good after a long day." (Read the full review.)

"I haven't slept this well in years, and the support is incredible."

"My back pain that I've suffered for years is gone"

"It's been a week and I'm completely in love with my new bed. I went to bed at about 11:30 last night and woke up at 7:49. That's 8+ hours of sleep. I don't know if I've ever done that before. AND my back doesn't hurt. One week ago, I couldn't walk upright if I stayed in bed for that long. My back pain that I've suffered with for years is gone. If you're looking for a new mattress, but don't want to go full foam or latex—try Saatva. Their mattress is hybrid (springs and foam), the firmness is customizable (because one size does NOT fit all), they use organic materials, their price is VERY competitive, AND white-glove service is included." (Read the full review.)

"The perfect combination of firmness and comfort"

"I was skeptical about buying a bed online, and without testing it out first. However, after reading all the reviews and the 120 [day] return policy, I decided to go for it. I chose the 'Luxury Firm' in a Cal King. The delivery went accordingly, and they removed my old mattress. The guys were very professional. I was concerned about the firmness of this mattress, but this bed is the perfect combination of firmness and comfort. I have had the bed for over a month now and am very pleased, with no regrets." (Read the full review.)

"Best mattress we have ever owned"

"Purchased the 14.5" luxury firm mattress with 8.75" box spring approximately 4 months ago. While we were hesitant to buy without the ability to physically lay on it, absolutely no regrets. 100% satisfied. Best mattress we have ever owned. Has relieved ongoing back pain from sciatica. The buying process was efficient and professional from order through to delivery. High recommend!" (Read the full review.)

"An immediate difference in my sleep experience"

"I noticed an immediate difference in my sleep experience. I would normally wake up with awful hip pain with our old mattress. I woke up pain-free!!! You don't realize how bad off your situation is until you experience a better way. Our previous mattress was over 20 years old, and I spent several hundred dollars on foam toppers and mattress pads to improve comfort. The modifications would help for a little while, but the hip pain would come back. This entire process was better than shopping at a store. I always felt like the salesperson was looking for a commission versus meeting my needs!! I'm very proud of myself for doing the research and selecting a super comfortable mattress!!" (Read the full review.)

"The most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on"

"Absolutely the most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on in my 65 years of existence! Any initial reservations I had about buying a mattress online sight unseen evaporated the first night I slept on my wonderful Saatva mattress. For the first time in decades, I sleep through the night and awaken refreshed and NOT sore! Truly one of the best purchases I've ever made!!!" (Read the full review.)

"Absolutely the most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on in my 65 years of existence!"

"We both awake well-rested in the morning"

"This Saatva mattress offers a firm, level, very supportive surface, and its combination of coil and foam layers gives a remarkable feeling of lying on a mattress which is firm, but at the same time feels luxurious. My wife is handicapped and sleeps exclusively on one side. I sleep both on my side and my back. We both awake well-rested in the morning, and I have surprisingly enjoyed the feeling of just wanting to lie there in bed just a little longer in the morning just because it feels so comfortable."
