The Loom & Leaf mattress is a high-quality memory foam mattress created by Saatva. The Saatva product line includes the Saatva Classic mattress, the Saatva HD mattress, the Saatva Solaire mattress, the Zenhaven mattress, and the Loom & Leaf mattress. The Loom & Leaf mattress, which we cover in this review, is the brand’s memory foam mattress.
There are two firmness options to choose from, both of which have layers of memory foam and polyfoam. The foam construction relieves pressure, which is ideal for anyone who suffers from chronic back or joint pain. Instead of compressing the mattress and shipping it in a box, Loom & Leaf offers free White Glove delivery. This includes old mattress removal.
We’ll break down how the Loom & Leaf mattress performs in essential categories like motion isolation, temperature regulation, edge support, and more. We’ll also outline considerations for different sleeping positions, body types, and comfort preferences.

Loom & Leaf Mattress Review: Our Verdict
The Loom & Leaf mattress is a high-quality memory foam mattress that offers pressure relief and close contouring. It’s an ideal pick for any side sleeper, since the thick comfort layers cushion the shoulders and hips as they press into the mattress.
It’s also a great fit if you know you like the conforming feel of memory foam. The mattress alleviates pressure points and reduces chronic joint and back pain. For couples, the memory foam comfort system reduces motion transfer and prevents sleep disturbances.
Another benefit to the Loom & Leaf mattress is that White Glove delivery and old mattress removal is included. This makes set-up a breeze, which is good news for anyone who might need additional assistance.
The downside to memory foam is that it can retain heat. This means the Loom & Leaf mattress is not one of our top picks for hot sleepers. And if you know you don’t like how closely memory foam conforms to the shape of your body, this mattress also wouldn’t be the best fit. Couples who want a mattress with more bounce may want to consider a hybrid model, like the Saatva Classic mattress.

How Does the Loom & Leaf Mattress Feel?
The Loom & Leaf mattress is constructed with layers of memory foam and polyfoam. It relieves pressure on the shoulders, hips, and back.
You can choose between medium firm (6) or firm (7-8) when purchasing the Loom & Leaf mattress. Both options have thick comfort layers of memory foam that offer deep contouring. This comfort system cradles the body and provides the feeling of sleeping “in” the mattress. A transition layer of polyfoam prevents sinking in too deeply.
The medium firm option conforms more closely than the firm option, making it a better choice for side sleepers and those who weigh less than 130 pounds. The firm option is better for back and stomach sleepers over 130 pounds, as it offers better support for the hips and lower back. Both options have a high-density foam core that supports the body and keeps the spine aligned.
What Is the Loom & Leaf Made Of?
The Loom & Leaf mattress is 12 inches thick, which is taller than average for a memory foam mattress. There are multiple foam layers, which we’ll break down here. High-density foams add durability to the mattress. The foams used in the Loom & Leaf mattress are CertiPUR-US certified, meaning they are low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and made without the use of harmful chemicals. The mattress is manufactured in the United States.
The cover of the Loom & Leaf mattress is organic cotton quilted with 0.625 inches of foam. This layer includes natural thistle as a flame retardant instead of chemicals. The cover cannot be removed, which is the case for most mattresses. It can be spot cleaned as needed.
The comfort system of the Loom & Leaf mattress includes a three-inch layer of two combined memory foams. Gel-infused memory foam in the cooling “Spinal Zone” layer supports the lumbar region. The phase change material (PCM) in this layer helps draw heat away from the body. The memory foam also has a “pin core” design for added airflow. The deep contouring nature of the comfort system relieves pressure points and helps keep the spine aligned. A two-inch transition layer of polyfoam reinforces support in the mattress and prevents sinking into the support core below.
Support in the Loom & Leaf mattress comes from six inches of high-density polyfoam. This foundation reinforces the layers above, which helps support the spine. It also increases the lifespan of the mattress as high-density foam is more durable than low-density foam.
Does the Loom & Leaf Isolate Motion?
We expect memory foam mattresses to isolate motion exceptionally well, and the Loom & Leaf mattress delivers. Memory foam is slow to return to its original shape after pressure is applied. The thick memory foam comfort system absorbs movement and prevents it from transferring to other parts of the bed.
Since both the medium firm and firm options use memory foam in the comfort layers, they are rated similarly when it comes to motion isolation. The Loom & Leaf mattress has minimal bounce.
Motion isolation is especially beneficial for couples, as it prevents sleep disturbances throughout the night. Since the Loom & Leaf mattress isolates motion, you shouldn’t feel your partner toss and turn or get in and out of bed. This makes it easier to sleep throughout the night.
Does the Loom & Leaf Sleep Cool?
Rating: 2/5 (Medium Firm), 3/5 (Firm)
Memory foam retains heat. This type of material reacts to both heat and pressure to offer a customized feel, but can result in the feeling of sleeping hot. This is true for the Loom & Leaf mattress, though it does have gel-infused memory foam to offset heat retention to a certain extent. The foam comfort layers also feature a “pin core” design to allow air to circulate.
However, the medium firm option conforms more closely, which restricts airflow around the body. While the firm option retains less heat, it may not be comfortable for hot sleepers. In general, hybrid mattresses have better airflow due to the coil support base. Natural latex mattresses are also more breathable than synthetic foam.
Will It Sag Along the Edges?
Those who sleep near the edge of the bed should still feel supported on the Loom & Leaf mattress. The foam transition layer and high-density polyfoam support core provide consistent support from edge to edge. Since the mattress is made with a high-density polyfoam base, it resists sagging over time. That being said, we expect any foam mattress to lack edge support, as foam reacts to pressure. These mattresses also lack reinforced perimeters, which you are likely to find in hybrid models.
The lack of a reinforced perimeter in the Loom & Leaf mattress is most noticeable when you sit on the edge of the bed. This is especially true for those who weigh over 230 pounds. The firm mattress has a slight advantage in terms of edge support. The firmer feel makes it easier to get in and out of bed.
Is It Good for Sex?
The Loom & Leaf mattress has an average rating for sex. The mattress has minimal bounce and conforming memory foam. This makes it difficult to change positions. The firm mattress sinks in a little less than the medium firm, but not enough to make a significant difference for intimate activity. In general, hybrid mattresses perform better in this category than foam mattresses, since they have more bounce and resilience.
There are benefits to the Loom & Leaf mattress, though. It is silent when bearing weight. The mattress also has better than average edge support for a foam model, which increases the usable surface area of the bed. Though the memory foam sinks in under pressure, it can provide traction.
What About Off-gassing?
There is an initial odor to the Loom & Leaf mattress, but it dissipates within a few days. This is to be expected with any synthetic foam mattress. Off-gassing is the result of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) being released into the air. The Loom & Leaf mattress is low in VOCs. Since it is not vacuum-sealed prior to delivery, there is less off-gassing than some bed in a box mattresses.
What Type of Sleeper Is the Loom & Leaf Mattress Best for?
Since there are two firmness options to choose from, the Loom and Leaf mattress accommodates nearly every sleeping position. Both firmness levels offer pressure relief and contouring. There are special considerations to keep in mind for each sleeping position, which we’ll break down here.
- Side Sleepers: The Loom & Leaf mattress is an excellent choice for side sleepers. Since side sleepers’ shoulders and hips press into the mattress, they usually prefer a mattress that conforms closely and alleviates pressure on these areas. The Loom & Leaf mattress fits the bill. Since the memory foam evenly distributes body weight and reacts proportionately to the shoulders and hips, the mattress keeps the spine aligned and supports the body.
- Combination Sleepers: Combination sleepers may find that movement is slightly restricted on the Loom & Leaf mattress. This can make it difficult to change positions throughout the night. The firm option may be a better choice for combo sleepers, since it prevents sinking in as much. That being said, both options offer ample support for side, stomach, and back sleepers.
- Back Sleepers: Back sleepers will appreciate the conforming nature of the Loom & Leaf mattress. Memory foam contours to the shape of your body and supports the lumbar region. This keeps the spine aligned and prevents pressure on the lower back.
How Does Body Weight Impact the Loom & Leaf Mattress's Performance?
Body weight impacts mattress performance in a few ways. The more you weigh, the more pressure you apply to a mattress. This can affect how much support a mattress provides, and whether or not your spine is kept in proper alignment. You’ll want to consider your weight, sleeping position, and comfort preferences when determining if the Loom & Leaf mattress is right for you. There are two firmness options to choose from, and we found that one may suit certain needs better than the other.
For people who weigh less than 130 pounds, the medium firm option is a good choice for every sleeping position. People in this category often benefit from a softer mattress that conforms to the shape of their bodies. This prevents pressure points from developing. It also keeps the spine aligned, since the mattress responds proportionately to areas like the shoulders and hips. This is especially beneficial for side sleepers in this weight category. The firm Loom & Leaf mattress is worth considering if you are a back or stomach sleeper.
The Loom & Leaf mattress is a good choice for those who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds. The medium firm choice offers excellent support for side sleepers, and good support for back and stomach sleepers. The firm option is highly rated for back and stomach sleepers, but still offers good support for side sleepers.
Those who weigh more than 230 pounds will benefit from the thick profile of the Loom & Leaf mattress. The transition layer and high-density foundation prevent sinking in deeply, which helps keep the spine aligned. Overall, the medium firm choice is good for back and side sleepers. Stomach sleepers may find that their hips and abdomens are better supported by the firm mattress. The firm mattress is also highly rated for side and back sleepers.
Is the Loom & Leaf Mattress Good for Couples?
Overall, the Loom & Leaf mattress is a good choice for couples who value motion isolation and have similar comfort preferences. When we look at how a mattress performs for couples, there are a few key categories we keep in mind. These include motion isolation, ease of movement, edge support, and temperature neutrality.
The Loom & Leaf mattress does a great job of isolating motion. You shouldn’t feel your partner’s movements throughout the night. For couples, this means fewer sleep disturbances. The downside to this is restricted movement. Since memory foam absorbs motion well and returns to its original shape slowly, it can make it difficult to change positions as needed.
The firm option is easier to move around on, though it still compresses easily. In terms of edge support, couples who sleep near the edge of the bed should feel supported. The high-density foam base ensures consistent support.
If you or your partner sleep hot, you may want to consider a hybrid or latex mattress instead. Though the Loom & Leaf mattress performs better than the average foam mattress in terms of temperature neutrality, there is no getting around the fact that memory foam can retain heat.
