Loom and Leaf Mattress Review
Who are Loom and Leaf mattresses for?
- If you are looking for a reasonably-priced all-foam mattress, but don’t want to forego luxury.
- If you like memory foam – and even if you don’t – the balanced feel and moderate responsiveness of the mattress will gain favor in both camps.
- Petite and average-weight people across all sleeping positions. If you are heavy and have an all-foam mattress in mind for your next bed, this is one of the better options for you.
- If you like the idea of a memory foam mattress with cooling features built into the design.
- If you want a taller all-foam mattress than what’s commonly available.
- If you would rather have a mattress arrive in full at your door with free white-glove delivery.
Who won’t love the Loom and Leaf mattress?
- If you are shopping on a budget. While Loom and Leaf is affordable for the level of quality you receive, it is not a budget bed.
- If you have a particular dislike for memory foam. Its balanced foam feel will work for most people but, if foam just isn’t for you, there are some qualities of the bed you may not like.
- If free returns is important to you, there is a fee for returning a Loom and Leaf mattress.
Loom and Leaf company policy
Loom and Leaf is the memory foam mattress available from Saatva – an almost household name in the world of mattresses. Saatva is a mattress powerhouse and is also one of America’s top retailers.
Saatva was founded in 2011 and combined Ron Rudzon’s in-depth knowledge of the furniture world with the entrepreneurial savvy of Ricky Joshi. Together, the two have shaken up what it is to buy mattresses online to give them a relatively unique offering and a position as one of the best reviewed mattress companies in the country. Loom and Leaf was added to the Saatva range in 2016.
Saatva also donates over 250 mattresses to those in need every year and doing good forms an indelible part of their business model. This is both social and environmental They also have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
Their mattresses are made to order in the United States made from American-sourced, eco-friendly foams. These foams are made using renewable materials wherever possible and are environmentally conscious in their construction and emissions. They are also focused on minimizing travel between their factories and their customers’ homes and utilize solar power in their flagship factory.
Shipping: The Loom and Leaf shipping process is different to other online mattress stores. They ship throughout the contiguous United States, as well as Ontario and Western Canada. Orders can be delivered to Hawaii and Alaska through third-party freight forwarders. White glove delivery is free with all orders and this includes old mattress removal. You will receive a call from them the day before delivery for them to schedule your four-hour delivery window.
Payment accepted, financing: Loom and Leaf has financing options available through Klarna. When you select Klarna as your payment option at checkout, you will get an instant decision on your application.
Returns and refund: In offering a premium service like white-glove delivery on their mattresses, it is perhaps unsurprising that there will be a fee of $99 to return your mattress.
Sleep trial period: The Loom and Leaf sleep trial period is 120 nights – slightly higher than average for other online mattress brands.
Warranties: Loom and Leaf mattresses come with a 15-year warranty which, again, clocks in higher than most other brands.
Packaging and unpacking: The packaging and unpacking of the Loom and Leaf is not going to be any bother for you. With that free white-glove delivery, your mattress will be set up and your old mattress and all the packaging removed, which is a great perk. The Loom and Leaf is also not your standard bed-in-a-box mattress. It isn’t compressed and rolled and will arrive full-sized in a truck.
Smell (off-gassing), harmful chemicals: While Loom and Leaf claims their mattresses do not off-gas, you may notice a slight smell on unboxing. In our opinion, this is less imposing than with compressed mattress brands. How much it will bother you depends on your sensitivity to these things, so you may want to keep your bedroom well-ventilated to keep the effect of any off-gassing to a minimum.

Loom and Leaf measurements and pricing
Loom and Leaf mattress performance
Who doesn’t love a bit of luxury? If you are shopping for an all-foam mattress, but would like something a little special, your search may begin and end with Loom & Leaf. From how this mattress arrives at your door to the feel and construction of the bed, you’re getting something that is a notch above the rest.
It’s got a lush pillowtop with an organic cotton cover, which just feels great from the moment you lie on it. As you put your weight on the mattress, you start to get the contouring and support from the foam layers below. The cooling zone and eco-friendly proprietary foams are added perks in the overall construction of the bed. With two firmness levels, this accommodating mattress will work for almost all sleeping preferences.
Construction layers and materials used
Loom and Leaf Mattress
The Loom and Leaf is a 12-inch mattress which has six inches of high-density foam at its base which supports the foam layers above. On top of this is two inches of transitional foam which is a conduit between the support and comfort layers. Next up are combination layers – three inches of five-pound viscoelastic foam with cooling gel. The top layer is a quilted organic cotton knit top quilted with a foam layer. This is treated with their thistle flame retardant, which is 100% natural.
- Organic cotton cover, quilted with 5/8” of memory foam
- 3" Five-pound viscoelastic foam with cooling gel
- 2" Transitional foam
Loom and Leaf mattress firmness
The feel of every mattress will depend on your body type, with petite people experiencing a slant on the firmer side and heavier people finding mattresses that bit softer.
The Loom & Leaf Mattress comes in two firmness options: the relaxed firm and the firm. If you are of about average weight, the relaxed firm is going to have a medium-firm feel. This is in that middle range to cater for all sleeping types. The firm, on the other hand, is a true firm. This means support – and lots of it – for back and stomach sleepers.
If you are looking for a soft mattress, you won’t find it here – but we think most people will find the relaxed firm model a comfy fit across all positions.
MATTRESS FIRMNESS SCALE
|Soft||Medium Soft||Medium||Medium Firm||Firm|
Loom & Leaf
Sleep position, pressure relief and body type
The Loom and Leaf relaxed firm model is hands-down the best option for side sleepers, with sufficient pressure relief from the memory foam layers to comfortably cushion shoulders and hips in this position. The firm model is aimed at the back and stomach sleepers out there for one big reason: support. This true firm bed will keep you well-aligned if you primarily sleep on your back or stomach.
If you are a strict back sleeper, the firm Loom and Leaf will perform a little better for you. The firmness of this mattress means support in this position, which mitigates the chance of pain down the line from incorrect alignment. If you share a mattress with a side sleeper or you simply want a mattress which is slightly softer (without being soft), the relaxed firm is well-suited to back sleepers too.
If you are a strict side sleeper with an average frame, the relaxed firm is hands down the best option for you. The memory foam layers provide sufficient pressure relief to comfortably cushion shoulders and hips in this position and most side sleepers will be very happy on this model.
As with back sleepers above, the firm mattress will be the better option if you spend most of the night on your stomach. This sleeping position demands firmness for correct alignment and the firm model provides adequate support for you to comfortably sleep on your belly. Again, if you are sharing a mattress with a side sleeper or want a slightly softer feeling mattress than a true firm, the relaxed firm should work for most stomach sleepers too.
The relaxed firm is a great choice for combination sleepers because of the balance of pressure relief and support. If you spend most or part of the night on your side, you’ll appreciate that added bit of pressure relief.
While we would mostly recommend a hybrid mattress for heavier people, the Loom and Leaf is one of the better performing all-foam mattresses for heavy people. Remember that you may find these mattresses a little softer than the profile we have given them above, but similar rules apply. If you are a back or stomach sleeper and you have set your mind on Loom and Leaf, the firmer the better. If you are a side sleeper or combination sleeper in the heavier weight category, you may find that even the firm option provides enough pressure relief as you sink into the mattress.
The more petite you are, the firmer these mattresses may feel – so, if you are on the market for something softer, you might want to shop around a bit. If you are a side sleeper, this is going to be especially important and we would urge you to stick with the relaxed firm model if you are keen to give Loom and Leaf a try – but remember that it is going to come in firmer than a medium-firm.
Loom and Leaf edge support
The edge support on Loom and Leaf mattresses is about the same as it is on most all-foam mattresses. This is only really going to come into play if you are sharing a smaller sized bed or if you migrate to the perimeter of the bed at night. Most people will find the level of edge support is just fine.
Loom and Leaf mattress temperature regulation
The Loom and Leaf is a temperature neutral mattress. Unless you sleep hot and have special requirements around cooling, you should be comfortable through the night on the Loom and Leaf.
If you are interested in the cooling features built into the design of the mattress, the designers at Saatva have focused on cooling in a few different ways. It starts with the organic cotton cover. Cotton is a naturally breathable material, which helps with cooling. Under this is a cooling gel panel which is zoned in the center third of the mattress. The viscoelastic foam layer has swirling gel for heat distribution and it is infused with a phase change material to conduct heat away from the body. It also has what they call ‘pin core design for ventilation and airflow.

Motion isolation and noise
All-foam mattresses are typically very good at isolating motion and the Loom and Leaf is no exception. If you are a light sleeper or if your partner is restless during the night, this is a great feature. If you are sensitive to sound, very little sound was detected as weight was applied to the mattress.
Is Loom and Leaf suitable for couples and sex?
The excellent motion isolation and soundlessness of the Loom and Leaf mattress are great properties for couples. The edge support, while it is not the best on the market, will also work for most couples in even smaller sized beds which is an added perk if you are sharing a bed.
When it comes to sex, it is widely accepted that bouncy, responsive mattresses are better for changing position and movement during sex. The pillowtop cover on the Loom and Leaf mattress does offer some responsiveness but, ultimately, the sinking memory foam feeling makes it a bit slow on this front. While some people appreciate this quality for a bit of traction, we wouldn’t rank the Loom and Leaf near the top for its performance for sex.
Durability and longevity
The Loom and Leaf was only launched in 2016 which makes reporting on its long-term durability a work in progress. That said, these mattresses are made to premium quality standards and we believe this will have an impact on longevity. With the quality of the foams and construction, we anticipate these mattresses may outlast the average lifespan of a mattress – probably up to about ten years. They also offer a longer than average warranty, which is a commitment to quality.
However, foam will age with use and the rate at which this happens depends on a few different features. Rotating your mattress regularly can help and, if you are petite or have an average-sized frame, this can slow the rate of foam wear and deterioration.
Saatva recommends purchasing their entire system for the ideal mattress setup. If this is within your budget, it might be something to consider, but the Loom and Leaf mattress is compatible with many other foundations too.
COMPATIBLE WITH THESE BED BASES
* Recommended no more than 4 inches apart with a strong center support
Loom and Leaf mattress complaints
Loom and Leaf has accumulated a mountain of positive online reviews, but human experience is always diverse and so we did some searching to find out what complaints people had about the mattress. However, one thing which is apparent from almost all the complaints is that the customer service is exceptional, which is always reassuring.
- The mattress was too firm. These complaints were about the relaxed firm and firm models, so this is something to keep in mind if you prefer a softer feeling mattress.
- We came across some complaints around the durability of the mattress, with a few people reporting sagging and deterioration. Some heavy individuals emphasize that all-foam mattresses have not been a good fit for them.
Our final verdict: Do we recommend the Loom & Leaf mattress brand?
Loom and Leaf isn’t your run of the mill all-foam mattress. It’s a cut above the rest and, for that, it gets our stamp of approval. Shopping for a mattress is an investment in sleep and sleep quality which will have an impact on so many different elements of your life, which is why we recommend opting for a bit of luxury if it is within your means. Loom and Leaf really has produced a top-tier all-foam mattress at a relatively affordable price, which is a promising choice for shoppers.
Most people on the market for a memory foam mattress will find the Loom and Leaf mattress a comfortable choice. If you are heavy, an all-foam mattress would not be our first choice for you – but this is one of your best choices if you have your heart set on foam. If you are a side sleeper (and a very petite side sleeper) and you are looking for a soft bed with loads of pressure relief, take the time to research the best mattresses for side sleepers before you make your final decision.
Ultimately, however, you’re getting something special when you order a Loom and Leaf mattress. While there are always exceptions to the general rule, it is a good match for most sleepers, which makes it an exciting prospect for foam bed buyers.
Loom and Leaf is a luxury all-foam mattress. It is the all-foam mattress offering from Saatva, working to their quality benchmarks. While the performance of Loom and Leaf will ultimately depend on your sleeping preferences, this premium all-foam mattress performs very well across the board.
While a Loom and Leaf mattress is not the most affordable mattress on the market, it is reasonably priced for the quality you receive. This comes down to the eco-friendly proprietary foams, the different cooling features, and the quilted cover with organic cotton which will immediately catch your eye.
