For those of us who can't sleep without a plush pillowtop or a firm-as-a-board surface, it's nerve-wracking to shell out for a nontoxic mattress that might not hit that certain sweet spot. Thankfully, luxury mattress brands have been making big strides in improving mattress materials without sacrificing comfort. Our WinkBeds vs. Saatva comparison will tell you everything you need to know about these two companies and which one you should try for yourself. 

While both have several certifications in mattress safety standards, one does shine a bit brighter in that department. Based on sustainability, sleeping positions, and a series of tests, we set out to identify who would benefit most from which mattress.

What is WinkBeds?

WinkBeds is an online company creating luxury hybrid mattresses, bed frames, pillows, sheets, and mattress protectors. All its products are all handmade in the United States and sold at relatively affordably prices. The hybrid mattress family holds a CertiPUR-US certification, which is the bare minimum of safety standards. Only the brand's latest model, the EcoCloud, is truly eco-conscious. It has a 100% all-natural latex and innerspring hybrid design and boasts a handful of certifications such as Global Organic Textile Standard, OEKO-TEX, and Rainforest Alliance. If nontoxic materials are your top priority, but you're seeking a cloudlike feel, you'll want to check out the EcoCloud.

WinkBeds mattresses arrive very quickly, within three to five business days. The brand ships its mattresses compressed and rolled in a box—and you'll be able to sleep on it the day it arrives! Just give the mattress a few hours to expand into its full form.

What is Saatva?

A luxury nontoxic mattress company with plenty of safety certifications to boot, Saatva is one of the best nontoxic mattress brands you can find. As a member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, Saatva's materials are GOLS-certified organic, GREENGUARD GOLD, eco-INSTITUT certified, and plant-based. As for manufacturing processes, the brand's plants all operate on solar power. Plus, shipping and delivery processes are designed to minimize Saatva's carbon footprint.

Clearly, Saatva earns points for being sustainable and safe—but something that makes the brand scream "luxury" is its free white glove delivery service. Once you place your order, the mattress will be delivered straight to your home and set up for you. The delivery team will even remove your old mattress if you choose that option upon checkout.

How to choose between WinkBeds vs. Saatva

To learn which WinkBeds or Saatva mattress will best suit your sleep style and preferences, here are a couple of factors to consider:

Trial period: WinkBeds has a modest 30-night trial. If you don't love the mattress, WinkBeds will pick it up for free within the first 30 days. For up to 120 nights, the brand will give you 50% off a new mattress. With Saatva's generous 365-night trial, you have a full year to decide if you like the mattress. If you decide to return it within that time frame, you'll get a full refund (minus a $99 pick-up fee). If you return it in the first 45 days, the brand will waive the fee.

Firmness: Mattress comfort is subjective, and your body size and sleep position will determine how firm a mattress feels and how well it will keep your spine aligned. WinkBeds and Saatva both offer mattresses with a range of firmness levels. Some, like the Saatva Solaire, even have adjustable firmness.

Materials: When it comes to materials and certifications, Saatva and WinkBeds materials aren't quite created equal. Saatva is certified organic and safe by GOLS, GREENGUARD GOLD, and eco-INSTITUT and uses biodegradable materials. WinkBeds, on the other hand, only has one mattress in its suite (the EcoCloud) that goes beyond the basic CertiPUR-US certification. The EcoCloud passes our sustainability standards with flying colors.

The original WinkBed mattress is a hybrid design with multiple firmness options to choose from. It’s a top choice for stomach sleepers of all sizes. For larger-bodied people, this mattress comes in “firmer” and “plus," designed to support sleepers with an extra layer of zoned support latex foam and more edge support coils.

This natural latex hybrid mattress is supportive enough for back, stomach, and combination sleepers. It offers above-average temperature regulation in a luxury, eco-friendly design. Thanks to an innerspring base, perforated latex foam, and moisture-wicking wool pillow top, you’ll sleep cool throughout the night.

Note, this mattress is on the firmer side. Latex has a buoyant feel, which can be a deterrent for those who prefer a cloud-like mattress.

If you’re looking for a new mattress in hopes of relieving chronic back pain, you’re in luck. The WinkBed EcoCloud is a hybrid design that eliminates pressure on the joints and back by combining the support of coils with the pressure relief of Talalay latex. It has multiple zones that provide targeted weight distribution for added pressure relief.

Mindbodygreen’s product testers found this mattress to be a true medium, which feels like a 5 out of 10 on a firmness scale. We mainly recommend this mattress for side sleepers who love the feeling of slightly sinking into a cloudlike mattress and for those who could benefit from pressure relief. Another perk? The mattress’ Talalay latex, organic cotton, and all-natural sheep wool are super cooling and breathable.
