Saatva HD is one of the best mattresses for heavy and obese sleepers. There’s very few mattresses out there that incorporate a steel coil innerspring unit, memory foam, and latex foam. It’s just a beast of a mattress designed to accommodate up to 500 lb sleepers.

The easiest words to describe Saatva HD are: supportive, durable, comfortable, and luxurious. It’s basically the same story with Saatva Classic, but to the next level.


This firmness level has been chosen to particularly suit heavy sleepers between 300 and 500 pounds. This firmness prevents excessive sinkage, maintaining the bed’s shape and level of support for larger sleepers. The additional edge support keeps the bed feeling firm even at the edges.

A firm bed resists body impressions and provides more support than a softer mattress. Couples of mixed sizes may find the mattress firmness is too much for lighter sleepers.

Delivery & Returns

The Saatva HD mattress can be purchased via Saatva’s website. Delivery is free for customers in the contiguous US and includes in-home set-up with white glove delivery. There is also an option for mattress and frame removal at no additional charge. If returning the mattress during its trial period or returning on the warranty, a transportation charge of $99 will apply.

Customers will be given a 4-hour window on delivery day and there’s no cancellation fee should a customer need to reschedule their delivery.

Mattress Construction

The mattress has a support core of thick, 12.5-gauge offset innerspring coils that are surrounded by high-density polyfoam around the perimeter for enhanced edge support. The coils sit on a polyfoam base that is 2” thick to further bolster this support core.

In the comfort layer, the mattress has 2” of polyfoam padding inside the cover. Underneath this is 1.5” of zoned Talalay latex that provides softness and bounce while giving a bit of extra cushion to pressure points. A 1.5” memory foam layer with a density of 5 pounds per cubic foot (PCF) sits underneath the latex to increase the contouring offered by the mattress. Another 2” layer of polyfoam rests just on top of the coils to prevent any sagging or excess sink.

On top, Saatva HD has a organic cotton cover. It has a little foam quilted inside, and it just oozes luxury.

Bottom Line

The Saatva HD mattress is the perfect bed for heavy sleepers. Custom designed for sleepers in the 300 pounds range, the mattress offers strong support, a firm surface, and targeted pressure relief on stress points like the hips, joints, and shoulders. The additional edge support also gives it a large sleepable area that’s perfect for larger body types or larger couples.

Lighter sleepers will likely prefer the Saatva flagship mattress. The Saatva HD can be too firm for light sleepers. Mattress support typically works by pushing back as the body sinks into the bed, so a light sleeper may not activate the mattress support systems.

Back and side sleepers will get the most out of the mattress, as it provides excellent support in key pressure point areas. Heavier stomach sleepers may not experience the full effect but should still experience acceptable levels of comfort.

The Saatva HD is also ideal for heavy sleepers looking for a bed with a traditional innerspring feel. Though the Saatva HD is a hybrid mattress, it maintains a classic coil mattress feel, with the level of bounce most people associate with a mattress. This can benefit anyone who finds that alternative mattress options are too different from a traditional mattress.
