Major Pros of the Loom & Leaf Mattress

  1. Odourless: you won’t have to bear with the strong “off-gassing” typically associated with a new mattress purchase as the L&L mattress is made to stay odour-free straight from the neat packaging.
  2. Unshrinked Stable Wrapping: unpacking the L&L mattress will not be a contorted activity with potential contraptions that would normally come with a heavy high-density 5-pound mattress, whether you’re opening it solely or with a helping hand.
  3. Organic Cotton Quilt: inclusiveprotective mattress covering.
  4. Adjustable Base Mattress Compatibility: The Loom & Leaf mattress is designed to perfectly fit and align for complementary use with the proprietary L&L LinealTM Adjustable Mattress Base, also available as a custom option – inclusive of shipping together with the mattress.
  5. Last but not least, it’s from Saatva, a pioneer in the mattress industry
  6. Made in the USA
  7. 15 Year Warranty

Major Cons of the Loom & Leaf Mattress

  1. It’s pricey. A queen sized mattress costs almost $1500. There are plenty of cheaper, unbranded yet high-quality mattresses for half that price. You can find such mattresses on Amazon.com, Walmart.com, Overstock.com etc. etc. Just read the customer reviews, look at the mattress ratings and decide if that would be the right mattress for your needs!

  2. It’s only available at 12″ of thickness. This won’t work for those who are looking for ‘slim’ 6-10 inch mattresses
  3. The Loom and Leaf memory foam mattress is not available as a ‘soft’ firmness. Of course, we don’t recommend too soft a mattress for everyday use.

What makes the Loom & Leaf (L&L) Mattress a Good Comforter?

Having identified or a better idea of what’s been eating you, you need to understand the plate on which you should go an offing….because neglecting that on which a very good portion of your life and times is “spent” on would be a grievous mistake with grave outcomes. To dedicate so much of your life and times (not forgetting money and energy!) on your waking life while utterly neglecting your sleeping life would be a blind oversight on your part…

So it should not cause you to raise an alarm at the sighting of an L&L Mattress price tag, dancing closer to the dollar thousands than the hundreds…. How much do you spend on luxury and other “waking comforts” which for some uncanny reason do not accommodate your ultimate “sleeping comfort”? Just a quick reminder, according to Sleep Science, sleep deprivation or sleep loss is actually a chronic lifestyle disease from which about 30 to 50% of the general American population suffers from[1]. Since numbers don’t lie, before the kettle calls the pot black, here are some other stark staggering numbers which make the fairly and reasonably priced Loom & Leaf Mattress pale in contrast to the medical costs of a poor sleep lifestyle and all the associated symptoms…

Loom & Leaf Mattress Price by Size

  • Twin Size ~ $850
  • Twin XL ~ $1000
  • Full Size ~ $1,400
  • Queen Size ~ $1,500
  • King Size ~ $1,800
  • California King Size ~ $1,800

Loom & Leaf Mattress Design Cutting-edge Technology

There couldn’t be a redder flag if you wake up with symptoms that were not felt or present before, couldn’t be a surer sign if waking up leaves you feeling much worse than you did before going to sleep. A change or the necessity to change your mattress and pillow is not rocket science, but the technology behind an ideal meticulously designed one is no mean feat either. Scientific studies have gone to prove what vital role a change in sleeping arrangements and sleep lifestyle could play in improving and alleviating your post-sleep wake-up cycle symptoms[2]. Key concerns being what and how the following impact cervical and thoracic pain, as well as spinal alignment:

  • changing the sleeping position,
  • changing the mattress and pillow.

This effect on what’s known as the cervico-thoracic spinal pain is further elucidated in another scientific study which further confirmed that the sleeping position (sleep posture) was a main evaluation point in clinical assessments of pathological symptoms in both the sleep and wake cycles[3]. These include:

  • nocturnal disruption (Sleep cycle)
  • musculo-skeletal distubance (Wake cycle)

Multiple layers of the Loom and Leaf Mattress
