Savvy Rest latex mattress vs Sleeping Organic

Went to look at and lay on various combinations of latex layers at a Savvy Rest store. (Can't stand Tempurpedic any longer). I see on line that Sleeping Organic provides the same combinations for almost $1,500.00 difference. They also have a 45 day grace period to return the mattress and Savvy does no returns at all. Your opinion as to which is better would be greatly appreciated. (Dunlop firm base, Talalay firm center, Talalay soft top layer...both 10 inches high) And finally how do you think Zenhaven stacks up as compared to the others. Thanks so much for your time.

Hi Wlee,

Went to look at and lay on various combinations of latex layers at a Savvy Rest store. (Can't stand Tempurpedic any longer). I see on line that Sleeping Organic provides the same combinations for almost $1,500.00 difference. They also have a 45 day grace period to return the mattress and Savvy does no returns at all. Your opinion as to which is better would be greatly appreciated.


Both the Savvy Rest and the Sleeping Organic use good quality materials. Savvy Rest offers natural Talalay from Radium and GOLS certified Dunlop from Coco Latex. Sleeping Organic offers natural Talalay, natural Dunlop and GOLS certified natural Dunlop. Savvy Rest offers three different comfort designations in their foams (soft, medium and firm) while Sleeping Organic offers four different comfort designations of their foam layers. Both use similar covers. Savvy Rest does allow for a one-layer exchange for a shipping fee within 90 days, and as you mentioned Sleeping Organic does have the 45 night return policy and a layer exchange program within 100 days. While Savvy Rest does use good quality materials, I would make some careful personal value comparisons, as they are in a bit of a higher price range. As I think you may already be aware, Sleeping Organic is a member of this site which means that I think very highly of them and that I believe that they compete well with the best in the industry in terms of their quality, value, service, knowledge, and transparency.

And finally how do you think Zenhaven stacks up as compared to the others.


You can read more about ZenHaven in the simplified choice thread here . It uses good quality materials and is all-Talalay, and is a flippable product with different comforts on each side that is not configurable, so it would be “less like” the other two mattresses you mentioned.

The "value" of a mattress purchase is what is most important and price is just one of many factors that can affect the "value" of a mattress purchase. There isn't a "formula" that can be used to assess or "calculate" the value of a mattress because there are so many different variables and criteria involved that can affect the price of a mattress that can each be more or less important to some people and not to others who may have completely different criteria or definitions of "value". The value of a mattress purchase is also relative to how a mattress compares to the other finalists you are considering. There is more about the 3 most important parts of the "value" of a mattress purchase in post #13 here which can help you make more meaningful quality/value comparisons.

Hi Wlee,

Sleeping Organic rates their X-firm Dunlop at D95-100, 45+ ILD. Savvy Rest doesn't share exact densities and ILDs, but in the past they have listed their firm natural Dunlop at a 40+ ILD.

Thx for getting back to me so quickly...One (I hope) last question. Savvy Rest said not to use a bunky board over our slatted platform which has no center strut but rather a coir mat if I wanted for air circulation. However, Sleeping Organic said a bunky board was fine. Just trying to make sure I understand everything since we are feeling that the price from Sleeping organic is over a $1000.00 savings.

Hi Wlee,

A Bunkie board often has a cardboard deck on top of the wood pallet, and this would not promote air circulation. A coir bed rug would. If you're adding the Bunkie board for increasing the structure and support of your slatted bed set, that is a different matter from increasing air circulation, and if you have a large span of slats (full size or larger) without center reinforcement, you'd probably want to address that independently of the Bunkie board or coir bed rug. Placing a Bunkie board on top of a slat network without proper center reinforcement will still end up with sag over time, and of course the coir bed rug is not meant to change support characteristics much, but it can be helpful if slat spacing is a bit larger than you'd desire. So in the end it comes down to what actually you're attempting to address here, and then making sure that you're not doing anything that would void the warranty from your manufacturer.

so......there is no way to add a center strut to my modern queen platform bed .
Would a bunkie board with a coir bed matt over it for circulation suffice?

Hi Wlee,

Without knowing the configuration of your bed, I couldn't comment upon what configuration would be the best. If there is sag in the slats, then placing a Bunkie board on top of that will eventually sag as well. The coir bed rug on top of that will allow for extra air circulation - that is true.

If you like you can post photos of the interior construction of your platform bed and maybe this will help explain what exactly you are attempting to accomplish, and I can offer better advice.
