Loom And Leaf Relaxed Firm Vs Firm Comparison, Reviews

Loom & Leaf Mattress

Loom and Leaf is a product of Saatva Mattress that offers you natural mattresses that is not only supportive, comfortable and durable but is also healthy. The best-sellers of Loom and Leaf are its Relaxed Firm and Firm Mattress. So we choose to compare them both. Here is a breakdown of Loom and Leaf Relaxed Firm Vs Firm.

Why should you choose Loom and Leaf?

The main selling point of Loom and Leaf is they use natural ingredients. There are only a few chemicals and non-renewable materials as possible as they can. In fact, they brand themselves as a “healthy, green, memory foam mattress.”

Another predominant feature of Loom and Leaf is the 2 firmness levels. Usually, many online mattress brands offer one mattress suitable for everyone’s needs. Offering 2 firmness levels appealed to every sleeper (as claimed in many Loom & Leaf bed reviews) we have gone through.

Materials used

Both ‘firm’ and ‘relaxed firm’ are made of the same materials. Traditional memory foam mattresses come with chemicals that you breath every night.

All Loom and Leaf mattress foams are CertiPUR-US certified. For those who are not aware, CertiPUR-US is an independent body that awards certification to foams that don’t use harmful toxins such as formaldehyde, VOCs, and other heavy metals.

Loom and Leaf mattress is shipped in a ‘stable state’. This means that they are not rolled up or compressed in a tight plastic bag. This is why they don’t release any chemical smell in the home.

Loom and Leaf ensure that you have a better sleeping environment. Hence, they do not use synthetic flame retardant on their mattress covers. In fact, they use a natural flame barrier that is made of thistles.

Another advantage of Loom and leaf is that unlike traditional memory foam mattresses that tends to sleep hot, this mattress doesn’t let you sleep hot. The cooling gels in the memory foam keep you cool by wicking away excess moisture from the body.

How do Loom and Leaf mattresses keep you cool?

Loom and Leaf employ the patented gel-on-gel design that keeps you cool. This gel pad is laminated into the lumbar region. The cooling gel is typically used in hospitals to treat burn victims.

The top layer of foam has gel swirled into it when it is made. It is then passed through a convoluting machine to create air channels beneath it.

If you check the Loom and Leaf mattress Reddit reviews (as well other reviews available on other sites), they will confirm the fact that it works wonders in keeping you cool and dry.

Similar features of Loom And Leaf Relaxed Firm Vs Firm

  • The mattress cover is made from organic, US-grown cotton with an extra ½” of extra padding sewn in it. The cover adds a touch of luxury to the overall mattress feel. (In Loom and Leaf Firm, the cover is pulled tighter which compresses the foam inside a bit more).
  • Loom and leaf mattresses come with cooling gel panel that gives you an added element of support.
  • Both Relaxed Firm and Firm comes with gel-infused memory foam that wicks away the sweat and moisture while keeping you cool at night. The foam layer looks like egg-shell crust that enhances the air flow in-between the layers.
  • The 2.5” layer of 5lbs visco-elastic memory foam adds a comfortable feel.
  • The transitional layer of 2” foam is what makes a difference in the Loom and Leaf Relaxed Firm Vs Firm.
  • Last is the 5.5” base layer that forms a thick foundation that acts as a sturdy base for the whole mattress.

Loom and Leaf mattresses work on any foundation – adjustable base, bed frames etc.

Key Differences

As mentioned above, the transitional layer has a crucial role in differentiating the ‘Relaxed Firm’ from the ‘Firm’. This transitional layer creates a buffer between the upper sections of the mattress and the base layer.

In the Loom & Leaf “Firm” mattress, this layer is much denser. In fact, it is more rigid unlike the “Relaxed Firm”. In spite of the mattress 5” underneath the sleeping surface, it plays an important role in the overall feel of the mattress.

Here is a table format so that you can view all the features in one go.
