Now you can see who the Solaire suits and who should give it a swerve, let’s explore how this airbed mattress is made.
- Comfort Layers
- Support Layers
The cover of the Saatva Solaire comes in the form of a deeply quilted pillow top.
Thickly padded with organic cotton, this mattress is remarkably comfy as well as breathable. The organic trim – it’s an attractive gold damask – finishes this air bed mattress wonderfully.
A zoned layer of Talalay latex in the comfort layers of the Saatva Solaire ensures that the sleeping surface is both cool and responsive. The 5 distinct zones intelligently deliver optimum pressure relief along your spinal column.
Beneath this layer comes some Certi-PUR memory foam that’s infused with gel and contains no toxic chemicals at all. With this type of memory foam layered in, both pressure relief and proper spinal alignment are encouraged.
The crowning glory in the comfort layers comes in the form of a proprietary moisture barrier. This is designed to inhibit bacterial growth so your mattress stays spotless, and comfy, and will last for longer.
On the Saatva Solaire, the support layer’s core contains 50 vulcanized air chambers. This leads to ample air support in all directions and you’ll notice no sagging or low spots.
All around these air chambers is a power edge enclosure. This innovation helps keep the mattress firmer at the edges. It also contains the air inflator system so the pumps and hoses you use to fine-tune those firmness settings are hidden out of sight.
Firmness and Feel
The key selling point of the Saatva Solaire is the way you can easily tweak the firmness settings.
Firmness can be fine-tuned all the way from a very soft 3 to a firm 7 on the average firmness scale. The remote control allows you to manipulate in increments of milliliters of mercury just the way blood pressure is measured.
Thanks to the pillow top in place, this mattress feels plush whatever firmness setting you choose.
With such a degree of adjustability, you should be able to find a firm setting that suits you regardless of your size and sleeping position.
All models in the Saatva Solaire line stand 13.5 inches tall making this a high profile mattress. If you struggle to get in and out of bed, this should make things easier for you.
Also, the higher profile is essential considering what’s packed into the innards of this mattress.
Now, if you’re looking for a great air bed mattress, you might have struggled to find anything that suits both you and your sleeping partner. Well, the Saatva Solaire puts an end to your search and gives you a comfortable and supportive mattress that’s also completely adjustable in terms of firmness. This mattress is very similar to the Serta Mattress.
Build quality is as you would expect from the inimitable Saatva. If you live in New York, why not pass by the new Saatva showroom so you can try this mattress before you buy. There’s then nothing stopping you from picking up your Solaire online if you prefer to shop that way.
