Learn how these affordable luxury hybrids compare, including how they performed in our mattress lab.
WinkBeds and Saatva each offer customizable hybrid mattresses designed for every sleeper. Whether you’re a lightweight side sleeper or a plus-size back sleeper, the WinkBed and Saatva Classic mattresses are an excellent choice.
We’ve tested each of these mattresses at our in-house mattress lab, giving us insight into their strengths and weaknesses. In this review, we’ll compare these hybrid beds side-by-side so you can choose the right mattress.

The Saatva comes in two thickness profiles: 11.5” or 14.5”. The WinkBeds, however, only comes in one thickness: 14.5”. A thicker mattress is great for heavy sleepers and those who like extra support. If you weigh less than 230 pounds, you don’t need a thick mattress for comfort, and a thin bed is often easier to get in and out of.
Another difference between these two beds is that the WinkBeds doesn’t offer split king or split California king sizes. Split mattresses are an excellent option for couples who share the bed but are easily woken by movement.
|Thickness||14.5”||11.5” or 14.5”|
|Twin||38” x 75”||38” x 75”|
|Twin XL||38” x 80”||38” x 80”|

|Split King||N/A||76” x 80”|
|California King||72” x 84”||72” x 84”|

The WinkBed is more expensive than the Saatva mattress. For the queen-size WinkBed, you’ll pay $300 more than the Saatva. Additionally, the WinkBed Plus costs $200 more than their other options.
|Split California King||N/A||$1,899|
*The plus size WinkBeds mattress costs $200 more than the listed price for every size.
The WinkBeds mattress is a luxury hybrid mattress made using premium materials. There are four mattress options, including softer, luxury firm, firmer, and plus. The WinkBed plus is designed for sleepers who weigh more than 300 pounds.
The four Winkbeds models vary in construction to meet diverse customer needs. We will note where the construction differs below.
The Saatva hybrid innerspring mattress consists of 5 high-quality layers. By varying the composition of the pillow top, Saatva achieves 3 different firmness options: luxury plush, luxury firm, and firm. Another option for this customizable mattress is varying mattress heights. The loftier mattress (14.5”) has a thicker innerspring transition layer than the thinner (11.5”) mattress.

Both the WinkBeds mattress and Saatva Classic are hybrid beds with multiple firmness options. Each is made using layers of foam and coils to create a sleeping experience great for any sleeping position and body shape. While these luxury mattresses have a lot in common, there are slight differences that make them stand out to different customers.
The Saatva Classic is an affordable hybrid mattress that appeals to people on a budget. It’s softest option is incredibly plush, making it ideal for lightweight side sleepers who need ample give. It excels at keeping the spine aligned, which is critical for sleepers with back pain.
The WinkBeds hybrid mattress comes with free returns and a lifetime warranty. If you’re someone who is nervous about buying a new mattress online, the WinkBed mattress may be a better fit. We also love the plus option for sleepers who weigh over 300 pounds.
When it comes to feel, the WinkBed is noticeably bouncier than the Saatva. For those who like a bouncy innerspring sensation, consider the Winkbed mattress. However, the incredible responsiveness does have its downside: motion transfer. The Saatva Classic performs better when motion isolation is involved. And with split king and California king options, the Saatva is a great fit for couples who share the bed.
