Comparing Construction (Materials & Quality)

Saatva Construction

This is a hybrid construction with two coil units and memory foam materials. This product ships ready-to-go and will not be compressed. Free White Glove delivery service is available so you won’t need to worry about the set-up of your new bed.

This bed features a 3-inch Euro Top treated with antibacterial GuardinⓇ. This mattress comes in 14.5-inch and 11.5-inch heights. Differences between these two versions will be noted in the construction break down below.

saatva layers image
  • The top layer holds a .5-inch Lumbar Support Enhancement. This utilizes memory foam and wires to promote enhanced support and proper spinal alignment.
  • The second layer contains a 4-inch Individually Wrapped Coil system. Foam casing is used to dampen vibration and control motion transfer. The coils should react individually to movement and weight to provide support or pressure relief as needed.
  • The base layer is comprised of a 7-inch Steel Coil Base Support. Recycled steel is tempered to create a base that should provide stability to the upper materials. The 11.5-inch version of this item contains a system that utilizes fewer turns, resulting in a foundation layer at an estimated 4 inches in height.
  • The perimeter holds a Dual Perimeter Edge Support that should promote consistency throughout the entire sleep surface. This is a reinforced foam system located around the upper coil system.

Brooklyn Aurora Construction

layers of brooklyn bedding aurora
  • The top layer is Copper Gel Energex™ With TitanCool™ at 1.5 inches thick. This should further prevent overheating and provide soft pressure relief.
  • The second layer holds the proprietary TitanFlex™ at 2 inches thick. This proprietary material is designed to adapt to the sleeper’s weight and should provide pressure relief or support as needed.
  • The third layer contains a 1-inch thick Swirl Visco-Elastic Memory Foam. This deeper material should promote body-conforming pressure relief for those who may sink through the upper layers. This should also act as a transition between the comfort foams and the support beneath them.
  • The fourth layer holds 8-inch Quantum Edge™ Encased Coils. These individually pocketed, foam-encased coils are meant to provide pressure relief, motion control, and enhanced edge support.
  • The final layer consists of a Base Support Foam that is an inch thick. This should further minimize movement in the support system above and provide stability for the rest of the materials.

Comparing Firmness (Support & Feel)

Our comfort (firmness) scale has been used to determine the feel of each bed. This scale uses 1 as the absolute softest and 10 as incredibly firm.

Saatva’s product has a 6 out of 10. This should feel like a true Medium or Medium-Firm to most sleepers. All sleep types should be able to enjoy this comfort level.

The Aurora’s Medium option sits at a 5 on this scale, which should feel like a true Medium to most shoppers. The Soft comes in at a 3 and the Firm is at a 7 on this scale. People of any position preference should find an option that suits them.

Comparing Sinkage and Bounce

Both brands should offer a gentle cradle with plenty of bounce. The materials in both products should respond quickly, allowing them to reshape easily. Either bed should work well for combination-sleepers as these features should promote easy repositioning.

Comparing Motion Transfer

Both products may present moderate motion transfer as coil systems tend to allow more vibration than all-foam constructions. Both beds utilize individually pocketed coils encased in foam to help reduce motion transfer. Most shoppers do not consider motion control to be a deciding factor in choosing a new and perfect mattress for them.

Comparing Edge Support

Both brands should provide enhanced edge support thanks to their reinforced perimeter designs. Shoppers should notice minimal compression when lying at the edge, with a deeper compression when sitting. This should help to provide stability throughout the mattress, extending the usable sleep surface, which should be ideal to co-sleepers.

Should I Buy Saatva or Brooklyn Aurora?

Either brand should work well for most position preferences, but there may be a few key differences that may appeal to you. Read our suggestions below to see how each compares and who they may work best for.

We Would Recommend Buying Saatva if You are Looking for:

  • An innerspring feel. This mattress features a coil-on-coil design, that should provide enhanced support, bounce, and airflow. The upper coil system is individually wrapped to help reduce motion transfer.
  • Multiple comfort options. Buyers may choose between Plush Soft, Luxury Firm, or Firm modles. There is also a thicker 14.5-inch or a sleek 11.5-inch mattress available to create the aesthetic that works best for shoppers.
  • Antibacterial properties. The cover of this product has been treated with antimicrobial properties to promote a cleaner sleep.

We Would Recommend Buying Brooklyn Aurora if You are Looking for:

  • Multiple comfort options. This item is available in Soft, Medium, and Firm options so back, stomach, and side sleepers can find the comfort level that provides them with just the right amounts of pressure relief and support.
  • A hands-on experience. Customers may check out the Aurora before buying it through showrooms featuring Brooklyn Bedding’s products.
  • Cooling properties. Gels, copper, and individually pocketed coils should keep shoppers from overheating as they lie on this mattress.

Final Thoughts


If you’re looking for a hybrid with a gentle cradle and good bounce, either of these options should be a great fit for you.

Consider Saatva if you like an innerspring feel, multiple comfort and height options, and antibacterial properties. If multiple comfort feels and cooling technology is more your speed, check out the Aurora by Brooklyn Bedding.

I think we’re all nerds, but I’m probably the biggest nerd in the group. Put me nose deep in a spreadsheet and I'll start smiling.

I love to travel, hang out with positive people, and love cycling when I find the time!

My hope is that everyone who visits our site will walk away with a fresh perspective. I think too many people in society downplay the importance of sleep. In my opinion, it’s the difference between an average life and an amazing one.
