Leesa Mattress Review

The great debate in the world of sleep products boils down to finding the formula for the perfect sleep space. Many people disagree on whether your sleep environment should be warm or cool, soft or supportive, coil or memory foam. The truth is, there isn’t necessarily a right or wrong answer, since it’s all based on personal need and a lot of opinion. However, there are definitely products made by manufacturers who take the initiative to try and please as many people as possible. The Leesa mattress has been created with such an endeavor in mind, blending comfort with support and offering a sleep environment that is flexible with temperature regulation.

Product Review


Casper Perfect Mattress

The Leesa mattress was designed with adaptability in mind. Most manufacturers provide multiple models to meet the needs of the consumer, so there are options for those who sleep on their stomachs versus their backs or sides, as well as different levels of firmness for different sleeping styles. To negate the need to choose one specific feel, especially if you switch up your sleep positions during the night, this product offers the ability to adapt to your needs with craftsmanship that blends several materials for ultimate comfort.

While the Leesa mattress is intended to cater to the majority, I wouldn’t recommend it for everyone. If you’re determined that nothing will ever beat a spring form mattress, you won’t be swayed by the appeal of this product. If you’re looking for a plush softness that you can sink deep into, you probably want to look somewhere else.

On the other hand, if you tend to sleep in multiple positions and need to trust in comfort and support for every position, you’ll love this mattress. If you tend to sleep hot, you’ll love that this particular mattress has enough airflow to keep you cool through the night. You’ll also be pleased if you like a good warranty and a good value, since you get both with the Leesa.

PROS

  • Reasonably priced with a great warranty to back the product
  • Cooling properties for a more comfortable sleep environment
  • 100 Day Trial
  • Adaptable in firmness and support

CONS

  • Online only product

Features & Benefits

With the Leesa mattress, you can rest assured that there are no hidden products in the construction, and you get a chance to make sure you are completely satisfied, protecting your initial investment. It’s manufactured completely in the United States, so the product is domestic. The mattress also has a great cover design, for those who are interested in the look of the product as much of the feel. Let’s take a look at some of the individual features that make this product such a great option to consider.

Thickness

With so many pillow top mattresses being deep, the fact that the Leesa is only 10 inches thick might seem like it’s too thin by comparison. However, the various layers (3 layers of different types of foam discussed below) are constructed to give you the right amount of support, pressure relief, contouring, and just enough softness to make it a great sleep.

On top of all of this, you can also feel good in knowing that, with the Leesa mattress, you are part of a greater social good. For every ten mattresses the company sells, they donate one to a shelter, assuring that everyone has a comfortable place to rest their heads.

Material

There are no coils in this product, which might be a deal breaker for traditionalists. But the three layers of foam perform as well as or better than the average innerspring mattress.

  • The foundation layer consists of high density support foam, measuring 6 inches thick. It provides the base and supports the rest of the mattress to avoid any sagging or discomfort due to lack of a hard base.
  • The middle layer creates the basis of your contouring and is structured from 2 inches of memory foam. This is the part of the mattress that allows for the relief of pressure at key points in your body while also letting the mattress conform to any sleep position you choose while still offering contoured support.
  • The top layer might be the most unique feature of the Leesa mattress. It is 2 inches of Avena foam. This material is far different from what other manufacturers use. It’s polyurethane, though it acts more like latex in the way it moves. It is cooler and more durable than latex or even standard memory foam, and it has a bit of a sprig to it that allows just the right amount of bounce without causing discomfort when you shift during the night. Overall, it is fully responsive to your body position and your needs, lending to the adaptability of this product.

Unlike a standard memory foam mattress, the de-gassing process is quick, and the smell upon first opening the product is minimal. You can expect to open it in the morning, set it up, and have it ready for a sheet so you can sleep on it by the time you go to bed. If there is any remaining odor, it will be so light that it doesn’t disturb your sleep.

In addition, you’ll be able to move easier during the night. While standard memory foam contours nicely to your body, it also prevents the comfort and ease of shifting, since it takes several minutes for the foam to readjust to your new position. The Avena foam layer has more spring, which means you can turn over and have it react instantly to your new position. It also means you won’t have to flip your mattress as much, if at all.?

Cooling Technology

Because the layer you sleep on is constructed from Avena foam (made of polyurethane rather than latex or standard memory foam), you’ll find that it sleeps much cooler than the average mattress. The material is breathable and allows for airflow to keep the mattress from retaining your body heat. This is especially crucial to light sleepers, who are easily disturbed by overheating, as well as those who tend to sleep very hot or even suffer from night sweats. Not only will this product not make your problem worse; it will assist in reducing the effect of any ailment or condition that causes such problems for you.

Shipping

Part of the value of the mattress is the low overhead of having an online-only ordering capability. While this means you can’t try the mattress before you buy it, you also get a better deal on the overall price, as well as shipping direct to your home with no middle man. That allows for shipping to be free of charge, saving you an even greater wad of cash that would otherwise increase your bottom line.

Size

This product is available in extended sizes, making it an option for almost any bedroom and any existing size frame or setup. You can opt to purchase the Leesa mattress in any of these sizes:

  • Twin
  • Twin XL
  • Full
  • Queen
  • King
  • California King

Warranty

The average mattress should last about seven years. While manufacturers are striving to improve and create products that last longer, most still recommend getting a new mattress in that amount of time. however, this product comes with a 10 year warranty, meaning it is made to last and is fully replaceable should it not live up to that warranty. Note that the warranty covers manufacturer defects and unusual wear and tear that could be caused by such defects. It doesn’t cover any harm coming to the mattress from misuse, lack of care, and other issues that are unrelated to problems from the factory.

In addition to a long warranty, it comes with a 100-day in-home trial period, so if you aren’t completely satisfied with your experience in that 100 days, you can return it for a complete refund. It’s a win-win situation, with no risk involved.

Cost

The fact that there is no storefront and that you can only order the ‘bed in a box’ online helps reduce overhead costs for the manufacturer, and those savings get passed onto you, with reasonable pricing on all sizes of the product. The queen sized mattress, which is the most popular size, goes for less than a grand, which is much less than a number of mattresses of comparable quality.

Conclusion

The Leesa mattress has a lot going for it. It offers adaptable comfort with high quality materials used to create a cool, supportive, and contoured sleep environment that allows you to sleep in any position without morning soreness or tense muscles. The multiple layers of foam work to assist in contouring to your body while also making it easy to shift during the night with a little extra spring from the Avena layer. You also don’t have to worry about overheating, since the memory foam layer is thin and hidden beneath the cooler polyurethane foam that sleeps cool.

Overall, the Leesa mattress is an excellent product, and unless you’re looking for a cozy pillow top that you can sink into or a spring mattress, you should definitely consider it as an option for your next mattress.
