Overview

Since Leesa’s inception in 2014, the Virginia Beach company has earned a formidable reputation among bed-in-a-box brands. They offer four different models of mattresses designed with proprietary foam blends, delivered straight to your door. Their mattresses come at a range of price points, from the most affordable to the most luxurious. Their medium-firm mattresses are suitable for all types of sleepers and optimized for pressure relief.

Construction

The Leesa mattress is a three-layer foam mattress optimized for enhanced cooling, pressure relief, and limited motion transfer. The top layer is 2” of Leesa proprietary LSA200™ foam, designed to regulate temperature so that sleepers stay cool. It also allows for a gentle hugging body contour and a slight bounce. The second layer is 2” of memory foam to relieve pressure, especially for side sleepers who are prone to the “dead arm” sensation. The final layer is 6” of dense core foam providing a strong and sturdy base.

The Leesa Hybrid is a five-layer foam and coil mattress separated into three sections. The top section is 1.5” of premium cooling foam to regulate body temperature throughout the night. The second section is 1.5” of body-contouring memory foam for pressure relief. The final section is the 6” pocket spring system – 1,000+ individually-wrapped pocket springs between two 1” core support foam layers. The 14.5 gauge coils are designed for enhanced edge support for all body types.

The Leesa Legend is Leesa’s luxury mattress model. It is 12″ in height, taller than both the Original and the Hybrid. It is a hybrid mattress but with more advanced pressure-relieving technology than Leesa’s other hybrid model, as it comes with a targeted relief dual hybrid layer. While it has all of the cooling technology of the Hybrid, it also has the addition of merino wool which wicks moisture and heat away from you so you can sleep cooler. One mattress is donated to a needy child for every one Legend sold. Furthermore, its construction includes recycled plastic bottles (a queen size uses 60 recycled bottles), so you can feel good about buying a Leesa Legend mattress.

The Studio by Leesa mattress is made up of three foam layers. The top layer is responsive to your body so that it cradles you when you lie upon it. It’s also made of more breathable memory foam to prevent overheating. The middle foam layer is designed for pressure relief, whereas the base memory foam layer is intended to provide support and durability.

Leesa mattresses are CertiPUR-US®-certified, meaning that the foam is free of harmful chemicals.

Mattress Cover

Both Leesa Original and Hybrid mattresses come with a signature four-stripe quilted mattress cover that can be unzipped and removed. The Studio by Leesa has the same type of mattress cover however in a heather blue and white striped pattern.

Mattress covers are made of a polyester/viscose/lycra blend that features fire-retardant properties. These materials dampen flames and reduce them to char, preventing flames from reaching the foam. For extra protection and to extend the lifespan of your mattress, you can purchase a Leesa waterproof mattress protector.

The Leesa Legend mattress has a different cover, made of a combination of organic cotton and merino wool. It is also hypoallergenic.

Firmness, Feel & Support

The Leesa mattress’s pressure relieving memory foam and dense foam support make it suitable for stomach, back, and side sleepers. It has a medium-firm feel with an average sinkage of 2” to 2.5” and very limited motion transfer.

The Leesa Hybrid is a bit firmer than the Leesa, with increased support all the way to the edge. It has an average sinkage of 1.5” to 2” and practically no motion transfer at all. Those looking for a highly supportive mattress that will help pinpoint and relieve aches and pains should choose this mattress.

The Leesa Legend is the softest of the three, however, it still is a bit firmer than medium. It probably falls between 5.5 to 6 on a firmness scale of 1-10, with 10 being the firmest. The microcoils provide great edge support in the Legend mattress.

Finally, the Studio by Leesa mattress is medium-firm, around a 5-7 on the 1-10 firmness scale. It’s good for all types of sleeping positions, particularly side sleeping.

Purchase & Delivery Process

Unlike with most other bed-in-a-box brands, customers have the opportunity to try out mattresses in-store before purchasing. You can even purchase Leesa mattresses and accessories at over 100 West Elm locations across the United States. Leesa is also available at select Pottery Barn locations and both of Leesa’s storefronts in SoHo, NYC, and Virginia Beach.

When you try a Leesa mattress in-store, you have the option to purchase a mattress and take it home immediately. Otherwise, you can make the purchase online. Select the size and model and add it to your cart. At checkout, customers have the option of paying with credit or debit card, PayPal, or Amazon Pay. If you would like a financing plan, select “Pay with Affirm.” If you qualify, you can choose between a 6, 12, and 18-month payment plan.

Shipping is free for all purchases and takes two to eight business days to arrive at your door. For an additional fee, customers can select white glove delivery. Purchases also come with a 100-night trial period and a 10-year limited warranty. To qualify for a full refund, you must try the mattress for at least 30 nights. If you are unsatisfied with your Leesa mattress after that time, contact customer support. They will help you get your money back and arrange free pick up for customers in the continental US. As previously noted, customers in Alaska and Hawaii are subject to a $100 return fee.

Adjustable Beds

Leesa’s adjustable base is sleeker than others and might appeal to those who prefer a minimalist aesthetic. It features a wireless remote control that allows you to raise the head for lounging or the feet for deep relaxation. Partners can get customized full-body adjustment with the optional Split King setup (2 Twin XL). The Leesa adjustable base also comes with under-bed lighting and is designed to accommodate a Leesa foam or hybrid mattress.

Each purchase of an adjustable base comes with a 30-night risk-free trial, free shipping and returns, and 1-year, 3-year, and 25-year limited warranties. Customers can choose optional in-home delivery and setup for a fee. The Leesa Adjustable Base is available in four sizes. Note that the King and the Cal King ship as 2 separate packages.

Adjustable Bed Prices:

  • The Twin XL measures 39” x 80” and costs $1,249.
  • The Queen measures 60” x 80” and costs $1,299.
  • The King measures 76” x 80” and costs $2,299.

Available in 6 sizes, with a 2.5lb foam density, this quality topper is made in the United States and ships free of charge, with delivery promised in fewer than 8 days. Financing is available via Affirm and there is a 30-day returns policy if you have an issue with the product. Prices range from $199 to $359.
