Leesa started as an online only bed-in-a-box retailer in 2014. Leesa was one of the very first few companies that started selling mattresses online. Since then, Leesa has become one of the most renowned and loved mattress brand for various reasons. It is known for its quality, customer service, and loads of positive reviews by the users. If you are looking for a memory foam mattress but are afraid of sinking into it, or sleeping hot, then Leesa is worth a strong look for you. Leesa is designed so as to offer the contouring feeling of memory foam without getting hot or sinking into it. Please read further for the full review of Leesa mattress.



Leesa is an all foam mattress that comprises of 3 layers which stacks up to 10 inches of comfort.

The first layer is made up of 2 inches of Avena® foam which is known for providing additional breathability and air flow to the mattress. This convulated (egg crate) layer helps to keep the mattress cooler through out the night. Just like latex, Avena® foam offers ideal amount of bounce which lets the sleeper to move freely and change positions.

The second layer of Leesa mattress is made up of 2 inches of memory foam. Memory foam is the most comfortable layer in a mattress which provides hug to the contours of the body while providing support and motion isolation. Memory foam is known for retaining body’s heat but by placing it below the Avena foam, Leesa has eliminated the heating problem of memory foam while still providing the feel of it.

The base layer is a 6 inches of high density poly foam layer that offers support and firmness to the mattress. It acts as a foundation for the above layers and provides shape to the mattress.



Firmness of a mattress is a subjective topic. It cannot be described accurately as it highly depends upon the weight distribution and personal preferences of every individual. After our tests, we have rated the Leesa mattress to be a 5.5-6 on the firmness scale (10 being the firmest). This clearly places Leesa in medium firm category and we believe this will be suitable for most individuals. Whether you are a side sleeper or a stomach/back sleeper, this mattress offers great cradle and support while providing pressure relief regardless of the position you sleep in.


Motion Isolation

If you’re going to share your bed with your partner, then motion isolation is not something you should overlook. You really don’t want to get up to every twist and turn of your partner, right?

Just like other memory foams that are widely known for providing motion isolation, Leesa also contains motion easily. Leesa offers little to no motion transfer which means that you or your partner will not be bothered by each other’s twists and turns. This makes Leesa an ideal mattress for couples out there looking for a new mattress.


Edge Support

If you share your bed with your partner then you understand how useful it is to use full surface of the mattress. You obviously don’t want to roll out of the bed while changing positions.

You will experience a bit a compression while laying on your back, but this is commonly expected from an all foam mattress. You can easily change positions and Leesa will offer enough support even if you lay right at the edge of it. It is ideal for people who frequently change their position in the mattress as Leesa will not let them roll out of the bed accidentally.


Other Features

  • Leesa offers 100 nights trial where you can try the mattress at the comfort of your home and if you don’t like it you can return it within 100 days without any extra charges to you.
  • It is made in U.S.A. and it offers free shipping and returns.
  • Little to no off-gassing.
  • Leesa plants a tree for every mattress sold.
  • They also donate a mattress to non profit organisations after every 10 mattresses sold.


Overall, you’re going to love Leesa if you prefer the feeling of traditional memory foam, but are afraid of sleeping hot because Leesa provides enough air flow and breathability because of the Avena foam, which will give you the feeling of memory foam while keeping the mattress cooler through out the night. It is ideal for stomach and back sleepers as it provides support and bounce of latex but at the same time it is much more durable than actual latex. You can get Leesa for as low as $525 which is a great value for the price as it is comfortable, cooler, and universally adaptable.
