Overview

Leesa is a U.S.-based mattress and bedding product manufacturer. The company currently offers two mattress models:

  • The Leesa Mattress is a mixed-foam mattress. It features two comfort layers: a top layer of 3 PCF LSA200 polyfoam and a second layer of 3 PCF memory foam. The support core is made of high-density 1.8 PCF polyfoam, and its cover is woven from a blend of polyester and Lycra® spandex. The Leesa is considered ‘Medium,’ or a 5 on the 1-10 firmness scale, and it measures 10″ thick.
  • The Leesa Hybrid Mattress (formerly known as the Sapira) is made with comfort layers of 3 PCF cooling polyfoam, 4 PCF memory foam, and 2 PCF transitional polyfoam. Its support core features 14.5-gauge pocketed coils reinforced with a base layer of 1.8 PCF high-density polyfoam. The Leesa Hybrid is ‘Medium Firm’ (6.5) and measures 11″ thick.

Both Leesa models are constructed with multiple foam comfort layers, including memory foam. These layers cushion the sleeper’s body without sagging excessively, resulting in above-average levels of pain and pressure relief, as well as better spinal alignment for side sleepers. The Leesa Mattress and Leesa Hybrid Mattress also provide great motion isolation, making them suitable for couples who awaken easily due to movement or noise. The Leesa Mattress also makes no noise when bearing weight, while strong airflow through the coil layer makes the Leesa Hybrid Mattress a good option for hot sleepers.

Both the Leesa Mattress and Leesa Hybrid Mattress have below-average prices compared to all-foam and hybrid beds, respectively. Leesa also offers free standard shipping to all 50 states. Both Leesa mattresses are backed by 100-night sleep trials and 10-year warranties.

Sleep Rating

Durability
Good

The durability of Leesa mattresses should be on par with most mixed foam models — roughly seven years with nightly use.

Motion Isolation
Very Good

The dense, multi-layered foam construction of Leesa mattresses cuts down on motion transfer to a significant degree.

Conforming
Very Good

Leesa mattresses conform very closely to help align the spine and alleviate aches and pains throughout the body, though some larger sleepers say it lacks sufficient support.

Sex
Fair

Leesa mattresses offer some bounce, but these models may not be responsive enough for some couples.

Temperature Neutrality
Good

The Leesa can sleep hot for some, but this mattress is relatively cool compared to many competing foam-based models.

Off-gassing
Good

Like many other foam mattresses, the Leesa is associated with some off-gassing odor, but the smells tend to dissipate within a few days.

Edge Support
Fair

Edge support is fair for most of the mixed foam, universal comfort beds on the market. The Leesa is no better or worse, but on par with its competitors.

Noise
Excellent

Leesa mattresses are virtually silent when bearing weight.

Sleep Rating

Durability
Good

Durability for the Leesa Hybrid appears to be on par with other mixed-foam hybrid models and should last for at least seven years with regular nightly use.

Motion Isolation
Very Good

The Leesa Hybrid can absorb and isolate motion transfer well, due to its thick, foam-based comfort system.

Conforming
Good

The Leesa Hybrid's triple-layer foam comfort system conforms closer and alleviates more pressure than other hybrids with similar features.

Sex
Very Good

The Leesa Hybrid is responsive and bouncy enough for most couples, which is typical of hybrid mattresses in general.

Temperature Neutrality
Very Good

The Leesa Hybrid absorbs a minimal amount of body heat and sleeps quite cool as a result.

Off-gassing
Good

Odor potential is low for the Leesa Hybrid but it's possible some off-gassing can occur. Any smells should dissapate within the first day after unboxing.

Edge Support
Very Good

Our testing indicates that the Leesa Hybrid has solid edge support and sleepers won't have any trouble sitting on or sleeping towards the edge of the bed

Noise
Good

The Leesa Hybrid doesn't make noise when bearing weight but there is some potential for noise to occur over time given the use of coils in the mattress.

The Leesa Mattress offers a ‘Medium’ firmness level and 10″ profile. These settings make the mattress ideal for most side and back sleepers who weigh 130 to 230 pounds, as well as lighter or heavier people who prefer sleep surfaces with balanced firmness. However, some larger people find the low profile makes the mattress difficult for getting into and out of bed. The Leesa Hybrid Mattress is more suitable for heavier people – particularly back and stomach sleepers – since it offers a thicker profile and a firmer feel. It may, however, be too firm for side sleepers, particularly those who weigh less than 130 pounds.

Our testing process found Leesa mattresses should also be great for you if…

  • You’d like to purchase a mixed-foam or hybrid mattress at a below-average price-point
  • You experience frequent and/or chronic back pain
  • You and/or your sleep partner awaken easily due to movement or noise
  • You tend to sleep hot

  1. This warranty is entirely nonprorated. Leesa will, at its sole option, repair or replace any mattress with defects for as long as the warranty is valid. Leesa covers the labor costs associated with repairs and replacements, but owners must pay all related shipping and handling charges.
  2. The warranty will be voided if the mattress leaves the United States, Canada, or the United Kingdom.
  3. The warranty will cover the following defects:
    • Visible indentations that are deeper than one inch (1?) and not resulting from an ‘improper or unsupportive’ foundation.
    • Flaws in the craftsmanship of the mattress that damage the foam after the user has correctly set up the mattress with a proper foundation.
    • Flaws with the cover, including the zippers and seams. Please note: ‘In the event that Leesa replaces the mattress cover, Leesa will replace it with the current style of cover available for the mattress, which may be of a different color, design, or material than the original cover provided.’
  4. The warranty will not cover the following:
    • Indentations that do not measure one inch (1?) or deeper, or a ‘normal increase’ in the softness of the memory foam that does not affect its ability to provide pressure relief. These issues are considered standard wear and tear.
    • Repair or replacement requests that arise due to changes in the owner’s comfort preferences.
    • Burns, cuts, tears, stains, and other physical damages to the cover not caused by the manufacturing or shipping processes.

A new warranty will be issued for the new parts only.

How Does Leesa Compare to Other Beds?

As any consumer does with a product they’re considering, our mattress assessments naturally involve comparing them with other similar products. Be it composition, firmness, or price, we think it’s important to see how Leesa mattresses stack up to other beds.

The Leesa Mattress and Leesa Hybrid Mattress each offer unique sleep experiences. The all-foam Leesa has a ‘Medium’ firmness and a thick, body-conforming comfort system that isolates motion transfer very well and does not make any noise when bearing weight. It is ideal for most sleepers in the average weight group (130 to 230 pounds). The Leesa Hybrid Mattress (formerly known as the Sapira) is thicker and firmer, and made with pocketed coils that provide great support for back and stomach sleepers. The mattress also sleeps fairly cool due to strong air circulation through the coil layers. Both beds have below-average price-points for their mattress type.
