Quick Summary

Leesa is a U.S.-based mattress and bedding product manufacturer. The company currently offers three 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.
  • The Leesa Legend is Leesa’s newest mattress. Like the Leesa Hybrid, the Leesa Legend is a hybrid model with a ‘Medium Firm’ (6.5) feel. The bed’s comfort system features a top layer of ventilated polyfoam, a second layer of memory foam, and a third layer of pocketed microcoils, along with a polyfoam transitional layer. The support core is constructed with pocketed coils and a high-density polyfoam base. The luxury cover is an ultra-plush fabric blend of organic cotton, polyester, merino wool, and recycled PES from recycled water bottles. The Leesa Legend measures 12″ thick, making it Leesa’s tallest bed.

All three Leesa models are constructed with mixed-foam comfort layers, including a memory foam layer for added body contouring. 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, Leesa Hybrid, and Leesa Legend also provide above-average motion isolation, making them suitable for couples who awaken easily due to movement. The Leesa Mattress also makes no noise when bearing weight, while strong airflow through their coil layers make the Leesa Hybrid and Leesa Legend good options for hot sleepers..

The Leesa Mattress and Leesa Hybrid Mattress have below-average prices compared to all-foam and hybrid beds, respectively. The Leesa Legend is fairly expensive by comparison. Leesa also offers free standard shipping to all 50 states. All three Leesa mattresses are backed by 100-night sleep trials and 10-year warranties.

Read on to learn more about Leesa beds in terms of composition, pricing, and performance. This guide also includes an overview of the brand’s shipping, return, and warranty policies, along with some similar brand recommendations.

What Type of Sleeper is Best Suited to a Leesa Mattress?

Based on our customer feedback data, Leesa mattresses received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions.

Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses.

Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a mattress.

For more information on sleeping positions please see our guides for side, back, stomach and combination sleepers.

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.

The Leesa Legend is also a good choice for heavier back and stomach sleepers, as well as lighter people and/or side and combination sleepers who prefer a ‘Medium Firm’ feel. The bed’s 12″ profile is also helpful for larger people who struggle getting on and off shorter beds.

Leesa Mattress Recommendations

  • 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

How Do Leesa Mattresses 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.

The Leesa Legend, like the Leesa Hybrid, offers a ‘Medium Firm’ feel. However, the bed is designed with an additional comfort layer of pocketed microcoils for added support and body cushioning. This layer and the pocketed coil support core circulate air very well, making the Leesa Legend ideal for hot sleepers. At 12″ thick, it is also a good choice for those who prefer high-profile beds.

    Warranty

    Leesa offers a 10-year warranty for the Leesa Mattress, Leesa Hybrid, and Leesa Legend:

    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.
    5. If the original mattress owner decides to upgrade after noticing a defect covered under their warranty, they may do so by paying the difference between the cost of the original product being replaced and the cost of the upgraded product, as well as the cost of additional required components that are not being replaced under the warranty. A new warranty will be issued for the new parts only.
    6. This warranty is non-transferable. It is exclusively offered to original owners who purchase their mattress from Leesa or an authorized retailer. Those who buy or acquire their mattress from the original owner or a non-authorized retailer do not receive warranty coverage.
