Leesa offers is a universal comfort, mixed foam mattress that comes in at about a 5 on the firmness scale.
Our review of the Leesa Mattress found the fast recovering Aveena foam (latex-like) worked well to both alleviate pressure points and give sleepers less sinkage than traditional memory foam mattresses. Using standard density foams similar to comparable bed-in-a-box brands like Casper, Nolah, Tuft and Needle, etc, we expect this mattress to be durable enough to last at least 6-7 years with nightly use.
We think it’s a solid offering at a very reasonable price point and were equally impressed with Leesa’s commitment to giving back with their 1/10 mattress donation program and on-going charity work.
Read on for our full review of the Leesa Mattress, including sleeper and performance ratings, who we recommend this bed to, and everything else you need to know about the mattress.
WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The durability of Leesa mattresses appears to be on par with most memory foam models — roughly 7 years — but the company has been in business for roughly four years and the long-term performance of these mattresses has not been fully assessed.
WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The dense, multi-layered foam construction of Leesa mattresses cuts down on motion transfer to a significant degree, according to owners.
WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:Like many other foam mattresses, the Leesa is associated with some off-gassing odor, but the smells tend to dissipate within a few days.
WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:Leesa owners say their mattress conforms very closely to help align the spine and alleviate aches and pains throughout the body, though some larger sleepers say it lacks sufficient support.
WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:Leesa mattresses offer some bounce, but these models may not be responsive enough for some couples.
WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Leesa can sleep hot, owners say, but this mattress is relatively cool compared to many competing foam-based models.
WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:Edge support is a chief complaint among Leesa owners, and sinkage in places where people sit is commonly reported.
WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:Leesa mattresses are virtually silent when bearing weight.
What Type of Sleeper Is Best Suited for 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.
Customer data combined with our own testing process, which uses sleepers of three different weight profiles sleeping in different positions, shows the Leesa is a solid for most sleepers. If you’re a heavier sleeper, the Leesa might not offer the support you need but light and average sleepers who prefer the feel of a mixed foam mattress will love the Leesa.
Our testing process found the Leesa should also be great for you if…
You suffer from back pain and weigh less than 230lbs. Especially, if you need more mid-back support.
You like a feeling somewhere in between floating on top of your mattress and sinking into your mattress.
You prefer to buy from a company that has a charitable arm of the business

Warranty: Leesa offers a 10-year non-prorated, full-replacement limited warranty:
Leesa will replace or repair defective parts free of charge, but owners are responsible for paying transportation and shipping fees associated with these services.
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’.
The warranty of a Leesa mattress 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.
Replacement of additional Leesa parts (such as blankets), unless that product is also defective.
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.
This warranty is exclusively offered to original Leesa owners who purchase their mattress directly from Leesa or an authorized retailer. Those who buy or acquire their mattress from the original owner or a non-authorized retailer will not qualify for warranty coverage.
