Quick Summary

Established in 2014, Leesa is a U.S.-based “bed-in-a-box” brand. The company’s current selection includes four different mattress models and a handful of bedding accessories. This review will take an in-depth look at one of Leesa’s newest products, the Leesa Mattress Topper.

The Leesa Mattress Topper is composed of adaptive polyfoam that contours to the body much like memory foam, but without sinking deeply. The topper’s cover, which is made from a knit fabric blend, can be removed and laundered in any household machine. Altogether, the topper measures 2 inches thick. Its feel is considered medium, which rates as a 5 on the 1-10 firmness scale.

Due to the topper’s adaptive qualities and mid-level feel, it is very well suited to people who weigh up to 230 pounds – side and back sleepers in particular. The foam also absorbs motion quite well and the topper itself is completely silent when bearing weight, so it can help reduce sleep disturbances for couples. Leesa offers a 30-night sleep trial for the topper, along with a one-year warranty, and shipping is free to all 50 states.

Read on to learn all about the Leesa Mattress Topper. Our review includes construction and material specs, prices and available sizes, and performance ratings based on owner experiences and our own hands-on research. We’ll also take a closer look at Leesa’s shipping, return, and warranty policies.

Based on the ratings below, the Leesa Mattress Topper is comparable to other all-foam models in terms of overall performance. Strengths of this topper include close and even body-conforming and excellent motion isolation. It also sleeps cooler than many of its all-foam competitors, though support is limited and it may sink a bit too much during sex.

Thanks to its medium feel, the Leesa Mattress Topper is useful for anyone whose mattress feels too firm or stiff. However, keep in mind that the topper will not be very effective if the mattress sags excessively or lacks strong support. Toppers should be seen as accessories, not remedies for a mattress that needs to be replaced.

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

Based on our customer feedback and product testing, the Leesa Mattress Topper has 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 toppers, which are also influenced by the mattress beneath. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to mattresses and mattress toppers.

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

Weight Light Average Heavy
Sleep Position Less than 130 LBS 130 LBS - 230 LBS Greater than 230 LBS
Side
Back
Stomach

The Leesa Mattress Topper’s medium feel and close conforming make it best suited to side and back sleepers who weigh up to 230 pounds. These individuals should experience even body-contouring and pressure relief while lying on the topper, but they won’t sink too much beneath the surface. Lighter stomach sleepers may also feel comfortable. That said, people who weigh more than 230 pounds are more likely to sag excessively. The topper’s 2-inch profile may also be problematic, as it can create feelings of “bottoming out” for heavier people.

The Leesa Mattress Topper contains one layer of adaptive polyfoam encased in a removable knit cover. Altogether it measures 2 inches thick. The polyfoam has a low density of 2.5 pounds per cubic foot (PCF) and an indentation load deflection (ILD) of 11, meaning the material will feel quite soft and conform closely to the body. The topper also weighs 18 pounds in a queen size, so lifting and moving it should be relatively easy.

Wash the cover in cold water on a gentle cycle, then tumble dry on low or air dry. Avoid putting the cover back on until the fabric is completely dry.
