What You Need to Know about the Leesa Pillow

Pillow Type and Components: Leesa offers polyfoam and down alternative pillows. Two models are currently available.

  • The Leesa Pillow contains a solid piece of Avena polyfoam that features hundreds of ventilation holes on the surface. The quilted, removable cover is made from a blend of polyester and rayon.

One side of the pillow is quilted and contoured, and the other side (where the gel insert is located) is flat. The loft can be adjusted by adding or removing the fill. Additionally, the interlining can serve as a low-loft pillow on its own. The cover is made from a blend of Tencel® lyocell and nylon.

Leesa Pillow Sleep Ratings

Please note: we do not have enough customer data to create ratings for the Leesa Hybrid Pillow. We will update this section as soon we receive sufficient feedback.

Category Criteria Leesa Rating What Leesa Users Say
Customer Satisfaction Based on data collection, this is an overall customer sentiment regarding the Leesa Pillow. 72% The Leesa Pillow has earned a customer satisfaction rating of 72%, which is on par with the average rating for all one-piece foam pillows.
Durability The average pillow will begin to deteriorate after two to three years of use. Good The Leesa Pillow will usually perform for at least two years before it begins to flatten and lose shape.
Firmness Options Some pillows are only available in one firmness setting, which can be limited for customers who fall outside that loft category. Poor The Leesa Pillow is only available in one firmness option, ‘Medium,’ and this may be limiting for sleepers with different preferences.
Shape Retention Some pillows flatten out over time, and require constant fluffing in order to maintain a full, supportive shape. Good Like memory foam, the Avena foam found in Leesa Pillows will recover its shape when not in use. However, some flattening over time is to be expected.
Moldability Pillows that are highly moldable can be scrunched and squeezed into different positions, which is beneficial for sleepers who snuggle with pillows. Fair As is the case with many one-piece foam pillows, the Leesa Pillow is not very moldable and may not be suitable for people who prefer scrunchier, snugglier pillows.
Conforming Some pillows conform to the contours of the sleeper’s head and neck for optimal comfort and targeted pressure relief. Very Good According to owners, the Leesa Pillow conforms closely and alleviates a high amount of pain and pressure.
Temperature Neutrality Pillows may sleep hot or cold, usually depending on both the air circulation in the interior and the composition of the cover. Good Many one-piece foam pillows sleep warmer than shredded foam models, but the Leesa Pillow’s ventilated foam offers better circulation and cooler sleep.
Odor Potential Off-gassing is to be expected from most pillows, but some produce stronger, longer-lasting odors that can disrupt sleep. Fair The Leesa Pillow normally emits some odor, but owners say the smells are neither excessively harsh nor persistent.
Weight Some pillows are significantly heavier than average, making it difficult for some sleepers to move and maneuver them in the night. Good The Leesa Pillow weighs about five pounds and should not be difficult for most sleepers to move or adjust.
Ease of Cleaning Depending on the material, pillows may be machine washable or require more intensive cleaning, such as hand washing, spot cleaning, or professional (dry) cleaning. Fair The Leesa Pillow cover is removable and machine washable, but the foam should be spot cleaned and air dried only.
