Quick Summary

Also known for its memory foam mattress and other sleep accessories, Leesa offers two pillow models:

  • The Leesa Pillow is a one-piece pillow with a premium polyfoam core. The foam is aerated with tiny holes for added ventilation. This pillow also comes with a removable cover made of polyester and rayon. The Leesa Pillow is ‘Medium’ in terms of firmness, and has a 5? loft.
  • The Leesa Hybrid Pillow is a reversible pillow with different components and firmness settings on each side. The ‘Medium Soft’ side is quilted and contoured, and padded with down alternative microfibers. The ‘Medium Firm’ side is flat and padded with a cooling gel insert. The pillow also has polyester interlining that is removable and machine-washable; it can also serve as a low-loft standalone pillow. The Leesa Hybrid Pillow also comes with a cover made from Tencel® lyocell and nylon.

Each Leesa pillow offers a different sleep experience. The Leesa Pillow conforms closely to the sleeper’s head, neck, and shoulders to alleviate pressure points and improve spinal alignment for sleepers. The solid-foam core maintains a full shape and never requires fluffing. The ventilation holes also allow it to sleep cooler than other solid-foam pillows.

The Leesa Hybrid Pillow is a great choice for sleeper’s who’s pillow surface preferences vary from night to night. With two distinct sides, the hybrid pillow provides completely different feels. The cooling gel side sleeps fairly cool, while the down-alternative side feels exceptionally soft.

Leesa offers free standard shipping to customers in all 50 states, and deliveries are available to Canada as well. The pillows have above-average price-points, with the Leesa Hybrid being the more expensive option. Both pillows are backed by 100-night sleep trials and three-year warranties.

As you can see, the Leesa Pillow and Leesa Hybrid Pillow earned different ratings in most categories. The Leesa Pillow – which contains solid, ventilated foam – provides close conforming, alleviates a fair amount of pain, and maintains a consistent shape.
