Did you know that for every 10 mattresses that Leesa sell, they will donate 1 for the shelters? This is just a quick note because it is the first mattress company that I came across which is actually doing something like this. Now let us get back to the Leesa Mattress Review.

Leesa has 2 different products which are the Leesa blanket and the Leesa Mattress. For this review, I am only going to focus on the mattress if that is ok with you guys.

First of all, Leesa only has one type of mattress that it is selling. Most other mattress brands have more than 30 different types of mattresses, but Leesa only focusses on 1 memory foam mattress such as the Eve mattress.

Let us dig into the different layers of the mattress:

The 4 layers of the Leesa

1. Botton dense core support foam

This part is going to be the foundation of the mattress that is going to add most of the support throughout the mattress. It is also 6 inches in thickness.

2. The middle layer

The middle layer consists out of contouring memory foam. This layer provides contouring for the body and pressure relief. It is this part that makes it possible for side sleepers to have a comfortable night’s sleep.

3. Top Layer

This layer consists out of the Cooling Avena Foam which is patented by Leesa only. This layer will provide massive airflow throughout the mattress which will make it possible for the hot air to escape. It also provides enough bounce for the body to move freely.

4. The cover

The cover consists out of polyester which makes it allergy free. It feels cool and is soft to the touch.

The Leesa is for ANY type of sleeper

You will notice that on almost all of my mattress reviews, that I like to delve into the types of sleepers a specific mattress is best for. If you are a side sleeper, then it is best to sleep on a mattress that is very soft to enable it to form to the contouring of your body.

If you are a back or stomach sleeper, then a firmer type mattress will be best for you. Some people do not have a dominant sleeping type and for them, a medium type mattress is the best.

The nice thing about the Leesa is that it is made for every type of sleeper. This is the nice thing about 100% memory foam mattresses that also gives off a slight bounce when moving. This bounce is also an indication that the memory foam is very responsive.

The contouring layer is also 2 inches which are enough to give the right amount of sink for the curves of the body. Along with all of the other layers, I feel that it can work well for the side, back/stomach and every type of sleeper.

There is no known weight limit on this mattress, but I know from personal experience that the preferred weight is below 120kg.

How to unpack the Leesa

If you are a constant mover like me, then you will know from first-hand experience how daunting it can be to transport a mattress. Luckily with Leesa, your mattress will be vacuum packed and stored in a box.

This makes it so much easier to move the mattress from house to house. Once you have rolled open your mattress on your bed platform, you can then cut the plastic open. It is very important to leave your mattress open for a couple of hours because it needs to suck in enough air to reach its full volume.

You will also experience a strange smell when opening your mattress. This is completely normal and you need to give your mattress at least 3-5 hours before you can sleep on it. The best thing to do is to leave it open for a full day.

What I liked

  1. Easily transportable. Because it is vacuum packed and rolled up, it is then easier to move around than your traditional mattresses.
  2. Gives mattress a bounce. I can still remember how the gold old days where innerspring mattresses gave you the opportunity to bounce on your mattress. Most memory foam mattresses will not give this bounce, but the memory foam of the Leesa does give it a bit of a bounce which is far better than old-fashioned memory foam.
  3. Made for most types of sleepers. Because of the contouring memory foam, this mattress became a mattress that can be used for almost any type of sleeper.

What I did not like

If you are a sleeper that dominantly sleeps on your side, then this mattress might pose some problems. Then again it also depends on your weight. This is why there is a weight limit on most of these mattresses because a heavy person that also sleeps on their side will have a hard time.

For who is Leesa ideal for?

If you are someone that likes a memory foam mattress with a bit of bounce, then this is the mattress for you. IF you are a person heavier than 120kg and you are a dominant side sleeper, then it might pose a problem for you.

This mattress is ideal for stomach, back, side and also sleepers that do not have a dominant sleeping position.
