Reviewing The Leesa Mattress – UPDATED for 2023

Leesa Mattress

For fifteen years, my hubby and I have been sleeping on a spring mattress. However, we recently both agreed that it was time to buy a new mattress. We opted for online mattress shopping and we found a new queen mattress.

All of the mattresses we bought online because you can return them risk-free (check out for an exhaustive list of mattresses available online).

Eventually, we both unanimously agreed on one, the “Leesa” mattress.

Remember Goldilocks? Well, I am actually starting to feel a bit like her; having three beds and all. All the same, getting enough and sufficient sleep is extremely important to me, and more so if you fall into the category of “busy moms” like I do.

Mattress Shopping Process

So, I first tried out the Tuft and Needle mattress, then tried the Casper Sleep mattress but I still felt quite unsatisfied with the overall result. In my mind, I was back to the starting line. I couldn’t bare the thought of shopping several of those dreadful mattress stores again.

Luck was on my side as the guys from Leesa contacted me, and gave me some insight information into their new brand; the 100% American made all foam mattress. From the information they gave me, I could tell it was a brand worth trying.

Just like the other two companies that I had ordered from, the shopping process was simple and their prices were so affordable that I just couldn’t resist the offer. Within a few days (on the afternoon of Christmas Eve), our brand new Leesa Mattress was delivered.

From the very first time we saw it, it impressed us with its clean and simple packaging as well as the easy to follow instruction booklet that we found inside. Surprisingly, even after unwrapping the mattress, there was still no trace of any weird smell. Furthermore, the mattress expanded relatively quickly. We did have to leave it undisturbed in the bedroom for a few hours just to ensure full expansion.

The stylish exterior cover of the mattress also made a huge impression on us not only because of how aesthetically pleasing it was but also because of how soft it was. You do not even need to use bed sheets. It even got me wishing that Leesa was in the business of designing and making bed linen.

After the first night of sleeping on the mattress, my husband and I both woke up feeling quite refreshed and more optimistic that the mattress hunt was finally over. We wanted to give it a week before making a conclusion on the mattress.

A week turned into a month and a month into two and still here we are with absolutely no complaints whatsoever about the bed. One thing is for sure, we are both getting a full night’s sleep and none of us has experienced back pains of any kind.

The mattress has also eliminated the annoying heat and subsequently, sweatiness brought about by some memory foam mattresses. With other mattresses, we would sometimes wake up with the sheets in a state of chaos and disarray as they would come off the corners of the bed. With the Leesa mattress, however, this is a thing of the past. I know that this probably sounds like one of those first world problems but believe me, nothing is quite as annoying as sleeping on a well-made bed and waking up with the bed sheets in disarray.

Whats more, the mattress is quite large and firm and this has ensured that both my husband and I are able to comfortably sleep on it without bumping into each other in the middle. Even I do not get bothered by my husbands turning and tossing anymore. Getting a perfect mattress for a couple can be quite a difficult thing and the fact that we were able to get such a good deal within such a short period is something we are utterly thankful for.

Truth be told, everyone at Leesa deserves a pat on the back for working so hard to come up with this winning mattress formula. I may have spent 6 months trying out three different mattresses, but in the end, I chanced upon the perfect balance between the Casper mattress and the Tuft and Needle mattress; the Leesa mattress!

Yikes, We Need A New Mattress In Our Guest Room!

It is now two years down the line since I shopped for an online mattress. That was way back in 2016. You remember? Well, I have not been following up on the latest mattresses in the market since then. Maybe it is because I got what I needed and it has been serving me well for that time.

I suppose the words of Chris Martin that you only need the sun when it starts burning low can better describe my situation. Guess what? I now need a mattress once again. Of course, our Leesa mattress was still fine, and there is nothing to worry about. Now it is time for our guestroom to get a better mattress. We know that our grandparents will be visiting us and needless to say, they required a nice bed that can make them comfortable the whole night.

I know in order to sleep well, one needs a good mattress; our bed proved that 2 yrs ago.   So, I had to talk about it with my husband. He thought it was a good idea to throw out the 13-year-old mattress and get a better one for his parents.

Hubby has not been following the online mattress market either, so we both are scratching our heads about where we start.  I went online to see what brands are out there.  I saw an explosion has happened with new companies popping up selling their new mattresses.  Too many to discuss here.

My husband was satisfied with what we have, the Leesa mattress. So that became my starting point; I decided to go online a bit to find out if there have been any updates that might help us. I looked at other customers’ reviews and experiences with other types of mattresses they had bought.

I even saw an article written about why there appear to be more mattress companies than Starbucks in some cities. And now, there are plenty of online stores also- certainly, Casper may have been preeminently out of the gate, but it appears as if you cannot go online anymore and fail to get an ad for a modish bed in a box of a brand-new firm.

I wanted to cut through the noise a little and get a mattress that is truly better than what you might obtain in a lot of the common brick-and-mortar shops and surely more pleasant than some online alternatives,  so I looked some more at the Leesa Mattress sites.

The Leesa mattress has definitely improved my sleep life, and I have to confirm again that my husband and I have been stunned by simply how real our experience really has been on the mattress.

The Leesa mattress pledges to give you “the support, comfort, and universal feel everybody needs to sleep better.” The firm uses what it describes as a “unique combination of performance foam layers” with the aim to “deliver cooling bounce, core support for amazing sleep and contouring pressure relief.”

And honestly, Leesa kept their word. For sure, that is exactly what we needed for our grandparents and any other visitor to our home. Therefore, we had no other option but to purchase another Leesa mattress for our house.

Now that we have bought the mattress, I wanted to give it proper testing.  I saw there was the need to go again through the reviews just in case some things might have changed since we purchased our mattress in 2016.

What I realized in the popular e-commerce platform was that the mattress boasts pretty respectable ratings (4.1-5.0 stars) by at least 900 reviewers. But my interest was in what folks said the problems were in the first place. I studied things regarding evident sags, the mattress sleeping too hot, and issues with the Leesa reclining flat. We decided to not order the exact same mattress but try the new Sapira Leesa mattress.

After we ordered the mattress and it arrived with an exterior cover just like the one we had brought in 2016. The first day it arrived, we had to put aside our now-old mattress to try out the new one before putting it in the guest room.

Review of the 2018 Leesa Mattress

Fortunately, we did not observe any of the issues that bothered some of the people in the reviews I had read online during our own trial of the 2018 Leesa mattress; however, I will discuss each item presented to the best of my abilities.

While I am not a hot sleeper, I absolutely like the room to be chilly so that I can cuddle into many folds of our blankets and then move around a bit in the bed if I get too warm. When I lay on the Leesa, I noticed that I did not, have to move to other areas of the bed during the whole night. The side on which I slept certainly became slightly warmer than other sections of the mattress, but I did not endure any kind of overheating, which was really awesome. That was exactly what my husband experienced too.

The sagging problem was not there, as per our experience.

Just after unpacking the mattress, it extended nicely and stretched out, too, and has a decent density (which was uniform across the whole of the mattress).

And talking of decent, one of my beloved things about the Leesa mattress is that it is a good-looking addition to the bedroom. Its color is grey, and the white cover nearly resembles something you could simply sleep on without a proper sheet, but that would not be the usual hygienic way of sleeping on your bed.

That said, whenever you are doing laundry, this is not a mattress that you would be embarrassed by should your neighbors or family see your unmade bed. The in-built mattress cover is nice to the touch — in fact, it is made of the same fabric as the Leesa Blanket, which I also own, and I cannot tell you enough about it.

There was no issue with the mattress lying flat. First, we unwrapped it as the company recommended that we do, putting the rolled-up mattress on our bed frame and then removing the plastic cover then it unfolded. It happened as expected!

Admittedly, I experienced comfort during my relaxation and woke up without any pains or aches, which was significant. I discovered that the Leesa was pretty good no matter which position I tested.

After 2 weeks, becoming satisfied with the new Sapira Leesa mattress, we transferred our 2 yr old mattress to the guest room. Oh yes, we loved the new Sapira Leesa so much that we kept it for our own room!

I bought some new bedding to go with the mattress in our guest room. The guest room bed was improved, and it looked more presentable and charming. We went back to our room convinced that when the grandparents or any other guest visited us, they would have a memorable night. We are ready to have fun with our company.
