Leesa Hybrid Mattress Review

The Leesa Hybrid is best for:

  • Sleepers who prefer edge support

  • Sleepers who like a medium firmness with a bit of bounce

  • Those who share a bed with a partner who prefers a different sleep position

The Leesa Hybrid is not recommended for:

  • Those with an especially restless sleep partner

  • Those who enjoy sinking into conforming memory foam

The Leesa Hybrid mattress combines memory and support foam with pocketed spring coils to offer pressure relief. It contours to support proper spinal alignment and has a bit of bounce for those who prefer a resilient feel versus the sink-in-the-mattress effect from a foam-only mattress.

The top foam layer is perforated to keep you cooler while you sleep, followed by a memory foam layer that relieves pressures on areas such as your shoulders, hips, and back. The layer of pocket springs adds stability and bounce to the mattress. Even with springs, most people won’t disturb a bed partner with tossing and turning because the coils are individually pocketed and move independently. That said, professional reviews note that this hybrid doesn’t isolate motion as well as a foam mattress, so you may find it too jiggly if your bedmate tends to move around a lot at night.

The springs also provide good edge support, so you don’t get that falling-off-the-side feeling like with some all-foam mattresses, and you get support across the entire sleeping surface. If you sit on the edge of your bed, there’s no “slide,” which is also appealing to sleepers who like to sleep close to the edge of the mattress.

With its combination of memory foam and springs, the Leesa Hybrid has some bounce and will likely appeal to those who are accustomed to traditional box-spring mattresses. Professional reviewers say with its medium firmness level the Leesa Hybrid is a good choice for back sleepers and stomach sleepers with a slim to average build, and for side sleepers of all sizes.

The hole-punched top foam layer allows for airflow to keep you cooler while you sleep and differentiates the Leesa from some other hybrid mattresses. The Leesa Hybrid did not rank as one of our Best Cooling Mattresses of 2021, however.

Like most other hybrid mattresses we rated, the Leesa Hybrid has more than 1,000 individually pocketed coils. This is a typical count, but not as many as our No. 1 Best Mattress of 2021, the Avocado Green Mattress with up to 1,414 coils.

At $1,799 for a queen size, the Leesa is more expensive than most of our other top-rated hybrid mattresses, and it lacks cooling layers like the Brooklyn Bedding Aurora Hybrid, which has a cooling infused layer and a CopperFlex layer that is antimicrobial.

Overall, the Leesa Hybrid mattress is best for sleepers who share a bed and prefer different sleep positions, as both can likely get the support and contouring they need. If you like a medium to medium-firm mattress and want a bit of resilient bounce, the Leesa Hybrid is a great fit. However, this mattress does not control motion as well as a memory foam mattress, so while the coils are individually pocketed, especially light sleepers could be bothered by a restless bed partner.

How Much Does the Leesa Hybrid Mattress Cost?

The Leesa Hybrid mattress costs $1,799 for a queen, which is more expensive than most other Best Hybrid Mattresses of 2021 we rated. It is about $300 more than our overall Best Mattress of 2021, the Avocado Green Mattress, which is ranks No. 1 in Best Hybrid Mattresses of 2021. And, it’s about $1,150 more than the competing No. 4 hybrid mattress, the Allswell Luxe Hybrid for $645.

What Is the Leesa Hybrid Mattress Made Of?

The Leesa Hybrid mattress is composed of five layers, starting from the bottom with a 1-inch core of dense foam to support a 6-inch layer of individually pocketed, 14.5-gauge springs and a perimeter support system. With more than 1,000 springs, the Leesa Hybrid has a bit of bounce yet the coils move independently to reduce motion transfer so you won’t feel every move your bed partner makes.

On top of the springs is a 1-inch core support foam layer, then a 1.5-inch memory foam layer that conforms to the body to support proper spinal alignment while you sleep. Side sleepers will appreciate the pressure relief from memory foam for shoulders, hips, and knees. The top layer is a cooling perforated foam that allows for airflow. While not a specialty cooling material like some other mattresses we rated, the punctured foam resists trapping heat. The mattress cover is made from naturally breathable cotton. The overall thickness of the Leesa Hybrid mattress is 11 inches, and a queen weighs 115 pounds.

Leesa Hybrid vs. Tempur-Pedic Tempur-Adapt Hybrid

The hallmark of Tempur-Pedic’s Tempur-Adapt Hybrid mattress is that the company incorporates the same pressure-relieving material originally developed by NASA to absorb G-forces. The three-layer mattress has a comfort layer of foam, a support layer, and more than 1,000 spring coils at the base.

The Leesa Hybrid also has over 1,000 individually pocketed springs, and while it doesn’t boast NASA-inspired materials, its top layer of perforated foam promotes airflow, a second memory foam layer relieves pressure points, and a bottom core foam layer below the springs offers additional support. The Leesa is medium-firm while Tempur-Pedic’s hybrid mattress has a medium feel, with both offering the bounce of an innerspring mattress and some motion control from foam. Overall, the Leesa Hybrid is a better value, costing about $400 less for a queen and ranking higher as our No. 4 Best Hybrid Mattress of 2021 versus No. 12 for the Tempur-Pedic Tempur-Adapt Hybrid.

Leesa Hybrid vs. Casper Nova Hybrid

The Leesa Hybrid and Casper Nova Hybrid both ranked No. 4 in our Best Hybrid Mattress of 2021 ratings. A benefit of the Casper Nova Hybrid is the company’s approach to creating conforming foam with seven zones that keep the spine aligned. Also, the cooling layer of foam includes many holes to promote airflow. The Leesa Hybrid also has perforated foam.

At $1,799 for a queen, the Leesa Hybrid is a better value, priced around $200 less than Casper ($1,995 for a queen). Both offer pressure-point relief with a conforming foam layer, but if you want extra zoned support to align your spine, Casper might be the better choice if you’re willing to pay a bit more.

Leesa Original Mattress Review

The Leesa Original is best for:

  • Sleepers who want a cost-effective foam mattress

  • Those with restless sleep partners because foam reduces motion transfer

  • Most side and back sleepers and lightweight stomach sleepers

The Leesa Original is not recommended for:

  • Those who tend to sleep hot

  • Sleepers who prefer a stable edge

  • Sleepers who want foam that is antimicrobial

The Leesa Original mattress ranked No. 26 overall in Best Mattresses of 2021, and is the No. 7 Best Lower-Priced Mattress, costing $1,099 for a queen size. This all-foam mattress is constructed from three layers, starting with a 6-inch core support foam base to provide stability. On top of that is 2 inches of memory foam that molds to your curves to provide pressure relief and promotes proper alignment. If you’re a side sleeper, you’ll appreciate how it allows your shoulders, hips, and knees to fall into place without feeling hard, since it has a medium feel.

The all-foam construction lacks the bounce you get with a hybrid or innerspring mattress, but its benefit is how the memory layer hugs the body while still providing support from the core layer of foam. Because of this, professional reviewers say the Leesa Original is ideal for most back and side sleepers, as well as for stomach sleepers that have a slim build.

Benefits of the Leesa Original mattress include its contouring foam to provide comfort and reduce pressure points, a competitive price that is lower in cost than other Best Mattresses of 2021 we rated, and its versatility as a mattress that suits most types of sleepers. Plus, because of the all-foam construction, there is little to no motion transfer, which means you won’t feel a restless bed partner getting in and out of bed or shifting positions.

Unlike other competing Best Foam Mattresses of 2021, the Leesa Original does not contain proprietary cooling ingredients in its foam materials, such as the Zinus Cooling Gel Foam Mattress, with “swirl foam” that is designed to cool, and green tea infused in the foam to naturally reduces odors. The Leesa mattress also has no edge support system, so the edges may sink down when you sit or roll close to the sides of the mattress.

How Much Does the Leesa Original Mattress Cost?

The Leesa Original mattress costs $1,099 for a queen size, which is in line with other top-rated foam mattresses, and it’s one of the Best Budget Foam Mattresses of 2021, ranking No. 9. Leesa sells some bundles, such as its Preferred Bundle which includes a Leesa Original mattress, platform bed frame, and mattress protector. The company occasionally runs promotions, such as offering two down-alternative pillows for free with a mattress purchase.

What Is the Leesa Original Mattress Made Of?

The Leesa Original all-foam mattress is constructed from three layers, starting with a 6-inch layer of high-density foam that creates a stable base. On top of this is 2 inches of memory foam that conforms to the body and relieves pressure points like the shoulders, hips, and knees. Because of this, the Leesa Original accommodates many side, back, and stomach sleepers. However, its materials are not as cooling as competing foam mattresses that made our list of Best Cooling Mattresses of 2021.

Leesa Original vs. Tuft & Needle Mint Mattress

The Leesa Original and Tuft & Needle Mint mattresses both rank as a Best Foam Mattress of 2021. Both have three layers of foam, but key benefits to Tuft & Needle (the No. 1 Best Foam Mattress) are its top layer of open-cell foam that is responsive and contains cooling graphite, and a second layer with cooling gel beads. Its Adaptive Foam is durable, breathable, and contours to the body to alleviate pressure points while providing support from a bottom core layer. The Leesa Original contains a second layer of conforming memory foam, but it lacks the cooling technologies that Tuft & Needle includes in its Mint mattress. Also, the Tuft & Needle queen is lighter at 80 pounds versus 115 pounds for a Leesa Original queen, making it easier to unbox, handle, and set up.

Leesa Original vs. Casper Original Foam

A key benefit and competitive advantage of the Casper Original Foam mattress is its zoned support, which divides foam into three zones with different firmness levels to keep the spine properly aligned. Its top layer is a proprietary perforated foam designed to promote airflow and limit the amount of heat that gets trapped in the mattress. If sustainability is important to you, each Casper mattress cover includes material from 57 recycled bottles.

Leesa is also an eco-conscious company with its B Corporation certification for following certain environmental and social standards. They are priced comparably, with Casper costing $4 less than the $1,099 Leesa Original queen mattress. But you’ll get more cooling technology and ergonomic support with the Casper, which rated higher in our overall Best Mattress of 2021 rating, coming in at No. 6 versus No. 26 for the Leesa Original.

Mattresses Available From Leesa

Leesa was founded in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Its mattress lineup includes both foam and hybrid mattresses. Leesa is a Certified B Corporation, meaning that it’s required to manage itself in a way that has a positive impact on its customers, the environment, the community, and its employees.

Leesa Studio Mattress

Available mattress sizes:

The Leesa Studio Mattress is a three-layer, all-foam mattress and the least expensive of the four Leesa models. It has a top layer of memory foam, a middle layer of responsive foam, and a thick foam base.

At the top is a 1.5-inch layer of contouring memory foam. This is important for side sleepers and those who enjoy the feeling of sinking into their bed. The foam is described as breathable, although it isn’t hole-punched for airflow like some of the more expensive Leesa models. Following the memory foam layer is a 1.5-inch layer of pressure-relieving foam designed to soothe joint and back pain. The Leesa Studio has a 7-inch core layer that gives the mattress additional support and durability. It costs $699 for a queen mattress.

Leesa Original Mattress

Available mattress sizes:

The Leesa Original is an all-foam mattress that is 10 inches thick. Its three layers start with a 2-inch top foam layer designed to aid in cooling. This is followed by a 2-inch layer of memory foam that provides pressure relief and helps minimize motion transfer. Underneath is a 6-inch foam base for support.

The Leesa Original is one of two all-foam mattresses in Leesa’s lineup and one of the least expensive Leesa mattresses at $1,099 for a queen.

Leesa Hybrid Mattress

Available mattress sizes:

The Hybrid is, as its name suggests, a hybrid mattress consisting of both an innerspring layer and several foam layers. It’s the least expensive hybrid mattress that Leesa sells. There are five layers: four layers of foam and a layer of more than 1,000 pocketed springs. The top 1.5-inch layer of foam provides comfort and is designed to transfer heat away from the body. Next is a 1.5-inch layer of memory foam that cradles pressure points like shoulders and hips, which is especially helpful for side sleepers. At $1,799 for a queen, the Leesa Hybrid has a firmness level between five and seven, which equates to a medium or medium-firm feel.

Leesa Legend Mattress

Available mattress sizes:

The Legend mattress is a hybrid and Leesa’s top-of-the-line model. It’s a six-layer mattress consisting of a layer of springs, four layers of foam, and a hybrid layer that includes both foam and what Leesa calls micro-pocket springs.

At the top is a 1-inch layer of “hole-punched” comfort foam. The holes are there to add to breathability, which should contribute to a cooler sleep. Then there’s a 1-inch layer of memory foam. The next 1.5-inch layer includes both micro-pocket springs and foam, with the springs located towards the foot and head of the mattress and the foam in the middle. The 6-inch innerspring layer provides edge support and is sandwiched between two layers of 1-inch foam that give the mattress additional support.

The Legend is the most expensive model in Leesa’s lineup at $2,299 for a queen.

Leesa FAQ

What Is a Leesa Mattress?

A Leesa mattress is a mattress-in-a-box you can buy online directly from the company. Leesa sells four mattresses: the Leesa Original, Leesa Hybrid, Leesa Legend, and Leesa Studio. All Leesa mattresses are CertiPUR-US certified to not contain harmful substances such as formaldehyde, which is sometimes used as a fire retardant in textiles.

FirmnessMedium

Leesa mattresses can be purchased online and in traditional brick-and-mortar stores. Leesa sells mattresses directly to consumers through its website. It also has partnerships with West Elm, Pottery Barn, and Macy’s, so customers can try the products in person before purchasing.

Leesa offers free shipping and delivers its mattresses via FedEx Ground. Before your mattress is shipped, Leesa recommends looking into a service called FedEx Delivery Manager, which gives you more options in terms of where and when your mattress can be delivered and provides delivery alerts.

For an extra fee of $150, Leesa offers white glove delivery. This service includes a team to deliver your mattress, set it up where you choose, take care of the packaging, and remove your old mattress.

How Long Does a Leesa Mattress Last?

Leesa Warranty: 10-year warranty

Leesa mattresses come with a 10-year, non-prorated warranty, which is comparable to warranties from brands like Tempur-Pedic, Sealy, and Purple. The warranty applies to the original purchaser, starts on the date of purchase, and isn’t transferable. It covers physical flaws affecting the mattress and mattress cover, but it doesn’t cover wear and tear or issues that result if you don’t use the recommended base or foundation. Both the warranty and 100-night trial are voided the moment the mattress leaves the U.S., Canada, or the U.K.

How to Return a Leesa Mattress

Leesa Trial Period: 100-day sleep trial

All Leesa mattresses come with a 100-night in-home trial period. Leesa encourages customers to give their new mattress at least 30 days before contacting customer service about a return. If you want to return your mattress after trying it for a month, Leesa will issue a full refund minus any discounts you received and a $49 “Bed Adoption Fee.” This fee is $100 if you live in Alaska or Hawaii. When possible, Leesa donates returned mattresses to charitable organizations that serve children and uses the adoption fee to help locate appropriate homes for the mattresses and cover delivery expenses.

To return a mattress, contact Leesa’s customer service, which will schedule a pickup. Once the pickup is verified, Leesa will refund your money.

How Long Does It Take for a Leesa Mattress to Expand?

The Leesa Original and Hybrid take up to an hour to expand and can be slept on after that. Leesa suggests waiting four hours for better expansion and to give the mattress 24 hours for optimum expansion.

Do Leesa Mattresses Smell?

No. Leesa mattresses are made with foam that is CertiPUR-US certified, so they are free from hazardous chemicals. However, foam mattresses generally produce an odor when new. Leesa says that any smell should dissipate shortly after setting up your new mattress.

Do Leesa Mattresses Need a Box Spring?

No, Leesa mattresses don’t require a box spring. The company does recommend some sort of solid foundation, whether it’s a platform bed, bunkie board on top of a box spring, or a solid box foundation. A bunkie board is made of plywood or particleboard that’s covered in fabric and sometimes includes added padding. Leesa also sells appropriate bed frames, foundations, and adjustable bases. Slats will work if they’re 2-3 inches wide and no more than 3 inches apart. If slats are used, they should be neither flexible nor curved, as that can impact how the mattress feels and over time it may damage it.
