Whenever we think of good sleep, we think of a good bed and a comfortable mattress. Sleep is the most important thing in our lives and sound sleep is a key to a healthy brain and body. After a whole long day of work, 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep gives us energy and charges our body and mind for the next day’s work. I personally need 7-8 hours of sleep every day and then only I feel fresh and energized the next day. I am one of those persons who cannot sleep on a messy bed and is very choosy when it comes to sleeping. A clean bed with a tucked bedsheet on the best mattress is what gives me a sound and a deep sleep.
The most important thing when it comes to a short power nap or 8 hours of full deep sleep is the mattress. It is very important at least for me that I sleep in a good mattress and I am sure its a very basic yet important necessity for everybody. While some people prefer a hard mattress, some prefer softer ones but the most widely used mattress are the ones which are neither too hard nor too soft. I personally prefer such mattress which is moderate in firmness as they are best for every body type and adjusts the body in every type of sleeping positions.
My search for the best Mattress
My mattress was not as firm and comfortable as I used to be as I had been using the same mattress for the last 5 years and it was a time to change it. I was ready to spend some extra bucks this time but I wanted the best mattress in the country as I had been experiencing back pain on my previous mattress. The first thing I did before beginning my research for the best mattress was by contacting my friends who had recently purchased any mattress. Since I was looking for a big size mattress for I and my wife, I decided to ignore people who were single.
This search did not turn out to be much fruitful for me as most of my friends are single and amongst few friends who were married, only 1 or 2 had purchased a new mattress recently. I enquired about the mattress and took their suggestions as well and moved on. One name that kept coming in discussion for a good mattress was Leesa mattress. One of my friends had purchased Leesa mattress king size and he seemed very much satisfied with it. I could only speak to him on the phone as he was not available in the city but the things he told me about Leesa Mattress were quite impressive.
Visiting the official website
By the time I decided to buy a mattress for myself, I was quite impressed with Leesa Mattress as I got to contact few people who had purchased it recently. But I don’t believe in people’s suggestions easily and like to do researches on my part before going ahead for the purchase. It is not just the matter of a mattress, the researcher inside me pings me every now and then to proper research before buying even a small needle.
Anyways, after taking suggestions from people, I was searching for the mattress online on a Saturday evening and I came across the website of Leesa Mattress. Since I was already impressed by the things I heard from people about Leesa Mattress, I decided to browse through the website to know more about it, especially the specifications and prices and offers or discounts if any.
The official website of the Leesa Mattress is full of information and trust me, you don’t have to ask or go anywhere else to find out its specifications and specialties. The website says that the Leesa Mattress has been given 13000 five star reviews which is huge. One of the best things about the Leesa Mattress, as given in their website, is that out of the 40 mattresses that got tested, Leesa was ranked at the number one spot. Also, according to the website, if you are a back or side sleeper, this mattress was the best for you.
Research on Amazon website
The website I visited for Leesa Mattress was full of praises and appreciations and that was quite obvious as nobody writes bad things about their products in their own websites. I am sure if there was no such researcher present in me, I would have surely got convinced merely by looking at the website but I wasn’t. The beautifully designed website with loads of information and good ratings were not enough to impress me so I decided to visit a website where people put actually reviews and not biased ones.
Amazon is a trusted website in the US and around the world and I have been shopping from Amazon since ages. First of all I was not sure that I would find Leesa Mattress on Amazon or not but one thing which I was sure about was, if Leesa Mattress was listed on Amazon, I would be able to see unbiased reviews of the mattress which would surely help me to take a decision whether I should buy it or not.
When I landed on the Amazon website and searched for Leesa mattress full size, I found it on the website and I was so happy. Now I was assured that all the positive and negative unbiased reviews on the mattress will help me make a purchasing decision. There was an option to purchase the mattress online through Amazon and each and every tiny detail about Leesa was mentioned there. The number of sizes it came in, price of each size, pictures, seller name who sells it on Amazon, reviews and star ratings on the mattress. This information was good enough for me to make a decision as the customer reviews were not biased and the information was very detailed.
Types of Leesa Mattress
When I had a chance to look into the website of Leesa, they had mentioned mainly 2 types of mattresses. One with the name Leesa Mattress and other with the name Leesa Hybrid Mattress. There was a considerable difference in the prices of both the mattress so it was very important to first decide, which one I wanted based on the specifications provided. No matter if a product is cheap or costly, you must always purchase what is best suited to your needs as costly products are not always better, at least in some cases. The specifications, price and the features of both the mattress will be discussed so that you don’t have to visit different websites searching for them. These prices may vary when you buy but specifications are taken from a different website and will be similar more or less.
Leesa Foam Mattress
Both the mattresses are from Leesa but they have named this variant of Mattress as Leesa Foam Mattress separately. As the name suggests, this mattress is an all foam mattress and is suitable for almost everybody. The price of this mattress starts at $535 (at the time of writing this) which is very much affordable and probably the best mattress you will get at this price range in the USA. The price varies with the size you choose. This is the best seller mattress from Leesa and thousands of customers have written positive things about it on Amazon. The uniform distribution of foam throughout the mattress gives a balance to your body and you never feel like you have completely sunk in. I could personally say this because I had a chance to sit on it for an hour as my friend had purchased it and let me tell you that it was super comfortable. Some of the specifications which I could search from different websites are listed
- The 10 inches of foam construction makes this mattress very soft and comfortable
- No matter what is your body type and your sleeping style, Leesa Foam Mattress adapts easily to it
- The enhanced cooling top layer keeps the mattress cooler even in summers and even when you sleep on it for long hours.

Leesa Hybrid Mattress
Leesa Hybrid is the luxury variant of Leesa Mattress and if you are ready to spend some extra bucks for some extra relief, you can surely go with the hybrid mattress. It is one of the best mattresses in the market and you will find it in many of the big brand hotels as it is designed for the utmost comfort and gives you a perfect and sound sleep. The price of the Hybrid variant starts with $985 (obviously at the time of writing this) which is very costly but when you see the specifications, this will not seem costlier at all. The price obviously varies with the size of the mattress. It all depends on your budget and need which one you want to go for. Some specifications of Hybrid mattress are given below
- Unlike the foam variant, the hybrid mattress is 11 inches thick and is more comfortable and soft as compared to the former variant.

My personal experience
By the time I completed my research on the Leesa mattress, I was completely sure which variant and size I had to buy. Since I have already mentioned that Amazon is the website I trust the most when it comes to online shopping, I placed an order with Amazon for King size Hybrid mattress. One of the best things about Leesa Mattresses which I personally liked is the fact that they are made in the USA and hence are shipped and delivered quickly to your location which happened in my case as well.
I had a nap on the hybrid mattress before at my friend’s place but the mattress got delivered to at the later evening and I came back from the work earlier because I was so excited to sleep on it. When I came back, my wife was already sleeping on it and I could see the comfort on her face. When I lied down on the mattress for the first time, the back and the edge support it had was just exceptional.
For the first 20-36 hours, the mattress felt a bit firmer as it was very new and raw but after a day or two, it became extremely comfortable and softer as I expected. Since the mattress was fully decompressed and the springs were quite freed up by now, I could feel the elasticity in the foam. The mattress was neither too firm nor too soft and I would rate it 7 out of 10 which is quite good. I don’t sleep on a single position whole night and keep on changing positions from back to stomach and this mattress adjusted all my positions very well. I would recommend this mattress to everyone if they have a slightly high budget.
You will find the option to buy toppers with all the premium mattress companies but there is no such case with Leesa mattress as you will not find Leesa mattress topper neither on their website nor on Amazon. Toppers are the extra layer of comfort sheets that you can fix on your mattress to have some extra comfort, coolness and enhanced body contouring but since they cost a lot, people hardly purchase it and this is the reason Leesa does not make it. To be very frank, if you have purchased the hybrid variant of Leesa Mattress, you will never feel the need for the topper as it is the most comfortable mattress in the market.
Leesa vs Casper
When it comes to competitors, Casper is the one that stands close to Leesa mattress in terms of price, comfort, and popularity. Both the mattresses are hybrid mattresses which means both use different layers and types of foam for optimal comfort and support. We will compare both the mattress on the basis of some of the basic specifications below.
While Leesa mattress uses 2 layers of foam, Casper uses 4 layers of foam but the 2 layers used in Leesa is very much soft and comfortable as compared to the 4 layers in the former because of the 6 inches support foam used in Leesa.
Cover and looks
Casper cover is made of 2-tone with all white on the top and grey on the sides. On the other hand, Leesa’s cover is made of 100% polyester fabric and is a 4-bar design which makes it look trendy unlike Casper which looks traditional.
When it comes to firmness, both the mattress does not differ from each other much. While I would rate Casper 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, it would be 7 out of 10 for Leesa mattress.
Sinkage and feel
I also tested Casper before purchasing Leesa and it felt that in comparison to Leesa, the sinkage was deeper in Casper which might be uncomfortable for few people. This is also the reason why Leesa mattress feels slightly more comfortable than Casper mattress.
When it comes to price, Casper is costlier as compared to Leesa mattress and you have all the reasons to go for Leesa because it has an upper hand in most of the specifications including its price.
With the changing and growing online mattress industry, you feel quite confused while purchasing mattresses and I am sure this article will surely give you some insights about Leesa mattress and its comparison with other premium mattresses. When it comes to sleep and comfort never compromise with it and purchase the best product that is available in the market as good sleep is the key to a healthy mind and body.
