Leesa Mattress Review

The Leesa is a hybrid foam mattress. That means it is designed with different layers of foam in varying thickness and positions to achieve the exceptional comfort and support. With this Leesa mattress, it is constructed from 3 different layers of foam.


Top Layer (comfort) – this layer is constructed from 2.0″ of Avena foam. Avena is a patented foam of Leesa, which can be used an alternative to latex. As such, it reacts as the same way as latex does. It has great bounce, comfort, and cooler than traditional foams.  The nice thing is Avena has greater durability than latex.

Middle Layer (support) – this layer is constructed from 2.0″ of memory foam. This layer is designed to provide an exceptional support, pressure relief, and deep compression stability for the mattress. When it is placed under Avena foam, the mattress shows less tendency to absorb and retain heat than placing it on the top of mattress. This means the design of Leesa mattress provides cooler feel for sleepers.

Bottom Layer (foundational) – this layer is constructed from 6.0″ of high density support foam. Due to this high density, this foam acts as a strong foundation for the mattress and supports the above layers.

The cover is constructed from a poly-lycra blend fabric. This unique blend makes the fabric really soft, stretchy and durable. This material is also comparable to those usually used in sportswear. Along with that, it is fairly thick, which provides an extra cushion and softness to the mattress. In addition, the cover is cut from single piece of woven fabric and it is almost 100% seamless.

Aesthetically, the look of Leesa’s cover comes in 4-bar design on the grey scheme. This makes it unique and nice.

Overall this mattress can provide the consistent support and comfort. When you first lie down on this mattress, the instant feel is the softness of Avena foam, it is nice to touch. The next feel is the contour and hug feel of the foam, it also lets you sunk a bit down to the mattress. Along with that, the quick responsiveness of Avena foam allows the mattress to easily adjust to your movements and body changes.

In addition, due to the consistent support, the mattress allow your spine to maintain in proper alignment. What else? Is this a best mattress for heavy sleepers? Though Leesa claims that this mattress is able to support up to 300 pounds and couples up to 600 pounds, it is better to consider when choosing this mattress for heavy sleepers. Personally, it is best to use this mattress for sleepers with average weights. What about heat retention? Though this mattress doesn’t pair with cooling gel, it is better at providing cooling feel than memory foam mattresses.

The Tempurpedic Cloud Supreme Breeze is constructed from a blend of polyester (94%) and spandex (6%). it is thin but well-made. Along with that, the unique blend makes it soft, which provides the comfortable feel for sleepers. More ideally, both the component contained in the fabric, and its thin thickness allows it to be highly breathable.

Tempurpedic Cloud Supreme Firmness – 5 out of 10, where 10 is the most firm

Due to this firmness, it tends to provide more hug feel and deeper sinkage, which may not provide enough supportive feel to certain types of sleepers like stomach sleepers and heavy sleepers. In addition, if you expect a mattress that can provide a pronounced bounce and responsiveness, Tempurpedic Cloud Supreme Breeze mattress wouldn’t be a best choice. The memory foam isn’t well-known for bounce and responsiveness.

What else? Though this mattress isn’t designed with cooling gel, which is usually used to reduce the heat retention in memory foam, it has the cover that contains the TEMPUR-Breeze material. This material helps regulate the body temperature, and makes sleepers feel cooler and more comfortable thorough the night.

Leesa VS. Tempurpedic Mattress, which one should you choose?

They are both made of high quality materials. Also, they are well-made and have nice looks. However, several differences in softness levels, and other feels can affect a purchasing decision. Here comes as recommendations for those who still sway between Leesa and Tempurpedic.

You should pick Leesa if:

A firmer feel – Leesa is designed to provide medium firmness, which lands at 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, while, Tempurpedic gets a bit softer level, at its 5 out of 10 on the firmness scale.

You expect a balanced feel – the comfort and support of Leesa is more consistent and balanced. It has a pronounced contour and bounce. Additionally, the firmness is not too soft or too firm.

You prefer a transparent details about the mattress – Leesa posts clear details about their mattresses on the company’s website. From there, you can easily find the materials used for making the mattress, the thickness and density of each layer, and other necessary details. Meanwhile, Tempurpedic is not as clear to their materials used for making the constructions.

You want a refund policy – this seems an obviously better choice. In case you don’t like the experience of the mattress, or else, you want to return it, Leesa will refund 100% money back, and you also get 100 nights to try it before having this decision. Meanwhile, many Tempurpedic retailers don’t offer this policy.

You should choose Tempurpedic if:

You are looking for a pronounced hug, sinkage, and contour – this mattress is fairly soft, but not the type of quicksand feel, meaning it can envelope your body and makes you feel the pronounced softness. Mostly side sleepers are those would prefer this softness.

Others – personally, the look of Tempurpedic is more modern and luxury than Leesa. In addition, the cover of Tempurpedic is thin, while Leesa’s cover is fairly thick. Thick or thin, each has its pros and cons. the thin cover helps improve the breathability, while thick cover makes it more durable, and adds slight cushion to the mattress.
