I recently received another popular mattress in a box, the Leesa mattress which you might have seen being advertised on TV during the summer. Leesa is an American company with huge success overseas that have entered the UK market 3 years ago, in 2015. They make a foam mattress that is constructed here in Britain and is endorsed by the swimming legend, Michael Phelps! One of my friends recently bought it so I was really keen to try this myself. The mattress came few weeks ago so it was about time that I write the full review.


Leesa is made of a total of 3 layers and the mattress cover . The 3 layers are the following:

  • Top Layer: A 5cm Cooling Avena foam layer which is designed to keep the mattress in the right temperature.
  • Middle Layer: A 5cm memory foam layer which is designed to provide your body with pressure relief during sleep.
  • Bottom Layer: A 15cm dense core support foam layer which adds strength to the mattress and works as the base of the Leesa mattress.

The mattress has a total thickness of 25cm including the cover. Leesa uses polyester to make the cover which helps the mattress breath during the night and allows airflow. The cover is removable and it is very easy to clean which is always a good thing. It comes in a light grey colour with four white bars which is the Leesa branding. I really like the design as it’s both young and classy. Overall, I like the polyester approach. It is geared more towards people that they don’t want to use mattress covers and they like things that are easy to maintain, just like myself!



The Leesa mattress feels like a medium to firm mattress so it’s a mattress that will suit most sleepers. Most companies  these days choose this approach to fit most needs and Leesa does the same. If we put this to a firmness scale, with 10 being very firm, I would say that Leesa is a 6.5. So as always, I am going to talk about the different sleeping positions and how this mattress performed.

Starting from the back position, I felt well supported and I did feel the hugging effect from the memory foam. Moreover, I felt a nice natural bounce which I personally like. This is a good element of all good memory foam mattresses. Turning to the side position, the mattress maintained its shape and the sinkage was not that high so I felt that my spine was aligned properly. This is really good as the side position can be a tricky one. Finally, turning to the stomach position I had a good body sinkage which made me feel very comfortable and in general the support from the mattress was really good.

Moving to the the edge of the mattress, Leesa maintained it’s shape and in general I felt lying on a very solid construction. This makes Leesa a good choice for couples which is great news! Overall, the Leesa mattress did a good job in all the sleeping positions with the best one being the side one. It is a difficult position for every mattress as the weight is concentrated in a small surface and the sinkage needs to be the right one for good spine alignment. So I definitely think that Leesa did really well here.

The Leesa mattress is made of three foam layers.


Like most of the mattresses these days, you can place the Leesa mattress on any surface as long as it’s flat. That means that you can use your current bed base or just place it on the floor which is the norm these days here in London! If you use a slatted base, make sure there are enough slats so your mattress performs at its best.  The mattress is available in a number of sizes, including EU sizes, so don’t worry if you have an IKEA bed frame like myself.


The Leesa mattress is delivered in a white carton box like all mattresses of this kind. They offer a free delivery service for all sizes which is great! The mattress arrived after 6 working days. This is because Leesa builds your mattress after you have placed your order and ships it with UPS. The courier was polite and very helpful. Overall, I was happy with the service that I received so no complaints here.


Leesa comes with a 10 year warranty which is quite standard these days. So no need to worry at all about the quality of this mattress. On top, you have 100 nights to decide whether you want to keep this mattress or not. If you are not happy, they will come to collect it and refund you the full amount. So overall, Leesa is doing really well on this end.


Leesa offer a number of sizes to cover your needs. The smallest size (UK Single) costs £399 with the biggest (UK Super King) selling for £769. In total they are 8 sizes available.

Finishing this Leesa mattress review I would like to share my final thoughts with you. There are many choices out there so I will give you the main reasons you should buy this one. In summary, the Leesa mattress is a great choice for everyone who is looking for:

  • A foam mattress which performs really well in all sleeping positions and has good edge support. 
  • A mattress which feels medium to firm and doesn’t get hot during the night due to the top Avena foam layer. 
  • A mattress designed in the US but made in the UK that comes with a great customer service and warranty.

If you are looking for a different mattress that combines the latex and memory foam technologies, then the Leesa mattress should be definitely in your list. It’s a mattress that is ideal for side sleepers but performs well for every position. Overall, a high quality mattress and a great choice!
