Leesa mattress in check

Have you already thought about how well your mattress actually suits you and whether it meets your requirements? After all, you spend around a third of your life sleeping and it should go without saying that you pay a lot of attention to the mattress. If you save here and choose a version that does not suit your sleep type, this will manifest itself in back pain and other complaints.

In the USA, the Leesa mattress is one of the most popular models. It is one of the higher-priced variants, but impresses with its very good sleeping comfort and is very popular with users.

Are you curious as to whether the Leesa mattress will convince you and contribute to a higher quality of sleep? Then you will find out in this detailed check whether the investment is worthwhile and how you can benefit from it.

The Leesa mattress was originally designed for the US market. It corresponds to the modern “one-fits-all” mattresses , which are particularly adaptable. The advantage of these designs is that they adapt to every body and, above all, to sleep patterns.

Because hardly any person will simply remain rigid in a sleeping position. Not only would this be inconvenient, but it would also be quite unusual. It is perfectly normal for us to move around during the night and to wake up in a different position in the morning from when we fell asleep.

If you move around a lot, you could first fall asleep on your side, but wake up on your back. Usually the mattress is chosen according to the sleeping type. This means that a mattress is better suited for back sleepers, for example. This guarantees a high level of comfort, but the mattress is tailored to a particular type of sleep and is not very flexible.

The Leesa mattress is based on a multi-layer structure so that your back is continuously relieved during the night . Different foams are combined to ensure high flexibility and stability. It is precisely this combination of adaptability and support that presents manufacturers with major challenges.

The Leesa mattress is available in sizes from 90x200cm to 180x200cm. This makes it wonderfully suitable as a mattress for your child. Due to the high adaptability, the mattress practically grows with the child and guarantees a high level of comfort for every stage of growth.

The mattress is made in Germany and the company is aware of its social responsibility. For every 10 mattresses sold, one mattress is donated to an aid organization . As a buyer, you are helping people in need get a better night’s sleep.

You can find out in the following description whether the high requirements for flexible sleep are met and how the Leesa mattress is designed in detail .


Common mattresses in the lower price segment are equipped with a single layer. In most cases, a layer of foam is used to support the back. While this may be convenient in many cases, it hardly does justice to the different movements during the night. Therefore, the Leesa mattress relies on a combination of several materials in order to adapt flexibly to your back.


The basis of the mattress is an approx. 15 cm thick layer of support foam. Above all, this gives the mattress its high stability and relieves the back. With a thickness of 15cm, it is relatively generous and takes the weight ideally. The stability is also guaranteed over the entire surface. Even on the edge of the bed, the foam will do a good job and support your back.

In addition to stability, the mattress should be flexible in order to be able to react to the different loads on the body. For this purpose, a memory foam is placed in the middle layer . This layer is around 5cm thick and ensures a high level of comfort. If a high level of sleeping comfort is important to you, you may have heard of memory foam pillows . These have similar properties and are very popular. The memory foam deforms under the strain on the body and adapts perfectly to your spine. After the load, it goes back to its original position so that there are no hollows or other signs of use.

Not only comfort and support are important for a good sleep feeling. A high-quality mattress should also meet the sleeping climate and other properties for allergy sufferers. In order to meet these requirements, the Leesa mattress uses Avena foam in the top layer. This material is patented by the manufacturer and ensures pleasant cooling. This means that you will sweat less and this is not beneficial for your own sleeping comfort, but deprives mites of their livelihood. If you suffer from a house dust allergy, you will particularly appreciate this situation, because mites will hardly feel comfortable in the Leesa mattress and your symptoms will significantly decrease.

In total, the three layers are around 25cm high. This makes the mattress one of the higher versions and allows you to get on comfortably. This is useful if you have joint pain and find it difficult to get up in the morning.



Although the mattress takes the weight of your body, the cover is exposed to everyday environmental influences. Even if the mattress cools, you will still sweat and the movements are also a burden.

The mattress cover made of 100% polyester therefore serves as protection . This is gray with a light stripe design. So it doesn’t look as clinically white as most references.

It feels very soft and of high quality . It joins the wonderful sleep feeling of the convincing mattress. In order to support breathability, there is an elaborate knitting of material. The cover thus develops a cooling effect and ensures maximum comfort.

The disadvantage, however, is that the cover must not be machine washed. Hand washing is the order of the day if the cover should ever get stained.


After introducing the general properties, you should now find out how it could feel. Because even the high quality of the structure is no guarantee that the Leesa mattress will suit you. Nevertheless, it should also be said here that it is possible to test the mattress for 100 days . This means you don’t take any risks when buying online and you can send the mattress back if you don’t like it.


The 15cm thick layer of foam is mainly responsible for the degree of hardness The overlying foams are more responsible for flexibility and adaptability.

The foam used is one of the medium to harder variants. This gives you a mattress that supports your back well and offers high stability.

The hardness can be classified in a range from H2 to H3. This is optimal for a body weight of 60 to 110 kilograms. This may be a bit too hard for young children, but teenagers can already lie comfortably on this mattress.

The somewhat firmer version is noticeably beneficial for your back. If you suffer from back pain, the Leesa mattress will help to relieve the spine and relieve pain.


The idea behind this design is that as many body shapes and weight classes as possible can sleep optimally . This is achieved with the structure shown and so partners can use this mattress without having to make compromises. Both partners get their money’s worth regardless of which position they sleep in.

Regardless of whether you sleep on your stomach, back or side, the Leesa mattress adapts perfectly to the load. This provides wonderful support for the spine .

The stability continues over the entire surface. The edges and the middle of the mattress are also designed to be stable and do not appear saggy after a certain period of use.

The choice of the subsurface is also variable. The Leesa mattress can be placed on standard metal or wooden bed frames as well as on adjustable bed frames and slatted frames. The mattress also makes a good impression on a box spring bed and contributes to the high quality of sleep.


Foam mattresses tend to be a little warmer . This can lead to excessive perspiration and is perceived as uncomfortable.

To prevent this, the upper foams are designed to be breathable . The Avena foam also has ventilation holes through which air circulation is ensured. This will make you less sweaty. Spring core mattresses are cooler in comparison, but as a foam mattress, the Leesa version is designed in such a way that the heat is not stored in the material.


You are in close contact with the mattress during the night. It should therefore be ensured that the materials used are kind to the skin and do not cause any adverse effects.

The individual materials that are used in the Leesa mattress have been awarded the Oeko-Tex seal. This means that there are no harmful substances and you can use the mattress without hesitation.

The production also takes place in Germany and is subject to stringent control. This enables safe use for your child and allergy sufferers are not exposed to any additional risk.

The high level of social responsibility has earned Leesa a “B Corp Company” award . This seal is awarded to special companies that are socially committed and act responsibly.


If you are curious and want to test the sleep feeling of this mattress yourself, it doesn’t take that long until it arrives in your bedroom. The delivery time is around a week. The Leesa mattress is not available from specialist retailers, but is sold through the well-known online shops.

The mattress is initially rolled up in a practical box. After unpacking, it fills with air within a few minutes and takes on its final shape. Then it can start and the 100 rehearsal nights begin.

If the mattress does not meet your expectations, you can simply return it. The manufacturer is responsible for the collection and assumes all costs. So you do not take any risk when buying and you can convince yourself of the quality.

There may be a faint odor when it is unpacked for the first time . However, this disappears after a few hours if you leave the mattress in a well-ventilated room.


Sleep is highly variable and therefore some manufacturers are no longer trying to adapt the mattresses to a certain type of sleep, but to make them flexible. A special multi-layer structure should ensure that the body is optimally supported in every sleeping position.

Similar to the Casper or Emma One mattress, the Leesa mattress is also equipped with a combination of different foams . These ensure that the spine is optimally supported in every position and that back pain disappears.

If you want a particularly high-quality mattress , you are in very good hands with Leesa. The 10 year guarantee is a clear indication of how much confidence the manufacturer has in this mattress.

Accordingly, the price-performance ratio is also remarkable and you get a luxury mattress that gives you a completely new sleep feeling.

Since I was a child, I have suffered from a house dust allergy, severely affecting me. I felt the effects both while exercising and while sleeping. Constant sneezing after getting up and difficult breathing were the consequences. The allergy has also developed into asthma, which is still a sporting restriction today.
