Buying a mattress is a big investment, but buying one online is something anyone would lose sleep over. There's no way to truly test a mattress without jumping on each one in a showroom or spending a ton of money and time upfront. And if you buy one and decide you don't like it — well, that's a logistical nightmare no one wants.

As product testers who've tested more than 50 mattresses from traditional and direct-to-consumer brands alike, we've developed criteria to objectively assess and rank mattresses on their motion isolation, breathability, edge support, and more. In each test, a Leesa mattress usually wins out over the others, earning it the top spot in many of our buying guides.

What is Leesa?

Leesa launched in 2015 to a crowded direct-to-consumer mattress industry and we've been covering it since 2016. Each mattress is made in the US and comes with a 10-year warranty, a 100-night trial, and free contactless delivery in light of the novel coronavirus pandemic. 

Leesa is B-Corp certified, which means it meets certain environmental standards such as using recycled and natural materials, and without harmful materials like ozone depleters and flame retardants. It also means Leesa meets social standards like giving back to the community. A mattress is donated for every 10 mattresses sold, and since 2015, it's donated more than 36,000 mattresses to people in need, and has also donated mattresses, bed frames, and more to hospitals in need.

Below, you'll find short reviews of everything we've tested (so far) with links to read the full review, plus comparisons to competitive brands and any current deals. We're currently testing the Leesa Legend and we'll report back with our experiences soon.

Leesa Hybrid

Read our full review here.

Leesa's Hybrid mattress is the best mattress in our buying guide because it balances firm support with cloud-like softness and minimal motion transfer.

It combines several types of foam with spring coils for comfort and breathability. Set up takes around 15 minutes but it takes a few hours for the mattress to fully expand, so be sure to time it correctly if you want to take an afternoon nap.

To test motion transfer, our reviewer dropped a 20-pound weight about three feet above the bed to see if a can of sparkling water would move — it never even shifted. Our tester also noted that the mattress didn't trap body heat, so it's ideal for hot and light sleepers alike.  

Leesa Original

Read our full review here.

In 2018, Leesa updated its all-foam Original mattress to better support joints and alleviate pressure for side sleepers. Our reviewer tested both iterations (here's the review for the older Original) and thought that the 2018 version supported her shoulders and hips much better. 

The mattress has three layers — a breathable top layer, a memory foam middle that contours around your body, and a supportive bottom layer. These all add up to a 10-inch mattress that offers relief and support for side sleepers.

Leesa Studio

Read our full review here.

If you're looking for the best balance of value, comfort, and support, Leesa's Studio mattress might be your best option. The three layers of foam provided solid motion isolation and pressure relief, especially for our side-sleeping tester.

The Studio is a medium-firm mattress but the edge support left much to be desired — the foam sagged significantly. Solo sleepers might not mind since they're not sharing a bed, but couples might want to get a large bed like a King to avoid falling off during the night.

In terms of price, the mattress is significantly less expensive than other Leesa mattresses and our tester didn't think there was any compromise in terms of support or comfort. The Studio would be a great mattress for anyone on a budget, moving into their first apartment, or needing to furnish a guest room.

 

Leesa Hybrid Pillow

Read our full review here.

Fans of the Hybrid mattress would love the Hybrid Pillow, which can be customized in four different ways. 

Unlike traditional pillows that resemble a slab of memory foam or a bag of feathers, this customizable pillow has a down-like quilted pocket layer on one side and a firmer gel layer on the other. There's also an insert between the two layers that can be removed to adjust the support level, and an always cool-to-the-touch fabric containing chilling fibers that surround the whole thing. 

It's more complex than a pillow needs to be in terms of construction, but it's worth it for anyone who values the coolness factor and adjustable features.

Leesa Adjustable Base Bed Frame

Read our full review here.

While it doesn't have all the bells and whistles that some other adjustable bases do (like a USB charging port or a massaging option), Leesa's Adjustable Base Bed Frame has a whisper-quiet motor that will let you adjust your sleeping position without disturbing your partner (or your cat).

The adjustable bed frame fits any mattress — Leesa or otherwise — and comes with a remote control so you can adjust the foot and head easily. For anyone who wakes up in the middle of the night, there's a handy button on the remote that controls a light that's under the bed.

During our reviewer's testing, she was able to make the most minute adjustments to alleviate pressure on her joints.

How Leesa compares to other mattress brands
