Sleeping on the Leesa Mattress
FIRMNESS AND SUPPORT
The Lessa is a 6 out of 10 in the firmness scale (10 being the firmest). Customers like how Lessa constructed this mattress to feel. The top layer of Avena foam blends well with the memory foam beneath. The result is a slightly firmer bed that still has the right amount of comfort.
When it comes to support, the Leesa won’t let you down. The two top layers rest on 6 inches of high-density foam. The result is a comfortable sleep that still supports your side and lower back. We had trouble finding customers who had any soreness or pain after sleeping on the Lessa.
It is always good to know how much a mattress sinks. Soft beds or ones with too little support will often have a significant sinkage value. Beds that are too hard will have too little sinkage. Our research found that the Leesa comes in at 2″ of sinkage which is perfectly in the middle. The Lessa will have a little give, but won’t suck you down like quicksand.
COOLNESS AND OFF-GASSING
The Leesa utilizes two different technologies to keep the sleeper cool. The first is their poly-lycra mattress cover. Lycra fabric is primarily used in sports clothing, designed to keep the athlete dry and cool. The second technology is the Avena foam top layer. This material breathes during the night to pull heat away from the sleeper.
We have yet to find any customers who complained of any smell after unboxing. If there is a slight odor, it should completely dissipate in a few hours.
