Get a Great Night's Sleep with Leesa {review}

When you're a second (or third, or fourth) child you tend to inherit all kinds of hand-me-downs. Toys, clothes, shoes, books, mattresses. What? Maybe that's just us. When we moved Boo from his toddler bed into a regular twin, he inherited his older brother's bed frame and mattress. The mattress was already quite a few years old, but since our big guy is only with us part-time, it hadn't been heavily used. And it was a good mattress. But now it's going on 20 years old and Boo's been complaining about aches and pains in the mornings. And it's been a problem for my old bones as well. I often end up sleeping with my boy, whether because he has had a nightmare or because of my husband's snoring. And when I wake, my hips and lower back are killing me.

His mattress sucks.

Want some serendipity? Just about the time I'm starting my mattress research I get an email asking if I'd like to review a new, memory foam mattress available online. Would I?! It's like they were reading my mind. (Side note - Boo's word of the week is "Serendipitous." He came across it somewhere and asked what it meant. Now uses it whenever he can. So cute!)

A photo posted by Deb Coombs (@raisingmyboys) on is an online-only source for memory foam mattresses. They have six sizes, from Twin to California King, and all mattresses are made-to-order in the USA. What makes these mattresses special? Three layers of foam, each serving a different purpose - 6 inches of dense core support, 2 inches of memory foam for pressure relief and body contouring, and a 2 inch top layer of cooling Avena foam for air circulation. The whole thing is covered in a soft, seamless, polyester-lycra blend.

The Leesa website is very clean and easy to navigate, and the ordering process was very simple. (For the record - they take Paypal! You know I love that payment option.) Even better? They require only 3-5 business days to build, compress, box, and ship your mattress.  Mine arrived at my door just 7 days after I placed the order.

I have to admit, it was a little hard to believe this burrito was going to transform into a comfortable and high quality mattress.

And I've never had a mattress that came with instructions like this!
We set up our Leesa on the box spring on Boo's bed. It doesn't necessarily need a box spring though, just any solid or slatted foundation. As soon as we took it out of its plastic wrap we could hear and see the mattress expanding. It was pretty cool. Once it had expanded, we put on clean sheets and Boo gave it a test run, with two thumbs up.

This mattress is truly very comfortable. I like how the memory foam almost embraces my body and forms the perfect little nest. But I don't sink into the mattress; there's still enough firmness to support me and protect my back. I have slept in there with Boo on a number of occasions, and I have not had any hip pain with this mattress, which is a huge positive as compared to his old mattress. My lower back still gets a little stiff, but I think that's more about sharing a twin bed with a 10 year-old and a fair-sized dog. Again, the pain is nothing like I had been experiencing. This mattress gives excellent, comfortable, firm support.

I asked Boo for his review, and he gave a typically brief response. He likes it. It's comfortable. He feels he is sleeping more soundly.

One thing I will note - be careful of sitting or lying right on the edge of the Leesa mattress. These don't have stiff, structured sides like a traditional mattress, and you may feel yourself slipping to the floor.  The edge of the mattress will compress under your weight and make a little slide. This is really not an issue for sleeping, just something to keep in mind as you perch on the edge of the bed to kiss your kid good-night.

A few quick notes about other positives - shipping is free, every mattress comes with a 100 night in-home risk-free trial period, and Leesa donates one mattress for every 10 mattresses sold. Giving back is important to this company, and that means a lot to me when I'm making a purchasing decision.
