Leesa Mattress Review
Our new Leesa Mattress has been amazing over the last month where we’ve been testing it out, especially as the weather has been pretty hot to handle. With pregnancy comes so many discomforts and I knew I was going to have trouble sleeping and getting comfortable in the night so when I was offered a chance to review a Leesa Mattress I was so excited. Ordering the mattress was really simple and took a few minutes on the website. There was no charge for delivery either which was brilliant. We needed to order a king size Leesa Mattress for our bed and were told delivery usually took around seven days. I ordered late on the Monday evening and the mattress was with us on Thursday. When ordering mattresses before they have taken weeks to arrive so having this come to our door so quickly was just amazing. I was so excited to unbox, unroll and inflate, however, we waited until the Friday when Adam was home from work.
I will say that the Leesa mattress is heavy. I know that sounds a little strange but, well, mattresses aren’t light and Adam was quite surprised with how heavy it was getting it up the stairs and into our flat. I suppose, the size of the box didn’t really make you think of heavy because it comes so well rolled up. Once we had stripped off our bed and removed the old mattress we were ready to roll out. We did find getting it out the box a little bit challenging with not much room to move around but it didn’t take us long to get the mattress out of the box and onto our bed frame where, with the first unroll, you could see the mattress begin to inflate to it’s true size. There was a large amount of plastic wrap around the Leesa mattress too which needed to be removed. I would say position the mattress in the right place at the top of the bed and rolling it down to the bottom was the easiest way for us and made removing the plastic at the same time easier. Once unwrapped there was a bit of a musty smell that did take a bit of time to go so I would suggest leaving the mattress un covered to fully expand for the whole day if possible and then put the sheets back on at night. Leesa also have a sheet suitable for the mattress if you want the matching set.
All About Leesa Mattress
The Leesa Mattress is made here in the UK and is exclusive to being ordered online. Sizes start from a standard UK Single at £399 and go up to a UK Super King at £769. We went for the king size which is valued at £699 however, you can take advantage of a 100 night sleep trial and at any point during those first 100 nights you can have the mattress picked up and returned, for free, with a full refund. If possible Leesa will donate the mattress to a charity in your community or arrange collection with a recycling partner. You don’t have to roll it back up either. Leesa do recommend that you try the mattress for at least 30 days so that your body can adjust to the new mattress. I think providing extra time after this 30 days is really generous and the recycling scheme is fantastic. Leesa also recommend that the mattress is set up on a stable, rigid base. The Leesa mattress is made up of three different layers to provide ample comfort and support during the night and has a ten year warranty which is ideal for a decent mattress. The three layers are a dense core support of foam, a 5cm layer of memory foam and a 5cm Cooling Avena foam top layer to provide air flow and help keep you cooler during the night.
One thing I really love about the Leesa mattress is the social and community support. For every 10 mattresses sold in the UK one is donated to homeless shelters, refuges and crisis centres. As someone that once lived in a women’s refuge I can’t tell you how much this means to me and makes me really passionate about this company and wanting to share them with my readers. Any UK charity registered with the Charity Commission or OSCR can be considered for a donation. Every customer is also given a 100 night free trial and if at any time you decide the mattress isn’t for you, Leesa will arrange collecting the mattress and if it’s in a good, usable condition will donate it to a charity or refuge in the local area. If they can’t donate it they they will organise having it recycled. So far over 26,000+ mattresses have been donated.
What Do We Think?
I am so happy with our Leesa mattress and I have slept really well over the last month whilst we have been testing the mattress. I was starting to suffer on my hips during the night with my pregnancy but since swapping to our new mattress I have had virtually no discomfort when waking in the morning. The mattress is lovely and thick and quite high from the bed so getting out of bed as a pregnant lady is not particularly glamorous, however, waking up pain free and feeling well rested is amazing. I was a little concerned about the heat as so many people told me memory foam gets really hot however I haven’t experienced this at all and I think that’s down to the cooling layer as well as keeping our room as cool as we can. I really love the mattress and those first few nights sleep were absolute bliss for me. I am still waking up in the night but without cramp or pain which is just amazing. Getting a good night sleep in pregnancy can be really hard and our new Leesa mattress has made this really easy.
I am so impressed with the quality of the mattress, how comfortable it is and just so relieved that in this heat wave I have been sleeping so soundly. A decent mattress really does make a world of difference. Leesa have agreed to give my readers £100 off a Leesa Mattress using the code CANDYFLOSSDREAMS
