I have been through a lot with my bed over the years. It started when I started flying for a career and the need to have a better bed than the hotels that I stayed in was my priority. I’ve always been that person who has been able to sleep a lot and a fifteen hour sleep is not unusual for me. I have always been in the mindset that my bed had to be the ultimate in comfort, with beautiful bedding, plump pillows and stylish throws but most of all, the mattress had to be that support that I needed for my back and legs. Choosing a mattress is quite the decision and my last was a fancy deep pocket sprung affair with a memory foam top and came along with a hefty price tag. It did last, but only up until the 8 year mark which is the industry standard for mattresses. I was adamant that I wouldn’t be getting rid after 8 years but when I noticed that it was dipping in the middle and my bedding didn’t look smooth across the bed, it was starting to annoy me. When Leesa made contact with me to offer me a brand new mattress in exchange for a review, I practically bit their hand off. My new mattress has changed my life.
The last mattress I bought was a nightmare to get into my house. It was rigid and wrapped in its plastic outer and as a single person, I struggled to get it up to my room. When my Leesa mattress turned up in a box, I was so shocked to see just how small the box was to house a double mattress. I needed help to get it into my house as it is heavy but to remove the mattress from the box was relatively simple. When I lay the rolled up tube of mattress onto the bare slats of my bed, I honestly couldn’t believe that this would magically inflate into a double bed sized, deep mattress. I must admit that watching the mattress start to expand after removing the plastic was so fun and within minutes, I had a fully expanded mattress on my bed.
Made of three layers of foam; the dense core support layer for strength, durability and structure. The pressure relieving memory foam for body contouring and pressure relief and finally the cooling Avena foam that provides the airflow for a cooler nights sleep as well the bounce you need with a mattress. It has been unbelievably hot this past month that I have had my Leesa, and I have only slept under the duvet around five times. I cannot wait for it to get a little cooler so I can have some skin to Leesa contact without having a duvet in between!
After the hell I went through with my back, and the ongoing quest to make sure that I am supported, my new Leesa mattress has changed things for the better. I spend an awful lot of time in my bedroom as I still struggle with my couch due to how low it is. I find that sitting on my bed watching TV is a lot more comfortable and I can get off my bed so much easier. When it comes to sleeping on a foam mattress, I was a bit apprehensive at first. I didn’t know if it would be good for me or if I would be too supported when I sleep. What I have noticed is that where I used to flip myself around like a fish through the night to keep my back straight and supported has definitely lessened. I find that I’m held in position a lot more, and whilst I still have plenty of movement I have the added security of being moulded into place.
It did take me a few nights to get used to having a full foam mattress. As my old one was just topped with foam, it didn’t have the firmness like my Leesa. Just like sleeping in someone else’s bed, or in a hotel, you need to give your bed chance to be your bed again. Since then, I can hand on heart say that my Leesa mattress has been the best thing that has happened to me. I’m sleeping like a log, I’m falling asleep when my head hits the pillow and when I’m using my bed to sit on, I feel supported which in turn helps my spine and relieves the tension of my damaged nerves.
Buying a new mattress is a big decision and should you not like it, you’re stuck with a very expensive outlay. Leesa have a 100 night sleep guarantee and should you decide that you don’t like it, they will pick it up and refund it for you. This extra peace of mind makes a huge difference, however I really don’t think you will need to use it. I am so happy with my mattress and I would not recommend any product, especially at this price, if I didn’t believe in it. I believe that my Leesa mattress has changed the way I sleep.
