Sleeping like a baby with Leesa // Review

Leesa sleep mattress

*A collaborative post with Leesa

With a young family to look after, my days are pretty busy. From the moment I wake up I’m always on the go with meals to prepare and serve, clothes to wash and dry, nappies to change, bottle feeds and now weaning little Freddie in full flow too, by the time it gets to late evening, I am well and truly ready for a good nights sleep (if only eh?) We recently took delivery of a brand new mattress from Leesa and as I had heard some great things about it, I couldn’t wait to give it a go!

When our Leesa mattress arrived, it was delivered in a rectangular box. It was rolled up in a huge cardboard box and once we managed to haul it up the stairs, as we unboxed and unravelled the packaging from it, we watched in amazement at how such a huge mattress could fit in there. The mattress expanded over the wooden bed frame like warm dough and it looked incredibly comfortable. It takes just over an hour for the Leesa mattress to fully expand but for best results, you should allow a couple of days to let it reach its potential.

Super comfy thanks to the 3-layer foam construction

We have a king size bed and ordered a king size mattress to sit on top. It’s a brilliant fit on the bed frame as our previous king size mattress hung over the side a little. It has a 25cm depth to it (which means you need to make sure you have deep fitted sheets to place over it) but that’s thanks to the 3-layer foam construction. On top there’s the 5cm Cooling Avena® foam top layer which has been brilliant over the last few weeks of the warm weather as it allows airflow throughout the top layer of the mattress. Pressure relieving memory foam is the sandwich of the Leesa which contours to your body whilst you sleep relieving any pressures and cradles you whilst being supportive. The bottom layer of the bed is 15cm of dense core support which adds strength and durability to anyone who sleeps on it. It’s ideal for people of any size (which is good news for me right now) and who sleep on their back, their front or their side.

How we’ve found the Leesa mattress

We’ve been sleeping on the Leesa mattress for well over a month now and I’m sold. It’s really comfortable and when I’ve had the luxury of sleeping for more than five hours through the night, I’ve slept well. I used to be such a deep sleeper and could sleep through my husbands snoring. These days with the boys, I’m a much lighter sleeper and can wake up at one of them coughing or sneezing! When Freddie has had a really good nights sleep, so have I. I haven’t woken up tossing and turning over, I’ve not been too hot and uncomfortable, it’s been a real treat to sleep on! For an exhausted Mama, getting a good nights sleep is essential and thankfully, when Freddie allows, I can sleep like a baby too!

    Will it support someone of 20 stones and for how long ? I’m fed up of buying mattresses only for them to collapse and start making noise after a few months
