A friend once said to me that a decent mattress is a cornerstone of a good life. That’s why we were pleased when Leesa Sleep asked us to try out a luxury memory foam mattress from their range. Nothing beats springing out of a kingsize bed into a bright, fresh morning. The kids might not always play ball. But a comfortable mattress, and the prospect of a delicious night’s sleep, takes the sting out of coming home from our travels.

A mattress in a box: the arrival of our Leesa mattress
After we’d ordered our Leesa mattress, an email arrived with an order number. The mattress despatched the next day, with an estimated delivery of 5-7 days later. I happened to be out when hte delivery person called, so Leesa gave me a ring to check that everything was ok, and to find out when to re-deliver. Although they couldn’t be very specific about the time of the delivery, they were at pains to make sure the mattress arrived on a day that was convenient.
Although the cardboard box was phenomenally heavy (it needed two of us to carry it up the stairs), it was difficult to see how a supportive mattress could be scrunched up this small. But, once we’d cut off the plastic layer, the Leesa mattress began to puff up – and within an hour, it was up and ready for us to lie down on it.
What makes Leesa the best luxury mattress?
We didn’t pay for our own Leesa mattress, but I can quite honestly say that it is the best luxury mattress I’ve slept on. It has that ‘soft-but-supportive’ quality that you usually find in a memory foam mattress. But as well as memory foam, the luxury mattress from Leesa has a strong base layer, of foam that’s designed to give structure and intense support. Unlike some mattresses, you don’t need to turn the Leesa. There are no long-lasting dips like some memory foam mattresses. Instead, a 5cm Avena® foam top layer lets air flow around you as you sleep. That’s been particularly welcome on these hot summer nights.
Leesa aren’t just skilled at making high-end mattresses. For every ten mattresses sold, they donate one to charities supporting the homeless, as well as those seeking refuge from domestic abuse and human trafficking. So far, they’ve pledged over 30,000 mattresses to charities worldwide, including 30 charities in the UK. They also plant a tree for every mattress they sell.
We’ve been sleeping on our luxury mattress for a month now, and I’ve had THE best sleep. With some luxury bedding and an atmospheric lamp or two, I could almost convince myself I was in a super-expensive hotel. Ok, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration – it’s impossible to escape the sounds of south London, like foxes yowling, and neighbours bickering – but sinking back into bed with a good book or three, has never been more pleasureable.
