The Leesa 10″ Memory Foam Mattress has been designed and constructed very thoughtfully, and it enables a high degree of comfort as well as support to the body. As different people prefer different firmness levels in a mattress, this mattress has been given a universally adaptive feel which enables everyone to get a perfectly good night’s rest. The manufacturer has used a unique combination of very high-quality foam layers to deliver excellent body-conformance, pressure relief, coolness, adequate bounce as well as perfect core support to provide an amazing sleep environment. The Leesa mattress has a strong social impact as well. The manufacturer donates one mattress for every ten sold to communities.
Materials and Construction
The Leesa 10″ Memory Foam Mattress contains a luxurious and iconic 4-stripe mattress cover. The manufacturer has endeavored to make this cover as breathable as possible enabling it to allow an airflow which wicks away sweat and moisture and provides body heat dispersal to regulate the sleep temperature. It is virtually seamless and does not have any tapered edges. It is one of the most comfortable mattress covers available in the market and enables a soft, cool and very comfortable sleep throughout the night.
The mattress has been constructed with three high-quality foam layers which altogether provide a body-conforming, cool, soft, pressure-relieving and highly supportive sleep throughout the night. The top layer is an all-new layer of premium foam which provides a higher level of pressure relief and thus, a better-quality rest. The feel offered by the mattress due to this top layer is a universally adaptive one and appeals to many different types of people with different preferences for feel of the mattress. The top layer adapts to the body regardless what sleep style the individual sleeps in. It is well-suited for all types of sleepers whether they sleep on the side, back or on their stomach. The side sleepers who are unable to sleep on all types of mattresses are especially accommodated on this mattress due to its excellent responsiveness and pressure-relieving properties.
The top layer of the mattress is a 2-inch thick layer of a special foam which is termed as the LSA-200™ Breathable. This is a proprietary technology foam which has been designed to provide a high level of responsiveness along with pressure relief. Many foam mattresses often respond slowly as the weight is lifted and as the body shifts its weight while moving on the mattress, the level of support felt is not adequate. The LSA200 foam technology enables very quick responsiveness, and during conduction of extensive tests, this type of foam has exhibited record recovery rates. The quick responsiveness enables a high degree of bounce which enhances the level of support to the body. When the body shifts its weight on this mattress, the top layer is quick to respond and bounces back to regain its shape. The foam under the new body position gets compressed, and the body-conforming feature is enabled at that position while the area which was previously under the body is quickly and fully released. This ensures support to the body quicker, and regardless of how fast the body shifts its weight, the mattress is quick to respond.
The quick responsiveness of the LSA200 foam top layer prevents the feeling of getting ‘stuck’ within the mattress, which is often felt by the body if the top layer of the mattress is slow to respond. The body can freely roll on top of the mattress and does not get the feeling of being locked into the mattress. However, the body-conformance of the top layer is significant enough to prevent rolling off the mattress which could happen on traditional beds which do not take the shape of the body under its weight. Thus, this top layer enables quick responsiveness and prevents the body from getting a ‘stuck’ feel without the possibility of rolling over the mattress. The top layer is also highly breathable and enables airflow through the mattress which wicks away sweat and moisture. This provides temperature regulation on top of the mattress, and the body stays at the desired temperature as the body heat is also dispersed by the air circulation through the mattress. The top layer enables a very cool sleep environment on top of the mattress.
Pressure Point relief is another highly desirable feature which is provided by the top layer of foam. On traditional beds, the body is pulled downward by gravity, and the mattress applies an upward force. The result is severe pressure on certain parts of the body like the hips, shoulders and the heels. These are the pressure points which develop a lot of stress. The breathable LSA200 foam technology layer enables the stress to be taken away from these pressure points. This is good for all types of sleepers regardless of whether they sleep on their side, back or the stomach, however, it is especially good for side sleepers as their hips, shoulders, and heels which would otherwise come under severe stress on a traditional bed are relieved of pressure on this top layer of the mattress. Thus, they spend the night without tossing or turning and wake up in the morning fully rejuvenated to face the next hectic day ahead with full vitality and vigor.
The pressure-relieving and body-conforming properties are further amplified by the 2nd 2-inch layer of foam in this mattress which is that of high-quality memory foam. Memory foam layer enables a high degree of body conformance and pressure relief for all types of sleepers. Memory foam gets compressed under the weight of the body, and when the bodyweight shifts away as the body moves, it regains its shape. This way, the memory foam cradles the body and molds to it making the sleep very comfortable. This layer of foam also distributes the body weight equally on its surface instead of concentrating it at certain points. Traditional spring beds would normally concentrate body weight at different parts of the body which affects blood circulation and causes severe tension in the muscles. This leads to the sleeper waking up in the morning with numb legs and sore muscles. The memory foam layer in the mattress ensures even distribution of the weight over the entire memory foam layer, and this enables the body to rest very comfortably on the mattress.
The memory foam layer has a dense structure, and this dense structure in comparison to traditional springs or conventional foam does not allow dust mites and allergens to live and thrive in the mattress. The breathability of the top foam layer also enables a similar effect by keeping the mattress clean due to the air circulation which wicks away moisture to eliminate odor. As such, dust mites and allergens do not reside in this mattress as they cannot find a place to thrive in it. This is in sharp contrast to traditional spring beds which have empty spaces and which can hold as many as a million dust mites. These might be harmless, but they can still cause a lot of allergies. This mattress layers of foam ensure that they would not be present to cause allergies to the sleeper. The bottom layer of foam which is of very high density as it is a support foam layer enables similar properties and does not let the dust mites and alleges life and thrive in it due to its highly dense structure. Thus, all of the layers of foam present in this mattress contribute to making it hypoallergenic.
The bottom layer of foam is a 6-inch thick layer of high-density support foam. This layer is instrumental in providing the ultimate support to the body. Placed beneath the LSA200 breathable foam layer and the memory foam layer, it supports both these layers as well as the body and does not let the body sink into the mattress. It applies an upward pushback which enables a high level of support to the body. This support level is well suited for all types of sleepers regardless of their sleeping styles. The combined effect of all these three high-quality foam layers is a cool, breathable, temperature-regulating, moisture-wicking, highly responsive, body-conforming, and supportive mattress which enables a perfectly comfortable and supportive sleep.

Comfort & Ergonomics
The Leesa 10″ Memory Foam Mattress is very soft and comfortable due to the top and middle layer of LSA200 and memory foam. This softness and comfort are further emphasized by the use of an iconic four stripe mattress cover. This cover has been designed to be highly breathable and allows airflow through the top of the mattress which wicks away sweat and moisture. This way, the body heat is dispersed away from the body and the mattress creating a very cool and comfortable sleep microenvironment. This cover has been made virtually seamless with no tapered edges at all. In terms of its looks, it is one of the most beautiful mattresses covers available in the market at present. Thus, it enhances the aesthetics of the mattress besides making it highly breathable, cool and dry.
The comfort and ergonomics of the mattress are a result of the top layer of this mattress as well as the middle layer. The top layer of LSA200 quick response foam is instrumental in providing a high degree of bounce to the body, and this allows the mattress to eliminate the discomforting ‘stuck’ feeling. The sleeper can roll o the mattress without feeling that he/she is trapped inside the mattress. The bounce is just enough to keep the sleeper comfortable. It is not so intense as to let the body roll off the mattress or to get knocked off it. The quick response LSA200 foam layer ensures a well-controlled bounce which provides comfort t the body. The foam gets depressed when weight is applied to it but releases very quickly as the body shifts its weight away from that position. This way the body does not conform to the shape of the mattress but the mattress conforms to the shape of the body and does it quickly and regains its original shape very quickly as well when the body moves away. Therefore, the quick responsive LSA200 layer of foam has a large part to play in providing comfort.
The comfort level of this mattress is further enhanced due to the high level of breathability of this LSA200 foam layer. The foam layer has an open cell structure which allows for air circulation through it, and the ensuing airflow dries out the sweat and moisture from the body. In conjunction with the breathable cover, this functionality is key to proving a very cool, comfortable and relaxing sleep environment on top of the mattress. This is true for warm summer nights as well. This layer of foam further makes life easier for side sleepers as it provides pressure relief. Instead of getting their hips ad shoulders stressed as, in traditional beds, they can sleep on this mattress comfortably and without any worries knowing well that the mattress would relieve their pressure points especially the hips, shoulders, and heels, etc.
The mattress is also body-conforming and this also gives a lot of comfort to the sleeper. Regardless of his/her sleep style. While side sleepers are especially pressure relieved on this mattress, the ones who sleep on their back and stomach are also provided a lot of comforts as their spine is correctly aligned and the pressure points like head, shoulders, neck, hips, knees, and heel are all relieved of any possible stress. The weight of the body is also evenly distributed, and this increases the comfort level because it keeps blood circulation going and does not let the arms and legs go numb. The muscles of the sleeper are also kept relaxed, and any possible tension in them is released.
None of the comfort level or even ergonomics would be possible in the absence of a high level of support from beneath the mattress. The mattress provides a high degree of support it uses high-density support foam at the base of the mattress. The support foam prevents the body from sinking into the mattress and also enables motion isolation in conjunction with memory foam above it. Couples who have different sleep schedules benefit a lot from this feature as when one partner gets up from the bed; the other sleep partner is not disturbed. When one partner gets up, the foam below him/her quickly recovers, and the motion is not transferred in the presence of a high level of support from below.
Durability and Warranty
The Leesa 10″ Memory Foam Mattress lasts for a very long time if taken care of properly. The mattress is made out of foam layers which are very durable. The durability of any product is directly related to its strength, robustness and the quality of the materials used in it. The foams used in this mattress are all of high quality and have dense structures as compared to conventional polyfoam. The build quality of the mattress is excellent as the manufacturer has used proprietary and highly advanced technology LSA200 breathable and quick responsive foam in this mattress. The densities of the memory foam layer in the middle, as well as that of the high-density support foam at the base of the mattress, are high as well. The higher the density of the foam, the better is its quality. The dense structure of these foam layers ensures that the mattress would be robust and strong. It would last for a very long time.
The breathability of the mattress cover, as well as that of the top layer of LSA200 breathable and responsive foam, ensure that the airflow generated within them keeps the mattress clean and sanitary. The sweat and moisture, once wicked away from the mattress do not cause any odor within the mattress. This keeps the bacterial build-up in check and enables a very cool, clean and comfortable sleep for a long time to come. The memory foam layer in the middle of this mattress is also very durable. It is body conforming and pressure relieving. It has a long life due to its dense structure, and it stays well-protected inside the mattress. It does not allow allergens and dust mites to get into its dense structure and live and thrive there. This feature supplements the cleanliness enables due to the cover and the top layer and ensures that the mattress is also sanitary besides being clean. The clean and sanitary nature of this mattress, therefore, leads to higher durability as the mattress stays free of odor, sweat, moisture, allergens, dust mites, etc. which if present could degrade its usability and performance over the years.
The durability of the mattress is directly related to the strength and robustness of the high-density support foam base in this mattress. It not only provides support to the body and the upper layers of the mattress but ensures a long life for the mattress. It acts as the support base. Conventionally, support bases were usually made out pf coil springs, but the use of high-density foam which is also very robust and durable has now become quite popular.
The durability of this mattress is also dependent upon how well the mattress is cleaned and maintained. This mattress can only be spot cleaned in case of a large liquid spill. A piece of cloth can be used with pressure applied to it to ooze the spilled liquid out of the mattress. Afterward, it can be air-dried. Heat should not be applied as it can damage the pressure-relieving capability of the memory foam. It is for this reason that the use of heating pads and electric blankets s not recommended on this mattress. Chemicals and bleach should never be used either. Only water-based products can be used on it. The mattress should also be kept on a solid foundation or bed frame, and it should not be allowed to sag. The mattress needs to be held firmly as well and must not be allowed to slide or wobble. When the mattress arrives initially, it can be unpacked from the box and placed in an airy room to allow it to expand to the proper size and give off process air which could cause bad smell. In a few days, the smell would be gone as the process air inside it would get replaced by cleanroom air. If all the above-given precautions are taken and the mattress also cleaned occasionally by vacuum cleaning it, it would last for a very long time.
