Leesa vs. Purple Mattress Review

Leesa and Purple are two of the most popular online mattress brands. If you’re in the market for a new mattress, you’ve probably come across each of these brands at least once. Purple is a unique mattress made with the pressure-relieving hyper-elastic polymer (a unique mattress material) and Leesa is made with a proprietary Aveena foam, designed to provide optimal responsiveness and a comfortable surface for any type of sleeper.

To help you easily see how the Leesa and Purple mattresses compare on factors like motion transfer, responsiveness, pressure relief and trial period, we’ve organized these important details in an easy-to-follow side-by-side comparison. See how these mattresses stack up against each other below.

Highlights

  • We think Leesa has mastered the perfect mattress for the “average sleeper” – it offers a great balance between soft and firm, promotes airflow to keep you cool, and won’t leave you sinking into the foam like quicksand.
  • The Leesa scored high in our testing, but also has a happy (and well-rested) bunch of customers who rate it a 4.8/5.
  • Leesa is always looking for ways to improve their products. In fact, they recently launched an updated version of their mattress with new pressure-relieving foam that took 200 prototypes to get just right. Talk about not settling!
  • The Purple is a mattress with a big personality, but it does have a lot to boast about: it sleeps cool, is great for spinal alignment and does a good job with reducing any movement you’ll feel from other people (or animals).
  • Customers who own the Purple have claimed it’s helped them relieve back and neck pains.
  • The Purple is topped with a unique pressure-releasing material that is especially great for back and side sleepers – when you lie on your back, it will help your spine maintain its natural curve and when you lie on your side, it will help keep your spine straight.
