Highlights

  • We think Leesa has mastered the perfect mattress for the “average sleeper” – it offers a great balance between soft and firm, has cooling technology and built-in airflow, 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 4.7/5.
  • Tuft & Needle is known for being a universal mattress, or good for the “average” sleeper, offering one mattress design at a medium firmness level.
  • Tuft & Needle is one of the most budget-friendly options when it comes to quality foam mattresses. They actually dropped their pricing recently. (A queen mattress used to run for $675.)

Layers inside the mattress

The Leesa mattress is made with three layers of high-quality foam delivering airflow, contouring pressure relief and core support.

  • Top layer: Air-flow cooling and freedom of movement
  • Middle layer: Pressure relieving memory foam
  • Bottom layer: Dense core support; adds durability and structure without feeling too firm on top

You can also take a look at this video from Leesa describing the materials that make up their mattress:

Tuft & Needle’s proprietary foam works to draw heat from your body and disperse it out of the mattress. It’s ideal for sleepers of any size or weight because the more pressure you put on it, the more it reacts to support you.

  1. Top layer – Adaptive® foam designed to carry heat away from your body and adapt to your movements while you sleep
  2. Cover – light and airy fabric promotes heat transfer through the mattress
  3. Bottom layer – foundation foam, provides support and structure
