Leesa Mattress Highlights

  • We think Leesa has created the perfect mattress for any sleeping position – 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 is the highest rated mattress on Mattress Advisor, 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. The best part is, they didn’t raise the price of the mattress, so you’re still getting a quality mattress at a really great price point. You can watch our video below to see the highlights but as a quick teaser: it’s even better than it was before for side sleepers!

Tuft & Needle Mattress Highlights

  • 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.)

Inside the Tuft & Needle

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

The Leesa mattress is a crowd-pleaser. They have a happy and well-rested fanbase who find comfort sleeping on the layers of memory foam that Leesa thoughtfully crafted into their one-of-a-kind bed.

But the Tuft & Needle is also a great option – especially for those who are shopping on a budget. Tuft & Needle offers many of the same perks as Leesa (100 day trial period, 10-year limited warranty, medium-firm foam mattress, etc.) as a smaller price. If you aren’t quite willing to fully invest in your sleep yet, the Tuft & Needle is a great budget purchase.
