Leesa Legend Highlights

  • The Leesa Legend takes their hybrid mattress design to the next level by incorporating luxury natural materials such as organic cotton and wool as well as recycled materials.
  • Its luxury design supports all sleep positions, types, and lifestyles.
  • The ultra responsive foam and relief layers keep up with your nighttime movement and keep your spine in good alignment.

Leesa Legend Review

The Leesa Legend is a luxury mattress made with natural materials that works for all types of sleepers—we’re talking all sleep styles and all body types. Its true medium firmness makes it a great option for people who like a soft, cozy mattress with the support of a firm mattress.

At its core, the Leesa Legend has six different layers, but it’s hard to ignore the all-natural, hypoallergenic cover. This cover is made from organic cotton, merino wool, and recycled materials, something lovers of the earth can brag about. The rest of the mattress is made up of breathable foam and responsive pocketed springs for comfort, support, and pressure relief.

The inner materials work together to hug your hips, back, and shoulders while your body remains supported and your spine is aligned. The Quick Response layer makes sure that neither you nor your sleep partner feels any motion transfer as you two toss and turn at night.

What to Watch Out For

  • When you unbox the Leesa Legend you may notice a mild odor. It’s normal and will go away after it airs out for a few hours.
  • Like most bed-in-a-box mattresses, it can take a while (up to 30 days) to break in and adjust to the Leesa Legend mattress.
  • It’s important to have the right mattress foundation for optimal performance of the Leesa Legend. Leesa recommends a foundation that is firm, flat, and sturdy. The wrong base may harm your sleep experience.

Customer Reviews

On Pain Relief

I love this mattress. Best mattress I’ve ever had. I suffer from lower back pain and this mattress has cured it. Our old mattress also moved when my husband moved and this one doesn’t move at all. I’m so happy!” -Amy

On Comfort

This bed is fabulous! Coming from the Hybrid mattress, the legend is a true upgrade. I fell in love with the Hybrid, but decided to take a risk with the legend and NO COMPLAINTS. Once I got used to it’s slightly softer/more plush feel, I found myself sleeping in later than I ever have. Waking the next morning feeling rejuvenated, and not groggy! Way to go Leesa on this mattress!!” -Jimmy

On Upgrading

We switched from a queen Leesa Mattress to a king Legend Mattress. Honestly, the most comfortable thing I’ve ever slept on.” -Tammy

Compatible Foundations

For the Legend mattress, Leesa suggests a foundation that is firm and sturdy. A bunkie board is another suitable option that is more budget-friendly. This foundation type is a 2-3″ board that creates a flat surface, rigid enough to support a hybrid mattress. It works well with platform beds, metal frames, and slatted foundations.

Leesa Mattress FAQs

How does the 100-night trial period for the Leesa Legend mattress work?

Once you receive your Leesa Legend mattress, your 100 night sleep trial begins. If you decide within these 100 days that you want to return the Leesa Legend mattress, contact the customer support team to have a pick up scheduled. A Leesa representative will pick it up and donate it to a local charity. But remember, it can take up to 30 days to adjust to a new mattress and break it in, so give it a fair chance before scheduling a return.

From the day that your Leesa Legend arrives at your door, you will have 100 nights to decide if the mattress is right for you. We do recommend that you sleep on the mattress for at least 30 nights before making the decision to return as there is a break-in period. If you decide to return the mattress, contact Leesa’s customer support team, and they will walk you through the process. A Leesa representative will pick up your mattress from your home and donate it to a local charity.

How long will it take for the Leesa Legend to be delivered?

Because the mattresses are made to order, it will take about 3-6 business days to ship after they are made.

Leesa Legends come with free in-home delivery where they will set up your mattress for you and remove your old bed. If you opt-in to this perk, the waiting time will be bumped up to 7 business days.

Can I use a military discount for the Leesa Legend mattress?

Yes! Leesa offers discounted rates on all products for the military all year long. Leesa also offers discounts for first-responders, students, and teachers.

How long can my Leesa Legend stay in the box?

It’s best to take the Leesa Legend out of the box once you receive it, but it will be okay in the box for about 30 days.

Will I need to flip my Leesa Legend?

The hybrid layer construction of the Legend works best in their designed order, so you shouldn’t flip your Leesa Legend mattress.

Is the Leesa Legend eco-friendly?

The cover of the Leesa Legend is made with recycled plastic water bottles, organic cotton, and organic wool. The foams used inside the Leesa Legend are all CertiPUR-US® certified.
