Intro To Leesa
Leesa is one of the more well-known bed in a box mattress brands in the online space, and they want to give everyone the chance to make their own beds feel more like a Leesa mattress. We’ll get into the feel, materials, and everything else you need to know in the following sections, but we want to give you a background on the brand.
Leesa was founded only a short time ago in 2014, and they have since become one of the top 10 most well-known online mattress brands. Now that their mattress was so popular, they wanted to implement that same Leesa feel into a mattress topper.

Quick Overview Of Company Policies
When you purchase a mattress online, you’re given a few extra perks that you might not see in a brick-and-mortar retail store.
First of all, Leesa will send you a topper for free and it will show up in a box right at your front door. All you have to do is unbox, unroll, and enjoy.
You’re allowed to keep your mattress topper for 100 nights, in order to try it out and decide if you think it’s accommodating enough for you. If not, go ahead and shoot customer service an email. They’ll make sure you get your money back if you contact them within the trial period.
If you do decide to keep it, your bed will be backed by a 10-year warranty just in case of any manufacturing defects.
Leesa Topper Price Tag
You could consider Leesa one of the trailblazers for making bed-in-a-box mattresses more mainstream, so price wise, they’re in line with most of the other online brands out there like Casper and Layla.
If you want to purchase a twin size Leesa topper, it will cost you about $200. A king or Cal king topper retails at about $350. As you can see, they aren’t the most affordable toppers like those from Allswell. So if you’re on a tight budget, you may want to consider a different option. Although, they aren’t outrageously priced compared to others we’ve tested out.
Leesa Topper Materials And Specs
This mattress topper is a much thinner, more affordable version of the Leesa Mattress. They basically took comfort materials from their 10” bed, and implemented it into a one layer, 2” thick topper.
The topper is manufactured here in the United States, and made with what the brand calls “Leesa foam,” which is essentially just a really comfortable memory foam. Not your average memory foam, though, it’s actually more of a new-age memory foam — but we’ll get into that a little later.
The Leesa Topper’s cover looks pretty identical to the one that encases their mattress, and it’s made with the same materials too: polyester, viscose, and lycra. It’s really light, soft, and luckily for folks who like to enjoy breakfast in bed — the cover is machine washable.
So if a spill happens to soak through your sheets onto the cover, you can wash it with cold water. Though, they suggest you leave it out to air dry rather than via dryer. We’d listen to them too, you don’t want to end up with a shrunken cover that doesn’t fit back on the topper.
Give Your Bed A Softer Feel
Most sleepers buy toppers to make their mattress more comfortable, or to lengthen the life expectancy of their current, naturally worn and torn bed. Either way, we think the Leesa Mattress Topper will make most beds feel softer, unless you’re starting out with a pretty firm bed from the get go.
Since this topper is made from memory foam, it definitely has that contouring, pressure relieving feel. With that said, it isn’t like the traditional memory foam. You know what we’re talking about, that slight syrup-like feel that some people love and others really hate. Instead, this foam is more of a neutralized memory foam in that it responds to pressure quicker, and doesn’t give you a “stuck” feeling — just check it out for yourself.
If you have an all-latex foam mattress or a bed that’s a little too firm for you, you could certainly consider this topper to provide some well-deserved pressure relief. Side sleepers especially need their mattress to feel a little on the softer side, otherwise they might wake up with a dead-feeling shoulder.
Consideration For Heavier Sleepers
If you’re a heavy back or belly sleeper over ~240 lbs, make sure your mattress is firm enough for this topper addition. The last thing you want is to buy a topper in the hopes of making your mattress more comfortable, but it ends up contributing to poor sleep.
Remember, the heavier you are, the softer a mattress/mattress topper is going to feel. Therefore, back and stomach sleepers with a bigger build need a real firm mattress, and the Leesa topper probably won’t do much good unless you’re currently sleeping on a rock.
So who would we suggest Leesa’s topper to? Well, for starters, we’d say anybody willing to fork out a little extra dough for a soft, but neutral-feeling memory foam topper. Maybe you have a Leesa Mattress at home, and you want to spice up the dorm bed at your college. Maybe the mattress you currently have is too firm, or feels too much like viscous memory foam. Overall, the Leesa topper is a more affordable way to change up the feel of your mattress without buying a brand new bed.
Though, if you’re on a super tight budget, we suggest looking at other toppers like Allswell from Walmart. Alternatively, if you’re in the market for a natural and more environmentally-friendly one, check out the topper from Birch made from organic materials.
We were sent this topper by the folks over at Leesa. They wanted our team members to test it out, and write a truthful post about it on our website.
Leesa also makes mattresses, bed frames, pillows, a mattress protector, and other bedding like comforters, sheets, and duvets.
It should take about 2-8 business days to arrive at your home.
