Honestly, I didn’t think my old mattress was that bad. We had been given one by a family member that had been barely used and cost well over £1000, and aside from being a touch too firm for my liking and a tiny bit of lower back pain, I thought we had an alright set-up. It’s funny how you don’t realise how much better things could have been until it’s changed.
I’m sure Leesa mattresses need no introduction to most of you; a lot of us have seen those white on grey stripes around on social media, but just incase, I’ll fill you in. Leesa are an innovative mattress design, offering what they call “Universal Adaptive Feel”; all their mattresses are compressed and sent out in cardboard boxes. When it arrives you would have no idea there was a mattress inside, except for the weight perhaps.
Leesa recommend getting the box into the room it’ll be in, and taking the mattress out straight onto the bed. It’s compressed into two layers of plastic to keep it as thin as possible, and it then decompresses as soon as you start to remove it. Within an hour it’s fully taken shape, and you’re good to go! I will warn you, there was a tiny bit of a scent when it’s first unpacked, but it had gone within a day or two, and it certainly didn’t effect my sleep in any way.
It’s hard to describe the mattress itself, because it’s soft, but not so? It’s deliciously squishy, but the second layer down is a lot firmer, so you’re supported. Brilliant scientific explanation, I know. I seriously wish I’d had this mattress when I was pregnant, because it is so supportive, even with my massive hips and bum. The top layer is made from a cooling Avena foam, providing airflow and enough bounce to move around easily. Second is a pressure relieving memory foam, followed by a dense core support to give some structure and durability.
Visually, it’s a LOT better looking than your average mattress. I mean, I know I’m biased because I’m a grey lover, but it really is so much nicer than our old one. I know ultimately it’s going to be covered in sheets anyway, but I’ll take anything to brighten up my experience of changing the bed.
If you’re not sold yet, Leesa give you a 100 day trial guarantee; you buy, test it out, and if it’s not for you, you can send it back. AND even better yet, for every ten mattresses Leesa sell, they donate one to organisations that support homeless and at-risk men, women and children, which is just incredible and something definitely worth supporting.
The only downside is that it’s now even harder to get Kane out of bed in the mornings (you’d think I’m talking about a teenager, wouldn’t you, not a thirty year old man), which he himself blames on how comfortable the mattress is. I’ll admit, I was a little bit skeptical at first being used to such a firm mattress, but I’m absolutely sold on my new Leesa.
If you fancy trying one out for yourself, hurry because until midnight TONIGHT (30th July) they’re offering a massive £125 off with a discount code!
