So, with the introductions out of the way, let’s start taking a close look at the Leesa Hybrid Mattress to see exactly where it stands.

Leesa Hybrid Mattress – The Basics

As already mentioned above, the Leesa Hybrid is a memory foam and pocketed spring mattress designed to provide “luxury” and offer a restful night’s sleep.

The Leesa brand has been around since 2015 and they were one of the first ‘bed in a box’ products to market.

They’re main offering was the Leesa Original mattress, with the Hybrid having only been recently introduced to their line-up of products.

It’s not uncommon to see established brands branch out and offer further products such as hybrid mattresses rather than just their standard ones further down the line.

Leesa are now one of the most popular mattress brands on the market, and they sell their products in multiple countries, including the UK and USA.

Taking a look at the marketing material of the Leesa Hybrid on the official website, the product description says that this product has been designed to provide both the support and durability of springs, along with the “luxurious” comfort of memory foam.

The promotional description also says that the Leesa Hybrid has been specifically put together to adapt to every single curve of your body, no matter your preferred sleeping position.

The Leesa Hybrid comes with an industry-standard 100-night home trial, meaning that you can return it for a refund during that time if you’re not happy with it. They also offer free shipping in the USA and in-home set-up as an extra option and it comes with a 10-year limited warranty.

Price wise, the Leesa Hybrid is towards the premium end of the spectrum. A Twin Size will set you back $1095, with a King Size coming in at $1895 if you’re buying direct on the official Leesa website.

The Leesa Hybrid is made of five different layers to offer a high quality feel and a mattress that is 11 inches thick, which is higher than the 10-inch industry standard.

Let’s take a look under the cover and see what the Leesa Hybrid Mattress is made of:

1) Comfort Foam – 1.5 inches to relieve pressure quickly
2) Contour Foam – Another 1.5 inches of memory foam for body contouring
3) Support Foam – One inch of transition foam above the pocketed coils
4) Support Layer with Coils – 6 inches of pocketed coils for a bouncy feel
5) High Density Poly Foam – One inch of HD Poly Foam for base support

So, quite clearly the Leesa Hybrid stands out from a lot of similar products on the market, mainly because of the thick layer of pocketed coils to add bounce and edge support.

It all sounds pretty good so far, but we prefer not to pay too much attention to what manufacturers say about their own products and instead focus on the important things such as what the mattress actually feels like, and what real customers are saying about it.

With that in mind, let’s move on to the next important section of our Leesa Hybrid Mattress review.

What Does The Leesa Hybrid Mattress Feel Like?

First things first, like most of the other similar products out there in this category, the Leesa Hybrid is marketed as a “medium-firm” mattress which suits all sleeping positions.

It’s rated at around a 6.5 on the firmness scale, with 10 being the firmest.

The Leesa Hybrid has plenty of give thanks to the top three layers of foam. They allow you to sink in nicely without going too deep into the mattress.

The Support Layer with Pocketed Coils offers some sturdy support indeed. There is some bounce and give, but it certainly offers a strong support layer.

Back sleepers are likely to love this mattress thanks to the give in the top three layers and the sturdy support below.

Side sleepers may possibly find the Leesa Hybrid to be a tad too firm, as the Pocketed Coils do not allow you to sink in quite as far as many memory foam only mattresses.

Stomach sleepers will certainly enjoy the stronger support of the support layer.

The Positives

• High Quality Product – The Leesa Hybrid is undoubtedly a very high quality product. It has a luxurious feel to it and at 11 inches thick, it’s one of the tallest standing mattresses we’ve reviewed recently.

• Coils Offer Good Airflow and Cooling – One of the good things about pocketed coils in mattresses is the fact that they allow for more airflow through the mattress. This means that hybrid mattresses often feel cooler than their foam-only cousins, and so this makes them perfectly suited if you get hot during the night.

The Negatives

• May Not Suit Side Sleepers – The layer of coils is pretty firm, and this means that you may not sink enough into this mattress if you’re a side sleeper.

• Premium Price Tag – There’s no getting away from the fact that the Leesa Hybrid is one of the more expensive options out there. That said, it’s worth keeping a close eye on the official website as they tend to offer some pretty good discounts from time to time.

Leesa Hybrid Mattress Reviews

We took a look on Amazon.com to see what real customers were saying about the Leesa Hybrid.

At the time of writing, the Leesa Hybrid had an average rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars from 65 customer reviews, which is pretty good going.

The most positive review we found came from someone who left a five-star review and said the mattress offers “exceptional” quality, despite it being a bit firmer than other options.

One of the more negative Leesa Hybrid Mattress reviews came from somebody who left a two-star review and reported that they had started experiencing lower back pain after a few months of using it.

Generally speaking though, the feedback seems to be pretty positive.

Anything Else To Consider?

There’s no way to know whether a mattress will be right for you or not apart from sleeping on it for a few nights.

It’s great to read reviews and other peoples’ accounts, but trying it out for yourself is the only way to be sure whether it’s the product for you.

We strongly recommend that you make full use of the 100-night home trials offered by most of the companies in this space, as it means that you can effectively test out the mattress in the comfort of your own home before making a final decision.

As we mentioned above, this Leesa Hybrid may be a particularly good option for you if you tend to get hot during the night, as the layer of pocketed coils allows for more airflow than standard foam mattresses (which have a reputation of being a bit hotter than traditional mattresses).

Review Conclusion – Final Thoughts

So, here we are at the end of our Leesa Hybrid Mattress review.

Overall, we were very impressed by the quality of this mattress. It comes with a premium price-tag but it’s clear from the off that it’s a high quality product.

The layer of pocketed springs offer some great support, and this means that it may be better suited to back and stomach sleepers than side sleepers, who generally prefer a slightly softer mattress.

It should also feel slightly cooler than an all-foam mattress, as the layer of coils allows for more airflow within the mattress itself.

All in all, we think that the Leesa Hybrid is a great option if you’re a back or stomach sleeper.
