The stairs in this house don’t make it easy to get anything large up to the second floor. A traditional spring mattress? Only if it’s a twin size. Anything larger and it needs to be foam so it can round the corner on its way up. A mattress that arrives magically compressed into a box that’s smaller than me? Ideal.
Leesa ships their mattresses, for free, rolled up in a box that makes it easy to transport. The mattresses are made in America, with three foam layers: the bottom is dense foam for support, with a 2″ layer of memory foam in the middle that contours to the body, and then a 2″ layer of Avena® (similar to latex) that adds bounce and keeps the mattress from feeling too hot.
Because they’re a direct-to-consumer company, they can offer lower prices than brands typically bought through nationwide showrooms. Yep, this means that you’re buying a mattress online without ever having slept on it, but they offer a 100 night risk-free trial period. If you don’t like it, they’ll arrange for the mattress to be picked up and recycled or donated. Leesa also has a charitable component to their business; for every 10 mattresses they sell, one is donated to a homeless shelter or others in need.
I was easily able to get a king-sized Leesa mattress setup by myself. Gif time! Enjoy.
* A few people have asked about the box spring in the comments, so I thought I’d better add the info to the post itself. It’s actually just a foundation (no springs), it is indeed one piece, and I had to build it in the room. It’s not needed for the mattress, but it is necessary for the bed I ordered. *
I like shopping for bedding — looking for colors and patterns that will mix well with the linens we already have, and giving the bedroom a little update every time I swap out the sheets or change the throw pillows. Heading out to go mattress shopping though? Not so fun. Being able to order a luxury mattress online is so much nicer.
