Must Have For 2017 – Leesa Mattress
My mum has a serious neck injury, so wanted to know what kind mattress would be best for her. I’ve had my Leesa for around a year, and recommended it. I checked online and found a lot of people swear by Leesa to provide a more comfortable sleep, even with a back or neck injury.
The Leesa mattress is made from three different layers of foam, 22cm in height:
Top layer 5cm of Avena Foam
Middle layer 5cm of contouring memory foam
Bottom layer 12cm of sturdier support foam
The Avena foam is as supportive as memory foam, yet the coned design means that air flows through it, leading to a cooler nights sleep. It will also spring rather quickly back into shape, unlike memory foam.
This design is great, as it allows someone with a bad neck to almost be hugged in bed and held in place. The mattress is also so comfortable, that you tend to fall asleep quicker, though there is no actual scientific reason for this!
I have read that foam mattresses can be bad for larger people, as you can tend t o over sink. Now I am a large person and didn’t have any issue at all, I found it to be in the higher end of firm.I found it was great for sleeping on your back, front, or side. Really this mattresses was excellent for any style of sleeping.
The Leesa mattresses exclusively sold online, which means that what would normally be a two grand mattresses is seriously reduced in price:
Single 90cm x 190cm – £390
Double 135cm x 190cm – £590
King 150cm x 200cm – £690
Super King 180cm x 200cm – £740
I was really blown away by the design and look of the mattress. Gone is the frilly edges and bland cream colour of the old spring mattress. There is a light grey cover seamlessly covering the who mattress, with some cool looking stripes along the bottom.
Leesa are also very charitable, with every 10 orders of the Leesa, there is one donated to charity – leesa.co.uk/pages/one-ten
The Leesa arrives compressed into a box, and is easy to unload onto the bed. I would recommend doing it with 2 people instead of alone. It took a couple of hours for it to settle, and I would recommend leaving over night/day if possible.
After a couple of months using the Leesa, my mum has said how better it is with her neck, and loves how comfortable the whole thing is.
