There’s a local commercial that airs here in So Cal for a mattress store. Their whole tagline is “If it’s over 8, it’s time to replace”… Now I realize that’s just a marketing ploy, but there is something to be said about having a good mattress. Lately I’ve been noticing that I haven’t been sleeping as well and I’ve been thinking about getting a new mattress. My current mattress is actually way over 8 years old… (more like 16 years). However, the idea of trying to go through the process of finding a new ones is almost like trying to buy a new car. Having to deal with sales people, trying out different ones, only being able to test them out for only a few minutes and trying to decide if this is going to be “the one”?
So when Leesa, contacted me recently about giving one of their mattresses a try, their timing was totally serendipitous. Leesa is a new company whose concept is totally redesigning the mattress- from construction to how it gets sold. Basically, they make a “bed in a box”. The mattress is totally sealed and compressed/vacuum packed and then placed in a box and shipped directly to you.
It’s kind of like the whole Warby Parker deal. You order it online, Leesa will send you the mattress, and you get to try it out for 100 days! And if you don’t like it- you can get a full refund- no hassles! (They will arrange for a pickup of the mattress so you don’t have to deal with shipping.) Their mattresses are completely made in the USA, and what’s also cool is that for every 10 mattresses they sell, they donate one to a shelter.
Anyway, I was totally intrigued and sold. I was dying to try it out!
So, I ordered it and in a few days, I got a big box on my doorstep!
The process of unpacking the mattress was pretty fascinating. The box seemed kind of small to me, since I ordered a Queen size, so I was curious how they packed it all in. The box is a little heavy and bulky, so it helps to have a friend to help you unpack it (but you could totally do it yourself). Lo and behold, it unraveled into the right size and it was pretty magical how quickly it puffed up.
After an hour or so, it was ready to test out. Since Pepé basically is the king of all beds in this house, he was clearly interested in testing it out first.
My old mattress was one of those traditional spring/coil types, but the Leesa mattress is made up of several layers of different types of foam. The top is a cooling layer of foam, while the middle is memory foam, and the bottom is a super dense foam for support.
This is my first time actually sleeping on a foam bed and I have to say, so far it’s kind of amazing. I’m not one that likes a super firm bed, but I do like a little support, so this mattress has been a good compromise. It’s been over a week now, and I can honestly say I’ve been able to sleep so much more soundly!
The other fun thing about getting a new mattress was that it gave me an excuse to change up my bedding a little.
Anyway- if you need any other recommendation, Pepé can totally vouch for you.
