- 4 Memory Foam Dangers
Most memory-foam mattresses include a mixture of chemicals that emit toxic odors when you first take them from their protective packaging. Unless the manufacturer opted to use plant-based oils or latex from naturally occurring rubber sources, many mattresses emit or off-gas moderate to strong odors. Most memory-foam mattresses take up to three days before the off-gassing dissipates. Highly sensitive people or those with chemical allergies should wait even longer than three days before sleeping on the bed.
Off-gassing Memory Foam
In a 2014 survey, Sleep Like the Dead, a private sleep research firm, reported that nearly 2 percent of surveyed owners returned their beds due to the smells of the memory foam. Close to a quarter of the 6,934 memory-foam mattress owners surveyed indicated that it took three to 10 days for the smells to disappear, while a little over half cited up to 20 days for the odors to dissipate. About an eighth of those surveyed indicated more than 20 days for the mattress to quit smelling.

How long does a mattress last?
My mattress is getting on in years. In fact, Bill Clinton was in his first term as president when I last bought a new one. Is it time for me to replace my mattress?
You’ve probably logged more than 30,000 hours in your bed, and your mattress has likely become less comfortable and less supportive. But there’s no set formula for determining when you need to replace a mattress. It might be time to buy one if:
•You regularly wake up tired or achy—you make Oscar the Grouch seem as cheerful as Mr. Rogers.
•You tend to sleep better away from home, than in your own bed. Are you planning unnecessary business trips or looking for any reason to go on a weekend getaway?
•Your mattress looks or feels saggy or lumpy—it needs go on the Abs Diet.
•You’re over age 40 and your mattress is five to seven years old. Remember, your body tolerates less pressure as it ages. As if getting older weren’t tough enough . . .
A mattress can be an expensive investment—we’ve tested models that cost in excess of $4,000—but if you treat your new one properly, it could easily last 10 years. Our advice:
•Don’t let your kids use your bed as a trampoline.
•Rotate your mattress. If you have a single-sided mattress (you sleep on only one side), rotate the mattress from end to end—that is, move the mattress 180 degrees. The foot of the mattress is now at the head, and vice versa.
If you have a double-sided mattress, rotate it as above, then turn it over so the bottom is now on top.
Perform these steps every two weeks for the first three months you have your new mattress, then once every two months thereafter. You’ll find illustrated instructions on a number of different Web sites.
• Use a bed frame that has a center support.

1) leesa mattress Trial Period Confusion
DonвЂ™t screw this up if you want to be able to try a different bed
You can have a great mattress buying experience even if you decide you donвЂ™t want the first one you buy. But only if you donвЂ™t get confused by the trial period details. And it is very easy to get that mixed up. Because the return policy of this mattress on Amazon recently changed and is much longer than most other goods sold at that company.
Leesa’s LONG Return period on Amazon- The Amazon return/trial period is100 days. Really. I confirmed this by phone with both Amazon and Leesa. But since this is NOT Amazon’s standard 30 day policy,document it. This will help you in the event that you don’t like it, want to return it, and you get an uncooperative Amazon return specialist ‘helping’ you.
- Take a screen shot of the Amazon Leesa mattress page with the "100 Night Trial" part of the product title showing as well as the price that you paid.
- Print the screen shot out and keep it with your warranty and payment information.
- Keep a digital copy in case you need to send it to Amazon.
- To initiate a return, visit Amazon’s Online Return Center to request a return authorization from the seller.
If you’re having problems with the standard online return center, call 866-216-1072 and ask to talk to a вЂњLarge ItemsвЂќ person to get your return started. Don’t kill yourself trying to re-compress the mattress. Follow their instructions. Amazon will arrange for the pickup and transportation.
Of course, Leesa wants your experience with their bed to be вЂњlove at first night.вЂќ People can usually tell within two weeks if a mattress or bed will work for them. If you can’t sleep easily after a month, DON’T spend 3 months being miserable just because you think that you’ll magically change your mind after 89 days.
- $100 return fee if you live in Alaska or Hawaii
- The manufacturer coordinates the pickup from your home
- You get a 100% refund once it has been picked up
2) NOT USING A MATTRESS PROTECTOR
The mattress cover, though lovely to look at and feel, is not removable and therefore not washable.
3) NOT READING TO THE END OF THIS LEESA MATTRESS REVIEW
Because you wonвЂ™t discover 21 important characteristics, shipping and warranty facts about the Leesa bed or how it compares to its 5 major competitors. So keep reading and find outвЂ¦
WHAT ARE THE PROPERTIES OF THE LEESA MATTRESS?
Firmness (Fact #1)
Medium-firm – On a firmness scale of 0-10 (soft to firm) itвЂ™s about a 6 out of 10.
Motion isolation (Fact #2)
The Leesa mattress has good motion isolation properties. You wonвЂ™t fall into a valley towards your partner. They wonвЂ™t wake you up when they get in or out of bed. You wonвЂ™t notice when your pets jump onto the bed and turn around three times to get settled.
Is there support at the edge of the Leesa mattress? (Fact #3)
ItвЂ™s not the same as the edge of an inner spring that has a thick wire inside the edge part. When you sit on the edge it will compress three or four inches if you are an male of average weight.
How does it hold up over time? (Fact #4)
The manufacturer says to expect it tosoften a bitafter a year, and some buyers have said that it does. But if it gets actual dents or вЂњbody shadowsвЂќ more than an inch deep, that is a defect that is covered under warranty.
Can I turn it over for even wear?(Fact #5)
No, you canвЂ™t. Like most memory foam mattresses, the Leesa mattress has a sleeping side and a support side. They are easy to tell apart. Rotate it, though, every month or two to avoid developing dents.
DO I NEED TO USE A BOX SPRING?
No. You can use any flat rigid surface. The warranty says you need to use a вЂњmatching, solid foundation, base, or frame substantial enough to support the mattress and occupant(s).вЂќ(Fact #6)
According to a rep of the manufacturer, you can even use it on a Murphy bed or a wall bed (which you can make yourself with a DIY kit) to turn an office or den into a guest room.
How long does it take to expand?(Fact #7)
You should let it expand for up to 60 minutes before sleeping on it. After several days it will reach its full firmness.
Can you collapse it again for moving?(Fact #8)
No, you have to move it the way it is unless you have an industrial strength vacuum sucker. ItвЂ™s lighter than most mattresses but it can be floppy and doesnвЂ™t have handles.
DOES IT SLEEP "HOT"?
No. On top, above the memory foam layer, is a layer of LeesaвЂ™s Avenaп»їв„ў foam. ItвЂ™s not latex but itвЂ™s similar and it has more spring and airflow than memory foam. You donвЂ™t need to worry about night sweats or waking up because the bed is too hot.(Fact #9)
Will it get hard or cold in winter?(Fact #10)
No more than any other memory foam.Note:representatives of the manufacturer donвЂ™t recommend sleeping on top of heating pads or heated blankets because they donвЂ™t know what effect the extra heat from your particular appliance may have on how the mattress reacts.
DOES IT SMELL?
Some people mention a faint odor or off-gassing that disappears within a few hours or days. This might just be the plastic packaging it came in though. Get that stuff out of your bedroom ASAP.
If there is a chemical odor strong enough to bother you and it lasts for more than a week, you should call to return it, and donвЂ™t be shy about it. You may have a chemical sensitivity or maybe you got a mattress that was made on a Monday.(Fact #11)
WILL THIS BED WORK FOR ME?
What sleep positions is it best for?(Fact #12)
- ItвЂ™s best for back sleepers unless they want a super-firm mattress
- ItвЂ™s good for stomach sleepers too, but heavier people may sink in too far to find it comfortable
- ItвЂ™s too firm for some side sleepers
Is it good for heavy/light people?(Fact #13)
The Leesa mattress is designed for people who weigh up to 300 lbs. But it might not be comfortable enough or last as long if you weigh more than 200 lbs.
People under 110 lbs may not exert enough pressure and therefore find it too firm.
Can I sit up in bed to read or watch TV?(Fact #14)
Yes, you can. You wonвЂ™t make enough of a dent to affect the comfort of your mattress.
Is it good for children?(Fact #15)
Memory foam mattresses are not recommended for infants under one year old even though they might find it comfy. One reason is that they would be breathing chemicals. ItвЂ™s fine for toddlers and older kids if they are in good health.
What about dust mites and allergens?(Fact #16)
ItвЂ™s more resistant to dust mites than regular coil mattresses. The Avena foam is hypo-allergenic.
HOW IS IT MADE?
Here’s how the Leesa mattress sleep system is constructed:(Fact #17)
- Polyester-lycra cover
- Cool and soft, seamless
- Not removable
- Get a waterproof mattress protector
- 2вЂќ Avena foam on top (3.6 lb/ft density)
- Airflow, coolness, bounce
- 2вЂќ memory foam in the middle (3 lb/ft density)
- Body contouring and pressure relief
- 6вЂќ high density support foam on the bottom
- Strength, durability, support (1.8 lb/ft density)
Does it contain latex?(Fact #18)
No it doesnвЂ™t. Avena foam has latex qualities though it is more durable. ItвЂ™s actually polyurethane.
- CertiPUR-US certified
- No ozone depleters, PBDE flame retardants, mercury, lead, other heavy metals, formaldehyde, or phthalates
- Low VOCs (volatile organic compound)
What sizes and models does it come in?(Fact #19)
There is only one model and it comes in the following standard sizes:
WHATвЂ™S IN THE WARRANTY?
Leesa has a 10-year full replacement limited warranty (for defects). An indentation bigger than 1 inch qualifies as a defect. And the warranty is void if the mattress was not supported on a rigid flat foundation.(Fact #20)
Can I get it through international or APO (Army) shipping?(Fact #21)
LEESA BEDS VS THE COMPETITION
All of the mattresses compared here have their fans. Which one is better for you is a matter of preference. We have pointed out differences, some of which are very subtle.
CASPER VS LEESA
The Leesa is a bit better for coolness on top because of the breathability of the Avena top foam layer. ItвЂ™s also marginally better for minimal horizontal motion transfer.
Both are 10вЂќ mattresses but the CasperвЂ™s base is 1вЂќ higher, which means a bit less specialty foam on the Casper.
The Casper has a softer top layer and firmer next layer. With the Leesa, the вЂњsinking inвЂќ feels more gradual. The Casper feels softer, but the Leesa contours better.
The Leesa has a nicer cover. The Casper is slightly less expensive.
Loom & Leaf vs Leesa
Loom & LeafвЂ™s trial period is only 75 days versus 100, but both are more than enough time to decide if a mattress is right for you. The L&L has a 15 year warranty rather than the standard 10 year warranty that comes with the Leesa.
The Loom & Leaf uses plant-based foams, natural thistle flame retardant, and the cover is made of organic cotton. All of these make it more expensive though.
The Leesa is 10вЂќ thick and the L&L is 12вЂќ thick. The Loom & Leaf provides more compression support The Leesa is sleeker looking.
The Leesa is medium-firm (6/10) and the Loom & Leaf is the only mattress reviewed here that offers more than one model: medium-firm (6/10) and firm (8/10).
The Leesa comes compressed in a box and the Loom & Leaf is delivered and set up for you.
Purple vs Leesa
Both are medium-firm with the Purple being just a tad firmer.
The Leesa has the 2вЂќ Avena top layer, which is similar to latex for comfort and coolness, and it has the Lyrca cover. The Purple has a 2вЂќ hyper-elastic polymer top layer which is also similar to latex, but it one of the coolest mattresses ever. The polymer is put together in a way that optimizes airflow and the polymer itself doesnвЂ™t retain heat.
The biggest point in choosing between these mattresses is your weight: The Leesa is more consistent for different weights of people. The Purple is better appreciated by people over 150 lbs who will engage better with the polymer to get that вЂњhug.вЂќ
The Leesa is less expensive.
Tuft & Needle vs Leesa
There’s a more extensive review on this bed here. But both are medium-firm with the Tuft & Needle being a bit firmer (6/10 for Leesa and 7/10 for T&N).
The Tuft & Needle is quite inexpensive for such a good mattress.
The Leesa has more of the specialty foam, which gives a softer feel and is comfortable for most side sleepers and those that are heavier. It also has a much nicer cover.
TempurPedic Flex Supreme vs Leesa
For starters, the TempurPedic mattresses are much more expensive than the other mattresses reviewed here. But it is with good reason that they are the mattresses that others are compared to.
Like the Loom & Leaf, the Tempur-Flex Supreme doesnвЂ™t come compressed in a box. It comes with a crew who will set it up for you.
The TempurPedic is thicker than the Leesa (11.5вЂќ rather than 10вЂќ) and the cover is removable.
The Leesa is slightly firmer (6/10 versus 5/10) but the TempurPedic is fabulous for people who want to sink down deeper.
TempurPedic, as a policy, doesnвЂ™t describe their construction materials. It also doesnвЂ™t offer a money back guarantee вЂ“ you can only exchange it, and there is a charge for that.
The Eve Mattress Review
Updated: March 26, 2020 by Lauren Kendrick
- Motion Isolation
The Eve mattress builds upon a traditional memory-foam design with several new tricks and U.K.-made quality at a great price, backed by the best warranty we’ve ever seen.
- High qualityat great price -just $749(with coupon 100EVEXMAS)
- Best warrantyin the industry
- 100-nightrisk-free trial
- Only one firmness to choose from
- No in-room delivery
Full Eve Mattress Review
In this Eve Mattress Review, we’ll see if it delivers on its promise of an uncompromising sleeping experience.
What Type of Mattress is it?
The Eve mattress employs anall-foam, three-layer design that incorporates a proprietary blend at the very top. Eve is the second outing for a team that previously built the UK’s most popular online mattress brand, and both mattresses and covers areproduced in the heart of the England’s famed textile country.
With a single design stemming from feedback gleaned through selling tens of thousands of mattresses in the past, Eve aims to please the vast majority of sleepers at affordable price points.
Even at a first glance,Eve seems to check all the boxes that today’s shoppers expect.
Let’s look at the most popular questions we get from our readers:
How Firm is the Eve Mattress?
Eve falls on themedium-firmside of the scale, a range that tends to accommodate most.
The founders of the company emphasize that selling more than 75,000 mattresses with their previous venture helped them identify thissweet spot.
They launched Eve also tosimplify the mattress selection processas it’s usually way too complex and the results are anyway far from certain.
By offering one level of firmness only, they are confident that more people will simply be happier. And otherwise, there is a solid100-day satisfaction guarantee(see the details below).
Does the Eve Mattress Offer Good Motion Isolation?
Fairly dense foam throughout allows Eve todampen motion nicely, so a restless sleeper will be less likely to disturb a partner.
That also entails a less-lively feel, compared to some innerspring or latex mattresses, that a few could find unappealing, although Eve’s special upper layer helps mitigate this.
Will It Get Hot while Sleeping?
As with other high-end memory foam mattresses, Eve reflects some serious thinking about how to dissipate heat to keep sleepers cool.
The proprietary upper foam layer shoulders much of this duty, but the middle layer lends a hand, too, with30% improved airflow compared to conventional foam.
Most will find Eve apleasantly coolmattress to sleep on.
How Long Will It Last?
Eve can be expected to provide support and comfort fora decade or more, as its high-quality materials will hold up well under normal usage.
As usual, heavier and larger owners will inflict more wear, but even they can expect many years of comfortable sleep and support.
Is There a “New Mattress” Smell?
Abit of a smellcan be experienced when Eve is first removed from its packaging, but it will dissipate quickly. It has to do with the mattress being enclosed under vacuum for a few days and is definitelynot toxic.
The mattress has been certified by CertiPUR-US, which confirms that no nasty chemicals have been used in the manufacturing process.
How is the Eve Mattress Structured?
Eve uses a fairly conservative and time-tested,three-layer foam design:
- Comfort-Enhancing “New Generation” Upper Layer: The top layer of the mattress is the softest and most conforming of all. A proprietary“New Generation” memory foam blendhelps keep heat from building up and alsocontributes some of the bouncethat fans of latex and coil-spring mattresses sometimes miss.
- Transitional Memory Foam Middle Layer: The middle layer softens things up quite a bit, while also providing some of the cradling comfort memory foam is known for, in addition to 30% greaterairflowthan the norm.
- High Density Base Layer: finally, the bottom layer provides much of itssupport, with the relatively stiff foam compressing just a bit under forces transmitted from above.
Those layers are encased in apremium stretch-fabric cover knitted by handin the UK.
Although the Eve clocks in at a relatively slim10 inches in height, it offers satisfying support and comfort comparable to other mattresses of its type featuring greater heights.
What Are the Available Sizes?
Eve is available in all the usual American-market sizes:
As mentioned above, theheight for all models is 10 inches.
How is it Delivered? How Long Will it Take?
The Eve Mattress isdelivered for freein aconvenient boxthat will let you place the mattress wherever you prefer without worrying about tight passageway and narrow doors.
This also allows for lower packing costs and less waste of materials, contributing to thelow price tag.
Asthe box weighs about 90 lbs.and it will be delivered to your door only, just make sure you get some help in order not to injure your back!
The delivery time for mainland USA is7 working days. Did we sayit’s free?
Is it Easy to Unpack and Install?
It is as easy as opening a box and cuttingcarefullythe plastic wrapping with scissors, as the short video below demonstrates. Again, just be careful not to damage anything.
Once unpacked, the mattress will just takeabout an hourto be fully decompressed from its vacuum wrapping.
Does It Require a Special Foundation?
No. The firmness of the bottom layer allows Eve to match up well with everything from box springs to platforms of all kinds or even a bare floor.
Can I Use a Mattress Pad?
Eve will easily accept just about any mattress pad or topper. However, be aware that adding a mattress padmight modify the final firmness, affecting the ideal comfort the mattress was designed to provide. No harm in trying though.
As you can read below, on the other hand a mattress protector is encouraged to keep the mattress clean and increase its durability.
How Do I Care for the Eve Mattress?
The makers of Eve recommend the cover bespot cleanedwhen necessary, with no attempt to remove it for washing. In fact, a dedicated mattress protector is also recommended because of this.
Ideally,Eve should be rotated lengthwise once per monthfor the first year to ensure that the initial compaction of the lower foam layers is even.
Is Satisfaction Guaranteed?
Eve comes with a100-day trial period, withfree pickup and full refundif it turns out to be unsatisfactory.
There’s even an option totry Eve for 30 days without paying anything at allby signing up for a special offer at checkout on their official website.
What About the Warranty?
The Eve Mattress is backed by a10-year warrantyagainst defects, with full replacement if any problems appear, instead of the prorated coverage that some competitors offer.
Amazingly enough, when we challenged them on the warranty terms, they were very candid and told us thatthey don’t expect the mattress to deteriorate at all, except the usual wear and tear of course.
This means that this warranty has no limitations.It’s the first time we come across such confidence in a mattress’ long-term quality by its manufacturer.
How Much Does the Eve Mattress Cost?
Shipping included, Eve ranges in price from $449 for the Twin size to $749 for both regular and California King models, with the benchmarkQueen coming in at $649.
That puts it right in line with a fair amount of competition that similarly aims at delivering a 2000-dollar night’s sleep for a lot less.
Even in a crowded field, theEve Mattress stands out as an appealing option. The high-quality stretch-fabric cover, breathable middle section, and a top layer that provides a nice taste of coil-spring responsivenesswill impress many.
As this Eve Mattress Review should make clear, those who seek especially firm or soft mattresses will need to look elsewhere, but other shoppers focusing on this price range should findexcellent value and sleep-enhancing comfort.
