Leesa Hybrid Mattress Review: Our Verdict

The Leesa Hybrid Mattress delivers on quality and value. Active response pocket springs at its core give the bed a springy and supportive feel, while four layers of carefully selected foam enhance its responsiveness, supportiveness, and contouring.

With multiple breathable features, the Leesa Hybrid Mattress is designed to stay cool and comfortable. The cover, the memory foam comfort layer, and the coil core are all engineered for airflow so that excessive heat can escape.

The medium firm feel and balance of contouring and support make the Leesa Hybrid Mattress appropriate for most sleepers, regardless of their weights and preferred sleep positions. This model should ease pressure around the hips and shoulders while also promoting proper spinal alignment. Since it can accommodate all positions and weight groups, it may be especially well suited for couples.

Choose The Leesa Hybrid if…

  • You and your partner have different position preferences.
  • You want a hybrid mattress at an affordable price.
  • You want a mattress with a sturdy edge you can sit or sleep on.
  • You sleep hot and want a cooling mattress that can disperse heat away from your body.

Keep Shopping if…

  • You prefer the extra hug and pressure relief of an all-foam mattress.
  • You awaken easily when your partner moves during the night and prefer exceptional motion isolation.
  • You would rather buy a more budget-friendly or high-end model, in which case you might prefer the Leesa or the Leesa Legend respectively.

How Much Is the Leesa Hybrid Mattress?

The Leesa Hybrid is slightly more affordable than most comparable hybrid models. The Leesa Legend is the company’s higher-priced hybrid model that comes with added luxury features, such as Merino wool and microcoils. However, if you’re seeking overall quality and value, the Leesa Hybrid is a solid choice given the quality of the materials and design.

How Does the Leesa Hybrid Mattress Feel?

On a scale of 1 to 10 where 10 is extremely firm, the Leesa Hybrid Mattress rates close to the middle at a 6 (medium firm). This rating means the Leesa Hybrid Mattress is good for a wide variety of individuals, providing support for side, stomach, and back sleepers.

The responsive, individually wrapped spring coils give this mattress a supportive and responsive feel, preventing sleepers from sinking too deeply into the mattress while providing bounce. Thanks to the Leesa Hybrid’s three-layer comfort and transition system, sleepers should also experience a gentle pressure-relieving hug for added comfort.

What Is the Leesa Hybrid Made of?

Cover Material

The Leesa Hybrid comes with a seamless knitted white and gray polyester blend cover. Quilting softens the surface, while Leesa’s signature four-stripe design gives it a distinctive look.

Comfort Layers

The top layer of 1.5-inch breathable polyfoam helps sleepers stay cool through small holes engineered to increase airflow. Next, a 1.5-inch layer of contouring memory foam cradles the body, relieving pressure around the shoulders and hips without sacrificing much-needed spinal support.

Transition Layers

Directly on top of the support core lies a firmer 1-inch polyfoam layer designed to act as a barrier to prevent sleepers from sinking in against the firm coil core.

Support Core

The core of this hybrid mattress is made up of over 1,000 individually wrapped 14.5-gauge steel active response pocket springs that give the bed bounce and support. They’re also designed to prevent motion transfer so that a sleeper won’t feel every vibration when their partner moves. Thanks to perimeter edge support, most individuals should be able to sit or sleep comfortably along the edge without feeling like they may roll off.

The Leesa Hybrid’s coil core rests on a 1-inch base layer of high-density polyfoam designed to support the pocket springs and increase the lifespan of the mattress.

Does It Isolate Motion?

Rating 3/5

The Leesa Hybrid Mattress earns average motion isolation scores. For most couples, this mattress should absorb vibrations well enough to limit sleep disturbances caused by one partner moving. The layers of responsive foam dampen movement, and the pocketed coils give the bed bounce while limiting the spread of motion. However, light sleepers or those who share a bed with an especially restless partner or pet might want a mattress with the highest level of motion isolation.

Does It Sleep Cool?

Rating 4/5

The Leesa Hybrid Mattress rates well in terms of temperature regulation, providing sleepers with a cool night’s sleep. The unique top comfort layer of hole-punched foam allows cooling air circulation so that body heat can escape. The coil core is also highly breathable, further promoting heat dissipation.

Will It Sag Along the Edges?

Rating 4/5

Thanks to its pocketed coil core, the Leesa Hybrid does a great job at preventing sagging along the edges. Mattresses that sag along the perimeter could cause sleepers to gravitate towards the center of the bed or even accidentally roll off the side. The Leesa Hybrid Mattress allows sleepers to spread out and use the entire surface of the mattress comfortably. This mattress’s edge support makes it easier for sleepers to get into and out of bed and sit comfortably along the sides.

Is It Good for Sex?

Rating 4/5

The Leesa Hybrid Mattress earns high marks with couples looking for a suitable surface for sex. The Leesa Hybrid Mattress integrates responsive wrapped coils for bounce and a contouring, breathable polyfoam comfort layer adds a combination of multi-directional support, heat distribution, and responsive comfort, making the Leesa Hybrid suitable for sleeping and sex.

What About Off-gassing?

Rating 3/5

The foam manufacturing process generates volatile organic compounds (VOCs). While usually considered harmless, they can produce an odor that’s strongest when the mattress is first opened. These smells will dissipate after the plastic covering is removed and the new mattress is allowed to breathe.

The Leesa Hybrid’s off-gassing is similar to most models that contain synthetic foam and ship compressed. If you are sensitive to smells, you can leave the mattress in a separate room to air out for a few days before introducing it into your bedroom.

What Type of Sleeper Is the Leesa Hybrid Mattress Best for?

Due to its hybrid construction, the Leesa Hybrid Mattress performs as well as or better than other Leesa models for nearly all sleepers regardless of their size and preferred sleeping position.

Side Sleepers

The Leesa Hybrid earns high ratings from most side sleepers. Side sleeping typically puts the most pressure on the hips and shoulders. The Leesa Hybrid’s layers of contouring foam and supportive individually wrapped spring coils adjust to a side sleeper’s shape to relieve pressure while promoting healthy sleep posture.

Combination Sleepers

Because of its combination of coils and foam, the Leesa Hybrid provides the support and motion reduction combination sleepers need. Most sleepers will find the mattress comfortable for all sleep positions and easy to move on, making it easy to switch throughout the night. Since the Leesa Hybrid absorbs vibrations well, a combination sleeper’s partner also shouldn’t feel every time they change positions.

Back Sleepers

Back sleepers rate the Leesa Hybrid Mattress the highest. Its medium firm feel gives back sleepers much-needed support to prevent their hips from sinking too deeply into the mattress. The polyfoam and memory foam comfort layers also provide gentle cradling for added comfort and spinal support. Proper alignment is key for comfort, making the supportive coils and structured foam layers of this model ideal for many back sleepers.

Stomach Sleepers

Stomach sleepers rate the Leesa Hybrid Mattress as above average. Lying on the stomach tends to put more force on the middle of the mattress due to extra weight around a sleeper’s midsection. This can cause the hips to sink in excessively, creating a u-shaped curve in the lower back. The Leesa Hybrid’s firm transition layer, supportive coil core, and medium firm feel provide even support that can help keep a stomach sleeper’s spine well aligned, especially if the individual weighs less than 130 pounds.

How Does Body Weight Impact the Leesa Hybrid Mattress' Performance?

Overall, the Leesa Hybrid Mattress is a good mattress for all body types This mattress is supportive enough to keep heavier individuals from sinking in too deeply, while the contouring layers of foam provide enough contouring for those with smaller frames.

Is It Good for Couples?

The Leesa Hybrid is especially well suited to couples. It earns high marks for motion transfer, edge support, and sex, which are typically among the most important performance categories for couples to consider. A sleeper shouldn’t feel a lot of vibrations when their partner moves, they should be able to use the full surface of the bed, and the mattress should accommodate both sleeping and sex.

Additionally, the Leesa Hybrid performs well across all weight groups and sleep positions, so partners with different body types and/or position preferences should be able to rest comfortably.
