How To Shop For A Mattress

So you’ve probably been scouring the Internet or maybe you’ve even been brave enough to visit a couple of mattress or furniture stores. With all of the types of mattresses, box springs, latex, foams, foundations, coils and more, it can be overwhelming. But in truth, there’s never been a better time to shop for a mattress. And advances in the industry have made it easier than ever.

Basic Rules For Mattress Shopping

  • Don’t be overwhelmed. Take your time. There are so many resources available.

  • Explore your sleep preferences. Make a list of how you sleep and how your partner sleeps and start there.

  • Don’t be pressured. You can visit your local retailers to discover your preferences in firmness, make and style of mattress you prefer, but no one should pressure you to buy immediately.

  • Know your budget and stick to it. Upsell is the industry standard, so be prepared to stand firm.

  • Don’t always believe the hype. Those “cents on the dollar” mattresses manage to become “dollar on the dollar” mattresses. Be aware that there is a tremendous markup at retailers for overhead, warehousing, commissions, etc. (Another key benefit to purchasing online)

What Are These Beds Delivered In Boxes I Keep Seeing Online?

If you’ve been doing any research online, you’re bound to have seen the latest trend in the mattress industry – the memory foam mattress that you order online and have delivered right to your front door. The Leesa mattress has earned a stellar reputation in the past few years for delivering an exceptional sleep experience mailed to customers across the country and around the world.

Why Should I Buy A Mattress Online?

We realize that there may be some reservation about buying a mattress you haven’t been able to try out in a retail location. But, our way is better. Sitting on a bed or lying on a bed in a florescent-lit showroom for ten minutes isn’t a good indicator of how you’ll actually sleep on a mattress.

To see how a mattress will fully impact your sleep, you need to try your mattress in your own home environment and have a full-on, multi-night sleeping experience to truly realize the maximum benefits of your mattress.

That’s why with every Leesa Mattress, we offer our 100-night risk-free trial. If you don’t fall in love with your Leesa, you can return it for a full refund.

How Is It Possible To Fit A Mattress In A Box?

Advances in foam technologies have turned the mattress industry on its head. Memory foam mattresses like the Leesa are compressed and vacuum sealed -- the mattresses are both durable and flexible enough to be rolled, packaged and shipped safely to your home. No more scheduling wide delivery time windows. No more middle men. No more high-pressure salespeople hovering over you while you pretend to lie comfortably on a box spring mattress in the middle of a light-filled showroom.

How Does The Mattress Keep Its Shape?

The multiple layers of foam used in the Leesa Mattress are a unique blend of viscoelastic, memory and polyurethane foams that are able to be rolled, compressed and vacuum sealed for ease of delivery. Once you open the plastic covering on your Leesa Mattress, the Leesa mattress instantly begins to breathe and expand into its originally designed shape. For maximum comfort and performance, allow your Leesa to expand for 24 hours before sleeping on it.

How long Can a Memory Foam Mattress Stay In The Box?

Purchasing a Leesa Mattress online is a unique experience in that your bed is made only after you order it. You never have to worry about it sitting in a showroom or a dark warehouse overseas. The Leesa Mattress, which takes two to four days to craft, is made here in the USA and shipped to you. To get the full benefit and full decompression of your Leesa, we recommend that you unbox it within 30 – 60 days.

Again, because your mattress is custom made and shipped, there’s no need to worry about the foams losing integrity as the result of being compressed and stored too long.

The Leesa mattress was designed to deliver full rest and recovery with full support and body contouring. Our R&D team worked with top mattress professionals to develop our three-layer foam Leesa Mattress. Three different types and densities of foam are layered to create the ultimate combination of support and comfort.
