More and more of us are incurring a sleep deficit that’s having negative impacts on our mental and physical health. Ideally, we’re all supposed to be getting at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep a day. However, due to a multitude of reasons, we’re only getting 5 to 6 hours a day or less. While always being on the go and distractions from technology are certainly factors in our sleep deficit, our mattress also plays a pivotal role. Most of us tend to sleep on mattresses that have long ‘expired’ and are no longer suited in providing us with restful sleep.
If you consistently wake up with aches, pains, and headaches, you may want to consider switching out your mattress to something that’s able to provide you with the necessary comfort and support. It can be overwhelming to find a mattress due to the number of mattresses that are on the market.
A Closer Look
To help you with your search, we’ll be looking at the Loom & Leaf and Leesa Mattress – two mattresses that are rising in popularity. While the Leesa Mattress has a combination of LSA 200 foam and memory foam for the perfect feel, Loom & Leaf has a unique swirling cooling gel technology and environmentally friendly premium foam that provides you with supreme comfort.
A Breakdown of the Leesa Mattress
While there are a number of mattress companies available on the market, one of the most popular mattress companies around is the Leesa company. Its popularity is attributed to it being one of the pioneer companies in having your bed conveniently packed inside a box and delivered directly to your home. The company also continually improves its mattresses to cater to different sleeper’s individual preferences.
Recently, the Leesa Company has updated their Leesa by replacing the comfort layer with LSA 200 foam instead of Avena foam. By improving the mattress with this new and improved foam, the Leesa Company hopes to resolve the issues that sleepers commonly face with memory foam mattresses – feeling like they’ve been swallowed by the mattress, as well as the memory foam material making them feel warm. The other layers also work together in providing the sleeper with adequate support and cool comfort. While there is additional support from the other layers, you won’t have to worry about losing that comfortable feeling of slowly sinking into the mattress.
Top Layer – Iconic four-stripe cover
The top layer of the bed has a gorgeous colorful look that’s sure to catch your attention. Thereafter, you’ll notice the plush and silky feel of the cover. The cover is also woven with a blend of thicker polyester material to keep you comfortable and rested throughout the night. It’s also easy to remove the cover if you require that it be sent for cleaning.
Second Layer – Comfort layer with two-inches of memory foam
The comfort layer was initially constructed with Avena foam but is now made with LSA 200 foam instead. Both foams are made with a material that’s similar to latex and provides the mattress with a notable bounce. The LSA 200 foam, however, also comes with its own set of benefits including keeping the mattress cool and allowing the sleeper to feel like they’re resting on a cloud.
Third Layer –Recovery layer with two-inches of memory foam
After you’ve gotten the bouncier LSA 200 foam from the comfort layer above, the recovery foam is also constructed with two inches of memory foam. The memory foam gives the sleeper the perfect contour and also helps in relieving pressure. This memory foam layer is placed to provide sleepers with that traditional memory foam comfort, hugs the body, and helps in transitioning the sleeper to the firmer dense core foam below.
Fourth Layer – Support layer with six-inches of dense core foam
After the LSA 200 foam and the soft memory foam, you’ll get a firmer dense core foam that’s constructed with poly-foam material. This layer makes up the foundation of the bed and is meant to provide much-needed support. Since this layer totals 6-inches, it’ll be adequate in providing the right amount of support to a multitude of sleepers.
The Leesa model only comes in one firmness level – a medium firmness of 6.5 that’s just a tad firmer than the average mattress. As most individuals prefer a medium firmness level, the Leesa Mattress’s firmness is meant to cater to most sleepers. The balance in firmness is due to the combination of both the LSA 200 foam along with the memory foam. While the LSA 200 foam provides that bounce, the memory foam has a softer layer which strikes that perfect balance.
Since the bed is a little firmer than most other foam mattresses, it’s great for those that prefer to sleep on their back or stomach as there’s additional support in the shoulder, and lumbar region.
If you have a tendency to be a side sleeper, however, you may not get the amount of contouring that you need from the firmness of the Leesa Mattress.
After noticing the colorful cover and how soft it is to the touch, you’ll notice yourself comfortably sinking into the Leesa Mattress. You’ll get the plush sink in feeling from the memory foam layer of the bed along with pressure relief. You won’t sink in too far, however, as the LSA 200 foam provides sufficient bounce to prop your body atop of the mattress.
Both of the foam layers also work together in providing the bed with more bounce than traditional memory foam mattresses. Due to the bouncier feel, the mattress also has an excellent response to pressure. All the layers are able to come together in providing the sleeper with the right balance of firmer support, along with the softness of memory foam.
Universal Adaptive Feel
The Leesa Mattress is intentionally constructed to have the layers work together in providing the sleeper with comfortable, and restful sleep. A standout feature of the Leesa is a unique feature called the universal adaptive feel. With this feature, both the memory foam, and the LSA 200 foam work together in adapting to your sleep position, and individual body shape.
A Breakdown of the Loom and Leaf Mattress
Similar to the Leesa Mattress, Loom & Leaf bed is also made with memory foam. However, a Loom & Leaf Mattress have incorporated unique technologies within its mattress to help resolve specific issues that sleepers may face. One of the Loom & Leaf Mattress layers, for example, has a specially designed cooling gel that’s been incorporated into the mattress. Also known as the cooling spinal gel, this layer is meant to keep you feeling cool and comfortable at night while also supporting your spine.
While its technologies are indeed a standout feature, the Loom & Leaf also strives to create a mattress that suits individuals with different sleep position preferences. The Loom and Leaf Company also markets the mattress as being beneficial to one’s health as it’s able to improve circulation and help with joint pain relief.
Top Layer – Organic cotton and quilt
The Loom and Leaf Mattress has a breathable cover that’s made with soft organic cotton. For added comfort, the cover also has a layer of foam and plant-based mesh called natural thistle to lull you to sleep at night.
