Leesa mattress, from $595

Leesa gives shoppers the option between its popular multilayer foam mattress and a luxury hybrid. Both get high praise from around the web and the brand donates one mattress for every 10 sold. If you’re on the fence about buying a mattress online, you can check out both models at your local West Elm store.

Both beds adapt to all body types and sleeping styles, and feature a cooling top layer. With over 13,000 5-star reviews, it’s easy to see why Leesa is a bestseller. “Set up was extremely easy, just unroll and walk away. I was hesitant the first night to try this new mattress as I have a very severe back complaint,” said a 5-star reviewer. “My seized back is what wakes me in the morning. I have to literally crawl sideways out of bed. Imagine how surprised I was when I woke the next morning with no pain. I quite literally jumped out of bed, much to the shock of my husband. I have yet to be awakened because of a sore back … For me, it has saved my back.”

The craftsmanship: Leesa mattresses are made in the U.S. and both styles feature a top cooling foam layer and 2-inch contouring memory foam layer right underneath. With the foam mattress, you’ll get a 6-inch foam base and with the Sapira, a spring core of over 1,000 individually wrapped coils.
