How many of you out there love your bed? (Nervously looks around the room.) How many of you have slept on, or are sleeping on, hand-me-down mattresses? (Guilty hand raise.) How many of you opted for the cheaper mattress model because it was “good enough” for now? (Another guilty hand with shameful eyes.) You see, I’m the type of person who never really cared where she slept. I’m flexible! I can sleep anywhere! Little did I know, a company called Leesa was about to teach me a lesson in the art of comfort sleeping.
I ordered my Leesa mattress with free shipping online, which was seamless and easy. However, if you’re like me and the thought of ordering a mattress online without ever touch-testing it first sounds ridiculous to you, don’t close your browser just yet. Leesa offers a 100-night satisfaction guarantee, free pickup and free returns! Brilliant, I’m already sold.
My mattress came in a small box no taller than me a few days later. I unboxed the top and found the only set of the instructions, complete with 5 steps: unbox, position, unwrap, expand, sleep. Seems simple enough! Once I unwrapped the mattress, it started to come to life, hissing and expanding. It was such a trip to see this pillow-top of a thing expand into a 10” thick, queen-size mattress!
Not pictured: my boyfriend helping me set up the mattress. You’ll need the extra hands or else you’ll end up smushed against the window. (Guilty hands again.) Also, if you’re wondering which way is the right end, refer to the box – the four stripes should be at the end of the bed. +2 cool points to Leesa for awesome brand packaging!
Let me just say, my life is forever changed. It actually makes me a little mad that I’ve been wasting all this time not sleeping on a Leesa because I have never known comfort like this before. The Leesa mattress has multiple layers that provides durable support and keeps me cool (which in turn keeps me from bed-hogging when I try to find those cool spots in the middle of the night). The 2″ memory foam also prevents my boyfriend from waking me up when he leaves for work at 6 AM. And the comfort factor? Beyond words. With my white linen bedding, I now know what “sleeping on a cloud” means. Honestly, this mattress is the answer to all the bed-related problems I’ve been ignoring for years.
If you’re someone who’s sleeping on a hand-me-down mattress or just need a mattress upgrade, good news! Leesa is offering Design Milk readers a special $75 off offer code and free shipping – use code DESIGN75. An added bonus? For every 10 mattresses they sell, Leesa donates one mattress to homeless shelters so that someone in need can also get a good night’s sleep. A life-changing mattress delivered free to your door and has a mission to do good? The only hard part is figuring out what size, or how many…
(And if you’re concerned, don’t worry. This beautiful mattress has also been Conan-approved. Now you definitely don’t have any excuses to get a Leesa!)
