Leesa is one of a leading group of companies that has helped to popularize online mattress sales. While the company started out with just one mattress offering, they have since expanded, and their most recently launched option, the Leesa Legend, is an impressive luxury hybrid mattress.
In addition to the Leesa Legend, there are two other mattresses in the Leesa product line:
The Leesa Legend stands out from the other offerings because of its environmentally friendly use of recycled materials in both its cover and support core as well as its innovative multi-material comfort system.
This mattress offers significant pressure relief and motion isolation without sacrificing bounce, temperature regulation, or edge support. With a medium firm (6) feel, it is a solid fit for people in many sleeping positions and of all kinds of body sizes.
Watch the video below to see how the Leesa Legend performed when put to the test in the Sleep Foundation Lab.
The Leesa Legend is a hybrid mattress that employs a handful of innovative design elements that help make it distinct from many other hybrids on the market.
The cover of the Leesa Legend is made with a blend of multiple materials including polyester, organic cotton, Merino wool, rayon, spandex, and a material known as Recycled PES, which is derived from plastic that could otherwise end up in landfills. The cover is stretchy, breathable, and soft. It’s also a huge selling point for eco-conscious customers because each bed helps remove dozens of plastic bottles from the environment.
The Leesa Legend employs a multi-layer comfort system that includes several different materials. The top layer is one inch of polyfoam with mild contouring and an aerated structure that facilitates airflow. The second layer is one inch of pressure-relieving and motion-isolating memory foam.
The third layer of the comfort system features one of the new and innovative materials in the Leesa Legend. This layer is 1.5 inches and built with a mixture of micro-coils and polyfoam. In the center of the bed, this layer has softer polyfoam to cushion the hips and lumbar spine, but under the head and feet are bouncier micro-coils. This combination helps maintain edge support and responsiveness while reinforcing the midsection to enhance spinal alignment.
The final layer of the comfort system is one inch of transition polyfoam that decreases pressure on the support core, which is made up of two components. The main element of the support core is six inches of individually-wrapped innerspring coils. This type of coil creates a more tailored feel with less motion transfer. The coils are medium-thick (15 gauge), reinforced around the perimeter, and made principally of recycled steel.
The bottom layer of the support core is one inch of a high-density base polyfoam that helps maintain stability and cut down on possible noise from the movement of the coils.
With all of these layers working in conjunction, the Leesa Legend has a medium firm feel that rates around a six on the firmness scale.

The Leesa Legend was built to be a luxury hybrid with advanced features, and that is evident in its price point, which falls above the majority of other hybrids on the market. While it may be beyond the budget of many shoppers, it’s price isn’t unreasonably high, especially given its robust design and innovative materials.

The Leesa Legend can be purchased either online or in a physical store.
The only place to buy the Leesa Legend online is on the Leesa website. Unlike other Leesa mattress offerings, the Leesa Legend is not sold through Amazon.
Through its website, Leesa sells this mattress to customers throughout the United States (including Alaska and Hawaii) as well as to people in Canada, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
Customers who want to shop in a physical store can find the Leesa Legend at Leesa’s branded retail store, the Dream Gallery, in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Leesa works with several national retail stores — Macy’s, West Elm, and Pottery Barn — to sell their mattresses, but not all of those stores carry all Leesa products. Leesa has a Store Finder page on their website, and customers may want to inquire directly with Leesa or a local brick-and-mortar store about whether the Leesa Legend is in-stock and on the showroom floor.
The Leesa Legend comes with free standard shipping with UPS Ground. Normally within about a week, the mattress arrives at your doorstep. To enable shipping, the mattress is tightly compressed in plastic and then sent in a box.
To install the mattress, you bring the box to the room of your choice and remove all the packaging. The mattress will quickly decompress and reach its full size. Lifting the box and setting up the mattress should be done with two-to-three people.
Extra charges for shipping apply to deliveries outside the United States. Quotes for shipping, including prices and timelines, are available directly from Leesa.
Purchases made in a brick-and-mortar store may come with different delivery policies, so check with any retailer about the timeline and cost of shipping.
Within most parts of the contiguous United States, Leesa offers a White Glove delivery option. If customers select this delivery method, Leesa coordinates a time for technicians to come to your home and install the mattress. They will also remove an old mattress if needed.
White Glove delivery costs $150. To account for scheduling, White Glove installation may add an extra week to your mattress delivery time.
The Leesa Legend has a 100-night sleep trial. You are required to keep the bed for a 30-night break-in period. After 30 nights, you can return the mattress if you are not satisfied.
To facilitate returns, Leesa works with customers to help arrange for the mattress to be picked up from your home and then donated.
There are no return shipping or restocking fees, except for people in Alaska and Hawaii, who must pay $100 for return shipping. If you used White Glove delivery services, that $150 fee is non-refundable.
The warranty for the Leesa Legend lasts for 10 years and covers defects in manufacturing and materials. If a defect arises, Leesa will either repair or replace the mattress. The only charges to the customer for warranty service are those related to shipping.
