You Might Choose…

#BestPillowEver If…

  • You want firmness options. The pillow comes with two comfort options: Plush and Firm. Back sleepers will most likely benefit from the Plush version, while side sleepers will probably find the Firm a more comfortable option. Stomach sleepers may struggle with the 7″ height profile and supportive foam feel.
  • You want to spend the least amount of money possible. A Queen size #BestPillowEver retails for $59.99 while the Standard size Leesa pillow is $75. This makes the Queen #BestPillowEver the least expensive option.

Leesa If…

  • You like a charitable aspect to shopping. The pillow is part of Leesa’s One-Ten Program, which means one pillow will be donated for every ten pillows sold.
  • You are a side sleeper. The Leesa pillow is 5″ in height and offers a decent firmness and support. While everyone’s weight and height vary, this should be a good pillow for most side sleepers to get comfortable with.

Either If…

  • You like the bouncier feel of latex foamThe #BestPillowEver is made with blended Talalay latex foam and Leesa’s pillow is filled with Avena foam – a performance fabric that has latex characteristics (it’s considered a latex alternative). Both pillows have latex-like qualities, including a bouncy feel and quick response time.
  • You like covers that are easy to clean. The soft knitted covers on both of these pillows are easily removable with a zipper on the side of the pillow. You can launder them both as well as needed.

Overall

There are many reasons to love both of these pillows. If you want comfort level options, the #BestPillowEver may be the best fit for you and people who love the Avena foam layer on Leesa’s mattress may enjoy it in a pillow as well.

Luckily both pillows come with trial periods that help mitigate the risk of finding the right pillow.
