Who Might Choose

#BestPillowEver…

  • Someone who wants 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.
  • Those on a budget. 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…

  • People who like charitable aspects of shopping. The pillow is part of Leesa’s One-Ten Program, which means one pillow will be donated for every ten pillows sold.
  • Side sleepers. 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…

  • Sleepers who prefer the feel of latex foamThe #BestPillowEver is made with blended Talalay latex foam and Leesa’s pillow is filled with proprietary Avena foam – a performance blend that has latex characteristics (it’s considered a latex alternative). Both of these pillows have latex-like qualities, including a resilient feel and quick response time.
  • Those who 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 – individuals can launder them both as well as needed.

Overall

There are many reasons to love both of these pillows. For those who want comfort level options, the #BestPillowEver may be the best fit for anyone who loves 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.
