Avocado and Leesa are both online sellers of relatively firm mattresses with a latex-like feel, but their options come with different constructions at different price points. This post will compare the two brands so you can decide which is better for you.
- Both mattresses are relatively firm.
- Both incorporate latex or latex-like foam.
- Both brands offer 100-night trials.
- Both offer free shipping and have great customer service.
- Leesa is all foam, while Avocado incorporates coils.
- Leesa is less expensive. ($959 to $2,199 for Avocado; $525 to $1,070 for Leesa)
- Avocado offers an optional pillow-top and also uses natural materials.
- Avocado is thicker and comes in multiple thicknesses. (Leesa is 10″ thick. Avocado is 13″ thick with pillow-top and 11″ thick without.)
- Avocado’s cover is made with 100 percent organic cotton, which makes it breathable and soft to the touch.
- With the pillow-top, Avocado is 13″ thick. The pillow-top adds two inches, so without it the mattress is 11″ thick.
- The comfort layer is made of natural dunlop latex, a very durable material that provides good pressure relief and great bounce. This is the top surface layer in the model without a pillow top.
- The support layer contains a system of individually wrapped coils zoned to provide extra support where you need it most. This advanced coil system makes the mattress great for sleepers who weigh more.
- Leesa also starts with a latex feel on top. The first layer is 2″ of latex-like Avena foam, providing comfort and contour support.
- In the middle is 2″ of memory foam, which accounts for the pressure relief and contouring of the mattress.
- The base layer is 6″ of high-density foam.
- Both have relatively few layers and both have latex or latex-like materials.
- Avocado uses natural materials.
- Avocado’s coils make it more durable and supportive.
- Avocado offers a pillow-top, giving it more of a luxury feel.
- Leesa is thinner and is also all foam.
- Leesa’s top layer conforms better to contours.
Both are responsive and spring quickly back to shape, but Avocado has more bounce while Leesa is a little softer and slower moving.
Motion Transfer Differences
Both absorb movement well and would be good options for couples.
Pick Avocado If …
- You care about natural materials. Avocado uses natural latex and organic cotton, so if you are looking for a smaller eco-footprint, Avocado is the better option.
- You are a heavier person. Avocado’s coils and latex make this mattress more supportive and durable. The mattress is thicker overall, which can make it a more appropriate choice for heavier sleepers.
Pick Leesa If …
- You are on a budget. Leesa costs about $500 to $1,000 less than Avocado depending on which sizes and models you are comparing.
- You sleep in multiple positions. Leesa is a little softer and conforms better to contours. It was designed to fit as many types of sleepers as possible, making it an especially good choice for those who sleep in multiple positions.
These are two pretty different brands. Depending on your specific needs and priorities, one will be the better fit between the two. I hope this comparison was helpful. Please comment with any specific questions you have about the features and characteristics mentioned.
