Tomorrow Sleep and Leesa are two popular mattress companies that sell directly online. Leesa has been a very popular brand since its launch a few years ago, and Tomorrow Sleep is backed by the biggest manufacturer of mattresses in the country. So, which one should you choose? Here’s a rundown of the similarities and differences between them to give you a better idea.
- Both incorporate memory foam and are 10 inches thick
- Both are in a similar price range
- Both address the issue of sleeping hot with their construction.
- Both offer a 100-night trial, free shipping, and great customer service.
- Leesa uses foam as a support layer, while Tomorrow Sleep uses pocketed coils.
- Tomorrow Sleep has two comfort level options; Leesa has only one.
- Leesa is firmer and has more bounce, while Tomorrow Sleep has more of a true memory foam feel.
- Both Tomorrow Sleep options are softer than Leesa, and have more of a memory foam feel.
- Leesa’s top layer has latex-like qualities, while Tomorrow Sleep’s top layer is memory foam.
- Tomorrow Sleep has a foam side rail system for extra edge support.
Tomorrow Sleep Medium Soft Construction
- The cover uses a blend of polyester and nylon that doesn’t affect the overall feel of the mattress significantly.
- 1 inch of dense memory foam with phase change material comprises the top layer.
- 2 inches of less-dense foam that uses gel provide additional comfort and some bounce beneath the top layer.
- The individually pocketed coils enter in when you get to the support layer. This 6-inch layer is highly supportive, and uses durable materials that also help with motion isolation.
- A foam side rail system provides extra edge support.
- At the base of the mattress is 1 inch of stabilizing foam.
Tomorrow Sleep Medium Firm Construction
- This version uses the same thin polyester blend cover as the softer mattress.
- The top layer is also 1 inch of memory foam, but this foam is less dense than the top layer of the soft mattress. It also includes phase change material.
- The next layer is 0.5 inch of breathable comfort foam with gel.
- The next layer is 1.5 inches of “dynamic response foam,” which feels similar to memory foam.
- The 6-inch support layer is constructed same way as the Medium Soft version, but the coils use thicker wire.
- The side rail system is the same as the Medium Soft version.
- Also like the softer mattress, there is 1 inch of stabilizing foam at the base.
Leesa has a simpler construction than Tomorrow Sleep:
- The top comfort layer is comprised of 2 inches of cooling foam.
- 2 inches memory foam act as a support layer under the top foam layer and provides additional pressure relief and body contouring.
- A 6-inch high density foam layer forms the base, which is a pretty standard base layer for all-foam mattresses available online.
- Leesa has more bounce than Tomorrow Sleep because of the latex-like top layer.
- Despite the use of springs, you’ll sink into Tomorrow Sleep a bit more than the Leesa. This is especially the case with the softer version of Tomorrow Sleep.
- Both sleep cool for most people, although Leesa may have a slight edge with this characteristic.
- While both mattresses are durable, Tomorrow Sleep has a slight edge in my opinion because it uses coils as the support layer.
- Leesa is firmer than both versions of Tomorrow Sleep.
Watch the videos below to get a sense of how the mattresses respond to pressure. Note that the tomorrow sleep video is for the Medium Firm version, so expect the soft version to be softer and have more give. You’ll notice that Leesa offers a little more bounce.
Motion Transfer Differences
The videos below show off the differences in motion isolation. While both do a respectable job at preventing motion from transferring, Tomorrow Sleep has an edge due to its softness and memory foam feel.
Pick Tomorrow Sleep If:
- Memory foam is your friend– If you’ve had success with memory foam mattresses in the past, you might like Tomorrow Sleep better than Leesa. Despite its coils, Tomorrow Sleep has a memory foam feel.
- You sleep on your side– Both versions of Tomorrow Sleep are softer than Leesa, making it a better option for side sleepers because it will conform better to your contours.
Pick Leesa If:
- You sleep on your stomach or back– Leesa is firmer, making it more supportive for back and stomach sleepers.
- You want some bounce– Given its latex-like quality, you’ll feel like you’re sleeping on the Leesa and not in it. People who worry about feeling too glued to their mattress in the morning may like this sort of spring.
These are all great options for mattresses, but different people have different preferences. I hope I’ve made it easier for you to find the right match for your own sleep style. Please leave any specific questions you may have in the comments.
