In 2020, a lot of mattresses are electronic and can be operated via your smartphone. Even though these products offer some convenience, their setup process can be a nightmare. 

If you’re looking for a mattress with a simple setup process, the mattress Leesa Original Studio is right for you. 

Most users have had good things to say about the setup. It only requires one person, so you don’t have to worry about any heavy lifting or complicated tasks. 

When the Leesa original arrives at your home, it will be compressed inside a bed box. You’ll want to move the bed in a box to your bedroom for the most seamless setup before opening it.

Once the bed in a box is where you want it to be, proceed with opening it. Avoid puncturing the Leesa mattress as you unbox it from the bed box. If you’re taking the mattress out of the bed box on your own, you may have to use your foot to hold the bed box in place as you pull the mattress out. 

Place the Studio mattress on any slatted or solid bed foundation like brick and mortar. You can remove the top outer layer of plastic. 

At this point, you should notice your Leesa mattress begins to expand. You can unfold and unwrap it so you have access to the inner layer of plastic. Carefully remove this inner layer of practice and watch your Studio unfold more. It only takes about an hour for it to completely expand. However, you may have to wait several days before the mattress reaches its full firmness and it’s good to use. 

As easy as the setup process is, you may not have time or patience for it. You can always select the “in-home delivery” option when you place your Leesa online order. For an additional fee, Leesa’s white glove delivery providers can complete the setup process for you. 


studio by leesa review construction

Before you purchase the Studio by Leesa mattress, you should know how is it’s foam construction and read the review construction. This will help you understand how it will feel and if it’ll meet your needs.


The first component of the Studio mattress is the blue cover. It’s very thin, lightweight, and breathable. It’s meant to protect the rest of the Leesa mattress. It doesn’t provide any kind of support, so it won’t affect how the mattresses foams feel like. 


The Studio’s foam layers are as follows:

  • Top: The top layer has a 1.5″ of contouring memory foam. This kind of memory top foam is more responsive than standard memory foam is. It’s open-celled, which helps keep the top of the mattress more breathable. 
  • Middle: The middle or the second layer is also 1.5″ thick with high density, but it is made of a regular memory foam mattress. As the middle layer, it serves as a transitioning point to the thicker bottom layer.
  • Bottom: The bottom layer is 7″ of base foam that offers back sleepers and side sleepers feel great support. 

These three layers make up the Studio’s 10″ height, which is just what you want in a standard mattress Leesa. No matter if you get a Twin XL, a Queen Size, a California King, or any size in between, this mattress stands at 10 inches thick high density. 

How Does the Studio Feel?

Knowing what the Studio consists of, isn’t enough information to determine if it’s a worthwhile purchase. You should be familiar with how it feels and if you like the Original Leesa mattress.

[lasso ref=”studioleesa” id=”2592″ link_id=”3655″]

Leesa describes the Studio original Leesa to feel as “medium-firmness” so it isn’t too hard nor too yielding. Leesa mattresses offer a perfect middle ground. 

Learn how your body type and good sleeping positions can influence your experience like the Leesa mattress does. With medium firmness feel, solid support, and the pressure relief of memory foam, there is something for everyone.

How Does the Studio Feel for Different Body Types?

The Leesa Studio mattress was mainly designed with lightweight sleepers in mind. Those weight sleepers under 130 pounds will experience optimal support no matter their sleeping positions. Pressure Relief presented in the comfort system of the Leesa Original provides a high quality sleep.

Average weight side sleepers (between 130 and 230 pounds) may feel added pressure on their hips and shoulders, but this can be managed if they adjust their sleeping position. Side sleepers like a balanced foam feel. Those who weigh 200 lbs or less are going to feel all the pressure relief they need. Pressure relief and contouring are key features side sleepers should look for in a mattress.

Heavyweight people (those who weigh above 230 pounds) likely won’t get the support they need from the Studio and will be better off using a heavier quality mattress like the Purple Hybrid Mattress

Will the Studio Feel Different Based on My Sleep Position?

Owners of the Studio will get the most restorative sleep by laying on their backs. The top layer of memory foam Leesa mattresses let the butt and hips sink in. However, the two foam layers, the middle, and bottom prevent your body from sinking in too far. The proprietary foam from the comfort layer is firm and has an excellent spinal alignment, which may help prevent waking up with aches and pains, especially on the lower back.

Side sleeping is the second-best position for Studio owners. Lightweight individuals and side sleepers may be able to get away with sleeping on their sides, but it can cause hips and shoulders discomfort for heavier-set people. Side sleepers who require pressure relief on their shoulders and hips. Side sleepers have further needs for pressure relief than back stomach positions. 

Stomach sleeping is a no-go for anyone using the original Leesa mattress. Even though it is a medium-firm on the firmness scale, it’s not firm enough for stomach sleepers. Even those back and stomach sleepers who weigh 130 pounds or less will sink too far down on their stomachs. If you are part of solely stomach sleepers, you should look into purchasing a different Leesa mattress with a more firmness feel like. Sleeping on a Leesa original mattress, you’re not likely to feel stuck in the bed at all.

Other Considerations for the Studio

Here are some more factors to think about when you’re thinking about buying the Studio by Leesa original firm mattress:


If you have trouble regulating your body temperature at night, Studio from Leesa may present some issues. It’s a foam mattress, so it will naturally trap more heat than other materials. Restless sleepers may break out into a sweat at night. If you purchase this Leesa mattress, try to keep your bedroom a few degrees cooler than normal, because you will tend to sleep hot. 

With that being said, the breathable cover and open-celled top layer should prevent you from overheating.

Motion Transfer

If you’re going for combination sleepers to share your bed with a partner or pet, motion transfer is something you should think about. If you get up and move around in the middle of the night, you want to create as little disturbance as possible, and vice versa with whoever you’re sharing the bed with. Speaking of couples and motion isolation, Leesa also made a list of the best mattresses with extra cushioning. Motion Isolation is important with any mattress.

Memory foam is one of the best materials to limit motion transfer. The top layer of the Leesa mattress is made of memory foam, so it does a pretty good job of limiting motion. However, this top isn’t super thick, so it isn’t foolproof. 

[lasso ref=”studioleesa” id=”2592″ link_id=”3656″]

Edge Support

The edge support is one of the areas where Studio from Leesa falls behind. When you sit near the edge of the bed, there is enough edge support so that you can lean over and tie your shoes. However, you risk falling off the side when you lay to near the edge of this Leesa mattress. When you lie down on any of the mattress’s edges, your weight will cause the Leesa mattress to collapse. 

This flaw doesn’t affect the mattress’s overall durability. However, it can be a pain in the shoulders and hips if you sprawl around and end up on the edges in the middle of the night. 

The lack of edge support of Leesa mattress may also make it difficult to enjoy lounging in your bed. If you want to lie back and read a book or watch a movie, you’ll need to position yourself closer to the center to be comfortable. This can be difficult to do if you’re sharing the bed with a pet or partner.  


Noise ties into motion transfer. Ideally, your mattress should create as little noise as possible, as you don’t want to create a disturbance when you get in and out of bed throughout the night. 

The Studio doesn’t have any springs, so it doesn’t make a lot of excess noise when you move around on it. 

This all-foam mattress the Leesa is practically silent. The same isn’t true for innerspring or Leesa hybrid mattress, as their components tend to squeaky noises.


If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of off-gassing, it’s basically when a new item emits volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other chemicals into the indoor air. 

As unpleasant as this sounds, it’s just one of the side effects of buying a newly manufactured product.

Like many other foam mattresses, the Leesa original is associated with some off-gassing. The Studio emits a faint chemical smell that lasts for up to 48 hours. You can get rid of the smell faster by keeping the mattress in a well-ventilated room. 

The Studio’s off-gassing shouldn’t deter you from buying the Leesa bed in a box. The smell won’t linger beyond two days.

Plus, a mattress is something you’ll be using every day, so you want to ensure you have a new, fresh product. Dealing with off-gassing from a new mattress for a few days is better than buying a used and unclean product. 


From our experience, you should get about 10 years of use out of the Studio from Leesa. Some users have been able to hang onto theirs for even longer than that. 

This product doesn’t have any coils or box springs that are prone to breaking. Its simple design and construction allow it to outlast a lot of mattresses on the market. 

What Are the Studio’s Benefits?

The Studio is a reliable Leesa mattress with responsive memory foam that releases pressure points in your shoulders and hips.

With that being said, Studio from Leesa it’s a pretty basic mattress without any fancy features. However, it has some great benefits that you should be aware of:

  • Ozone depleters
  • Lead, mercury, and other heavy metals

This Leesa mattress is also very low in VOC (volatile organic compounds) emissions for indoor air quality. VOC levels are always less than 0.5 parts per million.

Am I An Ideal Candidate for the Studio by Leesa?

As great as the Leesa mattress is, it may not fit your individual needs, as you can read on the review and specifications website page. 

We recommend the Studio for lightweight back sleepers who are not sharing their bed. Even though the Studio can fit two, its construction is better meant for the solo sleeper who doesn’t have high support needs. Those who like a balanced foam feel and sleep on their back or side will enjoy the Leesa original.

If you are more heavyset and require more comfort and support while you sleep, you may need to look into a different firm Leesa mattress. 


At this point, the Studio may sound like a good investment for you to make. It will improve your quality of sleep and relieve pressure, tension, and soreness. 

With that being said, you may still have some unanswered questions about the Studio by Leesa mattress. Check out some FAQs below:
