Leesa Pillow Review

Leesa is an online sleep brand that offers memory foam mattresses and pillows delivered to your door.



Sizing and Pricing

The Leesa pillow comes in two sizes:

  • Standard/Queen: $75
  • King: $95


  • Comfort:  The Leesa pillow has a soft yet supportive feel perfect for side sleepers
  • Temperature:  The foam and knit cover do hold some heat
  • Smell:   There was no noticeable smell at unboxing

After years of development and hundreds of prototypes Leesa believes they’ve designed a pillow that always feels perfect. Like the Leesa mattress, the pillow features specially formulated Avena foam which has hundreds of ventilation channels for improved airflow and support. Leesa tweaked the Avena foam formula with-head cradling comfort in mind for your best nights sleep. Plus, it is all wrapped up in the knit Leesa cover which can be removed for easy cleaning. 


The Leesa pillow features their signature Avena foam which can also be found in the top layer of the Leesa mattress. Avena foam has a feel similar to latex and is much springier than its memory foam counterpart. Hundreds of ventilation channels allow for added airflow and optimal weight distribution.

It has a soft but supportive feel and would be a good match for someone who prefers a soft pillow with low loft.

The Leesa pillow was most comfortable in the back and side sleeping position for our tester but was slightly too high for comfortable stomach sleeping. With a loft of 5″ the Leesa pillow may work well for many sleepers in back, side, or stomach sleeping positions.



The Leesa pillow is super bouncy and springs back immediately once the weight is lifted. You can see below just how bouncy the Leesa pillow is when the weight is placed. It is highly reactive and will provide contouring support in back, side, and stomach sleeping positions. 

Loft: 5″

10lb Kettlebell: 2” indentation, 4” loft

The average head weighs 10 pounds. See our 10 pound kettlebell test below.



The Leesa pillow performed averagely in our thermal hand test. Like latex, the Avena foam interior does tend to hold heat in. Plus, the knit outer cover acts as a sweater for your pillow holding in some added heat.

After the hand was removed the highest recorded pillow temperature was 88° which dropped to 77°. The Leesa pillow stayed 1° to 2° hotter than other pillows we’ve tested.

For the infrared test a hand was placed on the Leesa pillow for one minute and off for one minute.

Sped up at 3x.
