I recently received a Leesa Pillow for review. The Leesa Pillow is a great choice for people who have recently purchased a Leesa mattress or are looking for a soft and supportive pillow that won’t literally let you down at night. If you are wondering if a Leesa mattress is right for you, check out my review. This pillow was specifically designed to work in conjunction with the Leesa mattress but on it’s own feels really nice and I would recommend using it with just about any memory foam mattress.
Overview of the Leesa Pillow
The Leesa Pillow has the look and feel of the Leesa mattress. By that I mean that the cover of the pillow is the same knit fabric used for the cover of the mattress and the inside of the pillow is made with Avena foam, the same foam used on the top layer of the mattress to give it the bouncy springy feeling that still provides great pressure relief and support.
Here’s a video overview of the pillow with me on the Leesa mattress.
A standard size currently retails for $75 and a king size for $95 which you can buy direct through their website. To complete your set you can even buy the Leesa blanket which also is made with the same fabric found of the cover of the mattress. It is cozy and heavy enought for comfort you but not too thick as to make you overheat. Perfect for a couch and late night Netflix binges.
The Leesa pillow comes in a box like the one below. It’s not shrink wrapped so is ready to use right out the box.
Out of the box you will find that it is wrapped in plastic to protect it from getting dirty in transit. There’s also a nice card that talks about some of the charitable work that the company has done.

My Leesa Pillow Recommendation
I would especially recommend this pillow if you are going to buy a Leesa matttress. It definitely works well with the mattress since they are made of the same materials. Having both the pillow and the mattress gives you a constent feel across your entire body.
If you are going to buy the pillow alone. I recommend it for people looking for a cool pillow that has a little bounce to it. It feels very similar to a soft latex pillow. The inside of the pillow has holes in it to allow for extra breathability.
Here’s a peek at the inside of the pillow.
As mentioned in the desription, the cover is removeable and washable. Heres a sideview of the pillow where you can see the zipper.
Below is a video that shows how responsive the pillow is. Again, this is very similar to how a latex pillow behaves. The difference is that it will contour a bit better than a latex pillow and won’t push back as much.
