Our friend (and beloved Cup of Jo photographer) Nicki Sebastian was way overdue for a new mattress. “Our old one was from my husband Roni’s single days,” she laughs. “It was absurd.” The couple needed something more supportive and comfortable for themselves — and their two little girls, who often piled in. So, we were happy to introduce Nicki to Leesa, whose mattresses we’ve used and loved for years…
Nicki lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their daughters Cami, age six, and Cece, almost two. “Our house is tiny. It’s 750 square feet on a good day,” Nicki explains. “So, we do everything in our bed. I work there, we watch movies, and in the mornings, the girls come running in first thing and hop in. It’s our reset place. The bed can fit all of us, so it’s the default location.”
Leesa mattresses are made with three distinct foam layers, to keep you cool and comfortable. “Admittedly, Roni and I are not the best co-sleepers,” Nicki laughs. “We used to feel each other’s movements all night long. Every time Roni moved, I would wake up and think it was the beginning of an earthquake.” But the Leesa mattress has changed all that. “Now, we both sleep soundly. The foam absorbs all the other person’s movements. It’s like those old tests where someone jumps up and down with a glass of wine on the bed. It’s amazing.”
The middle layer, made with comfy memory foam, supports your body. “I love how it satisfies all sleeping positions,” says Nicki. “It works for belly sleeping, side sleeping, back sleeping…”
Meanwhile, the uppermost layer, with perforated foam, helps keep you cool. Says Nicki, “This mattress brings the cool factor in every sense of the word. The look and feel is awesome, and the temperature is great. Our home doesn’t have air conditioning, so I can’t wait until the summer when this mattress will really pay off!”
Leesa’s hybrid pillows are truly game-changing. “The pillows stay cool to the touch even after a full night’s sleep,” Nicki says. “It’s wild. I’m a constant pillow flipper, and I haven’t needed to flip my pillow with this, which is a game changer.” (Joanna even gave these pillows as Christmas gifts to her mom and sister.)
“Sleep is so valuable,” says Nicki. “If there’s anything you can do to upgrade the quality of sleep, it’s worth it. This mattress has completely changed our lives.”
