Feel and firmness of mattress is a personal thing and varies from individual to individual. Still, various tests are performed to arrange the mattresses on the firmness scale which ranges from 1 to 10. Leesa original mattress has been scored 6.5 on the firmness scale which means that this mattress is pretty much medium firm.
While on the other hand, Amerisleep AS3 was given 7/10, a bit more than Leesa original giving it a slight edge to the firmer side of the scale. Nevertheless, both mattresses give a medium firm feel overall.
Just because Amerisleep has a high density Bio-Pur foam as its top most layer, it performs really well with motion isolation and is recommended for people who twist and turn during sleep. Leesa original also provide good motion isolation but Amerisleep AS3 does it a bit better.

Edge support is extremely important as usually mattresses, with time, tend to sink. This has changed now as Amerisleep AS3 has a bio-core support foam layer which does not sink even after decades of use. Just like its top most layer, it is partially made up of plants instead of petroleum hence making it eco-friendly as well.
On the other hand, Leesa original core support base has been designed to support your body correctly, avoiding the sinking feeling just like Amerisleep does. But some customers have reviewed that if you sit on the edge, you might feel that falling off feeling.
Pressure relief is very important after you’ve had a tiring day. A good mattress can ease your spine, shoulders and hip bones so that you can spend the next day with full energy. Leesa original has a 2” memory foam contouring layer which delivers adequate pressure relief expected from a memory foam.
While, Amerisleep AS3 has an affinity transition layer which evenly reacts to your body position and contours just like your body to give you a feel as if you are resting on a cloud.
Resilience and Bounce
Even though Amerisleep AS3 Bio-pur comfort layer provide good pressure relief and contours body, it also bounces back fast so that you don’t feel stuck inside the mattress. This is a good property of a mattress and nobody wants to feel all wrapped up by the mattress. On the other hand, Leesa original comfort layer hugs you and gives you the accurate bounce you want, surely more than Amerisleep does.
