The Sapira is a hybrid mattress from Leesa that combines premium foams with individually wrapped springs. It is a medium to medium-firm mattress (6-8 out of 10) that is designed to provide pressure relief and support for all sleep positions.

The Sapira has a six-layer construction:

  • Cover: A soft, breathable cover that is made from recycled materials.
  • Comfort foam: A layer of perforated foam that helps to keep you cool and comfortable.
  • Memory foam: A layer of memory foam that contours to your body and relieves pressure.
  • Transition foam: A layer of foam that provides support and helps to prevent you from sinking too far into the mattress.
  • Individually wrapped springs: A layer of individually wrapped springs that provide support and reduce motion transfer.
  • Base foam: A layer of dense foam that provides durability and support.

The Sapira mattress is known for its comfortable and supportive feel, as well as its ability to keep sleepers cool. It is a good choice for sleepers of all weights and sleep positions, but it is especially well-suited for lightweight to medium-weight side and combination sleepers.

Here are some of the pros and cons of the Sapira mattress:


  • Medium to medium-firm feel that is suitable for a variety of sleep positions
  • Premium foams and individually wrapped springs provide pressure relief and support
  • Breathable cover helps to keep sleepers cool
  • 100-night sleep trial and 10-year warranty


  • Some sleepers may find the mattress to be too soft
  • The mattress is quite heavy and can be difficult to move

Overall, the Sapira mattress is a well-rounded hybrid mattress that offers a good balance of comfort, support, and cooling. It is a good choice for sleepers who are looking for a mattress that can help them to get a good night’s sleep.

The Leesa Hybrid mattress is a new foam and spring hybrid mattress from the makers of the Leesa mattress. It is a great feeling mattress where the pocket coil system gives it an extra feeling of luxury. It has the signature white striped design towards the bottom of the mattress and is a bit thicker than the Leesa.

Even the Sapira site is a sort of luxury experience. There is extensive information about the construction of the mattress and the sourcing of the material. This mattress is 100% made in the USA which means buying a Sapira directly supports the US economy.

Unboxing the Leesa Sapira Mattress

The Sapira comes in a cool black box that gives it some sophistication.

Below is a video of the mattress as I take it out of the packaging. I took it out of the box ahead of time since it is heavy and it took a little longer than a typical boxed mattress.

Construction of the Leesa Sapria Mattress

What I really like about this company is that they are transparent with not only their sourcing of material but the materials and amounts of material they use in the mattress. This gives customers the ability to make comparisons and understand how the mattress works.

When it comes to comfort, more material isn’t always better. There is a point at which more foam, springs, etc. really doesn’t add value. Sort of the princess and the pea effect. I could tell that Sapira put a lot of effort into getting a great combination of foam blends with an excellent pocket coil system to create a great mattress.

Cover: A single knitted length of fabric (made in the USA) is beautifully tailored to hug the mattress and your body.  Subtle quilting and our signature “patterns” of life stripes add to the elegance and comfort.

Performance Layer: The 1.5” top layer is a high performance 3.75 lb high-density foam. This performance layer does not retain heat, is hole punched to allow air flow cooling, and provides enough bounce for freedom of movement.

  • Density 3.75 lb
  • Indentation Force Deflection (IFD) 20 – 26

Memory Foam: A 1.5″ layer of 4lb high performance memory foam provides body contouring and pressure relief to relax your body.

  • Density 4 lb
  • Indentation Force Deflection (IFD) 9

Stabilizing Layers: A 1” top and bottom layer of 2lb high-resiliency foam envelops the pocket spring allowing for seamless transition of the performance foam and memory foam.

  • Density 2 lb
  • Indentation Force Deflection (IFD) 32 – 38

Pocket Springs: A thousand premium grade steel pocket springs provide a unique core support layer. The unique pocket spring system provides superior edge support, unparalleled body contouring and virtually zero motion transfer.

The Sapira is 100% American Made using CertiPUR-US® approved foams.

My Leesa Sapria Findings

Below is a video showing how much bounce you will get with this mattress. Since it has coils and foam it will give you bounce but not much motion transfer:


Below is a picture to give you an idea of how much this mattress sinks. Even though it has multiple layers of foam above the springs, you won’t sink much into this mattress.

I opened the cover to give you an idea of how each layer works and what you can expect in terms of feel:

My Leesa Hybrid Mattress Recommendation

The Sapira mattress would be a great choice for people that like the pressure relief that foam offers but want a bit more support and the bounce that an innerspring gives. This company has a stellar reputation for customer service and their charity work. People looking to upgrade their sleep environment with a mattress that is going to appeal to a wide variety of sleepers should seriously consider the Sapira.
