The Sapira is available in one firmness setting, which rates around a 7 on the firmness scale. (This scales ranges from 1-10, with 1 being the least firm and 10 being the most firm.) This is considered “medium firm.” Considering its construction, consumers should expect the Sapira to be a bit more firm than most mattresses in this range on the scale. It is still a safe place for most people to start. But if you know you prefer a more plush feel, the Sapira might not be the best fit for you.
The Sapira mattress is available on the manufacturer’s website, on Amazon, and several through several other online retailers. In addition, Leesa runs two brick-and-mortar showrooms in New York City and Virginia Beach. The Sapira is also available at West Elm brick-and-mortar locations throughout the country.
The Sapira is a hybrid bed constructed in five layers. The first layer is 1-inch of 2 PCF (pounds per cubic foot) foam, designed to support the next layer, which is 6 inches of stainless steel pocketed coils. The third layer is 1 inch of 2 PCF foam, designed to buffer the coils. The next layer is 1.5 inches of 4 PCF memory foam. The final layer is 1.5 inches of perforated, cooling Aveno foam, with a density of 3.75 PCF. All Sapira’s foams are CertiPUR-US certified. The cover is a polyester blend.
The Sapira is one of the few “bed in a box” brands that delivers a mattress that includes innersprings to your doorstep. After the Sapira is manufactured, it is compressed, vacuumed-sealed, and sent to your door in a labeled box. The bed arrives in one piece with no assembly required.
Shipping is free to all 50 states. Free shipping is also available throughout Canada.
The Sapira typically arrives within six business days via UPS.
Leesa offers a white glove delivery service on Sapira mattresses. For a $99 fee, Leesa will arrange for the bed to be unboxed, brought to the room of your choice and installed on your bed frame. For an additional $50, they will also arrange for your old mattress to be removed. Along with the white glove delivery, the total for this is $149.
The Sapira comes with a 100-night sleep trial. The manufacturer does require you keep the mattress for at least 30 nights before initiating a return. If at any time between 30-100 nights you are unsatisfied with the bed, Leesa will arrange to have it removed and refund your entire purchase price. Any delivery fees are non-refundable.
There is a 10-year warranty on the Sapira mattress. During the warranty period, the manufacturer will replace or repair the bed if there are any defects in craftsmanship or materials. Any shipping costs associated with repair or replacement fall to the owner. Full warranty terms are available here.
Sapira Mattress Performance
The foam layers of the Sapira help to trap motion and keep it from traveling across the mattress. Innersprings are notorious for poor motion isolation, but customers report that the Sapira’s hybrid design does a good job at this.
The Sapira’s innerspring support core helps to reinforce the bed’s perimeter and provide solid edge support. That means little premature sinking around the edges and a solid sleeping surface across the entire bed.
Innerspring coils also aid in ventilation and airflow, helping a mattress to stay cool during sleep. The Sapira’s foam layers do still trap a minimal amount of body heat, but heat retention has not been a problem for most customers.
When a mattress is compressed and sealed, it typically produces an odor when first removed from its packaging. This is referred to as “off-gassing” and is always temporary. The Sapira will likely emit this smell, but it will dissipate within a few days.
The Sapira’s hybrid construction and quality materials result in a very supportive bed. In the Sapira, coils provide consistent support and bounce while memory foam adds pressure point relief and responsiveness. This is a combination that most customers find to be both comfortable and supportive.
The memory and poly foam comfort layers on the Sapira conform quite closely, though without the “tight hug” and deep sink of traditional foam mattresses. The Sapira conforms very well, especially compared to other hybrid mattress models.
Leesa has developed a solid reputation for product quality with its original namesake mattress. The Sapira hasn’t been on the market long enough to know exactly how well it will hold up over time. But based on Leesa’s reputation and the Sapira’s materials, we expect its durability to be on par with other comparable mattresses.
The Sapira is responsive and bouncy, thanks to its hybrid construction. It does not restrict movement or in anyway inhibit sexual activity.
How Do Customers Rate the Avocado?
What type of sleeper is well suited to a Sapira Mattress?
Whenever you’re reading a mattress review, it’s important to remember that choosing a new bed is a very personal decision. You must always account for your own preferences, sleeping position, body weight and type, and any health conditions you may have. You should also consider your own comfort and support needs. After purchasing a bed, take advantage of any sleep trial to make sure that the bed you chose is indeed the best one for you.
Keeping that in mind, consider this subjective customer feedback on the Sapira mattress:
Looking at the chart below, you see that sleepers who are below an average weight (those weighing less than 130 lbs) don’t rate the Sapira very well, regardless of their typical sleeping position. It might be that the lightest sleepers find the bed, with it’s 7 firmness rating, to be a bit too hard.
Average weight sleepers (those weighing between 130-230 lbs) give the bed much better ratings, especially side and back sleepers. Above average weight sleepers (those weighing more than 230 lbs) rated the Sapira as “good” in all positions.
|Below Average Weight (under 130 lbs)||Average Weight (130-230 lbs)||Above Average Weight (above 230 lbs)|
|Side Sleepers||Fair||Very good||Good|
|Back Sleepers||Good||Very good||Good|
