Capitalizing on their success over the past few years, Leesa has expanded their offering by constructing a luxury mattress named the Sapira Mattress. Unlike the original all-foam Leesa mattress, the Sapira Mattress has individually wrapped springs encased in differing levels of foam support. Right off the bat it’s clear to see a lot of time has gone into this mattress, which is designed for people who are after a little more nightly opulence. To see why this mattress is described as premium, lets break it down layer by layer.

Sapira Mattress Construction
The cover is beautifully designed with a quilted material covering the entire mattress. The fabric is in one-piece, and is therefore seamless. The material is covered in ornate patterns and the Leesa striped design. While the cover is thin, the poly-lycra blend helps wick moisture away from your body which greatly helps temperature control during the night.
Like the Leesa Mattress, the Sapira Mattress comfort layer contains 1.5 inches of Avena foam, (which is half an inch less than the Leesa). The foam is perforated with hundreds of grid-like holes which gives this top layer excellent breathability. The Avena foam responds instantly to pressure, and adds a layer of bounce to the mattress.
The recovery layer is 1.5 inches of memory foam, designed to hug your pressure points, dispersing weight and aligning to the contours of your body. The memory foam also promotes optimal spinal alignment and is very durable, meaning it’ll provide continued support for years to come.
The 1 inch stabilizing layers sit above and below the springs and are designed to facilitate a seamless transition between the differing layers. Having a stabilizing layer underneath the springs adds an extra layer of stability that will be appreciated by most.
The support layer consists of 6” individually wrapped springs, and for the most part, this is what makes the Sapira a luxury mattress. The individual springs add another layer of support to your night’s rest, supporting individual vertebrae for optimal spinal alignment. The springs also relieve further pressure, taking stress off nerve connectors in the spinal cord, which in turn helps to rest essentially every part of your body.
Sapira Mattress Comfort
The Sapira mattress offers excellent comfort. The poly-lycra cover keeps you dry and helps to eliminate clamminess, which can be a major source of discomfort. The Avena foam offers excellent breathability and there’s enough bounce on this top layer to offset any sinkage that the memory foam may contribute to. The springs are set out on a grid, which means there are large air channels where body heat can escape, keeping you comfortable through the night. The springs also do a great job of eliminating motion transfer. For those who prefer softer mattresses, please note that this mattress comes in one firmness only, and that’s a medium-firm.
Sapira Mattress Support
Because the Sapira mattress is a hybrid (foam + springs), it offers a high level of support. While the foam does a great job of relieving pressure points and molding to the contours of the body, the springs do a majority of the grunt work here. Individually wrapped, each spring is responsible for the weight that’s directly on top of it, which means that it will actively support every square inch of your body. This is particularly important for the spine, which needs to be aligned correctly for the body to function at its optimal level (without aches and pains). The springs delicately support the spinal cord and allow you to wake up feeling rested and relaxed.
We consider the firmness of the Leesa Sapira Hybrid mattress to land in this range.
- Poly-lycra quilted cover wicks away moisture, keeping you dry
- Avena foam promotes optimal airflow and gives the mattress bounce
- Transitional layers do an excellent job of making sure the foam + springs work well together
- Coils provide exceptional spinal alignment and support while increasing airflow through the mattress
- Excellent social initiatives
- Only one firmness option (medium-firm)
- Comfort and recovery layers are a half inch thinner than the Leesa mattress
- Their reviews don’t seem to be hosted by an authentic 3rd party review agency
The Sapira Mattress is unashamedly at the top end of the online market, with a Queen costing $1,595. While this may sound expensive, make sure you compare features correctly when looking at mattresses. Compared to other hybrid mattresses on the market, the Sapira is competitively priced. Sapira estimates delivery within 2-8 business days and white glove delivery (which includes mattress set up) is available in select markets.
The Sapira mattress is billed as a luxury mattress and it does well to live up to the hype they’ve created. The mattress offers excellent comfort properties such as dryness and airflow, however it’s the level of support that really stands out. The individually wrapped springs make a big difference here. Each spring provides individual support, which is essential for correct spinal alignment and a well-rested sleep. If you’re in the market for a mattress that offers high levels of support and superior breathability, talking a look at the Sapira mattress sales page with a $150 discount would be a good start.
