The Sapira mattress, a new product from the makers of the Leesa mattress, was launched in late 2016 and has generated buzz from its combination of steel coils and foam comfort layers.
Some of the key strengths of the Sapira mattress include:
- Hybrid construction: the Sapira mattress tries to get the best of both worlds by including steel pocketed coils along with foam layers of varying densities and styles. The goal of this approach is to get the support and bounce of an innerspring mattress with the pressure-relieving strengths of memory foam.
- Innerspring coils with in-a-box delivery: most of the direct-to-consumer mattresses that include innerspring coils are not available to be delivered to your doorstep in a box, but the Sapira can be compressed and shipped without the need for white glove delivery. For customers who do want white glove delivery, that is also available.
Potential drawbacks for the Sapira mattress include:
- Limited track record: the Sapira has not been on the market for very long, so while the Leesa Sleep company has a strong reputation, there isn’t nearly as much data from customers or trusted reviewers about the Sapira.
- Only one firmness option: for sleepers who prefer a mattress outside of the firmness range of 6-7, the Sapira is unlikely to be a good match.
- High price: compared to many of the other direct-to-consumer mattresses that have innerspring coils, the Sapira comes in at a significantly higher price point.

Sleep Trial / Refunds
The Sapira mattress comes with a 100 night sleep trial. The company requests that you try out the mattress for at least 30 nights, but you are able to return the mattress anytime during the first 100 nights for a full refund. If you decide to return the mattress, Sapira coordinates pickup at no extra charge.
Standard shipping of the Sapira mattress is free within the 50 states. The mattress usually ships within 3-5 days and is delivered by UPS within 1-5 days. With standard shipping, the mattress arrives at your doorstep, and it expands to its full size once it is removed from its packaging.
Sapira also offers white glove delivery for $99. This includes the mattress being brought to the room of your choice and installed on your bed frame.
Sapira offers haul-away of your old mattress (and up to two other pieces like a headboard or footboard) as an adjunct to the white glove delivery for an additional $50. If this option is selected, the total cost is $149.
The Sapira mattress comes with a 10-year warranty. During this time, the company will replace or repair your mattress if there are any defects in craftsmanship.

The Sapira mattress has only been on the market since October 2016, but Leesa Sleep, which makes the Sapira, has been selling mattresses online since 2014. Leesa has earned a strong reputation for its customer service and has a B+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
As customers have started to look for mattress options beyond the popular all-foam mattresses, hybrids like the Sapira have gained more and more attention for their ability to deliver a quality night’s sleep.
With its use of innerspring coils and memory foam, the Sapira is a very supportive mattress. Pocketed coils are well-known for their ability to provide consistent support and more bounce than most all-foam mattresses. The addition of the foam comfort layers adds additional responsiveness and contouring to relieve pressure points.
The Sapira mattress has not been on the market long enough to fairly judge its durability. However, based on its specifications and construction, there is good reason to believe that this mattress should hold up well. That said, only time will tell, and we’ll keep this updated as more customers share their experiences on the Sapira.
Sapira offers only one level of firmness, which falls around a 6.5-7 on the typical firmness scale. With its design, sleepers can expect it to be slightly more firm than some of the other mattresses that fall in this same medium-firm range.
Depending on your sleeping position and comfort preference, this type of construction and firmness works for most people.
However, with only one firmness option available, sleepers who want a very plush or very firm feel should probably choose a different mattress.
Because the innerspring coils provide more bounce, sleepers can expect to feel more motion transfer than they would on a traditional memory foam mattress. However, the pocketed coil design and foam comfort layers help to improve motion isolation.
Most offgassing and smell issues come from memory foam, and the Sapira has only limited amounts of memory foam. While you can expect some slight “new mattress” smell right after unboxing, most customers do not report this to be a significant or lasting issue.
With its hybrid support system, the Sapira mattress does not have the intense contouring or sink found in most mattresses that are found to sleep hot. The top foam comfort layer also has perforations that are designed to improve air flow through the mattress.
Thanks to its bounce and responsiveness, the Sapira mattress should not disrupt sexual activity for most partners.
