Leesa Sapira Review: Shipping, Returns, etc.

Like the rest of the bed in a box industry, you get completely free shipping on the Sapira mattress and the Leesa mattress. Your new mattress will show up in a box that’s about four feet tall. It’s actually pretty amazing that inside that box is a full size, real life mattress. They can even fit a king size bed in that box. Here’s a look at the unboxing process.

Unboxing and setting up the Sapira mattress

Once you’ve removed all of the packaging and setup your brand new mattress, you have 100 nights to sleep on it, risk free. Leesa, like Casper, GhostBed, and others, are aggressively trying to get consumers to test out their beds and are willing to put up with returns if it means that more people will give their bed a shot. And it must be working for them, otherwise these companies wouldn’t offer the trial periods.

Inside the trial period, if you decide that the Sapira mattress is not for you, call Leesa up and request a refund. As long as you haven’t exceeded 100 nights with the Sapira mattress, you can get 100% of your money back if you decide that you don’t want the bed anymore. Pretty sweet.

If you do end up keeping Sapira, which, let’s be honest, you probably will, it comes with a 10-year warranty.

Sapira Mattress Price & Coupon Code

Given that Sapira is Leesa’s premium mattress, it’s slightly more expensive. It’s not egregious, but it’s not cheap, nor should it be—this is a very nice mattress. Here’s a pricing breakdown.

SizePrice (MSRP)
Twin XL$1,095
King / Cal King$1,795

As for coupons, Leesa often runs specials on their mattresses. They follow the normal retail cycle though, and typically offer their steepest discounts during major holidays such as Black Friday and 4th of July. You can check Leesa.com to see what promotions they’re running right now. We should also have an evergreen coupon on this page for you.

What is the Sapira Mattress Made Of?

Sapira has a five layer construction that starts with a 1” layer of support foam that serves as the foundation for the mattress. On top of that is a layer of 6” pocketed coils. These make the bed more durable, supportive, and responsive. And since the coils are individually encased, they act somewhat independent of each other, proving more localized support and motion isolation (which we discuss more later.

Construction breakdown of the Sapira mattress

On top of the coils is another layer of support foam, which acts as a transition between the softer top layers and the firmer coils. On top of that is 1.5” of memory foam for pressure relief. And the top layer is 1.5” of aerated Avena foam, which is a softer, more neutral foam.

A closer look inside the Sapira mattress

All together, the Sapira mattress is 11” thick and weighs 115 lb for a queen size. Unfortunately, it does not have handles, so moving Sapira from house to house isn’t a fun experience, but then again, is moving ever fun?

Cover & Cleaning

Sapira has a soft, stitched cover that’s made of a polyester and rayon blend. It’s actually really nice and is one of the better covers that we’ve seen, at least on the mattresses that we’ve reviewed.

While the cover on the Sapira mattress is removable, you should not do so. If you need to clean it, you should spot clean with a rag, mild detergent, and warm water. The cover is not machine washable.

That’s a good looking mattress

If you’re particularly concerned with keeping the mattress clean you might want to look into a mattress protector. They are plenty of mattress protectors available at Amazon and other stores. Just keep in mind that adding a mattress protector can (and often does) alter the way the bed feels.

Feel, Firmness & Responsiveness

As for how the Sapira mattress feels, well, it uses softer foams, but it’s a slightly firmer bed, if that makes sense. The top two layers (Avena and memory foam) are soft to the touch and provide a really comfortable sleeping surface, while the coils provide tremendous bi-directional support.

The best way that we can describe the feel is a softer foam mattress with plenty of bounce. It is about a medium-firm on the soft-to-firm scale. We should point out though, that softness/firmness is subjective. The heavier you are, the softer a mattress will appear to you. The opposite is true of more petite individuals.

Given that the mattress has several layers of poly foam, alongside pocketed coils, it is quick to respond to pressure. This makes it easier to switch positions at night and means that Sapira has zero of that stuck-in-the-mud feeling that so many people loath.

Sapira bounces right back

As you can see, the bed is great in terms of responsiveness. And this is despite the fact that it actually has a 1.5” layer of memory foam.

Is Leesa Sapira Suitable for Back and Stomach Sleepers?

Yes. In fact, we think Sapira is ideally suited for back and stomach sleepers. As mentioned above, it’s a medium-firm mattress and provides plenty of support.

Sapira is great mattress for back and stomach sleepers

Generally, back and stomach sleepers prefer (and require) a firm mattress. This is to ensure that their hips don’t sag down too much and put excess pressure on their low back. Sapira does a wonderful job of providing the support and firmness necessary for back and stomach sleepers.

How About Side Sleepers?

Not really. Sapira would not be on our short list of the best mattresses for side sleepers. While the foams are softer, the overall feel is simply too firm for strict side sleepers.

And Combination Sleepers?

We actually think Sapira will be just fine for combination sleepers, that is, as long as 90% of your night isn’t spent sleeping on your side. If you occasionally roll to your side, you should be just fine. Also, given how responsive this mattress is, switching positions takes next to no effort (i.e. it’s ideal for combo sleepers).

Can the Sapira Mattress Handle Heavier People?

There is no black and white answer here. We are all different and there is no single best mattress for everyone. Having said that, generally heavier individuals need more supportive mattresses, which tend to be spring/hybrid mattresses.

Given that Sapira is firmer and has coils, we actually think it will be a pretty good mattress for heavier folks (around 250 lb). Certainly, if you compare Sapira to foam mattresses such as Zinus, Tuft & Needle, or Lucid, it will be far more ideal for heavier folks, especially over the long run.

Temperature Regulation

There are a number of factors that affect how hot or cold a bed sleeps at night, including room temperature, material makeup of the bed, and firmness level. Because Sapira is firmer, you end up sleeping more on top of the bed versus in the bed. This actually helps you to sleep cooler because you’re not sinking into the mattress as much and therefore less of the material is touching your body.

As for the construction of the bed, it uses coils, which tend to be great for circulating airflow, and aerated foam on top that’s designed to help with airflow as well. Considering all of this, Sapira sleeps more neutral. It’s not actively cooling you down, but it also does not heat up excessively.

Two Factors That Are Important For Couples

Finding the right mattress for one person is tough, but finding a bed that pleases two people is a whole other beast. Beyond firmness, feel, support, and material preferences, couples also need to be mindful of two other important factors: motion transfer and edges support.

Motion transfer refers to how efficient a bed is at deadening movement. It is mostly important when one couple is active in their sleep or habitually gets up in the middle of the night to use the restroom or sneak cookies. You do not want this excess movement waking you up and therefore you should look for a bed that’s better at isolation motion.

sapira mattress review motion isolation
Good, not great at isolating motion

Generally, beds made entirely of foam are the best at isolation motion. However, mattress with pocketed coils aren’t bad either. Because the coils are separate from one another, the pressure on one doesn’t necessarily impact the others. This is the case with Sapira. It’s fairly good at isolating motion, but it’s not the absolute best bed for light sleepers. Still, it’s much better than your traditional innerspring mattress.

Edge support is primarily important for couples that share a smaller size mattress such as a full or queen (i.e. tight quarters). In this scenario you need to be able to use the entire surface of the bed, including the edges.

A mattress with poor edge support will compress excessively along the edges and give a roll-off sensation that can be a bit unnerving. You see this more commonly with all-foam beds, but some coil mattresses have pretty bad edge support as well.

Sapira has darn good edge support

Lucky for you, Sapira has really great edge support. In fact, this is one of the best things about this mattress—it holds its shape along the perimeter nicely. We would consider Sapira a great mattress for individuals sleeping in a smaller room, apartment, or studio where a king size bed just won’t fit.

Leesa Sapira Mattress Review: Verdict

This is a well-made, comfortable, and supportive mattress. If that sounds like what you’re looking for, well then, Sapira could be the right bed for you. If you like coils, you favor sleeping on your stomach or back, and you like the idea of a soft foam feel, Sapira is that bed. If, however, you sleep exclusively on your side and want a true memory foam feel, that is not Sapira—check out our list of the best memory foam mattresses. The bottom line is that Sapira isn’t cheap, but it is a good mattress and there is a large subset of people that will really like this mattress.
