Review of the Sapira Mattress by Leesa Sleep

Collaborative post

The quality of our sleep has a a huge impact on our lives and mine has most definitely improved since I was first introduced to the Leesa mattress over three years ago.  I am very fortunate to have a very good collaborative relationship with the company and was delighted when they recently asked me to review their new innovative pocket sprung mattress, The Sapira.

Leesa advise on their website that the Sapira combines what is believed to be the most advanced pocket sprung system in production.  The innovative spring system extends right to the edge of the mattress, allowing support right to the very edges.

The result is astonishingly good – the Sapira mattress gently holds you as you sleep, cushioning your body and reacting to your movements throughout the night. This provides unparalleled comfort and support, with virtually zero motion transfer from your partner.


I have to say I was already more than happy with our current leesa mattress, it really was the best mattress I had every owned  (you can read my three year update on the original mattress HERE ).  But I was really curious to see what the new Sapira Sprung mattress would be like.  It arrived in a box!  How is that even possible with a sprung mattress!  The King size is a lot heavier than the classic king Leesa mattress, so if you do buy one, you will need either a very strong man (cue hubby) or two people to take it to the bedroom.

The next surprise was the unboxing.  The mattress is rolled just like the Leesa, luckily I had the video to hand, the popping sound as it unrolls and expands is genius!  (apologies for the sound of hubby cutting the plastic at the end, after all these years, he still hasn’t mastered the art of realising when I am trying to get the shot for my blog!)  I’m not the greatest with phone technology and still haven’t worked out how to get a decent film, but I just had to show you what it looked and sounded like as it expanded.


The Sapira is made up of three layers:

The comfort layer

A 4cm layer of breathable comfort foam allows airflow for a cooler night’s sleep, and enough bounce for freedom of movement.

The Recover Layer

A 4cm layer of memory foam delivers the body contouring and pressure relief you’ve come to expect from memory foam.

The Support Layers

15cm individually wrapped premium pocket springs are nestled between two 2.5cm stabilising foam layers, to provide an exceptional and unique core support layer.

It has a stretchy polyester/lycra blend cover which is tight enough not to move around as you do and also helps keep you cool.

If you have read my blog posts about our classic Leesa mattress, you will know that I adore the body contouring aspect of the mattress.  So I was very keen to see how the Sapira would compare.  When fully expanded its around    24cm deep.  When you sit on the edge of the bed, the mattress still feels soft but you can also feel that it is a quality,  sprung mattress.  I would compare the feeling to a luxury hotel type mattress, you know that feeling when you arrive at a hotel and throw yourself onto the huge, perfect bed! Yep, THAT!

Laying down on the Sapira you immediately feel its support and comfort.  More importantly if you share a bed with someone much heavier than yourself, (sorry love) when my husband laid down beside me I didn’t move.  He is a big chap and in the pre Lessa days when we got into bed I would always feel any  movement he made, often sliding towards him as his he turned or moved in bed.

We have had the new Sapira mattress for around a month now, it is every bit as wonderful as I had hoped.  No sore hips or aching joints in the morning.  Both my husband and I agree it helps us wake up refreshed and ready for the day ahead.   We can both turn over as much as we like during the night without disturbing each other and even moving to the edge of the bed as I often do (I like to stick my feet out of the covers) Its still the same level of comfort.


I appreciate I am very fortunate to collaborate with Leesa on these mattresses and that they are classed as a luxury brand, but I think we do underestimate the value of the amount of time we actually spend in bed each day.  If you are considering buying one, you can have it for 100 days on a free return policy.  Leesa will arrange collection if you are not totally satisfied.  They have a wonderful ethical policy, donating one mattress to a good cause for every ten they sell.  I worked with them last year on a charitable donation that you can read about HERE

    A mattress might be considered ‘luxury’ but as you say, its crucial to have a good one to ensure your health and wellbeing – well worth the investment in a good one I think!

    A pocket sprung Leesa?!?! Oh my, I bet it’s amazing. We switched to memory foam a few years back but I wondering if it’s time to try pocket sprung again. I’ve read that they’re actually better for you.

I'd love your comment
