1. What Kind of Mattress is the Sapira Mattress?
The Sapira is a luxurious mattress that has been designed and developed by the company Leesa using more than 30 years of industry experience and hundreds of hours of rigorous testing, prototyping, and research.
This bed in a box mattress has been manufactured with the objective of providing an extraordinary level of sleep to its customers night after night and a customer experience that is truly better than any other company.
The mattress has been constructed using the best quality foams and coil springs to offer an unmatched sleep experience at a very reasonable value.
It has been designed, keeping in mind the needs and requirements of all types of sleepers including side, back, and stomach sleepers.
The mattress provides a Universal Adaptive Feel which implies that it adapts to all body shapes and sizes and all sleeping styles.
This is greatly useful for couples as each side of the mattress can adapt according to the requirements of the sleeper.
The company presents its patent foam layer in the mattress which is known as Avena foam that acts like latex foam but is much more durable and comfortable.
The company has put in a lot of efforts in selecting the right combination of foam layers, pocket-springs, and materials to provide a long lasting comfort and support to its customers.
The mattress has been constructed using an amalgam of 4 different foam layers and over 1000 individually wrapped pocket springs that work together and provide utmost comfort, great support, good bounce, pressure relief, and a cool sleeping surface.
2. How is it Layered?
The mattress is manufactured with a combination of 4 different premium quality foam layers and over 1000 individually wrapped pocket springs that total up to form an 11 inch high mattress.
The top layer of the Sapira mattress consists of 2 inches of their patented Avena foam. This layer is an alternative to latex foam but is actually made out of polyurethane foam.
The Avena foam layer has a breathable design that helps in keeping the surface cool. It provides good bounce and responsiveness for the freedom of movement as well as provides hug and contour to the body.
This layer is much more durable than latex foam and provides a greater level of comfort. It is also designed to be fire retardant and hypoallergenic, which implies it is a good choice for people who are prone to allergies.
The second layer of the Sapira mattress is made out of 2 inches of memory foam that provides deep compression support to the body. This layer adapts according to the body size and weight, and provides great pressure relief and body contouring.
The third layer of the Sapira mattress consists of a 1 inch poly foam that acts as a transitional layer between the memory foam and the pocketed springs, and also helps in stabilizing the coils.
After the above three layers, comes the individually wrapped pocket springs. The mattress consists of about more than 1000 individually wrapped coils that are 6 inches in height and are made out of the perfect gauge wire that is of 14.5 gauge.
The coils are sandwiched between the 2 stabilizing foam layers that together provide a unique core support layer. The mattress provides the perfect fusion of pocket springs and high performance foams to give a great level of bounce and superior edge support.
The final layer of the mattress also consists of a 1 inch poly foam layer that acts as the foundational support layer for the coils and also for the other layers above.
All of these layers are wrapped in a seamlessly iconic four-stripe cover that is made out of superior quality materials and adds to the comfort of the mattress.
3. How is the Cover?
The cover of the Sapira mattress is quite classy and has been cut out from a single piece of poly-Lycra blend fabric.
The cover is designed and developed in the USA, and is beautifully tailored to hug your body.
The blend of poly-Lycra fabric makes the cover stretchy and highly durable, which implies it does not loose shape and retains back its shape after being used.
The cover is quilted and has tiny pores that make it breathable and allow continuous airflow for a cool sleeping surface.
It also features fire retardant properties as well and the mattress is fully wrapped in a fire retardant sock made up of a proprietary blend of fibers. The fibers are selected for their balance of comfort and flammability performance.
In addition to this, the cover is very soft and plush to touch, and looks quite decent, attractive, and appealing.
It is off-white in color and has a diamond shaped stitching all over it. There are 4 gray bands in one half of the mattress that represent the 4 iconic stripes of the Leesa and have different unique geometric patterns that look subtle and stylish.
Overall, the cover of the Sapira looks attractive, elegant, unique, and stylish.
4. How Firm is the Sapira Mattress?
The Sapira Mattress has been expertly engineered and designed using the latest technology to provide a mattress that can be used by almost all types of sleepers.
The mattress is presented in a medium level of firmness as this level of firmness is preferred by the majority of sleepers- about 70%.
The firmness level of the mattress is about a 6.5 on the firmness scale, 10 being the firmest. This level of firmness is preferable for all types of sleepers including side, back and stomach sleepers.
The Avena foam layer on the top provides the hug and contour enjoyed by the side sleepers, while the memory foam layer in the middle provides a balanced level of comfort and support that is preferred by the back sleepers.
The individually wrapped coil springs provide the bounce and restrict the body from sinking in or feeling stuck in the mattress. It also provides greater levels of support and keeps the body popped up which is preferred by the stomach sleepers.
Overall, the mattress provides a balanced level of comfort and support making it ideal for couples and people with different sleeping positions and postures.
5. Does it Remain Cool or Become Hot?
The Sapira Mattress has been designed using the latest technology and has distinct features that not only provide overall comfort but also a cool sleeping surface.
The patented Avena foam layer is perforated which means that it has a breathable design that provides great levels of airflow and helps in dissipating heat. This in turn ensures that the surface remains cool and comfortable.
The individually wrapped pocket springs also present a great amount of inflow and outflow of air as the layer allows free airflow due to no obstruction between the springs. This helps in dispersing heat through the sides and provides comfortable sleeping temperatures to the customer.
The cover at the top also has a breathable design that helps in keeping the surface cool by providing regular airflow.
On the Sapira Mattress, you do not have to worry about sweating or sleeping hot, as this mattress has been crafted to provide a comfortable sleeping temperature night after night.
6. Does it Smell Like Chemicals?
The cause of this smell is the instant compression and packaging done right after the mattress is constructed. The new mattress smell gets trapped in the vacuum sealed plastic and starts dissipating when it is unpacked.
However, this smell should not be a cause of concern as it will soon dissipate completely in about a couple of days once the mattress is allowed to air.
The company does not use any harmful or toxic substances in the construction process of this mattress, therefore no off gassing or dangerous smell can be felt once the mattress has been set up and allowed to air for a few days.
The company uses high quality foams in the construction of the mattress that are CertiPUR-US certified which ensures that no ozone depleters, flame retardants, lead, phthalates, mercury, formaldehyde, or any other heavy metals have been used in the construction of this mattress.
7. Will I Feel the Partner Moving?
The Sapira Mattress performs really well in the motion isolation and sinkage tests, and presents virtually zero motion transfer.
The Avena foam layer provides a good amount of hug and contour that helps in retaining and restricting motion to a particular area.
The memory foam layer provides a balanced level of support and resilience, and adapts according to the shape of the body, thereby helping in reducing motion transfer.
The individually wrapped coil springs provide a great level of bounce and support, and quickly help the top layers to gain back there shape. This in turn helps in restricting and confining motion to a particular area.
All these layers work very well together to ensure an uninterrupted and an undisturbed sleep for couples and people who have partners that toss and turn all night, or move in and out of the bed regularly.
The sinkage level of the mattress is also quite good. All the layers combine together and provide good support and bounce that restricts the body from sinking in too much and provides an ideal level of sinkage. This prevents the lighter partner from rolling toward the heavier partner.
The advanced pocket spring system has been expanded up till the edges of the mattress and therefore the mattress provides an unparalleled edge support which helps in providing a larger sleeping surface to the users.
Research and reviews have shown that the Sapira Mattress has been rated above average as compared to its competitors in this category.
8. Do I Need a Foundation or Boxspring for the Sapira Mattress?
The Leesa Mattress does not require any specific or special type of boxspring or foundation, and is compatible with almost all types of foundations.
Although the company recommends on using the Leesa foundation for the Sapira, the mattress can be placed on any firm, flat and sturdy foundation.
It is compatible with all flat beds, box springs, slatted beds and even a bunkie board on a box spring. However, you must keep in mind that the surface is flat and even, and the slats should not be more than 3 inches apart.
In case the surface is not flat or even, the mattress will not be able to provide the desired level of comfort and will restrict the performance of the mattress.
The foam layers of the Sapira are quite flexible and contour to movement quite well, and therefore the mattress is compatible with an adjustable base and performs really well on it.
The mattress can also be directly placed on the floor but it is rather recommended to place it on a foundation or a box spring for a long lasting durability and high performance.
In case you decide to place the mattress on the floor, then keep in mind that the area should not be prone to moisture as this may harm the cover and the foam layers
9. How Durable is it?
The Sapira Mattress is constructed using superior quality foam layers that have been developed using the latest technologies and are therefore expected to last for a longer period of time.
The Avena foam used in this mattress is a high quality foam which is a great development in the comfort technology and provides a balanced amount of hug and contour for a long time without loosing shape.
The transitional memory foam layer has a density of 4 pcf and has been designed to last for a long time without softening.
The 6 inch quantum core pocket coil system has also been developed from 14.5 gauge wire which ensures that the mattress will withstand heavy weights and not loose its shape or bottom out.
The mattress is completely manufactured in the US which ensures that the best quality materials and products have been used in its construction.
It is estimated that this superior quality mattress should last for about 12-14 years before it requires a replacement. The company also provides a 10 years warranty with the mattress so it should at least last for this time period.
However, the mattress can last for a longer time if it is taken proper care of and used appropriately.
10. Is it Easy to Clean and Maintain?
Cleaning and maintaining the Sapira Mattress is not a tough job at all.
The cover of the mattress does have a zipper but the company does not recommend on removing it as it cannot be washed. Washing the cover may harm the fabric and spoil the top layer.
The company suggests on using a high quality, waterproof, washable and hypoallergenic mattress protector with this mattress as this will not only protect the mattress but will also increase its life.
In case of stains, the spot cleaning method is recommended. A sponge should be dipped into a mixture of water and a mild detergent, and should be rubbed in circular motions over the stain until it comes off.
This area should be dried off completely immediately after cleaning. Make sure no harsh or harmful chemicals are used to clean the mattress.
The mattress does not have a flippable design as the comfort layers have been placed in a particular order and the coil springs are placed in the lower part of the mattress, but it can be rotated.
It is recommended to rotate the mattress from head to toe after about every 6 months. This helps in providing even wear all around the mattress.
Additionally, the mattress should be vacuumed using a hand vacuum after every 3 months to prevent any dust or dirt from settling in.
