The Leesa Hybrid mattress (formerly known as Sapira) is a blend of foam and coils intended to provide sleepers with the best of both worlds with the contouring comfort of foam and the resilient support of innersprings.
Made up of five layers, the Leesa Hybrid’s top three layers are foam, beginning with ventilated foam for airflow and temperature regulation. This is followed by memory foam for pressure relief and then unperforated foam as a transition to the innerspring layer. The innerspring layer is constructed of over 1,000 pocketed metal coils for a solid support core. The final layer is an additional layer of foam that serves as a base for the coils and helps diminish sound and motion transfer.
The Leesa Hybrid allows customers who do not want an all-foam mattress to experience Leesa’s commitment to high-quality materials, social and environmental responsibility, customer service, and convenience. Read on for our full review to see if the Leesa Hybrid is right for you.

Leesa Hybrid Mattress Sizing and Pricing
Whether you are using a foundation you already have or getting a new one, making sure you have the right size bed is an important part of the mattress buying process. A too-small mattress can make you feel constrained, and a too-large one may not work in your bedroom. Using the dimensions below, you can find the perfect fit.
|Twin||38” x 75” x 11”||75 lbs.||$1,099|
|Twin XL||38” x 80” x 11”||80 lbs.||$1,199|
|Full||53” x 75” x 11”||96 lbs.||$1,499|
|Queen||60” x 80” x 11”||115 lbs.||$1,799|

Firmness is rated on a scale of 1-10 with 1 being the least firm and 10 the most firm. The Leesa Hybrid Mattress is a 7 on this scale, which makes it Medium Firm.
Though the foam used in the Leesa Hybrid is a softer foam, the innersprings give the mattress a slightly firmer feel than other Medium Firm mattresses, so people who prefer a very plush feel may want to avoid the Leesa Hybrid.
The Leesa Hybrid ships free to all 50 states and Canada and is available online via Leesa, Amazon, West Elm, and Pottery Barn.
For those who want to shop in person, the Leesa Hybrid is sold in the Leesa brick-and-mortar stores in New York City and Virginia Beach as well as in select Macy’s, West Elm, and Pottery Barn stores across the U.S. In Canada, it can be found in select Hudson’s Bay stores.
The Leesa Hybrid mattress is made from a combination of foam and coils in five layers. The top layer is 1.5 inches of ventilated, cooling Avena foam with a density of 3 PCF (pounds per cubic foot).
The second is 1.5 inches of 4 PCF contouring memory foam. Next is 1 inch of 2 PCF core support foam that serves as a transition between the comfort foam and the innersprings.
The fourth layer is 6 inches of 14.5 gauge stainless steel pocketed coils with edge support. The final layer is a 1-inch base made from 1.8 PCF foam.
The cover is a polyester and rayon blend and all of the foams used are CertiPUR-US certified.
Like Leesa’s all-foam mattress, the Leesa Hybrid ships to you in a box after being compressed and wrapped in plastic. The mattress will arrive via UPS Ground shipping in 3-8 business days, and shipping is free to all 50 states and Canada. No assembly is required, though it may take about an hour for the mattress to expand and a few days before it firms up completely.
In-home delivery is available for a $150 fee. This includes delivery and set up of your new mattress and removal of all packaging material and your old mattress. In-home delivery can add up to 7 additional business days to the delivery window.
Leesa offers a 100-night sleep trial. The purchase price of mattresses returned during the sleep trial is fully refunded minus a $49 fee ($100 fee in Alaska and Hawaii). Note that the sleep trial is voided once the mattress leaves the country in which it was purchased, so customers should keep this in mind when selecting where to buy their mattress.
The Leesa Hybrid Mattress comes with a 10-year limited warranty that covers manufacturing and materials defects. Any shipping related to the repair or replacement of a Leesa mattress is the purchaser’s responsibility. Like the sleep trial, the warranty is voided once the mattress leaves the country in which it was purchased, so customers should keep this in mind when selecting where to buy their mattress.
Leesa Hybrid Mattress Performance
The Leesa Hybrid mattress is generally good at motion isolation thanks to its foam layers, but the innerspring layer will transfer some movement. The coils are pocketed, which helps limit this but cannot eliminate it.
Overall, with its mix of materials, the Leesa Hybrid is not as good at motion isolation as an all-foam mattress, but it is better than a standard innerspring.
The Leesa Hybrid has reinforced edges that provide excellent edge support. Leesa uses higher-density coils around the sides of the innerspring layer for their Perimeter Edge Support to help the mattress hold its shape. This makes the entire surface of the mattress usable for both sleeping and sitting without the feeling that you may roll or slip off the side.
Foam will always trap some heat, but the ventilated top layer of foam and the innerspring layer work to provide airflow to mitigate this issue.
Though the Leesa Hybrid may still retain some body heat, it is minimal enough to consider the temperature regulation of the mattress to be neutral. It will neither heat you up excessively nor cool you down.
Any mattress that has been compressed and sealed for shipping will emit some smell when it is opened, including the Leesa Hybrid. This is called off-gassing.
The length of time that it takes the smell to dissipate can vary from a few hours to a few days, but it is always temporary.
The Leesa Hybrid’s dual-nature construction shines in the area of support and most customers find the mattress to be comfortable as well as supportive.
The innerspring coils provide a solid foundation and a bouncy feel and the foam comfort layers cradle the body to relieve pressure points.
The memory and polyfoam in the Leesa Hybrid’s upper layers conform closely to the body. This contouring works to relieve pressure making you less likely to wake up with aches and pains.
The density of the foams and the innerspring layer help prevent the feeling of sinking too deeply resulting in the tight “hug” of other foams.
The density of the foams and the gauge of the coils used in the Leesa Hybrid as well as Leesa’s commitment to product quality all give this mattress a degree of durability that is on par with other hybrid mattresses. Customers can expect the Leesa Hybrid to last for at least seven years of regular use.
Unlike traditional all-foam mattresses which are not the most conducive to sexual activity, the Leesa Hybrid has bounce from the innersprings and resilient foam layers. These combined make it an excellent choice for active couples.
The Leesa Hybrid is generally quiet on account of the foam layers surrounding the pocketed coils. However, there is a possibility that the coils will begin to create some noise with use over time, which could become problematic for very light sleepers.

What Type of Sleeper is Well-Suited to a Leesa Hybrid Mattress?
Side Sleepers: On the right mattress, side sleepers can easily keep their spines in a neutral position as they are supported evenly all along the back, but the wrong mattress can put pressure on the shoulders and hips and pull the neck and spine out of alignment. For sleepers above 130 lbs., the foam in the Leesa Hybrid conforms around the potential pressure points cushioning them while the innersprings provide a firm base of support. Some sleepers under 130 lbs. may find that the foam is too dense to conform appropriately and may cause pain in the shoulders and hips rather than alleviating it.
Back Sleepers: Back sleepers are the group most likely to find the Leesa Hybrid a comfortable and supportive sleep surface regardless of their body composition. The primary requirement for back sleepers is a mattress that keeps the spine in a neutral alignment with a particular focus on the lower back. The Leesa Hybrid allows the hips to sink slightly into the cushioning foam layers which helps keep the natural curve of the spine, but the innerspring layer prevents excessive sinking and supports the entire lumbar area. The Leesa Hybrid has a firmness of Medium-Firm, which is a good starting point for back sleepers looking for a new mattress.
Stomach Sleepers: For stomach sleepers, the most important thing for a good night’s sleep is to not allow the stomach and hips to sink lower than the rest of the body. If they do, then the pressure put on the spine can cause pain and back problems. The foam used in the Leesa Hybrid is typically responsive enough to keep the spine aligned and cushion the torso. The pocketed coils provide support and also prevent excessive sinking, which can cause the spine to bend and make it harder for stomach sleepers to breathe easily. Stomach sleepers under 130 lbs. may find the Leesa Hybrid does not conform enough to properly support the back and provide a comfortable sleeping surface.
|Below Average Weight (under 130 lbs)||Average Weight (130-230 lbs)||Above Average Weight (above 230 lbs)|
|Side Sleepers||Fair||Very good||Good|
|Back Sleepers</b||Good||Very good||Good|
Customer Service: Many customers reported a positive experience with Leesa’s customer service regardless of whether or not they liked their mattresses. However, some have had complaints about the third-party delivery service.
Reputation: Focused on a direct-to-consumer approach, Leesa has grown to be one of the most well-known names in online mattress sales. In addition to quality products, they are recognized for their commitment to having a positive social impact through ethical practices, community relations and donations, and environmental responsibility.
BBB Rating: Leesa has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and was accredited in August 2019.
Years in Business: Leesa has been in business since 2014.
Physical Stores: Leesa mattresses are sold in the Leesa brick-and-mortar stores in New York City and Virginia Beach as well as in select Macy’s, West Elm, and Pottery Barn stores across the U.S. In Canada, they can be found in select Hudson’s Bay stores.

The Leesa Hybrid mattress brings the commitment to quality and customer service of Leesa to sleepers looking for an option other than their flagship all-foam bed. The hybrid construction of the mattress takes advantage of the best qualities of both foam and coils combining them into a bed with a Medium Firm feel that is a good choice for almost all sleepers. The memory and poly foam upper comfort layers cradle the body and relieve pressure and the innerspring layer of pocketed coils provides consistent support, airflow, and bounce. While there are other hybrid mattresses on the market, the Leesa Hybrid is one of the few that is shipped compressed like all-foam mattresses giving it a level of convenience not found in other options.
