Leesa Hybrid (Sapira) Mattress Review: The Best of Both Worlds

Sapira Mattress Review - front view with model

The Leesa Hybrid Mattress provides a luxurious innerspring-like sleeping experience for a budget price.

By integrating the best foam layers and pocketed coil springs, Leesa has produced a mattress that provides exceptional support, a great bouncy feel, minimal motion issues and a cool and dry night’s sleep.

All of this comes at a higher price than its sister mattress, the original Leesa foam bed, but it’s still far less than what you will pay in a store for the same level of quality.

In this deep dive review, you will learn if the Leesa Hybrid mattress is as good as some claim, whether it suits your needs and how it compares with other leading mattresses sold online.

So let’s get to it!

Purple Mattress Review: In A Class Of Its Own

Purple Mattress - uncovered in modern bedroom

All of the mattresses we’ve reviewed so far have been one of three types: memory foam, latex foam or innerspring.

Until now.

The Purple Mattress is as different as they come – from how the company funds their growth, to their funky self-deprecating marketing, to the truly unique materials in their products.

Most importantly, the sleeping experience of this mattress is excellent and very different.  In a positive way.

I have to say, Eric and I love our Purple mattress. This is one of the best-sleeping and coolest mattresses we’ve ever owned.

So let’s dive in and find out why everyone is talking so much about the Purple Mattress… what, specifically, makes it so much better?

Casper Original Mattress Review: Updated for 2019

casper mattress review - with bedding in apartment

Casper’s Original mattress is as good as most premium store-bought foam mattresses, but costs far less.

The Casper mattress excels at comfort, support and temperature control and will satisfy the vast majority of people. And everyone who buys one will save hundreds vs. a comparable quality mattress bought from a store.

It performs slightly lower in some areas that may matter to you, however, including motion transfer and edge support.

Casper attracted a lot of attention and sales a few years years ago when they entered the ancient mattress market with an aggressively low priced, really simple product sold direct to the consumer with a no-risk pitch.

Sales took off.

We bit, too. Casper was the first online mattress my husband and I bought, back when they were the only pure online manufacturer we knew.

Times have changed since then, of course. And so has Casper’s original product.

So how does Casper’s Original “best-fit” mattress compare today against newer competitors like Leesa, Tuft and Needle and Loom and Leaf?

ChiliPad Cube Mattress Cooling Pad Review

ChiliPad Cube Mattress

If you get hot at night, you can understand that a mattress with simple cooling technology is not sufficient to get rid of the heat. This is true with foam mattresses. Things like aerated foam and cooling gels do not help when the bed gets toasty. To sleep sweat-free and comfortably, you need to invest … Read more…

All-New Purple 2 vs Purple 3 vs Purple 4 Mattress Review

Purple Mattress - uncovered in modern bedroom

The original Purple mattress remains very different from all the other mattresses we’ve tried.

Instead of using foam to provide contouring and support, Purple uses what they call their Smart Comfort Grid. This is an elastic polymer grid used in the top layer of all Purple mattresses.

Purple 2-3-4 Mattress Review

The cells in the Smart Comfort Grid matrix grid individually collapse or stay upright depending on the amount of vertical force placed on them. This firm-yet-flexible feature helps Purple adapts itself to every person like no other mattress can.

Other than that, however, the rest of the original Purple mattress was quite ordinary.  Mostly just poly foam.  And it only came in one firmness.

Purple’s new Purple 2, Purple 3 and Purple 4 mattresses, however, are thicker and more supportive hybrid mattresses that come in 3 comfort levels:

  • Purple 2: a firm mattress with a 2-inch comfort grid
  • Purple 3: a medium-firm mattress with a 3-inch comfort grid and
  • Purple 4: a soft mattress with a 4-inch grid.

All of Purple’s new mattresses also use a base layer of pocketed coils to increase longevity, add a little bounce and increase support.

So… how does Purple’s newest mattress compare with the Purple original and with other popular hybrids selling today including Sapira, Nest and Avocado Green?

Keep reading for my in-depth review and comparison of the Purple 2, Purple 3 and Purple 4 mattresses, below.  We’ll cover their differences in detail so you can decide which one is best for you.

Leesa Mattress Review: The Best All-Purpose Foam Mattress Yet?

Leesa mattress review - young woman on bed

Leesa has upped the game in the one-size-fits-all budget foam mattress category. 

The Leesa mattress provides a level of comfort I’ve never seen before in a one-size-fits-all mattress.

In my opinion, it’s equal to mattresses that cost as much as 3 times more… including some of the latest offerings from Tempurpedic, Optimum, iComfort and Comforpedic.

Leesa is built with premium materials, features three layers of high quality foam and is made with pride in the USA.

Like its #1 competitor, Casper, Leesa customers enjoy free shipping, a 100 night free trial and easy returns. But Leesa costs $100 less.

So how well does Leesa compare with other one-size-fits-all beds in a box like Casper, Tuft and Needle, Ghostbed and Bear?

Helix NightFall for Plus Sized Sleepers: Our In-Depth Review

Helix Nightfall

The Helix Nightfall mattress is one of 9 mattresses that Helix sells. But only the Nightfall is made specifically for taller and heavier sleepers.

Helix describes the Nightfall as,

“a Taller 12 inch mattress with an extra layer and higher density materials to provide the right comfort, support, and durability.

The only other online mattress I’ve reviewed that is designed specifically and exclusively for plus-sized individuals and couples is the Big Fig. I briefly cover the differences between these two mattresses at the end of this review.
