Sapira vs. Herobed

If you can’t get comfortable on a traditional innerspring mattress but also don’t like the “sinking” feeling when sleeping on a memory foam bed, a hybrid mattress may be what you need for a good night’s sleep. By combining micro coils with memory foam, hybrid mattresses offer pressure relieving comfort with enough support to keep you on top of the bed. Sapira and Herobed are two of the best hybrid mattresses on the market.

Take a look and see which mattress fits your specific sleep needs.

Sapira vs. Herobed Comparison

Both the Sapira mattress and Herobed combine the comfort benefits of memory foam with the pressure relieving support of pocketed springs. Both beds are made with CertiPUR-US certified foams but are built differently.   

Mattresses by Sapira

Sapira is made by Leesa, who started marketing their memory foam mattress in 2014 and became well known as one of the first online only mattress companies to deliver a bed in a box straight to consumers. Leesa introduced Sapira as its hybrid mattress in 2016. The mattress is divided into 5 layers of foam and steel springs.

Mattress by Herobed

Herobed was introduced to the hybrid mattress market in 2016 by two founding brothers Jeff and Mark Quinn. After years in the mattress industry, they began to research the best way to create a hybrid mattress that would provide sound sleep to everyday heroes. Through their hybrid combination of premium memory foam and over 3,000 micro coils – more than any other hybrid bed in a box mattress – Herobed grew quickly in popularity.
