CASPER MATTRESS REVIEW
We Bought & Tested Casper and Here’s What We Think
The Casper mattress is undoubtedly one of the most well-known mattress brands out there. They made online mattress shopping a lot more mainstream, thanks to their innovative marketing campaigns, and a great user experience.
Sizes and Price
The Casper mattresses are available in six sizes –Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and Cal King.
Please note that newer Casper models (The Essential and The Wave) will be a little more expensive than the original Casper mattress, due to having better construction and more materials.
Twin: The Twin mattress costs $595 Twin XL: The Twin XL mattress costs $645 Full: The Full-sized mattress costs $895 Queen: The Queen mattress costs $995 King: The King mattress costs $1,195 Cal King: The Cal King mattress costs $1,195
You can also purchase Casper in installments for as low as $56/mo.
All Casper mattresses come with a 100-Night trial, and a 10-year Warranty.
The Casper mattress is composed of 4 different layers of foams:
1) Latex Alternative Foam – The first layer is one and a half inches of latex alternative foam. This is a responsive layer that is designed to feel like latex.
2) Memory Foam – Next, you’ve got one and a half inches of memory foam for pressure relief and contouring.
3) Foam Layer – The third layer has been built in as a transition foam layer.
4) Dense Supportive Foam – The top 3 layers sit on another five inches of dense and highly supportive foam. This final base layer is created to provide a strong foundation.
The Casper layers work well together to provide comfort, pressure relief and support.
The Casper cover is made of a 100% polyester fabric. The two-tone white and grey design makes it stand out from all the other typically white mattress covers. The polyester material is soft and breathable which also helps with cooling.
Feel, Support and Firmness
After testing the Casper mattress, and actually sleeping on it, we think that its a good mattress, but not the most comfortable we tested.
When lying or moving around on a Casper, it feels like its memory foam sinks in a little too much.
Casper also feels a little more rigid and bouncy than some popular competitors such as the Puffy Mattress.
It’s also worth noting that, in our experience, Casper didn’t fare as well in the cooling department, and competing mattress brands such as Puffy and Purple provided better cooling throughout the night.
Purchase and Delivery Process
The shipping is free if you live in the continental United States.
All purchases come with a 10-year warranty and a 100-Night trial, so you can easily return the mattress in case you don’t like it.
Casper Pros & Cons
The Casper customer support team is great. You can reach them via email, live chat or by calling their customer service number.
The Final Word
After buying and testing the Casper mattress, we think that overall its a good and reasonably priced mattress.
Each Casper mattress provides great edge support and good motion isolation, so your partner won’t disturb you as they move throughout the night.
The mattress is also quite comfortable, although not as comfortable as some of the other mattresses we tested like the Puffy Mattress.
Our biggest issue with Casper, however, comes down to its cooling properties and warranty.
During our sleep tests, we felt that the mattress did not provide the coolest (no pun intended) sleeping experience out there, and the surface got a little too hot for our tastes.
We’re also not the biggest fans of Casper’s 10 year warranty.
Puffy, for example, offers a LIFETIME warranty on all their mattresses, which means that the Puffy team will help you deal with any issues you’ll ever face, not just in the first 10 years.
On top of that, Puffy is cheaper, and in our experience a more comfortable mattress, with slightly better motion isolation.
The bottom line is that while both mattresses are reasonably priced, have great customer service, etc., the Puffy mattress is, in our opinion, a more worthy investment than the Casper.
