Casper believes its mattresses have a lot in common with Goldilocks’ chosen bed: They are neither too hard, nor too soft. They are “just right” for sleepers of all kinds, whether you prefer to snooze on your back, side or stomach. The company brands offer two approaches to sleep technology. The first consists only of layers of foam. So, depending on which level mattress you buy, you’ll get either three layers, four layers, or five layers of foam. The higher you go, the more you must spend.
The three-layer mattress is called the Casper Essential, while the four-layer version is the Casper Original. Jump up to the Casper Wave to get that final layer. The highly engineered foam provides different benefits. The outer layer is breathable foam, for those who insist on staying cool all night. The middle layers provide pressure relief, while the bottom layers deliver firmness for stability and support.
“Super comfy! I sleep deeper and find myself getting up less frequently every night. I’m actually having dreams again, I sleep so well! To top it off, the knot in my shoulder has all but disappeared in the month I’ve had my Casper Wave. I sleep better and feel better all the way around.” Dave S.
Both the Casper Original and Casper Wave are also available in a hybrid design. That means the layers of foam are placed carefully over fabric-wrapped coil springs. Sleep on the Hybrid, and you’re getting the best of both worlds in foam and coil technology. Casper’s Hybrid mattresses also include edge support for getting in and out of bed quickly (Though we suspect that getting out will be the opposite of easy — at least from a comfort perspective).
One important takeaway from our Casper mattress review: Box springs are not necessary. You can lay your mattress over a platform bed, a flat foundation, or an adjustable frame. Since it’s available in six sizes, we’re confident Casper has an option that will suit all sleep styles. Casper became a feel-good business success story on the strength of thousands of five-star customer reviews.
“My husband and I were experiencing a lot of back pain from our old coil mattress. We made the decision to upgrade to memory foam, and after a lot of research, we decided to try out the Casper mattress. We couldn’t be happier with our decision, and would highly recommend this mattress for side and back sleepers!” Brianna
