Same as Leesa and Tuft & Needle, Casper is another online mattress company, who began his business in 2014, these three companies are very similar for all of them start their business online, sell mattress at a very attractive price, all of them only provide one model with the same firmness.
Recently Casper set up 2 new showrooms, one in New York City and the other in West Hollywood. You can drive there and have a try if interested. But in my opinion even if you tried dozens of mattress in showrooms, it only gave you limited help of make decision. Every mattress has its advantage and disadvantage.
It’s very important to lay on mattress with different positions. Your back, your stomach and your side. And only lay there for enough time, you can have more accurate feelings on firmness, support, contouring. Some memory form mattress feels great firstly, but you’ll feel a little heat and too much sinkage. So the best way is trying at home, for enough time, and your body will tell you if this is the correct mattress.

Structure of Casper Mattress
The Casper mattress hybridizes three layers of foam. The bottom: 6.5 inches of 1.8 pcf poly foam; The middle: 1.5 inches of 4.0 pcf memory foam; The top: 1.5 inches of 3.3 pcf synthetic dunlop latex foam.
Memory foam layer will bring you great support and contouring, but too much memory foam will also bring you heat and sinking, so the put latex foam on top, to provide good support and make sure cool and breathable.
Additionally, there are two cover layers between you and the mattress latex layer: the cover and a fire-protection sock‚ which prevent you from coming in contact with the latex. This design make sure you don’t contact with the latex form directly, so you shouldn’t have any irritation when laying on Casper mattress, even if you’re allergic to latex.
The support foam is 6.5 inch, which props up your body so you don’t sink into the bed completely. Over all, the structure if Casper mattress is very simple, and this is one of the design ideas of Casper mattress.
What’s the difference between old version and new version ?
- Open latex foam layer has been upgrade from 1.5 inches into 2 inches.
- Support foam was split into 2 layers, the adaptive transition foam layer make sure the comfort layer and the base layer worked together more effective and provide you better sleeping experience.

How Does Casper Mattress Feel?
Almost every customer will ask, how does it feel? Firm or soft? Friendly on back sleeping and side sleeping? Firmness is a very personal concept, and everyone has his own sleeping position. But from Casper official, the Casper mattress is designed to meet the Goldilocks standard of “just right”. That means it’s not too firm or too hard.
Personally, would rate the Casper at a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale. 10 is the hardest.
- Casper mattress performed very good in our tests of back and stomach support.
- This mattress did very good in our durability tests, showing only minor changes in performance.
- The mattress’s surface was excellent at conforming to various shapes, maximizing contact with the sleeper, and it proved to be very stable, limiting the amount of vibration transmitted.
- It transmitted little vibration from one side of the bed to the other, and changing positions was fairly easy.
- Overall, Casper mattress works amazing for back sleepers and front(stomach) sleepers, but some side sleepers may feel a little firm, especially the one who is thinner and lighter. But this differently from person, you’d better have a try buy your self and share with us the real experience. Casper provide a 100 night trial, so it’s risk from decision.
Casper vs Ghostbed vs Helix
Caper has a longer history, there are dozens of mattress companies sell their product online. They don’t have retail store. Compared with these young companies , Caper and Leesa mattress has more experience and reputation in this industry, recently they’ve already opened showroom in New York City , Los Angeles.
Casper is a hybrid mattress, with latex worked as the top layer to provide bounce back, compared to other memory foam mattresses, Casper is more friendly for sex. Especially their new version mattress, increase the thickness of the latex layer. Another very good mattress which almost has the same structure as Casper is Ghostbed mattress.
Compared with memory foam, latex is more cool, if you love the feeling of being wrapped, memory foam is a better choice, while if you hate hot sleeping, latex mattress is a better choice.
Helix is another hybrid mattress with latex as top layer, but different from Casper an Ghostbed, the second layer of Helix is not memory foam but pocketed coil, and it’s the biggest difference, the biggest advantage of Helix mattress is its firmness can be customized, you need to answer several questions before buying so their system can judge what you need and provide you best service.
So, for me. If you have a limited budget, I would choose Ghostbed. It’s more cheaper than Casper and has similar structure and overall feelings, both Casper and Ghostbed have a medium feelings when laying on.
If you don’t want to customize your mattress based on behaviors like weight, height, then Helix is a better choice for you. As I know, helix is the only mattress manufacture who can provide this kind of service at this price level.
Else choose Casper, this is a safe choice, and Casper is a more famous brand has been in this industry for many years. Especially new Casper, who has 4 layers and increase latex layer into 2″, this would make Casper more competitive. Don’t forget to use below coupon to save extra $50 when check out.

Do I Need A Box-spring or Platform on Casper Mattress
We’ve tested the Casper mattress on the floor, a slatted bed frame, and a box spring. It is designed to work on any firm, flat surface. As a general rule of thumb, the more surface area the better.
If you choose to use a slatted bed frame, please ensure the slats are unyielding and no greater than 3” apart. If you’re using an older box spring with minimal support slats, you will need to use a bunkie board or a piece of plywood.back to menu ↑
