Casper has been making waves in the mattress industry for the past few years. They claim to offer the perfect mattress for everyone after doing rigorous consumer tests on their prototypes. But what do other people say?
Casper mattresses are made of a blend of foams that are CertiPUR-US certified, meaning that they won't off-gas nasty toxins. Here is what is under the covers:
Layer 1: The woven cover's top is an extremely thin layer of polyester. The side panels and the bottom have additional materials as well: rayon, polypropolene, and aramid (similar to nylon). Because of the thinness of the cover, it is similar to sleeping directly on foam.
Layer 2: 1.5'' open cell layer, which is made of Dunlop latex foam. The aerated surface provides a bit of cooling, airflow and bounce from the latex.
Layer 3: 1.5'' of memory foam provides pressure point alleviation.
Layer 4: 1.5'' of polyurethane foam. It is a transitional foam that provides support, and slightly softer firmness than the base foam.
Layer 5: 5'' of base support foam gives the mattress a solid foundation.
Most agree that this mattress provides a nice element of comfort to most sleepers, aligning the spine. Some heavier sleepers and side sleepers report discomfort from sinkage and there are reports that if you are over 250lbs, this mattress may not be best.
Casper's mattress offers one firmness option and is medium firm.
Based on the firmness rating of this mattress, it should relieve back pain symptoms for many with the exception of some heavier folks and side sleepers.
Casper provides a good level of cooling. However, if you are a very warm sleeper, you may experience heat retention.
If you are looking for a medium firm mattress, are not heavy, and are a back / stomach sleeper, this is a great option.
So far so good!View More Reviews
Horrible mattress, great marketing. My back hurt for the entire three weeks we had it, I contacted casper and they told me to give it two to three months before it would feel comfortable! Whatever you do DO NOT BUY THROUGH AMAZON. Casper will not honor trial period or warranty if you purchase through amazon. And shipping back is a NIGHTMARE, it took two large guys and my wife to get it back in a box that ups will accept. When I contacted casper
no more lower back issues!
Bad smell and very extra firm. Would not recommend purchasing thru amazon if unsure if it will work for you.
Been great so far!
This was a carefully chosen purchase, and we have not regretted it at all. It's perfect for both of us.
Never slept better. I was always sore after sleeping on my previous mattress and the Casper made it all better.
Have had this mattress for four months now and we love it.
Very comfortable. No more sore back in the morning.
Oh my god the most comfortable bed I have ever had. Seriously, this bed is no joke! I am absolutely satisfied!!!
I have only had this mattress for a week but I must say, wow. It is SO comfortable. I sleep on it by myself so I can't speak how it is with two but I can say it is absolutely the best matress I've slept on. It was super easy to take out of the package and unravel. Every morning I struggle to get out of it because it's so nice.
By far the most comfortable mattress I've ever had!
Have had it for 45 days and love it. Not hot at all
You will not regret buying this mattress
This was an amazing buy. We have both a temperpedic and a sleep number. We bought this for our son and now are so jealous. We like it better than any of the others.
guest bed mattress, guests love it
It's smaller than my previous queen size mattress so the box I have is bigger but other than that it's the most comfortable mattress I've ever had 😍👌🏼
This is absolutely hands down the best mattress I have ever slept on1 I rate the whole experience 10 star because of the ease in which it is delivered and handled by me alone. I am in heaven while sleeping on this bed and tell everyone I meet about its perfection!
Simply the best. Don't bother looking at any other foam mattress. The cheaper Chinese ones don't even compare, and it beats out everything in price above it as well.
Takes getting used to when coming from a traditional mattress. You don't sink in as much.
THE BEST. And really fun to open!
I have never gotten such a deep sleep until it bought this. It is crazy. Get it.
I have had this mattress for 2 months. It is much different than my spring mattress and very comfortable
It is a well made product for very little cost.
We're very happy with it. Very comfortable.
Very comfortable. Well made. Would recommend
The sweet spot. Firm but still supportive. Will let you know how it holds up. You can use this referral to save 50 clams if you decide to get one too!
Few Months later the bed holds fine. No signs of dips or soft spots. Definitely get a spill cover.

It is wonderful, 1 little glitch in hanging it, user error...
This is the first review I've ever written on Amazon.
I'm the type of a person who rarely get mad... always try to look at the brighter side of life.
If I get a broken item, I simply return it. if my order gets delayed, I would first wait then email the seller. I don't complain. S*** happens.
But this. This is unacceptable.
I just moved into my new apartment, assembled all the furnitutures with my wife and saved my our last fun for the infamouse Casper bed.
As we are unboxing and unwrapping, my wife pointed out that the bed seems too small.
We found out what we got was a queen size bed instead of a king.
Is this some kind of a joke? Not only I paid way more for the wrong size bed, I don't even know how I am supposed to ship this back for a return.
THE WORST. How hard is it to check the right size and ship it right???????
I feel very heavy hearted writing this review. I wanted to love this mattress; I am definitely the target market for the elegant design and excellent customer service of Casper. I ended up purchasing via Amazon Prime since Casper was out of stock. This gave me only 30 days to try the mattress. I am 5'8" and 123 lbs. The Casper site says this mattress is good for two adults each up to 250 lbs. I really feel like BMI is the most important indicator, and I definitely fell below the undefined minimum. I have been sleeping on foam mattresses for 10+ yrs. My first out of college was the Sultan Tuvebo from Ikea; it served me well (probably not environmentally friendly but was certainly a cheap comfy option). Since I did not purchase through Casper, I was not eligible to receive the extra latex layer they had been offering as a pilot program. There is no way to buy this extra layer from them or receive it from Amazon, and Casper did not think it would help given how hard the bed was for me personally. Amazon customer service handled the return well once I got the U.S. on the phone as this was way too complicated for the foreign offices. Once I unzipped the mattress, I was also thoroughly disappointed with the quality of the base layer foam; it fell apart in my nails. For those who like American made foam mattresses at a reasonable price, I would recommend Select Foam. They also offer 90 day trial and will give you a recommendation based on BMI. If you happen to live in Miami, they have a store front on Calle Ocho called Brickell Mattress. I'm sorry I strayed from them; my neck paid the price.
This is now my second Casper mattress I purchased.
If you'd like $50 OFF (disclaimer I also get $50 off up to 5 times) leave your email in the comments and I'll send you a link.
The mattress IS definitely different. I've had a serta icomfort (DONT buy!), pillow tops, spring mattresses, and costco version memory foam. Casper's mattress is firmer, and I was stiff the first couple nights sleeping on it but got used to it after a week. I sleep on my back so I can't sleep for side sleepers, but the mattress gives me the perfect level of support. I did request the memory foam topper at the end of my first month because I wanted a tad more cushion but could have been fine without it. My first casper i bought 4 months ago, and still like it a lot. This next one is replacing a terrible icomfort in our guest room. If my caspers are still great in a couple years I will be shocked and thrilled, I just don't expect longevity out of anything anymore. crossing my fingers!! definitely good enough to buy a second at this price point.
***update: it's 6 months and I still love the mattress (WITH the topper). Thinking about buying a pillow.
So far, so great! I was a bit apprehensive prior to this purchase. I am not really fond of pushy advertising (there are subway adds for these mattresses everywhere), and I have never purchased a foam mattress. This mattress was worth every penny. I have always spent small fortunes on mattresses, and was happy to pay less. Really comfy, no shifting for the other person in bed, and a great price. It would have made for a very comical Youtube video, but I managed to unload and place it onto my frame, the Zinus 14 inch SmartBase Mattress Foundation, by myself. It's pretty darn heavy, and instructs team lifting which I would whole heartedly support.
I did some research and asked a number of friends which foam mattresses they recommend. The Casper and Tuft and Needle both got consistently good reviews. The Needle was a bit to firm for some. Both have 100 day money back guarantees, so I really couldn't go wrong. I am very happy with this purchase.
Even if you are a "verified" purchaser does that guarantee you're not being recompensed for your review? This is the most miserable thing I have ever slept on. It is hard as a rock. Just a big chunk of foam with zero comfort. We are four days in and have added our foam topper from our old bed just to make it somewhat tolerable. I just don't understand how people can think this is comfortable unless they're used to sleeping on park benches. I know everyone has different likes, but I find it hard to believe the authenticity of these reviews.
We finally decided to go RV'ing full time. The mattress in our RV was decent, but after laying on the old one for about 20 minutes, it felt like I was laying on the floor. After plenty of research, we came across the Casper mattress. I was a bit skeptical not knowing how the mattress felt and how long it would last, but so far so good! We have been sleeping on this mattress for 3 weeks now and cannot complain, the comfort level is great and getting this mattress in the RV was a breeze. I would highly recommend it!
I'm a back sleeper and prefer a somewhat firmer mattress, so that's my point of reference. I like this mattress far better than any previous mattress I've owned, despite it costing a decent bit less. It is pretty firm, but that's a selling point to me. It seems to offer quite good support across the entirety of my body - no sense of getting swallowed that some memory foam options seem to have. There is no sense of disturbance from someone else moving around in the bed (unless they keep kicking you and have no respect for personal space...) which is great. Overall, really love the mattress.
Just wish it didn't way literally 100lbs - it can be challenging to move about
Just received it. Rolled it out. Laying on it now. This mattress is incredible. I have hip dysplasia and a compressed vertebrae, this thing is the bomb. Delivered in 24 hours for an express rate. Worth every penny.
I bought it on a recommendation from a friend who has a bad back he is a side sleeper. Good and firm after you sink in 4-6 inches but not getting a good night's sleep on my back. It is better than the worn out mattress it replaced but still trying to get my back to like it. I want to like it, it is a quality product but not fitting my needs.
I did find that my back pain went away when I slept on this mattress but my husband, from day one, felt like the sides of the mattress didn't support him. We took away our old box spring to make sure it wasn't an issue with the box spring. He finally put a couple of books under the edge of his side and he felt like he wouldn't roll off (he's about 260 pounds). I like a firm mattress, and have had a latex one before from a local company in Eastern Massachusetts but I also felt it wasn't perfect. Maybe it's time for a good box spring again. If it were just me, I might have kept it, but since the hubby hates it and I'd give it a 7 out of 10, I guess it goes back. Good news is when I "chatted" with the Amazon rep, she said the shipping company would call in 2-3 days for a pick up and return.
I have fibromyalgia and wanted to love this mattress. In the short time we had it I woke up with my hand asleep due to pinching a nerve, my neck was messed up, headache and my pressure points are in agony. I did give it three stars, because the return was very easy.
Thankful we were able to purchase this and get a quick turnaround on the delivery. It's a great mattress and doesn't seem to get hot. Very comfortable to my husband and me. Our dog loves it too! P-E-R-F-E-C-T! Great price, great quality. We purchased a second one for our daughter and son-in-law and they love it. Our grands love it too!
Hard as a rock... I am in the process of trying to figure out how to return the mattress on the 100 night guarantee.. I cannot get comfortable.
Love this mattress. It does that several days to get use to it but well worth it. I'm a 66 yr old woman & found it very easy to unbox the mattress. Once the box was open I cut the flaps off & turned it upside down on the box spring. Lifted the off the mattress which was wrapped in a white binding. Removed the binding with the tool provided in the box. The mattress did the rest. Love this mattress!
Really great mattress! I was able tu use it the first day, as it gave off almost no odor, unlike some other mattresses, which I would have had to store in my garage for weeks to defume. The price is great also. I have had my mattress for a week now and sleep well on it, which for a 69 year old women, with all kinds of aches and pains is a blessing! Also it came in only 2 after ordering ,just before Christmas. Great experience, all the stars from me.
after 2 nights i realized i had been sleeping through the night . figured it was afluke, but it continued to be the case! don't know how they do it . must be magic.
I buy a new mattress usually bet 1500 to 2000 range every 18 months. Last mattress was an I comfort genius which I would give 3.8 out of 5. And I prefer a hard mattress.
The Casper: hard like concrete. Well, not really but u get the picture. For the first time in 13 years I have had my shoulders and upper back knotted up with muscle spasms the size of Mount Everest. And I owe it all to my brand new Casper bed. Do not buy this bed if you are a side sleeper. emphasis added. A high end topper may solve this problem but I will end up returning this mattress. I'm at a loss at how so many ppl can write such rave reviews.
I'm miserable and now have to figure out how to return this beast that does not fit in the little box it came from.
I purchased this mattress for my daughter (she had grown out of her toddler bed). It works very well on top of the Lightheaded bed we bought with a slat rail base. It has just the right firmness and softness to keep her comfortable throughout the night. And it was in perfect shape right out of the box.
I was worried this would sink in other foam mattresses, just a little as im a side sleeper, and thougjt the firmness rating of 7 would balance that out.i have chronic back issues most if my life, so too firm can also be bad. It's a good mattress but it is hard on a side sleeper with back problems; I'll definitely need some sort of additional mattress topper to help relieve the pressure on shoulder/hip while sleeping.
We bought this bed since we had seen great reviews on Amazon. I have to say this bed has given me the best sleep of my life! I literally dream everyday when I fall asleep on this mattress and once I hit the sheets, I am dead (totally passed out). Definitely will recommend this mattress.
love this Mattress! I've had it for a little over a month now and could not be happier with my decision. Like other users have mentioned the first could of days I would wake up sore as I was still adjusting to the new mattress. After about a week I was fully acclimated to the new matress and have been having the best night's sleep in years.
Its awesome! Thank you very much
The more we sleep on it, the more we like it. I know that does not seem to make sense, but it is true. That is probably why Casper offers a 100 night trial period. Look up their website and read about the product. It is absolutely true. The mattress offers you the correct support without making you hot and sweaty. I am a 300 pound six foot plus athletic man that can toss and turn without disturbing my lovely petite one hundred five pound wife. I am very happy to get an American made mattress that really works, and does not beat up the budget.
My husband and I recently purchased this mattress. I have to say we are pleased, but after sleeping on a spring mattress with a pillow top for over 10 years- it takes a little getting use to. I read all the reviews about the mattress on Amazon and they are very accurate. The only complaint I have is my shoulders being a little sore. But the firmness has helped my lower back pain. In the past I was a belly sleeper, but have not been able to sleep on my stomach in about 2 years. I thought the firmness would allow me to go back to sleeping on my stomach, but I was wrong. I don't think anyone can go wrong with the 100 night trial they offer- but be mindful you have to order from the Casper website for the trial and warranty to be valid! Also, with the trial- if you are not pleased after the first 30 days, they will send a topper to try as well. We have not opted to try the topper yet- but haven't ruled it out. We also sprung for the sheets and pillows. For the price, I wasn't overly impressed with the sheets. But they are nice. And the pillows are nice and fluffy! Which is kinda nice for the contrast in firm mattress. Here is my link to get $50 off!!
Also, when we opened the box, there was no smell and was fully ready to sleep on in about 5 minutes. The instructions also said to open with the little tool they sent starting at a little dot. My husband and I never saw the dot, but we're very careful not to cut into the mattress as other reviews had warned.
its been 24 days and its the best mattress I have ever had. not too soft and not too hard its just right. fast shipping. thanks.
Noticably changed the quality of sleep I get. Love this mattress. Ultimate sleep experience when paired with performance sheets like SHEEX.
I have been sleeping on this mattress for almost two months now, and I am still loving it.
Pros: Was comfortable for me on the first night, firm yet still deforms around body contours. Works well both when sleeping on my back and on my side.
Cons: Empty space next to me where a significant other is supposed to be. Yes mom, I know I am 30 and still single, I am working on it. Initial smell of a memory foam mattress (not like a lovely new car, unless that new car was recently sprayed with nasty chemicals).
When my husband lies down on the mattress, he falls asleep. I am satisfied perfectly. :p
Super comfortable bed! I was a bit skeptical at first of all these "mattress in a box" options and didn't know how to pick one over another (wisely). While Casper is pricier than its competitors, I'm happy with my decision and believe it's in the quality and comfort of the product.
I do admit that I was a bit sore/experiencing discomfort the first week or so, until my body adjusted.
Would definitely recommend this to others!
Mom is thrilled, she can sleep again. Arrived fast!
fabulously comfortable, but does sleep hot. I like that, but I sleep alone. It may be uncomfortably hot for couples.
It was a cheap alternative that I deeply appreciate. This was a great decision, I sleep soundly and comfortably.
Literally the most amazing mattress. My fiance has scoliosis and this mattress has worked wonders for her.
Caused significant back pain almost immediately. Worst sleep ever.
This is the best mattress on the planet. Not too soft, not too firm. Absolutely love it.
I enjoy this bed. It is firm, but that's my thing
Wow! For the price and how well I slept on my queen-sized Casper...this deal cannot be beat. My back felt great and it was so comfortable! You won't be disappointed!
Best mattress we've ever slept on
Not comfortable, very hard.
