Who Do We Think Matches With Casper?
Versatility Fans – If you’re in a couple and your partner has a different body type (80% of couples are in this boat) or you’re a person who switches positions a lot, you might like how versatile Casper is. They’ve built this bed to work with multiple shapes in different positions by strategically layering their foam. Spine Alignment Seekers – Having problems sleeping in a neutral position? Zoning in Casper may help you out. Firmer foam in the center of the bed helps hold your hips in line, which can be a struggle, especially for stomach sleepers. Hot Sleepers – If you’ve shied away from memory beds in the past because of heat retention concerns, you have little to worry about with Casper. They’ve placed it lower so you still get great body conformance with breathable, cooler foams closer to your body.
Possible Casper Complaints:
No Innerspring Feel – This is an all-foam bed, as as such as some pretty great motion isolation, but if you want more of an innerspring bounce in your bed, you may steer towards the company’s hybrid bed. Foam Doesn’t Slowly Respond – Fans of traditional memory beds are often looking for materials that slowly respond, but that’s not the feel here. By building the top layers with responsive foams, the brand aims to make repositioning easier and provide a less “stuck” feeling.

Construction: What’s inside Casper?
Casper is a bed-in-a-box foam brand that stands 12 inches tall. Its four layers are wrapped in a durable polyester fabric.
The first layer is 1.5 inches of open-cell proprietary comfort foam that gives the mattress some bounce and breathability to keep the surface from overheating. The second layer is 1.5 inches of responsive high-density memory foam for pressure relief and motion isolation. Keeping this layer away from the surface helps to keep the trapped heat associated with memory foams away from the body. The third layer is 2 inches of Zoned Support™, a transition layer that is firmer in the center of the bed where your hips are positioned to help with the extra weight that tends to concentrate in this region, but softer around your shoulders and knees, for additional pressure relief. Since your body is getting tailored firmness levels, your spine should remain in neutral alignment. The fourth layer is a 7-inch layer of dense foam that lends durability, provides support, and creates the overall foundation of the mattress.
First Impression: How Does It Feel?
The outsides of this mattress look sporty and modern, with grey side panels and white top. The top feels soft and cool to the touch. Pressing into the foams, you should notice how responsive they feel or how quickly they regain their shape when pressure is released. Pushing deeper, you’ll feel the slower responding memory foam that was built to conform to your shape.
Lying down, you should feel immediate sinkage into the top layer of breathable foams as the lower layer of memory foam slowly conforms to the shape of your body. With built-in gradual transitions between each layer of foam, you shouldn’t feel “bottomed out” or up against the firmness of the base, though the supportive system should keep your body level, using the zoning in the third layer.
