Mattress Review

So, if you have actually been out shopping for mattresses recently, this might be the first time you have actually become aware of Casper. Casper is a new business with a mission to change the method individuals purchase bed mattress by making it an easy, transparent and pleasurable process instead of something to fear. Their mattress is mainly offered online and they ship direct to you totally free. Sometimes even by bicycle if you live in the NYC location!


This is a spring-free mattress. In place of springs they layer latex over memory foam over a 7" high density foam base layer. On the top is a 1.5" layer of zoned non-allergenic latex (styrene-butadiene or SBR). Now, not everybody in America recognizes with latex, however they're really acquainted with it in Europe. Based on my experience, latex is the single best layering product to utilize in a mattress. It's breathable, keeps cool, reduces pressure points even better than memory foam and lasts longer than other material. But latex has a bit of a natural "spring" to it, so to stabilize it out it's layered over an 1.5" of 4lb density memory foam.

The memory foam helps to absorb energy and helps stabilize the bed, and this combination of layering latex over memory foam is how they achieve this unique feel. I have actually been in the bed mattress industry for 14 years and I've never ever seen anyone else do this. I can inform they did some comprehensive screening to come up with this mix, since the feel is perfect. They absolutely accomplished. Learn more about the Casper design here.

Who Is This Best For?

Casper is an ideal pick for you if you like the concept of a spring-free mattress but dislike that sort of sluggish moving, quicksand feel common with lots of memory foam bed mattress. This bed conforms instantly. It's excellent for back, side and stomach sleepers, nevertheless, I would say that if you're looking for something more severe, like exceptionally soft or exceptionally firm, this may not be very well for you. (At the same time, I always warn people to avoid the extremes anyway unless you have a medical condition that needs it.).


The thing I like the best about Casper (besides their transparent supply chain) is their precise focus on detail. I can tell that they were really conscientious about the fabrics they chose to make use of. The bed mattress is likewise 100 % made in the USA. For instance, they chose a non-allergenic variation of latex that is certified to the Oeko Tex 100 standard, which is an extremely difficult European certification that implies there is absolutely nothing in the latex that is in any way harmful to humans or the environment. And both the memory foam and foam base layer are CertiPUR certified to have low VOC's, include no PBDE's, forbade phthalates, no formaldehyde and no heavy metals. (I advise people to always try to find memory foam that is CertiPUR accredited.).

I also actually appreciate their fire obstacle. That may look like an uncommon thing to mention, however the majority of people do not recognize that memory foam mattresses are typically splashed with chemical fire retardants in order to pass the federal fire tests. Casper wished to be able to pass them without utilizing any poisonous chemicals or coatings, so they make use of a proprietary knit sock made with a yarn that has a silica core. So instead of the usual spray chemical fire retardants, it's a material wrapping around the inner layers and it really works by reducing the flame by forming a barrier when burned. It's likewise certified to the Oeko Tex 100 standard, which means it's even safe for babies. This was an extremely thoughtful proceed their part.

Another big positive to me is the distinct feel they have actually had the ability to create. It's really comfortable. It's the ideal balance of convenience and encourage without any annoying 'quicksand' feel whatsoever. I think their idea of layering zoned latex over memory foam was a stroke of genius. I've seen the reverse done in the past-- layering memory foam over latex-- but that entirely beats the function of using latex in the first place. You actually wish to be right on top of the latex to obtain all the great benefits of it because it is such a wonderful layering material.
