Mattress Review

So, if you've been out looking for bed mattress just recently, this might be the first time you've become aware of Casper. Casper is a new business with an objective to alter the way individuals purchase mattresses by making it an easy, transparent and enjoyable procedure instead of something to dread. Their bed mattress is primarily offered online and they ship direct to you free of charge. Sometimes even by bike if you stay in the New York City area!


This is a spring-free bed 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 very knowledgeable about it in Europe. Based on my experience, latex is the single finest layering product to use in a mattress. It's breathable, keeps one's cool, lowers pressure points even much better than memory foam and lasts longer than other fabric. However latex has a little 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 assists to take in energy and assists stabilize the bed, and this mix of layering latex over memory foam is how they accomplish this special feel. I have actually been in the bed mattress market for 14 years and I've never seen anybody else do this. I can inform they did some extensive screening to come up with this combination, because the feel is ideal. They definitely nailed it. Learn more about the Casper design here.

Who Is This Best For?

Casper is a perfect pick for you if you like the idea of a spring-free mattress however hate that sort of sluggish moving, quicksand feel common with lots of memory foam bed mattress. This bed adheres quickly. It's great for back, side and stomach sleepers, however, I would say that if you're trying to find something more severe, like extremely soft or very company, this might not be very well for you. (At the same time, I always warn people to prevent the extremes anyway unless you have a medical condition that requires it.).


The important things I such as the very best about Casper (besides their transparent supply chain) is their careful focus on information. I can tell that they were very conscientious about the materials they decided to use. The bed mattress is also 100 % made in the UNITED STATE. For example, they chose a non-allergenic variation of latex that is certified to the Oeko Tex 100 basic, which is a very tough European certification that implies there is absolutely nothing in the latex that is in any way hazardous to human beings or the environment. And both the memory foam and foam base layer are CertiPUR certified to have low VOC's, contain no PBDE's, forbade phthalates, no formaldehyde and no heavy metals. (I recommend people to constantly search for memory foam that is CertiPUR licensed.).

I likewise truly appreciate their fire obstacle. That may look like an uncommon thing to explain, however the majority of people do not realize that memory foam bed mattress are usually blown out with chemical fire retardants in order to pass the federal fire tests. Casper wished to be able to pass them without making use of any toxic chemicals or coverings, so they use 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 fabric wrapping around the inner layers and it in fact works by suppressing the flame by forming an obstacle when burned. It's likewise licensed to the Oeko Tex 100 standard, meanings that it's even safe for children. This was a really thoughtful move on their part.

Another giant positive to me is the unique feel they've been able to create. It's really comfy. It's the best balance of comfort and support with no irritating 'quicksand' feel whatsoever. I think their concept of layering zoned latex over memory foam was a stroke of genius. I've seen the reverse done before-- layering memory foam over latex-- but that completely defeats the function of using latex in the first place. You truly want to correct on top of the latex to get all of the great advantages of it since it is such a fantastic layering material.
