Mattress Review

So, if you have actually been out searching for bed mattress just recently, this might be the very first time you have actually heard of Casper. Casper is a new company with an objective to change the way individuals get bed mattress by making it a simple, transparent and satisfying process rather than something to dread. Their bed mattress is mostly offered online and they deliver direct to you totally free. Sometimes even by bike if you live in the NYC 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 extremely familiar with it in Europe. Based upon my experience, latex is the single finest layering product to utilize in a mattress. It's breathable, keeps one's cool, decreases pressure points even much better than memory foam and lasts longer than other fabric. However latex has a little a natural "spring" to it, so to balance it out it's layered over an 1.5" of 4lb density memory foam.

The memory foam helps to take in energy and helps support the bed, and this combination of layering latex over memory foam is how they attain this special feel. I've remained in the bed mattress industry for 14 years and I have actually never ever seen anyone else do this. I can tell they did some extensive screening to come up with this mix, because the feel is perfect. They absolutely accomplished. Read more about the Casper design here.

Who Is This Best For?

Casper is an ideal pick for you if you like the idea of a spring-free mattress however dislike that sort of sluggish moving, quicksand feel typical with numerous memory foam bed mattress. This bed conforms immediately. It's excellent for back, side and stomach sleepers, however, I would say that if you're trying to find something more extreme, like extremely soft or very company, this may not be best for you. (At the same time, I usual caution people to avoid the extremes anyhow unless you have a medical condition that requires it.).


The important things I like the best about Casper (besides their transparent supply chain) is their careful attention to detail. I can tell that they were very conscientious about the fabrics they opted to utilize. The bed mattress is also 100 % made in the USA. For instance, they chose a non-allergenic version of latex that is accredited to the Oeko Tex 100 conventional, which is a really difficult European certification that indicates there is nothing in the latex that is in any way unsafe to people or the environment. And both the memory foam and foam base layer are CertiPUR certified to have low VOC's, consist of no PBDE's, prohibited phthalates, no formaldehyde and no heavy metals. (I encourage people to usual search for memory foam that is CertiPUR accredited.).

I likewise actually value their fire barrier. That may appear like an uncommon thing to explain, however the majority of people don't recognize that memory foam mattresses are normally doused with chemical fire retardants in order to pass the federal fire tests. Casper wished to be able to pass them without utilizing any harmful chemicals or finishings, so they utilize 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 actually works by reducing the flame by forming an obstacle when burned. It's also certified to the Oeko Tex 100 basic, meanings that it ares safe for babies. This was an extremely thoughtful proceed their part.

Another giant positive to me is the distinct feel they've been able to produce. It's really comfortable. It's the ideal balance of convenience and assistance with no bothersome '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 in the past-- layering memory foam over latex-- but that completely beats the purpose of using latex in the first place. You really want to be right on top of the latex to get all the good benefits of it due to the fact that it is such a great layering material.
