Mattress Review

So, if you've been out looking for bed mattress recently, this might be the very first time you've heard of Casper. Casper is a new company with a mission to change the method individuals purchase bed mattress by making it a simple, transparent and enjoyable procedure instead of something to fear. Their bed mattress is mostly sold online and they ship direct to you for free. Often even by bike if you stay in the NYC location!


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 everyone in America recognizes with latex, however they're really familiar with it in Europe. Based on my experience, latex is the single best layering fabric to utilize in a mattress. It's breathable, keeps cool, reduces pressure points even much better than memory foam and lasts longer than any other fabric. However latex has a little 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 take in energy and helps support the bed, and this mix of layering latex over memory foam is how they accomplish this distinct feel. I've been in the bed mattress market for 14 years and I've never seen anyone else do this. I can tell they did some extensive screening to come up with this combination, 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 concept of a spring-free bed mattress however dislike that sort of slow moving, quicksand feel common with numerous memory foam bed mattress. This bed adheres quickly. It's fantastic for back, side and stomach sleepers, however, I would say that if you're trying to find something more severe, like very soft or very company, this may not be very well for you. (At the same time, I constantly caution people to prevent the extremes anyhow unless you have a medical condition that requires it.).


Things I such as the best about Casper (besides their transparent supply chain) is their careful attention to information. I can inform that they were really diligent about the fabrics they chose to use. The bed mattress is likewise 100 % made in the USA. For example, they chose a non-allergenic variation of latex that is licensed to the Oeko Tex 100 standard, which is a very challenging European accreditation that means there is nothing in the latex that remains 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, consist of no PBDE's, forbade phthalates, no formaldehyde and no heavy metals. (I advise individuals to constantly look for memory foam that is CertiPUR licensed.).

I likewise actually value their fire barrier. That may look like an uncommon thing to explain, however the majority of people don't understand that memory foam mattresses are typically doused with chemical fire retardants in order to pass the federal fire tests. Casper wanted to have the ability to pass them without making use of any harmful chemicals or finishes, so they utilize an exclusive knit sock made with a yarn that has a silica core. So instead of the typical spray chemical fire retardants, it's a material wrapping around the inner layers and it really works by suppressing the flame by forming an obstacle when burned. It's also certified to the Oeko Tex 100 conventional, meanings that it ares safe for children. This was a very thoughtful move on their part.

Another huge favorable to me is the special feel they have actually had the ability to produce. It's very comfy. It's the best balance of comfort and assistance without any annoying 'quicksand' feel whatsoever. I think their concept of layering zoned latex over memory foam was a stroke of genius. I have actually seen the reverse done in the past-- layering memory foam over latex-- but that completely beats the function of using latex in the first place. You truly wish to correct on top of the latex to obtain all of the great benefits of it because it is such a wonderful layering product.
