It’s been almost 7 months that Casper has launched in the UK market and it’s time we review it! For any Londoner like myself, Casper is already a very familiar brand, as their ads are literally everywhere, and we mean everywhere! They offer a combo mattress that features both a memory foam layer and a latex one which is a really interesting combination. It’s a US based company but all mattresses are manufactured in the UK and as you expect they ship in a carton box! This means that you need to give it some extra days before start to making any conclusions about it! So let’s move to the full review below so we can share our thoughts about the Casper mattress.
The Casper mattress features a total of four layers and the sleeping surface.
- Top Layer: A 3.8cm Latex foam layer developed by Dunlop which helps the mattress breath and provides you with the extra comfort and bounce you need from your mattress.
- Middle Layer: A 3.8cm layer made of memory foam which provides pressure relief and is placed just below the latex layer to help the mattress stay cool throughout the night.
- Bottom Layer: A 3.8cm poly foam base layer essentially connects the mattress to it’s base.
- Base: A 12.7cm support foam layer which is essentially the base of the Casper mattress.
FIRMNESS & COMFORT
The Casper mattress is a medium firm mattress that is designed to be suitable for the majority of people, which is expected from a one mattress fits all design philosophy. In my opinion I would say it feels like a 6.5 on the firmness scale, with 10 being really firm. Lying on it on my back I felt a good support around my body and the memory foam seems to be working really well providing this hugging feeling. When I turned sideways, support remained the same and I didn’t feel any weight transferring which is a very good thing as it does not affect your sleep. However, the position which this mattress performs the least well is the stomach one. When I turned, I felt a bit more sinkage than I was expecting and my spine was not in an ideal form. As I have said numerous times, I am a stomach sleeper, so it is hard for me to find a mattress that supports my sleeping habits. If you are a stomach sleeper, maybe you should read the Hyde & Sleep Hybrid mattress review. The sleeping surface is of the highest quality and I was really impressed. It felt nice and soft and in general it has this premium feeling that we all look in a mattress. Overall, the mattress performed quite well and there is no coincidence that Casper is considered a top mattress!
BED TYPE COMPATIBILITY
Following the norm, Casper can work on any flat surface. So you can put it on your floor or just use your current bed frame. The manufacturer suggests a wooden slatted or platform bed but you can use any flat surface. The mattress comes in normal sizes but it is not coming on IKEA compatible sizes. If you have an IKEA bed frame then you should check either Eve or Simba as they have EU sizes.
DELIVERY & PACKAGING
The Casper mattress comes in a high quality carton box which is delivered straight to your door. They offer a Free Delivery for all orders which usually takes 1-2 business days. Casper only delivers on weekdays and currently do not have a weekend delivery ability. If this changes, we will update you on this post. The delivery service was really good, mattress came in 18h since I placed the order and the couriers help me carry the box to my living room. The only negative about their delivery service is the lack of Weekend delivery slots.
TRIAL PERIOD & WARRANTY
The Casper mattress comes with a 10 year warranty and also an amazing 100 night trial period which allows you enough time to make up your mind. This is really great, as buying a mattress online can be a bit tricky! In the case you want to return your mattress, Casper offers a free return service via UPS which is a trouble free process. So really, there is no need to worry about it too much as Casper have you covered anyway!
IS CASPER FOR ME?
That is the question obviously and I will try to give my opinion and hopefully help you decide this.The Casper mattress is suitable for those looking for:
- A memory foam mattress that feels medium firm and is built with really high manufacturing and designing standards.
- A mattress that offers good support and minimal weight transfer even for heavier and bigger bodies like myself.
- A mattress made and shipped from the UK with good service from a company you know you can trust.
If you look for all these, then the Casper Mattress should be very in your consideration list. A high quality mattress, packed with great service and guarantee makes a package that is hard not to notice. For any questions you may have, feel free to contact us!
