Becky's Thoughts On The Casper Essential Mattress

This is a Casper Essential mattress in a box. It is rolled up and vacuum-sealed to reduce the size for easy transportation.

This mattress is the perfect choice if you like a medium to firm mattress with pressure relief. A dual foam layer provides a bounce back feel that helps to keep your spine properly aligned as you sleep. A knitted cover keeps your mattress clean and fresh, while removable covers are all machine washable. The hypoallergenic properties are great for those with allergies, and a 10-year guarantee provides peace of mind.

The Casper Essential Mattress features a 60 night sleep trial meaning that you can return the product in that time and exchange against any other product in the range from the retailer, great news for those buying online who cannot try in-store first, protecting you and reducing stress in what is still a very considered purchase.

What Makes The Casper Essential Mattress Great?


This product is unlikely to cause any sort of allergic reaction. Ideal if you suffer from any sort of allergy problems

Made in the UK

These are made and manufactured in the UK, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine UK manufacturing.

Handcrafted in the UK

Handcrafted in the UK means that the product is built here, by people being paid a fair and honest wage using certified and safe products of good quality and construction. UK manufacturing is some of th best in the world and all of that is reflected in this product


The fabrics, materials and fillings of this mattress are the result of what has been deemed vegan-friendly materials. Ideal for those expressing their beliefs while still requiring good levels of comfort and support from a product

Pressure Relief

One of the big complaints when settling into a new mattress is that it does not feel as comfortable as they hoped, where this mattress shines is in the enhanced pressure relief that it offers. Each part of your body exerts different amounts of pressure against the mattress and through the use of springs and foams, these products are able to offer significant pressure relief as a result across the entire body.

Medium to Firm

Firmer than the average mattress, a medium to firm mattress is ideally suited to those that are looking for extra back support but still require and amount of comfort from their mattress. Ideally suited for a large range of the populus and becoming much more common, deviating away from the previous medium-for-everyone model.

Knitted Cover

It is common in the industry to have a knitted cover, these covers can come in a variety of patterns but are typically hard wearing and do not present problems for consumers.

Removable cover

Removable covers are great. We don't typically replace mattresses for 7-8 years. That's a lot of body fluids and protectors and sheets can only do so much. To that end getting that extra layer of cleanliness goes a huge way toward ensuring you get longevity out of your product.


Single sided means only one side is comfy. Positives are you only need to rotate the mattress occassionaly rather than the more cumbersome rotate and flip. Downside is the lifespan of the product may suffer as a result, only marginal, but worth mentioning.

Approved by the National Bed Federation

The NBF is one of the most prestigious awarding federations in the industry, helped slightly by the fact that it is one of the only, however, it is still a great source of comfort knowing that this product holds approval by the team

10 Year Guarantee

A 10 year guarantee is a huge reflection of just how much trust the manufacturer and the retailer have in their product. for reference, mandatory requirements are for a 1 year guarantee.

18cm deep

18cm is a fair depth for a mattress. Not too deep to require specialist deep sheets, not too thin to make you question the quality of the materials within. Just about right.


Rolled up mattresses are ideal for anyone looking at trying to get a mattress up a tight staircase or in a car to bring home from the shops. Do not missunderstand just how troublesome getting a mattress up stairs can be. Heavy and cumbersome, sometimes a rolled up mattress that expands to the side of a full mattress anyway, may be the better option

Fire Resistant

Fire resistant does not mean the product will never catch fire, rather, it will not go up in flames quite so quickly. Resistant to fire in the same way that I am resistant to kisses, sooner or later you end up giving in.

Includes turning handles

Oh turning handles are pointless I hear you say. Just try flipping and turning this product without handles. It can be a pain. Remember that mattresses should be both rotated and flipped frequently, not a problem if you are opting for a sinle, but those doubles and kings can get heavy. Handles are very good.

Depth: 18cm

Washable cover

Keep your mattress fresh and hygienic with a removable washable cover. Prevent moisture from building up over time. Wash your mattress cover at least once a year to remove all bacteria, dust-mites and odours and alleviate allergies by discouraging future dust mites and bed bugs from nesting.

A great-value Casper mattress

Perfect comfort and support - medium-firm for the best of both worlds

A medium firm tension mattress is slightly firmer than your average medium mattress. This is ideal for those who either prefer a little bit more support, or, those that have a slightly higher BMI than average. You may also benefit from a medium firmness mattress where you are suffering from neck/back pain as the additional support can help prevent and alleviate these symptoms.

Ergonomically-designed base layer supports your hips and shoulders

Breathable top comfort layer provides just the right level of softness and spring-back

No need to turn over, much easier to care for

Rolled-up and boxed - easier for you, better for our environment

Customer Reviews For The Casper Essential Mattress

Based on 49 review

Was a Which Best Buy which helped me make up my mind. Easy to purchase and get delivered online. Comes in a box so isn??t cumbersome and doesn??t take up much room if not ready to use straight away. A very competitive price but happened to be on offer when I purchased which was a pleasant surprise. Is very comfortable and offers good level support ie doesn??t dip or sag. Also comes with its own cover so no mattress protector needed.


Ive been sleeping on my Casper for about 6 weeks now, not overly convinced on the first few nights but now it perfect. The slightly firm feel has grown on me and the subtle lower back issue Ive had is now gone, Im assuming its the mattress. In summary its comfortable for me with just the right support.


It is easy to handle and to swivel round and if you like a very firm mattress then this would be suitable. Deliver was excellent, just 48 hours from placing the order to delivery. I took the much appreciated option of removal of the old mattress, and unpacking the new one.


Moved from an 11 year old sprung mattress to a memory mattress with no springs! What a difference, the Casper mattress is in a different league. Molds to my body perfectly, supporting my back, even though I tend to sleep on my side. Expensive but worth it in my opinion.


Prompt acknowledgement of order and delivery within days. Communication from start to finish was excellent. I am sleeping much better as the mattress provides great support. We were delighted by the service and the great product at a great price!


My Casper is lovely, meets my high expectations, foam and cover are really comfy and doesnt slip around on my bed like my old mattress. Slightly firmer than expected but after the first night I was a convert. Cant wait to go to bed now!


Really comfy for the starter mattress of the Casper range. Looks great when it arrives in a box, easy to unpack and was sleeping on it 4 hours later.No aches or pains, way better than my old memory foam mattress.


After sleeping on a sprung mattresses for any years, this was a big change. Slept beautifully from night one and no back ache in the morning! Fantastic purchase which has improved the quality of our sleep ï?´


Lovely mattress, sleep and support are excellent. Feeling great, its not too firm, but not soft either. Looks thin but more than does the job and good value, especially for a Casper.


Appears well made. Bought this as a Which? recommended product because I needed a mattress that kept the body cool. I think the washable cover is a good feature.


Great looking and good quality mattress. Super comfy. Took my back a few days to adapt to the new foam style but now I never wanna get out of bed


First night I fell straight asleep not done that in a long while. I opted for a firm mattress and its perfect. The right size and spot on


Easy to unpack (from vacuum-packed) and put into immediate use.Has removable by zip, washable outer cover.


Great mattress, plenty of support and perfectly comfortable, quite shallow which suits my low bedframe.


Great mattress, lots of support and comfort not overly deep which looks great on my Swedish bed frame.


No roll together, good support,comfort and had a good nights sleep since it came out of the box
