Casper The Casper Mattress review 2020

The Casper Mattress is an all foam mattress. Where many of Caspers competitors have opted for microsprings in recent years, the Casper Mattress keeps things simple. Not a bad thing when you consider that it's price offers very good value for the level of quality it offers. Alas, this mattress has a 13cm core, on top of this we find a 4cm layer of relatively plush memory foam sandwiched between a further 4cm layer of regular foam. Casper has catagorised this mattress as one-sided and places it in the firmness category of 'not too firm or too soft' which felt like a long winded way of just saying medium. In our own tests we reached similar conclusions that it is ideal for the majority of sleepers with that medium tension.
What if I want to try it out?
Unlike many bed-in-a-box mattresses, this particular model from caspere is now available from several independant high street retailers. This allows you to go and try the product before commiting to buy, remember though, if you order direct from Casper, you get a 100-night sleep trial during which time you could always return it for a full refund if you didn't like the feel of it.
What is it like?
We found that this product offered enviable support and that the spine will be well supported by this mattress. Due to it's firmness it is ideally suited at supporting both shorter and lighter people in all positions along with taller and heavier people who prefer to typically sleep on their back.
Our own testing found that the general quality of support doesn't deteriorate at all over time, or at least not in our somewhat limited trial. However, this is backed up heavily in the customer reviews found on trustpilot, all of which say much the same thing. Sagging will also be a thing of the past due to the construction utilising high quality materials. Officially Casper say that the product is likely to soften over time, but provided you continue to rotate your mattress at pre-determined intervals, you'll find that the softness will be spread across the entire surface of the mattress.
Should you or your partner happen to be a light sleeper, you'll be delighted to know that this mattress is great at absorbing movement and bounce. This means that you are far less likely to be disturbed by your partner's movements whenever they have a move about.
Due to the memory foam layer and it's inherent properties as a material, the Casper feels quite warm to lie on and does absorb a lot of the heat given off your body. Great news for those chilly nights. However, even on hot nights the mattress shouldn't become overly damp with sweat as the fabric used in the construction of the Casper mattress is breathable enough to allow moisture to pass through.
Is it suitable?
The Casper may not be suitable if you like to switch sleeping positions several times during the night, this is due to the restrictive movement of memory foam this deep, you really do mold into position and movement can become noticeable, albeit not difficult.
You don't need to flip this mattress, which weighs a fairly hefty 28kg, however, you should rotate it from head to toe every three to six months. Fortunately this is one of the only bed-in-a-box mattresses that feature hidden handles allowing the entire affair to be fairly manageable.
One thing to be aware of if you are considering purchasing a memory foam mattress that comes sealed, the mattress does tend to give off quite a strong smell when you first unpack it. This is normal and will naturally subside within 24hours but is something to be aware of going into the purchase.
Should I buy it?
We certainly enjoyed it, the small downsides do not diminish what is otherwise a very reasonably priced and competant leep into the already-saturated marketplace. If you are looking for a firm mattress with memory foam that doesn't cause a lot of excess bounce when moving around, this could be the ideal mattress for yourself.
