III. Casper vs Leesa Mattress: 20 Major Categories
(advantage highlighted in yellow)
|1||Good Value?||Awesome value! Casper has a tremendous combination of foams that give the sleeper a perfect balance of comfort and support, all at a very affordable price. Starting from the top, Casper’s Breathable Open-Cell Foam layer provides luxurious comfort and a pressure relieving soft feel while still giving the sleeper great support, cooling, and bounce. Next is Casper’s High Density Memory Foam Layer. It offers a more firm feel to give the sleeper ideal support and a nice, gentle hug. Below the memory foam is Casper’s newly developed Zoned Transition Foam Layer. This innovative foam layer contours perfectly to each part of the body offering amazing comfort, great support, and proper alignment of the spine. It is firm where the body needs it firm (hips) and soft where the body needs it soft (shoulders). Lastly, the Durable Support Foam layer provides the foundation so that the body doesn’t sink too far into the bed. In combination, these thoughtfully made foam layers are changing the industry. Consumers see that the Casper Mattress offers a fantastic sleep experience at a great value and are forgoing the traditional, expensive brick and mortar stores.||Great mix of low to medium price and great comfort, support, and very little heat retention if any. Innovative Avena foam provides market advantage. Fairly affordable, super quality, and ultimate high-end appeal.|
|2||Comfortable?||Amazingly comfortable. A sleeper literally feels weightless on a Casper mattress. The fantastic combination of Casper’s soft, breathable cover and its top three layers of pressure-relieving premium foams give a sleeper an Awesome Night Sleep. The high quality polyester/polypropylene blend cover is not only soft-to-the-touch, but was specifically designed to keep the mattress breathable and cool. The top layer of Breathable Open-Cell Foam adds to the relaxing feel by providing additional luxurious softness and great pressure relief. To balance out this softness, the next layer of responsive memory foam gives some firmness to the overall feel. It also provides great support and gently hugs the body’s curves. Finally, the transition layer of Zoned Support™ foam beautifully contours specifically to each area of the body for additional pressure relief and tranquility. Together the cover and all premium foam layers give the mattress a not too soft, but not too firm feel. It is more of a medium, “just right” feel.||Feels amazing. Great general feeling, but not plush. More of a push back feeling, but still very comfortable. Extra cozy, gently hugs, conforms to and cradles the body. Bounces back into shape quickly.|
|3||Supportive?||Fantastic support. In addition to the great comfortable feel, the Casper mattress also provides terrific support. While the top two layers of Open-Cell Foam and Responsive Memory Foam do give a good amount of support at the top of the mattress, the Zoned Transition Foam layer and Durable Support layer at the bottom are responsible for a bulk of the support. First, the newly designed transition layer features Zoned Support™ foam that is fantastic for proper spinal alignment and conformability. This premium foam layer gives extra support to areas of the body that need extra support, like the hip and back. In contrast, the Zoned Support layer provides less support to areas of the body that don’t need it. Second, the Durable Support layer is the foundation of the mattress and holds up the rest of the bed. It is made of heavy-duty poly foam, gives the mattress its structure, and props up the body so it does not sink too far into the bed.||1.8 lb/ft density. Good for most people, but may be inadequate for some larger people and couples. 6” core foam layer adds structure and strength. Low weight may cause sleeper to move around some.|
|4||Durable / Quality Built?||The Casper Mattress is both built with innovative quality and very durable. As evidence, Casper has top-notch engineering, performs in-depth testing, uses premium foams, and has brilliantly designed products. First, Casper has over 40 researchers, scientists, and engineers with more than 50 patents, obsessed with designing the perfect mattress. They work at Casper Labs in San Francisco, a 5,000 square foot facility consisting of research space, analytical equipment, design rooms, testing areas, prototype places, and even mock bedrooms. In these labs they scour through millions of points of data, and based on customer feedback, continuously try to make improvements to their products. Second, Casper does very in-depth testing. They run thermal imaging tests and sweat tests to ensure their mattresses sleep cool. Further they run thorough stress tests where they run heavy rollers across the mattress and dump heavy loads to simulate over a decade of use. Third, Casper employs fine quality, premium foams. They do not use fillers like some of the competition. Sleepers can count on the foams in the Casper mattress feeling like new for the entire length of the 10 year warranty. Last, Casper has incredibly designed products. For instance, the custom designed cover is a high quality polyester/polypropylene blend that is hand-sewn, stretchy, and specifically designed to sleep cool. Moreover, Casper now features Zoned Support™. In Casper’s own words, Zoned Support is an innovative foam framework that contours specifically to each area of the body for incredible comfort, ideal anatomical support, and focused spinal alignment. Casper stands by its quality and durability with its 10-year warranty. If the mattress does not stand up for a full decade, Casper will repair or replace it.||High quality. Fairly long life expectancy of 5-10 years. Elegant mattress, beautiful design, high quality. Beautiful, well-designed, extremely soft cover.|
|5||Sleep Cool?||Very cool! The Casper mattress has two main fantastic features that keep a sleeper from overheating. The first is the hand-sewn, high quality polyester/polypropylene blend cover. It is stretchy, breathable, and specifically designed to keep the sleeper cool. The second awesome cooling feature is the breathable open-cell foam in the comfort layer. This open-cell foam has tiny pores that promote great airflow and dissipate heat. This foam offsets the traditionally warm memory foam directly beneath it.||Heat retention rarely reported. 2-inch layer of Avena foam keeps mattress cool with great airflow. Breathable and also hypoallergenic.|
|6||Warranty?||The Casper mattress has a 10 year full-replacement, limited warranty that is honored by the Company. They will either repair or replace any defect including any issue causing the mattress an indent greater than one inch.||10 year full-replacement, limited warranty that is honored by company. Low risk and better than average compared to other foam beds.|
|7||Return Policy?||The return policy on the Casper mattress is 100 day, no-fee, no-risk, full-money-back. If returning the mattress, no preparation is necessary.||100 day, no-fee, no-risk, full-money-back trial (30 day for Amazon). If returning mattress, no preparation is necessary (unless ordered through Amazon).|
|8||Customer Service?||Exceptional customer service. Casper emphasizes customer service on their website and it has paid off. Customers do feel like they are treated well. Casper’s customer service team, or snooze specialists, are available seven days a week to make sure all questions are answered and each sleeper has an Awesome Night Sleep.||Excellent customer service.|
|9||Good Reputation?||Casper has a fabulous reputation for being innovative. They have received this reputation due to their over 40 R&D professionals, 50 patents, state-of-the-art laboratory facility, in-depth testing, continuous improvement, premium foams, custom designed cover, and new Zoned Support™ foam layer. They also have a great reputation for giving back. Casper pays employees up to three days yearly to volunteer. The Company also has donated pillows, mattresses, and money for local and national relief efforts. Additionally, Casper is known for having a world renowned mattress. In addition to having tremendous products, the Company does incredibly well at marketing. So well, that due to their awesome products and unbelievable marketing machine, they are America’s #1 Rated Mattress Brand. Pretty remarkable for a company that just started in 2014. Casper has a BBB rating of “A+.”||Manufactured in the USA. Began in 2014. Great reputation. High satisfaction rating and socially good. Essentially accurate claims and do disclose specifications. BBB rating of “B.”|
|10||Socially Good?||Casper is socially good because they give back to the community, are environmentally friendly, and have safe products. First, Casper pays employees up to three days yearly to volunteer. The Company also has donated pillows, mattresses, and money for local and national relief efforts. Next, all of Casper’s foams are CertiPUR-US Certified. They are free of harmful, ozone-depleting chemicals and emissions. Thus there is never any off-gassing of toxins. Lastly, Casper is safety conscious. Rather than using flame retardant chemicals, the Casper mattress has a proprietary woven silica sock under the cover that will smother flames. Moreover, Casper takes being socially good very seriously. In fact, two year ago they introduced key performance indicators (KPI) that focus on social and environmental focused performance.||Donate 1 mattress for every 10 they sell, donate to local communities (money and volunteering), and plant one tree for every mattress sold. Keep paper / materials to a minimum. CertiPUR-US Certified (No Off-Gassing of Toxins).|
|11||Motion Transfer / No Sinkage?||The Casper mattress has done well in striking a good balance between motion isolation and ample bounce. While there is some bounce to this mattress, there is very little motion transfer. Consequently, when one person moves on the bed, the other is not disturbed most of the time. Concerning sinkage, sleepers will not get stuck in this bed. The base support foam ensures that sleepers will not sink too far. With a Casper mattress, sleepers are on top of the mattress and not in it.||Motion transfer is minimal. Movements are absorbed well. Not difficult to move or get up off the bed. No lasting impressions. Sinkage not much – only about 2 inches when on your back.|
|12||Edge Support?||Like many other foam mattresses, the Casper mattress does not have great edge support. With this mattress, there are no special features to improve edge support, like additional foam padding.||Like other foam mattresses, there may not be support on the far edges for sleeping or sitting. More common for larger people and couples.|
|13||Bouncy?||Solid amount of bounce, yet the right amount of sink. The Casper mattress is more bouncy than pure memory foam mattresses, but less springy than pure latex or innerspring mattresses. The comfort foam that is constructed with a latex-like material, is responsible for the bounce.||Bit of a spring – Avena foam provides more bounce than standard memory foam mattresses. Sleepers can easily turn over and move around.|
|14||Noisy?||As is common with most foam mattresses, the Casper mattress makes no noise.||As is common with most foam mattresses, no noise.|
|15||Off-Gassing?||Any unpleasant initial odor is uncommon and minimal. Because Casper uses a more expensive, water-based adhesive, any smell is not toxic. It is just the smell of a new product, like the interior of a new car. Any odor will dissipate in a few hours and be unnoticeable in a week.||Putrid initial odor rarely reported.|
|16||Easy to Handle / Break In / Maintain?||After unboxing the Casper mattress, it will expand quickly and can be slept on right away. Adjusting to the mattress and unlearning bad habits may take your body a few days. Casper asks that you sleep on it 30 days before calling to return it. They also recommend rotating it head to foot every three to six months for even wear. The mattress should never be flipped as the comfort layer should remain on top. Because the mattress only weights 71 pounds, one large person can probably handle it without a problem. Even so, two people moving it is easier. The cover zips off and can be easily spot cleaned.||Lighter than average, but no side handles make it difficult to move. Easy to unbox and start using. Break-in time is about two weeks. No flipping, but should rotate 2-3 times a year. The mattress cover should only be spot cleaned.|
|17||Good for Backs?||The Casper Mattress is good for backs. The Company’s new Zoned Support layer gives the back extra support to stay aligned. In fact, the Zoned Support foam contours to the back, providing it extra firmness for better support. This is especially great for back sleepers. They are getting the support and firmness they treasure. Back sleepers will also like the Casper mattress because it distributes weight evenly, there is little sinkage, and it has excellent spinal alignment.||Adequate support results in good relief of back pain. Because back sleepers prefer medium to firm mattresses, this is a good choice for most back sleepers.|
|18||Good for Side Sleep?||Usually a mattress that is medium to firm might be a little too firm for a side sleeper. This is not the case with the Casper mattress. The Casper mattress has their new Zoned Support feature, that makes it fantastic for side sleepers. Zoned Support™ treats the shoulders differently than the hips. The mattress is firmer under the hips, while softer under the shoulders. This gives a side sleeper awesome pressure relief, deeper comfort, and better spinal alignment.||Yes – relieves pressure points and contours to body. Because side sleepers prefer medium to soft mattresses, this is a good choice for most side sleepers.|
|19||Good for Stomach Sleep?||Even though stomach sleepers traditionally might prefer a firmer mattress, they will like the Casper mattress. Because Casper’s new Zoned Support feature contours specifically to where a stomach sleeper needs it, the shoulders, this sleeper will experience spectacular comfort. In addition to the Zoned Support, the stomach sleeper will also enjoy Casper mattress’s great combination of foam layers for both comfort and support.||Yes – medium to firm mattress supports the spine well. Because stomach sleepers need overall support and medium to firm feel, this is a good choice for most stomach sleepers.|
|20||Good for Larger Sleepers?||Larger people might be hesitant to purchase the Casper mattress. It is thinner (10″ compared to 11″ or 12″), weighs less (71 pounds compared to 80 to 100 pounds), and is less firm (medium firm compared to very firm) than they usually like it. Even so, they will like the Casper mattress because of its new Zoned Support feature. The Zoned Support feature gives larger sleepers pressure relief in areas where they need it most. There is no weight limit on a Casper mattress. It is designed to support all shapes and sizes.||Lack of thickness and foam density along with being light might make this mattress challenging for larger people.|

The Layla Mattress – Cooler | Copper Infused | Double-Sided | Better®| Free Shipping | Made in the USA | 4 Month Trial | Lifetime Warranty
Sleep Cooler with Copper:
We put copper in the mattress because it’s one of the top two most conductive metals known to man, second only to silver (and we were fresh out of silver). Due to its’ amazing conductivity, copper is widely used in industrial and technological applications where the highest temperatures must be tolerated. When copper cells compress inside the Layla Mattress, they form a thermal super highway that sucks up body heat and swiftly carries it away keeping you cool as a cucumber.
Under body weight, copper cells in the memory foam layers of the mattress compress and interact with each other. This interaction between copper cells results in a firming response at deep compression areas where your body sinks in more, like around the shoulders and hips. This firming response is called Variable Support and it’s excellent for all sleeping positions…and it’s a side sleepers’ dream.
