Casper vs. Casper Wave Mattress Review

As one of the leading online mattress manufacturers, Casper has expanded its product offerings to three different mattress models: the Casper, the Casper Wave, and the Casper Essential. Here we take a look at the similarities and differences between the Casper and Casper Wave.

Casper is the original and most popular mattress of the three – although it’s still different today than it was when it first launched. Most notably, Casper now comes with a Zoned Support feature designed to provide the right amount of support where your body needs it most.

The Casper Wave is the higher-end (more expensive) model offered by Casper. It’s designed to provide added pressure relief and ergonomic benefits like spine alignment.

Take a look at our side-by-side comparison below to see how these two mattresses differ on things like price, pressure relief, edge support and motion transfer.

Highlights

  • Casper is one of the early market leaders in the foam mattress space and offers a good universal mattress for the average sleeper.
  • Casper has crafted a memory foam mattress that is breathable and promotes airflow, so you won’t get that hot, sinking feeling that you would with traditional memory foams.
  • The Casper team is continually refining its design based on customer feedback and sleep tests; so buying a Casper today doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the same one from a couple years ago. Casper’s latest innovation – Zoned Support – is a new foam system that contours high-pressure areas like your hips, shoulders, and core to provide relief and support where it’s needed most.
  • The Casper Wave is a high-end mattress made by Casper that is designed to relieve pressure and provide proper spine alignment for all sleep positions.
  • The five-layer support system was created to mirror the natural shape of your body at 36 specific points for deeper, more restorative sleep.
