Key Similarities

  • Both are all-foam mattresses that gently hug the body for a distinct memory foam experience. 
  • Both mattresses are excellent for side sleepers, each earning a spot in our top beds for side sleepers
  • Both mattresses scored highly in our test for spine alignment, and may provide relief for those with back pain. 
  • Both come with a sleep trial and free returns so you can feel comfortable buying an online mattress

Key Differences

  • The Loom & Leaf comes in two firmness levels while Casper only comes in one. As such, the Loom & Leaf works for a wider range of sleepers. 
  • Casper is more affordable, making it the better budget-friendly mattress. 
  • The Loom & Leaf offers superior support for sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds.  
  • Casper is better for couples as demonstrated by its superior scores in our motion isolation, responsiveness, and edge support tests. 
  • The Loom & Leaf is slightly cooler than the Casper, so if you sleep hot and sweaty, go with the Loom & Leaf.
  • It’s easier to move around on the Capser as the Loom and Leaf hugs the body more deeply.

Casper Mattress Review Highlights

  • Casper’s is one of the best mattresses we’ve tested for both spine alignment and pressure relief, and a bed that works for every sleeping position.  
  • Casper is an excellent mattress for couples. Our sleep testers could barely feel when their partner switched positions.. 
  • The Casper mattress is an incredible value. It’s one of the highest scoring memory foam mattresses that we’ve tested and one of the most affordable. If you’re looking for the even more bang-for-your-buck, consider the Casper Element mattress.
  • The Casper original comes in a hybrid version, Wave Hybrid, and Nova Hybrid for those who prefer a bit of the innerspring bouncy feel.
Loom & Leaf mattress

Loom & Leaf Mattress Review Highlights

  • The deeply-hugging high-density memory foam feel is often compared to more expensive luxury mattress brands like Tempur-Pedic
  • With a thick profile and 2 firmness options, relaxed firm or firm, the Loom & Leaf is well-suited for every sleeping position and body weight. In fact, it’s one of our favorite mattresses for heavy people. The relaxed firm measures a 6 on the 1-10 firmness scale and the firm an 8. 
  • For a mattress with a traditional memory foam feel—one where you feel like you’re sleeping “in” rather than “on” the surface—the Loom & Leaf sleeps cool.
  • Every Saatva mattress comes with free new mattress setup and old mattress removal, a service called White Glove Delivery.

Compare the Inside Construction

Let’s take a look at the construction of each mattress and how it influences the feel and performance. 

The Casper mattress is a medium-firm memory foam mattress whose firmness falls at a 6 on the 1-10 firmness scale. The feel is one of plush comfort along the mattress surface with sufficient support to limit sinkage at the hips.

This mattress excels at supporting every sleeping position thanks to its zoned transition foam. Softer foam along the top and bottom third of the mattress and firmer foam along the middle promote optimal body alignment. Side sleepers are met with the plush give they need at the shoulders, stomach sleepers enjoy added trunk support, and back sleepers do well with the balanced feel from head-to-toe. 

While the Casper’s construction makes it work for most sleepers, its minimal comfort layers don’t deliver the cushion needed for those who weigh more than 230 pounds.

The Loom & Leaf is a luxury memory foam mattress that comes in two firmness levels. The relaxed firm is a medium-firm mattress, falling at a 6 on the 1-10 firmness scale. The firm is aptly named, rating at a firm 8 out of 10. The relaxed firm is best for side sleepers and back sleepers who enjoy ample cushion, while the firm is great for stomach sleepers and back sleepers who prefer a firmer feel. 

Both comfort layers are made from high-density memory foam that combine to create the traditional memory foam cradling feel. Together, these layers measure 4.5”, making the Loom & Leaf one of the best memory foam mattresses for heavy sleepers. However, lightweight side sleepers are likely to find even the relaxed-firm option too firm.

Inside Casper Original

Inside The Casper Mattress

  • Eco-friendly mattress cover: The Casper cover is made from recycled plastic bottles, upcycled cotton, and other materials. The final feel is soft, stretchy, and resilient. 
  • Comfort layer: The top layer is made from Casper’s perforated Airscape polyfoam. This low-density foam is ultra-plush, giving an almost pillowtop-like feel. 
  • Zoned memory foam: A 3-zoned memory foam makes up the second layer of the Casper. It’s to thank for the targeted pressure relief and support that make the Casper a solid mattress for every sleep position.
  • Support foam: Casper’s final layer is a sturdy base foam whose high-density construction adds durability and edge support.

Inside the Loom & Leaf Mattress

  • Organic cotton cover: The quilted cotton cover is naturally breathable and soft. 
  • Gel memory foam layer: Deeply crading memory foam infused with gel both cushions the body and limits heat retention
  • Premium memory foam: Slow-response memory foam conforms closely to the body’s curves. This high-density foam is resistant to sagging and impressively durable.
  • Two-layer support system: Two layers of foam comprise the support system. Each is a high-density polyfoam that’s durable and responsive.

Final Breakdown: Which is the Best Mattress?

There is no one mattress that’s perfect for everybody. Instead, the right fit is based on your habits, preferences, and body shape. As such, even though the Casper performed better in most categories during our testing, the Loom & Leaf is still a better option for certain sleepers.

We recommend the Loom & Leaf for sleepers who love the deep hugging feel of traditional memory foam. Its feel is much like that of mattresses that cost well over two times as much as the Loom & Leaf. Its generous comfort layers make it one of the best all-foam beds for sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds. And with two firmness levels, the Loom & Leaf accommodates the needs of most sleepers. 

The original Casper mattress is one of the most popular bed-in-a-box mattresses, and for good reason. Its high-quality construction, impressive performance during our testing, and competitive price point make it an incredible value. With zoned support and a plush comfort layer, it works well for light-to-average-weight side, back, and stomach sleepers. It’s also one of the best beds that we’ve tested for couples, thanks to its ease-of-movement, motion dampening abilities, and sturdy edges. 

Both Casper and Loom & Leaf beds come with free shipping and returns during their respective trial periods. What this means is that you can try out either of these beds with zero financial risk.
