You will see that Nectar tends to have lower prices across the board than Casper. Note that these are the brand’s standard prices without considering sales, promotions, or exclusive Mattress Advisor discounts.
Casper is made up of four foam blend layers to offer breathability, pressure relief, and a springy yet contouring surface.
The Nectar has four layers of premium that promote air circulation and offer support and appropriate weight distribution, plus a cooling cover.

Ultimately, the decision comes down to personal mattress. What works best for one sleeper may be a nightmare for another – so we can’t make the decision for you.
But we can lay out the facts. Comparing Casper vs. Nectar you can see that Nectar is typically the more affordable option, but overall the Casper scored better in our testing – particularly on spine alignment and responsiveness.
We would recommend the Casper for people who tend to shift positions throughout the night or often wake up with aches and pain. The Casper will offer you a ton of support and respond quickly to your movements throughout the night. But if you’re looking to save a little money and still get a great value mattress, the Nectar is an awesome deal (especially with their lifetime warranty and 365 day trial period).
