Budget friendly Casper model

Casper Essential highlights

  • The Casper Essential is a streamlined, budget-friendly mattress.
  • It’s made of 3 different foam layers – the first two are borrowed from Casper’s signature model.

What makes it different from other mattresses

  • Since this is a streamlined model, the price point for the Casper Essential is lower than many other foam mattresses.
  • The Casper Essential also arrives in a box that is 30% smaller than other Casper mattresses, making it easier to handle on your own.

What to watch out for

  • Be aware that your Casper Essential may have a mild scent when you unbox it – this is normal and should go away within a few hours.

Casper Essential sizes available

  • Queen: $600
  • King: $725
  • Cal King: $725
  • Twin: $350
  • Twin XL: $400
  • Full: $500

A look inside

The Essential’s top two layers borrow elements from Casper’s signature mattress to blend support, breathability, and responsiveness. The bottom layer provides structure and support.

What Casper Essential customers have to say

  • “I look forward to getting in bed each night. This was a huge upgrade for me. I’ve been sleeping on an ancient Sealy Posture Pedic twin for years. I moved into a great new place and I’m glad I chose the Essential Casper Mattress for my new space. It cradles me just enough and supports me in all the right areas. It’s also firm enough to not feel like a marshmallow. Unlike my old mattress, it won’t develop a divot where I sleep.” – Meghan
  • “I was a little nervous about this purchase because I had never had a memory foam mattress before, but it is very comfortable, lightweight (easy to move around my new apartment while rearranging), and surprisingly plush feeling despite its thin appearance. It seems to have captured the best of all worlds: affordable, lightweight, delivered right to your door, and super comfy.” – Alley
  • “Unboxing was super easy. Impressed at how well it was packed and how quickly it arrived. Bed was for my 4 yr old and she is sleeping great. I’m jealous of her bed, in fact! It’s super soft and comfy.” – Nikki
