If you like the Casper Wave mattress, the Casper Wave Hybrid takes it to the next level. The Wave Hybrid is a step above with hybrid technology for additional responsiveness, support, and pressure relief. Mixing the comfort of memory foam and the support and durability of a pocket-coil system, the Casper Wave Hybrid is a top-tier Casper mattress. Read on for our in-depth review to see why we love and why we think you will too.

Casper Wave Hybrid Mattress Highlights

  • The Casper Wave Hybrid mattress is the end result of five years of collecting customer feedback on what sleepers want in a mattress. The final product, the Wave Hybrid, combines the contour of memory foam, buoyancy of latex and responsiveness of pocket coils—the trifecta of restful sleep.
  • The Wave Hybrid takes the original Casper Wave mattress one step up with the addition of a pocket-coil system that improves responsiveness, support, motion isolation, and pressure relief. Striking the perfect balance between the contour of memory foam and the “spring” of pocket coils, this mattress offers the best of both worlds when it comes to support and comfort.
  • The Wave Hybrid earned outstanding scores in responsiveness, motion transfer and spine alignment while in our mattress lab. In fact, it’s a runner up for one of the best hybrid mattresses!
  • Casper offers free in-home delivery and set-up with the purchase of the Wave Hybrid mattress.

Casper Wave Hybrid Mattress Review

The Casper Wave Hybrid mattress takes Casper’s great design to the next level. Its hybrid technology is constructed to provide superior responsiveness to your body movements and pain relief at the pressure points. Topped with four foam layers, the Casper Wave Hybrid will keep you comfortable for years to come.

Take a deeper look at our review of the Casper Wave Hybrid mattress to see how it performed in our testing and help you decide if it’s right for you.

Testing Highlights

We do a thorough testing of each mattress that comes in our lab. If we walked you through every step, you’d be reading for an hour! So to save you some time and to make it easy for you to decide if the Casper Wave Hybrid is the right mattress for you, we’ll just go over the highlights. You can learn more about our testing process here to give some color to the numbers you saw above in our testing scores chart.

Rock Solid Motion Transfer

Do you sleep with a partner, or even a pet? If so, your mattress’s ability to control motion transfer is key to your sleep. A mattress that’s not-so-great at controlling motion will lead you to wake up every time your sleeping partner tosses, turns, or gets up for a late-night bathroom run. But with the Casper Wave Hybrid, you’ll be able to sleep soundly all night long. One of the ways we test this is with our wine test. Take a look at the video below to see how still the wine stays when Amanda moves around on the bed.

Stellar Spine Alignment

Keeping your spine in a straight line is critical to a good night’s sleep. With the combination of comforting foam and supportive coils, the Casper Wave Hybrid mattress does an excellent job of keeping your spine right in line. Just take a look below at how Matt’s body was supported during testing.

Top-Notch Responsiveness

Casper isn’t kidding when they say this is their most advanced model ever. The Wave Hybrid offers hyper-targeted support and top-of-the-line responsiveness to your body’s motions. We have our testers turn to different sleeping positions to see how quickly the mattress can respond to your movements so you can get comfortable, and with the Wave Hybrid they were truly impressed!

This is due to the careful craftsmanship in the construction of this Casper mattress. The combination of latex and memory foam, targeted gel pods, and resilient springs makes for a bed that’s ready to respond to your movements all night to keep you sleeping comfortably.

Customer Reviews on the Casper Wave Hybrid

Now you know how the Casper Wave Hybrid performed in our lab, but what about in your home? Take a look at what actual customers have said about their experience with the Casper Wave Hybrid.

  • From a Customer with Back Pain: “I have spent so much money on mattresses in the last 6 years! Last year I had two total hip replacements and with the mattress before the Wave, I would step out of bed and have lower back pain until my back woke up by walking around. WITH THE WAVE, I step out of bed and have NO lower back pain. My husband says he is definitely sleeping better. I would recommend the Wave to everyone. I will probably order The original Casper for guest bedrooms soon.” – Mia
  • From an Ex-Casper Original Sleeper: “As a full-time farm manager and worker I need good sleep. I started on a regular Casper and was enticed to upgrade to Wave due to growing shoulder and lower back strain. Since sleeping on Wave all of that pain has slowly melted away. I literally get excited every day to crash on it. Every time you fall, it feels as new and fresh as when I first unpacked it. The name is accurate. I feel an incredibly delicate wave supporting my soft stretch of body between my shoulder and hips. It cradles and relieves pressure all at the same time. Worth every penny. Truly treat yourself.” – Matt
  • From a Happy Couple: “Hard to review as soon as I lay down I basically pass out. Absolutely the best decision I made was buying the wave. Now I know what sleeping on a cloud means. Perfect price for what you get! My husband is 6’8” so we bought the Cali king. He fits perfectly on it and loves the support of it for his 350lb frame. We will be buying again in the future for our guest bedroom and shore house.” – Katie
  • From a Sound Sleeper: “I have been sleeping much better since I purchased my Wave mattress. It is firmer than my previous mattress especially on the edges. I suffer from pain in both shoulders and in my right hip and this pain has subsided since I bought the mattress. I am sleeping longer without interruption. For me, purchasing this mattress was a good move.” – Richard

A Look Inside the Casper Wave Hybrid Mattress

The Wave Hybrid is the result of five years of data collection from customers. The final product is a hybrid mattress made if five premium layers — four foam and a pocket-coil core — wrapped in a moisture-wicking wool cover that prevents humidity from getting trapped in the layers.

Inside Casper Wave Hybrid
  • 1.0” Comfort Foam: The top layer of the Casper Wave Hybrid is designed to offer responsive comfort that makes you look forward to climbing into bed each night.
  • 1.5” Breathable Latex Foam: The next layer is made of latex foam which has a more buoyant feel than traditional memory foam. Latex is a naturally breathable material so this layer helps transfer heat away from the body to regulate body temperature.
  • 1.5” Pressure Relieving Memory Foam: Following the latex foam is a memory foam layer that’s designed to aid in pressure relief by cradling your joints, particularly the hips and shoulders.
  • 1.5” High Resiliency Foam: The final foam layer is a highly durable and resilient foam made with gel pods for targeted support.
  • 7.0” Foundation of Durable, Pocket-Coil Spring System: The final layer of the Wave Hybrid mattress is a pocket-coil spring system designed to support, respond and isolate motion for its sleepers.

What Makes the Casper Wave Hybrid Different?

The team at Casper Labs worked on perfecting the Wave Hybrid for five years. See what makes their final product stand out from the crowd.

Responsive Layers

The five layers of the Wave Hybrid work in tandem to provide the responsive surface sleepers need to get comfortable enough to fall asleep. The memory foam layers of the Wave Hybrid mattress work in tandem with the pocket coil system to provide unmatched responsiveness to the movements of its sleepers so they have the most restful, undisturbed, comfortable sleep possible.

Targeted Support

All body parts are not created equal. Some areas of the body need more support than others. That’s why the high resiliency foam layer that you’ll find in the Wave Hybrid mattress includes gel pods that offer targeted support to different regions of the body. This means you’ll find a softer firmness under the shoulders to help cradle pressure points and a firmer surface under the hips to keep your spine in alignment.

We ranked Casper Wave Hybrid the best mattress for back pain.

Free In-Home Set Up

While most every online mattress company offers free delivery, it’s not every day they provide free set up of your new mattress too. If you decide the Wave Hybrid mattress is the bed for you, Casper offers this highly convenient service to you free of charge.

How the Wave Hybrid Mattress Supports Different Sleeping Positions

Side Sleepers

The Wave Hybrid is a wonderful mattress choice for side sleepers. While the pressure relieving abilities of a mattress is important for all sleepers, they are particularly important for side sleepers. That’s because the bulk of our weight falls on the hips and shoulders when we are laying on our side. Without a proper sleep surface, this can put stress on the joints. The Wave Hybrid offers the pressure point relief side sleepers need, as well as, a responsive surface that cradles the curves of the hips and shoulders.

Back Sleepers

When shopping for a mattress, back sleepers need a mattress that offers support and contour in equal measure, to keep your spine in a neutral position. The support is what holds up your spine and neck, while the contour is what allows your bum and other curvy parts to rest peacefully. The Wave Hybrid with its responsive foam layers and supportive spring core offers both these qualities to back sleepers.

Stomach Sleepers

Stomach sleepers are the rarest type of sleeper. They need a mattress with a soft, responsive surface to keep pressure off the pelvis, chest, and shoulders that is simultaneously firm and supportive enough to keep their back in alignment rather than arched. The Wave Hybrid has a phenomenally responsive surface that allows the curvatures of the body to be cradled the way stomach sleepers need, but it also contains high resiliency foam and pocket springs that keep the spine elevated rather than sinking.

Casper Wave Hybrid FAQs

What's the difference between the Original Casper Wave and the Casper Wave Hybrid?

The primary difference between the original Casper Wave and the Wave Hybrid is that they are different types of mattresses. The original Wave is all memory-foam, whereas the Wave Hybrid is made of memory foam, latex foam, and pocket coils. This difference in materials and construction impacts all aspects of the mattress, including firmness, comfort, motion transfer, pressure relief, and responsiveness.

What's the difference between the Casper Hybrid mattress and the Casper Wave Hybrid mattress?

The Wave Hybrid is a more expensive model than the Casper Hybrid mattress. Each model is made with different foams and the Wave Hybrid has an additional layer of foam that increases its thickness by one inch.

Does the Wave Hybrid mattress sleep hot?

The Wave Hybrid is designed to sleep cool. The cover of the Wave Hybrid is made of wool which naturally wicks moisture and humidity away from the body. Additionally, it is made with a layer of latex foam which is naturally more breathable than traditional memory foam. The pocket coil system naturally promotes airflow because there is space in between each spring. That being said, the Wave Hybrid is still partially a foam mattress so it may not sleep as cool as an innerspring or 100% latex mattress. How hot you get at night also depends on your personal preferences and body type. If you do find that the Casper mattress sleeps too hot for you, you can always return it within your 100-night risk-free trial period.

Can I try out the Casper Hybrid mattress before I buy it?

You sure can! The Wave Hybrid mattress can be found at a number of retail locations throughout the US. You can even book a trial where you can take a nap on a Casper mattress, talk to a sleep specialist, or just see the mattress for yourself.

Is the Wave Hybrid mattress eco-friendly?

The foams used in the Wave Hybrid mattress are CertiPUR-US­® Certified, meaning they meet some of the most rigorous standards for emissions, content, performance, and durability. Additionally, the latex foam and knit-wool cover used to make the Wave Hybrid are both Oeko-Tex certified.
