Universal firmness mattress for the average sleeper
- Casper is one of the early market leaders in the foam mattress space and offers a good universal mattress for the average sleeper.
- 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 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.

What to watch out for
- Be aware that your Casper mattress may have a mild scent when you unbox it – this is normal and should go away within a few hours.
- A common complaint from customers who are unsatisfied with their Casper mattress is that it is firmer than they expected. Firmness is a personal preference so this might be what you like in a mattress, but we did want to call that out.

What Casper customers have to say
- “My wife and I both love the bed. I usually prefer a much firmer mattress and my wife prefers a soft mattress, yet we’re both satisfied. The bed was easy to unpack and within minutes was ready for sleeping. Definitely the best value in mattresses!” – Sam K.
- “We love our new Casper mattress. We had a top of the line memory foam mattress that my wife loved because of its cocooning effect and I hated it because it made me too warm and I sunk into it too far so I couldn’t roll over. We are both happy with the firmer Casper mattress. It is a great compromise for us.” – Mike W.
- “I’ve owned quite a few different mattresses but the Casper has easily become my favorite. It’s a perfect nights sleep, a great balance of firm and soft. And while the mattress is all I could hope for, the customer service team really took it to over the top. Communication throughout the delivery was prompt, thoughtful and helpful. When my mattress was delayed I was overnighted an air mattress to hold me over.” – Nikki G.

The finer print
- Delivery: The Casper ships free and should arrive at your doorstep within 2-7 business days of ordering. Same-day white glove delivery service is also available in select cities.
- Setup: The Casper mattress comes compressed, rolled and boxed. You will simply unbox the mattress, unroll it on your foundation, and wait for it to expand.
- Foundation: The Casper mattress can work with all standard foundations. As with all foam beds, you want as much direct support under the mattress as possible. A wooden slatted or platform bed offers the most support.
- Return policy: If you decide the Casper is not for you within the 100-day trial period, Casper will remove the mattress from your home and donate it to a local charity at no cost.
- Warranty: The Casper mattress comes with a 10-year limited warranty offer. You can read more about what’s covered under the warranty policy here.
- Cleaning: If you have to wash your cover, machine washing it is not recommended as the cover may shrink. Instead, unzip and remove the cover and gently dab and spot clean with a mild detergent. Mattress protectors can add even more protection, but keep in mind that the covers may reduce breathability.
- Made in the USA.
- All the foams in Casper mattresses are CertiPUR-US® certified.
- You can actually see and feel the Casper mattress for yourself in select Target If you like what you see, you can make your purchase right there.
