A Casper Mattress For Everyone

South by Southwest (SXSW) is a tremendous conference/festival that takes place each year to celebrate innovations and remarkable achievements across a myriad of markets. There you’ll find in-depth speakers from fortune 500 companies and celebrities are no uncommon sight either. It’s hard to put into words just everything this conference encompasses, but it’s safe to say it garners a tremendous amount of attention each year.

Among the many companies and brands fighting for that attention, this year was Casper. Through the intrigue of tech startups, popular new musicians, and inspirational speakers, one might find it hard to believe that a mattress company could make much of a splash. The Casper mattress company extended their innovative and creative spirit into SXSW and people seemed to notice, in a big kind of way!

Casper teamed up with a local hotel in the Austin area to provide rooms that were decked out in their mattresses, slippers, bedding—and all at an outrageously discounted rate. This innovative marketing push was part of a team effort that featured Tesla as well.

In addition, Casper sponsored what was referred to as the Nap Truck which allowed weary SXSW-goers a much-needed area of refuse to recharge themselves and experience Casper products first hand. While this may all sound superfluous in regards to picking out a mattress, it’s actually very illustrative of the company.

Casper knows that in order to survive in such a highly competitive market as mattresses one has to continue to innovate. Their entire business appears to be founded on their ability to innovate better ways to provide quality mattresses and bedding to buyers for much more reasonable pricing.

Casper mattresses are made of several foam layers all with a distinct purpose—comfort foam, memory foam, transition foam, and support foam. Their comfort foam layer is the topmost layer and is made of naturally contouring polyfoam. In older Casper beds, this layer used to be made of natural latex material, but Casper has since moved to a more popular polyfoam.

This layer is supported by a memory foam layer directly beneath, which provides even further contour support. Many regard memory foam as being a bit ‘sinking’ which can cause unwanted heat build-up overnight. By positioning their memory foam beneath the upper latex foam layer, Casper has helped ensure that many of the attractive benefits of memory foam are harnessed while reducing many potential downsides.

Beneath the memory foam resides a contouring and weight-distributing layer of polyurethane foam. This material offers an excellent experience, and many newer mattresses are made entirely from this material. It provides a great amount of flexibility, yet also allows weight to be distributed fairly evenly.

Last but not least, Casper offers an extra-thick bottom layer of support foam. This material is seemingly built more for performance and flexibility than comfort, which a primary purpose of supporting added weight. With the inclusion of such high-performance and lavishly-felt layers on top, Casper is able to help take out some of the cost of their mattresses while seemingly not affecting comfort or flexibility.

Where to Buy Casper Mattresses

Casper has built their business on direct-to-consumer sales taking place online. You order a Casper mattress and it ships for free to your house directly in a manageably-sized cardboard box. Their 100-night guarantee means that if you decide you don’t like your new Casper mattress—they’ll take it back free of charge. Casper will send a local courier to your house to pick up the mattress and donate it to a local charity if possible, or otherwise, it will be recycled. You won’t be charged any additional shipping fees.

Casper mattresses are available for purchase directly from their website, but they aren’t readily found in many local stores. Casper used to maintain public showrooms in New York or Los Angeles, but those locations have since been closed. This was likely in preparation for their recently announced partnership with West Elm to feature Casper Mattresses in all 70+ West Elm Stores!

To find a West Elm store near you, you can check out their official store locator page. Casper mattresses are also available for purchase through Amazon, where they have recently been featured as a brand on Amazon’s new Launchpad category—to showcase exciting new brands offering innovative products. Below, you can see the listing of their more popular sizes:

Final Considerations

Casper is a remarkable company that is continually innovating remarkable mattresses. Their unique approach to offering buyers low-cost, high-quality mattresses shipped directly to their homes has made a lot of mattress stores really mad. Gone are the days of paying an extra 30-50% just so the local guy can play middle man.

Casper goes even further with their 100-night guarantee to offer buyers a nearly unparalleled assurance. Casper’s return policy that allows local couriers to donate returns to local charities is a mark of a socially conscious and responsible brand. Casper truly is one of the best mattress brands on the market, and if you are shopping for flexibility and comfort without draining your bank account, Casper may just be the brand for you!
