Casper Original Hybrid Mattress Review
As with all hybrid mattresses, one of the benefits of the Casper Original Hybrid mattress is that the spring layer adds breathability and helps promote airflow, so heat isn’t trapped like it is with memory foam-only mattresses. The top foam layer of this mattress also has perforations – small holes that add breathability. These two cooling features make this mattress ideal for hot sleepers or anyone who lives in a warm climate.
Casper does not offer a firmness rating for its mattresses, but professional reviewers say it feels like a medium. The pressure-reducing zoned support middle layer is softer at the shoulders and firmer at the hips, making it a good combination of giving and support. The mattress is a good choice for side sleepers, combination sleepers and those who like a soft feel, but it may be too plush for back and stomach sleepers.
The Casper Original Hybrid is 11 inches thick and consists of three main layers: two foam layers and a spring base layer that provides additional stability to prevent sinking. The base layer features coils individually wrapped in fabric to inhibit motion transfer and a foam perimeter to provide additional edge support, an advantage for those who tend to be drawn to the edge of the bed at night. The 2-inch middle layer provides zoned support, offering some support for pressure points such as the shoulders and proper support for the back and hips, while the 2-inch top layer is perforated to enhance airflow.
Casper Original Foam Mattress Review
The top layer of the mattress is perforated memory foam and the middle is zoned memory foam that is divided into three different sections. The outer section is softer to take pressure off your shoulders when sleeping on your side, while the middle section is firmer to prevent sinking and provide more support for your hips, lower back and lower back.
The Original Foam Mattress is suitable for several different sleeper types, as well as combination sleepers and couples who sleep in different positions. Professional reviewers say that unlike other all-foam mattresses, it responds well and adapts quickly to movement, which is important for people who tend to switch positions throughout the night.
Because the Casper Original foam mattress is all-foam, it can absorb heat. Although it has perforations in the top layer to help promote airflow and increase breathability compared to other memory foam mattresses, professional reviewers say it still sleeps a little hot. If you tend to overheat at night, you may sleep better on a Casper Original hybrid mattress. Because they have springs that allow more airflow, hybrid mattresses typically sleep cooler than memory foam-only options.
The all-foam construction does provide better motion isolation due to the lack of elastic springs. This makes this mattress a good choice for couples who don’t want to be awakened by their partner’s movements.

The company has several proprietary technologies, including perforated AirScape foam that helps air flow and HeatDelete Bands that absorb heat from the body. all Casper beds, except the Element, feature zones that provide firmer support in the shoulders and hips where you need it.

Casper mattresses can be purchased through the manufacturer on casper.com or through online retailers that sell Casper products such as Amazon, Target and Wayfair. To see a Casper mattress in person, you can try a display model at your local mattress store or other mattress retailers that carry the brand, such as Macy’s or Raymour & Flanigan. Be sure to call ahead to see if any Casper monitor models are available.
If there is a Casper Sleep Shop near you, you may also want to check it out. A sleep specialist can work with you to find the right type and model of mattress, and you can even book a 30-minute nap appointment at some locations. If you already know what model you want, you can order from the Sleep Shop and pick it up the same day.

How long does it take for a Casper mattress to expand?
Casper says you can sleep on the mattress right away. After unpacking and setting it up, it takes no extra time to expand before you can sleep on it. Lay it flat and place it on your bed frame. Then, carefully cut open and remove the inner plastic layer.
Does the Casper mattress have an odor?
While we did not notice any particular odor when unboxing the Casper Original mattress, the compressed foam mattress may emit a “new mattress” odor. This is known as venting, and while some people may notice a slight odor, it is not harmful. Casper mattresses are CertiPUR-US certified. This means they are free of formaldehyde, ozone depleters, mercury, lead and other heavy metals. The certification also requires that the foam have low VOC emissions to ensure indoor air quality. If you notice an odor that bothers you, Casper recommends that you place your new mattress in a well-ventilated room for several hours to exhaust the air.
Do I need a box spring for my Casper mattress?
Casper mattresses do not require a box spring. Casper does strongly recommend a firm foundation, whether it is a platform bed, slats (less than 4″ apart), adjustable frame or Casper’s foundation bed.
