Choosing the right mattress is an important investment in your quality of sleep. If you’re torn between a Saatva or Casper mattress, we’re here to help.

Saatva mattresses are innerspring coil-on-coil mattresses that are made out of eco-responsible materials. They offer a competitive price compared to most retailers. Casper is a popular bed-in-a-box mattress brand that sells memory foam mattresses designed in America. Both Saatva and Casper are sold online-only and offer free delivery with some setup and removal.

Construction comparison

Materials

Saatva layers: Saatva mattresses are made with a unique coil-on-coil construction, creating a strong steel support base wrapped in a coil system that responds to your body weight. This coil-on-coil technology is paired with a lush euro pillow top for added comfort.

Casper layers: Casper’s namesake mattress is made with four layers of premium foam to create the perfect balance of support, breathability, comfort and alignment. Casper mattresses are also carefully constructed to be softer under the shoulders and firmer under your hips and core for alignment support.

Comfort

Saatva mattress firmness: Saatva mattresses are available in three comfort levels: plush soft, luxury firm and Saatva firm. Plush soft is best for sleepers who like to feel hugged by their mattress. Saatva’s luxury firm mattress is created to provide balanced softness and support for spinal alignment. The Saatva firm mattress is for sleepers who want extra support without stiffness.

Casper mattress firmness: Casper’s memory foam mattresses come in three styles: the Essential, the Casper and the Wave. The Essential is 8 Inches thick and made with three layers of foam for comfort, breathability and bounce. The Casper is 10 inches thick and made with five layers of foam and zone-specific support for proper spinal alignment. The Wave is 11.5 inches thick and made with hyper-targeted support contoured for pressure relief and spinal alignment.

Mattress pricing comparison

Saatva price: Saatva’s prices vary by size and height, ranging from $599 for a twin to $1,399 for a king. Their most popular mattress, the Saatva Luxury Firm queen, costs $1099. Saatva financing is available.

Casper price: The price of Casper’s mattresses also varies by size, ranging from $350 for a twin to $2,395 for a California king. Casper financing is available.

Bottom line: Saatva or Casper?

Both the Saatva and Casper are great for different reasons. You might want an innerspring mattress from Saatva if you sleep on your back, get hot when you sleep or don’t like to sink into the bed too much. You’ll want a memory foam mattress from Casper if you sleep on your side or are concerned about waking your partner with motion transfer.

The Saatva mattress is best for sleepers who want a more traditional coil mattress with a soft pillow top. The coil-on-coil technology applies consistent support throughout the body, which is best for those who like to sleep on their back.

The Casper mattress is best for those who like a more malleable, contoured support system with little-to-no movement transfer. This is a great mattress for side sleepers, as the mattress will form to your body’s curves. It’s also ideal for those with partners who may roll around in their sleep.
