Introducing the new Casper Essential Mattress

It's finally here, a high-quality mattress with a low price tag.


Fact checked

Over the years, the idea of a “good quality mattress” has always been accompanied by a huge price tag and although many mattress manufacturers have tried to challenge and change this, the lower price tags are still usually enough to make our eyes water.

Enter the Casper Essential Mattress. As the company puts it, they’ve “made an expensive mattress, that’s not expensive”.

What is the Casper Essential Mattress?

The Casper Essential Mattress is a pared-down, simplified version of the original Casper mattress with a pared-down, simplified price tag to match.

The Casper Essential Mattress is made using the same high-quality hybrid foam construction and it offers the same zoned support and is designed with the same open cell, cooling foams as the original Casper mattress.

How is the Casper Essential Mattress different?

Basically, it’s simpler! Instead of the four layers that make up the 24cm-deep Casper original mattress, this new mattress is made up of just two durable and supportive layers and comes to a depth of 18cm. The mattress proves its durability with its upholstery-grade hybrid knit removable and washable cover, proving that you don’t need to break the bank to have a mattress that’s built to last.

The Casper Essential, just like its sister the Casper Original, is perfectly suited to any bed frame that offers flat, strong support, whether it be slats, platform or divan.

The 100-night trial

As with its Original mattress, Casper wants you to love its new release. That’s why the company offers all customers a 100-night free trial of the new mattress. You can sleep on your new Casper Essential Mattress for 100 nights and if you don’t love it, you can return it for a full refund, no questions asked!
