Casper Vs Leesa | Mattress Comparison

Casper Vs Leesa | Mattress Comparison

Casper was one of the online companies that helped pave the way for the online market. In 2014-2017 they continued to grow. They have had several rounds of fund raising and even have some celebs involved. They have a universal feel many people will like!

Leesa is one of the most sought after online brands thus far in the Uk and USA. Leesa is an all foam mattress. Leesa uses Avena foam on the top layer which is convoluted and aerated, both aid in cooling. Avena has a similar feel as latex. Next they use a layer of memory foam for additional support and body conformance. They have built a quality mattress with a good medium feel that sleeps well in all sleeping positions.

Below is our full assesment of each brand. We have covered how they feel, perform and we will provide our recommendation on which brandyou might want to consider.

You Will Like

Casper

  • Like to sleep cool – Foam mattresses can sleep warm. However, the design of the Casper with latex on top and memory foam on bottom helps it disperse heat efficiently. I did not experience excessive heat at all.
  • Sleep in multiple positions – This mattress is a good medium feel with good body conformance. Sleeping on your side, back or stomach Casper will conform to your body very well.
  • Like the combo of bounce and body conformance – With the latex layer on top Casper maintains good bounce which makes it easier to adjust positions and not feel stuck.
  • Want good bounce paired with body conformance & pressure relief – The performance poly foam and memory foam layer perform very well together to have a great balance of bounce/response and body conformance with pressure relief.

Leesa

  • Want a good value – Leesa comes in at a competitive price when compared to many big furniture store brands.
  • Like to sleep cool – Foam mattresses can sleep warm. Leesa uses a convoluted and aerated layer of Avena foam on top which aids in cooler sleep.I did not experience excessive heat at all. Kayla is typically always cold so heat was not an issue for her either.
  • Want proof of product – Leesa has thousands of 5 star reviews.
  • Are looking for a mattress to fit all sleeping positions – Leesa is a good medium feel and it performed well for all of our sleeping position tests.
  • Want good bounce paired with body conformance & pressure relief – The Avena foam and memory foam layer perform very well together to have a great balance of bounce/response and body conformance with pressure relief.
  • Value a company who gives back – Almost all of the companies online do some philanthropy, Leesa seems to take it a step further. They have programs with 3 separate initiatives. They donate mattresses, plant trees and they support their local community.

You Might Not Like

Casper

  • Are 280lbs or more – I would recommend something different if you are a heavier sleeper.
  • Do a lot of activities sitting on the edge of the bed – Sitting on the edge the mattress sinks down about average for a foam bed. If a very sturdy sitting edge is important to you you may want to consider something with foam encased edges or a border wire (coiled/spring mattress primarily). Laying on the edge was not an issue however, you still have the entire sleep surface usable. (see video for demo)
  • Want a innerspring mattress – It can take time to get used to a foam mattress, if you already know you don’t like all foam mattresses you should stick with a coiled mattress. The Casper is a comfortable mattress but it won’t probably transform you from a spring fan to a foam fan.

Leesa

  • Want a firm mattress – Leesa is a medium-medium soft feel. If you prefer an extra firm mattress you will want to look elsewhere.
  • Don’t like foam mattresses – If you are a spring mattress lover you may want to consider something with coils.
  • Are a stomach only sleeper – Although Leesa performed well for us in all sleeping positions if you are a stomach only sleeper you may want to consider something a tad firmer.
  • Are 280lbs or more – I would recommend something different if you are a heavier sleeper.

Construction

Casper

  • 3rd Layer: 1.5″ poly foam
  • 4th Layer: 5″ Foam Core

Leesa

  • Top layer: 2″ of Avena foam. Avena is acts and feels like latex, except tests show that it is more durable. This layer is designed to provide comfort, cooling and body conformance.
  • 2nd layer: 2″ layer of memory foam. This layer provides support, pressure relief, and additional body conformance.
  • Bottom layer Foam Core: This layer is a foundational base for the mattress.

His & Hers Firmness & Feel

My Thoughts (Ross)

Casper

The Casper Mattress is about a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale. With the top latex layers fast response it is easy to adjust sleeping positions.

Casper has good body conformance and is easy to adjust positions on with the responsive layer being on top it has good bounce. The overall feel is universal to all sleeping positions and will suit most people.

Leesa

The Leesa Mattress impressed me for the following reasons.

A.) The overall feel of Leesa impressed me.

B.) They are one of a couple 10″ mattresses that uses 4″ of premium foams on top. Most are 3-3.5″. This makes the mattress conform to your body better and also makes it have fantastic pressure relief.

C.) It worked well in all sleeping positions.

D.) The mattress slept cool, had good motion reduction and a good combo of bounce with pressure relief.

Her Thoughts (Kayla)

Casper

The Casper performed well for me. I am also lighter at 125lbs. The top poly layer supports your lower back very well and bounces back quickly if you adjust positions. I’m always worried about motion transfer since Ross moves around a lot. Like most foam beds the Casper has very little motion transfer. Like Ross said the Ghostbed on paper is more mattress for less money but you still might like the feel of Casper better.

Leesa

I really liked how the Leesa mattress conformed even being lighter in weight. It was a bit softer which I like. For side sleeping it was very good for me as well. Overall Leesa is my favorite mattress we have reviewed so far. The Avena foam was very responsive and had good bounce. The motion reduction properties were very good too. Ross likes to move around a lot so that was helpful for me!

Temperature

Casper

The Casper had no problems with sleeping hot. The design with 1.5″ of poly over the memory foam helps this mattress with heat dispersion.

Leesa

Avena foam has the same cooling properties as latex. In addition, Leesa uses a convoluted and aerated Avena layer on top. It circulates air easily. The memory foam layer also draws heat from the top layer. It never got excessively hot for us.

Gassing:

Casper

These mattresses are made in the USA so they are not roll packed for very long. I think sometimes people confuse this and think that any “smell” is “hazardous”. No matter which mattress you choose you will have some element of a “new mattress smell”.

This is normal and latex has its own smell too, sometimes stronger than memory foam, this will dissipate within a day or two.

Adjustable Base Performance:

Both the Casper & Leesa will work great on an adjustable base.

Overall Summary

Overall, I was impressed by the Leesa Mattress and the company. I spoke with the owner as he was coming back from London and had just donated a bunch of mattresses to a community in need. He really believes in giving back more and more as the company grows. The feel, support and pressure relief of the Leesa was great. I recommend giving it a try for sure.

The Casper has a great universal feel most people will like. With a good combo of bounce, support & pressure relief. They have a huge following and a lot of good reviews so people that have bought it seem to like it for the most part.

Conclusion: Both of these mattresses provide a great universal feel. They both will work good in all positions, neither sleeps hot. They both also have very good customer service and thousands of happy customers. I would say Leesa is a tad softer so it may be better for lighter side sleepers. Both of these are 10″ mattresses as well so if you are 280lbs or more I would consider something thicker. Both of these are good options for anyone looking for a medium all foam mattress.
