The Mattress in a Box: Why You’ll Love It

July 29, 2020 | Casper Editorial Team

If you’re considering buying a mattress in a box, you’ve probably seen how many choices there are. From the materials to the different warranties and delivery options, it’s easy to become overwhelmed.

Not to worry — we’re here to explain what makes a mattress in a box different from your typical mattress. We’ll also cover the benefits of choosing a mattress in a box and what you can expect when unboxing.

What Is a Mattress in a Box?

A mattress in a box is a mattress that’s compressed in an air-sealed bag and rolled tight so that it can fit into a box that’s easier to maneuver than a traditional mattress. This sort of purchase allows you the flexibility of picking your mattress online and having it easily delivered to your door.
When you receive the mattress, all you’ll need to do is pull it out of its packaging, lay it flat and let it expand. The entire process allows us to cut out the traditional mattress delivery and pass the savings on to you.

The Benefits


The Benefits


The ability to order online allows you to compare prices and features without leaving your home. Once you choose your mattress, simply wait for it to be delivered. Since it arrives in a compact box, you can easily pick it up and move it wherever you need.

Buy Directly from the Brand

The ability to buy your mattress directly from the manufacturer, rather than from a mattress store, gives you benefits like extended warranties and free trial periods. Our customer service team is also available 24/7 to help you if you run into any issues.

Easy Unboxing to Get Sleeping Right Away

To get your mattress ready for sleep, the first step is moving the wrapped box into the room you’d like it to be in. Next, remove the mattress roll from the box and lay it flat.
The final step is to remove the plastic packaging and allow your mattress to expand. That’s it! Your new Casper mattress will be ready to sleep on within minutes.

How to Choose Your Mattress Size

If you’re wondering which size mattress you should buy, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll need to take into account the size of your bedroom, if you’ll be sharing a bed and available space in your bedroom.
You should take your height and width into consideration when choosing a mattress as well. For example, an individual who is shorter than six feet would likely feel comfortable in a twin. Those taller than six feet would feel most comfortable in a California king bed. Our mattress sizes are below to help you decide.
