The Essential Mattress
It's simple really. We made an expensive mattress, that’s not expensive.
What makes the Essential different?
A firm bottom layer, a supportive middle layer, and a soft top layer.
Upholstery-grade cover zips off for easy upkeep.
3 layers of premium foam
Combination of support, breathability, and comfort
Support, breathability, and comfort –
in just three durable layers.
It’s built to last — night after night.
The zip-off cover is made with an upholstery-grade hybrid knit that’s designed to stand up to years of use. Plus, the rich charcoal color hides spills or splotches. Hello, breakfast in bed.

Frequently asked questions
- What setup do you recommend for the Casper Essential?
The Casper Essential needs a setup with plenty of direct support. For optimal support, we recommend using our Casper foundation and the metal frame. This mattress can also be used with a slatted foundation (with slats less than 4" apart) and metal frame, a platform bed, or an adjustable base.
- What does the Casper Essential feel like?
When we designed the Casper Essential, we knew we had to deliver lasting comfort at an unbeatable price. It borrows elements from our signature mattress to promise coolness and support in a more cost-efficient design.
- How does the 100 night trial work?
At Casper, we want to give you the best trial experience possible. That’s why you can try all our products in the comfort of your own home, risk-free, for 100 nights. If they aren’t working out, you can return them for a full refund. Our 100 night trial serves as our return policy, and it starts from the night your product is delivered.
