I love my Casper pillow. It stays cool at night, and reminds me of dreamy, high-class hotel pillows.
I've been using a simple foam pillow for decades and it's flat and dirty. I've bought and returned a dozen pillows from BB&B, Target, etc., but none have ever been any better than my raggedy old pillow, but it was getting gross and less bouncy so I decided to to try BOTH of the latest pillows I've been hearing on the radio: (1) Casper and (2) My Pillow. Besides just saying which I prefer (pillow selection is a very subjective and personal process so this is just my summary from a total non-pillow expert.) I want to share some of my experiences with both so you choose one or the other (or a totally different brand.) [[SPOILER; For me, Casper wins hands down; read below for more details]] Casper Score 5/5 ) Casper came in a sleek full size box; think Apple packaging, It was ready to use immediately after opening the box, removing the plastic cover, and adding my own pillowcase. There were no weird chemical smells or need to run it through the dryer to "fluff it up." My Pillow Score: 2/5 ) My Pillow came in a shrink-wrapped small box; I was instructed to run it in the dryer to "fluff it up". Straight out of the box it feels like slightly softer shredded tires. After the dryer fluffing it was a lot, well, fluffier but It stank. Bad. For days. It also still never stopped feeling like softened, shredded rubber tires. Casper Score 5/5) Casper's guarantee includes free shipping. Not that I'll need it, but it's nice to know that I had zero risk to try the Casper. My Pillow Score 1/5) Since after fluffing it up the thing is huge and a real pain to get into a reasonable size box. My Pillow did offer to send me a return label for $10 but I think I can squish it into something to send it back more cheaply. Also, it took 4 emails to get an RMA number because the My Pillow rep kept asking questions like "is it too thick or too thin? We can show you how to add or remove fill to make it better. I had to say "I just don't like it" and get the RMA. My Pillow Score 1/5) My wife decided to give it a try as her pillows are old and ratty like mine. She hated it worse than I did and she's way less picky. Casper Score 5/5) My wife loves the Casper and keeps trying to steal it, so I'll be ordering one for her too. Great pillow; thanks!
The ordering process and customer service was great, as with the other Casper products. The pillows are my favorite product so far - they are very comfortable and provide just the right amount of support.
Love the Casper pillow...it is as advertised...
Casper has put the functionality of a down pillow into a memory foam pillow. If the soft, cool nature of a down pillow appeals to you then buy the Capser. If you want and/or need something more firm buy something else.
The Casper pillow is so great that I got rid of all of my other pillows after 1 night on it. The pillows arrived before our new mattress, but both my wife and I agree that just the new pillows have made a huge difference in our bed being more comfortable. The pillow cover is squishy and the pillow itself provides support. I've never seen one like this before. I like the pillows so much that I just derailed my work staff meeting to tell everyone about them. I highly recommend them.
I've had the pillow for about a week and love it. It is perfectly soft yet firm
