Finding the right mattress will depend on a few key factors: proper support and personal preference. However, your budget, ideal mattress size, and even, your sleeping position may also dictate the type of mattress you will purchase. For a good night’s sleep, Casper has the best mattresses. Whether you prefer a firm or soft mattress, foam or hybrid, there’s a quality Casper mattress waiting for you.

Every Casper mattress is designed for comfort and support, but each has unique benefits to suit your individual sleep style and preferences. For example, hot sleepers may prioritize the benefits of Snow Technology in Casper’s cooling mattresses. Sleepers with aches and pains might look to the unmatched support of the Wave Hybrid, while those who are looking to upgrade to a higher quality mattress at a cozy price could consider the Element pro mattress.

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. Allowing 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.
Buying a new mattress is not a one-size-fits-all situation, so it’s essential to evaluate your individual needs. If you have a history of back pain or sleep problems, you may want a free trial period to help you make sure you’re comfortable with your new mattress.
Here are some major factors you will want to consider when choosing a mattress.
Your Room Size
The amount of space available to you should be considered. A larger mattress will take up more space, so plan accordingly and ensure there is plenty of space in your bedroom for your mattress.
Below are the mattress sizes in square inches and square feet.
Twin: 2,925 sq. in./20.3 sq. ft.
Twin XL: 3,120 sq. in./21.7 sq. ft.
Full: 4,050 sq. in./28.1 sq. ft.
Queen: 4,800 sq. in./33.3 sq. ft.
King: 6,080 sq. in./42.2 sq. ft.
California King: 6,048 sq. in./42 sq. ft.
Your Body Size
You should take your height and width into consideration when choosing a mattress. A typical twin mattress is 75 inches tall, while a twin XL is 80 inches tall. If an individual is taller than six feet two inches, a twin mattress is probably not for them. Instead, it’s best to go with the XL, full, queen, or king bed—all of which can accommodate someone who is up to 6 feet 7 inches.
Those that are taller than 7 feet should opt for a California king bed. For those who want more space on either side of their body, a full, queen, or king bed will be the most comfortable.
The amount of money you are willing to spend on a mattress can also help you choose the right size. Buying a mattress that meets both your size needs and your financial needs is key.

A hybrid mattress combines the pressure relief of foam with the sturdy feel of resilient springs for added support and bounce.
Memory foam is a synthetic material known for its use in mattresses (although it’s also used in bedding, shoes, and furniture). It’s soft, durable, and heat-wicking abilities provide support for aching joints and have made it popular with sleepers of all body types and sleep styles.
Using a mattress protector is a no-brainer to guard against dirt, spills, and normal wear and tear. We developed a water resistent mattress protector that conforms through the sides to keep it pristine. The best part? It won’t compromise the comfort of your bed.
Give It a Bath
While we don’t recommend trying to wash it yourself, there are plenty of professionals out there who can get the job done. We recommend contacting your local mattress cleaning service and scheduling a convenient home visit.
Keep It Smelling Fresh
To keep odors in check, air out the mattress by freeing it from the sheets and opening a few windows. For serious smell situations, consider sprinkling baking soda on the cover, then vacuuming it away before putting the sheets back on.
Keep Out Dust with Fitted Sheets
Use fitted sheets to protect your mattress from dust, dirt, and dead skin. This will help keep your allergies at bay and ensure that dust mites don’t find a new home.
Rotate Your Mattress
Along with regular cleaning, periodically rotate your mattress head-to-foot (180°) every six months to make sure it wears evenly. There’s no need to flip a Casper mattress — each layer is strategically designed for your comfort and not to be flipped.
The protection plan covers stains, rips, and tears from any single incident. This includes spilling coffee in bed, ink stains, and common accidents from children and pets. There’s no deductible and no limit on the number of claims you can make. That means that no matter how many times you move, or how many times you have breakfast in bed, you’ll be covered.
If your old mattress is on the way out but you're not sure what to do with it, we've got some ideas! Did you know that your old mattress can be recycled? Before disposing of your mattress, look into your state's policies for mattress removal, as that will be the most environmentally friendly option. If you are not able to recycle it, consider donating it to a local charitable organization so that your mattress can go to someone in need. Other options include reselling it, repurposing it, or throwing it away responsibly.
Mattress removal is also available as part of our In-Home Delivery and Setup service.
