    Life Changing!
    I didn't realize I was sleeping poorly until I slept well, for the first time since I can remember, on my new Casper bed. My partner and I were upgrading to a queen bed and we had heard the Casper ads on some podcasts we listen to, so we looked to them first. I thought, at the time, that I could sleep on anything, so I vouched for the Essential over the other mattresses. What a difference! The first night sleeping on it was the first night in years that I haven't woken up sore. I did have to replace the bent wood slats that came with my bed with plywood for better support, but that was no issue. Unboxing was easy, there was little smell, and the whole experience was a delight.

    Man o man how great it is, slept like a 87 year old baby. No wonder you offer free returns, like that’s ever going to happen!

    Simply Divine. Like sleeping on a cloud.
    Super easy to unbox and set up frame. I have disc issues in T6-7,L-4,L-5,S-1. I also have tendonitis in my rotator cuff, and tennis elbow among with hip issues. Mattress was a bit firm at first and I wasn't sure what to expect. I noticed an immediate difference after the first night sleeping on it. Now it's been several nights and I actually wake up refreshed and pain free. I highly recommend this mattress.

    Surprised!
    This was my first bed-in-a-box adventure, and I must say I was surprised. I'm in my mid-50s and accordingly have some typical aches and pains. So I've been pretty conscious about what I sleep on, because there's almost nothing worse than a sleepless night to make me worthless at work the next day. I had a hard time believing that the Essential would be 'enough' for me, but it was -- enough buoyancy, enough support, enough fluffy comfort.

    Great
    Wasn't sure about buying a mattress on line, but my daughter and son-in-law did some research and talked me into trying the mattress. So far I have no regrets, my doggy loves your mattress. Would I recommend Casper. to friends; I already do. You should pay me for word of mouth advertising. Love love my Mattress. Can't improve it, but you can try.
