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 bedframe. This mattress can also be used with any frame with slats less than 4" apart, 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 our mattresses 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 mattress is delivered.
