Casper Versus Purple
The Casper mattress is a blend of latex and memory foam, designed with an aim to deliver benefits of both the materials. Casper is one of the first companies that introduced the online selling business model. Purple also started with a Kickstarter operation and has also seen great reputation since their launch. If you are interested in any of these mattresses but are confused regarding which one to go for, here is the comparison that may ease your task.
The mattress uses 3 varied layers, making a 10inch mattress. These layers include a 1.5inch top layer of the latex foam, a 1.5inch middle layer of memory foam and a 7inch higher density bottom layer foam support that acts as the mattress’s foundation.
The memory foam is known to provide pressure relief and support as well as heat absorption, while the latex provides comfort and cooling advantages of latex and helps eliminate “sleeping hot” issue. The mattress’s cover has been made with 100 percent polyester and developed to help breathability.
This mattress has been built with medium firmness and is suitable for a wide range of sleeping preferences. However, its suitability is also based on your body’s weight. For sleepers having lesser weight, the firmness is ranked as 5 out of 10 (with 10 being the firmest), while for heavier sleepers, the firmness may come as 8 out of 10.
The latex layer of the mattress gives some bounce and springiness to the mattress, but with just 3 inch of the total comfort layer, it doesn’t stand out as better among other mattresses of this category. The mattress doesn’t sleep hot since the latex layer doesn’t retain heat and it helps to cool the mattress. You may face much sinking with Casper if your weight is above 200 lbs. Though motion transfer is satisfactory yet the lack of support at the edge may seem problematic for the couples. As far as off-gassing is concerned, a minimal chemical odor is felt; however, it vanishes fast.
The Purple mattress consists of 9.5” thick, having 2” of hyper-elastic polymer over two layers of polyfoam
The best feature of the mattress is its hyper-elastic polymer. It does a great job to prevent the mattress from getting hot.
The mattress cover has been made up of viscose, polyester, and polyester-lycra, which makes it nice to touch and very breathable.
In terms of mattress firmness, it’s ranked as 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale (10 being the firmest); however, it is also very pressure relieving.
Since mattress has a unique comfort layer material (hyper-elastic polymer), it gives a very unique feel. Like a latex mattress, Purple mattress springs back very quickly and sleeps cool.
The mattress does a great job overall in terms of motion transfer and sinking. However, It isn’t as good as a high-quality memory foam mattress in terms of motion transfer. Still, reviews show it as a great option for most couples.
A faint “new mattress” smell is felt right when the mattress comes out of the packaging; however, it disappears within a few hours.

In a nutshell, it can be said that Purple has turned out to be more resilient and bouncer in its top layer as compared to Casper. In addition, Casper is also associated with a higher degree of sinking than the Purple. When it comes to cool sleeping, Purple is again better than Casper. Lastly, in terms of pricing, we found Casper as more affordable than the Purple, i.e. as per the current market price, Casper is around $150 less expensive than Purple (not including any discount). Hence, if you are confused between Casper and Purple but have a limited budget and you can for go a little bit of comfort, Casper can be considered.
