Below is Strategist writer Lori Keong’s ode to her Casper mattress, which happens to be 20 percent off today — the cheapest it’s been since February.
Much like a washer-and-dryer unit included in your apartment, in New York the Casper mattress feels a bit like a status item that says that you’ve made it in some way. This might be because they can cost as much as a MacBook. But as one of the most popular mattresses sold online, their reputation also speaks for itself: Reviewers tend either to love it or hate it, but when they really love it, they’re over the moon about the mattress’s support and cool-to-the-touch surface.
And I can confirm, as a recent convert to Casper, that sleeping on one of these truly does feel like a luxury. I’m not the kind of sleeper who actually wants to feel like she’s floating on a cloud — I prefer a little more back support as a frequent sloucher. Casper’s unique four layers of foam make for that Goldilocks balance between firm, bouncy, and soft, so I still feel cradled no matter which sleep position I’m in. Plus, I don’t feel swallowed in memory foam or rocked like a boat — as with overly cushy and springy mattresses.
