You Might Choose

Casper If…

  • You like down pillows. The polyester fibers in both the inner and outer pillow feel very similar to a classic down pillow (but this one is hypoallergenic). It is still cozy but it can sometimes fall flat and may need to be fluffed.
  • You like a crisp cotton feel. The 100% cotton cover of this pillow is so nice, cool and crisp it feels like a new hotel pillow.

Snuggle-Pedic If…

  • You want to make it your own. The Snuggle-Pedic pillow is an adjustable pillow – you can add/remove pieces of foam to determine your own desired loft and level of support. You can even work with them to personally customize the right filling for you and your sleep type.
  • You want a super soft outer cover. This pillow is made with viscose from Bamboo, a fabric that is known for being super soft and lightweight. It also has a little bit of lycra that gives it a nice stretch – no pillow case needed.

Either If…

  • You want options. You can remove pieces of shredded foam inside the Snuggle-Pedic foam pillow to make it work perfectly for you. And with Casper, you can also remove the outer pillow and just sleep with the inner pillow if that feels best to you.
  • You want some time to decide. Both pillows come with generous trial periods (90 and 100 nights respectively). This means you can take your time deciding if either pillow is a good fit for you and helps you sleep well with proper neutral head and neck alignment.

Pillow Reviews: Casper vs. Snuggle-Pedic

Overall

Both of these pillows are so versatile and help to meet the needs of any type of sleeper.

With its polyester fibers, Casper’s pillow closely mimics the feeling of down. Its outer cover has a gusset that gives it loft and allows for more filling, making it a good fit for back or side sleepers. But stomach sleepers can separate the inner and outer pillows and use just one to sleep well.

The Snuggle-Pedic shredded memory foam pillow is adjustable, so you can unzip the pillow and remove (or add) as much filling as you’d like. This could make it a good fit for those interested in trying out a foam pillow.
