Sleepers choosing between Casper’s signature pillow and the Sugg-Pedic pillow will have numerous decisions to make. For example, does the person favor a foam or a fiber core? How about bamboo or cotton on the outer cover? Casper’s coated fiber-filled pillow and the Snuggle-Pedic adjustable shredded memory foam pillow stand apart in many ways but are united when it comes to comfort. Which one could be the right match? Read on for my full comparison.

Who Might Choose

Casper

  • Those who love the feel of fluffy down. This pillow may feature two pillows in one and both are filled with polyester fibers that feel akin to a classic down pillow, only hypoallergenic. While it is cozy there is some maintenance involved and it should be fluffed regularly to maintain loft and overall pillow performance.
  • Prefer a 100% cotton cover. The crisp cover on this pillow is  100% cotton cover in a percale weave. It’s basically, light, crisp and offers sleepers that newly laundered hotel pillow feel.

Snuggle-Pedic 

  • Prefer an adjustable pillow. The Snuggle-Pedic pillow has a zipper on the side that allows sleepers to add/remove pieces of foam filling until the desired loft and firmness is reached. If finding the appropriate amount of filling is challenging or the sleeper needs more foam they can contact the brand’s customer service department.
  • Those who like to try new materials. This pillow is made with viscose from Bamboo, a fabric that is known for being remarkably soft and lightweight. It also includes a small amount of lycra that gives it a decent stretch.

Either 

  • Shoppers who like options. Customers can add or remove pieces of shredded foam inside the Snuggle-Pedic pillow to help a sleeper achieve neutral head, neck and spinal alignment. With Casper, individuals have the ability to use or remove the inner or outer pillow until it is a great match.
  • Sleepers who just want time to decide. Both pillows come with generous trial periods (90 and 100 nights, respectively). This means sleepers can take their time to decide if either pillow meets their sleep health needs without feeling concerned about wasting money on pillows that can’t be returned.Pillow Reviews: Casper vs. Snuggle-Pedic

Overall

Both of these pillows are so versatile they can meet the needs of virtually any type of sleeper. With its polyester fibers, Casper’s pillow closely mimics the feeling of down. Its outer cover has a gusset that provides enhanced loft and allows for more filling, making it a good fit for back or side sleepers. 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 as well, sleepers unzip the pillow to remove (or add) as much filling as they need; I highly recommend this option for those interested in a down pillow but want flexibility in overall feel that they can’t achieve with a solid foam pillow.
