You Might Choose

Good Life Essentials If…

  • You are a back or side sleeper. Based on my experience, the pieces of shredded memory foam inside the Good LIfe Essentials pillow create enough loft, firmness, and support to be a good fit for side sleepers (and some back sleepers who want more support).
  • You are on a budget. Although prices on Amazon do fluctuate, the Good Life Essentials pillow is a less expensive option than Casper’s pillow.

Casper If…

  • You prefer the feel of down to foam. The polyester fibers in both the inner and outer pillow give the feel of a down pillow. The pillow has a gusset which provides more loft and additional filling but it remains cozy. It can sometimes fall flat and may need to be fluffed.
  • You want to feel it in person. Good Life Essentials pillow is only sold on Amazon but you can now take a look at Casper pillows at Target retailers (and you can try their mattresses at additional stores). You can view a complete list of where to look at Casper mattresses, here.
