In the other corner is Casper’s signature coated fiber-filled pillow with its crisp cotton casing. Two different pillows, for two very different sleepers?

Who Might Choose

Good Life Essentials 

  • Back or side sleepers. 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).
  • Shoppers on a budget. Although prices on Amazon do fluctuate, the Good Life Essentials pillow is a less expensive option than Casper’s pillow.

Casper 

  • Sleepers who 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 that provides more loft and additional filling but it remains cozy. It can sometimes fall flat and may need to be fluffed.
  • Shoppers who like to try before buying. Good Life Essentials pillow is currently sold only on Amazon but potential customers can take a look at Casper pillows at most Target retailers where they’re also sold.

Overall

Side sleepers and those who like more loft and support in their pillows will enjoy the Good Life Essentials pillow, while back, side and stomach sleepers can enjoy the versatile Casper pillow.

Both may need to be washed and fluffed on occasion to enjoy all of their benefits. Luckily, both come with trial periods so sleepers can see which may be the best fit for them.
