Casper is a company that truly took the mattress industry by storm, and it has had incredible success since it launched over two years ago. Brooklyn Bedding is another online-only company with a strong reputation for quality.
Both companies offer a great value for their mattresses by cutting out the middle man and passing the savings along to the consumer, but there are a few clear differences between the two mattresses. In this article, I will go through what those differences are in an attempt to make it a little more clear which one would be right for those who are deciding between Brooklyn Bedding vs Casper.
- Both the Brooklyn Bedding and Casper have a similar business model (online-only)
- Both are all-foam mattresses that ship free and arrive in a box
- Both companies have great reputations and boast excellent customer service
- Their Return/Trial policies are both very good and generous
- Casper is $100 more expensive (irrespective of discounts)
- Brooklyn Bedding has 3 firmness options, but Casper only has one
- Casper is latex over memory foam, and Brooklyn Bedding is latex over latex
- Brooklyn Bedding is more bouncy and responsive
The Casper mattress consists of 1.5” of latex, over 1.5” of 4lb. density memory foam, over 1.5” of 2.5lb. density transition foam, over 5” of 1.8 lb. density polyfoam. Learn more in my Casper mattress review.
The Brooklyn Bedding #bestmattressever consists of 2” of talalay latex, over 2” of dunlop latex, over 6” of high-density polyfoam. Learn more in my Brooklyn Bedding mattress review.
The key difference in the construction is Casper has a memory foam layer, while Brooklyn Bedding has two latex layers. Durability-wise, both mattresses should be pretty durable, but the general feel is where there is a fairly significant difference. See more about the Brooklyn Bedding feel in the video below:
With Casper, people sink in a bit more and the feel isn’t as bouncy as the Brooklyn Bedding. The #bestmattressever really has that pure latex, bouncy feel and, while it conforms well to the body, it is very resilient and bouncy. Which feel is better really comes down to personal preference, so shoppers should analyze which type of feel they prefer and see which one better fits what they like.
The Brooklyn Bedding Should Work For …
- Those Who Want A More Firm Or More Soft Mattress – Brooklyn Bedding offers 3 firmness options, while Casper offers one and is more for people with middle-of-the-road preferences. If someone knows they want a more firm or more soft mattress, then having the extra firmness options might be best for them.
- Those Who Want More Bounce – The feel of the Brooklyn Bedding is like sleeping “on” the mattress rather than “in” it, and it is also bouncier than Casper. People who want that extra resilience/bounce will find that the Brooklyn Bedding is a better match.
- People Who Want To Save A Little Extra Money – Not including discounts, the Brooklyn Bedding #bestmattressever is $100 less than the Casper. If budget is a big concern for you, then that’s definitely something to note.
The Casper Should Work For …
- People Who Have Average Sleeping Preferences/Stats – If someone is medium-weight and doesn’t want a particularly firm or soft mattress, then they won’t need additional firmness options, and the Casper will fit them just fine.
- Those Who Want More Of A Sinking-In Feel – Casper has a memory foam layer, so people will feel a bit more like they are sinking into the mattress (not too much though). This is a more standard foam feel, and it definitely is less bouncy than Brooklyn Bedding is.
Though these two mattresses are different, I think the choice comes down to personal preference rather than quality (I recommend both). There are enough differences here that people should be able to make the right decision for them.
