Casper and DreamCloud are both mattresses that are sold online. Other than that similarity, the two mattresses are pretty different – this post will compare the two options so people can decide which is a better fit for them.
- Both mattresses are a little firmer than average and have good support.
- Both the DreamCloud and Casper incorporate memory foam somewhere in the construction.
- Both companies offer free shipping, generous sleep trials, and great customer service.
- Casper has four layers, while DreamCloud has eight.
- Casper is an all-foam mattress, while DreamCloud incorporates coils in the support layer.
- DreamCloud is thicker at 15″ versus Casper at 10″.
- DreamCloud is more expensive ($550 to $1,150 for Casper; about $1,000 to $1,700 for DreamCloud).
- DreamCloud offers a longer trial period of 365 days, compared to Casper’s 100 days.
- DreamCloud will be firmer than Casper for most sleepers.
- DreamCloud has more layers than most mattresses, and many of those layers are of relatively narrow thickness.
- DreamCloud is topped by a True Tufted™ Cashmere Top, which features hand-sewn tufts that give it a Eurotop feel.
- The top layer is 0.39″ (1 cm) of gel-infused memory foam, which adds softness, pressure relief, and body contouring.
- Below that is 1.77″ (4.5 cm) of quilted memory foam, which is actually split into two layers of 2 cm and 2.5 cm, respectively.
- A 0.39″ (1 cm) layer of natural latex contributes to the springiness and bounce of DreamCloud.
- Next is 1.97″ (5 cm) of “Dreamplush” supporting memory foam that gives additional body contouring.
- A 0.59″ layer (1.5 cm) of super dense, super soft memory foam comes before the thick layer of pocketed coils.
- The thickest layer is a 7.87″ (20 cm) layer of individually pocketed “BestRest” coils. The coils come in two levels of resistance and are placed in different ways across five comfort zones to ensure the right kind of support for the right part of your body.
- The base layer is 1.6″ (5 cm) of high-density, super soft memory foam base that the steel coils can rest on.
- Casper consists of four layers made up of different types of foam.
- The cover uses a lightweight premium fabric that makes for a stretchy, breathable cover that doesn’t affect the overall feel of the mattress significantly.
- On top is a 1.5″ layer of bouncy, latex-like specialty polyfoam with small holes for breathability, and Casper describes the material as “open-cell.”
- The next layer is 1.5″ of 3.5 lb density memory foam, which helps the mattress conform well to the curves of the body and provides pressure relief.
- The third layer is a 1.5″ polyfoam transition layer that is meant to ensure even weight distribution.
- The base layer is 5″ of polyfoam with a 1.8 lb density, the same used in many other bed-in-a-box mattresses.
- DreamCloud has more layers and a more complex construction.
- DreamCloud uses coils in its support layer, while Casper is an all-foam mattress.
- Both mattresses are springy and bouncy.
- DreamCloud is thicker and generally more supportive than the Casper.
- DreamCloud can probably support heavier people a little better.
While both mattresses are springy, DreamCloud returns to shape a little faster than Casper.
Motion Transfer Differences
Both mattresses isolate motion well and should be good options for couples who don’t want to be disturbed by their partner’s movements.
The DreamCloud Should Work For …
- Those who sleep on their stomach or back. DreamCloud is just a little firmer than Casper, making it a more appropriate pick for stomach sleepers and back sleepers.
- People who are looking for luxury. DreamCloud’s cashmere cover with hand-sewn tufts gives it a luxurious feel. Overall it definitely has the feel of a luxury mattress.
The Casper Should Work For …
- Those who want a softer mattress. Casper is a little softer and will conform better to the contours of the body.
- People who are on a budget- Casper is less expensive than DreamCloud so, if someone just can’t decide, they can at least save some money with the Casper.
At the end of the day, these two mattresses are quite different, so the decision should be pretty straightforward. Consumers should take a look through this article multiple times, assess their own needs and preferences, and then make a more informed decision.
