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 you can decide which is a better fit for you.
- Both are a little firmer than average.
- Both incorporate memory foam.
- Both offer free shipping.
- Casper has four layers, while DreamCloud has eight.
- Casper is all-foam, while DreamCloud incorporates coils.
- DreamCloud is thicker at 15″. Casper is 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 is firmer than Casper.
- 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.
- Below that is 1.77″ (4.5 cm) of quilted memory foam. The foam 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 of DreamCloud.
- Next is 1.97″ (5 cm) of “Dreamplush” supporting memory foam.
- 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.
- Casper consists of four layers made up of different foams.
- The cover uses a lightweight premium fabric that makes for a stretchy, breathable cover.
- On top is a 1.5″ layer of bouncy, latex-like specialty polyfoam with small holes for breathability. 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 your body. This layer provides pressure relief.
- The third layer is a 1.5″ polyfoam transition layer. The purpose of this layer is 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.
- DreamCloud uses coils, while Casper is all-foam.
- Both mattresses are springy.
- DreamCloud is thicker.
- 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.
Pick DreamCloud If …
- You sleep on your stomach or back. DreamCloud is just a little firmer than Casper, making it a more appropriate pick for stomach or back sleepers.
- You 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.
Pick Casper If …
- You sleep on your side. Casper is a little softer and will conform better to the contours of your body.
- You are on a budget. Casper is less expensive than DreamCloud. If you just can’t decide, you can at least save some money with the Casper.
I hope this comparison helped you with your mattress search. Please leave any specific questions about DreamCloud or Casper in the comments.
