A good mattress will last you for decades, and you’ll spend a third of your daily life on it. When considering such an important purchase, you should be able to spend significant time sleeping on the mattress. Fortunately, Casper allows you to test drive all of its mattresses for 100 nights risk free.
Casper updated its flagship mattress and introduced the Casper Hybrid mattress a couple of years ago. The flagship Casper features a new zoned support foam layer that focuses on providing pressure relief and support that is firmer under the hips and softer under the shoulders.
