Avocado vs. Casper Hybrid: Firmness & Feel Differences
Each of these hybrid beds has a different firmness level and feel that each suit different types of sleepers.
What’s the Firmness Of the Avocado & Casper Hybrid Mattresses?
The Avocado mattress is a medium-firm mattress that measures at about a 7/10 on a scale where 1 is the softest mattress and 10 is the firmest. This firmness level provides enough support for all body types, but will feel firmer to lightweight sleepers and will feel softer to heavyweight sleepers whose bodies will sink deeper into the bed.
The Casper Hybrid bed is about a 5.5/10 on the firmness scale. It may feel too soft for heavyweight and average-weight sleepers who prefer a firmer feel but should suit most lightweight sleepers.
What Do the Avocado & Casper Hybrid Mattresses Feel Like?
The Avocado mattress is bouncy and responds quickly to your movements, but won’t contour as deeply to your curves as a memory foam bed. This bed also stays cool all night long. The Casper Hybrid bed is also on the cooler side, but the bed’s memory foam layers might trap some heat in hotter weather. The Casper Hybrid bed also provides deeper pressure relief for lightweight and average-weight sleepers, but heavyweight sleepers may sink too far into the memory foam layers for comfort.
What’s It Like to Sleep On the Avocado & Casper Hybrid Mattresses?
The Avocado mattress has firm support to keep back and stomach sleepers propped up comfortably throughout the night, but side sleepers might not have the cushion to keep the hips and shoulders comfortable as they press into the mattress. The Casper Hybrid, on the other hand, has a balance of pressure relief and firm support to suit all sleeping positions—as long as you weigh less than 230 pounds. Heavyweight sleepers will need a bed with firmer support.

|Lightweight (< 130 lbs):||4||3||3|
|Average weight (130 – 230 lbs):||5||5||4|
|Heavyweight (> 230 lbs):||3||2||3|
1 = Very poor, 2 = Not good, 3 = Fair, 4 = Good, 5 = Excellent
Average-Weight Sleepers (130–230 lbs)
The Avocado mattress has a firm supportive layer that keeps back and stomach sleepers in a healthy posture throughout the night, but side sleepers may need a more plush comfort layer to keep pressure off of the hips and shoulders at night.
The Casper bed’s ergonomically designed innerspring coil layer provides zoned support for average-weight sleepers in every sleeping position, and its responsive foam layers make it easy for combination sleepers to move around and get comfy.
Heavyweight Sleepers (> 230 lbs)
Heavyweight back and stomach sleepers will stay propped up thanks to the Avocado bed’s firm latex layers and bouncy innerspring core. Combination sleepers also will be able to move easily across this bouncy bed. Side sleepers may be able to get comfortable on this bed if they add Avocado’s optional pillow top to their mattress, but would probably sleep more comfortably on a bed with deeper pressure relief.
Heavyweight sleepers likely won’t get the support they need on the Casper Hybrid mattress and should choose a bed designed to support heavier body types.
Lightweight Sleepers (< 130 lbs)
The Avocado bed is bouncy and responsive support that will keep back and stomach sleepers who like a mattress on the firmer side comfortable throughout the night. Side sleepers should steer clear and opt for a softer bed.
Although the Casper Hybrid provides enough support for lightweight back and stomach sleepers, it might not be soft enough for lightweight side sleepers. Both the Avocado and the Casper mattresses are good picks for combination sleepers.

Avocado vs. Casper Hybrid Mattress Performance Ratings & Differences
Both of these beds sleep relatively cool—but the Avocado has a slight edge over the Casper Hybrid bed in terms of temperature. Foam beds have a reputation for sleeping hot, but the Casper Hybrid bed is built with aerated foam and innerspring coils which allow air to flow through the mattress and dissipate heat. Although the Casper Hybrid is a cooler-than-average bed, the Avocado still sleeps the coolest out of the two hybrid models thanks to its use of cooling latex.
If you sleep with a partner or a pet, you’ll want a bed that isolates motion so you aren’t woken up every time your sleep mate changes sleeping positions or gets up for a midnight snack. Latex doesn’t do the best job of limiting motion transfer‚ but the Casper’s thick foam layers prevent movements from making their way to your side of the bed—making it a good pick if you share a bed with an active sleeper.
Both of these beds provide superior edge support, meaning you can sit on or sprawl close to the sides of the bed without worrying about slipping off the sides. Edge support also adds durability to the mattress and makes it easy to get in and out of bed.
The Casper Hybrid’s foam comfort layer allows your joints and weight-bearing areas of the body to sink deeply into the bed, The Avocado’s latex comfort layer provides some gentle contouring, but if you’re looking for a bed that provides cushioning comfort—opt for the Casper Hybrid.
A bed that is well suited for your body type and sleeping position can help relieve pain by supporting a healthy sleeping posture. The Avocado bed has enough firm support to prevent sinkage in all body types but may not have enough pressure relief to prevent aches and pains in side sleepers.
The Casper Hybrid bed could help relieve pain for side sleepers or light-to-average-weight sleepers that need pressure relief, but those over 230 lbs may not be adequately supported enough on this bed to prevent pain.
Both of these beds are more durable than average thanks to their hybrid constructions, high-quality materials and reinforced edge support. You should be able to sleep on either mattress for between 7 to 10 years before you start to see signs of wear.

Avocado & Casper Hybrid FAQs
What is a bed-in-a-box mattress?
Both the Avocado and the Casper Hybrid mattresses are sold as a bed in a box, meaning that these mattresses are compressed into and delivered in a box. When you open and unwrap the box, your mattress will inflate to its full shape within a few hours.
What is the difference between the Casper Hybrid and Casper mattress?
The Casper Original mattress is an all-foam bed, while the Casper Hybrid is built with a combination of memory foam and innerspring coils. The added innerspring coil layer adds breathability, responsiveness and extra support to the Casper Hybrid bed. The Casper Original, however, will provide deeper pressure relief.
Does the Avocado mattress have off-gassing?
Most bed-in-a-box mattresses emit a faint chemical odor for a few hours after you unbox your bed. Since the Avocado mattress is made from organic and natural materials, off-gassing is minimal as compared to the stronger smell of memory foam beds, and any smell dissipates quickly.
