Casper vs. Loom & Leaf Mattress Comparison

Is a luxury memory foam mattress better than a bed-in-a-box online mattress brand? We’ll answer that question and more in this Casper vs. Loom & Leaf mattress comparison.

Comparing Casper & Loom and Leaf Mattresses

The Casper is an all-foam mattress that features an extra-responsive foam top layer and zoned memory foam transition layer. The Loom and Leaf is a luxury memory foam mattress that’s available in two firmness options: relaxed firm and firm.

In general, the Casper is the better mattress for couples who are concerned about motion transfer, as well as combination sleepers who need a mattress that quickly responds to changes in sleeping position. You’ll like the Loom & Leaf mattress if you appreciate luxury touches like organic cotton. It’s also a little more versatile: Side sleepers will like the relaxed firm version, and back and stomach sleepers will like the firm version.

Differences

  • The Casper mattress does a better job of isolating motion from one side of the bed to the other.
  • The Loom & Leaf has a more traditional memory foam feel, with slow sinkage and whole body contouring. The Casper is conforming, but it’s generally more buoyant.
  • As a luxury mattress brand, the Loom & Leaf is priced a little higher than the Casper, which is considered a mid-range mattress brand.

Similarities

  • Both of these mattresses promote good sleeping posture (also called spinal alignment), so we consider them some of the best mattresses for back pain.
  • The Casper and Loom & Leaf both have an all-foam construction that’s more prone to heat retention.

Who the Loom and Leaf Mattress is Best For 

Best For…

  • Back sleepers of all body types will get just the right amount of support and cushioning on either version of the Loom & Leaf.
  • Stomach sleepers will get plenty of support for their hips and lower back on the firm version of the Loom & Leaf.
  • The relaxed firm Loom & Leaf provides plenty of cushioning: enough for side sleepers.

May Not be Best For…

  • Hot sleepers may get too warm on the dense memory foam layers that top the Loom & Leaf mattress.
  • Those who like a bouncy mattress won’t get the feel they’re looking for from memory foam.
  • Those sensitive to off-gassing (the “new mattress” smell) may want to stick with latex or innerspring mattresses.

Deciding Between Casper & Loom and Leaf

Firmness / Feel

The firmness level of a mattress is a measurement of how soft or hard the mattress will feel to sleep on. At Mattress Nerd, we use a firmness scale that ranges from 1–10. Softer mattresses are closer to 1/10, and firmer mattresses are closer to 10/10. If you have a heavier body type, you’re more likely to perceive a mattress as softer, while petite sleepers tend to experience mattresses as firmer than advertised.

Both the Casper and relaxed firm Loom & Leaf mattresses are considered medium-firm, or 6/10 on the firmness scale. The firm Loom & Leaf is 8/10. Predictably, you’ll sink deeper into the comfort layers on the Casper and relaxed firm Loom & Leaf mattresses. The Loom & Leaf has a slow-sinking feel like the best memory foam mattresses that will wrap around your body and take a little while to rebound when you get up.

Motion Isolation

Solo sleepers don’t need to pay as much attention to motion isolation, but couples should take note. All-foam mattresses typically reduce motion transfer better than hybrid and innerspring mattresses, so it’s no surprise that the Casper and Loom & Leaf mattresses both keep motion transfer to a minimum. Even so, we think the Casper does a slightly better job in this category. Both mattresses will keep couples undisturbed and lack of motion makes them some of the best mattresses for sex.

Edge Support

Edge support matters mainly for anyone who likes to feel well supported while sitting or sleeping near the edges of their bed. Some mattress companies frame their mattresses with foam or coil reinforcements, but neither Casper nor Loom & Leaf have any edge support features. Still, we felt supported on the edges of both mattresses, though we sunk a little lower into the Loom & Leaf.

Pressure Relief 

Side sleepers should pay extra attention to how well a mattress relieves tension on pressure points like shoulders and hips. Generally, softer mattresses provide the best pressure relief, but medium-firm mattresses also do a good job.

The Casper and relaxed firm Loom & Leaf provide a similar amount of pressure relief. We think that the Loom & Leaf is a little more effective at cushioning your shoulders and hips, but it’s pretty close. The firm Loom & Leaf has enough pressure relief for stomach sleepers and lightweight or average-weight back sleepers, but not side sleepers.

Spine Alignment 

Spinal alignment is another way of saying good sleeping posture. Just like good posture while sitting or standing can prevent neck and back pain, good posture while sleeping keeps you from waking up stiff and sore. Fortunately, both the Casper and Loom & Leaf mattresses support your spine really well, probably due to their Zoned Support layers.

Durability 

Memory foam mattresses typically last seven to 10 years, though they can last longer or shorter depending on the frequency and intensity of use. The Casper is protected by a 10-year warranty, and the Loom & Leaf is protected by a 15-year warranty, so even if your mattress develops defects, you can make a claim and receive repairs or a replacement.

Temperature 

The best cooling mattresses create temperature neutral or cool products through a number of methods. Foam beds tend to retain heat more than hybrid or innerspring beds, so the Casper and Loom & Leaf tend to sleep a little warm. Still, this will only be an issue for those who sleep really hot at night. If you’re choosing between the two, we think Loom & Leaf stays a little cooler, probably because of the cooling gel in the top layer.

Support Layer Base foam
Mattress Thickness  11”

The Casper mattress is wrapped in a breathable polyester mattress cover that allows you to sink deep into the AirScape foam on top of the mattress. This top layer is perforated, which improves airflow by pushing hot air away from the mattress. The second layer is Zoned Support foam. This memory foam layer is firmer in the center third, which cradles and lifts your hips. An extra thick layer of base foam keeps you from sinking too far into the mattress.

The Loom & Leaf mattress is covered in soft organic cotton that’s treated with an all-natural antimicrobial treatment. Instead of a chemical flame retardant, the Loom & Leaf includes a layer of natural thistle pulp. 

The top layer of gel-infused visco-elastic memory foam is divided into ergonomic zones that provide targeted support for your lower back. The second layer is high-density memory foam that contours around pressure points, and the third layer and base layers are made of supportive polyfoam.

Our Casper vs. Loom & Leaf Final Review

The Casper and Loom & Leaf both make use of contouring memory foam layers, but otherwise feel like pretty different mattresses. The Casper’s Zoned Support layer is ideal for back sleepers and those with back pain. The dense foam layers also keep motion transfer to a minimum, which is a great feature for couples. The Loom & Leaf comes with a luxury price tag, but the relaxed firm is our pick for side sleepers, and the firm version is well-suited to stomach sleepers
