Purple vs. Casper Mattress Comparison

The Casper is a mixed-foam mattress that combines soft, springy polyfoam with a pressure-relieving layer of memory foam. The original Purple mattress boasts the Purple Grid—a top layer made from a gel-like material that evenly distributes body weight so you feel like you’re floating. 

Both the Purple and Casper are best for back and side sleepers under 230 lbs. The Casper is better than the Purple for stomach sleepers thanks to the bed’s middle layer of memory foam. The Purple mattress sleeps cooler than the Casper and has a weightless feel that we think those with joint pain will especially love.

Comparing Casper & Purple Mattresses 


Key Differences

  • Comfort Layer: The Purple mattress features a gel-like Purple Grid comfort layer, while Casper’s comfort layers are a mix of polyfoam and memory foam.
  • Sleep Position Suitability: Thanks to greater support along the body’s lumbar region, the Casper is the better mattress for stomach sleepers. Both beds work well for side and back sleepers.  
  • Feel: The Casper mattress has a gentle hugging foam mattress feel. The Purple delivers similar pressure relief without the cradling sensation, instead offering a weightless, floating feel. 
  • Temperature Neutrality: The Purple mattress has greater airflow along the surface, making it an overall cooler mattress than the Casper. 

Key Similarities

  • Pressure Relief: Both beds keep pressure off of your shoulders and hips, making them good mattresses for side sleepers.
  • Spinal Alignment: The Purple Grid and Casper’s ergonomic memory foam layer both promote proper spine alignment (i.e. sleeping posture) for back and side sleepers. Both are great mattresses for back sleepers.
  • Pricing: The Purple and Casper cost within $200 of each other in their various sizes, with Purple mattresses costing a little bit more.

The Purple Mattress Is Best For 


  • People interested in a “floating” feel: The Purple Grid is a unique gel material that flexes with the body and buckles at areas of high pressure. This proprietary material can give sleepers a “weightless” sensation.
  • Hot sleepers: The Purple Grid material along the mattress surface stores less body heat than the foams used in the comfort layers of other mattresses. Over 1,800 air channels improve breathability and help keep the surface cool and dry.  
  • People with joint pain: The Purple’s surface evenly distributes weight, minimizing pressure and pain at sensitive joints.


Not Best For…


  • Heavyweight people: At just 9.5” deep, the Purple bed likely won’t provide the support or cushion that heavier bodies need. We don’t recommend this mattress for people who weigh more than 230 lbs. 
  • People who like being hugged by their mattress: Do you like being enveloped by plush, cloud-like foam? If so, the Purple may not be for you.  It feels light and airy, unlike the deep cushioning or close contouring of an all-foam bed.
  • Stomach sleepers: The Purple’s grid top layer collapses when enough weight is applied, particularly around areas like the hips and glutes. While this contouring is good for the body alignment of side and back sleepers, it can cause back pain and discomfort in stomach sleepers.

The Casper Original Mattress Is Best For


  • Memory foam mattress fans: A layer of memory foam near the top of the mattress gives the Casper the body-cradling coziness that you expect from a high-quality foam mattress.  
  • Couples and those who co-sleep: Casper’s foam layers dampen motion, which supports deeper sleep for people who share the bed. Also, the edges are sturdy and comfortable so you can carve out your own space. 
  • Back and side sleepers: While Casper works well enough for lightweight and average-weight stomach sleepers, it really shines for back and side sleepers. The bed’s memory foam layer is firmer in the center third, which keeps the hips lifted in line with the rest of the spine.


Not Best For…


  • People who sleep hot: While Casper incorporates cooling technologies like perforated, open-cell foam (aka, light and airy foam that’s hole-punched for better breathability), it’s not the best cooling mattress for hot sleepers. With firm foam instead of coils at the base of the mattress, the Casper traps some body heat. 
  • People who like a bouncy mattress: Since the Casper doesn’t have any coils, it lacks the springy feel of a hybrid or innerspring mattress. 
  • Heavyweight people: The Casper isn’t our top choice for sleepers who weigh more than 230 lbs. Bigger bodies can cause the mattress surface to soften with time, which could lead to excess sinkage after only a few years. For better options, see the best mattresses for heavy people.

Casper vs. Purple Video Comparison

 

Deciding Between Casper & Purple


Firmness / Feel

Mattress firmness is measured on a 1–10 firmness scale, with 1 being extremely soft and 10 extremely firm. The right firmness level for your body depends on your weight and sleeping position. Sleepers who rest on their side often prefer a softer mattress that cushions pressure points. Stomach and back sleepers fare better on medium-firm mattresses, since they offer a flatter surface that improves back support.

Your weight is also a factor in firmness preference. Lighter folks tend to need a softer mattress to get enough pressure relief, while heavier people need a firmer mattress for adequate support. 

Both the Purple and Casper have middle-of-the-road firmness levels: 6.5/10 for the Purple and 6/10 for the Casper. This firmness works well for most sleeping positions. While the Casper works better for stomach sleepers thanks to extra support for the lower back and hips, both beds are best for people who weigh less than 230 lbs. 

Purple Performance By Sleeping Position:

Body Type: BACK SLEEPERS STOMACH SLEEPERS SIDE SLEEPERS
Lightweight (< 130 lbs):  5 3 4
Average weight (130–230 lbs): 5 2 4
Heavyweight (> 230 lbs):  3 1 4

Casper Performance By Sleeping Position:

Body Type: BACK SLEEPERS STOMACH SLEEPERS SIDE SLEEPERS
Lightweight (< 130 lbs):  5 4 4
Average weight (130–230 lbs): 5 3 5
Heavyweight (> 230 lbs):  3 2 2

1 = Very poor, 2 = Not good, 3 = Fair, 4 = Good, 5 = Excellent

Motion Isolation

Motion isolation is an important factor for couples, who can experience disrupted sleep if they feel their partner switching positions or getting out of bed. The Purple minimizes motion transfer very well—as does the Casper—thanks to the naturally low motion transfer rate of foam and the Purple Grid.

Edge Support

Edge support is important for people who have trouble getting in and out of bed and for those who snuggle up along the mattress’s perimeter. The Purple offers relatively good edge support when you lie along the edges, but is a bit less supportive when sitting on the edge or getting in and out of bed. The Casper’s level of edge support is similar, both when sleeping on the edges or sitting on them. 

Pressure Relief 

Pressure relief is particularly important for side sleepers whose hips and shoulders need extra cushioning. A bed’s rate of pressure relief is closely linked to the materials used in its comfort layer and how well it conforms to sleepers’ bodies.

The Purple mattress does an excellent job distributing weight throughout the Purple Grid, providing great pressure relief for lightweight and average-weight people. Heavier sleepers may come into contact with the core layers and experience added pressure. The Casper is similar, providing great pressure relief for average-weight and lightweight sleepers, with heavyweight sleepers running into some added pressure as well.  

Spine Alignment 

Your ability to achieve spinal alignment on the Casper or the Purple depends on your weight and sleeping position. In general, side sleepers should find sufficient cushioning and spinal alignment on the Purple for the hips and shoulders, and back sleepers will find a neutral alignment. Heavyweight sleepers (more than 230 lbs) and stomach sleepers may experience uncomfortable sinkage that leads to a misaligned spine.

The Casper mattress provides excellent spinal alignment for lightweight and average-weight back and side sleepers. It’s the Casper’s memory foam layer that provides the contouring that aligns the spine in every position. Heavyweight sleepers may experience pressure in their hips and shoulders (especially for side sleepers) or excess sink in their hips (especially for back and stomach sleepers). 

If you want the best spinal alignment in multiple sleeping positions, see the best mattresses for combination sleepers.

Durability 

While gauging mattress durability isn’t an exact science, we’d say the Casper mattress has a lifespan of roughly six to eight years. The support foam, which is relatively thick when compared to other all-foam beds, helps it last a bit longer than average. The Purple mattress will last roughly seven to ten years before a replacement mattress is needed. With the Casper, frequent rotations are recommended to prevent sagging and body impressions.

Cooling/Temperature

The cube-shaped pockets in the Purple Grid allow airflow through the top layer, keeping sleepers cool and the absorption of body heat to a minimum. 

Casper, on the other hand, maintains a comfortable sleep temperature, but we wouldn’t say it’s one of the best cooling mattresses. The solid-foam base doesn’t promote much airflow, and while the comfort layers do a good job of releasing body heat, they’re no competition for the Purple’s breathable, spacious Grid. 


Purple Mattress Construction


 

 

_wp_attachment_image_alt

Cover SoftFlex Fabric
Comfort Layer  Hyper-Elastic Polymer Grid (2”)
Transitional Layer High-Density Polyfoam (3.5”)
Support Layer High-Density Polyfoam (4”)
Mattress Thickness  9.5”

Purple’s claim to fame is its proprietary Purple Grid, a Hyper-Elastic Polymer layer that conforms where the body exerts pressure but doesn’t compress anywhere else. As a result, every Purple mattress model has a “floating” effect that many love.

The stretchy polyester, viscose, and Lycra blend cover flexes along with the Purple Grid, offering even more comfort and breathability. Beneath the grid, a transitional layer of high-density polyfoam acts as a buffer to prevent sinkage. A 4” support foam layer reinforces the mattress. 


Casper Mattress Construction

Cover Polyester Fabric
Comfort Layer  AirScape Foam (1.5″)
Transitional Layer Zoned Support Memory Foam (2″)
Support Layer High-Density Polyfoam (7.5″)
Mattress Thickness  11”

The Casper Original mattress, the brand’s flagship model, is a mixed-foam mattress made with 1.5” of plush polyfoam and 2” of memory foam. Together, these layers create body-contouring and a responsive feel. The zoned memory foam means the Casper is softer at the shoulders and firmer along the body’s heavier core, creating a balanced feel.

The base layer of the Casper is a 7” layer of high-density polyfoam, which stabilizes the bed and prevents the top two layers from sagging. This support layer reinforces the edges to make it easier to get in and out of bed. The Casper has a removable, washable polyester cover made partially from recycled bottles.

Our Final Review


While the Casper and Purple are both popular bed-in-a-box mattresses, the Purple mattress is better for people who sleep hot and those with joint pain. The Casper mattress’s Zoned Support memory foam makes it a superior choice for stomach sleepers and people who like the hugging feel of an all-foam mattress. Both beds work for back sleepers and side sleepers under 230 lbs.
