Casper Mattress

Yes, I bought a mattress from the Internet: Casper Mattress.

We’d been talking about replacing our futon mattress for a while. We both really like the fact that with a futon, when the other person rolls over, it doesn’t shake you awake. I had been aware of Casper mattresses for years, because they sponsor ads on some of the podcasts I listen to. I’d told Tammy about them, and they come with a 100-day money back guarantee, so there’s not a lot of risk, and they are really well reviewed.

With her back troubles in the last few days, it seemed like the right time.

What? She didn’t post anything about the fact that she was in the hospital Sunday night? How inconsiderate! Yes, she had seizing muscles in her lower back that are getting better with painkillers, muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatories.

The mattress arrived today (Wednesday) after ordering in on Saturday.

It doesn’t look like a mattress

Rolled up and vacuum packed

Spread out and ready to unseal


First sleep on it will be tonight. We’ll see if it is worth the money.

  1. So far, so good. It’s very different from the futon we’ve had for such a long time. It provides a lot more support, and causes practically zero pressure points. I think it’s going to be good. Until the feeling of it being “different” goes away, though, it’s slightly strange.

    Sample size is too small yet, but my sleep tracking shows I’m more restful.

  2. I’m quite enjoying it. It’s firm, but not too firm. It keeps you warm, so I wonder what a hot summer’s night will be like on it. It’s a weird feeling because it doesn’t bounce like a traditional mattress, but it’s not like falling onto a sandbox like the futon. You expect to bounce when you flop on it, but it sort of squishes a little instead. It also sits much higher than the futon mattress.
