Now that you already know what to expect from these mattress brands, let’s proceed to the details below.
Casper and Leesa are both great mattress brands and there’s no question about that. However, every sleeper has different needs and satisfaction levels. So, we will give you all the details about our chosen mattress models from each brand. For this comparison, we chose the Hybrid Wave Mattress from Casper and the Hybrid Mattress from Leesa.
The Casper Hybrid Wave Mattress has a 13 inches profile that is pretty thick. The Hybrid Wave Mattress is covered in a soft and breathable wool fabric that prevents humidity in the mattress. Now, let’s look under its cover which contains 5 layers of premium foams, shall we? Under its cover is the inviting 1 inch top layer which is velvety soft supreme comfort foam. This is also called the comfort flo foam which provides the first layer of softness to your body. Next is the 1.5 inches latex foam with a ventilated and unique design. We’re talking about its entire body filled with holes. Next to this is the 1.5 inches pressure-relieving memory foam which is designed to absorb your weight. Underneath this layer is high-quality foam which has a high resilience and polymer network. This foam has targeted gel pods that provide active support to your body. Exclusive for the hybrid version only, the Hybrid Wave Mattress also has durable support foam that serves as a zoned transition layer. Meanwhile, its base layer consists of pocket coil springs that lie on a thin polyfoam layer.
When it comes to firmness, the Casper Hybrid Wave Mattress has a medium-firm feel. On a scale of 1 to 10, we can say that it has 6.5 ratings with 1 as the softest and 10 as the hardest. However, this doesn’t mean that it’s automatically too firm for those who prefer a softer mattress. Depending on your sleeping style and weight, it can feel a little softer or firmer. For instance, it might feel firmer if you’re on your stomach, or back and softer if you’re on your side.
Some of the most important features of this hybrid mattress are its cooling solutions. This includes its latex foam which provides a natural cooling factor to the mattress with its perforated design. At the same time, its top layer improves the overall ventilation of the Casper Hybrid Wave Mattress. Even its individually encased coils help its other layers maximize the amount of airflow through the mattress.
Casper’s Hybrid Wave Mattress is one of the most long-lasting options on the market. This is thanks to its combination of durable materials which include its latex, memory foams, coils, and other foam layers. Thus, it’s worth investing in it since its support is capable of lasting for many years. In addition, you can take advantage of its memory foam which can absorb your weight. At the same time, it provides relief by transferring the pressure away from your body’s key area. Its targeted gel pods layer is also there to provide active full-body support while aligning your spine. Of course, its coil spring system provides the majority of the supporting role so the mattress can hold even heavier sleepers. When it comes to edge support, it got that enhanced support that is a little firm. This makes it easier to get in and out of the bed, especially in the middle of the night.
The 11 inches Leesa Hybrid Mattress consists of multiple layers which include various foam layers and springs. So, let’s start with its fabric which is also called the hybrid cover. As expected from Leesa’s signature cover, this hybrid cover has a seamless white and gray design. Aside from its simple but appealing look, it has that soft texture that feels great with or without some sheets. But don’t get carried away too much. We still recommend you to cover it with sheets. Taking a peek under its cover, its first layer of material is 1.5 inches premium foam. This comfort layer has 3 pounds density and 13 IFD. This responsive foam creates that soft bounce whenever you want to while it lets your body sink into its soft embrace. Underneath it is 1.5 inches body-contouring memory foam which has 4 pounds density and 12 IFD. Its next layers of materials are called the quick response layer. This includes the 6 inches 14.5 gauge pocket spring system that has perimeter edge support. This spring system is encased in 2 layers of 1 inch core support foam. The first foam has 2 pounds density and 30 IFD while the core support foam base has 1.8 pounds density and 32 IFD.
The Leesa Hybrid Mattress has a medium-firm comfort level which allows it to provide advanced comfort and support for back and side sleepers. Since it has thick layers of foams, stomach sleepers can also enjoy its firmness. So, it’s a slightly firm bed with a solid pocket spring system and soft foams. Compared with other hybrid mattresses with soft foam layers, it doesn’t feel fluffy since it feels more like you’re floating. But just like the Casper mattress, its firmness level may also feel different depending on your size and weight. The heavier you are the softer the mattress may feel especially if you’re a heavy side sleeper.
The temperature (hotness or coldness) of bed while you sleep can be affected by different factors. It can be because of its firmness level, room temperature, or the materials used in its construction. As for the construction of this hybrid mattress, it uses its pocket spring system to increase the airflow through the mattress. Its coils can’t actively cool you down but it can push out the heat away from the mattress. It also has its premium foam layer which contains holes to enhance the mattress breathability.
One of the best things about having a hybrid mattress is its versatility. This Leesa mattress contains a body contouring foam that relieves pressure points. Thus, it can take care of your shoulders, back, and hips while you sleep. It also has an edge to edge support that is courtesy by its over 1,000 spring coils. Thus, you don’t have to worry too much about falling whenever you roll on the edge of the bed. Its pocket spring layer increases the overall durability and stability of the mattress. It also reduces the motion transfer across the mattress which single and couple sleepers can enjoy.
Now that we’re done with the details above, let’s go down to their differences. The first we noticed is the price department. Casper’s Hybrid Wave Mattresses cost between $1,545 (Twin) and $2,895 (California King). Meanwhile, Leesa’s Hybrid Mattresses cost between $749 (Twin) and $1,649 (California King). Clearly, the hybrid mattress from Casper costs more than the Leesa mattress. The second thing we noticed is the weight department. Leesa’s mattresses weigh between 75 pounds (Twin) and 142 pounds (King and California King). Meanwhile, Casper’s mattresses weigh between 68 pounds (Twin) and 143 pounds (King and California King). Whether you prefer a heavy or a lightweight mattress, you now have an idea on which brand to pick.
