For the meaty details, continue reading below.
As mentioned above, this is a battle of the OGs. For this comparison, we have the Original Casper Mattress, T&N Original Mattress, and Leesa Original Mattress.
Inspecting the Casper Mattress construction, its cover is made of 100% polyester material. This is thick but soft enough to give you a cozy feeling. The cover encases the mattress well and keeps it in shape for years. It can even return to its original shape when pulled. This means that you don’t have to worry about its fabric bunching under you whenever you shift in bed. Underneath this cover is the 1.5 inches latex foam top layer. This foam responds quickly to any applied pressure on its surface. Thus, it can make you feel a little bounce that blends well with its soft comfort. This layer also allows a small amount of sinkage that wraps your body in a hug. Next is the pressure-relieving layer which has a 4 pounds density. This 1.5 inches layer is made of memory foam which responds slowly to pressure and eliminates the feeling of being stuck. For its next layer, the Casper Mattress has 1.5 inches and 2.5 pounds density foam. This polyfoam provides a firmer layer which also adds bounce but with consistency and smooth control. For the final layer, it has thick poly foam that has 1.8 pounds density. This is firmer compared with the layers above since it acts as the base foam which keeps the bed’s shape.
Despite being an all-foam mattress, the Casper Mattress has an impressive feel. It has a medium-firm feel which provides just enough softness and firmness. On a scale of 1 to 10, we’d say that its score falls under 5.5 which appeals to a wide range of sleepers.
When the temperature is concerned, the Casper Mattress has a breathable cover which promotes better airflow. Its open-cell design offers a cooler sleep every night which goes well with its latex top layer. Since its latex foam is placed on top of the memory foam, the mattress doesn’t feel too hot like the usual memory foam mattresses.
The Casper Mattress is indeed a supportive bed. Its layers of foams provide a cozy hug that relieves pressure points. It also features Zone support which provides extra support under your hips and shoulders. Thus, it slowly contours to the body to provide a soft but supportive haven. Since its thick base is also denser, it increases the bed’s entire durability. You can also rely on its edge support which is pretty firm. You can lie on your side or back near the edge without feeling as if you’ll slide off the bed. Some compression may be felt but it only exists in the soft top layers. Most importantly, it can support various types of sleeping styles.
Tuft & Needle Mattress
Compared with the Casper Mattress, this T&N Original Mattress has fewer layers of foams. Starting with the cover, this mattress has a blend of woven Tactel and polyester fabric. These materials make its stretchy and faster to dry with Tactel as a replacement for cotton. Under its cover, it has the top layer which is 3 inches thick. This comfort layer polyfoam has 2.9 pounds density which is very responsive to pressure and bouncy. Its next material is a thick T&N Adaptive Foam base layer which holds the whole structure together. This polyfoam has a 1.8 pounds density which allows it to provide a tough foundation. Also, this thick layer prevents the top layer from sinking too much under pressure. Instead, it reinforces the top layer to contour to unique body curves for a more comfortable sleep.
Just like the Casper Mattress, this T&N Original Mattress also has a medium-firm feel. On a scale of 1 to 10, we’d say that its rate is about the same as the former. But compared with other mattresses on the market with more layers of materials, it doesn’t contain a middle transition layer. So instead of keeping the pressure up to the transition layer, it goes straight to the firm base of the mattress. Guess what, this construction makes the mattress feel more comfortable as you stay longer in bed. Thus, you can get all the body-contouring you need from the top layer without sinking too much. Thus, your back can remain properly aligned too during sleep.
The T&N Original Mattress also features cooling elements. First, it contains graphite which absorbs heat while your sleep and pushes it out of the mattress. Second, it has cooling ceramic gel beads that can wick away heat as well as moisture. The gel beads draw heat out while its open-cell support foam provides a breathable foundation. Lastly, it has a T&N Adaptive Foam which is the brand’s exclusively designed foam. It is not just durable and supportive; it is also breathable to ensure your longer and better sleep.
This mattress offers pressure relief on different body key points thanks to its T&N Adaptive Foam. Thus, this foam provides a perfect balance of support that can match different sleeping styles. It can even keep your spine properly aligned while you sleep. When it comes to edge support, you don’t have to worry about rolling off the bead. It has consistent construction and high-quality materials support to ensure your safety especially if you share your bed.
If the Casper and T&N mattresses impressed you, let’s see if you can say the same with this Leesa Original Mattress. First, it has a seamless cover that is made from gray twill fabric that is soft when touched. Underneath this cover, it has a body-conforming foam layer that can wrap your body in a comfortable hug. This Avena foam functions and feels like latex foam except for the fact that it is more durable to last longer. Next is the memory foam layer which is designed to be the recovery layer. This layer of memory foam can also adjust and contour to your body for a more comfortable sleeping position. For the thickest and final layer of this Leesa Original Mattress, it has a supportive and durable foam base. This bottom layer is the lifesaver for all kinds of sleepers and their sleeping styles.
The Leesa Original Mattress is a medium-firm bed. However, it feels a bit softer compared with the Casper and T&N mattress. Regardless, you can enjoy its balanced softness and firmness, especially if you sleep mostly on your back. It has a consistent firmness that you can feel across its entire surface. Thus, you don’t have to worry about sinking too much in the middle or anywhere around your bed. Its comfort layer can also give you a little bounce which is present in the previous mattresses above. Thus, it can still give you a slight feel of traditional mattresses you want without its springs poking your body. You can even sleep on any position with or without a bedmate/partner in bed.
Compared with the previous mattresses, this Leesa Original Mattress doesn’t have many layers to combat the heat. However, it has a stylish and breathable that encases the mattress. It also has an efficient top layer that is known for its breathability. Together with the cover, this layer promotes better airflow through the mattress to avoid night sweats. Of course, this also means that you can avoid an uncomfortable feeling that can disturb your sleep.
The Leesa Original Mattress maximizes its multiple layers to provide optimum support to almost all kinds of sleepers. It doesn’t have active cooling gel technology but it has pressure-relieving support that can help ease your body aches. Together with its two thin foam layers, its foam base adds to its support system to ensure its durability. Its overall construction also ensures that it fits almost all shapes and sizes of customers.
Since the mattresses we picked for this post are made of foams, we’re going to break down their differences now. Looking at their original prices, we noticed that the Casper Mattress has the highest price. Casper’s mattress costs between $595 (Twin) to $1,195 (California King) while Leesa’s mattress costs between $499 (Twin) and $1,049 (California King). Meanwhile, T&N’s mattress costs between $350 (Twin) and $750 (California King).
Next is the safety component. Tuft & Needle is the only brand among the three that offers a mattress with eco-friendly materials. The T&N Original Mattress contains natural graphite and innovative design to reduce the number of cooling chemicals in your bed. Compared with the two other mattresses, the T&N mattress also has the least number of layers which is three only. When it comes to height and weight, Casper is the thickest mattress in this post. It’s a 12 inches foam mattress while the T&N and Leesa mattresses are both 10 inches thick only. No wonder it also has the heaviest option since its mattress weighs between 56 pounds (Twin), 102 pounds (California King), and 104 (King), and. Leesa has the most lightweight mattress which weighs between 45 pounds (Twin), and 92 pounds (California King)
