Insomnia, when untreated, can be quite dangerous. It is as the wise say, “Prevention is better than cure.”

The best way to prevent insomnia would be eliminate the reasons that disturb your sleep. If your mattress is one of them, and you wake up with aches and pains, then you need a different mattress.

But, which one do you buy?

In a market flooded with several mattresses, which come with several features, which one do you choose?

That’s a tough question to answer. Here’s our review on two of the brands in the market: Purple and Casper. This may help you find an answer.


What are Casper and Purple?

The Casper mattress was known as the “Queen of mattresses” for quite some time. These mattresses are designed for comfort, support and to give you the feeling of “sleeping on the cloud.”
The Purple mattress’ patented hyper-elastic polymer, used in its mattress, and its grid-like design, help you sleep cooler and relieve pressure efficiently.



Both the brands have some similarities between them and quite a few differences. This comparison between the Casper and Purple mattress may help people make decisions on buying a mattress.

Similarities between the Casper and Purple

Both the Casper and the Purple mattresses are 9.5″ thick. Both the mattresses can be ordered online. Both have the same warranty and trial period.

Both mattresses are made in the U.S. Both companies use durable, high quality materials in their manufacturing process. Both of them process hassle-free refunds if you do not like their mattress, and both of them are Certi-Pur certified.

But the similarity ends there. Let us look at what makes these mattresses different.


The difference between both mattresses starts from the height. While the Casper mattresses have 9.5″ foam height, the Purple mattresses range from 11″ to 13″.

Casper Mattress Size Dimensions Weight
Twin 39″x75″x10″ 44 lbs
Twin XL 39″x80″x10″ 46 lbs
Full 54″x75″x10″ 60 lbs
Queen 60″x80″x10″ 71 lbs
King 76″x80″x10″ 91 lbs
Cal King 72″x84″x10″ 90 lbs
Purple Mattress Size Dimensions* Purple2 Weight Purple3 Weight Purple4 Weight

King 76″x80″x11″ 149 lbs 176 lbs 204 lbs
Cal King 72″x84″x11″ 148 lbs 175 lbs 202 lbs

*Purple3 mattress height is 12″ & Purple4 mattress height is 13″.

Firmness Scale

The Casper mattress may fall in the range of medium firmness. This is between 6-6.5 on a 10 pointer scale, with 1 being soft, and 10 being firm. This is a combination of both plush and firm, ideal for most sleepers. However, sleepers who are heavy may face more sinkage in a Casper mattress.

The Purple mattress may also be in the same medium firmness range. However, the Purple Smart Comfort Grid has a feel of its own. It has a knack to keep your spine aligned, no matter what position you sleep in, thereby relieving pressure points.

  • Casper Mattress Firmness – Medium 50%
  • Purple Mattress Firmness – Medium 62.5%
  • Industry Average 62.5%
  • Soft
  • Medium
  • Very Firm

The Purple may have a slight edge over the Casper in this aspect, as it is bouncier, more responsive, and its unique design can help in contouring without sinkage.


The Casper and the Purple mattresses have a few similarities, but many more differences.

The Casper mattress is for people who like the traditional feel, along with a hugging feeling. This mattress is good for both stomach and back sleepers. It is also priced much lower than the Purple mattress.

The Purple mattress is ideal for sleepers of all types. It is also a good mattress for people who like a bouncy and responsive mattress. This mattress is also ideal for sleepers who are heavy. This gives them better pressure relief. This mattress also sleeps cooler than most other mattresses on the market. You can choose one of these mattresses based on what you expect from your mattress.
