Hi Nynygirl,

Thanks for the update ... and I'm glad to hear that your Tuft & Needle / latex topper combination is working out so well for you :)

Hi all! I'm new to the forums and starting here has been helpful already as I'm shopping for a new mattress and considering T&N and Casper (10 inch Queen size for both). I am drawn to T&N for the lower price but worried that it will be too firm for me and wondering if it is worth it to pay the additional $200 to try Casper, which sounds like they have a good thing going in terms of comfort + support with the top latex layer.

I currently sleep on a 5 in Ikea foam matress (www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10272316/) that is listed as medium firm. Does anyone have experience with this type of mattress who could compare it to the feeling of either T&N or Casper? Thanks!

Hi katelyng,

Welcome to the Mattress Forum! :)

The best place to start your research is the mattress shopping tutorial here which has all the basic information, steps, and guidelines that can help you make the best possible choice.

There is also more about the new "breed" of mattresses that only offer a single firmness choice (including Tuft & Needle and Casper) in post #3 here that can help you compare them.

The Casper has 1.5" of synthetic latex as part of the comfort layer but the upper layers of a mattress are primarily for comfort and pressure relief and "feel" not for support which primarily comes from the firmer polyfoam support core in their mattress.

There is also more about the most important parts of the "value" of a mattress purchase in post #13 here that can help you make more meaningful quality/value comparisons between mattresses.

As Nynygirl77 mentioned 3 posts earlier ... I would also keep in mind that for the $250 difference between them you could purchase a 2" latex topper on top of the Tuft & Needle as well.

I currently sleep on a 5 in Ikea foam matress (www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10272316/) that is listed as medium firm. Does anyone have experience with this type of mattress who could compare it to the feeling of either T&N or Casper? Thanks!


I would keep in mind that there is no "standard" definition or consensus of opinions for firmness ratings and different manufacturers can rate their mattresses very differently than others. Different people can also have very different perceptions of firmness and softness compared to others as well and a mattress that is firm for one person may feel like "medium" for someone else or even "soft" for someone else depending on their body type, sleeping style, physiology, what they are used to, and their individual sensitivity and perceptions. This is all relative to each person's perceptions and the only way to know how firm or soft a mattress feels to you (regardless of how firm or soft it may feel for someone else) will be based on your own personal testing or sleeping experience.

Don't forget tha the Casper latex layer is only 13ild. The combo of our 2 inch topper is 2 differnt density because at diet we did not know which one we wanted. Lol turns out to was a great combo for 2 inced ild . Better than the Casper.

Thank you everyone for your input. We decided to go ahead and get the Casper today. I'm really excited and hope it works out for us. If not, there's always Tuft & Needle. :)

I personally found the Casper to be more "bouncy" and lively, the Tuft and Needle more "solid" and not lively. Both on the firm end of medium-firm, but in different ways and hard to describe...


So far, that description fits my opinion as well.

And what happens if you both prefer the same mattress- who will get stuck in the less desired one until the replacement arrives :)


yeah, you already know the answer to that one...

Here's the latest on our Casper. The first few weeks of sleeping on the Casper were terrible for me. There was a major pressure point at my hip, so much so that it took me significantly longer to fall asleep at night. Beyond that I just wasn't sleeping well. On the plus side of all this for the first few weeks I had very little back pain. However, as time went on my back pain returned.

All this time my husband never had a single complaint about the Casper. Because my issues with it were so significant I returned the mattress.

The return process was very easy and Casper's customer service was polite and helpful. The only hiccup came when I didn't know that I needed to send them a copy of the donation receipt. When my refund still hadn't been processed after a week a quick call to Casper fixed the situation.

Now moving on to T&N.

Hi shadowfox606.

Thanks for the update and for your comments and feedback ... I appreciate it :)

I'm sorry to hear that your Casper mattress didn't work out well for both of you but the good news is that you had the foresight to purchase an online mattress with a great return policy so that there was little risk in trying it other than the time you spend testing it and returning/donating it.

I hope that the Tuft & Needle turns out to be a better match for both of you and I'm looking forward to your comments and feedback when you receive it and have had a chance to sleep on it as well.
