Today, we’ll be doing a side-by-side comparison between two favorite brands that you can find in the local mattress stores in Orange County. Hopefully, you’ll be able to get an idea of which of these might be the right fit for you or a family member. The mattresses in question are the Casper Essential model and the Purple standard model.
First, let’s examine some of the ways that these two are alike. They both come with a 100-day trial period standard. They are very similar in thickness, with the Casper at 8.5 inches, while the Purple is 9.5. They both are suitable for side sleepers, and they each have responsive surfaces. Both of them are designed without coils, and they each have three layers.
Now, on to some of the differences. The most significant difference is cost, Orange County. Regardless of which mattress stores you visit, it is likely that you will see the Purple at a higher price than the Casper, so if money is a factor for you, give that some thought. Casper Essential can, therefore, be considered more of a “budget mattress.” Purple, on the other hand, seems suitable for more sleep styles, so it has that going for it. Casper Essential is composed of memory foam, while Purple uses a hyper-elastic polymer in the top layer. Casper Essential is also slightly softer.
With Casper you get a soft polyknit cover. Durable poly foam makes up the 4.5-inch support layer. In the center is 1.5 inches of responsive memory foam. The top layer is 2 inches of bouncy fusion foam, which is breathable.
In the case of Purple, you get a cover that is made of polyester, viscose, and polyester-lycra. The top is a 2-inch layer of polymer that is hyper-elastic. It’s cool to the touch, and it’s supportive and pressure-relieving. The middle is 3.5 inches of polyurethane foam, and the base is 4 inches of denser foam.
In conclusion, Orange County, the Purple is probably a more upscale model, and the price reflects that. If you are more budget conscious, then Casper might be for you. You can find both of these in your local mattress stores, so try them out and get the feel of each before you make that decision.
