Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

It is made from a dense foam foundation core and one layer of extra soft AirScape perforated breathable foam, which will offer to all its consumer’s gentle soft feel, and it will conform to your body to relieve the pressure.
As far as types of sleepers are concerned, I’d recommend this bed for back and stomach sleepers, who will likely enjoy its firm support.
Great for lighter people and children
The Casper Element’s cover is soft and thin and should not affect the overall feel of the mattress.
This all-foam construction really excels in the motion transfer category because of its ability to absorb and isolate movement and keep it from traveling to other parts of the bed.
The top comfort layer of this mattress is called AirScape because it’s perforated to allow for better airflow than your typical memory foam
Ideal for individuals with sharp pressure points
Its 2 foam layers create a balanced feel that falls between sleeping “on” and “in” a mattress.
It really shines for side sleepers, since the conforming polyfoam comfort layer cushions the shoulders and hips.

What reviewers didn't like

Though the firm support could do wonders for back and stomach sleepers, it’s not likely to work for side sleepers who need a softer structure for pressure relief at the shoulders and hips.
May not be best for sleepers with a lot of specific needs in a mattress
Larger people who weigh over 250 lbs might feel like the mattress is even firmer as they press right into the foam support layer.
For heavy people, the Element is not ideal.
People who want to use their mattress for a long time may prefer more durable construction
The Element scored a 6.5/10 for durability, meaning it may not hold up well for 10+ years of use.
For stomach sleepers, it just isn’t firm enough.
