Two similar mattresses both aiming to provide a bed fit for the average sleeper—our Casper vs. Yogabed comparison pits the two against each other to show that sometimes it is the little things that matter.

Casper has been a leader in the sleeping industry since 2014, and their products have taken the online mattress world by storm.

Yogabed, inspired by the benefits of yoga, tries to break up the all-foam field with some newer proprietary foams.

Comparing Construction (Materials & Quality)

Casper Construction

Casper’s all-foam makeup is vacuum sealed, placed in a box, and delivered to you. Surrounded by a polyester gray and white removable cover, the 12-inch mattress is constructed of four layers.

layers of casper
  • The top is a breathable, 1.5-inch foam designed with open-cell technology to improve airflow throughout the night.
  • The second layer consists of highly dense memory foam. Its 1.5 inches relieves pressure and adds comfort.
  • The third layer is a 1.5-inch Zoned Support™ transitional layer focused on the hips and shoulders. There is a thick stripe of firmer polyfoam in the middle of the mattress under the hips, while softer polyfoam comforts the shoulders, aiding spine alignment and softening those pressure points.
  • The base is the thickest and most dense, at 7.5 inches. It adds durability and gives the product its foundation.

Yogabed Construction

Like its competitor, Yogabed is comprised of multiple layers of various foams, then compressed and shipped in a box.

Its heat-regulating THERMACOOL™ cover has a 360-degree zipper for easy removal and is both machine washable and replaceable, a unique feature that few brands provide. Four layers make up this 10-inch bed.

yogabed layers
  • The top constitutes 1 inch of Instant Response YogaFoam™ that adds some bounce and minimizes the memory-foam feel.
  • The second layer, using YogaGel™ technology, keeps things cool in its 2-inch, gel-infused, open-cell memory foam.
  • The third layer is the support system of the mattress. Five inches of high-density foam, this section provides a substructure while still managing to avert heat.
  • The base adds 2 inches to the support of the third layer. The dense polyfoam gives a foundation to the bed for durability and sturdiness.

Comparing Firmness (Support & Feel)

These brands are pretty similar, considering they are both all-foam, and both score in the medium range of firmness. This generally provides good support for many sleepers and fits the needs of most sleeping positions and body types well. On our comfort (firmness) scale out of 10, with 1 being the softest, we scored Casper a 6 and Yogabed a 6.5.

Casper’s unique Zoned Support™ aims to offer comfort for all sleeping positions with its varying levels of firmness. Acknowledging that most sleepers need more support in the hips and softness in the shoulders, it molds to the average person’s needs while providing a softer surface.

Yogabed feels less like a typical all-foam mattress due to its Instant Response YogaFoam™ that gives the bed a quick response. It is rated slightly more firm because of its thinner top layer, allowing an average-weighted user to feel the denser sublayers more than its competitor.

Most sleepers, however, should feel comfortably supported on both mattresses, as they score in the medium range of firmness and provide good support and pressure relief, though Casper may be slightly more versatile.

Comparing Sinkage and Bounce

When laying on Casper, you should notice a gentle cradle. The soft layers should hug your body, and although not as detectable as a memory mattress, you may sink a little. Repositioning should not be difficult due to the top layer of open-cell foam.

Yogabed will provide a minimal cradle; rather than feeling like you are sleeping in the bed, you may feel like you are sleeping on top of it. The mattress provides a good bounce, especially for a foam bed, and repositioning should be a breeze, slightly more so than on its competitor.

Comparing Motion Transfer

Most all-foam options score well in motion transfer; Casper and Yogabed are no different. On both mattresses, you will feel minimal motion. This is important for light sleepers with restless partners or those who sleep with their kids. Movement across the surface should not be particularly noticeable.

Comparing Edge Support

Both products perform similarly in edge support. Although the bed will compress when laying on the edge, you should be comfortably supported and not feel as if you will roll out of bed. Due to their more supportive and dense foundational layers, both outperform the average bed-in-a-box in this category.

Should I Buy Casper or Yogabed?

Casper and Yogabed are pretty similar in make-up, as they are both all-foam; however, each have some individual features that each sleeper may find advantageous.

We Would Recommend Buying Casper if You are Looking for:

  • Pressure relief in hips and shoulders. Its Zoned Support™ really shines in this aspect. The variable firmness level will especially please stomach and side sleepers, as they usually need more support in these areas.
  • A softer option. Laying on the surface, you should feel more sinkage when sleeping, and the soft top layer provides a gentle cradle.
  • Versatility. This bed is exceptional in fitting the average sleeper’s needs; most body types and sleeping positions will be well-supported.

We Would Recommend Buying Yogabed if You are Looking for:

  • A cool night’s rest. THERMACOOL™ technology wicks moisture and regulates heat all night long.
  • A washable cover. Do not hesitate to drink that glass of wine in bed; its unique cotton-poly blend cover is removable, machine-washable, and replaceable.
  • Ease in repositioning. It is a little more bouncy than your usual foam bed, making repositioning and middle-of-the-night adjustments easy.

Final Thoughts


Both are excellent options and score similarly in edge support, motion transfer, and only slightly differ in firmness and sinkage levels.
