|Customer Satisfaction||Based on data collection, this is an overall customer sentiment regarding the Casper and Leesa mattresses.||72%||76%||Leesa mattresses earned an above-average rating for foam-based mattresses, while the Casper ranks about average.|
|Durability||The average mattress will perform for at least seven years before it needs to be replaced||Good||Good||Casper and Leesa owners both claim that the mattresses show minimal indentations or sagging, though both companies are less than five years old and long-term lifespan has not been accurately assessed.|
|Motion Isolation||Foam-based mattresses are designed to minimize motion and isolate it from other areas of the sleep surface, which can cut down on nighttime disruptions.||Fair||Very Good||Casper mattresses isolate some motion, but our reports indicate that Leesa mattresses minimize and isolate motion to a much more significant extent.|
|Sex||Foam-based mattresses are less responsive by design, and may not be as suitable for sex as innerspring or hybrid models.||Fair||Fair||Like most mattresses with memory foam layers in their comfort systems, Casper and Leesa models are less responsive and considered not as good for sex.|
|Conforming||Foam-based mattresses conform closely to sleeper’s bodies, which can help align the spine, target pressure points, and alleviate back pain||Good||Very Good||Both the Casper and the Leesa conform to sleeper’s bodies and alleviate pressure, but the Leesa scores higher in this category.|
|Temperature Neutrality||Foam retains more body heat than other materials, and foam mattress owners often ‘sleep hot’ as a result.||Fair||Fair||The Casper and the Leesa have both been criticized for retaining high levels of body heat and sleeping relatively warm.|
|Off-gassing||Some mattresses emit particles when they are unpackaged, accompanied by unpleasant ‘off-gassing’ smells that can last for days.||Fair||Fair||Moderate off-gassing odors have been reported with both the Casper and the Leesa mattresses.|
|Edge Support||Because of their construction, foam-based mattresses often provide little to no edge support and may sink prematurely in areas of the bed where people tend to sit.||Fair||Poor||The Casper and the Leesa have both received complaints regarding weak edge support, though Leesa owners report more sinkage at the edges where people sit.|
|Noise||Foam-based mattresses create little to no noise, due to their lack of springs, coils, and other metal components||Excellent||Excellent||Both the Casper and the Leesa are virtually silent, which is typical of foam-based mattress models.|
|Ease of Moving and Rotating||All mattresses are relatively heavy when it comes to moving and rotating, but some are heavier and more unwieldy than others.||Very Good||Very Good||A Queen-size Leesa weighs 67 pounds while a Queen-size Casper weighs 82 pounds; both are below-average compared to other mattress types, and about average for foam-based models.|
