Do we recommend it? Probably not.
For who it is: The Casper Wave Hybrid, Casper’s most expensive mattress, was meant to appeal to people who sleep in any position and it seems likely that the guarantee will apply to anyone weighing less than 200 pounds. We tried the previous version of the All-Foam Wave in 2019. If the updated model (introduced in 2020) is similar to what the company says it should address thresholds of all positions as well. The Wave is only sold through partner retailers, including Amazon and Wayfair.
How it feels: The Wave Hybrid feels medium firm and lands somewhere between the firmer Original and Original Hybrid and the softer Nova Hybrid. I found the Wave Hybrid foamy and yet resilient. We haven’t tried the updated version of the All-Foam Wave, and helpful online feedback was barely there at the time we looked, but we expect it to feel just a tad firmer than the Wave Hybrid.
What we like: The foam corrugation packs five layers in 13 inches. Like the original, it is topped with a dense polyurethane foam with no memory foam. Instead of memory foam directly underneath, there is a layer of synthetic SonoCore latex on a base layer of poly foam. The Wave Hybrid has a similar structure, but instead of the foam it has coils.
When I slept on the Wave Hybrid, my spine felt comfortably aligned, whether I was on my back or on my stomach. Although the general feeling was far from the fluffiness of the Nova, my shoulders and hips felt full. Due to the coils and maybe the synthetic latex, which felt more elastic than memory foam or poly foam, the mattress almost made me bounce forward as I moved from side to side. Although I felt the bed bounce as my son jumped on it, I noticed little movement when he or my husband turned around at night. The edge support is an improvement over the original hybrid and is somewhat similar to that of the full-foam original: I could sleep on the edge without falling off, but it’s not ideal for sitting on.
The Wave offers an unusual sleeping experience, although we would only recommend it if you don’t sleep happily with anything else and also have a very flexible budget (see “What we don’t like” below).
What we don’t like: The Casper Wave Hybrid costs around $ 2,600 when not for sale. It’s expensive, and you can find a bed made from more durable materials for a lot less. For example, the Leesa Hybrid and Tempur-Adapt Medium Hybrid, our picks for the best hybrid mattresses, each have around 1,000 coils in a queen. In response to our request, Casper remained vague, telling us that his hybrids were “over 600”. The Leesa Hybrid, Tempur-Adapt, and Loom & Leaf (our pick for the best high-end foam mattress) also use denser memory foam (at least 4 pounds per cubic foot as opposed to 3.5 pounds in the Casper Wave). . If latex is what draws you to the Casper Wave, you can get more latex for less money at Zenhaven, our favorite latex foam mattress, and (if on sale) our innerspring selection, the Charles P. Rogers. These mattresses use Talalay latex, which is usually more breathable and pliable compared to the synthetic latex used in the Wave. Of course, all of these recommended mattresses don’t feel like the Casper Wave Hybrid (and, as we would expect, the All-Foam Wave). So if you really like the feel of the Wave and can easily afford it, it may still be worth the investment for you.
The Casper Wave has bells and whistles that make our eyes roll. Casper calls this mattress the best for people with back pain thanks to the fourth “zoning” layer, which has special areas for shoulder pads and gel cups that are placed everywhere for support. However, we are skeptical of how meaningful these traits actually are – they may be unnecessary or irrelevant, especially if your body is not precisely aligned with these zones due to your height or sleeping position.
