Firmness, Comfort & Support

Both mattresses have a medium firmness rating so are easily comparable. Let’s look at the pros and cons of each mattress in this department.

Simba Hybrid Mattress
Dropdown arrow
  • Due to its layer of latex, the Simba Hybrid mattress is both responsive and comfortable, and is highly breathable.
  • The layer of microcoils help to create a good level of sinkage without any pressure points being created.
  • The microcoils also help to add a little more bounce than you would normally get from a foam mattress.
  • The contour and hug of the Simba Hybrid mattress provides a great mix of sinkage, contour and support.
  • Lighter weight sleepers may find that the Simba Hybrid mattress is a little too firm for them, as the mattress will not ‘sink’ as much to contour round them.
  • Simba’s mattresses are ideal for couples of differing weight, as there is no discernable ‘roll’ towards each other whilst sleeping. However, the mattress can dip on one side over time.
Casper Original Mattress
Dropdown arrow
  • The Casper does a good job of keeping sleepers cool and comfortable, whilst still providing comfort.
  • Softer top layers than some mattresses, meaning that there is a little more sinkage. Some sleepers will obviously prefer this!
  • Good support in all sleeping positions, but has much softer edge support than many mattresses.
  • Could feel unsupportive if you are of a heavier build.
  • The synthetic smell that is common with all beds in a box takes longer to dissipate than some mattresses.
  • If you find the sinkage of the Essential and Original a little too much, consider the Hybrid which offers a slightly firmer feel.

Simba vs Casper other factors

Both companies come with a10-year guarantee. Casper offer a 30 night trial period, whereas Simba offer 200 nights. If you’re not satisfied, both will offer a full refund. You can also apply for up to 12 months interest free credit to pay for the mattress, and there’s free one-day delivery to most of the UK.

The verdict - Casper or Simba mattress?

Both mattresses offer appealing factors, but here are some points to consider when deciding which best meets your requirements.

We'd recommend the Simba Hybrid Mattress if:

  • You want a medium to medium firm feel.
  • You want a hybrid mattress. The Simba uses latex, microcoils, memory foam and a 7-zoned support foam. All this makes for a responsive mattress with good support.
  • You sleep on your side or back and want a mattress that responds to pressure in a faster manner than most foam mattresses.
  • You want good edge support. Because of the extra layer of foam around the perimeter of the coils, the Simba maintains its support around the edges.

We'd recommend the Casper Original Mattress if:

  • You don’t mind a lack of edge support and want more supportive sinkage than other all foam mattresses.
  • You’re a warm sleeper and want a mattress that is particularly good at absorbing body heat to keep sleepers cool.
  • You want a mattress with little motion transfer, that’s virtually silent when bearing weight – making it a great choice for lighter sleepers.
  • You’re of a light to medium build as those of a heavier build tend to find the mattress too soft.
