So, I’ve moved a lot. From Atlanta to Chicago to New York to Florida to Texas to Los Angeles….and now, to Costa Mesa! With all of that moving comes many experiences with mattress shopping. I’ve been in countless mattress stores and carried one too many twin, full and queen beds up one too many staircases. Long story short, shopping for + moving mattresses are two things I do NOT enjoy. Until I found Casper! Keep reading.
If you haven’t heard of Casper, or seen its crazy cool packaging, listen up! Casper is, essentially, a bed in a box. This queen bed you see in my photos fit in that blue and white striped box. Even after seeing it with my own eyes, I’m still left wondering…how did they fit that mattress in that box?!
While I was super skeptical of buying a mattress that came in a box, one that I couldn’t test or feel out, I was not going to lug my old box spring mattress into a moving truck. So, I decided to give Casper a try. When it arrived, I asked Drew “that’s it? isn’t there anything else we need to set it up?”. To my surprise, we pulled out an airtight bag from the box and unwrapped it. The crumple of foam totally expanded and rose into a full size queen mattress right before my eyes! It was crazy!
** Is this one of those things that only “adults” get excited about?! My sixteen year old self is laughing at how stoked I am on my new mattress. **
I’ve been in my new place for about a month now, and I can honestly say I’ve been sleeping like a baby! I’m a side sleeper, so I like a bit of support that still has a gentle feel. Drew sleeps on his back and likes a firmer mattress. Somehow we both love the Casper. What kind of sorcery is this brand using?! 🙂
Since I snapped these pictures before I unpacked anything else in my new place, I placed my Casper on the floor. Once I bed frame arrived, I used a Casper foundation to raise up the mattress, and covered the bed with Casper sheets! So soft and breathable.
** Casper recommends keeping your mattress safe + supported by not placing it directly on the floor. You can check out their foundations HERE. **
