Sleep is such a personal thing. Everyone does it differently. I’ve got my sleeping ritual – firm mattress, one pillow, my right hand under it, my left above, with a light duvet covering half my body. My feet can’t be covered, and I can’t have socks on. And even though everyone sleeps so differently it’s astonishing that Casper was able to develop a mattress that is so universally adored, despite everyone liking their mattress a little different. That’s because the Casper mattress finds middle ground with their Zoned Support technology – treating your shoulders and hips differently for deeper comfort and better alignment- creating a balance between a soft and firm mattress in all the right places.
I wasn’t always a big believer in having the right sleeping ritual (or the right mattress) but after having my Casper for over 100 nights of sleep it blows my mind thinking about some of the awful things I used to sleep on. To put things into perspective, I used to be that guy that was always going for the cheapest option – especially when it comes to big-ticket items. My first apartment I slept on this AWFUL futon- I ended up buying some extra stuffing to make it more comfortable (that’s how bad it was). When I first moved to Toronto I bought the cheapest mattress I could find. Yeah, it was a “pillow top” but let me tell you – that thing was flat in months. My sleep was getting worse and worse, back pain was slowly creeping in and asking people to spend the night was borderline embarrassing.
So when I moved into this new place I said to myself that I was going to take better care of myself and of my body and I decided to invest in a much better mattress – and let me tell you, this thing fucking works. When I was in Jamaica all I could think about “Damn, I want my bed”. That was the real eye-opening experience. Since getting my Casper I’ve undoubtedly been getting much better sleep, but having a week away from my mattress was so eye-opening to how much better my Casper actually is.
When I got this mattress I said to myself I wouldn’t blog about it until after the 100 Night Sleep Guarantee that Casper has (basically, you’re able to return the mattress within 100 nights if you don’t like it). It didn’t even cross my mind. Not even once.
Honestly, if you’re in the market for a new mattress I would 100% recommend considering Casper. They’ve got 2 showrooms in Canada that just opened up last year. One in Sherway Gardens and the other on Queen St West which you can visit to find the right mattress for you (they’ve got 3 mattresses in total) and with the 100-night sleep guarantee, you can make sure you’re putting your money into something that works for you. I got the mattress blindly based on recommendations but honestly, it’s been one of the best decisions I’ve made for my sleep. Now if only I started going to bed at a decent time I’d be all set – that’s a work in progress.
Side Note: Casper does offer Paybright Financing to offer interest-free financing on your order. While I didn’t use Paybright for my Casper order, I did use it for another purchase I made for the apartment and had a very positive experience. It allowed me to pay off my purchase over the course of 8 months (for the exact same price!) rather than all at once which made things a lot more affordable – especially with the move. I’d recommend taking a look at Paybright if you’re looking at getting a new mattress but it’s still a bit outside of your current budget/financing.
