Compare What’s Inside

Cocoon is a mattress brand that's focused on keeping you cool. Between its two models, they have plenty of cooling technology to go along with the comfort and support they bring. With Sealy backing this company, you know that what they produce is high quality.

Cocoon Classic

With 3 layers of memory foam underneath a breathable poly cover, this mattress keeps you cool and comfortable. Offering either Medium-Soft or Extra Firm you can pick how far into the bed you'd like to sink.

  • Starts at $399 for a Twin and goes up to $999 for a California King.

  • Starts at $600 for a Twin and goes up to $1150 for a California King]

Competitor #2: Casper

Casper is the brand you think of when someone says "mattress in a box." They are eco-friendly and offer the option to try their beds in one of their showrooms in most metropolitan areas. Over 70% of people who have slept on a Casper say it improved their sleep. They have 3 models:

Original Casper

A great all-around mattress, offering both support and cooling. The mattress helps with spinal alignment with 3 different support zones. The softer foam around the neck and upper back provide relief, while firm foam around the waist and hips align the spine. Comes in hybrid or an all-foam option.

  • Starts at $595 for a Twin and goes up to $1,295 for a California King

Wave Hybrid

The Wave Hybrid offers the maximum support for pressure points using gel pods to keep your spine in line. The Waves keeps all the same cooling advances as the Original just with more support. 90% of sleepers reported less back pain using the Wave.

  • Starts at $1,495 for a twin and goes up to $2,995 for a California King.

Nova Hybrid

Casper's newest mattress, the Nova offers plush comfort without sacrificing support. 7 different support zones help keep your spine aligned.

  • Starts at $1,095 for a Twin and goes up to $2,295 for a California King.

Side-By-Side Comparison

Both of these bed-in-a-box brands offer great mattresses. Nothing that is too expensive compared to some other brands. While both of the brands have great beds, there are some stark differences. Cocoon is focused on cooling your body while you sleep. Casper does have cooling technology, but focus more on supporting your joints and back.

Cocoon Chill and Cocoon Classic are mattresses that are made of foam without any coils or other hybrid features. The Chill itself adds on a cooling top layer that further helps with regulating your temperature throughout the night. While it is the cheaper option it doesn't offer much for those who need extra joint support or spinal support. If you have an issue with sleeping hot or like Sealy's products, go with Cocoon.

Casper offers not only memory foam mattresses but hybrids as well. All three models offer extra support, the support increasing as the price goes up. Casper is perfect for those sleepers who need joint support or spinal alignment. While still breathable it's not as cool as Cocoon's mattresses. Also, if you don't require a more supportive mattress, Casper isn't the right brand for you.

How To Choose The Right Mattress

First off, if your current mattress is 7-10 years old and you're experiencing more body aches and pains, it's time to buy a new mattress. Getting a good night's sleep is essential in maintaining a healthy body and mind. Choosing the right mattress doesn't have to be a hassle, follow these guidelines to find the right one for you!

  • Choose a mattress based on your individual needs. If you're looking for plushier support that adapts to your body's shape, a memory foam mattress is the best choice. If you want a more firm, traditional, feel an innerspring mattress is what you want. For the best of both worlds, get a hybrid mattress.
  • Get proper lumbar support. The majority of your body weight is positioned in what is called the "center third" of the mattress. Find a mattress that has excellent lumbar support as it prevents and alleviates pain in the back and hips. If you're looking for extra support, Saatva's unique lumbar zone technology might be the best fit.
  • Find a mattress with a long in-home trial. You want to be able to test your mattress over an extended period of time to really make sure this is the right one for you. Look for a company that offers a risk-free in-home sleep trial. Nectar offers a 365-day trial. IDLE Sleep offers a full 18-month trial (the longest in the industry).
