The Casper and Emma mattresses are really quite similar. They both have a similar firmness and feel. They also feature a zoned construction. However, if you look more closely, you will see they are better for different people.
First off, the Casper mattress is much more well-known. Casper is one of the most recognizable bed-in-a-box brands, and they offer fantastic customer service. Emma only recently started shipping to the United States. It may take longer to receive your Emma mattress, and the customer service might not be as quick to respond.
Also, the Casper is going to be the better mattress for larger people. It contains a transition layer while the Emma does not. Larger people should feel better support and pressure relief while sleeping on the Casper.
Do you want a mattress that is going to last you for a good amount of time? The Casper mattress should be the better choice. It has more layers and is a denser, heavier mattress. It should be a good long-term investment.
However, if you want a more affordable mattress, I would take a look at the Emma. It is very similar to the Casper, and it costs less. If you can’t decide between these mattresses, choosing the Emma could save you some money.
If you are a lighter person, the Emma should work well for you. Lighter people don’t have the support or comfort needs that larger people have. You should get all the comfort and support you need on the Emma.
Finally, if you need a mattress for teenagers or a guest room mattress, the Emma should be a good choice. It is a quality mattress that is affordable and should work for teenagers and guests who are staying for a few nights.
These are two very nice mattresses, so it may feel hard to choose. However, just keep this information in mind, and you should be able to find the right mattress for you!
