Pros and Cons of Each Protector
You Might Choose
- You want a quilted component to your mattress protector
- You have a mattress that’s at least 16-inches thick (or you have a Casper mattress)
- You want to be able to return it easily if you decide you don’t like it
- A secure fit to your mattress (360-elastic provides a tight grip)
- You want a thin protector
- You have a mattress that’s at least 13-inches thick (or you have a Purple mattress)
- You want a protector whose material can stretch
Casper Vs Purple Mattress Protector
Both protectors provide high-quality protection. Your choice will most likely come down to whether you want a quilted feel or a thin and less noticeable feel for your protector.
It’s also worth remembering that the Purple protector fits mattresses up to 13-inches while the Casper protector can go up to 16-inches thick.
Neither protector will completely protect against bed bugs since they are both five-sided (meaning the bottom side of the mattress is still exposed).
Both are machine washable and under $100 for a Queen size.
Because I have a Casper mattress, I really enjoyed the Casper protector. I also like saving money and it felt like I was combining a mattress pad and a mattress protector in this soft and quilted product.
No matter which protector you choose you can sleep easy knowing your mattress (and its warranty) will be safe!
