I Tried Casper’s New Down Pillow That’s Made for Every Sleep Position—and Now I’m Obsessed
Plus, here's how it molds to any sleep position.
If you’re at the point in your life where getting a good night’s sleep is more coveted than a late night out with friends, it’s time to start investing in those Zs. Luckily, there’s no shortage of popular sleep products on the market that promise to improve the quality of your shuteye— luxurious silk pillowcases, weighted eye masks, pink noise sleep fans, cooling sheets, side-sleeper pillows—you name it, it’s out there, and we’re definitely not complaining.
Even if you haven’t jumped on the mattress-in-a-box bandwagon yet, you can still reap some major sleep benefits from Casper, one of the very first companies that introduced this new mattress concept. Originally known for its award-winning mattresses, Casper just launched a new down pillow, and it’s the brand’s most comfortable innovations yet. This pillow will make you want to break up with your current too-firm (and most likely old!) pillow.
If you’re waiting to upgrade your mattress, a new pillow is the next best swap you can make to help you sleep better. While there are specific pillows for every type of sleeper (we’re looking at you, stomach sleepers!), Casper’s new down pillow is specially designed to suit all types of sleepers because it molds to your sleep position each night—so you’ll enjoy it whether you sleep on your side, stomach, or back. Crafted with a unique five-chamber design, the outer two chambers provide breathable comfort while the three inner layers offer responsive support—meaning it moves naturally with your sleep position throughout the night while still supporting your head and neck.
So if you’ve been looking for that in-between pillow that has just the right amount of fluff and support, I can tell you from personal experience that you’ve come to the right place. I’ve always slept on down-filled pillows, so what I love most about this one is that it doesn’t go flat overnight. As a side sleeper, it basically hugs my head and neck to form the perfect amount of supported comfort. But if you’ve ever been hesitant to try out down pillows because of their fill, Casper has ensured that this new pillow is certified by the Responsible Down Standard (RDS), meaning the inner fill comes from birds who are treated with care.
And I hate to break it to you, but after about two years of use, more than one-third of your pillow is most likely made up dust mites, dead skin, and bacteria, meaning you’re probably overdue for a major upgrade. There’s nothing wrong with investing in better (and healthier) sleep! Plus, this one is machine-washable, so it’s a purchase that’ll last you for years to come. Below you can shop the Casper Down Pillow in two sizes, standard and king. Happy dreaming!
