Transparency in the Materials
When shopping for a memory foam mattress, it is important to know the density of each layer of foam as it usually gives an indication as to whether the quality of the material matches the price of the mattress. Foam density is measured as the weight in pounds for a cubic foot of foam. Lower density foam tends to soften and break down faster than a higher density foam and for this reason, the density of the foam is a good indicator of the durability and support that a mattress will give you.

Understanding both the composition and the quality of the foam layers is also important from a transparency standpoint. Consumers should be armed with the information that will help them get the most out of their mattress over the long term. In the past, brick and mortar mattress sellers would rely heavily on the "touch and feel" of a mattress, as this was all that customers could gauge. The growing popularity of online mattress shopping has led to more accessible information on mattress construction and the specifications (such as the foam density) in each of the layers. Even though disclosing this information should be important for mattress retailers, there are many who don’t.

At Silk & Snow, we are very proud of the quality of materials used in making each of our mattresses and transparently provide the detailed specifications of each layer in the construction of our mattresses. We meticulously source each layer of foam from manufacturers within the country who we know and trust to create luxurious comfort that lasts.
Mattress Types
The mattress buying decision usually starts with whether you prefer an all foam mattress of a hybrid coil mattress.

An all foam mattress is usually constructed with multiple layers of memory foam and polyfoam. All foam mattresses are usually better suited for average sized body types or those who require better pressure point relief.

Pocketed Coil hybrid mattresses are usually constructed with multiple layers of foam on top of a pocketed coil base. Though memory foam mattresses are better known for having zero motion transfer, pocketed coil bases also provide a reasonable amount of isolation. Pocket coils are also known to provide a more traditional feel with better breathability that would benefit those that sleep hot. It is also more suitable for heavier body types.

Silk & Snow offers a choice of an all foam S&S Mattress or the S&S Hybrid coil mattress. The S&S Mattress is designed using a premium 4 lb memory foam layer. The S&S Hybrid mattress is a hybrid pocketed coil mattress which uses a premium memory foam layer supported by a pocketed coil base.

Casper has a total of 5 mattress designs on their website. Their most popular mattress is the Casper Original mattress, which is the original Casper mattress that has gone through a number of design changes over the years. The Casper Original is a 3-layer, zoned mattress that is offered in either a foam or hybrid model. Of all Casper mattress types, the Casper Original would be the most comparable to the S&S Mattress and Hybrid Mattress.

The Casper Wave Hybrid, which is their higher priced model and is only offered in a hybrid models (previously the Casper Wave mattress was offered an all-foam version but this no longer appears to be the case). The Casper Wave Hybrid mattress is designed to have continuous ergonomic zones with gel pods.

The Casper Element mattress, replaces the former Casper Essential mattress, as their cheapest model. The Casper Element mattress has a 2 layer design with perforated breathable foam. The Casper Element mattress is 10" thick and is the thinnest mattress in the Casper line.

The Casper Nov Hybrid mattress is the newest model in the Casper line. The Casper Nova Hybrid mattress was introduced in March 2020 and is marketed as their "most plush" mattress. The Casper Nova Hybrid mattress is priced in between the Casper Original and the Wave Hybrid. The Nova Hybrid mattress follows a similar theme within the entire line of mattresses, by using a layer of a layer of perforated foam.
