Which Casper is best for your sleeping style?

Update 10/16/17

My Casper Essential has been “delayed”.  Who wants to bet that this is connected to my review of the Casper Wave???

Update 10/19/17

It should be here today, tracking says its on a truck in Tempe, Az.  2 weeks is about double the time it typically takes for Casper to ship something to me.  Favoritism towards other review sites?  A special “review mattress” who knows?  Fact is I know that they shipped them out last week and mine didn’t come for a week after that.

At a price of $600 for a Queen, Casper is likely shooting to compete with Tuft & Needle, Eve, and Nectar.  The Casper Essential consists of 3 layers of foam and is 8.5″ tall.  That’s 1.5″ smaller than the Casper and 3″ smaller than the Casper Wave.

Did the Serta lawsuit against Casper (regarding the casper wave) force Casper into abandoning the Wave in favor of the Essential option?  Or was Casper always planning on having a good better best version of their mattresses?

I’ll buy one today, so I expect to have it by next week so that I can start testing it.
