Casper, Tuft & Needle score high on Consumer Reports' memory foam ratings
January 3, 2017,
YONKERS, N.Y. – Casper and Tuft & Needle took the No. 1 and No. 3 spots on Consumer Reports’ new ratings of memory foam mattresses. Memory foam leader Tempur-Pedic, meanwhile, ranked No. 33 on that list – dead last.
The influential consumer products rating group gave high ratings to several bed-in-a-box offerings on the memory foam list. In addition to the high scores for Casper and Tuft & Needle, two of the largest players in that category, Luxi rated No. 7, while Yogabed was No. 8, and Leesa was No. 13, among others.
The beds were rated on several factors, including how well they performed in support tests for a petite side sleeper, an average side sleeper, a large/tall side sleeper, a petite back sleeper, an average back sleeper, and a large/tall back sleeper. The beds were also tested for durability and stabilization.
Casper scored very good on seven tests, and excellent on another (durability.)
Casper’s overall score on the memory foam list was 79, while the No. 2 Novaform 14-inch Serafina Pearl Gel (at Costco) received a 78, and the Tuft & Needle Mattress received a 74.
The Tempur-Pedic Cloud Supreme, in the No. 33 spot, received an overall score of 42.
