Before Jeffrey Dahmer was one of America's most notorious serial killers, he was just an awkward teen. He collected road kill, had an obsession with the neighborhood jogger, made scenes at school, and his family life was a mess.

The fabric is made from 100% long-staple Egyptian cotton and is available in both their lightweight percale and super smooth sateen.

The result of three years of research and millions of data points, the Casper Wave is a breakthrough in mattress design. Underneath its handsome exterior, you'll find the new, proprietary Natural Geometry System. It uses five layers of foam to mimic the natural contours of your body at 36 specific points, adjusting naturally to your shoulders and hips without sacrificing support, and keeping your spine properly aligned.
