Purple Mattress Review

Purple’s unique grid shaped comfort layer provides a responsive sleeping experience without overheating. It’s ideal for back and side sleepers of all body weights.

Purple, like other bed-in a-box brands also ships its mattress compressed inside a cylinder. It takes a few hours for the mattress to fully decompress.

Responsive Support

Purple’s main differentiator is the Hyper-Elastic Polymer Purple Grid, which covers the top layer. This gel-like material is temperature-regulating, breathable, and has a soft, squishy feel. It’s also molded into a comfort grid design, which boosts airflow and helps the mattress breathe.

This layer is completed by a 3.5″ transition layer of 1.8lb density foam that provides additional pressure relief and comfort. The base layer is made up of 4” of poly foam with a 2 lb density to provide durability and structure.

Purple uses only materials that are CertiPUR US certified and free of harmful chemicals. The majority of their foams also have CleanAir GOLD ratings, which is yet another way that Purple promotes healthy sleep. Purple mattresses have a slight new mattress smell, but this goes away within a few days, especially if you are in a well ventilated room.

Motion Isolation

The Purple Mattress scores 7.5/10 on our motion isolation test, which means it limits the transfer of movement between sleepers. This is an excellent score for couples sharing a bed.

The top layer is a patented hyperelastic polymer mesh called Smart Comfort Grid. This unique material buckles under heavier areas to offer support and create a floating sensation that many sleepers love.

Next comes a 3.5-inch transition layer of soft, responsive foam that helps prevent sinkage. The base layer is a 4-inch medium-firm, high density polyfoam. This supports the rest the mattress.

All of the materials in the Purple Mattress are CertiPUR-US certified, meaning they meet standards for low emissions and chemicals. The Purple Mattress emits an initial “new-mattress” smell, but it will disappear within a few days when opened in a well ventilated room.

Comfort Levels

The Purple Mattress is an excellent choice for most sleepers. The top layer of patented hyper-elastic polymer offers some great pressure relief. A transition layer of 3.5-inches of fast-responding foam poly keeps the top layer from sinking.

The base layer of 4 inches of high-density poly foam provides solid support. If you’re heavier than average, however, you might find the Purple mattress a little too soft for your liking. The same is true for stomach sleepers. Firmer mattresses are better for them to avoid developing painful pressure points in the lower back and neck.

This mattress is also excellent at reducing motion. Even when we move around a lot as a couple, the other person barely feels it. This is especially beneficial for couples with differing sleeping habits. The Purple mattress also regulates temperature well. The breathable cover and GelFlex Grid allow for plenty of airflow, so you shouldn’t experience too much heat retention.

The Right to Rent

Purple offers a 10-year warranty on their mattresses. The warranty is separate from the sleep trial and return policy. The company does require a 21-night break-in period to let your body adjust to the mattress. After this, returns are fair game.

The warranty only covers structural and construction defects, as well as indentations that are one inch or more deep. It excludes localized changes in firmness, wear and tear, and any changes in comfort preference that occur over time. It does not cover damage caused by abuse or neglect.

Purple mattresses ship free in a box and are easy to set up. After removing the plastic wrap there may be a slight smell, but it should disappear within a few days in a well ventilated room. The mattress is heavy, however, so lifting and moving it will require some muscle. You’ll also need a bed frame or foundation to support it.
