How To Lay On A Purple Mattress

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.

Like other bed-in-a-box brands, Purple ships its mattress compressed in a cylinder case. It takes several hours for the mattress decompress.

Responsive Support

Purple’s key differentiator is its patented Hyper-Elastic Polymer Purple Grid that covers the top layer of their mattresses. 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 complemented by a 3.5” transition layer of 1.8 lb density foam to provide additional pressure relief and support. The base layer is made up of 4” of poly foam with a 2 lb density to provide durability and structure.

All of the materials used by Purple are CertiPUR-US certified and free from harmful chemicals. Most of their foams are also CleanAir GOLD rated, which is another way they promote 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.

The Purple Mattress is made from materials that are CertiPUR US certified. This means they meet standards of 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 is made of patented hyper elastic polymer, which provides excellent pressure relief. There is also a transition layer of 3.5 inches of fast-responding poly foam that keeps the top layer from sinking too much.

The base layer, which is 4 inches of high density poly foam, provides a solid foundation. If you’re heavier than average, however, you might find the Purple mattress a little too soft for your liking. The same goes 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 one of us moves around a lot, the other sleeper barely feels it. This is particularly beneficial for couples who have different 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.

Warranty

Purple offers a 10 year warranty on its mattresses. The warranty is separate from the sleep trial and return policy. The company requires a 21-night break in period to allow your body to 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 to firmness, wear, and any changes that may occur in comfort preferences over time. It does not cover damage caused by abuse or neglect.

Purple mattresses are shipped in a box for free and are easy to assemble. There may be a slight off-gassing smell right after you remove the plastic wrap, but this should dissipate within a few hours 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.
