Purple Mattress For Adjustable Bed

Purple Mattress Review

Unlike traditional foam or hybrid mattresses, Purple’s unique grid-shaped comfort layer offers a responsive sleep 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.

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. Like most beds with foam, Purple has a bit of a new mattress smell that dissipates within a day or two, especially 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 of the Purple Mattress is a patented hyper-elastic polymer grid 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. Like most mattresses, the Purple Mattress does emit an initial “new mattress” odor, but this will dissipate within a few hours when opened in a well-ventilated room.

Comfort Levels

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

The base layer, which is 4 inches of high density poly foam, provides a solid foundation. Purple mattresses can be a bit too soft if you are heavier than average. 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. Purple mattresses regulate 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 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. It is heavy and will take some strength to lift it. You’ll need to have a suitable bed frame or foundation for it.
