Can You Wash 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.

Purple, like other bed-in a-box brands also ships its mattress compressed inside a cylinder. It takes several hours for the mattress 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 is also molded in a comfort grid, which increases airflow and helps to breathe the mattress.

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 scored 7.5/10 in our motion isolation test. This means that it limits the transference 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.

The next layer is a 3.5 inch transition layer of soft foam that prevents sinkage. Then there’s a 4-inch base layer of medium-firm, high-density polyfoam that supports the rest of 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 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 particularly beneficial for couples who have different sleeping habits. Purple mattresses regulate temperature well. The GelFlex Grid and breathable cover allow for airflow so you shouldn’t have 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 period, returns are allowed.

The warranty covers only structural and construction defects as well as indentations of one inch or greater depth. 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 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.
