Do Mattress Stores Sell The Purple Bed

Purple Mattress Review

Purple’s unique grid shaped comfort layer provides a responsive sleeping experience without overheating. It’s perfect for side and back sleepers of any weight.

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 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. Finally, the base layer is made of 4” of 2 lb density poly foam to add durability and structure to the mattress.

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. 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 is a patented hyperelastic polymer mesh called Smart Comfort Grid. This unique material buckles underneath heavier areas to provide support and create the floating sensation that many people love.

Next comes a 3.5-inch transition layer of soft, responsive foam that helps prevent 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

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 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. They need a firmer mattress to avoid painful pressure points in their lower back and neck.

Motion isolation is also very good on this mattress. 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. The Purple mattress also regulates temperature well. The GelFlex Grid and breathable cover allow for airflow so you shouldn’t have too much heat retention.

The Right to Rent

Purple offers a 10 year warranty on its mattresses. It is offered separately from their 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 covers only structural and construction defects as well as indentations of one inch or greater depth. It excludes localized changes to firmness, wear, and any changes that may occur in comfort preferences over time. It also doesn’t cover any damage caused by misuse 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 need to have a suitable bed frame or foundation for it.
