Mazon Purple Mattress

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.

Like other bed-in-a-box brands, Purple ships its mattress compressed in a cylinder case. 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. 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 a great score for couples who share 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. 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. 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

Purple Mattress is a great choice for most sleepers. The top layer of patented hyper-elastic polymer offers some great 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 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. It is offered separately from their 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 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. It is heavy and will take some strength to lift it. You’ll need to have a suitable bed frame or foundation for it.
