Purple Mattress On Floor

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

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 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 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. The base layer is a 4-inch medium-firm, high density polyfoam. This supports the rest the mattress.

All of the materials in the Purple Mattress are CertiPUR-US certified, meaning they meet standards for 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. Purple mattresses can be a bit too soft if you are heavier than average. The same goes 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 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.

Warranty

Purple offers a 10-year warranty on their 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 in firmness, wear and tear, and any changes in comfort preference that occur over time. It also doesn’t cover any damage caused by misuse or neglect.

Purple mattresses are shipped in a box for free and are easy to assemble. 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.
