Used Purple Queen Size Mattress

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 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 several hours for the mattress 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 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.

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 scored 7.5/10 in our motion isolation test. This means that it limits the transference of movement between sleepers. This is a great score for couples who share a bed.

The top layer is a patented hyperelastic polymer mesh 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. 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. 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 of 4 inches of high-density poly foam provides solid support. Purple mattresses can be a bit too soft if you are heavier than average. 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 particularly beneficial for couples who have different 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. 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 period, returns are allowed.

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 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 also need a bed frame or foundation to support it.
