Where Can U Try A Purple 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 ideal for back and side sleepers of all body weights.

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 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. 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. 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 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.

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

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. 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 goes for stomach sleepers. Firmer mattresses are better for them to avoid developing painful pressure points in the 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.

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 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. 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 need to have a suitable bed frame or foundation for it.
