Quick Breakdown

Purple is another new idea in bringing a great night’s sleep to you. If claims to be both soft and firm. These different properties are determined by their Smart-Comfort Grid System™. Made of their trademarked Hyper-Elastic Polymer, the honeycombed grid is made up of square cells with walls that have specific pressure and weight thresholds. When the cells reach their threshold, the walls release to distribute the weight evenly into surrounding cells. The way it works is that the cells under high-pressure points like your hips or shoulders collapse and spread for more sink while low pressure areas (wider areas like your back) get full support without as much sink. Thus, you get soft where you want soft and firm where you want firm.

CONSTRUCTION

The Purple is a 9.5” mattress – just a tiny bit shorter than the average 10 inches. The Purple grid – that honeycomb of Hyper-Elastic boxes – is just 2” thick. It sits on 3.5” of a transitional support polyurethane foam and that sits on a 4” foundation of polyurethane base foam. Overall, you get a slightly lower profile with 3-layer construction. Purple is a new design and they say it can standup to two 300-pound sleepers but will get softer faster. However, it seems like the 2” grid foam could have been made a bit thicker, but since the walls are made to collapse, the buyer has to trust the Purple technology that the layer will function properly over its lifespan, which Purple says should be 8 to 10 years.
Because the Purple is designed to give different levels of support to different body parts – providing pressure-relieving softness for the heavy parts of the body and providing support with less sink to lighter body parts – you get a combination of comfort levels. However, the Purple comes in at an overall 6 on a 10-point firmness scale. This is a number that allows a mattress to work for different sleeping positions or for partners with different sleep styles. The honeycomb construction does a good job of limiting motion transfer. You and your partner can sleep in different positions, move in your sleep and not bother each other. Overall, Purple brings new technology to the bedding industry and is giving consumers a new choice in scientifically designed comfort.

COMFORT

The Purple mattress has a different feel than most mattresses. You may have to adjust to that difference, but once you do, you’re going to find that the Purple is very comfortable and gives you both pressure-relief and support. The honeycombed cells work to distribute your weight so you get a softer surface to relieve pressure points and still enjoy full-body support. Overall, the mattress is a just a tad firmer than medium so it will work for all sleeping positions. Motion transfer is reduced and that’s a plus for couples. There is not much odor connected to the bed when it is unwrapped and what there is will disappear in a day or two. Best of all, no worries -- there are no toxic fumes. If you are willing to try a new idea in sleep, you are going to find that Purple is a different kind of mattress, but it just might be the right one for you.

VALUE

Purple isn’t a truly low-priced bed, but it is a fair priced bed if it can deliver everything it claims. We think it can. It’s going to be a few more years before the durability of the honeycomb is completely proven. However, it was designed by a true rocket scientist so you know that it has a solid scientific foundation. Plus, versions of the hyper-elastic material have been used in European beds and hospital beds with success. If you like investing in new technology – and in a better night’s rest – we think the Purple will give you above average value and that restorative sleep.

RETURN POLICY

Purple says they “hope” you’ll sleep on the bed for at least 30 days, but don’t seem to make it a requirement. Again, this is a company that takes care of the entire return for you. They’ll have a charity pick it up from your home and they will give you a full refund of the purchase price. Simply, you can try the new technology of Purple without risk.

PURPLE MATTRESS REVIEWS


John P.

HIGHLY recommend Purple!
The ordering was easy and Brett really did well to get the mattress here on time. This was a replacement mattress for our camper and we both noticed an improvement in sleep quality, comfort and pain reduction the first night. We both have had significant back injuries in the past, so attaining zero pain long term has never happened, but this mattress is AS comfortable, if not MORE comfortable than the memory foam, adjustable position bed at home.

Thanks Purple!
Been on my Purple for a month now...Not returning it! Don't know how I ever slept on a spring mattress.I have back problems and work on my feet all day. I catch myself dreaming of my purple while I'm awake!
