Purple Mattress Review

About Purple

Purple burst on the scene in 2016 with the world’s first No Pressure™ mattress, made from a unique Hyper-Elastic Polymer™ of their own invention. Using this material has allowed them to make their mattresses both extremely comfortable and surprisingly affordable.

They now offer two different beds, The Original Purple mattress and the New Purple mattress. The Original is the less expensive option (but still outstanding in quality) and the New is a more luxurious hybrid. Both beds have Purple’s proprietary “Smart Comfort Grid,” which makes for excellent pressure relief and temperature control.

We love the Original as one of the best values at its price point and the New Purple as one of the top hybrids on the market. Read on for more on why these are two stand-out mattress options.

Highlights
  • Free shipping and returns
  • 100-night free trial
  • 10-year warranty
  • Great temperature control (sleeps very cool)
  • Available in multiple firmness levels and thicknesses (New Purple)
The Original Purple
METRICS RATING DETAILS
Noise EXCELLENT The Purple is as quiet as a mattress can be when you move around on it.
Temperature GREAT Purple’s open grid design provides great airflow through the mattress, which keeps you very cool while you sleep.
Motion Isolation GREAT Many customers who sleep with a partner on a Purple report little to no disturbance when there’s movement on the mattress.
Huggability GREAT The “pressure-releasing” material of Purple is designed to relieve pressure points and create optimal spinal alignment, and it is very effective at doing so.
Durability GOOD The Purple is made of a unique polymer foam that is promised to last for decades. However, the company has not been in business long enough to test whether that claim is true.
Odor GOOD As with most compressed beds, you can expect some off-gassing with the Purple, which should dissipate within a few hours.
Sex AVERAGE As a foam bed, the Purple has minimal bounce. Many couples might prefer a more responsive feel.
Edge Support AVERAGE Edge support is not Purple’s strongest suit, though it is on par with most foam beds.
The New Purple
METRICS RATING DETAILS
Temperature EXCELLENT New Purple’s open grid design does very well to promote airflow and dissipate body heat, so you stay cool while you sleep.
Motion Isolation GREAT The New Purple is up there with the very best when it comes to isolating motion. It’s very difficult to detect any motion coming from the other side of the bed, which makes for few disturbances during the night.
Huggability GREAT The smart comfort grid technology conforms very well to the contours of your body, relieving pressure while still providing great support to the spine.
Noise GREAT The New Purple is just as quiet as the original. Most sleepers report little to no noise from this bed.
Durability GOOD Hyper-elastic polymer combined with the individual responsive coil system makes the New Purple very durable. Given that this is a new product, there’s no telling exactly how long it should last.
Odor GOOD An insignificant amount of off-gassing is to be expected, as with any new mattress. It should dissipate within just a few hours.
Sex GOOD The New Purple is a very responsive hybrid mattress. Couples who like some bounce to their bed will be pleased.
Edge Support GOOD The New Purple’s reinforced perimeter make gives it very good edge support. Great for those who like to sleep closer to the edge of a mattress.
Is Original Purple or New Purple the right mattress for me?

Judging the characteristics of a mattress is a subjective process – everyone has a different sleeping experience on different mattresses and their own interpretation of firmness, support, etc. Your own comfort and spinal support are perhaps the most critical things you need to consider when choosing the right mattress for you.

Both the Original Purple and New Purple are excellent options if you’re looking for quality and value. If you’re on a budget the Original Purple will work very well for you, especially if you like the conforming feeling of a foam bed. If you’re willing to spend a bit more, the New Purple hybrid is the more luxurious of the two.

Both will serve the needs of back, stomach, side and combination sleepers. Lighter-weight sleepers who enjoy sleeping on their side may find the Original Purple to be on the firmer side. The New Purple, on the other hand, is available in multiple firmness options and thicknesses and so can be customized for your sleep style. The New Purple has great conforming to give you that sinking feeling that relieves pressure on the shoulders and hips, and the individual coil support to keep the spine in alignment.
We especially recommend the Original Purple and New Purple mattresses if you sleep with a partner. Both have great motion isolation. Also, if you tend to sleep hot. The open grid design of the comfort layer on both beds makes them extremely breathable and temperature neutral.

Bottom Line

You can’t go wrong with either Purple mattress. The Original is among the best bed-in-a-box, foam mattress options on the market and a great value at only $999 for a Queen. The New Purple hybrid is comparable to high-quality luxury mattresses like Saatva and DreamCloud. Both are made with Purple’s patented hyper-elastic polymer that goes into the Smart Comfort Grid technology, providing exceptional pressure relief, support, airflow and motion isolation for a great night’s sleep.
