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 (now called Purple Grid™). Using this material has allowed them to make their mattresses both extremely comfortable and surprisingly affordable.
They now offer three different beds, The Purple mattress (also known as the Original Purple), the Purple Hybrid and Purple Hybrid Premier. The Purple is the less expensive option (but still outstanding in quality) and the Hybrid is a more luxurious hybrid. All three beds have Purple’s proprietary “Smart Comfort Grid,” which makes for excellent pressure relief and temperature control. One thing to note about the Premier, which is very similar to the hybrid: you can personalize your comfort level by selecting the type and size of Purple Grid inside the mattress.
We love the Purple as one of the best values at its price point and the Purple Hybrid as one of the top hybrids on the market. We’ll focus on these two in this review. Read on for more on why these mattresses are outstanding options.

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 Purple and Purple Hybrid are excellent options if you’re looking for quality and value. If you’re on a budget the Purple will work very well for you, especially if you like the conforming feeling of a foam bed (plus a unique floating feel). If you’re willing to spend a bit more, the 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 will be pleased with the conforming and support provided by both the Purple and Purple Hybrid. If you’d like to personalize your sleep, the Purple Hybrid Premier is available in multiple firmness options of different thicknesses and so can be customized for your sleep style. The Purple Hybrid has great conforming to give you that body-hugging feel that relieves pressure on the shoulders and hips, and the individual coil support to keep the spine in alignment.
We especially recommend the Purple and Purple Hybrid 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.
The Purple Hybrid Premier is available in two different firmness levels which correspond to the different thicknesses of the Purple Grid layer (3 and 4 inches). The thicker that layer, the softer the mattress.

You can’t go wrong with any of the three Purple mattresses. The Purple 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 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 Purple Grid technology, providing exceptional pressure relief, support, airflow and motion isolation for a great night’s sleep.
