What is Purple Mattress? Mini Purple Mattress Sample
The Purple Mattress, or simply “The Purple,” is an all-foam mattress, meaning there are no springs. It is made using Purple’s exclusive grid layer that makes use of the term “hyper-elastic polymer.” The layer, referred to by the name of Purple Grid Layer, is comprised of a comfort core and a support layer made from a polyfoam.
Purple Purple comes in at one firmness level- medium-firm— and is sold in different sizes that are delivered directly to your doorstep. This follows the increasing popularity of DTC which is a direct-to-consumer mattress companies which use less overhead to enhance the product itself.
Who Started Purple Mattress?
Purple has a variety of imaginative names, specifically the brothers Terry and Tony Pearce, who are manufacturing and material experts, respectively. They used both their expertise to develop sophisticated versions of products they felt required more care in terms of structure and comfort.
The result was the creation of Floam the high-tech cushioning fluid used in various items, from footwear to medical instruments. The issue of Floam has been that the product was usually only accessible to institutions as the cost of developing the tech was expensive.
The brothers set out to create an affordable Floam and later developed their own Hyper-elastic Polymer. Flexible, soft, and durable, the Hyper elastic polymer soon became the foundational aspect of what is what makes the Purple mattress supportive yet supple at the same time.
What is the difference between it and what is the Usual Mattress?
Purple comes in various sizes starting from twin size to California King. It also provides that landmark cushioning their unique fabric technologies give. This “Purple grid” is a foundational aspect of the features that make Purple an exceptional mattress since it functions like memory foam but gives an even more responsive bounce. The foam is made using a grid that allows airflow to pass via the spaces between the foam, thus regulating temperature without sacrificing the overall cushion.
Construction-wise, each mattress comes with 2-inches of Purple exclusive grid that is over a 3.5-inch foam layer. This is further supported by 4 inches of high-density polyfoam, which is a common feature in all foam mattresses, to provide the complete cushion shape and shape.
This construction is enhanced by a poly-viscose blended fabric that assists in regulating temperature and provides a great cool feel. Expect each mattress to be around 9.25 inches high which is sufficient for the majority of body shapes, and applicable for all standard sheets.
In layman’s terms, expect a semi-firm mattress (called “medium-firm”) with an affordable price, while also providing top-quality and modern materials. Furthermore, Purple comes with several variations, including the Hybrid as well as Hybrid Premier. Hybrid Premier. People who are used to coil-support mattresses can opt for these hybrids for a similar experience, but with the added benefit of Purple’s exclusive technology.
What Benefits Can I Expect?
But how does this really compare to the regular mattress? And how will it benefit you as the sleeping person? There are many aspects of sleeping and the elements that influence it, some generally accepted factors will be expected of the mattress.
Stress Relief Stress Relief, also known as Pressure Relief as some might refer to it, is one of the most essential benefits of having the Purple mattress. If you’ve ever woken with a backache or if you need to always stretch out in the morning it’s likely that you’re sleeping on the wrong mattress. It’s not providing enough pressure relief, and perhaps not enough support within its construction.
Purple Grid Purple Grid is most likely one of the major reasons Purple really shines in relieving pressure and easing the strain on your body. Their proprietary grid technology helps shape the body for the most comfortable and cozy feel. The majority of mattresses in the lower end have the problem of sleeping too much into their mattress. However, with the Purple mattress (the original , as well as all its variations) it has the perfect amount of cushion and the right amount of support to ensure that you can lay back without sinking to the bottom completely.
This is especially important to sleepers who feel discomfort when they sleep in certain positions. The use of a good pressure reliever helps ease discomfort- all the more important to specific sleeping positions.
One of the most overlooked aspects of mattresses that is crucial in their general quality whether they maintain their shape as weight is distributed across the sides– a mattress quality commonly called “structure retention.” This is usually the case with all foam mattresses since they lack structural support explicitly based on their materials.
In terms of Purple mattresses specifically, the original bed definitely isn’t immune to the same problems that many all-foam mattresses face regarding this structure retention. Because of their more elastic materials, they Purple Original does tend to keep its shape a bit more. This will certainly benefit those who need the most space as the improved edge retention results in the possibility of using all of the mattress without worrying about sinking.
This is further enhanced with this feature in the Purple Hybrid and Hybrid Premier versions, as they feature inner coil springs. This older yet still applicable technology can be found in numerous mattresses in the market now. These hybrid mattresses blend the elasticity of Purple’s grid layer with the stability of copper coils. They provide more flexible edges and keeping you in the bed when you need to and off the bed when you don’t.
One aspect of the mattress that affects the quality of your sleep is the way it regulates your body’s temperature. While it’s unlikely to think that mattresses are cooling in the nature of their materials, many cushions in the market are specially designed to have gaps between the foam in order to allow air to properly circulate.
The problem with all-foam mattresses is they can hold heat, particularly ones that are made up of memory foam. Unlike coil-mattress which is made of memory foam, heat generated by your body through things like friction and movement doesn’t have anywhere to go, and so it can quickly build up.
However, the Purple line of mattresses solves this issue primarily because (again) to their most flexible Purple grid layer. Since the Purple grid was created with wide spaces, air can move more freely between all the foam layers. This eliminates the annoying trapped heat issue that other mattresses have to deal with and keeps you asleep all night long.
A mattress aspect that you will likely often see on informationmercials is those that show “motion transfer” or how resistant the mattress is to transmitting movements across its surfaces. This is usually portrayed with an empty glass of water (or wine) situated on one end of the bed, and something heavy fall on the other (usually bowling ball or a person to show weight). A well-designed motion transfer bed will guarantee that the glass will not fall over despite the sudden movements at the other end.
In essence, you’ll want a mattress with minimal motion transfer as this keeps you sleeping when someone comes in or exits the mattress. The final thing you’d like is for you and the stuff with you to suddenly be thrown up in the air when someone joins you on the bed. Unlike the issues that arise due to temperature regulation, air foam mattresses actually have a distinct advantage since they have a tendency to transmit little or no movement from side to side. This applies squarely to the Purple mattress’s original. It uses the same foundational materials as other foam mattresses. However, it’s modernized with a higher-end top layer of high-elasticity foam.
However, be aware that Purple Hybrid and Hybrid Premier mattresses can carry some additional motion across their surfaces because of their use of inner coil mechanisms. What you trade in support, you forfeit in isolation from movement. While it’s not the same as full-on inner coil mattresses, don’t think you’ll be able to be able to balance the bowling ball and glasses of wine on the same mattress without creating the creation of a mess.
Related to the concepts of structure and isolation from movement retention is the notion about mattress flexibility. If a mattress boasts of its ability to mold to your body, you should also expect some aspect of movement inhibition. Naturally, it will be difficult to get out of your bed when you are completely in the bed.
While this may not be an issue for the majority of sleepers, some more particular people would prefer a little more flexibility or “bounce in the opposite direction” from the mattress. Purple straddles this balance pretty well, even though it is an entirely foam bed. Memory foam typically is prone to completely sinking the body of the user and making it difficult to get out of bed. The proprietary Purple grid layer is the reason because it can resemble memory foam contouring , but it has improved on it by adding an additional layer of responsiveness.
You can expect this ease of movement to improve even more when they launch their Hybrid and Hybrid Premier variants. Mattresses made of innerspring typically have better movement response in comparison to memory foam.
Who Is This Best For?
Mattress experts usually recommend a specific type of cushioning for different types of sleepers. If you’re not sure of the kind of sleeper you might be, you can simply look at the posture you generally get into during the night. You are generally classified by three categories: Side, Back, and Stomach Sleepers. What’s the Purple mattress’s performance for each of these types?
This is the main market for Purple since their mattresses offer pressure relief with side sleepers in mind. If you’re a side-sleeper then you’ll need to support your general spinal alignment. You must get the right amount of support, so you don’t experience any pressure points that hurt during the night. If you’re a heavy-set person, you might need more support than the support Purple provides.
Back Sleepers & Stomach Sleepers
Back sleepers should also enjoy plenty of support for your lumbar and some modicum for pressure relief. In addition, those who sleep more often may want to opt for a firmer mattress as Purple may feel a bit too soft. These people may sink into the mattress too deeply. If you’re between 130 to 230 points, this should be the best option for you. Still, preferences will definitely differ from person to.
The problem of support is getting more common when it comes to stomach sleepers. They’ll certainly require an even more firm base to prevent the accumulation of pressure points that could strain shoulders, necks and lower backs. Being a heavier stomach sleeperwith a weight of more than 130 poundscertainly requires the most firm bed.

Let’s say you’re in the middle weight-wise, and you’re an average side sleeper. If that’s the case, this mattress recommendation goes double as this allows you some ample support to the way you sleep.
