What is Purple Mattress? Shell Purple Eggshell Mattress
The Purple Mattress, or simply “The Purple,” is an all-foam mattresswith there are no springs. It is made using Purple’s exclusive grid layer that utilizes the term “hyper-elastic polymer.” The layer, also known by the name of Purple Grid Layer, is comprised of a comfort layer and a support core that is made out of a polyfoam.
The Purple comes in at one firmness level- medium-firm— and is available in a variety of sizes directly to your door. This is in line with the growing trend of DTC which is a direct-to-consumer mattress manufacturers with lower overheads to enhance the product itself.
Who Started Purple Mattress?
Purple has some imaginative names particularly brothers Terry and Tony Pearce, who are material and manufacturing experts and material experts, respectively. They used both their knowledge to create advanced versions of items they believed required more attention 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 problem of Floam is that it was only accessible to institutions as the price to develop the technology was costly.
The brothers decided to develop a cheaper Floam and eventually developed their patented Hyper-elastic Polymer. It is soft, stretchy and long-lasting, the Hyper-elastic polymer soon became the foundational element that makes a Purple mattress supportive yet supple and supple.
What is the difference between it and the Usual Mattress?
Purple comes in different sizes starting from twin size to California King. It also provides that landmark cushioning that their distinctive technology for fabric provides. The “Purple Grid” is a fundamental element of the features that make Purple a unique mattress, as it behaves similar to memory foam, however it provides the bounce of memory foam but is more flexible. The foam is made in a grid system that allows airflow to pass through the gaps between the foam, thus regulating temperature , without compromising the overall cushion.
In terms of construction, every mattress has a 2 inches of Purple exclusive grid that is on top of an additional 3.5-inch Polyfoam layers. It is further supported by 4 inches of high-density polyfoam, which is a common feature in all foam mattresses, to provide the complete cushion form and shape.
The construction is further enhanced by a polyester-viscose blend fabric that helps to regulate temperature and provides a great cool feel. You can expect each mattress to measure around 9.25 inches high which is sufficient for the majority of body shapes and suitable to most sheet sets.
To put it into layman’s terms, look for a mattress that’s semi-firm (called “medium-firm”) at an affordable price, while also providing top-quality and modern materials. Moreover, Purple comes with several different variants known as Hybrid, Hybrid as well as Hybrid Premier. Hybrid Premier. People who are used to coil-support mattresses can choose these hybrids for a similar experience but enhanced by Purple’s own technologies.
What Benefits Can I Expect?
However, how does this compare to a regular mattress? And how will it benefit you as a sleeper? Although there are numerous aspects to sleep and the features that affect it, some generally accepted elements are considered when you buy mattresses.
Stress Relief Stress Relief, or Pressure Relief according to what some call it, is one of the most essential benefits of owning a Purple mattress. If you’ve ever had to wake up with a stiff back or continuously stretch during the day it’s likely that you’re sleeping on an unsupportive mattress that offers little pressure relief, and perhaps not enough support in the structure.
The Purple Grid is likely to be one of the main reasons Purple excels at relieving pressure and easing the strain to your body. Their unique grid technology can help contour the body to provide an incredibly soft and supportive feeling. The majority of mattresses in the lower end have the problem of sleeping too much into their mattress. However, with this Purple mattress (the original , as well as all its variations) You will find the right amount of softness and the proper amount of support 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. A pressure relieving device that is effective can ease this discomfortand is even more crucial to certain sleep positions.
One of the most overlooked aspects of mattresses essential in their general quality how well they maintain their shape in the event that weight is spread across the sides- a mattress quality commonly called “structure retention.” This is often where all-foam mattresses falter as they lack structural support directly based on their materials.
As for Purple mattresses specifically the bed’s original design isn’t immune to the same problems that all foam mattresses have regarding this structure retention. However, due to their more elastic materials, Purple Original Purple Original does tend to keep its shape a bit more. This will certainly benefit those who require the greatest surface area since more edge retention will give you being able to utilize the entirety of the bed without having to worry about sinking.
This is further enhanced with the Purple Hybrid and Hybrid Premier models, which have inner-coil springs. This more traditional, yet still effective technology can be found in numerous mattresses on the market today. The hybrid mattresses combine the elasticity of Purple’s grid layer with the strength of copper coils. They provide more responsive edgesthat keep your bed in place when you need to and off it when you aren’t.
One aspect of the mattress that affects the quality of sleep you get at night is the way it regulates your body’s temperature. While it’s unlikely to think that mattresses cool by the nature of their materials, many cushions in the market are specially designed to have gaps and spaces between the foam in order to allow air to properly circulate.
The problem with all-foam mattresses is they can trap heat, especially those made primarily from memory foam. Unlike coil-mattress that are made of coils, the heat generated by your body through things like friction and movement don’t have any place to go, and so the heat will quickly accumulate.
But, Purple’s line mattresses overcomes this problem primarily because (again) in part) to its most flexible Purple grid layer. Because the Purple grid was designed with open spaces, air is able to move more freely between all the foam layers. This helps avoid the dreaded trapped heat issue other mattresses face and helps keep you asleep all night long.
One of the mattress aspects that you will likely see a lot when watching infomercials are those that feature “motion transfer” or the extent to which the mattress is to transmitting motion across its surface. It’s usually demonstrated by having an empty glass of water (or wine) placed on one side of the bed while having something heavy drop on the other (usually a bowling ball or a person to illustrate the weight). A bed that is motion-resistant will ensure that the glass would not tip over in spite of the sudden movement at the other end.
Generally speaking, you’ll need mattresses that have minimal motion transfer since this will keep you asleep whenever someone enters or exits the mattress. The most important thing you’ll want is for yourself and all the stuff with you to jump out of the bed when someone is seated on the bed. Unlike the issues that arise from temperature regulation foam mattresses actually have an advantage as they have a tendency to transmit little or no movement between sides. This is especially true for the Purple mattress’s initial. It uses the same materials for foundation as many foam mattresses. Still, it is enhanced with a newer top layer of ultra-elastic foam.
However, be aware that Purple Hybrid and Hybrid Premier mattresses may carry over the slightest amount of movement on their surface due to their usage of inner-coil mechanism. In exchange support, you forfeit in isolation from movement. Although it might not be as bad as full in-seam mattresses you shouldn’t expect to be able to balance an ice-cream cone and glasses of wine on the same bed without it leading to a terrible mess.
Related to the concepts of movement isolation and structure retention is the notion about mattress flexibility. When a mattress advertises its ability to mold to your body, you should be expecting some degree of movement control. Naturally, it will be more difficult to get out the bed if you feel in the bed.
Although this might not be an issue for the majority of sleepers, certain people would prefer a little more flexibility and “bounce into” from a mattress. Purple straddles this balance pretty well, despite being the only foam mattress. Memory foam typically comes with the problem of sinking into the body, making it difficult to get out of bed. The exclusive Purple grid is the reason it for the ability of its grid to mimic contouring of memory foam, but improve on it by adding an extra layer of responsiveness.
You can expect this ease of movement to improve even more with Hybrid as well as Hybrid Premier variants. Mattresses made of innerspring typically have better reaction to movement compared to memory foam.
Who Is This Best For?
Mattress researchers often recommend certain types of cushioning for different types of sleepers. If you don’t know what kind of sleeper you may be, just observe the position you usually end up in in the evening. It is common to classify you as one of three kinds: Side, Back, as well as Stomach Sleepers. What’s the Purple mattress’s performance for each of these types?
This is the main target market for Purple as their mattresses provide pressure relief for people who sleep on their sides in mind. If you’re a side sleeper, expect the need to have support for your spine’s general alignment. It is essential to get the proper amount of support to ensure that you don’t experience any painful pressure points over the course of the night. If you’re heavier-set and you’re a heavier-set person, you may need more assistance than the kind that Purple provides.
Back Sleepers & Stomach Sleepers
Back sleepers also need the support of your lumbar area and a little bit in pressure relief. Again, heavier sleepers might prefer an extra firm mattress since Purple may feel a bit too soft. These people may sink too much into the bed. If you are between 130 and 230 points, this should be the best option for you. But, your preferences will vary from person to person.
The problem of support is getting more common when it comes to stomach sleepers. They will definitely need a more solid base to prevent the accumulation of any pressure points that could strain shoulders, necks or lower backs. Being a stomach sleeper who weighs morewith a weight of more than 130 pounds-certainly requires the most firm bed.
