Purple Mattress Review

Purple mattress considers itself the “original, no pressure mattress and “the first revolution in sleep technology since the ’70s.” While the mattress launched in 2015, it did so after 20 years’ of research by two brothers, Tony and Terry Pearce. Tony, an aerospace engineer and Terry, an expert in materials and manufacturing, first started by creating cushioning technologies used to make wheelchairs, shoes, and medical devices more comfortable. Later they decided to turn their energies to the business of sleep,  inventing what they considered the best mattress technology in the world. They named it Hyper-Elastic Polymer™. From there, Purple was born.

The Purple mattress is designed to alleviate joint paint and is perfect for those with bad backs or other body aches. Its Purple Smart Comfort Grid™ adapts to your pressure points by adapting to your body shape. Its temperature-neutral, open grid design allows for airflow, ensuring you don’t become overheated in your sleep. It’s geared towards every type of sleeper, too: stomach, side, or both.

Do you share a bed with your significant other? You’ll love Purple’s motion transfer prevention system. Thanks to its design, Purple technology is able to isolate and reduce motion from one sleeper to the other. This way, you can continue to sleep soundly while your significant other tosses and turns the night away.

How Does the Original Purple Differ From The New Purple?

 

The Original Purple mattress is built with a 2-inch layer of the Smart Comfort Grid atop two top-quality polyurethane foam comfort bases. This is the firmest of the mattresses.

The New Purple Mattress gives you the option of a Smart Comfort Grid size: two, three, or four inches. The higher the grid, the less firm the mattress.

The grid is placed over Purple’s deluxe Responsive Support Coils, which are designed to work in conjunction with the Smart Comfort Grid™ for enhanced pressure relief and spinal alignment.

Rating

Purple mattress back contour

Overall, we give Purple mattress a 4.5 out of 5. As the mattress is designed to alleviate joint pain, it’s more niche than some of the other brands out there and can take longer to get used to. Thus, it’s not as good an “all around mattress” as some of the others.

Our rating level is based on comfort, coolness, customer service, warranties, and overall value.
