How does the Purple mattress perform?

If you have been in the market for a new mattress, but haven’t been able to figure out if you want foam or spring mattress then maybe you should try hyper elastic polymer. This is a brand new type of material that is on the market right now thanks to Purple Mattress. This new mattress has really made a name for itself within the direct to customer mattress industry and it’s famous discount offer.

Purple mattress size

The Purple Mattress is 9.5 inches thick and it made up of 3 different layers of polymer and foam. The first and top most layer is made of hyper elastic polymer that is 2 inches thick. This particular layer was designed to give you a cool experience while youare sleeping which also helps to provide relief to pressure points that your body is trying to create when you lay down. The polymer is made using a smart grid design from Purple which really helps to provide and improve the comfort and cooling of the top layer. The middle layer is made of polyurethane foam that is 3.5 inches thick. This middle layer works well with the top layer to really create good transitional support, as well as deep compression support which is great for those who are heavier sleepers. The last layer is made of poly foam which is 4 inches thick. This is the foundational layer for the whole mattress.


Looks count!

When it comes to the looks, the cover looks quite modern. Although it is all white and has more of that classic feel, the diamond patter that it comes with gives it that sleek, modern appeal that no other type of design has. Additionally, the Purple logo is on the sides of the mattress which help to enhance the design. The look of the Purple mattress is great. Even though it isn’t extraordinary, they managed to do a really great job of taking a plain white design and making it look quite amazing and sharp.

The cover

The cover of this mattress is made up of a special blend of polyester lycra, viscose and polyester mix. The mix of these materials really make the cover very breathable. Not to mention that it is very soft and stretchy. After you tug around on the cover from various angles, you will notice that it will actually begin to snap back to its original shape without any type of issue. The cover for the Purple Mattress is perfect for the hyper elastic smart grid layer. They work really great together in order to keep there from being a really big build up of heat.

Purple mattress performance

The feel of the Purple mattress is quite unique. When it comes to the firmness scale of 1 to 10, where 10 is the firmest, the purple mattress is between a 6 and 6.5. This mattress was really designed to fit the needs of most sleepers.

This mattress is one of the most interesting mattresses that I have ever tested. The material combinations really provide you with a feel that can not be experienced anywhere else on any other type of mattress. The hyper elastic polymer of the Purple mattress is almost like latex, but it does everything so much better. The support that you get from this mattress is beyond great. When you laying on the mattress, you won’t really feel any specific pressure points. The top layer of this mattress does a really great job of removing the pressure between you and your mattress. I am a stomach and side sleeper and I truly feel that my spine was really well supported through the night and my sleep tests. My partner also felt the same way, which made it a great mattress for us.

Even though the mattress did a great job of really supporting your body, it does it differently for every sleeper. If you are small and weigh less than 130 pounds, you should feel like you are on a cloud on the top of the mattress with there being very little to body contouring. If you are a medium sleeper who is between 130 to 200 pounds, then you will notice that you have some sinkage and you will get a bit of a hug from the mattress.

If you are a heavier sleeper who is over the 200-pound mark, then you will notice that you will be sinking more into the transitional support layer which creates more support and will hold a balanced sinkage level.

What really gives the Purple mattress its unique feel is the way that the materials respond and support various weights.  Any of your major pressure points will find the relief from pressure that they need in order to allow you to be feel rested and recovered by time that morning rolls around.

I really loved the feel of this mattress. The ability of this mattress to really displace the weight and help to maintain stable comfort and support is really impressive. The contour of the mattress is similar to latex and there is not a direct forming of the materials around your body, which helps you to avoid that nasty stuck feeling. When you switch positions while on the purple mattress, you will notice that the layers respond much quicker than latex or regular memory foam.


You should purchase this mattress if you are looking for a mattress that sleeps quite cool, does not have a lot of motion transfer, wanting a medium firm type of feel, want rounded contour, want some bounce and a decent price range. The Purple mattress has all this and much more. They offer a 100-night trial and range in sizes from a Twin all the way to a California King mattress.  Overall this is a great mattress that will help you rest better and give you that night sleep that you have been craving.
