purple Mattress review

A cool and comforting mattress that is made up of three layers of foam and hyper elastic polymer material. Its thickness is about 9.5 inches and the mattress hugs and contours your body curves well.

  • The top layer comprises of 2 inches of hyper elastic polymer elastic that provides good comfort and cooling. The material is well amalgamated with the unique smart grid structure.
  • The middle layer is consists of 3.5 inch of polyurethane foam. This layer along with the top layer provides deep compression and support.
  • The third or the bottom layer forms the foundation of the mattress and is made of 4 inches of high density polyurethane foam that forms the base of the mattress.
  • Cover: The purple mattress comes with a durable, soft and stretchy cover that is a combination of polyester, viscose and polyester-lycra. It has a modern aesthetic design with a soft touch and feel. It comes in a zip off but the instructions with the mattress suggest not washing the cover in the washing machine and using cool water to wash if at all need be.

Firmness, Feel and Support

The Purple mattress scores over its contemporaries in terms of its unique design and technology used in building this piece of comfort and this score is based on hundreds of purple mattress reviews. The combination of the top two layers provide ideal comfort and support to almost all kinds of sleepers.

On the firmness scale the mattress scores an average 6-6.5 which is well suited to not only different sleeping positions but also sleepers of different weights.

The mattress is known to spread the weight of the sleeper well and align with the natural curves of the body.

The smart grid design offers the best combo of support and comfort which goes a long way in satisfying the customers.

The mattress is especially appreciated by heavy sleepers, whose weight is evenly distributed and the pressure dissipated through the top layer.

Sinkage and Motion Transfer

Our Purple mattress review is based on the first hand experiences of users who have used the Purple mattress and are ready to offer their know-how with other future users. Let us see how well the Purple mattress scores in our sinkage test when tested in different positions.

  • On back or normal lying position: When lying on the back, the mattress gives a normal sinkage of about 2 inches.
  • On side: On the sides, the body weight shifts and concentrates to one side increasing the sinkage slightly to 2.5 inches.
  • On the edge: When sitting casually near the edge, the sinkage was about 3 inches. While sitting on the absolute edge, the sinkage increased to about 4 inches.
  • In the middle: If you want to see the one point sinkage of the mattress then stand in the centre of the mattress and the Purple scores a high at this position with about 5-5.25 inches of sinkage.

Like most of the foam mattresses the Purple mattress too is good at absorbing motions and movements and restricts its transmission to the other ends. The bounce generated by the mattress is quite unique and closely resembles the one exhibited by a latex mattress.

Warranty and Trial Period

The Purple mattress offers 10 years of warranty for any defects in the product, either in construction or manufacturing.

It also offers 100 nights trial period which is sufficient time for one to decide whether the products serves his/her purpose or not. If in the course of those 100 nights, you feel that the mattress is not suited for you, you can contact the company’s customer care to arrange an easy pick up.
