Purple Mattress is an updated version of original Purple Comfort and one of the most unique mattresses on the market.
The new model features SoftFlex cover and premium edge support, which further improves the comfort of the original.
This is not your regular or a memory foam mattress, but a completely new type made out of gel-like material. Let’s find out if it’s any good.
Parts Of Purple Mattress
Purple Mattress consists of 3 important and distinct parts: SoftFlex cover, 2 Purple Grids, and a dual-layered comfort foam on the bottom.
SoftFlex cover features an ultra-soft wave-knitted surface that greatly improves the flexibility of Purple Grids. This layer can stretch up to 15x of its original size without tearing.
It has a unique, silicone-like feel to it. This material is very breathable and has over 2500 air channels, so you will remain cool throughout your good night’s sleep.
This makes it a great choice if you are living in a place that has a warm climate. SoftFlex cover is made out of the following fabrics: Polyester (67%), Viscose (29%), and Lycra (4%).
It is important to note that this material does not support machine wash and you should clean it manually with detergent.
On the bottom, we have a comfort foam that is 4’’ thick and weighs 2 lbs. It consists of 2 layers. First is a softer layer that is responsive to your body’s shape and weight. The bottom layer is the foundation of the mattress, and as such is firm and provides stability.
Purple Grids are placed in the middle and they are secret weapons of this mattress. They are made out of a patented ultra-elastic polymer that is wrapped up in non-toxic and hypoallergenic powder coating.
This material has taken over 20 years to develop and it has been rigorously tested to ensure a high level of quality. It may feel a bit weird when you begin sleeping on it, but most people fell in love with it after a period of adjustment.
This material equally supports different kinds of sleep: the back, stomach, and side equally. I sleep on the stomach and have been pleasantly surprised how the material felt on my hips. It provided a lot of pressure relief, without creating a feeling of sinking. Purple Grids are 3.5’’ thick and weigh 1.8 lbs.

Advantages Of Purple Grids
Usually, you have the option to choose between hard, medium, and soft type of mattress. However, they all have their set of problems and don’t support our bodies most optimally.
Purple grids mold under your pressure points while simultaneously supporting the other parts of your body. The result of this is a mattress that’s neither too hard to make your body ache, nor too soft to destroy your posture.
This way, your back can fall into its natural alignment. This is an extra guarantee that you will wake up feeling well-rested and won’t develop chronic pain over time. As you get up, the material quickly regains its original shape.
Although Purple Grids are supportive, we wouldn’t recommend them for people weighing over 250 pounds. A coil-supported mattress is a much better option as it provides some resistance. For that purpose, you should check Purple Hybrid Premiere.
Purple Grid Vs. Memory Foam
When comparing with regular Memory Foam, The Purple Grid is superior in many ways. Memory Foam features a compression that is heat activated. Because of this, as your body warms up during the night, the material begins collapsing.
The result is less cushioning and the possibility of developing chronic aches. Memory Foam also retains much of its heat, which can lead to an unpleasant sleeping experience.
Purple Grid, on the other hand, dissipates all of the unwanted heat, so you won’t find yourself sinking further and further. This material is also more durable than your regular memory foam, which will ultimately save you money.
Price And Shipping
Purple Mattress falls into average between budget and luxury mattresses. It ranges from $649 to $1,299, depending on the size you want. You can choose between Twin XL (38’’ x 80’’), Full (54’’ x 76’’), Queen (60’’ x 80’’), King (76’’ x 80’’), and Cal King (72’’ x 84’’).
Also, you have the option to choose a free product to go along with your mattress (sheets, pillow, or mattress protector).
Shipping is free and your Purple Mattress will arrive in a compressed form. Before you use it, you will have to allow it to inflate for 24 to 72 hours. Purple Mattress will do its job on any type of foundation. You can put it on Purple PowerBase, adjustable base, or right on the floor.
All in all, Purple Mattress offers premium quality at a reasonable price. Its Purple Grids are successful in preserving posture and alleviating discomfort from the pressure points.
