Full New Purple Mattress Review

With a series of new bedding companies on the market and the original Purple bed still in the game, Purple launched its second generation of beds with 3 plush levels of scientific comfort to choose

This option of 2, 3, or 4 inches of Purple’s patented Smart Comfort Grid is what gives the company the scientifically magical soft-where-you-desire-it-firm-where-you-need-it comfort.

This Smart Comfort Grid will always use its patented comfort engineering to:

  • Skillfully adapt to your body’s unique pressure points for great comfort
  • Minimize motion transfer
  • Correctly align your spine in any sleep position
  • Remain temperature-neutral with the airflow-fostering grid design and Hyper-Elastic Polymer

What Type of Mattress is the New Purple?

The New Purple is a premium mattress which is available in 3 thickness levels to provide a personalized level of comfort and support. The reasoning behind the numbers is that they conform with the depth of the comfort grid system on the New Purple mattress.

The Purple 2 has 2″, the Purple 3 has 3″ and the Purple 4 has 4″ of the polymer grid, and all of the new Purple beds incorporate a spring system as the foundational layer.

The mattress offers great supportive lift, which helps sleepers move around in bed as well as change positions. Also, If you like a bouncy bed, you are truly going to find a lot to love in this mattress, as both its support and comfort layers feature plenty of buoyant lift.

How Firm is it?

The magic of this mattress is its ability to be simultaneously soft and firm, the deeper the mattress, the more plush and luxurious the comfort.

This implies that the thicker the grid of the mattress, the softer it is going to feel as you are able to sink in more.

The Smart Comfort Grid of option Purple 2 feels firm and the Responsive Support Coils in the bottom give a little more under the pressure points, which further leads to a little softer feel.

This option is most highly recommended for average-sized individuals as well as back sleepers.

The Purple 3 is soft with just enough firm to feel balanced. The 3″ of Smart Comfort Grid strikes the optimal balance and that is why it is most recommended for users who frequently change positions, couples with varied feel preference, and those who like the best of both worlds.

Additionally, it is also great for motion isolation, pressure relief, and natural airflow that keeps you cool.

The Purple 4 is the softest and most plush option of the Purple Mattress family as it offers an almost weightless feeling.

This allows you to have room to sink into the grid, and benefit from complete pressure relief and total spinal support in your most natural, healthy alignment.

It is highly recommended for side sleepers, and bulkier or very light individuals.

How Many Layers Does it have?

The Purple 2 mattress is 11 inches tall, the Purple 3 mattress is 12 inches tall and the Purple 4 mattress is 13 inches tall.

Here is the breakdown on the specifications of the New Purple mattress:

the new purple hybrid mattress' layers

The Purple 2 is the new-school classic bed that started it all, but now with some serious upgrades.

  • 2″ of Purple grid layer which is ideal for back sleepers as well as those who prefer a slightly firmer feel to their bed. In addition to this, it helps to provide great support and body-adaptive relief.
  • 7.5” of Responsive Support Coils that help to foster dynamic pressure relief as well as spinal alignment.

The Purple 3 is a medium firm mattress among the line. It includes a pocket coil system and thus will have some motion transfer. It will also offer a little bounce that is lacking in the original mattress. Additionally, it is a perfect balance of firm and soft for couples with mixed mattress-feel preferences who share the same bed.

  • 3″ of Purple grid layer which is optimal for sleep position changers.
  • 7.5” of Responsive Support Coils that help to promote spinal alignment and dynamic pressure relief.

The Purple 4 is a plush luxury mattress and you get 4″ of the gel layer which makes for a very heavy mattress. This option is so comfortable that you will never want to leave your bed again. It offers zero gravity-feel for deep, complete body relaxation, and it is an ideal option for sleepers with a soft mattress-feel preference.

  • 4″ of Purple grid layer which is perfect for any sleep position, and it is especially beneficial for side sleepers.
  • 7.5” of Responsive Support Coils that help to enhance dynamic pressure relief and spinal alignment.

How is Motion Transfer and Sinkage?

Considering just how bouncy the mattress is, the results for motion transfer and sinkage are pretty good. This is majorly due to the presence of individually wrapped coils, which are great at isolating motion.

So while you are likely to feel your partner moving around during the night, the amount of movement should certainly not be that extreme.

The sinkage results are fairly average and compatible with most mattresses on the market. In case of P 3 option, while you are likely to sink in a little into the hyperelastic polymer layer, the bounce from this area coupled with the lift of the pocketed coil system is going to leave you feeling like you are sleeping on top of your bed.

However, in case of P 4 option, you may experience slightly more sinkage and the P 2 exhibits just a little less. These results are consistent with how these beds  have performed, demonstrating that the three mattresses really do represent an evident gradient from firm option (Purple 2) to soft option (Purple 4).

Does it Sleep Hot?

No, the mattress does not sleep hot as it is designed with an open structure, and the comfort grid encourages a lot of quality air flow throughout the mattress, which keeps things from getting too hot.

In addition to this, the temperature neutral material used in the construction of the mattress offers instant pressure relief as well as pleasant body contouring.

Does it Have any Smell?

CertiPUR-US logoNo, the mattress does not have any smell as it uses CertiPUR-US certified polyurethane foam – 2.0 density.

This implies that it has the lowest toxicity out there.

In addition to this, it uses 100% non toxic materials, however, the mattress may have a faint “new mattress smell” that comes off as “woodsy or nutty” at first, but it fades away quickly.

Does it Require a Foundation?

The company recommends to use the Purple bed frames as they are very sturdy.

However, Purple doesn’t recommend using box springs as they do not provide the support you need.

The absolute best choice is the Powerbase or Purple adjustable bed. This Powerbase fits all of the new Purple beds, as well as the old ones.

What Type of Cover Does it Have?

The new Purple mattress cover is totally different, with a multi colored wave design. It is a different white hue with a wave of gray along with a Purple piping.

the new purple's coverIt is built with a spandex and polyester blend, making for a material that is thick and breathable.

Unlike the original Purple cover, the top of the New Purple mattress is stretchy and one piece, and does not have the geometric pattern with gel suffused bubbles.

Instead it is one piece that bounces back into place whenever you pull up on it and there is the word “Purple” embroidered into it so that you don’t restrict movement of the gel stuff beneath.

The cover is a little thicker than the original and it is not quite as noticeable. It seems like there is a separate piece which maybe removable or some foam topper on it but it is basically the polymer on both.

What is the Best Way to Care for the Mattress?

It is recommend to you use a mattress protector in order to protect your investment, and put it on before anyone sleeps on the mattress.

The mattress protector from the company itself is excellent. You can easily fit it on the mattress because it is made up of stretchy material that is waterproof on one side and soft on the other.

In addition to this, it has gathering around the mattress protector so it is easy to put on.

The design is totally new and while the cover of the mattress can zip off, the company recommends spot treating them if you need to clean the cover.

How Durable is the New Purple?

The pocketed coil system as well as the hyperelastic polymer work well together to make the New Purple mattress a highly durable bed.

So while you will spend some amount up front, it is sure to last for a long time.

Also, using a mattress protector can extend the life of your New Purple mattress while keeping spills and stains at bay, thus extending the life of your mattress.

The New Purple Mattress- Our Verdict

The New Purple features a hybrid design, which couples pocketed coils with the company’s Smart Comfort Grid, which is made up of hyperelastic polymer for a sleeping experience that focuses to be as pressure-relieving as it is supportive.

The grid is enclosed by a layer of foam edge support, which gives this area some structure and also allows you to use the entire surface area of the bed.

The new Purple mattress offers better edge support overall as you are not just relying on the gel but on a layer of foam around the perimeter so you can easily sit on the edge or sleep near the edge without feeling like you may fall off.

The New Purple mattress is much bouncier than the Original mattress and this mainly has to do with how the pocketed coil system integrates with the hyperelastic polymer in the comfort layer, thus creating a lift that keeps you placed on top of the mattress surface.

Stomach and back sleepers who prefer some bounce can go with the Purple 2. Side sleepers will like the Purple 3 and 4 while the Purple 4 will be the most plush out of them all.

In addition to this, the inclusion of edge support helps to amp up the overall stability of the bed, giving it a slight edge over the Original mattress.

So far the Purple 3 is popular, because it is in the middle of the two new Purple mattresses.

If you are seeking a long term solution as well as a higher quality bed, and if you sleep with someone who moves around a lot, then you will certainly love the new Purple.

We feel that although the price is higher than most online mattresses, the New Purple offers good long-term value especially for the more demanding sleepers.
