The Purple www.thesleeploft.com stands out among its peers with its distinctive feel, taking some getting used to before fitting perfectly for light to moderately sized sleepers. Heavier back sleepers may prefer something firmer.

Purple mattresses come packaged and come with free White Glove delivery service, offering 100 night risk-free trial so if it is not comfortable you can return it.

Pressure Relief

As with most bed-in-a-box mattresses, the Purple Mattress ships compressed and requires time to expand before being put to use. Buyers should first test its comfort before deciding if it suits their needs; should that prove unsuccessful they may return it within 100 days (a guarantee period applies for this purchase).

Purple Mattress features a proprietary gridded gel polymer top layer designed to provide pressure relief and contour to your body, relieving pain from key pressure points such as shoulders, hips and heels. Additionally, its grid promotes proper spinal alignment - although original Purple mattresses don't provide as deep contouring like memory foam or latex mattresses do - still offering effective pressure relief and suitable options for most types of sleepers.

Purple's gridded polymer grid helps increase airflow, helping prevent heat build-up and keeping you comfortable as you sleep. This feature makes this mattress significantly superior to memory foam mattresses which tend to trap body heat when sleeping on them, leaving users hot while they rest.

The Purple Mattress is also an ideal choice for light sleepers due to its excellent motion isolation properties. This means if you share a bed with another, their movements won't wake you up as they move about while sleeping. Furthermore, its ease-of-movement ranks higher than most all-foam beds and could make for an excellent solution for couples wanting to share sleeping arrangements.


Purple mattresses created a ripple in the bed-in-a-box industry when they first hit stores in 2013, quickly becoming one of the most acclaimed beds available. Unique to Purple is its proprietary gel polymer layer which gives it its signature squishy but firm feel.

This layer also makes the Purple mattress responsive and bouncy, providing optimal support for sleepers who experience difficulty with temperature regulation or night sweats, by helping promote airflow through the mattress to keep you cool throughout the night.

Purple beds feature an additional 3-inch layer of cooling "Comfort Poly Foam." This stretchy and durable material offers optimal breathability as it draws moisture away from your body - this also serves to prevent heat transfer and odor build-up.

Purple mattress covers feature an innovative material called SoftFlex that's soft-to-touch yet highly moisture wicking, perfect for the warmer temperatures of Arizona and beyond. Although not machine washable, this unique cover can still be spot cleaned using gentle detergent.

The original Purple mattress is medium-firm, making it suitable for back and side sleepers of all body weights. Heavier back sleepers may prefer firmer mattresses with enhanced lumbar support; hybrid models may offer better options due to their higher-density foundation that offers greater durability and greater support for heavier individuals.

Motion Isolation

Purple's proprietary grid layer helps the bed isolate motion, an advantage common among all-foam mattresses but lacking in innerspring or hybrid mattresses. Strong motion isolation means that light sleepers who often get disturbed by their partner's tossing and turning can move freely throughout their sleep without disturbing one another - an invaluable feature!

Purple Mattress features two inches of hyperelastic polymer Purple Grid at its core, which remains firm until pressure is applied, at which point it collapses to provide relief and provide pressure relief. This layer is covered by a soft yet breathable cover designed to promote airflow.

Above this layer lies a transition layer made up of high-density foam for increased support, followed by four inches of poly foam for durability and longevity.

Overall, the Purple Mattress is an ideal option for people of all body types and sleeping positions. Its medium-firm feel makes it suitable for back and side sleeping positions, two of the most prevalent. Furthermore, its pressure relief feature provides adequate sore hip/shoulder relief as well as sufficient bounce for combo sleepers who tend to roll towards the edges of their beds. Heavier individuals may require firmer mattresses with greater spinal alignment features.


The Purple mattress is an innovative bed-in-a-box option designed to offer the best of both worlds: soft comfort with strong support. Their proprietary Hyper-Elastic Polymer Grid collapses when pressure is applied but remains upright otherwise for enhanced spinal alignment and comfort. You can purchase one online or at their retail locations or partner stores like Sleep Country Canada.

The mattress features two inches of hyper-elastic polymer, designed to flex where you need it and absorb pressure, along with thousands of square air pockets that increase cooling and enhance breathability. Furthermore, there is a 3.5-inch transition layer and 4-inch polyurethane support layer.

Purple's foam layers are CertiPUR-US certified, meaning that they do not contain harmful chemicals like ozone depleters, formaldehyde, heavy metals and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Their mattress cover carries Greenguard Gold flame retardant certification; our testers found very minimal off-gassing when opening their boxes and they could quickly find comfort with this mattress.

Purple offers a 100-night risk-free trial period, providing over three months to assess if their bed meets your needs. If not, simply return it at no additional charge; should you decide to keep it, the 10-year warranty covers defects in construction as well as permanent body indentations of one inch or greater.
