Purple is a 9.5-inch tall mattress constructed with a gel-like top and foam base which will be shipped to your door compressed in a bag. Check out the following detailed information to know the composition of the Purple mattress.

  • Cover - Constructed with a blend of polyester, viscose, and Lycra, the Purple mattress offers users a soft and breathable feel. The cover material is so thin that it allows air flowing into the mattress.  Lycra is a stretchy material which is often found in athletic clothing. And it helps wick moisture away from the body to help regulate the temperature.
  • Comfort Layer - The first layer of the Purple mattress is built with 2-inch Hyper-Elastic Polymer grid which has the pressure erasing function. This material is highly durable, and it can protect the layers beneath and provide great comfort. The Hyper-Elastic Polymer grip helps release people’s pressure across the grid by distributing weight.
  • Transition Layer - The layer below the comfort layer is 3.25-inch poly foam with a 1.8-pound density which acts to provide good compression support for the mattress. This layer also is the transition for the sleeper from the first layer to the base of the bed.
  • Base Layer - The third layer of the mattress is 4-inch poly foam with a 2-pound density which is regarded as the foundational support to tighten the structure and shape of the mattress.


One of the most significant advantages existing in Purple is that it can be simultaneously soft and firm. And the deeper the mattress is, the plusher and comfortable it is, which implies that the thicker the grid of the mattress, the softer users will feel.

The New Purple is available in 3 thickness levels including 2, 3, 4 inches to provide people with an exceptional level of support and comfort. The Purple 2 makes people feel firm, and its responsive support coils offer more under the pressure points, which results in a little softer feel. The Purple 3 makes people feel balanced when it comes to its softness and firmness. And the Purple 4 is the softest and most plush one for people which offers users an almost weightless feeling.

Motion Isolation

People need to confirm that whether the mattress can absorb the motion transfer when someone else is turning or gets in and out of bed during the night. Motion transfer will be one important element for people to consider, especially for the heavy sleepers. Purple mattress performs well in motion transfer, and it has minimal movement to other parts of the mattress.

Edge Support

Users will take a look at the edge support if they want to share the bed with a partner. Actually, the Purple mattress is designed to collapse under pressure. Therefore it may be lack of edge support. And its sinkage results are relatively average compared with most mattresses on the market.

Sleeping Hot

Designed with an open structure, Purple mattress performs good, and it doesn’t sleep hot. Besides, the comfort grid forms lots of quality airflow throughout the mattress, which prevents things from getting too hot.

Minimal Off-gassing

The Purple mattress has no smell due to its CertiPUR-US certified polyurethane foam - 2.0 density. It has the lowest toxicity out there. Furthermore, it uses 100% non-toxic materials which may have a little new mattress smell. However, it fades away quickly a short period later.


The hyperelastic polymer, as well as the pocketed coil system, work well together to make the Purple mattress a highly durable bed. Meanwhile, users who have the Purple mattress had better use a mattress protector, which makes the span of the mattress longer.

Customer Service


The Purple company offers users a 10-year warranty and it also provides superior product durability as well as quality so that people can enjoy healthful and comfortable rest. The warranty is only valid for people who thereafter use the mattress for personal consumer use. However, it won’t affect any resale of the product whether it's new or used.

Return Policy

It offers a 100-night risk-free trial for users to experience the new mattress and get a full refund if they decide to return it within 100 days. Furthermore, the company will send people to your house to pick up the mattress for free.


The Purple mattress will be shipped in 2 to 3 days with free white glove delivery in 48 states. It is delivered in a flat box rather than rolled up and shrink wrapped. Besides, people don’t need to worry about how to get it to the bed and the transport workers will help people to do that.
