Purple was founded by brothers Tony and Terry Pearce in 2015. The Pearce brothers have spent most of their high-tech careers advancing the world of cushioning. With the Purple bed, they put all of their research into making the world’s greatest mattress — and they figured out how to do it so everyone can afford one.
Purple currently offers three mattresses models: The Purple Mattress, Purple Hybrid, and Purple Hybrid Premier. It also offers an adjustable base, a platform base, seat cushions, pillows, and special stretchy sheets.
Here is a basic breakdown of the three different Purple mattresses:
The Purple Mattress (Q $1,099)
Available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King, Split King
Previously known as the Original Purple, this model is good for a back or stomach sleeper. It has a base layer of high-density polyurethane foam for support and a middle layer of softer support foam. The top layer is two inches of the unique Purple Grid cushioning material. Different from the Original Purple, which is no longer available, this model now has more edge support and a SoftFlex knit fabric cover.
Purple Hybrid (Q $1,599)
Available in Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King, and Split King
Previously Known as Purple.2, the maker suggests this model for back sleepers and more slender sleepers. This hybrid model brings together the company's original cushioning grid comfort layer and high density foam with a core support layer of pocket spring coils. This means that it will have more bounce and be more responsive than the original grid and foam model.
Purple Hybrid Premier (Q $2,199–$2,999)
Available in Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King, and Split King
Firmness: Medium (3-inch); Medium Soft (4-inch)
Previously known as Purple.3 and Purple.4, this hybrid mattress is composed of multiple materials. The 7.5-inch support layer is made with responsive pocketed coils. On top of that, the middle layer is an inch of high-density foam. Then, customers have to choose between a three-inch (Q $2,199) or a four-inch (Q $2,999) top layer.
The 3-inch is a good fit for couples who have different sleeping positions and people who don't have one set sleeping position.
The 4-inch is most comfortable for side sleepers and full-figured sleepers.
You can try out and purchase a Purple mattress at select retail locations, including Bed Bath & Beyond, Denver Mattress, HOM Furniture, Macy's, Mattress Firm, and Sleep Experts. They can also be purchased directly from Purple at two Utah showrooms or at purple.com. The following purchase policies apply with a mattress purchase direct from Purple.
Each Purple mattress features the company's proprietary Smart Comfort grid technology on its upper layer, covered in a special white powder. Rather than a memory foam layer for support, this layer of hyper-elastic polymer looks kind of like a big purple waffle, with lots of negative space.
This means that Purple mattresses can provide pressure relief while still supporting your spine. Additionally, the polymer material doesn't retain heat the way that a memory foam mattress does.
This comfort grid layer causes all Purple mattresses to be rated as Universal Firmness, making them good for side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers. While each mattress has a little different feel, the firmness level is moderate, supportive, and comfortable for each sleeping position.
Its meant to feel weightless. The more grid material, the more weightless. So, for the Purple Hybrid Premier, the most expensive mattress, you can choose between three and four inches on top. Three inches is supposed to feel like weightless support and the four-inch grid option is supposed to feel like zero gravity. There's a reason why this option is suggested for side sleepers. It allows for your hips and shoulders to be cradled and supported with reduced pressure, while your waist and neck are still supported. It allows for cool feeling sleep while still supporting spinal alignment.
This proprietary cushioning material is also the foundation of the Purple Pillow and seat cushion.
Purple wants to make your shopping experience as pleasant as possible, and that includes offering a variety of payment options to suit your specific needs. This mattress company offers financing through Affirm on its website.
Affirm allows you to pay for the purchase in installments, spread out of a period of months, with annual percentage rates (APRs) as low as 0 percent, depending on your credit. You can pre-qualify online without affecting your credit.
Purple offers a very desirable mattress return policy. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you have the option to return the product within 100 days for a full refund. You just have to spend at least 21 nights' sleep on it before you contact customer service to return.
This gives you the chance to see if the mattress is a good fit for your body.
Purple offers outstanding warranty coverage compared to its competitors. When you purchase a mattress from purple you are guaranteed a 10-year warranty coverage, whereas other mattress providers only offer a manufacturer's warranty for the products you purchase from them.
Purple offers discounts for military, first responders, and students. The company even has a referral program.
For shoppers who live in Alaska or Hawaii, it's not a risk-free trial. These people will get a full refund, less shipping, if they decide to return the mattress under the 100-night sleep trial policy. Unfortunately, this is a policy for many mattress brands, especially those that offer free shipping elsewhere.
Due to different restrictions, Purple mattresses have different shipping options, which can be a little confusing. Here is the basic outline:
The original Purple can only be ordered with free ground shipping. There is not white glove delivery. That means that it will ship with ground shipping to your home address and you have to carry it inside.
The Purple Hybrid can be shipped with free ground shipping, but shoppers have the option to upgrade to white glove delivery. This includes in-home setup and the option to have your old mattress removed.
The Purple Hybrid Premier is a little confusing. The Twin XL, Full, and Queen offer free ground shipping or free white glove, with in-home setup and mattress removal. The larger size King and Cal King mattresses aren't able to be shipped with ground, due to their weight. They each weigh more than 200 pounds, so white glove is the only option, but it is free. Split King purchases ship in two boxes, so this isn't an issue.
Neither of the hybrid mattresses offer a regular Twin. Sizes start at Twin XL. This will only impact a small number of shoppers who are looking to fit a regular Twin on to an existing bed frame, platform bed, or base that isn't XL.
We just started using Purple products and feel this is the next generation of great mattress ingenuity. I can't believe anything else being as comfortable and supportive. Thank you, thank you for the amazing sleep Purple.
Thought it would be amazing but after a while it gathers dust and it's hard ti get rid of it because of the material.
Best sleep I’ve ever had. Helps my back from aching since I started using purple.
kinda very like sleeping on a trampoline if i’m being completely honest. Some people find it very comfortable but i did not
We just started using Purple products and feel this is the next generation of great mattress ingenuity. I can't fathom anything else being as comfortable and supportive. Thank you, thank you for the better sleeping Purple.
There was a lot of hype about the purple mattresses and they are very nice but to me they are not life changing
While we didn’t like our Purple, they made our refund process super easy, and painless. Would definitely recommend!
My mom just purchased the second generation purple mattress and IT IS AWESOME! It supports your back and actually caters to your shoulders and parts of your body that are usually uncomfortably fighting a flat hard mattress.
Purple seems so very overpriced for a foam mattress. We were going to buy one and they are just so much more expensive than other similar offerings with no obvious reason to charge more. We opted to go a different route.
We’ve just purchased 2 Purple mattresses and have loved them! I look forward to taking a nap every day on these. I wish the pricing was a lot cheaper, but have been happy overall with them.
The purple bed is on the expensive side, but worth every penny! I have had back problems for years and have gone through several beds. This bed really conforms to your body to help your muscles so that you sleep better!
I purchased a purple mattress which came with a full money back guarantee and a complimentary seat cushion. I selected a different mattress after 30 days and purple honored their guarantee without hesitation or hassle
The pillow and bed are amazing can’t recomend them enough! It keeps you cool and comfortable all night every night
We recently purchased a Purple mattress. It isn't my favorite mattress ever but I do love that they delivered it and removed my old mattress. They were very friendly and I love that if you are unhappy there is a 100 day return policy which is much longer than other companies which I love. I feel that the price of the mattress was competitive with other mattress companies with a similar product.
Purple mattresses are so comfortable and so useful. I love them because I sleep so soundly.

My husband and I were both experiencing shoulder pain when we would wake up in the morning so a friend of ours told us to buy a purple mattress. We bought one for Christmas this last year online and we love it. It was conveniently delivered right to our house and we were able to easily move it to the bed. Mattress is comfortable and even tho it does take some getting used to at first I now love it and my morning shoulder pain is gone. It was a great purchase for us. Make sure to buy the purple sheets and the mattress cover too.
I bought a queen and thought no matter what it would feel great on my bad back, but I toss and turn more on this mattress than before. I Wish I would have sent it back in the first 30 days and bought a different one somewhere else. My sister loves hers but not me:(
Comfortable mattress. Keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Good support for your back and joints.
Many of my friends were constantly telling me how I absolutely NEEDED a purple mattress! I was always unsure until I tested out the mattress myself and loved it! I loved it so much I had to buy one for myself! My recent mattress was causing me back pain and it was completely uncomfortable to sleep, but since I bought this mattress, it has left my body feeling so comfortable and relaxed as I lay in bed to sleep.
I love my Purple mattress. I have back problems and this mattress has been a life saver!
Purple mattresses are nothing like your current mattress, they form to your body and support your back and neck which are the most vital pieces of the body, so shouldn't you protect them? Do that with purple.
I recently purchased Purple sheets and I love them. They are soft and very comfortable. I don't own a Purple mattress myself, but I have tried them and they are very comfortable. I hope to purchase one in the future.
very good prices and good advertisement. tried out the bed and it was OK quality

This is a local company to me. They are full of integrity and take care of all their customers. The product is well worth the price and comfort.
I have a purple mattress and LOVE it. Highly recommend using this brand, it is not too soft but not firm. It is JUST right Also their customer service is great
Love this bed. My daughter got it for me for my birthday thinking I absolutely needed to have it. I have a lot of back pain and this mattress has helped a lot.
I love love love my purple mattress!! I used to have such a hard time getting comfortable when I slpt. Now I sleep great, and I'm comfortable all night!!!
Purple has some very comfortable mattresses! I love buying my mattresses at their store because of how helpful they are with customers. They also have great seat cushions!
While being happy with my purchase, I was very upset with the service and website when I had an inquiry about the powder inside the mattresses. Having allergies, I worry about what I could be inhaling in my sleep but Purple has never provided a clear answer as to what it is.
We have an earlier version of the Purple mattress and we love it! Our kids are always on our bed complaining that we have the best bed! We've had our mattress for quite some time and it's not showing any signs of wear. I miss it when we go on vacation. We sleep in cheep motels with lame beds and I can't wait to get home to my own bed!
I personally have not used the product but this reviews is for the customer service department of Purple. I tried to reach out multiple times and was continuously strung on with no one even trying to to answer my question or blatantly hanging up. i was extremely unimpressed with how i was treated and how they acted towards me a potential customer.
The Purple mattress is extremely squishy and comfortable. The mattress also comes with a reclinable bed and a remote. The full purple bed package (mattress, remote, frame) is fantastic, you can set it how you need to sleep well, or set it up so you are practically sitting so you can work on things.
Purple mattresses are the only mattress that I will sleep on. I’ve used purple matresses for the last year I will never never go back. These matresses stay in such good condition for so long.
I wasn't impressed with my experience with Purple. I found customer service hard to work with and the product to be sub-par for the price point.
I will never sleep on another mattress after using this one. It’s extremely comfortable and doesn’t hurt my back at all. I fall asleep instantly with this mattress!
Fantastic new technology. Their advertisements are what brought me to them and many i know have been extremely pleased with the results. Very friendly to those with back pain who are restless sleepers. Truly one of a kind.
Purple mattresses catch and cushion me comfortably. I confess, I've been tempted to just flop onto a Purple mattress and let it catch me. The effect is very satisfying. If I could have any mattress in the world, I'd purchase from Purple.
Seriously the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in!! I would wake up with a sore back in any other bed I ever slept in! I finally found a mattress that I love to sleep on! I always wake up well rested and ready to start my day!
Purple mattresses are SOOOOO nice... They are the most comfiest mattress.. I never want to climb out of bed because it is so fabulous! Thankful that I cam across this amazing company because I have a sore back and now I don't wake up every morning in more pain... LOVE my Purple mattress
Absolutely LOVE my purple mattress! Second to none! Hands down the best mattress I have ever slept on.
I had back problem for the longest time. I heard about purple and decided to give it a try. It has helped a lot with my back. I dont have back pain anymore. My husband also loved it. Its not too soft or too hard for me, just perfect
its amazing! it's very comfortable. when my spouse gets out of bed i cannot feel it on my end. i sleep through the entire night. we got it for a very good deal and it was worth it.
well rested, slept like a baby all night. no more back or neck pain. the only negative is not wanting to get out of bed in the mornings because it is so relaxing. best sleep i have had in years.
SO comfortable and relaxing. i have to force myself out of bed in the mornings. I could lay in it all day. i feel rested at nights and wake up to no back aches.
I think they do a good job promoting their mattresses with their "viral" videos. The "raw egg test" is unique and gets my attention. When I am ready for a new mattress, I will definitely take a look at Purple.
This is the best mattress I have ever slept on! The company is very trustworthy and they have the best mattresses on the planet!!
i only give it a 4 because the price. But my niece has this bed and i had to try it. after a few months i gave in and bought one. i LOVE it! most comfort i have had in years. i tell everyone they need to buy one!
Love my purple bed. Best mattress I have owned. Will buy another one when I need to.
the most comfortable bed i have slept inn in years. no back aches in the morning. i get a good night rest. wish i had this bed decades ago.
i took my pregnant daughter bed shopping and she bought a Purple bed! i am buying one as well. she got a king size and it is VERY comfortable. I actually go and visit her just to lay on her bed. She does not complain of anymore back aches, not asking for back massages anymore. I highly recommend this amazing bed.
