Who is this Purple Mattress recommended for?

Its innovative Purple Grid technology adapts to the shape and weight of your body. The grid provides the necessary support to keep your spine aligned while ensuring a comfortable and restful sleep experience. Here are some recommendations along with reasoning:

Recommended for

The Purple Mattress is best suited for the following types of sleepers.

Side Sleepers

The Purple Mattress’s polymer elastic grid structure offers exceptional pressure relief by cradling the hips and shoulders. These are also common pressure points when sleeping on your side.

Plus, in “purple Mattress” also has motion isolation feature which helps to sleep peacefully without any movement disturbance. This feature helps reduce discomfort and allows side sleepers to enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep.

The side sleepers of average or light weight (230-pound approx.) will find it comfortable to sleep in.

So, in my opinion, overall, the Purple NewDay Mattress’s technical features, particularly the Purple polymer elastic Grid, make it an ideal choice for side sleepers seeking pressure relief, customized support on hips and shoulder, and temperature regulation with 1400+ air channels to ensure a comfortable and uninterrupted night’s sleep.

A costumer named “Vanessa argabright” purchased Purple Mattress and here she has to say after using it.

“I had done all the research, and it was down to Purple or Casper I chose Purple and I am very satisfied. It’s a heavy mattress but nothing uncontrollable. Mine is a Twin XL, Came well packaged. I opened in garage and had a friend help carry in. There was never any odor. I slept the first night I opened it. Initially you would think it too soft when you push down by hand however when laying. down you are fully supported and feel like you’re floating. I am 6’ and have a very comfortable sleep on the side or back. It is also a good 5 degrees cooler than my old foam mattress. A big thumbs up from me”

Back Sleepers

Back sleepers require a mattress that supports the natural curve of the spine. The Purple Grid technology, with its hyper-elastic polymer material, is designed to distribute body weight evenly, providing support where needed. This helps maintain proper spinal alignment, pressure relief from hips and shoulder. It helps to reduce the risk of waking up with a sore back.

With its GelFlex Technology back sleeper feel cool temperature. And the material of SoftFlex cover restrain from harmful allergies. this top cover made of recycled, food-grade and food-contact-grade materials. 

So, recommendation is on win win situation if sleeper weigh less than 230 pounds or not fall in heavy weight category.

Here is the review from Michael j. let’s look at what he has to say about Purple Mattress after using it.

“With so many options on the market it was difficult to narrow the contenders to one. After a little research, we visited a Purple store and tried out their product. We’ve had our original Purple mattress for over a month but knew the first night we made the right decision as I’m back sleeper. Great customer service from Phong at the Seattle U Village store.”

Here’s another review that caught my eye as the costumer who bought “purple Mattress” is a patient named as “Charles k.” let’s see what he has to say:

“I have 3 rods in my back. This is the best sleep I’ve had in months.”

After checking this review, I must say Purple Mattress can do wonders for such types of people who are facing some sort of medical issues.

Who are Not recommended for Purple Mattress

While the Purple mattress is a great choice for most people. But it cannot cater to all types of people. As such it is not recommended for the following people.

Stomach Sleepers

The Purple Mattress is not recommended for people who like to sleep on their stomach (again it depends on sleeping and weight preferences approx. 230 pounds)

Stomach sleepers require a firmer surface to keep their spine aligned properly. If a mattress is too soft, it can cause the hips to sink too deeply into the mattress, leading to an unnatural curve in the spine and potential discomfort.

While Purple mattresses offer support, they may not provide the level of firmness needed for some stomach sleepers to maintain a neutral spinal position as well as pressure support to shoulders. Stomach sleepers can find other “purple mattress” varieties for comfortable sleep.

Heavy Sleepers

Heavier individuals (those significantly above the average weight 230 pounds) may not find adequate support Purple mattress. 

Heavier sleepers tend to exert more pressure on the mattress that causes core sinkage from hips and spine. 

the Hyper-Elastic Polymer grid may compress more for heavier individuals, potentially affecting the mattress’s ability to maintain its original support and comfort.

So, if we conclude on basis of pressure support and hips, spine alignment It’s not the best choice for really heavy people (approx. above 250 pounds) in any sleeping position because it might not provide enough support. 

For everyone else, like those who sleep on their side or back, it can be a good option because it gives a nice balance of comfort and support.

People with Certain Medical Conditions

Individuals with specific medical conditions or mobility issues may find it challenging to use a Purple mattress.

The Purple Mattress has a responsiveness due to the grid structure. Some people with mobility issues or medical conditions that require specific types of support or mattress surfaces may not find the Purple mattress suitable for their needs.

What are the Features of Purple Mattress?

This Purple Mattress innovative design offers a one-of-a-kind sleep experience. So, Making the Purple Mattress a top choice for those seeking a comfortable and supportive bed. Here are some features of Purple Mattress.

Adapts instantly

The key to Purple’s motion isolation is its Hyper-Elastic Polymer grid. This grid is made up of individual, flexible squares that can move independently of each other.

So that no delay between movement and the mattress response means less sleep disturbance.

Temperature stability

Unlike traditional mattresses, modern materials help dissipate heat and prevent building temperatures. Due to its 1400+ Air channels makes it unique and helps to cool down temperature when its needed. So, when you sleep over “Purple mattress” you will feel relaxed and calm. 

“KM IN PA” liked purple mattress cooling temperature. Here is the review which he shared on amazon after buying.

“Extremely comfortable. I agree with the professional reviewers who stated that the support was medium/firm. If you enjoy firm this mattress is for you. A perfect feel. One notch below a true “hard” (IMO) support. I could notice an actual “cooling” underneath me which was amazing. On the first night I used an extra lite cover blanket and had a very restful night. A very slight odor which lasted less than 24 hours.It arrived in AM in a heavy vinyl zippered duffle bag shape which is reusable for TBD(?).I just opened the window and closed bedroom door until bedtime to address this. Negative? The price for a twin was steep but those TV commercials drew me in.”

Great pressure relief and comfort

The Purple Mattress is designed to offer excellent pressure relief as it contains a polymer elastic grid. This grid is designed specifically for pressure points, such as the shoulders and hips. When you lie on the purple mattress, the grid starts providing a cushioning effect.

“kelam” loved his Purple Mattress and left a review so that other people get an idea about benefits of Purple Mattress

“If you struggle with pressure points this mattress is for you. Every other mattress on the planet pushes back harder the harder you push so you get pressure points. The purple gel grid of square columns in this mattress push back only until the column collapses. Then the weight is distributed around the pressure point to columns that haven’t collapsed. The result is greatly diminished pressure points. Genius! Wish I had invented it!”

Superior support

Stable base foam layers provide extensive support to keep the body aligned throughout the night.

CertiPUR-US Certified

Purple mattresses are typically CertiPUR-US certified, which means they are made without harmful chemicals and meet strict standards for performance, emissions, and durability.

Testing Purple Mattress with Different Weights and Sleeping Positions

The suitability of the Purple Mattress for sleepers depends on individual preferences and needs, but here’s a general assessment for light weight side, back, and stomach sleepers (approx. 130 pound):

Light weight Sleepers in all three positions

Generally, lightweight side sleepers (approx. 130 pounds) may find the Purple Mattress quite suitable. Purple Grid technology offers excellent pressure relief. That is crucial for side sleepers to alleviate pressure on the hips and shoulders. The mattress conforms to the body’s shape, providing the necessary cushioning for a comfortable night’s sleep.

So, the feedback from many clients for “purple mattress” are good for side sleepers due to its edge support, polymer elastic technology for hips and shoulder support. And finally, top layer of SoftFlex to restrain from hypo allergies makes its unique.

Light Weight Back Sleepers

Lightweight back sleepers can also benefit from the Purple Mattress. The Purple Grid provides adequate support and helps maintain proper spinal alignment.  Light weight sleeper doesn’t sink from core due to its polymer elastic grid technology. And the GelFlex technology with 1400+ air channels reduce temperature and sleepers feel cooler temperature. 

The results of lightweight back sleepers are good as “purple mattress” have unique and advanced technology. the reasoning behind this preference lies in the way it enhances relaxation and support for specific body parts, particularly the lower back.

Light Weight Stomach Sleepers

Lightweight Stomach sleepers may want to consider a firmer mattress to better accommodate their sleeping position and prevent potential issues related to alignment and sinking. It provides the necessary support for the neck and head. It does not sink from midsection. 

Lightweight stomach sleeper also has edge of SoftFlex top cover as it contains no harmful material and keeps you safe from allergies. 

So, the feedback for lightweight stomach sleepers is good to go. Most of participants showed appreciation towards its polymer elastic grid, GelFlex and SoftFlex grid technology.

But it’s totally their personal choice to accommodate themselves. As we found it is good for lightweight stomach sleepers somehow.

Average weight Sleepers in all Three Positions (approx. 130 to 230 pounds)

The suitability of the Purple Mattress for average-weight sleepers can vary depending on their preferred sleeping positions, and here’s a general assessment.

Average weight Side Sleepers (someone who weigh 130 to 230 pounds)

The Purple Grid technology provides excellent pressure relief by conforming to the body’s shape. Particularly at the hips and shoulders common pressure points for side sleepers. This feature helps alleviate discomfort and promotes a comfortable night’s sleep.

This targeted pressure relief allows these areas to relax and sink comfortably. 

So, in my assessment it’s a good investment to buy “purple mattress” for your good sleep. The average weight side sleeper finds it good with balanced weight distribution and good support on core body due to its Grid technology.

Average weight Back Sleepers

The Purple Grid offers adequate support to maintain proper spinal alignment. It is essential for back sleepers. The combination of support and comfort typically works well for this sleeping position due to polymer elastic technology. It also does not have complain sinking from core side. It makes your pressure points in support and relieved such as neck, shoulder, and head. 

The other GelFlex technology does wonders for reducing temperature. 


So, the conclusion on average weight back sleeper is also good as we had good feedback from numerous participants. It happens because of its GelFlex technology, polymer elastic technology as well as pressure relieve support from sinking.

Average weight Stomach Sleepers

It’s designed to provide a balance of support and cushioning, which might not be firm enough for stomach sleepers, potentially leading to alignment problems. When sleeping on your stomach, the sides of your pelvis dig too deep into the SoftFlex top layer. As a result, this slightly misaligns the hips and shoulder from the rest of the body. 

For some stomach sleepers, this may not provide enough firmness and support, as there is limited resistance to the body’s weight sinking down on the mattress.

As the assessment for average weight stomach sleeper should try some other variety of Purple mattress, it’s advisable to try different models.

Heavy Sleepers in all three positions (over 230 pounds)

The suitability of the Purple Mattress for heavy-weight sleepers depends on several factors. It includes their preferred sleeping positions and personal comfort preferences. Here’s a general assessment.

Heavy weight Side Sleepers

Heavy-weight side sleepers may find the Purple Mattress less ideal. While Purple Grid technology offers pressure relief and support. it might not provide sufficient support for heavier individuals, causing them to sink too deeply into the mattress. 


for heavier individuals, it may not distribute weight as effectively, and its leads to increase pressure on hips and shoulders. 

Now if we talk about final verdict from our general assessment, we sadly do not recommend Purple mattress due to its sinking and pressure point misalignment in hips, shoulder, pelvis, and spine.

Heavy weight Back Sleepers

The unique construction of the Purple Mattress, with its Hyper-Elastic Polymer grid. It may not provide the optimal support for heavier individuals back sleeping. They sink too deep from the core of the body, this sinkage leads to spine misalignment, and creates pressure on hips and shoulder. 

Feedback from multiple participants assess purple mattress is not suitable for heavy weight back sleepers. But you can choose some ither mattresses from the purple mattresses range.

Heavy weight Stomach Sleepers

Stomach sleeping is generally discouraged for heavy-weight individuals due to the increased risk of spinal misalignment. 

the Hyper-Elastic Polymer grid can compress under the weight of heavier individuals.

When sleeping on the stomach, the body’s weight is concentrated in the torso area. If the mattress is too soft, it can cause the hips to sink too deeply into the mattress, leading to an unnatural curve in the spine.

Hyper-Elastic Polymer grid may not provide the level of firmness to stop excessive sinkage for heavier individuals.

Sadly we do not recommend purple mattress for heavy weight stomach sleeper due to pressure on hips, spine and neck.

We highly recommend exploring our review of the Purple Plus Mattress. Dive into the details to make an informed decision and discover the unique features that set it apart for an enhanced sleep experience.

Ease of Use and Customer Service/Support of the Purple Mattress

How easy is it to Unbox and off gas

Unboxing and dealing with any smell when you first get your Purple Mattress is easy.

Here’s how to do it:

Take the mattress box to your bedroom and open it up carefully. You might need help because the mattress can be heavy.

 Once you’ve opened the box, gently lift out the mattress and put it on your bed frame or foundation.

Your mattress will be wrapped in plastic. Carefully unwrap and remove the plastic cover. Be careful not to cut the mattress.

After removing the plastic, let the mattress sit in your room for a few hours. This helps any initial smell, known as off-gassing, to go away.

While the mattress is sitting, open the windows and doors to let fresh air in. This helps the smell disappear faster.

Once the smell is gone, you can put your bedding on the mattress and sleep comfortably. It’s that simple. The smell is temporary and will go away after a little while.
