Purple launched in 2015 and quickly became popular as a direct-to-consumer mattress company. Purple’s first mattress was the Original Purple mattress, an all-foam option featuring an innovative Smart Comfort Grid composed of Hyper-Elastic Polymer. After the success of the Original Purple mattress, Purple launched the New Purple mattress.

The New Purple mattress uses the same Smart Comfort Grid offered by the Original Purple mattress. However, unlike the Original Purple mattress, the New Purple mattress allows customers to select between a 2-inch, 3-inch, or 4-inch Smart Comfort Grid. Additionally, the New Purple mattress uses a hybrid design that pairs two foam layers with an innerspring layer for added durability, pressure relief, and support.

Our full review of the New Purple mattress will share detailed information on the mattress to help you make your decision.

Construction

The New Purple mattress is composed of several distinct layers. The top layer of the mattress is the Smart Comfort Grid composed of Hyper-Elastic Polymer. The New Purple offers three thickness options for this layer, which is designed to offer pressure relief and support. Each New Purple mattress option is assigned a different name based on the thickness of the Smart Comfort Grid. The Purple.2 features a 2-inch Smart Comfort Grid, the Purple.3 features a 3-inch Smart Comfort Grid, and the Purple.4 features a 4-inch Smart Comfort Grid.

The next layer is a thin layer of polyurethane foam designed to transition between the Smart Comfort Grid and the coil system. The support layer of the mattress is composed of 7.5 inches of pocketed coils. This layer is designed to offer additional pressure relief and durability.

The final base layer of the New Purple mattress is a thin layer of polyurethane foam that serves as a foundation for the coil system.

The cover of the mattress uses a blend of polyester, viscose, and lycra. It is designed to be breathable and stretchy, allowing it to move with the Smart Comfort Grid.

The height of the mattress varies by the thickness of the Smart Comfort Grid. The Purple.2 is 11 inches tall. The Purple.3 is 12 inches tall. The Purple.4 is 13 inches tall.

Firmness

The New Purple mattress offers three different options for the thickness of the Smart Comfort Grid, and this also leads to three different firmness options. On the 10-point firmness scale, the Purple.2 rates around 6.5, so it can be considered a medium-firm mattress. The Purple.3 rates about 5.5, so we consider it a medium option. The Purple.4 rates around, 4.5, so it could be considered medium soft. Most sleepers prefer a medium or medium-firm mattress, so the Purple.2 and the Purple.3 can probably accommodate most sleepers. However, sleepers who like a more plush feel or who weigh under 130 pounds may prefer the Purple.4.

The New Purple mattress comes in all standard sizes except twin size. It is also available as a split king. The table below shares the list price for each mattress size.

New Purple Mattress Breakdown

Several factors can contribute to the quality and restfulness of your sleep. Below, we’ll share more information on the New Purple mattress’s construction, durability, conforming, edge support, temperature regulation, off-gassing, and motion isolation. Read our methodology to learn more about our review process.

Is it made from quality materials?

The New Purple mattress uses high-quality materials to help promote a good night’s sleep. Like the Original Purple mattress, the New Purple mattress’s top layer is one of its most innovative and impressive features. This layer uses Hyper-Elastic Polymer to compose the Smart Comfort Grid. This polymer grid system is springier and more durable than most traditional foams used in mattresses.

The innerspring layer is another high-quality component of the New Purple mattress. This layer uses durable, individually wrapped coils that help reduce motion transfer.

The polyurethane foam used in the New Purple mattress is CertiPUR-US certified, which means it has been tested for mercury, lead, formaldehyde, and other substances. Additionally, Purple received the VOC CleanAir Gold Certification from Intertek.

How long will it last?

Hybrid mattresses typically last from 6-8 years. Due to the high-quality materials used in its construction, we would expect the New Purple mattress to last at least as long as the average hybrid mattress. If your New Purple mattress does not last as long as expected, a 10-year warranty can offer additional support and protection.

How well does it conform to my body?

The New Purple mattress offers exceptional conforming. The Smart Comfort Grid is responsive, so it can adjust to your body weight to provide cushioning and pressure relief where you need it most. Additionally, the innerspring layer uses individually-wrapped coils, which can offer greater even contouring.

While all of the New Purple mattresses offer conforming, the thicker Smart Comfort Grids in the Purple.3 and the Purple.4 may offer greater conforming than the Purple.2.

Is the edge supportive?

The New Purple mattress features Plexus side panels, which add edge support while allowing airflow. The foam layers of the New Purple may still compress some when you approach the edge of the bed, but the reinforced edge should prevent excessive sinking. This can make it more comfortable to sit or sleep near the perimeter of the bed without it feeling unstable.

Does it sleep hot?

The New Purple mattress offers multiple features that should provide a cooler night’s sleep than many mattresses on the market. The Smart Comfort Grid top layer promotes airflow, which can help dissipate body heat. The breathable cover allows for additional cooling airflow. The innerspring base allows greater airflow than many all-foam bases. Combined, these features should help keep you cool and comfortable.

Will it off-gas when it’s delivered?

Owners of the New Purple mattress rarely report an odor. However, it is possible that some owners may notice a slight new mattress smell when first introducing the New Purple mattress into their homes. This is common among mattresses, especially mattresses that contain foam and are compressed for shipment. The smell is not harmful, and it should dissipate within a few hours to a few days if you leave the mattress in a well-ventilated room.

Will I feel my partner move during the night?

The New Purple mattress offers exceptional motion isolation to give you a good night’s sleep. The Smart Comfort Grid is designed to isolate motion and adjust quickly to changes in pressure. While the innerspring layer provides bounce, the coils are pocketed. This design limits motion transfer between coils, thereby reducing the amount of motion felt on the surface of the bed.

Who is Best Suited for a New Purple Mattress?

Unfortunately, there is no single mattress that’s perfect for all sleepers. However, the New Purple mattress offers enough benefits and firmness options to accommodate most sleepers.

The New Purple mattress’s Smart Comfort Grid should be able to relieve the sharp pressure points side sleepers often experience. The innerspring base layer should also provide the support that stomach sleepers and back sleepers usually look for.

While the New Purple mattress can accommodate multiple sleep positions, it is also important to pay attention to weight when selecting the best firmness option for you. Sleepers who weigh under 130 pounds often like a softer mattress, so they may prefer the Purple.4. Sleepers who weigh over 230 pounds often like a firmer mattress, so they may prefer the Purple.2.

The New Purple mattress offers a combination of bounce and motion isolation that may be beneficial for couples. The bounce provided by the innerspring layer and the Smart Comfort Grid may make it easier to move on the surface of the bed and engage in sexual activity. The New Purple’s motion isolation may also reduce unnecessary disturbances caused by one partner moving during the night.

People who like to make full use of the edge of the bed may also find the New Purple mattress particularly appealing. The New Purple mattress features a reinforced edge, which could effectively increase the overall usable surface area of your mattress by not sinking out from under you when you approach the perimeter. If you frequently sit or sleep near the edge, the New Purple’s edge support might be what you’re looking for.

Ready to Buy a New Purple?

If you’re interested in buying the New Purple mattress, you might want to learn more about the sleep trial, warranty, and shipping policies. We’ll summarize key information in the section below.

Sleep Trial

The New Purple mattress comes with a 100-night sleep trial. This sleep trial has a required break-in period of 21 nights to give you time to adjust to the new mattress before you can return it. If you decide you do not want to keep your New Purple mattress, you can return it after the 21-night mark and before the 100-night mark. Purple will refund the full product price for clean, undamaged mattresses that are returned.

Warranty

Purple offers a 10-year warranty that protects your new mattress against defects in materials and workmanship. To be eligible for the warranty, you must have purchased the mattress from Purple or an authorized seller. If Purple finds a mattress defective, it will either repair or replace that mattress.
