Is a Purple Hybrid Mattress a Good Choice?


Purple was founded 2015 and has been a household name ever since. Its innovative products and cheeky advertisements have helped make Purple a popular brand in the bedding market. It offers three hybrid mattresses, the Purple Hybrid Premier 3 (Purple Hybrid Premier 3), and the Purple Hybrid Premier 4 (Purple Hybrid Premier 4). The only difference is the amount of Purple’s special grid layer in each bed. The original Hybrid uses 2 inches, the Premier 3 uses 3 inches, and the Premier 4 uses (you guessed it!) 4 inches

As a result, these beds offer different amounts of pressure relief, but otherwise feel pretty similar. Let’s take a closer look at each model to see if it might be the right one for you.

Who I recommend a Purple Hybrid for


The Purple Hybrid original is ideal for back sleepers who prefer a firmer feel. Purple Premier 3 might be more suitable for those who require a bit more pressure relief.

Side sleepers could really like the Purple Premier 4, which offers a ton of cushioning around sensitive pressure points.

Stomach sleepers will probably enjoy the supportive feeling of the original Purple Hybrid.

Hot sleepers should appreciate how cooling each of these mattresses are.

These beds are great for couples who want to sleep together. Purple Memory Foam Mattress

 

Who I don’t recommend a Purple Hybrid for


Purple mattresses might not be for couples.

They are so lively, it is likely that you will feel your partner turning and tossing at night.

How Firm are Purple Hybrid mattresses?


Purple Memory Foam MattressNext up, let’s get into what these bed-in-a-box hybrids actually feel like. Below I’ll share what it was like to lie down on any of the Purple Hybrid mattresses. Keep in mind that feel is subjective, and can change depending on your body type and preferred sleep position. For reference, I’m 5’9″, about 125 lbs, and prefer to sleep on my side.

As you can see in the graphic below, I actually thought all three mattresses had pretty distinct feels, so I’ll section them off below so you can get my full thoughts on each one.

The Purple Hybrids on the mattress firmness scale.

Purple Hybrid: This mattress was quite firm so I gave it a 7 on the mattress firmness scale. This mattress will be more supportive than the industry standard of 6.5, which is for medium firmness. The polymer layer, which is thin enough support a healthy spine, would make this feel most appealing to stomach and back-sleepers.

Purple Hybrids are great for back sleepers.

Purple Hybrid Premier 3. I gave this bed a rating of 6.5/10 on the firmness scale. I felt that it was medium-firm. Combination sleepers, who frequently shift between positions throughout the night, and those with lower back pain or seeking a mattress to support sciatica, will love this bed. It was able to provide pressure relief as well as support so that you can feel at ease in any of your sleeping positions.

Purple Hybrid Premier 3 could feel great for couples who are looking to sleep together.

Purple Hybrid Premier4: This bed scored a 6/10 on the mattress firmness scale. This soft mattress really supported my pressure points and allowed for a lot of sinkage. But I didn’t feel “stuckin” the mattress. This mattress is recommended for side sleepers as well as side and combination sleepers. I think these folks will really appreciate the pressure-relieving feel of this mattress.

Side sleepers should like the Purple Hybrid Premier 4.

Before I wrap up this section, I wanted to mention that all three Purple Hybrids had a responsive, bouncy feel. These beds felt more like “on top” than “in”, and it was easy to switch positions during the night. These are, in fact, some of the most comfortable mattresses available for combination sleepers.

Are the Purple Hybrids Good Mattresses for Light Sleepers (Under 130 lb)?


Light Back Sleepers- The Hybrid Premier 3 will work well for light back sleepers. This hybrid should provide pressure relief in the lumbar regions and be supportive for people who are lighter. Either of the other hybrids could also work for these sleepers.

The Premier 4 is a great option for light side sleepers. It provides great pressure relief which is essential for side sleepers.

Light Stomach sleepers – I would recommend they stick to the original Purple Hybrid. They should have their hips aligned with each other. Purple Memory Foam Mattress

 

Are Purple Hybrids Good for Average Weight Sleepers (130 -250 lb).


Average Weight Back sleepers – The Hybrid Premier 3 is the perfect choice because it combines pressure relief with support. It’s an especially nice choice if you move between positions at night.

Average Weight Side Sleepers – The Premier 4 is a great choice for these people. Its thick top layer of hyper-elastic polymer provides plenty of room to sink in for pressure relief at the shoulders and hips.

Average Weight Stomach Sleepers-The original Purple Hybrid should provide enough support to keep their spines straight. Purple Memory Foam Mattress

 

Are Purple Hybrids the Best Mattress for Heavy Sleepers (over 250lb).


Heavy Back Sleepers: I recommend that these sleepers stick with the Premier 3. It is thick enough for durability, but not too soft.

Heavy Side Sleepers: The Premier 4 is a good choice for heavy side-sleepers. These people will find the Premier 4 comfortable due to its thick grid layer that allows for lots of sinkage.

Heavy Stomach sleepers – These beds are not recommended for heavy stomach sleepers. They require a firmer bed to provide the best support. It might be better to choose one of our top-rated mattresses for heavy persons. Purple Memory Foam Mattress

 

Purple Hybrids Pain Relief


Pressure relief is closely related. This is how well a particular bed can reduce tension at the hips, shoulders, lower back, and hips. To test for this, I like to use a pressure map.

Although it sounds complicated, the process is really simple. You just need to roll the device and then get onboard. The gadget records the force of my body on the map and gives me a colored “map”. Blue zones indicate areas of low pressure, and red areas of high.

The Purple Hybrids provide pressure relief.

Back Pain Based off these pressure map results, we believe that the original Purple Hybrid will be the best option for back pain sufferers. The map is bright blue throughout, but does not gape around the lower spine like the Premier 3 & 4 maps. This shows me that the original Hybrid is keeping me evenly supported in my weight which is crucial for avoiding back discomfort.

Shoulder Pain According to these results, these beds are excellent choices for people suffering from shoulder pain. They should do a nice job cushioning the shoulder area to relieve pressure.

Hip Pain The Premier 4 is the clear winner for folks with hip pain. The pressure map of the Premier 4 is almost entirely blue, meaning that sensitive hip joints can be cradled throughout. Purple Memory Foam Mattress

Purple Hybrid Mattress Performance for Couples


Couples will often choose beds that have good edge support, isolate motion transfer and are responsive enough to sex. You can read on to see how Purple Hybrids stack in these areas.

 

Motion Transfer


Motion transfer refers the amount that is detectable in the bed from one side to the other. This is important for all sleepers but especially for couples who share a bedroom with a child, furry friend, or other people.

To illustrate motion transfer I dropped a 10lb steel ball from heights 4-8, 8 and 12 inches. The disturbance it created was measured.

The Purple Hybrids’ motion transfer results.

These mattresses are so bouncy that I am not surprised they offer little motion isolation. This shows me that you are likely to feel movement on all three of these mattresses. This could make them less suitable for couples, especially if one is easily disturbed at night. Purple Memory Foam Mattress

 

Sex


The best mattress to use for sex has enough bounce and motion control to be easy to move on.

Personally, I think the Purple Hybrids are a bit too bouncy to share if you’re a light sleeper.

If you don’t mind being disturbed at night, these guys could be great options for sex because of their mobility and lift.

 

Cooling


All Purple Hybrids are extremely cool.

Hot sleepers should be happy on any of these beds. They’re also one of the most cool mattresses that you’ll find.

This is great news, especially for couples that tend to overheat faster than solo sleepers. Purple Memory Foam Mattress

 

Edge Support


Edge support can be described as the degree to which you are able to rest on one side of your mattress and still feel supported. Great edge support can make your mattress feel a bit bigger, since you can spread out across its entire surface.

All three Purple mattresses were very supportive of the edges. I could feel the Purple grid layer begin to compress under my weight but the foam and coils below were firm and supportive.

Personally, I thought that the Purple Premier 3 had some of the best edge support. Purple Memory Foam Mattress

 

What are Purple Hybrids Made From?


Let’s next look at what these beds are made out of. Most of you will want to know more about the Purple Grid layer. This grid is the stretchy, purple top layer that gives the Purple mattresses their unique feel.

Below is a detailed description of the grid and all other layers of the mattress. As a reminder, all of the Purple Hybrids are constructed the same way. The only difference between the Purple Grids used in each bed is the number of inches.

Cover All of these mattresses are covered with a breathable, stretchy polyester blend mattress protector.

Comfort Layer Located directly below the cover, you will find the hyper-elastic smart comfort grid made of polymer smart. This grid is extremely cooling, buoyant, and supportive. It is difficult to describe how this polymer material feels. However, I would compare it to a waterbed because it wraps around your body as you move. The original purple Hybrid uses 2 inches of the Grid, while the Hybrid Premier 3 uses 3 inches and the Hybrid Premier 4 uses 4 inches. The grid is more dense, so the mattress feels more pressure-relieving.

The Purple Grid.

Transition Layer Next you’ll find a layer poly foam. This transition foam is used to help the sleeper get through the soft top grid, and on to the stronger pocketed coils system below.

Support Layer A section of pocketed coils makes up the bulk of the Hybrid Premier and Hybrid Premier mattresses. These springs, which are very buoyant, help to lift the sleeper higher and further out of the structure. As the bed’s polymer grid and pocketsed coils create buoyancy, you will likely feel more “ontop” of them.

Purple Hybrids Unboxing And Off-Gassing


Purple Hybrids can be described as all-bed-in a-box mattresses but come in bags. Purple delivers complimentary white gloves to Hybrid Premier beds because they are very heavy. While the original Purple Hybrid is not as difficult to lift, it’s still worth having someone nearby to help you bag it. The best thing about these mattresses is their lack of strong off-gassing smells compared to other bed in a box models. Any scent should disappear in a matter of hours.

My Final Thoughts about Purple Hybrid Mattresses Well folks, we’ve arrived at the end of the review. After going over every possible detail I could think of, it’s now time to decide if one of these mattresses is right for you. And though I can’t make that decision for you, I can leave you with a few final thoughts to help you get there on your own.

 

Purple Hybrid mattresses are one of my favourite things.


I am a huge fan of the Purple Hybrids’ cooling properties. They don’t trap too much heat, so most people who are hot should feel comfortable on them. I love the responsiveness of Purple Hybrids. Combination sleepers won’t have any trouble changing positions on these beds.

I love the feeling of the Purple Grid. It helps you achieve a healthy spine alignment while still feeling incredible in pressure relieving. Particularly if you choose one the thicker versions. If you’re willing to test out a more unique feel I think the Purple might be a great fit for you.

My Purple Hybrid mattress complaints


Purple mattresses may not offer the best motion isolation. This is not a problem, but if you are constantly disturbed at night, you may want to consider a traditional memory foam mattress. It will absorb more motion.

A few customers complained that the Purple mattress was sagging and creating indentations. The Purple Hybrids are more durable due to the innerspring coil layers. However, heavier people might prefer a different mattress. Place any Purple bed you purchase on a solid platform. Purple Memory Foam Mattress

What is the difference between the original Purple Hybrid mattress and the Purple Hybrid Premier mattresses?


The only difference between these mattresses is the amount of Purple Grid each is made with.

The Purple Hybrid Premier 3 has an original 2-inch grid layer. The Purple Hybrid Premier 3 has 3 inches grid layers. The Purple Hybrid Premier 4 has 4 inches grid layers.

 

Where are Purple Mattresses Made?


Purple mattresses are made in the USA.

 

Can I use a box spring with the Purple Hybrid mattresses?


Purple doesn’t recommend that you use a box spring in conjunction with any of your beds.

These experts recommend using a solid platform, slatted or adjustable bed frame.

 

Purple Hybrid Vs.


Let’s now take a deep dive into the Purple Hybrid Premier, and see how they compare with other mattresses you can find on the Internet.

Purple Hybrids vs Leesa Hybrid

Like the Purple Hybrids, the Leesa Hybrid combines foam layers with pocketed coils for a one-two punch of pressure relief and support.

Although it does have a traditional feel, it’s still more comfortable than any Purple beds. It could also work well for people who don’t want Purple’s unique feel.

The Leesa Hybrid is a good choice for couples and back sleepers.

Purple Hybrids vs Casper Hybrid

Casper’s zoned support is unlike the Purples. It is firmer at the hips and softer at the shoulders, providing optimal lumbar support.

Purples can be more bouncy than the Casper Hybrids, which may appeal to combination sleepers.

The Purple 3 & Purple 4 relieve a little less pressure than the Casper Hybrid. Purple Memory Foam Mattress

Purple Hybrids and Original Purple

The Original Purple mattress’s support layer consists of high-density, poly foam rather than pocketed coils.

The Original Purple is firm, supportive, and bouncy. Combination sleepers might particularly like this feel.

The Original Purple Mattress is very cool, just like the Purple Hybrids.

The Original Purple is much cheaper than either Purple Hybrid Premier and Purple Hybrid Premier.
