What’s Different About Purple?

The secret to every Purple® mattress is our patented GelFlex Grid, the best innovation in sleep science in 30 years. The GelFlex Grid flexes where you need it, softly cradling your pressure points. It’s firm where you need it to fully support and align your body. Because it responds instantly to movement, you move easily and sleep undisturbed. And since it draws heat away from your body, your mattress never sleeps hot.

Purple’s GelFlex® Grid offers a clearly better sleep experience. Since it delivers truly rejuvenating sleep, you wake refreshed and ready for the day.

The latest technology

The GelFlex Grid is the best innovation in mattress technology in 30 years, surpassing foam and memory foam

Responds instantly

The GelFlex Grid’s design responds instantly to your body shape and movement, supporting you in any position

Excellent pressure point cradling

The GelFlex Grid instantly adapts to your body, perfectly cradling pressure points for remarkably undisturbed sleep

Excellent support

The GelFlex Grid fully supports your body, compressing under heavier areas and gently supporting lighter areas

Easy to move

The GelFlex Grid makes it easy to change positions without disturbing your (or your partner’s) sleep

Won’t sleep hot

The GelFlex Grid naturally draws heat away from your body, so it doesn’t sleep hot, without any added cooling

Tempur-Pedic
Great in its time

Heat-activated memory foam was a breakthrough in its time, but has been surpassed by Purple’s GelFlex Grid technology

Responds slowly

Heat-activated memory foam interacts with your body heat, so you sink in slowly as the foam heats and can take a while to adapt to your body

Excellent pressure point cradling

Heat-activated memory foam compresses under the heaviest parts of your body, cradling pressure points

Excellent support

Heat-activated memory foam supports you once you sink in

Difficult to move

Heat-activated memory foam makes it difficult to move around once your body has sunk in

Can sleep hot

Heat-activated memory foam traps heat, so you can sleep hot unless you buy a model with cooling material added

Casper
Good in its time

Memory foam was a good sleep solution in its time, but doesn’t measure up to Purple’s newer technology

Responds slowly

Foam and memory foam interact with your body weight, so you sink in slowly and can take a while to adapt to your body

Little pressure point cradling

Foam and memory foam can’t offer the remarkable level of pressure reduction that the GelFlex Grid delivers

Little support

Foam and memory foam can’t deliver the all-over support that the GelFlex Grid does

Difficult to move

Foam and memory foam make it hard to move around once your body has sunk in

Can sleep hot

Memory foam traps heat, while standard foam isn’t as bad, so you can sleep hot unless you buy a model with cooling material added

Nectar
Good in its time

Memory foam was a good sleep solution in its time, but doesn’t measure up to Purple’s newer technology

Responds slowly

Memory foam interacts with your body weight, so you sink in slowly and can take a while to adapt to your body

Tempur-Pedic’s Proprietary Material

Tempur-Pedic’s proprietary heat-activated material was the last great breakthrough in sleep innovation. Responding to the heat of your body, you sink in, and get pressure reduction that generic memory foam can’t match. People love it for a reason – but not everyone likes the feeling of sinking in, and you can feel trapped. Plus, it traps heat so you can sleep hot – unless you pay extra for cooling treatments.

Purple’s GelFlex Grid delivers the pressure reduction that Tempur-Pedic’s proprietary material does, but without the tradeoffs.

Generic Memory Foam

Many mattress companies, like Casper, Nectar and Leesa, use generic memory foam as the top layer. Memory foam adapts to your body, but once you’ve sunk in, you can feel ‘trapped’. Casper uses ‘zones’ with different grades of foam, but that only lets the foam compress differently under large zones of your body. And since all foam traps body heat, these mattresses sometimes add cooling treatments so you don’t sleep quite as hot.

Purple’s GelFlex Grid solves the problems that generic memory foam can’t.

Traditional Coil Mattresses

At one time, everybody slept on a coil mattress – it was the standard technology for many years. And with good reason: coils add bounce for ease of movement, allow air flow for cooling and generally provide the ‘give’ as your body moves. But the layer of generic foam on top doesn’t adapt to your body’s shape so it’s not pressure relieving, and it can’t adapt to prevent you from waking up from movement during the night.

Purple’s GelFlex Grid delivers the restorative sleep that traditional coil mattresses can’t.
