How Long Does It Take to Adjust to Your New Purple® Mattress?

Purple Mattress

Congrats on your new mattress! We of course love it, and we hope you do too. It was designed to give you many years of comfort and support, to ease pressure spots (like the shoulders and hips) and to help you sleep cool all night.

But before you start sleeping on it, WAIT!

You need to understand one thing first.

My husband fell in love with it immediately and it is now his favorite place in the house. It took me a few weeks to get used to not sleeping in the dent I had gotten used to with my old bed. And took some time for my body to adjust to good alignment. Now we both wake up feeling good!

There is a real adjustment period.

Some people fall in love with it on the first night, some don’t. Your adjustment period depends on your sleep style and the type of mattress you are used to sleeping on.

Adjusted to mattress

Most cool new things you buy (like shoes, cars, laptops, phones, or even yoga pants) have an adjustment period. If you’re an athlete, you want to practice in your new shoes before you compete.

Not adjusted to mattress

We guarantee that if you wait to adjust to your new Purple, it’ll be the best mattress you ever had. And we stand by it with our 100-day refund policy. If you don’t like it, send it back. But PLEASE let you and the mattress get to know each other better.

NOTE: If you purchased through there’s only a 30-day return policy.

This is the most comfortable bed ever. The only problem is now I don’t want to sleep anywhere else.

Here’s Why You Need an Adjustment Period For Your Purple® Mattress

You’re used to foam, or something else. Yes, for years you’ve likely been sleeping on foam, spring, or air. Your body is used to it. Your body and sleeping style has adjusted to how those types of beds feel, how they support and don’t support. So, really, at first everything else might seem “weird” or “uncomfortable.” You might even toss and turn for a few days as your body adjusts to better spine alignment.


Purple’s Hyper-Elastic Polymer™ supports areas that haven’t been supported before. It’s designed to support your lower back and hips much better than other mattress types. That means you’ll feel the mattress in areas you haven’t before, like your ribs, lower back, etc. Because you’re not used to it, it might feel odd. But trust us, once it becomes normal, you’ll love it. And everything else will feel inferior.


Purple’s Hyper-Elastic Polymer™ has a grid system on top of the mattress. You’ll feel that too. You’ve never felt that on top. It feels different. But after you sleep on it a few times, you’ll forget that it’s different. Like we said, it’s all about getting used to it.

Side alignment

You’ve been sleeping in positions that have misaligned your spine. Purple helps to align your spine. It’s sort of like going to the chiropractor, without someone’s nubby hands rubbing you …

Back sleeping

While Purple will never break down, it will adjust to you, and you’ll adjust to it, like a new pair of shoes. Or a glove. Or nice yoga pants. Underneath the Hyper-Elastic Polymer™ is a high-density resilient foam that will last for years. To help that foam break in evenly, vary the spot you sleep in over the first few weeks.

Stretch divider

Oh, and make sure you have STRETCHY sheets and mattress protectors! The stretchier your sheets and mattress protector (like jersey-knit, flannel or spandex), the more you’ll be able to enjoy the full benefits of Purple’s Hyper-Elastic Polymer™. Too tight and/or non-stretchy fabrics act as a barrier between you and the Purple so you don’t get as much pressure release as you could.

My husband and I are loving our Purple mattress! We were prepared for a few rough nights after reading reviews, but night one was a dream! I woke up without back pain for the first time in years, and have been feeling great ever since!

Again, congratulations on your new Purple! Give it some time to adjust.

Remember, if you still don’t like it, we do have that 100-day guarantee (30 days if you bought on And your bed will be warrantied in full for 10 years. So in the unlikely event that it does get an indent over 1”, we’ll replace it in full.
