Comfort From the Ground Up

Here’s what you’ll be sleeping on, night after night.

SoftFlex Cover

A custom, super-soft knit with tons of stretch so it can flex with both your movement and the Grid’s. Its breathable material is also the perfect complement to the Grid’s 1,800+ air channels.

2″ Purple Grid

Made from temperature-neutral, hyper-elastic gel, this gridded layer is engineered to flex directly under pressure points while still supporting the rest of your body.

Dual-Layer Comfort Foam

A soft, cushioning layer and a firm, supportive layer create an ideal combination. Both foams are high in density to offer a durable, long-lasting base.

Instant Response, Instant Return

Instant Response, Instant Return

The Grid dynamically flexes under pressure so areas like shoulders and hips are comfortably cradled. As you readjust your position and move, the Grid instantly reforms.

Heat Activated Compression

Heat Activated Compression

Memory foam is activated by heat, and as your body warms the foam, its structure begins to dip under the pressure. This sinking effect also makes it hard to reposition yourself.

Sleeps Cool

Sleeps Cool

Thousands of air channels are integrated in the Grid’s design to encourage a comfortable sleep temperature, and the temperature-neutral material won’t capture your body heat.

Retains Heat

Retains Heat

The closed-cell structure of polyurethane foam makes it difficult for air to circulate, and it’s also responsible for memory foam’s heat-retaining reputation.

Long-Lasting Durability

Long-Lasting Durability

Made with Hyper-Elastic Polymer, the Grid easily matches the average lifespan of ordinary mattresses and often outlasts them. Plus, our mattresses are guaranteed for 10 years under a full warranty.

Fails Over Time

Fails Over Time

Repeated use over time causes memory foam to lose some of its elasticity, or ability to bounce back. The result is an annoying dip in your mattress.

What makes Purple different than other mattress in a box brands?

Simple answer: the Purple Grid. Specially engineered to softly cradle your hips and shoulders while totally supporting your back’s natural shape, Purple’s patented technology has been used and tested rigorously within medical and consumer applications for over 25 years. In that time, the inventors of Purple have researched the different mattress materials to know what pairs best with their life-changing technology. Here’s what they found: * Memory foam doesn't consistently give you the support you need throughout the night and generally sleeps hot. * Traditional spring mattresses don’t relieve pressure and cause a great deal of motion transfer, not to mention the squeaking. * The ultra-durable Purple Grid technology cradles your hips and shoulders while giving you the support your body needs and the comfort you crave. Pair it with dynamic, specially-designed fabric-encased coils, and you get complete, immersive comfort all night, every night.

What’s the difference between the Purple Mattress, the Purple Hybrid, and the Purple Hybrid Premier?

* The Purple Mattress: The bed that broke the internet — 2” Purple Grid over traditional high-density foam. * Purple Hybrid: Enhanced dynamic support — 2” Purple Grid™ over Responsive Support Coils. * Purple Hybrid Premier: The ultimate No Pressure mattress — 3” or 4” Purple Grid over Responsive Support Coils.

Thanks to The Purple Grid, all four mattress options will provide the No Pressure Support and comfort you expect. So which mattress option is right for you? It all comes down to how you want it to feel. Simply put, the thicker the Purple Grid layer, the deeper pressure-cradling you’ll feel, giving you a more weightless feel – all while enjoying superior alignment and back support! TLDR: The more Purple Grid you have, the more it feels like you’re floating.

Do Purple beds work with any foundation?

The Purple Mattress will work great on any flat, sturdy foundation. Whether you put it on the Purple PowerBase or Platform, slats, box foundation, adjustable bed, or even the floor, your Purple Bed will sit pretty in any room. See the Purple Mattress warranty for more information.

How do I return the mattress for a full refund?

Because The Purple Grid supports the natural alignment of your body unlike any other mattress, it can take some time for your body to completely adjust to your new Purple Mattress. Similar to when you start fixing poor posture, it may feel odd or even uncomfortable at first, so we highly recommend you sleep on it for a few weeks to give your body a chance to adjust. If you’re still unsatisfied after 21 nights, you can return it for a full refund. **Helpful hint: Stretchy Purple Sheets and Mattress Protector let you feel the full comfort of The Purple Grid.

What happened to Purple’s old mattresses?

The Purple Mattress collection got a makeover! If you had your eye on a particular mattress, here’s what changed:
* The Original Purple Mattress = The Purple Mattress
(now with premium edge support and a new cover) * Purple.2 = Purple Hybrid * Purple.3 = Purple Hybrid Premier 3” * Purple.4 = Purple Hybrid Premier 4”

Does the Purple Mattress sleep cool?

If you’re looking for the coolest bed in a box there is, don’t sweat it (literally.) Purple mattresses are some of the most breathable mattresses on the market, thanks to the Purple™ Grid, which features thousands of natural air channels that promote airflow and neutralize body heat. As a bonus, Purple is also a hypoallergenic mattress that resists all sorts of allergens, like dust mites or pet dander, which can irritate the skin.

Night sweats are the worst, aren’t they? Studies have shown that sleeping temperature has a drastic impact on sleep quality. Breathability directly affects how hot you’ll feel during a night’s sleep, and it’s an important factor to consider before buying a bed in a box. Some bed in a box brands sell mattresses with cooling gel, perforated foam, or other types of cooling technology in order to improve the breathability, but it’s always a good idea to read bed in a box reviews to hear from real customers on the breathability of a mattress before you buy it.

Is the Purple Mattress made in America?

Yes! Unlike most bed in a box brands, Purple manufactures their mattresses right here in the good ol’ USA. Some people may not think about where their mattress comes from — but it matters more than you may think. The country where a mattress is manufactured can have an effect on the mattress quality and shipping costs. Some bed in a box brands tend to cut corners by outsourcing their manufacturing and import their beds from China in order to save costs.

Purple builds their own mattresses on-site in America instead of being outsourced to a nameless 3rd party overseas manufacturer. This helps us guarantee high-quality materials and craftsmanship are always used in the manufacturing process. Customers can save on shipping, and Purple benefits the local economy by creating jobs for fellow Americans.

What is the best type of mattress material?

When it comes to choosing a bed in a box, you want a high-quality mattress that provides long term comfort and support. To make an informed decision, it helps to understand the most popular types of mattress materials:

Purple Grid™: The Purple Grid™ takes mattresses to a whole new level. All Purple mattresses have a top layer Purple Grid™, which is made out of patented Hyper-Elastic Polymer material. The open air channels rise a step above all other common mattress materials and is truly revolutionary in the bedding industry. It’s instantly soft where you want it, firm where you need it, and comfortably cool all night. It contours to the body and offers both great bounce and minimal motion transfer. The Purple Grid™ is the reason why Purple mattresses offer universally firm support, are extra breathable, responsive, and a great pick for all sleepers who value getting a great night’s sleep.

Memory Foam: Memory foam mattresses are high density, heavy, and slowly contour to your body’s shape. They offer a few benefits, such as being hypoallergenic and having minimal motion transfer. However, some customers have reported that a memory foam bed sleeps hot, has low responsiveness, and can emit an unpleasant off-gassing smell. The smell of some high-density memory foam can linger — even after the mattress is aired out from its shipping package. If mattress coolness is important to you, you might want to steer clear of a memory foam bed.

Gel Memory Foam: In order to improve the heat issues of memory foam mattresses, some mattress brands started infusing the high-density foam with gel. A gel memory foam mattress is very similar to a regular memory foam mattress, except in this one area. Gel memory foam mattresses feel cooler to the touch, though they can warm up during the night as well.

Latex: Latex is an alternative to memory foam that is responsive and has more bounce. Most latex is ventilated and sleeps fairly cool. The biggest issue with latex that many customers face is that it can break down quickly. Latex is an expensive material, so the fact that its durability is not great doesn’t give it the best reputation when it comes to bang for your buck.

What is the best firmness for a mattress?

Most bed in a box brands sell mattresses of different firmness levels to appeal to a wide market of sleepers. Purple is different in that our mattresses are considered to be “Universal Firmness.” This means that, regardless of sleep position, all sleepers can rest in true comfort that’s soft under your hips and shoulders and with firm support for your back on all our mattresses. This is made possible thanks to our scientific, patented Purple Grid™. The Purple® Mattress adapts to you, rather than the other way around. No other mattress company out there provides the comfort and support of the Purple Grid™.

When determining the best bed in a box for you, one of the biggest factors to consider is mattress firmness. The firmness of your mattress not only affects how it feels when you lay on it, but it has a direct impact on your long-term sleep quality. Mattress firmness levels are scored on a scale of 1-10, with 1 being the softest and 10 being the firmest.

It’s highly unusual for a mattress to actually be a 1 or 10 firmness. Uber-soft mattresses have zero spine support, and ultra-firm mattresses can put undue stress on pressure points. The vast majority of Goldilocks-approved bed in a box mattresses are in the 4-8 firmness range.

Your preferred mattress firmness level depends on your usual sleep position. To sum it up:

Back Sleepers: Because firmer mattresses have better spine support, back sleepers who sleep on their spine usually like a mattress with a 6-7 firmness. Back sleepers prefer the purple hybrid.

Stomach Sleepers: People who sleep on their bellies need spinal alignment support and pressure relief. The weight of each individual stomach sleeper affects their preferred firmness level slightly, but on average, a 5-7 firmness is best. Stomach sleepers prefer the purple hybrid.

Side Sleepers: Those who sleep on their side require a mattress that is softer, malleable, and provides pressure relief. The mattress needs to cushion your hips and shoulders while still being supportive of your neck and spine. Typically, a 4-6 mattress firmness level is recommended for side sleepers. For more information, be sure to read our Side Sleeper’s Guide to Sleeping and learn why Purple is the best bed in a box for all sleeping positions. Side sleepers prefer the Purple Hybrid Premiere 3” or 4”.

Combination Sleepers: The majority of sleepers in the world are combination sleepers – people who change up their sleeping positions during a night’s sleep. Because of this, combination sleepers need a balanced, versatile mattress, making firmness level 6 a great choice. Combinations Sleepers prefer the Purple Hybrid Premiere 3” or 4”.

What is a Bed in a Box?

Prior to the advent of online mattress sellers, shoppers searching for a new bed had to drive store-to-store in order to try out mattresses in person. That all changed around 2012 when e-commerce stores started offering beds and mattresses. Instead of connecting with a customer through middlemen brick and mortar mattress stores, these online companies began selling and shipping beds to buyers directly. This business model helped simplify the process of buying a mattress. This simpler and cheaper method of buying a bed revolutionized the sleep world and changed the mattress shopping game forever.

Despite the name, not all bed in a box mattresses are shipped in an actual box. The term “bed in a box” refers to any mattress that is ready to ship in a small, easily-moved package. For example, Purple mattresses are shipped in a durable bag, but they still fall underneath the bed in a box category because of the state-of-the-art packaging and relative ease of shipping.

Bed in a box mattresses are less expensive and head-ache free compared to mattresses bought at a mattress store. Because cutting-edge compression and packing techniques are used when shipping the mattresses, getting a bed in a box through your door and set up in your bedroom is a piece of cake.

What is the best Bed in a Box?

When it comes to comparing bed in a box brands on the market, Purple is the clear winner. The Purple Grid™ is the latest cutting-edge scientific invention within bed-tech, putting it leaps ahead of the competition. All of our mattresses — from the original Purple® Mattress that broke the internet to the luxurious Purple® Hybrid Premier — come in the most popular mattress sizes to fit any bed frame, adjustable base, or platform bed.

Of course, take your time researching bed in a box reviews before going all-in. See how we match-up against other bed in a box brands. You’ll discover first-hand how customers and sleep experts love our mattresses, and we’re confident you will too!

What is the lifespan of a Bed in a Box?

Any good mattress should last at least 7-8 years. However, some mattress brands last longer, which is even better! Purple offers some of the longest-lasting bed in a box mattresses, with a lifespan of between 10-20 years. Before tossing out your old mattress and hopping into a Purple, it’s a good idea to read up on the proper mattress disposal methods.

When you invest in a new mattress, you should be aware of its expected mattress lifespan. You want to buy a bed that will give you restful nights year after year. When a mattress gets too old, it becomes significantly less comfortable, less supportive, and may start causing you aches and pains. The lifespan of a mattress can vary, depending on several factors, including the materials used and the manufacturing process. How you treat your mattress is also an important factor. Jumping on the bed may be fun for kids, but this does tend to shorten the life of a mattress. It’s important to do your homework before investing in a bed in a box. Getting a good night’s sleep is essential to living a happy and healthy life, and you want to wake up feeling rested every day for the next several years.

What type of return policy should a Bed in a Box have?

At Purple, we stand by our mattresses 100%. We offer a 100-night sleep trial on all Purple mattresses. If something doesn’t work out, you can return the mattress for a refund. We’ll even pick up the mattress for free and donate it to charity. Our 10-year warranty guarantees that your Purple® Bed will remain protected from manufacturer defects.

Just in case something unforeseen goes wrong, you want to make sure the bed in a box company has a good return policy. Brands that are confident in their products will offer a generous return policy and warranty that allows you to feel secure. With many mattress companies, poor customer service and poor quality beds often go hand in hand. So, before you buy a bed in a box, check the return policy and warranty. If it seems limited and overly-restrictive, chances are that the business is probably trying to sell you a sub-par product. Jump ship and buy a bed in a box from a trustworthy business with excellent customer service ratings.
