Mattress Firmness Scale
Many factors come into play when choosing the right mattress firmness. Check out our Mattress Firmness Guide
for the full breakdown.
The feel of a mattress depends on the materials of the mattress, a person’s body type, and even the sleeping position
can all affect how firm or soft a mattress feels. It’s also important to consider any health issues, such as sciatica
, and whether you need a mattress for couples
Generally, heavier people will want a firmer mattress, while light-weight sleepers usually prefer a softer mattress. If you sleep on your back, look for a medium to medium-firm mattress for optimal support. Stomach sleepers need a firmer mattress to support the spine, while side sleepers should choose a softer mattress to reduce pressure on the hips and shoulders.
Thanks to the Purple Grid, you don’t have to choose between soft and firm. It instantly adapts to be soft where you want it and firm where you need it for total No Pressure Support for every body. So when it comes to choosing your Purple Mattress, you get to choose the feel you prefer because you get what you need from any mattress. The deeper the Purple Grid, the more it feels like you’re floating. This makes Purple the perfect choice for most sleepers — even for couples who may have different preferences of mattress firmness.
Where is the best place to buy a mattress?
You can purchase a Purple online or by visiting one of our mattress stores
. Some people enjoy visiting a showroom and talking with a salesman, while others prefer the convenience and privacy of mattress shopping online. The choice is yours!
Back in the day, the only way to properly test a mattress was to visit a store in person. Shoppers would lay on a demo mattress for a few minutes, make a decision, and hope for the best. But for many people, testing a mattress for 5-10 minutes is not enough time. That’s why Purple offers a 100-night risk-free trial for every mattress. This gives you plenty of time to fall in love with your Purple and experience restful sleep, night after night. And if you are unsatisfied for any reason, we’ll come pick up your mattress and give you a refund.
Purple also offers Affirm Financing
options for as low as 0% APR. With easy monthly payments and no hidden fees, you can be sleeping on a Purple for less than the cost of a cup of coffee a day! To qualify, simply select “Affirm Monthly Payments” at checkout.
What size of mattress do you need?
When choosing a mattress size, it's important to consider the space of the bedroom and the height of the sleeper. Some of the most common mattress sizes are Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, and King. Each of these mattress sizes can provide certain benefits. Queen mattresses are the most popular, due to their size and affordability. A King mattress may be the best mattress for couples
for its extra space and comfort, though you need to consider the size of the room and available budget. For single-sleeping teens and adults, a Twin XL or Full mattress are excellent choices. Want more information on mattress sizes? Check out our comprehensive guide to mattress dimensions
Do you need a new bed foundation?
What kind of mattress frame or bed foundation do you need? There are many different options, and they’re not created equal. A box spring is designed for a traditional innerspring mattress, and may not work well for other mattress types. Consider a bed foundation made from metal or wood instead. In fact, the Purple Metal Platform Base
offers sturdy support and is made especially for Purple mattresses. Want to learn more? Check out our guide on bed foundations

, it’s important to focus on the needs of the reviewer. They may prefer a different sleeping position, mattress firmness, or sleeping temperature.

How to get rid of an old mattress?
When it’s time to say goodbye to your old mattress, it’s important to do it safely and legally. Consider donating your old mattress to someone in need. If your mattress is in good shape, look for local thrift stores or charitable organizations. If you want to recycle your mattress, a local recycling center can help make sure it’s handled safely. You can also call your local sanitation department to see if mattress pickup and disposal is part of curbside collection in your area. If your local sanitation department is unable to pick it up, they may still accept foam mattresses at the landfill or other drop-off locations. There are plenty of options for disposing of your old mattress safely and cost-effectively.
If you upgrade to White Glove Delivery for your new Purple Mattress, you can opt to have your delivery team remove and dispose of your old mattress for you.
