Purple Mattress Review

We’ve all seen the quirky advertisements from Purple Mattress. But is all of the “hype” surrounding this mattress authentic, or is it just really good marketing?

Well, we’ll give you our synopsis of the situation.

First, let’s examine the support layer of the mattress. The purple mattress is what’s known as in the bedding industry as a ‘bed in a box’. This means that the mattress is vacuum sealed, rolled up and shoved into a box. Manufacturers choose this method of packaging in order to reduce shipping costs. However, in order to accomplish this, manufacturers must sacrifice on the support of the mattress. The Sleep Foundation states that sleepers over 230-pound feel as though the Purple mattress does not provide them with adequate support.

Second, let’s take a look at the infamous grid layer of the mattress. The grid is indeed an innovative concept, and it does indeed provide good pressure relief. However, due to the fact that it’s constructed out of an elastic polymer. Many users report the mattress as being ‘bouncy’.

Lastly, let’s take a look at the issue off off-gassing. Off-gassing occurs when volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in a manufactured product becoming gas and float out of the product and into the air. These gasses can be hazardous to your health and can cause an unpleasant odor for days. The Sleep Foundation notes that the Purple mattress is known to off-gas.

Mattress Gallery Direct in Georgetown TX has a great alternative to the Purple mattress: the TalTec Hybrid by Sleeptronic. This mattress features Talalay latex that is very similar to the feel of the Purple’s elastic polymer. However, this mattress does not off-gas, nor does it bounce. Secondly, this mattress uses a commercial grade wrapped coil system with enhanced edge support that offers great support for even the heaviest of sleepers. And, not to mention, you get all of these benefits at the fraction of the price of a Purple.
