The Purple Hybrid mattress delivers the same signature Purple feel, but with a more durable and supportive construction. Purple 3 Mattress Queen
Purple Hybrid Mattresses are made by the same company as Hyper-Elastic Polyester and the original Purple Bed. Purple actually offers three hybrid beds: the Purple Hybrid and the Purple Hybrid Premier 3 & 4. Below, I’ll dive into the different reasons why you may want one over the other, and if they’re worth their price in general. Continue reading to learn if a Purple Hybrid is right for your needs.
Purple Hybrid is also known as Purple 2 and is 11 inches thick. It’s also firmer than the other two models and is ideal for back or stomach sleepers. It’s also one of the most affordable Purple Hybrid mattresses.
The Purple Hybrid Premier formerly known under the name Purple 3 measures 12 inches thick. It has a thicker HyperElastic Polymer comfort level. This makes the Purple Hybrid Premier feel a bit more soft and places it around a medium to moderate-firm scale. Purple 3 Mattress Queen
Purple Hybrid Premier 4 Purple Hybrid Hybrid is the most expensive Purple hybrid bed, but it’s also thicker (13 inches) and offers extra support. It’s similar to the Purple Hybrid Premier 3 and has a medium or medium-firm profile. We believe it would suit any body type.
Purple Hybrid Mattress Video Review
Purple Hybrids include purple details throughout the bed. This is a wonderful addition for anyone who loves the color. It has a premium appearance thanks to the fine details on the cover. You can also tell that it is a bit heavier than the Purple flagship mattress. What does the Purple mattress feel like?
It is completely different from Grandma’s innerspring mattress, I’ll be honest. This bed is an entirely new concept that I believe worked well for the company. Purple 3 Mattress Queen
Purple Hybrid mattress firmness and feel
Purple Hybrid mattress are soft and comfortable, no matter what model you purchase. If you press your finger on the center of the mattress, the squishy pieces will bend and change underneath.
It’s not super noticeable when you’re laying down, it just feels buoyant like you’re floating on your back or laying on a hammock. It’s very supportive due to the thick layer pocketed coils. I’ll explain this further below.
Purple Hybrid 2 feels simultaneously supportive and pressure-relieving. However, it has a slightly firmer profile. The soft squares don’t push into your hips and shoulders when you’re on your side like your typical firm bed, but my back and spine feel very reinforced above the bed’s Hyper-Elastic Polymer layer. It’s firmer than the Original Purple mattress.
If you’re curious about the Purple Hybrid but you aren’t willing to explore unconventional ways of bedding, you might want to look elsewhere. It might appeal to you if the mattress feels like it is releasing pressure from your hips, shoulders, back and making you feel lighter. Purple 3 Mattress Queen
Purple Hybrid Premier
Although they share the brand’s signature Purple feel, the two higher-level hybrid beds are slightly different because they contain thicker layers Hyper-Elastic Polymer.
They are between medium and medium-firm. I would say they’re about 6 on the firmness spectrum. Purple 3 Mattress Queen
Purple Hybrid Mattress Construction
The Purple Hybrid has four layers and is approximately 11 inches high. Below is a breakdown of each layer of the Purple Hybrid bed. This will give you an idea about what makes Purple and Purple.
A thin layer of basic foam, about one-inch thick, that supports the thick pocketed coil layers above.
The mattress is made up of thick pockets of coils measuring 7.5 inches in diameter, each wrapped in fabric to limit movement transfer. It is what makes this mattress so comfortable.
A thin half inch of foam to help neutralize any sensations caused by the pockets in the bed’s base.
The Hyper Elastic Polymer brand uses covers that are approximately 2 inches in height. These are laid out in a grid-like pattern. This is the main layer that differentiates it from the Purple Hybrid mattress. Each mattress has a different thickness. It is soft, bouncy and provides the majority of the Purple’s comfort.
Dense foam slabs surround the edges to give the sides a more solid and stable feel.
On top is the Purple’s “StretchMax” cover, and just like the name implies, it’s extra-stretchy. It’s more breathable than any standard mattress cover. You can compare the feel to a soft cotton top or an athletic antisweat shirt. Purple 3 Mattress Queen
Purple Hybrid Premier mattress layers
Two Purple Hybrid Premier mattresses are the best-selling mattress options. Only the top layers make up the main difference in construction.
The Purple 3 has a 3-inch layer of Hyper-Elastic Polymer at the top, while Purple 4 has 4 inches.
It doesn’t make a huge difference in feel, but they are softer than the Purple Hybrid. Purple 3 Mattress Queen
Motion isolation is not something that innerspring beds are known for, but the Purple Hybrid has pocketsed coils and special material that make it possible.
It’s quite good at isolating movements, even though the bed is super-bouncy.
It virtually makes no noise, and you’ll hardly be able to notice your partner moving around on the other side. Purple 3 Mattress Queen
Purple Hybrid mattresses have firm foam at the edges that will hold you up if your body tends to lean towards the sides of the bed.
This mattress has edge support capabilities that I am happy to give two thumbs up.
The other benefit of the Purple Grid besides bouncy comfort would have to be its temperature-regulating abilities. It’s not designed with any fancy cooling material, but instead, the Purple Grid’s natural breathable design makes it one of the best mattresses for allowing airflow.
It doesn’t retain heat as memory foam and poly foam might. This makes it attractive to hot sleepers such as me, who require additional cooling. The Purple is not cold to my skin, but it doesn’t make me feel hot. Purple 3 Mattress Queen
Purple Hybrid’s ideal positions for sleeping and body types
You wouldn’t expect to find the right size shirt at your favorite clothing shop, so don’t assume that every mattress will be accommodating.
There are many options. The best mattress for you will depend on your body type and the position that you prefer to sleep in. Purple 3 Mattress Queen
The primary sleeping positions are side, stomach, back or a combination of them all. Purple Hybrids are best for stomach and back sleeping.
I would recommend the Purple Premier mattresses to side sleepers who really want the Purple Hybrid. These mattresses are softer than the standard hybrid model and will provide more relief for your shoulders and sides. Purple 3 Mattress Queen
Type of body
The Purple Hybrid beds can be used regardless of body weight, so no matter what size you are, they will fit you perfectly.
Purple Hybrid mattresses can be used by all body types as they are more supportive of traditional foam beds like Casper or Nectar. They have that layer of steel pocketed coils on the bottom, and if you think about it, steel is much more durable than foam. You will notice a difference in the durability of this mattress over a period of 10 years compared to an all foam bed. Purple 3 Mattress Queen
The Purple Hybrid is more costly than the original Purple and may not be the best choice for those looking to spend as low as possible on a bed. If you’re looking for a way to improve your night’s rest, however, you might consider it a reasonable price.
Purple Hybrid mattresses are available in sizes ranging from twin XL to California King. The prices start at $1,299, and can go up to $1,899. They don’t usually run discounts for this bed, but they may have a promotion going for free sheets or pillows with your purchase.
Purple Hybrid mattresses have metal coils that are encased with foam for support and softness.
