Purple Hybrid mattresses offer the same Purple feel but are more durable and supportive. Purple Mattress Slats
Purple Hybrid mattresses are made by the same company who created Hyper-Elastic polymer and the original Purple mattress. Purple offers three kinds of hybrid beds. The Purple Hybrid, Purple Hybrid Premier 3/3 and Purple Hybrid Premier 4 are the appropriate names. Below I will explain why you might prefer one to the other and how they compare with the rest. Find out if a Purple Hybrid Mattress is right for you.
Purple Hybrid , also known as the Purple 2, is the thinnest of the hybrid options and stands at 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 it feel slightly softer, and it lands at a medium-firm to medium-firm level on the scale. Purple Mattress Slats
Purple Hybrid Premier 4 Purple Hybrid Hybrid beds are the most expensive. However, it’s 13 inches thick and extra supportive. The Purple Hybrid Premier 4 has a medium to firm profile, which we believe would suit most body types.
Purple Hybrid Mattress Video Review
Purple Hybrids include purple details throughout the bed. This is a wonderful addition for anyone who loves the color. The details in the cover give it a premium look, and you can tell it’s a bit more heavy-duty than the flagship Purple mattress. The most important thing people want to learn about this mattress is how it feels.
It’s certainly not the same innerspring mattress that Grandma used in her guest room. It’s a new concept for a bed that I think ended up working in the company’s favor. Purple Mattress Slats
Purple Hybrid mattress firmness & Feel
No matter which model you choose, Purple Hybrid mattresses feel soft and airy but not like foam. The purple squares can be felt under your fingertips if you move your hand along the mattress’s center.
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. The thick layer pocketsed coils make it really supportive, which I’ll explain below.
Purple Hybrid 2 feels simultaneously supportive and pressure-relieving. However, it has a slightly firmer profile. While the soft squares aren’t pushed into your hips or shoulders if you lie sideways, they don’t feel like a typical firm mattress. However, my back and spine feel reinforced by the Hyper Elastic Polymer layer. I find it a little firmer than my Original Purple mattress.
You might be interested in the Purple Hybrid, but aren’t ready to try out new bedding options. You might be happy with the benefits of the Purple Hybrid if you are open-minded to a mattress feeling that reduces pressure on your hips and shoulders while making you feel lighter. Purple Mattress Slats
Purple Hybrid Premier
The brand’s two top-level hybrid beds share the same Purple feel but have a slightly softer profile due to their thicker Hyper-Elastic polymer layers.
I believe they are both medium-firms, or approximately a 6, on the firmness scale. Purple Mattress Slats
Purple Hybrid mattress construction
The Purple Hybrid is four layers thick and around 11 inches tall. Here is a basic breakdown of the layers in the Purple Hybrid so that you can get an understanding of what makes Purple, Purple.
A thin slab about an inch thick of basic foam that supports the thick pocketed coil layer.
The mattress is made up of thick pockets of coils measuring 7.5 inches in diameter, each wrapped in fabric to limit movement transfer. This is the reason this mattress is so supportive.
A thin half an inch of foam to help neutralize the feel of the pocketed coils in the bed’s foundation.
Around 2 inches of the brand’s special Hyper-Elastic Polymer, laid out in a grid formation. 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 most comfort of the Purple.
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 is more breathable that a typical mattress cover. I liken it more to an antisweat sports undergarment rather than a soft top made of cotton. Purple Mattress Slats
Purple Hybrid Premier mattress layers
The brand’s top-tier mattresses are the Purple Hybrid Premier and Purple Hybrid Premier. The top layers are what really make the difference in construction.
The Purple 3 has a 3-inch layer of Hyper-Elastic Polymer at the top, while Purple 4 has 4 inches.
While it doesn’t make a significant difference in feel, they are more soft than the Purple Hybrid. Purple Mattress Slats
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 seems to be quite capable of isolating motion, even though it is very bouncy.
It barely makes any noise, and it’s almost impossible to notice your partner moving on the opposite side. Purple Mattress Slats
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 is why I give the edge support capabilities of this mattress two thumbs up.
The other benefit of the Purple Grid besides bouncy comfort would have to be its temperature-regulating abilities. The Purple Grid is not made with any cooling material. Instead, its natural, breathable design makes it one the best mattresses for allowing airflow.
It doesn’t retain heat like memory or poly foam, which makes it more appealing for hot sleepers like myself who need additional cooling. Purple isn’t cold to the touch but I don’t feel hot sleeping on it. Purple Mattress Slats
Purple Hybrid’s ideal positions for sleeping and body types
You wouldn’t expect to fit in every shirt size at your favorite clothing store, and you shouldn’t assume every mattress is accommodating for you.
There are many options. Your preference for a particular position and your body type are key factors in choosing the best mattress. Purple Mattress Slats
You can sleep in one of three primary positions: stomach, side, back or any combination. Purple Hybrids will be most suitable for stomach and back sleepers.
I would recommend the Purple Premier mattresses to side sleepers who really want the Purple Hybrid. These mattresses are slightly softer and less pressure-relieving than standard hybrid models, which will benefit your shoulders and sides more. Purple Mattress Slats
Type of body
Regardless of your body type, whether you weigh 105 pounds or 250 pounds, I think the Purple Hybrid beds will be perfectly suitable for you.
The Purple Hybrid mattresses are great for all body types because they are more supportive than typical foam beds like Nectar or Casper. They have that layer of steel pocketed coils on the bottom, and if you think about it, steel is much more durable than foam. It will be noticeable how the mattress will perform over the years compared with an all foam mattress. Purple Mattress Slats
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. It’s possible that you will see the Purple Hybrid as a reasonable cost if you are looking to make an investment in your sleep.
Purple Hybrid mattresses come in sizes from twin-XL to California-king. Prices start from $1,299 and can go all the way to $1.899. While they do not typically offer discounts on this mattress, they may have a promotional offer that gives you free sheets or pillows.
Purple Hybrid mattresses are made with metal coils and foam that provide support and softness.
