Purple Hybrid mattress offers the same Purple feel as its predecessor, but is more durable and supports your body. Purple Mattress Tim And Eric
The Purple Hybrid mattress is made by the same company that created Hyper-Elastic Polymer, the original Purple bed and the Purple Hybrid Premier 3 and 4. Purple actually offers three hybrid beds: the Purple Hybrid and the Purple Hybrid Premier 3 & 4. 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 by the Purple 2, measures 11 inches in thickness. It’s also firmer than the other two models and is ideal for back or stomach sleepers. With that said, it’s the most affordable Purple Hybrid mattress.
The Purple Hybrid Premier is 12 inches thick and has a thicker Hyper Elastic Polymer comfort layer. This makes it feel slightly softer, and it lands at a medium-firm to medium-firm level on the scale. Purple Mattress Tim And Eric
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 have purple detailing all over the bed. It’s a great choice for someone who is passionate about 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. What does the Purple mattress feel like?
It’s quite different than the innerspring mattress in Grandma’s guest room, and I will tell you that. It’s an innovative concept for a mattress that I think worked in the company’s favor. Purple Mattress Tim And Eric
Purple Hybrid mattress firmness and feel
Purple Hybrid mattresses, regardless of which model you buy, are soft and airy. They don’t feel like foam. If you press your finger on the center of the mattress, the squishy pieces will bend and change underneath.
It is not noticeable when you lay down. You just feel like you’re floating over your back or on a hammock. However, the thick layer made of pocketed coils makes it extremely supportive.
The Purple Hybrid 2 simultaneously feels pressure-relieving and supportive, while maintaining a slightly firmer profile; I think it’s around a medium-firm, or 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale. The soft squares of the Purple Hybrid 2 don’t push against your hips and shoulders like a regular firm bed. However, I feel my back and spine are reinforced by Hyper-ElasticPolymer. It’s firmer than the Original Purple mattress.
The Purple Hybrid is a great option if you don’t want to experiment with other bedding styles. 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 Mattress Tim And Eric
Purple Hybrid Premier
The brand’s two upper-level hybrid beds have the same signature Purple feel, but they have a slightly softer profile because of their thicker layers of Hyper-Elastic Polymer.
I believe they are both medium-firms, or approximately a 6, on the firmness scale. Purple Mattress Tim And Eric
Construction of Purple Hybrid mattresses
The Purple Hybrid has four layers and is approximately 11 inches high. Here’s a simple breakdown of the bed’s layers so you get an idea of what makes Purple, Purple:
A thin layer of basic foam, about one-inch thick, that supports the thick pocketed coil layers above.
To limit motion transfer, the mattress features a thick system of 7.5-inch pocketsed coils that are individually wrapped with fabric. It is what makes this mattress so comfortable.
A thin layer of foam about a quarter inch thick to neutralize the effect of the mattress’s foundation.
The brand’s Hyper-Elastic Polymer is approximately 2 inches thick, laid out in a grid pattern. This is the layer that makes it different from the Purple Hybrids. Each mattress has an individual thickness. It provides most of Purple’s comfort.
To give the sides more support and stability, dense foam slabs are placed around the edges.
Purple’s StretchMax “StretchMax” covers are layered on top. They are, just like their name, extra-stretchy. I think it feels more breathable than your typical mattress cover and compare the feel more to an athletic antisweat undergarment than a soft cotton top. Purple Mattress Tim And Eric
Purple Hybrid Premier mattress layers
The brand’s top-tier mattresses are the Purple Hybrid Premier and Purple Hybrid Premier. The top layers of construction are the only significant differences.
Purple 3 has 3″ of Hyper-Elastic polymer at the top and Purple 4 has 4″.
The Purple Hybrid is softer than these, although they don’t feel any different. Purple Mattress Tim And Eric
Motion isolation isn’t something innerspring beds are good at. But with the Purple Hybrid’s pocketsed coils as well as the special material inside, it’s an entirely different story.
I believe it’s quite effective at isolating motion even though it’s a super-bouncy mattress.
It makes almost no noise and you won’t be able to see your partner on the other side. Purple Mattress Tim And Eric
Purple Hybrid mattresses feature firm foam around the edges. This is to prevent you from slipping on the edges of the mattress.
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 has a natural breathable structure that allows for airflow.
It doesn’t retain heat the way memory foam or polyfoam might. This makes it appealing to hot sleeping people like me who want additional cooling. Purple isn’t cold to the touch but I don’t feel hot sleeping on it. Purple Mattress Tim And Eric
Purple Hybrid’s perfect sleeping positions and body types
You wouldn’t be able to wear every shirt in your favorite clothing store. The same goes for mattresses.
There are many options. Your preferred position and body type will determine the perfect mattress. Purple Mattress Tim And Eric
There are three main sleeping positions: side, stomach or back. Purple Hybrid is recommended for stomach and back sleepers.
If you’re a side sleeper and really want the Purple Hybrid, I’d opt for one of the Purple Premier mattresses. They are slightly more comfortable and relieve pressure than the standard hybrid mattress, which will be a plus for your shoulders. Purple Mattress Tim And Eric
Type of body
No matter your body type, no matter if you are 105 lbs or 250 lbs, the Purple Hybrid Beds will suit you perfectly.
The Purple Hybrid mattresses are great for all body types because they are more supportive than typical foam beds like Nectar or Casper. You will notice the layer of steel pocketed coils at the bottom. It is far more durable than foam. It will be noticeable how the mattress will perform over the years compared with an all foam mattress. Purple Mattress Tim And Eric
The Purple Hybrid bed is more expensive than the original Purple. This is not a good option for those who want to spend as little money as possible on a new mattress. If you’re looking to invest in your night’s sleep, though, it’s very possible you see it as a reasonable price.
The standard Purple Hybrid mattress is available in sizes from twin XL to California king. Prices start at $1299 and go up to $1899. They don’t usually run discounts for this bed, but they may have a promotion going for free sheets or pillows with your purchase.
The Purple Hybrid mattress has metal coils encased in foam to offer support and softness.
Purple offers shipping, trial, and warranty
Each online mattress company offers a few extra benefits to make the purchase more worthwhile, including shipping and a complimentary trial. Purple Mattress Tim And Eric
The bed you choose will determine the type of shipping. Standard shipping will be free if you order a Purple Hybrid. Purple Hybrid Premier beds will come with free white-glove delivery. They’ll also deliver your mattress to you.
You’ll have 100 nights to check out your bed. If by night 99 you find you hate it, you can get a full refund. Purple guarantees its mattresses for a minimum of 10 years in case of manufacturer defect.
