Purple Hybrid mattresses offer the same Purple feel but are more durable and supportive. Setting Up Purple Mattress
Purple Hybrid mattresses are made by the same company who created Hyper-Elastic polymer and the original Purple mattress. Purple actually offers three hybrid beds: the Purple Hybrid and the Purple Hybrid Premier 3 & 4. Below, I will explore the various reasons you may choose one over the others and whether the cost is worth it. You will find out if Purple Hybrid mattresses are right for you.
Purple Hybrid, also called the Purple 2, is the thinnest hybrid option and measures in at 11 inches. It is also firmer and more suitable for stomach, back, or stomach sleepers than the two other models. It is also the most affordable Purple Hybrid model.
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 a bit softer and lands around a medium to medium-firm on the scale. Setting Up Purple Mattress
Purple Hybrid Premier 4 Purple Hybrid bed is the most costly, but it is thicker than all Purple hybrid beds and provides extra support. It has a medium-firm profile and would be suitable for all body types, just like the Purple Hybrid Premier 3.
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. People want to know what the Purple feels like.
It’s certainly not the same innerspring mattress that Grandma used in her guest room. This bed is an entirely new concept that I believe worked well for the company. Setting Up Purple Mattress
Purple Hybrid mattress firmness/feel
Purple Hybrid beds are soft, airy and don’t feel like foam no matter what model they come in. You can feel the soft, squishy corners of the mattress bend and transform underneath if you place your hand on the middle.
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 simultaneously provides pressure relief and support, while also maintaining a firmer profile. I believe it to be around a medium firm, or 7 on the firmness scale. 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. It’s firmer than the Original Purple mattress.
If you aren’t open to exploring new ways of bedding but are curious about the Purple Hybrid then you may want to consider other options. If you are open to the idea of a mattress that relieves pressure from your hips, shoulders, and back, while also making you feel light, this might be a good choice for you. Setting Up Purple Mattress
Purple Hybrid Premier
The brand’s two highest-level hybrid beds feature the same Purple feel. However, they have a slightly softer profile due to thicker layers made of Hyper-Elastic Pomer.
They are between medium and medium-firm. I would say they’re about 6 on the firmness spectrum. Setting Up Purple Mattress
Purple Hybrid mattress construction
The Purple Hybrid has 4 layers and measures around 11 inches high. Let’s take a look at the layers of this bed to get an idea of how Purple and Purple are made.
A thin slab made of basic foam approximately one inch thick that supports the thick layer of pocketed coils above.
To limit motion transfer, the mattress features a thick system of 7.5-inch pocketsed coils that are individually wrapped with fabric. It’s what makes this mattress so supportive.
To neutralize the feeling of the coils within the foundation of the bed, add a thin 1/2 inch of foam.
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 most comfort of the Purple.
To make the sides more stable and sturdy, dense foam slabs are surrounded by the edges.
Purple’s StretchMax “StretchMax” covers are layered on top. They are, just like their name, 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. Setting Up Purple Mattress
Purple Hybrid Premier mattress layers
Purple Hybrid Premier is the brand’s highest-end mattress option. The top layers of construction are the only significant differences.
Purple 3 has 3inches of Hyper Elastic Polymer at the top. Purple 4 has 4inches.
It doesn’t make a huge difference in feel, but they are softer than the Purple Hybrid. Setting Up Purple Mattress
Motion isolation isn’t usually an innerspring bed’s forte, but with the pocketed coils and special material you find in the Purple Hybrid, it’s a different story.
I believe it’s quite effective at isolating motion even though it’s a super-bouncy mattress.
It barely makes any noise, and it’s almost impossible to notice your partner moving on the opposite side. Setting Up Purple Mattress
Purple Hybrid mattresses include firm foam on the edges. If you are prone to slipping during the night, the Purple Hybrid will keep you more secure.
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. 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 the way memory foam or polyfoam might. This makes it appealing to hot sleeping people like me who want additional cooling. Although it’s not cold, I don’t feel too hot when I sleep on the Purple. Setting Up Purple Mattress
Purple Hybrids’ ideal sleeping positions & 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. Your preference for a particular position and your body type are key factors in choosing the best mattress. Setting Up Purple Mattress
The primary sleeping positions are side, stomach, back or a combination of them all. Purple Hybrid is recommended for stomach and back sleepers.
I would recommend the Purple Premier mattresses to side sleepers who really want the Purple Hybrid. They are slightly more comfortable and relieve pressure than the standard hybrid mattress, which will be a plus for your shoulders. Setting Up Purple Mattress
Type of body
No matter what your body size, no matter how heavy or light, the Purple Hybrid bed will work 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 are made with steel pocketed coils that sit on top of the mattress. This makes them more durable than traditional foam beds. It will be noticeable how the mattress will perform over the years compared with an all foam mattress. Setting Up Purple Mattress
Purple Hybrids are more expensive than original Purples. They also tend to be less affordable for those who need to spend as little as possible on a brand new bed. If you’re looking to invest in your night’s sleep, though, it’s very possible you see it as a reasonable price.
Purple Hybrid mattresses are available from twin XL up to California king. Prices start at $1299 and go up to $1899. The bed is not usually discounted, but there may be a promotion for free sheets or pillows.
Purple Hybrid mattresses have metal coils that are encased with foam for support and softness.
