A few months ago, we received a Purple Mattress in the mail. We love it, and we love working with such a fun company. Here’s our honest review of the Purple Mattress.
What is a Purple Mattress?
Well, it’s not a dog toy.
And it’s not meant to be used in water log rolling.
Ok, now you’re getting close Jack. You are supposed to sleep on it!
Can you believe there is a King sized mattress in that package?
It’s a mattress. But not just any kind of mattress.
It’s a no-pressure mattress that is a little different from its competitors.
Purple is a little fun.
A little quirky.
A lot different.
I should start by telling you that my husband and I don’t have the youngest skeletons. We are pretty creaky and particular about our pillows and mattresses. We usually wake up and use a foam roller to get the kinks out of our backs and hips before we start our day, and then again before going to sleep. We’re kind of high maintenance.
Because trying the Purple mattress was such a big step for us, we decided to see what it was all about before agreeing to try it out. You might remember the video of Jack sitting on the raw egg on the seat cushion? That seat cushion was made out of the same material the Purple mattress is made from.
On a side note, that seat cushion is now at my mom’s house. Many of you know that she was in a bad motorcycle accident last year and broke her leg in several places. She’s not able to walk yet, and spends most of her time sitting. She was starting to develop some serious issues from not having a good seat cushion, though she had purchased several different ones at the time. After trying the Purple seat cushion, her issues are gone. No sores, no hip issues, nothing. She’s looking at purchasing an extra one now for her wheelchair!
The Purple mattress isn’t purple. I knew you were wondering :)
Two layers of polyurethane foam with a top layer made from Hyper-elastic polymer™ in a Smart-Comfort Grid. The bottom line? It’s firm, it’s totally comfortable, and it will never sag on one side from someone sleeping there every night.
The mattress is heavy–it weighs about 140 pounds. It’s a little tough to carry after you unroll it from it’s shipping packaging–I’d recommend carrying it into your bedroom before unrolling it (unlike we did).
Jack begged us to keep the mattress for himself. And as you can tell from all of the pictures, the dogs were very interested too.
Jack loved the packaging that the Purple mattress came in. While we were getting the mattress on our bed, he was finding a fun way to use the plastic that it came in.
Seriously–the fun times don’t stop with the Purple mattress!
We had the option to send the Purple mattress back if we weren’t thrilled with it, but it’s still on our bed. We used to wake up and feel a little “creaky.” We had some aches and pains for the first 30 or so minutes after getting out of bed in the morning. No more. After sleeping on the Purple mattress, we wake up and our bodies don’t need time to readjust. No back pain, no stiff hips, nothing.
In fact, a few weeks after we got our mattress, I received a text from some friends of ours. It might have been a little strange at first.
But we did let them come lay on our bed. They loved the Purple mattress and ordered one for themselves.
Unfortunately, their mattress arrived on the same day as a crazy unannounced winter rainstorm. The Purple mattress was wet and my friend had to call Customer Service late that night to ask what to do.
So if you’re wondering… the mattress dried within a couple of hours with a fan and the 10 year warranty wasn’t affected.
I’ll tell you a secret… we kept our other mattress for about 5 weeks after we received the Purple mattress. We wanted to make sure we loved our Purple Mattress before getting rid of the other one. I’m happy to tell you that it’s gone now!
We are so happy with our Purple Mattress and have been telling all of our friends about it. Now we’re telling you. No more creaks, no sore muscles, no more foam rolling after we get out of bed in the morning.5
