Purple Hybrid mattresses have the same Purple feel, but with a more sturdy and supportive construction. Purple.2 Mattress
Purple Hybrid mattresses come from the same company that made Hyper-Elastic Pomer and the original Purple bed. Purple offers three varieties of hybrid beds. These are appropriately named Purple Hybrid Premier 3 to Purple Hybrid Premier 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. You will find out if Purple Hybrid mattresses are right for you.
Purple Hybrid is also known as Purple 2 and is 11 inches thick. It is firmer than any of the other models, and it is great for stomach or back sleepers. With that said, it’s the most affordable Purple Hybrid mattress.
The Purple Hybrid Premier, formerly known as Purple 3, is 12 inches thick with a thicker Hyper-Elastic Polymer comfort layer. This makes it feel a bit softer and lands around a medium to medium-firm on the scale. Purple.2 Mattress
Purple Hybrid Premier 4 Purple Hybrid Hybrid beds are the most expensive. However, it’s 13 inches thick and extra supportive. Like the Purple Hybrid Premier 3, it has a medium to medium-firm profile, and we think it would suit all body types.
Purple Hybrid Mattress Video Review
The Purple Hybrid incorporates purple detailing throughout the bed, a great touch for an avid lover of the color. The cover has premium details that give it a more luxurious look than the Purple flagship mattress. What does the Purple feel like?
It’s totally different from the innerspring mattress in Grandma’s guest room. This bed is an entirely new concept that I believe worked well for the company. Purple.2 Mattress
Purple Hybrid mattress firmness/feel
No matter which model you choose, Purple Hybrid mattresses feel soft and airy but not 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. Though, it’s also really supportive because of the thick layer of pocketed coils, which I’ll explain more below.
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. 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 feel it is a touch firmer that the Original Purple.
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. But if you’re open to a mattress feel that takes pressure off your hips, shoulders and back while simultaneously making you feel weightless, you might be pleased with its benefits. Purple.2 Mattress
Purple Hybrid Premier
The brand’s two hybrid beds at the top of the range have the same Purple feel. However they are slightly more softened by thicker layers hyper elastic polymer.
They both fall between medium to medium-firm or about a 6 on my firmness scale. Purple.2 Mattress
Purple Hybrid mattress construction
The Purple Hybrid measures approximately 11 inches high and has four layers. This is a quick breakdown of the layers of the Purple Hybrid to give you 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.
A thick system containing 7.5-inch coils in pockets, each individually wrapped with fabric to prevent motion transfer. It is the foundation of this mattress’s support.
To neutralize the feeling of the coils within the foundation of the bed, add a thin 1/2 inch of foam.
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’s soft, bouncy, and provides most Purple Hybrid’s comfort.
To make the sides more stable and sturdy, dense foam slabs are surrounded by the edges.
Purple’s StretchMax (or Extra-Stretchy) cover can be found on the top. 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.2 Mattress
Purple Hybrid Premier mattress layers
Purple Hybrid Premier is the brand’s highest-end mattress option. The only difference in construction is the top layers.
Purple 3 has 3inches of Hyper Elastic Polymer at the top. Purple 4 has 4inches.
While it doesn’t make a significant difference in feel, they are more soft than the Purple Hybrid. Purple.2 Mattress
Motion isolation is not a common feature of innerspring beds, but the Purple Hybrid offers a different approach with its pocketed coils.
It’s quite good at isolating movements, even though the bed is super-bouncy.
It makes almost no noise and you won’t be able to see your partner on the other side. Purple.2 Mattress
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 does not have any fancy cooling materials. Its natural, breathable design means that it is one of the best mattresses available for allowing airflow.
It doesn’t retain heat in the same way as memory foam or Poly foam. This makes Purple a great choice for hot sleepers who need extra cooling. Purple is not cold but it does not feel hot. Purple.2 Mattress
Purple Hybrid’s ideal sleeping positions 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. Generally, your perfect mattress comes down to your body type and your favorite position to sleep in. Purple.2 Mattress
The main sleeping positions are stomach, back, or side. Purple Hybrids will be most suitable 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. These mattresses are slightly softer and less pressure-relieving than standard hybrid models, which will benefit your shoulders and sides more. Purple.2 Mattress
Type of body
The Purple Hybrid beds are perfect for anyone, regardless of their body type.
Purple Hybrid mattresses work well for everyone because they offer more support than traditional foam beds such as 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. Over the next 10 years, you will see a significant difference in how this mattress holds up to time compared with an all-foam mattress. Purple.2 Mattress
The Purple Hybrid is more expensive than the original Purple, of course, and isn’t the best for people who are trying to spend as little as they can on a 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 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.
The Purple Hybrid mattress has metal coils encased in foam to offer support and softness.
