It has a breathable top cover and individually pocketed coils support core that allows the air to flow through it easily. Moreover, the Purple Restore mattress has a layer of Purple’s unique GelFlex Grid that dissipates heat and leaves your mattress cool and refreshing.
Hypoallergenic - The Purple Restore mattress is made with clean and non-toxic materials that make it safe for people with allergies. It is also made with breathable materials that allow for a steady air flow, which leaves the mattress fresh and dry. This prevents mold, fungi, and bacteria growth, making it a mattress that prioritizes both your comfort and well-being.

The Purple Restore is also made with premium materials that give it the feel of a top-end luxurious mattress, which justifies its price.
Who we Recommend the Purple Restore Mattress for
Hot Sleepers - The Purple Restore mattress would make an excellent choice for those who tend to overheat while sleeping. It is designed to sleep cool all night due to having a layer of Purple’s unique GelFlex Grid alongside other breathable materials. This would allow you to enjoy a cool and dry sleep surface all night, regardless of your preferred sleep position.
Combination Sleepers - Combination sleepers usually need a mattress that has some bounce so they can move and change sleeping positions on it easily. The Purple Restore mattress does achieve this by combining the elastic GelFlex Grid and individually pocketed coils. Those two layers give the mattress a bouncy feel that will make you turn and change your sleeping position seamlessly without feeling stuck in the mattress.
People with Allergies - The Purple Restore mattress is a safe option for those who suffer from allergies. It has a hypoallergenic cover and breathable materials that regulate its ventilation, which leaves no space for fungi or bacteria to grow on it.
Back and Stomach Sleepers - Being on the firm side, the Purple Restore mattress is ideal for stomach and back sleepers. Those folks would feel well lifted and supported by the mattress, which would give them the best spinal alignment and prevent pressure buildup.
Unboxing the Purple Restore Mattress
Purple decides to go with the bed-in-a-bag style with the Purple Restore mattress, as we received the mattress compressed in a bag. The bag was slightly heavy, but no need to worry about that as Purple includes a white-glove service to help you to move the mattress into your bedroom and set it up on your bed.
When the mattress was unbagged, it expanded into its full 11.5” in a matter of a few hours. We also noticed that the mattress expanded all the way to its very corners. This is a plus, as good corner expansion indicates that your bed is highly supportive, especially around the edges. Good edge expansion also makes your bed looks more sleek.
Unlike most newly unboxed mattresses that release a potent off-gassing odor, the Restore mattress only had a new product smell that faded with a strong airflow. This didn’t come as a surprise to us as the Restore mattress is Clean Air Gold and CertiPUR-US certified, which shows that it doesn’t contain harsh and toxic chemicals.
Overall, we found that the unbagging experience of the Purple Restore mattress was seamless and hassle-free.
Firmness, Feel and Comfort For the Purple Restore Mattress
Purple Restore Mattress Firmness
The firmness of any mattress is a subjective matter, as it heavily depends on your body weight and preferred sleeping position. Yet, it is advisable to opt for a mattress that meets your own individual needs. A mattress that is too firm or too soft for you might negatively affect your sleep quality and overall well-being.
The Purple Restore mattress comes in two firmness options: Soft and Firm. The Soft model scored 5/10 while the Firm model scored 6.5/10. This makes the Soft model ideal for side sleepers who are looking for a soft mattress that can cushion their shoulders and hips. The Firm model, on the other hand, would suit back and stomach sleepers who want a supportive mattress that can lift their bodies without causing too much sinkage.
|Choose the Soft Model||Choose the Firm Model|
|If you are a side sleeper who wants a soft mattress that can relieve your pressure points.||If you are a back or stomach sleeper who wants a firm and supportive mattress.|
The Purple Restore Mattress Feel
The mattress has a stretchy top cover that gives it a soft and plush feel. The cover is also antimicrobial, which makes it resistant to fungi and bacteria buildup. Thanks to its breathable materials, the mattress has a cool and dry feel that would be excellent for hot sleepers.
Overall, we found that the Purple Restore mattress has a unique feel due to its high quality breathable materials.
The Purple Restore Mattress Comfort
Similar to firmness, the amount of comfort you would get from your mattress depends on your body weight and preferred sleeping position. Luckily, the Purple Restore mattress comes in two models, which could meet the needs of a wide range of sleepers.
For back sleepers, the Firm model of this mattress would be a great option. It would evenly distribute their body’s weight on the sleep surface. Yet, the Firm model would still feel too soft for heavy-weight back sleepers, so a firmer mattress would be a better fit for them.
Light-weight and average-weight side sleepers would get a lot of comfort from the Soft model of the Purple Restore bed. It would give them the right amount of sinkage to cradle their shoulders and hips and keep them in a good alignment.
As for stomach sleepers, the Firm model would allow light-weight and average-weight side sleepers with a good sleep posture. Yet, it still would feel too soft for heavy-weight sleepers.
|Sleepers Weight||Back Sleepers||Side Sleepers||Stomach Sleepers|
|Lightweight (Under 150 lb)||Excellent||Very Good||Excellent|
|Average (150 – 250 lb)||Very Good||Excellent||Very Good|
|Above Average (Over 250 lb)||Not Recommended||Not Recommended||Not Recommended|
Constructions, Materials, and Design
Materials and Design
The Purple Restore mattress is a hybrid mattress, which means that it has a combination of foam and coils layers. However, what really makes it stand out is Purple’s signature GelFlex Grid. This material gives the mattress a unique soft feel while being supportive at the same time. The mattress also has a layer of dense memory foam and a support core of individually wrapped zoned coils. This combination of layers promotes temperature regulation and pressure relief.
The material used in making this bed is free of toxins and harmful chemicals, as it is Clean Air Gold and CertiPUR-US certified. This would allow you to rest assured that your Restore mattress won’t emit any toxins into your bedroom.
Here is what is inside the Purple Restore Hybrid Mattress:
The First Layer - Cover: The Restore mattress has a soft stretched cover that has breathable and moisture-wicking. The cover is also antimicrobial, as it prevents fungi and bacteria growth.
The Second Layer - Comfort Layer: The comfort layer of the Purple Restore Hybrid mattress consists of their GelFlex Grid that allows your bed to be firm or soft where you need it to be. This comfort layer eases your pressure points while still being supportive of your body.
The Third Layer - Transition Layer: This Ultra Comfort foam layer acts as the transition between the GelFlex Grid and the support core of the mattress. This added foam layer also adds to the mattress’ pressure relief performance.
The Fourth Layer - Support Core: The support core of the Purple Restore Hybrid mattress is made with zoned pocketed coils that extend to the very edges of your mattress. The zoned pocketed coils give you optimal support where you need it and improve the edge support of your bed.
Performance of Purple Restore Mattress
A mattress with good cooling performance is essential if you are a hot sleeper. To assess the Purple Restore mattress’ cooling performance, we ran out standard tests. The first one consists of taking a 20-minute nap on each side of the mattress. When we did this test, the bed remained cool and dry, despite the sleeping position.
The second test we did is that we tried sleeping on the mattress for a full night. The results of this test were not different, as the mattress maintained a cool temperature all night.
The results of our tests did not come as a surprise to us, as the Purple GelFlex Grid is designed to dissipate heat and help the bed maintain a neutral temperature all night. Also, the individually pocketed support core promotes breathability and allows the air to flow through the mattress regularly, which helps it stay cool and fresh.
We rated the Purple Restore mattress’ cooling performance a 5/5.
Mattresses that have good responsiveness allow sleepers to move freely and smoothly on the bed surface, so looking for a mattress with good responsiveness is essential.
We tested the responsiveness of the Purple Restore by doing our standard responsiveness test. Our test consists of dropping a 20lbs ball onto the mattress and then removing it. This test helps us examine how fast the mattress recovers to its original shape after being subjected to pressure. When we did this test, we found that the mattress about took 0.10 seconds to regain its initial form. This shows that it is highly responsive, which is not a surprise as it is a hybrid mattress that has the Purple GelFlex Grid and individually pocketed coils. This makes it extra responsive and bouncy.
We rated the Purple Restore mattress’ responsiveness a 4.5/5.
If you are a light-sleeper, or simply don’t want to be disturbed by your partner’s tossing and rolling on the bed all night, then opting for a mattress that can isolate motion is very important. We evaluated the Purple Restore mattress’ motion isolation performance by running two tests.
The first test consists of placing a glass of water on one side of the bed and dropping a 20lbs ball on the other side. When we did this test, we noticed that the water inside the glass was hardly affected by the drop of the ball.
The second test involves rolling on one side of the bed, and having our partner report the motion felt on the other side. The result of this test was quite similar, as our partner felt very little movement on the other side of the bed.
This shows that the bed does a great job of isolating motion, so you and your partner won’t have to worry about moving and changing positions freely on the bed.
We rated the Purple Restore mattress’ motion isolation performance a 4.7/10.
Edge support is important if you like to sit or sleep near the edges of your bed. It also allows you to utilize the entire sleep surface of the mattress and makes the bed feel bigger. To assess the Purple Restore mattress’ edge support, we did our two standard tests.
The first test we did consisted of applying pressure to the edges of the mattress and examining how much it skins. This test indicates if the mattress has strong edges that make you feel supported while sleeping. When we did this test, we found that the edges of the Purple Restore mattress only sunk a little.
The second test we did involved sitting on the mattress’ edges and seeing how well it holds body weight. The results of the test also indicated that the edges of the mattress do a great job of holding body weight.
We rated the Purple Restore mattress’ edge support a 4.6/5.
We did our standard noise test to see if the Purple Restore mattress makes any noise or squeaks. Our test consists of dropping a heavy ball onto the surface of the mattress and using highly sensitive mics to see if it makes any noises or squeaks.
Our tests showed that the Purple Restore mattress is within the “whisper quiet” mattresses. It makes very little noise, due to it being a hybrid having coils in its construction. However, it is not to the extent of being disruptive to sleepers.
With that being said, we rated the Purple Restore mattress’ noise a 4.5/5.
We determine if a mattress is good for sex based on a number of factors such as responsiveness, cooling performance, and edge support. Given our findings, the Restore mattress should be a good option for sex. It is a hybrid mattress that has individually pocketed coils, which gives it a bounce and allows for some airflow. It also has an elastic and cooling GelFlex Grid that helps it maintain a cool and dry feel. The mattress’ edge support is also strong, as it has edge-to-edge coils that keep it supportive at the edges.
We rated the Purple Restore mattress’ sex performance a 4.7/5.
When we sleep in our preferred sleeping position, usually we feel pressure buildup in different body areas, which are known as pressure points. It is highly important to choose a mattress that relieves your pressure points, so you can enjoy a comfortable and healthy sleep.
We tested the Purple Restore mattress’ pressure relief performance by sleeping on each side and examining where pressure tends to build up. The pressure map below illustrates the results.
For back sleepers, the mattress offers excellent support and distributes the weight of the sleeper evenly on its surface. Also thanks to its zoned support core, it hugs your shoulders and hips and well supports the lumbar area. This prevents pressure buildup in your back.
Side sleepers who weigh less than 250 lbs should feel comfortable sleeping on the Purple Restore mattress, as its GelFlex Grid layer allow for the right amount of sinkage around the shoulders and hips areas. This relieves side sleepers’ pressure points and gives them a good sleep posture.
Similar to back and side sleepers, stomach sleepers will feel well lifted on the mattress, especially around their hips. This keeps them in a good alignment and prevents lower back pain.
The mattress generally relieves the pressure of light-weight and average-weight sleepers. Yet, even the Firm model feels too soft for heavy-weight sleepers and may lead to pressure buildups.
We rated the mattress’ pressure relief performance a 4.2/10.
