Purple has been a major player in the online mattress industry since launching in 2015. The company's mattresses are known for their unique comfort layer, the GelFlex Grid. The GelFlex Grid offers the same contouring as foam without absorbing or trapping much heat. This makes Purple mattresses a great choice for hot sleepers.
In this review, we will focus on both the Purple RestorePremier soft and firm mattresses. These two mattresses are the most popular in the Restore line, and they offer a great balance of comfort and support.
In this review, we will test this mattress, specifically regarding:
- Pros and cons.

Unboxing the Purple RestorePremier Hybrid
Purple knows that the first impression is often the most important, so they put a lot of thought into creating an unboxing experience that is both visually appealing and functionally convenient.
The Purple Purple RestorePremier Hybrid comes rolled and compressed in Purple’s unique sustainable plastic wrapping, which is purple, of course. The plastic wrapping has sturdy handles on the edges to make it easier to lift, as the mattress is quite heavy, weighing between 85 and 171 pounds.
Once you lift the packaged purple mattress onto the bed, you will notice a zipper on the side of the packaging. Inside, you will find a pamphlet, a sample of the GelFlex grid used in the mattress, and a purple customized cutter to cut through the plastic. This cutter was able to cut through the plastic like butter. The Purple RestorePremier Hybrid mattress expanded to its full height of 13 inches almost instantly.
The Purple RestorePremier's excellent corner expansion is evident in its sleek, seamless look. The corners of the mattress expand all the way to the very ends, providing support throughout the entire surface area of the bed, especially the edges.
The Purple RestorePremier mattress is different from most bed-in-a-box mattresses because it does not have a strong chemical odor. Instead, it has a faint, new-product smell that dissipates within a few hours. This is because the Purple mattress is made with 100% non-toxic materials and CertiPUR-US certified high-density polyurethane foam. In fact, Intertek has awarded Purple the VOC CleanAir Gold Certification, which means that all Purple products have passed all testing on minimal chemical off-gassing.
Firmness, Feel, and Comfort For Purple RestorePremier Hybrid
Purple RestorePremier Hybrid Firmness
The firmness of a mattress is a personal preference, and there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Some people prefer a soft mattress, while others prefer a firm mattress. The Purple RestorePremier Hybrid mattress addresses this by offering two firmness options for the same mattress.
The soft mattress is medium-soft, a 5/10 on our scale, and is perfect for side sleepers. It provides extreme comfort as you lie down and relieves pressure on your shoulders, hips, and lower back.
The firm mattress is medium-firm, a 6.5/10 on our scale, and is perfect for back and stomach sleepers. It provides more support for your spine and allows for better cooling.
This dual-firmness design ensures that all sleepers will find comfort in the Purple RestorePremier Hybrid mattress.
|Choose Soft If:
|Choose Firm If:
|- Side Sleeper
|- Stomach/Back Sleeper
Purple RestorePremier Hybrid Feel
As you sink into the mattress, the cover envelops you in a soft, plush embrace. The fabric feels like a caress against your skin, and the wave-like design adds a touch of sophistication.
The moisture-wicking finish helps keep you cool and dry all night. You can feel the fabric wicking away sweat, keeping you refreshed and comfortable. The antimicrobial finish also helps to prevent the growth of bacteria and mold, keeping the mattress clean and fresh.
We tried both the soft and firm mattresses, and our bodies were enveloped by the bouncy, responsive, yet contouring and cozy layer of Purple Grid. We felt the grid conform to our shapes, providing support and pressure relief in all the right places. We felt like we were floating on a cloud, yet we were also grounded and supported.
Purple RestorePremier Hybrid Comfort
We wanted to know if a luxury mattress would provide premium comfort, so we had our reviewers, who have different sleeping styles, test the Purple RestorePremier.
We tested the soft mattress first and were immediately impressed with how comfortable and supportive it was. Even though it was soft, we still felt well-supported in all positions, especially side sleeping. However, if you're a heavy sleeper, you might sink a little more than you'd like.
Next, we tested the firm mattress and were blown away by how amazing it felt. The top cover didn't make it feel as firm at first, but once we started moving around, we could really feel the support and firmness. This side is perfect for all types of sleepers, but especially back and stomach sleepers, as well as combination sleepers. And heavy-weight people will definitely benefit from the firm support.
Thanks to the two firmness options, the Purple RestorePremier mattress is sure to please everyone. Whether you're a side sleeper, a back sleeper, a stomach sleeper, or a combination sleeper, you're sure to find the perfect comfort for you. And if you're not sure which to buy, you can make use of their 100-night trial period and try the mattresses out for yourself.

Constructions, Materials, and Design
Materials and Design
The Purple RestorePremier mattress is a 13-inch-tall hybrid mattress that is made in the United States using non-toxic, hypoallergenic, and certified clean-air gold materials.
It has a gray, pillowy top with purple sides, and it features a unique layer of GelFlex grid, edge support foam, a coil system, and an ultra-comfort foam that can be firm or soft depending on the version you choose. These layers work together to provide pressure relief, temperature regulation, support, and durability.
- SoftFlex Cover - The SoftFlex fabric on the Purple RestorePremier mattress stretches with the GelFlex grid to instantly adapt to your body shape, providing pressure relief and keeping you cool and dry. The moisture-wicking material helps to keep you cool and dry, while the antimicrobial treatment helps to keep the cover fresh longer.
- GelFlex® Grid Layer - The GelFlex® Grid Plus layer is made with a special material that instantly adapts to your shape and movement, providing uninterrupted sleep. It also cradles pressure points to help relieve discomfort and draws excess heat away from your body to help you sleep at an optimal temperature.
- Edge Support Foam Layer - The edge support foam layer is a firm layer of foam that is placed around the perimeter of the mattress. It helps prevent the mattress from sagging on the edges, which can make it easier to get in and out of bed. It also provides additional support for people who sleep or sit on the edge of the bed.
- Ultra-Comfort Foam Layer - The ultra-comfort layer of the Purple RestorePremier mattress is made of a soft, responsive foam that dissipates heat and enhances pressure relief. The foam is designed to conform to your body's shape. It also helps to draw excess heat away from your body, keeping you cool and comfortable all night.
- Independently Responsive Coil System - The edge-to-edge coils in the Purple RestorePremier mattress provide support for the GelFlex Grid layer, which helps regulate your body temperature and provide personalized support. The coils move independently, which allows them to conform to your body's shape and provide targeted support where you need it most.
- Edge Support System - This layer of the mattress provides a solid foundation for the other layers, helping to prevent sagging and extending the mattress's longevity. It also helps to fortify and preserve the mattress's edge, making it more durable and preventing it from collapsing.
Performance of Purple RestorePremier Hybrid
A mattress with good cooling performance is essential for those who sleep hot or for couples, as overheating can make it difficult to get a good night's sleep.
The Purple RestorePremier Hybrid is designed to keep you cool and comfortable all night long. The individual, foam-topped coils allow air to circulate freely, while the reinforced GelFlex® Grid Plus and cooling cover help regulate your body temperature. This means you can sleep soundly without waking up hot and sweaty.
We tested the mattresses' cooling performance by lying down on them for 20 minutes and measuring the heat buildup. As expected, the mattresses remained cool throughout the entire period. The firmer version was especially cool, while the soft version also did a good job of cooling. However, if you weigh more than 250 pounds and are a hot sleeper, you might get a little warmer on the soft version, as you'll sink into it more.
We gave the Purple RestorePremier a 4.9/5 rating for its exceptional cooling performance on both mattresses.
The Purple RestorePremier is a responsive mattress that's perfect for people who love to move around at night. Unlike traditional memory foam mattresses, the Purple RestorePremier doesn't sink as much, so you can easily change positions without feeling stuck.
To test the responsiveness of the Purple RestorePremier, we conducted a simple test. We placed a 20-pound ball on the mattress and waited for it to settle. Then, we removed the ball and measured how long it took for the mattress to fully recover its shape.
The firmer mattress recovered almost instantly, taking only 0.6 seconds. This indicates that it's very responsive. The softer version recovered more slowly, taking 0.8 seconds. However, the responsiveness of both mattresses is good.
If you prioritize responsiveness, the firmer mattress is the better choice. However, if you prefer a softer mattress, the softer version is still a good option.
Overall, both mattresses performed well in terms of responsiveness. We gave them a 4.9 rating, as we were impressed with their ability to provide support and allow for easy movement.
Motion isolation is the ability of a mattress to prevent motion from one person to another. This is important for couples who share a bed, as it can help to ensure that neither person is disturbed by the other's movements.
The Purple RestorePremier uses a unique material called GelFlex Grid, which is made up of thousands of small, interconnected cells. These cells are able to flex and move independently of each other, which allows the mattress to adapt to the movements of each person. This means that if one person moves, the other person should not feel it as much.
We conducted a simple experiment to test the motion isolation of the Purple RestorePremier. We placed a glass half full of water on top of the mattress and dropped a 20-pound ball on the other side. The water barely sloshed on the firm version, indicating that the mattress has good motion isolation. The movement of the ball did not cause the water to move very much.
We were truly impressed when we performed the same test on the soft version. The GelFlex Grid combined with the softness of the mattress, which is known to have better motion isolation, meant that the water didn't move at all when we dropped the ball.
To further test the motion isolation of the RestorePremier mattress, we had our partner lie on one side while we rolled around on the other. Our partner reported that they did not feel any movement on their side, even though we were moving around a lot. These results were consistent for both mattresses.
This shows that the Purple RestorePremier mattress has excellent motion isolation. The mattress scored a strong 5/5 on our tests.
Edge support is an important feature in a mattress because it prevents you from rolling off the edge and provides support when you're sitting on it.
The Purple RestorePremier mattress has an Edge Support System that consists of a series of interconnected coils that are located around the perimeter of the mattress. These coils provide additional support and prevent the mattress from sagging when you sit or lie on the edge.
To assess the edge support of the Purple RestorePremier, we conducted a simple test. We applied firm pressure to the edges of the mattress with our hands. The firm mattress had better edge support, as it did not sag as much as the soft mattress when we applied pressure. The soft mattress did not spring back as quickly as the firm mattress, and we were able to push more into it before feeling any counterpressure.
Second, we sat on the edges of the mattress to assess the edge support. We sank in slightly on the firm mattress, but not enough to feel like we would fall off. We also felt supported when getting in and out of bed. The soft mattress also felt supportive around the edges, but if you weigh over 250 pounds, you might sink in a little more than you'd like. However, even then, you wouldn't be in danger of falling off.
Purple has focused incredibly well on providing edge support, but this could backfire for some people. If you're someone who likes to sleep on the edges of the mattress, the extreme support could force you back to the center. This could be good for some people, but it depends on your preferences.
That’s why we gave this mattress a 4.8/5 regarding edge support.
Noise isolation is the ability of a mattress to prevent noise from traveling through it. This is important for people who are sensitive to noise or who share a bed with a partner.
The Purple RestorePremier mattress has excellent noise isolation thanks to its GelFlex Grid, which helps absorb and dissipate noise.
The foam layers also help to muffle noise, providing additional insulation and preventing sound from traveling through the mattress. This makes the PurpleRestorePremier a great choice for people who are sensitive to noise or who share a bed with a partner.
In our noise isolation test, we dropped a 20-pound ball onto the mattresses and listened for any squeaking or noises through our sensitive microphones. We were met with complete silence.
We gave the Purple RestorePremier a score of 5/5 in our noise isolation test.
The ideal mattress for sex should have a light bounce, exceptional cooling properties, good edge support, and be quiet.
The Purple RestorePremier mattress checks all of these boxes. It has a light bounce, exceptional cooling, good edge support, and quiet. The choice of whether the soft or firm version is better is a matter of personal preference. You can see how both mattresses performed in our previous tests and make a decision based on your needs. However, both mattresses are very similar to each other.
We gave the Purple RestorePremier mattress a 4.9/5 rating for sex performance.
Pressure relief is the ability of a mattress to reduce the pressure on your body, particularly in areas where your body weight is concentrated. This is important because pressure points can cause discomfort and pain.
To assess the pressure relief of the Purple RestorePremier, we conducted a pressure map test for both the firm and soft mattresses. In this test, we had our partner lie on the mattress for 20 minutes while we measured the pressure at different body pressure points. The bluer the map, the better the pressure relief.
Below are the pressure map results for the firm mattress.
The pressure map results show that the firm mattress is a good choice for all sleeping positions. Side sleepers will appreciate the way the mattress conforms to their curves, relieving pressure on their shoulders and hips. Back sleepers will appreciate the support that the mattress provides, while stomach sleepers will appreciate the way the mattress does not sink too much, preventing them from feeling pain in their lower back.
Below are the pressure map results for the soft mattress.
The pressure map results show that the soft mattress is a good choice for back and side sleepers with back pain, shoulder pain, and hip pain. However, it is likely too soft for stomach sleepers, especially those who weigh more than 250 pounds. This is because their hips will sink too far into the mattress, which can cause misalignment of the spine and pain over time.
Overall, the Purple RestorePremier will definitely provide you with optimal pressure relief, no matter what your sleeping style is. However, you may need to try both the firm and soft mattresses to see which one suits you best. That is why we gave this mattress a score of 5/5 regarding pressure relief.
