The Purple Original mattress is a cushioning, supportive hybrid design blending the brand’s famous Grid technology with a foam base. It’s uniquely adaptive and responsive, cradling your body and then bouncing back as you move during the night. It’s also designed to offer pressure-point relief.
Who is this best for?
What people with back pain need in a mattress:
A moderate firmness with zoned support, designed for complete spinal alignment — firmer support at the lumbar spine is important.
Adjustability so you can experiment with firmness to find what may be supportive for you.
What people with neck pain need in a mattress:
Zoned support that may offer pressure point relief at your shoulders, back, and hips. Side sleepers may need more give at the shoulders.
Supportive materials such as latex foam and innersprings found in many hybrid mattresses.
What people with sleep apnea need in a mattress:
Medium firmness for stomach sleepers and a mattress with more give for side sleepers.
Compatibility with an adjustable base, designed to allow back sleepers to elevate their heads.
What people who have allergies need in a mattress:
Hypoallergenic materials that may help deter dust mites, mold, and mildew. Be wary of flame retardants, formaldehyde, and phthalates.
Memory foam or latex foam may be a good option because the density is designed to leave less room for bacterial growth.

The Purple Original mattress is “the bed that started it all.” It’s a cushioning and supportive hybrid design that combines two inches of Purple’s famous GelFlex Grid technology with a two-layer foam base. Spend a little more to upgrade to the Purple Plus, and you’ll get an extra 2 inches of foam, plus additional dynamic support and enhanced responsiveness.
The Purple Grid is a hyper-elastic gel originally designed for use in hospitals and wheelchairs and adapted for beds. What does that mean for you? Responsiveness, pressure relief, and breathability, which adds up to comfortable, supported, cooler sleep.
The Grid flexes to support you and bounces back into place when you shift in the night. It has a distinctive soft-firmness that’s buoyant and cradles the shoulders and hips, but supports the back and legs. It’s also hypoallergenic, nontoxic, impressively durable, and made in the United States.
Both the Purple Original mattress and the Purple Plus have a 100-night trial period, with free shipping and free returns. Plus, Purple offers a 10-year warranty on its mattresses.
