Are Purple mattresses good for side sleepers? Purple mattresses are great for side sleepers. The GelFlex Grid itself better supports side sleepers and cradles their shoulders and hips more comfortably. Purple also sells mattresses with varying levels of firmness to help you pick the right one for you.
The Purple 2 Hybrid mattress is good for side sleepers. The top polymer layer cradles your hips and shoulders. Sure, the Purple 4 Hybrid Premier has a thicker top layer, but if you’re a side sleeper on a budget, the Purple 2 is a good fit.
Sometimes it only takes a few hours, but other times it can take up to 48 hours to fully expand. The safe and easy rule we follow is to just eye-ball it. Once your mattress looks fluffy and comfortable, it’s safe to sleep on and that’s usually on the first night.
Usually, by flipping and rotating your mattress, you could extend the life of it and help it wear down evenly over time. But Purple mattresses have strategically placed layers of foam on only one side, so that side must always remain up. This is one of the reasons why you can’t flip the Purple mattress.
Purple mattresses are not organic, but they are made with high quality materials that are both safe and non toxic. Purple mattresses use CertiPUR-US certified foam and Hyper-Elastic Polymer. Each mattress has no known allergens and are tested for safety and comfort.
The Purple rates 6 out of 10 in terms of firmness, and heavier side sleepers might prefer a bed that rates 6.5, 7, or higher instead. Back Sleepers: Back sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds find the Purple mattress provides them enough lumbar support and pressure relief.
