Purple is more affordable and made from the Purple Grid and a foam base layer. Purple Hybrid uses pocket coils for its support layer and is more expensive.
More Affordable – The Purple mattress is more affordable for value shoppers. Purple costs $1,099 for queen-size and Purple Hybrid costs $1,599. People on a low budget who do not need extra support should consider Purple.
Unique Feel – Both Purple and Purple Hybrid have a unique feel. Purple is made from the Purple Grid and a high-density foam layer. Purple Hybrid is made from the Purple Grid, pocket coils, and foam. Each mattress has a 2-inch Purple Grid comfort layer.
Better For Lightweight Sleepers – Purple is more suitable for lightweight sleepers. People of lower body weight do not always need a hybrid. But most lightweight sleepers get better comfort on more affordable memory foam beds like Nectar.
Less Support For Stomach Sleepers – Purple is not as good for average or heavy weight stomach sleepers. The mattress can cause the hips to sink too far down, causing back pain. But lightweight stomach sleepers are usually okay on Purple.
Same Trial & Warranty – Both Purple and Purple Hybrid come with a 100-night risk-free trial and a 10-year warranty. Customers can test the mattresses at home, free from risk. But there is a 21-night minimum trial period.
Less Cooling Features – Purple has better cooling than all-foam mattresses due to the Purple Grid. But Purple Hybrid has better airflow and temperature regulation. Customers wanting great cooling should choose Purple Hybrid.
No White Glove Delivery – Purple ships compressed in a box directly from the factory. Purple Hybrid has white glove delivery available (and old mattress removal). But there is a $149 upcharge for Purple Hybrid delivery.
