If you’re looking for an alternative to Tempurpedic or Purple, you may want to consider a another brand.

For its Purple Grid, a revolutionary comfort layer molded into a grid shape, Purple has acquired exceptional notoriety since the launch of its flagship mattress in 2015. purple grid can be found in the purple hybrid and purple hybrid premier variants as well as in two more variations of purple.

For more than two decades, Tempur-Pedic has been synonymous with premium beds that fit to your body’s unique shape. The TEMPUR-Adapt, TEMPUR-ProAdapt, and TEMPUR-PRObreeze are three of Tempur-current Pedic’s all-foam and hybrid mattresses. The TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt, a fourth mattress option, is made entirely of memory foam.

We’ll examine the costs, quality, and functionality of the products, as well as the company’s delivery, return, and warranty policies.

Construction and Materials Comparison

The materials used to make a mattress have an impact on how comfortable and supportive the bed is for various sleepers, depending on the type of mattress. Components that create a snug fit to the body can relieve pressure and improve the alignment of the spine. Others have a firmer, more responsive feel and are employed to keep the mattress from sagging.

Today’s mattresses are made up of four main components. To put it simply, the bed’s “comfort layers” relate to the bed’s topmost layers. Cushioning and contouring are provided by these materials, which are often soft for enhanced comfort. The comfort layer’s transitional layer is positioned below it (s). In order to avoid sinking too far into the mattress, this feature acts as a cushion. The bed’s foundation is referred to as the “support core.” Firm and dense components are used to keep the mattress from sagging along the edges. Finally, the mattress is completely covered with the cover.

Purple

Purple Mattress

Hyperelastic polymer material with an open-grid structure is used to make the Purple Mattress’s 2-inch Purple Grid comfort layer. The Purple Grid has a similar sensation to memory foam, but it also has a responsiveness to it. The medium firmness of this mattress makes it feel like you’re both “on” and “in” the mattress.

Transitional polyfoam and a 4-inch high-density polyfoam support core are also included in the mattress. We classify the Purple Mattress as an all-foam mattress because of these features (even though the Purple Grid is not foam-based).

When it comes to the bed’s cover, it’s constructed of polyester, viscose (29%) and LYCRA (4%). The cover material is extremely breathable because to its high viscose content, making it extremely comfortable to wear. You can’t take the covers off, but you can use mild detergent to clean the cloth when it gets dirty.

Purple Hybrid and Hybrid Premier

The Purple Grid is also found in the Purple Hybrid and Purple Hybrid Premier versions. With a medium-firm feel and a 2-inch grid layer, the Purple Hybrid mattress is similar to the flagship mattress. One inch of transitional polyfoam is followed by a 7.5-inch pocketed coil support core in this variant. As a result of the coils, the Purple Mattress is more responsive than an all-foam mattress of the same size.

Among the Purple Hybrid Premier’s offerings are two distinct styles. This mattress offers a medium firm Purple Grid in the 12-inch and 4-inch Purple Grid in the 13-inch Hybrid Premier. There are only a few minor distinctions between the Purple Hybrid and the Purple Hybrid.

The Purple Mattress’s polyester, viscose, and Lycra spandex cover is found in the Hybrid and Hybrid Premier mattresses.

Tempur-Pedic

Please keep in mind that Tempur-Pedic does not reveal the thickness of individual layers in their mattresses.

TEMPUR-Adapt

There is a layer of TEMPUR-ES memory foam on the TEMPUR-top Adapt’s comfort layer. TEMPUR-APR memory foam is used in the transitional layer, which provides additional support. High-density polyfoam is used to make the support core. The 11-inch profile and a medium weight characterize this model.

TEMPUR-Adapt hybrids, which use pocketed coils instead of foundation polyfoam, are also available. There is no noticeable difference between the two foams. Polyester covers are also included in both versions.

TEMPUR-ProAdapt

TEMPUR-ES and TEMPUR-APR memory foams are also included in the all-foam TEMPUR-ProAdapt. Convoluted base material promotes increased ventilation in this mattress, unlike the TEMPUR-polyfoam Adapt’s core, which has a high density polyfoam support core. Soft, medium, and hard feel options are available for this 12-inch model.

It’s also possible to get TEMPUR-ProAdapt with a medium-firmness feel. The high-density support foam is replaced by pocketed coils in this model. A zippered polyester cover may be removed from both the all-foam and hybrid variants of this mattress for washing.

TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt

You may pick between a soft or a firm feel for this mattress, which features a 13-inch profile. To begin with, the mattress is made up of three different types of memory foam: TEMPUR-ES for the comfort layer, TEMPUR-APR for the transitional layer, and a polyfoam base with a high density. The TEMPUR-removable, ProAdapt’s dual-layer cover is also included here. No hybrid version of the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt is available.

TEMPUR-PRObreeze and TEMPUR-Luxebreeze

Memory foam comfort and transitional layers, as well as convoluted polyfoam support cores, are features of the all-foam TEMPUR-PRObreeze and TEMPUR-LUXEbreeze mattresses. There are two firmness options for the TEMPUR-LUXEbreeze and two firmness options for the TEMPUR-PRObreeze: gentle and medium.

There is a pocketed coil hybrid TEMPUR-PRObreeze model available as well, but the TEMPUR-LUXEbreeze is only available in an all-foam model.

Infused with phase change material, TEMPUR-PRObreeze and TEMPUR-LUXEbreeze mattresses have specific covers. If you’re looking for an even cooler night’s sleep, go no further than the TEMPUR-LUXEbreeze cover.

Average Customer Ratings

You may use customer reviews to help you narrow down your search for a new mattress by determining which models perform better in particular categories. Ensure that any mattress reviews are written by people who have really used the product in question. If a reviewer claims to have used the mattress, they are more likely to do so if they include some sort of proof of ownership elsewhere in the review.

In addition, you may find the most honest evaluations outside of mattress brand websites. Some brands present their scores to imply that all evaluations are positive, or hide their critical feedback in hard-to-access portions of the site. Reviews found on shop websites, as well as on mattress-related forums and discussion boards, are more reliable sources of information.

In-Depth Ratings

In terms of pressure relief, edge support, and other performance areas, let’s compare the Tempur-Pedic mattress and Purple mattress models. Choosing a mattress is an important decision, and you should take into account all of the following considerations when doing so. As a general rule, if you’re a hot sleeper, you’ll want to opt for a mattress that provides appropriate temperature neutrality, while couples should go for a mattress that provides adequate motion isolation and sex.

  • Durability:Average mattress lifespan is 6 to 8 years before needing a replacement. The ability of a mattress to withstand wear and tear and last for an extended period of time is directly related to the type and quality of the materials that make up the mattress. High-density memory foam, latex, and steel coils are some of the strongest mattress materials. The sort of foundation or base you use to support the bed, as well as how often someone sleeps on it, determine mattress durability.
  • Motion Isolation: In some cases, a mattress’s ability to absorb movement and isolate it to specific parts of the mattress prevents other persons in the bed from feeling the motion. Your sleep partner will sense waves of movement if they change their position while you’re sleeping or get up and down from the bed. To avoid you and your partner from waking up in the middle of the night, you should look for beds that have above-average motion isolation.
  • Sex:Mattresses and sex are personal preferences for every pair. Many like a mattress that conforms well enough to provide good grip while still being bouncy and sensitive, allowing for easier mobility throughout the surface. Mattresses that are too soft may impede mobility, while too firm mattresses may be uncomfortable for couples engaged in sexy activities. In addition to being more discreet for sex, quieter mattresses are well suited for sleeping.
  • Temperature Neutrality: Some mattresses trap a lot of heat from your body beneath the surface, making the mattress feel a little too hot. Because of the use of particular materials that encourage cooling and surface airflow, other beds provide a more temperature-neutral experience. Components such as breathable viscose or organic cotton covers, as well as ventilated latex, are included in this category. Memory foam comfort layers in all-foam beds tend to be the warmest.
  • Pressure Relief: If your bed is overly soft, you may sink far into the surface and experience pressure in specific parts of your body, including your shoulders, lower back, and hips. If your bed is too hard, pressure may build up in these same regions. The best pressure relief mattresses will strike a balance between body conforming and support, allowing you to feel less pressure while remaining on an even plane.
  • Off-gassing: When new out of the box, the majority of mattresses emit a noticeable stench. However, some beds continue to emit unpleasant chemical odors for an extended period of time thereafter. Due to the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released by foam layers, mattresses with foam layers tend to smell the most. These particles emit a stench that may linger for days, if not weeks, after unpacking your bed. Models with multiple coil layers and minimal or no foam create the least off-gassing.
  • Ease of Movement: Ease of movement is a term that refers to how uniform the surface feels. Extremely soft beds may force you to sink deeply as you move across the surface, which can make getting in and out of bed rather difficult – much more so if you share the mattress with a spouse. The most comfortable mattresses to move on are generally responsive and will not sag excessively. Ease of movement frequently also pertains to sex.
  • Edge Support:Beds with robust perimeter support will not sink excessively as you enter and exit, and you will feel quite secure lying near the edges. Other types of beds have a tendency to sink quite a bit. When sleeping at the edge, you will not feel nearly as secure, and you may need to move closer to the mattress’s middle. Typically, the materials utilized in the support core of a bed have the most influence on how supportive or unsupportive the mattress edges feel.

In-Depth Pricing

The average queen-size mattress costs between $1,500 and $1,900. However, prices vary significantly between models. While shopping for a new mattress, you’re likely to come across some that are less than $500 and others that exceed the $3,000 mark.

Numerous things influence mattress pricing. These include the mattress’s type, the materials used, and any unique or special features associated with that model. Additionally, the seller’s markup may alter the price, as certain brands are more expensive than others. Foam and innerspring mattresses are often the least expensive options. Latex and hybrid types are priced in the middle, whereas airbeds are typically rather pricey.

Another point to remember is that the price and quality of a mattress are not synonymous. Numerous reasonably priced mattresses offer comparable durability and performance to their more expensive competitors, while other luxury models with high sticker prices may not be worth the premium.

Tempur-Pedic mattresses are among the most expensive on the market. If you live in the contiguous United States, you’ll save money since Tempur-Pedic offers free White Glove delivery, which includes in-home setup and removal of your old mattress. Nonetheless, some customers will find Tempur-Pedic mattresses to be prohibitively pricey.

The Purple Mattress is the only mattress in this comparison guide that comes in a queen size for less than $1,000. While the Purple Hybrid is slightly more expensive, it is still considered a middle-of-the-road hybrid. The Hybrid Premier variants are significantly more expensive and more comparable in price to Tempur-Pedic mattresses. Purple provides complimentary White Glove delivery inside the mainland United States on the Hybrid Premier models, but not on the Purple Mattress or Purple Hybrid.

Trials, Warranty and Delivery

Purple Policies

Shipping – Purple offers free ground shipping on the Purple Mattress and Purple Hybrid inside the mainland United States. For shipping purposes, these mattresses will be compressed, vacuum-sealed, and wrapped in plastic. If you live in Alaska, Hawaii, or Canada, you will be charged an additional delivery fee. These deliveries are managed by the United States Postal Service (USPS), FedEx, and other courier firms. Unless you specify otherwise, the mattress will be left on your doorstep. You are not required to be present when the mattress is delivered, nor are you required to sign for the package.

Purple will provide complimentary White Glove delivery if you order one of the Purple Hybrid Premier models and live in the contiguous United States. Mattresses are not compressed prior to delivery in this manner. Following the shipment of the mattress, couriers will contact you to arrange for a delivery day and time. Additionally, the couriers will place the mattress in the room of your choice. Additionally, they will take your old mattress and deliver it to a recycling or donation facility. If you live outside the contiguous United States and/or would want to plan White Glove delivery for the Purple Mattress or Purple Hybrid, an additional $149 will be charged.

Purple Mattress and Purple Hybrid orders placed in the contiguous United States with regular ground delivery should arrive within five business days after being placed. White Glove delivery is slightly more time consuming.

Returns – All Purple mattresses come with a 100-night sleep trial. The sleep trial period begins on the purchasing date. While no break-in period is required, you may return the mattress at any point during the trial, Purple suggests sleeping on the mattress for at least 30 nights.

If you are dissatisfied with the mattress prior to the end of the sleep trial, you may return it for a full refund. Purple will pay for all shipping and transportation costs associated with mattress returns. You can also exchange your Purple mattress for another brand, but this effectively ends your sleep trial and prevents you from returning the replacement bed for a full refund.

Warranty – Purple offers a ten-year warranty on all of its mattresses. These warranties are non-prorated, which means that you will not be charged anything for repairing or replacing a damaged mattress, save for shipping costs. Recognized problems include body impressions in the sleep surface that are at least one inch deep, as well as manufacturing flaws that cause mattress materials to deteriorate despite normal usage and treatment.

Tempur-Pedic Policies

Shipping – Additionally, Tempur-Pedic offers complimentary White Glove delivery within the mainland United States. This service is currently available for all current model year vehicles. If you live in Alaska, Hawaii, or a US territory, delivery is a fixed fee of $600. Tempur-Pedic does not send mattresses by ordinary ground service.

Returns – Tempur-Pedic, on the other hand, offers a 90-night sleep trial on all mattress models. This includes a required 30-night break-in period, which means you must try the mattress out for at least 30 nights before returning or exchanging it.

Returning a Tempur-Pedic mattress within the 90-day trial period will result in a full refund, minus any shipping costs you incur.

Warranty – Additionally, Tempur-Pedic offers a 10-year warranty on all current mattresses. Body imprints of.75 inches or greater are considered faults for this brand. Additionally, the Tempur-Pedic warranty covers manufacturing errors that result in product deterioration or mattress cover issues.

Firmness and Feel Differences (Including Firmness Rating)

When deciding between two or more mattresses, it’s vital to take the firmness and feel of each bed into consideration. Therefore, let us dissect these aspects for both the Purple and the Tempur-Cloud.

purple-vs-tempurpedic-1.png

How Firm Are the Purple and Tempur-Cloud Mattresses?

We gave the Purple a firmness rating of roughly 6.5/10 and the Tempur-Cloud a firmness rating of around 6/10 – given that the industry standard for medium hardness is 6.5, this indicates that the Tempur-Cloud is somewhat softer than medium-firm, while the Purple is just around medium-firm.

Take note that the firmness of a bed varies slightly depending on the sleeper. While heavier individuals detect firmness more rapidly, lighter individuals may consider beds to be softer.

Sleeping on the Tempur-Cloud and Purple Mattresses (Sleeping Positions)

Now, let’s analyze the sensations associated with sleeping in various positions on both mattresses:

Purple

We discovered that the Purple is an excellent complement for back sleeping. The gel grid of the mattress folds beneath the buttocks and hips to provide pressure relief, yet remains upright throughout the rest of the mattress, providing support for the spine.

While sleeping on their sides on the Purple, heavier individuals engaged the gel grid, which cradled their pressure areas. However, lighter individuals may not engage the grid, resulting in an overly rigid feel in this position.

Moving to our stomachs, we discovered that the Purple provides the necessary support; the gel grid keeps the hips lifted and aligned with the spine.

Tempur-Cloud

We felt amazing while back sleeping on the Tempur-Cloud. We gradually sank into the memory foam comfort layer, which provided body contouring and pressure relief while keeping our hips supported and aligned with our spine.

We saw significant pressure relief when we rolled onto our side – we felt very little pressure on our shoulder and hip, which are usual hot zones for side sleepers. Additional options, like as the Tempur-Cloud, can be found in our list of the best mattresses for side sleepers.

We discovered that the Tempur-Cloud was too soft for stomach sleeping — the hips bent into the mattress, throwing the spine out of alignment and perhaps causing back pain.

What Do the Purple and Tempur-Cloud Mattresses Feel Like?

Due to its hyper-elastic gel polymer grid, the original Purple has a unique, squishy-but-firm feel. When sufficient pressure is applied, the grid collapses, releasing the trapped air. Otherwise, it maintains an upright position to provide support. The grid is really responsive and springy, which makes moving around on this bed a breeze.

The Tempur-Cloud has the feel of extremely slow-moving memory foam. Sleepers sink into the memory foam, which contours the body and relieves pressure, and it responds slowly to pressure. Due to the fact that sleepers sink into the mattress, it’s not easy to move around on this bed. To get a sense of how this feels, check out our roundup of the finest memory foam mattresses.

Average Weight Sleepers – 130 lbs – 230 lbs

The Purple is an excellent choice for back sleepers of average weight, as its gel grid provides a balance of support and comfort. However, the grid may not activate sufficiently to give significant pressure relief for side sleepers of ordinary weight. It should be supportive enough for stomach sleepers of medium weight.

The Tempur-Cloud should also be a good fit for back sleepers of average weight, since it provides an excellent blend of body contouring and spinal support.

Side sleepers should find this bed extremely comfortable, since the memory foam provides ample pressure relief at the shoulder and hip. The Tempur-Cloud is probably not supportive enough for stomach sleepers of ordinary weight.

Heavyweight Sleepers – Over 230 lbs

The Purple may be sufficiently supportive for heavyweight sleepers weighing close to 230 pounds. (Those who are heavier should look for a coil-spring mattress.) The Purple may be an excellent choice for heavyweight side sleepers, who will benefit from the gel grid’s pressure alleviation around the shoulder and hip. While the Purple may be supportive enough for some heavyweight stomach sleepers, individuals who are significantly heavier will likely require a more supportive mattress.

Individuals weighing less than 230 pounds may find a mix of comfort and support while back sleeping on the Tempur-Cloud; however, individuals weighing significantly more than that will likely require a more supporting coil mattress. The Tempur-Cloud may not be perfect for heavyweight side sleepers due to the possibility of pressing through the softer comfort layers into the stronger support layers beneath. Heavy stomach sleepers should seek out a more supportive mattress.

Lightweight Sleepers – Under 130 lbs

The Purple may suit light back sleepers who prefer a firm bed, but the majority of people will likely find it too stiff for this posture. The same is true for light side sleepers, who will not activate the gel grid and may experience significant pressure on their side. The Purple’s firmer, more supporting feel may be ideal for light stomach sleepers who require ample support beneath the hips and spine.

The Tempur-Cloud should provide body contouring and spinal support for back sleepers who prefer a lighter mattress. Additionally, it will provide ample pressure relief for light side sleepers. This bed may be too soft to support stomach sleepers’ spinal alignment appropriately.

Consider our selection of the best mattresses for light sleepers.

Comparing Purple and Tempur-Pedic Mattress Materials

Let’s see how these beds fair once the curtain (…er, cover) is pulled back to reveal the inner workings of their various designs. I’m going to walk you through a quick overview of each bed’s unique construction below. Let us begin!

Purple

  • Cover – The cover, which is made of a polyester and spandex combination, is thick, stretchy, and breathable.
  • Comfort Layer – The mattress’s top layer is made of the brand’s Smart Comfort GridTM, a purple hyperelastic polymer that conforms to your body in real time. This means that as you move around the bed, the material will move with you, conforming to your curves regardless of position. This provides some delightful pressure relief without the severe sinkage that memory foam is likely to cause (looking at you Tempur-Cloud). Additionally, Purple claims that the grid is “temperature neutral,” dissipating body heat throughout the structure.
  • Transition Layer – The polymer comfort layer is separated from the base by a 4″ layer of high-density poly foam. This section’s primary role is to transition the sleeper between the various materials.
  • Base – We finish with another four inches of high-density poly foam, which provides rigidity and shape to the construction. The thick layers of poly foam here provide a hard bed that keeps sleepers elevated above rather than in the mattress.

Tempur-Pedic

  • Cover – The cover is constructed from a 360° stretch fabric that is both moisture-wicking and breathable.
  • Comfort Layer – The comfort layer is composed of TEMPUR® material, which has a comparable feel and performance to memory foam. This implies that it is not only soft, but also has a delayed pressure response and contours the entire body with deep, contoured cushioning.
  • Transition Layer – Following that is the TEMPUR® support layer made of the same material. This layer, slightly stiffer than the one above, serves as an introduction to the sturdier base.
  • Base – Finally, the foundation layer has a thick layer of high-density poly foam. With a quicker response to pressure, this foundation gives the mattress form and durability, counteracting the severe sinkage experienced in the first two layers.

Purple vs Tempur-Pedic: Best Qualities

When determining which of these incredible mattresses to purchase, there are a few elements to consider that will almost make the decision for you.

Purple Best Features

  • The Purple mattress is far more buoyant than the Tempur-Cloud. As a result, you’re more likely to feel as though you’re atop the former than the latter.
  • If you’re more of a combination sleeper, I’d recommend the Purple.
  • Between the two, the Purple is significantly less expensive, which may be a significant selling point for those of you searching for a good deal.

Tempur-Pedic Best Features

  • The Cloud exudes a more opulent aura than the Purple. If you enjoy sinking into your mattress, you may appreciate the memory foam softness of this mattress.
  • If you’re a side sleeper, the Tempur-Cloud pressure-relieving mattress is your best bet.
  • The Tempur-typical Cloud’s memory foam feel is difficult to surpass, so if that’s what you’re looking for, I’d recommend this bed.

Comparing Purple and Tempur-Pedic Customer Service

The greatest mattresses are also those that come from reputable mattress brands with excellent customer service, correct? We appreciate excellent customer service at Sleepopolis and put each manufacturer to the test while evaluating mattresses. To assess this quality, we employ a rating scale that covers the categories of Stellar, Excellent, Satisfactory, and Poor. It’s critical to remember that this ranking is subjective and based on personal experience.

Purple Sleepopolis Customer Service Rating

  • Great:When I arrived at the Purple website, the Live Chat button in the bottom right corner of the screen immediately caught my eye. I clicked it and was taken to a chat window where I was asked how they might assist me, as well as given a phone number to speak with a sleep expert. I selected Support as my justification and was then asked for my name and email address. Within a minute, I was connected with a representative.

Tempur-Pedic Sleepopolis Customer Service Rating 

  • Great: Tempur-Pedic also provides a support link where you can submit queries or comments. This was the first thing I saw because it was at the top. This, I believe, benefits customers who may not have the time or want to sit and chat or wait for a professional at that moment. Following that, I discovered the chat button in the lower left corner. I was had to submit my name, email address, a department (which was a little confusing), and then type my message before I could interact with anyone. Once again, I had to wait less than a minute for a professional to join the conversation. Although I preferred the usefulness of Purple’s chat option, I had a positive experience with Tempur-Pedic.

Compare Mattress Construction

The Purple Hybrid is a three-layer medium-firm mattress with a plush top layer. Its two-inch Smart Comfort Grid layer flexes in response to your movements and provides dynamic support. The Purple Grid is separated from the supportive innerspring coils by a thin foam transition layer. The sensation is one of responsive support combined with excellent pressure relief.

The Tempur-ProAdapt mattress features four layers of memory foam. It is available in four different firmness levels: soft, medium, medium hybrid, and firm. Each of these beds provides unparalleled pressure relief, which is ideal for anyone suffering from hip or shoulder pain.

Due to the fact that the ProAdapt is available in more firmness levels than the Purple Hybrid, it is more suited to a broader spectrum of sleepers. Soft, medium, and medium hybrid all have a softer feel than the Purple Hybrid, making them ideal for light sleepers and side sleepers. The ProAdapt firm is comparable to the Purple Hybrid in terms of firmness, with the Purple being more responsive and the ProAdapt being better for stomach sleepers.

Another distinction between these mattresses is their suitability for couples. For the majority of couples, the ProAdapt is superior. Its ample memory foam layers almost eliminate motion transfer, allowing you to sleep soundly in the presence of your companion. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a responsive mattress for adult activities, opt for the ProAdapt medium hybrid.
