Product description from Purple:

One perfect bed, no more morning blues. Purple gives the best of both firm and soft with our pressure-erasing Smart Comfort Grid. Wake up on the right side of the World’s First No Pressure mattress.

Perfect Spinal Alignment on Both Your Back and Side

  • Back Sleeping: When you lie on your back, you want your spine to maintain its natural curve.
  • Side Sleeping: When you lie on your side, you want your spine to be in a straight line.

The Purple Bed is soft where you want it and firm where you need it. It cradles your hips and shoulders so you don’t sleep with uncomfortable pressure-points, and gives you full support for your back so you don’t wake up sore and achy in the morning. Stop compromising between comfort and support – get the best of both worlds with the Purple Bed.
