Different kind of feel for a different kind of sleep

After watching 2 different review sources on youtube (Goodbed and "The slumber yard") I decided I needed to try out this bed myself. Previously I had been sleeping on an innerspring mattress and before that, I had memory foam. I hated the sensation of memory foam but felt that innerspring was not is comfortable. After trying out Purple at Macy's I knew I had to give it a test at home. The first thing I will say is that the feel is different. the square grid is easily identifiable if you press into the mattress but because of the softness and way it collapses it doesn't feel like there are pockets of air in between the squares. so after a little bit of time, (Should be well within the return period), you won't even notice the square grid while you sleep. I sleep without a T-shirt so I can attest that this is the case even with the skin to bedsheet contact. The feeling is difficult to describe but I would say its almost akin to sleeping on a square of soft rubber. The movie Flubber comes to mind, The part of the mattress you sleep on is collapsible and squishable but it doesn't just immediately collapse and does require a reasonable amount of pressure to trigger. As a 180lbs man, lying on my back I can barely feel like I'm sinking at all but it doesn't feel hard. If you like extremely supportive feeling but a soft sensation I would encourage you to give this a try. Side sleeping is very good. You barely feel the depth change and there is almost no change in pressure sensation. Stomach sleeping is also okay however I will say that it does feel awkward at the feet as it doesn't collapse easily so you may Plantarflex more than you'd like to and stretch your ankle. The mattress is marketed as being friendly for hot sleeper. I would say this mattress is temperature neutral. The mattress itself doesnt actually seem to cause me to sleep hot or heat up as im just lying on it during the day. However, the Comforter/blanket/sheets/pillows you use at night can make a huge difference
