Ouch / too soft for this back sleeper

We recently got the Purple 3 after trying the Purple original for 90 days, but my partner thought it the original Purple wasn't firm enough. (We got this as a cooler option from the Tempurpedic -- memory foam supposedly makes the sleepers run hot; I'm always cold and I even thought so.) I preferred the Purple 2 in the showroom, he preferred the 4, so our compromise was the 3. My lower back experiences pain now (similar to when we had the Tempurpedic but NOT when we had the original Purple). I had thought my weight (< 125 lbs) wouldn't notice a difference in softer beds but I guess my hips just don't feel like there is ANY spinal support. We're not considering other options....
