Perfect for larger frames

Just got my Purple 4 yesterday. Slept on it last nite. I know I will need to give it time to really test it out. So far first impression from a 220+ person. The 4 is VERY soft. So much I thought there was no way it could support a large person. I stood corrected. You feel like you sink down a bit. I'm an avid side sleeper, rarely sleep on my back ever. I felt cradled last nite, no pressure on my hips and shoulder. I did find it a bit of a struggle to turn on the other side, more then what I seen watching videos on the Purple 4, but these were very trim ppl. I have to say I slept pretty darn good. Woke up with no pains at all. It really is the most comfortable bed I ever slept on. My dogs slept good as well. My male black lab was hogging my side of the bed and didn't move all nite. Every time I turned over there he was in the same position till the morning, and I had to wake him up. I also bought the platform base, mattress pad and sheets. I normally sleep very hot, but even with a new Korean mink blanket I woke up cool. My comparison is coming from recently having the Tempur Pedic Adapt Medium Hybrid. I did not care for it. Every time I sat on that bed I felt the coils at the bottom, and if I turned hard I felt the coils. Not with the purple, a solid thick mattress. You can jump on the bed and feel no bottom. Unbelievable coolness. I'll update as the months go by for a comparison.
