Purple vs. Helix Mattress Comparison

We took a deep dive into these two brands in our Purple vs. Helix mattress comparison. Read on to discover what sets these different mattresses apart from each other and which model is best based on your preferences.

The primary difference between Helix and Purple mattresses is that Helix creates hybrid mattresses consisting of both foam and coils, while Purple uses a unique, gel-like polymer grid on top of either support foam or coils. In this comparison, we’ll primarily be focusing on the Helix Midnight mattress and the original Purple mattress.

In short, the Helix is better for side sleepers, couples, and those who prefer the conforming feel of memory foam. The Purple is better for hot sleepers, back sleepers, and those who enjoy feeling like they are “floating” on their mattress.

Comparing Helix & Purple Mattresses

Key Differences

  • Feel: While both beds have a medium-firm feel, the Purple is slightly firmer than the Helix Midnight.
  • Temperature: Both beds are temperature-regulating, but in different ways: the Purple Grid technology in the Purple mattress naturally absorbs body heat, and the coil base layer in the Helix improves airflow through the bulk of the mattress.
  • Construction: The Helix incorporates both foam and coils in its design, while the Purple is Hyper-Elastic Polymer and foam.

Key Similarities

  • Buyer Experience: Both mattresses come with generous 100-night sleep trial periods and 10-year limited warranties.
  • Price: Both mattresses are relatively affordable and great for value shoppers. For similar options, see the best affordable mattresses.
  • Sleeping Positions: Back sleepers and side sleepers can find comfort on either mattress.

Purple vs. Helix Video Comparison

Watch as our editors duke it out over which mattress is better: the Helix Midnight or the Purple Original.

Purple Mattress

The Purple mattress is temperature-neutral with a floating feel, thanks to its 2" Purple Grid and dual-layered comfort foam base. The Purple Grid is made with hyper-elastic polymer, which is a gel-like substance that provides lots of pressure relief.

Who is the Purple Mattress Best For… 

  • Hot sleepers should appreciate the breathability and heat regulation of the Purple Grid top layer.
  • Those with back pain will benefit from how well the Purple mattress keeps the spine aligned.
  • Sleepers who enjoy a weightless “floating” feel will find what they’re looking for on the Purple Grid.

Not Best For…

  • People who prefer traditional memory foam probably won’t enjoy the buoyant, rubbery sensation of the Purple mattress. If this sounds like you, check out the best memory foam mattresses.
  • Side sleepers with joint pain will get some pressure relief, but there are better options on our roundup of best mattresses for shoulder pain.
  • Heavyweight sleepers will get better support on mattresses with a coil base layer.

Who is the Helix Midnight Mattress Best For… 

  • Side sleepers should benefit from the pressure relief and spinal alignment offered by the Helix Midnight mattress.
  • Couples can sleep soundly knowing they’re unlikely to be disrupted by motion transfer when their partner moves; plus, this mattress is cooling and responsive enough for sex.
  • Memory foam lovers will appreciate the 2″ layer of memory foam on top of the Helix Midnight.

Not Best For…

  • Stomach sleepers over 230 lbs will want to look for a firmer bed to keep their hips elevated on the mattress (which prevents lower back pain).
  • Because the Helix Midnight is medium-firm, those who want a softer or firmer mattress will find a Helix model better suited for their preferences by referencing our Helix Sleep mattress comparison.
  • Combination sleepers may feel a little stuck in the thick foams above the Midnight’s coils. For more responsive options, see the best mattresses for combination sleepers.

Performance Differences

Firmness / Feel 

We rate mattresses on a firmness scale from 1–10, with 1 being the softest and 10 being the firmest. Typically, the best mattresses for side sleepers are softer, conform to the hips and shoulders, and allow for proper spinal alignment. In the contrast, the best mattresses for back sleepers and stomach sleepers are firmer and more supportive

The Purple mattress is a 6.5/10 on our firmness scale. The Helix Midnight is a bit softer, at a 6/10. Both mattresses should work well for back and side sleepers, but the Helix Midnight is a bit better for side sleepers and stomach sleepers.

Purple Performance By Sleeping Position:

Body Type: BACK SLEEPERS STOMACH SLEEPERS SIDE SLEEPERS
Lightweight (< 130 lbs):  5 3 4
Average weight (130–230 lbs): 5 2 4
Heavyweight (> 230 lbs):  3 1 4

Helix Midnight Performance By Sleeping Position:

Body Type: BACK SLEEPERS STOMACH SLEEPERS SIDE SLEEPERS
Lightweight (< 130 lbs):  4 4 5
Average weight (130–230 lbs): 4 4 5
Heavyweight (> 230 lbs):  3 3 4

1 = Very poor, 2 = Not good, 3 = Fair, 4 = Good, 5 = Excellent

Motion Isolation

If you toss and turn while you sleep, or if you tend to get up frequently, you might want to invest in a mattress with low motion transfer, especially if you share your bed with someone else. Motion isolation keeps movement on your side of the bed so it’s less likely that you’ll disturb your partner. 

The Helix Midnight features low motion transfer, making it one of the best mattresses for couples. The Purple Grid doesn’t do as good of a job at isolating motion, but it still performs above-average in this category.

Edge Support 

Over time, the edges of your mattress may lose some firmness, making it more difficult to get in and out of bed. For the elderly or people with bad backs, having a mattress with edge support is a necessity.

The Helix Midnight’s high-density, hybrid construction delivers great edge support, and you won’t have to worry about the mattress losing its edge shape in the years to come. The Purple, while offering some edge support, may sink if you put a lot of weight on the edges of the bed.

Pressure Relief

A good mattress relieves pressure on your body so that you don’t wake up with aches and pains every morning. In order to provide pressure relief, the Helix Midnight incorporates memory foam into its design, allowing the mattress to contour with your body and reduce pressure on your joints.

The Purple Grid on top of the Purple mattress is very flexible, enabling it to collapse under weight and alleviate pressure under high impact areas like shoulders and hips.

Each of these mattresses has a slightly different feel. The memory foam layer on top of the Helix has a conforming “hug,” while the Purple Grid has a weightless feel. Overall, the Helix does a slightly better job at relieving pressure than the Purple Grid.

Spine Alignment 

Keeping your spine aligned is key to reducing neck and back pain. The Purple and Helix Midnight both do a good job of promoting spinal alignment (AKA, good sleeping posture). However, stomach sleepers and side sleepers will get better alignment on the Helix Midnight.

See Also: Best Mattresses for Stomach Sleepers

Cooling / Temperature 

The Helix Midnight and Purple mattresses both incorporate various materials into their construction to keep sleepers temperature-neutral—if not cool—throughout the night. The Purple is the more cooling mattress because of the temperature-regulating Purple Grid on top of the mattress. The Midnight has the benefit of breathable coils, but the memory foam layer directly beneath the sleeper will likely retain some heat.

Durability 

You want a mattress that retains its shape and form for as long as possible. Helix and Purple have designed their products to last a long time, which is why each brand offers a 10-year warranty on their mattresses.

The Helix Midnight has a hybrid design with sturdy coils that help it should help retain its firmness and shape. The memory foam top layer is most at risk of deteriorating prematurely by forming body impressions. The Purple has a less durable foam base, but the Purple Grid on top is one of the most durable materials on the mattress market.

Purple Mattress vs. Helix Midnight Construction

Purple Mattress Construction 

Screen Shot 2020 08 27 at 10.04.45 AM
Cover SoftFlex Breathable Cover
Comfort Layer  2” Hyper-Elastic Polymer Grid
Transitional Layer 3.5” Polyfoam
Support Layer 4” Polyfoam Base Layer
Mattress Thickness  9.5”

The Purple mattress is supported by a high-density polyfoam base layer and slightly softer foam transition layer. On top is the bed’s famed Purple Grid, which is made from a proprietary gel-like material called Hyper-Elastic Polymer. The mattress cover is stretchy enough to move with the Purple Grid.

The Purple Grid is designed to increase airflow and flexibility by being molded into a waffle shape with over a thousand cube-shaped pockets. Hyper-Elastic Polymer is very responsive, collapsing easily under weight and staying lifted to supported lower pressure areas like your lower back

Helix Mattress Construction

Cover Soft Touch Cover
Comfort Layer  Memory Plus Foam
Transitional Layer High-Grade Polyfoam
Support Layer Pocketed Coils + DuraDense Foam
Mattress Thickness  12”

The Helix Midnight has a foundation of pocketed coils that are individually wrapped to improve motion isolation and ergonomic support. They also give the mattress a bounciness not found in all-foam beds. A thin layer of high-density foam beneath the coils improves the  bed’s stability and durability.

Above the support layers, a layer of polyfoam prevents you from feeling the coils as you sink into the top layer of Memory Plus Foam—an exclusive memory foam that conforms to the shape of your body without causing you to feel stuck in one place. The mattress cover is made from soft, breathable fabric.

Shipping and Returns

Purple

The Purple mattress comes with free shipping to any of the 48 contiguous states, and for an additional fee, you can request white glove delivery. This service includes delivery to your home, setting up your new mattress, removing your old mattress, and disposing of any packing materials.

Purple offers a 100-night trial period—starting from the day of delivery—to see if you like your new mattress. If you have any problems within that time frame, you can return your mattress hassle-free, via Purple’s return policy. However, Purple requires a 21-night “break-in period” before returning the mattress.

You’ll also receive a 10-year warranty with the purchase of your mattress. For more info, see our Purple mattress warranty breakdown.

Helix Sleep

The Helix Midnight is gently compressed and rolled into a box, which is shipped to you via FedEx Ground. All Helix mattresses come with free delivery anywhere within the continental U.S., but Canadian shoppers need to pay a $250 fee per mattress as well as a customs tax.

It can take approximately three to seven business days between placing your order and receiving it, and when it arrives, FedEx will leave it outside your door or on the ground floor of your residential building. 

Helix includes a 100-night trial period with the purchase of a Helix Midnight mattress. Still, you’re required to wait until after a 30-night break-in period before you can initiate a return. After that period is over, you can contact their customer support center to begin the return process. 

Helix also offers a 10-year warranty for the Midnight. For more info, see our Helix mattress warranty breakdown.

Our Final Take 

The Purple and Helix Midnight are both great mattresses with their own set of pros and cons. If you’re looking for a naturally cooling mattress with a unique weightless feel, the Purple could be a great fit for you. If you want a more traditional-feeling mattress with bounce and cushioning foam, the Helix Midnight is the better choice. Either way, you can’t go wrong with the 100-night sleep trials and 10-year warranties offered by each mattress brand.
