Purple vs. Saatva Mattress Comparison

Purple and Saatva are two of the most well-known mattress brands in the industry. We put their original models head to head in this Purple vs. Saatva mattress comparison.

The Saatva Classic is a luxury innerspring mattress with a euro pillow top that’s available in three firmness levels and two heights. The Purple is an all-foam bed with a unique gel polymer grid that gives the sleeper a floating sensation. It comes in one firmness level and has a medium-firm feel (6.5/10). 

The Purple is a great fit for back sleepers and side sleepers under 230 lbs. It’s also one of the most cooling foam beds we’ve tested. The Saatva is better for those who want multiple firmness options. It can accommodate any sleeping position, depending on the firmness level you choose. Keep reading to learn their differences, similarities, constructions, price points, and tips for choosing the best new mattress for your home.

Comparing Saatva Mattress & Purple Mattress

The Purple is unlike any other foam mattress, which makes this innerspring vs. all-foam mattress comparison a little more interesting. Though it contains no coils, the Purple offers some of the qualities of an innerspring or hybrid mattress, like cooling. It also has plenty of responsiveness, a popular feature among the best mattresses for combination sleepers

Key Differences

  • Each mattress model from Purple offers a gel-like floating sensation, while the Saatva allows light bounce, some initial plushness on top, and solid overall support.
  • The Purple measures only 9.5” tall (which is shorter than average), and the Saatva is available in 11.5” and 14.5” models.
  • The Saatva offers noticeably better edge support for people who sit on the edges of their mattress and couples who want to spread out.

Key Similarities

  • Both mattresses sleep much cooler than average: The Saatva does so thanks to its coil-on-coil design, and the Purple encourages airflow with the columns in the grid comfort layer.
  • Both mattresses have above-average durability thanks to sturdy base materials and resilient comfort layers.
  • Both mattresses use a combination of mattress materials. Saatva has a coil-on-coil design and luxury details that elevate it above the average old-school innerspring bed. The Purple sleeps exceptionally cool and offers a floating sensation unlike any other foam mattress on the market.

Who is the Saatva Mattress Best For… 

  • People who like sleeping “on” their mattress: The coil-on-coil design and relatively thin comfort system create a lifted sensation on the Saatva, which you’ll enjoy if you don’t like sinking too deeply into your mattress.
  • Hot sleepers: The coil layers allow strong airflow throughout the mattress, keeping the surface cool for hot sleepers.
  • Value shoppers: The Saatva’s sophisticated design, high-quality materials, and strong performance across the board come at a reasonable price point. The brand also offers free white glove delivery to elevate the shopping experience.

Not Best For…

  • Memory foam lovers: If you like the feel of memory foam, you’ll want to rule this mattress out. It doesn’t offer the same pressure-relieving cradle as models with thicker foam comfort layers.
  • Couples who prioritize motion isolation: Although Saatva does offer excellent edge-to-edge support, its high rate of motion transfer can be problematic for couples who awaken easily to one another’s movements.
  • People with extreme joint pain: The Saatva mattress didn’t do the best in our pressure relief test. We saw pressure buildup in the hips and shoulders of side sleepers. However, the Plush Soft version may offer better pressure relief (we tested the Luxury Firm version).

Who is the Purple Mattress Best For… 

  • People who sleep hot on all-foam beds: The Purple Grid promotes steady airflow to keep the mattress cool, especially compared to other models made primarily with foam.
  • Shoppers interested in a mattress with a “floating” feel: The Purple feels simultaneously squishy and firm, almost like gel. The Purple Grid will buckle where pressure is applied and stay upright elsewhere, creating a “floating” sensation and great pressure relief for sensitive joints.
  • Lightweight and average-weight side sleepers: Side sleepers under 230 lbs should be able to apply enough pressure to activate the collapsing nature of the Purple Grid around the hips and shoulders.

Not Best For…

  • People who like a traditional memory foam feel or sleeping “in” their mattress: If you prefer traditional, hotel-like mattresses or want a true foam feel, you’re not going to get that with the Purple.
  • Heavyweight stomach sleepers: Most larger sleepers in this position will sink too deeply into the grid to achieve healthy spinal alignment. Specially, the hips will sink below the shoulders in the stomach sleeping position.
  • Heavyweight side sleepers: We’ve heard some complaints that sleepers over 230 lbs sink through the Purple Grid to the firmer support layers, creating tension at the shoulders and hips.

Saatva & Purple Performace Differences

Firmness / Feel 

The Purple is available in one firmness level that’s medium-firm, or 6.5/10 on our 1–10 firmness scale. The Saatva Classic is offered in three firmness levels: Plush Soft (3/10), Luxury Firm (6/10), and Firm (8/10).

Lying on the Purple, you’ll experience a sensation that’s almost like lying on gel. It’s squishy yet dense, and the grid system will buckle based on where your weight is most heavily distributed. Overall, the feel is firm and “floaty,” like a waterbed.

Regardless of which firmness level you choose on the Saatva, your entire body will sink lightly into the pillow-top comfort layer, but the initial feel of the mattress is dense and supportive.

Saatva Performance By Sleeping Position:

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

Purple Performance By Sleeping Position:

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

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

Motion Isolation

The Saatva’s responsive surface and bouncy nature from the coil support system don’t offer much motion isolation. That’s problematic because the best mattresses for couples tend to have great motion isolation. Unfortunately, the Purple isn’t a good choice for couples either because the Purple Grid doesn’t isolate motion very well, but it is a great mattress for sex.

Edge Support 

The Purple is on par with most all-foam beds in that it bows down around the edges when pressure is applied. Its firmness level and the responsive nature of the grid may allow it to sink less than competing foam models. 

The Saatva has excellent edge support thanks to its thick coil-on-coil system, which reinforces the perimeter to prevent sinkage. If you’re sleeping with a partner who pushes you to the edge of even a Queen size or King size mattress, proper edge support is a huge consideration.

Pressure Relief

The Purple Grid is pressure-relieving yet firm at the same time, but its ability to provide pressure relief for you will depend largely on your sleeping position. The grid buckles where the most pressure is applied. 

For example, average-weight back sleepers should experience lumbar support and light cushioning at the shoulders. How well it relieves pressure will also depend on your body weight. Lightweight sleepers may not be able to apply as much pressure, therefore failing to activate the Purple Grid enough to buckle and create contour.

The softest version of the Saatva (Plush Soft) offers the most pressure relief, while the firmest version offers the least. All three versions are designed to provide some pressure relief when you first lie down on the mattress, but they don’t offer the same relief as a slow-moving memory foam bed. Though quite soft at first, the layers of coils beneath give the bed a firmer feel overall, so it may not be the best choice for people with painful pressure points.

Spine Alignment

Spinal alignment on any mattress depends heavily on your body weight and primary sleeping position. The best mattresses for stomach sleepers tend to be firmer mattresses, so we recommend the Saatva Luxury Firm or Firm to prevent the hips from sinking. Average-weight stomach sleepers may find the support they need on the Purple as well. 

Side sleepers over 230 lbs may find that their shoulders “bottom out” on the Purple, but the Plush Soft version of the Saatva could offer enough contouring around the hips and shoulders to keep the spine in healthy alignment. The best mattresses for side sleepers should allow the hips to sink far enough into the mattress to achieve proper alignment. 

Back sleepers should do fine on either mattress, as both offer enough lift to keep the hips in line with the shoulders and enough support to evenly distribute body weight across the mattress. For more information, check out the best mattresses for back sleepers.

Durability

The Hyper-Elastic Polymer Grid is said to be much more durable than traditional foams (for instance, polyfoam, memory foam, and even latex), so the Purple should be a long-lasting mattress. The Saatva’s materials and construction make it a durable mattress, as the two sets of coils add bounce, support, and responsiveness to prevent sagging and indentations.

Cooling / Temperature

The Saatva’s design has a great deal of room for airflow throughout the mattress. The organic cotton cover is also very breathable, preventing the foam layers from trapping too much heat. The Purple’s ability to regulate temperature relative to other all-foam mattresses is one of its standout features. The gel grid and breathable cover allow room for airflow when compared to beds with memory foam or polyfoam comfort layers.

Saatva vs. Purple Mattress Construction

Saatva Mattress Construction

saatva classic mattress construction
Cover Organic Cotton Cover
Comfort Layer  Polyfoam Euro-Top
Transitional Layer Memory Foam Lumbar Pad & Microcoils
Support Layer Steel Coils & Edge Foam
Mattress Thickness  11.5” or 14.5”

The Saatva has a euro-top cover, which serves as the bed’s primary comfort system. The cover has a thin layer of polyfoam sewn in as the top layer, so you’ll notice some hug when you lie down, but you won’t sink in. Beneath the euro-top is a thin layer of memory foam under the center third of the mattress. This adds lumbar support, which should encourage spinal alignment, but doesn’t drastically alter the mattress’s feel.

The transition layer of the Saatva is a 4″ layer of 14.5 gauge pocketed coils. These have a mid-level thickness that gives the bed some responsiveness but don’t make it as bouncy or springy as a traditional innerspring mattress. The pocketed nature of these coils reduces motion transfer and makes the Saatva more conforming than other coil beds.

The support core of the Saatva is 4”–7” of recycled steel Bonnell coils (their height depends on the mattress height you choose). They sit directly below the transition layer of coils, giving the bed its signature “coil-on-coil” construction. This layering adds extra support and durability, and it also allows for above-average airflow. The edges of the bed are reinforced by high-density foam, which helps prevent sinkage at the perimeter when sitting or lying down.

Purple Mattress Construction

purple mattress construction 2
Cover Polyester Blend Cover
Comfort Layer  2” Purple Grid
Transitional Layer 3.5” High-Density Polyfoam
Support Layer 4” High-Density Polyfoam
Mattress Thickness  9.5”

The Purple’s three layers are encased in a soft, stretchy knit cover of polyester, viscose, and Lycra spandex. It features a slip-guard bottom, and Purple recommends spot cleaning the cover with detergent if stains occur.

The comfort layer of the mattress is Purple’s proprietary Hyper-Elastic Polymer Grid. This material is unique to Purple mattresses and buckles where pressure is applied without compressing across the rest of the surface. Purple shapes the polymer into a grid-like pattern, which promotes steady airflow throughout the top portion of the mattress, helping the Purple sleep cooler than most foam beds.

The transition layer is 3.5” high-density polyfoam, which simply acts as a buffer between your body and the dense support core. It’s thicker than transitional layers found in other all-foam beds, which may contribute to the bed’s medium-firm feel.

The support core—or base layer—of the Purple is 4” of high-density polyfoam (higher density than the transition layer). This base material stabilizes the bed so that it provides lift and encourages spinal alignment. Altogether, the layers measure 9.5” tall, with the support and transition layers constituting 7.5” of the bed’s total height for a supportive, dense feel.

Shipping and Returns for Saatva & Purple

Saatva

One of the perks of purchasing a Saatva mattress is that it comes with free white glove delivery if you live in the contiguous U.S. This means that a team will set up the mattress in your home and remove your old mattress and foundation upon request. Saatva does not currently ship directly to Alaska or Hawaii, but you may be able to request delivery through a freight forwarder.

Once the Saatva Classic arrives, you’ll have a 180-night sleep trial period to try it out at home. If you decide it isn’t right for you, you can return or exchange it at any point during the trial. Returns and exchanges aren’t free, and you’ll be charged a $99 transportation fee and any difference between mattress costs (for exchanges).

If you keep the Saatva, it’s protected by a 15-year warranty. The warranty policy states that Saatva will replace a Saatva Classic mattress that’s deemed defective at no cost to you during the first two years of ownership. During years three to 15, Saatva will repair and re-cover the mattress for a flat fee of $198, which accounts for a $99 shipping fee both ways. 

To read more about the Saatva warranty or return policies, check out our Saatva mattress warranty breakdown or Saatva mattress return policy breakdown.

Purple

The Purple Original ships free to the contiguous U.S. as a bed in a box. Customers in Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada are charged a shipping fee at checkout. The mattress arrives rolled and compressed in a cardboard box, so you’ll need to remove it from the box and plastic wrap, unroll it, and allow it to expand on a flat surface for 24–48 hours after delivery for off-gassing.

Purple offers a 100-night sleep trial for the Purple Original, which begins the day the mattress is delivered to your doorstep. Purple requests that customers spend 21 nights, or three weeks, on the mattress before initiating a return, stating that it allows time for your body to adjust to the bed’s support level. If you decide you don’t want the mattress, you can contact Purple customer service, and they’ll arrange pickup and issue a full refund.

Read More: Purple Mattress Return Policy Breakdown

If you keep the Purple mattress, it’s covered by a limited 10-year warranty, which begins on the date of purchase. Purple will repair or replace a mattress with defects as long as the mattress is used on a firm, flat, solid surface. The warranty covers indentations deeper than 1” and splitting and cracking in the mattress materials. The mattress cover is not protected under warranty.

Our Final Take

Is the Purple or Saatva right for you? If you want a unique, firm-yet-squishy, gel-like feel, go with the Purple. If you want a traditional innerspring feel with a bit of softness, go with the Saatva. 

Heavyweight sleepers are more likely to find the support they need on the firmest version of the Saatva, and lightweight sleepers are better off on the Plush Soft version of the Saatva, which will allow them to sink in comfortably. The Purple hits a sweet spot for average-weight sleepers who like foam beds, sleep hot, and want to try a mattress with a unique “floating” sensation.
