When it comes to getting a good night's sleep, the right mattress can make all the difference. I've tested out a few mattresses throughout the years, and they're some of the best I've come across. However, once I tried out the Purple RestorePremier Hybrid Mattress ($3,495), it clearly stood out from the rest.

Our editors love the Purple Plus Mattress and have sung praises about the TwinCloud Pillow, so I was already optimistic about the brand. Having back, shoulder, and posture issues, I prefer sleeping on a firmer mattress to align and support my spine. That's why I was keen on trying out Purple's RestorePremier mattress; the brand claims it offers superior pressure relief and full-body support for minimal morning aches. Honestly, it sounded too good to be true, especially since it's a medium-feel mattress. But then I tested it out for myself.

What I Like About the Purple RestorePremier Hybrid Mattress

I've experienced one too many mornings where I wake up with a knot in my neck or with pain in my back — that is, until I slept on Purple's RestorePremiere mattress. In fact, the first night I slept on this mattress, I was blissfully asleep for a full 10 hours. And every night since, I've slept like a baby and woken up with barely any aches or pains. Hybrid mattresses combine the benefits of a traditional coil mattress and memory-foam options to deliver unparalleled support without a stiff feel. These mattresses usually have edge-to-edge support, which prevents sinking over time, too. However, Purple takes it a step further with its unique GelFlex Grid Technology.

The comfort layer is made from a hyper-elastic polymer that is designed to adapt to your body's contours, providing optimal support and pressure relief. This also helps keep your spine supported and in a neutral position no matter how you sleep throughout the night. As someone who tends to toss and turn, it truly conforms to my body no matter how I sleep, whether it's on my side, back, or even stomach. I can feel the mattress respond to my body, providing the right amount of support and keeping my body aligned yet cradled. On days when I work out and have muscle soreness, I reap the benefits of the GelFlex Grid and feel its effects even more. The tension in my body just disappears, relieving my muscle and joint pain, and my back realigns like puzzle pieces gliding into place. Plus, you can feel the GelFlex Grid layer of the mattress, and when you lie down, the textured surface feels like a massage.

The cherry on top of this supportive, pressure-relieving mattress is that it's actually cooling as well. The top layer is moisture wicking, so not only do you feel refreshed all night long, but the mattress also stays sanitary and fresh. The GelFlex Grid layer, as well as the deeper layers, promote airflow, adding to the mattress's breathability and comfort. As someone who prioritizes spinal support, this mattress is a must for those dealing with body pains and alignment issues.

What's Worth Noting About the Purple RestorePremier Hybrid Mattress

This mattress is the closest thing to cloud nine; however, I prefer sleeping on a firm mattress. Although the RestorePremier Mattress has a medium feel, this mattress is on the firmer side overall, so if you prefer cloud-like softness, this mattress might be too stiff for your needs. However, you can always check out the line's softer model, the RestorePlus Hybrid Mattress ($2,895). If you have a traditional box spring or a bed frame with slats more than three inches apart, you will have to invest in a foundation that can better support this mattress.

Who's the Purple RestorePremier Hybrid Mattress Best For?

This mattress is made for those who require pressure relief and support for their spine and body. No matter what position you sleep in, the RestorePremier mattress will conform to your tosses and turns, providing the cradling yet responsive support you need. This mattress is ideal for anyone dealing with body pains who needs joint support. Plus, it's breathable and cooling as well for those who sleep hot.

Is the Purple RestorePremier Hybrid Mattress Worth the Splurge?

Purple has a 100-night risk-free trial where you can really test out your mattress and see if it's the right fit, plus an excellent return and exchange policy, where you can swap one model for another if you change your mind. With the RestorePremier Mattress, the brand offers white-glove delivery, so you don't have to worry about setting it up yourself. Plus, you get a free set of Purple's ultra-soft complete comfort sheets with your purchase.

A quality mattress is always worth the investment; it's something you'll use pretty much every day for a very long time. Not only do you spend at least a third of your day sleeping, but the lifespan of a mattress is about eight to 10 years. When you suffer from back pain or joint pain, you need a mattress that supports your body and meets your needs. It will help prevent future injuries and provide pain relief as well, improving your quality of life with a good night's rest. Purple's RestorePremier Hybrid Mattress is absolutely worth every penny.
