Purple Queen Mattress Unboxing & First Impressions

Updated August 4, 2020

How long has it been since you had a new mattress? If it’s been more than seven years, you’re likely due for something new. The great news is that it takes just a fraction of the effort to get a new mattress from the factory into your bedroom. The bed-in-a-box industry has taken the Internet by storm, and all you have to do is browse your many options from your computer or mobile devices. I just got my Purple mattress today, and I was very happy with the convenience. Not only is your mattress delivered to your door compressed in a box, but you’ll have a delivery crew available to get everything set up as well as remove the trash and your old mattress. My crew was very professional and had me up and ready to go in no time.

Unboxing/First Impression

Discreet Delivery

I really like that the mattress isn’t just delivered at your doorstep when you’re at work. This is the case for many companies. I live on a pretty quiet street, but this could be an issue in high-crime areas. Purple’s shipper will be in contact, and they arrange a day for you to be home to meet the delivery crew. Keep in mind that the delivery time will range. For example, I set mine up for a Tuesday afternoon from one to five, so I had to make sure I was close to home. They do call you a half-hour ahead of time in case you do step out.

Soft Where You Want It, Firm Where You Need It: How It Works

If you’ve looked at Purple’s website, they talk about how this product works to offer softness and firmness in just the right places. This is quite a feat for any mattress company to accomplish. So, how does it work? It all lies in the Smart Comfort Grid™. This specially-designed layer is unique to Purple, and it works to:

   Flex to cradle and reduce pressure points

   Provide a zero-gravity feel

   Sleep cool

   Provide adequate support for heavier areas of the body
