Thread: Casper vs Purple mattress?

  1. #1

    Question Casper vs Purple mattress?

    Has anyone with a cervical injury tried and had success with these mattresses?

    I'm not a fan of memory foam but I think maybe in addition to other mattress springs and or layers that it can be positive.

    I would not recommend the Tempur-Pedic for the long run for anyone who dislikes sinking into a bed. I'm taller and thin (6 feet/135) and I still sink considerably in a firm Tempur-Pedic. This has made rolling difficult.

    The purple mattress looks to have some of the benefits of pressure relief but also some bounce/spring.

    All thoughts are always welcome.

    The Purple is a great bed, but turned out to be a bit too hard for me. The wife loved it. We then tried a Sleep Number I7 and returned it. No side support and I just couldn't get comfortable. Wife hated it and woke up in pain. We're now trying a Purple 4. It may be a keeper. Very comfortable although expensive.

    Purple for looks fantastic. I like that it has edge support.

    Try the 1inch or 1.5 memory foam, Feels comfortable but you won't sink so far down you need a crane to turn or get off bed. Walmart has different sizes and reasonably priced.

    My wife and I have a sleep number bed and we do not like it at all. We are looking at the Tempur-Pedic. What model do you have and how old is it? What is your injury? Do you roll yourself?

    Yeah, we're really liking it. They have a great try-it-out policy. If you don't like it after 30 days they'll come pick it up. Most online companies, including Sleep Number, have pretty good return policies. I was really surprised how easy it was to return the Sleep Number. Good luck!

    We have a Sleep number and like it but its time for a new bed 10 years.

    We bought a sleep number in hopes it would help me in rolling side to side and it does in combination with the adjustable base. By raising the head it makes it more easy to roll, also from time to time I can turn my sleep number to 100 and make the bed more firm also helps rolling.

    Without the adjustable I would not be able to turn on my own.
