Purple Mattress — We’ve had our Purple mattress for 6 months now and I can honestly say we love it! It’s the perfect balance between medium firm and firm. It may take some adjusting if your body had gotten used to bad posture in your old mattress. The first few weeks I wasn’t so sure about our mattress, but after about a month I fell in love with and now our Purple mattress is my favorite place to snuggle and sleep. Every time we travel I can’t wait to come home to it.
