This is where we step in. Mattress Land's sleep experts will compare the various components of both of these mattresses, from their constructions to their firmness levels. Continue reading to find out which mattress has the edge in this Avocado mattress vs. Purple mattress comparison.

Avocado Mattress

Avocado is a premium organic and latex mattress company. Their flagship Green Mattress is a high-quality organic latex hybrid mattress. Having an all-natural mattress is essential for chemically sensitive people or those who suffer from airborne allergies, but Avocado goes a step further. They are certified organic after undergoing a rigorous process to have their raw materials, factory, and products certified GOTS organic. They also have a Certified Vegan Mattress, a firmer organic all Latex Mattress, a Vegan Latex Mattress, an Organic Luxury Plush Hybrid Mattress, and their new, low-cost Eco Organic Mattress.

Purple Mattress

Purple, a popular mattress-in-a-box company, is revolutionizing the industry with their responsive, purple-colored polymer. The Purple Gel Grid in their mattresses has air channels to keep things cool while also providing a supportive cradling feel. Overall, they are softer than other memory foam mattresses and are rated in the medium firmness range, which is ideal for side sleepers. Some people enjoy the feel of this mattress, while others prefer a more traditional feel. They also have a Purple Plus mattress with an extra layer of comfort foam and a Purple Hybrid mattress with pressure-relieving GelFlexGrid and the elasticity of individually wrapped coils.

Purple vs. Avocado Overview

The Avocado's organic construction of natural latex and coils provides a long-lasting and firm feel that will appeal to heavier sleepers and seniors seeking solid edge support. The Purple mattress, on the other hand, is best for couples who want less motion transfer and lighter sleepers who want a softer and more contouring bed.

Who Should Choose the Avocado Mattress?

Organic mattress shoppers: The Avocado mattress is made from organic and premium wool, cotton, and Dunlop latex foam, which makes it naturally cool and long-lasting.

Seniors: The Avocado's firm and long-lasting pocketed steel coils provide solid edge support. Edge support makes it easier for seniors or sleepers with limited mobility to get on, off, and sit or sleep on the bed's edge.

Heavier sleepers: Regardless of sleeping position, the Avocado mattress will appeal to heavier sleepers more than the Purple mattress. This is because the Avocado mattress has less sinking than the Purple mattress due to its firmer construction and naturally durable materials.

Who Should Choose the Purple Mattress?

Combination sleepers: The Purple mattress's supportive foam and top layer of gel allow sleepers to easily move around on top of the bed, which is especially important for combination sleepers who switch positions throughout the night.

Couples: Motion isolation is essential for sleepers who do not want to be disturbed by their partner's tossing and turning. Although the Purple's foam muffles unwanted movement better than the Avocado's steel coils, sleepers who prioritize motion isolation may prefer an all-foam mattress.

Sleepers with back pain: While both mattresses are excellent for back sleepers, the Purple's softer feel and foam cushion excel at cushioning and aligning the spine, providing the most pain relief.

Avocado Mattress vs Purple Mattress | Similarities and Differences

Let's compare the similarities and differences between these two beds.

Main Similarities

  • They are both made in the United States and ship for free in a box.
  • Both beds have a 100-night trial period and a 10-year warranty. And they're both about 10 inches tall.
  • Both are ideal for back sleepers as well as many side sleepers.

Main Differences

  • At full retail, the Purple is slightly more expensive than the Avocado Eco Organic. However, we always have promotions available to assist you.
  • We'll go over this in more detail in the construction section, but they're also built very differently. The Avocado Eco Organic is made entirely of organic, eco-friendly materials such as latex and coils, whereas the Purple is made entirely of the Purple grid layer and polyfoams.
  • Because of its distinct design, we believe the Purple would be a better choice for people who are sensitive to pain. It provides excellent pressure relief.

Avocado Mattress vs Purple Mattress | Pricing

Purple's original mattress is the most affordable option from either brand. The manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) for a Purple queen mattress is around $1,299. Avocado, without the pillow topper, has an MSRP of around $1,999 (again, for a queen size). The base Purple Hybrid costs around $1,600, while Avocado with the topper costs around $1,800.

Avocado Mattress vs Purple Mattress | Best Features

So, which bed is the best fit for you? Let's take a look at some of our favorite aspects of each mattress.

Avocado Mattress Best Features

  • We appreciate how the Avocado is a true eco-friendly mattress made entirely of organic materials.
  • We believe it is a good fit for back sleepers, side sleepers, combination sleepers, and hot sleepers due to its materials and pressure-relieving properties. Lighter stomach sleepers may also benefit from it.
  • We also appreciate how inexpensive an organic mattress is.

Purple Mattress Best Features

  • We're really impressed with how well this mattress relieves pressure. We would recommend this bed to anyone who is suffering from pain.
  • This bed is also very responsive. If you alternate between sleeping on your side, back, and/or stomach, you can easily move around on this mattress.
  • This bed also sleeps cool, which is great for my fellow hot sleepers.

Avocado vs Purple Mattress | Review Verdict

Overall, both the Avocado and Purple mattresses are excellent choices for those looking for a bed-in-a-box sleeping solution in California, Washington, Idaho, and Nevada. Your personal preference will determine whether you choose the Avocado or the Purple. If you prefer a firmer mattress and sleep on your back or stomach, the Avocado may be a better choice.

The Purple, on the other hand, is the way to go if you're a hot sleeper who prefers a slightly softer, more conforming feel to your mattress. Check out our mattress deals page to take advantage of additional savings regardless of brand!
