Purple Sheets vs Purple Softstretch Sheets

Purple logoIf you have or are buying a Purple mattress, you should look at Purple mattress sheets to go with it. In most cases the sheets don’t matter very much but when it comes to Purple brand products, they’re so unique that it’s best to buy the brand name sheets.

Why Buy Purple Mattress Sheets?

You should consider buying Purple mattress sheets because of the Purple grid. It’s flexible in all directions and moves with you. It also sleeps cooler than almost any mattress you can buy.

If you use regular cotton sheets they’ll fit more tight and restrict the movement that’s a key selling point of owning a Purple mattress. This movement is great for bad backs, sore hips and more. You really can’t beat it. There’s nothing like it. You won’t get stuck in it (like memory foam) and it feels sort of like you’re floating on the mattress.

Of course Purple brand sheets work with any mattress. They’re a higher performance sheet that’s moisture wicking. The fabric is soft and stretchy. They come in the same sizes. However, there are differences in the fabric, thickness, stretchiness and colors offered.

Both offer a 100 day trial in which you can see how you like them and then you have 100 days and if you decide to return them, you can get a full refund. They each have a 1-year warranty.

Each sheet set comes with a flat sheet, fitted sheet and 2 pillowcases (the twin comes with 1 pillow case). If you have a Purple pillow, only the Purple Plush comes in king size. You can buy SoftStretch sells pillow cases separately, but the Purple sheets are only available as a set.

Purple has 2 sheet styles to choose from and I think one is superior to the other and I’ll tell you why below…and we appreciate and may earn a commission when you shop through our links.

Verdict: We found them to be a bit too stretchy and the durability isn’t as good as expected for the price. And they only come in 4 colors. They’re more thin though, so if you like that, go with the Purple. Just be sure to wash on cold and dry on cool to prolong the life of your sheets as long as possible.

Purple SoftStretch Sheets

The SoftStretch Sheets are still stretchy but not as stretchy as the original Purple sheets are. They’re also breathable, but they have added polyester to make them more durable. Thicker than the Purple sheets.

Sizes: Twin/Twin XL, Full/Full XL/Queen, King/Cal King, Split King

Colors: True White, Stormy Grey, Soft Lilac, Natural Oat, Morning Mist, Deep Purple

Note on colors: we think the natural oat should be more of a tan color than they are (they’re more light gray colored) and we’d like to see creme color added.

Price for a Queen: $149

Verdict: Get the SoftStretch. They’re thicker, more durable, softer and not as stretchy as the Purple sheets. However, you get the same breathability. They do cost more but we think it’s worth it. There is financing if you want to divide up your purchase into payments – ideal especially if you’re going to buy a Purple mattress, pillows or other accessories. Check website for bundle deals.
