Sleep Positions

Winner of this Category: Tie

The firmness of your bed, in combination with the quality of the materials and the distribution of them play an important role in this. Since the Purple options are firmer they are better for back sleepers and since Leesa is softer they are comfortable for side sleepers (keep in mind, however, if you are prone to hip pain it might be too soft for you).

Motion Transfer

Winner of this Category: Purple

Due to the stretchy Comfort Grid, Purple is pretty good for motion isolation. The powder in between the layers also keep the bed quiet. This powder is deemed safe by Purple and simply is used to avoid the sound of the rubbery material rubbing against itself.

The Leesa mattress is average for motion isolation.

Both the Sapira and New Purple offer hybrid mattresses, but since there are springs in them, the beds will be slightly bouncier.
