Maxim mattress is a California based mattress company that has been building innerspring and hybrid mattresses for the past 30+ years. They are well priced and offer a good variety of different mattresses for the budget conscious shopper. In terms of comfort, most find these mattresses comfortable, but some had concerns about durability and material quality.
Popular mattress-in-a-box company, Purple®, is taking the industry by storm with their responsive, purple colored polymer. The Purple Gel Grid used in their mattresses features air channels to keep things cool while providing a supportive cradling feel. Overall, they run a bit less firm than other memory foam mattresses and are rated in the medium firmness range, which usually works well for side sleepers. Some folks love the feel of this mattress, though there are others that prefer a more traditional feel.
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Purple in this match up!

Some sleepers are comfortable with their new beds, but others were not as satisfied with how the mattress made them feel. Even though some folks appreciate these mattresses, they have lower customer satisfaction that average overall. Below you will find more information from customers on the specifics from these mattresses.
In terms of having comfortable support for all, these mattresses have mixed feelings. Some feel like the mattresses provide good comfort, but others had issues with discomfort. If you are heavier than average, you may want to do additional research to make sure these mattresses will work for you
Edge support is an important attribute for those that like to sit on the side of the mattress without discomfort. Unfortunately, some may experience dipping while putting weight on the edges of these mattresses.
Durability is one of the most important attributes to finding a mattress. We all wish that our mattress would be just as comfortable a decade later as it was the first day. Sadly, not everyone has experienced great durability with these mattresses specifically. If you are looking to use one of these full time, read over the reviews, warranty, and return policies to make sure that you are safe in your purchase.
Customer satisfaction is not always easy to figure out with brands doing lots of work to have superb online reputations. That said, overall, customers report these mattresses are comfortable. However, there were some sleepers that didn't like the feel. so make sure to research the below specifics to learn if this mattress will work for you!
Mattresses that are good at support are usually believed to be firm, but when we talk about support, we're talking about supporting the the body properly no matter the firmness. Most customers have rated this mattress well on its support, but rarely, some customers don't always like the feel.
Most find these mattresses to have good quality edge support, which what customers want who sit on the edge of the mattress or roll away from the middle of the mattress.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
By using a bowling ball to measure firmness, you can find out if a mattress will be evenly supportive of the spine. These mattresses are supportive to most sleepers overall, but you should do additional research if you have a larger or smaller than average body type.
Durability is the single most important criteria for buying a new mattress next to initial comfort. Getting up to a decade of use out of a mattress is well rated in terms of longevity. That said, mattress craftsmanship and sleeper body weight can affect durability as well. Customers give these mattresses good marks for durability against others. However, some folks that have heavier bodies may find a slight decrease in longevity.
Best quality, best customer service. Been working with this company for years! They are a wonderful company who stands behind their product and truly cares about the customer's needs. I reccomend them to everybody!View More Reviews
Bought my mattress from Just Like Home furniture in Tarzana. We purchased a Blue Mist, the manufacturer is Maxim Mattress. WOW! I LOVE MY MATTRESS! Thank you Maxim for such a great nights sleep!
Highly recommended to buying maxim mattresses, lowest price with high quality, after I got this mattress my pain already said goodbye to me!!!!!
Being an Asian, it is common for us to sleep on very firm beds. When I first moved to the US, it was a pain looking for a firm mattress which was affordable at the same time. I went to so many stores looking for a cal king firm mattress with a budget of $800 and it proved to be impossible until I saw the reviews from Yelp on Maxims Mattress.
I went to Maxims Mattress and the showroom is nothing to shout about. It looks like a typical warehouse. Turns out, they manufacture mattresses too. The people at the store were straightforward about their products. They were not pushy. I just had to tell them exactly what I was looking for and my budget and they sold me a cal king firm mattress for $700. It was a brilliant deal. I could check out their stock, pick the mattress and they helped tie up the mattress on my ride. I saved on delivery charges and brought home the mattress that day itself. The whole process of purchasing the mattress and having it tied on my ride took less than 30 minutes.
Since I share the bed with my American boyfriend who likes his bed soft, we compromised and bought a 2 inch memory foam topper from Target and we now agree that it is the best bed ever. It is firm with a slight plush. No more backaches for us. In fact, we get backaches when we sleep on other beds. The next time we move, we are definitely bringing this mattress with us no matter what. Best investment ever.
I also went to Just Like Home furniture since they carry all the Maxim mattress models and they were so helpful and offered the best customer service and pricing!
Worst mattress ever! We purchased a mattress from this place. Both my husband and I have developed back pain. We wake up with pain to the point that hour limbs feel numb. We don't experience back pain when we travel or sleep on another mattress. We have ordered a new mattress after only five months of purchasing a Maxim mattress. I can't wait to receive the new one. I don't recommend this brand at all.
I bought a king size mattress a couple of years ago at first it was good but after about a year it started getting lopsided my wife's started complaining about back pains and I felt the same way so we contacted maxim and they said it was past a year so I had missed the warranty by two weeks I guess my bad but if you pay $800 bucks for a mattress it should last at least 3-4 years I learned my lesson I just went to sit n sleep they gave me 3 years and there just down the street on telegraph rd ask for Johnny he's good people!!!
I purchased a king size mattress from maxim Cony and they send me a California king size which does not fit my bed. The most ridiculous thing is they ask me to pay extra $50 for the second delivery. Which means I am paying extra money for to fix their mistakes. They should have compliment my delivery at all. Poor customer services! Irresponsible for their own mistakes. The delivery guy told me their king = California king!?!Why wouldn't they confirm the measurements before selling but instead they sell / push selling people what they already have in stock and ask the customer to suffer for the delivery cost if there was internal mistake made within themselves. Very poor sales skill and after sale service.
Not convinced of the quality of these mattresses. Wasted over $1,000 on a mattress I purchased directly from the company. It sleeps very hot and the bottom is covered in a fragile, almost paper-like fabric that easily rips. The sewn seams are also fragile and easily ripped. Not sure why one would spend money here when there are plenty of quality, inexpensive online retailers that offer generous return policies.
Oh yes I bought my second mattress at maxim mattress there warehouse in City of Commerce and its My 2nd mattress I get from them I am a native of Los Angeles California leaving now in Montebello and I am overwhelmed with the quality of the mattresses from this company is it it's just one of a kind it's quality. The service I gave him between 1 and 10, they get them at 10 for their honesty me and my wife are really totally over satisfied with their mattress I actually give them a five star and I hope they never go away because I always get my mattress there thanks thank you thanks to Connie it's a family business they do an excellent job thank you very much Jose your loyal customer
Bought a mattress with box springs manufactured by Maxim. At first, I was very satisfied and loved the feel of the mattress (perfect blend of firm but soft). Less than 4 months in and the box spring made so much noise, we sought to have it refunded. The store we purchased from stated the manufacturer was out of business and someone else was taking care of their warranties. I had a lot of issues with the store I purchased from following up on my request for exchange under warranty. Six months later we finally received a new box spring. At this point the mattress started to collapse on both side and the edges bulge out. The new box spring now makes the same noises as the old one. Save your money and steer clear of their products.
We love selling Maxim Mattresses at our business - WEST COAST FURNITURE OUTLET. The quality is superior to all other mattress brands. It is a great feeling knowing that our customers are always pleased with their mattress sets from Maxim. The sales rep Mario is always helpful with any questions we have. The company owner is also super friendly with the customers. We really enjoy doing business with a mattress manufacturer that is run in such an honest and caring manner. Thanks!
You've been warned. Do not buy a Maxim mattress, as you will regret it. Six months and nearly $1,500.00 later, my Maxim mattress was concaved and I was sleeping cocked. Their distributor sent me to them, where their customer service was non existent, zero follow up, and even less help on warranty or repair assistance. Being a small business owner myself focused on customer satisfaction, it disgusts me that they claim this on their website.
Great value for the buck. Better than Kluft/Airloom at fraction of the price. I highly would buy this product anytime I'm in market for another mattress.
A review, long overdue! I purchased a Maxim mattress - Island Bamboo Mattress, 2 years ago and it is still super comfortable! Naturally I came back with my mom, to purchase one for her! Another great quality mattress! Highly recommend!!
I read and watched multiple reviews and was a little skeptical about if this mattress would be a good fit for me. I decided to give it a try, and am so happy with my decision. I have only been able to sleep on it a few nights, so I can't speak to long term satisfaction, but just the feel of the mattress is so unique and comfortable. Every time I pass by my bed now, I can't help but flop on it and lay there for a few minutes. If you are on the fence about trying the mattress, I would say go for it for sure. The only disadvantage that I've noticed so far is that it is near impossible to get out of bed in the morning. I was a few minutes late to work the last few mornings because I did not want to leave my bed. When I was reading all the reviews, I heard that purple fluffs up their review page to make their mattress look better. After trying this mattress, I do not believe that is true. I believe that people genuinely love the product and want to share it with other people. I am not typically one to go out of my way to write a review, but this product is incredible so I felt compelled to do so. Obviously everyone is different so you may not have the same experience I have had, but if you are on the fence and looking for a great mattress, give Purple a try.View More Reviews
It’s been an OK experience. We had a very old mattress so when our Purple mattress arrived and we tested it out the difference was big. The major good thing is that I don’t feel my husband moving and turning around anymore. That’s great! But other than that I can’t really say it’s an “out of this world, amazing mattress”. We were also disappointed cause we bought it just before thanksgiving and we asked them to check if a Black Friday sale was going to take place. No one could inform us anything so we went ahead and bought it with the current sale. We were very disappointed to find out on Thanksgiving Day that the sale at that time was the free Purple Blanket + $100 discount. We called and they couldn’t honor us that so that was a bummer.
I don't know when we purchased this mattress. I think if I were a back sleeper, it might be good, but I sleep on my side. This mattress does not allow enough give at the hips (contrary to pictures showing the spine in perfect alignment). So, my waist is pulled downward causing discomfort and constant shifting and readjusting. I think I slept better on my 20 year old mattress. I actually hope we can return this mattress and get something else. Would hate to have a mattress that we paid hard earned money for and can't stand to sleep on.
Every morning my wife and I would wake up with back ache's from our old mattress. From asking around my chiropractor said many of his clients had tried the purple mattress and really liked it. We decided to purchase one and it is great. Nice and firm. We sleep much better at night and feel great in the mornings now.
terrible experience bought purple products some showed up, some didn't and purple customer service sucks they don't reply and have been no help what so ever. terrible experience.
We have not noticed a difference in back pain just yet but we do notice we don’t want to get out of bed in the morning due to the mattress being so comfy.
A gift for my pregnant daughter. She says PERFECT!!!
Once I got a few adjustments from my chiropractor and slept on my new purple mattress I haven’t had any back problems since. I’m very satisfied with my results.
I love this mattress. It is now my favorite place to be. So comfy and cool all night long.
I’m a big fan of everything but the bed. I love the pillow, the sheets, the driving cushion. 10/10 for those. The mattress is terrible. No matter which way I sleep I’m always waking up with lower back pain and I never realized it was the mattress until I started sleeping in hotels and waking up pain free. It’s 1000% the mattress :(
I am not going to buy purple products again. I got the mattress which was advertised as being long lasting but after a few months it has obviously gotten worn in. It started to feel like crinkled plastic after less than 3 months and I thought about returning it but got lazy about it. We also got the purple mattress cover but the first time the baby wet the bed it went right through the cover. Mattress cover useless. The bed stand commercial shows sumo wrestlers fighting on the platform, but when mine showed up the holes were drilled in the wrong places by about a 1/4” which made it extremely hard to put together and 6 months later the metal bangs from warping and being pushed around by my weight. I spent a lot on this bed and all the great features advertised were hype and lies.
After hauling this heavy thing up two flights of stairs, my back was killing me. I unpacked the mattress, laid down, and within 5 min, my back was feeling great! I have had the Purple mattress now for more than 2 weeks, and I’ve had wonderful sleep and zero back pain. I need a firm mattress for my lower back, but as I’ve gotten older, a traditional firm mattress hurts my shoulders and hips. The Purple supports my back while it forgives my pointy bits. I love it! Can’t recommend it enough!
I am still deciding I fall asleep well but have been waking up with back pain pretty intense not sure if it’s the mattress or what yet
I'd had my old mattress for 15 years, and knew I needed an upgrade. I compared over a dozen different mattresses before going with Purple - the reason I selected Purple was because of its new and unique technology. I'm so glad I went with it - it's so supportive and comfortable. My partner had trouble adjusting (side sleeper), but after about a week, he is well-adjusted and sleeps like a rock! The only issue I had is that the queen-sized mattress is definitely more than 100 lbs, but on the site, it's advertised as being less than 100. It was *extremely* heavy, and difficult to move once it's out of the case, but its level of comfort and support makes up for it all.
Slightly firm but the softness feels luxurious
Every morning my back is sore. The pain is about 8 of 10. An hour after I am up and moving around the pain disapates. I think I may need to add 200 lbs of weights during the day, to take some of the firmness out of the mattress.
I can’t reqlly say more than this bed is amazing. I have had it for two weeks now and sleep better than I ever had before
This is my second bed with purple and both times I have been more than pleased. I’ve never slept on a more comfortable bed or dealt with better customer service!!
I have multiple back issues including stenosis and bulging discs as well as osteoarthritis. By far the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. I look forward to going to bed at night. It is now my haven. From couch potato to purple potato :)
I wish that I could write a review on the item that was suppose to be here last week but I haven’t received it yet. When I emailed purple they took almost a week to get back to me with a ****** nonsense answer that they ran out of material and would need another 1-3 weeks to make my mattress then they would have it shipped. I’m 8 months pregnant and sleeping on an air mattress because they ran out of material. Don’t ever buy from this company. You will be waiting months to receive your product with no communication from the actual company!!!
I love the color purple anyway but this mattress has changed my life! The best sleep I have had in 10 years! I'm getting them for the entire house!
...but so far it’s been great. A mattress is a long term relationship though so what really matters is how I feel after a few months. So far I really do love it, but I was sleeping on garbage before. Trust me, I’ll edit this review later if my opinion changes.
I had high expectations.... you’ve exceeded them.
I gifted this to someone, and they gave it the best possible rating !
Within 2 days of sleeping on this bed my neck and back pain was non-exsistent. I could sleep for 5 hours and wake up refreshed. It's been a month now and I am soo happy with my purchase..
I wanted to support a local Utah company and was so excited to receive this mattress but this was a huge mistake. The quality of this mattress felt like a blow-up mattress that should cost a fraction of the price. For me (skinny guy sleeping on his stomach) it was just uncomfortable and felt weird. To be fair I've heard others say they bought it and like it but for me it was laughable to see what I received for $1200. I also bought the purple mattress protector and it feels like plastic compared to my previous one. Be careful because they won't refund the mattress protectors so I wasted about $70. Buyers beware!
I can’t believe how awesome this bed is! I did lots and lots of research and decided to get the Purple bed and I’m so happy I did! I have never slept better! Super happy with the bed!
First off, the king sized mattress does not fit on our king sized bed frame. It hangs off the foot of the bed and the slats show on the sides. Ridiculous. Never had this issue with any other bed. The waffle pattern feel isn't exactly soft and comfy either. Still we gave it a try to see if we got amazing sleep. It wasn't for us. I thought the returns process would be simple like Casper's. I called and the wait was long so they called back. Then instead of processing the return then and there like Casper did, I had to get an email and submit a return form. And then we'll see how the rest of the process goes. Also note that when you buy the mattress there is usually a free promo item. When you return the mattress, you cannot return the item so you are charged full price. There should be a note when you select the promo item to remind customers of this fact. I would have selected no gift. But I guess by being shady, Purple ensures if you hate the mattress, at least they sold you $130 sheets.
Let me start by saying WOW. I have been sleeping on a Nectar mattress for a while. Every morning I would wake up to lower back pain that would go away after 30 minutes. I blamed this on being 51. The first night sleeping on the Purple I woke with no back pain. My wife had back surgery 2 and 1/2 years ago she says this is a game changer. My only regret is not ordering this sooner and not ordering the pillow. PSA the sheets are also amazing.
Hands down the best mattress. If Purple contacted me and said I needed to pay $300 more to keep the mattress I would rather pay it than give it up. The best investment and purchase I’ve ever made. My partner says the same thing!!
I work 2 jobs, about 55 hours a week, and am on my feet 95% of that time. had lots of trouble sleeping thru the night until the Purple mattress came along. in 3 weeks, i have slept amazing. even slept thru my alarm 4 times!
This thing helped me rest on a whole nother level i will definitely buy another one when this one is of age.
Me and my fiancé absolutely love this mattress. We’ve slept so well since we’ve got it.
Loved our Purple mattress so much we decided to allow our guests to experience this great mattress as well.
This mattress is absolutely life changing! I suffered back pain and haven’t slept well in years! The purple mattres has changed my life. I sleep like a baby and have no back pain at all!
I was definitely skeptical about buying a mattress online, but with the return policy I figured I would try it. Best idea ever! I’m such a light sleeper, and I no longer get woken up when my husband is restless or the cats are jumping all around. Plus, it’s so comfortable!
I got the wrong size mattress and while I appreciate their willingness to do an exchange, the process has been liborious. The product itself is quite nice for the price. Thank you.
I’m a prominent side sleeper and was consistently waking up with shoulder and back pain. This new mattress solved those issues the first night I slept on it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Feel like I'm falling out a bed wake up !with a back ache
This mattress is perfect. My wife and I both used to gravitate toward the center of our old mattress, where it caved in, and wind up fighting about which of us was on the other's side more. This isn't a problem anymore! We like sleeping together again! She even hooked up the TV in the bedroom! We're never leaving this bed. Seriously, it's great. It isn't hot. We can't feel each other move at night, which is good for my wife because I move around more than two pigs fighting under a blanket at night and now I get yelled at a lot less on the whole. Money well spent!
