Here's What Canadians Say About Douglas

Douglas has over 11,000 5-star reviews from people who love their mattress.

So Good!

We bought the Purple mattress because of the hype, but [returned it] because it was too soft. The Douglas was our next choice and we are both very happy it. We sleep very well in it. I would recommend this bed.

Should Have Bought This Years Ago!

Amazing mattress! I wake up with no pain and I just love it! I am so impressed with the cushiony softness but yet still firm. I recommend this mattress to anyone looking for a top quality solution to back and shoulder pain.

Excellent Quality Mattress for a Great Price

First time purchasing a Douglas mattress and I'm very impressed. Good quality mattress and a great price. I have zero complaints regarding my sleep since purchasing this mattress! Thank you Douglas!

So Great

We chose [Douglas] because of the reviews. It was Canadian-made....and the price was significantly lower than the competitors.

Two Thumbs Up

We have had our Douglas mattress for one week and already notice the difference in sleep patterns. I wake up with little to no back pain anymore. Two thumbs up on the Douglas mattress.

Take the Plunge, You Won’t Regret It!

I couldn't be happier. It gives where it needs to and supports where it should. I don't find any issues with temperature, and I like to sleep cool. I strongly recommend the mattress...on top of everything, the price is unbeatable!

Very Satisfied Customer

I really like my new Douglas Mattress. I have no regrets buying it. Great price and quality, fast delivery and easy to set up. I sleep better and wake up feeling rested. It's probably the most comfortable mattress I've ever owned. Very soft yet supportive. Highly recommend.

Super Comfortable!

Can say without a doubt it's the most comfortable mattress I've ever had and love the fact it's made by Canadians for Canadians!

We Love This Mattress!

I LOVE that you don't get tossed around when your partner/pet moves! My husband could be doing cartwheels and I wouldn't know it.

Best Bed Ever!

I love that it's Canadian-made, eco-friendly, competitive in price, shipped free, and find the warranty & return policy great. I tend to overheat easily & that's not an issue with the Douglas. I couldn't be happier with my bed. Thanks, Douglas!

5 Reasons to Choose Douglas Instead of Purple

Purple Doesn’t Offer Refunds on Opened Products, but Douglas Does.

Imagine spending over $3,000 on a mattress, discovering you're not a fan, and then you can't get your money back. That's the risk you run when you buy from

Purple will only allow you to exchange your purchase for more Purple products. And with their least expensive queen-size mattress selling for more than $3,300 CAD, you might end up spending even more on an upgrade during the exchange process instead of just getting your money back. If you don't care for Purple's GelFlex Grid®, chances are you won't like the other Purple mattresses much, either.

You can rest easy with Douglas. A queen-size mattress costs $799, and you get 365 nights to try it out. If you think it's not for you, that's no problem. Douglas will give you your money back, pick up your mattress, and donate it to a local charity when possible.

Not that you'll want to return your Douglas – it's fine-tuned for all body types and sleep styles.

"I was very hesitant to purchase a mattress online but with the return policy, I said I have nothing to lose. I have had it for a month now and my husband and I love it. We are both sleeping better. It doesn’t get hot like other foam mattresses. So happy I took the chance and tried it. Thank you, Douglas Team!"

Purple Has a “Poor” Rating On Trustpilot, but Canadians Can Count on Douglas.

What do past customers have to say about Purple? Purple has a less-than-stellar reputation score (2.5/5) on consumer review sites like See Purple's Profile.

Douglas, on the other hand, has earned the approval of Canadian consumers again and again. With a score of 4.8/5 on Trustpilot, you can feel safe shopping with Douglas. See Douglas' Profile.

"I chose Douglas because they offered the best price and had great reviews. When the mattress arrived, I was not disappointed. This is hands down the comfiest mattress I've ever slept on. I've been sleeping better than ever. The mattress seems like fantastic quality and as someone who cares about where their products are made, I'm happy to rep the brand knowing they're made in Canada. Thanks, Douglas!"

Douglas Has the Firmness & Edge Support That Canadians Love.

We commissioned third-party engineers to test Douglas and Purple mattresses on qualities that are important to Canadian sleepers.

Douglas has a medium-firm feel that's popular with Canadians and earned a 6.6/10 for firmness. Purple is much softer, scoring 2.9/10 on the firmness test. That's quite a bit softer than the "medium" feel Purple claims on its website, and means larger individuals are likely to sink quite deep into the mattress.

Douglas outscored Purple in edge support, too. Douglas got an edge support rating of 7.3/10, so you can confidently use the full surface area of your bed without sinking in too deep or rolling off the side. Purple only scored 2.3/10 for edge support. That means you might have a difficult time getting out of bed with a Purple mattress, especially if you already suffer from hip, back, or joint pain.

A woman sleeps on her side on the Douglas Original mattress, perfectly contoured to her body shape.

*Firmness ratings: Purple Plus (2.9/10) and Douglas Original (6.6/10); Edge Support ratings: Purple Plus (2.3/10) and Douglas Original (7.3/10), based on testing by third-party engineers commissioned by, and covered in full detail in this APEGA-stamped report.

"We absolutely love this mattress! It's the perfect combination of firm and soft, and the extra edge support of this mattress compared to other brands definitely shows...there is never a feeling of falling off when you are near the edge of the mattress. We could not be happier with our purchase!"

Douglas Puts Canadians First. Purple Saves Its Best Offers for the USA.

Douglas is designed exclusively for the needs of Canadian sleepers. Each Douglas mattress uses Canadian-sourced materials and is crafted in Canadian factories to top national quality standards.

Purple's least expensive queen-size mattress available in Canada is the Purple Plus, which sells for $3,349 CAD. In the United States, it sells for nearly half that price. Purple has two mattresses that are less expensive than that but they are only available to American shoppers. Looking for a Twin or California King size mattress? Purple only sells those in the States, too. (Sorry, Canada!)

"Douglas provides quality, made-in-Canada products – I would recommend this bed to everyone I know. I have never slept this well! Thank you, Douglas, kudos to your team for an A+ product."
