Puffy Mattress

Puffy Mattress Review

Puffy is an online mattress brand that makes three mattresses: The Puffy Mattress, The Puffy Lux Mattress, and The Puffy Royal Mattress. Each of these offer a highly rated, pressure-relieving feel that is making a splash in the mattress in the box industry. With coil hybrid designs in their Lux and Royal, folks find these mattresses more plush than many other options, which is great for those with a lighter body type. With an aim at providing a balanced, fluffy feel for less than in-store and offering both all-foam and hybrid designs, Puffy is worth a second look!

Puffy's Specifics

Puffy offers three different mattresses to customers: The Puffy Mattress, The Puffy Lux Mattress, and The Puffy Royal Mattress. While the Puffy Mattress offers an all-foam design, the Lux and Royal models include the addition of pocketed coils. With pressure-relieving high profile mattress designs, these mattresses offer a luxurious pillowy feel for a smaller price-tag than the major in-store mattress brands. If you are considering a high profile cushy mattress, Puffy's Lux and Royal mattresses could be the right options.

Quality of Materials

Each of Puffy's mattresses feature high grade memory foams with firmness ratings that are focused on side sleeping and pressure point relief. Over the years, they have enhanced their mattresses with additional layers of cooling technology for those that have trouble with warm sleeping, and the addition of pocket spring hybrid designs (in the Lux and Royal) for those that prefer a traditional, balanced feel versus a memory foam contour. Below we'll go through what's inside each of their offerings so you can learn how their mattresses will work with your body.

First we'll go through what's inside The Original Puffy Mattress:

Top Layer: The cover is Oeko-Tex certified, hypoallergenic, stain resistant and moisture wicking, which makes it perfect for sleeping cool and dry all night long. This cover can also be removed for easy washing.

Comfort Layer 1: The first comfort layer is 2'' of Cooling Cloud™ foam, which features a patent pending foam design that diffuses heat using convection and conduction, with greater airflow than many other foams available. It uses gel infusion with an open cell design that provides 8x more airflow than many other foams.

Comfort Layer 2: 2'' of Climate Comfort™ foam that further regulates temperature and is humidity resistant to bring the same cooling feel all year long. Also, its feel is slightly firmer for a pressure relieving but supportive transition.

Support Layer: The last layer is 6'' of support foam that was designed to be more responsive and provide lasting support to the spine in multiple sleeping positions.

Next, we'll go through what's inside The Puffy Lux Mattress, which comes in a hybrid version with pocket coils:

Top Layer: The Puffy Lux cover is made of the same Oeko-Tex certified, hypoallergenic, stain resistant and moisture wicking fabric that sleeps cool and dry throughout the night. The cover can be zipped off and easily cleaned.

Comfort Layer 1: The first comfort layer is 1.5'' of Cooling Cloud™ foam, which features a patent pending foam design that has more airflow than many other foams.

Comfort Layer 2: 1.5'' of Plush Dual Cloud foam will further contour and adapt to the body's curves to provide a 'cloud like' feel that soothes the muscles and joints.

Comfort Layer 3: 2'' of Climate Comfort™ foam adds a gentle, but supportive transition while also continuing to regulate temperature and resist humidity.

Support Layer: The last layer features 7'' of encased pocketed coils that adapt to the curves of the body independently. This tension provides more adaptive support to keep pressure points relieved without leading to a 'stuck' feeling.

Next, we'll go through what's inside The Puffy Royal Mattress, which comes in a hybrid version with pocket coils:

Top Layer: The Puffy Royal mattress comes with the same high end washable cover that is found in the Puffy and Puffy Lux.

Comfort Layer 1: The first comfort layer is a 1.5'' cooling layer with superior pressure point relief and cooling bead technology that will keep things cool on the surface.

Comfort Layer 2: Below that, there is even more pressure point relief in a 1.5'' layer of reflexive memory foam.

Comfort Layer 3: 2'' of Climate Comfort™ foam helps to keep things cool by preventing heat from getting trapped inside the mattress.

Comfort Layer 4: 2'' of Cloud Air Technology foam provides 5 zones of support, ensuring that the head, neck, shoulders, back, and legs receive the optimal cushion and body support.

Support Layer: A 7'' layer of encased pocket springs independently adapt to the body to cradle the spine and cut down on motion disturbance while supporting the soft, contouring layers above.

Overall Comfort

Puffy has gone through multiple design iterations with their mattresses, launching cooling and zoned support enhancements that customers have rated highly and more recently making the shift to hybrid options in their higher end offerings. At a universal comfort medium-firmness level that some customers describe as softer, Puffy's mattresses will work best for slimmer and average sized sleepers who are looking for enhanced pressure relief.


The Puffy Mattress is medium - medium-firm in their feel to average sized sleepers. The Puffy Lux provides a somewhat softer feel ideal for side sleepers that want all the benefits of memory foam without the negatives. Stomach sleepers may enjoy the Original Puffy mattress more for having less contour, while the thicker options are more contouring and pressure relieving and therefore suited more to side sleepers looking for a high level of adaptive pressure relief. Overall, Puffy reviewers are about 1.3x likelier to mention a positive side sleeping experience* versus the average comparable mattress.

Back Pain Relief

For those that are average sized, there is a good amount of support and spinal alignment that can lead to back pain relief. Our review analysis shows that Puffy reviewers are 3x likelier to mention pain relief versus the average comparable mattress.


These mattresses have multiple layers of cooling and airy foam that Puffy has put a lot of emphasis on developing. These layers should keep most sleepers cool throughout the night.

Who Are Puffy Mattresses Right For?

These mattresses are really comfortable for most average-sized sleepers, and particularly great for side sleepers looking for a mattress design focused on flexible pressure relief.


No more back pain

No bounce. Very comfortable. Had some minor back pain with the old mattress and now it's gone!

Frequently Asked Questions About Puffy

Is the Puffy mattress worth it?

Side sleepers report great experiences overall with the Puffy mattress and its value versus name brands like Tempur-Pedic. While side sleepers are 1.3x likelier to mention a positive experience with Puffy versus the average mattress, those that are looking for more firmness may desire something with more support.

Does Puffy mattress need a box spring?

No. Actually Puffy mattress does best on a solid foundation, such as those with slats that are less than 5 inches apart. The slight elasticity of box springs may cause a lack of support.

How long do Puffy mattresses last?

On average, all foam mattresses last 7 - 10 years with firmer varieties having longer average life spans. Due to the luxurious softness of Puffy mattresses, they may last around 7 years, but this will depend on each sleeper's body type and duration spent on the mattress.

Is Puffy Mattress toxic?

The Puffy mattress features an Oeko-Tex® certified cover and CertiPUR-US® certified foams, which is an emissions standard for low VOC (volatile organic compounds) foam. Those with severe chemical sensitivities may require something with additional certification.

Which Puffy mattress is best?

The Puffy Lux mattress is the most popular Puffy mattress, which provides increased luxurious pressure point relief over the original Puffy mattress. Customers report that the hybrid version provides better balanced support.
