Introduction

While they may be one of the newer brands on the market when it comes to mattresses, Puffy has already built a reputation for making a mattress that provides exceptional comfort and body conforming, making it feel like you’re sleeping on top of a cloud. They currently offer two mattress options; the Puffy and the Puffy Lux. This review is focusing on the Puffy Lux. 

Our testers have been working hard to put the mattress through its paces and the Puffy Lux scored highly across the board. It’s definitely been a popular choice for our team.

In a nutshell

What you need to look out for

Highlights

The Puffy Lux does a great job of keeping motion disturbance to a minimum,  which means you’re less likely to get disturbed by any movement during the night. The almost non-existent noise level, combined with this superior motion isolation makes this a great option for couples or light sleepers. 

The layers of memory foam also make this a perfect choice for people who like to feel enveloped by their mattress. The level of body conforming helps you to feel like you’re sleeping “in” rather than “on” this mattress.

In summary

Our in-house testing team was all big fans of the Puffy Lux mattress, and it scored well across all of our testing parameters. It did especially well when it came to pain relief, comfort, and when it came to customer service and warranty length.The only areas it fell short in were durability and front sleeping. As the foam isn’t as dense as other brands, we could see that it wouldn’t last as long for those of heavier builds if they were using it regularly as the foam would be less likely to stand up to such rigorous use.

Hands on review

What's it made from

The Puffy Lux is made up of four foam layers, providing a medium-firm base to get a great night’s sleep on.

Top Layer

Cooling Cloud Foam: First, you have a layer of cooling cloud foam, designed to promote airflow and disperse heat away from your body.

2nd Layer

Body Adapting Dual Cloud Foam: Exclusive to their Lux model, this added layer of foam perfectly conforms to your body shape and supporting pressure points to make sure you have the best night’s sleep possible.

3rd Layer

Climate Comfort Foam: The next foam layer has been constructed with their new ClimateComfort technology to further ensure you don’t overheat during the night.

4th Layer

Firm Core Support Foam: Finally, there is the main support layer at the base of the mattress. This works to keep you supported throughout the night, even when you change positions.

Mattress Cover

The cover on the Puffy Lux is stain-resistant, soft and breathable, providing a comfortable surface to sleep on. The cover can also be easily zipped off and machine washed to keep it in perfect condition for longer.

Comfort & firmness

Thanks to the extra layer of foam, the Puffy Lux is more of a medium-firm than its standard counterpart. But, this doesn’t mean you lose that trademark Puffy softness. It still manages to provide that memory foam feel that envelops your body while providing an extra modicum of support.

Pain relief and support

Pain-Relief-and-Support-Right-Softness

Their built-in enhanced spinal alignment and pressure point relief makes this a great choice for sufferers of back and joint pain. It works to keep you in alignment and supported throughout the night, for front, back, and side sleepers.

Side sleepers

The best position for the Puffy lux mattress is hands-down side sleeping. The foam layers are able to conform to your body perfectly, ensuring that your hips sink lower than your shoulders and your spine stays in alignment.

Sinkage and edge support

Surprisingly for a memory foam mattress, the edge support on the Puffy Lux mattress is pretty effective. It scored above average in our in-house testing, so you won’t feel as though you’ll fall off the sides of the bed when sleeping along the edge. This is important to consider if you’ll be sharing the bed with a partner. 

When it comes to sinkage, the Puffy really excels. This is what the brand is known for, so it’s not surprising you feel the mattress sinking as soon as you put pressure on it. The foam conforms closely to your body while you sleep, making for a luxurious and comfortable night’s sleep all round.

Heat retention

Memory foam mattresses are notorious for being hot to sleep on as they store your body heat in the foam layers in order to conform to your shape. But, thanks to the cooling technology built into the Puffy Lux, they manage to avoid the bulk of this heat retention. The improved breathability meant that this scored better than most memory foam mattresses when it came to temperature neutrality.

Unboxing

The Puffy Lux is delivered rolled up and in a box, so when you go to set it up you will have to wait a few hours for it to fully expand before you can use it. During this period, there will potentially be some off-gassing as it begins to expand. This smell shouldn’t last too long and will dissipate just fine with an open window.

Intimacy

When it comes to sex, this mattress is less responsive than other memory foam mattresses which can make it less than optimal in this area. But, the reduced noise levels can be a big plus.

Bed frame compatibility

The Puffy Lux mattress has been designed to work with all bed frames included slatted frames, flat frames, box springs, adjustable frames, and foundations. They even have their own adjustable and foundation frames that have been specifically designed with the Puffy mattress in mind.

Is this mattress right for you?

The Puffy Lux is a great mattress for multiple sleepers – especially lighter builds and side sleepers. Anyone who enjoys the traditional memory foam feel will be right at home with a Puffy Lux, the foam layers closely conform to your body to give you that luxurious sinking feeling you love. 

If you’re a heavier individual, then they softer foam in the Puffy Lux makes this a less-than-optimal choice for you. While you will still find a comfortable night’s sleep on top of it, you’ll find that it won’t be as durable or long-lasting than other brands.

In conclusion

In conclusion, Puffy has built on and improved their standard offering with the Lux model. The extra layer of foam makes a huge difference, transforming their mattress into an even better version of itself.
