Puffy Lux Mattress Review

The Puffy Lux mattress is a hybrid mattress with gel-infused foam and polyester cover. In this review section, we’ll see everything about its construction, general feel, warranty coverage, and more.

Overall Impressions

Puffy Mattress Review: Luxury Bed at a Fair Price (Summer 2022)Puffy Lux ships, zipped in a box, free to your door via FedEx within two to five business days. You only need to grab a buddy to unwrap it and set it up on your frame or foundation. Once out of the box and the plastic wrap, it may take a while for complete swelling. It will regain most of its shape immediately. But it may take up to 72 hours for your mattress to take full shape after it is unpacked. The initial odor of some chemicals in the manufacturing process may be noticeable. However, the Lux should be air-conditioned in a well-ventilated area to quickly dissipate the odor.

You will feel the softness and luxury of the bed as you sink into its plush layers. The softer side feels more like a hug. Your body may get encapsulated by the materials, which can cause your body to heat up. However, Lux has cooling functions to maintain temperature neutrality.

Each package contains 1.5 inches of Cool Cloud memory foam. A cooling gel is added to this layer to draw heat away from your body and promote cooler sleep.

With the second layer, there is 1.5 inches of Body-Adapting Dual Cloud foam. This foam conforms to the contours of your body to provide personalized pressure relief.

The third layer of Cloud Climate foam measures 2 inches. This foam is a breathable transition memory foam that can provide high-pressure relief and high-temperature resistance.

The fourth layer is composed of 7-inch Puffy Firm Core support foam. This layer provides solid support all over the bed.

As a soft mattress, the Puffy Lux might not be the best mattress for stomach sleepers. Thick layers of foam made from Puffy cloud foams won’t provide the support structure that stomach sleepers will need to stay balanced in addition to the mattress. If the hips of stomach sleepers sink in and bend the spine, it can cause back pain or neck pain.

The Puffy Lux is a great mattress for side sleepers, thanks to soft contour foams that surround their shoulders and buttocks. A precise contour will relieve the pressure, but the side sleeper could sink under the bottom layer and reduce insufficient pressure.

While the Puffy Lux can accommodate multiple sleeping spots and loads, it can be difficult to change positions while sleeping on the mattress. For people who spend the vast majority of the night in places other than their side, it may be worth looking at a firmer mattress or a hybrid design that favors a simple change of position.

Firmness

Puffy Mattress Review: Luxury Bed at a Fair Price (Summer 2022)In terms of firmness, we put the Puffy at about 6½ out of 10. The firmness is a bit above medium. There are some very plush layers on top and more supportive layers beneath. It’s easy to press your hand in but it gets firmer the further down you press, sit, or lay on it.

It kind of has a slow-moving memory foam feel than a classic memory foam feel. But it’s not the slowest memory foam on the market.

The Lux version of Original Puffy features a single layer of body adapting cloud foam. This layer is designed to provide balanced support and better alignment of the spine.

Softer beds may not provide the support the spine needs to stay neutral. The Lux bed is very soft. However, the Lux also includes a matching layer and a firmer base to provide sufficient pushing support for your spine.

If you are looking for extra support, the Original Puffy is a good choice.

Motion Transfer

Couples or those who sleep with their children or pets should be extra careful with how a mattress interrupts motion and prevents it from moving to another side of the mattress.

If you sleep with a partner, you want to think about motion transfer. You’re lying down on one side of the mattress and your partner moves around on the other side; whether you are going to feel that motion or not depends on the motion transfer of your mattress.

Foam mattresses have always performed well in this regard, which is why the Puffy Lux mattress also performs well. The layers of foam will absorb motion between spouses without disturbing another sleeper. The Puffy Lux has some thick memory foam absorbing a lot of the motion. If you lay down on one side of the mattress and your partner got in and out of bed on the other side, moved around, or switched position, you wouldn’t feel too many of their movements transferred to your side of the mattress.

So, overall the Puffy Lux handles motion transfer very well.   Same cannot however be said of other models such as the Original Puffy mattress.

However, repositioning can be difficult for some people with mobility issues. They may have difficulty repositioning themselves due to the slow response of the comfort layers and the deep hug the mattress gives you.

Edge Support

Puffy Mattress Review: Luxury Bed at a Fair Price (Summer 2022)For a full foam mattress, Puffy Lux does a fantastic job of encouraging any weight through the edges of the mattress. Traditionally, memory foam mattresses do a poor job in this regard. However, the Puffy Lux has thick support layers that don’t compress under heavy weight. Edge support is important when you are sharing a mattress and will need to use the entire surface of the mattress.

Temperature Regulation

Speaking of temperature regulation, cooling and breathability, if you want more temperature regulation and breathability, go with this hybrid mattress. It has more room for airflow with the coils. With the gel infusions, it’s going to trap a little bit of heat. It might make you overheat while you’re sleeping.

Pressure Relief

Pressure relief is a good feature to consider if you suffer from pain or stiffness in your joints and muscles. Firming a mattress too much or having a too firm mattress can put pressure on your natural curves, like sleeping on hard rock. Puffy Lux Foam is designed to fit your body.

You will feel the foams conform to the heavier areas such as the hips and shoulders, relieving the pressure. This bed is designed to provide that comforting, rocking feeling that so many people love.Puffy Mattress Review: Luxury Bed at a Fair Price (Summer 2022)

Starting from the back, you’ll have a very good balance of comfort and support. Your hip will sink in the top foam layers but not too far. It offers good lumbar support and good contouring from the top foam layers. It’s very nice for back sleeping. Moving to the side, you will feel some pressure on your shoulders and hips.

We think lighter people and medium-weight people should feel better pressure relief.

Bounce

The Lux foam does not bounce and may take some time to react. While this is a great option for people who want a traditional memory foam experience, combination sleepers may feel limited in their movements. The company’s mattress topper, which promises a more floating experience for those with limited mobility, can be added to the bed to reduce the feeling of being stuck.

Construction

The mattress is said to make you feel as if you were sleeping on a cloud. So, what’s the secret to this? What’s the mattress made of?

Materials

The Puffy Mattress comes in two versions – all-foam and the hybrid. The all-foam Lux mattress is 12 inches thick. You’ll have a thin breathable cover that is very soft.

The top foam is a slow-moving memory foam. It has a kind of classic memory foam feel that pops back into place. It’s also infused with gel to help with cooling and breathability. Below that, another plush layer also has that slow-moving memory foam. This is what sets us apart from the original Puffy mattress. Below that, you’re going to have a firmer transition layer. It has more of a bouncy responsive feel. It also has cooling components to help with temperature regulation and with overall breathability and cooling. Finally, on the bottom, you have a base support foam. The total height of the mattress is 12 inches.

Layers

Puffy Mattress Review: Luxury Bed at a Fair Price (Summer 2022)Puffy Lux consists of four layers of polyurethane which are all licensed from CertiPUR-US, without ozone depletion, heavy metals, or formaldehyde.

  • The cover: The Puffy Lux mattress is covered with a breathable polyester fabric. More on that soon!
  • First layer: 4cm Polyurethane Foam: This is infused with cooling at the top of the mattress and there’s a lighter foam for air to circulate. The gel will absorb heat to keep you cool in the summer and will keep it through the winter to keep you comfortable. Plus, it’s tender enough to accommodate the body in multiple sleeping positions.
  • Second layer: An Exclusive 4cm Square Foam: This transitional covering that adapts to the curves of the body, so there is absolutely no pressure on your shoulders, hips, and thighs. It is a proprietary foam used only in the Puffy Lux mattress. It is designed to conform and repel its weight, in equal amounts. It should relieve the pressure without making you feel like the mattress is consuming you.
  • Third Layer: 5cm Climate Comfort™ Memory Foam: This is added to create a constant temperature during the evening. Limiting these changes should result in a more consistent night’s sleep.
  • Fourth Layer: 18cm Support Foam: The fourth layer is a high-density foam that holds everything together making it a durable choice. Puffy Lux says this layer has the durability and strength to work on any type of base or foundation.

Cover

The first feature of the Puffy Lux is its polyester cover. It should be soft and breathable. The cover, which features a gray diamond pattern and white clouds, can be easily removed for machine washing. This cover has been improved and is now stain-resistant.

Certifications

Made in the USA, the Puffy Lux is a well-built and approved mattress. CertiPUR-certified In the USA, the foams in this bed are free from lead and formaldehyde.

It also has the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification. What this means is that the product has passed numerous tests to ensure that it does not contain hazardous amounts of heavy metals or other substances.

Warranty and Sleep Trial

The Puffy Lux includes a 101-night sleep trial. During this period, if you don’t like the Puffy Lux, you can return it free of charge for a full refund. The organization strongly recommends that you try it for at least 30 days before choosing, but they need you to sleep on it for at least 14 days before starting to initiate a return.

The Puffy Lux mattress also comes with a lifetime warranty. Remember that a fantastic mattress should last between 7-10 years. Puffy will replace or repair the defect during the life of the mattress with the first owner. However, this is based on the condition that the mattress has been used correctly and installed on the correct base.

Acceptable defects can be a manufacturer defect of the zipper or cover, which does not come as a result of improper use. The warranty does not cover the mattress when it has been abused, burned, or damaged by misuse. Also, it does not cover ordinary wear and tear.

As for returned mattresses, Puffy is doing something here. It specifies that it will give returned and fixed mattresses to children in need. In addition, their customer support takes calls during long office hours throughout the week and regular office hours on weekends.

Key Features

There’s a lot to talk about concerning the features of the mattress. But these are the key features which would be enough to make you purchase it or not.

  • Made of hybrid materials

The mattress features several layers of foams, support coils, and gel infusion. Also, the cover material is made of polyester fabric that can be removed and washed.

  • Bed in a box

The product is shipped rolled and boxed right to your doorstep. This cuts down on shipping costs and makes it easier to set up.

  • Cooling features

Many features of this mattress are intended to regulate temperature. The Cool Cloud layer sits under the breathable cover and is infused with a cooling gel. Climate Comfort was created to resist temperature fluctuations and promote a constant feeling of freshness all year round.

  • Great motion isolation

Puffy Mattress Review: Luxury Bed at a Fair Price (Summer 2022)Motion transfer should be minimal as the memory foam absorbs movement and prevents it from spreading throughout the bed. It’s a great way to reduce disturbance from pets or restless partners. The Puffy Lux has some thick memory foam absorbing a lot of the motion. If you lay down on one side of the mattress and your partner gets in and out of bed on the other side, moved around, or switched position, you wouldn’t feel too many of their movements transferred to your side of the mattress. This is because the Puffy Lux handles motion transfer very well.

  • Compatible adjustable base

The Lux can be used on any flat surface, and it will also work on adjustable frames or the floor. Puffy offers a wide range of foundations, adjustable frames, and slatted bases on their website.

  • Charitable Donations

For every 10 social media posts featuring customers jumping on their Puffy beds, the company will donate a mattress to a child in need. They will also recycle or donate any products that have been returned. It also donates beds to the homeless Trusted Source Puffy Mattress Donation Pledges Beds to Domestic Violence Shelter in Honor of Women’s Day | Business Wire To honor female domestic abuse survivors in light of Women’s Day, the Puffy Mattress Donation has donated mattresses and pillows to Laura’s House. www.businesswire.com .

Who Should Get This Mattress?

People who like classic memory foam experiences but without the downsides of overheating and off-gassing smell should get this mattress. The classic memory foam experience should include a deep hug and body contouring. The mattress contains a cooling gel infused into it to help reduce heat. The Lux has extra layers of comfort, plush covers, and enhanced cooling capabilities.

The mattress would also be ideal for people who need more pressure relief. Two layers of comfort and a plush cover should provide excellent pressure relief. Foams can be pushed back or squeezed depending on your body weight to provide you with personalized comfort.

This luxury Puffy mattress is a dream for every sleeper. It offers enhanced pressure relief and additional layers of comfort. This is what it offers for different types of sleepers:

  • Side sleepers: Side sleepers should feel more pressure relief as the adaptive foam compresses under heavier areas like the hips and shoulders. For maximum comfort, contouring should keep your spine neutral.
  • Back sleepers: The conformal foam layers provide support to most back sleepers and should give them lumbar support. Heavy sleepers may find that they sink too far through the layers of foam, which can result in an uneven spine.
  • Belly Sleepers: While this mattress is supposed to be moderately soft, stomach sleepers may find it supportive enough to keep their spine from becoming misaligned due to the individual support and recoil provided by the proprietary foams. For those who prefer a firmer feel, the original Puffy mattress may be a better choice.
  • Couples: While couples don’t have to worry about getting each other up because of the bed’s movement isolation qualities, some couples may not find the flexibility they are looking for. It does not provide reinforced edge support and has limited rebound. The Lux is a good choice if you and your partner want a luxurious memory foam feel.
  • The Big Sleepers: According to the company, this model can support weights of up to 350 pounds or 159 kg per side. While this model should be able to accommodate heavier sleepers, the plush foam may not provide enough support to keep sleepers from sinking. People with severe weight restrictions may want to consider options designed specifically for taller people.
  • Light sleepers: Lux is a great option for lightweight people who prefer soft beds. These layers will conform to the body, allowing pressure relief and support without causing recoil.
PROS CONS
  • Has cooling properties
  • The cover can be machine-washed
  • Made of several foams for the best pressure relief
  • Resist humidity
  • Fair enough motion transfer
  • It’s not bouncy
  • Might not be the best for stomach sleepers

Brief Comparison

The Puffy mattresses come in an all-foam version and hybrid versions, talking about the Puffy Lux and Royal mattresses. The hybrid versions are going to be more supportive than the all-foam version. Here are individual reviews of the other two mattresses.

Puffy Mattress

Puffy Mattress Review: Luxury Bed at a Fair Price (Summer 2022)The Original, Puffy’s first mattress on the internet is a 10 inches thick bed-in-a-box that offers a simple yet comfortable style. Its core is made of 100% memory foam. It stands out for its technology-driven foams, which provide superior cooling and pressure-relieving properties. You can also get support and comfort for almost any type of sleeper.

The Puffy Mattress is a mid-firm universal mattress that will fit most people. The Puffy mattress is available in a range of sizes, from 6 to 8 inches. This 3-layer mattress has foams that are slightly flexible and adapt to your body.

Who Should Get It?

We recommend the Puffy mattress for those who sleep on their stomachs. This Puffy bed is the firmest of the three. However, it does provide enough softness to allow your hips to sink in enough. A supportive, soft and smooth mattress is ideal for these types of sleepers. To maintain a neutral spine, a mattress should be firm but not too soft. This is precisely what the Puffy mattress does.

The mattress is also ideal for hot sleepers. Puffy mattresses are unique because their memory foam mattress is cooler. You will get the coolest gel memory foam mattress on the internet no matter which Puffy option you choose.

However, for warmer sleepers, we prefer the Puffy Royal and the Original Puffy. Here’s why. The Original Puffy not only has key cooling technology, but it is also the firmest mattress. This means you’ll sink less into the foams and feel more at the top, allowing natural air circulation around your body. Each layer of Puffy has a different way of removing heat or neutralizing it. You will get a good night’s sleep all night long.

Pros

  • Perfect for light sleepers
  • Good pressure relief
  • Comes with a lifetime warranty

Cons

  • Could be thicker
  • May be too soft for some sleepers

Puffy Royal Mattress

Puffy Mattress Review: Luxury Bed at a Fair Price (Summer 2022)A cloud sleep experience is what most people find to be the best way to feel comfortable. Others would disagree. The Puffy Royal is the best option for comfortable and cool night sleep. This mattress is super thick – 14 inches thick to be precise, with 5 layers of incredible comfort.

Puffy Royal is more comfortable and allows you to sink deeper. It has layers with channels that increase airflow. A new top layer with gel beads increases the freshness of the mattress. These features are ideal for a memory foam bed.

You’ll feel like you’re weightless thanks to the innovative Puffy Royal pressure relief system. The Puffy Royal is also the softest option, with a slightly lower average firmness with an average plush feel.

This mattress is slightly softer than the Lux, which ranges from medium firmness to medium plush.

Who Should Get It?

This mattress is ideal for all types of sleepers. It’s especially good for back and side sleepers who want a better sleep experience. It features a soft memory foam that has some of the traditional slow-motion feel, but overall the mattress is much puffier and looks like a cloud.

On the sleeping side, typical weight people who weigh less than 200 pounds should find the Puffy Royal all-foam mattress as a fantastic fit. The many layers of foam in the Puffy Royal should provide all the pressure relief they need. They may even feel that the zoned polyfoam layer helps fill in the space between their rib cage and buttocks.

The Puffy Royal will most likely be too soft for regular weight stomach sleepers, and they may feel their buttocks sinking too far from the mattress.

The Puffy Royal full foam mattress will not work well for stricter back, side, or stomach sleepers. They will not feel sufficient support when they are behind their stomach and asleep. On the sleep side, they’ll need more help to keep them in proper neutral alignment.

People who demand a mattress for heavy people will prefer the hybrid version of their Puffy Royal, as it should give them better support in all three places.

Lightweight people should receive enough comfort and support when they sleep on the mattress. Some lighter stomach sleepers can get enough support on the Puffy Royal, but many will want to find something a little more supportive.

The Puffy Royal is a luxury full foam mattress that should be a great alternative for adults, children, and light teens.

Pros

  • Has gel infusions that cool the body
  • Thicker than the Original and the Lux
  • Ideal for back and side sleepers

Cons

  • May be too unsupportive for stomach sleepers

Conclusion

Puffy thinks you should sleep on soft, fluffy clouds like an angel. To make their Puffy beds more luxurious, the company added layers of cooling and comfort to them. This will ensure that clients feel a warm hug and pressure relief.

It’s a good match for back sleepers as it has a good balance of comfort and supports your hips. It also has good contouring as well so it’s very nice for back sleeping.

It’s also ideal for light and medium weight side sleepers. You’re not going to sink in so far in this mattress as a heavier person might. You’re going to feel very nice pressure relief on your shoulders and your hips and last but not least if you like more of that slow-moving memory foam feel, the Puffy Lux is definitely for you. It has two layers right on top that have more of that classic memory foam feel. So, as you lie in the Puffy Lux, you slowly sink into the mattress.

As we have seen in the Puffy mattress review, this bed is a great investment because of its quality materials and responsive design.
