Top Queen Size Mattress
Puffy is among the more preferred foam mattresses available online. It was first popularized by the Ellen Show back in 2017 and has since really taken off. Puffy is a cost effective, all-foam mattress that’s preferred for a reason. We believe the Puffy mattress is a good choice for the majority of people if you weigh under 230 lbs—- we rate a medium on our soft-to-firm scale.
Puffy is the new mattress on the block, which apparently mimics the feeling of sleeping on a cloud. Puffy has 2 high-end brands, the Puffy Lux and the Puffy Royal, along with the flagship model, The Puffy. In this evaluation we will take a look at all 3.

The medium-firm nature of the Puffy makes it fantastic for giving lots of pressure alleviation without compromising support. The top comfort layer cradles the body, while thick polyfoam prevents sleepers from getting stuck in the foam layers. As a result of this support foam, we rank the Puffy at a 6/10 on our firmness scale. On our scale, a one is the softest mattress possible and a 10 is the firmest.
Medium-firm mattresses can accommodate the widest range of sleeping positions. They’re an excellent fit for back sleepers who do not mind a little added “hug” from their mattress, and they’re typically soft enough to cushion side sleepers’ pressure points. True medium-firm mattresses (those with a firmness level of 6/10) typically aren’t firm enough to support stomach sleepers, so we don’t believe the Puffy is a great fit for that sleeping position.
The Puffy is an all-foam mattress with 3 layers dedicated to giving remarkable pressure relief and a “cloud-like” sleeping experience. With softer upper layers that cradle around the body and a thick polyfoam base layer, sleepers should experience a soft cloud-like feel without getting “stuck” in the mattress.
Cover: The cover consists of basic polyester that has some stretch throughout the surface. It’s a thinner cover, so it shouldn’t feel warm to the touch.
Layer # 1: Cooling Cloud Foam: The top layer of the Puffy is made of 2 ″ of Cooling Cloud foam with gel infusions. This layer is meant to draw warmth away from your body and promote airflow, so you do not get too hot. It’s also constructed to cradle your body, so you do not feel undue pressure on your curvier body parts like hips or shoulders.
Layer # 2: Climate-Adaptive Foam: This layer is made from 2 ″ of Climate-Adaptive Foam intended to help add consistency to heat regulation. It includes advanced temperature and humidity-resistance materials to limit heat fluctuations throughout the night.
Layer # 3: Support Layer: Next comes the 6 ″ Firm Core foam support layer, which adds structure and durability to the mattress.
The Puffy vs Puffy Lux
At 12 inches high, the Puffy Lux is visibly thicker than the company’s flagship model. This is due to the Lux’s added comfort layering– an extra inch of memory foam, and two 1.5-inch polyfoam layers, one temperature-resistant, as opposed to one 2-inch layer– as well as its 7-inch high-density polyfoam support core.
On the whole, the Lux is very similar to the original Puffy. Both share similar qualities, such as impressive pressure alleviation. However, the Lux improves on the Puffy by offering a thicker comfort layer that contours more deeply and provides added support.
Instead of sinking so far into the bed, sleepers are offered upgraded support coupled with the outstanding pressure relief Puffy is known for. This is particularly beneficial for heavier sleepers, who might find they sink through the original Puffy’s comfort layers and rest against the firmer support core. Top Queen Size Mattress
Given its rating of 6 out of 10, the Puffy Lux is considered a medium-firm mattress, making it potentially more suitable than the softer Puffy for average-weight and heavier sleepers.
The Puffy vs The Puffy Royal
Puffy’s top-of-the-line offering, the Puffy Royal, is a medium (5.5 out of 10) mattress with an extra-thick 14-inch profile. Like the Lux, the Royal builds on the standard Puffy’s construction with specialized foams and thicker layers. The top, 1.5-inch comfort layer is made from gel memory foam, followed by 2-inch layers of standard memory foam and temperature-resistant polyfoam. Finally, a 1.5-inch layer of convoluted polyfoam transitions to the Royal’s 7-inch high-density polyfoam base.
The Royal has a more resilient ‘bounce’ than the other 2 Puffy models. Testers still felt as though they were sleeping ‘in’ the mattress, yet they also experienced a more ‘floating’ feeling when compared to the Puffy’s deep cradle. It is also more durable, and has better temperature regulation for a cooler sleep.
Though not dramatically firmer than the Puffy, the Royal is a better choice for average-weight and heavier sleepers, especially back and side sleepers. This is due to its use of zoning, altering the foam in certain areas to far better support weight variations throughout the body. Denser foam in locations of increased weight (like the pelvis) provide far better spinal alignment, while softer foam in areas like the shoulders help prevent pressure points.
Shipping And Unboxing
The Puffy is made in the U.S.A. and ships absolutely free via FedEx (there’s a shipping fee to Alaska and Hawaii). Expect your new mattress to arrive within two to 5 business days.
The Puffy is delivered bed-in-a-box style– compressed and rolled in a box that’s 19 ″ x 19 ″ x 42″. For setup, take the rolled mattress out of the box and very carefully remove the vacuum-sealed covering. It will take around 10 minutes to totally expand. The Puffy bed can be placed on any type of bed frame or box spring in good condition.
The Puffy mattress comes with a Life time warranty for the original owner of the mattress. The company assures your mattress will be free from material or craftsmanship defects for as long as you possess it.
Covered defects consist of permanent body impressions deeper than 1.5 ″ and flaws in the mattress cover fabric, stitching, or zipper. If your mattress develops these defects with regular use, they’ll replace it for free and waive any shipping charges once they can verify the issue. To make a warranty claim, go to Puffy.com.
Trial Period And Returns
Puffy offers a 101-night trial period. If you determine it’s not the best mattress for you, just return it for a full reimbursement prior to your 101-night sleep trial runs out. Puffy will arrange for a rep to come to your home to pick up your mattress and donate it to a local charity. Puffy does ask that you give it a good 30 nights before you make a decision.
The Bottom Line
With cooling gel memory foam and exceptional motion isolation, any of the Puffy mattresses are a terrific choice for couples with lightweight or average-weight body types. Side sleepers are a great fit for the contouring foam layers, and average-weight back sleepers benefit from full-body support. Along with the 101 night sleep trial period, you have absolutely nothing to lose! Top Queen Size Mattress
