Puffy is among the more preferred foam mattresses offered online. It was first popularized by the Ellen Show back in 2017 and has since really taken off. Puffy is an affordable, all-foam mattress that’s popular for a reason. We believe the Puffy mattress is a good choice for most people if you weigh under 230 pounds—- we rank a medium on our soft-to-firm scale.
Puffy is the new mattress on the block, which reportedly mimics the sensation of sleeping on a cloud. Puffy has two high-end brands, the Puffy Lux and the Puffy Royal, in addition to 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 great for giving lots of pressure alleviation without sacrificing support. The top comfort layer cradles the body, while thick polyfoam prevents sleepers from getting stuck in the foam layers. Due to 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 a good fit for back sleepers who do not mind a little added “hug” from their mattress, and they’re generally soft enough to cushion side sleepers’ pressure points. True medium-firm mattresses (those with a firmness level of 6/10) generally aren’t firm enough to support stomach sleepers, so we do not think the Puffy is a great fit for that sleeping position.
The Puffy is an all-foam mattress with three layers dedicated to providing exceptional pressure alleviation and a “cloud-like” sleeping experience. With softer upper layers that cradle around the body and a dense polyfoam base layer, sleepers should experience a soft cloud-like feeling without getting “stuck” in the mattress.
Cover: The cover consists of standard polyester that has some stretch throughout the surface. It’s a thinner cover, so it should not feel warm to the touch.
Layer # 1: Cooling Cloud Foam: The top layer of the Puffy is made from 2 ″ of Cooling Cloud foam with gel infusions. This layer is meant to pull heat away from your body and promote air flow, so you do not get too hot. It’s additionally constructed to cradle your body, so you don’t feel unnecessary pressure on your curvier body parts like hips or shoulders.
Layer # 2: Climate-Adaptive Foam: This layer is made of 2 ″ of Climate-Adaptive Foam meant to help add consistency to heat regulation. It includes advanced temperature and humidity-resistance materials to limit heat changes 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 tall, the Puffy Lux is noticeably thicker than the company’s flagship model. This is due to the Lux’s extra comfort layering– an additional inch of memory foam, and two 1.5-inch polyfoam layers, one temperature-resistant, rather than one 2-inch layer– as well as its 7-inch high-density polyfoam support core.
Overall, the Lux is really similar to the original Puffy. Both share similar qualities, such as outstanding pressure alleviation. However, the Lux improves on the Puffy by providing 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 exceptional pressure alleviation Puffy is known for. This is particularly helpful for heavier sleepers, who may find they sink through the original Puffy’s comfort layers and rest against the firmer support core. Cost For 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 basic 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 two 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 much better spinal alignment, while softer foam in areas like the shoulders help prevent pressure points.
Shipping And Unboxing
The Puffy is made in the USA and ships completely free via FedEx (there’s a shipping fee to Alaska and Hawaii). Expect your new mattress to arrive within 2 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 carefully remove the vacuum-sealed covering. It will take around 10 minutes to fully expand. The Puffy bed can be placed on any bed frame or box spring in good condition.
The Puffy mattress features a Lifetime warranty for the original owner of the mattress. The company assures your mattress will be free from material or workmanship defects for as long as you own 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 problems with typical use, they’ll replace it free of charge and waive any shipping charges once they can verify the issue. To make a warranty claim, visit Puffy.com.
Trial Period And Returns
Puffy offers a 101-night trial period. If you determine it’s not the right mattress for you, simply return it for a full reimbursement prior to your 101-night sleep trial runs out. Puffy will arrange for a representative 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 decide.
The Bottom Line
With cooling gel memory foam and exceptional motion isolation, any of the Puffy mattresses are an excellent option for couples with light-weight 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. Together with the 101 night sleep trial period, you have absolutely nothing to lose! Big Lots Queen Size Air Mattress
