Queen Size Air Mattress
Puffy is among the more popular 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 popular for a reason. We think the Puffy mattress is an excellent choice for the majority of 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 feeling of sleeping on a cloud. Puffy has two luxury 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 three.

The medium-firm nature of the Puffy makes it fantastic for providing lots of pressure relief without compromising support. The top comfort layer cradles the body, while dense polyfoam prevents sleepers from getting stuck in the foam layers. Because of this support foam, we rate 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 great fit for back sleepers who don’t mind a little extra “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) usually aren’t firm enough to support stomach sleepers, so we don’t believe the Puffy is a good fit for that sleeping position.
The Puffy is an all-foam mattress with three layers dedicated to providing superior pressure relief and a “cloud-like” sleeping experience. With softer top layers that cradle around the body and a dense polyfoam base layer, sleepers should experience a soft cloud-like feel without getting “stuck” in the mattress.
Cover: The cover consists of standard polyester that has some stretch across 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 from 2 ″ of Cooling Cloud foam with gel infusions. This layer is meant to draw warmth away from your body and promote airflow, so you don’t get too warm. 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 of 2 ″ of Climate-Adaptive Foam meant to help add consistency to heat regulation. It incorporates advanced temperature and humidity-resistance materials to limit heat variations 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 extra comfort layering– an added inch of memory foam, and two 1.5-inch polyfoam layers, one temperature-resistant, as opposed to one 2-inch layer– in addition to its 7-inch high-density polyfoam support core.
On the whole, the Lux is really similar to the original Puffy. Both share comparable qualities, such as superior pressure alleviation. Nonetheless, the Lux improves on the Puffy by providing a thicker comfort layer that contours more deeply and provides added reinforcement.
Instead of sinking so far into the bed, sleepers are offered upgraded support paired with the exceptional pressure alleviation Puffy is known for. This is especially useful for heavier sleepers, who might find they sink through the original Puffy’s comfort layers and rest against the firmer support core. Queen Size Mattress For Sofa Bed
Given its ranking of 6 out of 10, the Puffy Lux is considered a medium-firm mattress, making it possibly 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 basic 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’ sensation when compared to the Puffy’s deep cradle. It is also much more durable, and has much better temperature regulation for a cooler sleep.
Though not substantially firmer than the Puffy, the Royal is a better selection for average-weight and heavier sleepers, specifically back and side sleepers. This is due to its use of zoning, altering the foam in certain locations to far better support weight variations throughout the body. Denser foam in areas of increased weight (like the pelvis) provide better spinal alignment, while softer foam in locations like the shoulders help prevent pressure points.
Shipping And Unboxing
The Puffy is made in the United States and ships free of cost via FedEx (there’s a shipping fee to Alaska and Hawaii). Expect your new mattress to show up within two to five 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 cut away the vacuum-sealed covering. It will take about 10 minutes to completely expand. The Puffy bed can be put 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 ensures your mattress will be free from material or craftsmanship 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 normal use, they’ll replace it for free and waive any shipping fees once they can verify the defect. To make a warranty claim, go to Puffy.com.
Trial Period And Returns
Puffy offers a 101-night trial period. If you decide it’s not the right mattress for you, just return it for a complete refund before 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 make a decision.
The Bottom Line
With cooling gel memory foam and excellent motion isolation, any of the Puffy mattresses are a great option for couples with lightweight or average-weight body types. Side sleepers are an excellent 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! Queen Size Air Mattress
