Queen Bed Mattress Base
Puffy is among the more preferred foam mattresses available online. It was first popularized by the Ellen Show back in 2017 and has since truly taken off. Puffy is an inexpensive, all-foam mattress that’s preferred for a reason. We believe 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 brand-new mattress on the block, which reportedly mimics the feeling of sleeping on a cloud. Puffy has two 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 excellent for providing lots of pressure relief without giving up support. The top comfort layer cradles the body, while dense polyfoam prevents sleepers from getting stuck in the foam layers. As a result 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 do not mind a little extra “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) usually 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 three layers dedicated to providing exceptional 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 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 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 air flow, so you do not get too hot. It’s also developed 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 constructed from 2 ″ of Climate-Adaptive Foam meant 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 because of the Lux’s additional comfort layering– an additional inch of memory foam, and two 1.5-inch polyfoam layers, one temperature-resistant, instead of one 2-inch layer– along with its 7-inch high-density polyfoam support core.
On the whole, the Lux is really similar to the original Puffy. Both share similar qualities, such as superior pressure relief. 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 paired with the exceptional pressure relief Puffy is known for. This is particularly useful for heavier sleepers, that might find they sink through the original Puffy’s comfort layers and rest against the firmer support core. Queen Bed Mattress Base
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 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 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, however 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 dramatically firmer than the Puffy, the Royal is a better selection for average-weight and heavier sleepers, particularly back and side sleepers. This is due to its use of zoning, altering the foam in certain locations to 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 areas 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 brand-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 cut away the vacuum-sealed covering. It will take about 10 minutes to completely expand. The Puffy bed can be placed on any bed frame or box spring in good condition.
The Puffy mattress includes a Life time warranty for the original owner of the mattress. The company guarantees your mattress will be free from material or craftsmanship defects for as long as you own it.
Covered defects include permanent body impressions deeper than 1.5 ″ and flaws in the mattress cover fabric, stitching, or zipper. If your mattress develops these issues with regular use, they’ll replace it for free and waive any type of shipping fees once they can confirm 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 ideal 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 a wonderful option 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. Together with the 101 night sleep trial period, you have absolutely nothing to lose! Queen Bed Mattress Base
