Quick Overview

Puffy offers two different memory foam mattress models: the puffy and the puffy lux. The puffy is a single firmness, two layer memory foam mattress that stands 10″ tall and has a polyfoam support core. The puffy lux a single firmness, three layer memory foam mattress that stands 12″ tall and also has polyfoam support core.

Our review of the Puffy mattresses found that motion transfer and conforming were major benefits. We also found that the softer foams used make Puffy mattresses a great option for lighter and average weight sleepers.

Sleep Rating

Durability
Fair

The Puffy mattress uses slightly less dense foams which should be durable for lighter sleepers but won't last as long for heavier sleepers (230lbs+) with nightly use.

Motion Isolation
Excellent

The Puffy mattress isolates motion very well making it a good option for couples or easily disturbed sleepers

Conforming
Very Good

The Puffy mattress conforms closely to sleepers which can alleviate pressure points and gives the sleeper the feeling of sleeping "in" and not "on" the mattress.

Sex
Fair

The Puffy is a very conforming memory foam mattress making it less "bouncy" (responsive) so less ideal for sex compared to other mattress types

Temperature Neutrality
Fair

The Puffy mattress is fair in this category which is on par with similarly contructed memory foam mattresses

Off-gassing
Good

The Puffy has some potential for offgassing which should dissapate within a few days of unboxing

Edge Support
Fair

The Puffy has fair edge support which puts it on par with similarly constructed memory foam mattresses

Noise
Excellent

The Puffy mattress will be silent when bearing weight so noise isn't a concern.

As you can see, the Puffy is a solid choice for side sleepers and for light to average sleepers. We are weary of recommending the mattress to heavier weight sleepers as the softer foams likely won’t offer the support they need.

Our testing process found that Puffy mattresses should also be great for you if…

  • You’re looking for an affordable memory foam mattress.
  • You love the feel of memory foam – sleeping more “in” than “on” a bed.
  • Are a sleeper that weights less that 230lbs.
  • You sleep with a partner and are easily disturbed.
