The Puffy Lux mattress is Puffy’s “one step up” mattress from their original model. If you liked the Puffy mattress, you’ll love the Puffy Lux mattress, especially if you’re a side sleeper (the Puffy Lux is a top pick for the best mattresses for side sleepers) looking for a comfortable night’s sleep!

In our in-depth Puffy Lux mattress review, we’ll go over how it performed in our testing, who it’s good for, and all the details you should know before purchasing. Keep reading to learn all about Puffy’s advanced model.

Puffy Lux Mattress Highlights

  • Premium Materials: Puffy Lux is Puffy’s premier mattress model made with patent-pending Cooling Cloud Foam, Puffy’s new ClimateComfort™ foam, and Plush Dual Cloud foam which comes exclusively with the Lux mattress.
  • Intelligent Design: The foams in the Puffy Lux work in tandem to melt the stress and strain from your body’s pressure points. The Puffy is made with a stain-resistant cover, making it easy to clean and keep clean.
  • Advanced Cooling Control: Puffy’s new ClimateComfort™ foam layer is resistant to contractions and expansions caused by extreme temperatures, so no matter what, this mattress will cradle your pressure points through the dead of winter and heat of summer. Additionally, its patent-pending Cooling Cloud gel-infused, memory foam layer helps draw heat away from your body so you don’t get hot and bothered during the night.
  • Endorsed by Ellen: This mattress even made an appearance on the Ellen Show. Yes, Ellen DeGeneres herself got into this bed!

Behind-the-Scenes Testing Highlights

Check out some of our favorite moments from testing to help inform your purchasing decision.

Setting Up the Puffy Lux Mattress

The Puffy Lux took us only one minute and fifteen seconds (1:15) to set up. It was light, easy to maneuver, had little odor, and puffed to life instantly!

It was so easy that the Puffy Lux scored a perfect 10/10 on our setup test. See our video below to watch for yourself!

Measuring Motion Transfer

If you have a sleeping partner, pay attention to this next test! We measure motion transfer in a mattress in a two-part test. First up is the human.

We have one of our sleep subjects lie on the mattress blindfolded, while the other climbs into bed, rolls around, and gets back out of bed. It looks something like this:

For this portion of the test, the Puffy Lux did a very good job isolating motion so the blindfolded person didn’t feel much movement. Next up is the wine test. We see if a glass of wine can withstand the movement from someone rolling on the bed. Take a look at the video below to see how the Puffy Lux performed.

Testing Pressure Relief

The Puffy Lux excelled at cradling pressure points. We test this with a pressure mapping film — warm colors are a sign of high pressure areas and cool colors are a sign of low pressure. So we hope to see blues and greens from the heat map.

There was no trace of red on our sleep subjects’ pressure mapping results! Check them out below.

Sleep subject two on the Puffy Lux mattress.

The Puffy Lux crushed the pressure relief test, scoring a 9.5 out of 10!

Spine Alignment Check

Next we get up close and personal to get a good look at how well the Puffy Lux supports proper spinal alignment. It’s important to look for proper spine alignment in a mattress to be sure you get a healthy night’s sleep.

The Puffy Lux did a great job of keeping spines in alignment. They were nearly straight!

From a Happy Couple: “From the very first night sleeping on our Puffy mattress, our back and hip pains have subsided, which makes for very restful nights.

On Comfort: “We love our new mattress! It’s so comfortable! We also ending up buying the Puffy Lux pillows, they are great! The mattress is soft but yet firm enough to provide support!” – Danielle R.

From a Compromising Couple: This has been the most comfortable bed my husband and I have ever slept on!

What’s Inside the Puffy Lux Mattress?

The Puffy Lux mattress is made of four proprietary memory foam layers and wrapped in a stain-resistant cover that’s covered in clouds:

  • 3″ Cooling Cloud Gel-Infused Memory Foam: A top layer of gel-infused memory foam designed to promote airflow and disperse heat away from your body – say goodbye to night sweats!
  • 1.5’’ Plush Dual Cloud Foam: Designed to contour to your body’s pressure points for exceptional pressure relief. Also enhances the breathability, comfort, & cooling qualities from the Cooling Cloud™ layer.
  • 1.5″ ClimateComfort™ Memory Foam: This recently added memory foam layer for advanced cooling and temperature regulation. Most foams change shape depending on the temperature, but this foam doesn’t. Typically, when foam is hot it expands and when it’s cold it contracts. This variability in the foam can impact its pressure-relieving abilities; however, the ClimateComfort™ layer by Puffy is resistant to these changes in temperature, meaning no matter what season/temperature/climate you’re in, the Puffy Lux has your back.
  • 6″ Firm Core Support Base Layer: This base layer provides structure and durability for the entire mattress. Its Insta-Firm technology offers 99% better responsiveness and 4x the support of standard mattresses.
