Puffy Mattress Highlights

  • The Puffy mattress is a three-layer memory foam mattress made of two types of proprietary foam—ClimateComfort™ foam and Cooling Cloud™ Foam.
  • Puffy’s recently launched 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, it’s 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.
  • The Puffy is made with a stain-resistant cover, making it easy to clean and keep clean.

Testing Behind the Scenes

Unboxing the Puffy

It took us exactly one minute and 16 seconds (1:16) to unbox the Puffy mattress. This mattress was very light and easy to maneuver. As soon as we opened the packaging, the Puffy took its full shape immediately. It had a mild scent once opened, but this went away within an hour.

For our setup test, the Puffy received an awesome score of 9.5 out of 10. See the video below to check out the unboxing process for the Puffy.

Testing Motion Transfer 

We test motion transfer in two different tests. The first one is based on our human testers. One lies on the bed with an eye mask, while the other climbs into bed, rolls around, and climbs out of bed. Then we ask the blindfolded one how much movement they felt.

Our sleep subjects noticed they could hardly feel the movements of their sleep partner while on the mattress. In fact, they didn’t even feel them get up to leave. So for the first part of our motion transfer test, the Puffy received a 9.

The next part involves wine! We place a full glass of wine on the bed and have someone rolls around on the bed. The wine glass barely moved at all when on the Puffy. The liquid inside was still too. Check out our video below to see why the Puffy received a 9.25 on this test.

Testing Support from the Edge

This one might sound weird to you, but the amount of support you get from the edges of your bed matters. We test edge support by having our test subjects sit on the edge and tie their shoes. Then, we have them lay on the side of the bed.

According to our testers, support on the end of the Puffy mattress was very good. The edge of the mattress actually gripped them as they sat down. So then we asked them to lay on the edge.

Once again, they felt the edge of the Puffy mattress cradled and gripped their body as they approached the edge, even more so when they were laying down than sitting. So for the second part of our edge support test, the Puffy scored a 9 and received an overall score of 8.75 out of 10 for edge support.

Measuring Pressure Relief

For this test, we get technical and pull out a pressure mapping film to measure which areas of a person’s body feel the most pressure when lying on the mattress. Warm colors (oranges and reds) are an indication of high pressure, aka a painful night’s sleep. Cool colors (blues and greens) are what we like to see.

When our testers were on the Puffy we saw some red in their shoulders as they laid on their side. However, their backs were free from high pressure.

Spine Check

We always check for a straight spine when testing a mattress. Spine alignment is key to good, healthy sleep.

The Puffy did a good job of keeping those spines in neutral alignment. There was only a slight curve as the spine approached the base of the neck.

Customer Reviews of the Puffy

If you don’t want to take our word for it, see what real-life customers have to say about their Puffy mattress.

“Was nervous about buying a mattress without testing it out first. But glad I decided to give it a shot. It’s so much more comfortable than my spring mattress. Felt weird at first because has a different feel than spring mattress. But I sleep better and it’s just comfy. I’m a fluffy guy and I don’t overheat with it. Breaths pretty good I think.” – Michael M.

“I love this bed. I have a couple blown discs and sciatica so sleeping was always uncomfortable, no matter the position. Now I sleep and rarely move – I wake up with pillow creases in my face – so I know I’m not rolling around like I used to!! LOL I’d recommend this bed to anyone who suffers from hip or back pain – for sure. Love my Puffy!” – Eileen M.

“Overall the mattress is an excellent mattress. Very comfortable. Setup was a breeze. Degassing of minimal odor was completed in 3 days. Would recommend the mattress to anyone looking for a reasonably priced mattress that offers excellent comfort.” – Andrew D.

What’s Inside the Puffy Mattress?

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

  • 2″ Cooling Cloud Gel-Infused Memory Foam: This top layer of gel-infused foam is designed to disperse heat away from your body and promote airflow so you don’t wake up with the night sweats (’cause who likes that? No one).
  • 2″ ClimateComfort™ Memory Foam: This recently added memory foam layer is pretty darn cool. Unlike most foams that expand and contract depending on the temperature, this foam doesn’t. When it’s hot, foam tends to expand. When it’s cold, it can contract. 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 you can rest assured knowing you are getting the same support whether it’s the dead of winter or middle of the summer!
  • 6″ Firm Core Support Base Layer: The base layer of the Puffy mattress provides structure and durability to the entire structure. Its Insta-Firm technology offers 99% better responsiveness and 4x the support of standard mattresses.
