Hot sleepers will appreciate Leesa’s higher cooling rating. Budget-shoppers will save with Leesa’s lower costs. Those worried about warranty coverage will prefer Puffy’s lifetime warranty.
Continue reading for an in-depth look at each of these considerations.
Pressure relief and spinal alignment are important considerations when shopping for your sleeping position. Side sleepers especially need a bed that will cushion pressure points, since their shoulders and hips support most of their weight. The Leesa mattress scored slightly higher than the Puffy in pressure relief, arguably making it the better choice for side sleepers.
Some stomach sleepers lie near their mattress edge with arms hanging over the side. These sleepers should take note of the Puffy’s superior score in edge support.
All sleep positions require proper spinal alignment to avoid back pain and overall spinal health. Again, the Leesa scored slightly higher than the Puffy. That doesn’t mean that the Leesa is the better overall mattress, just that it performs a fraction better.
Motion transfer and cooling are the key considerations for this category. A mattress with low motion transfer does a better job at absorbing movement from those with whom you sleep. Puffy scored a tiny bit higher than the Leesa here, but both were 9/10 and above.
Since the Puffy and Leesa are all-foam beds, temperature is a big factor. Again, the scores were close, but Leesa edged out Puffy with an 8.5/10 to Puffy’s 8/10. That gives Leesa a marginal lead over Puffy for those who overheat at night.
Leesa’s mattress is the more budget-friendly option. It runs between $75-$250 less than Puffy’s, and the price disparity gets bigger as the sizes get larger. Still, neither mattress will break the bank, so we recommend shopping for comfort over price. Both companies offer financing – Puffy through Klarna and Leesa through Affirm.
This category is one with a significant divergence. Puffy offers a lifetime warranty for all of their mattresses, while Leesa offers a 10-year limited warranty. Most mattresses have a lifespan of 10-15 years, so both warranties will cover your bed for the better part of its effective years.
Additionally, both companies give their customers a little over 3 months to trial their bed; however, Puffy again edges Leesa out, though this time by only 1 day. Puffy gives you 101 nights to test their bed, compared to Leesa’s 100-night sleep trial.
