Puffy Mattress Review – Our Honest Evaluation

The Puffy mattress is a hybrid mattress. Hybrid mattresses are made with both foam and innerspring coils combined. The Puffy uses top-of-the-line foam and coils that have been carefully constructed for maximum support, comfort, and durability.

It is one of the most well-rounded mattresses on the market. This mattress was designed to accommodate many sleep styles, and does so beautifully. The mattress also provides sleepers with a cool and comfortable night of sleep. This is because the memory foam used in this mattress is gel infused. Additionally, the transitional polyfoam puts a layer between sleepers and the underlying base foam, which also helps ensure that people do not feel too warm while sleeping. These factors contribute to a healthy sleeping surface for most people who lay their head on this mattress.

It has an above average sinking/ hug factor and a below average pressure relief. This is why the mattress is on the firmer side of the medium firmness scale: It provides less sinkage for those who need more back support or want to achieve better spinal alignment by sitting upright against pillows or a wall. It also relieves pressure less than other mattresses aimed at sleepers who are heavier-set or who tend to sleep hot.

Mattress Performance

Puffy is the perfect mattress for couples because it’s ideal for insulation for partners. Memory foam and polyfoam are very good for absorbing and isolating the movement of the mattress. If your companion is tossing and turning or jumping out of bed in the middle of the night, you’ll be able to sleep soundly without being interrupted.

The Puffy Mattress uses a combination of foams to create its pressure-relieving sleep surface. It’s the ideal solution for back, side, or stomach sleepers looking for extra pressure relief and relaxation. The mattress has an extra plush feel, so if you like traditional foam mattresses that don’t sink in too much, this isn’t your best bet.

The puffy mattress is a hybrid memory foam mattress. It is an all-foam mattress that has a layer of memory foam and the top layer is a high density polyurethane foam. Thus, it tends to trap heat like any other foam mattress, but it doesn’t remain hot for too long because of the memory foam layer.

The Puffy mattress is composed entirely of foam, which gives it a plush feel, and makes it a great option for those who are not fans of innerspring. There is ample edge support to keep you from falling off the side of the bed when you roll toward the edge, but some testers will experience some minor sinking at the center compared to other memory foam mattresses.

Puffy’s top layers are made of two inches of open-cell memory foam and a half-inch of polyester fibers. These materials help the top layer contour to your body. This type of material is popular among people who like a sink-in feel. Good edge support is also a signature feature, which causes the bed to push back when you sit or lie close to the edges. Puffy does not use cooling gel in this area so you may find heat retention if you sleep near the walls.

The Puffy keeps an impression of a sleeper’s body for a period of time after they move, which helps to prevent movement from the sleeper in the bed. Most memory foam mattresses feature high density memory foam that makes them firmer and more durable. The Puffy offers a softer, medium density foam in its construction that reduces pressure points on the body while allowing it to contour with the sleeper’s movements.

With a rating of 4.6 and nearly 65,000 ratings, Puffy is a common sex mattress. Several reviews observed that during sex, the mattress provides useful support and that it does not bunch up or tip over.

The puffy is a high quality mattress that seems comparable to the Casper in terms of firmness, hug, and sink. It definitely off-gases more than most others, which is typical for an all-polyfoam mattress. Polyurethane is a common material found in mattresses, and it can have an odor that you are likely to notice. Some people are sensitive to VOCs (volatile organic compounds), which are off-gassed by polyurethane.


Sleeping Style and Body Weight

Side Sleepers

Side Sleepers

The Puffy is one of the best and most comfortable mattresses for side sleepers. It reduces pressure effectively and provides a good level of firmness that is neither too soft nor too hard. While it might not excel in some areas, such as heat retention and edge support, it does just enough to make it a good mattress to consider. Each sleeper’s experience will vary based on body type and weight, so don’t go by my review alone when deciding to buy the Puffy.

Side sleepers seem to make the most use of the Puffy mattress since it is excellent for relieving pressure, which is essential for side sleepers. A mattress that is too firm or doesn’t have enough support can fail to provide spinal alignment to side sleepers. Side sleepers will likely experience a lot of pressure and discomfort when their spines are not aligned.


back sleepers

Back Sleepers

Puffy’s medium firmness level and above average edge support will likely make it a good option for sleepers who alternate between sleeping on their back and side. Back sleepers may find that they have to adjust the Puffy every once in a while if they’re a back sleeper, but this shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

Most people under 130 pounds who prefer to sleep on their backs are likely to have a great experience with the Puffy. With its medium firmness level, most back sleepers under 230 pounds can benefit from the lumbar support it offers. Back sleepers may experience discomfort or even pain when lying on a mattress without adequate lumbar support.


stomach sleepers

Stomach Sleepers

Most stomach sleepers prefer more supportive mattresses and mattresses that respond to their needs. Deeply contoured mattresses such as the Puffy can lead to stomach sleepers sinking in too far, placing uncomfortable pressure on the neck.  Stomach sleepers are likely to find more comfort on the Purple or Winkbeds mattress.

We find that stomach sleepers make up about 5% of our user base. The other 95% tend to be side and back sleepers. Stomach sleepers tend to prefer firmer mattresses with little sinkage or hug. Because of this, mattress companies in general tend to make the firmer models thicker and higher off the ground. The Puffy digs in just a bit too much for stomach sleepers as a result, but some may find it comfortable.
