If you’ve ever yearned for a mattress that brings the sensation of resting amidst heavenly softness, the Puffy Cloud promises to fulfill that desire! In our in-depth Puffy Cloud mattress review, we’ll uncover the intricate layers, unique technologies, and exceptional comfort that define the Puffy Cloud. Whether you’re a side sleeper craving pressure relief or a back sleeper seeking a balance of support and cushioning, join us as we navigate the nuances of this mattress’s construction, firmness, feel, and more.

Firmness & Feel

The Puffy Cloud offers a nice balance between pressure relief and support, making it a remarkably comfortable mattress. With a medium to medium-firm feel, equal to a 6 to 6.5 on the firmness scale, the Cloud provides a versatile sleep experience.

The well-balanced feel of the Puffy Cloud makes it an ideal choice for a wide range of sleep positions, especially catering to combination sleepers who value ease of movement.

Side Sleepers

The Puffy Cloud mattress is an excellent option for individuals who prefer sleeping on their sides. Crafted for cloud-like comfort, its specialized comfort layers contour nicely to your body. Meanwhile, the foams swiftly regain shape, preventing sagging and encouraging optimal spinal alignment.

If you deal with shoulder or hip discomfort, exploring alternatives offering enhanced pressure point relief is worthwhile. The Puffy Lux (medium-plush) and the Puffy Royal (plush) mattresses are noteworthy choices that could better address these concerns.

Back Sleepers

The Puffy Cloud mattress is an exceptional choice for back sleepers and individuals grappling with back pain. Its medium-firm composition offers the ideal balance between cushioning and support, effectively cradling your body while maintaining the necessary firmness to keep your spine in a healthy alignment. Moreover, the foam’s adaptability around the hips further contributed to a sense of relief, making it a standout option for those seeking comfort and support in their sleep.

Stomach Sleepers

Stomach sleepers require a firm sleeping surface that maintains proper spinal alignment, especially for the neck and lower back, as these areas are more susceptible to misalignment in this sleeping position.

While Puffy excels in providing conforming comfort and effective pressure relief, these attributes may not provide enough support for stomach sleepers, particularly those weighing more than 130 lbs. If you’re primarily a stomach sleeper, consider options that provide more targeted support to ensure a more comfortable and aligned sleeping experience, such as the Sheets & Giggles Eucalyptus Mattress.

Heavy Individuals (230+ lbs)

Although Puffy claims that its mattresses can accommodate up to 350 lbs per side, the 10-inch all-foam construction might not be as durable for individuals in this weight range. For those weighing over 230 lbs, we’d recommend hybrid mattresses or mattresses specifically designed for heavier individuals.

Puffy Cloud Mattress Performance

Cooling

Puffy integrates open-cell foams infused with cooling gel, enhancing breathability and catering to hot sleepers. The medium-firm feel of the Puffy Cloud mattress mitigates deep sinking into the foam layers, which can trap heat. Although Puffy doesn’t actively cool, it delivers a dry, temperature-neutral sleep environment.

It’s important to note that various factors influence sleep temperature, including room temperature, choice of pajamas, bed sheets, and more. If you’re a hot sleeper, check out our recommendations for the best cooling mattresses or our favorite cooling accessory to add extra comfort to your sleep.

Motion Isolation

Choosing a mattress with minimal motion transfer can be the difference between a restful night’s sleep and a disruptive one. This is especially vital for light sleepers with partners prone to nighttime movements.

Thankfully, the Puffy Cloud excels in isolating motion. Its dense foam layers effectively absorb movement, preventing sleep disruptions.

Edge Support

Insufficient edge support can limit your bed’s usable space, which may be a concern, especially for couples sharing a Full or Queen-sized bed. Typically, all-foam mattresses struggle with this, while hybrids and innerspring mattresses tend to excel.

However, the Puffy Cloud demonstrates above-average edge support. While we experienced notable compression when sitting on the bed’s edge, it pleasantly surprised us by providing better edge support than anticipated when lying near the edge. This prevented the feeling of almost falling off the bed.

Ease of Movement

Memory foam mattresses are renowned for their exceptional pressure-relieving and deep contouring abilities. However, this very feature can sometimes leave sleepers feeling trapped in the mattress, like sinking in mud. The Puffy Cloud is fairly responsive, striking a harmonious balance between mobility and pressure relief. This makes it a solid choice for those struggling with back pain and combination sleepers who change positions frequently throughout the night.

Puffy Cloud Mattress Construction

Crafted in the USA, Puffy is an all-foam mattress that caters to diverse sleep positions and preferences. With a 10-inch mattress profile, it boasts a sophisticated 5-layer sleep system:

  • Patented Stain-Resistant Cloud Cover – This super-stretchy mattress cover embraces your body’s contours as you sink into the comfort layer. OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified, this cover is hypoallergenic and stain-resistant. It can be conveniently unzipped, removed, and washed for easy maintenance.
  • Cooling Cloud Foam – This 2-inch layer of gel-infused foam provides enhanced breathability, cooling, and pressure point relief.
  • Climate Comfort Foam – Another 2-inch layer of pressure-relieving cooling foam cradles your body while supporting various sleep positions.
  • Firm Core Support Foam – The 6-inch base layer comprises high-density foam that stabilizes and supports the mattress. This layer contributes not only to superior support but also to the mattress’s overall durability.
  • Grip Base Cover – Designed to prevent excessive movement, this cover helps the mattress stay in place even for active sleepers.

CertiPUR-US Certified Foams

At ASL Reviews, we prioritize the health and safety of the products we bring into our homes. We are happy to report that most of the mattresses we review come with CertiPUR-US certified foams, but unfortunately, some don’t.

Thankfully, all Puffy mattresses boast CertiPUR-US certified foams, ensuring your new mattress is devoid of harmful chemicals such as ozone depleters, heavy metals, or TDCPP or TCEP (Tris) flame retardants. These certified foams also emit low VOC (volatile organic compounds) emissions, improving indoor air quality.

Puffy Purchase Details

Sleep Trial

All Puffy mattresses come with a 101-night trial period. However, you must keep the mattress for at least 14 days before initiating a return. This is a standard practice among bed-in-a-box companies, as they often require you to keep the mattress for a minimum of 14-30 days. This gives you ample chance to break it in.

Shipping & Delivery

Shipping and returns are FREE within the contiguous US. Your new mattress should arrive via FedEx within 2-5 business days.

Should you determine that the Puffy mattress isn’t the right fit, you can easily initiate a return before the sleep trial concludes. Puffy will offer a full refund and coordinate the mattress pickup for donation to charity. It’s important to note that shipping charges apply to products sent to Alaska or Hawaii, and these fees are not refundable.

Lifetime Warranty

Puffy stands among the select few bed-in-a-box brands offering a lifetime warranty. This commitment guarantees that your new Puffy mattress remains free from defects in materials and workmanship for the entirety of your ownership.

While all Puffy mattresses are designed to adapt and conform during sleep, Puffy deems impressions greater than 1.5 inches excessive. As such, sagging or permanent indentations exceeding 1.5 inches are covered under your mattress warranty.

Choosing A Compatible Bed Frame Or Foundation

A suitable foundation offers superior support and enhanced mattress hygiene. Moreover, it’s important to note that using your Puffy mattress with an improper foundation can void your warranty.

Thankfully, Puffy mattresses complement most surfaces, including box springs, slatted frames (with slats no more than 4 inches apart), platforms, adjustable bases, and even the floor. Puffy also offers a collection of foundations, with our recommended choice being the Puffy adjustable base.
