Looking for the perfect sleep experience? The Puffy Royal Hybrid Mattress might just be what you’re searching for. Its luxurious 14-inch profile, 10-layer design, and unique blend of memory foam and coils offer the perfect balance of softness and support. But is it right for you?

Discover how the Puffy Royal Hybrid stands up to your sleep needs and whether it’s the key to unlocking the best sleep of your life. Learn about firmness and feel, mattress performance, and more in our comprehensive review.

Firmness & Feel

The Puffy Royal mattress offers a unique combination of firm support and luxurious softness, providing an exceptional sleep experience for a wide range of individuals.

During our testing, we found it offered firm support alongside excellent pressure-relieving capabilities, resulting in an overall medium-firm feel. I personally felt the mattress provided a solid foundational support, complemented by a pleasantly soft surface sensation. In contrast, my husband, Mike, noticed a slightly firmer feel but enjoyed the plush cushioning reminiscent of a mattress topper.

Mike, from ASL Reviews, demonstrates the Puffy Royal's exceptional contouring by pressing his hand into the mattress.

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the firmest, the Puffy Royal mattress fell around a 6.5 or 7, offering substantial support while still allowing for a comfortable, pressure-relieving sleep experience.

Side Sleepers

Side sleepers often contend with pressure points around the hips and shoulders, stemming from the concentrated weight on these areas. A mattress that’s too firm can worsen these pressure points, leading to discomfort and potential circulation issues. Maintaining proper spinal alignment can also be challenging, resulting in morning stiffness or pain.

Despite being on the firmer side, the Puffy Royal’s exceptional contouring capability delicately molds to the body’s curves, particularly around pressure-sensitive areas like the hips and shoulders. This unique feature ensures optimal pressure relief, making it an excellent choice for side sleepers seeking support and comfort.

Back Sleepers

Maintaining proper spinal alignment and adequate support throughout the night are crucial for back sleepers. A mattress that’s too soft can cause the hips to sink too deeply, leading to misalignment and potential discomfort. Conversely, a mattress that’s too firm may not provide enough contouring or pressure relief, resulting in tension and discomfort along the spine.

The Puffy Royal provides optimal support and contouring, ensuring proper spinal alignment and pressure relief for back sleepers. Its construction distributes weight evenly, reducing back pain. This could be a great option for back sleepers.

Stomach Sleepers

Typically, mattresses that excel for side sleepers may lack the necessary support for stomach sleepers. However, the Puffy Royal defies this norm. Stomach sleepers often struggle with maintaining proper spinal alignment, as sleeping on the stomach can cause the lower back to arch excessively. An ideal mattress for stomach sleepers should offer firm support to prevent excessive sinking and enough cushioning for comfort without compromising alignment.

I found that I was equally as comfortable on my side as I was on my stomach while testing the Puffy Royal. This versatility makes it a standout choice for stomach sleepers.

Weight Capacity

The Puffy Royal offers substantial support, accommodating sleepers weighing up to 350lbs. The Twin, Twin XL, and Full sizes support up to 350 lbs, while the Queen, King, and Cal King sizes can accommodate up to 350 lbs per side. Learn more about Puffy here.

Puffy Royal Mattress Performance

Cooling

The Puffy Royal is packed with cooling technology aimed at helping combat heat retention. However, despite these features, Mike and I (both hot sleepers) experienced some heat buildup during the night. Its thick foam layers, designed for close body contouring and pressure relief, contribute to its slightly warmer feel. For those seeking optimal cooling performance, we recommend exploring our selection of best cooling mattresses for alternatives.

Edge Support

Edge support refers to the ability of a mattress to maintain its shape and stability along the perimeter. It ensures that sleepers can comfortably utilize the entire surface of the mattress, including sitting or lying near the edges, without feeling like they might roll off or experience instability.

Despite concerns about its thick foam layers potentially affecting performance, the Puffy Royal impressed us with its exceptional edge support. During testing, I could comfortably lie along the edge without instability. This robust support ensures consistent comfort and stability, making it an excellent choice for couples sharing a bed.

Motion Isolation

No one wants to wake up whenever their partner gets up for a bathroom break. That’s why a mattress with good motion isolation is crucial for couples sharing a bed.

Fortunately, the Puffy Royal excels in motion isolation, a crucial feature for undisturbed sleep. With 7 inches of pressure-relieving, contouring foam in its comfort layer, this mattress effectively minimizes motion transfer. Mike and I often have different sleep schedules. Still, the Royal’s thick foam layers ensured we didn’t disrupt each other throughout the night, allowing us both to enjoy uninterrupted rest.

Ease of Movement

Do you frequently change positions throughout the night? If so, ease of movement is a crucial consideration for uninterrupted sleep. Thankfully, the Puffy Royal excels in this aspect, allowing for effortless movement. Its responsive design ensures that changing positions is a breeze, making it an ideal choice for combination sleepers transitioning between various positions. Coupled with its suitability for all sleep positions, the Puffy Royal offers versatility and comfort, catering to the needs of a wide range of sleepers.

Off-Gassing

Off-gassing refers to the release of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from materials such as foam, which can produce a noticeable odor when a mattress is first unboxed. While it’s common with mattresses made with foam, the duration and intensity of off-gassing can vary.

After unboxing the Puffy Royal, we experienced some mild off-gassing. However, this dissipated quickly and became unnoticeable after just a few hours. This is consistent with typical off-gassing behavior for foam mattresses. Overall, the off-gassing experience with the Puffy Royal was minimal and temporary, allowing us to enjoy the mattress comfortably shortly after setup.

Is The Puffy Royal Mattress Right For You?

If you’re searching for a mattress that caters to all sleep positions and body types, the Puffy Royal is an excellent choice. With its firm support and exceptional cushioning, this mattress ensures a comfortable and supportive sleep experience for all. Additionally, couples will appreciate its outstanding motion isolation and edge support, allowing both partners to enjoy undisturbed sleep throughout the night.

Crafted with premium materials and designed to offer a truly luxurious sleep experience, the Puffy Royal is a top-tier option for those seeking ultimate comfort and indulgence. However, it’s essential to note that this luxury comes with a higher price tag, making it less budget-friendly compared to other options on the market.

While the Puffy Royal excels in many areas, hot sleepers may find that it sleeps a bit warm. For those seeking optimal temperature regulation, we recommend pairing it with our favorite cooling solution, the Eight Sleep Pod 3 Cover, for a cooler and more comfortable sleep environment.
