Puffy™ made waves in the mattress industry when they launched their first product a while back. Their original all-foam mattress garnered rave reviews from industry experts and consumers alike for its simple design, exceptional support and comfort, and great affordability. It has received love from Forbes, as well as the Ellen Show, with a lot of reviews saying ‘it’s like sleeping on a cloud.’
Having firmly established a reputation of being one of the biggest players in the mattress industry, Puffy has now upped their game with the release of their new, thicker Puffy Lux. They claim that the Lux performs better than their original offering in every aspect, but of course, you’d expect them to say that. So to find out if there is any truth in this bold statement, our expert reviewers recently had a crack at the new Puffy Lux. Is it a good buy? Is it overpriced? Let’s find out what they have to say.
What’s Inside the Puffy Lux?
The top layer of the Puffy Lux mattress is identical to the original. It’s comprised of the same Oeko-Tex certified moisture wicking and stain resistant fabric, which is designed to provide a dry and cool sleeping experience.
The first comfort layer is where the Puffy Lux starts to differentiate itself from its predecessor. While the original Puffy had “just” two inches of the revolutionary Cooling Cloud™ foam, the Lux has three inches. Compared to most other foams, Cooling Cloud™ foam provides 8 times more airflow. In addition to sleeping cool and providing a highly luxurious feel, it just melts away pressure points.
The second comfort layer is comprised of a plush 1.5 inches of Dual Cloud Foam that further enhances the Lux’s ability to adapt to the body’s contours and soothe joints and muscles.
Moving onto the third comfort layer, it has a thick three inches of the highly-acclaimed ClimateComfort™ foam, which facilitates a gentle, supportive transition, while continuing to resist humidity and regulate temperature.
Last but not least, the underlying support layer is comprised of a full six inches of support foam that provides excellent back support and gives the mattress excellent long-term resilience.
Feel & Comfort
While the Lux is similar to the Original Puffy mattress in many aspects, the first thing you’ll notice is it’s significantly more comfortable than its predecessor. This is primarily because of the extra amount of Cooling Cloud™ foam in the top comfort layer.
When it comes to firmness levels, our experts discovered that the Lux performs significantly better than most other all-foam mattresses available on the market. According to our assessment, the mattress offers medium to medium firm levels of firmness, which on principle, should be better suited to the average-sized sleeper. However, one of our expert reviewers is a heavy sleeper and they found the Puffy Lux to be quite comfortable.
If you’re partial to sleeping on your side and want to have all the benefits of memory foam without the usual drawbacks, you’ll find the Puffy Lux to be a great option.
Motion transfer and isolation is the party-piece of the Puffy Lux. As it’s made entirely out of different memory foams, you feel little to no motion transference. Our reviewers didn’t feel anything at all, even though one of them is a heavy sleeper.
In addition to featuring a dense and strong foam base layer that offers exceptional stability, the top of the Puffy Lux has the perfect combination of soft plush foam and dense memory foam. Not only does this provide exceptional support and comfort, but also reduces the transference of motion significantly.
The bottom line is that the Puffy Lux is a great choice if you’re looking for a mattress with great motion isolation. So if you’re partner tosses and turns a lot in their sleep, the Puffy Lux could be the answer you’re looking for.
In terms of support and stability across the entire mattress, the Puffy Lux is as good as (if not better) than any other memory foam bed on the market. The three separate layers of high-quality foams it contains offer a consistent density that helps in providing exceptional support across all areas.
Generally, edge support is the most prominent weakness of all-foam mattresses. They typically have less-supportive perimeters, which is why users are advised not to sit on the edges for prolonged periods. The Puffy Lux, however, does a lot better than most all-foam mattresses in this regard. Our reviewers found that despite being made entirely out of foam, the Puffy Lux provides adequate edge support.
Coolness is a big priority for some consumers, especially those that live in arid areas. On that front, we’re glad to report that the Puffy Lux passes with flying colors. As mentioned above, its top comfort layer features Cooling Cloud™ foam, which provides 8 times more airflow than most other foams. The thick layer of Cooling Cloud™ foam always keeps the mattress ventilated.
An infusion of gel is also incorporated in the layer of this special foam, further enhancing temperature regulation by dispersing heat efficiently. Even the top layer of the Puffy Lux plays a role in keeping it cool. In addition to being cozy and soft, the fabric is cool to touch and breathable.
Here are the prices for the different sizes of the Lux mattress as listed on Puffy’s website:
Warranty and Return Policy
In addition to free shipping all over the United States, the Puffy Lux mattress comes with a lifetime warranty. This warranty will remain in effect for the entirety of the mattresses’ lifespan. However, it only applies to the original buyer. If you decide to sell it, the warranty will become void. But the best part is the extremely generous trial period of 101 nights offered by the company. It gives you ample time to adjust to your new mattress, and decide if it’s suitable to your unique sleeping needs. The company also has a simple and straightforward return policy. You even get a full refund.
The Bottom Line
The bottom line is that the Puffy Lux is one of the best all-foam mattresses currently available on the market. Everyone has unique sleeping needs, which makes picking a mattress very subjective. The type of mattress that’s suitable for you depends upon how your body type and the sleep position you prefer, among other factors.
