Puffy vs. Puffy Lux Mattress(Detailed Review)

Construction and Materials

  • Puffy Mattress

This is a 10-inch mattress with two different foam layers. The top comfort section is three inches of gel infused memory foam, which provides comfort, body conformance, pressure relief and cooling on the Puffy.

Underneath that is the seven-inch foam core that provides spinal alignment and support. All the layers combined are wrapped in an easy zip washable removable cover.

  • Puffy Lux Mattress

As we earlier mentioned, this is a 12 inch mattress with three layers. The top layer is three inches of cooling cloud foam. This gel-infused foam has an airflow eight times more than a standard foam bed, leaving you cool and comfortable. It is also very pressure relieving and adapts to every inch of your body for ultimate comfort.

Under this is 2 inches of plush cloud comfort foam. This material dynamically shapes to your body and is specifically made to instantly outline to every pressure point. This perfectly adjusts with every sleeping position, making them all very comfortable.

The bottom 7 inches is a firm core support foam. This level creates the perfect foundation for great sleep ultimate support. It is ninety-nine percent more responsive and four times more supportive than standard foams, making it ideal for a solid foundation.

The overall winner of this category is the Puffy Lux mattress.

Feel and Performance

  • Puffy Mattress

We give this mattress a firmness of 6 to 7 out of 10, ten being the firmest. So, it is kind of right in the middle, but slightly on the firmer side. In our opinion, this bed is a little bit on the firmer side. You get to sink a little bit more without overwhelming stuck feeling.

As you lay on your back, it conforms very nicely on your lumbar, thanks to its quick reacting memory foam feel. Therefore, you do not experience a slow sinking feeling as much as you could with traditional memory foam.

As you lay on the back, the bed is firm enough for back sleeping. You will definitely sink into the three inch top layer, but you will feel the underlying support when you hit the dense foam foundation.

It is definitely soft enough for side sleeping. This is one of the things this bed is good for. As you lay on your side, you won’t have a lot of force push up on your shoulders or hips. So, it offers superb pressure relief and it is very forgiving.

For stomach sleepers, this bed will perform just fine for those who like to switch position every so often during the night. However, the Puff original may not be the ideal choice for you if you are the kind of person who mainly sleeps on the stomach.

  • Puffy Lux Mattress

We give this bed a firmness feeling of 5 to 6 out of 10, ten being the firmest. The firmness mainly varies depending on the overall weight of the individual sleeping on this mattress. We really like the overall density of the foam. It feels like a truly foam bed.

You will notice when you sleep on your back on this bed that it creates really good lumbar support. It is going to allow your hips to sink down, but it is going to groove to your lower back and you can really feel that memory foam supporting you.

When sleeping on the side, the mattress will contour really nicely, but you will sink in a little bit more than how you would with the original Puffy. The softer feel is good for superior pressure relief, making the bed one of the best choice for side sleepers.

The Puffy Lux may not be the best choice for people who sleep on their stomachs most of the time. It is a little bit softer for stomach sleepers. You may feel your hips sinking forcing your spine out of alignment. So, you may want to consider a mattress that is a little firmer.

The overall winner of this category is the Puffy Lux mattress.

Response and Motion Transfer

  • Puffy Mattress

As we mentioned earlier, this bed has a fairly fast reacting memory foam. Therefore, it will not be too difficult for you to change position from one side to the other. Unless you have extreme trouble getting in and out of bed, you should not have too much trouble repositioning on the puffy.

When you push down on the layers, you can expect the foam core to pop right up immediately, but the upper layer takes a bit longer to pop up.

Then there is a motion transfer. If you are used to a traditional innerspring where you feel your partner move around a lot more, then you will experience the difference with Puffy. This bed offers superb motion isolation, making it ideal for couples.

  • Puffy Lux Mattress

The Puffy Lux has fast reacting foam when compared to the original model. So, you can change positions as you wish, making it ideal for side and combinational sleepers.

When you push down on the Puffy Lux, you should expect a faster pop up from all the three layers. Unlike the original, the layers in this bed work together to produce a quick bounce.

Motion transfer on this bed is superb. Therefore, this is always going to be the best option for reducing movement and vibration that run throughout the bed. This is important for couples, especially if the couples like to toss and turn or wake up during the night.

The overall winner of this category is the Puffy Lux mattress.

Edge Support

  • Puffy Mattress

Edge support on this 10-inch mattress is not fantastic, especially in the seated position. When you sit on the edge, you will observe that the top three inches will sink in a little bit deeper. The sinking continues even after hitting the foam core.

  • Puffy Lux Mattress

Being an all-foam bed, you are not going to have exceptional edge support. However, you are going to have a very dense memory foam that is going to help hold you up.

At 12 inches thick, the edge support is surprisingly pretty good compared to that of the original Puffy. Most all-foam beds will make you feel like you are sliding off the bed when sitting on the edge. However, with the Puffy Lux, you are going to sink a few inches down without sliding off.

The overall winner of this category is the Puffy Lux mattress.

In Summary

Product Name Size Number of Layers Materials Comfort
Puffy Mattress 10-Inch 2 Cooling Cloud Foam and Firm Core Support Foam Medium-Firm Comfort
Puffy Lux Mattress 12-Inch 3 Cooling Cloud Foam, Plush Cloud Comfort Foam, and Firm Core Support Foam Medium Cloud Comfort

Both the Puffy and the Puffy Lux are going to be ideal to similar sleepers. Basically, anyone who admires the feeling of a true memory foam bed designed from durable and dense feeling foam material will approve of either choice.

If you are the kind of person who sleeps mostly on the stomach, then you are out of luck. Neither of the two mattresses will do you any good. You would want to consider something a little bit firmer. However, if you want a slightly softer feel for side sleeping, then the Puffy Lux is the ideal choice.

If you are that person who pays too much attention to the price tag, then you might compromise comfort for the cheaper price. However, if you want additional comfort, we recommend you to settle for the Puffy Lux.
