Puffy was founded in 2016 and currently produces three lines of mattresses: the Puffy, the Puffy Lux, and the Puffy Royal. The original Puffy Mattress is an all-foam mattress, while the Puffy Lux and Puffy Royal are available in all-foam and hybrid options. The Puffy Lux and Puffy Lux Hybrid represent a good middle ground for shoppers looking for extra features at a more affordable price.

The all-foam Puffy Lux is 12 inches tall and has six layers that are optimized to provide adaptive support and contouring. The 12-inch Puffy Lux Hybrid features a similar construction, but this mattress utilizes pocketed coils in place of polyfoam in the support core. Both mattresses have a medium firmness that should appeal to sleepers who value pressure relief.

We’ll break down the performance, construction, pricing, and other aspects of the Puffy Lux and Puffy Lux Hybrid to help you determine if one of these mattresses could be a good fit for you.

Puffy Lux Mattress Review Breakdown

The Puffy Lux and the Puffy Lux Hybrid Mattresses both have a medium firmness, falling at a 5 on a 10-point scale with 10 being the firmest. Each bed is 12 inches thick. This is slightly taller than the average mattress, but still within the range for standard fitted sheets.

The Puffy Lux and Puffy Lux Hybrid have identical covers and comfort layers. The top cover is made of stain-resistant polyester that can be removed and machine washed. A grip base cover helps keep the mattress in place on the bed frame.

The comfort system has three layers. A 1.5-inch layer of gel-infused Cooling Cloud memory foam contours to the body to relieve pressure points. The gel is designed to absorb excess heat and keep the mattress cooler through the night. Next is a layer of proprietary Dual Cloud foam, which provides further contouring and pressure relief. The final layer in the comfort system is a 2-inch layer of Climate Comfort polyfoam, which is engineered to be breathable and helps the mattress maintain a neutral temperature.

The support core is where the Lux and Lux Hybrid Mattresses differ. The Lux’s core is constructed from 7 inches of firm polyfoam, while the Lux Hybrid’s core is made from 6 inches of individually pocketed coils with a 1-inch polyfoam base. The pocketed coils add support, bounce, and airflow.

Mattress Prices and Sizing

The Puffy Lux and Puffy Lux Hybrid have the same price. This price-point is a little high for an all-foam mattress. However, it’s on the low side for a hybrid mattress, making the Puffy Lux Hybrid a good option for budget-conscious shoppers in the market for a hybrid bed. Seasonal discounts may further lower the price of each mattress.

The Puffy Lux and Puffy Lux Hybrid come in all six standard mattress sizes

Mattress Performance

Motion Isolation
Motion Isolation

5/5 (Foam), 4/5 (Hybrid)

The Puffy Lux isolates motion exceptionally well. Both models incorporate memory foam that helps reduce the transfer of motion across the surface of each bed. Between the two models, the all-foam construction of the Lux Mattress allows it to absorb more movement than the Lux Hybrid.

While the Lux Hybrid transfers more motion due to its coil support base, the coils are individually wrapped in an attempt to keep this motion transfer to a minimum. This makes it a good option for sensitive sleepers looking specifically for a hybrid mattress.

Pressure Relief
Pressure Relief

Both the Puffy Lux and the Puffy Lux Hybrid relieve pressure with thick layers of memory foam and polyfoam.

Memory foam is known for its ability to relieve pressure by contouring to the body and cushioning the hips and shoulders. The memory foam and polyfoam layers in the Lux and Lux Hybrid provide a comfortable balance of comfort and support, especially for sleepers under 230 pounds.

Sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds may prefer the added support from the coils in the Puffy Lux Hybrid.

Temperature Control
Temperature Control

2/5 (Foam), 3/5 (Hybrid)

As they are built with close-conforming memory foam, temperature control is not a strength of the Puffy Lux mattresses.

Memory foam typically traps heat. All-foam mattresses, in particular, have a reputation for sleeping hot because their solid construction leaves little room for heat to escape. The Puffy Lux mattresses include gel infusions in the memory foam that are designed to reduce heat retention. However, hot sleepers may still find the mattress uncomfortably warm.

Of the two mattresses, the Lux Hybrid is a stronger choice for those who tend to wake up overheated. The coil support core allows more air to circulate throughout the mattress and results in a cooler night’s sleep.

Edge Support
Edge Support

The Puffy Lux mattresses offer average edge support. The comfort layers compress significantly under pressure, but the Lux’s firm polyfoam base, and the Lux Hybrid’s coil support core, help prevent sleepers from sinking in too far.

Still, individuals who weigh more than 230 pounds and who frequently sit or sleep on the edge of the bed might want to consider a firmer bed with a reinforced perimeter.

Ease of Movement

The Puffy Lux mattresses offer somewhat better ease of movement than other memory foam mattresses.

Memory foam is slow to return to its original shape, which can make some sleepers feel stuck when shifting positions or getting out of bed. Although the Lux and Lux Hybrid do contain memory foam, they also contain firmer foams underneath that prevent sleepers from settling too far into the bed. The Lux Hybrid also has some pushback thanks to the pocketed coils. Thanks to these additions, combination sleepers shouldn’t have too much trouble changing positions.

Sex

2/5 (Foam), 3/5 (Hybrid)

For sex, couples may prefer the Lux Hybrid over the Puffy Lux. Like other hybrid beds, the Lux Hybrid has a somewhat bouncy surface that is conducive to sex.

The all-foam Puffy Lux Mattress is virtually silent, which some couples may appreciate. Both Lux models also provide traction and decent edge support so couples can make full use of the bed.

Off-Gassing

Most mattresses have an odor when they first arrive at your home. This odor is referred to as off-gassing, and it is due to volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are produced as a byproduct of the manufacturing process. Off-gassing is typically considered harmless, but it may bother people who are extremely sensitive to smell.

The Puffy Lux mattresses off-gas on a comparable level to other foam and hybrid beds. The smell should dissipate within a couple of hours to a couple of days provided the mattress is kept in a well-ventilated space

Sleeping Style and Body Weight

Puffy Lux Mattress

Side Sleepers: Side sleepers need a mattress that contours to their shoulders and hips, as these areas make the most contact with the mattress. If a mattress is too soft, the shoulders and hips may sink too far and force the spine out of alignment. If the mattress is too firm, it can create pain in these high-pressure areas.

The Puffy Lux mattress is a solid pick for side sleepers weighing 230 pounds or less. The medium firmness is particularly suitable for contouring and support for side sleepers under 130 pounds.

Side sleepers weighing more than 230 pounds may find that they sink too far into this mattress, leading to unhealthy spinal alignment. For these sleepers, a medium firm or firm mattress provides more support.

Back Sleepers: Back sleepers typically need more support in the lumbar region to keep their hips and abdomen from sinking too far into the mattress. At the same time, the bed should be soft enough to relieve pressure. Most back sleepers find that a medium firm mattress best meets these criteria.

Those weighing 130 pounds or less receive excellent lumbar support and a comfortable amount of contouring from the Puffy Lux Mattress. However, the medium firmness level of the Puffy Lux may be too soft for sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds. These individuals may want to consider a firmer option to prevent pressure buildup in the lower back.

Stomach Sleepers: Like back sleepers, stomach sleepers need a bed that’s firm enough to avoid pushing the back into a U-shape.

The Puffy Lux Mattress rates best for stomach sleepers under 130 pounds, as these individuals do not put as much pressure on the mattress. For sleepers over 130 pounds, and especially those over 230 pounds, the Puffy Lux may be too soft. These sleepers sink into the mattress and may experience back and neck pain from poor spinal alignment.

Puffy Lux Hybrid Mattress

Side Sleepers: Similar to the Lux Mattress, the Lux Hybrid performs best for side sleepers who weigh 230 pounds or less.

The Lux Hybrid has an identical comfort system to the Lux Mattress. The memory foam cushions the shoulders and hips, which are common pressure points for side sleepers. The pocketed coil core provides a stable base to help promote spinal alignment.

Sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds generally benefit from the added support of a pocketed coil base. However, due to the Puffy Lux Hybrid’s thick comfort section, these sleepers may still experience too much sinkage in the midsection.

Back Sleepers: Back sleepers under 130 pounds should find they sleep mostly on, as opposed to in, the Lux Hybrid. For these individuals, the mattress’ medium firmness level provides excellent lumbar support and just the right amount of cushioning.

Sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds may find themselves sinking too far into the bed’s comfort system, which can throw their spine out of alignment and cause discomfort. These back sleepers may want to consider a firmer mattress.

Stomach Sleepers: Stomach sleepers under 130 pounds can expect to feel comfortable and supported when sleeping on the Puffy Lux Hybrid. However, with its medium firmness and plush comfort layers, the mattress may provide insufficient support for stomach sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds. These sleepers exert more pressure on the mattress and generally require a firmer surface to keep the spine on an even plane.
