Puffy was founded in 2016 and currently produces three mattresses: the Puffy, the Puffy Lux Hybrid, and the Puffy Royal Hybrid. The original Puffy Mattress is an all-foam mattress, while the Lux Hybrid and Royal Hybrid have coil-based support systems. The Lux Hybrid represents a good middle ground for shoppers looking for extra features at a more affordable price.

The 12-inch Puffy Lux Hybrid has six layers that are optimized to provide adaptive support and contouring. This mattress utilizes pocketed coils in the support core. The mattress has a medium (5) feel that should appeal to sleepers who value pressure relief.

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

Puffy Lux Mattress Review Breakdown

The Puffy Lux Hybrid Mattresses has a medium firmness, falling at a 5 on a 10-point scale with 10 being the firmest. The 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 Hybrid has a top cover 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 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 Performance

Motion Isolation
Motion Isolation

The Puffy Lux Hybrid incorporates memory foam that helps reduce the transfer of motion across the surface.

While the Lux Hybrid transfers some 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

The Puffy Lux Hybrids relieves 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 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.

Temperature Control
Temperature Control

As it’s built with close-conforming memory foam, temperature control is not a strength of the Puffy Lux Hybrid.

Memory foam typically traps heat. The Puffy Lux Hybrid includes gel infusions in the memory foam that are designed to reduce heat retention. Hot sleepers may still find the mattress somewhat warm. However, 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 Hybrid offers average edge support. The comfort layers compress significantly under pressure, the coil support core helps 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 Hybrid offers some 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 Hybrid contains memory foam, it also has some pushback thanks to the pocketed coils. As a result, combination sleepers shouldn’t have too much trouble changing positions.

Sex

Like other hybrid beds, the Lux Hybrid has a somewhat bouncy surface that is conducive to sex. The memory foam also provides traction and decent edge support so couples can make full use of the bed.

The softer feel may cause some couples to sink during sex, which can limit movements, but the coils should provide at least some pushback.

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 Hybrid off-gasses on a comparable level to other hybrid beds. The smell should dissipate within a couple of days provided the mattress is kept in a well-ventilated space

Sleeping Style and Body Weight

Side Sleepers: The Lux Hybrid performs best for side sleepers who weigh 230 pounds or less.

The Lux Hybrid’s 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.

Under 130 lbs. 130-230 lbs. Above 230 lbs.

Back Sleepers Excellent Fair Fair
Stomach Sleepers Good Fair Poor
