Puffy Lux Mattress Reviews 2020

Are you tired of an uncomfortable mattress disturbing your sleep? It might be time for an upgrade. Since its arrival in the market in 2019, Puffy Lux has become the most popular model of Puffy’s mattress line. It is thicker than the original mattress and has more to offer! As the winner of the “Ranked Best Mattress 2020”, you’ll want to check out our detailed review about the Puffy Lux Mattress.

Recommended for Whom?

  • Online mattress shoppers. Customers can easily order The Puffy Lux Mattress online in the comfort of their home with just a few clicks.
  • Lightweight to medium-weight individuals. Due to its construction, this Puffy mattress is best for lightweight sleepers as its foam contours slowly to the body.
  • Side sleepers. The Puffy Lux Mattress is one of the most comfortable mattresses for those who love sleeping on their side. Its delicious comfort and superb support can keep the spine aligned.
  • Warm/hot sleepers. Puffy’s temperature regulation and cooling properties keep sleepers from overheating.

Who won't like this bed?

  • Heavyweight sleepers. Those who weigh more than 230 lbs may not appreciate Puffy Lux the way lightweight and medium-weight sleepers do. Its layers of foam are not enough to keep heavy sleepers from sinking which may affect their spine.
  • Hybrid and innerspring mattress lovers. Just like the original Puffy mattress, Puffy Lux is an all-foam mattress which has that sinking sensation. If you prefer a hybrid or an innerspring mattress that has a more solid feel, this is not the bed for you.

The Puffy Lux Mattress has a high rating when it comes to providing motion isolation and pressure relief while eliminating noise. On the other hand, Puffy Lux fails a bit when it comes to providing a satisfying sex experience for couples.

How is the Mattress Constructed?

If you’re familiar with The Puffy Mattress, you might find it and The Puffy Lux Mattress similar. However, The Puffy Lux Mattress didn’t earn its title as the “Most Popular” Puffy mattress for nothing. This enhanced version of the original Puffy mattress is composed of multiple layers of foams to guarantee customers’ satisfaction.

Mattress Cover

The Puffy Lux Mattress is encased in a white durable polyester cover. Specially designed as a stain-resistant mattress cover, it also feels cool and plush to ensure sleepers’ comfort. As expected from Puffy’s line, the luxury cover of this popular version is also removable thanks to its zippered enclosure.

The Zip-N-Wash cover allows customers to deep clean it to remove all dirt and germs that build up after regular use. Furthermore, customers can rest assured that they’re sleeping on a quality cover that is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Certified.

Comfort Layer

Under the covers, The Puffy Lux Mattress has 4 layers of various forms. For its comfort layer, this mattress has a Cooling Cloud foam which serves as the top layer of the mattress. This is gel-infused memory foam that is quite thin with a 1.5″ profile. This layer of foam also has a density of 2.5 lbs PCF (per cubic feet). Since it has a low density, it has a light feel that allows deep pressure relief for sleepers.

Regardless, it still has a quick response to pressure which other high-density memory foams don’t. Beneath this layer is another 1.5″ layer of foam that enhances the contouring ability of the mattress. This Plush Dual Cloud is an exclusive layer of poly foam comfort layer that is added to Lux mattresses only. All foams of The Puffy Lux Mattress are designed to relieve pressure points and be eco-friendly.

Transition Layer

For its third layer, The Puffy Lux Mattress has the Climate Comfort foam that is 2″ thick. Slightly thicker than the first two foams, this polyfoam acts as the transition layer between the top and base layers. The Climate Comfort foam also has a higher density than the previous layers to prevent sleepers from sinking. This comes in handy for sleepers who typically experience excessive pressure on their hips and shoulders while sleeping on their side.

Base Layer

For the final and thickest layer, Puffy Lux has a 7″ polyfoam with a density of 1.5 PCF.  This thick layer of Firm Core Support foam acts as the solid base layer of the mattress. As a result, it can help promote spinal alignment even if you sleep on your back, side, or stomach. If you’re a lightweight or medium-weight sleeper, this thick support layer can also prevent the entire mattress from sagging.

Performance Ratings

Now, let’s check out how well is the performance of The Puffy Lux Mattress with the help of these layers. In this product review, we based our ratings on honest customer reviews and mattress testers regarding these factors:

Durability

Released in 2019, Puffy Lux is an all-foam mattress that is prone to having body impressions. It can also lose its firmness sooner, unlike those mattresses that are built with latex foams or hybrid construction. The Puffy Lux Mattress may not be able to last as long as most innerspring and hybrid models.

However, this doesn’t mean that it is no longer worth buying. You can still make the most of your mattress as long as you’re a lightweight or medium-weight individual or couple. This way, the mattress can preserve its firmness and last for years without sagging. If you rotate the mattress every 3 months or at least twice a year, its lifespan may be extended.

Motion Isolation

On The Puffy Lux Mattress, couples found its performance excellent when absorbing motion transfer. Its layers of memory foam and poly foam base layer reduces the shaking feeling throughout the mattress. The memory foam’s materials have high elasticity and slower response to pressure, making it great for singles and couples.

Edge Support

When it comes to edge support, Puffy Lux can accommodate lightweight and medium-weight sleepers without worrying about sinking too deep. However, users found that there is a noticeable sagging when sitting on the edge for a long time. Others who usually sleep near the edge of the bed found this uncomfortable. Its weak edge support can make it harder to get in and out of the bed, particularly for heavyweight sleepers.

Pressure Relief

While lying down on the Puffy Lux, its foams conform easily to the body including the side and hips. Its layer of memory foam can respond to heat and pressure, and contour for comfort.

Memory foams also provide that comforting feeling as if the mattress is hugging you. The mattress also has the Firm Core Support to eliminate pressure points and keep your spine properly aligned.

Temperature Control

If you fell in love with the cooling properties of the first Puffy mattress, you will love this version even more. The company incorporated a Climate Comfort layer that reduces the occurrence of temperature swings in the mattress that disturbs sleep. It has a unique warming effect in cold weather and a cooling effect whenever it is hot.

This is in contrast with regular memory foams that provide body-contouring comfort but normally trap heat. Hot sleepers can take advantage of this feature to avoid night sweats.

Noise

Since the Puff Lux doesn’t have coils or an air pump to worry about, it doesn’t make any annoying noise. Even if you shift during your sleep, Puff Lux will not wake up your partner (if you share your bed). Therefore, couples are more likely to enjoy a long and deep sleep with the help of this mattress.

Good for Sex

Responsive mattresses perform better for sexually active couples because they bounce back into their original shape without leaving permanent indentations after bedroom activities. Puffy Lux doesn’t do well in this category. It is not responsive enough to make the mattress feel comfortable while holding you and your partner’s weight. Its weaker edge support also reduces the space that you can use comfortably around the bed.

Light Weight – below 130 lbs

This mattress is the mattress for lightweight sleepers who weigh 130 lbs or less. Its Plush Dual Cloud foam and Cooling Cloud foams work together to reduce the strain from the pressure points.

Many lightweight side sleepers find this bed efficient in reducing the pressure on hips and shoulders. The Puffy Lux Mattress also accommodates lightweight stomach and back sleepers who benefit from the spinal alignment it promotes.

Medium Weight – between 130 to 230 lbs

For those sleepers who weigh 130-230 lbs, Puffy Lux can still be comforting and supportive. Its comfort layers work together to provide a body-conforming feel to help alleviate different pressure points in their body. Medium-weight side sleepers can also enjoy its feel since its layers of foams cushion their hips and shoulders well.

Even back sleepers can take advantage of longer and deeper sleep while their spine remains properly aligned. However, other medium-weight users who like sleeping on their stomach may find it a bit too soft. Their hips may also sink too deep into the mattress which can lead to discomfort from an improperly aligned spine.

Heavy Weight – over 230 lbs

The Puffy Lux Mattress is not the type of bed that we would recommend for heavyweight sleepers. It is composed of foams with low-density where heavier sleepers can sink too much. This sinkage can put their spine out of its proper alignment which can lead to back pains. In the case of heavyweight side sleepers, Puffy Lux’s foams may alleviate their pressure points despite their weight. There’s still the risk of causing harm to their spine due to its sinkage.

Best Deals on Puffy Lux

Is it Good for Stomach/Back/Side Sleepers?

Based on the factors above, we can say that Puffy Lux is a good choice of mattress for lightweight sleepers. We highly recommend The Puffy Lux Mattress to side sleepers.

We also recommend it to those who weigh less than 230 lbs as long as you prefer sleeping on your side and/or your back. The Puffy Lux Mattress tends to sink too much and sag sooner when used by heavier sleepers or couples.

Warranty

At Puffy, customers can rest assured that every mattress comes with a Lifetime Warranty. Whenever you have questions regarding your mattress warranty, the company always has customer service representatives that can help you.

To make the most of your warranty coverage, your mattress must be paired with an appropriate bed frame or base. If your mattress is damaged due to improper use such as being abused, misused, or burned, your warranty will be void. Without these issues, your mattress will be covered by the warranty if it has too many body indentations. Puffy will replace your mattress with a brand new one for free once your claimed defect is considered legitimate.

Free Trials

One of the things that caught our attention about this mattress is its 101 Night Sleep Trial. Compared with other brands, customers have a longer time to decide. In case you decide to return your mattress and opt for a different model or brand, Puffy will give you a full refund. The company will also help you find a local or national charity near you to donate your mattress. This is a win-win way to discover the best mattress that works for you.

What Makes Puffy Lux Unique?

Highlights

  • Feel and firmness. Despite using foam, Puffy Lux has a medium firmness level. This is slightly different from the brand’s claimed medium plush feel.
  • Fabric cover. Having a removable and machine-washable fabric cover is one of the things that make Puffy Lux standout. We also like the fact that Puffy designed its mattress cover to be stain-resistant.
  • Warranty and Night Trial Period. Additional factors that make Puffy Lux unique are its length of warranty and trial periods. Puffy is generous enough to let customers experience the mattress for a longer period than other brands allow.

How Does Puffy Compare with other Brands/Products?

Puffy Lux vs. Original Puffy Mattress

Compared with the 10″ Puffy Mattress, the Puffy Lux mattress has a 12″ profile. Its thicker profile includes a layer of 1.5″ polyfoam and 2.5″ Plush Dual Cloud foam which is exclusive to Puffy Lux. Since Puffy Lux is a specialized mattress, its exclusive comfort foam acts as a transition layer that provides more pressure relief. There’s also 1″ of memory foam and 7″ of high-density polyfoam support core layer that completes its layers.

Lux features better edge support and a thicker comfort layer which the original version lacks to avoid sinking too much. Due to its thicker profile and solid construction especially on the edges, it works with lightweight to average weight sleepers. Compared with the original Puffy Mattress with a medium-firm feel, The Puffy Lux Mattress has a medium feel.

Puffy Lux vs. Puffy Royal

The Puffy Lux Mattress has 12″ profile, while The Puffy Royal Mattress has a 14″ profile. The latter has an additional cooling layer that is 1.5″ thick which is infused with cooling gel beads. This layer makes the Puffy Royal feel cooler than the Puffy Lux since it also reduces the heat retention in the mattress. At the same time, this layer provides a consistent and comfy sleep.

Thanks to Puffy Royal’s exclusive reflexive pressure relief, you will not only get ample reflexive bounce but also relieve stress. This 2″ premium competes with Puffy Lux’s exclusive Dual Cloud foam which also reduces the strain from pressure points. Puffy Lux has cooling Cloud and Body Adapting Dual Cloud Foam, while Puffy Royal has breathable and sectional cloud technology.

This multi-directional 5 layer design gives Puffy Royal an edge over other mattresses, especially with its advanced SMT technology. It doesn’t only improve Puffy’s spine support but also provides a softer feel in the shoulders, neck, head, and feet. When it comes to the cost, Puffy Royal’s price is about twice the price of Puffy Lux. Thus, the latter is more practical if you want an affordable but efficient mattress with cooling properties.

Puffy Lux vs. Casper

Looking for an all-foam mattress, we stumbled upon the Casper Original Mattress which has 3 layers, unlike the Puffy Lux. Compared with the Puffy Lux, the Casper Original is 1″ thinner. Its layers include a breathable Airscape layer with tiny holes, memory foam, and thick base to protect it from sagging. Casper’s Airscape may increase the airflow through the mattress but Puffy Lux’s Cooling Cloud foam still feels cooler. This is due to its infused cooling gel which Casper Original lacks.

Puffy Lux has 2 comfort foams for sufficient comfort and support, while Casper has memory foam with 3 zoned supports. This layer feels softer around the shoulders to offer pressure relief on the upper body. At the same time, it feels firmer under the waist, lower back, and hips for spinal alignment. Meanwhile, Puffy Lux has a Firm Core Support that is specially designed to promote spinal alignment and pressure relief. Although Puffy costs more, it’s still worth investing in if you want a cooler bed with sturdier edges and stain-resistant cover.

Puffy Lux vs. Loom & Leaf

Not a fan of bed-in-a-box mattresses? If that’s the case then you might find the Loom & Leaf mattress interesting. Compared with Puffy Lux, the 12″ tall Loom & Leaf mattress is hand-delivered and set up in customers’ homes. But instead of being stuffed in a box, this mattress is built with premium layers of handcrafted materials. You can also use it sooner instead of waiting for hours until it has inflated into its full size.

Furthermore, the Loom & Leaf mattress has infused cooling gel to reduce heat retention, as well as antimicrobial, allergen-resistant, and flame-retardant properties. To top it off, it also comes with organic materials and a longer trial up to 120 days. But when it comes to security, Loom & Leaf offers a 15-year warranty only while Puffy offers a Lifetime. It doesn’t have a removable stain-resistant cover which makes Puffy Lux easier to clean and keep germ-free.

When it comes to other factors like motion isolation, temperature regulation, and pressure relief, both have almost the same performance. However, Puffy is a bit left behind when it comes to durability since Loom & Leaf foams have higher quality. Comparing their original prices; the latter is also more affordable considering the customers can choose between a relaxed firm and firm level of comfort. But with its updated discounted price and $300 value free king pillow with each mattress purchase, Puffy offers a good deal.
