The Puffy Lux is a side sleepers dream. I was given a free queen size Puffy Lux for review. It is a super soft mattress that still provides good support and ultimate pressure relief. However luxury is not cheap. A queen size retails for $1,595 after discounts. This mattress is a 3 layer foam mattress with a generous amount of contouring foam at the top to really make you sink in.
Ordering and Unboxing the Puffy Lux
The Puffy Lux is available exclusively on the Puffy website. Ordering is easy and your mattress will arrive quickly. Mine took about a week after the order was placed. This mattress comes with a 101 night trial period so shipping is free and returns are also completely free if you return within the trial period. Your mattress will come shipped in a box like the one below.
Here’s a photo of what it looks like outside the box. Because it is roll packed it will take some time to decompress but not that long. It should be ready to sleep on within about 8 hours. You may notice some off-gassing beyond that time though so if you are sensitive to that, I would give it a full day to air out.
Overview of the Puffy Lux Mattress
Here’s a little video of the Puffy Lux in action. What you’ll notice is that compared to the original Puffy you will sink into this mattress even more.
How Much Does the Puffy Lux Cost?

Construction of the Puffy Mattress
COOLING CLOUD™ FOAM

FIRM CORE SUPPORT FOAM

Here’s a picture of the layers under the cover.
I always advise people to read the fine print but here’s the warranty in a nutshell. I think having a 101 night trial period is more important since it will give you ample time to decide if this is a good fit and if not, it’s a free return within the trial period.
In the event that we in our sole discretion determine that your Defect is legitimate as per this Warranty, your choice in remedies will be:
- During your first 10 years of owning your Puffy™, we will replace your bed with a brand new Puffy™ Mattress free of charge.
- Beyond the first 10 years, Puffy™ will completely repair or replace your Puffy™ mattress. There may be a $50 shipping charge incurred each way. However, Puffy™ will waive all transportation charges if it is confirmed that a materials or manufacturing defect(s) is(are) present.
- At your discretion, Puffy™ offers a “Quick Sleep” offer after the first 10 years of coverage. Should you choose this option you opt to keep your original Puffy™ foam mattress. Instead of us repairing/replacing your original defective mattress, we deliver you a brand new Puffy™ at half of the original price you paid.
My Puffy Lux Findings
Here’s a picture of how much my 14 lb. bowling ball sinks into the mattress. As you can see you get quite a bit of sinkage, even more sink than the original Puffy.
In terms of motion transfer there basically isn’t any. It’s an all foam mattress with lots of foam so you won’t wake your partner at night. I don’t think you will be moving much anyway since this mattress is so good at pressure relief you will likely stay in the same position longer on this mattress.
Here’s a look inside the Puffy Lux to give you a better idea of how each layer reacts. The top layer which is the comfort layer is the slowest to relax but that’s because it needs to provide maximum contouring. The middle layer is a transition layer which has some contouring and some support benefits. The bottom layer or base layer is the support layer and provides a solid, consistent sleep surface.
My Puffy Lux Recommendation
While this mattress is a bit pricier than its competitors, I am very happy with how well it relieves pressure. Dedicated side sleepers will really appreciate this and especially if you have tried other soft mattresses that just don’t cut it. I can’t claim that this mattress is for everyone and that’s OK. The Puffy Lux was designed to address the most pressing needs of side sleepers which is shoulder and hip pressure relief and excellent contouring. If you are a side sleeper on the hunt for pain relief and aren’t happy with the alternatives, give the Puffy Lux a try.
