Quick summary about Puffy
Puffy according to the dictionary means swollen, inflated, baggy, etc. The logo shows a puff of cloud on the text. So before you go into any details expect a little softer, cozy and sink-in feel. It is a comfortable bed with memory foam layers.

It is an all-foam mattress 100% made in the USA devoid of any heavy metals and is available for sale in Canada as well.
It is available in three options Puffy Mattress, Puffy Lux mattress, and Puffy Royal mattress. The first two were quite a seller and since the launch of Puffy Royal on 14 September 2019, it has been among the favorite among buyers now.
Puffy Mattress is a 10-inches three-layered memory foam mattress. The puffy lux is a 12-inches four-layered memory foam mattress. The puffy royal is a step ahead and 14-inches 5 layered mattress.

Structure & Quality
The puffy mattress comprises of three layers.
Comfort Layer: The topmost layer is a 2” gel memory foam called cooling CloudFoam™. The primary job of the layer is to provide comfort and regulate the temperature while you are sleeping. It did a fairly good job. But in our feedback from past customers, few of them complained about overheating. There were reports of being “hot” in the night.
Our analysis suggests that it ensures a temperature neutral zone. But the people who are sensitive or experienced issues of the mattress being “hot” in the past, should avoid buying this.
Middle Layer: The next layer is the 2” ClimateComfort™ layer. The primary responsibility of this layer is to control temperature fluctuations. It maintains temperature by cooling itself when it is hot or warm when it is cold. It also makes adjustments to seasonal contraction and expansion. Hence you have a consistent feel throughout the year.
Core Base Layer: This is a 6” adaptive firm core layer of Puffy which forms the base of the mattress. The top two layers provide a soft cloud-like feel to the mattress and the base layer provides firmness. It supports proper spine alignment and contouring of body shape.
The puffy mattress is a bed in a box mattress. All the foam layers in the Puffy mattress are CertiPUR-US certified. It makes the mattress free from any toxins and any harmful chemicals.

It provides good lumbar support and body contouring. It is a comfortable mattress and should be quite accommodating for most sleepers. Even the combination sleeper who changes sleeping position in the night will find it supporting the body weight effectively.
Puffy mattresses across all models are good at motion isolation. It is one of the key highlights of this mattress. So it is good news for your co-sleeper. You can freely toss and turn in the night without the stress of disturbing the sleep of your partner.
