Bed Buddy Reporting On: Puffy Original Mattress
Our research includes a 100 consecutive sleep test, so we can say, ‘YUP, this is what we found, because we really slept on it!’
All the details
|SLEEP TRIAL||101 NIGHT|

|Durability||2 – The Puffy mattress uses slightly less dense foams which should be durable for lighter sleepers but won’t last as long for heavier sleepers (230lbs+) with nightly use.|
|Motion Isolation||5 – The Puffy mattress isolates motion very well making it a good option for couples or easily disturbed sleepers|
|Off-gassing||3 – The Puffy has some potential for off-gassing which should dissipate within a few days of unboxing|
|Conforming||4 – The Puffy mattress conforms closely to sleepers which can alleviate pressure points and gives the sleeper the feeling of sleeping “in” and not “on” the mattress.|
|Sex||2 – The Puffy is a very conforming memory foam mattress making it less “bouncy” (responsive) so less ideal for sex compared to other mattress types|
|Temperature Neutrality||2 – The Puffy mattress is fair in this category which is on par with similarly constructed memory foam mattresses|
|Edge Support||2 – The Puffy has fair edge support which puts it on par with similarly constructed memory foam mattresses|

Bed Buddy Report |Findings |
The puffy is a single firmness, two-layer memory foam mattress that stands 10″ tall and has a polyfoam support core. My review of the Puffy mattress found that motion transfer and conforming were major benefits. I also found that the softer foams used make Puffy mattresses a great option for lighter and average weight sleepers.
What Type of Sleeper Is Best Suited for a Puffy Mattress?
Based on my customer feedback, the Puffy Mattresses have received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a mattress.
As you can see, the Puffy is a solid choice for side sleepers and for light to average sleepers. I am wary of recommending the mattress to heavier weight sleepers as the softer foams likely won’t offer the support they need.
For more information on sleeping positions please see my guides for side, back, stomach and combination sleepers.
My testing process found that Puffy mattresses should also be great for you if…
- You love the feel of memory foam – sleeping more “in” than “on” a bed.
- Are a sleeper that weights less than 230lbs.
- You sleep with a partner and are easily disturbed.
