Construction Soft Mattress From Ikea

The Puffy is basically a memory foam mattress that measures a total of 10 inches. It features a straight forward design with just 2 foam layers: one of thick memory foam and another of high-density poly foam.

Here are the details as listed on their website:

10″ MATTRESS | 2 LAYERS

6.5 – 8.5 Medium-Firm Comfort

4″ Cooling Cloud FoamPuffy’s gel-infused foam increases airflow 8x more than conventional foam mattresses. Provides pressure relief and cooling system.

6″ Firm Core Support FoamExceptional support and spinal alignment for restorative sleep.

 

Parts:

Cover – The cover fabric was quite thin, which encourages airflow throughout the mattress. It is made from polyester, which makes for a soft and elastic material.

Comfort Layer – Comprised of 4″ of gel memory foam, the comfort layer here is soft and has a slow response to pressure, which usually means you are likely to sink deep for some intense body contouring. While it’s typical for all-foam beds such as this to incorporate a top section of memory foam, this layer in particular is very thick and should bring some satisfying relief to the hips and shoulders. And though memory foam has a reputation for overheating in the night, Puffy has been able to mitigate this using a gel infusion intended to keep things nice and cool as you are sleeping.

Support Layer – Composed of 6″ of high-density poly foam, unlike the memory foam layer over it, this part has a quick response to pressure and is quite firm. The combination of materials has been specifically chosen to deliver targeted relief to the spine. Soft Mattress From Ikea

 

Firmness

We discovered Puffy’s thick memory foam layer having a gentle, pressure-relieving texture. An absence of any sort of transition foam implies that you’re likely to interact mainly with the high-density poly foam as you quickly sink through the memory foam comfort layer. Because of this, you are most likely to feel as though you’re sleeping more “in” this mattress than “on top” of it. Although, if you want an even softer texture, you may want to check out the Puffy Lux, which has an extra layer of memory foam for an ultra-plush vibe.

Pressure Map

One other important aspect to consider when buying a new mattress is where pressure points will form while lying on top of it.

To help you picture where these tension spots might be, I placed a pressure map on top of the mattress and lied on my back, side, and stomach. You may see the results on the image where pressure is represented from blue (low pressure) to red (high pressure).

Puffy-Mattress-Pressure-Map

BackLying on my back, I could really feel myself sinking into the mattress, together with the memory foam in the top layer working to contour to my own body and fill in the space at my lumbar region. While this led to a great pressure relief in this position, it did make it difficult to move around and change positions.

Side – Rolling on my side, I felt a few pressure relief. I’m not too surprised with this as side sleepers tend to go for softer mattresses which provide cushiony support to the shoulders and hips, common problem areas for people who sleep in their sides.

Stomach – Though the thick memory foam comfort layer is a huge benefit for side sleepers, it’s a bit of a mixed bag for stomach sleepers who generally opt for firmer structures that keep the spine in an even alignment. HereI could feel my hips sinking out of line with my shoulders, which created some discomfort in this position.

Motion Transfer

Next up, let us take a peek at the Puffy’s motion transfer, or the level of disturbance detectable from one side of the mattress into another.

To demonstrate this motion transfer, I dropped a 10lb. steel ball from heights of 4 inches, 8 inches and 12 inches and measured the disturbance it generated: the larger the lines, the larger the disturbance.

FYI: Each drop is intended to symbolize another movement you are likely to encounter in bed, from tossing and turning (4″) to getting out of bed (8″) all the way to full on jumping (12″).

Puffy-Motion-Transfer

These are actually quite interesting motion transfer outcomes. You’ll see a small spike in first movement across the drops that quickly dissipates, which I’d attribute to the thick memory foam comfort layer. This material is excellent at absorbing and dampening motion, making it so you’re not likely to be overly bothered by your partner’s turning and tossing in the night.

 

Sinkage Test

When buying a new mattress}, most people want to know whether they’ll feel like they’re sinking “into” the mattress or laying “on top” of it. To visualize this sinkage, I placed four balls of varying sizes and densities on the mattress and also quantified how much they compressed the surface.

Puffy-Sinkage

6 lb medicine ball: 1.5 inches of sinkage.
10 lb steel ball: 2.5 inches of sinkage.
50 lb medicine ball: 4.5 inches of sinkage.
100 lb medicine ball: 7 inches of sinkage.

This tells me is that you’re very likely to sink in deeply through the foam layers within this mattress, resulting in a stuck-in-the-bed type feel that’ll make it a bit difficult to change positionsSoft Mattress From Ikea

 

Edge Support

The edge support on the Puffy mattress will feel stable and create a solid, edge to edge usable sleep surface. The compact base foam coupled with the supportive memory foam should create a very durable perimeter. Sleeping on this mattress you are able to sense a consistent feel across the whole surface without having a “rolling out of the bed” feel. So far as sitting on the edge goes, you will feel some support.

101 Night Sleep Trial and Guarantee

The Puffy mattress has a 101 night sleep trial period. This trial period should give you more than enough time to try this mattress out. Giving you and your body about three months to adjust to the new and improved feel of your memory foam mattress. It’s good to be aware that you should make the most of really testing this mattress in this time period. Anytime you buy a new mattress your body needs a few weeks to even months to completely adapt. If for any reason you reach the end of your trial period and it isn’t a good fit, Puffy will work with you to return and refund your purchase.

This mattress comes with a lifetime warranty which goes above and beyond what the standard warranty for the mattress business is. This guarantee indicates that Puffy actually backs their product. Covering any abnormal flaws or manufacturing errors. Minus the average wear and tear of a mattress. This provides consumers with the confidence that this is a mattress that the business will stand behind.

Puffy Mattress Sleep Temperature?

The Puffy mattress incorporates cooling technology in each material of this mattress. The upper layer of memory foam is a patent-pending cooling cloud foam that uses convection and conduction to dissipate heat and keep it away from the body. Additionally,a it is infused with gel that improves the airflow 8x more than conventional foam mattresses.

The base foam is compact and supportive to create a solid base that will not allow you to sink into the mattress and keep you closer to the surface at which less heat will build around the body. The cover is also breathable to help in keeping cool. All this allows for your mattress to maintain an perfect temperature while sleeping.

 

Is The Puffy Mattress Right For You?

PROS

First of all, I’d say this mattress could make an excellent pick for side sleepers because the thick comfort layer works to alleviate strain in the shoulders and hips.

Also note that the Puffy evokes a classic memory foam texture, so can be good for anybody with a penchant for the material. Soft Mattress From Ikea

And finally, this is one soft mattress, so can do wonders for anybody in search of a gentle, calming structure.

CONS

While the memory foam is a significant selling point of this mattress, it does make things a little uncomfortable for strict stomach sleepers who may find that it pushes their hips out of alignment with their shoulders.

It also contributes to a structure that does not have very much bounce, which could be a detractor for people in need of buoyant support.

Final Thoughts On The Puffy Mattress Soft Mattress From Ikea

The Puffy mattress is a great choice for everyone that are looking to get all the advantages of a foam mattress without overpaying. The simple design makes it a classic. This mattress is covered in a removable cover that can be unzipped and washed when needed. The top is soft and pliable and fits nicely to the mattress. It even has a very appropriate and aesthetically pleasing cloud layout that actually adds to the appearance. The side panels are a dark gray durable fabric that compliment the mattress as well. Soft Mattress From Ikea

Unlike the conventional foam mattresses, this one is going to stay cool and will cradle you fairly well and will provide good pressure relief. Puffy is extremely sturdy and includes motion isolation which makes it appropriate for all different kinds of sleepers. Although, I’d like to state this mattress is an excellent pick for side sleepers because the thick relaxation layer works to alleviate strain in the shoulders and hips. Moreover, the mattress provides proper body support and is a fantastic choice for all people who suffer from back pain or joint pain. Soft Mattress From Ikea
