Puffy LUX Mattress: My 10-Minute In-Depth Review

Puffy Mattress

If you are looking for a more luxurious memory foam mattress and don’t mind paying a little more for it, then the Puffy Lux is a great choice.

The Puffy Lux uses softer foams which feel plush and contour more easily around your body. And their use of Cooling Cloud foam ensures you sleep cool.

Puffy is so confident about the quality and longevity of their soft foam mattress, they stand behind it with a lifetime warranty – a rarity among memory foam mattresses.

In this 10-minute review of the Puffy Lux, I’ll cover what I learned during my two weeks sleeping in a Queen-sized Puffy Lux.

NOTE: If the Puffy Lux is not what you are looking for, then check out my reviews of other top-rated online mattresses.

Puffy Mattress Review

Puffy Mattress

If you are looking at Casper and Leesa but want a better-quality mattress plus the assurance of a lifetime (forever) warranty, then Puffy is a great alternative.

Puffy uses high-quality gel memory foam and a firm base layer to provide a nice balance of soft comfort with firm support. Their gel foam ensures you stay cool at night while providing excellent contouring.

There are no comfort level choices – this one is designed for the 80-percent of us who like a medium-firm bed.

Heavier sleepers should upgrade to the new Puffy Lux, which increases the thickness to 12″ and is more comfortable (see my recent review of the new Puffy Lux here).

Casper Original Mattress Review: Updated for 2019

casper mattress review - with bedding in apartment

Casper’s Original mattress is as good as most premium store-bought foam mattresses, but costs far less.

The Casper mattress excels at comfort, support and temperature control and will satisfy the vast majority of people. And everyone who buys one will save hundreds vs. a comparable quality mattress bought from a store.

It performs slightly lower in some areas that may matter to you, however, including motion transfer and edge support.

Casper attracted a lot of attention and sales a few years years ago when they entered the ancient mattress market with an aggressively low priced, really simple product sold direct to the consumer with a no-risk pitch.

Sales took off.

We bit, too. Casper was the first online mattress my husband and I bought, back when they were the only pure online manufacturer we knew.

Times have changed since then, of course. And so has Casper’s original product.

So how does Casper’s Original “best-fit” mattress compare today against newer competitors like Leesa, Tuft and Needle and Loom and Leaf?

Nest Love & Sleep Mattress Review

Love & Sleep Mattress

Nest’s Love and Sleep mattress is an upgrade of their popular Love Mattress. It also defies convention.

This is not a memory foam mattress, a latex foam mattress or a spring mattress.

Instead, the Love and Sleep mattress uses a special type of foam called Energex foam that combines the bouncy feel of a latex mattress with the extra-supportive comfort of memory foam. Nest also paid special attention to cooling, responsiveness and comfort.

The upgrade works.

This is one of the best mattresses we’ve reviewed at this price point.

You can buy it online for $599 (Queen), which is less than almost every budget mattress we’ve reviewed including Casper, Loom & Leaf and Purple.

Bottom-line, if you are looking for a comfortable and budget-friendly foam mattress, then the Love and Sleep mattress should be on your short list.

The rest of this 10-minute review analyzes the Love and Sleep on each of the factors that matter when buying a mattress online.

So let’s get to it!

Nest Bedding Organic Hybrid Latex Mattress Review

Nest Hybrid Latex

Nest Bedding is known for their high quality affordable beds including their popular Love & Sleep and their Nest Alexander series of mattresses.

The Nest Bedding Hybrid Latex is their latest luxury product – and it is one of their best. Especially if you love organic beds like me.

The Hybrid Latex mattress combines the best of two worlds, innerspring and latex.

But Nest doesn’t use just any latex – they use the platinum-standard, GOLS-certified organic latex. They also offer a less expensive Oeko-Tex certified natural latex version.

In addition, Nest Bedding offers several different comfort and configuration options including a split mattress, three comfort levels and the option of a topper.

Sound interesting?

Then read my full Nest Bedding hybrid latex mattress review below.

NOTE: To compare the Nest Hybrid with other latex mattresses sold online, check out my recent roundup of the best latex mattresses.

Nest Alexander Signature Series Mattress Review: Premium Zzzs for Less

Nest Alexander Signature Select mattress review - Nest logo window shot

The Alexander Signature Series Mattress is Nest Bedding’s follow-up to their first wildly successful online mattress, the Nest Love Bed.

Unlike the one-size-fits-all products from Casper, Tuft-and-Needle, Bear and Leesa, the Nest Alexander Signature Series is a premium foam mattress that offers a choice of comfort levels.

The Signature Series is also made of higher-quality materials (see below) that adhere to the organic/green manufacturing principles that all Nest Bedding products use.

Leesa Mattress Review: The Best All-Purpose Foam Mattress Yet?

Leesa mattress review - young woman on bed

Leesa has upped the game in the one-size-fits-all budget foam mattress category. 

The Leesa mattress provides a level of comfort I’ve never seen before in a one-size-fits-all mattress.

In my opinion, it’s equal to mattresses that cost as much as 3 times more… including some of the latest offerings from Tempurpedic, Optimum, iComfort and Comforpedic.

Leesa is built with premium materials, features three layers of high quality foam and is made with pride in the USA.

Like its #1 competitor, Casper, Leesa customers enjoy free shipping, a 100 night free trial and easy returns. But Leesa costs $100 less.

So how well does Leesa compare with other one-size-fits-all beds in a box like Casper, Tuft and Needle, Ghostbed and Bear?

Helix NightFall for Plus Sized Sleepers: Our In-Depth Review

Helix Nightfall

The Helix Nightfall is one of 9 mattresses that Helix sells.

The other 8 Helix mattresses are designed to meet different kinds of sleeping needs and preferences. But only Nightfall is made specifically for taller and heavier sleepers.

Helix describes it as a…

Taller 12″ mattress with an extra layer and higher density materials to provide the right comfort, support, and durability.”

The only other online mattress I have reviewed that caters specifically to plus-sized individuals and couples is the Big Fig mattress.

Read our quick comparison between the two mattresses at the end of this review.
