Puffy Mattress: A Comprehensive Review

Construction

The 10” Puffy mattress has a dual layer of high-quality foam, tastefully combined with a ‘body adapting cloud formula’. This structure helps the mattress to adapt itself to a variety of sleeping positions, contouring itself around any form of weight distribution.

Layers

Puffy comes with an impressive dual foam based system. The initial layer is a 3” viscous polyurethane foam, aka the “Cooling Cloud Foam” (patent pending). It is specially designed to disperse the heat emanating from the sleeper.
The gel infused into the foam not only absorb excess heat from the body but also helps aerate the mattress, thus improving the circulation of air between the layers.
Along with the soft cover, this foam provides additional contouring to any sleeper and even acts as a stress reliever by focusing on the hips and lower back.

The final layer, or rather the 7” base layer, is integrated into the mattress to provide the sleeper with a unique level of firmness. Consisting of a core support foam of 1.5 PCF polyurethane, the pressure foaming technology built into this layer boasts nothing but excellent back support.
It keeps the sleeper’s spinal alignment in check, which further helps the user’s blood circulation during sleep. This support foam also comes with an ‘Insta-Firm’ technology, which makes a perfect foundation for the mattress and increases its lifespan.

Cover

The majority of the cooling effect found in this mattress comes directly from its cover. Puffy’s luxurious stretch knit cover is very thin and contains tiny pores that ventilate the mattress regardless of the surrounding temperature or humidity levels.

Firmness

The desired amount of durability varies from user to user, so it is safe to say there is no ideal level of firmness. Puffy tried to achieve universal comfort, but their mattresses find themselves on the firmer side of things. On a scale of 1 – 10, Puffy mattresses settle at the range of 6.5 – 8.5.

Feel, Motion Transfer, and Sinkage

Puffy mattresses come with edge-to-edge support, which results in a slight bounce with minimal sinkage.

The 3” gel foam upper layer acts as an excellent motion absorber and reduces the vibrations caused by a partner shifting in bed.

The viscous foam adds the much-needed firmness to the mattress, thus increasing its durability and decreasing the possibility of excessive sinkage despite the weight distribution.

Puffy mattresses are available in 6 different sizes.

Nectar Mattress: A Comprehensive Review

Construction

Possessing an integrated system of multi-layered memory foam, Nectar mattresses come packed in a plush quilt built into the cover. If stress relief is a main concern, then Nectar has got you covered. The comfortable cover provides significant pressure relief while still embracing the sleeper. This construct is ideal for people who prefer to sleep on their sides.

Layers

Amounting to 11’ inches on the whole, Nectar mattresses come with a 3” layer of memory foam below the dual layers that are built into the cover. It further reduces the built-up stress and contours the sleeper in a plush embrace.
The layer that follows afterward acts as a transitional buffering layer. But, unlike the 3” layer, this base is much more responsive to applied pressure. It is highly elastic, bouncy, and very sensitive to weight distribution. This keeps you from over sinking into the mattress.
The final layer used by Nectar is a base of dense polyfoam; it acts as a supporting structure to carry the other foam layers. This layer also creates a stable foundation, and when coupled with the sensitive foam layered atop, it increases durability by helping it retain its shape.

Covering

Nectar Mattresses have a unique Tencel Cotton infused into their covers, making them highly breathable, softer, and better able to absorb moisture than any other premium cotton.

Integrated into the cover is also a 1” layer of gel memory foam that keeps the mattress aerated and cool, ultimately letting you experience more comfort.

Firmness

Nectar strives to strike a balance between too plush and too firm. On a scale of 1 – 10, it would have a stand somewhere around 6.5.

Feel, Motion Transfer, and Sinkage

The combined features of the gel foam and the 3” memory foam not only contour the sleeper’s body, but also isolate vibrations caused by movement. It absorbs these vibrations and helps minimize motion transfer.

The unique support feature of the dense polyfoam and the sensitive foam reduces sinkage and helps the mattress stay durable by helping it retain its original shape.

Final Verdict

So, which of these mattresses is right for you? Will it be the Puffy mattress with its superior spinal support or Nectar with its features designed for side sleepers?
We’d say that puffy could be your mattress of choice if:

You have a spinal condition

 The dual layer structure of polyurethane that Puffy incorporates into their mattresses provide the sleeper with superior spinal support. By focusing on the lower back, it helps relieve stress.

Sleep on your back

As the mattress is on the firmer side of the scale, Puffy is ideal for sleepers who sleep on their back.

You are looking for cooling and breathability

 The porous durable cover and the patent pending “Cooling Cloud Foam” keeps the mattress breathable and fresh. The superior ventilation maintains a decent temperature throughout the mattress.

Nectar would be optimal for you if:

You prefer to sleep on your sides

The pressure resistance system in the 3” foam layer contours your body perfectly, while the foam built cover embraces the sleeper. This is ideal for those who sleep on their sides.

You are a light sleeper, and your bed is shared 

The exceptional shock absorbing capacity of the two layers of memory foam gel quilted into the cover along with the following layer memory foam isolates the motion vibrations at their source. This means that your partner’s movements on the mattress will go unnoticed. Hence, we highly recommend Nectar for the light sleepers.

Economical

If you have a limited budget but do not want to miss out on quality, Nectar is a great choice. Nectar offers quality at an affordable price, making it the more economic option.

Final Thoughts

Puffy mattresses have superior back support and increases blood circulation to improve the overall sleeping experience. However, Nectar mattresses are ideal for side sleepers who are interested in a plush, embracing feel.

Although both these mattresses have great qualities and are often competing for customers, this decision can only be made according to your personal preferences.

We hope our comprehensive guide was able to help you make your decision. Giving some ideas about both these mattresses to help you make a choice.
