“Returned ‘squishy’ Puffy”
“The Puffy mattress we bought online was super squishy. My husband and I ended up rolling to the center of the mattress all night. We returned that mattress and were very hesitant to try an online mattress company again. We bought our Nectar mattress about six weeks ago. We are very impressed with the quality of sleep we are getting! This mattress is similar to our old Tempur-Pedic mattress, but we sleep a little cooler with the Nectar mattress.”
Kamoanui
Verified Buyer
“Puffy not supportive enough”
“We really love our Nectar. We originally had a Puffy, but it wasn’t supportive enough. So we returned it and ordered the Nectar. I’m so glad we did. There is a definite difference in the two. This one is much more supportive without sacrificing comfort. It’s not too hard but not too soft either. It’s just right.”

Nectar is a decorated champ of drool-worthy sleep.

Puffy’s ‘trophy room’ isn’t what it claims to be.

  • Most of the award lists that Puffy says they’re on refer to Puffy Lux (which is hundreds and hundreds of dollars more than Puffy).
  • At least one of the lists doesn’t actually include Puffy.

Nectar is 12 inches high.
Puffy is a “too soft” 10 inches.

Customers report loooong, happy-faced slumbers on nights with Nectar. Puffy is stunted at 2 inches shorter. And still somehow slightly more expensive.* Why? Let’s look at the layers of each mattress.

Both Nectar and Puffy are memory foam...

  • But unlike Puffy – which is all too-soft foam and base layer – Nectar gives you more. Keen engineering places your cradle layer over your support layer over your stability layer. All underneath a soft, breathable cover.

    Translation: you sleep snug as a bug all night.

  • Unlike Nectar, Puffy goes like this: plain polyester, thin slab #1, thin slab #2. Then the base. Which really just adds height. Engineering matters, and Puffy’s is lacking. Sleep Foundation puts Puffy at a 5/10 softness (compared to Nectar’s 6.5) and slurps you in with a 2/5 on the ease-of-movement scale (Compared to Nectar’s 5/5).

    Not exactly cozy conditions for Dreamland Express.

Layered foam like you’ll find in Nectar is the gold standard if you want a comfortable night’s sleep, night after night.

The Nectar Mattress

Cool-to-the-Touch Quilted Cover

Conk out cool with this soft, breathable cover.

Comfy Cradle Layer

Cuddle every angle and curve with cushy, pressure-relieving gel memory foam.

‘Just Right’ Support Layer

Get Goldilocks-level firmness with dynamically adjusting foam. So you never sink in too deep.

Stay-Stable Base Layer

This sturdy layer helps the oh-so-comfy upper layers give 5-star performances on repeat.

Slip-Free Lower Cover

No slip-and-slide here. Your mattress stays put, no matter which bedframe you choose.

Puffy Mattress

Cover

Polyester.

Layer 1

2” of foam.

Layer 2

2” of other foam.

Base

The Puffy base ensures the mattress isn’t just a few inches tall.

Why you should look closely at Puffy.
And why you may not like what you find.

Here’s the thing. It’s 2020. Anyone can sell anything online. Getting in stores is much more difficult. Nectar? Try it in a store near you, if that’s what you prefer. Puffy? Online only.

 

You can try Nectar in over 2,000 stores nationwide!

 

When you dig a bit deeper, multiple review sites say that Puffy is highly not recommended for those who weigh over 230 pounds.

 

So what does that mean for couples who together weigh over that? A lot of sink. And a lot of sweat.

 

Puffy seems more interested in manufacturing something to sell online. Rather than manufacturing something effective.

 

Plus, when you find out that Puffy is just not right for you, customer service sounds like an absolute nightmare.

 

These reviews could only be found on Consumer Affairs. Nowhere on the Puffy website.

Puffy doesn’t answer calls, messages, email
“Bought a mattress that I never received and they don't answer email, phone, online form, or reviews. I have not had a single communication since I paid them. I have tried over a period of time to contact them in various ways but they do not respond. They don't even allow you to call them to inquire.”

1-star reviews get deleted
“Mattress wasn’t comfortable. … Anyway waited 2 weeks and 1 day for 1800gotjunk to pick it up. It’s been a week and they don’t answer their phone or emails! Disputing with credit card, this is ridiculous! 101 days trial is a joke. HEADACHE. They will never post a review 1 star, it gets deleted.”
D, Canada
Verified Buyer
“Take your money and go elsewhere!”
“Their customer service is horrendous. I emailed 8 times no one has picked up yet. Called innumerable times no one answers. They make 101 night trial impossible. Take your money and go elsewhere! Would never recommend.”
Joanne, New York
Verified Buyer

So to sum it up:

  • Nectar uses premium foams to help provide optimal support for your entire body, no matter your height. Puffy can barely hold average weight.
  • Nectar is 2” taller with more foam than Puffy.
  • Nectar is a perfect 6.5 on the firmness scale. Puffy is a hold-you-captive 5.
  • Even with its superior construction, outstanding ratings, countless awards and amazing night’s sleep – plus its one-year trial and forever warranty – Nectar STILL costs $50 less than Puffy.*
  • You can get through to Nectar’s customer service right away. It looks like Puffy may never return calls and emails.
  • Nectar is decorated in the industry. Puffy pretends to be decorated in the industry.
