A “mattress in a bag” – that just sounds ludicrous! I thought so too. However, curiosity always wins with me and I can now tell you how stoked I am for our new mattress! We had been looking at all the YouTube video reviews and scouring the net for a while regarding this new craze. A mattress in a bag; really, how good can a mattress be that you’ve never tried or seen in person? How good can a mattress be that comes rolled up, vacuum sealed, and placed in a box be? We were very skeptical. Then, one day, the delivery came. It was from Puffy and it was a surprise from my husband’s employer. An early Christmas present if you will. How exciting is that? We’ve had it for about 3 weeks now and all I can say is WOW!
The mattress truly comes to you rolled up, vacuum sealed, and in a box. All you have to do is lay it on your adjustable frame, slats, box spring, floor, or flat frame. Unroll that puppy and cut open the vacuum seal in the plastic. Once you do that, the magic starts! You immediately hear the sound of the foam expanding and it looks like an air pump is blowing it up. We removed the plastic to let the foam breathe and expand and that’s when we noticed the pretty cover on it that you can unzip and wash. We waited over 4 hours to sit on the mattress or touch it because we wanted it to be all set and ready to go for bedtime.
Here’s a little back story on our sleep habits: Both my husband and I have not had a good night sleep in probably over 10 years. Waking up in excruciating pain, because of the sagging of our old mattress, a past injury to my lower back from heavy weight training, injury to my husband’s shoulders from repetitive motion in his work, and the fact that we are getting older has truly robbed us of a great night’s sleep in almost a decade. Each and every night for the last 10 years I would wake feeling as if I were crippled. I was crippled with pain that’s for sure! Every night, after about 4 1/2 hours of sleep I couldn’t take the pain any longer and would automatically get up, go into the kitchen and sit straight on the hard chairs to stretch my back out. I would basically sit there for an hour to an hour and a half or so before moving to do anything for fear of throwing my back out. My husband would wake with terrible pain in his shoulders, arms, hips and back. He too would have to sit at those kitchen chairs and slowly stretch out all the aches and pains. We didn’t know how much longer we could take it!
Voila! The mattress of our dreams has finally arrived!
Seriously, this picture above is not our bedroom – but it may as well be because that is how I feel (decadent and luxurious) when sleeping on this Puffy mattress! Oh my word people! The first time I sat on it, I thought; “This can’t be good for my back it’s too soft”. Then I laid on it and thought, “Oh, wait, this is really firm”. How can that be? A mattress that is really soft and really firm at the same time? Being a side sleeper, I need a firm mattress to support my spine but I need the softness of the foam to relieve the pressure points on my hips. Once it was time for bed, the mattress did this thing where it snuggled me in and supported me like a hug all night long! Another really cool feature, is the fact that we can’t feel each other roll over or get in or out of the bed. Seriously, there is no bounce! I am still in shock folks, for real.
Another awesome feature to this mattress is the Cloud Gel Layer. I am a HOT sleeper. My husband is a HOT sleeper. When we are sleeping it is like having a heater in the bed with us. For the last couple of years we have had a piece of pretty thick foam laying on top of our mattress. While it helped with the pressure points, it made for an incredibly hot night of sleep. We’d literally wake up sweating in our igloo of a house. We keep our home pretty cool – yet every morning we’d wake up miserably hot; all our joints seemed swollen too and we weren’t quite sure if it was from the materials that made up the foam or the fact that we were sleeping on foam to keep us in our hot state. With our Puffy mattress we no longer feel the heat!! The difference in the foam is amazing and having this Cloud Gel Layer makes a HUGE difference in the temperature.
Puffy even gives you a 101 night sleep trial period. It’s really a win / win situation. Try the mattress for 101 nights and if you don’t like it, you’ll get a full refund. They also have a lifetime warranty, it’s made in the USA, and it ships free to your door. What more could you ask for in a mattress?
One more thing I’d like to mention; I LOVE THIS MATTRESS!!!
