See Why These Canadians Love Douglas

You deserve the best sleep possible. And according to Canadians, that means sleeping on a Douglas mattress.

Two Thumbs Up

We have had our Douglas mattress for one week and already notice the difference in sleep patterns. I wake up with little to no back pain anymore. Two thumbs up on the Douglas mattress.

Absolutely Spectacular in Every Way!

I have tried countless beds and slept in many 5-stars hotels around the world, including the Armani hotel and the Burj Al Arab in Dubai.

The Douglas bed is absolutely amazing. No need for a money-back guarantee, for this will be the only bed you’ll ever want to sleep in.

7 stars!

Don’t wait. Give it a try and you will be completely in awe!

Joe O. Verified Douglas Buyer

Amazing! Didn't know I was getting a terrible sleep until I got a Douglas.

They are so comfortable I bought a second one right after the first!

Spencer H. Verified Douglas Buyer

Should Have Bought This Years Ago!

Amazing mattress! I wake up with no pain and I just love it! I am so impressed with the cushiony softness but yet still firm. I recommend this mattress to anyone looking for a top quality solution to back and shoulder pain.

Andrea M. Verified Douglas Buyer

We Really Friggin Like It

We slept great the first night, and every night since, it's been better and better.

We have had a few weeks with [our Douglas] now, and it just keeps getting more comfortable. My wife moves a lot in her sleep and I don't feel it anymore. It is quieter as well.

We spent last weekend at a 5-star hotel, and I wasn't as comfortable in their bed as I was with this Douglas.

So Comfortable

The bed I slept on at an Airbnb in Brandon MB was so comfortable I had to rip the sheets back and see what I was sleeping on.

It was a double-size Douglas.

100% Recommend

Bought this mattress after our friends recommended it and I am so happy we did!

I used to sleep 3 hours a night and now with this mattress, I'm getting my 8 hours of sleep again!

Joey G. Verified Douglas Buyer
Maple Ridge, BC
100% Satisifed

My husband wanted the firmest mattress we could find and I wanted one on the softer side. We are both 100% satisfied with the firmness.

We had the option of staying at a 5-star hotel recently and decided to come home because our bed is so comfortable. Great value for money. Very happy with our investment.

Shannon F. Verified Douglas Buyer

I Love My Douglas Mattress!

I work the night shift 12 hours as a nurse, and we are on our feet a lot. When I finish work, I can't wait to get home and climb into bed.

It's so comfortable I fall asleep almost immediately and I stay asleep.

My back feels so much better now that I am sleeping on this mattress.

Sleeping Better than Ever

This is hands down the comfiest mattress I've ever slept on. I've been sleeping better than ever. The mattress seems like fantastic quality and as someone who cares about where their products are made, I'm happy to rep the brand knowing they're made in Canada. Thanks, Douglas!

9 Reasons Why Canadians Choose Douglas over Puffy

Puffy Mattresses Are Much Softer than Douglas Mattresses*

Puffy claims their mattress is "medium-firm." Actual testing does not support this claim.

According to firmness tests we commissioned through third-party engineers, the Puffy mattress is notably softer than any Douglas mattress. Douglas is designed to give the right amount of pressure-point relief and support whether you sleep on your side, back, or stomach.

Did you know? Softer mattresses can result in back pain for average and heavier-weight individuals, especially if those mattresses cause your hips to sink too deep.

*Firmness ratings: Puffy (3.7/10) and Douglas (6.6/10), rated on a scale where 1 is very soft and 10 is very firm. These ratings are based on testing conducted by third-party engineers commissioned by, and covered in full detail in this APEGA-stamped report.

"The firmness is perfect. I had a Puffy mattress that was way too soft. [Douglas] is far better and so comfy with proper support. I highly recommend this mattress."

Douglas Gives You Nearly 4x Longer to Try the Mattress at Home

You should love how your mattress feels – not just for a few weeks, but all throughout the year. After all, we live in a country where the weather can change from -35C to +35C!

We’re so confident that you’ll love your new Douglas mattress that we give you ONE FULL YEAR to be certain that Douglas is the right mattress for you. That's nearly 4x the number of nights that Puffy gives you!

If you’re not 100% satisfied with your new Douglas mattress, you'll get a full refund and we'll arrange for the mattress to be removed from your home. It’s truly a risk-free sleep trial.

"I never considered a foam mattress before, but the reviews and risk-free trial convinced me. I am glad they did! Slept great immediately and awake every morning pain-free. This is one of the best purchases I've ever made."

Douglas Helps to Relieve Back Pain

Do you ever wake up with a sore back? It might be time to get a new mattress.

Douglas’s thick base layer provides full-body support across the mattress. And its cushioning top layer relieves pressure points while promoting proper spinal alignment for side, back, and stomach sleepers.

Puffy claims to offer "enhanced spinal alignment," yet they do not publicly disclose the materials or densities of any of their foam layers. As you've also seen, the Puffy mattress is softer than any Douglas, and sometimes softer mattresses can be a trigger for back pain.

85% of back pain sufferers said Douglas helped somewhat or a lot with their back pain.*

*Based on a survey of Douglas owners conducted in January 2023.

"I have had a persistent painful back injury from an accident several years ago ... We got a Douglas mattress several months ago and after sleeping on it the first night, I woke up with no stiffness or pain for the first time since the accident. I could not believe the difference."

Consumer Trust Agencies Rate Douglas Higher than Puffy*

It’s one thing to have raving reviews on your website – both mattress companies have that.

But it’s a better sign when customers leave positive reviews on websites that the mattress company doesn’t control or pay for.

Douglas has earned the highest possible accreditations on both Trustpilot and the Better Business Bureau, two independent consumer trust agencies that track company reviews and complaints.

Puffy? Let's just say there are some reviews they'd rather you don't see. (Like this Reddit thread by the moderators of the Mattress subreddit naming Puffy as one of the top brands to avoid.)

*Based on Trustpilot and Better Bureau ratings as of March 31, 2023.

"This will be the fifth Douglas mattress we have bought for our family ... These are the best products on the market. Keeping it Canadian, eh."

Douglas Is the Top-Rated Mattress for Motion Isolation*

Sleep disturbances can disrupt your sleep cycles. This keeps you from getting the restorative deep sleep your body needs to feel its best during the day.

Luckily, Douglas stops disruptive motion in its tracks. We hired licensed engineers to test over a hundred popular mattress brands on a number of qualities important to mattress shoppers. Each mattress was tested using the same publicly verifiable methodology.

🏆 Douglas mattresses earned the highest motion isolation rating out of 60+ popular mattress brands tested!

“One of the best things about this mattress is the lack of movement you experience as someone else gets in and out of bed. Not even a tremor!”

Douglas Has Better Edge Support than Puffy, Too!*

A mattress with excellent edge support can make getting in and out of bed easier. Not only do strong edges maximize the usable surface of the mattress, they're also beneficial for those with mobility issues or joint pain.

According to testing by licensed engineers, Douglas earned a higher edge support rating than Puffy:

Douglas: 7.3 / 10 rating = 🏆 WINNER
Puffy: 2.7 / 10 rating

Ratings Backed by Engineering Data

Testing by APEGA Certified Engineers

*Based on testing by third-party engineers commissioned by, and covered in full detail in this APEGA-stamped report.

"We returned a Puffy because it didn't have edge support – and so sitting on the edge was temporary, as you uncontrollably slipped off ... Douglas looked to be good in that department ... And it is."

Douglas Is a Proudly Canadian Company

Did you know that Canadian sleepers have different preferences than American sleepers? (Source) Maple Leaf

Douglas is a proudly Canadian company that manufactures all of its mattresses in Canada with Canadian materials. Every Douglas mattress is catered specifically to the needs of Canadian sleepers, while supporting hundreds of local jobs.

Although Puffy manufactures some of its mattresses in Canada, it's an American company headquartered in North Hollywood, California. Because of this, Puffy primarily caters to American comfort preferences. That means softer mattresses, fewer environmental initiatives, and shorter sleep trials that don't let you test out the mattress across all four Canadian seasons.

"Douglas provides quality, made-in-Canada products. I would recommend this bed to everyone I know. I have never slept this well! Thank you, Douglas, and kudos to your team for an A+ product."

Alexandre R. Verified Douglas Buyer

Orleans, ON
Douglas Is Made with Eco-Conscious Materials

Every Douglas mattress made in Eastern Canada is manufactured using energy from over 90% non-emitting sources, including wind and hydro. Plus, Douglas mattresses use low-carbon materials like ecoLight® foam and fabrics with sustainable, plant-based fibres.

Puffy does not list any environmental initiatives on their website.

"I spent a lot of time reviewing and comparing mattresses before I bought my Douglas. What sold me was the firmness level, sustainability, eco-responsibility, and that I was supporting a Canadian-made product."
