Company Overview

PlushBeds Logo California CoastPlushBeds is on a mission.  Since its founding in 2008, they have been laser focused on making a better mattress, a better way, to change how America sleeps.  Initially inspired to create change by the alarming amount of harsh chemicals used to make “traditional” mattresses, the Hughes family researched and began building relationships with the highest quality material manufacturers.  PlushBeds was born and they have been improving the lives of thousands of Americans ever since.

A Mix of Old World and New: Never satisfied, CEO Michael Hughes has spent the last 14 years traveling the world to learn the secrets of superior quality bed making.  Much time was spent in Europe training with artisans whose techniques date back hundreds of years.  These techniques ensure that Plushbeds’s innovative designs are married with lifelong quality and durability. 

All PlushBeds mattresses are assembled by hand in its Organic Certified California factory.  In fact, they recently doubled the size of their factory and invested significantly to bring in the very machinery the artisans use in Europe.  

How Organic is the PlushBeds Mattress?  Here are some of their certifications:

  1. GOLS Organic Certified Natural Latex
  2. GOTS Organic certified Cotton & Wool
  3. USDA Organic
  4. GreenGuard Gold Certified
  5. ECO Institute Certification
  6. Control Union Certification
  7. FSC Certified
  8. Rainforest Alliance
  9. CertPUR-US Certified Foams
  10. Arpico Certified Organic Latex
  11. Green America: Green Business Certification

Here we’ll be reviewing the PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Mattress (9”, 10” & 12” all in medium or medium firm).  Let’s get into what makes it one of the highest rated organic latex mattresses in the industry.

PlushBeds Construction & Materials

PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Mattress Layers

Before we dive into the Botanical Bliss’s two comfort levels, let’s have a look at the reason PlushBeds is voted one of the plushest and most supportive organic latex mattresses in the market.

The Cover

PlushBeds starts with a 100% GOTS certified ultra soft cotton cover.  Cotton is one of the softest, most breathable and most comfortable fabrics available. It’s cool, wicks moisture and, better still, is more sustainable than syntheticPlushBeds Organic Cotton Cover materials. Plushbed’s unique circular-knit fabric design offers enhanced hip & shoulder pressure relief.

NO glues are used during the assembly process, all cover materials are stitched together, by hand.

AND the PlushBeds comes with 6 extra durable handles.  Latex can be heavy, and the handles assist greatly when either moving or rotating the mattress.

The Benefits and Comfort of British Organic Wool

Within the circular-knit fabric, PlushBeds layers pure British Organic Wool. British Organic Wool in a basket The most luxurious wool available, British organic wool is extremely durable and can bend thousands of times without losing its form, resulting in PlushBeds’s award winning feel providing unyielding support and temperature regulation.  

How does it work?  Wool has one of the highest moisture absorbency rates of any natural material.  It absorbs moisture from the atmosphere, and then releases it when the atmosphere is drier, allowing you to maintain an even sleeping temperature.  The Botanical Bliss is actually made with three times as much wool as its closest competitor – up to 10 lbs. of organic wool in a king mattress.  Wool is also naturally antimicrobial, allowing the mattress to stay fresh night after night.  

Furthermore, the US mandates all mattresses have a fire resistant barrier.  Most companies choose a chemical solvent, but not PlushBeds.  The organic wool layer doubles as a natural fire retardant.  

Comfort Layers

PlushBeds uses 100% ECO Institute tested Talalay latex in every BotanicalLuxurious latex Bliss mattress.  Of the two types of latex (Dunlop and Talalay), Talalay is generally offers superior pressure relief and is desired for the comfort layer of the mattress.  Due to the manufacturing process, Talalay is less dense, yielding a more breathable latex.  As an added benefit, Plushbed’s latex is also Rainforest Alliance certified.  

Latex, made from sap of a rubber tree, is more responsive than memory foam (which absorbs energy).  Laying on latex, you can feel the material pushing back against you creating a bit of a “bounce”.  Talalay latex is naturallyLatex rubber tree sap antimicrobial, cooler than memory foam, requires no adhesives to seam it together, and is known for its durability.  For even greater cooling, PlushBeds perforates their latex, increasing air flow throughout the mattress. 

The 9” PlushBeds Botanical Bliss mattress offers a 2” layer of either medium or medium firm talalay latex (depending upon your choice) providing substantial pressure relief and unparalleled comfort in the shoulders and hips, where we need it most 

The 10” PlushBeds Botanical Bliss mattress boasts a 3” layer of either medium or medium firm talalay latex (depending upon your choice) providing substantial pressure relief and unparalleled comfort in the shoulders and hips, where we need it most.

And the 12” Botanical Bliss contains a 2” layer of either medium or medium firm talalay plus 3” of GOLS certified Arpico organic latex for a total of 5” of pressure relieving 100% natural latex.

Support Layer

PlushBeds chose one of the most ethically sourced support systems in the industry to pair with their 100% natural latex comfort layer.  Each of the Botanical Bliss mattresses has a solid 6” core of GOLS certified Arpico organic latex.  Arpico comes only from the world famous ARPICO rubber tree plantation where natural latex is created from the tapping of organic rubber trees (Hevea Brasiliensis). These trees are planted and grown with the highest standards when it comes to protecting the planet, and meet strict standards earning a variety of certifications for purity, along with strict standards for being 100 percent natural latex and being organic. The result: an ethically sourced 100% organic support system that properly aligns the spine while relieving pressure points for a comfortable night’s rest.

Tufting

To ensure that the wool covering fits together snug and tight on the mattress, PlushBeds chose a top tufting method for its Botanical Bliss line.  Top tufting involves sewing the organic cotton cover to the British Organic Wool comfort layer.  This type of stitching can only be done by hand through the experts at Plushbeds’s manufacturing facility.  The result, no clumping or shifting of materials creating a solid feeling mattress for a deep sleep all night long. 

As the cover has a zipper, allowing the comfort layer to be easily removed, the tufting stays at the surface.

Does it Sleep Cool?

Yes!  PlushBeds’s construction offers several mechanisms to give you a cool, dry comfortable night’s sleep (even for us furnace sleepers).  The first step to a cool night

Plushbeds cooling air vents sleep starts with a dry night sleep.  Let’s see how PlushBeds makes this happen.  The first step is the plush cotton fabric that makes the cover.  It is breathable and naturally wicks away moisture.  This is followed by a layer of wool.  Now, normally wool is used to keep us warm in the winter, but this layer is naturally antimicrobial and wool is one of the best wicking materials on earth.  It also promotes airflow through the fibers.  The latex is perforated and channeled allowing for air to flow freely whether we are moving or staying still at night.  Additionally, latex absorbs moisture to keep you even drier during the evening.  Finally, each handle is surrounded by European vents to help remove heat and increase air flow.  The result, a cool dry sleep all night long.

PlushBeds Comfort & Feel

PlushBeds 9” Botanical Bliss: Medium & Medium Firm

Firmest of the Botanical Bliss lineup, the 9” will feel most comfortable to stomach and back sleepers, up to 220 lbs.  Latex mattresses are known for their bounce and the 9” is no exception.  Immediately upon laying on the soft organic cotton and wool cover, you feel the substantial support of the latex pushing back against you.  Side sleepers will want to look towards the 10” or more preferably the 12” as the additional cushion will help keep the spine aligned while offering plenty of support.

Simple and elegant, the 9” botanical bliss comes in medium and medium firm.  Excellent for mobility throughout the evening, the latex is an ideal comfort material for sleepers that naturally change positions.  The 9” is also quite good for other nocturnal activities as well.

The 9” Botanical Bliss has all of the cooling factors PlushBeds is known for,  minus the deep enveloping sink.  Edge support is good as a 2” talalay latex comfort layer is above a substantial 6” dense 100% organic latex core.  Feel free to sleep all the way to the edge on the 9” Botanical Bliss!

  • On Sandman’s Firmness Scale, we rate the 9” Medium a 6.5 out of 10 and the Medium Firm an 8 out of 10.
  • Designed more for back and stomach sleepers, lighter side sleepers can get away with it and should definitely choose the medium.   
  • Designed to support individuals up to 220 lbs
  • The luxurious comfort layer provides a little bit of sink, but even so, the superior airflow design and advanced cooling technology will keep you cool and dry all night long.  The latex also provides a bit of bounce as it gently cradles your body.
  • Edge support is good – with minimal side sagging!
PlushBeds 10” Botanical Bliss: Medium & Medium Firm

The 10” Botanical Bliss feels a touch softer than the 9” given the extra inch of Talalay latex in the comfort layer.  Latex mattresses are naturally more responsive than their memory foam counterparts, so there will be minimal sink.  You will feel more “on top” of the mattress.  The extra bit of bounce makes it easier to roll around the mattress if you change positions frequently throughout the night.  That said, motion transfer is minimal.  You may feel your partner movement at night, but rarely will it disturb sleeping patterns.

As with all PlushBeds mattresses, the soft organic cotton cover, comforting organic wool knitting and naturally plush talalay latex will immediately bring you in and begin cradling your body.  This is followed by the substantial support from the dense 6” organic latex core.  As such, the Botanical Bliss 10” will be best suited for back and stomach sleepers that also tend to side sleep through the night.  If you wake up in the in-between position of partial back/partial side or partial stomach/partial side, you will enjoy all of the health benefits and proper spinal alignment of the 10”.  Exclusive side sleepers will be better suited with the 12”.  

Edge support is very good in the 10” allowing you to take maximum advantage of the entire sleeping surface without worry of sliding out!  Temperature wise, the Botanical Bliss sleeps neutral-to-cool.  The cotton & wool cover wicks away moisture keeping you dry throughout the night.  

  • On Sandman’s Firmness Scale, we rate the 10” Medium a 6 out of 10 and the Medium Firm an 7.5 out of 10.
  • Designed more for back and stomach sleepers, lighter side sleepers should choose the medium.   
  • Designed to support individuals up to 250 lbs.
  • The luxurious comfort layer provides a little bit of sink, but even so, the superior airflow design and advanced cooling technology will keep you cool and dry all night long.  The latex also provides a bit of bounce as it gently cradles your body.
  • Edge support is very good – with minimal side sagging!
   Botanical Bliss 9:" 10" & 12"
PlushBeds 12” Botanical Bliss: Medium & Medium Firm

The 12” Botanical Bliss offers substantial support and comfort from a 100% Organic latex mattress.  If you’re looking for the perfect blend of 100% organic comfort and support, look no further than PlushBeds’s most popular mattress and style – the Botanical Bliss 12”.  It’s the most comfortable, supportive and versatile mattress in PlushBeds’s suite of organic mattresses.  Versatility comes from the fact that two top comfort layers are of different densities and can be rearranged to find just the right Goldilocks fit.  Prefer a little softer?  Arrange the plushest latex on top.  Like it a little firmer?  Arrange the slightly denser second layer on top.  You are given maximum flexibility with the 12”.

As with the 9” and 10”, immediately upon laying on the soft organic cotton cover, comforting organic wool knitting and naturally plush talalay latex quickly feel the comfort cradling your body.  However, the Botanical Bliss is a true MULTI SLEEPER, designed to support all sleeping styles, side, stomach, back and any combination therein.  If you are an exclusive side sleeper, you will want to choose the 12”.  You will still feel just enough pressure relief on the top of the mattress but you are also going to have the support system that is going to keep you “on” the mattress rather than “in” the mattress.  No matter your sleeping style, you cannot go wrong.  Finally, edge support is very good on the 12” Botanical Bliss.  Therefore, you will be able to maximize the sleeping area and take full advantage of the mattress with no worry of sliding off a weak edge.   

The 12” It’s going to have the cooling factors that PlushBeds if famous for, minus the deep enveloping sink.  Regardless of sleeping position, or if you sleep hot, the Botanical Bliss has just enough latex comfort to provide superior support while at the same time keeping your body cool and aligned correctly.

  • On Sandman’s Firmness Scale, we rate the 12” Medium a 5.5 out of 10 and the Medium Firm an 7 out of 10.
  • Designed as a multi-sleeper, all sleeping positions and larger sleepers up to 275 lbs will enjoy the medium.  Back and stomach sleepers up to 275 lbs will enjoy the medium firm.   
  • The luxurious comfort layer provides a little bit of sink, but even so, the superior airflow design and advanced cooling technology will keep you cool and dry all night long.  The latex also provides a bit of bounce as it gently cradles your body.
  • Edge support is very good – with minimal side sagging!
   

Plushbeds Firmness Rating Scale

Motion Isolation

Botanical Bliss Mattress: Excellent

Latex, known for its quick response, is a different type of a material than the traditional memory foams, which are known for absorbing energy.  Latex provides more “bounce” which is excellent for some bedtime activities but takes a little away from motion isolation.  However, PlushBeds significantly decreases any motion transfer by adding the 1 inch cushion layer of wool in the cover.  The latex support system is a very dense block of latex which helps to absorb any shock from above, further promoting motion isolation.  From an all latex perspective, motion isolation is excellent in the Botanical Bliss.  Simply put, you may feel your partner ever so slightly at night.  

Sandman rates the Botanical Bliss Mattress Excellent for motion isolation.  However, for the best motion isolation, choose the medium 12” Botanical Bliss.

How about Edge Support?

Botanical Bliss Mattress: Good

We found the Botanical Bliss to offer good edge support.  You may sleep to the edge without falling off, but there is a little sink.  This is to be expected from a mattress without springs (unless you go extra firm!).  Latex offer more edge support than all memory foam as it is more responsive and does not sag like traditional memory foam.  The main edge support comes from two sources,

the core of Arpico latex and the cover.  The zipper cover is specifically designed to firm up the edges as it is lined with reinforced fabrics.

One Added Benefit: Latex is ultra responsive meaning it pushes back against you to fill in all the nooks and crannies.  This responsive nature has an added benefit to edge support.  The mattress helps you get out of bed in the morning!

With that said, if you need greater edge support, check out PlushBeds Luxury Bliss Hybrid as they reinforce the outer edge of the spring support system with thicker coils on every mattress for greater edge support.

PlushBeds reinforces the outer edge of the spring support system with thicker coils on every mattress.  This results in a stronger edge support allowing you to sleep all the way to the edge with no worry of sliding off.  As the mattress contains 3 inches of latex, that responsive material will actually add to the edge support, as opposed to a memory foam top that generally absorbs and sags as you lie on the edge.

One Added Benefit: Latex is ultra responsive meaning it pushes back against you to fill in all the nooks and crannies.  This responsive nature has an added benefit to edge support.  The mattress helps you get out of bed in the morning!

Off Gassing

The PlushBeds mattress is 100% natural. There is ZERO Off Gassing!

How does the Luxury Bliss arrive?

Depending upon the size, the Botanical Bliss comes in anywhere from 1 to 3 boxes, shipped straight to your door.  The first box includes your latex comfort layers.  ThePlushbeds-in-a-Box second box contains the shell of the mattress.  The boxes arrives via Fedex.  Simply unbox the shell of the mattress.  Rest it on the bed frame and remove the plastic wrapping and the shell will decompress before your eyes.  Unzip the cover and lay down the support and comfort that arrives in box 2.  Position the comfort layers and zip the cover.  It might take a bit of work to get the layers lined up perfectly, however, they will not shift once the bed is zipped together.  You may begin sleeping on the bed and enjoying a restful night sleep that same day.  Most sized will be a 2 man job to move, especially if going up stairs.  Check out the Dimensions below for more details.

What’s the PlushBeds Return Policy & Warranty?

PlushBeds has one of the lowest return rates in the industry because their excellent client support team works hard to find you the right fit.  There are a few options you have as a PlushBeds client if the first choice is not exactly perfect for you.  That being said, PlushBeds always backs each mattress with a 100 night trial.  If for any reason this is not the mattress of your dreams, you can return it for a 100% refund.  Here’s how it works:

  1. The trial begins when you RECEIVE the mattress (the fedex delivery day).
  2. You can sleep on it for 100 nights.  As there can be a slight break-in period, PlushBeds asks that you not initiate a return during the first 30 days.  
  3. If it’s not the mattress of your dreams, reach out to PlushBeds via their customer service portal on their website.  The customer care team will work with you to see if a different firmness layer may be appropriate.  If so, they will ship you one FREE.  They do ask for a $99 deposit on the new comfort layer that will be refunded as soon as they receive the original comfort layer.  
  4. If the new comfort layer is not perfect, reach back out to them, provide your name and order number and that’s it!  There are no questions asked!
  5. Returns: PlushBeds coordinates a donation or recycling pickup on a day of your choosing.  They handle everything and there’s nothing you have to do besides letting them know the best pickup date.
  6. Full 100% refunds (no fees!!) are issued within days of the return. 

PlushBeds doesn’t stop there!

PlushBeds covers the mattress with a lifetime warranty.  This does not include normal wear and tear, but any manufacturer defects are covered.  If there are impressions greater than 1.5 in, PlushBeds will replace your mattress for the entire time you own it.
