While testers found that the PlushBeds latex mattress didn’t completely eliminate motion transfer — that is, they could feel their partners moving around or getting out of bed — the movement wasn’t significant enough to cause sleep disturbances.

PlushBeds Botanical Bliss mattress is this California-based brand’s most popular mattress. Made from organic materials, including an organic cotton cover, a layer of organic New Zealand wool, and multiple layers of organic Dunlop latex, the mattress is sold in two firmness options: Medium and Firm. These translate to a 6 out of 10 (medium firm feel) and a 7 out of 10 (firm feel) on our firmness scale, respectively. What makes this particular mattress unique, though, is that you can further customize the firmness to your preference at home by rearranging the latex layers. The king and California king offer further customization with split layers, so each side of the bed can be adjusted to desired firmness.
PlushBeds prides itself on producing organic, eco-friendly mattresses. All of the products are GOLS and GOTS certified, and made in the U.S. using organically grown latex. The mattresses are free of harmful chemicals and naturally resistant to allergens.
We’ll provide more detailed information about the Botanical Bliss Mattress’s construction, pricing, and performance. We’ll also summarize the company’s policies on shipping, returns, and warranties to help you decide whether it’s right for you.
PlushBeds Botanical Bliss mattresses are available in two firmness levels, which they call Medium and Firm. These options translate to “medium firm” (6) and “firm” (7) feels on our firmness scale, respectively. The layers within each model can also be adjusted to slightly alter the firmness.
Watch the video below to see how the Plushbeds Botanical Bliss performed when put to the test in our lab.
Plushbeds Botanical Bliss – Medium
|Sleeper Type||Under 130 lbs||130-230 lbs||Above 230 lbs|
Side Sleepers: Overall, side sleepers up to 230 pounds rated the PlushBeds Botanical Bliss medium firm mattress highly, but some reported pressure buildup in their shoulders and hips. Heavier sleepers sink down a bit more deeply into the mattress, so they may find this firmness a bit lacking in terms of support.
Back Sleepers: Back sleepers generally found that the Botanical Bliss provides enough support to create an even, comfortable sleeping surface. Back sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds found the mattress the most comfortable, while some sleepers over 230 pounds reported a bit of sinkage in the midsection.
Stomach Sleepers: Stomach sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds are least likely to find the medium firm Botanical Bliss mattress comfortable. Although it is a great option for sleepers under 130 pounds, it doesn’t provide enough midsection support for heavier sleepers, which may throw the spine out of alignment.
Plushbeds Botanical Bliss – Firm
|Sleeper Type||Under 130 lbs||130-230 lbs||Above 230 lbs|
Side Sleepers: Although some side sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds may find the firmer Botanical Bliss mattress comfortable, most liked the medium firm option better, as it relieved pressure in the hips and shoulders more effectively. Side sleepers between 130 and 230 pounds also tended to prefer the medium firm to the firm option. For heavier side sleepers, though, the firm option provides a better blend of cradling and support.
Back Sleepers: Back sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds give the firmer option high ratings, noting that the extra firmness provided more support and they didn’t experience too much sinking. In fact, the 10- and 12-inch Botanical Bliss mattresses were most preferred by heavier individuals who sleep on their backs or stomachs, as the extra thickness provides plenty of support. Lighter back sleepers also give the firm option high marks, but they tend to prefer the medium firm option.
Stomach Sleepers: Like back sleepers, stomach sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds preferred the firmer Botanical Bliss option for its strong degree of support. Heavier sleepers may be most comfortable on the thickest mattress option (the 12-inch version) as the extra padding eliminates some of the sinking that causes misalignment. Sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds again found the medium firm mattress more comfortable than the firm.
PlushBeds Botanical Bliss is a latex mattress, made from several layers of Dunlop latex. It’s topped with a 1-inch layer of organic wool, and wrapped in organic cotton. Available in three thicknesses (9 inches, 10 inches, and 12 inches), all of the mattresses start with a 3-inch support core of HD latex; the 12-inch thick mattress has two 3-inch layers in its support core. The core is topped with additional layers of Dunlop latex that vary by thickness and firmness for comfort.
Botanical Bliss mattresses are offered in medium firm or firm options. The firmness is determined by the type of latex used in the comfort layers. The medium option uses medium soft, medium, and medium firm latex layers, while the firm mattress uses medium, medium firm, and extra firm latex layers. These layers can easily be separated to customize your mattress to your preference. For example, if you have a medium firm mattress but want it to be slightly more firm, simply remove the cotton cover and switch the medium soft top layer of latex with the medium firm layer to create a firmer sleeping surface.
Regardless of the depth and firmness that you select, PlushBeds Botanical Bliss mattresses are all made with 100% organic materials and designed to be healthy. They do not contain any harmful chemicals found in other mattresses (such as flame retardants, CFCs, lead, mercury, chloroform, and heavy metals) and are naturally antimicrobial and dust mite resistant. They also resist mold and mildew, making them an ideal option for people with allergies and concerns about toxic chemicals in their bedding.
The Botanical Bliss is an adjustable all-latex mattress constructed using organic, natural materials. An organic cover made with cotton and wool encases multiple layers of organic Dunlop latex. Some layers vary depending on the thickness you choose.
Organic Cotton and wool
2-3” Dunlop latex
3” Dunlop latex
1-2 Layers of 3” Dunlop latex
The Botanical Bliss’s price-point falls right in the middle of average all-latex mattresses. While these models tend to cost more on average than foam or coil mattresses, PlushBeds frequently runs sales and special offers to further reduce the up-front cost. Latex mattresses typically have a much longer lifespan than other types, which may add more value to your investment.
PlushBeds is available in all sizes from twin to California king, as well as twin XL. Size options also include split queen, split king, and split California king. All of the mattresses are available in three thicknesses: 9 inches, 10 inches, or 12 inches, as well as two firmness options.

Owners pay for shipping and handling, and PlushBeds will cover all other costs related to repairs or replacements.
Beginning in the 11th year, owners must pay a percentage of the original price for any defective mattress that needs to be replaced. This percentage starts at 50% in the 11th year, and increases 3% for each year after that (53% in the 12th year, 56% in the 13th year, etc.)
