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 Med-Firm. These translate to a 5 out of 10 (medium feel) and a 7-8 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 Med-Firm. These options translate to “medium” (5) and “firm” (7-8) feels on our firmness scale, respectively. The layers within each model can also be adjusted to slightly alter the firmness.
PlushBeds Botanical Bliss is a 100 percent natural 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 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 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 percent 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.

Compared to other all-natural latex mattresses, PlushBeds are significantly more expensive, but the company frequently runs sales and special offers. That said, latex mattresses typically have a much longer lifespan than other types, which may balance out some of the cost. In fact, PlushBeds includes a 25-year warranty on its mattresses, which is longer than some other manufacturer warnings.
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.

Overall, 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 disturb most sleepers.
Latex mattresses offer significantly less body-conforming than memory foam, and the PlushBeds Botanical Bliss is no different.
Sleepers don’t “sink down” into the mattress, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t offer adequate pressure relief. Overall, our testing found that the mattress offers fairly even support and cradling, regardless of body weight or sleep position.
The only exception was for side sleepers, in particular those who weighed less than 130 pounds, who had some pressure buildup on the hips and shoulders.
PlushBeds Botanical Bliss maintains good temperature neutrality, allowing sleepers to stay cool and comfortable all night.
The mattresses are constructed with naturally breathable latex to encourage airflow. The mattress’ organic cotton cover and layer of organic wool also wick away moisture, helping maintain a cool, consistent temperature.
Although PlushBeds Botanical Bliss provides significant edge support, especially compared to memory foam mattresses, it isn’t perfect.
Sleepers who like to sleep near the edge of the bed report some compression, which makes them feel as if they will roll off the edge of the bed. Individuals of all weights, but especially heavier people, also noticed some sinkage when they sat on the edge of the bed.
Because you won’t sink down into the PlushBeds Botanical Bliss as much as other mattresses, moving around on the surface is fairly easy. That said, the reduced edge support may make it more difficult for some people to get in and out of bed.
The Botanical Bliss gets high ratings for sex, as Dunlop latex naturally offers plenty of bounce, unlike memory foam mattresses. Latex is also rather quiet, allowing couples to be more discreet.
Overall, off-gassing isn’t an issue with the PlushBeds Botanical Bliss. Testers noticed some odor from the natural latex and wool right out the box (i.e., “new mattress smell”) but for most, there were no discernable odors at all within 24 hours.
Plushbeds Botanical Bliss – Medium
Side Sleepers: Overall, side sleepers of all sizes rated the PlushBeds Botanical Bliss medium mattress highly, but some reported pressure buildup in their shoulders and hips. This wasn’t as much of an issue for heavier sleepers, who were able to sink down a bit more deeply into the mattress.
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 heavier sleepers reported a bit of sinkage in the midsection.
Stomach Sleepers: Stomach sleepers who weigh more than 200 pounds are least likely to find the medium Botanical Bliss mattress comfortable. Although it is a great option for lighter sleepers, it doesn’t provide enough midsection support for heavier sleepers, which may throw the spine out of alignment.
|Under 130 lbs.||130-200 lbs.||Above 200 lbs.|
Plushbeds Botanical Bliss – Med-Firm
Side Sleepers: Although some side sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds may find the firmer Botanical Bliss mattress comfortable, most liked the medium option better, as it relieved pressure in the hips and shoulders more effectively. Side sleepers between 130 and 200 pounds also tended to prefer the medium to the firm option. For heavier side sleepers, though, the firm option provides a bit more 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 12-inch Botanical Bliss mattress was 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 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 mattress more comfortable than the medium firm.
|Under 130 lbs.||130-200 lbs.||Above 200 lbs.|
Reviewers give PlushBeds Botanical Bliss high ratings. In fact, the majority of reviewers give the mattress five stars, citing its excellent support and comfort as the reason. Many reviewers note that they wake up feeling refreshed and well-rested, without any soreness.
Several reviewers mention that the mattress feels firmer than innerspring or memory foam mattresses when you sit on them; one reviewer even described the mattress as “unforgiving.” However, that initial firmness is not indicative of comfort, as most reviewers describe the mattress as comfortable. Another theme among reviewers is the temperature neutrality. Multiple reviewers mention that the mattress stays cool, and that they don’t wake up too hot as they do with other mattresses.
Reviewers also had a lot of praise for the PlushBeds customer service team. Customers who needed to exchange their mattress report being able to do so without hassle.
