Founded in 2007, PlushBeds was one of the first online bed-in-a-box companies. Today, PlushBeds has expanded its line to include a variety of mattresses as well as mattress toppers, bedding, adjustable bed frames, and other sleep accessories. This review will cover the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss, a luxury latex hybrid made with organic and sustainable materials.
Aside from the Luxury Bliss, PlushBeds also makes the Botanical Bliss and Natural Bliss all-latex mattresses, as well as the Cool Bliss, Ocean Mist, and Posture Plush memory foam mattresses. In addition, the company has a range of mattresses designed for use in sofa beds and RVs.
The Luxury Bliss is PlushBeds’ only latex hybrid mattress. It has a 12-inch profile consisting of 3 inches of organic Dunlop latex over a pocketed coil support core. This is wrapped in an organic cotton cover with a natural wool fire barrier.
The mattress is offered in two firmness levels: medium and medium firm. These correspond to a 5 and 6 out of 10 on our firmness scale.
We’ll take a closer look at the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss, discussing construction, materials, and how these affect the sleeper experience. We’ll also include practical information and user reviews to help you decide if the Luxury Bliss is right for you.

The Luxury Bliss is available in a choice of two firmness levels, medium and medium firm. We found these to equate to a 5 and a 6 out of 10, giving the mattress appeal for a wide range of sleepers.
Both models offer a responsive surface with moderate contouring and pressure relief, with sleepers mostly sleeping “on” and not “in” the mattress. The medium version allows sleepers to sink in slightly deeper. PlushBeds sells a range of mattress toppers, which can add some plushness for customers who find the mattress too firm.
In total, the mattress measures 12 inches tall. A stretchy organic cotton cover quilted with a natural Joma wool fire barrier provides a breathable, moisture-wicking surface. To avoid using adhesives, PlushBeds has stitched the cotton and wool together and uses the cover to keep the rest of the mattress components in place. PlushBeds uses textiles that are certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard.
The PlushBeds Luxury Bliss has a comfort layer made with 3 inches of natural Dunlop latex. The latex is perforated to allow for better airflow, and is certified organic by the Global Organic Latex Standard. Dunlop latex is naturally springy and gives a buoyant, responsive feel to the mattress.
An 8-inch pocketed coil support core lends stability and structure to the mattress. The coils are 15-16 gauge and the coil count for a queen is 1,057 coils, which is more than sufficient to evenly distribute body weight for most sleepers up to 300 pounds. The coils are individually wrapped, which cuts down on motion transfer when sharing the bed.

The PlushBeds Luxury Bliss is priced at $2,399 for a queen size mattress. There is no difference in price between the two firmness options.
Latex mattresses tend to be among the more expensive models, especially those that are made with organic latex. They cost more to produce, but they are very durable and tend to have an above-average lifespan.
The PlushBeds Luxury Bliss is on the steep side even for an organic latex hybrid. However, PlushBeds regularly offers generous discounts, so if you can handle delaying your purchase for a while you might be able to knock a portion off the suggested price.

Dunlop latex doesn’t conform as closely as memory foam, so it won’t be able to absorb as much motion as an all-foam mattress. Motion transfer will be more pronounced in the medium firm model, which has a slightly more responsive surface.
The individually wrapped coils in the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss mattress move independently of each other, which helps prevent some motion transfer. This reduces disruptions to your partner and is helpful when sharing the bed. That said, even the best pocketed coils will transfer more motion than a solid foam base.
The PlushBeds Luxury Bliss isolates motion on par with most hybrid models and it should be suitable for the needs of most couples, but very sensitive sleepers may prefer an all-foam mattress.
The PlushBeds Luxury Bliss provides average pressure relief, which is typical of a latex hybrid mattress.
The surface of the mattress contours slightly to the sleeper’s body, reducing pressure points in most sleepers. In the support core, the pocketed coils flex to accommodate the curves of heavier body parts such as the hips.
Since it’s a little on the firmer side and doesn’t conform as closely as some other mattresses, side sleepers under 130 pounds may experience some pressure build-up in the hips and shoulders when sleeping on the medium firm model. In turn, stomach sleepers over 230 pounds may experience added pressure in the neck and back when sleeping on the medium model, as this firmness allows for more sinkage in the hips.
Breathable materials in the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss help maintain temperature neutrality through the night. This above-average temperature regulation is to be expected from a latex hybrid mattress.
Body heat is initially dispersed through the breathable cotton and moisture-wicking wool layer. Since sleepers mostly sleep “on” and not “in” this mattress, body heat won’t get trapped around the sleeper. This is especially true of the medium firm version.
Latex is naturally breathable and the latex used in the comfort layer is aerated, allowing for heat to filter through. Finally, the pocketed coils allow plenty of room for airflow, eliminating most heat retention. If you tend to sleep hot then the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss is a very attractive choice.
Like many hybrid mattresses, the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss features a sturdy perimeter that allows full use of the mattress surface from edge to edge.
The mattress accomplishes this with a higher coil count around the perimeter, helping reinforce the edges to minimize compression when weight is applied. This means most people should be able to sleep near the edge of the bed, and even sit on the edge of the bed, without feeling like they are falling off the mattress.
Good edge support is essential when sharing the bed, especially in smaller mattresses. Mattresses with poor edge support force each partner towards the middle, whereas strong edges allow each partner to use their entire half of the bed.
People who weigh more than 230 pounds or those who often sit on the edge of the bed may prefer the medium firm version, which has a slightly firmer edge than the medium model.
Both the medium and medium firm Luxury Bliss mattresses feature a quick response to pressure that facilitates movement on top of the bed.
Because latex offers minimal conforming, it doesn’t inhibit movement like a plusher foam mattress would. The medium firm version conforms less and will provide even less resistance. In both models, the coils add some bounce that makes it easier to change sleeping positions or get in and out of bed.
Since the bed offers ease of movement and rates highly for almost all body types and sleeping positions, it is a solid choice for combination sleepers.
When it comes to sex, the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss ticks all the boxes. The bed has the bouncy, responsive surface that most couples prefer, and the reinforced edges allow couples to use the full gamut of positions. There’s no need to worry about heat retention, as the mattress has very good airflow.
The only downside is the noise. The coils are individually wrapped so they won’t produce noise to the extent of a traditional innerspring, but some couples may find the mattress is not as discreet as they would have hoped.
The PlushBeds Luxury Bliss does not contain any polyurethane foams or synthetic adhesives and will not off-gas in the traditional sense. Some customers may notice a faint rubbery smell from the latex, but this is not bothersome and should dissipate fairly quickly through the coil layer.
The mattress holds Greenguard Gold and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certifications, which guarantee it to be low in chemical emissions and free of substances that are harmful to humans.
Side Sleepers: The PlushBeds Luxury Bliss is well suited to side sleepers across the board, particularly those who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds.
The best mattresses for side sleepers offer some conforming that allows the heavier hips and shoulders to sink in just enough to reduce pressure points while still maintaining spinal alignment. In the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss, the latex contours closely enough to reduce pressure points in the hips and shoulders, while the pocketed coils form a deep and supportive cradle to keep the spine aligned.
Side sleepers who weigh less than 230 pounds may prefer the plusher model, which allows more sink. Those above 230 pounds will get more support from the firmer model.
Back Sleepers: Sleeping on the back naturally aligns the spine. Accordingly, back sleepers tend to feel most comfortable on a mattress that capitalizes on this by providing an even balance of pressure relief and support, especially in the lumbar area.
Back sleepers will find that the combination of latex and pocketed coils provides a balanced sleep surface that helps keep the spine on an even plane. The pocketed coils push back where needed, ensuring sufficient lumbar support especially in those between 130 and 230 pounds.
Back sleepers in all weight categories will likely prefer the medium firm model of the Luxury Bliss. This firmer surface will prevent sagging under the hips, preventing lower back pain.
Stomach Sleepers: Of all the sleeping positions, stomach sleepers require the firmest surface. This is to prevent the heavier hip area from sinking into the mattress, putting strain on the back and neck.
The PlushBeds Luxury Bliss has a fairly firm surface that should keep the hips aligned in most stomach sleepers. With the exception of very light individuals, most stomach sleepers will find the medium firm model more comfortable.
While the mattress does an adequate job of providing support to stomach sleepers under 230 pounds, heavier stomach sleepers may find the mattress too plush to support the weight of the hips.

We strive to give a balanced overview of how the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss mattress will perform for different sleeper types, but at the end of the day, each sleeper will have their own opinion. To that end, we’ve gathered some information on common trends that we see reported by PlushBeds Luxury Bliss customers.
The majority of sleepers choose the medium firm version, and find that it alleviates pressure points even in some lighter side sleepers. Reviewers describe the feel of the mattress as a “firm cloud,” saying they mostly sleep on top of the mattress. The PlushBeds Luxury Bliss mattress provides consistent back support that helps reduce lower back pain in many users.
Couples with different sleeper profiles often report that they have found a comfortable compromise in this mattress, and the overwhelming majority of people find that the mattress does an excellent job at isolating motion transfer when sharing the bed. As might be expected from a latex hybrid, nearly everyone says the mattress sleeps cool and has good edge support.
The only reviews available are on the PlushBeds website, with very few negative reviews. Most complaints about the mattress are from people who find the mattress too firm.
Reviews for the customer service team are generally positive. Customers appreciate the straightforward construction of the mattress and the fact it is made of natural, non-toxic, high-quality materials with no off-gassing odors. A few people note that the mattress is quite heavy and difficult to move.
