Overview of PlushBeds Latex Mattresses

plushbeds trustpilor rating

Have you been searching for a new mattress that’s going to last a really long time AND is organic? If the answer is yes, you’ve probably been looking at latex mattresses for their durability and natural fibers. 

PlushBeds is a well-known mattress company founded in 2007. They pride themselves on creating high-quality, organic latex mattresses. Not only this, but their commitment to sustainability is a top-selling point as well!

They sell a range of latex mattresses, including: 

  • Organic Latex Mattress – The Botanical Bliss 
  • Hybrid Latex Mattress – The Luxury Bliss 
  • Vegan Mattress – The Natural Bliss 
  • Eco Mattress – The Eco Bliss 
  • Cooling Gel Mattress – The Cool Bliss

Overview of the Three PlushBeds Mattresses

1. Botanical Bliss Mattress

Marketed by PlushBeds as their most popular mattress, the Botanical Bliss mattress is highly customizable and available in 9, 10, or 12 inch heights.

You customize this mattress by changing around which layer you have on top, giving a softer or firmer feel. The King and California King sizes are even made using split layers, so you can have different firmness levels on each side of the bed, if you like!


  • Organic cotton cover
  • Organic New Zealand wool (acts as a non toxic fire barrier and breathable body temperature regulator)
  • Three layers of organic dunlop latex in the 9 and 10 inch mattresses
  • Four layers of organic dunlop latex in the 12 inch mattress

It says on the PlushBeds website that the mattress comes as “medium” or “medium-firm”. This is a bit confusing, as it sounds like there’s no option if you need a softer mattress. Actually, there is a soft option! You just switch or exchange the layers around. Do note that PlushBeds state that 80% of people who use this mattress prefer the “medium” option.

This brings me to my biggest gripe with the Botanical Bliss Mattress. I think the Botanical Bliss sounds like a great mattress given the materials used in its construction, but I think it’s a bit confusing to figure out exactly what to order.  I’ll try to summarize how you choose here:

plushbeds botanical bliss mattress firmness options
  • The layers of latex within a Botanical Bliss Mattress are each rated a different firmness level, as you can see in the picture above
  • The way the bed is set up in the pictures is the way the mattress comes “out of the box”
  • You can change the layers around to suit your comfort levels. You can even request PlushBeds make your mattress with, for example, two “soft” layers if you wish, or two “medium” layers, etcetera, etcetera. They can make the mattress to your requirements if you talk to them
  • Along with your 100 night sleep trial, you also have a 100 night comfort exchange, which means that should you decide you want to swap out one of the comfort layers in your first months of using the mattress, you can do it at no cost

A really cool fact about being able to change the layers around in this mattress is that you can adjust the firmness level as your needs change. When we’re younger, we tend to sleep well on firmer mattresses and ones that are a bit softer when we’re older. Latex is the most durable mattress material you can find, so if your preferences change years down the track, you won’t need to trash your mattress, you can just change one of the layers inside of it to suit your comfort. I haven’t seen this in any other mattress I have reviewed.

Who is this mattress best for?

  • people looking for a mattress with a full organic latex construction
  • couples who have different preferences in mattress firmness
  • people wanting a durable mattress that will last a number of years

Who might not like this mattress?

  • latex is a naturally bouncy and responsive material so if you like the feeling of being “hugged” by your mattress you’ll do better with memory foam (you can read my review of a fully customizable memory foam mattress here)
  • if you need strong edge support you’ll do better with a hybrid mattress which has strong wrapping around the support coils. Read on to find out about the PlushBeds hybrid below, or click here for a review of another exceptional latex hybrid mattress

2. Luxury Bliss Mattress

This is the one hybrid mattress that PlushBeds make, and it comes in one 12 inch height.


  • Organic cotton cover
  • Organic New Zealand wool (acts as a non toxic fire barrier and breathable body temperature regulator)
  • Three inches of organic dunlop latex as the comfort layer (available as medium or medium-firm)
  • 8 inches of pocket coils, with stronger gauge coils around the edge of the mattress to give better edge support

Unlike the Botanical Bliss mattress above, there is a lot less decision making involved with a purchase of the Luxury Bliss mattress. There is only one height option and two firmness options. You can still opt to have different firmness levels on each side of this mattress in the King and California King sizes, so again it’s a good option for couples.

Who is this mattress best for?

  • people who want a more traditional feeling coil support system
  • latex is a breathable product and you shouldn’t sleep hot on a latex mattress, but a hybrid has better air circulation due to the springs, so if you’re concerned about breathability this will be the most reassuring option for you (but I still think they are ALL good options)
  • if you need strong edge support, the Luxury Bliss mattress has the best edge support of the three PlushBeds mattresses
  • this mattress will also perform best of the three for motion isolation so if you share your bed with someone who tosses, turns, and keeps you awake all night, you’ll like this mattress a lot

Who might not like this mattress?

  • if you’d like something with a lower profile than 12 inches
  • if you’re looking for a full latex mattress without coils

3. Natural Bliss Mattress

The third and final mattress to examine is the Natural Bliss mattress. This is an all latex mattress, and the main point of difference with the Botanical Bliss above is that it is vegan. That means that this mattress does not contain any wool, and instead has a plant based fire barrier under the cover. It also uses talalay latex instead of dunlop latex in the comfort layer (here’s that link to the difference between the two again).

The Natural Bliss is available in three heights: 6, 8, or 10 inches, and your firmness option are soft, medium, or medium firm.


  • Organic cotton cover
  • Plant and silica based fire barrier layer (this is a proprietary PlushBeds fabric you’ll only find in this mattress)
  • The 6 inch mattress has 6 inches of dunlop core latex, no other latex layers
  • The 8 inch mattress contains a 2 inch talalay latex comfort layer as well as the 6 inch dunlop core layer
  • The 10 inch mattress contains 4 inches of talalay latex comfort layer as well as the 6 inch dunlop core layer

The Natural Bliss mattress will be an excellent choice if you are looking for a vegan mattress, with no wool.

Otherwise, in terms of quality and who it’s suited to is very similar to the factors I went through for the Botanical Bliss mattress. If you’re not bothered about whether your mattress is vegan or not, I’d recommend you go for a Botanical Bliss instead as once you get your head around the customization options you’ll be able to tailor it really well to yourself.

Key Features and Technology 

  • High-Quality Materials: PlushBed prides itself on using high-quality, organic materials that are both sustainable and biodegradable 
  • Customizable Heights and Firmness: When you purchase one of their latex mattresses you can choose from 2 levels of firmness and 3 height options 
  • Chemical-Free Fire Barrier: Unlike most other mattresses, latex mattresses use organic wool as a fire retardant, which is free of chemicals 
  • Latex Back Support: PlushBed uses organic latex harvested from trees in Sri Lanka which offers back support and buoyancy

Material Quality and Sources

PlushBed mattresses use only the highest quality materials, ethically sourced with the environment in mind. Their organic materials make the mattresses biodegradable. 

Materials commonly used in their mattresses include: 

  • Natural Talalay latex: organic latex used to create buoyancy and comfort without losing support 
  • Natural ARPICO latex: Sri Lankan botanical latex
  • Organic cotton cover: The mattresses are manufactured with GOTS-certified organic cotton which is free from pesticides 
  • Organic wool: British GOTS-certified organic wool to help with temperature regulation and control.

Comfort and Firmness Options

Each of the mattresses allows you to customize both the firmness and height!

You can choose from either a medium-firm to firm mattress. The medium-firm mattresses are designed for side sleepers, whilst the firm mattress is designed for back or front sleepers and those who are above average weight. 

You can also choose from 3 height options: Either 9 inches, 10 inches, or 12 inches.

Health and Eco-Friendly Benefits 

PlushBed’s organic mattresses have the benefit of being handmade in the US without the use of harsh chemicals. 

They also support farmers in Sri Lanka, where they source their latex from Hevea Brasiliensis trees! The use of natural materials such as latex also makes the mattresses biodegradable. 

The use of wool helps to regulate body temperature. This is great for people who sleep hot or cold or experience hot/cold flushes, such as women undergoing menopause. 

The organic wool layer also acts as a natural flame retardant. This means the mattresses do not need to use synthetic materials as flame retardants, which can be thought of as being harmful. 

Their mattresses have various organic certifications such as the GOTS certifications, meaning their wool and cotton are free of harmful chemicals. 

Customer Reviews and Feedback 

The overwhelming majority of reviews for PlushBed’s latex mattresses are positive, with a 4.6/5 star rating on TrustPilot!

Customers raved about their customer service, comfort, and overall high-quality feel. 

A few customers noted that they found the firm option a little too firm, and some people had issues with delayed shipping. 

It is also important to note that some buyers mentioned struggling to leave negative reviews; make of that what you will. 

Price and Value for Money 

PlushBeds latex mattresses are considered top of the line, and may not be the best option for budget-friendly shoppers. 

Because of their focus on high-quality materials, and sustainable, organic components, their mattresses are more expensive than other mattresses on the market. However, for the price tag, you’ll relieve quality and peace of mind. 

Their latex mattresses range from $899.00 to 4,249.00 for a Queen mattress. 

It is best to take a look at their website, as they often offer discounts on their mattresses! 

Trial Period, Warranty, and Return Policy

PlushBeds offers a 100-night trial period. In these 100 days, you can return your mattress if you are not satisfied with it. In this case, you will receive a full refund for the mattress. 

They also offer a lifetime warranty on their mattresses. This means that if there is a defect in the mattress that is not from normal wear and tear, they will provide you with a refund if it occurs within the first 10 years of its life. 

It is important to note that this lifetime warranty is not transferable, which means if you aren’t the original owner, the warranty won’t cover you! 

In some cases, you will also need to pay for the return shipping cost of the mattress. 

Expert Opinion and Recommendations

Overall, we are impressed by PlushBed latex mattresses. What stands out to us is their commitment to using sustainable, organic materials that are free of chemicals and harmful pesticides.

One of the things I like most about the range of mattresses is that they use wool as a natural fire retardant, which is rare for mattresses. 

If you do decide to purchase a PlushBed latex mattress, we recommend choosing the right firmness for your needs!

For back, or stomach sleepers, we recommend the firmer mattress option. If you are heavier, this is also a better option for you. 

If you are a side sleeper, you will probably find the medium option the most comfortable. 

Final Verdict

Overall, the PlushBed Latex mattresses are a great option for those looking to buy an organic, sustainable mattress. 

Their materials are organic certified and claim to be sustainably acquired. 

As such, these mattresses are probably not worth the price tag if these factors are not a priority for you. 

We also recommend carefully reading the returns policy, as we did note that you may be liable for return costs in some circumstances – and this can really add up. 

Keeping all these things in mind, we think the PlushBed mattresses are a worthwhile investment. With the 100-day returns policy, we think it is a pretty low-risk investment to make!
