Outline For This Review

As you might already know, the Botanical Bliss is the most popular mattress from PlushBeds. As such, the majority of this review will center on that particular model. If you’d like to jump around within our review, feel free to click any of the links above. If you’d rather watch a video to learn about the bed, please see below.

We can only squeeze so much detail into videos. Keep reading for more information about PlushBeds.

Shipping & Returns With PlushBeds

We like to kick start our reviews with an intro to a brand’s company policies, just so you get an idea of what you can expect. If you end up buying a PlushBeds mattress, you’re entitled to a few great perks. For starters, the brand offers free shipping and free returns so won’t have to spend a dime on transportation costs.

Your mattress will show up at your front door in two boxes about the size of a professional golf bag. Most online mattresses ship in one box, but due to the weight of this bed’s different layers, they had to break it up into two. The unboxing process is super easy though! Check out how quickly Wes and Johnny G got the job done.

Next, you’ll be given a 100-night risk-free trial so you get a chance to break in your mattress, and confidently decide if it’s right for you or not. If you decide to return it, reach out to customer service and they’ll get the ball rolling on your refund.

If you do decide to keep your PlushBeds mattress, you’ll receive 25 years of warranty coverage, which is pretty generous compared to the other policies we’ve seen. We appreciate when a brand whole-heartedly stands behind their product.

Buying The Botanical Bliss Mattress

Prices for PlushBed’s Botanical Bliss mattress vary depending on the size you order, and the thickness. They are usually running a discount on their website, but it will change from time to time. Below is a look at the general selling price for the 10″ Botanical Bliss mattress:

SizePrice (MSRP)
Twin / Twin XL$1,300
Full$1,700
Queen$1,800
Split Queen$2,200
King / Cal King$2,100
Split King / Cal King$2,300

You can usually purchase the 9″ queen mattress for $1,500, the 10” queen mattress sells for around for about $1,800, and the 12″ bed sells for for around $2,200. We think PlushBeds lands somewhere in the middle between budget beds, and luxury mattresses. This isn’t the best bed for somebody on a ramen noodle budget, but we’ve certainly come across pricier ones too.

What Is The Botanical Bliss Bed Made Of?

PlushBeds’ Botanical Bliss mattress is about as close as you can get to sleeping on nature without having to step foot outside. All of the materials inside the bed are ethically sourced from sustainable forests and plantations who are in accordance with standards set by several environmental compliance organizations.

  • Organic Dunlop Latex — The Botanical Bliss Mattress contains three or four layers (depending on the mattress thickness you choose) of organic Dunlop latex foam from Arpico. Natural latex is antimicrobial, meaning its resistant to mold, mildew, dust mites, and other annoying household allergens. The latex is GOLS certified and OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified, ensuring the foam is high quality and 100% non-toxic.
  • Organic Cotton — The cover is made with organic cotton, which was grown in the USA without the use of pesticides or herbicides. It’s breathable, soft-to-the-touch, and GOTS certified.
  • Organic New Zealand Wool — Above the latex foam, but underneath the organic cotton cover is a layer of organic wool, ethically sourced from farms in New Zealand and certified by GOTS.

PlushBeds lets their customers pick the height and firmness of their mattress to accommodate a wider range of sleepers. With that being said, the exact construction of your mattress will vary depending on the bed’s thickness, and firmness level. You have the choice between a 9”,10”, or 12” bed at a Medium or Medium-Firm level.

Regardless of the firmness level or thickness you choose, each mattress will start with two 3” slabs of organic latex foam. The third layer is either 2” or 3” of latex foam, again, depending on the thickness you choose. The stacked layers provide ample support and act as a solid foundation for the rest of the mattress.

If you go for the 12” thick bed, the next layer will be yet another slab of organic latex foam. Otherwise, the second layer from the top consists of a hefty amount of wool — about 10lbs of it, actually. Which is around three times more than other brands who utilize wool in their beds. So you can attribute a bulk of the bed’s comfort to that plush layer of soft New Zealand wool.

Finally, for a little extra coziness to top off the mattress is a 1” organic cotton cover that’s soft enough to sleep on (although, we usually advise against this. Especially if you have any messy pups or little ones running around).

These mattresses come available in a wide range of sizes: twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, CA king, split queen, split king, and split CA king. We appreciate how they offer split versions along with standard versions of beds — and it’s pretty uncommon to see a split queen mattress. So it’s safe to say we were pretty impressed when we saw that PlushBeds offers this option.

Caring For The Cover

We’ve seen several beds that are equipped with a machine washable cover, like the Yogabed mattress and Novosbed, but unfortunately, that’s not the case with the Botanical Bliss mattress. In the event of a spill from your early morning coffee or late night wine spill, you’ll have to spot clean the stain with a mild detergent and warm water.

Make sure to dab the material, rather than scrub. Also, be careful to not get the mattress too wet or you might risk damaging the wool and foam.

What A PlushBeds Mattress Feels Like

Most people are familiar with memory foam mattresses, but latex foam is a total different ballgame. It’s a little bouncy and extremely responsive — especially when it comes to this bed because it’s stacked with latex foam layers. Botanical Bliss feels very supportive, but at the same time, feels nice and plush when you lay down. It’s almost like you’re weightless or floating — it’s pretty nice.

As we mentioned before, this bed comes in two different firmness levels: Medium and Medium-Firm. You’re also able to customize the firmness levels by rearranging the latex foam layers. A whopping 80% of people have picked their Medium model, so that’s the one we’ll mainly be discussing here.

The latex foam pieces are labeled and will start with Medium-Firm on the bottom, Medium in the middle, and a Soft layer at the top. If you want to make your Medium firmness mattress feel a little firmer, switch the Soft layer with the Medium layer, so the Medium slab of foam is at the top. The same process applies to the Medium-firm mattress, and the 12” models of each bed will come with four layers which means even more firmness variations.

We have our own way of rating firmness levels here at the Slumber Yard, but we agreed with PlushBeds that the Medium model feels like a medium firmness, and the Medium-firm model feels like medium-firm. Do keep in mind, though, weight plays a part in how soft or firm a mattress feels, which we’ll get into later in the post.

Analyzing Sleeper Types

You probably aren’t a mattress nerd like the team members here at The Slumber Yard where we talk about sleeper type on a daily basis, but it’s definitely something you’ll want to take into consideration when you’re looking for a mattress. If you’re a side sleeper, you’ll want a softer bed to provide pressure relief to the curves of your body. For back and stomach sleepers, firm beds are more accommodating because they prevent your back from sagging into the mattress, keeping your spine in a neutral alignment.

Since this mattress is available in both medium and medium-firm with adjustable firmness levels, we think it’s a suitable mattress for all sleeper types. We really appreciate it when a brand offers multiple firmness options to appeal to different types of people, and PlushBeds took that a step further with even more customizable possibilities. Our only caveat, however, may be for petite side sleepers. A medium could be a little too firm for petite side sleeping individuals who would benefit most from a softer mattress to cradle their curves. If you identify with this kind of sleeper, take a look at our best soft beds list for our favorite plush mattresses.

Best Body Types For Botanical Bliss

Just like clothes, mattresses are not one size fits all. If you’re petite to medium sized, you can usually get away with sleeping on any mattress. If you’re an individual who weighs 250 lbs +, however, you might want to look into a hybrid mattress which can provide more support than an all-foam bed. Since PlushBeds’ Botanical Bliss mattress is constructed using only latex foam, we don’t recommend this bed for heavy folks. If you identify with this body type and you’re dead set on buying it, definitely opt for the 12” option. Otherwise, take a look at our post on the best mattresses for overweight people.

The Bed Sleeps Temperature Neutral

Mattress brands have a habit of claiming their beds sleep cool when, even when they don’t incorporate any type of cooling technology to actively cool their customers down. On PlushBeds website, they say the Botanical Bliss mattress sleeps cool because of the temperature regulating latex foam and the moisture absorbing organic cotton in the cover.

Although latex and cotton are breathable materials, this mattress doesn’t necessarily sleep cool. We wouldn’t say it sleeps hot either, though — it’s more temperature neutral.

Will Couples Like This Bed?

If you share a mattress with somebody, you’ll want to consider few extra key things the average mattress shopper may not need to think about. First is edge support, and motion isolation is second. If you’ve ever been pushed to the edge of the mattress (you definitely have if your S.O is a kicker) and felt like you were going to roll right off the side, the mattress probably didn’t have very great edge support.

Unfortunately, we think the Botanical Bliss mattress fell short in the edge support category. We didn’t feel very sturdy when we laid on the edge of the bed. Motion isolation, however, did pretty decent. Latex foam isn’t as good as memory foam at deadening movement, but it still passed our trusted water glass test.

PlushBeds Reviews: Verdict

To sum up our general thoughts on PlushBed’s Botanical Bliss mattress, we think it’s one of the more eco-friendly mattresses on the market, up there next to the Birch mattress and Avocado mattress. We appreciate their efforts to be environmentally conscious, and we know a lot of consumers will too. It’s also uncommon to see a mattress that’s so customizable, and offered in so many different sizes and thicknesses.

Overall, there’s a lot of value in this mattress and we’d recommend it to shoppers who will thoroughly enjoy its natural and organic qualities.

That’s all for us folks, and we appreciate you for stopping by The Slumber Yard. Hopefully you found this information helpful.
