Latex Mattress Feel and Firmness
How firm is the Botanical Bliss mattress?
The PlushBeds Botanical Bliss 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 Botanical Bliss Mattress from PlushBeds 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.
The latex foam pieces are labeled and are layered in this order:
- Top: Soft
- Middle: Medium
- Bottom: Medium-Firm
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. 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.
What Does PlushBeds Feel 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.
Botanical Bliss Bed Materials And Design
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.
- 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 it’s 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.
- Mattress 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, 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.
PlushBeds Reviews 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.
- Side Sleepers
If you’re a side sleeper, you’ll want a softer bed to provide pressure relief to the curves of your body. As such, we think most side sleepers will like PlushBeds in a medium firmness. 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.
- Back and Stomach Sleepers
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. With that being said, this PlushBeds mattress is great for back and stomach sleepers because it’s available in both medium and medium-firm profiles.
- Combo Sleepers
If you switch positions during the night, you’ll likely want to stick with the medium version of the mattress, and adjust the layers according to your liking once you test it out. Your most accommodating firmness may be right in the middle, but it may also depend on the side you predominately sleep on.
PlushBeds Mattress Body Type Analysis
Just like clothes, mattresses are not one size fits all. Here’s how this PlushBeds mattress will feel depending on your body type
- Petite To Average Body Types
If you’re petite, most beds will work out for you, but they might feel firmer than they would to an average or heavy individual. That’s because your body puts less pressure on the bed, making it feel a little firmer than expected. Folks who weigh in between 150-230 lbs will also get away with almost any bed, and beds typically feel true to their advertised firmness profile.
- Heavy Body Types
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 the 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.
How Much is a Botanical Bliss Mattress?
Prices for the PlushBeds 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″ PlushBeds Botanical Bliss mattress:
|Twin / Twin XL||$2,699|
|King / Cal King||$3,499|
|Split King / Cal King||$3,698|
You can usually purchase the 9″ queen mattress for $2,700, the 10” queen mattress for around $3,000, and the 12″ bed for around $3,400. 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.
Botanical Bliss Mattress Performance
The cool thing about latex foam is that’s it’s made with small holes in the layers. This gives latex foam a leg up on the competition in terms of temperature regulation.
Mattress brands have a habit of claiming their beds sleep cool even when they don’t incorporate any type of cooling technology to actively cool their customers down. On the 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.

What is edge support on a mattress? Why does it even matter? Edge support is simple –– it’s how strong the edge of the mattress is. This matters for times when you lay down or sit on the edge of the mattress. The last thing you want is sliding off the edge. All-foam mattresses like Tempur-Pedic tend to have weaker wedge support. Mattresses with coils or reinforced edges perform the best.
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.
In terms of motion isolation, the Botanical Bliss bed did pretty decent. Latex foam isn’t as good as memory foam at deadening movement, but it still passed our trusted water glass test.
Is the Botanical Bliss a good mattress for couples?
If you share a mattress with somebody, you’ll want to consider a few extra key things the average mattress shopper may not need to think about. First is edge support, and motion isolation is second.
PlushBeds Mattress Review Verdict
To sum up our general thoughts on the PlushBeds mattress reviews, 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.

How Will My PlushBeds Mattress Arrive?
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.
- PlushBeds vs Avocado Green Mattress
PlushBeds and Avocado are often compared since they’re both all-natural latex mattresses. However, the comparisons tend to end there. While the PlushBeds mattress is made entirely of foam and is suitable for all sleeper types, Avocado is a hybrid construction and works best for back and stomach sleepers. In terms of price, you’ll pay much more for PlushBeds ($2,999 for a queen) than an Avocado ($1,399).
- PlushBeds vs Casper Mattress
Both PlushBeds and Casper are all-foam mattresses, have a medium firmness rating, and are pretty responsive. Also, both mattresses work for all types of sleepers. But there are also a number of differences between the two beds. As you know, PlushBeds beds are organic and natural, but Casper mattresses are not. PlushBeds have a supportive and bouncy feel, while Casper has a classic neutral-foam feel. Finally, PlushBeds are far more expensive than Casper, which cost $1,095 for a queen.
PlushBeds offers many different mattresses including RV mattresses and sofa bed mattresses. They also sell different bedding products like sheets, pillows, and wool comforters, and adjustable bed frames.
The Botanical Bliss mattress actually offers two firmness options: (1) Medium and (2) Medium-Firm. Neither of them are the firmest options out there. But the Medium-Firm option is more suitable for back and stomach sleepers. People who want a plusher feel should go with the Medium option.
Botanical Bliss is made with three layers of certified organic latex foam and a cover made with organic cotton.
We like PlushBeds mattresses for their quality and comfort. And most importantly, their eco-friendly materials. Their mattresses are made from eco-friendly latex foam layers, which tend to be naturally cooling and very responsive.
