PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Mattress Review

I was excited to try the PlushBeds Botanical Bliss because it is the first mattress anywhere near this price range that I’ve tried that actually has 100% natural latex (most mattress companies imply they do, but didn’t come anywhere close).

I knew that if the mattress feel and comfort was any good, we’d have a winner (and I think we do).  However I have a few complaints as well.

The feel is unique and won’t be for everyone, but at the same time I think a lot of people will like it.  It will also be very durable as well, so it will be a great value if you plan on having the mattress for a long time.

NOTE: The 9″ model is no longer available (the one I tested).  There is a 10″ and 13″ option now.

You will love the PlushBeds Botanical Bliss if…

  • You want a natural/organic mattress – many mattress companies will tell you a mattress is organic/natural, but really they’re lying and mixing in synthetic materials.  And when I say many, I mean MOST.  But PlushBeds is the real deal, all natural.
  • You like a foam mattress with some spring – The Botanical Bliss is natural latex, which has more spring to it than memory foam.  If you like the comfort and support of memory foam, but don’t like the “stuck in the bed” feeling, then latex is a good option.
  • You want value – PlushBeds runs their own factory (in the USA) and ships your mattress directly to your door, so they’re better than anyone at cutting out middle men and delivering great value to the customer.
  • You want to sleep cool – Latex is a great material for a mattress to sleep cool, and this checked out with my experience with the Botanical Bliss.

My PlushBeds Complaints

  • Price – though Botanical Bliss is delivery great value for a natural mattress, if you don’t value the natural part, the price is going to seem very steep.
  • If heavier, get a thicker model – I tried the 9″ Botanical Bliss, and I think being on the heavier side (~200 lbs) that I should have opted for a 10″ or 12″ model.
  • Weight – latex is HEAVY.  This is definitely the heaviest mattress I reviewed, so make sure that you consider this if you will be moving the mattress with any regularity.

Firmness and Feel

As you can see the latex makes for a nice spring to it.  This makes it easier to move around and get out of bed without feeling stuck in the mattress.

Motion Transfer

If you are sleeping with a partner, you will want to consider the motion transfer of the mattress so that you don’t disturb each other at night.  Latex generally performs quite well with this test, and the Botanical Bliss is no exception.  See the video below for my test results.


Again the key with the Botanical Bliss is that all latex is actually natural (the company imports it directly from Sri Lanka).  The 9″ model is made up of:

  • Organic cotton cover – The cotton was grown without any pesticides or herbicides, and knit (rather than woven), which is thought to make a cover more breathable.
  • 2 inches of natural Talalay latex – this latex comfort layer provides the primary comfort and support for the mattress, making it very buoyant.
  • 7 inches of ARPICO organic natural latexARPICO latex is certified to have no fillers, dyes, carcinogenic adhesives, chemicals, or pesticides

Final Recommendation

I personally really value the idea of a truly natural mattress, so based on that alone I think that PlushBeds has done a great job with the mattress.  I had a good sleeping experience, though I wish that I had gotten a 10″ or 12″ model instead of the 9″.  Overall I think if you like the feel of latex and can afford/want to pay for an all-natural mattress, PlushBeds is a great option.

4.4 Reviewer
  • Actually natural latex (a rarity)
  • Great materials and durability
  • Firmness and thickness options
  • Higher price than non-natural options
  • Very heavy/difficult to move
The PlushBeds Botanical Bliss is a 100% natural latex mattress, which is nearly impossible to find at this price point. Though the price is higher than some mattresses with a similar feel, the value with this mattress is really top notch. Overall I really enjoyed the sleeping experience, only real con would be that the mattress is very heavy and difficult to move.

  1. Hi,
    Any comments on the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss Hybrid Mattress? Deciding between that and the Avocado Hybrid. Just curious if anyone has any experience with that model. Your advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  2. My botanical bliss was wonderful for three years. In the 4th year we started having compression issues where we both sleep. Now we wake up with a backache every morning. Plushbeds will not return my calls about this problem.

    • Anna this is completely untrue. I have 3 mattresses from PlushBeds. They have the most incredible customer service and 25 warranty. Botanical Bliss is the most comfortable mattresses I’ve ever slept on. Life changing for me! You are most likely a competitor leaving trolling comments. Where is the moderator?

  3. I want to thank you for this seemingly honest review of the Plush Beds Botanical Bliss! I have been wanting to replace our current bed for years, however, my husband is more frugal than I am, lol! I have a very complicated set of back issues from 4 fusions in my cervical region and 2 in my lumbar area. I am interested in getting the Botantical Bliss in the split king with an Adjustable Base. I have very diligently been doing my research over this time frame and keep coming back to Plush Beds. Have you checked out any of the “latex” options sold through Costco by the the name of Sleep Science? Wondering if you can respond yet tonight as the current sale at Plush Beds will expire today. Also, what are your experiences with Adjustable Bases overall, if any?

    • Not sure about the Costco mattresses. Sorry I don’t have any experience with them. Watch out for their Black Friday / Cyber Monday sales if you are worried about getting the best price. Don’t have any experience with their adjustable bases but love adjustable bases in general.

  4. You should mention in your review the return policy. It is literally the worst around. The buyer is responsible for putting their mattress back into a box and taking it outside for the shipping company. You noted in your review how heavy this mattress is. And how expensive. So, if you happen to dislike it (as you can only ever tell from sleeping on it), good luck with this ridiculous return policy. If I had known this, I NEVER would have purchased this mattress. Please update your review to make it clear that the return process is a huge hassle so your other readers can make an informed decision.

  5. Hi Joe! I’m a 44 yr old male 6ft 1in 275lbs side sleeper. I have a grade 2 Spondylolisthesis At l5 s1 with stenosis. My fiancé is 42 5 ft 10 in 160lbs back sleeper with mid back pain. We want a plush top mattress what do you recommend? Thanks

  6. Thanks Joe. I went with the 10″ Botanical Bliss after I read your review and I love it. It’s without a doubt, the most comfortable mattress I’ve ever had. Maybe you should try out the 10″ and update your review?

  7. Hi Joe. I actually have the 12″ Botanical Bliss from Plushbeds and the layers did ship separately. So, you can arrange the layers at your house to change the firmness. They also have a free comfort exchange if you need to swap out the firmness of any of the layers. This is a very good quality mattress – the best I have seen. The comfort and pressure relief is extraordinary.

  8. I’ve thoroughly researched Plush Beds. Yes, they’re certified as organizations and also Greenguard Gold certified. Very impressive credentials at Plush Beds. Check it for yourself.

  9. Joe,

    do you know the difference in the natural lbliss vs the botanical bliss line with Plush beds? It looks like a $300 price difference in a 10″ cal king, and I wonder what the differences are besides the GOLS certification?
    The second question, we also like the price point of the Spindle which looks attractive, and I like the ability to adapt the firmness levels. I presume you can also do that with Plush beds? Do you have a recommendation of one over the other?



    • Hey Bob – certification and slight construction differences, though I haven’t tested the Natural Bliss myself. Spindle is unique in that the layers are shipped separately – so you can arrange them at your house to change the firmness (kind of cool, kind of really annoying). You can’t do this with Plushbeds.

  10. My gf can get a king Plush Bed 12″ Eco Bliss for the same price as a Brooklyn Bedding king. Should I get the Eco Bliss? I am not sure if I could return it…

  11. The coupon code only reduced price by $50, not $1150 as the email states. Not sure if this is a typo or simply a mistake in the coding.

  12. Joe, thanks for the email. Do you know anything about the Paramount Nature’s Spa latex mattress? We have two twin xl adjustable frames. We don’t like the warmth of the tempurpedic we’re replacing. A ll “better” furniture store carries Paramount.
    Thank you!
