Zenhaven and the Plushbeds Botanical Bliss mattress offer very similar natural latex mattresses. I’ve been asked to compare the two mattresses. In this article, I’ll compare the Zenhaven with the 10” Botanical Bliss mattress.
- Both use an organic cotton cover and have natural talalay latex in the comfort layer
- Both use a joma wool fire barrier
- Both are all latex mattresses
- Both have a bouncy/resilient feel and are very durable mattresses
- Plushbeds has multiple firmness options, while Zenhaven has one flippable mattress with two firmness levels in one
- The Zenhaven comfort layer is zoned to provide more support under the heavier parts of the body
- Zenhaven sells a Queen for $1,899 but consumers also pay shipping; the 10” Botanical Bliss sells a Queen for $1,999 but with free shipping
- Plushbeds uses dunlop latex in the support layer, while Zenhaven uses talalay latex
Main Construction Differences
These mattresses have a very similar construction. To me, in reality, the fact that the Botanical Bliss uses dunlop in the support layer versus talalay in the Zenhaven doesn’t make much of a difference in reality. People can read up on the main differences, but I don’t think it’s much of a difference in this case.
The fact that the Zenhaven has a zoned comfort layer is interesting, as it should mean people get more support on their hips and shoulders, where they need it most. The Botanical Bliss is not zoned.
The fact that the Zenhaven is flippable is a big difference if people really aren’t sure which firmness level they will want. With Plushbeds, people have firmness options, but they would need to know which firmness level they want before ordering. With Zenhaven, people get two firmness options once the mattress arrives because it is flippable.
Overall, the differences in construction are subtle, and these are two very similar mattresses.
Which Should People Pick?
This is a really difficult call, as the two mattresses are so similar. I would say pick the Zenhaven if people are unsure which firmness level they want or if they need extra support. The fact that the mattress is flippable means people maximize the chances of getting the firmness level for them without having to go through the hassle of an exchange. The zoned construction means people get a little extra support where they need it the most. If someone is sure of the firmness level they want, then consider getting the Botanical Bliss, as they give them four different options.
