In this PlushBeds review, I will have a look at the mattresses of this firm that claims that they focus on organic and natural materials in their Latex mattresses.
They have 3 models in this Organic latex category and I will have a look at all three here.
What do The PlusBeds Latex mattress models have in common
All the models have a few things in common and other things are more specific to the model you are looking for. Here is what they have in common

Let’s have a better look a the different models and how they each have their own specifics to help you find your perfect organic latex mattress.

What I like about the PlushBeds(Back to Top)
What I also like sofar is that after purchasing a PlushBeds mattress you have a 100-day trial and free return.
This in combination with a 25-year warranty makes it, although high in price, a very good deal in my opinion. Have you ever had a mattress that lasted 25 Years? I have not.
Here you can have a look at the comparison of the main features of these 3 Organic latex models they carry.
Types of Latex in PlushBeds(Back to Top)
Let’s dig a little deeper into the used latex in these natural latex mattresses and see what they are and where they come from.
This Latex is found in the Botanical Bliss and Luxury Bliss models
This latex comes from the Arpico rubber tree plantation in Biyagama Shri Lanka. They have about 5.5 million rubber trees on the plantation and are Gols certified by the CU. Control Union is the largest European organic regulator.
Here is a video of the Arpco Latex firm that shows how latex foam is made
This is found in the Natural Bliss models. (http://www.talalayglobal.com/)
This type of latex comes from the Hevea Brasileinsis tree and it is not just a different type of latex. The name comes actually from how the latex is processed.
After this, it is moved to Shelton, CT where it is processed. The Talalay latex is Oeko-Tex certified and according to their company website, this is the highest standard.
Benefits of Latex mattresses(Back to Top)
All latex mattresses have these benefits, but PlushBeds latex mattresses have the added benefit of being organic and thus contain no chemicals. Here are the main benefits of a latex mattress.
- Reduce motion transfer
This means that you can turn over without disturbing your partner.
- Temperature neutral
This means that you do not have hot and cold spots.
- Firmness option
This option will help you find the firmness and model that will support the way you sleep the best.
Is PlushBeds a good mattress?(Back to Top)
Overall the PlushBeds is a high-quality mattress with many pros.
It is, however, not easy to answer this question if the PlushBeds is a good mattress for everyone because like anything else it depends on a few things.
In my reviews, I found that most people who sleep on their stomach do not like a latex mattress in general because of its firmness.
For all other types of sleeping like back or side sleepers, this is a great option.
How to choose your PlushBeds Mattress(Back to Top)
Depending on if you choose for a Botanical Bliss, Luxury bliss or Natural Bliss there are several options to choose from and you actually put together your custom made natural bed.
Options to choose from are:
Sizes: Twin, Full, Queen, King, Cal. King and many sizes in between
Firmness: Soft, medium and medium firm.
Thickness: 6, 8, 9, 10 and 12 inches.
I read on a forum that it is best to choose a thicker option if your weight is a little higher.
Why opt for PlushBeds?(Back to Top)
Why would you opt for a Natural Latex bed from PlushBeds?
After reading a ton of review on their website, that I always take with a grain of salt, and many other sites and even on some forums I can only come to the conclusion that a PlushBeds is a complete natural bed that contains no chemical materials like other brands and types of mattresses.
We sleep or at least try to, 8 hours a day that is 1/3 of our life. Sleeping on a not natural mattress means that our skin also absorbs the chemicals in these mattresses.
Besides that point, it is very important to have a good night’s sleep to recover from the things we do in the day time. \
By sleeping on a good mattress and trying to make our bedroom free of any distractions like a TV or Phone we can give our bodies the necessary time to recover.
Pros and Cons(Back to Top)
Although it is hard to judge a mattress since we all have a different opinion about soft or firm and how deep we sink in our bed I have to come to the final pros and cons of the PlushBeds mattresses.
Support is very good in most positions although a stomach sleeper should opt for a little softer model.
Sleep temperature is a subject that many people think is very important and the PlushBeds sleep very cool in general.
The organic way the beds a built is a very important factor in my opinion. Organic materials and natural woods are both parts of their production.
Looking at the durability I can only answer that with that it comes with a 25-year warranty.
The price, compared to the quality is reasonable.
This is almost a must-have bed for people with allergies or that do like to stay away from harmful chemicals.
When sleeping with a partner there might be a little motion transfer which means that your partner might be disturbed when you move a lot.
The firmness of a latex mattress means that you will not “sink” very deep in the mattresses compared to a memory foam mattress.
You need some time to get used to this type of mattress if you never had one before.
Summary(Back to Top)
Overall the PlushBeds mattresses are a good mattress with good comfort and support. Very nice for people who like to sleep “cool” with the built-in feature of the airflow that it comes with.
The price is a, according to some people, a little steep but I have a different opinion about that.
People buy an expensive car that they sometimes not even use every day, but for a mattress that they use 8 hours a day, and this is 1/3 of their lives, they are not willing to pay a little more.
