Plushbeds Botanical Bliss 12” Latex Mattress Review
(Medium or Firm)
Botanical Bliss 12’’ Mattress is an organic latex mattress. 100% natural latex mattress should be appealing for those looking for a good green mattress. After testing this mattress for some time, our team has put together a full detailed review of this natural mattress.
So does this 12 all-latex mattress live up to the expectations of a truly natural mattress or is it just another one of the new beds out there? Let’s find out starting with the construction. Please note that we tested the 12-inch model of Botanical Bliss.
What is the Construction?
The designers and manufacturers of Botanical Bliss 12’’ Organic Latex Mattress implemented an all-natural craftsmanship. This mattress basically consists of three main components; the Organic cotton cover, the Organic latex, and the Organic Wool.
Organic Cotton Cover
The cover is made of cotton material knitted to provide good airflow and moisture absorption to keep you sleeping cool, dry and comfortable. The cotton material is organic, meaning it was grown without the use of any dangerous pesticides or herbicides.
The mattress body is made of layers of organic Dunlop latex from Arpico, which is uniquely calibrated to a different firmness so that you can feel well supported. Plushbeds claims that the material combination is made and guaranteed to last for the next 25 years.
Organic New Zealand Wool
The Botanical Bliss mattress body is also made of Organic New Zealand Wool, up to 10lbs to ensure it provides good soothing support and breathes naturally to help your body maintain a well-regulated cool and comfortable temperature.

How Is the Support and Comfort?
Plushbeds Botanical Bliss mattresses are designed to provide ergonomic support and alignment, which is very useful, especially in the relief of pressure points linked to hip and shoulder pain. This mattress is customizable, allowing you to fine-tune your firmness according to your preference. Therefore, it is a good mattress for those that don’t exactly know the firmness that works for them.
The latex material is single-origin sourced in partnership with farmers to ensure the highest quality possible, which enables the company to calibrate the mattress firmness. From our personal experience with this bed, the customizable firmness of latex was practical though not easy as latex is a very heavy material. Still, it’s a good feature as the hassle of returning a bed is always more.

Does This Mattress Sleep Cool?
The mattress is made of soft, GOTS-certified organic cotton cover that is breathable good airflow and is grown without any chemicals, pesticides or herbicides.
Furthermore, the GOTS-certified organic wool material is single-sourced from New Zealand flocks, which works on regulating body temperature and humidity and breathes naturally, allowing your body to maintain a cool sleep. None of the team members experienced any sweating or overheating during sleep.

How Is the Edge Support?
Plushbeds Botanical Bliss 12’’ mattress does not have any edge foam encasement thus the edge might not be as strong as in conventional mattresses but is helpful as it allows 100% use of the sleeping surface.

Is There Motion Transfer?
Partners who plan to be using this mattress would want to know about its motion transfer, the amount of disturbance likely to be felt from one side of the bed to the other, brought about by your bed mate’s movements.
This mattress has no coils, coils are the main reason for the cause of disturbance as it transfers motion, but since this mattress has no coils, there is almost no motion transfer thus partner disturbance is next to zero. We did notice a slight movement transferred if the other partner jumps on the bed but almost none during getting in or out of bed.

Is This Mattress Good for Sex?
When buying a new mattress, most people want to know whether they would feel like they’re sinking into the mattress or lying on top of it. The bounce of the latex helps to combat any stuck-in-the-bed feeling. The bounce contributes to the mattress overall romance friendliness of the mattress as well.

How Firm Is It?

80% of customers go for the medium mattress. The firm mattress consists of medium, firm, and extra-firm layers. If you want a slightly firmer botanical bliss mattress, you can swap the top ‘medium’ layer with the middle ‘medium-firm’ layer.
You can adjust the firmness in the comfort of your home by unzipping the cover and rotating the layers.

Is It Good for Heavier People?
The 12’’ Plushbeds Botanical mattress is good for heavier people considering its thickness level of a 4th layer of 2’’ organic latex, which makes it taller and allows more firmness variations.
Other thickness levels available are the 9’’ and the 10’’ levels. The 10’’ thick mattress is made of three, 3’’ layers of organic Arpico Latex wrapped in a 1’’ organic cotton cover with up to 10lbs of organic wool batting.
The 9’’ thick Botanical Bliss mattress is made of two 3’’ layers of organic Arpico latex and one 2’’ layer of organic cotton cover with up to 10 lbs of organic wool batting.
For heavier people, we do recommend that they go with the 12” model as that is the model, we tested and can safely say that it passed the heavy people test. The 10” and 9” models might not work for heavy people.
Is It Good for Side Sleepers?
Side sleeping, according to most sleep experts, is the healthiest sleep position attributed to its spine alignment. Side sleeping aligns the shoulders, pelvis, and spine, which helps limit pressure points in the neck lower back, and other sensitive areas.
Side sleepers also enjoy better airways circulations, which is beneficial for people with sleep apnea as well as heavy snorers. Sleeping on your sides has also been associated with healthier hearts.
Therefore, side sleepers must invest in a mattress that provides enough support. Plushbeds Botanical Bliss 12’’ mattress is good for side sleepers as well because of its softness as it cushions the shoulders and hips for proper alignment.
Heavier people who sleep on their sides are recommended a firmer mattress, which the 12’’ mattress fits in as it won’t sink too deeply. Since this mattress is customizable, we recommend that side sleepers go with the softer feel of this mattress.
Is It Good for Back and Stomach Sleepers?
Lying on your back, you can feel yourself sinking into the bed, with the soft layer of latex foam working to fill in the space at your lumbar region. Even with the sinking effect, the responsiveness of the latex makes it easy for you to roll around and change positions.
Although back sleeping is uncommon, it carries certain health benefits, including natural alignment of the neck, spine, and pelvis, which minimizes aches, pains, and pressure points throughout the body.
According to our experience, the Plushbeds Botanical Bliss 12’’ mattress provided even, consistent support that conforms without excessive sagging for back sleepers. Back sleepers should also look at mattress firmness. Botanical Bliss’s mattress firmness of medium and firm levels provides good conditions for average and heavy back sleepers.
Stomach sleepers tend to prefer firm beds. The 12’’ Botanical Bliss mattress is firm enough and should be suitable for stomach sleepers as it prevents the hips sinking out of alignment with your shoulders. This mattress is firm enough to keep the spine in a nice, even line. You can adapt for a firmer configuration of the Botanical Bliss as well.
Firmness is a key consideration for stomach sleepers; though preferences vary by factors like height and body weight, most stomach sleepers say they feel most comfortable on mattresses that are medium or firmer. Botanical Bliss mattresses are available in medium and firm levels.
