PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Review - Must Know The Facts

Review by Andy David
Mattress expert Updated Jan 2020

Summary

  • Botanical Bliss is best for average weight back and stomach sleepers. Heavy sleepers over 250 lbs get better support on Luxury Bliss. Most side sleepers get better pressure relief with the optional topper on Avocado Green.
  • The mattress has many strong industry certifications, including GOLS, GOTS, and GreenGuard Gold. These certifications are awarded to less than 1% of mattresses on the market. All the materials are certified as organic.
  • Full latex mattresses are heavy and difficult to move once unboxed. People who want to move homes or return the mattress will find Botanical Bliss hard to move and repackage. PlushBeds Luxury Bliss is an easier to move alternative.

Organic Features

Botanical Bliss is a certified organic mattress that ships in a box. It is made from 100% natural materials, including organic Dunlop latex, cotton, and wool. The eco-friendly materials are from sustainable sources.

The mattress has many strong certifications. These include GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard), GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard), and GreenGuard Gold. Few mattresses at this price point have as many industry-leading certifications.

Organic materials make Botanical Bliss dust-mite resistant and hypoallergenic. It is a good choice for people with chronic breathing problems like asthma. The mattress is non-toxic and free from chemical flame retardants, heavy metals, and formaldehyde.

Consider before buying:

Botanical Bliss is a natural latex mattress made from organic cotton, wool, and latex. Customers can rearrange the 3 latex layers to change the firmness and feel. The mattress is available in 2 standard firmness options: medium and medium-firm.

Organic latex is responsive and reacts quickly to pressure. This is unlike memory foam that slowly contours to the body’s curves. 100% natural latex mattresses work best for average weight back and stomach sleepers.

Full latex mattresses are heavy and difficult to move or repackage for returns. Shoppers who move homes frequently should consider the more lightweight Luxury Bliss hybrid mattress.

Who is the mattress best for?

  • People Who Want Natural Materials – Botanical Bliss is made from 100% organic materials. This includes organic cotton, wool, and latex. It is a good choice for shoppers looking for a non-toxic, eco-friendly mattress.
  • Back Sleepers – Most back sleepers will enjoy the responsive, floating feel of organic latex. The mattress contours to the lumbar region and supports the lower back. Many sleepers will enjoy back pain relief in this position.
  • Stomach Sleepers – Lightweight and average weight stomach sleepers will get good comfort and support. The mattress is supportive enough to keep stomach sleepers afloat. But heavy stomach sleepers should choose a more supportive hybrid mattress like Luxury Bliss.
  • People Who Want Long-Term Durability – Botanical Bliss is made in the USA from high-quality, certified organic materials. The organic latex is more durable than memory foam. Customers benefit from a 25-year warranty as standard.

Who should avoid this mattress?

  • Value Shoppers – Organic latex is more expensive than memory foam. $1,449+ for queen-size is too much for people on a low budget. But compared to in-store natural latex beds, Botanical Bliss is a great value.
  • Lightweight Side Sleepers – The medium firmness option works best for side sleepers. But most lightweight side sleepers find latex too firm. Softer memory foam mattresses and latex mattresses with optional toppers like Avocado Green work better.
  • Strict Side Sleepers – Strict side sleepers can get better pressure relief on memory foam mattresses like Nectar. Organic latex lacks the close body-hugging feel of foam. But people who like a responsive feel can find decent comfort on the medium firmness option.
  • People Who Move Rooms/Homes – Botanical Bliss is a very heavy mattress once assembled. In fact the courier ships it in two boxes due to the weight. People who need to move the mattress regularly should choose a lighter bed like Luxury Bliss.

Back Pain Relief

  • Back sleepers find Botanical Bliss a good option for back pain relief. There is enough lumbar support to prevent lower back pain. The “soft yet firm” feel of organic latex also provides good pressure relief for the upper back.
  • Side sleepers stay afloat and enjoy good spinal alignment. This is key to preventing back pain. But heavy side sleepers over 250 lbs can get better back support on a hybrid mattress like Avocado Green or Luxury Bliss.
  • Lightweight and average weight stomach sleepers will stay afloat on Botanical Bliss. There is enough support to prevent back and neck pain. But heavy stomach sleepers will need the extra support that a hybrid mattress provides.

Side Sleepers

  • Average weight and heavy weight side sleepers get good pressure relief. The mattress slightly contours to the curves of the body to protect the hips and shoulders. Most side sleepers report hip and shoulder pain relief.
  • Lightweight side sleepers can find organic latex too firm. The material does not hug the body or give as much pressure relief as memory foam. Softer mattresses like Nectar work better for lightweight side sleepers.
  • Heavy side sleepers may need a hybrid memory foam or hybrid latex mattress. This will provide good pressure relief and give plenty of back support. Heavy people considering Botanical Bliss should choose the 12-inch height option.

Couples

  • The mattress has a responsive, springy feel that reacts quickly to pressure. This makes Botanical Bliss easy to move around on. Couples who are combination sleepers can switch positions without feeling “stuck in the mud”.
  • The edge support is average due to the natural latex material. Botanical Bliss is not the best mattress for couples who like to spread out in bed. Hybrid mattresses with pocket coils like Luxury Bliss have better edge support.
  • The motion isolation is decent and better than on innerspring mattresses. But memory foam mattresses like Nectar provide better motion isolation. Couples who toss and turn may prefer a memory foam mattress.
  • Botanical Bliss is available in split firmness. Customers can choose from Split Queen, Split King, and Split Cal King. This gives a different firmness on both sides of the mattress (useful for some couples).

Cooling

  • Organic latex is temperature neutral and never overheats. This makes Botanical Bliss a good option for hot sleepers. A certified organic cotton cover provides good breathability and helps to wick away sweat.
  • Hybrid latex mattresses like Luxury Bliss provide better airflow. The use of pocket coils means air can flow freely throughout the mattress. Hot sleepers can get better cooling on a hybrid latex mattress.

Heavy People

  • Botanical Bliss is good for slightly overweight people. The 12-inch height and medium-firm option works best. But heavy weight sleepers over 250 lbs can get better support on a hybrid latex mattress like Avocado Green.
  • Certified organic latex is more durable than memory foam. There is less chance of the material sinking and sagging over time. Botanical Bliss is perfect for heavy people looking for a long-term investment
  • Heavy stomach sleepers over 250 lbs will need better support. A hybrid mattress will ensure the hips and abdomen stay afloat to prevent back pain. The more affordable Luxury Bliss is perfect for heavy stomach sleepers.

FAQs

Botanical Bliss is a good mattress for back pain. Organic latex provides great lumbar support and keeps the body afloat. Back sleepers in particular will benefit from back pain relief.

The mattress works well for most side sleepers. Organic latex gives enough cushioning and pressure relief to protect the hips and shoulders. Lightweight side sleepers usually need a softer memory foam mattress.

Botanical Bliss is available in 2 firmness options: medium and medium-firm. Medium is about 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale. Medium-firm is 7 out of 10.

The mattress comes in 3 height options. These are 9-inch, 10-inch, and 12-inch. The 10-inch thickness is suitable for most people. But heavy weight sleepers should choose the 12-inch height.

Organic latex is a temperature neutral material. It does not heat up and cause sweating like memory foam. This makes Botanical Bliss a good option for hot sleepers.

Customers can sleep on the mattress after the layers have been assembled. But it is best to wait up to 24 hours to allow the latex to regain its shape. This will provide the best comfort and support.

Botanical Bliss is a 100% natural mattress. All the materials are certified organic. The mattress is made from organic latex, cotton, and wool.

The mattress is made in the USA from high-quality organic latex. Customers can expect the mattress to last at least 7 years. Lightweight sleepers will get more use than heavy weight sleepers.

There will be a minor odor on unboxing the layers. This is the natural smell of organic latex. Any slight odor will soon disappear (placing in a well-ventilated room helps).

Returns can sometimes be difficult with PlushBeds. The company only provides curbside collections. The mattress must also be re-packaged before collection.

Botanical Bliss works with most bed bases. Metal frames and solid platforms are the best choices. But adjustable bases are also suitable.

Shoppers wanting a good quality, 100% organic mattress should consider Botanical Bliss. It is more affordable than in-store brands and has strong industry certifications. But the mattress is very heavy to move once unpacked.

Key reasons to buy and not buy:

  • Certified Organic Mattress – Botanical Bliss is a GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) certified organic latex mattress. It is eco-friendly, non-toxic and a good option for people with allergies.
  • Heavy To Move After Unboxing – Like all 100% latex mattresses, Botanical Bliss is difficult to move after unboxing. People who need to move homes or rooms may prefer the more lightweight Luxury Bliss mattress.
  • Good Quality & Durable – The mattress is made in the USA from high-quality Dunlop latex. The material is built to last and more durable than memory foam.
