PlushBeds Botanical Bliss 10'' Mattress mattress review

Take a deeper look into our review of the Botanical Bliss mattress, including our methodology, scoring and mattress performance to help you determine if this could be the mattress for you.

Visit PlushBeds

Set up test

The Botanical Bliss mattress took us just under two minutes to unbox.

The box was stapled shut so we had difficulty opening it up. Be careful you don’t cut yourself on this staples.  This mattress was very heavy and difficult to carry. The Botanical Bliss is extremely floppy and doesn’t hold its shape well, making it very difficult to set up.

So for our setup test, PlushBeds Botanical Bliss 10'' Mattress gets a 5 out of 10.

Motion Transfer Test

Motion transfer just means how much movement you feel if your partner is moving around in the night. Obviously, you want this to be pretty minimal.

Part A - The Humans

The Mattress Advisor motion transfer test is a a two-part test. We start by asking both RJ and Asha to lie on the bed, blindfolded, and rate on a scale from 1 to 10 how much movement they felt when their partner was moving around with 10 being no movement at all.

RJ and Asha noticed minimal motion transfer for the Botanical Bliss. They gave it a collective score of 7.75.

Part B - The Wine

Next, comes our wine test. This is great visual indicator of how much motion is being transferred from one side of the bed to another.

We had RJ lie down and roll back and forth a few times. We then took a look at how much the wine inside of the glass moved.

The wine was pretty wobbly as RJ rolled around. So we gave it a 5

So for a total motion transfer score, we gave PlushBeds Botanical Bliss 10'' Mattress a 6.4 out of 10.

Edge Support Test

When choosing a mattress, you may not think to consider how much support the edge provides. But if you find yourself sleeping on the edge of your bed or use the end to get ready in the morning, you should definitely consider the edge support.

The Mattress Advisor edge support test is a two-part test.

Part A - The Shoe Test

To start, we asked both RJ and Asha to sit on the edge of the bed to tie their shoes. They rated this task on a scale from one to ten, with 10 being “extremely easy, with exceptional edge support.”

When tying their shoes, RJ and Asha noted that the edge didn’t feel very supportive. The Botanical Bliss scored a 5.5  for the edge shoe test.

Part B - The Side Test

Next, we had RJ and Asha lie on the edge of the bed in each sleeping position, side, stomach and back, to see if they could sleep comfortably in that section of the bed.

Once again, RJ and Asha found it a little difficult to lay on the edge. So for the edge support side, the Botanical Bliss scored a 6.5.

So PlushBeds Botanical Bliss 10'' Mattress gets a 6 out of 10 for edge support.

Pressure Relief Test

When shopping for a mattress, you’ll want to find something that puts minimal pressure on your hips, thighs and shoulders. Let’s take a look at how well the Botanical Bliss provides pressure relief.

We measure pressure relief by using a pressure mapping film that shows areas of high pressure. Here’s what you need to know: the cool spots are good and the warms spots are bad. The warmer the color, the more pressure is being placed on that area of the body.

We saw mainly blue and green on RJ! So we give him an 8.5.

We saw a little red in Asha’s shoulders, so we give her a 7.5.

So for a total pressure relief score, PlushBeds Botanical Bliss 10'' Mattress gets a 8 out of 10.

Spine Alignment Test

We take sleeping posture seriously. Why? Because your sleeping posture is just as important as your posture when you are awake. For every mattress we test, we take a look at how well it keeps your spine in a straight line.

We took a close up of both RJ and Asha’s backs to see the alignment. You’ll want to see a straight line from the neck all the way to the tailbone.

Both RJ and Asha’s spines were pretty straight with a slight curvature towards the base of the neck.

For spine alignment, PlushBeds Botanical Bliss 10'' Mattress gets a 8.75 out of 10.

Responsiveness Test

Responsiveness is just a fancy way of describing how well the mattress adjusts or responded to your different sleeping positions while you turn in your sleep. Responsiveness is very important when it comes to  getting comfortable on your mattress.

We had RJ and Asha lie in each sleeping position, side, stomach and back. As they changed positions and got settled in, we asked them to rate on a scale from one to ten how quickly and easily the mattress responded to their movements.

So PlushBeds Botanical Bliss 10'' Mattress gets a 7.5 out of 10 for responsiveness.

The total Mattress Advisor score for the PlushBeds Botanical Bliss 10'' Mattress mattress:

Foundations

The PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Mattress must be placed on a firm, flat surface. This includes a box-spring, platform base, slats no more the 2’’ apart, adjustable frames or even the floor. Make sure your box-spring is in good condition and can hold the weight of the mattress. An old foundation can cause the mattress to sag.

What to watch out for

  • Due to the density of the materials, the Botanical Bliss is heavier than most mattresses.
  • Although Plushbeds accepts mattress returns, it can be a bit of a hassle (compared to the ease of most bed-in-a-box brands). You will have to box the full-size mattress before they will send a carrier out to pick it up. Due to the weight and material, this is a very difficult task.

A look inside

The Botanical Bliss latex mattress is made of three all-natural, APRICO organic dunlop latex layers, and covered in an organic cotton cover:

  1. Organic knit cotton and wool cover — Compared to mass produced woven covers, the knit top layer provides more breathability and elasticity while remaining soft to the touch. This layer also includes 100% Pure New Zealand Wool. When used in the right proportions, organic wool creates a micro-climate, which assists in regulating body temperature and humidity. It is also hypo-allergenic.
  2. 10’’ (three layers) of APRICO organic dunlop latex — The organic dunlop core of the Botanical Bliss mattress is made from the sap of rubber trees. This material comfortably supports, while preventing sagging over time.

What PlushBeds Botanical Bliss 10'' Mattress customers have to say

  • “Definitely recommend this mattress! I researched a lot and found this to be the best organic, locally sourced mattress that soothes pressure points and is very comfortable. Worth every penny because of the healthy materials and comfort afforded during MUCH of my life—-6-7 hours a day sleeping—-I need comfort, support, stability, durability, organic ingredients…This mattress is GREAT!” -Sarojani
  • “Every time I get into bed, I’m amazed at how wonderful this bed makes me feel. I awake in the mornings ready to go without an ache and marvel at the way I feel wondering if this feeling is for real and will it last. It just seems too good to be true…but it is! I wish I had known about 100% latex mattresses earlier in my life. I’m 64 now so I’ve spent a lot of years on many different types of mattresses and none came close to this one.” -Deborah
  • “Didn’t realize how much the memory foam bed I’d bought from Costco was hurting my back until I began sleeping on the plush bed. I got the 10″ botanical bliss. no fumes, extremely comfortable, firm enough. And the pillows that came with are awesome. Delivery was on time, easy and quick. The bonus sheets are exquisite.” -David
