PlushBeds is an online "bed-in-a-box" mattress brand that first launched in 2008. The company specializes in mattresses, pillows, and other products made with organic and natural latex. This review will take a closer look at the Luxury Bliss, PlushBeds' only latex hybrid mattress model.
The Luxury Bliss is constructed with a comfort layer of GOLS- and USDA-certified organic Dunlop latex. The support core consists of individually pocketed coils, and the cover is made from GOTS-certified organic stretch cotton. Altogether, the Luxury Bliss measures 12 inches thick. PlushBeds offers two firmness levels for the mattress, medium (5) and medium firm (6).
In addition to the Luxury Bliss, PlushBeds offers two all-latex mattresses. The organic-certified Botanical Bliss and vegan-friendly Natural Bliss are both available in multiple thickness settings and firmness levels, and you can swap out comfort layers to adjust how these beds feel. They may be more suitable if you prefer less responsiveness and more conforming from your mattress, but the Luxury Bliss is optimal for people who like an even body contour with a bit of extra bounce.
Our PlushBeds Luxury Bliss review will take a close look at construction and material composition, prices, and performance ratings. We'll also see how this mattress stacks up with other PlushBeds models and provide an overview of the company's shipping, return, and warranty policies.

How Much Is the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss Mattress?
The PlushBeds Luxury Bliss costs the same regardless of which firmness level you choose. The other two PlushBeds' latex mattresses – Botanical Bliss and Natural Bliss – have comparable sticker prices, as well. These price-points are all very affordable compared to other latex hybrids, especially models with organic materials. The average hybrid model costs between $1,600 and $2,200 in a queen size.
There are no add-ons for the Luxury Bliss, but product bundling options are occasionally available. Shipping is free for all orders within the contiguous U.S. and returns are free during the 100-night sleep trial, as well.

How Does the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss Mattress Feel?
When lying on the Luxury Bliss, the first thing you'll probably notice is how responsive the surface feels. This is a natural property of latex. The material conforms to the body much like polyfoam or memory foam, but you won't experience as much sinkage. The coils also contribute to the bounciness of this mattress. Regardless of the firmness level you choose, the mattress feels very stable and supportive. However, those who share their bed with a partner will notice some motion transfer across the surface whenever their co-sleeper moves around or gets in and out of bed.
Luxury Bliss models with a medium (5) feel provide a balance of contouring and support. You won't sink too much, but the latex conforms closely enough to cushion the body and alleviate pressure in certain areas. The medium firm (6) feel does not offer the same level of conforming, but it feels a bit sturdier – making this firmness level optimal for back and stomach sleepers, people who weigh more than 230 pounds, and others who typically require more reinforcement.
What Is the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss Made Of?
The Luxury Bliss begins with a 3-inch comfort layer made of organic Dunlop latex. This material has been certified by the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS), which is considered one of the foremost authorities for organic mattress materials. The latex is ventilated with tiny holes to ensure steady airflow near the surface of the mattress. The feel of this material will somewhat depend on whether you've chosen a medium or medium firm model, but in either case, the surface will contour a bit.
The support core features 8-inch pocketed coils, which – along with the latex – contribute to the Luxury Bliss's ultra-responsive feel. The coils are also tall and thick enough to protect the edges against excessive sinkage. The interior of the support core makes use of slightly thinner coils, while coils along the perimeter are thicker for added reinforcement.
The entire mattress is encased in a cover made from organic cotton certified by Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), an organization held in equally high regard as the GOLS. The fabric is very soft and stretchy, as well as breathable. A fire layer made of GOTS-certified organic wool is attached to the cover. The cover combined with the fire barrier adds an extra inch to the bed's overall profile.
Below, you'll find a full breakdown of all the materials used in the Luxury Bliss.

3" GOLS-certified organic, ventilated Dunlop latex

Does the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss Isolate Motion?
The medium and medium firm Luxury Bliss models each provide good motion isolation. The latex can absorb a fair amount of movement from you and your sleep partner, and should reduce surface-level motion transfer to a noticeable extent. However, the natural responsiveness of latex will create a bounce effect whenever you change positions or get in and out of bed, which in turn may generate some motion transfer and disrupt your partner's sleep.
The Luxury Bliss is on par with other latex hybrids when it comes to motion isolation. Memory foam is considered one of the best materials for eliminating motion transfer because it slowly responds to the body and produces little to no bounciness. The springy feel of latex offers many benefits for sleepers – less sinkage, for one – but this also means the material will underperform in this category compared to materials like memory foam.
On a positive note for couples, the Luxury Bliss is mostly silent when bearing weight. The coils may begin to squeak after you've slept on the mattress for a few years, but we don't expect too many noise-related sleep disturbances to occur.
Does the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss Sleep Cool?
The Luxury Bliss sleeps exceptionally cool for a few reasons. The pocketed coils circulate air to help the interior maintain a comfortable temperature, while the ventilated latex and breathable organic cotton ensure steady airflow near the surface. Latex may absorb and trap heat for some, but not nearly to the same extent as memory foam or polyfoam – especially when the latex is ventilated. If you tend to sleep hot on a bed with foam layers, then the Luxury Bliss should be a much more comfortable alternative.
However, people who weigh more than 230 pounds may sink a bit deeper on Luxury Bliss models with medium feels compared to their medium firm counterparts. As this occurs, they may find their surface airflow somewhat restricted, which can lead to excessive warmth. These individuals may want to consider the medium firm feel for their mattress.
Will It Sag Along the Edges?
The Luxury Bliss is reinforced with 8-inch pocketed coils, which are zoned with thicker coils along the edges to create more perimeter support. You may notice some sinkage when sitting or lying near the edges of the mattress, though getting on and off the bed should be fairly easy and most people will feel relatively secure sleeping close to the perimeter. Thanks to the natural durability of latex, the Luxury Bliss should maintain fairly stable edges over time, so you probably won't need to worry about excessive sagging. That said, you'll feel a bit more sinkage on the softer models.
Is It Good for Sex?
Rating: 4/5 (Medium) and 5/5 (Medium Firm)
Suitability for sex is one area where the Luxury Bliss's firmness levels differ, though both feels should be adequate (if not great) for most couples. Generally, the best mattresses for sex offer a noticeable amount of responsiveness on the surface, as well as a decent contour for comfortable traction. The Luxury Bliss checks both of these boxes, but the medium feel may sink slightly deeper, which can restrict movement during sex. The medium firm feel provides more bounce-back, so you and your partner shouldn't have any movement issues on models with this firmness level. Additionally, the mattress is fairly quiet for a hybrid and should offer a discreet surface for amorous activities.
What About Off-gassing?
An initial odor is common for all mattress types, though some materials emit stronger off-gassing smells than others. The organic latex found in the Luxury Bliss and other similar hybrids is not normally associated with excessive or persistent smells. You'll notice a rubber-like odor after unboxing the mattress, but it should dissipate quickly thanks to consistent airflow from the bed's coils and ventilated comfort layer.
If you run into mattress odor issues, try placing the bed in a well-ventilated room for one to two days before sleeping on it. This should help clear out any unwanted smells rather quickly.
What Type of Sleeper Is the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss Mattress Best for?
For most side sleepers, the optimal mattress has a somewhat plush feel and conforms closely to the body. This ensures ample cushioning for the shoulders and hips and enhanced lower back support, which can improve spinal alignment and reduce pressure throughout the body.
The Luxury Bliss offers excellent support for side sleepers. The latex layer contours closely but the material doesn't lose shape and sag like memory foam or polyfoam. If you're a side sleeper, then you can count on better alignment and less pressure after sleeping on this mattress – though as you'll see in the next section, your experience with this model may depend on your body type.
Finding the right mattress as a combo sleeper can be tricky, as each position typically has different demands. Thankfully, the Luxury Bliss offers a balanced design that should be reasonably comfortable for side, back, and stomach sleepers, and any combination thereof.
The contouring latex and cushioning feel work to promote healthy alignment for side sleepers. The resilient latex and sturdy coils keep back and stomach sleepers on a fairly even plane without sinking too much between the shoulders and hips.
Compared to side sleepers, back sleepers usually need more support from their mattress. This position promotes spinal alignment, so extra padding around the shoulders and hips may not be as necessary. That being said, the comfort and support layers should resist excessive sinkage beneath areas where weight tends to concentrate, such as the torso and waist.
The Luxury Bliss provides great support thanks to its thick, durable latex layer and strong coils. If you're a back sleeper, then you may feel more comfortable on the medium feel as opposed to the medium firm (or vice versa), but this will probably depend more on how much you weigh.
Like back sleepers, stomach sleepers usually need more supportive mattresses to keep their bodies on an even plane. Many people carry a disproportionate amount of weight in their stomachs, and sleeping face-down can cause the entire body to sink – often to an uncomfortable degree.
The Luxury Bliss is well equipped for stomach sleeping thanks to its responsive latex and supportive coils. Models with a medium feel offer adequate reinforcement for stomach sleepers but the surface is still somewhat plush and prone to sinking. We recommend the medium firm Luxury Bliss for stomach sleepers – particularly those who weigh at least 130 pounds.
How Does Body Weight Impact the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss Mattress' Performance?
The Luxury Bliss's medium (5) and medium firm (6) feels are very similar, but distinct enough to notice minor differences. Medium models will conform more closely to your body. The latex shouldn't sink too much but you'll notice a more pronounced body hug with this firmness level, whereas medium firm models conform slightly less.
People who weigh less than 130 pounds will most likely prefer the medium feel. These sleepers typically feel most comfortable on beds that offer a close contour. Firmer beds tend to feel more uneven by comparison. This can affect how comfortable the surface feels, and may also lead to added pressure and aches and pains.
If you weigh between 130 and 230 pounds, then either firmness level of the Luxury Bliss may be more suitable. Your preferred feel depends on your ideal conforming level, since medium models hug the body a bit closer and medium firm models feel more supportive. For many people in this weight range, differences between the two firmness levels will be negotiable.
Those who weigh more than 230 pounds may find the medium Luxury Bliss too soft and susceptible to deep sinkage. This can be problematic for any sleep position. The medium firm models provide a bit more support and don't sink as much.
Is the PlushBeds Luxury Bliss Mattress Good for Couples?
The Botanical Bliss offers a slew of benefits for couples. The mattress offers exceptionally temperature neutrality and should resist overheating – a common issue for co-sleepers. Above-average edge support also ensures you and your partner can use the entire surface of the bed for sleeping, as well as sex, and won't feel confined to the middle.
The mattress also isolates motion reasonably well, but the surface is too responsive to completely eliminate transfer. As a result, people who share their bed with someone and wake up easily due to movement in bed may experience some sleep disruptions on the Botanical Bliss. That said, we don't foresee major problems for most couples.
