plushbeds :: latex mattresses {giveaway}

Print pageEmail page

This is my bed…

At first glance, you may think this is just a normal bed.  But it’s not.  It’s a magical bed.  It has unexpected powers to put you into the slumber of a lifetime.  All thanks to our new  Botanical Bliss™ natural latex mattress, courtesy of the geniuses at Plushbeds.

Half the time I pull back the covers I expect to see a unicorn, because it’s that magical.  No unicorns, but under those covers is an organic cotton cover that adds to the awesomeness of the latex mattress

Short of inviting you all over for a nap, I’m going to do my best to describe how remarkable this mattress is, and how it has given us the best sleep of our lives.

Let me rewind a little to give you a brief glimpse into our former sleeping woes.  My husband is not only a super light sleeper, he has suffered from sleep apnea in the past.  (He was “lucky” that it was due to structural issues and was corrected by surgery.)  I have all sorts of back and hip problems and am practically family with my chiropractor at this point.  Oh, and I have gone through 3 unbelievably uncomfortable pregnancies.  Healthy sleep has simply not been in our lives before now.

We got our bed on a Friday, and we were giddy as can be about our first night’s sleep on our new Botanical Bliss™ natural latex mattress.   Being the nice wife I am, I let my husband take a 3 hour nap the next day.  Here is exactly what he said afterward:

“I cannot believe how comfortable and amazing this mattress is.  I feel like that nap just made up for so many years of bad sleep.”

When I tell people we have a new latex mattress, I can’t tell you the amount of puzzled looks I’ve gotten.  LATEX?  Yeah, I know, sounded a bit strange to me as well.  To save this review from turning into a novel, you can click here to read more details of why latex makes for a phenomenal mattress.

On that same page, you can read more about the construction of these mattresses and how they are far superior to the other “big name” mattresses.  From the harvesting of the latex, to the design, to the engineering, to the production, this mattress is far superior.  Then it’s all wrapped up in the softest organic cotton you ever did rest your weary bones on that has its competitors scrambling to imitate.  I am going to have to agree wholeheartedly that these mattresses are simply THE BEST.  Had I known, I can honestly say we would have bought one YEARS ago.

Here are just a few of the unique benefits a Botanical Bliss™ natural latex mattress offers:

  • Relieves pressure points and absorbs the shock of body movements.  Um, yes, it ACTUALLY does those things.
  • Latex instantaneously conforms to every curve and contour of your body to keep your spine in a properly supported throughout the night
  • By buying a natural latex mattress, you’re making a conservation-conscious choice that is friendly to the environment
  • Hypo Allergenic, Anti-Microbial, Dust Mite Resistant and Mildew Resistant – great for allergy sufferers

While I’m tempted to rattle off all the features and facts about these mattresses, what’s REALLY important is sharing my experience.  We have had this mattress for about 3 weeks now, and we have never felt better.  You don’t always realize how inadequate sleep affects all areas of your life!  My husband and I wake up everyday feeling energized, well-rested, and ready to go.  (I’m not exaggerating.  Ok, SOME days I’m a little groggy if I’ve had to get up a few times to breastfeed the baby.)  I do not, I repeat…DO NOT…wake up with ANY of the aches and pains I used to with our former mattress.  Our quality of life has increased by like 300%!


We are partnering with Plushbeds over the next 6 months so I can share my personal experience with their latex mattress, and how healthy sleep has improved my quality of life.  They are GENEROUSLY offering giveaways of some of their most desirable products to our readers.  This is one series of reviews and giveaways you DO NOT WANT TO MISS!

    I think latex mattresses are pretty expensive but overall it is a good investment because it can last for a long time. Take it from a guy who thinks long term. http://www.mattressesdirect.com.au/ and a few other sites sell the natural ones which last the longest.

    I learned that they have latex mattresses for RVs. While most “Latex Mattresses” sold today use synthetic latex made from petrochemical products which have a limited lifespan, Plushbeds is proud to offer our All Natural Sri Lankan Botanical Latex RV mattress with no synthetic, petroleum based products.

    Apparently they breathe better but I can tell you what I DIDN’T LEARN or SEE ANYTHING about and that’s information for people with LATEX allergies. Is the Latex contained in a way that it has no contact with your skin at all or is there so much Latex it would be bad for someone with the allergy? :\ Just curious because while our little house hold doesn’t have someone with the condition, one of my frequent visitors does.

    The latex structure makes more body contact, relieving pressure points and providing unsurpassed comfort and support, while at the same time absorbing the shock of body movement, allowing you to move freely without waking your partner.
