What Does Firmness Have to Do with A Good Night's Sleep?

We all know what it feels like to try to sleep on an uncomfortable bed. Generally, we rate our comfort by the softness-to-firmness level our bodies know to be the right firmness. Our bodies will tell us we are... or are not on the right mattress. Research has given our industry the general guidelines to go by, and we'll take a look at those first.

Latex Mattress Firmness

The comfort of a latex foam mattress is measured by its firmness (soft to firm) and is measured by the latex ILD (Impression Load Deflection) rating. This rating measures how easily the latex mattress will shape to your body and how much support it will provide.

Which ILD is the best for a latex mattress?

After extensive sleep studies, PlushBeds found that customers surveyed reported the highest customer satisfaction ratings after sleeping on latex mattresses in the medium (side sleepers) ILD range to med-firm (back, stomach sleepers) ILD range.

Firmness difference between our 9", 10" and 12" Botanical Bliss models

The difference between our 9", 10" and 12" Botanical Bliss models varies, depending on the firmness you choose. Each mattress has its own unique attributes. Whatever your body type or sleep preferences are, we can help you find the bed that will help you sleep better than ever before.


The taller the mattress, the more soft talalay latex is used in the top comfort layer. Our 9" model is topped with a 2" comfort layer; our 10" model with a luxurious 3" comfort layer, and our 12" model with a luxurious 5" comfort layer (a 2" comfort layer over a 3" comfort layer).

In our Soft and Medium models, the additional talalay on the 10" and 12" models gives these mattresses a softer, plush feel - preferable if you're a side sleeper or prefer a softer mattress. The 9" model, on the other hand, is ideal for side sleepers who need a little more support without sacrificing comfort.


In our medium firm and extra firm models, all three thicknesses have a similar feel (taller mattresses will still be supportive) since firmer talalay latex is used in the comfort layer on all three models. Instead of sleep style, body weight becomes the deciding factor when choosing a firm mattress, since the amount of firm latex needed in the comfort layer will depend on the amount of weight pressing against it.

We recommend using the following guide in selecting your medium-firm or extra-firm models:

support and pressure relief

When you combine the hypo-allergenic, temperature regulating, and eco-friendly characteristics of latex foam with the unmatchable comfort and buoyant support of our carefully engineered Botanical Bliss line, it becomes obvious that any of our 3 models (9", 10" or 12") would be a wonderful addition to your bedroom. Remember, our 100-night comfort exchange policy allows you to find the Botanical Bliss comfort that's just right for you, even after it has been delivered.
