I choose Natural bliss for a trundle bed for my grandchildren. It's has toxic -free certifications for latex and a host of other pollutants. Also, the agent answered all my questions clearly and was knowledgeable about the mattress structure and helped me customize the latex layers.

PLUSHBEDS won me over with their commitment to quality natural products. I looked at several different brands of mattresses from air chamber types to memory foam to gel matrix types. This will be my first latex mattress so I'm taking a gamble based on my growing trust in natural products.
David M on May 19, 2019

Good reviews, natural talalay latex, good price, 100 night trial, with more firmness options than other online companies.

Because it is similar to another we purchased a few years ago, the sale price is relatively reasonable, and customer reviews indicate it is odorless.

I have slept so much better since I received this mattress and the hip pain is gone. I mean "GONE" Anyone out there with bursitis in the hips...Give the latex mattress a try! You will love it...
Cheri B on Jun 5, 2017
This is our second purchase of a Natural Bliss! Our youngest daughter is getting her "big girl" bed. Our oldest loves her bed and it is amazingly comfortable. Knowing it is chemical free and safe for my children is one of the most important reasons we purchased a Natural Bliss in the first place. I cannot wait for the time to replace my latex mattress!
Mareca M on Jun 5, 2017
It is vegan and all natural latex
Meroeh R on Dec 25, 2016

BEST ANSWER: Latex mattresses have far less motion transfer than traditional innerspring mattresses. An all-natural latex bed gives under your weight and shifts back to its original position when you move, but the motion is localized. The cells beneath your body compress and expand individually. A quality latex mattress on a quality mattress foundation can give you most still, peaceful sleep you've ever had.

BEST ANSWER: The resilient feel of latex is one of the most delectable in the mattress industry. Its unique customizability makes it ideal for a wide range of sleepers. Whether you are a stomach sleeper who likes a firm mattress or a side sleeper who wants to sink into your bed, you'll find the unique responsiveness of latex to be a gently supportive bedding alternative that relieves pressure and aligns your spine-so you sleep deeply and wake refreshed.

BEST ANSWER: Our natural latex mattresses come in 4 firmness levels: soft, medium, medium-firm and firm. Rule of thumb, even if you are partially a side sleeper, our medium will provide better pressure relief in your hip and shoulder areas. If you prefer a firmer mattress and only sleep on your stomach or back, our medium-firm will provide the additional support you are looking for.
If the natural latex mattress is too firm or too soft, can I exchange the firmness without having to return the entire mattress?

BEST ANSWER: If you receive your mattress and it's softer or firmer that you would like, just give us a call to exercise your 100 night comfort guarantee. We'll send you a new top layer of 100% natural latex of a different firmness. Simply unzip the top of your cover and replace the old top layer with the new. We'll send you a shipping label to return the old layer.

BEST ANSWER: Natural Latex Mattress Thickness: SOFT/MEDIUM: 9" has a 2" comfort layer; 10" has a 3" comfort layer, 12" has a 5" comfort layer and the cover is 1." The 10" & 12" have a softer feel, if you’re a side sleeper or prefer a softer mattress. The 9" is ideal for side sleepers who need a little more support. MEDIUM-FIRM/EXTRA-FIRM: Firmer latex is used in the comfort layer on 9", 10", 12". Body weight is the deciding factor here. 9" is best for up to 225 lbs; 10" up to 275 lbs; 12" up to or over 275 lbs.

BEST ANSWER: 100% natural latex is naturally abrasive, and will therefore grip the layers surrounding it. This means it wont slide or bunch, even after twenty or so years of nightly use by mattress owners. Furthermore, a huge advantage to non-glued layers (both immediately when you receive your mattress or years down the road if your comfort needs change) is that if your mattress is too firm or too soft, you can simply exchange a layer of latex to a firmness of your liking vs. returning the whole mattress.

BEST ANSWER: Most of our mattresses are compression rolled for efficient shipping using a state of the art roll pack machine which fully compresses and seals the mattress, then rolls it into a size which can be shipped via UPS. Most of our latex mattresses are compression rolled and shipped via UPS. If your mattress ships via UPS, you will receive a shipping notification via email on the night your mattress ships. The email will contain your UPS tracking number and your mattress delivery can be tracked on the UPS website.

BEST ANSWER: Memory foam and latex may seem similar at first glance, both are responsive foam bedding options designed to support your body without the use of traditional inner springs. Natural latex is very resilient and it responds quickly and gently to your every move. It is great for pressure relief and it provides great cushioned support. Memory foam responds slower to your movement and it offers more of a soft and sinking sensation similar to sleeping in quicksand.

BEST ANSWER: Natural latex is much more resilient and better for pressure relief because it is extremely elastic. Blended latex has more of a couch foam feel to it and does not have the same resilience as 100% natural latex. For this same reason, blended latex mattresses sold in stores typically will have a much higher firmness level (higher ILD) to compensate for the lack of resilience or "springiness" that 100% natural latex provides. While this may compensate for support, the higher ILD does not have the same pressure-relieving qualities. Only 100% natural latex has the unique characteristic of simultaneous pressure relief and contouring support. Due to the high cost of the raw materials, solid 100% natural latex mattresses are typically not sold in retail stores.

BEST ANSWER: No, however the mattress does have to be on a completely flat surface to validate the warranty. In several warranty inquires, we found customers were placing their latex mattress on an old box spring (+7-10 years old), which began to sag due to the weight of the mattress.
