A Mattress With Customized Firmness and Support Is Best - PlushBeds

Buying a mattress is a very personal choice. There is not one mattress thickness, firmness and support which is perfect for everyone. Therefore, it’s important that you are able to customize your mattress, so that it is perfect for your particular sleeping pattern and body type.

One of the wonderful things about PlushBeds 100% natural latex mattresses is that they are hand crafted and customized just for you. Not only are they the healthiest and most comfortable mattresses you can buy, but they also offer a limitless range of customization options, to make them a perfect fit for your needs.


Below you will discover many different ways that you can customize your 100% natural latex mattress, to make it work for your needs and those of your family. You might be surprised at how versatile these mattresses can be and find new reasons to fall in love with the idea of owning a latex mattress for your home.

Customized Sizes

Chances are, you have more than one bed in your home, and among those beds you may have multiple sizes. This means you’ll need more than one size of mattress for your family. Fortunately for you, it is possible to get quality 100% natural latex mattresses in a wide variety of sizes for your home, including:

  • Twin
  • Twin XL
  • Full
  • Queen
  • King
  • Cal King
  • Queen Split
  • King Split
  • Cal King Split

It’s easy to find all of the standard sizes; however, you can work with us here at PlushBeds to get a special customized size, if needed. For example, if you have a non-standard bed frame, and need a custom sized mattress to fit it.

Customized Firmness and Support

The firmness of your latex mattress is a bigger consideration than you may realize. Not only does it determine the support your mattress provides, but it can have a massive impact on the amount of comfort you feel during sleep and upon waking in the morning.

With natural latex, the density of the mattress plays a substantial role in how firm the mattress feels. There is a term in the mattress industry that describes the firmness or density of the mattress. It is called the Indentation Load Deflection, or ILD. For natural latex, the lower the ILD, the plusher the mattress. Higher numbers indicate firmer mattresses. For instance, softer natural latex mattresses will often hover near the 20 ILD mark while firmer natural latex mattresses will approach 36 ILD.

The best ILD level for you may rely on a variety of factors, such as whether you sleep on your back, side, or stomach. For instance, an ILD between 19 and 21 is best suited for those who enjoy a soft feeling. An ILD of 24 to 26 is the most popular choice, and best suited for side sleepers who often feel it offers the perfect balance of comfort and support.

Back and stomach sleepers tend to feel the most comfortable on mattresses that are in the medium-firm range of 29-31. The medium-firm range is more supportive. Some even prefer to sleep on extremely firm mattresses that fall within the 34-36 ILD range. The key is to identify the level of firmness that works best for you and your partner, and go with that when customizing your latex mattress.

When you buy a mattress, you should be able to customize the firmness of each layer in your mattress, to meet your needs. This will ultimately give you the most comfortable night’s sleep. One of the greatest benefits of customizing your natural latex mattress is that you can choose a different firmness for one side than the other, allowing you to have one side of your mattress firmer or softer than the other to accommodate the different sleep needs your partner may have.

Customized Thickness

Aside from the firmness of your latex mattress, the comfort layers can have a significant impact on how well you sleep. Comfort layers may be more vital for people who sleep on their sides, as they offer some degree of cushioning for pressure points. The comfort layers give you the cushioned support you require, along with the pressure relief and soothing comfort that can make these mattresses so comfortable.

With PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Mattress, you will find that you can choose from a 2″ comfort layer, a 3″ comfort layer, or a 5″ comfort layer (which is the combination of one 2″ comfort layer with one 3″ comfort layer). For comfort layers, body weight is the largest deciding factor in which thickness choice is best for you.

It is recommended that people who weigh up to 225 pounds choose the 9” Botanical Bliss mattress, which features a two-inch comfort layer. Those who weigh up to 275 pounds may prefer the 10” mattress, while those who weigh more than 275 are likely to be most comfortable with the 12” mattress model, which features the 2″ and the 3″ comfort layers. And if you typically like a plush feel, then the 10″ or 12″ mattress is best for you.

The layers in PlushBeds natural latex mattresses are not glued together, so you can add or remove comfort layers, as needed, to customize the mattress, for your best sleep ever. You can even change the comfort level on one side of the mattress, while leaving the other alone, so that each partner can enjoy luxurious comfort and support night after night.

Customized Foundation

Foundations are another area where you can customize your bed. PlushBeds has a standard Orthopedic Foundation that offers many attractive benefits, such as chemical free manufacturing, sturdy wood support, euro-slatted design for optimal breathability and a heavy-duty design that can easily support up to 600 pounds.

We also offer the option of the PlushBeds Adjustable Bed Foundation. This foundation provides the ultimate customization story, allowing either party to adjust the head to a full 70 degrees or the foot to a full 47 degrees. You can even choose to use three-inch leg extenders on legs that adjust to three, five, or eight inches. This way each partner can adjust his or her side of the bed to the perfect sleeping position to meet his or her needs best. Adjustable bases are available in several different types for even more customization.

What Makes PlushBeds 100% Natural Latex Mattresses The Best?

As part of the PlushBeds commitment to your comfort, we offer the 100 Night Free Comfort Exchange Program. While the hope is that working with the talented team at PlushBeds you will get the perfect mattress made with the correct firmness the first time around, if that is not the case, PlushBeds will send you a new comfort layer of a different firmness to help you resolve your comfort issues (at no cost to you).

Few mattresses can match the ultimate customizability offered by PlushBeds natural latex mattresses. Because your mattress is made uniquely for you, you get to make important decisions related to your comfort and support prior to the manufacturing process. More importantly, if for some reason the mattress still isn’t perfect, you can make changes, after the mattress has shipped, to ensure that it becomes the perfect choice for you and your partner.

People are all unique, and have diverse needs from their mattresses. Customizing your natural latex mattress from PlushBeds means you can make sure all your needs are met and that you sleep comfortably night after night.
