Pure Latex Bliss mattress specifications/construction... 11 May 2012 12:52 #1

During my research phase, I found a site that listed the construction of PLB mattresses. Since a lot of people are always trying to find this information, figured I would create a thread on it as reference in one central location. I know Phoenix has listed ways of finding this information also but didn't see an actual thread listing everything.

You can find all the specs listed below at:

NOTE ADDED: These specs are for the "second" version of the PLB Natural line (since they replaced the 1" polyfoam base layer with very firm Talalay).

They now have a 3rd version which uses Active Fusion fast response latex in the top layer (what used to be called Celsion) and the 1" layer on the bottom has been added to the second layer of all the models in the lineup except for the Pamper where the top layer is now a 2" Active Fusion layer. The ILD's have also changed slightly as well although they are very similar. You can see the specs of the new Active Fusion models (with the blue cover) in post #2 here .

Hi reverse,

The specs are sprinkled around the forum in various places ( including here ) but I think it's a great idea to have them under a specific heading which will be easier for others to find.

Thank you :)

The only change from these specs is that they now use a 1" 50 ILD talalay latex layer for the support stabilization base to replace the polyfoam.

There are also a few other models that I don't have the accurate specs for (some of which are very new) and as I discover them (PLB is not as forthcoming any longer) I will also add them to this thread to keep them all in one place.

Pure Latex Bliss mattress specifications/construction... 19 May 2013 18:17 #3

Do you consider the PLB mattress to be 100% Latex? Does it contain glue?
Thanks.

Hi lauren michele,

Do you consider the PLB mattress to be 100% Latex?


Their natural line and their all natural line are both 100% latex yes (except of course for the cover and the fire barrier).
ADMIN NOTE:Removed 404 page link | Archived Footprint 1: latexbliss.com/shop/mattresses/natural| Archived Footprint 2:latexbliss.com/shop/mattresses/all-natural

The natural uses blended Talalay and the all natural uses 100% natural Talalay (meaning it has no synthetic latex used in its manufacturing).

Does it contain glue?


Yes ... the layers are glued. They describe the glue they use here .

I had an opportunity to lie down on the PLB Active Fusion Beautiful, and if money were no object, I would own one of these. PURE BLISS! I am considering either the Brooklyn Bedding Ultimate Dreams in soft or the Best Mattress Ever in soft. Do either of these compare favorably to the PLB Beautiful?

Hi Vicky Ann,

These are old specs for the PLB line and the current specs are here (although they are about to change as well).

I am considering either the Brooklyn Bedding Ultimate Dreams in soft or the Best Mattress Ever in soft. Do either of these compare favorably to the PLB Beautiful?


That would depend on how you define "favorably" because all three mattresses you mentioned are completely different designs. Both the BB BestMattressEver and the Dreamfoam Ultimate Dreams latex are latex/polyfoam hybrids and the Beautiful is an "all latex" mattress. There is more about some of the general differences between a latex/polyfoam hybrid and an all latex mattress in post #2 here .

The first "rule" of mattress shopping is to always remember that you are the only one that can feel what you feel on a mattress and there are too many unknowns, variables, and personal preferences involved that are unique to each person to use a formula or for anyone to be able to predict or make a specific suggestion or recommendation about which mattress or combination of materials and components or which type of mattress would be the best "match" for you in terms of "comfort" or PPP (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and your Personal preferences) or how a mattress will "feel" to you or compare to another mattress based on specs (either yours or a mattress), sleeping positions, health conditions, or "theory at a distance" that can possibly be more reliable than your own careful testing (hopefully using the testing guidelines in step 4 of the tutorial) or your own personal sleeping experience (see mattress firmness/comfort levels in post #2 here ).

I would also keep in mind that there are also no "standard" definitions or consensus of opinions for firmness ratings and different manufacturers can rate their mattresses very differently than others so a mattress that one manufacturer rates as being a specific firmness could be rated very differently by another manufacturer. Different people can also have very different perceptions of firmness and softness compared to others as well and a mattress that feels firm for one person can feel like "medium" for someone else or even "soft" for someone else (or vice versa) depending on their body type, sleeping style, physiology, their frame of reference based on what they are used to, and their individual sensitivity and perceptions. There are also different types of firmness and softness that different people may be sensitive to that can affect how they "rate" a mattress as well (see post #15 here ) so different people can also have very different opinions on how two mattresses compare in terms of firmness and and some people may rate one mattress as being firmer than another and someone else may rate them the other way around. This is all relative and very subjective and is as much an art as a science.

There is also more information in post #9 here about the different ways that one mattress can "match" or "approximate" another one. Every layer and component in a mattress (including the cover and any quilting materials) will affect the feel and performance of every other layer and component and the mattress "as a whole" so unless you are able to find another mattress that uses exactly the same type of materials, components, cover, layer thicknesses, layer firmnesses, and overall design (which would be very unlikely) then there really isn't a reliable way to match one mattress to another one in terms of "comfort", firmness, and PPP based on the specifications of the mattresses (even assuming that you can find out all the specifications you would need for both mattresses you are comparing in the first place).

Mattress manufacturers generally try to differentiate their mattress from the mattresses made by other manufacturers and don't normally try to "match" another mattress that is made by a different manufacturer so unless a manufacturer specifically says in their description of a mattress that one of their mattresses in the same general category is specifically designed to "match" or "approximate" another one in terms of firmness or "feel" and PPP and/or they are very familiar with both mattresses and can provide reliable guidance about how they compare based on the "averages" of a larger group of people that have compared them (different people may have very different opinions about how two mattresses compare) ... the only reliable way to know for certain how two mattresses would compare for you in terms of how they "feel" or in terms of firmness or PPP (regardless of anyone else's opinions of how they compare which may be different from your own) would be based on your own careful testing or actual sleeping experience on both of them.

When you can't test a mattress in person then the most reliable source of guidance is always a more detailed phone conversation with a knowledgeable and experienced retailer or manufacturer that has your best interests at heart and who can help "talk you through" the specifics of their mattresses and the properties and "feel" of the materials they are using (fast or slow response, resilience, firmness etc) and the options they have available that may be the best "match" for you based on the information you provide them, any local testing you have done or mattresses you have slept on and liked or other mattresses you are considering that they are familiar with, and the "averages" of other customers that are similar to you. They will know more about "matching" their specific mattress designs and firmness levels to different body types, sleeping positions, and preferences (or to other mattresses that they are familiar with) than anyone else.

Because your own personal experience is the only way to know for certain whether any mattress will be a good "match" for you in terms of your specific criteria and PPP (or how it will compare to another mattress) ... the exchange/return policy (and any costs involved) can also be a more important part of the "value" of an online purchase just in case (and in spite of the "best judgement" of everyone involved) the choice you make doesn't turn out as well as you hoped for.
