How does the Plush & Loom Sleep?
Firmness and Support
We found that the Plush and Loom mattress gets a 5 out of 10 firmness rating (10 being the firmest). The 2″ of Plush and Loom Serene foam combines with 2″ of regular foam to give a softer top. Sleepers have found that the Plush and Loom is comfortable, cradling and hugging the body.
Beneath the 4″ of softer foam is a 6″ high-density foundation foam. This layer is what gives the needed support for the sleeper. The top foam layers disperse the weight of the sleeper over this firmer layer. We have found no pain complaints from sleepers with this mattress. Customers seem to love the softness and the support from the Plush and Loom mattress.
Sinkage and Horizontal Motion Transfer
We saw a sinkage of 3″ with the Plush & Loom. This depth is around what we would expect with a bed of this softness. Softer mattresses do tend to favor side and back sleepers. We might not recommend this bed for stomach sleepers.
The Plush & Loom mattress is completely foam which means little horizontal motion transfer. No movement is ideal for partners who move around a lot during the night. The only downside of foam beds is the lack of responsiveness. While it is much softer, the bed doesn’t spring back as quickly as a spring mattress.

Temperature and Off-Gassing
The Plush & Loom bed was designed with temperature in mind. They created the top Serene foam layer to stay cooler during the night. This coolness is critical as full foam beds tend to run much hotter than spring. Plush & Loom’s response to this was the top Serene Foam layer.
We have found no customer issues with off-gassing for this bed. All box mattresses have a small odor when first opened, but that leaves quickly. The Plush and Loom is low-VOC, and CertiPUR-US certified. Customers don’t need to worry about harmful chemicals.
