Read our GhostBed Mattress review to find out.
GhostBed Review – Foundation and Construction
The GhostBed is 11 inches thick, constructed from a combination of memory foam and latex. It comes with a universal comfort model designed to appeal to different types of sleepers. The 3.5-inch thick top comfort layer is nice and thick, while the foundation made from 7.5 inches of high-density support foam base provides the right level of firmness and comfort.
5-inch Top Comfort and Cooling Layer
The top most layer of the mattress is made out of 1.5-inch aerated latex foam, designed to provide sleepers with overall bounce and cooling. It is also designed to provide instant responsiveness and comfort.
2-inch Middle Support Layer
Made of 2-inch gel memory foam, this layer is specifically designed to provide pressure relief and support. Less responsive than the top layer, this middle layer acts as the part that provides core support. The gel also provides cooling and helps with heat dissipation.
5-inch Bottom Foundation Layer
Made of 7.5 inches of high-density support foam, the bottom most layer is essentially the foundation for the foams that make the top layers.
The GhostBed’s cover is 100% polyester that has a beautifully dimpled cover pattern. The cover is quite plush and stretchy, adding to the mattress’ comfort. You can feel these dimples on top through your sheets, making it feel like you are getting a massage in some ways. The GhostBed’s cover is soft and thin and helps in improving cooling and air flow.
GhostBed Mattress Firmness And Support
With its universal comfort level, the GhostBed is designed to appeal to a number of different sleepers. While this works well for some people, it does not necessarily appeal to everyone. When compared to other competitors in this category, the Ghost Bed feels firmer than most. Almost every Ghost bed We give the mattress a 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale.
With the combination of memory foam and latex, the GhostBed provides support and responsiveness. This is because the latex provides some initial pushback and keeps you from sinking into the mattress. The foam beneath the latex adapts to your weight and contours to your body.
Lighter sleepers might find the GhostBed a tad too firm but for those slightly heavier, it might be just right as they are able to benefit from the second layer of foam. This is seconded by many a Ghostbed mattress review online. As mentioned already, universal comfort does not work for everyone, especially couples who have different preferences when it comes to firmness. However, overall, we think that the GhostBed does a pretty good job of balancing this.
GhostBed Mattress Review – Comfort
When it comes to the exterior, the GhostBed is extremely soft and comfortable. When you lie down on the mattress, the latex and gel foam layers work well to give you a balanced feel in most sleeping positions. Because the top layer is latex, you do not have to worry about being enveloped or hugged into foam like other memory foam mattresses.
The cover gives you a very enjoyable, comfortable feel through the sheets. Plus the GhostBed mattress adapts to your body as time passes. If you are a side sleeper, you will not feel the discomfort from the mattress’ firmness like you do with firmer mattresses or those that collapse under weight.
The GhostBed does not sleep hot. This is an important consideration, especially as a couple. The aerated latex foam and gel memory foam combined with the thin, breathable cover work incredibly well to prevent heat from getting trapped beneath the mattress and your body. You will not notice stickiness or heat buildup, both of which are common complaints with a lot of memory foam mattresses out there.
