GhostBed Mattress Review: 3 Types of Foam for a Comfy, Blended Feel

The GhostBed Classic is one of the few bed-in-a-box mattresses that uses synthetic latex foam for that breathable and supportive feel without a marked-up price tag.

Horror movies and stories have taught us to avoid ghosts, but the GhostBed Classic mattress isn't something to run away from. It's a mattress that, unlike popular bed-in-a-box brands like Casper and Nectar, utilizes three different types of foams to achieve a more one-of-a-kind feel. GhostBed is owned by the reputable Nature's Sleep bedding company and has even partnered with tennis icon Venus Williams for a product collection. The company offers several different mattresses including its cooling option  GhostBed Luxe , but this review will focus on the GhostBed Classic mattress. I'll reveal my verdict on everything from firmness, feel, price, the types of sleeping positions it's best for and more below! Continue on to learn everything you need to know about the GhostBed Classic mattress.  


First impressions 

I'm a big fan of anything spooky and scary, so of course GhostBed partly sold me on the cute ghost showcased on the end of the bed in its logo. Aside from that, I am a fan of the mattress and the fact they include a thin latex foam layer in the comfort layer. I really love latex foam for a number of reasons, namely the bounce and responsiveness it can add to a mattress. Paired with that memory foam center layer, it creates a more unique feel in the GhostBed Classic than the standard foam mattress, combining the best qualities of each foam. 

Straight out of the box, it does have a noticeable chemical-y smell and that's because of the synthetic foams used and the compression process. However, it will go away -- don't worry. A lot of bed-in-a-box mattresses emit this odor when you unbox them, with the exception of natural and organic mattresses.

When judging firmness, I try to gauge how much I'm sinking into the mattress, how much pressure relief I'm getting, and how supported my back feels. Is it sagging into the bed or in a straight line? For the GhostBed Classic mattress, I think it offers a little of both. 

That memory foam promotes a contouring feel around your curves but it doesn't feel difficult to switch positions on. It also gives ample support to my spine when I'm sleeping on my back or stomach. As a result, I'd rate the firmness around a medium, or a 5 out of 10, with 10 being the firmest. It's right at that sweet spot for firmness profiles that are accommodating for a lot of different sleeping positions. 

The GhostBed Classic mattress is entirely made from foam and it's about 11 inches thick. As I mentioned above, this bed utilizes three different foams, including synthetic latex foam. Synthetic latex foam has similar characteristics to the natural and organic form of latex, but without the steep price tag. Though, it isn't eco-friendly.  

Here's a rundown of the three foam layers in the GhostBed Classic mattress:

  • First is 7.5 inches of a dense polyurethane foam which acts as the main support layer. 
  • The center has 2 inches of gel memory foam which is better at regulating temperature than the typical memory foam.
  • The comfort layer is 1.5 inches of GhostBed's latex foam. It's perforated across the surface, which lets air pass through, making it more breathable than most other foams like poly or memory foam.  

The cover on the GhostBed Classic mattress is made with polyester and viscose, and I must warn you it's not machine washable. So, even though you can take the cover off, I don't recommend you throw it in the washing machine. If you do, don't say I didn't warn you when you try to fit it back on. 


The three major foams typically used in mattresses are poly foam, memory foam, and poly foam. Most mattresses don't use all three, but the GhostBed Classic is different. I feel the support and sponginess of the latex foam, but it doesn't bounce like the typical latex foam bed. That's because I can also feel the slow-moving, contouring feel of the memory foam poking out underneath the latex foam. That makes it more neutral-feeling like poly foam, resulting in a blended foam feel overall. 

If you're someone who hates the feel of a memory foam mattress because it can give you that "sinking" feel, you'll probably be really pleased with the GhostBed Classic mattress. It's pressure-relieving, but you aren't going to become nestled into a memory foam cocoon. 

Motion isolation

This mattress does a great job at deadening movement, even though it contains that latex foam top layer. There are no springs and memory foam is second-to-none at isolating movement throughout a mattress. This is a feature to take into consideration if you share a mattress with somebody.  

Edge support

When you find yourself near the edge of a mattress at night, you don't want to suddenly feel the sensation of falling off -- or worse, actually topple off. This happens if the sides give easily and don't offer proper support. Foam bed-in-a-box mattresses generally have average edge support, and the same goes for the GhostBed Classic. It didn't blow me away, but it also shouldn't be bad enough that you won't be comfortable on the edge. 



The GhostBed Classic mattress isn't going to sleep cold, but it is better at regulating temperature than other foam mattresses on the market, like the Casper and the Layla mattress . That gel memory foam helps prevent the bed from retaining heat, and the latex foam lets air pass through the entire layer. I didn't sleep hot when testing out the GhostBed Classic mattress, and I think most people will have that same sentiment. 

Who is it best for?

Considering the bed's all-foam construction and medium or 5 firmness level, here are the types of people I'd recommend this GhostBed mattress to. 

Mattresses in the center of the firmness scale offer ample pressure relief and support to side, back, stomach and combination sleepers. This makes the GhostBed Classic ideal for just about everyone, sleep position wise. 


Foam mattresses aren't as supportive or durable as hybrid mattresses, so I would mostly recommend this bed to people under 230 pounds, unless you plan on keeping it in a guest bedroom. I don't think you'll get the right back support over time, especially if you sleep on your back or stomach. Check out the GhostBed Flex mattress or our best list for the best hybrid mattresses . 

GhostBed mattress pricing

Latex foam is usually decently expensive, but this GhostBed mattress is synthetic and will be a little nicer on your wallet. It's in the range of your average bed-in-a-box prices, on par with brands like Nectar and Casper. A queen size will retail around $1,295 but you can find the brand running promos pretty often. In honor of Cyber Monday , GhostBed is offering up to 50% off its mattresses. 

Warranty, shipping and trial 

If you've never purchased a mattress online before, you should know that it looks a lot different than purchasing in-store. It'll be delivered to your door (typically for free), rolled up inside of a box. Not a mattress-size box, but a box the size of a set of golf clubs. After you unbox it, it will slowly expand to its full size.

With the GhostBed Classic mattress, you'll have 101 nights to try out your mattress and figure out if you want to keep it. If you do, you'll be backed by a 20-year warranty. If you want to return it, reach out to customer service and they'll walk you through the rest of the process. 

Final verdict 

In a virtual sea of online mattresses, the GhostBed Classic finds a way to stand out from the rest of the competition even though it's a fairly simple foam mattress. Its use of all three types of comfy foam give it a more unique feel that combines the best of all worlds:  it's supportive and pressure-relieving, but not difficult to switch positions in. Here's why I say you should or shouldn't pull the trigger on GhostBed.

You might like it if:

  • You want a moderate firmness level that isn't soft or firm, but right in the middle
  • You don't like the feel of memory foam and want something different 
  • You weigh under 230 pounds
  • You sleep on your side, back, stomach, or a little of each

You might not like it if:

  • You want an ultra budget mattress
  • You weigh over 230 pounds
  • You want a more supportive bed with coils
  • You want a mattress that's either very soft or very firm

GhostBed Mattress Review

Derek Hales

Written by: Derek Hales

Updated On: November 9, 2023

GhostBed Classic cover photo

  • Latex top layer is cool, responsive, and has good bounce
  • Balanced feel that’s achieved through a blend of latex and memory foam
  • Minimal motion transfer


  • It’s not a hot mattress, but there are cooler alternatives on the market
  • Dense supportive foams may not be ideal for petite sleepers (110 pounds or less)

Our Verdict

The GhostBed is a combo foam mattress that uses perforated latex foam, gel-infused memory foam, and a support foam base. It strikes that nice balance of low motion transfer, but fast response time. If you like the feel of memory foam, but are worried about heat retention, too much sinkage and contour, or slow response, the GhostBed may be a good option to consider. The latex top layer helps keep the mattress cooler, increases response and bounce, and offers a more generalized contour around your body for excellent pressure relief.

Type: Combo Foam Firmness: Medium (6.5) Best For: All Sleeping Positions, All Body Weights

Performance Tests

Here at NapLab, we put each mattress to the test.

We test 9 different factors that impact the comfort and feel of the mattress. Testing categories include:

How is GhostBed Classic Different?

The GhostBed Classic mattress has a slightly higher performance score than average as well as a price that is less than average—18% lower than the average foam mattress (a savings of over $300)

Other advantages to the GhostBed Classic include lower levels of motion transfer, faster off-gassing than average, and a lower price as well.

Neutral Factors

This mattress has 8% deeper sinkage than average as well as 18% less bounce than average. Both sinkage and bounce are more preferential than anything else, but definitely worth considering when trying to decide if the GhostBed is a good option for you.


Edge support is a little deeper on the GhostBed compared to the average mattress (0.39″ more sinkage) and cooling struggles a bit as well. This mattress is memory foam so breathability issues are not that uncommon in budget memory foam mattresses.

Cooling Test

The cooling performance was good, but not great. In our objective tests, the Ghostbed reached a maximum temperature of 92.7° F. This is near the very top of all mattresses we’ve tested to date.

Baseline Temp.

Ending Temp.

  • Baseline Temperature – the temperature of the mattress before anyone lies on it
  • Maximum Temperature (0 minute) – the temperature of the mattress after lying on it for 15 minutes
  • Ending Temperature (5 minute) – the temperature of the mattress after being lied upon and having no one on it for 5 minutes

Similarly, it was slower than is great when it came to heat dissipation. Speaking subjectively, during the tests I did feel slightly warm, but nothing excessive.

Heat Dissipation Over Time

Heat Dissipation Chart Ghostbed Classic

My subjective experience wasn’t nearly as noteworthy as what our objective data seemed to indicate.

As a result, I feel there may be more going on with the cooling dynamic than our surface level temperatures are capturing.

In looking at the materials and design, Ghostbed uses a proven layer stack with aerated latex on top and memory foam within the core. In my view, most people will find the Ghostbed a comfortable temperature.

However, naturally hot sleepers or sleepers with a large bodyweight may find it warm and may be better off with something like the Ghostbed Luxe or a hybrid mattress (Ghostbed Flex, Ghostbed Luxe , Winkbed , Saatva , etc.).

Sinkage Test

We noted a sinkage depth of 2.34” in our pressure point test. This is within the normal range that we see for most mattresses at this firmness level.

Sinkage Depth


Sinkage Feel

GhostBed Classic sinkage

It’s deep enough to offer sufficient pressure relief, without creating an excessive amount of hug or sinkage.

While lying on the mattress the combination of latex and memory foam create a nice level of contour and sinkage around the entire body. Because latex is on top the contour is more generalized, as opposed to memory foam, which has a more defined contouring shape.

Motion Transfer Test

The level of motion transfer is documented in the video below.

Motion transfer was quite low. Our accelerometer tests revealed an acceleration range of 4.8 m/s².

Max. Acceleration

Min. Acceleration

Accel. Range

Despite the fact that Ghostbed uses latex in the top layer, the mattress as a whole does a great job at managing energy and keeping motion transfer to a minimum. 

GhostBed Classic motion transfer

Within 0.3 seconds the bulk of the energy has been dissipated, and by 0.7 seconds motion transfer is effectively zero.

Response Test

Response time on the GhostBed was quite fast also. Within 0.4 seconds the mattress is able to mostly recovery and return back to its original shape.

Mostly Recovered

Complete Recovery

The level of responsiveness is documented in the video below.

Since the Ghostbed uses a memory foam core, it takes a full 1.0 seconds to 100% recover.

However, in general, the mattress is quick to adapt to changes in pressure and body position, keeping you well supported. During our tests, I never felt “stuck” or entrapped by the foams.

Bounce Test

The bounce of the Ghostbed is a good bit higher than I expected. The Ghostbed had a bounce range of 8.0”.


Max. Rebound


Total Bounce


The level of bounce is documented in the video below.

In my view, the latex foam is really carrying the load here. Latex is highly responsive and generally has a high bounce as well.

Placing it as the top layer helps to ensure the mattress has a traditional bounce feel, while offering great response and cooling also.

Max. Sinkage Depth

Ghostbed Classic max bounce depth

Max. Bounce Height

The Ghostbed’s 8.0″ bounce range is slightly below the average 8.2″ bounce height, which is the average among all mattresses we’ve tested to date. Even so, at 8.0″, it’s even much within the normal range and will be sufficiently comfortable for most sleepers.

Edge Support Test

Edge support was excellent. While lying directly on the edge I felt every bit as supported on the edge as I did on the middle of the mattress.

Lying Support

The level of edge support while seated is documented in the images below.

GhostBed Classic side sleeping (body weight only)

Lying on Edge, 200 lbs.

GhostBed Classic side sleeping (weighted vest)

Our sitting test revealed a maximum compression of 4.5”. This is definitely near the maximum compression that we like to see, but not over the line.

The Ghostbed does a nice job of maintaining strong edge support, even when under heavy pressure.

While lying on the mattress the Ghostbed performed well. I felt perfectly supported while on my back and side lying directly on the edge of the mattress.

The best mattresses for sex have high bounce, good edge support, quiet materials, and good pressure relief and cooling.

These 5 factors make up the NapLab sex performance score.

For the Ghostbed , these individual factors generated a sex score of 9.5.

The factors that helped the GhostBed the most include sufficient bounce, low noise output, and quality pressure relief.

The edge support was a little lacking, but not horrible. The cooling is good, but not great. Even so, it’s a fairly minor factor for sex, in our view.

Pressure Relief Test

Overall, I felt excellent pressure relief in all sleeping positions. The mattress is just north of a true medium at a 6.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale.

Comfort Layer

Support Layer

Even so, it’s got enough give within the top layers to relieve pressure across the body, while still offering plenty of support. The latex top layer creates a more generalized hug around the body, while the memory foam core provides deep compression sinkage, sharper contouring, and support. Together, these factors deliver excellent pressure relief for the majority of sleepers.

Ghostbed Classic Foam Layers

Petite people (110 pounds or less) may find that the pressure relief isn’t ideal, as to really engage the memory foam you do need to have a little more weight.

However, most other sleepers should find that the pressure relief is more than sufficient.

Off-Gassing Test

The off-gassing of the GhostBed is similar to the GhostBed Luxe . The initial smell is pretty strong, but the smell dissipates fairly quickly.

Initial Smell Strength

Off-Gassing Period

Overall, the off-gassing score doesn’t take a huge hit in score because in the grand scheme of things, two days isn’t too terribly long.

If you are ultra-sensitive to chemical odors, maybe let your mattress air out with a fan on or the window open. You can also run an air purifier to help move the VOCs out of the room as the process is completed.

GhostBed , as a company, has been around since 2015 and has a pretty good track record of customer service and quality. Ghostbed’s parent company, Nature’s Sleep, has been in business since 2001.

They offer a 101-night trial period with a 20-year warranty that is longer than usual for most foam-based mattresses.

Shipping is free (within the 48 continental states) and returns are free (one per household).

Returns are required to abide by the 30-night break-in period, a set amount of time for your body to get used to the mattress. GhostBed does not allow return requests until this time period has passed, which is pretty common across the industry.

How firm is GhostBed?

The GhostBed mattress is around a 6.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale—a pretty traditional medium and just a touch firmer than the GhostBed Luxe.

firmness - 6.5 out of 10 - medium

Support & Sleeping Positions

Depending on your body weight and sleeping position, you may find different firmness mattresses to be better or poorly suited to your needs.

Since the GhostBed essentially falls in the middle of the road, most sleepers will find this mattress to be comfortable, regardless of body weight or sleeping options.

The GhostBed mattress is a combo foam mattress that uses different types of foam to provide different benefits like pressure relief, support, and that initial hug and contour.

Overall, it has a balanced feel. It’s the classic latex + memory foam design.

In some ways, it’s got a restrained memory foam feel. You can feel the memory foam contouring the body, however, the top layer of latex creates a faster response, more bounce, a cooler feel, and a more generalized contour.

The two foams work together to create a balanced and even feel that many sleepers will enjoy.

Side sleeping on the GhostBed Classic

This mattress is 11″ thick and breaks down into three foam layers. The layers include:

  • 1.5″ latex foam
  • 2.0″ gel memory foam
  • 7.5″ support foam

Material layers on the GhostBed Classic

The cover of the GhostBed is a thin material made of viscose and polyester with a subtle seamed texture.

GhostBed Classic cover

Side panels on the GhostBed are a blend of polyester and polypropylene. Combining these materials results in a cover that is soft, yet durable.

The Comfort Layer

The comfort layer is essentially made up of two different materials. On the top layer is a responsive, perforated, latex foam. Latex foam is known for cooling properties and a faster response time, compared to memory foam.

GhostBed Classic foam layers

The second layer is a gel memory foam. Again, the gel is designed to improve cooling and counter the typical feeling memory foam (which tends to run hot).

Aside from these design factors, I still felt like the GhostBed felt a little warmer than I expected it to.

The Support Layer

Lastly, the bottom layer of foam is a thick support foam, which is the densest of all three foams used. As you’d expect, this layer provides support for the upper foam layers and encourages spinal alignment when sleeping on the GhostBed.

Product Evolution

GhostBed first launched in 2015 and hit the market with one mattress, the GhostBed . Today, Ghostbed calls that mattress their “Ghostbed Classic”

That mattress essentially uses the same materials and design as in the early days.

From the original Ghostbed mattress, GhostBed launched three more models of their mattress—the Luxe, the Flex, and the 3D Matrix. The Luxe, Flex, and 3D Matrix were all new mattress designs.

Compare GhostBed Mattresses

GhostBed makes four different models of their mattress—the Ghostbed Classic, the Luxe, the Flex, and the 3D Matrix. Here is a quick rundown of what makes each mattress different.

  • GhostBed Classic: Best for Budgets
  • GhostBed Luxe: Best for Cooling
  • GhostBed Flex: Luxury Hybrid
  • GhostBed 3D Matrix: Patented 3D Polymer Layer

Frequently Asked Questions

Still have questions? We’ve compiled a list of some of the most frequently asked questions about the GhostBed below.

The cost of a GhostBed mattress varies depending on what size you’re looking for. Here are the current prices: Twin : $648 Twin XL : $698 Full : $748 Queen : $848 King : $1,008 Cal. King : $1,013 Split King: $1,395

The purchase of any GhostBed mattress comes with a 101-night trial period. If you decide that the mattress isn’t right for you, they offer free returns. You do not have to keep the original box. NOTE: A GhostBed mattress is only eligible for a return after the 30-night break-in period. Also, you can only return one mattress per household.

Any new mattress bought in-store or online, can oftentimes be an adjustment to get used to. Because of this, for the first 30 nights, GhostBed will not accept return requests. If after the first 30 days you still don’t love it, you can initiate a return between 31-101 days for a full refund.

Shipping & handling is FREE for all 48 continental states. Shipping to Alaska & Hawaii is $600 for freight.

No. The best way to try a GhostBed mattress is to order online and try in your home during the 101-night trial period.

Cleaning a GhostBed mattress is similar to how you would clean any other foam-based mattress. You can spot clean with cold water and mild detergent or vacuum the mattress. To avoid stains and spills altogether, consider adding a waterproof mattress pad or a 6-sided mattress encasement.

Is the GhostBed a Good Mattress for You? 

Before we get started with this review, let’s figure out whether the GhostBed will be a good fit for you. This all-foam mattress is built with layers of latex foam, memory foam, and a high-density foam. Overall it has a medium-firm feel and is quite bouncy and responsive.

Depending on your body weight, height, and preferred sleeping position, the GhostBed may or may not work for you. To help you decide, take a look at some of my recommendations below.

Who I recommend the GhostBed mattress for

  • I really like the GhostBed for hot sleepers . It has a soft and breathable cover, naturally cooling latex, and gel-infused memory foam, so you’re getting quite a bit of airflow and cooling technology in this mattress.
  • I think combination sleepers would be happy on the GhostBed. Its top layer of latex makes for a bouncy and responsive feel that will keep combo sleepers from feeling “stuck” in this bed.
  • I think back sleepers would do well on this mattress. It offered some nice support to help promote a straight spinal alignment, while providing pressure relief at the lower back.

Who I don’t recommend the GhostBed mattress for

  • I don’t think the GhostBed is quite soft enough for strict side sleepers. I’d recommend these folks check out some of our best mattresses for side sleepers .
  • Similarly, I think strict stomach sleepers would find the GhostBed too soft. They need a firm mattress with extra support, like one of our best innerspring mattresses .
  • I think couples who are easily disturbed by a restless partner might not like the GhostBed. It has pretty high motion transfer, which means you’re likely to feel movement from one side of the bed on the other. If you sleep with a partner or pet, I’d recommend checking out our best mattresses for couples .

How Firm is the GhostBed Mattress?

So, we’ve discussed some of the basics about the GhostBed, but how exactly does it feel? To find out, I’m going to put this mattress through a few different tests, starting with firmness.

As with any feel factor, firmness level is subjective, and can change a lot depending on one’s size, shape, and weight. Therefore, my interpretation of the GhostBed may differ from your own. For reference, I’m 5’10”, 190 lbs., and prefer to sleep on my stomach.

GhostBed Firmness

After rolling around on the GhostBed, I decided to give it a 7 out of 10 on the firmness scale . When compared to the industry standard of 6.5 for medium firmness, it seems this bed is a touch on the firmer side.

The mattress got a 7 from me because I felt as though the predominant feel was one of support and bounce . Though I did get some nice contouring from the middle memory foam layer, I wouldn’t say it curbed very much of the lift I experienced from the latex and high-density poly foam. That being said, I think this bed would probably be best-suited for combination sleepers , particularly those who flip between their back and side in the night.

GhostBed Price and Sizing

Check out our pricing chart below to see how much the GhostBed costs in each size. The GhostBed is a value mattress, and is often included in our Best Mattress Under $1,000 list. Check out our GhostBed mattress coupon page for a nice discount.

GhostBed Mattress Performance

But firmness isn’t the only factor to consider! So, let’s test out this mattress for a few other performance factors. Take a look below to learn more about how the GhostBed will feel in different sleeping positions, when sharing the bed, and more!

Testing the GhostBed Mattress in Different Sleeping Positions

Depending on your body weight and preferred sleeping position, you’ll have different support needs. Read on below to see how the GhostBed would work for

Is the GhostBed a Good Mattress for Light Sleepers (Under 130 lbs)?

  • Light Back Sleepers –  These sleepers should feel really comfortable on the GhostBed, which offers nice bouncy support in this sleeping position.
  • Light Side Sleepers –  These sleepers will likely find the GhostBed too firm. I’d recommend they opt for a bed that offers more pressure-relief at the shoulders and hips.
  • Light Stomach Sleepers –  Light stomach sleepers should like the GhostBed. I think it will offer them the support they need to keep their hips lifted up in line with their shoulders.

Is the GhostBed a Good Mattress for Average-Weight Sleepers (130–250 lbs)?

  • Average-Weight Back Sleepers –  I really liked how the GhostBed felt on my back! The memory foam layer provided plenty of contouring to my lumbar region while the latex and high-density poly foam worked to position me squarely on top of the structure.
  • Average-Weight Side Sleepers –  Though you’ll experience a bit of pressure relief at the shoulders and hips, this bed is just a little too firm for long-term side sleeping. If you switch between your back and side, I think you’ll be alright, but otherwise, I’d suggest going for a softer GhostBed model (like the Luxe ).
  • Average–Weight Stomach Sleepers –  This bed is a little too soft for these sleepers. That’s because these folks need extra lift at the hips to support an even spine alignment from the hips all the way to the shoulders.

Is the GhostBed a Good Mattress for Heavy Sleepers (over 250 lbs)?

  • Heavy Back Sleepers –  Heavy back sleepers could like the GhostBed, its latex layer should do a nice job curbing sinkage and keeping them supported throughout the night.
  • Heavy Side Sleepers –- Heavy side sleepers should opt for a different mattress. They’ll sink through this bed’s comfort foams onto its firmer base foams, which could lead to uncomfortable pressure points.
  • Heavy Stomach Sleepers –  Heavy people won’t get the support they need on the GhostBed when sleeping on their stomach. I’d recommend they opt for an innerspring mattress that offers more support around the hips and lower back.

GhostBed Mattress Pain Relief Performance

Next, let’s chat pain relief. Pain relief is closely tied to a bed’s ability to relieve pressure at the shoulders, hips, and lower back in a range of sleeping positions. To assess this attribute, I like to use a handy dandy pressure map!

Though it may sound a little technical, it’s actually quite simple: I roll this device out, hop aboard, and let the map do the rest. As I move around, the gadget records the force exerted by my body, creating a colored “map” of the pressure. For reference, blue indicates areas of low pressure and red indicates areas of high pressure.

GhostBed Pressure Relief

Back Pain – These mostly blue pressure maps tell me the GhostBed could be a great choice for sleepers with back pain! It should be able to alleviate tension at the lower back, while offering firm support that helps these sleepers maintain a healthy sleep posture. If you tend to suffer from back pain, you should also take a look at some of our best mattresses for back pain .

Shoulder Pain – The green areas around my shoulders when I was lying on my side tell me this mattress is not a good option for folks with shoulder pain. I’d recommend checking out our best mattress for shoulder pain article for better options.

Hip Pain – Similarly, the green around my hips, plus the firmer feel of this bed, makes me think folks with hip pain might prefer a more pressure-relieving bed.

GhostBed Mattress Performance for Couples

Couples have unique mattress needs including motion isolation, sex performance, cooling, and edge support. Read on below to see how the GhostBed stacks up in these categories, and to learn more about why each is important!

Motion Transfer

Motion transfer is the movement detectable from one side of the bed to the other. An important factor for all to consider, but especially those who sleep with a child, partner, or rowdy pet!

To illustrate motion transfer, I dropped a 10 lb. steel ball from heights of 4 inches, 8 inches and 12 inches and measured the disturbance it caused: the bigger the lines, the bigger the disturbance.

GhostBed Motion Transfer

These are actually pretty high motion transfer results, which tells me that you’re likely to feel a lot of movement across the bed. If you sleep with a restless partner, this may not be the best mattress for you .

The best mattress for couples usually combines good motion isolation with enough responsiveness to make moving around during sex easy. The GhostBed is definitely responsive enough to be good for sex , but if you’re easily disturbed by a restless bedmate, it might not be the best choice for you.

Couples overheat more quickly than solo sleepers, so they tend to prefer cooling mattresses. Luckily, the GhostBed is very cooling thanks to its latex foam layer, which promotes airflow throughout the mattress.

Edge Support

Edge support refers to how well supported you’ll feel while laying on the side of the bed. A mattress with great edge support feels larger, which is a perk for couples. In my opinion, the GhostBed has average edge support . This is typical for most all-foam beds, which tend to have less edge support than hybrid or innerspring models.

What is the GhostBed Mattress Made Of?

The GhostBed is built with three layers of latex, memory foam, and high-density poly foam. This combination makes for a unique feel, one that strikes a satisfying balance between pressure relief and support.

For more, let’s dive underneath the cover!


Cover –  Made of a polyester/viscose blend, this cover is soft and breathable .

Comfort Layer –  The top layer you’ll encounter is a 1.5-inch section of aerated latex foam. It’s a bouncy material with a lot of responsiveness that provides excellent mobility for moving around and changing positions. Latex is also naturally cooling , so helps to dissipate body heat throughout the structure. While latex is a fairly common mattress material, I’m intrigued by the aerated twist GhostBed puts on it, which works to encourage even more breathability and cooling. Latex is also a long-lasting material, adding some durability to the mattress.

Contour Layer –  Below the latex layer, you’ll land on one of memory foam. Gel-infused memory foam, to be exact. This distinction is an important one, because it signifies that not only are you getting the deep body-contouring and pressure relief typical of memory foam, but you also get a nice cooling buffer against its overheating tendencies. I also like that the memory foam is positioned underneath the latex layer, which ensures you won’t sink too far into the bed.

Base Layer –  And finally, the base of the bed, comprised here of 7.5 inches of high-density poly foam. This is an ultra-sturdy section that functions mostly as a support foam for the softer foams above it. Since the majority of the mattress is made up of this layer, I suspect it will lend the bed an overall firm feel.

GhostBed Materials

GhostBed Mattress Unboxing and Off-Gassing

Like any bed-in-a-box mattress, the GhostBed will undergo a 24-48 hour off-gassing and decompression period after you unbox it. I think the GhostBed releases fewer off-gassing odors than most box mattresses, so if you’re particularly worried about smell, this bed could be a good choice for you!

My Final Thoughts About the GhostBed Mattress

You did it! You made it to the end of the review! After breaking down its construction, going over its feel, and even comparing it to some of its mattress siblings, it’s time to decide: Is the GhostBed the new bed for you? I can’t make that decision for you (sorry!), but I can leave you with a few final pros and cons to help you get there on your own.

My favorite things about the GhostBed 

Firstly, I really like this bed for back sleepers ! It’s got a soft foam top layer for pressure relief at the lumbar region, but plenty of support for neutral spine alignment. I also think it could be a great choice for folks who need to move around and change positions. There’s some nice mobility here, which helps prevent any sort of “stuck-in-the-bed” feeling. The bed is also a solid value buy. Compared to similar mattresses on the market, I’d consider the GhostBed to be pretty affordable.

My GhostBed Mattress Complaints

Though the GhostBed is fairly gentle, I’d still say the mattress feels too firm for side sleepers who really need to sink in for pressure relief at the shoulders and hips. Additionally, this bed doesn’t have great motion isolation , so may not be the best option for couples.

GhostBed Shipping, Return, Warranty, and Trial

The GhostBed is a bed-in-a-box mattress, meaning it comes compressed in a box and it ships for free. You can also request white glove delivery for an additional cost where a professional will deliver and unbox/setup your new mattress and get rid of your old mattress for you. On their site, GhostBed notes that most customers receive their mattresses within 2-5 days!

If you’re not satisfied with your mattress after 30 days, you can request a free return a full refund. GhostBed will then donate your mattress to a nearby charity or recycle.

GhostBed mattresses are covered by a 20-25 year warranty that covers any defects found.

GhostBed offers a 101-night sleep trial giving you ample time to try the GhostBed out. Once the mattress is shipped to a GhostBed warehouse, your 101-night sleep trial begins.

Does GhostBed offer a warranty?

Yes, the GhostBed comes with a 20-year warranty.

How does the GhostBed ship?

The GhostBed is a bed-in-a-box mattress (which means it comes compressed in a box) and it ships for free.

Does GhostBed have a trial period?

Yes, GhostBed offers a 101-night sleep trial.

Can you flip the GhostBed?

No, the GhostBed is built from the top down and is not meant to be flipped. If you’re worried about wear and tear you can rotate the mattress 180 degrees every six months or so.

How long does GhostBed shipping take?

GhostBed mattresses usually arrive within 2-5 days after the order is placed.

Do you need a box spring with the GhostBed

You don’t need a box spring, though you can use one. Any hard, flat surface will do, and you can also use a slatted bed frame or adjustable base.

Is there an off-gassing period with the GhostBed?

Since the GhostBed is an all-foam mattress that comes compressed, there will be a bit of off-gassing. However, any odor should dissipate in a few hours.

GhostBed vs

Still unsure if the GhostBed is the right new mattress for you? It can be helpful to see how the GhostBed compares to some of its competitors. Below, I’ll compare it to two other models from popular online mattress brands, and let you know how it compares to GhostBed’s other models.

GhostBed vs Casper

  • The Casper is also an all-foam bed and has a similar construction to the GhostBed, though it uses a proprietary Airscape™ foam, which has a similar feel to latex.
  • The Casper performed a bit better on our motion transfer test, which could make it a better option for couples .
  • The Casper is a bit cheaper than the GhostBed.
  • Learn more in my full Casper mattress review. You can also check out my full GhostBed vs Casper mattress comparison .

Casper Original Mattress


The Casper Original is an all-foam mattress that is a great option for back sleepers who want a balance of support and pressure relief. Combination sleepers will appreciate this mattress's responsiveness, which makes it easy to change positions throughout the night.

Free shipping

10-year limited warranty.

"From the delivery of the box to the magical unfolding of the king size mattress to the first time laying on the bed, all smiles here! I have traveled for work for years, often sleeping on different beds at different hotels night after night."

GhostBed vs Leesa

  • The Leesa is another all-foam bed, though it uses a proprietary breathable foam layer where the GhostBed uses a latex layer.
  • Both mattresses sleep quite cool , and could be good choices for hot sleepers.
  • The Leesa is a bit less expensive than the GhostBed.
  • Check out my full Leesa mattress review here.  You can also check out my full GhostBed vs Leesa mattress comparison .

Leesa Original Mattress


Are you a fan of the feel of an all-foam mattress, but can’t seem to find one that’s bouncy enough? The Leesa original mattress might be right up your alley. This bed-in-a-box mattress provides gentle pressure relief as well as responsive support.

Soft: 5.5/10

10-year warranty, side sleeping, other models from ghostbed.

As I mentioned up top, the Original GhostBed is just one of several mattresses sold by the brand. So, allow me to introduce you to some of its mattress siblings:

GhostBed Luxe

  • Like the Original GhostBed, the GhostBed Luxe is an all-foam bed-in-a-box. However, it has a softer, more luxurious feel .
  • It’s also designed with cooling in mind, so could be a nice option for folks who overheat in the night.
  • Since it’s gentler than the Original GhostBed, it could work wonders for side sleepers in need of deep pressure relief at the shoulders and hips.
  • For more, check out my full GhostBed Luxe mattress review .

GhostBed Luxe Mattress

ghostbed luxe mattress

Designed with cooling in mind, the GhostBed Luxe is fantastic for those who sleep hot at night. It’s made with a gel-foam layer, which is cooler than traditional memory foam, but still offers great sinkage and relief for side sleepers.

Medium-firm: 6.5/10

25-year warranty, ghostbed flex.

  • The GhostBed Flex is a hybrid mattress , so combines gentle foams with sturdy coils for bouncy yet pressure-relieving structure.
  • In general, I’d recommend the Flex for combo sleepers who like to switch between their back and side while they snooze.
  • It also did well on my motion transfer test, so could be a nice choice for couples!
  • Read more at my full GhostBed Flex mattress review .

GhostBed Flex Mattress

GhostBed Flex Cover

The GhostBed Flex uses a combination of soft memory foam and bouncy coils to provide nice pressure relief without the feeling of being stuck in the mattress. The GhostBed Flex also uses high-tech materials to help you sleep cool throughout the night.

GhostBed 3D Matrix

  • Like the Flex, the GhostBed 3D Matrix is also a hybrid mattress . However, it’s got more of a medium firm feel that could be great for combo sleepers.
  • The Matrix is also incredibly bouncy , so might be a nice option for those in search of fantastic mobility.
  • And if cooling is an important factor for you, you’ll be happy to know the Matrix sleeps super cool thanks to its cooling cover and gel memory foam comfort layer.
  • See more at my full GhostBed 3D Matrix mattress review .

GhostBed 3D Matrix Mattress

GhostBed 3D Matrix Mattress

The GhostBed 3D Matrix is a great hybrid mattress with a medium firmness that I like for combination sleepers. It also has a nice breathable cover to help you sleep cool through the night making it great for hot sleepers.

Our Review Process

At Sleepopolis, our team of Certified Sleep Science Coaches personally test each mattress. We start by unboxing the mattress to figure out how difficult (or easy) it is to get the mattress from the box to the bed. Then, we spend time laying on the bed in different positions, taking time to assess it on our backs, stomachs, and sides. Next, we perform our Sleepopolis tests, using specialized tools to measure qualities like motion transfer, bounce, and pressure relief. Our last step is to open up the mattress and take a look at each layer. These steps allow us to give our final verdict on the mattress. Jump back to our mattress picks.

I love my mattress! The cooling effect has changed my sleep. I would wake up several times during the night sweating. Now with the cooling mattress and pillows I am sleeping ‘cool’ and not waking up in a pool of sweat! It is the best purchase ever. I recently purchased the adjustable base too! Love it! Thank you GhostBed!

Exceptional mattress and comfortable high quality sheets!

We purchased a set of ghost sheets for our new ghost mattress and cannot say enough about this great product! The mattress is incredibly comfortable and the sheets are such great quality. They fit the mattress perfectly, are nice and crisp and the material sleeps cool. They wash very nicely as well. Would definitely recommend your products!

GhostBed has changed my life!!!

GhostBed has changed my life!!! Having fibromyalgia, tendonitis and frozen shoulder, I am often laid up in bed; now I have the option to lounge and the amazing comfort to sleep on my side or back in a multitude of positions. Extra bonus, my husband's snoring is down to a dull roar, with his head slightly raised!!!

Best Mattress EVER!

So glad we took a chance with getting this mattress. We LOVE it & between the warranty, free trial & awesome customer service, it was a win-win all the way around!!!

The best sleep in years! I have already been recommending people about my new GhostBed. Great buy especially with the 20 year warranty. You really can't beat that. 👍

GhostBed Mattress Video Review

Curious to get a feel for what the GhostBed is made of, and how it performs? Take a minute to check out our complete video review of the original GhostBed mattress.

GhostBed Mattress Firmness and Feel

When we review a mattress, we usually look at its firmness and feel first. This gives us a good initial idea of who the mattress will be a good fit for. Keep reading to find out how firm the GhostBed mattress is and exactly what it feels like.

How Firm Is the GhostBed?

We give the GhostBed an 8 out of 10 on the firmness scale , which means it’s firmer-than-average. Much of this firmness can be chalked up to the high-density support foam, which is designed to provide a stable sleeping surface that’s well-suited to back sleepers and stomach sleepers, in particular.

Sleeping on the GhostBed

For most back sleepers, the GhostBed will deliver just the right level of support, allowing hips to sink into the mattress without feeling like you’re bottoming out. Some lightweight back sleepers may find the mattress a little too firm, but by and large, the GhostBed is one of the best mattresses for back sleepers . Stomach sleepers should also find the support they require under the hips.

GhostBed Mattress - Stomach Sleeping

For side sleepers, the GhostBed isn’t as easy to recommend. It’s too firm, and you may feel like there’s too much pressure bunching up at your shoulder and hip. Most side sleepers will want to look for a mattress with a little more give .

What Does the GhostBed Feel Like?

Sleepers who favor the balanced feel of traditional foam mattresses will find much to love about the GhostBed. The mattress is responsive and accommodates movement well , which means it’s a good, comfortable option for those who tend to shift positions during the night.

Average Weight Sleepers – 130 lbs to 230 lbs

For back sleepers who are closer to the low end of this weight range, it’s possible that the GhostBed will feel a little bit too firm . Those closer to 230 lbs will likely find that it’s just the right balance of comfort and support.

Stomach sleepers in this weight range should similarly find the GhostBed to be comfortable and supportive. However, for average weight side sleepers, the GhostBed isn’t going to be the best match; it simply doesn’t have enough give to relieve pressure points.

Heavyweight Sleepers – Over 230 lbs

Most heavyweight back sleepers should find the GhostBed to be just about perfect , though we’ll warn that those who surpass the 300 lbs range may want to consider a mattress that’s made with coils for additional durability and support.

Similarly, for stomach sleepers who are around 230 lbs, the GhostBed should offer just the right level of firmness. Those closer to 300 lbs, however, may want to look for a sturdier mattress . And for side sleepers in the heavyweight category, the GhostBed is likely to feel too firm to be truly comfortable.

Lightweight Sleepers – Under 130 lbs

Lightweight back sleepers and side sleepers alike are cautioned that the GhostBed may feel too firm; there may be some real discomfort at the shoulders and hips, especially for those who prefer side sleeping. However, lightweight stomach sleepers should feel right at home on the GhostBed.

GhostBed Mattress Construction

Now, let’s look under the cover of the GhostBed mattress and see exactly what is inside. We’ll look at each layer one by one and see what it does for the overall performance of the GhostBed.

The cover of the GhostBed is made with a stretchy polyester material , which is very thin and breathable. It does a more than satisfactory job of keeping the mattress cool.

Comfort Layers

Under the cover, the GhostBed offers 1.5” of aerated latex foam . It’s important to note that this is synthetic latex, so those looking for an all-natural or organic option may want to look elsewhere. From a performance perspective, though, this latex does the trick: It’s responsive and it’s ventilated to keep you cool throughout the night.

GhostBed Mattress - Construction And Foam Layers

Under that, you’ll find another 2” of gel memory foam , further defense against night sweats and stickiness. It also adds a bit more pressure relief to the top of the mattress.

Support Layer

The GhostBed has 7.5” of high-density foam at its base, helping keep the mattress firm, steady, and stable.

Mattress Height

In total, the GhostBed mattress is 11” tall .

GhostBed Mattress Performance

We’ve explained what the GhostBed is made of, and what it feels like… but for many shoppers, the real test is how the mattress performs. Let’s see how the GhostBed did!

Sleeping Hot or Cold

The GhostBed team makes a big deal about how cool their mattress runs… and by and large, it lives up to the hype. GhostBed uses materials that are well-known for their cooling potential , including latex and gel. And, added ventilation ensures plenty of air can move through the mattress, preventing too much body heat retention – this mattress is easy to recommend to hot sleepers.

Motion Transfer

The GhostBed has some bounce to it, which is welcome news for combination sleepers but not so much for couples. The mattress doesn’t isolate motion very well, and partners who share the bed are likely to disrupt one another during the night. It might not be the best mattress for couples .

Edge Support

The sturdy foam construction of the GhostBed ensures excellent edge support . You’ll feel perfectly steady and well-supported as you sit at the corner or sleep at the edge of your mattress.

GhostBed Mattress - Edge Support

This is a well-constructed mattress that uses high-quality materials. We consider it to be highly durable, and it should hold up well for seven to 10 years.


When you first unbox your GhostBed, you may notice a faint chemical smell . This may be slightly off-putting, but we found that it completely dissipated in under 48 hours. This is to be expected from a bed in a box mattress.

When we moved around on the GhostBed, we didn’t hear it make any noise at all.

It’s really easy to move around and change positions on the GhostBed. We’d rate it as an excellent mattress for sex, as partners should have no trouble moving around.

The GhostBed comes with a 101-night sleep trial and a 20-year warranty , both of which should offer some confidence as you think about buying the product.

Overall Rating

Ghostbed company policies.

In addition to learning all about the mattress, it’s important to understand a company’s policies before making a final decision.

The GhostBed mattress is covered by a 20-year limited warranty . However, certain regulations and fees may apply after 10 years have passed.

Learn more about understanding a mattress warranty .

Sleep Trial

GhostBed offers a 101-night sleep trial and suggests taking 30 to 60 nights to make your decision. This gives you time to privately try the mattress and ensure that it meets all of your sleep needs.

Return Policy

If you ultimately decide that you don’t love the GhostBed mattress after a minimum of 30 nights, you can visit the company’s Return Request page for a free and easy return process .

Common GhostBed Mattress Complaints

Although the GhostBed is advertised as a cooler mattress, heavyweight sleepers and couples have claimed that the GhostBed sleeps too hot . If you fall into this category, you may want to consider the GhostBed 3D Matrix instead which can offer an even cooler night’s sleep.

Another common complaint we see is about the return policy . Many customers don’t realize that GhostBed requires you to keep your mattress for the first 30 days of your sleep trial period to give yourself time to adjust to the mattress and break it in. Be sure you read the fine print before buying to fully understand!

How Does the GhostBed Compare to Other Mattresses?

Before making your final decision about the GhostBed, it may be helpful to compare it with some of its top competitors. Here’s a quick evaluation of the original GhostBed versus the Purple and the Casper, two other popular online mattresses.

Don’t forget to also look at our mattress comparisons page for other GhostBed comparisons like GhostBed vs Leesa and GhostBed vs Nectar !

GhostBed vs. Original Purple Mattress Comparison

The Purple and the GhostBed are different in a number of ways , starting with their construction. The Purple has a comfort layer made with a gel grid, which adapts its firmness to the level of pressure placed on it. The GhostBed, meanwhile, offers a more traditional memory foam blended with aerated latex.

Purple Mattress - Construction And Layers

These different comfort layers mean the mattresses are dissimilar in their firmness level, too: The GhostBed is an 8.0 out of 10 (firmer-than-average) while the Purple is 6.5 out of 10 (a little softer-than-average).

The two mattresses also feel very different. The Purple mattress is known for a feeling that’s simultaneously squishy and supportive. The GhostBed, on the other hand, is firmer and sturdier , but still offers some cushioning.

Price-wise, they’re both pretty close.

Who Should Get the GhostBed?

  • Those who prefer their mattress to be firm
  • Those who like a more balanced foam feel

Who Should Get the Purple?

  • Side and combination sleepers
  • Hot sleepers

RELATED: Purple Mattress Review

GhostBed vs. Casper Mattress Comparison

And how about the GhostBed vs. the best-selling Casper original mattress ? In some ways, these mattresses are pretty similar; specifically, they’re both made entirely of foam .

One important difference is that the Casper is zoned for more targeted pressure relief and lumbar support, something the GhostBed doesn’t offer. When it comes to firmness, they’re somewhat similar: We rate GhostBed as an 8.0 out of 10, and the Casper as a 7.5 out of 10.

Casper Mattress - Construction And Foam Layers

In terms of feel, both offer a lot of balance, though the GhostBed has a little more of a bounce. And in terms of price, these are, once again, pretty comparable.

  • Those who like a slightly firmer mattress

Who Should Get the Casper?

  • Back sleepers
  • Lighter people

GhostBed Mattress FAQs

Now, we would like to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about the GhostBed mattress.

Is GhostBed a good mattress?

The GhostBed is indeed a good mattress, but it is going to be a better fit for some people and not the best fit for others. For example, it should be a good match for stomach sleepers, hot sleepers, and those who want a more affordable latex mattress. It might not work well for side sleepers and those who want something with a slower-moving feel.

Is GhostBed good for side sleepers?

In our experience, the GhostBed mattress is not good for side sleepers. It is a firmer-than-average mattress and might not provide enough pressure relief for the shoulders and hips.

How long do GhostBed mattresses last?

Considering the construction and materials of the GhostBed mattress, it should last for at least seven years, if not more. This will depend greatly on your size and how often you use the mattress.

Do you need a box spring with a GhostBed mattress?

The GhostBed fits on multiple bases including box springs, slotted frames, and adjustable frames.

Where are GhostBed mattresses made?

GhostBed mattresses are proudly made in the United States. As a bonus, you’ll experience fast shipping times from one of their many shipping locations nationwide!

Are GhostBed mattresses chemical-free?

Yes, all of their mattresses are chemical-free. They refrain from using any harmful chemicals in their mattress production and all materials used are CertiPur-US approved.

We’ll help you decide if the GhostBed Classic is the right mattress for you based on criteria like cooling, firmness, and motion transfer.

Have you ever wanted to sleep better, cooler, or longer?

Bed-in-a-box brand GhostBed aims to deliver just that. A player in the mattress game for a while, GhostBed’s flagship mattress combines the springy conformance of latex with the unique cradling of memory foam.

How do you know if the GhostBed Classic is the right fit for you? In our in-depth GhostBed mattress review , we evaluate how this mattress performed in cooling, pressure relief, and more. We also examine different body types and sleep positions so that you can determine if this mattress checks all your boxes.

GhostBed Mattress

Product Image of GhostBed

GhostBed is packed with quality foams and available for an affordable price that will not spook you.

Trial Period

Shipping method, free shipping minus hi and ak, medium-firm: 6.5/10, 20-year warranty, price range.

We recommend this mattress for the following sleeper types:

Hot Sleepers

Back sleeping, stomach sleeping, financing options.

Financing options are available for this mattress.

Who We Recommend the GhostBed Classic For:

  • Combo sleepers – The quick-responding latex surface and the bounce from the dense foam base make repositioning a cinch, while the medium-firm feel should accommodate a variety of sleep positions. Combination sleepers who like to switch it up should welcome these features.
  • Couples – The motion-isolating benefits of the foam combined with the cooling aerated latex and gel-infused memory foam make the GhostBed a good choice for couples. Those who bunk with a restless sleeper should be able to rest uninterrupted by their partner’s movements.
  • Hot sleepers – Its breathable cover and aerated latex keep the surface cool, and the memory foam materials are positioned away from the cover and infused with gel so that heat shouldn’t be trapped next to the body.

Who We Don’t Recommend the GhostBed Classic For:

  • People who prefer the classic feel of memory foam – The inclusion of high-quality gel memory foam offers deep pressure relief, especially for side sleepers, but the quick-responding latex surface and dense base should keep you resting closer to the surface. Although this makes the mattress easier to reposition on, you likely won’t experience the deep hug feel associated with traditional memory foam .
  • Lightweight Sleepers – Folks on the lighter side of the scale may find that the GhostBed is too firm for them to be truly comfortable. These petite sleepers won’t be able to sink enough to experience pressure relief or cushioning.

First Impressions: Firmness & Feel

Firmness scale: 6.5/10 (medium firm).

Please remember that firmness is a subjective characteristic and your shape will dictate how you experience a bed. A heavier person whose weight can more easily push through softer comfort and support layers may experience a bed as softer than a lightweight person. The way you are shaped could also play a role here. Consider your weight, shape, and size when evaluating firmness scores.

ghostbed classic mattress reviews

When measuring a mattress’s firmness , we rate how it feels on a 1-10 scale with 1 being the most soft. We rated the GhostBed Classic a 6.5 out of 10, which makes it just slightly firmer than medium-firm. This firmness level should work especially well for average-weight and heavyweight sleepers, as it provides a bit more pushback and support without sacrificing comfort.

Lightweight sleepers may find that they don’t sink enough to enjoy the same level of cushioning, though, and are probably better off with a softer mattress that’s closer to 5 out of 10 in the firmness scale.

How Does It Feel?

When you first lie down on this mattress, you should notice the quick-response time of the latex which conforms to your shape without making you feel trapped in the mattress. As your weight settles, most sleepers should start slowly interacting with the gel memory layer for deep pressure relief. You should also notice a decent amount of cooling thanks to the aerated latex and gel that is used in the memory layer.

What We Like About the GhostBed Classic

  • Cooling features – This mattress uses a breathable cover, naturally cooling latex, and gel-infused memory foam to help dissipate heat and provide a comfortable sleeping environment.
  • Responsive – If you’re a combination sleepers who repositions at night, this bed responds quickly to movement so that you won’t feel that you are stuck or sinking every time you flip over.
  • Budget-friendly – For shoppers on a budget, the GhostBed Classic offers an affordable, yet high-quality mattress experience. Latex is considered the most durable mattress material, which also ensures this bed should stand the test of time.

Our GhostBed Classic Complaints

  • May be too firm for some sleepers – The slightly higher firmness level of the GhostBed means that it may not accommodate as wide of a range of sleepers as other, more medium-firm or plush mattresses .
  • Doesn’t satisfy those who prefer the feeling of coils – The GhostBed is a hybrid mattress made from memory foam and latex, which means it won’t provide exactly the same feel as other hybrid beds made with coils. While the latex material is bouncy and supportive, a mattress that contains coils should still have noticeably more pushback, giving you the feeling of sleeping ‘on’ the bed.
  • Thinner profile – At 11 inches tall, the GhostBed won’t take up as much space as a thicker, more robust mattress. For those who want their mattress to be the focal point of their bedroom, the GhostBed’s thinner profile may be disappointing to some.

Testing the GhostBed Classic Mattress: How it Performed

How did the GhostBed Classic stack up in our testing? To determine its performance, we tested the GhostBed Classic for side, stomach and back sleepers to better understand which sleep positions that this mattress is best suited for. Body weight can also affect how you experience a mattress so we made sure to consider this factor as well. We also examined qualities like supportiveness, responsiveness, and motion isolation to decide if it’s a good fit for couples.

Sleeping Positions for Different Body Types

This product’s weight limit is set at 750 pounds, which is significantly higher than many other bed-in-a-box foam mattresses. However, GhostBed does recommend that individuals over 300 pounds consider the King size for greater support and space.

Side Sleepers

  • Lightweight Sleepers – The firmness of the GhostBed is likely too high for lightweight side sleepers. This means it may be too firm to adequately contour to these sleepers hips and shoulders, which may lead to pressure build up around the shoulders and hips.
  • Average Weight Sleepers – Average-weight folks who sleep on their sides should experience a nice level of pressure relief. These sleepers should sink into the first couple of layers just enough for adequate cushioning. However, if you’re on the lighter side of average-weight, you may find that this bed is just too firm over time.
  • Heavyweight Sleepers – The GhostBed’s firm upper layers should provide substantial support and pressure relief without making these sleepers feel as if they are sinking to the bottom.

Back Sleepers

  • Lightweight Sleepers – Although some lightweight back sleepers may find this bed to be a bit too firm, we think many should enjoy the support and spine alignment from the dense foam base and latex layer.
  • Average Weight Sleepers – The foam layers of the GhostBed Classic provide ample contouring for the lower back while the base layer works to keep your spine aligned.
  • Heavyweight Sleepers – Heavyweight snoozers should find that the latex layer of this mattress does a good job at keeping them from sinking too far down, as well as give them solid support.

Stomach Sleepers

  • Lightweight Sleepers – Lightweight stomach sleepers should find that this bed gives them comfortable, bouncy support along with great spinal alignment. However, some may find the firmness a bit unforgiving and unable to cushion their chest and shoulders properly.
  • Average Weight Sleepers – Many average-weight stomach sleepers should feel well-supported and cushioned by this mattress. However, some stomach sleepers who weigh on the heavier side of average-weight may find the GhostBed unsupportive which can cause sagging hips and a misaligned spine.
  • Heavyweight Sleepers – Heavyweight stomach sleepers need the most support out of any other type since these sleepers tend to sink into the mattress more. While the GhostBed may work well for some, its lack of coils and slightly firm feel may not be supportive enough to keep heavier sleepers’ hips raised and spine aligned.

Pressure Relief & Pain

Mattresses need to take pressure off your hips and shoulders to keep you from waking with aches and pains. Side sleepers in particular may experience a lot of pressure building up because they put a good amount of weight on small parts of the body. The GhostBed Classic contains two pressure-relieving materials – latex and memory foam – which softly conform to your body’s curves to maintain a comfortable position and melt away any pressure buildup.

Back Pain –  The GhostBed’s pressure-relieving latex layer should help eliminate lower back pain, and the supportive base helps with spinal alignment. Overall, this should be a great choice for those with back pain. Hip Pain –  While the Ghosted does excel at pressure relief, it may still be too firm for some sleepers to experience hip pain relief. Those who experience hip pain may be better served from a softer mattress that provides a deeper sink for greater pressure relief. Shoulder Pain –  When you sleep on your side, you concentrate a good bit of your weight onto your shoulder which can lead to aches and pains. The GhostBed should relieve shoulder pain for many, but some sleepers may crave a softer mattress that cradles this area more.

If your bed is too soft and doesn’t have a proper support system, your spine remains in an unnatural position throughout the night. This could lead to major back problems if repeated over a long period of time, but in the short term, it may create aches and pains in, especially in the back-sleeping position.

The thick, high-density foam base provides some bounce, as does the surface layer of latex, but this is slightly muffled by the memory foam layer that is sandwiched between the two. Overall, the bed has a medium bounce that should provide adequate support and assist with repositioning so you don’t feel stuck.

Motion Transfer

GhostBed performs well when it comes to motion isolation , as we typically expect from foam constructions. Foam absorbs and muffles vibrations before they transfer and disturb a partner sleeping on the other side. You should not have a problem with being woken by movement if you sleep light and this is a specific concern of yours.

Temperature Regulation / Cooling

Hot sleepers need a cooling mattress to feel comfortable at night. Designed with a breathable polyester/viscose blend cover, aerated latex, and gel-infused memory foam, GhostBed should help hot sleepers have a cool trip to dreamland. This mattress also keeps your body out of contact with heat-trapping foams in the middle and bottom of the bed, which promotes greater temperature regulation.

Performance for Couples

The GhostBed’s well-rounded features should make it a good choice for most couples . If your sleepmate tosses and turns through the night, the GhostBed’s excellent motion isolation should keep both partners happy and undisturbed by the other’s movements. Additionally, the slightly firmer feel should be supportive enough for most co-sleepers, while the cooling features help keep both parties comfortable. For sexually-active couples especially, the bounciness of the latex layer should go a long way in keeping both partners happy.

Preference-based Features


If convenience is important to your mattress-buying experience, you should be pleased to know that GhostBed requires no coordination with a delivery service. In fact, this bed is vacuum-sealed, rolled up in a box, and placed right on your doorstep.

Environmental Initiatives

This product comes from the owners of Nature’s Sleep and is constantly working to reduce packaging, freight space, and dependence on fossil fuels – all to minimize their carbon footprint.

Adjustable Base Compatible

Handcrafted in the USA

Construction: what’s inside the ghostbed classic.

The GhostBed Classic is 11 inches thick and contains three layers. Starting from the outside, the cover contains a plush blend of polyester and viscose, which was designed to be breathable and wick away moisture. It is fully removable as well, which is convenient for spot cleaning.

  • On top lies a soft and breathable cover made of a polyester/viscose blend. Directly underneath the cover you’ll find 1.5 inches of Continuous Aerated Latex foam that provides bounce and responsiveness which assists in repositioning. This naturally heat-resistant material is also aerated with channels to promote airflow and temperature regulation.
  • Sandwiched in the middle is 2 inches of gel memory foam, which provides a deeper level of pressure relief and a transition to the base. This layer is positioned away from the body and infused with gel to reduce possible heat retention and overheating on the surface. Additionally, the memory foam layer underneath the latex helps keep sleepers from sinking too far down in the bed, and it should also provide body-contouring and pressure relief.
  • The third layer is 7.5 inches of dense poly foam which gives the mattress a durable structure. Designed to absorb and distribute your body weight, this layer also provides enough support to keep your spine in good alignment, regardless of sleep position.

Overall Summary

The GhostBed Classic’s unique construction combines the bounce of latex with the pressure relief of memory foam. Its affordable price point and cooling properties make it an attractive option for a variety of sleepers.

ghostbed classic mattress reviews

Back sleepers need reinforced support around the lumbar area to keep their spine straight. The GhostBed Classic’s supportive latex and dense poly foam base help support neutral spine alignment, while the soft memory foam layer conforms to and supports the natural curve of their back.

ghostbed classic mattress reviews

The GhostBed Classic is a bit firmer than average, so most stomach sleepers should experience good spinal alignment as the thick supportive layers prevent their hips from sinking too low.

ghostbed classic mattress reviews

Combination Sleepers

The GhostBed Classic’s latex layer promotes plenty of bounce which makes repositioning a breeze. Those who move around a lot should be comfortable in most positions due to the neutral feel and contouring from the memory foam layers.

ghostbed classic mattress reviews

If you share your mattress with a partner, you should find that the GhostBed Classic meets most of your needs well. The construction isolates motion well, while the latex creates bounce which is appealing to sexually-active couples. Couple also shouldn’t overheat thanks to this bed’s cooling properties.

ghostbed classic mattress reviews

Heavy Sleepers

Heavier sleepers should feel well-supported by this mattress’s dense poly foam base and thick latex layer. These sleepers should find that they sink through the upper comfort layers and find deeper support in the lower sections of the bed.

ghostbed classic mattress reviews

Lightweight Sleepers

Those on the lighter side should love the upper comfort layers, but some lightweight sleepers may find the bed too firm and unable to come into contact with the lower support layers.

Average Weight Sleepers

Average-weight back sleepers should enjoy both the contouring softness of the top layers and the supportive base that helps promote spinal alignment. Those who sleep on their sides may find that too much pressure builds up around their hips and shoulders, and stomach sleepers could feel as if they are sinking too far into the bed.

Overall Value

The GhostBed Classic packs a lot of value with its latex and dense foam design. With a 25-year warranty and affordable price point, the GhostBed Classic may be a smart investment for many.

Our Verdict

The GhostBed Classic is a unique mattress that has a different take on the traditional all-foam design. By combining latex with gel-infused memory foam, the GhostBed Classic offers a cooling, pressure-relieving night’s rest.

We think that combination sleepers, heavyweight sleepers, and couples who can’t agree on a firmness level should be fans of the GhostBed Classic.

Hot sleepers should also find that the aerated latex and cooling-gel infused foam should provide them with a mattress that will turn their body heat down. However, lighter folks who prefer to sleep on their sides may want to find a bed that offers more pressure relief.

Last updated on November 17, 2023

The GhostBed Classic is a latex and gel foam mattress. It is from an American-based company that sells in Canada.

  • 11-inch height
  • One firmness option
  • Delivered in a box

Note that Ghostbed’s customer service complaints in the public domain are deeply troubling (see below).

Key Features

  • Made in Canada or USA
  • Perforated latex foam
  • Cooling gel foam
  • 6 sizes to choose from
  • Free shipping
  • 101-night trial
  • 20-year warranty

Will GhostBed’s Negative Consumer Reviews and High Prices Scare Mattress Shoppers Away?

Despite seemingly good reviews on Ghostbed’s website, poor experiences raised by customers on Consumer Affairs , TrustPilot , Better Business Bureau , and CBC’s Go Public raise serious concerns.

For example, take a look at the following October 2023 BBB Complaint 20714912:

ghostbed classic mattress reviews

In essence, what they’re saying to the customer publicly, is that after returning the mattress, the customer will owe Ghostbed more money than they paid to purchase the mattress, because the customer must pay for the discounts that were applied to the order.

It’s important to note that there are reputable online mattress companies, like Douglas from, who stand behind their risk-free guarantee and offer a full refund if a customer doesn’t love their mattress for whatever reason, as do the majority of companies whose mattresses we review on Mattress Reviews.

Product Features

When it comes to features, GhostBed Classic has the ingredients of a good mattress. Perforated latex and gel foam layers promise a cool sleep, and a 20-year warranty offers the assurance that the mattress will last many years.

If you’re one of the roughly 39% of mattress shoppers open to purchasing a latex mattress, GhostBed Classic may be worth considering.

However, this mattress’s relatively high regular price ($1,695 CAD for a queen) might keep it outside the budget of many shoppers, even though it avoids tariffs by manufacturing in Canada.

If you want a premium cooling gel foam mattress with advanced features and is from a brand Canadian owned and operated, we recommend Douglas ($799).

First Impressions: Straight Out of the Box

The Arrival

GhostBed Classic can be purchased online from the GhostBed website. Versions of GhostBed mattresses might also be available at retailers like Home Depot, Hudson’s Bay, and Loblaws.

Shipping is free for all Canadian and American addresses. The mattress usually ships within 24 hours and arrives within 2–5 business days.

The Unboxing

Like other bed-in-a-box mattresses, GhostBed Classic is simple to unpack. Once unboxed, the mattress expands to 11 inches in height within a few hours . Although GhostBed customer service says the mattress corners may take 24–48 hours to fully decompress.

GhostBed Classic features a slate grey fabric sidewall, with light grey stitching in diamond patterns. The GhostBed brand logo is attached to the bottom right corner at the foot of the mattress. The top cover is entirely white, with slightly raised circles for texture. (Consider buying their mattress protector for $159 CAD because the top cover is not machine washable.)

Sleepers who like mattresses with a moderate amount of cushioning and ‘hug’ will feel comfortable on GhostBed Classic. (For more details, see the next section for testing conducted by third-party engineers.)

When you lie down on GhostBed Classic, the aerated latex and gel foam layers work together to provide some cooling, as well as a bit of bounce to help with shifting into a different sleeping position.

Official Test Results: How Do Engineers Rate GhostBed Classic?

The following results were determined by licensed 3rd-party engineers, commissioned by us:.

To be able to accurately rate and compare the performance of the mattresses reviewed on this website, it was necessary to hire licensed 3rd-party engineers. Their independence and operating standards help to ensure the results remain unbiased, valid, and reliable. Each mattress was evaluated using the same strict methodology to protect the overall integrity of the results. The full report is linked below and has been given the official stamp of approval from an APEGA-certified engineer operating under a strict ethical code of conduct.

*Be advised: Mattress testing conducted outside of this professional standard poses a greater risk of validity errors or reviewer bias.*

How Our Engineers Test Each Mattress:

ghostbed classic mattress reviews

Feel & Firmness

The GhostBed Classic mattress has a medium level of firmness. According to the testing conducted by third-party engineers (commissioned by us), it comes in at 5.2 / 10 on the firmness spectrum.

With its moderate amount of sinkage, GhostBed Classic should feel comfortable to a wide range of body types and sleeping positions.

Keep in mind, most other online mattresses are slightly more firm than GhostBed Classic so that they are better able to accommodate the comfort preferences of individuals who weigh more than 150 lbs. These are often described as ‘medium-firm’ mattresses.

ghostbed classic mattress reviews

Edge Support

According to the testing conducted by third-party engineers (commissioned by us), GhostBed Classic’s edge-support rating is 6.5 / 10. This is above average for an all-foam mattress. Innerspring and hybrid mattresses, due to the structural rigidity of a spring or pocketed coil layer, tend to have the highest edge-support ratings. 

A lower edge-support rating could mean that owners will feel like they’re sinking into the foam when they are sitting on the side of the bed, making it harder to get out of bed compared to a mattress with a reinforced support layer.

Motion Isolation

Motion isolation in foam mattresses is usually very good and one of the main reasons couples make the switch from innerspring to all-foam. According to the testing conducted by third-party engineers (commissioned by us), GhostBed Classic scored 7.2 / 10 on the motion isolation scale.

This score is slightly above average for all-foam mattresses tested on this site. Owners can expect movement transfer and vibration to be well muted on GhostBed Classic.

Because foam mattresses tend to provide good motion isolation, that usually translates to a lower bounce rating compared to innerspring and hybrid mattresses. According to the testing conducted by third-party engineers (commissioned by us), GhostBed Classic’s bounce score is 3.1 / 10. 

Despite its latex foam layer (which GhostBed claims to provide ‘a nice springy, feel’), this is an average rating for an all-foam mattress. This means that on GhostBed Classic, some people may need to use a bit of effort to shift themselves into a different sleeping position.

Mattress Construction: What’s GhostBed Classic Made Of?

ghostbed classic mattress reviews

GhostBed Classic is available only in one firmness option, which is a similar approach to other bed-in-box brands like Endy, Casper, and Douglas.

GhostBed Classic Mattress Layers

ghostbed classic mattress reviews

GhostBed Classic contains three layers of foam and latex. Like other combination foam mattresses, the layers of GhostBed Classic work together to provide a good balance of comfort and support.

  • First layer: 1.5 inches of aerated latex foam. This top layer provides immediate cushioning as you lie down. Small holes in the foam should help warm air escape the sleep surface, providing a cooler sleep. This layer also contains latex, which can feel bouncier compared to conventional foam. However, our engineer results above suggest it has an average level of bounce. Layer density: Unspecified.
  • Second layer: 2 inches of cooling gel foam. This bright-blue-coloured transition foam provides an overall balance between the top and bottom layers. Since it is made of cooling gel, this layer can also help transfer heat away from the body. Layer density: Unspecified.
  • Third layer: 7.5 inches of high-density base foam. This support layer helps give the mattress its structure and prevents sleepers from sinking in too far. It also provides a final layer of firmness for proper spinal alignment. Layer density: Unspecified.

Of note: Foam density or origin information for GhostBed Classic is not publicly available.

ghostbed classic mattress reviews

GhostBed Classic Mattress Cover

The GhostBed Classic mattress has a white-coloured cover with raised circular stitching for added texture. Fabric is a viscose and polyester blend, which feels soft and should offer good breathability.

The top cover on GhostBed Classic is NOT machine washable and cannot be removed . To spot-clean spills or stains, GhostBed recommends scrubbing with a mild detergent and cold water only.

Brand Bio: What's the Story Behind GhostBed?

ghostbed classic mattress reviews

GhostBed is a mattress brand owned by parent company Nature’s Sleep — which was founded by Marc Werner in 2001. Marc was originally inspired to create a mattress after experiencing discomfort in bed following three neck surgeries. In addition to a full range of mattresses, GhostBed also sells branded bed frames, bedding, pillows, and other accessories.

Delivery, Sleep Trial & Returns

ghostbed classic mattress reviews

GhostBed uses FedEx to deliver to all parts of Canada. In some cases, the delivery can be left outside while the customer is away from home. Shipping is free , even for customers in remote areas. GhostBed customers can expect their new mattress within 2 to 5 business days.

Like many bed-in-a-box companies, GhostBed heavily promotes its mattress sleep trial. At 101 nights, this sleep trial is average in length when compared to other online brands. The company also offers free mattress pick-up and a full refund when returned. NOTE: GhostBed has been the subject of a CBC News story regarding customers unable to return their mattress for a refund, along with other customer service issues.

It is worth noting that did not complete the return process, but received this information via the FAQ section on GhostBed’s website.

Final Thoughts on GhostBed Classic

With an overall rating of 6.9, GhostBed scores a little above average. But there are three aspects to GhostBed Classic that keep it below our top made-in-Canada mattresses. First is their well publicized customer complaints .

Second is cost: At $1,695 CAD (for a queen), GhostBed Classic’s regular price is much higher than many competitors , many of whom come in under the $1,500 mark. Third is foam quality: This mattress does not include a layer of high-density memory foam , which in general is more durable and longer lasting than conventional foam.

For a premium memory foam mattress that ticks those boxes, we recommend Octave . Or if you want to save even more on a cooling gel mattress with a medium-firm feel , check out Douglas .

Ghostbed's Specifics

GhostBed offers seven mattresses: the GhostBed Classic , the GhostBed Luxe , Ghostbed Flex , the Ghostbed 3D Matrix® , the GhostBed SmartBed - 3D Matrix® , the GhostBed Natural , and their newest Venus Williams Legend mattress. The Classic and Luxe are all foam mattresses, while the Flex, 3D Matrix, and Natural are hybrid mattresses featuring pocket springs. The newer Venus Williams Legend mattress is the only model available in both an all foam and hybrid option, and the SmartBed - 3D Matrix features smart sensors and adjustable air chambers.

Quality of Materials

Ghostbed uses quality foam and latex in their mattresses , and also have patented proprietary gel polymer in their 3D Matrix mattress . Also, they include cooling gel infused memory foam and response foam in their mattresses as well. We'll go through all of their mattresses in more detail below. Here is what's inside the original GhostBed Classic :

Layer 1: The plush cover is a synthetic blend fabric that is stretchy and breathable .

Layer 2: A 1.5'' aerated latex foam layer is right under the cover. The aeration keeps things cool while the latex provides a nice bounce and resilience , while not being too firm.

Layer 3: The next layer is 2 inches of gel foam, which further helps with heat retention and provides pressure relief , which helps cut down on tossing and turning.

Layer 4: The last layer is the 7.5'' of support foam that is made to give comfortable resistance for the back and spine and keep the bed in the same shape for longer.

The GhostBed Luxe has many more layers devoted to cooling and comes at a much higher price point. Here is what's inside:

Layer 1: It all starts in the cover -- .5'' of plush Ghost Ice fabric that reacts to your body heat to provide a cooler sleep surface.

Layer 2: 1'' of gel memory foam adds to a contouring feel to the top layer.

Layer 3: A layer of cooling fiber helps with airflow to keep the top of the mattress comfortable.

Layer 4: A layer of proprietary Ghost Ice memory foam further helps to regulate heat and keep the mattress cool.

Layer 5: Next is 2'' of gel memory foam provides pressure relief while also drawing heat away from the body.

Layer 6: A 2'' layer of exclusive Ghost Bounce memory foam combines the countouring feeling of memory foam and the responsiveness of latex to provide the perfect balanced support .

Layer 7: Finally, the support core finishes things off by creating a durable and highly supportive layer in the bottom of the mattress.

Next, their Flex mattress features the inclusion of pocketed coil and deeper support. Here is what's inside the GhostBed Flex :

Layer 1: The quilted cover is made of a cooling fabric that is plush to the touch. The cover is woven into 1'' of cooling fiber that provides airflow .

Layer 2: 1'' of gel memory foam completes the top cover and provides sleepers with a contouring feel.

Layer 3: Next is 1'' of gel memory foam that brings relief to your pressure points while also providing support for proper spinal alignment .

Layer 4: A layer of exclusive Ghost Bounce memory foam provides sleepers with a balanced responsive feel while also being contouring to your body.

Layer 5: The support layer is individually wrapped coils that react independently to the body to support the spine.

Layer 6: Then there is a layer of high density foam that keeps the coils in place and provides durability on the base layer.

Their next mattress features a patented gel polymer that wisks away heat in a revolutionary way. Here is what's inside the Ghostbed 3D Matrix :

Layer 1: The Ghost Ice cover is supremely cooling. It wisks away heat from the body and works with the layers below to cool the body.

Layer 2: The 3D Matrix Polymer layer offers a patented approach on a common problem of sleeping too warm at night. Its gel polymer conducts heat away from the body while also removing heat that would be trapped within the mattress.

Layer 3: 2'' of gel memory foam contour around the body to relieve pressure while also relieving heat retention as well.

Layer 4: The next comfort layer is a Ghost Bounce Layer , which is super responsive like latex , which means you won't feel like you are sinking into your mattress. It also, further adapts to the body to relieve tension in your back and spine.

Layer 5: The Ghost 3D Matrix Soft Transition Foam layer provides a softer contour and feeling to the mattress , ideal for side sleeping and pressure pain relief. This layer gives the mattress a softer feel than their firmer offerings.

Layer 6: The support layer is an individually wrapped coil matrix , which has reinforced coils around the edge of the mattress so you won't slip too far down when you sit on the side of the bed. This layer is reinforced also by high density support foam beneath that provides structure and durability to the mattress and keeps the coils in place.

Up next, let's review the adjustable comfort of the Ghostbed SmartBed - 3D Matrix :

Layer 1: The Ghost Ice cover is keeps heat from the body for a cooling sleep surface.

Layer 2: The 3D Matrix Polymer further helps with cooling by conducting heat away from the body.

Layer 3: 2'' of gel memory foam relieves pressure and contours to your body. Underneath this is an additional 2'' of transitional foam that helps support the layers above and below.

Layer 4: Next is a layer of Smart Sensors which adjust to your body in real-time.

Layer 5: Adjustable air chambers help you personalize your side of the mattress to match your ideal comfort and support.

Layer 6: 2'' of high density support foam provides extra durability to this smart mattress.

Those looking for a GhostBed hybrid mattress featuring natural materials might be happy with the balance of the GhostBed Natural mattress -- lets check out what's inside:

Layer 1: The cover is made of organic cotton for a soft and clean surface.

Layer 2: A layer of natural wool helps to disperse body heat while also acting as a natural flame retardent.

Layer 3: 2'' of natural Talalay latex provides gently cradles your body while also providing a bouncy, responsive support that won't make you feel like you're sinking into the mattress.

Layer 4: The main support is 8'' of individually wrapped coils with a reinforced perimeter through their proprietary Spirited Edge™ support . The coils provide a springy support while also promoting airflow .

Layer 5: 1'' of Dunlop latex provides a durable base and support for the layers above.

Next, we'll take a look at GhostBed's high-end collaboration mattress, available in both an all foam and hybrid option , the Venus Williams Legend mattress :

Layer 1: The Venus Performance Cover is made of REPREVE® fabric, a naturally cooling synthetic fabric made 25% recycled water bottles .

Layer 2: 2'' of gel memory foam that's infused with far infrared materials that help with muscle recovery and blood flow .

Layer 3: For this layer, the all foam mattress features 2'' of Ghost Bounce memory foam that provides a responsive yet contouring feel. The hybrid mattress features a 1.5'' transitional foam layer which helps to distribute weight and support the layers above.

Layer 4: For the foam version, the main support is 8'' premium foam that helps keep things durable and in place. The hybrid version features individually encased pocket coils with a Spirited Edge™ reinforced perimeter .

Layer 5: The hybrid mattress includes one last layer of high density base foam to provide additional support and durability.

Lastly, the newest addition to GhostBed's line-up is the patent-pending GhostBed Massage Mattress :

Layer 1: The cover layer features a Ghost Ice cooling cover , which features cooling fiber to whisk away heat from the surface.

Layer 2: 2.5" of gel infused memory foam slowly cradles and contours to the sleepers above. The gel that permeates the foam also helps regulate temperature in the top layers.

Layer 3: The Ghost Massage Therapy layer is made of 5-zone air cells that are individualized on each side of the mattress. Sleepers can get light massage in different regions than their partners.

Layer 4: 2" of GhostFlex transition foam provides soft pressure relief and a softer feel than many other transition foam layers but with a subtle, responsive feel .

Layer 5: The last layer is 7.5" of high density base foam that provides a supportive structure to the mattress and helps support the back.

Overall Comfort

Most find GhostBed's offerings to be comfortable with those who love them the best being back and stomach sleepers . For side sleepers, the best options are the Luxe and the newer 3D Matrix option. The newest GhostBed massage option is revolutionary, but similar mattresses with electronic componentry have had reports of issues with longevity.

GhostBed describes their offerings as being medium-firm with some finding the Original to be on the firmer side. This means that it is best for back and stomach sleepers. Most side sleepers find more comfort with the Luxe mattress and the 3D Matrix offering, which are closer to medium in feel.

Back Pain Relief

GhostBed's firmnesses are definitely in the range of back pain alleviating mattresses. There are some sleepers that describe alleviated back pain symptoms .

GhostBed's offerings were made with cooling in mind! Most sleepers should sleep cool on all of GhostBed's mattresses. For very warm sleepers, the 3D Matrix offering provides patented cooling tech that is perfect for those warm nights.

Who Are Ghostbed's Mattresses Right For?

The Original and the Flex are ideal for those that want plenty of support out of their mattress and are of average in body size. The Luxe and the Matrix are pricier options, but are softer and comparable to other high-end mattresses -- definitely worth a second look! Lastly, the Massage is a great option for those with painful muscle tension.

Great mattress at a great price - matthew s..

I received ghost mattress promptly as well as my foundation. I was thrilled I did'nt have to go to a mattress store and everything was delivered at my convenience. I sleep great and I love the ghost pillows as well.

Not what I dreamt - Mark N.

Though the Ghost bed is way better than what we had, it is not as comfortable as we expected. The first week was great. But after that, the back and hip pain was back,though not as bad. The Ghost bed is much too firm for me.

Love it! - Taylor H.

I’ve had my Ghost Bed for a little over a month and it’s been a great experience! I had forgotten to apply my promo code and checkout, and the customer service team was an incredible help at getting it applied and getting me refunded for the additional amount. The bed is incredibly comfortable and feels like laying down on a cloud at the end of a long day. I got two pillows as well and they’re great at keeping me cool throughout the night.

Comfortable bed - jose s.

Comfortable bed

Must have this bed! - korey c.

After 7 years of sleeping on a hand me down queen mattress, me and my wife finally said it was time for a new bed. We looked all over, shopped all the stores and online. We then came across this bed called a ghost bed! Let me tell you, this bed has changed our sleep and our mornings. We now don't wake up all sore and stiff but now instead we feel so well rested and ready for our day. Thank you ghost bed, I highly recommend this bed to anyone searching for that great night sleep and a wonderful morning. Thank you again!

Super comfortable - Cristine G.

I chose this bed because it was highly rated yet firmer than many other similar brands. It arrived and opened up to full size and shape very quickly, with almost no foam odor. We’ve been sleeping comfortably ever since!

Awesome - Tony J.

Love the bed and good customer service

Best ever - KENDALL S.

I bought this bed and ordered the wrong size by drunkin stupidness the customer service was amazing and had the right size back within the week, amazing products, amazing company, and great people!

The new love of my life: king size mattress review - Michelle R.

My husband and I recently purchased a king size ghostbed mattress. For both of us it was the first new mattress we have ever owned. It is the most comfortable mattress we have ever slept on. When we get home from work we (including my toddler) go straight to the bed to watch tv in the room while sitting on it. Our family can't get enough of this super comfy bed. We are loving it and it is the new love of my life! THANK YOU GHOSTBED!!!!

Amazing night's sleep - robert j.

The hands down best bed I have ever slept on.

Ghost has the most - Amanda R.

Very comfortable I look forward to laying on it each night to sleep. It is comfortable and already so much better than the 400 dollar mattress I purchased.

It’s a yes for me! - Noah M.

I wasn’t really worried when I started reading the reviews and the return policy. Worth it!

Love this best after many - Britni A.

Love this best after many years of having a used mattress the ghost bed was life changing. I actually wake up feel well rested instead of tossing and turning all night.

Works Great - Lisa C.

I have severe arthritis. My old bed was soft but not supportive. This is firmer -which worried me at first- but is just what I needed.

Great bed - Breanna T.

We love this bed! Im now able to sleep on my back with no pain and my husband has stopped waking up sore. I would definitely recommend this bed!

Fabulous!!!! - troy h.


Amazing price, Amazing bed - Clyde A.

I couldn't be happier. I have neuropathy in my feet from chemotherapy and have to have my feet elevated anytime I'm not standing. I've been using a pillow under my feet for elevation and it hasn't always been comfortable. My kids said they'd buy me an adjustable bed for Christmas and I researched and researched. I didn't want them spending a lot of money. This bed was very reasonable so I decided to purchase it. Wow! I've only slept on it for 3 nights so far and I've slept 11 hours each night. The zero gravity position is perfect for my neuropathy. I love to sleep on my side and back and this bed is perfect for that. I can honestly say that I'm in love with my bed! However, I'm not a T-shirt kinda gal but love to wear them with leggings but they have to be extremely oversized. If you have a 3x to send me, I'll wear it and advertise for you.

Love this mattress! - Brooks H.

We are very pleased with this purchase! It’s a very comfortable mattress.

great bed - Judith F.

I brought this bed for my son for Christmas he says it is like sleeping on a cloud, he loves his new bed. He is thirty years old and says it is the best bed he has ever had. Might get myself one also when my present bed needs changing.

Queen size ghost bed - Nettie L.

Since I purchased the ghost bed I have been getting a better nights sleep and do not wake up during the night and am also sleeping longer. I am also awaking more refreshed and not in pain. This has been a very good purchase and I will recommend this bed to everyone.

Ghost bed - Lonnie T.

The bed is awesome!!

Ghost bed - Michael F.

So far, I would rate the ghost bed queen size a 4 Star, because I have slept on it only one night but I have no complaints. I will follow up with a more detailed review in a month or so. The ghost pillows on the other hand, are amazing. I have used the pillow for about a month now and will never use another pillow any time soon, that is for sure. You really have to try it to see what I am talking about because I cannot explain in words how amazing the pillow is.

No more back pain - Kate C.

I have been waking up with a sore back for the past year. After only a couple nights of sleep on my ghostbed my back is no longer sore.

Best Bed by far - Dean T.

This is the best bed I have ever owned and probably ever slept in. I usually don’t sleep well at night but this bed has made a world of difference. If you are thinking about getting one get it and it will change your sleep.

expnt - richard p.

Great bed - corey p..

Great bed to bad I still don't have my pillows :/ they need to switch shipping carriers!

Awesome - justin w.

Best nights sleep I have had in years!

Incredible value! - Michael K.

I can’t say enough good things about this mattress. It was so easy to buy and set up. The only complaint I have is that now I can’t wait to go to bed every night! It’s so comfortable.

Best purchase we made in 2017! - Jennifer C.

We bought the king-size Ghostbed based solely on the Consumer Reports recommendation, and boy, did it pay off! Some of my aches and pains are gone (*gone!*), and it's just such a comfortable night's sleep for both of us. My husband and I were on vacation last week at a pretty nice resort, but we realized — the bed, even in a nice hotel, wasn't half as comfortable as our Ghostbed at home. So glad we made the leap of faith!

Good - Angelica g.

My husband has no more back ache

I love the bed very - David M.

I love the bed very Comfortable

Good night! Really! - Louise P.

All the little aches and pains I used to wake up with - and just considered part of the aging process - have disappeared. I have never slept so well. It’s always been the accepted belief that the elderly slept fewer hours at night. Not if they have a GhostBed! Best investment ever!

This bed is ridiculously comfortable. All my previous back-shoulder pain has been relieved. - Colton P.

I was told I’d get two free pillows with my purchase of a bed shortly after January 1. When my bed arrived, there were no pillows. What the fuck?

good stuff - Michael C.

Mattress is great, pillows are a bit too stiff for me to sleep on but great for propping me up when watching TV in bed.

Ghostbed review - Kelli B.

The bed is amazing, it set up quick. And so far has done really well with it being cold in our house! The pillows are also super comfortable!

Have Enjoyed Bed - Hunter J.

I have really enjoyed my new Ghost Bed. The whole process or ordering was super easy and incredibly fast. The softness of the bed is a perfect fit for me. The only issue I'm having with the bed is that it is sleeping a little hot and I am waking up sweating very often.

Ghostbed Queen Matress - Elisabeth W.

We’ve only had the mattress for over a month therefore only 4 stars because I dont know how it will hold up after a year. I’m assuming we wont have any problem with sagging and etc. The box arrived promptly and it was easy to bring up to my second floor appartment. We opened the box and got the mattress out of the shwrink wrap and placed it on our queen platform bed. Very easy. And within an hour, at the most it had regained its shape. I love it and so far my sleeping experience is very good.

So giving it a try. - Pat G.

Well I am giving it the 31 day trial. My lower back has been sore after waking up. I read some reviews and this is a common complaint. So if not better then I will be asking for refund/return.

I love my Ghost Bed. - Carl R.

I've had my king size Ghost Bed for about a month now and love it. I've been sleeping through the night consistently since receiving it. Great bed, much better than my old sleep number.

Wonderlust sleep - Azucena C.

It’s amazing! You’ll feel like your floating. It’s firm but soft at the same time. I’ve had back problems for many years. This bed has minimized those pains and aches. I feel refreshed in the morning. I don’t want to leave my new bed. Yes, it’s that good

Awesome - Noah S.

Very comfy and easy to setup!

Queen Matress and Pillows - Tracy B.

I love this bed! I'm sleeping better than ever, and the pillows are incredible! Highly recommend tge Ghostbed (and pillows)! Get the mattress protector if you have dogs...they love the bed as well

1 month in - Shane R.

We've had this mattress for about a month. We didn't notice much of an odor when we opened it, so we ended up using it that same night. Coming from a spring pillow top mattress, the first things I notices were 1) There is no bounce when you sit, move, roll over, or get out. 2) I didn't sink in to the foam as far I expected. The lack of bounce is great. I don't feel my wife move or get in or out of bed. I was expecting to sink in to the foam more than I did. Only certain areas sink in depending on how I am positioned, but in all positions it feels as if all points are getting equal support. I suffer from chronic back pain. It hasn't completely gone away in a month, but It seems to be improving. Our mattress came with 2 of the foam pillows. We have used those when sitting up in bed, but they are too soft for me to use for sleeping. My wife feels the same.

Squishy and Comfy - Jessica B.

Bed arrived faster than expected. Ordered the queen size. Wish it was a little thicker, more like 12-14 inches, but comfortable and body sinks into memory foam nicely, and cradles your body. Giving 4 stars, because the edges of the bed are not sturdy, and some times I feel like I'm going to roll right off the edge. Also, recommend a full 24 hours to allow the bed to expand, so plan on sleeping else where, or leave it on the floor.

Perfection! - Rachel B.

For someone who needs a firm bed but has the tiniest of gives in the perfect places...this is for you!!!

Great bed at a great price! - Ashley G.

The bed is amazingly comfortable and affordable. However the box spring is poorly made. I would recommend getting a bed frame that doesn’t require a box spring. The mattress is perfect and so are the pillows!

Second one! - Curtis H.

I really enjoy this bed! It has helped relieve my wife's back and knee pain, and I finally get a comfortable night's rest. It's "spooky" how comfortable this mattress is and it's "eerily" wonderful how the pillows compliment the mattress.

Perfect mix of soft and firm - Kristin A.

This bed is incredibly comfortable--firm yet soft. Happy to go to bed each night!

Ghost bed - Vanessa S.

My husband and I are enjoying our ghost bed mattress and the pillows that came with it. So far we are both sleeping more comfortable and sound. We are waking up less and when you get up the mattress does not alert the other person which could disturb their sleep. Happy with our purchase!

Does not have much "give" on the top - Theresa P.

I have had back issues for years and I have yet to find a mattress that is perfect. This mattress does give me the support I need but is lacking on the comfort side.

So comfy - Erin E.

My boyfriend and I absolutely love this bed. We both raved about it for a week. It’s super comfortable and I’ve been sleeping great.

Greatest Bed I've Ever Owned - Travis V.

My wife and I were bed shopping, and were using the traditional mattress store as a bit of research. We thought we'd found the right bed. A cooling tech infused firm memory foam bed in Cal King for about $2300. I wasn't too enthused about the price, but it was the best bed I had found until that point. I left the store thinking it would be a soon to be purchased item, and ended up travelling for a conference and staying in an AirBnB about a week later. As it turned out, the AirBnB had a queen sized GhostBed in it with the GhostPillow too, and I slept wonderfully. Probably the most comfortably I had ever slept. This was it. I had to have my own. I looked it up and say the great 101 day trial period, the additional bonuses of ordering around the holiday season (free GhostPillows and a reduced pricepoint), added a protector, and away we went. Since the mattress arrived, both my wife and I have been sleeping amazingly. In truth, it has almost affected me negatively in that I now tend to get to work a bit later than I used to. It really is hard to leave the bed... Anyway, I highly recommend the bed to anyone who is seeking a quality mattress at a great price. 10/10, would buy again.

Great bed! - TIMOTHY N.

Fast delivery, super comfy. Love it.

Loving it - Chrissy N.

Love my bed and pillows. Used to have half dozen pillows to help get comfy and now they are all in the guest room.

King bed - Tim S.

Very firm. Borderline too firm. Process was simple.

i like it - william r.

So good...we bought 3 beds - jacque w..

Love our ghost bed...bought 2 more for our guest rooms

Ghost bed Cali king - Audrey M.

I was having back problems and barely able to move in the mornings with my old mattress. Since switching to ghost bed, I sleep better and having a comfy type of firm support. We absolutely love it!

Ghost Bed is truly "Best in Class" for back support -- and my back gives it a 5 out of 5 for comfort too. - Marie R.

While all of the online mattress evaluations we read were helpful to us in making our decision to buy the Ghost Bed mattress, my best mattress critic is my back. My back can tell in an instant if the mattress I'm sleeping on will give it the support it needs for a restful night of sleep. Ghost Bed is truly "Best in Class" for back support -- and my back gives it a 5 out of 5 for comfort too. Since we swapped out our old mattress with the Ghost Bed, I'm no longer tossing and turning in an all-night struggle to locate the "sweet spot" I need to get a good night's sleep - the entire Ghost Bed mattress is one gigantic "sweet spot" and offers a consistently comfortable (and firm) sleeping experience -- whether I'm sleeping on my back or on my side. Also, since sleeping on the Ghost Bed mattress for a couple of weeks, I'm no longer experiencing soreness in my lower back. In fact, I don't believe I've been conscious of my lower back lately -- which is how I like it! The Ghost Bed was shipped to us in a compact, easy-to-manage box, which we carried up the stairs and into the bedroom with no difficulty. My husband has also commented on how much he enjoys sleeping on the Ghost Bed mattress too since we bought it, and we were also impressed with the two pillows that were part of our purchase as well; they too are firm, comfortable and supportive. Thanks for a great product.

More than expected - Jason O.

Very happy with our ghost bed. Keeps me cool and comfy. I sleep on my sides alot and it doesn't bother like my off pillow top did.

Great product - DreCarla P.

Love the bed, will have to do another review after a few weeks. And thanks for the shirt!

Tucker - Tucker M.

So far I love it. This is the best mattress for people who sleep on their back.

Perfect - Cody T.

Reviews said it was too firm, but I haven’t found that to be true. I’m very happy withy purchase, and with the ghost pillow I don’t wake up with a sore neck anymore.

Ghost bed - Camilla A.

It is so comfortable and I get a great night sleep!

Great Purchase - Anna C.

I did my review of all available king size mattresses and decided on Ghostbed. Ordered mattress and a king bed frame from another source. The mattress came in a few days from ghostbed bit had to wait couple of weeks for bed frame to arrive before I could use it. It has been a week of blissful sleep. It is certainly s little firmer than I had expected for a memory foam mattress but that could be because of cooler weather in San Francisco. A solid buy and glad with my choice.

Wonderful! - Brandon K.

Shipping was quick, setup was easy! It took a week or so to really get "comfortable" sleeping on this new mattress, but I love it!

Wayne - Wayne S.

Great mattress, sound, comfortable sleep!!!!!

Much better than our previous memory foam mattress - Chris A.

Not as hot and so far no backaches in the morning (after one month of use.)

Nice feel - early to judge durability - James R.

It was delivered fine and rolled out easily - very heavy! Not a strong smell, as I've heard can be an issue with some gel mattresses. We've had it for two months and so far it has been great. I wish I could say I feel like a different person - not that, but have slept comfortably and not had any issues with heat, which was another concern of this sort of mattress. I also very much like the pillow and the mattress pad we got as well.

Awsome - James L.

Great bed really comfortable

Sleeping like a baby. - Elizabeth V.

I’ve always preferred hard mattresses. This has more give then I’ve had before but I’m thinking that’s why I’m sleeping so well.

Great so far! - Jack C.

We've only been sleeping on it for about a week but so far I love it. Super firm but definitely not as firm as some other reviews claimed. Then again, I don't think there is a mattress in existence that I would call too firm. This seems about the same firmness as the Tempurpedic it replaced. Love the pillows a lot too! They are a really nice balance of firm memory foam yet still somewhat squishy. The order process was super simple, and it arrived in just a couple days!

Buying ghost mattress - Ken B.

Buying the ghost mattress was a simple process and received it very quickly. Been sleeping soundly since we purchased it!!

Sleep so good it's scary - Anthony C.

After hearing all about ghost bed on the Drinkin bros podcast I decided to order one for myself after splitting with my gf. Needless to say I'm sleeping better than ever. All the support and comfort you could ask for, especially during sleepovers.

Best sleep ever - Jordan G.

Traded out my serta pillow top queen for the ghost bed and I have never slept better. For the first time in almost 10 years my back doesn't hurt in the morning. On top of myself, my wife has been getting to sleep faster and sleeping better as well. Simply could not be happier with the bed and the 2 free pillows thrown in during the holiday sale just made sleep that much better.

LOVE The KING GhostBed - anthony w.

We purchased this King Ghost Bed for Christmas and have been sleeping in Heaven since. This King is so comftable, and keeps you cool with the pillows,My face got hot in other pillows these pillows keep form n cool all night Great Purchase we have 2 King Beds from this company and LOVE Them, Great price and Quick shipping. HIGHLY Recomended

Love it! - Cynthia A.

Fast shipping, so easy to set up and I've loved it from the first night. My husband is still adjusting a bit, but is very happy too!

Lovely bed - Darius M.

Once we watched our king size Ghost Bed take shape we began to sleep on it and it was a great relief for me because we’d been sleeping on an old king died bed that was way too sift and unsupportive. I loved the flat, simple surface and the balance between firmness and softness. So for me it’s been delightful. But my wife found it way too firm and started sleeping in a guest room. So we contacted Ghostbed and the nice customer rep offered to give us a foam topper for the bed and that has solved our problem. So I can’t say enough for both the company and for the product they sell. It’s been a very positive experience. We also love the Ghost pillows.

Back pain gone - James H.

My wife reports that her back pain is completely gone, mine is not but I attribute that more to my weight than the bed. Overall very happy.

Wonderful but doesn't work on my old foundation - Natalie T.

I find my GHOSTBED extremely comfortable. It is supportive but not uncomfortably firm to me. That said my sister would not like it as her definition of firm is more like "hard as a rock." However, any buyer should be aware that it does require the appropriate foundation. I am saving my $$$ to buy their platform. My old mattress and box springs were labeled full/queen and must really have been full size as the GHOSTBED mattress is too large and extends over the box spring on each side. I added planks underneath to support it but it still feels as if we are going to fall off if we don't gravitate to the center of the bed.

King Mattress - Richard K.

Nice comfortable mattress but a little too soft.

Ghost bed - Amber C.

I got the California king Ghost Bed and I absolutely love my new bed. It's really comfortable and easy to sleep on, most nights. The only thing that I don't like is how long it takes for the bed to get broke in for the best comfort. With that said, some mornings I wake up a little stiff with an achy back.

Was nice but not what - Princess C.

Was nice but not what I was looking for. The price for it was too high.

I am a side sleeper - Julie M.

I am a side sleeper with a cervical issue. Our mattress was 15 years old so I thoroughly researched mattresses and especially since Consumer Reports rated it very high, we decided to invest much more money than we ever had on a mattress to buy the Ghost Bed. We bought the complete set, foundation, queen size mattress, 2 pillows, and the mattress protector. Although a pain to put together, I did get the foundation built. The mattress was unboxed right on the bed which was a good thing because it is completely unwieldy. I CANNOT imagine why the designers did not put hand grips on either side or end. I believe it had to be a marketing thing to discourage returns because really, that thing is going to be really difficult to move. Now, I LOVE the sleep that I get on the mattress even though it's a tad firmer than expected, and especially that I don't feel any movement from my spouse who comes to bed much later than I do. However, despite Consumer Reports giving the mattress high scores for durability, we've already found the mattress pitting on both sleeping sides and we haven't even had it 30 days. That's extremely concerning and will drive whether we return it before the 60 day guarantee. This mattress is probably an excellent choice for the younger more fit crowd but not for the older (but wiser lol) less fit set.

Couldn’t be happier - Ryan

We’ve owned our Ghost Bed for a little over a month now and have noticed an immediate improvement in our sleep. We are arill impressed with both the quality and the value of the bed and would gladly recommend to friends.

Ordering was a simple process, - Susan K.

Ordering was a simple process, and we love this bed!

Sleeping the whole night through! - Nicole F.

After years of tossing and turning on my old spring matress, I am actually sleeping soundly through the night on our king Ghost Bed! My husband is 6'4" and I am 5'11", and we recently learned that most matresses are not supportive enough for our taller stature. The Ghost Bed is so well made that I can't even feel my husband get in and out of bed!!! He used to wake me up every time he rolled over during the night. Thank you Ghost Bed for making me one well-rested happy Momma!

Great experience - William S.

I ended up picking up a Queen mattress about a month ago. Ordering was easy and shipping was very quick (mattress arrived at my door 4 days early). The mattress itself is of high quality and I've certainly felt better rested when I wake up in the mornings. I don't get hot on the mattress either which is a great feature from my old spring mattress. Would recommend.

So nice! - Max M.

Its a very good quality - iuliia d..

Its a very good quality mattress. Feel comfortable and solid. No downsides so far.

FIRM! FIRM! FIRM! - Kenneth L.

The bed is very firm when you first lay on it. I'm going to give it some time to soften up but I feel like that is not going to happen. Don't get me wrong its not an uncomfortable firm, but is to firm for my liking. If it doesn't soften up then Ill get a mattress topper to give that little bit that I love in a bed. If that doesn't help then Ill have no choice but to send it back.

Fantastic - Michelle g.

Have bought 3 ghostbeds and now everyone sleeps better!

Really comfy - Michael N.

I am 5'11", 170 lbs, with lower back iasues. The bed has been really comfy over the last week and seems to have helped my back. The sides do cave a little more than an innerspring, and it's winter now so I can't comment on heat retention, but I really like it so far.

king mattress bundle - daniel m.

The mattresses has exceeded my expectations, for comfort, ease of set up, delivery, the hurricane package deal was exceptional bargain. I have been searching for a mattress for a long time, having had lower back, cervical fusion surgery in the past, new mattress purchase is a terrifying event. Will it give me the support i need, will it be firm enough, etc. Well hands down it delivered all the things i needed. This mattress was purchased 2 weeks after a second lower back surgery for herniated disc, so there is no more sensitive back then mine. Tipping point for me about buying a mattress on line for me was a recommend rating on consumer reports as well. thanks for the great bed, pillows and mattress cover. Daniel

Nice bed - Duy N.

Ghost bed - debbie m..

I really love my ghost bed and mattress I sleep better than I have in years . I love massager in my bed. It is worth every penny and would highly recommend to others

So glad I finally ordered! - Juie D.

Easy order and easy setup. Bed is extremely comfortable, has no weird smell, and does not get all kinds of hot. It's great.

Great sleep - Tommie W.

Perfect firm and softness. Pillows are great as well.



Feels soft but has good support - Charles E.

When I first got the mattress I was afraid it would not provide enough support. It felt very soft to the touch or to sit on. However, when I lay down it felt much better. I have now slept on it for two weeks and definitely have less back pain than before

Comfort - Jessica C.

We purchased our bed in December and couldn't be more pleased with the ordering process, packaging and shipment. LOVE our decision to choose a Ghostbed!

Best Purchase of 2017 - Emily W.

I couldn't be happier with this mattress. I like a firmer mattress, and this is perfect. I can hardly feel my partner move around in the night, which has definitely helped our sleep. The pillows are also very comfortable, and I no longer have to stack pillows. One is enough! Quick delivery, quick set-up. I definitely recommend this mattress!

In love with my bed - Megan T.

The mattress is everything I imagined and more!

So comfortable! - Danielle A.

My biggest concern regarding memory foam mattresses is lack of support. We got to try the ghost mattress at a friend's house while staying in their guest room and it was beyond comfortable. My husband who suffers from chronic back and body pain from his job says he feels great when he lays down and when he wakes up. We haven't stopped talking about this bed since we got it and have talked to several people about getting it when they mention they need a new bed.

New bed - Travis S.

This bed is amazing. We replaced a traditional Spring bed and my only complaint is not as soft as I like but is great.

Loving it. - Nephi D.

Sleeping as good as I've ever slept in my life.

So good it's scary - Andy M.

I wish I wouldn't have waited so long to buy this mattress. It is amazing. The only problem I have is trying to sleep when I'm away from home.

1 week but.. - Ibrahim A.

...i got this matress for my wife and only got to sleep in it for a week before i was off. Very good rest. I didnt get the free pillow, but I look forward to much better sleep in the future.

Have only had the mattress a few weeks... - Yasamin A.

So far so good. I really love my ghost pillow however. I would like to give the mattress a few more weeks to really tell the difference for both of us.

Comfy takes time. - Justin R.

We love our new ghost bed! What we didnt know is that it takes a while to soften up. But ghost bed people are awesome and of corse when I asked them about it they offered to send out a topper to help through the teansition period! Thank You Ghost Bed!

Great but... - Johnny W.

Shipping was amazing, the mattress foundation and pillows arrived a day after the order was processed and the mattress protector came shortly afterwards. The mattress itself is very comfortable. However the cooling properties advertised are nonexistent, I still wake up covered in sweat.

It arrived shortly after we - Allicyn T.

It arrived shortly after we had purchased it, great deal, and the set up was simple. The bed is very comfortable, I have had issues with my back and this mattress seems to help. We also got the pillows and they are comfortable however I find that they are too high and hurt my neck so I alternate between pillow and no pillow, the bed is that comfortable that I can sleep without a pillow.

Good bed but not perfect - Cari M.

The shipping and delivery process was quick and easy. No problems with set up, and no strong odor. Unfortunately this bed was too firm for me. I am a side sleeper under 130 pounds and dont really sink in to get that gentle support I was hoping for. My heavier back sleeping partner enjoys the firmness. The two pillows have a pretty big design flaw IMO, the huge embroidered logo can be felt through the pillow case, its hard and scratchy, so only one side of the pillow is usable.

Sleeping like a baby - Shannon L.

We've had our new ghost bed a couple weeks now. The buying process was super easy and the bed arrived just days later. So far we are very happy with it and expect to have several years of good night's sleep. Thank you for making a quality product at an affordable price!

Superb nights sleep - Brooke S.

Both my husband and myself are sleeping so much better than we did with our previous mattress. We wake up feeling refreshed due to the fact that we’re getting a solids night sleep on our Ghost Bed. Love it and wholeheartedly give this mattress 5 stars.

Love it! - Richard P.

Loving my new GhostBed! A+

Amazing - Joseph R.

This bed was better than I hoped for!!

Never slept better! - Renee D.

Perfect firmness, I sleep like a dream on it! Better than I even expected!

Almost perfect - MJ H.

Put some handles on the ends, it's a bitch to move!

Pretty good - Irma G.

All good except that one of the long boards that make the box spring was cracked.

New Bed - Todd M.

I am loving this new bed..went from a queen to a king and I don’t even feel my spouse moving around or getting out of bed. It’s comfortable!

Dreamy - Nicholas K.

Where has this been all my life?! I was nervous because the mattress is described as firm, but I am absolutely in love with my bed now. My husband no longer complains of back pain. I wake up refreshed in the morning. Love it and would definitely recommend this mattress!

Best sleep of my life - Julie B.

Absolutely love my Ghost Bed, perfect mix of comfortable and firm. It’s an absolute dream

Better sleep - James M.

We love new mattress. Haven’t been waking up tossing and turning every night.

Best bed ever - Cecil D.

Definitely have to say this bed is the real deal has the right amount of softness and firmness to it. My sleep has definitely improved 100% and back pain is gone, and it is very true the mattress does not get all hot but actually cools you down, I would recommend this to anyone,can't wait to try the rest of their products.

My husband finally sleeps! - Donna S.

We love this mattress! 4 years ago I spent $2000 on a Simons Beauty Rest. I thought I was buying a great mattress. That's when my husband's back pain started. It was way too firm. I thought we just had to get used to it. I was wrong. We suffered enough. My son told me about the ghost mattress, him and his wife got one and they loved it! One night I was on Instagram and an advertisement was on there. Zero percent financing and 2 free pillows. I jumped on that! We love it!!!

It's working - Woodbury H.

Sleeping soundly through the night

Bought the king for our - Janet M.

Bought the king for our Montana Fifth Wheel... very satisfied with the comfort and fast delivery.

Ahhh!! - Jana H.

Wow! This mattress rocks so far. We look forward to bed every night. Nice and firm but buttery soft at the same time. Not as thrilled with boxspring. You basically get a build your own boxspring kit! Wood slats and 40 or more screws that require electric drill. Not fun or worth the price. You can get a king boxspring elsewhere and put your awesome ghostbed on it!

Excellent Customer Support - Mark S.

Had a challenge with our Ghostbed and the team worked quickly to take care of our need. Thanks

I love the bed . - Sabrina S.

I love the bed . Sleep,has been wonderful

Best sleep! - Clint K.

Bought the queen size, was shipped fast, and with no problems. Highly recommend!

Loved it - Megan B.

I was skeptical at first, the bed felt so much firmer than my last $2600+ name-brand European pillow top, not to mention that it came in the mail and was only $695. I figured I’d give it a week or two before I made any decisions but initially thought I’d end up returning it. After the first week I loved it, as did my husband. It helped my husband’s and my back pain a great deal and kept us from tossing and turning all night. It’s supportive but not too firm and you don’t feel like you’re being eaten by the bed and can’t get out of it. The biggest problem that I had with the bed we’re replacing is that after the first year it ended up sagging and making impressions in the spot where we normally sleep. I haven’t had this bed long enough to tell if it will do the same. I hope not, but the warranty is reassuring and if we need to replace it it’s a lot cheaper than the previous one.

Amazing - Jonathan R.

Bought this for my son and he loves it and the pillows. Bought a twin size and it was perfect. Highly recommend!!!

I love my ghostbed so - Emily W.

I love my ghostbed so much! I will definitely buy another one soon!

Great Service - Erica C.

Shipping was fast and set up was easy.

Sleeping like the dead on my Ghostbed - Kirk M.

I really needed a new mattress and was reluctant to make the switch from a coil type to memory foam due to a back problem because I didn't know what to expect. My restless sleep cycles were getting worse so I decided to try one out. So glad I did! The bed was delivered in under 2 days. The first night sleep was extremely luxurious compared to my old coil spring mattress. I actually slept for the first time in many years. And my back pain dissipated! Thanks Ghostbed for making my life more restful and less painful.

fantastic - callie t.

after renting furnished room after furnished room, i decided it was time to purchase my own NEW bed. my brother recently became the owner of a ghostbed and after lying on it after setting up his new room, i had to get one of my own. i upgraded to a queen and got the foundation and mattress, as well as the two pillows it came with. i've never been happier. the interest free financing is a fantastic draw. my experience with ghostbed couldn't be better and i recommend it to all of my friends -- letting them lie on my mattress for extra incentive.

Excellent bed - John M.

Excellent bed

The bed was good but too soft for my back personally. - Minh H.

A lot of other people may like the bed. But I would prefer something firmer due to my back problem.

Incredible - Ryan F.

I haven’t slept this well in years. Literally, it’s lights out when I lay down. I heard a lot about your products through the Drinkin’ Bros Podcast but I didn’t actually make the purchase for about a year. I should’ve pulled the trigger a long time ago.

Back problems solved! - James R.

Was having back pains because of our old memory foam mattress. Which caused me to have sleep issues. Decided to look for a new mattress. Did a ton of research (review videos, consumer reviews). Decided on the Ghost Bed. I made the right decision! Within the first two nights my back pain was gone and I was sleeping through the night. It has the right amount of firmness, and it keeps me cool during the night. Got it for an amazing price. Plus got two Ghost Pillows free, and free shipping! Thanks for the great nights sleep Ghost Bed!

It's about time! - Michelle G.

We haven't purchased a mattress in over 15 years, so looking into all of the different types was a rather daunting experience. We were used to sleeping on a good old coiled mattress with a pillow top: a mattress that was proving to be "too soft" for my husband and just plain "too old!" for me, plus it was causing us problematic sinus issues, (15 years- no wonder!!). So...after reviewing our options and seeing the advertisement for GhostBed on Amazon, we decided to compare it a Casper mattress, (one my husband was 90% certain that he wanted). Once I read aloud all of the pros of the GhostBed to my husband, his reaction of "we have a winner" was all we needed, (well...that, and the deal we scored on for two free pillows plus $100 off the mattress price), so we ordered one, certain that the 101 night sleep testing period was a for sure thing. Turns out, we definitely made the right choice! The Ghostbed is perfect, 1) for people in the big/tall range, 2) those with allergies and certain sensitivities to dust, etc., 3) provides just the right amount of support, but also just the right amount of "soft". Since it's winter, we haven't really been able to experience the claims of good air circulation in order to keep the body cool, (more of a warmer weather asset, I believe), it currently fits the ticket. I love laying down at night and cuddling with my hubby on this mattress! We didn't experience any problems with the product having an odd/overwhelming smell after opening up the bag and it was actually enjoyable to watch it inflate before our eyes! It set perfectly on top of the box springs, (which we decided to retain), and so far all of our queen-sized sheets fit it perfectly- actually, even better than they did on our old pillowtop. We're both using the complimentary pillows and they really do support the head and neck in any laying position. Yes, we are happy with our purchase and hope to still feel that way ten years down the road!

Very simple ordering process. Our - Dan H.

Very simple ordering process. Our Ghostbed arrived quickly and set up was a a breeze. Sleeping great!

Better than Promised - Christopher D.

Like you perhaps, I did the research on all the current mattress in a box offerings, evening going to pop-up events to try some. Based on construction, past reviews and value I opted for the Ghost Bed, Queen-sized. My mattress arrived in just days and was shipped without any damage and packaged beautifully with minimal waste. Opening and unwrapping the mattress was a breeze, and I did let it "set up" for the afternoon before trying it. Let me just say its the most comfortable mattress Ive ever had and I've spend far more on "name brand" store sets with cumbersome delivery and difficult set-up. The Ghost Bed is better than promised. I'm even thinking of adding another one for the guest room. I like it that much.

Best decision - Scott B.

Best decision in life

Awesome - Michael H.

Best sleep I’ve had in my adult life.

queen ghost bed - Gerson L.

I have been sleeping on the ghost beed since december 23,2017. so far i like the mattress. i was worried that it would no be firm enough as it comes in a box. but once it is unpacked and let out for 24 hours to regain its shape, the bed is nice and firm enough. i would recommend it to a friend or family.

It's alright... - FERRELL B.

I bought this bed due to all the reviews stating the bed was supportive. I suffer from spasticity and having to much give causes more muscle contractions. This bed ended up being more supportive than I was expecting. I ended up adding another layer of memory foam padding, hopefully just until I break it in. If you're getting this mattress under the notion that you want a firm bed, you better mean it. There is some motion transfer, which is frustrating. I'm still on the fence as to whether I'll keep it.

A little too firm - Christine S.

I purchased the ghostbed mattress about 3 weeks ago and it's still very firm and they mentioned to give it 30 days to break it in. I no longer wake up with any back pain though so that is a good sign and I'm hoping this bed will soften up in the coming weeks. We've even been jumping on the mattress hoping that would help but If you like a firm mattress this will be a great mattress for you. Easy setup but the mattress in the box is very heavy and you definitely need two people to lift this thing up the steps.

Perfect firmness vs soft - Gina H.

I love the firm support yet it’s soft at the same time!! Noticeable difference in my sleeping!! I love my new Ghost bed.

Best bed ever. - Calvin E.

Really love the ghost bed super comfortable. Soft yet firm. Had back problems on old bed. New ghost bed has changed the game.

Ghost bed mattress - Rodha S.

I love this mattress.

Ghost Bed King Size - Rachel M.

Love, love, love it! It took me about a week, but now, I can't remember what it's like to have a bad night's sleep. I am amazed by the difference just from changing from an air mattress to a foam mattress. Also, the temp is regulated so nicely, I don't swear while I sleep! I will recommend this bed to anyone who asks!

Amazing! - Malgorzata D.

A+ - shelby v..

Thank You! The bed is comfortable and easy to put together. Will recommend!

Best bed I’ve had - Collin S.

The GhostBed has given my family and I a better night of sleep.

Excellence at it's finest - Bradley O.

What more can I say... the title says it all!

Good bed. A lot better than my last bed. - Garrett N.

I Sleep pretty good on it. Comfortable bed. Not as firm as I would like. Some where between soft to medium range on the the firm side of the scale. Seems to sleep cool but it’s the middle of winter in Michigan so cant say if it’s hot at night in the summer. Used Boll and Branch sheets witch are really nice. But I wish ghost bed had their own sheets that would be a perfect fit. The pillows are flat out awesome.

Love it! - jacqueline d.

Firm enough to support yet molds around me, both the mattress and pillows. Very happy with my purchase

Sleeping better than ever - Kristin H.

Absolutely loving our cal king ghost mattress. Perfect balance of firm and soft!!

Very happy! - Shanah T.

We have recently tried several expensIve mattresses that we ended up sending back for one reason or another. Our friends recommended Ghostbed so we decided to give it a try. We have been very pleasantly surprised at how much we like the ghostbed! Our backs don’t hurt anymore! We don’t have any can’t go wrong, especially for the price!

Ghost bed - Sharleen K.

Love it, Very firm yet comfy, Not hot like typical memory foam. 9 out of 10 for us!

Wonderful sleep - Robert H.

After 8 years with a spring mattress, waking up with joint pain, this bed is absolutely delightful! You fit right in, no tossing, hot spots. Worth the money plus two free pillows. Don't regret it one bit.

Don't hesitate to buy this mattress - Cory D.

I did a ton of research before I purchased. I thought it was a little insane to buy a bed that I never tested out first, but this IS by far the best mattress I've ever purchase. I talk about the GhostBed so often that I think I'm becoming a walking infomercial. As far as how I sleep... I typically go to bed earlier now than I did before. According to my sleep tracker, I fall asleep faster and have a more restful night sleep. I wake up feeling refreshed. I did buy two pillows which I love just as much. My only criticism is that I need a smaller pillow underneath the GhostPillow to make just a little higher. My advice: Buy it. You'll love it.

Loving my GhostBed mattress! - Andre J.

The best sleep I’ve had in a while! No more pain

Best sleep I've had in years - Jorge H.

I Sleep like a baby!!! No more back pain also snoring is reduced by a ton! I feel so rested every morning. Plus another great feature is the cooler bed. I haven't sweat anymore either!! Yesss!!! Love love love my bed! Ordering another bed soon!!

So comfortable! - Sarah C.

Bought this bed during the Black Friday sale. Absolutely no complaints! Literally took us 3 mins to set up. My husband and I both suffer from lower back pain regularly, and we wake up pain free every morning. You will not regret buying this bed.

Awesome bed! - Emily V.

We love this bed. Cool and supportive.

Best Sleep in Years! - Gary M.

We purchased the GhostBed at the suggestion of our son, who asked for one for Christmas. Our old foam mattress was still in good shape, and we really didn't need to replace it. However, since we started using the GhostBed a week ago, we have slept better, and no longer have stiff backs when we wake up. I highly recommend the GhostBed to anyone who wants to experience a restful sleep, especially those with old backs.

The Ghost - Jason h.

The pillows are amazing, we have not tried the bed yet

Love our mattress - Whitney A.

We've had our Ghostbed for about a month now and we are very happy with It! It is a little firmer than we expected it to be but apparently that is just what I needed. I used to wake up with back and neck pain but since getting our mattress I haven't had any pain! I would highly recommend!

sleep on a cool cloud! - Susan N.

Fabulous. Shipped in a few days; easy setup; no off gassing!

Heavenly Sleep - Sheila J.

I'm not going to lie, coming from a coil spring mattress, there is some adjustment time needed, but not much. By the 4th night, both my hubby and I were sleeping like babies! My husband has always tossed and turned a lot in his sleep,but not nearly as much now, and even when he does, I cant even feel it! This mattress is the PERFECT combination of softness,and support, it truly is like sleeping on a cloud! Definitely found our new mattress brand, just hope that it holds up like they say so we can enjoy many years of comfort on it! I do have to say, we got the free pillows included, and the verdict is still out there, although I believe that is just a personal preference, as we both have used Down filled pillows most of our lives. Still haven't given up on the Ghost Pillows, but we do keep our old worn out pillows close by just in case! However, as this Review is for the Mattress, I definitely give it 5 stars! If you're looking for your next mattress, I highly recommend that you look no further!

Nice and Firm - Mariellen K.

My tall husband can finally sleep on his back; he never told me that the others were uncomfortable for his back sleeping. We've only used it for one week, but the edges are firm to sit on, the bed is wonderful for back sleeping as well as side sleeping. We are pleased. We reserve judgement on the free pillows as they are still "off-gassing" in the living room.

Goldilocks - Robert G.

Solid bed. Goldilocks would love it.

Queen Ghost Bed - Bonnie S.

Love this bed!! Best sleep ever!

Love our mattress! - Kathy F.

We are sleeping so much better on our new Ghostbed!

Decent - Heather Z.

The bed frame is noisier (makes creaking sounds when I move around) and when my husband or I roll over to our sides or back, the other person feels every movement. Sometimes I feel like I almost have to hold on when my husband rotates because I feel I might be jostled out of bed. My back DOES feel good though sleeping on this mattress.

still undecided - Tyler B.

buying process was easy when i paid full in cash. still undecided if im comfortable on the bed or not yet. im a stomach sleeper most of the time and i tend to wake up frequently still with lower back aches still. not sure if the bed takes some breaking in to get used to or not but im still giving it time to convince me its as good as its claimed to be.

I look forward to going to bed - Mike P.

I love my ghost bed! I am sleeping 8+ hours for the first time in years.

Best gift - Annabel R.

I bought this mattress as a gift for my mom, she has had the same mattress for over 20 yrs. It was time. After hearing all the wonderful reviews from numerous friends, and reading all the reviews online, I decided it was time to pull the trigger. The second we set up the mattress, I had to ask what she was doing with her face. She was holding back tears. She has a wonderful night of sleep that night. I will be buying one of these for myself, as soon as I can. This bed is so comfortable, and you do not wake up covered in sweat, like with most memory foam mattresses. She loves this mattress, and I think it is wonderful as well. The Lavender pillows are a nice perk as well!

ghost bed - Diane R.

This bed was very easy to order, good price, and a discount and 2 free pillows. The bed is very comfortable and just the right firmness. No setting up to do-just open the box and unroll it and it is ready to go.

Love our GhostBed! Worth every - LaToya B.

Love our GhostBed! Worth every dollar. Smells great, fast delivery, & super comfortable.

LOVE this bed! - Courtney B.

We’ve been sleeping on this bed for 3 weeks now and it is seriously the best mattress we’ve ever had! My husband is usually sweating within a couple of hours but he hasn’t gotten hot at all since we’ve gotten this mattress! It’s so comfortable that we randomly find 1 or all of our kids just laying in our bed during the day! I have recommended this bed to just about everyone I know! The only issue is that our sheet kept slipping off the mattress so I would recommend the mattress cover to keep it in place.

Honest Review - Robert C.

Initial Thoughts: The bed was pretty easy to install/unfold my personal experience is that there was no off gassing or weird smells. Please note that I have owned the bed under 90 days. One thing to take into account while I am generally cold natured however, even I have to tell you that the bed runs a bit on the warm side so I would advise that if you are hot natured to consider your self warned I got it this winter so I don't know how it will be come summer. Final Thoughts: TBD mainly because I haven't had it long enough to be really thorough.

Ghostbed LUXE - Haleigh R.

When we purchased the Ghostbed, I was worried that I would be too hot because I had been warned that memory foam wasn't always comfortable for hot sleepers. However, we purchased the Ghostbed LUXE and my husband and I LOVE it. The temperature is perfect.

Perfect - Sharmalee K.

My husband has bad shoulders and back. This bed is a God send for him.

Love this bed! - Kristin L.

So if you are going from a traditional mattress to the ghost bed it does take a little time for your body to adjust but I promise after about 3 weeks it’s a dream!

Cool and comfortable combined with great service - Eric P.

We have had our Luxemattress for one month now and are thrilled with how it sleeps. It is so much cooler and more comfortable than our past memory foam mattresses. The sides are firm, there really is a nice bounce and you sink in just enough for side sleepers....and again the coolness is iincredible. You will not wake up sweating and tossing and turning in the middle of the night. Customer service was also great. We had our order delayed for two months to align with our bed frame delivery and when that arrived four weeks early (without notice) it only took one call and Ghostbed expedited our order.

Coolest Sleep! - William R.

I sleep hot! In fact before ghostbed I slept with a fan on my nightstand, an overhead fan, and still was soaked in sweat when I woke up. That has all changed thanks to ghostbed! I actually get cold!

Our new Ghost bed!! - Teresa H.

So we Heard from a friend their Ghost bed was super comfy!! So hey.. we need a mattress for sure! Our old original Havertys memory foam has his & her ruts we've had it so long. I decided to go with the ghost Bed Luxe. California King. I was so excited to finally buy a new Mattress. It arrived super quick to Florida from California. The free pillows came in two days after ordering the bed. Well I must say it is really a fantastic mattress. It is firm but plush. It is nice, cool to the touch and I haven't been sweating at night since I've slept on it. I'm also really glad it fits perfectly in our California King bed. Our other Cal King was shorter. There was a gap at the head of the bed that our pillows would fall through to the abiss. This mattress fills that area and all the way to the foot board. We just made our First payment yesterday!! 11 more to go but Its worth it because we don't toss and turn anymore. No more Wasting sleep time trying to get comfortable. Thumbs up on this purchase. The Naples Harraden's

Luxe mattress and Ghostpillow - AndreaL B.

I love the mattress and pillow! Both are very comfortable and have provided a good night’s sleep since using them.


I love my new bed. Haven't slept pain free until i got my new bed. The best bed on the market and super affordable price.

Chose GhostBed Luxe over Casper - Richard L.

Tried both Casper & GhostBed Luxe and will be keeping the GhostBed Luxe. Provides excellent support while minimizing pressure points for a great night's sleep without back pain.

No more back pain - Kenneth N.

No more back pain

Awesome bed!!!! - Brian H.

Awesome bed!!!!

Superior quality but did not fix our issue - Ashley M.

We ordered the ghostbed luxe. Amazing quality mattress. Having a brand new mattress is just one of the best feelings. Unfortunately my partner is a really hot sleeper and we were praying for a miracle when we ordered our ghost bed. Unfortunately it did not solve our issue with nights sweats. May just be a rare situation but we were bummed. The ghostbed pillows and sheets are phenomenal and our friends love their original ghost bed! I do recommend this mattress and the company has been above and beyond helpful to us!

Love the Gel! - William H.

This is such a great mattress. It takes it's sweet time allowing you to sink in, but when you do, it's soft, cool, and wraps you up. The firmness is just right to support my recent back surgery, but the softness is warm and inviting...oh yeah...

It's good - Richard A.

1st 30 days - todd y..

I have had the bed for about 30 days now. It seems to be holding up very well. It’s comfortable. It’s firm. I hope it last for many years to come. I recommend this product.

Best sleep ever - Janice F.

Since getting my bed I have been sleeping through out the night. I have difficulty getting to sleep throughout the night due to neuropathy pain. Since getting the Ghost Bed, I am able to get a good night sleep. Love the adjustable bed base and massaging. Great bed I’m so happy I made the decision to purchase this product.

ghostbed lux - Ryan T.

Excellent mattress and it definitely keeps you cool. I had a really hard time purchasing a mattress online based on only pictures and reviews, but the trial they offer helped make that decision. It is a little firmer than others and that is what I like as I tend to move a lot during sleep and I don't like the feel of 'sinking in' that many other really soft foam mattresses have.

Awesome bed - Amanda S.

It has helped my sleep so much!!!

Great - Tyler M.

I love my luxe mattress!! Immediately changed the way I sleep and wake up feeling! 100% recommend

Amazing! - Chad F.

The Luxe is so nice we had to purchase a second one for our vacation home. Sleeps cool and super comfortable.

Very Happy - Douglas M.

We recently ordered the Luxe mattress and were definitely looking forward to the new mattress. The mattress we replaced was a gel/memory foam and was fairly pricey, which we bought from a store just about 2 years ago. We when we bought our new Ghost bed, we were actually pretty skeptical about buying this and the claims made about it. But our old one slept so hot, and although it seemed comfortable, we always woke up stiff and sore. So we thought we'd try out the Ghost bed. We could always return it if we needed. Well, it arrived more quickly than we thought, which was nice. The next surprise was that that was not a smell to it that these kinds of beds can have. No odor at all. Our first night we were excited to try it. I can say that the cooling effect of it seems quite real. I can't wait until summer to try it then. We both slept very well, and when we woke up did not have that soreness that we usually had on the other bed. It is a little more firm than we were used to, but as it turns out, that doesn't matter. We are comfortable and it feels great to get in bed. It is supportive in all the right places without causing pain. My wife sleeps on her side usually and when she sleeps on a firmer mattress, her hip often sore. But not with the Ghost Luxe! We have had it for about a month and are quite happy with it. We have ZERO intent on returning it. Our only problem is what to do with our old mattress now!

Heavenly sleep. - Ruth A.

The most comfortable bed ever! I'm 86 yrs. Old with severe arthritis and this bed is a blessing. Don't want to get out of it as it makes sleeping and just being in bed a pleasure. The foot and head positions are wonderful with the massage is perfect for watching T.V. Or reading. I am in love with this bed!!! R. A.

Good bed - Thomas S.

Good bed, except a bit firmer than advertised.

Finally restful sleep at last - Nicole L.

Overall, I LOVE this bed. I bought it based on a referral my friend gave. Her husband had done extensive research before purchasing a Ghost bed. To note, they love it. Initially they tried a Tuft & Needle which they found too hard. We received the bed the first week in December so it is still fairly new to us. The biggest benefit is I find once I put my head down I am out faster then I have ever fallen asleep on any bed, I wake up feeling rested. I am not disturbed if my husband turns or moves about at night. The only reason I am deducting a star is I find I have some lower back pains and some nights I find I wake up a little achy, I am not sure if this is just me or that the bed does not give enough for side sleepers, there is the chance that it does not relieve pressure points as well as I would like. It is still new to us and Ghost said it takes some time to get used to. I do think I need to re-evaluate after 30 days. For me, I like the firmness but could probably go half a point less. My husband could go half a point higher so I think this is a good compromise.

I feel ten years younger! - Mary O.

I’m 60 years old and had been sleeping on a very expensive, extra plush pillow top mattress. I thought I liked a really soft mattress, but was waking up several times a night and was really stiff in the mornings - Getting old, I thought. I ordered the Ghost Bed because of it’s cooling properties, but for me the best feature has been sleeping more comfortably through the night and waking significantly less stiff.

2 Ghost Beds/ Twin XL’s/ Full Motion/ 4 Pillows - Bryan B.

The Ghost Bed has allowed my wife and I to sleep most of the night for the first time in 34 years. A Ghost Bed is an investment for your quality of life, and has instant returns!

Ghost bed - Jonathan J.

I haven’t slept this good in a long time. Got the ghost bed king size and the adjustable base. Definitely a must have!

So far - so very good - William S.

Been sleeping on our new GhostBed for two weeks now and our sleep is remarkably better. No more waking up hot - thus the claim appears to be true might be the coolest bed on earth!

Great bed! - Clint C.

We’re very happy with our Ghost Bed! Sleeping much better!

Loving it - Debra R.

We have been sleeping on our Lux Ghostbed for almost 2 weeks and we are loving it. I don’t usually do reviews, but the whole process, starting with the Ghostbed customer service, through the prompt Fed Ex delivery has been wonderful. Will keep you informed through our 101 day trial period

Amazingly comfortable and cool - Nick S.

Amazingly comfortable and cool

Okay - Jared S.

I haven't noticed a significant improvement in my sleep over the 10 year old mattress we replaced. It's not terribly uncomfortable, just not as good as I was hoping for. I sleep very hot and was hoping this would help that situation. It's definitely colder than other mattresses when first going to bed, but I still get just as hot as I used to as the night goes on.

Awesome - Lynsey B.

We got the ghost bed cause we wanted something a little more firm and that would sleep cool. So far it’s been everything we wanted!

In Love with My Bed - Arlette R.

I wake up well rested and no more back pains. The best bed I have ever owned :)

Best bed I’ve ever experienced. - connor s.

By far the best bed I’ve ever laid on. If it wasn’t for drinkin bro’s podcast I would have never ordered it. Thanks to JT, Mat, and Ross for it.

Love this mattress - Alexander K.

Love the mattress. If its as durable as it is comfortable im a customer for life. Only time will tell but after a couple weeks of sleeping on it i can say that its the most comfortable mattress ive ever had by far.

Great bed - Frank L.

Bought the Luxe with the adjustable frame and I can’t say a bad thing about this. I fall asleep so fast and it’s one of the comfortable beds ever.

Ghostbed Luxe, w/adjustable base! - Christopher T.

Got rid of my Tempurpedic and thought I would give this a try! I’m a little bit of a bigger guy (5’9 and fluctuate between 200 and 230lbs.) my old mattress was too soft and I was in constant pain, biweekly chiropractor appointments, and weekly massages. This mattress is just the right firmness, the “cooling sensation” from the top is truely amazing, I was very skeptical. The adjustable base is great, plenty of positions and the massage can be nice. I wish the LED lighting underneath it had changeable color, or at least a warm white color instead of the bright cool blue white. The mattress does shift from side to side when you use the adjustable features. But I bought a mattress keeper (kinda like the thing you put under rugs) it seems to help a ton! I was disappointed in FedEX. My mattress and base shipped together, under 1 master tracking number and showed being delivered together, but I ended up with the base two days before the mattress. Ghostbed customer service wasn’t great, but not bad. Pretty just sorry, nothing we can do. All in all I’m satisfied thus far. Didn’t get the t-shirt it seems most people get.

In love! - Rachel P.

I was always afraid of buying a bed online but I’m so glad that I did! The luxe is definitely the coolest bed I’ve slept on as well as the most comfortable!

Middle Back Pain Gone Just Like That - John W.

Got this bed (King Luxe) about two weeks ago and no chance I am sending it back. I knew night one. I used to wake 3-4 times a night and now maybe once a night. I'm 55 yo male after all so even once a night is amazing for me but I have slept through the entire night more often than not since I got this bed. HUGE difference in quality of life. If you aren't sleeping well you need to try this bed.

Great - Dan F.

Scary good sleep - DANIEL F.

We love the bed and adjustable base. My 3 year old loves that he can sit up and watch tv in our room before it’s bedtime and I’m loving the massage feature. I have yet to get hot at night and has helped me sleep better.

Love this bed! - Jayson R.

My friend got me hooked on the ghost bed when I felt how soft and cool this bed felt. I immediately bought one and couldn’t wait to fully sleep on it. So far it’s been great, I had no trouble adjusting to it at all. Love it.

Okay comfort, but absolutely horrible customer service. I called before the bed had shipped to change the delivery address.

I called to make them aware of this issue and was told it would be looked into and I would be contacted. I called the next week as I was not contacted and could see that the pillows were still being held, I was told the same thing again. I contacted them weekly as the pillows were still held and eventually returned to them. Every time I contacted them I was told they would look into it and contact me. Nothing was done and not once did they contact me without my initiation. I have now received the memory foam pillows in place of the original shredded pillows 40 Business days later. When contacted and asked if they would be a suitable replacement I informed them that we had purchased our own pillows as their delivery took 35 more Business days than their advertised 2-5 and that I would like to discuss other options. That email was never replied to and too my surprise they apparently shipped these pillows instead without any confirmation from me. I never got a shipment notice they just suddenly arrived. The CS agents were always personable and friendly. But for a company advertising "The best customer service n the biz" the experience was completely unacceptable. Apparently once they have your money customer service is an afterthought. I strongly recommend not doing business with this company, considering how many other options are available.

Sleep Trial Scam - Mark R

I purchased a GhostBed Luxe King Bundle with the adjustable base. The mattress was very uncomfortable so we decided to return it under the 101 night trial policy. Although we were aware the we would have to keep the base, GhostBed stated they would remove all discounts and we would only receive a $415 credit for a mattress that is normally $2545.00 but is currently discounted to $1782.00 if purchased separately. We paid $2980.00 for the bundle meaning they stuck us with the base for $2565.00....there sleep trial is a SCAM!

Horrible Company & Bed - Linda B

Horrible Company!, if you can call it a company. Buyer Beware! I purchased the mattress and adjustable foundation from Ghostbed. Two separate pieces with 2 separate discounts which is listed on the receipt. Before the trial period expired, I asked for a return and I followed instructions and donated the mattress as instructed and as acknowledged by Ghostbed. They then informed me that the mattress that I paid $2100 for, I would only receive a refund for $1,400 as they were taking all of the discounts offered on both the mattress AND the adjustable foundation and applying them to the refund. ( $2100 minus $700.) The adjustable foundation is non-returnable and I never asked to return it. They state it is in their terms and conditions yet their refund policy states "FULL REFUND". There is a very loose reference in their terms and conditions but the interpretation is extremely loose and would easily be squashed by a lawyer. These folks don't make their money off of satisfied customers, they make their money off of returns which I guarantee paid for the mattress and then some. DO NOT believe that you will get a full refund on the Sleep Trial from Ghostbed for any reason. Ghostbed is a ripoff and everyone on the internet is saying so.

Poor cutomer service. - Ross D

After hearing nothing from Ghost Bed for an order I placed 26 days ago, I had an online chat with them today. The call center told me that the new estimate would be by the end of the month, but clearly this was a guess as the center could not access the order or shipping system. After the agent kept fumbling around, I cancelled my order. However, the agent could not tell me when a refund would be made. Poor execution and worse customer support. The said someone would follow up with me , but they did noy know when this would occur. Would not recommend purchasing from Ghost Bed.
