The Ghostbed mattress is among the newest innovations in the mattress industry, and this product certainly enables people to have a restful sleep. Ghostbed is manufactured by Nature’s Sleep, a mattress company that existed for a long period of time, specifically more than a decade. This company has been producing good-quality sleep products such as beddings, mattress toppers, and mattresses.
The developers of Ghostbed have over 35 years of experience in designing mattresses. They only make mattresses out of high-quality materials. Most of these developers are skilled American craftsman. Made up of gel memory foam and latex foam, this mattress brand is specially made to provide average sleepers with a balanced feeling. This is also designed to allow sleepers to have a cool sleeping experience and promote spinal alignment. The makers of Ghostbed mattress are dedicated to providing sleepers with the highest level of comfort.
It is also the commitment of Ghostbed producers to provide their customers with restful sleep. They also make sure that their consumers are satisfied with their products, so they offer a 20-year warranty for all their mattresses. This is among the longest warranties that exist in the mattress industry. In addition to the long warranty, they also offer a risk-free 101 Night Sleep Trial. The warranty and the trial period offered by the company are evidence that they really care about the welfare and happiness of their customers.
Together with the Ghostbed mattress is also a matching wood bed frame that is made to provide maximum support for the mattress. This is one thing that Nature’s Sleep is proud of. There is no other online mattress company that offers the same.
As claimed by the creators of Ghostbed, their mattress provides excellent comfort and universal support to all types of sleepers, may it back, stomach, or side sleepers. So, does the company keep its promises? In order to check this, we conducted an unbiased review.
The Ghostbed mattress is composed of three layers of good-quality materials. These are as follows:
- Aerated latex foam
- Gel memory foam
- High-density support foam
When the three layers were combined, the mattress will have a total thickness of 11 inches.
The Topmost Layer
The first layer of the Ghostbed is composed of 1.5-inch aerated latex foam, which highly contributes to the cooling capacity of the mattress. This foam also adds to the softness and bounce of the mattress. This layer is also beneficial in relieving pressure points and improves the level of comfort that the mattress provides. Moreover, this foam is also responsive to the movements of the sleeper.
The Second Layer
The second layer of the Ghostbed mattress is composed of 2-inch gel memory foam. This enhances the level of support the Ghostbed mattress provides to sleepers. It also aids in relieving body pain caused by pressure. The gel memory foam is as well responsive to the sleepers’ movements but the aerated latex foam is more responsive. This is the reason why this foam is in the second layer. Since the memory foam is infused with gel, this layer has minimal heat retention, thereby keeping the surface of the mattress cool.
The Final Layer
The bottom layer of the Ghostbed mattress is composed of 7.5-inch high-density support foam. Since this foam naturally has a high density, this is best used as the foundation. This has the capacity to support the foam in the upper layers.
The cover is an important component of the mattress. It completely wraps the mattress and securely holds the 3 layers of foam. Since this is made up of 100% polyester, Ghostbed mattress’ cover is stretchy, soft, and silky. We appreciate the snug fit of the cover around the mattress. It immediately returned to its original state after it is being pulled. The cover’s side panel is composed of a combination of polypropylene and polyester. The side panel provides added support and protection for the mattress. Although the cover is durable, it is thin, which contributes to the breathability of the mattress.
The firmness of the mattress is measured on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the softest and 10 being the firmest. As for the Ghostbed mattress, we give it a rating of 6.5. This means that this mattress has average firmness, making it suitable for most sleepers. We just want to emphasize that when we laid on it at first, we felt that it is 7. However, after lying on it for some time, we felt that the softness has improved.
As claimed by Nature’s Sleep, the Ghostbed provides extraordinary comfort, and we have confirmed that this claim is valid. We noticed that it really provides the comfort that almost all sleepers need. The latex foam is highly responsive, allowing sleepers to avoid the feeling of being trapped in the mattress. The memory foam in the second layer of the mattress is not that responsive as the first, but when it becomes responsive, it perfectly adjusts to the contour of your body. The memory and the latex foam harmoniously function together to offer extraordinary comfort.
The motion transfer is also minimal, which further improves the level of comfort the Ghostbed mattress can provide.
The Ghostbed is intentionally made to promote proper spine alignment and give pressure point relief. The first and the second layers adjust to the contour of the body, and the last layer provides support for the upper layers. Thus, if you’re in search of a mattress that provides exceptional support for the entire body, Ghostbed is a good option. Although the mattress becomes softer as you lie down on it, it does not mean that it can’t support your body anymore. In general, we have noticed that the support the Ghostbed mattress can provide is more than average.
When you say heat retention, this refers to the level or amount of body heat the mattress can absorb. When a mattress has a high level of heat retention, this means that the surface of the mattress can easily become warm, thereby reducing comfort. As for the Ghostbed, this mattress has minimal heat retention. This is because of the aerated latex foam placed on the topmost layer of the mattress. The foam allows air to flow. In addition, the mattress’ cover is also breathable. The infused gel in the memory foam (middle layer) also functions to prevent heat retention.
When the mattress gives off undesirable odor, this is referred to as off-gassing. This is the usual issue that you can encounter when purchasing a mattress. Chemicals are used during the manufacturing process. However, for the Ghostbed, we have observed that this mattress has minimal off-gassing. This is so because the company does not use any harsh chemicals during the manufacturing process. If ever you observe undesirable smell with the Ghostbed, we suggest placing the mattress in a well-ventilated area and leave it for a few minutes. The smell will just go away for some time (although we believe that you won’t notice any odor at all).
As for the intimacy level of the Ghostbed, we can say that it is not that impressive. Since this is an all-foam mattress, it does not easily bounce back. A mattress with a low bounce back rate is perfect for sleeping, but it is not suitable when engaging in intimate activities. So if you’re using a Ghostbed mattress, you really need to exert extra effort if you are doing intimate acts. Innerspring mattresses perform better when it comes to intimacy.
It is also our goal to determine the level of support and comfort that this mattress can provide for the different type of sleepers, may it back, stomach, or side sleepers. Each type of sleeper requires different levels of support in the back and even the whole body.
The Back Sleepers
In general, back sleepers prefer mattresses that have average firmness, those that are neither too soft nor too firm. If the mattress is too firm, it can trigger back pain. Since the Ghostbed mattress has medium firmness, it provides the right degree of support and comfort that back sleepers need. It also promotes proper spine alignment, thus reducing back, neck, and shoulder pain and improving pressure point relief.
The Stomach Sleepers
Stomach sleepers usually prefer to use a mattress that is smooth and soft and provides a high level of comfort. This is what exactly the Ghostbed offers. The top layer is soft and smooth and the second layer has the capacity to adjust to the body’s contour. However, we would like to emphasize those stomach sleepers with more than average weight may not like the Ghostbed mattress because it excessively conforms to the body’s contour. Overall, we believe that almost all stomach sleepers are satisfied with the comfort and support that this mattress provides.
The Side Sleepers
Similar to stomach sleepers, side sleepers prefer mattresses that are neither too soft nor too firm. Since the Ghostbed mattress has an average firmness, it provides optimal support for side sleepers. We have observed that the topmost layer is somewhat firm at first, but after a few seconds, we have noticed that the center layer (the memory foam) slowly adjusts to the body’s contour, thereby promoting proper spine alignment and providing enough support and comfort.
There is enough spacing between the slats. This is designed to give enough support to the foam. A piece of cloth is also attached to the frame to maintain its proper spacing. Together with the foundation is a cover, which matches to the cover of the mattress.
Although it is recommended to use the provided bed frame, you are also free to use your preferred foundation. If you want to use another bed frame, it is best to choose those frames that have sturdy slats. Consider those foundations that have slats that have narrow separations. You may also use a solid foundation like a platform bed.
The manufacturer of the Ghostbed mattress has been in the industry for more than 10 years. They produce mattresses according to scientific research and their personal experiences. They aim to make mattresses that promote proper spinal alignment, reduce body pain, and provide a high level of comfort. The mattress comes with a foundation, which is intentionally made to provide support to the three layers of foam, thereby enhancing the support and comfort that the mattress provides to sleepers.
All Ghostbed mattresses have a 20-year warranty and have a 101-night trial period. They also offer a full money-back guarantee. In general, the Ghostbed mattress impressed us so much.
