Similar to Loom&Leaf mattress, who was created by Saatva, one famous luxury innerspring mattress manufacturer. Ghostbed was created by Nature’s Sleep, a company that has been in the sleeping industry for more than 15 years.
Ghostbed mattress is a combination of latex and memory foam. Compared with other online mattress companies like Casper. There are two major advantages when compare to them.
The first is its thickness. The most online mattress is made up of 3 foam layers. Ghostbed is the same, made up of 3 foam layers. But it’s thickness is 11”, and the standard is 10”.

Structure of Ghostbed mattress(Unboxing)
The Inside was made up of 3 foam layers
- The top layer was 1½” Continuous aerated latex foam, this main purpose of this layer is to provide support, cooling and bounce back. They use the latex foam on top and memory foam second structure, memory foam is too soft and will release heat, although they use gel technology already when sleeping for a long time, you’ll feel hot still, so the top latex layer is very necessary. And latex is more paddy, which is more friendly for making love.
- The second layer is 2″ Gel memory foam, memory foam is the key material for a mattress, it contours your body based on your curve, provides a good experience on pressure release and comfortable. But this layer can’t be too thick, if too thick it will become very hot, even gel memory foam, you have to rely on other technologies to make it more breathable. 2-3 inch would be the best choice.
- The support layer is 7½”high-density foam, the support layer is thicker than the most mattress, most of them are 6”. This is why Ghostbed’s warranty is as long as 20 years. This layer is to provide support and longevity.
The outside constructed from 100% polyester

- Luxurious cover with a blend of viscose and polyester for stretchability and a plush feel.
- Cover easily zips off for easy spot cleaning.
- Totally delivery an ultra soft, comfortable, flexible and durable sleeping experience.
Firmness, feeling, support
There’s only one firmness scale for Ghostbed, the official claim they did research and developed Ghostbed which can provide optimum comfort for every type of sleeper. But during our testing, we still find it’s a little firm. The firmness scale is 6.5-7/10(10 is the firmest).
I’ve often found lying directly on memory foam, even gel memory foam leaves me hot and sweaty, and hinders sleep from that, even if they provide relief from the pain. The latex layer on top of the memory foam significantly changes that, and I find myself getting the benefit of memory foam without the heat build-up that seems inevitable for such materials. The mattress is reasonably firm for those who prefer support over softness, yet has enough cushion that even those with a preference for soft will rapidly adapt to it.
For most latex foam mattress, it will become softer as you lay it on for some time. And is need some time for your body to adapt to the mattress. This is very common, take shaving, for example, if you are used to the traditional razor, the first attempt of electric shaver would be awkward, even you use the best electric shaver.
Gel Memory foam is a temperature sensitive material, very warm or humid weather may make the mattress feel extra soft, while the very cold weather may make the mattress somewhat firmer. A bedroom temperature between 65°-75° Fahrenheit will generate the proper feel.
An important tip is to try to rotate the mattress from head to foot every two weeks for the first few months, followed by once every two or three months, or as needed.

The price starts from $495 to $925, which is same as Brooklyn mattress, much cheaper than Leesa, Casper, Yogabed, Loom&Leaf, but more expensive than Tuft&Needle, who is the cheapest online foam mattress.

I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable this bed is. I read all the reviews about the bed being too firm, or to providing enough of the “right” support – granted, these were the outliers from all the positive reviews… but it was enough to make me skeptical. Because of the money back guarantee I figured I should AT LEAST give it a try. I was so wrong! This bed is amazing, and I’ve already recommended it to a ton of my friends. Shipping was so easy, the instructions for unpackaging couldn’t be easier. Honestly, buying a new mattress has never been easier. I was sleeping on another brand memory foam mattress before that was smaller and triple the cost of this mattress, and honestly GhostBed is significantly more comfortable. I’ve never slept better! Great job guys! You know what you’re doing! “
Please note, if you get one with a “promotional” offer such as the ghost pillows, and decide it is not right for you they will require you return the pillows at your own expense otherwise deduct $85 each from your refund. Promotional does not mean you have to give them back. Their business practices are shady. Order a purple or helix instead, they actually respect their customers.
I’m sorry to hear that James.
