GhostBed Mattress Firmness and Feel


We typically start by evaluating a mattress for its firmness and feel.

That way we have a good idea of who would benefit the most from a mattress.

To find out what the Ghostbed feels like, continue reading.

How Firm Is the GhostBed?

When it comes to firmness, the GhostBed is an 8/10, making it firmer than average.

The high density support foam is responsible for much of the firmness. The high density support foam is designed to provide a stable sleeping surface that is well-suited to back sleepers and stomach sleepers, in particular.

Sleeping on the GhostBed

If you’re a back sleeper, the GhostBed will help you get a good night’s rest.

Most lightweight back sleepers will find the GhostBed is one of the best mattresses for back sleepers. It’s a bit firm, but still comfortable.

If you’re a stomach sleeper, you should also find the support you need under your hips.

If you are a side sleeper, we recommend having a look at the Ghostbed Luxe, as it is a softer mattress.

 

What Does the GhostBed Feel Like?


This mattress provides comfort, support, and durability for those who shift positions during the night.

Average Weight Sleepers (130 lbs – 230 lbs)

If you’re closer to the lower end of this weight range and a back sleeper, you may find the bed a little too firm. Again, we enrourage you to check out the Ghostbed Luxe or the 3D Matrix.

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 find the GhostBed supportive and comfortable.

However, for average-weight side sleepers, the GhostBed isn’t a good match. It doesn’t have enough give to relieve pressure points. For average weight side sleepers, take a look at the Ghostbed Luxe.

Heavyweight Sleepers (>230 lbs)

The Ghostbed is comfortable, but if you are more than 300 lbs it is important to choose a mattress that has been made with coils for added durability and support.

The GhostBed should be able to provide just the right level of firmness for stomach sleepers who weigh around 230 lbs. If you’re closer to 300 lbs, you may want to look for a stronger mattress.

The GhostBed may feel too firm to be truly comfortable for heavyweight side sleepers. We recommend checking out the Ghostbed Flex if this is you.

Lightweight Sleepers (<130 lbs)

The GhostBed may feel too firm, so lightweight back and side sleepers should be aware of it.

For people who prefer side sleeping there may be some pain at the shoulders and hips. For those we recommend either the Ghostbed Flex or Ghostbed Luxe.

The lightweight stomach sleepers should feel right at home.

 

GhostBed Mattress Construction


Ghostbed-LayersNow, let’s look under the cover of the GhostBed mattress and see exactly what is inside. We’ll take a close look at each layer and see how it helps the overall performance of the GhostBed.

Cover

The cover of the GhostBed is made with a stretchy material which is very thin and soft. It does a great job of cooling the mattress.

Comfort Layers

On the inside the GhostBed is surrounded by a 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, this latex does the trick: It’s very responsive and it’s ventilation helps to keep you cool during the night.

Under that, you’ll find the 2″ of gel memory foam that will keep your mattress comfortable throughout the night, and prevent you from sweating. This is also an excellent way to provide additional support to the top of the mattress.

Support Layer

The high density foam in the support foundation helps to keep the mattress firm and stable.

Mattress Height

The Ghostbed is 11″ tall in total.

GhostBed Mattress Performance


For many shoppers, the real test is how the mattress performs, and that is what we have explained. Let’s have a look at how Ghostbed did.

Sleeping Hot or Cold

The GhostBed team makes a big deal about how cool their mattress is, and it lives up to the hype.

Ghostbed uses latex and gel in their mattresses, which are known for their cooling properties.

This mattress comes with some extra-added ventilation to help keep the sleeper cool during warmer nights.

Motion Transfer

The GhostBed has some bounce to it, which is good news for combination sleepers, but not so good for couples.

Since it isn’t the best at isolating motion, it is possible that sharing the mattress could cause some disturbance through the night.

If you are looking the best mattress for couples, we recommend the Ghostbed Luxe.

Edge Support

Superb edge support is ensured by the sturdy foam construction of the GhostBed.

You’ll be feeling perfectly steady and well-supported when you sit at the corner or sleep at the edge of your mattress.

Durability

The mattress is constructed using high-quality materials.

It should hold up for seven to 10 years, and we consider it to be highly durable.

Off-Gassing

As soon as you get your GhostBed out of the box, you will notice a faint odor.

This may be slightly off-putting, but we found that it completely dissipated in under 48 hours. This is completely normal from a bed in a box.

Noise

We were not able to notice any noise from the Ghostbed mattress.

Sex

It’s really easy to move around and change positions on the GhostBed.

It is an excellent mattress for sex, as partners should be able to move around easily.

Warranty

The GhostBed comes with a 101-night sleep trial and a 20-year warranty, which should offer some confidence in your decision to buy the product.

 

Ghostbed Return Policy


Returning a GhostBed mattress is simple. In fact, it’s a lot easier than almost any other return that you make.

This is a breakdown of how the return process works.

Step 1: Contact GhostBed

The first step to start a return is reaching out to GhostBed after day 30. Be sure to reach out to them before day 101, however. You can do that by following the below steps:

Pull up the receipt or email with your order number to expedite the process.

Step 2: Complete the Requested Information

GhostBed may ask you to fill out a form or send photos. The form should be used to organize the return while the photos show that your mattress is in good shape. If your mattress is not in good shape, the charity won’t take it, and GhostBed won’t give a refund.

In addition to protecting your new mattress, it’s smart to use a waterproof mattress cover from the first night you sleep on your new bed. You don’t want a spill to ruin the mattress so you can’t return it.

Step 3: Prepare for Mattress Pickup

GhostBed is a great company and they will work with you to schedule a pickup date and time. You will not need to rebox your mattress, but you will need to prepare it for donation. Carrying it to your front door and being home for the pickup is typically what this entails.

Step 4: Watch for Your Refund

After the mattress has been donated, you’ll be able to get a refund. You can expect to get your refund within 3 business days after mattress pickup. It will be returned to you in your original form of payment.
