For firmness we place the GhostBed in the middle of our scale. That means that it provides ample pressure relief, which is essential for side sleepers or people with chronic pain.

How does the GhostBed feel?
While GhostBed is covered with an additional layer of latex foam, we actually believe that the bed as a whole is a mix of the three foam materials rather than feeling distinctly like it’s topmost layer.
We would consider it to be a mixed-foam feel. The GhostBed mattress is surprisingly slow to bounce back. GhostBed mattress is a bit slow to bounce after being depressed (if you press it down hard).
Usually, latex beds have a sponginess to them which gives them a great responsiveness however, it appears that the center area of the memory foam layer is overruling that characteristic in the GhostBed.
GhostBed Mattress Construction
GhostBed is an all-foam mattress made of polyfoam, memory foam and latex foam. When broken down, you will have three layers of foam (one layers of foam for each), as you can observe in the side-view below.
The foundation layer on the} GhostBed Mattress is 7.5″ in high density polyurethane foam. Due to its thickness it will provide plenty of comfort from this mattress.
The base layer of the GhostBed mattress comprise 7.5″ from high-density polyurethane. Because it’s that thick it will provide plenty of support from this mattress.
Next, we have} an additional 2″ layer of gel memory foam it is believed to assist in temperature regulation as well as act as a transition between the top and bottom layers.
Following that, we’ll add a 2″ layer of gel memory foam, which is supposed to help in temperature regulation as well as be a bridge between the top and bottom layers.
The top layer of the GhostBed mattress is a 1.5″ layer of Aerated Latex Foam. Latex foam is a soft, spongier material that provides good airflow and gives the bed a bit of bounce.
The top of GhostBed’s GhostBed mattress is a 1.5″ thick layer air-aerated latex foam. It is a more spongier material that provides adequate airflow and gives the bed some bounce.
The cover on the GhostBed is constructed of a polyester/viscose blend. Honestly, it isn’t anything exceptional, but we’ve no issues with it, other than it tends to get dirtier and more quickly than other covers.The cover can be removed (as are the majority of mattress covers) however, it’s not machine washable, which is why we wouldn’t recommend you ever remove it. It’s not necessary, and is a bit of trouble. If you have to clean up–perhaps it was because you spilled breakfast on the floor in bed–just grab a cloth and some hot water and mild detergent. Dab onto the spot until the stain is gone.

GhostBed Mattress Performance
Overall, we’ve found that the Ghostbed mattress provides pretty good pressure relief, which is crucial if you’re a side sleeper. This is due to the memory foam layer that cradles your body to ease pressure points. Remember, anyone above 160 pounds will experience greater relief from pressure than smaller people.
GhostBed does not sleep hot, per se, but it doesn’t really sleep cool either. The company says the gel memory foam it uses is supposed ensure that the mattress stays cooler, and maybe it does but it’s not keeping the bed really cool to the touch.
We consider the GhostBed as a mattress that is temperature neutral. It’s not going to cause you to sweat during the night and also won’t cause you to feel cold. Additionally the lighter you are and the less you lie on top of your mattress (and the more latex foam) and, consequently the cooler you’ll feel. If you’re heavier and sink deeper, you’ll feel more and rest a little hotter.
Edge support is an essential measure of mattress performance for those who share beds. We’ve all seen the scenario, sleeping with someone often means that one partner ends being pushed to the side of the mattress while one partner takes over the middle. That’s the reason edge support is important. Edge support
GhostBed has an excellent edge support. So, should this happen, at least the unlucky sleeping person won’t feel like they’re in danger of falling off the bed.
Motion isolation refers to how well the mattress can limit cross-bed motion. A mattress that is motion-isolated will ensure that one partner’s tossing and turning isn’t felt by the other partner. GhostBed does an excellent job of limiting the transfer of motion. You can get up to watch midnight reruns of Seinfeld if that’s what you’d like to do. Just keep the volume down and your friend will fall asleep right through it.
Is GhostBed a good mattress for couples?
Yes, we think it’s a great mattress for people who sleep with a partner or maybe a large, well-loved pet. Two features we would like to emphasize for couples are the support for edges as well as motion-isolation. The GhostBed mattress is a winner in all our tests. We highly recommend this bed to couples.
