GhostBed Mattress Firmness And Feel
How is the firmness of the GhostBed mattress?
In terms of firmness, we placed the GhostBed at a medium on our scale, which means it has ample pressure relief, which is essential for those who sleep on their sides or suffering from chronic pain. Although GhostBed isn’t an especially comfortable mattress, we think it has pretty good support, particularly due to that latex-based foam layer.
Keep in mind that firmness is somewhat subjective and will vary based on your body type. We’ll come back to that later, but just know it’s a medium on our scale.
How does the GhostBed feel?
While GhostBed is topped with a layer of Latex Foam, we actually believe that the entire bed appears to be a mixture of three different foams instead of being distinctly similar to it’s topmost layer.
It is a mixed-foam feel. The GhostBed mattress is surprisingly slow to bounce back. GhostBed mattress is a bit slow to bounce back once pressurized (if you press down firmly).
Typically, beds made of latex have a sponginess to them that gives them great responsiveness, but it seems that the middle layers of memory foam are trumping that characteristic in the GhostBed.
GhostBed Mattress Construction
GhostBed is a foam mattress made of polyfoam, memory foam and latex foam. When broken down, you will get three layers of materials (one one of every foam) as you see in the side view below.
The foundation layer on the} GhostBed mattress has 7.5″ of high-density polyurethane foam. Due to its thickness, you’ll get ample support from this mattress.
The base layer of the GhostBed Mattress is 7.5″ in high density polyurethane foam. Because it’s so thick you’ll receive plenty of support from this mattress.
Next, we have} a 2″ layer of gel memory foam, which is supposed to help with temperature regulation and act as a transition between the two layers.
Then, we’ll have two” Gel memory foam layer, which is supposed to help with temperature regulation and to act as a transition between the top and bottom layers.
The top of the GhostBed mattress is the comfort layer, which is a 1.5″ layer of Aerated Latex Foam. It is a more spongier material that provides adequate airflow and gives the bed a bit of bounce.

The cover of the GhostBed is constructed of an elastomer/viscose mix. Honestly, it isn’t anything exceptional, but we’ve no issues with it, other that it gets dirtier than other covers.The cover can be removed (as is the case with most mattress covers), but it isn’t machine washable. Therefore, we don’t actually suggest that you ever remove it. It’s not really necessary and is a bit of trouble. If you have to do some cleaning–maybe there was a spill from your breakfast before going to your bed. Just grab a towel and some water that is warm with mild detergent. Dab on the area until the spill comes out.

The cover is removable (as are most mattress covers) however, it’s not machine washable, so we wouldn’t recommend you ever take it off. It’s not necessary and is a bit of an inconvenience. If you have to clean-up–maybe it was because you spilled breakfast on the floor in the bed, just grab a clean cloth and some hot water and mild detergent. Dab at the spot until it is completely dry.
GhostBed Mattress Performance
Overall, we’ve found that the Ghostbed mattress provides pretty good pressure relief. This is particularly important for those who sleep on their sides. It’s due for the layer of memory foam which is a good place to rest your body in to relieve pressure points. Keep in mind that those who weigh more than 160 pounds will feel more pressure relief than extra smaller people.
GhostBed does not sleep hot however, it doesn’t actually sleep cool, either. The company says their gel memory foam is supposed be able to help keep your bed cooler and, perhaps it does but it’s not keeping the bed actually cool to the touch.
We’re referring to the GhostBed as a mattress that is temperature neutral. It’s not going to cause you to sweat during the night however, it also isn’t going to make you feel cold. Additionally, the lighter you are, the more you will rest on top of the mattress (and the more latex foam) and, as a result it will feel cooler. If you’re overweight, you’ll sink in more and might be a little warmer.
Edge support is an important mattress performance metric for people who sleep in beds. We all know the drill when sleeping with someone else. It usually results in one person ending in the middle of the mattress while one partner takes over the middle. That’s where edge support comes in. Edge support
GhostBed offers good edge support, so should this happen then at least the unfortunate sleeping person won’t feel like they’re about to roll off the bed.
Motion isolation refers to how well the mattress can limit cross-bed motion. Good motion isolation means that the motion of one person’s turning and tossing will not be noticed by the other partner. GhostBed is a great way restricting the transfer of motion, so you can sneak out of bed to catch a rerun of the late night show Seinfeld if that’s what you want to do. Simply keep the volume at a minimum and your friend will fall asleep right through it.
Is GhostBed a good mattress for couples?
Yes, we would say this is a good mattress for people who share their bed with a loved one or the pet of your choice. Two of the features we prefer to highlight for couples are edge support and motion isolation. The GhostBed mattress has passed all of our tests. We highly recommend this mattress for couples.
