Quick Summary

GhostBed is a mattress and bedding product manufacturer that offers the following three beds:

  • The GhostBed is a mixed-foam mattress. It is designed with comfort layers of synthetic Dunlop latex and gel memory foam, and a high-density polyfoam support core. The cover is made of polyester. The GhostBed measures 11″ thick; in terms of firmness it is considered ‘Medium Firm,’ or a 6 on the 1-10 firmness scale.
  • The GhostBed Luxe is an all-foam mattress. It includes a top layer of phase-change material (PCM), which reduces the surface temperature and allows sleepers to remain cool. Other components include additional gel memory foam and polyfoam comfort layers and a high-density polyfoam support core. The cover is padded with gel memory foam for added cooling and cushioning, as well. The GhostBed Luxe measures 13″ thick and is considered ‘Medium’ (5) in terms of firmness.
  • The GhostBed Flex  is a memory foam hybrid. It is designed with a top comfort layer of fiber padding, followed by two memory foam comfort layers and a polyfoam transitional layer. The support core consists of pocketed coils and a high-density foam base. The GhostBed Flex measures 13″ thick and is considered ‘Medium Firm’ (6).

Each GhostBed model offers certain advantages for sleeping.

The original GhostBed combines the body-conforming of memory foam and the responsiveness and stability of latex; the result is a balance of softness and firmness that is ideal for sleepers of average weight.

The GhostBed Luxe is suitable for lighter people because it conforms more closely to alleviate aches and pains; this can be particularly beneficial for side sleepers seeking better spinal alignment.

Lastly, the GhostBed Flex offers good body conforming and – like most hybrids – sleeps noticeably cooler than all-foam mattresses.

GhostBed mattresses range in price. The brand offers free shipping to customers within the contiguous U.S. All GhostBed models come with a 101-night sleep trial. The GhostBed is backed by a 20-year warranty, while the Luxe and Flex models are backed by 25-year warranties.

Read on to learn more about GhostBed mattresses in terms of pricing, construction, and performance. This guide also includes an overview of the brand’s shipping, return, and warranty policies, as well as some similar product recommendations.

What Type of Sleeper is Best Suited to a GhostBed Mattress?

Based on our customer feedback, GhostBed mattresses have received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions.

Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses.

Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a mattress.

For more information on sleeping positions please see our guides for side, back, stomach and combination sleepers.

As you can see, all three GhostBed models have earned favorable ratings from most sleeper groups.

The original GhostBed and GhostBed Flex both have ‘Medium Firm’ (6) feels; both are considered suitable for back and stomach sleepers who weigh at least 130 pounds and prefer higher-profile beds.

The GhostBed Luxe, a ‘Medium’ (5) mattress, is a better choice for side sleepers who weigh 230 pounds or less because it contours to their bodies and helps improve spinal alignment.

  • You prefer a bed with a ‘Medium Firm’ feel.

Compare Mattresses

How Do GhostBed Mattresses Compare to Other Beds?

As any consumer does with a product they’re considering, our mattress assessments naturally involve comparing them with other similar products. Be it composition, firmness, or price, we think it’s important to see how GhostBed models stack up to other beds.

The GhostBed is priced relatively low compared to other mixed foam mattresses that include latex. It is ideal for sleepers who like close, consistent conforming and strong motion isolation.

The GhostBed Luxe is a little pricier but the mattress is well-made with high-quality components; the PCM in the cover also helps with temperature neutrality, which is important in memory foam mattresses.

Lastly, the GhostBed Flex hybrid is optimal for hot sleepers and those who prefer more responsive surfaces.
