30% off GhostBed mattresses & 2 free pillows + 10-year stain protection plan ($489 value)
Nature’s Sleep launched in 2001 with the goal of creating the perfect mattress. After years of research, the GhostBed brand was born.
The flagship all-foam GhostBed Mattress was the first product in the lineup, but GhostBed soon launched other products, including pillows, bedding, bed frames, and three additional mattress models. The GhostBed Luxe is an all-foam model with cooling technology, the GhostBed Flex uses a hybrid design, and the GhostBed 3D Matrix is a technologically advanced hybrid model.
This review will focus on the flagship GhostBed Mattress, which is also GhostBed’s most affordable model. The GhostBed Mattress is an all-foam model constructed of three layers, including a layer of latex, a layer of memory foam, and a layer of polyfoam. It measures 11 inches thick and has a medium firm feel, rating at a 6 on the 10-point firmness scale.
Watch the video below to see how the GhostBed Classic performed when put to the test in our lab.
The GhostBed Mattress is a mixed-foam model constructed of three layers.
Two layers are used in the comfort system. First, a 1.5-inch layer of synthetic latex adds a more buoyant feel to the surface of the mattress. This layer is aerated with small holes to allow heat to dissipate. Next, a 2-inch layer of memory foam gives deeper contouring. To reduce the heat retention often associated with memory foam, GhostBed’s proprietary formula has larger cells and a gel infusion to pull away heat. The support core consists of 7.5 inches of high-density polyfoam to give lasting support.
The mattress cover uses a blend of polyester and viscose. It is soft-to-the-touch and somewhat stretchy to move with the mattress as it conforms to the sleeper’s body.
With a rating of 6, the GhostBed Mattress has a medium firm feel. This is one of the most popular firmness settings, and most sleepers are likely to find it comfortable. The mattress measures 11 inches thick.
The GhostBed Mattress uses three layers of mixed foam. Synthetic latex is used in the top layer. The second layer uses memory foam. Finally, the support core consists of polyfoam.

2″ Memory Foam (Gel-Infused)
The flagship GhostBed Mattress is the most affordable option from GhostBed. It’s competitively priced for a quality all-foam model, coming in close to the middle of the average price range for foam mattresses. Additionally, GhostBed frequently offers discounts.
All standard mattress sizes are available. GhostBed also sells split kings, which consist of two twin XL mattresses.
|Twin||38" x 75"||11"||58 lbs.||$945|
|Twin XL||38" x 80"||11"||62 lbs.||$1,095|

|Queen||60" x 80"||11"||89 lbs.||$1,395|

|Sleeper Type||Under 130 lbs||130-230 lbs||Above 230 lbs|
Regardless of their weight, most side sleepers will experience balanced support and contouring when sleeping on the GhostBed. The two layers of the comfort system work together to contour to a side sleeper’s shape. Latex in the top layer relieves pressure with a resilient feel, while the layer of memory foam gives a deeper hug.
Those who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds are likely to find the medium firm feel of the GhostBed supportive. Individuals in this group should sink in just enough to take pressure off their hips and shoulders and keep their spines aligned. The GhostBed may be a little firm for side sleepers who weigh under 130 pounds, so they may experience slight pressure buildup. Side sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds could sink in more than ideal near their hips and shoulders, which could make it harder to keep their spines aligned.
The GhostBed provides an even plane that is likely to be suitable for back sleepers below 230 pounds. Two comfort layers give cushioning and contouring, while the high-density polyfoam core limits sinkage.
Because back sleepers tend to need a slightly firmer feel than side sleepers in order to prevent their hips from sinking in too deeply, the medium firm feel of the GhostBed may be best suited to those who weigh under 130 pounds. The hips of individuals who weigh over 130 pounds may dip in a bit, which could put a strain on the sleeper’s spine. This is unlikely to be severe, but it may be more pronounced for those who carry extra weight near their hips, and even more so among those over 230 pounds.
Since most individuals carry much of their weight near their midsections, stomach sleeping tends to put extra force near the center of the bed. The GhostBed’s medium firm feel is most likely to suit stomach sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. Its high-density polyfoam core should provide adequate support, while its two comfort layers give the cushioning that many stomach sleepers enjoy.
Stomach sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds should get good support, but they may prefer a slightly plusher surface. Those who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds can sink in a little more, so the bed may feel softer to them. Individuals in this weight group who carry the bulk of their weight near their midsections may find it a bit harder to keep their spines aligned. People who weigh over 230 pounds may find they sink in too deeply when sleeping on their stomachs, which could put a strain on their spines.
GhostBed ships to all 50 states. The GhostBed Mattress is sold through the GhostBed website and Amazon. Customers can also see the GhostBed in person at their showroom in Fort Lauderdale.
Shipping is free in the contiguous United States. Orders to Alaska and Hawaii have a $600 shipping charge.
Most orders ship within 24 hours after the order is placed, and GhostBed will send tracking information when the mattress ships. They typically arrive in 3-5 business days.
Mattresses are vacuum-packed and compressed in a box that measures 39 inches by 23 inches by 20 inches. Orders ship via FedEx. Customers can sign up for the FedEx Delivery Manager to put a vacation hold on their package, pick up their shipment at FedEx location, provide delivery instructions, and more.
Customers are responsible for bringing in their mattress and setting it up. The GhostBed Mattress can stay in the box for up to 6 months, but GhostBed recommends unpacking it sooner so that it expands properly.
White Glove delivery is available in the 48 contiguous United States at an extra charge of $199 for 1-2 items and $299 for 3 or more items. These fees are non-refundable.
The White Glove delivery team will contact you to set up a delivery time. This service includes delivery, unpacking of the new mattress, and removal of the old mattress.
Customers in the contiguous United States who purchase directly from GhostBed can take advantage of a 101-night sleep trial. Owners must have the bed for at least 30 days before initiating a return. If you decide you don’t like your mattress within the trial period, GhostBed will work to make it right or issue a full refund of the purchase price. If you return the mattress, GhostBed will help arrange for it to be donated and a pickup crew will remove it from your home.
Mattresses that are unopened and unused can also be returned, but a 15% restocking fee applies. Only one mattress can be returned per household.
The GhostBed Mattress comes with a 20-year partially-prorated limited warranty for the original owner of the mattress.
Covered defects include indentations over 1 inch and flaws that cause cracking or splitting foam.
To be eligible for the warranty, the mattress must be free of physical damage and soiling. Additionally, issues with the mattress must not be the result of using an improper foundation, misusing the mattress, or handling it improperly.
For the first 10 years, GhostBed will repair or replace mattresses it finds to be defective. The customer will be responsible for handling and transportation costs.
From years 11 through 20 of the warranty period, GhostBed will elect to either repair the mattress (a handling charge applies) or replace the mattress at a prorated rate and with a transportation charge. This rate starts at 50% of the original purchase price and goes up 5% each year.
