The GhostBed Natural Mattress is a hybrid model constructed of natural latex, wool, and pocketed coils. These high-quality materials create a responsive surface that strikes a balance between gentle pressure relief and ample support. With a medium firm (6) feel, this mattress is well suited to a wide range of sleep positions and body types.
The topmost layer of the GhostBed Natural uses 1.8 ounces of natural wool, which is a breathable material that dissipates body heat and wicks away moisture. The wool is also naturally fire-resistant to eliminate the need for chemical flame retardants.
Beneath the wool is a 2-inch layer of natural Talalay latex, which has a soft feel that cradles the body without conforming too deeply. Talalay latex is also breathable and buoyant, resisting heat retention while responding quickly to changes in pressure.
An 8-inch support core gives the GhostBed Natural its supportive feel. The core consists of individually wrapped coils that reduce motion transfer and noise while creating a responsive surface. Reinforced coils along the perimeter limit edge sinkage, which can help the sleep area feel larger by allowing sleepers to rest up to the edge of the bed.
The coil support core rests on a 1-inch layer of sturdy natural Dunlop latex. This highly durable material helps increase the bed’s longevity. A GOTS- and USDA-certified organic cotton cover wraps around the mattress, providing softness and breathability.
The GhostBed Natural Mattress has an organic cotton cover and a comfort system composed of natural wool and Talalay latex. An 8-inch pocketed coil system acts as the support core, and a Dunlop latex base layer reinforces the springs as they compress.

Though the GhostBed Natural Mattress is on the higher end of the average price range for a hybrid model, its price-point is on par with others that incorporate natural latex.
The GhostBed Natural Mattress is available in all six standard sizes, as well as a split king. At 12 inches thick, this is a medium-profile model. While the GhostBed Natural is lighter than many latex hybrids, shoppers should consider the weight if they plan to set up the mattress on their own.

Side Sleepers: The GhostBed Natural Mattress balances cradling and support for many side sleepers. Its medium firm (6) feel is especially appropriate for those who weigh more than 230 pounds.
Side sleepers tend to place considerable pressure on wider parts of the body, such as the hips and shoulders. As such, side sleepers tend to benefit from surfaces that contour to these areas while offering enough support to keep the spine in a neutral position.
The GhostBed Natural Mattress’ wool and Talalay latex comfort layers gently cradle sharp areas to reduce pressure buildup, while the coil core limits sinkage to help keep the spine in alignment.
Back Sleepers: The GhostBed Natural Mattress performs exceptionally well for back sleepers, particularly those who weigh under 230 pounds.
Back sleepers typically enjoy supportive surfaces that contour subtly while resisting sinking. Mattresses that are too soft may allow the hips to sag, pulling the spine out of alignment. Meanwhile, mattresses that are too firm may not allow the hips to sink in enough to promote good posture.
The GhostBed Natural’s wool and Talalay latex comfort system cradles the body enough to remain comfortable without conforming too deeply. Additionally, the coil core and Dunlop latex base provide durable support that promotes healthy sleep posture.
Stomach Sleepers: Regardless of their body types, the GhostBed Natural Mattress provides many stomach sleepers with a comfortable balance of support and cushioning.
Stomach sleepers typically place significant pressure on their midsections and necks. Mattresses that conform too deeply may disrupt proper spinal alignment and contribute to lumbar strain, which can cause discomfort. Those who favor stomach sleeping typically benefit from firmer sleep surfaces that cushion the body gently without sinking.
The GhostBed Natural’s wool and Talalay latex are soft enough to relieve pressure but supportive enough to resist sinking. The coil core and Dunlop latex base also provide even support that’s conducive to good posture. Because of its medium firm (6) feel, the GhostBed Natural may be particularly appropriate for stomach sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds.
