Sleep is essential to staying healthy and functioning effectively in our daily lives. Yet, despite some of us having enough hours of sleep, we’re not reaping the benefits of decent sleep. Poor sleep quality can be seen in wakefulness, difficulty falling asleep, and fatigue throughout the day. We must also consider the quality of our sleep.
Nightly rituals, check! Room ambiance, check! How about your bed?
We’ll explore ways we can improve our sleep quality with this in mind. Let’s begin with the mattress that we use.
The GhostBed mattress might be worth a look if you want a cool, budget-friendly bed-in-a-box mattress. Take a look at our review to see if it’s a fit for you.
For those of you who prefer a more visual experience, here is a video review by Derek from NapLab’s YouTube channel. Do check out our article below, however, because it has a comprehensive overview of Ghostbed.
General Overview: Ghostbed Foundation Assembly
The GhostBed was developed by industry veterans Nature’s Sleep with the goal of “sleeping longer, better and cooler”. The company has also launched pillows, beddings, bed frames, and other mattress models. But for this review, we will be focusing our attention on its flagship GhostBed Mattress.
This mattress is a budget-friendly, medium-firm, all-foam model. It has three layers (latex, memory foam, and polyfoam) and accommodates most sleeper types and body types.
It is becoming more common for people to overlook the importance of a mattress in their ability to rest properly. Many people make the error of using a mattress that doesn’t provide enough support or comfort.
We understand that a mattress purchase is an expensive one and we want to help you make informed decisions.
If you are looking for, the GhostBed is your best option.
- Light sleeper, sensitive to partner’s movements throughout the night.
- A bed should be able to accommodate all types of body and sleep positions.
- You’re on a budget.
- You’re suffering from hip and back pain.
- A mattress with moderate firmness is desirable.
- You want cooler sleeping.
- People who are overweight may feel uncomfortable if they are unable to stomach-sleep.
- Mattresses with coils may not give you as much bounce.
- People who prefer a mattress that has a lot more cradling might not find the GhostBed comfortable enough.
What is it made of?
If you’re prone to overheating and night sweats, the 1.5″ aerated synthetic latex layer, and 2″ gel-infused memory foam should keep you well-ventilated. Memory foam offers additional support. The final layer is the 7.5-inch high-density polyfoam layer that supports your spine alignment. It is firm enough to prevent back and hip problems.
Say GOODBYE to waking up feeling STIFF! This will make your bed comfortable without making it too difficult to sleep on.
For added comfort, a plush cover made of polyester and viscose is also available. It is elastic, strong, but breathable, and very pleasant to the touch. Ghostbed Foundation Assembly
It’s not to say that you’ll be sleeping cold with the GhostBed. It retains heat. But, the way it’s made makes it cooler than other foam alternatives on the market. This is very important because temperature affects perceived comfort.
The latex layer has small perforations that improve the mattress’s air circulation. The memory foam could keep heat, but its bigger cells and gel infusion help keep it cool as well.

Good motion isolation is important, especially for those who share a bed with a partner. Most people claim it is better to sleep with their partner than sleeping alone. However, co-sleepers score lower on objective sleep quality assessments. It could be that their partner shifts and moves while they sleep.
The GhostBed mattress isolates motion well thanks to its three layers of mixed foam. This means that you are less likely to wake up to your partner turning and tossing.
Motion isolation is achieved by the latex layer and memory foam, which absorbs movement. It is comparable to most foam models.
The two-layer comfort system of the Ghostbed adjusts to the sleeper’s body by redistributing weight and relieving pressure points. The top layer spreads the compression caused by your weight across a larger area due to the latex’s low point elasticity. Memory foam is more elastic than normal and will compress faster under your weight.
What does this mean? This implies that the latex and memory foam mix provides comparable cradling and pressure relief. You won’t feel too far from your bed.
The GhostBed can be used by people of all weights and sleeping styles. But we recommend it for side, back, stomach, and combination sleepers.
Feel And Firmness
The GhostBed will provide the appropriate amount of support for most back sleepers. The GhostBed will allow your hips and hips to sink into it without you feeling like they’re sinking. The GhostBed is one of the best mattresses for back sleepers. However, some lightweight back sleepers find the mattress too hard.
You will find plenty of support if you are a stomach sleeper. Also, combo sleepers would appreciate GhostBed’s medium-firm mattress.
A medium-firm mattress hits the sweet spot between pressure relief and support. It would be soft enough to relieve shoulder discomfort while sleeping on the side and firm enough to support the hips while resting on the back. So, changing sleeping positions won’t be a problem!
The Ghostbed provides the stability and sponginess that you would expect from a latex foamboard, but with less bounce. The slow-moving, contoured memory foam below contributes to this.
A mattress with coils may be a better option for those over 230lbs. The GhostBed Classic may be too firm for heavier side sleepers to be comfortable. Instead, they can think of the King GhostBed and the King GhostBed Foundation. Ghostbed Foundation Assembly
We now know that beds aren’t just for sleeping. No need to play coy. GhostBed has a higher level of responsiveness than other foams making it more sexy. Many couples love the GhostBed’s bounce and mixed layers. It also gives off a buoyant feeling. The memory foam layer of the mattress conforms better and provides more traction.

How does the GhostBed differ from other brands sold in stores?

GhostBed allows you to test it for free for 101 nights and provides a 20-year guarantee. GhostBed will allow you to access your bed from anywhere in your home.
Does the GhostBed need to be flipped?
Nope! You don’t have to, since the memory foam and latex comfort layers are on the top side. We do recommend rotating the mattress head-to-toe every three months to increase mattress longevity.
Does the GhostBed have a break-in period?
It may take up to 24 hours for your GhostBed Mattress to expand, breathe, adapt, and adjust to your room’s temperature after it is delivered. It is ready to use immediately.
During the colder winter months, it may take up to 5 days for your GhostBed to fully decompress. The temperature-sensitive materials would take a long time to return to their normal state if they were stored in a chilly vehicle or warehouse.
Do take note that your body may take a night or two to get used to a new mattress as well. With GhostBed’s 101-night sleep trial, you’ll get to adjust and then some!
