The GhostBed Flex is a 7-layer, hybrid mattress that’s great for couples! It makes a good match for couples due to its cooling properties (extra bodies typically means extra body heat) but it also creates almost zero motion transfer.

Does your sleeping partner’s tossing and turning wake you up throughout the night? You won’t have to worry about that on the GhostBed Flex. Plus, it’s available in a split king size so you can truly sleep soundly on your side of the bed. Keep reading our in-depth GhostBed Flex mattress review to learn more.

GhostBed Flex Mattress Review

We personally unboxed and tested the GhostBed Flex mattress in our Mattress Lab. Read on to find out more about this bed and what makes it so great.

Highlights from Our Testing

Setting Up the GhostBed Flex

It took us exactly two minutes to unbox and set up the GhostBed Flex mattress. This mattress was on the heavier side but it puffed to life instantly. It had a slight odor when it was first opened but it went away quickly. A queen size mattress weighs approximately 122 lbs so you’ll definitely want to recruit some help to get this bed set up. See our video below to watch the process!

Testing Motion Transfer

The motion absorbing abilities of the GhostBed Flex mattress are scary good. Our sleep subjects could barely even tell when their partner was on the mattress; they didn’t feel them leave the bed at all.

Plus, when we tested this with wine, we were even more impressed. Take a look at the video below — the wine was hauntingly still!

Measuring Pressure Relief

When on the GhostBed Flex we noticed a couple of areas of high pressure on our sleep subjects, particularly in the hips and shoulders. Take a look at our pressure mapping results below.

Straight Spine Check

The spines of our sleep subjects while on the GhostBed Flex were well taken care of—they were nearly in perfect alignment. Check out the photo below to see the ideal straight spine we look for.

Customer Reviews

“Had been having back pain. Finally after chiropractor and muscle relaxers and nothing helping I decided to get a new bed. Loved the idea of still having some bounce with the memory foam. My wife and I don’t want to get up in the morning!” – Gabriel P.

“Bed has been phenomenal. I have had issues with 3 herniated lumbar discs for 4 years now and I have been waking up feeling so much better than our old bed. Great price for the quality as well and I love promotion so the free pillows were an awesome value. Not to mention they are super comfy. Me and my wife sleep sooooooo much better now. The products are everything they say they are.” – Zach M.

“Ordered Ghost Bed after conducting some extensive research on cooling technology. After placing order, was told the mattress was in stock but the base was on back order. Mattress arrived quickly but waited a few weeks for the adjustable base. Once bed was assembled, I started sleeping like a baby. The quality of sleep I now received was well worth the wait. If you’re looking for a super comfortable mattress with some of the best cooling technology on the market…look no further.” – William S.
