We test responsiveness by lying on GhostBed and changing positions to see how quickly we can get comfortable. This mattress factor is most important to those of you to tend to toss and turn throughout the night. If this sounds like you, you’re in luck. We found that the GhostBed mattress did a darn good job at responding to our movements and keeping us comfortable.
We measure pressure relief using a handy dandy pressure map so there’s no going wrong. While lying on our backs, pressure was very minimal in the lower back area. But where it all went wrong was when we lay on our sides. As you can see in the video above, there are areas of red in the hips and the shoulders meaning there is the most pressure in these sensitive areas: a red flag for all of you side sleepers.
Though the pressure relief test could’ve gone better, the edge support test shined. We felt a solid support system as we sat on the edge of the bed to tie our shoes as well as lying there in multiple sleeping positions: great news for couples who sleep on complete opposite sides of the bed.
The GhostBed mattress is made with both naturally cool latex foam and a cooling gel memory foam layer, so you can keep the night sweats at bay. However, GhostBed will not be as cool as an innerspring mattress.
When placed on a strong foundation, the GhostBed mattress can support up to 750 lbs. For customers over 300 pounds, it’s recommended that you purchase the king-size GhostBed.
GhostBed works with any flat surface or a box spring/foundation in good condition. If you use a slatted platform the slats can be no longer than 4″ apart. You can also place you mattress on the floor.
GhostBed also offers an adjustable base that is compatible with this mattress.
The GhostBed is made with quality latex and foam materials designed for optimum support, responsiveness and cooling. Its layers include
|Twin||39” x 75” x 11”||58 lbs.||$545|
|Twin XL||38” x 80” x 11”||62 lbs.||$745|

The GhostBed comes compressed in a box and is 89 lbs. for a queen, so we recommend setting up with a partner. It took us around 2 minutes to finish unboxing and set up. There was an off-gassing odor, but it went away by the end of the day. Because of this, we recommend waiting until the smell is gone to put on sheets.

The GhostBed is designed to provide a cool sleeping surface. Each cover is stitched with breathable moisture wicking micron fabric. The aerated latex layer is designed to promote airflow that specifically lets out warmer air and circulates cooler air in.
While temperature depends a lot on the type of sleeper you are and the sheets/comforter you use on top of your mattress, the technology used to make the GhostBed is designed to keep you cool while you sleep
Like any bed-in-a-box mattress, it can take up to 30 days to adjust to a new mattress feel and fully break it in. The GhostBed in particular will take some time (a few hours to a full day) to expand to its full size, air out, and adjust to the temperature of your bedroom.
You can finance your GhostBed for as low as $67/month at 0% APR through Affirm. Simply select the “Prequalify Now” button at checkout and you will be guided through the financing process to see if you’re eligible.
Nope! The GhostBed is meant to be used on one side only.
