The Best/Worst Things
- Edge Support: GhostBed offers awesome edge support for people who sleep on the edge of the bed, or simply like to lounge there.
- Responsiveness: If you toss and turn at night you need a bed that can keep up. Luckily, Ghostbed Natural scored well in responsiveness, making it a good choice for combination sleepers.
- Cooling: The original GhostBed is the reason this mattress brand has a reputation for keeping people cool at night. The gel foam and latex combination allows you to stay cool all night.
- Durability: The premium, high-quality layers in GhostBed allow it to last for years. So much, that your new bed even comes with a 20-year warranty.
- Motion Isolation: GhostBed Natural wasn’t the best in motion Isolation in our tests, meaning it may not be the mattress for couples.
- Pressure Relief: In our lab test, GhostBed Natural did not offer the best pressure point relief and spinal alignment combination, meaning this may not be the best pick for side sleepers.
We test responsiveness by 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 Natural 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.
Let’s look inside the GhostBed Natural mattress and see who it performs best for.
How Firm is GhostBed Natural?
GhostBed Natural is about a 6.5/10 on the firmness scale, making its firmness level a medium-firm to firm. This works for most types of sleepers.
What Sleeping Position Does It Work For?
Ghostbed Natural’s firmness level make it a good mattress for back sleepers and good stomach sleeper mattress, while combination sleepers will rest well due to its responsiveness. However, because GhostBed Natural isn’t the best for spinal alignment, this may not be a side sleeper’s first choice. For better options, head over to our best mattress for side sleepers page.
Does It Sleep Hot?
The GhostBed Natural 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 Natural will not be as cool as an innerspring mattress.
How Much Weight Does It Support?
When placed on a strong foundation, the GhostBed Natural mattress can support up to 750 lbs. For customers over 300 pounds, it’s recommended that you purchase the king-size GhostBed.
What Foundations or Bed Frames Are Compatible?
GhostBed Natural 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 Natural is made with quality latex and foam materials designed for optimum support, responsiveness and cooling. Its layers include:
- Plush Cover: This soft, breathable fabric is a viscose and polyester blend. It wicks away body heat and moisture.
- Top Layer: This aerated synthetic rubber latex comfort layer absorbs pressure.
- Middle Layer: Gel memory foam offers pressure-relief that is comfortable and cooling.
- Bottom Layer: High-density support foam makes GhostBed durable.

The GhostBed Natural 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.

See how the GhostBed mattress compares to other mattresses:
Does the GhostBed sleep hot?
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
Does the GhostBed mattress have a break-in period?
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.
Can I finance my GhostBed mattress?
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.
Will I need to flip my GhostBed mattress?
