Bed Buddy Report |Findings |
Ghostbed offers two mattresses – a mixed foam mattress containing a layer of latex and a luxury memory foam mattress. The Ghostbed Original is a single firmness, three-layer mattress with both latex and memory foam in the comfort layers that stands 11″ tall and has a polyfoam support core.
My review of the Ghostbed mattresses found that motion transfer, conforming and temperature neutrality are major benefits. I also found that the higher density foams used make these mattresses great for all sleeper weights and particularly durable.
What Type of Sleeper Is Best Suited for a Ghostbed Mattress?
Based on my customer feedback, the Ghostbed Mattresses have received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a mattress. As you can see, the Ghostbed is a solid choice for sleepers of all sizes, especially those on a budget.
For more information on sleeping positions please see my guides for side, back, stomach and combination sleepers.
My testing process found that Ghostbed mattresses should also be great for you if…
- You’re looking for an affordable mixed foam mattress.
- You want a bed that contains some latex without the high price tag
- You are a back or a stomach sleeper
- You sleep with a partner and are easily disturbed.
