Ghostbed – Helping to Create a Greener Future:
Ghostbed is working to have one of the most economically friendly mattresses on the planet. One of the biggest ways they work towards this is by vacuum sealing their products. By doing this the products take up less space making more room on trucks to fit more packages. This helps cut down on the amount of gas used by delivery services. All the materials used in the products are also certified safe and do not contain any environmentally hazardous materials. Ghostbed is still looking for ways to make their products greener.
Ghostbed – Delivery:
The Ghostbed mattress comes shipped to your home completely for free. The mattress will be handled by FedEx and should arrive within 3-5 business days. In fact, the Ghostbed mattress will ship out within 24 hours after you place your order. You can expect to find a tracking email once your bed is shipped so you can know when to be home for the delivery.
As with most mattresses, the Ghostbed will come packaged in a compact cardboard box. The company does use vacuum sealing on their products which will make a little bit of difference in unpacking especially if it’s colder weather. The Ghostbed mattress will weigh around 78 pounds at the queen size.
The Ghostbed is vacuum sealed to help package it into a smaller cardboard box. Once you get your box to where it needs to go just unpack and carefully remove the plastic. You can expect your new mattress to completely expand within a day or two. After it’s expanded you should give your body a few days to weeks to get adjusted to your new bed.
Ghostbed – Off Gassing:
The Ghostbed mattress will have a little bit of off-gassing once it’s first unboxed. The site likens the smell to that of a new tennis ball and says it will dissipate quickly. Like with most things if you’re sensitive to smells you may want to give your new mattress a little bit more time to air out before use.
We certainly noticed this while unboxing the Ghostbed. Though it didn’t seem to linger for more than a day or two you certainly will notice a “new” mattress smell. We recommend giving the mattress about 12 to 24 hours to fully air out. We also would recommend initially leaving the room right after cutting the plastic away as well as opening a window to help it air out quicker.
Ghostbed – Comfort:
The Ghostbed mattress has a medium firm feel to it making it a great choice for most sleepers out there. The Ghostbed falls at a 6.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale. The mattress works well for all types of sleepers, including back sleepers who want support while sleeping. Stomach sleepers will also be pleased to know that they can sleep on the Ghostbed mattress without their back bowing during the night. For side sleepers, you will find that the bed still lets you sink into it while providing support where you need it most.
Ghostbed also does well for heavier sleepers. The Queen size Ghostbed mattress can support up to 750 pounds. This makes the Ghostbed the perfect choice for all shapes and sizes of sleepers. The mattress also keeps itself cool at night and the latex gives it a nice amount of bounce so that you can easily change positions when needed.
The beds also offer a nice amount of pressure relief thanks to the gel beads used in the Cooling Gel layer. Additionally, the mattress will align with your spine and conform to your body to give you deeper comfort. This bed even takes an extra step to ensure those with a latex allergy can use their bed. By separating you from the latex layer with the beds plush cover.
Our Ghostbed Comfort Experience:
The Ghostbed combines latex and memory foam to create a balanced universal feel. We found this to be a good compromise for comfort that we both preferred. The Not only was it not too firm or too soft it also was a more ideal combination of bounce and contour. The layering of the foams was great for relieving pressure all while not retaining too much heat. The latex also helped keep you from feeling stuck and easily changing sleeping positions throughout the night. All and all if you are looking for an all foam mattress that has just enough buoyancy and cocooning the Ghostbed will make for a good option.
Ghostbed – Motion Transfer:
Like most mattresses that use foam layers, the Ghostbed mattress isn’t going to let you feel many if any motion vibrations while sleeping on top of it. Most foams are absorbent that will keep most movements isolated from the area in which it happened. However, the top layer of latex is more responsive. This may add an initial feel of movement on the top, but should absorb in the other layers before traveling too far.
The Ghostbed is a pretty good solution for couples who are on different sleeping schedules. Or for parents with younger children or even pet parents with furry children. The mattress will allow your partner to sleep undisturbed when you have to get up earlier than them and vice versa. On top of that, you will hopefully have less tossing and turning with the more balanced comfort this mattress provides. Making motion transfer if more minimized.
Ghostbed – Sleeping Cool:
With all foam mattresses heat retention can be a major problem for some sleepers. Fortunately, those of us who are heat sensitive won’t have much to worry about with the Ghostbed. The Ghostbed uses some of the most innovative technology available to keep you from warming up during the night. This combined with the natural heat resistant latex layer make this mattress a wonderful choice if you are looking for a bed that stays more neutral during the night.

This is all helped by the fact that the Ghostbed has a supportive base that keeps you from sinking too far into the mattress. These layers combine together to make for a bed that keeps a perfectly neutral temperature while in use.
Ghostbed – Edge Support:
Many consumers don’t give a second thought to edge support when shopping for a new mattress. When we measure edge support we look at how long you can sit and sleep on the edge of the bed. This helps us determine how much of the bed can be used for sleeping. And how long you can use the edge of the bed for activities like tying your shoes or even watching tv. Beds with bad edge support can be a nightmare for sleepers who like to use every inch of their bed for sleeping.
Luckily, The Ghostbed does rather well for edge sleeping thanks to its medium firm feeling and supportive layers. The mattress is great no matter where you choose to sleep on it. It’s sturdy base layer combined with the supportive latex layer give the bed just what it needs to distribute your weight evenly. While the Ghostbed may not be the best choice to sit on and watch TV.
