What experts liked
Gel memory foam layer transfers body heat away from sleepers.
- BestReviews
The GhostBed, built with cooling in mind, is topped with a layer of latex (which is typically more breathable than memory foam), followed by a gel-infused memory foam. However, given that latex tends to last longer, that the memory foam is a denser-than-usual 4 pounds, and that the mattress is exceptionally firm, the GhostBed may be worth a try for people who weigh more than 200 pounds.
- The New York Times
By offering a level of firmness that softens up during sleep, the GhostBed is able to meet the needs of a large number of sleepers. Not too mention the above average levels of support and cooling.
- Sleepopolis
In addition, the thickness level of the 11″ mattress offers the comfort and support necessary for a good night of sleep. The bed also features cooling technologies within the mattress that allows for optimum comfort levels as you sleep.
- Phatfusion
Offers a comfortable and cool sleep without pains and aches.
- The Sleep Matters
The Ghostbed queen mattress uses a mixed material construction for the cover, made of viscose and polyester to maximize flexibility and airflow. It is thin yet durable which is good for not feeling the material scrunching or bundling when you move or change sleeping positions.
- Bedding Pal
What experts didn't like
This is too soft for back sleepers with sciatica and other back problems.
- BestReviews
Found the mattress extraordinarily firm, perhaps too much so for most people.
- The New York Times
Can you flip a GhostBed? Unfortunately, no!
- Sleepopolis
Although the memory foam layer within the mattress does allow for some contouring, the latex layer prevents the amount of sinkage felt. As a result, the contouring is not as strong as it would be in a typical memory foam mattress.
- Phatfusion
May be too firm for some users.
- The Sleep Matters
