GhostBed Review

The Company

The GhostBed was created by Marc Werner, after experiencing the need for a perfect mattress first hand as a result of 3 neck surgeries and painful sleep. Werner is part of 5 generations of innovation and excellence in the Werner company, that started out with a ladder company and quickly rose to the top. He applied that same philosophy to creating the ultimate mattress and in 2015 launched the direct to customer GhostBed after amassing years of mattress design expertise

What's unique

The GhostBed mattresses have 2 main focal points- ultimate balanced comfort, and the most advanced cooling. There are two mattress options to choose from on the website along with a whole heap of supplementary sleep products and accessories like bedding and pillows. A great feature that costumer can find on the GhostBed website is their bundle option, where you can customize a full sleep experience from A-Z at a discounted price.

The Mattress

Customers can choose between 2 different mattresses on the website- the GhostBed and the GhostBed Luxe

The GhostBed: This model is a high-tech gel memory foam whose 3 layers come out to 11 inches. The first layer is made of aerated latex foam that gives a plush feeling and does not retain body heat thanks to an advanced cooling technology. The middle layer is made of their proprietary gel memory foam. This is designed with larger cells to create a cooling effect when interacting with the body. Finally, there is a high density support base layer. At 7.5 inches, this layer is responsible for the brunt of the support. ***Firmness

The GhostBed Luxe: This 13-inch mattress is the only one with 2 stages of cooling within its 7-layer makeup. The first layer consists of the Ghost ice fabric, a unique material that has cooling properties in the actual yarn. Next comes a half-inch layer of cooling fiber. The third layer is an inch of gel memory foam quilted into the fabric giving a “GhostHug” feel. Fourth is the Ghost ice layer- a technology that captures heat thus providing a cool sleeping environment. Next is a layer of Gel memory foam after which comes the “Ghost Bounce Layer”-a proprietary material that has the responsiveness of latex and the contour of memory foam while remaining resilient. Finally, there is a high density support base layer
