Whether a mattress feels firm or soft is relatively subjective. All mattresses should support body weight, promote healthy spinal alignment, and ensure comfortable and restful sleeping. Whether a mattress is fluffy and squishy (what mattress companies call soft or plush) or less so (what companies call firm) is purely defined based on personal preferences.

GhostBed Classic mattress is a medium-firm bed. The brand has designed it to feel this way by crafting a blend of firm support and comfort layers that should match most sleepers. Medium-firm beds are the most popular choice accommodating the majority of sleepers. As per industry standards, the ratings for Medium-firm beds are within a 5.5 or 6 on a firmness scale of 10. The GhostBed’s medium-firmness may not suit some sleepers, like heavy folks over 300 pounds. Heavier sleepers usually enjoy firmer beds to prevent sinking too deep into the bed.

Material & Construction

The 11-inch tall Ghostbed Classic combines the characteristics of latex and memory foam to provide a smooth sleeping experience. The mattress has the responsiveness of latex and body hug of the memory foam. Ultimately, the shopper relishes a balanced feel of support and comfort. GhostBed Classic, with dual cooling stages, has an aerated latex layer followed by gel-infused memory foam. It is one of the most excellent mattresses, giving you a restful and rejuvenating sleep.

Let’s dig into the details of the constitution of the mattress –

  • Plush Cover – The smooth, stretchable softcover is a blend of viscose and polyester, giving breathability and a cozy feel.
  • Layer 1:  This is an Aerated Latex (non-allergenic) Foam layer. The holes on the top latex (non-allergenic) layer of 1.5 inches constantly absorb heat from the body. The latex (non-allergenic) also supplies a pleasing, bouncy feel that makes bedroom activities quite enjoyable.
  • Layer2:  Gel Memory Foam is used to make the mattress. The proprietary foam of 2 inches has more giant cells than traditional memory foam. This layer aids in transporting heat away from the body, allowing for better cooling.
  • Layer 3:  This is the High-Density Base, the long-lasting, high-density foam core of 7.5 inches. It forms the base of your GhostBed. It’s firm enough for optimal spinal alignment.

Repositioning means that sleepers can change position quickly. Many people toss and frequently turn while sleeping.

It is not tough to move around on the mattress, as layers offer natural bounce and the denser support layer helps in responsiveness.

Comfort, Back Support, Pressure Relief


Evaluating whether a mattress provides good back support or spinal alignment and pressure relief is extremely important in choosing a bed. The key to good back support is maintaining proper spinal alignment while you sleep. The mattress should hold your spine in roughly the same position when standing. The result of a mattress pushing back the body with extreme force in a small area can be localized pain, soreness, loss of circulation, excessive tossing, and other problems. Such “pressure points” are the most significant concern for side sleepers since the smallest surface area takes up the whole body weight. It is less of a problem for back sleepers as the body weight is spread over a wider surface area, creating fewer pressure points. Pressure relief refers to a bed’s ability to alleviate tension at the pressure points concentrated in the body’s shoulders, hips, and lower back region.

Unfortunately, no mattress delivers spinal alignment and pressure relief capabilities across sleepers with different weights, body shapes, and sleep positions.

The high-density foam core of GhostBed Classic helps straighten the neck and spine and relieves hip and back discomfort with stiffness. The gel memory foam and aerated latex foam combine to transfer heat from the body to help sleep cooler. The layers work together to bounce, enhance contouring, and prevent sinking. The high-density base foam provides a strong foundation. Support and bounce combination is quite comfortable.

Generally, foam mattresses, particularly memory foam mattresses, tend to cradle the sleeper’s body, redistributing body weight. It helps relieve pains in the mattress areas that exert the most force.

  • Back Sleepers: People sleeping on their back tend to require more support — particularly around the hips, which may sink into softer mattresses and prevent proper spinal alignment. GhostBed Classic mattress being medium-firm provides reasonable upward thrust to the hip area to keep the spine aligned. Back sleepers also require minor pressure relief, as the position causes fewer pressure points than other sleep styles. In this respect also, GhostBed is ideal.
  • Side sleepersSide sleepers may have a challenge with Ghostbed. Since the top comfort layer is made entirely of foam, which is firm across the entire surface area, it may reflect pressure on the shoulder and not allow the body’s upper portion to sink in. It may create pressure points and reduce pressure relief.
  • Stomach sleepers: As the hips sink in, a good spinal alignment is tricky for stomach sleepers. Stability and support are essential for “stomach sleepers” not to cause back or hip pain. A medium-firm configuration prevents lightweight stomach sleepers from sinking in and creating a spinal curvature.
  • Heavy sleepersHeavy people can find the Ghostbed quite comfortable, particularly the back sleepers. They apply a lot of force and pressure, which GhostBed can withstand. In the case of heavy side sleepers and stomach sleepers, there may be some issues with the comfort and support for a relaxing sleep.

Cooling & Temperature Control


Ghostbed classic consists of latex and memory foam. These materials retain some heat released from the sleeper’s body at night. But the complete construction of the mattress with minute perforations on the latex layer for air circulation helps maintain a temperature neutral environment while sleeping.

The memory foam is also with cooling gel infusion for providing the cooling required at night. Overall the GhostBed is ideal for moderate hot sleepers.

Motion Isolation and Sharing a Bed


This category rates how well a mattress can prevent other sleepers in a bed from feeling when their partner rolls over, shifts, or changes positions.

The foam and latex layers seem to control movement, preventing it from spreading throughout the mattress.

Edge Support


The GhostBed lacks a reinforced perimeter. It is an indicator of no edge support. The high-density core support of the GhostBed, on the other hand, helps to stabilize the edge.

Recommendation based on sleeping style

No matter what position we sleep in, we all need to sleep well so our bodies can heal and rejuvenate. The fact is, we shrink by one to two inches during the day. The compaction of the intervertebral discs explains this phenomenon following a loss of liquid. The fluid restores the discs during the night. For this to work, sleeping in a good position is essential. What do we mean by a good position? There are three sleep postures: Side, back, and stomach sleepers, and then some who may prefer a combination of such postures. Therefore, all three have different needs and specific experiences regarding the comfort, support, and flexibility that the mattress should offer them.

Young or old, nobody is immune to back pain, whether chronic or temporary. It is essential to pay attention to where you put your head (and back).

Let’s get a clear idea about the Sleeping Style.

  • Side Sleepers: The majority of people sleep on the side. Most of the body’s weight rests on the shoulders, hips, and legs in this position. It is, therefore, important that the area of the body can sink properly into the mattress while the waist needs to be supported and the spine aligned. It avoids waking up with pain in the neck and back. The areas that support the neck and pelvis should be flexible and reduce pressure on these areas.The GhostBed Classic is reasonably comfortable for light side sleepers weighing less than 130 pounds. Its 6.5 firmness rating may be too soft for sleepers who don’t put too much weight. Heavyweight sleepers weighing more than 230 pounds and average-weight sleepers (those weighing between 130 and 230 pounds) find the GhostBed comfortable and satisfactory.
  • Back Sleepers: If you are more of a sleeper lying on your back, it is also crucial that your hips and shoulders sink far enough into the mattress to avoid painful arches.The GhostBed Classic is an excellent selection for lightweight back sleepers. It is considered reasonable by both ordinary and heavyweight sleepers. Back sleepers enjoy a medium-firm mattress, so the GhostBed Classic can is preferred.
  • Stomach Sleepers: In the case of sleeping on your stomach, a less flexible mattress with a good level of firmness is most suitable. It prevents your stomach from sinking in too far, which would reduce your body movements and lead to curvature. It leads to shoulder problems and tension in the neck. The GhostBed Classic is suitable for light sleepers. They might feel that the GhostBed is too firm for them. It is pretty helpful for those of average weight. It is also suitable for heavyweight sleepers.
