You will notice that all mattresses are available in Twin through Split King, except for the GhostBed 3D Matrix, which is not manufactured in Twin, nor Full.
All mattresses have a Split King option, which I highly recommend if you are getting a GhostBed Adjustable Base. The King Adjustable Power Base only comes as a Split King, which allows both partners to control the adjusting and massage function of their side of the bed. When purchasing a Split King mattress, you will be receiving 2 Twin XL mattresses.
GhostBed offers incredible discounts, up to 30% OFF for the following groups of people: military, educators/students, government, and first responders. I love when they say that everyday is veterans day!

Detailed GhostBed Reviews Conclusion
We loved testing out the GhostBed mattresses and meeting Marc Werner, GhostBed Founder and CEO. If you have not yet watched our video, head over to the top of the article to learn more from Marc and his passion for mattresses and the industry.
All GhostBed mattresses are made with quality in mind. Marc scouts the entire planet to find the highest-quality materials to solve sleepers’ pain points. Yet, all of his mattresses are manufactured in the US. If you are purchasing a GhostBed mattress in Canada, note that your mattress will be manufactured in Canada instead!
GhostBed invests in R&D to develop proprietary technologies aiming at keeping sleepers cool at night and at relieving joint pains.
With several patents and a few more pending, you will find that every GhostBed product is fixing issues or industry pain points. The All-In-One Foundation ships in a box and replaces the bulky springboxes. The GhostBed Adjustable Base is so quiet, you barely hear it. The GhostSheets are some of the softest you will ever lay your body on and they won’t pop! I dare you to find a product that doesn’t solve a problem!
Who Is GhostBed?
GhostBed was founded by Marc Werner, a man with passion, a problem solver, and 5th generation inventor. You might recognize his name and associate it with the Werner ladders we’ve all come to own.
In 2001, after three neck surgeries and a life lived in constant pain, Marc realized that no mattress was helping him alleviate his pain and sleeping was of no relief. He decided to found Nature’s Sleep, his first mattress company.
An engineering mind at heart, he quickly changed the way the mattress industry operates. Mattress stores felt pushy and more frustrating than helpful. He wanted a pressure-free mattress shopping experience and launched the shop-from-home mattress model. GhostBed was born! Shopped online and delivered to your home, in a box.
Today, GhostBed is backed up by 35 years of mattress design experience and uses only top-quality and innovative materials, from aerated latex, to gel memory foam infused covers, the proprietary 3-D matrix, and the one-of-a-kind ship-in-a-box foundation.
When you purchase a GhostBed mattress, you benefit from industry-leading 20 to 25-year warranties. Marc stands behind each one of his products and reads every single review he receives. GhostBed is his pride and I am confident in saying that their customer service is one of the best in the mattress industry. Have an issue, or a question? I promise it will be answered and you will receive personalized attention and answers. I was at the headquarters when a customer called in, and I was more than impressed by the way the team handled it!

The GhostBed Mattress Review
The GhostBed Mattress is the original one and an all-foam mattress. It is the thinnest of the four mattresses, yet still 11 inches thick, a thick mattress for the price.
It is the only GhostBed mattress with actual latex in it. The 1.5-inch latex layer is aerated for extra cool comfort, and further supported by 2 inches of GhostBed’s proprietary gel memory foam. The 7.5 inches of high density foam add maximum support and the firmest sleeping surface at GhostBed.
You will love the GhostBed Mattress if you are a stomach or back sleeper and will enjoy the responsiveness of the mattress and its cool properties.
GhostBed Luxe Review
The GhostBed Luxe is the second all-foam mattress at GhostBed. Its 13 inches of foam make it a luxurious option for your bedroom.
The GhostBed Luxe offers the coolest sleep at GhostBed, thanks to its incredible technology, adjusting to your body temperature in real time. The quilted cover is infused with cooling gel and is cool to the touch. The first layer is 3 inches of gel memory foam, providing deep pressure relief in the shoulder and hip areas. The second layer offers 2 inches of proprietary GhostBounce, a man-made material resembling latex, with responsive bounce, allowing you to change positions without feeling stuck, with added contouring for comfort. Similar to the GhostBed Classic, 7.5 inches of high density foam provide support to the pressure points.
You will love the GhostBed Luxe if you are looking for a softer mattress than the GhostBed Classic. We found it ideal for side sleepers, but lighter-weight back sleepers enjoying soft and contouring mattresses can also find the GhostBed Luxe comfortable. This is an amazing mattress if you suffer from back or neck pain, sleep with a partner who moves a lot at night, and of course, the ideal mattress for the hot sleepers!
GhostBed Flex Review
The GhostBed Flex is a hybrid mattress, adding 8.5 inches of pocketed coils to the foam layers. Its 13 inches make it a luxurious option for your bedroom.
The GhostBed Flex combines soft, contouring foams similar to the GhostBed Luxe, with coils. Here again, you will find the quilted cooling cover, infused with 1 inch of cool gel memory foam and 1 inch of cooling fibers. The foam layers include 1 inch of gel memory foam, and a layer of GhostBounce for responsiveness and contouring. They bring incredible pressure point relief and that feeling of laying on a cloud. The individually-wrapped coils add a strong layer of support to your spine and pressure points. They are reinforced along the perimeter of the GhostBed Luxe for side-to-side sleeping and extra support when sitting on the side of the bed.
You will love the GhostBed Flex on all sleeping positions, making it an ideal bed for couples with different sleeping styles. We loved the low motion transfer, so partner movement is not a bother, and as with all GhostBed mattresses, you are in good hands if you are a hot sleeper!
GhostBed 3D Matrix Review
The GhostBed 3D Matrix is the other GhostBed hybrid mattress, and one of the most interesting mattresses I have ever laid on. With 12 inches of thickness, it sits right between the GhostBed Mattress and the GhostBed Luxe and Flex.
While I’m a big fan of firmer mattresses, the GhostBed 3D Matrix was my favorite of the GhostBed mattresses. Initially soft to sit on, it shined as soon as I full laid down on it. It evenly dispersed my body weight and provided me an unusual amount of support.
It includes 7 layers of patented technology and adds a layer of 3D gel polymer, that conducts extra heat away from your body and scientifically adjusts to your individual body shape and temperature. That gel polymer is able to move in three dimensions to deliver the right amount of pressure relief to every point in your body. Just like the GhostBed Flex, the reinforced coils allow for a larger sleeping surface than most beds and provide extra spinal support.
You will love the GhostBed 3D Matrix if you like floating on top of your mattress, instead of a deep sink. Moving in and out of position is easy, as the GhostBed 3D Matrix adjusts to your body in real time. You will also love the cooling technologies keeping you cool at night and the low motion transfer, making it ideal if sleeping with a partner. I recommend the GhostBed 3D Matrix to back and side sleepers. Stomach sleepers would need more support and would probably prefer the Classic GhostBed Mattress.
So Which GhostBed Mattress Is Best For Me?
While I can’t make this decision for you, I hope that the detailed reviews of each mattress above were helpful. Let’s look at a few more points to help with your decision-making process. And remember, Marc’s Mattress Quiz is always a good starting point to confirm that you are picking the right mattress!
If you have an idea of your firmness preference, this chart should help you identify a mattress that will work for you. The GhostBed Luxe and GhostBed 3D Matrix are soft mattresses with good spinal support. I ranked both a 5 out of 10 on the firmness scale, though the 3D Matrix was a little harder to rate due to its unique feel. But both are a little softer than your industry-average medium firmness.
The GhostBed Flex is right in the middle, and a good medium firm mattress, pretty much average if you think of the mattress firmness scale.
The firmest of all GhostBed mattresses is by far, the GhostBed Mattress. It is also the only one I don’t really recommend for side sleepers, who generally need a little softness to release the pressure in their hip and shoulder areas.
Your sleeping style is one of the most important aspects of your sleep, when it comes to choosing the right mattress.
Side-sleepers need mattresses with softer upper layers to allow more sink in the hip and shoulder areas – also called pressure points. Stomach-sleepers need a firmer sleeping surface to avoid arching of the lower back. Unlike side-sleepers, their hips require the most support since they are the heaviest part of the body. Lastly, back-sleepers are typically recommended slightly firmer mattresses than side-sleepers, however, their weight and personal preferences play a large role in their preference.
Use the table below as a reference to identify the best GhostBed mattress for your sleeping style:
|Sleeping Style||GhostBed Classic||GhostBed Luxe||GhostBed Flex||GhostBed 3D Matrix|
While all GhostBed mattresses were designed to keep you cool at night, if you are a hot sleeper, you will love the GhostBed Luxe. If you need a slightly firmer mattress, the GhostBed Flex will also be a great option and will keep you cool throughout the night!
If you are a cold sleeper – do not shy away from GhostBed! The mattress will not get you colder. Its patented technology adapts to your body’s needs in real time, keeping you at an ideal temperature for the best sleep.
The GhostBed Adjustable Base
I dare to call the GhostBed Adjustable Base the quietest adjustable base on the market! We have tried many adjustable beds and this one deserves the 1,100 5-star ratings it has received so far.
It comes with 3 preset positions: zero-gravity, TV/reading, and lounging.
One of my favorite functions is the massage mode, with 15 different (and very quiet) massages. Believe me when I tell you that going to bed will soon be your favorite activity!
The GhostBed Adjustable Base comes with all of the bells and whistles – under-bed LED lights and two USB ports, so you can now charge your phone and still use it in bed!
Another way that GhostBed solves pain points, is by shipping the GhostBed Adjustable Base in a box. It is pre-assembled and in a few easy steps, you will have it up and ready to sleep – no tools required.
Lastly, if you are ordering a King base, know that this base only comes as Split King. While I always recommend a Split King to allow each partner its own position and massage mode, do not worry if you own a King mattress – you can synchronize both sides of the bed and have it work as one. If you want to use the Split King GhostBed Adjustable Base as intended, simply get 2 Twin XL mattresses!
The GhostBed All-In-One Foundation
The All-In-One Foundation is an impressive innovation in the bedding industry! Goodbye bulky boxsprings… Goodbye metal-looking foundations… Hello, beautifully finished, ship-in-a-box, versatile GhostBed foundation!
GhostBed has invented a foundation that ships to your door, in a box the size of a large golf bag.
Made in all-metal, it holds up to 2,000 lbs and will accommodate any of your mattresses, playing the role of the bed foundation and bed frame. Whether you own a foam, latex, innerspring, or hybrid mattress, this GhostBed Foundation will hold nice and solid. If you are used to a store-bought wooden foundation, you can forget about any sort of squeaking… this foundation is ghost silent!
Customizable in height, you can choose to use the legs in the 3″ or 6″ position, for a maximum foundation height of 15 inches.
My favorite feature is the slip-on cover, which looks like a beautifully upholstered finish! All you have left to do, is attach your own headboard if you desire, and the GhostBed All-In-One Foundation comes preset with brackets that will fit nearly all standard headboards!
Most frequent questions and answers
