In the modern-day sleep market, there are plenty of mattresses and bed platforms to choose from. Many of these mattresses are made to compete with one another to become the best option in the market. However, not all mattresses are the same, and sometimes they are not worth the money that you are paying.
Ghostbed Natural hybrid mattress from Nature’s Sleep is made from organic material and offers sleepers a better night's rest. With the launch of Natural in 2021, GhostBed has made it a priority to work with the healthiest and most natural materials available on the market.
For example, their premium latex is made from 100% natural rubber and the cover with organic cotton that is free of any harmful chemicals. Having reviewed many different types of mattress, we can say that their mattresses are some of the most comfortable and supportive.
Let us look at some key features.
- 5-layered Sustainable Hybrid Mattress.
- Organic wool from New Zealand.
- Organic cotton.
- Talalay Latex.

Construction and Structure of GhostBed Natural Mattress
It is a 5-layered mattress with 12-inches of thickness. Right on the top is a mattress cover made with organic cotton, which is soft to the touch and chemical-free. It is followed by a thin layer of natural organic wool sourced from New Zealand that acts as a fire retardant.
The 3rd layer is a 2-inch of natural Talalay latex that provides excellent support without making you feel as if you are sinking into the bed. This latex is known to bouncy and provides good temperature regulation. If you are a hot sleeper and feel sweaty at night then this hybrid mattress you need.
The latex also provides good back support and spine alignment. This is further enhanced by an 8-inches mattress core made with individually wrapped steel coils. Additionally, there is a 1-inch layer of Dunlop latex that increases the mattress strength and durability, so the mattress can last longer.
The mattress uses two types of latex (Dunlop and Talalay) certified by the GOLs. The mattress cover uses organic cotton certified by GOTS and USDA.
Feel and Experience
The mattress is soft when you sleep on it. Thanks to the organic cotton cover and a layer of wool and latex beneath the mattress. The mattress is medium-firm and our overall firmness rating is 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, where 10 is the firmest.
GhostBed's offers a medium level of support to accommodate a variety of sleeping positions while providing more pressure relief than a memory foam mattress.
It scored exceptionally well on temperature regulation. As evident from the construction of the mattress, the organic cotton cover with added layers of wool and latex helps in dissipating body heat. Latex with its open-cell structure is the key.
Further, the core of the mattress comprises coils and a layer Dunlop that further enhances the ventilation and keeps your body cool.
Spine Alignment and Sleeping Positions
No mattress can be considered suitable if it does not provide proper spinal support, regardless of its other characteristics. Ghostbed Natural’s latex layer cradles the body and helps in spinal alignment. Let's look at the various sleeping positions and discuss our experience with GhostBed Natural.
The average weight sleeper will find the mattress with above-average support. For heavy people or those with heavy shoulders, the support may not be enough to relieve pressure.
Out of the two side sleepers with an average build and weight less than 280lbs, one did remember tossing or adjusting himself in the night. It is noteworthy that he did not complain about sleeping disturbed. The other side sleeper did not experience any discomfort.
Our final conclusion is that side sleepers' sleeping experience is average.
The kind of firmness it provides suits the back sleepers and it is quite evident in our sleeping tests. It provided good back support and if you are someone who deals with back issues, you should get this mattress.
People who weigh under 140lbs may find it a little softer but it does align your spine and supports the lumbar region.
Similar to back sleepers, the stomach sleeper needs a firm surface that does not dip from the hip region as it may hinder spinal alignment.
Stomach sleepers have to be very careful sleeping on a soft mattress that provides a deep hug. The 2-inch natural latex in Ghostbed Natural conforms to individual body curves and provides adequate support without putting excessive pressure on the spine.
Any stomach sleeper is recommended to use this bed, no matter how heavy they are.
It can be a mattress for couples and maybe liked as it has some bounce. As compared to an all-foam mattress, it is a better option for couples who have an active sex life. It is a cooling mattress and latex gives an adequate hug without sinking into the bed feel.
Motion transfer can be an issue for some couples discussed in the next section.
|Under 140lbs||150-240lbs||Above 240lbs|
The motion isolation is average, which is typical of hybrid mattresses that feature innerspring at their core. If your partner or co-sleeper is sensitive to movement in the bed then they may feel minor motion transfer.
For the majority of sleepers, motion transfer is average to moderate, but may not cause much of a problem.
Edge support is excellent. For those who like to sit on the edge, or sleep on the edge, a mattress with good edge support is essential. In most foam mattresses, the edges compress, which throws your balance off.
But hybrid mattress with sturdy coils is more resilient. This Ghostbed is no different and it is exactly what we expected. Great at edge support.

We are overall satisfied with the quality of sleep across all sleeping positions and body weight. The sleep quality for side sleepers did not match with other positions and we urge side sleepers to pay attention to the body type as a side sleeper.
The overweight person may want to look else for better sleep.
Every night, millions of people all over the world lay their bodies on a mattress. Some of these mattresses are top-of-the-line, high-end luxury mattresses, while others are cheap and flimsy. However, not many people consider the materials that make up their mattresses or the processes that go into making them.
The GhostBed is different from those mattresses, it's touted as being much better for you than regular mattresses.
