In this article I’ve got a mattress review for you. I’m talking all about the GhostBed Flex mattress.
GhostBed makes a number of different mattresses and they’ve been around for a while. But this is basically their upgraded hybrid bed.
If you have questions about the GhostBed Flex mattress and you want to learn all about it, this is the right article for you.
In this article I’ll talk about the policies that this bed will come with if you decide to order it. I’ll touch on feel, firmness, pricing, some things for couples, and at the very end I’ll have a final verdict for you, so you can answer all the main questions that you may have at the end of the article.

When you order online it’s going to have the following policies starting with completely free shipping.
Once the GhostBed Flex is in your possession you get a 101 night sleep trial. That’s basically your chance to try the bed out in your own home and start to formulate your opinion and decide whether or not you want to keep the bed.
If you don’t, within that trial period you can get completely free returns with GhostBed. And this bed is backed by a 25 year warranty if you do decide to keep it.
GhostBed also offers white glove delivery. You will have to pay up for that but basically that’s a service where they’ll deliver the bed to your house full size and set it up for you.
They may even haul away your old bed but this service is only in certain areas and you’re gonna have to pay up for it.
GhostBed is also made in the United States so if you’re a fan of American-made products, this might be a bed for you.
Now let’s get into the main bulk of this review and talk about construction what is this bed made of.
This is a 13 inch mattress and at the bottom you have a thin layer of support foam. Then the main support layer, which is eight and a half inch pocketed coils.
Then you have a transition layer of foam. Another transition layer which is memory foam and topping the mattress is a special cover and GhostBed claims that it has some cooling features but I’ll get into that a little bit more later in the article.
Since this bed does use pocketed coils, it’ll probably work great for all body types. In general I usually say that people above the 220 pound range should go for a bed with pocketed coils just because it provides more long-term support and durability.
After testing over 100 beds I’ve also come to notice that beds with pocketed coils sometimes have better airflow than their all-foam counterparts and they’re really supportive and responsive.
This construction all adds up to give the bed more of a neutral foam feel with a hint of memory foam.
Since the bed does use a couple layers of memory foam, you will slightly sink into the bed but because of those transition layers and those pocketed coils, you’ll definitely be well supported on this mattress.
In general I pretty much think that those foams and those coils will balance out the bed, so instead of having a really strict memory foam feel, it definitely has more of a neutral foam feel with that hint of memory foam.
If you aren’t the biggest fan of memory foam, you’ll probably feel this bed to be quite nice and if you do like memory foam, having just that little bit in there might also be up your alley.
Now in terms of firmness this bed is right at a medium on the firmness scale, meaning it will work for all sleeper types, back, stomach, side and combination.
Pretty much all of the GhostBeds are around a medium firmness on the scale. So if you know that you want a GhostBed, the big question becomes what kind of feel you want.
GhostBed Luxe has more of a memory foam feel. the Original GhostBed has kind of a mixed foam feel, GhostBed 3D Matrix has a mixed foam feel that’s pretty unique. They even released GhostBed Natural last year and that has more of a latex foam feel.
Let’s touch on a couple things that couples might want to consider if they happen to be sharing their mattress.
Edge support refers to how sturdy the edges of the mattress will be if you like to sleep really close to those at night. Motion isolation is how a bed transfers cross mattress movement.
And I’m sure you can guess what temperature regulation is, but that’s basically whether your bed sleeps hot or cold.
In terms of edge support, the GhostBed Flex does a really good job because it has some reinforced coils on the edge of the mattress.
In terms of motion isolation it does a good job, not quite as good as the all-foam GhostBed, but it should be fine for the vast majority of sleepers out there.
In terms of temperature regulation, the GhostBed Flex does have that special cooling cover, but it’s not an active cooling bed, even though it is pretty close.
If you do want a bed that does sleep pretty cold I might steer you towards the GhostBed Luxe mattress. It’s commonly one of the beds that’s on my best cooling picks of the year.
Now we’ve come to the part of the article where I will discuss price but, before I do, I just want to say that brands like GhostBed do like to change their pricing and promotions all the time.
So these prices are as of when I’m doing this article.
But for a queen size GhostBed Flex mattress, you’re looking to pay around the $2200 mark before any discounts.
But GhostBed does like to run discounts on their mattresses and sometimes they’ll even bundle in a free gift like sheets or a pillow with your purchase.
So as of when I’m doing this article you can get a queen size for around the $1500 range.
That’s basically all I have for you about the GhostBed Flex mattress.
You’re probably asking yourself, I learned a lot, but I want a final verdict, let’s wrap this up. Here you go.
I couldn’t see you going wrong with the GhostBed Flex mattress if you’re looking for a supportive hybrid mattress with a neutral foam feel that has a hint of memory foam in there.
You want something that’s great for all sleeper types and all body types and you’re looking for something around a medium firmness, that’s also a great option for couples.
That was the GhostBed Flex mattress review.
