In the modern sleep market, there are many mattresses and bed platforms to choose from. Many of these mattresses are made to compete with each other to become the best option on the market. However, not all mattresses are created equal and sometimes they are not worth the money you pay.
Nature’s Sleep’s Ghostbed Natural Hybrid Mattress is made of organic material and offers sleepers a better night’s sleep. 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, the premium latex is made from 100% natural rubber and covered with organic cotton that is free from harmful chemicals. After reviewing many different types of mattresses, we can say that their mattresses are some of the most comfortable and supportive.
Let’s look at some key features.

Construction and Structure of GhostBed Natural Mattress
It is a 5-layer mattress with a thickness of 30 centimeters. At the very top is an organic cotton mattress cover, which is soft to the touch and contains no chemicals. This is followed by a thin layer of natural New Zealand organic wool that is fire retardant.
The third layer is 2 inches of natural Talalay latex which provides excellent support without making you feel like you are sinking into bed. This latex is known to bounce and provides good temperature regulation. If you are a warm sleeper and feel sweaty at night, you need this hybrid mattress.
Latex also provides good back support and spinal alignment. This is enhanced by an 8-inch mattress core made with individually wrapped steel coils. In addition, there is a 1-inch Dunlop latex layer that increases the strength and durability of the mattress, so that the mattress can last longer.
The mattress uses two types of latex (Dunlop and Talalay) certified by the GOL. The mattress cover uses GOTS and USDA certified organic cotton.
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 under the mattress. The mattress is of medium firmness and our overall firmness score is 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, with 10 being the strongest.
GhostBed’s offers a moderate level of support for different sleeping positions and offers more pressure relief than a memory foam mattress.
It scored exceptionally well on temperature regulation. As evidenced by the mattress construction, the organic cotton cover with extra layers of wool and latex helps dissipate body heat. The latex with its open cell structure is key.
In addition, the mattress core consists of spirals and a Dunlop layer that further improves ventilation and keeps the body cool.
Spine Alignment and Sleeping Positions
No mattress can be considered adequate if it does not provide adequate support for the spine, regardless of its other characteristics. Ghostbed Natural’s latex layer envelops the body and helps align the spine. Let’s take a look at the different sleeping positions and discuss our experience with GhostBed Natural.
The average sleeper will find the mattress with above average support. For those who are overweight or have heavy shoulders, the support may not be enough to relieve the pressure.
Of the two side sleepers of average build and weighing less than 280 pounds, one remembers turning or settling down at night. In particular, he did not complain of disturbed sleep. The other sleeper on his side did not experience any discomfort.
Our final conclusion is that the sleeping experience of side sleepers is normal.
The type of firmness it offers is suitable for back sleepers and is quite evident in our sleep tests. It gave good back support and if you are someone who has to deal with back problems you should buy this mattress.
People who weigh less than 140 pounds may find it a little softer, but it aligns the spine and supports the lower back.
Like back sleepers, the stomach sleeper needs a firm surface that doesn’t sag in the hip area as this can make it difficult to align the spine.
Stomach sleepers should be very careful when sleeping on a soft mattress that provides a deep hug. The 2-inch natural latex in Ghostbed Natural adapts to individual body shapes and provides adequate support without putting undue pressure on the spine.
Anyone who sleeps on their stomach is recommended to use this bed, no matter how heavy it is.
It can be a mattress for couples and you may like it because it has some springiness. Compared to a foam mattress, it is a better option for couples who have an active sex life. It’s a refreshing latex mattress that gives a good cuddle without sinking into the feel of the bed.
Motion isolation is average, which is typical for hybrid mattresses with internal springs at the core. If your partner or companion is sensitive to movement in bed, he or she may feel a small movement transfer.
For most sleepers, the movement transfer is average to moderate, but it may not pose 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 indispensable. With most foam mattresses, the edges are compressed, causing the balance to become unbalanced.
But the hybrid mattress with resistant coils is more resistant. This Ghostbed is no different and is exactly what we expected. Excellent edge support.
In general, we are satisfied with the quality of sleep in all sleeping positions and with the body weight. The sleep quality of side sleepers did not match other postures and we recommend side sleepers to pay attention to body type as if they were side sleepers.
The overweight person may want to find another place to sleep better.
Every night, millions of people around the world put their bodies on a mattress. Some of these mattresses are high-end luxury mattresses, while others are cheap and thin. However, not many people consider the materials that make up their mattresses or the processes involved in making them.
GhostBed is different from those mattresses, it is touted as much better for you than normal mattresses.
