Comfort is very subjective, but we can give you some general guidelines.
Good support & stability
Overall, the mattress can offer firm support and excellent stability. 👌
It’s a good choice for anyone struggling with lower back pain, though those with shoulder pains or hip pains should opt for a softer model, like the Simba Hybrid.
Latex has low point elasticity, so the sleeper’s weight is spread out over a wide area across the top of the mattress.
In contrast, memory foam has high point elasticity and is compressed more directly. 🤗
This gives the mattress an overall feel of contouring and good pressure relief due to the memory foam, but without the excessive sinkage commonly associated with memory foam mattresses.
Latex is very responsive.
This makes the GhostBed much easier to move around on than some other foam models.
The material has a springy feel and regains shape quickly. 🌀
Comfort according to build & sleeping position
On the broader scale, the level of comfort you’ll experience on the GhostBed will very much depend on your build and your sleeping position. 🧐
The GhostBed mattress is a good fit for back sleepers of any build.
It offers excellent support & stability and will hold the body and spine well to allow for a comfortable night’s sleep. 😴
It’s also a good fit for lighter-weight stomach sleepers, who’ll receive enough support.
It may be too soft for average-weight or heavier-weight stomach sleepers, who need a little extra lift at the hips.
We wouldn’t recommend the GhostBed mattress to side sleepers.
Average-weight side sleepers may find some comfort, but, generally, the mattress is too firm for side sleepers.
They won’t be able to sink into the foams enough to allow for proper spinal alignment. 🦴
Misalignment of the spine is likely to cause severe neck, back, and shoulder pains.
Not suitable for heavier builds
At the same time, though, the mattress will be too soft for heavier-weight side sleepers.
They will sink through the comfort layers and land on the firmer base foams. 😕
This can create pressure points and lead to a build-up of tension.
In general, people of very large builds should try and stay away from all-foam mattresses.
Instead, stick to innerspring mattresses, which will be able to offer much better support.
