Two of the most popular internet mattress retailers are GhostBed and Puffy There are a wide variety of foam and hybrid mattresses available from both companies, each with unique cooling and pressure relief capabilities.

Nature’s Sleep debuted GhostBed in 2015, making it the company’s first product. Using a combination of memory foam and latex, GhostBed’s flagship mattress provides a responsive and conforming sleep surface. The GhostBed Luxe, the GhostBed Flex, and the GhostBed 3D Matrix are the brand’s latest offerings. While the Luxe and Flex are foam models, the Flex and 3D Matrix are hybrids that provide more bounce.

In 2017, Puffy started selling mattresses. Designed to keep the mattress cool and relieve pressure spots, the Puffy Mattress combines gel-infused memory foam. Adding additional foam layers to the original Puffy mattress, the Puffy Lux adds even more ventilation to the mattress. The Lux and Royal mattresses are also available in hybrid form through Puffy.

Puffy and GhostBed share certain similarities, yet there are numerous important distinctions. If you want to limit down your options, we’ll examine the construction, performance, and pricing of each brand’s mattresses.

Overview Of GhostBed vs. Puffy Review

  • Feel:This mattress has a mixed, neutral foam feel, while Puffy’s mattress has a more neutral-foam feel that contains some memory foam, but it lacks latex.
  • Construction:The top layer of GhostBed is made of latex, whereas the top layer of Puffy is made of gel memory foam.
  • Price:Price-wise, they’re about the same between the two mattresses. Make sure to examine the current specials each firm is running to determine which one is the cheapest before making a purchase.

Sizing Options

If you don’t already have a bed frame, the size of your new mattress is an important issue. The standard mattress sizes are twin, full, queen, king, and California king. If you have a small area or a tight budget, you may prefer a full size mattress over a king or queen, while taller people may prefer a twin XL or a California king for extra leg room.

Ten inches is the average height of a mattress. Larger mattresses may necessitate fitted sheets with extra-deep pockets, while smaller mattresses may be unable to accommodate a full support and comfort section. The height of your bed frame should also be taken into consideration when deciding on the height of your mattress.

The weight of a mattress is also affected by the construction of the mattress. When it comes to weight, all-foam mattresses are often lighter than hybrid or latex mattresses. It’s possible that you’ll need to check into White Glove delivery services or enlist the assistance of a friend if your mattress is unusually hefty.

As more speciality layers and pocketed coil support cores are added, the mattresses become taller. It is possible that deep-pocket fitted sheets will be required for the GhostBed Flex, GhostBed Luxe and Puffy Royal.

Compared to the GhostBed’s 89-pound variant, the Puffy beds are substantially lighter, weighing between 48 and 94 pounds. White Glove delivery is available for an additional cost from GhostBed for clients who require assistance in putting the mattress together.

Construction and Materials Comparison

Knowing the materials used to build a mattress can give you a general notion of how it will feel. All-foam and hybrid mattresses are two of the most popular options.

Memory foam, polyfoam, or other pressure-relieving materials are layered atop a high-density polyfoam base in all-foam mattresses. Moving around on these mattresses isn’t a problem because of how quiet they are. A polyfoam base is replaced by an innerspring support core in hybrid mattresses. The coils provide a little bounce and greater room for air movement.

In addition to these fundamental categories, each mattress has extra characteristics depending on its design and materials.

GhostBed

  • a total of two layers of memory foam
  • Condensed polyfoam
  • Mattress with 8.5-inch pocketed coils and a high-density foam base

In order to relieve pressure points, the mattress’s memory foam conforms to the body and the pocketed coils are reinforced around the perimeter. Sleepers weighing 130 to 230 pounds will find adequate support on the mattress’ 13-inch height and medium firmness rating of (6).

GhostBed 3D Matrix

This is GhostBed’s most expensive hybrid model, with a 12-inch screen. A gel polymer layer is sandwiched between the cover and the body to help dissipate heat. The layers of comfort are made up of:

  • Memory foam laced with gel
  • Polyfoam sandwiched between two layers of transition polyfoam.
  • Pocketed coils of 8.5 inches in length

Mattress Performance Ratings

When shopping for a new bed, there are numerous personal considerations to keep in mind. You may narrow down your search for a mattress by focusing on the aspects that are most important to you. Durability, motion isolation, temperature regulation, sex appropriateness, pressure relief, edge support, and ease of movement are some of the factors that directly impact mattress performance.

Durability
If you’re looking for a mattress that lasts between 7 and 10 years, there are a few things to keep in mind. In general, mattresses with larger coil counts and denser foams are better at preventing early sagging and body indentations.

Motion Isolation
The ability of a mattress to absorb motion and keep it from upsetting a bed companion is referred to as “motion isolation.” Memory foam, for example, is particularly good at adhering to the shape of your body. Hybrid mattresses with pocketed coils can assist reduce motion transfer because the coils move independently of one another.

Sex
In general, beds with a little bounce are more conducive to sex. It is important for couples to be able to move around on a hybrid or innerspring mattress, rather than a close-fitting foam mattress. Foam mattresses, on the other hand, have the advantage of being almost noiseless when under load.

Temperature Neutrality
It’s critical for people who sleep hot to choose a mattress that can keep them cool at night. Mattresses like hybrids and innersprings allow for airflow, which helps keep the sleep surface at a comfortable temperature. All-foam mattresses, on the other hand, may cause the sleeper to overheat. Some mattress manufacturers use special foams and other cooling systems in an effort to avoid this issue.

Pressure Relief
Sleeping on a mattress that conforms to the shape of the body can assist alleviate pressure on the hips and shoulders. Memory foam and other contouring materials are commonly included in the comfort layers of most mattresses to provide additional support in these regions. It also helps relieve pressure by preventing it from building up owing to poor spinal alignment.

Off-gassing
During the manufacturing process, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are released into the air, resulting in a distinct scent associated with new mattresses. A few days is all it takes for the off-gassing smell to go away. Foam mattresses are the most likely to emit off-gassing. For those of you who are bothered by the smell, you may want to give the mattress a few days to air out in an open, well-ventilated space.

Ease of Movement
Some people find that mattresses with a high degree of contouring make it difficult to get out of bed in the morning. As a result, hybrid and latex beds tend to be preferred by combination sleepers due to their bouncy qualities. In addition to keeping sleepers on top of the mattress, all-foam mattresses with a firmer surface should provide enough mobility for most people.

Edge Support
With strengthened edges, mattresses prevent sinking along the perimeter of the bed. For people who frequently perch on the edge of their bed, this can be a helpful tool. For couples who share a smaller bed, a mattress with better edge support allows them to sleep near the mattress’s edge without feeling like they’re slipping off. People with mobility challenges who use the mattress’s edge to get in or out can benefit from edge support.

Sleep Position Ratings

GhostBed

The GhostBed has a different feel than many of its all-foam competitors because of its comfort layer of synthetic Dunlop latex. In comparison to memory foam, latex offers a more responsive feel and less sinkage into the body. Because of its medium firmness, the GhostBed is best suited for people who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds on their side, back, or stomach when sleeping.

In general, persons who are lighter should have no problem sleeping on the GhostBed, but the mattress may be excessively hard for heavier or larger people. It’s also important for side sleepers to have a softer mattress because it helps to relieve strain on the shoulders, lower back, and hips, all of which can be caused by a hard mattress. Those who weigh more than 230 pounds, on the other hand, may find the GhostBed overly soft, especially those who sleep on their backs or stomachs. However, our testing crew has given the mattress a mainly positive review across a wide range of weight and sleeping positions.

Puffy Mattress

With only one layer of memory foam, the Puffy Mattress creates a supportive, pressure-relieving nest for the sleeper. There is a moderate amount of sinkage and contouring under the heavier parts of the body, such as the midsection, with this mattress. Side sleepers who weigh up to 230 pounds and prefer extra cushioning in the shoulders and hips may benefit most from a softer memory foam type like the Puffy Mattress.

The Puffy Mattress is a good option for back and stomach sleepers under 130 pounds. However, heavier persons may sink considerably if they employ these positions. Neck and shoulder, lumbar, and hip discomfort may result as a result of this. There is an increased risk of discomfort for those who are over 230 lbs.
