From the Original GhostBed, the brand also offers GhostBedLuxe, GhostBed Flex, and GhostBed 3D Matrix. Proudly made in the USA, we will focus on the GhostBed Flex hybrid mattress dedicated for any sleeping position.


GhostBed Flex is designed to be a hybrid mattress with a 13 inches tall profile. Its construction combines the comfort of foam layers that is reinforced by robust support of coils. So, let’s look a little closer at its materials starting from its quilted cover which feels supple, cool, and gently soothing. GhostBed Flex also has a layer of cooling fiber woven directly into the mattress cover which is 1 inch thin. The third layer of this mattress is 1-inch memory foam that is infused with gel to complete its luxurious cover. For the fourth material, GhostBed Flex has a second layer of memory foam that is also 1 inch thin. This layer is meant to enhance the pressure-relieving and supportive properties. Unlike regular mattress models, this hybrid mattress has a lot more to offer. So, GhostBed Flex also includes the GhostBounce layer underneath the memory foams. GhostBounce is an exclusive GhostBed layer of foam that is designed to be responsive like latex and contouring like memory foam. Since this is a hybrid mattress, we can’t forget about its main support system which includes individually wrapped and reinforced coils. This 8 inches tall coil unit helps create that weightless feeling that all sleepers dream of. Last but certainly not the least, this model has a high-density support layer that guarantees its durability and long-term benefits.


Now that you know the materials and layers inside the GhostBed Flex hybrid mattress, let’s find out how it feels. With a total of 7 layers, this hybrid mattress offers a quilted plush cover and a plush comfort from its memory foam. Its first layer of gel memory foam is enough to give a GhostHug feeling. At the same time, it has a solid support system that contains hundreds of individually encased coils. On a scale of 1 to 10; with 1 as the softest and 10 is the firmest, GhostBed Flex has a 6.0 feel. This means that it offers Medium feel with enough level of firmness and softness as a hybrid mattress.


The seven layers of foams and spring coils in GhostBed Flex allow it to create a comfortable and supportive sleep environment. These layers also work together to reduce motion transfer throughout the entire mattress. Its 1-inch gel memory foam is designed to alleviate your pain and aches due to pressure points. At the same time, it can support your spine well to keep its perfect alignment. If you want a responsive and body-contouring mattress, you can rely on its GhostBounce layer to handle these things. This layer prevents the development of permanent indentations in the surface. Thus, sleepers like you can experience sleeping on a bed that feels like cloud 9. Whether you share your bed or not, its SpiritedEdge support can also keep you from slipping off the bed while sleeping. Of course, its base layer is also there to provide every sleeper’s ideal support. Therefore, you can sleep peacefully anywhere around the bed without worrying too much about sinking too far or slipping off.

Temperature Regulation

Some of the best features in modern mattresses today are the cooling properties. No wonder the GhostBed Flex is built with multiple layers of temperature-regulating materials. First, it has a cooling cover that feels instantly cool to the touch which reinforces its luxurious feel. Second, it is made with a cooling fiber that promotes the immediate cool burst of airflow technology fiber. Third, it has 2 layers of memory foam that are both infused with cool gel. Fourth, even its individually encased spring coils are there not just for support but also to maximize the air circulation.

When it comes to offering multiple mattress models, Tempur-Pedic is ahead of the game. The brand has 4 main models that come in different comfort levels and features like the Tempur-Breeze Hybrid PRObreeze. So, we will review this model since it also received the “Best of What’s New” award in 2019.


Tempur-Breeze Hybrid PRObreeze is a bit thinner than GhostBed Flex hybrid mattress since it has a 12 inches profile only. This model is considered as the coolest mattress under Tempur-Pedic that is available in different sizes. Starting with its first layer, Tempur-Breeze Hybrid PRObreeze is encased in a SmartClimate Dual Cover System. This cover system is designed with a zip-off enclosure so you can remove it easily whenever you need to wash it. Its outer layer has a cool to the touch and soothing feel. Meanwhile, its inner layer has a super stretchable quality to guarantee its convenience. Next to this is the PureCool+ Phase Change Material which is an advanced material made by next-generation technology. This material is reinforced by another exclusive layer of foam that Tempur-Pedic designed for its mattresses only. This advanced material called the TEMPUR-CM+ material is redesigned by Tempur-Pedic to increase the efficiency of its cooling properties. For the fourth layer of Tempur-Breeze Hybrid PRObreeze, it has the Original TEMPUR Material which provides personalized comfort and support. Lastly, it contains a hybrid technology that includes more than 1,000 premium spring coils that are exclusively designed by Tempur-Pedic.


Tempur-Breeze Hybrid PRObreeze has a Medium feel just like the GhostBed Flex. Thus, it also offers that “just right” feel to a wide range of sleepers. Recommended for most side and back sleepers, this model provides solid support from spring coils and comfort from foams. Made from materials that were originally developed by NASA to absorb the g-force of astronauts while the shuttle launches, scientists perfected it. Designed to match the needs for better sleep, Tempur-Pedic was born and established in the market. Thus, rest assured that its coils will not be able to bother your sleep. At the same time, its layers of foams will not suck you too deep and be stuck into the mattress.


Since this Tempur-Breeze PRObreeze mattress is a hybrid model, you don’t have to worry about its amount of support. For side and back sleepers, the most important features that it offers include body-contouring, pressure-relief, back support, and balanced firmness. With all these features, Tempur-Breeze Hybrid PRObreeze provides sufficient support under your hips, shoulders for side sleepers. When it comes to back sleepers, you can enjoy a deep sleep knowing that the spine rests in its natural position. This mattress offers proper neck and spine support while its other parts contour to your body curves. Whether you like sleeping on your side, back, or both, it can help alleviate pressure points and isolate motion.

Temperature Regulation

Known as the coolest mattress model from Tempur-Pedic, this hybrid mattress prides itself on offering a 3° cooler sleeping environment. Perfect for hot sleepers, Tempur-Breeze is designed to manage the microclimate between your covers and the mattress. It has a faster and cooler temperature regulating the capacity to give you a more restful sleep. Specifically, it has a cool SmartClimate Dual Cover System and PureCool+ Phase Change Material which absorbs body heat. Meanwhile, itsTempur-CM+ Materials promotes maximum breathability and airflow.


These are two different mattresses though both have a hybrid construction. First, GhostBed has spring coils while Tempur-Pedic is made with different types of foams only. GhostBed Flex also consists of more layers of materials than Tempur-Breeze which also made it thicker. GhostBed is also more affordable since its cost ranges from $784 (Twin) to $1,369 (Cal King), and $1,875 (Split King). Meanwhile, Tempur-Breeze Hybrid PRObreeze costs $2,999 (Twin XL), to $4,199 (Cal King), and $5,998 (Split King and Split Cal King). If you want bigger and more flexible size options, Tempur-Pedic is a clear answer since it offers Split King which GhostBed lacks. If you want a longer warranty and night sleep trial period, GhostBed is a better choice. All GhostBed mattresses come with a 25-year warranty and up to 101-night sleep trial. On the other hand, Tempur-Pedic offers mattresses with a 10-year warranty and up to 90-night sleep trial period.


For your final decision, here are some points that you can consider:

How much is your budget? 

If you’re on a tight budget, GhostBed is the best and more practical option between these hybrid mattresses.

Do you want more size options?

Both brands offer Cal King and Split Cal King sizes. However, only Tempur-Pedic offers a Split King size which is quite rare in mattress companies.
