Update on 12/04/2016, I would like to recommend another awesome mattress, Nectar sleep mattress(see review here), this is a 11″ high quality gel memory  foam mattress ,with 365 nights free trial, forever warranty, special 4 layers structure design. Click here to access official site and use code GBM100 to check out you can save extra $100, the queen size price before coupon is $795. Personnaly, I would suggest you pick up Nectar mattress if want  a comfortable, cool feeling, contouring memory foam mattress. The only shortage is that it lack of bouncy compared with latex top mattress, like Dromma bed we mentioned before, but you know, Nectar mattress is the world’s only mattress who provided 365 nights free trial and forever warranty, it’s really unbelievable,take a look before price rises(Like Ghostbed, the queen size used to sell $750, now $795).



We can see, the queen size of Ghostbed mattress only costs $795, which is the second cheapest in this list, Tuft&Needle is the winner, which only costs $600.

But Ghostbed is a 3 layers hybrid mattress(latex+memory foam+base foam), while Tuft&Needle is more simple, just 2 layers foam mattress(poly foam+base foam), the poly foam is their own foam which was designed by Tuft&Needle itself, generally speaking, it works as latex+memory foam. Latex to provide bounce, cool and memory foam to provide  pressure release and contouring around your body.

Tuft&Needle is also a good mattress, but some customers complain it’s a little firm, especially for side sleepers and big guy, while Ghostbed doesn’t has this problem, the max weight(single person) is 700 lbs(Purple can only support 300 lbs).

Personally,  I would treat Tuft&Needle  one of the best mattress for kids. For family use, I think it’s too firm, not as comfortable as memory foam mattress, and the motion transfer of this mattress doesn’t perform so good. The only highlight is its price and edge support.

Conclusion,  Ghostbed and Tuft&Needle are the winners.

Structure, design and feelings

Ghostbed and Casper have the same structure, both of them are latex layer+memory foam layer+ base layer, Ghostbed is 1.5″ layer of aerated latex foam+2″ layer of gel memory foam+7.5″ layer of high density support foam, totally 11 inches, which is the highest in this list(others are all 10 inches).

Casper is 1.5″ of latex foam+1.5″ of memory foam+7″ of support foam ,totally 10 inches.  1 inch less than Ghostbed, the overall sleeping experience are almost same, especially at first you lay on, but as time goes on, you can feel Ghostbed is more softer and comfortable, and because Casper doesn’t use Gel memory foam, so it’s a little hotter than Ghostbed, especially for heavy people who may sink into mattress.

Leesa is different from Ghostbed and Casper, it’s a totally memory foam mattress, it use 2″ Avena foam+2″ memory foam+ 6″ of support foam, the Avena foam can provide cooling, bounce, comfort, etc, which can provide very good sleeping experience as well, but you know, this price is a little higher than Ghostbed. If you sleep with your side often and want a medium feeling mattress, Leesa is your cake.

Purple is the most expensive mattress in this list, it uses 2″ of a hyper-elastic polymer smart-comfort grid+3.5″ of polyurethane foam+4″ of polyurethane foam, totally 9.5 inches. Attention, this mattress can support no more than 300 lbs. Personally, I don’t like Purple,same as Casper, it costs more than actual value. They use smart-comfort grid as top layer to delivery cooling sleeping experience, but you know, this is a bad design, it losses comfort as well as bouncy. We have many ways to delivery cool feeling.

Tuft&Needle is simple, 3.0″ layer of polyfoam+ 7.0″ of base support foam.Totally 10 inches as well.  It’s a little firm based on customer feedback, so only recommend to back sleepers and medium weight people, if you are side sleepers, this may not not your best choice.

Conclusion, Ghostbed and Leesa are the winners.

Warranty, free trial and customer feedback

On Warranty, In this list, only Ghosted has 20 years warranty, other are 10 years(this is industry standard). But the lifespan of most mattress are 8-10 years, and it may broken or you want to upgrade to a new more advanced models, so I think Ghostbed is the winner, but you know just for reference.

On sizes, most mattresses(Ghostbed,Leesa, Tuft&Needle) in the list provide 6 sizes for your pick up. Twin,Twin XL,Full,Queen,King and California King. Purple only provide 3 sizes, Twin XL,Queen and King. Maybe they will provide more, but not now..

On User review and ratings,  Ghostbed has the highest ratings on amazon, as high as 4.7/5, Leesa and Purple is the next, they are 4.5/5, Casper has the lowest ratings, just 4.3/5, but already not bad as well.

So the overall ratings, Ghostbed is the winner.  Leesa is the second.

If you are looking for best mattress with money and value, Ghostbed and Leesa seemed to be good choice,I don’t recommend to buy Casper, Purple and Tuft&Needle, Casper is a famous brand born in N.Y city, but it costs more than actual value, Purple is very expensive and doesn’t delivery the comfort he promised , T&N is too firm, even for the one like hard feeling, just like sleeping on the rock.

Other useful  mattress compare

Helix vs Casper vs Leesa , We already talked some about Leesa and Casper, here you can know more on Helix mattress, who is a comfort level customized(based on your height,weight, sex, behavior..) hybrid mattress.

Saatva vs Dromma bed vs Helix, Saatva is another famous online mattress brand, it claims have more than 95% positive review and ratings, but is it true? Is it as good as they claimed on official site?

Bear mattress VS Leesa VS Casper VS Loom&Leaf VS Purple, Bear mattress is not designed for family use, they are designed for athlete, to provide quick relax and recovery.

Besides Leesa and Ghostbed we recommend before, Dromma bed(12 years warranty, 200 nights free trial, 12 inches high,attractive price), Helix and Bear mattress are also in our top mattress list.

Where to buy

You can buy these 5 mattresses both from Amazon or official site, but if you decide to pickup Ghostbed or Leesa, I would suggest to pick up from official site, you can save extra $50 on Ghostbed with special coupon(auto apply when check out).  And save extra $75+$25 gift card(limited time only) on Leesa with special coupon(auto apply when check out).

Another advantage of buying from official site is you can enjoy longer free trial period.  Take Ghostbed for example, buying from official site you can enjoy 120 nights free trial, but if you pick up from Amazon, can only enjoy 30 nights free trial provided by amazon.
