Both companies offer the standard six size choices in mattresses including Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King and Cal-King. Brooklyn Bedding adds to choices Full XL, Queen short and a Split Cal-King. In addition, Brooklyn Bedding also gives a choice of firmness at the same price point for each size, although as noted by Sleepopolis, “The vast majority of sleepers, about 80% in fact, prefer a medium firmness level. So unless you know for sure you like very soft or very firm, chances are you probably will be most happy with the medium firmness level.” Pricing is similar but when it comes to getting more quality workmanship for your money GhostBed delivers with its 11-inch high mattress versus Brooklyn Bedding’s ordinary 10-inch high bed. Both companies offer free shipping.
Once again GhostBed gets high grades for its 11-inch high mattress over Brooklyn Beddings common 10-inch high mattress. Manufactured by parent company of Nature’s Sleep, known for their years of quality constructing and designing, GhostBed’s design showcases experience as noted by Mattress Clarity.
“Experience showed, in that the mattress felt very well made and the transition between the layers was seamless.”
The seamless experience is achieved with how GhostBed’s three unique layers are blended together to make up the mattress. The 1.5-inch top layer is made of aerated latex foam, specifically designed to be naturally responsive, plush and to provide cooling. A 2-inch middle layer is made of gel memory foam designed with a proprietary formula of larger cells to make it more reactive to the body for cooler nights. The 7.5-inch foundation layer is constructed from high density foam to allow for increased support and longevity.
Not much hoopla is given to Brooklyn Bedding construction. Simply, it is made up of 2-inches of Talalay latex, 2-inches of Dunlop latex and 6-inches of high density polyfoam. It is stated by Mattress Clarity, “The cover is a quilted cotton polyester blend. It is quilted with 3/4-inch tick of polyfoam, giving it a somewhat plush feel on top.”
Important to note is that the Brooklyn Bedding mattress cover can only be spot cleaned while the GhostBed is a winner with their mattress cover that can be zipped off for machine washing.
They may be close but again GhostBed has the lead in comfort. Their 11-inch mattress thickness provides the extra comfort and support to place it on top. Mattress Clarity states GhostBed’s ability to provide comfort for all sleeping positions, “The GhostBed offers good support and comfort in any sleeping position, whether you’re on your side, stomach, or back.” Also noted is that this mattress provides comfort without feeling like you are stuck in, “The GhostBed bounces back fairly quickly (for a foam mattress) due to the top layer of latex. The extra spring is enough to make sure you avoid that ‘stuck’ feeling that is common in memory foam mattresses.” Mattress Clarity also comments that the top latex layer works in its aim for cool sleeping.
Brooklyn Bedding was given points for those who do not like sleeping hot, as well as for those who enjoy amorous activities with its springy latex. Note by Mattress Clarity, “The mattress has some serious bounce, so beware for someone looking for a traditional memory foam feel.”
GhostBed continues to standout above other companies for its GhostBed Mattress 20-year warranty. GhostBed promises to fully replace the mattress if found to have a defect in the first ten years of ownership to the original owner. For years 11 through 20 of ownership GhostBed provides additional coverage and protection, stating that they will either repair a defected mattress or replace it at a prorated cost.
With a 10-year warranty Brooklyn Bedding is lagging behind. Noted on website, “Warranty begins the date you purchase the mattress and cannot be transferred. If a defect occurs during the warranty period, Brooklyn Bedding will repair or replace the defective product and in a reasonable amount of time.”
GhostBed has met its match when it comes to having a great trial period. GhostBed’s 101-day sleep trial has always been a leader. Brooklyn Bedding offers a whopping 120-night trial period. Both ask to try the mattresses for at least 30 days. GhostBed suggests to take 60 nights before making a final decision. Both companies will pick up mattress and refund 100-percent for those wishing to return within the trial period.* Some of the reviewers may have affiliate relationships with GhostBed and receive a commission, similar with other mattress suppliers and consistent with industry practices.
