Venus Williams Mattress Collection Review

Last Updated: July, 2022

Online mattress retailer GhostBed recently collaborated with tennis superstar Venus Williams for a sleep product line specially made to promote cooling, recovery, and rejuvenation through sleep. Venus Williams, who, aside from being a winner of four Olympic gold medals, five Wimbledon titles, and seven Grand Slam titles, has run V Starr, a full-service interior design business, for nearly 20 years. She also holds an Associate of Science in Fashion and Design from The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. She brings this experience to the collaboration, designing an initial collection of beds with more sleep furnishings and products to come.

Marc Werner, GhostBed founder and CEO, admits that from the first time he met Williams, they both realized they share the same entrepreneurial drive and strong family business values needed to deliver something unique for the sleep products industry. Venus, on the other hand, believes that an invigorating night's sleep has helped improve her performance, on and off the court. In fact, her love for sleep led to her family nicknaming her Rip Van Winkle. She's looking forward to launching this new mattress collection to educate sleepers on how resting on the right bed can totally transform quality of life.

Below, we'll discuss the Venus Williams mattresses' construction details, performance ratings, and prices, as well as their shipping, return, and warranty policies to help you determine whether these beds are the perfect fits for your needs.

Overall Thoughts: 

The Venus Williams Ace offers a level of coolness and comfort you’ll be hard-pressed to experience from other mattresses in the Venus Williams Collection. Its cooling technology consists of a cool-to-the-touch Venus Ghost Ice cover made from 25% recycled water bottles. This top cover draws heat away from your body and maintains a neutral temperature, giving you a comfortable and cool sleep surface. 

It also features a 2” Venus FIT gel foam layer which mimics the effects of heat therapy, but the far-infrared light won’t make you sleep hot. As your blood circulation improves, your body is in a better position to regulate its temperature, so you don’t have to worry about overheating. Plus, GhostBed mattress open-cell gel memory foam allows for excellent air circulation than traditional foam. The bed’s 9” high-density base foam supports the sleeper’s body atop the mattress, so the Venus Williams Ace will keep the night sweats at bay, give you pressure point relief, and maintain an ideal sleeping environment all night long.

What We Don't Like

Overall Thoughts: 

The Venus Williams Legend comes in a foam and hybrid option. The all-form version is a luxurious mattress specially engineered with athletes in mind. Its foam layers are carefully designed to offer an even balance of contouring and support for maximum sleep optimization. This mattress is also infused with infrared technology that helps promote physical recovery in your sleep.

The top foam layer contours closely to your body, ensuring deep pressure relief for individuals who might be experiencing joint aches or pain. The foam is infused with a proprietary technology (Venus FIT) that’s engineered to convert your body heat into infrared energy. This, in turn, helps promote blood circulation and muscle recovery. With a medium-firm feel, the Legend all-form bed has an above-average firmness level compared to the average all-foam mattress.

Back and side sleepers weighing up to 230lbs will experience a strong balance of support and contouring, though stomach sleepers might prefer a firmer bed.

What We Like

  • Excellent motion isolation appeals to co-sleepers and couples
  • Helps improve muscle recovery
  • Keeps you cool
  • Helps boost blood flow and circulation

What We Don't Like

  • Might not be the perfect fit for sleepers who prefer a plush memory foam feel

Overall Thoughts: 

The Venus Williams Legend Hybrid mattress is a well-rounded memory foam mattress that does two things remarkably well: it keeps your motion transfer across the sleep surface to a minimum and moves heat away from you. So, if you sleep with your partner, you can sleep undisturbed as they move around.

Plus, it offers a luxurious combination of contouring memory foam and responsive springs with a balanced medium-plush feel. That's why the Legend Hybrid is our top pick as the best supportive mattress for athletic couples.

Just like the Venus Williams Legend all-foam model, this 12" Hybrid version features three foam layers that alleviate common pressure points beneath your shoulders, hips, and legs irrespective of your sleeping position. First up is the Venus FIT gel memory foam layer infused with far infrared materials to help improve performance, recovery, blood flow, and general well-being.

The 1.5" soft transition foam offers additional pressure relief, distributing your body weight and minimizing the need to toss and turn. Lastly, the high-density base foam layer provides superior support, durability, and longevity. If you prefer beds with a slightly bouncy or responsive feel, the Venus Williams Legend Hybrid is your best choice.
