Our Nectar mattress review highlights this new luxury foam mattress that recently hit the market. Nectar Sleep set out to create the most comfortable mattress possible, using the best materials, at the best possible price to the consumer.
The company offers an industry-leading 365 night sleep trial, a “forever warranty”, and will even send out a new cover for the mattress if you need a new one.
Nectar Sleep is really going over and above to prove to customers that their mattress will not only last, but be the last mattress you purchase!
Construction and Materials
The nectar mattress is a 11″ all foam mattress made up of 4 layers of various foams.
- 1″ Top Comfort Layer – This layer is 1″ of quilted foam that is sewn into the cover that is designed to improve airflow and and relieve pressure points, while providing softness and a luxurious feel to the top of the mattress.
- 1″ Support Layer – This layer is 1″ of 4lb patented Lush Foam semi-open fast-recovery gel memory foam, which provides primary support and aids in cooling and comfort.
- 3″ Transition Layer – This layer is 3″ of 3lb medical grade cooling gel embedded foam that acts as a transitional support layer between the upper and lower layers and also aids in cooling the mattress.
- 6″ Foundation Layer – This layer is 6″ of high density foam that acts as the foundation and provides deep compression support.
The cover of the Nectar mattress mattress is made up of soft, long staple cotton that includes Tencel – a fabric more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk, and cooler than linen.
The cover is naturally bed bug resistant and actually circulates air throughout the upper layer of the mattress to improve airflow and circulation.
The cover and exterior of the Nectar mattress is extremely soft and luxurious feeling, something we normally see only in mattresses costing 3-4x the cost of the Nectar.
This cover can be replaced by the company if you need a fresh cover after sleeping on the mattress over time, at no charge – which is something we have never heard a mattress company doing.
Firmness & Support
The Nectar mattress only comes in one firmness option which we rate it at a 6-7 out of 10 (10 being the firmest).
The Nectar mattress feels like more of medium – firm mattress, in that the top comfort layer provides a soft, luxurious feel with the underlying support layers providing firmer support below.
With many mattresses, since I am a heavier sleeper, I tend to press through the top comfort layers and feel more of the support layers which are often harder and not as comfortable.
This isn’t the case with the Nectar, as I don’t immediately compress through the comfort layers and come to rest on base support layers.
Both Kaye and myself felt the Nectar was on the firmer side of the spectrum, but quite comfortable due to the upper comfort layers and the luxurious cover materials.
The Nectar mattress provides a good degree of support for a heavier sleeper like myself from the denser foam foundation layers combined with the top comfort layers.
We felt the Nectar mattress does a good job of providing support in all sleeping positions for both Kaye and myself sleeping as a couple.
As we are primarily side sleepers, we like mattresses that provide enough give in the top comfort layer to support our shoulders and hips, while also having the firmness if we switch to our stomach or back.
The Nectar definitely provides the support we need for back and stomach sleeping, and surprisingly also provided a comfortable, supportive side sleeping environment which I was initially surprised that it would.
I usually prefer much softer top layers in mattresses, often choosing softer memory foam layers that hug and mold to my hips and shoulders, but the luxurious comfort layer in the Nectar does a really great job at giving that same feeling.
