About Nectar

Nectar Sleep sells a memory foam mattress made with surprisingly high-quality materials considering the low price point. The Nectar mattress comes compressed in a box, like many of its memory foam competitors, like Casper or Leesa, which makes for very easy delivery and set up.

The Nectar demonstrates very impressive contouring. Made with a Tencel cooling cover, 5 layers of premium memory foam, and multiple contouring gel layers, the mattress not only does a great job of hugging the body, it has great breathability. As a result, it offers both softness and support, and sleeps substantially cooler than a lot of memory foam beds out there.

Like most memory foam beds, it is very durable and should last you at least 7-8 years. At such a low price, the Nectar is extremely affordable for a memory foam bed, and you may decide that paying more for another bed-in-a-box alternative is not worth it.

Nectar has a great Side Sleeper Guide on their site which will help determine if Nectar is the right choice for you. And read on for our take on the Nectar mattress.

METRICS RATING DETAILS
Noise EXCELLENT The Nectar makes essentially no noise at all when you apply pressure or move around on it.
Durability GREAT The density of each foam layer of the Nectar really holds up over time. It is just as durable, if not more durable than your typical memory foam bed.
Huggability GREAT The multiple layers of foam in the Nectar make it very good at conforming to a sleeper’s body, which can be great for relieving pressure on various parts of the body and providing pain relief to those areas.
Motion Isolation GREAT As with most memory foams, Nectar does a great job of absorbing movement, which makes it very good at preventing your or your partner’s movements from disturbing one another.
Temperature GOOD Like pretty much all memory foam beds, Nectar retains heat/sleeps pretty hot. However, the tencel cover and gel layer make the Nectar more breathable, and therefore slightly cooler than many memory foam mattresses.
Edge Support GOOD The Nectar has slightly better edge support than many memory foams, especially at such a low price range, due to its dense foam.
Odor AVERAGE Many customers report significant off-gassing smells from the Nectar and most every memory foam bed, especially those that come vacuum sealed. The smell should fade away within a few days.
Sex AVERAGE Most memory foam beds may not have the bounce and responsiveness that some couples find essential for sex. The Nectar mattress has very little bounce.
Is Nectar the right mattress for me?

Judging the characteristics of a mattress is a subjective process – everyone has a different sleeping experience on different mattresses and their own interpretation of firmness, support, etc. Your own comfort and support are perhaps the most critical things you need to consider when it choosing the right mattress for you.

We think the Nectar mattress should provide an enjoyable sleep experience for people with any sleeping style. Whether you are a side, back, stomach or combination sleeper, your needs will likely be met by the Nectar. The Nectar is a medium to firm, supportive memory foam and so should be especially suited for sleepers who are on the heavier side and who like sleeping on their back.

You’ll enjoy Nector if…
You’re all about memory foam beds, but don’t want to sink into your mattress too much.
You want contouring and pressure relief to your back, neck and shoulders.
You sleep with a partner and don’t want to be disturbed by their movement, or disturb them with your movement.
You don’t mind the warmness of memory foam beds, but would like one on the cooler end of the spectrum.

Trial & Warranty

Nectar offers a 365-night trial. Their warranty is good for life, but it is only free for 10 years, after which the customer is responsible for a transportation cost of $50 each way.

Delivery

Nectar mattresses come compressed and vacuum sealed. They will be delivered free to the 48 mainland states, and fees apply to Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. You can also opt to pay $149.00 for white glove delivery, and for another $20.00 ($169.00 total), Nectar will remove your old mattress for you.

Bottom Line

Nectar is relatively low cost for a memory foam bed. It’s priced considerably lower than competitors like Tuft & Needle, Casper and Leesa, but is not at all lacking in quality materials and construction. If you are in search of a great mattress that is inexpensive, this is a great choice for you. With unmatched quality at this price, the Nectar is truly an amazing value, which is why it’s #2 on our list of memory foam beds! If you’d rather spring for a more luxurious memory foam mattress that costs a bit more, it doesn’t get any better than the Loom & Leaf.
