A lot of memory foam mattresses have significant off-gassing smells, especially those that come compressed in a box. The Loom & Leaf does not come compressed in a box, and any smell it does emit at first should dissipate within hours. It is also worth noting that you’re not breathing in anything that can be harmful to you with Loom & Leaf–its eco-friendly foams are sourced with a commitment to quality, safety and the environment.
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.
Loom & Leaf mattresses are relatively new, so it’s difficult to say exactly how long they will last. But the quality of the materials used in its construction suggests it will be as durable if not more durable than many of its memory foam competitors.
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.
Memory foam mattresses tend to sleep hot, but Loom & Leaf’s proprietary Spinal Zone Gel layer and breathable airflow channels keep you cooler than most memory foams, while providing optimal spinal support.
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.
Like all memory foam mattresses, the Loom & Leaf has very little if any bounce, which may or may not be what you and your partner enjoy.
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.
Loom & Leaf mattresses conform closely to sleeper’s bodies to align the spine, target pressure points, and alleviate pain symptoms. Two firmness levels are available to accommodate users with different preferences.
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.
Most memory foam beds have only decent edge support. Loom & Leaf is only slightly better than its competitors in this category.
The Nectar has slightly better edge support than many memory foams, especially at such a low price range, due to its dense foam.
The Loom & Leaf is pretty much completely silent when supporting transfer of movement.
The Nectar makes essentially no noise at all when you apply pressure or move around on it.
Loom & Leaf sleepers report virtually no motion transfer when a partner moves or gets in/out of bed.
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.
