Nectar Mattress Review

Nectar Sleep launched in 2017 and has grown into one of the most popular brands on the mattress scene. While the company features an adjustable frame and foundation, its flagship mattress remains its crowning jewel, combining thick layers of memory foam with a breathable base for deep pressure relief.

But just how comfortable is the bed actually? I won’t know until I put it to the test, sussing out its firmness, feel, motion transfer, and sinkage to determine if it might just be the mattress of your dreams.

BRAND SNAPSHOT

Since its founding, Nectar Sleep has employed a clever strategy of cheeky marketing and focused product development to evolve into one of the biggest competitors in the online bed-in-a-box market.

Considering its popularity, the brand is often compared to Purple and Casper, two giants in the Direct-to-Consumer mattress world. Though all three beds have considerably different feels (which I’ll dissect in full later on in this review), they do benefit from a similar amount of name recognition and notoriety on sites likes ours and Reddit.

It’s worth noting that at $700 for a Queen, the Nectar is less expensive than either the Casper or the Purple, both of which come in at about $1,000.

CONSTRUCTION

But let’s turn our attention back to the Nectar bed review. As I mentioned above, this is an all-foam bed made up of three distinct layers that stack up to an 11” profile. The most notable aspect of the Nectar’s construction is its whopping 4” of memory foam up top, which results in a considerable amount of body contouring and sinkage.

To see how all this comes together, let’s dive into the mattress!

Nectar Mattress Layers

Cover – The cover is comprised of both cotton and Tencel, an eco-friendly material known for its softness and breathability. Additionally, there’s an inch of gel memory foam quilted into the cover, which provides the sleeper with some immediate comfort. The combination of the Tencel fibers and gel infusion make for an ultra-cool layer that’ll help regulate temperatures throughout the night.

Nectar Update Cover

Comfort Layer – Directly below the cover, you’ll encounter 3” of memory foam. This material has an incredibly slow response to pressure, allowing the sleeper to really sink in for some satisfying pressure relief. As the foam contours to the curves of your body, you’re likely to feel as though you’re sleeping more “in” the bed than “on top” of it, which could be a pleasant feel for side sleepers in need of cushiony support at the shoulders and hips.

Transition Layer – Up next you’ll find a transitional layer of memory foam, which has a slightly quicker response to pressure than the foams above it. This section is meant to ease the sleeper into the firmer base below, helping to extend the contouring of the comfort layer even deeper into the mattress.

Foundation Layer – Rounding out the construction we’ve got 6” of high-density poly foam. This section gives the bed its stability and shape, providing a firm foundation upon which the softer foams can react.

FIRMNESS

After taking a look at the construction of the Nectar, let’s chat about the firmness and feel. I started off by applying some light hand pressure to the mattress and found that I was immediately interacting with the thick layers of memory foam up top. I could feel myself sinking into the Nectar, with the gentle foams contouring around my fingers. Pushing in further, I experienced even deeper sinkage into the bed.

Nectar Update Hand Press

Since folks of different body types and sizes are going to feel firmness differently, I decided to bring in three other testers to check out the Nectar Sleep mattress. We all took a turn lying on the mattress, gave it a personal rating, and then compiled them on the graph below.

While feel is always going to be a personal thing, our responses should provide you with a good idea of the firmness range you can expect from the bed.

Though there was a bit discrepancy with our responses, we did end on an average firmness rating of 6.5, which syncs up perfectly with the industry standard for medium firmness.

I personally gave the Nectar a 6 as I found its thick memory foam layers produced a gentle, pressure-relieving vibe. Regardless of the position I stretched out in, I could feel the material contouring to the curves of my body, resulting in some pretty intense sinkage. While this translated to a softer rating for me, some sleepers may find memory foam to produce a firmer feel as their bodies gradually acclimate to its morphing shape.

Nectar Update Contour

PRESSURE MAP

Another important component of a new bed’s feel is pressure, or more specifically where pressure points are likely to form while lying on top of it.

To help you visualize where these tension spots might crop up, I placed a pressure map on top of the mattress and lied on my back, side, and stomach. You can see the results on the image below where pressure is represented from blue (low pressure) to red (high pressure).

Back – Lying on my back, I felt some great pressure relief as the soft memory foam top layers contoured to my body and filled in the space at my lumbar region. While you may find memory foam to have an initially firm feel, once you give your body a few minutes to sink through it, you’ll find that it’s actually quite giving. A trade off for this satisfying pressure relief is that I did find it a bit difficult to move around and change positions.

Edge Support – Testing out the edge support on this bed, I did detect some compression through the soft foam top layers. However, the high-density poly foam base did a good job of supporting my weight in this position, which allowed me to feel secure on the side of the Nectar.

Nectar Update Back

Side – Turning onto my side, I continued to feel fantastic pressure relief from this bed. Side sleepers tend to prefer softer mattresses that contour snuggly to the shoulders and hips and the Nectar more than delivers on that front.

Stomach – Unfortunately, this comfort didn’t necessarily carry over when I rolled onto my stomach. The thick layers of memory foam caused my hips to sink out of alignment with my shoulders, which made for some tension along my spine. Overall, stomach sleepers usually opt for firmer mattresses, so I wasn’t too surprised by this result.

Nectar Update Side

NECTAR VS.

Now that we’ve broken down the specific, nitty-gritty details of the Nectar, let’s widen the scope and take a look at some of its biggest competition in the game. While every bed has unique features that make it a distinctive product in the space, it can be useful to contextualize these differences against other models. Plus, who doesn’t love a little cross-referencing before making a big purchase?

Nectar Update Corner

Purple

Comparing Purple and Nectar is like comparing apples and oranges — both are lovely in their own right, but inherently distinct goods.

  • One of the most noticeable differences comes in the Purple’s hyper-elastic polymer comfort layer. Unlike memory foam, this is a bouncy material that provides pressure relief without too much body contouring.
  • This hyper-elastic polymer grid also makes the Purple “temperature neutral,” resulting in a much cooler sleeping experience than the Nectar.
  • And finally, where the Nectar has virtually no bounce, the Purple has a tremendous amount of buoyant support.

Casper

While both the Casper and Nectar are built entirely of foam, they actually have incredibly divergent feels, with the latter featuring much more sinkage than the former.

  • Additionally, one of the standout features of the Casper is its section of Zoned Support, which brings targeted relief to the hips and shoulders.
  • This also means that the Casper has a more balanced feel than the Nectar, endearing it to a wider range of sleepers.
Nectar Update Laying

MOTION TRANSFER

Up next, let’s take a look at motion transfer. This test will demonstrate the amount of disturbance detectable from one side of the bed to the other, which could be especially important for those of you who share your bed with a partner.

To illustrate this motion transfer, I dropped a 10 lb. steel ball from heights of 4 inches, 8 inches and 12 inches and measured the disturbance it caused: the bigger the lines, the bigger the disturbance.

FYI: Each drop is meant to symbolize a different movement you’re likely to experience in bed, from tossing and turning (4”) to getting out of bed (8”) all the way to full on jumping (12”).

These are incredible motion transfer results! The thick layers of memory foam up top work to dampen movement across the structure, ensuring that you won’t be too bothered by your bed mate’s tossing and turning in the night.

SINKAGE TEST

When buying a new bed, most people want to know whether they’ll feel like they’re sinking “into” the mattress or lying “on top” of it. To visualize this sinkage, I placed four balls of varying sizes and densities (a 6 lb medicine ball, a 10 lb steel ball, a 50 lb medicine ball, and a 100 lb medicine ball) on the mattress and measured how much they compressed the surface.

The variations in size, weight and density are meant to simulate different body parts and different sized sleepers.

  • 6 lb medicine ball: 1 inch of sinkage.
  • 10 lb steel ball: 2 inches of sinkage.
  • 50 lb medicine ball: 3.5 inches of sinkage.
  • 100 lb medicine ball: 6 inches of sinkage.

I honestly thought these results would be a little more extreme! As I rolled around the Nectar, I was struck by just how much my body sank into the memory foam top layers, so it’s kind of surprising to see that the actual measurements are consistent with those of other all-foam mattresses on the market. That being said, you’re still more likely to feel as though you’re sleeping “in” the Nectar as opposed to “on top” of it.

IS THE NECTAR MATTRESS RIGHT FOR YOU?

Now that we’ve taken a closer look at the mattress, I want to provide you with a few recommendations and some of the most common Nectar complaints:

Recommendations

  • First and foremost, I’d recommend the Nectar for anyone who wants that classic memory foam feel, deep body contouring and all.
  • More specifically, I’d say this mattress could be a real winner for side sleepers, who will benefit from its cushiony pressure relief at the shoulders and hips.
  • Considering its excellent motion transfer and edge support results, I’d also say the Nectar could be a solid pick for couples.

Nectar Complaints

  • While a lot of folks will dig the thick layers of memory foam in this bed, I would say that stomach sleepers may find it sends their hips out of alignment with their shoulders.
  • Additionally, it has virtually no bounce, which could be a dealbreaker for those sleepers in search of some buoyant support.

  1. Not for low BMI side sleepers!

    This is probably a good mattress, but definitely NOT right for light weight side sleepers. I’m 5’10, 152 pounds, and for me this mattress was as hard as a rock. I did my best to make it work, even adding a 2″ latex topper, but after 2 miserable months I had to return it.

  2. Excellent customer service

    I like the mattress, although it is on the firm side. Whether that is a pro or con depends entirely on you.
    Mostly I wanted to review this as a way to review Nectar’s customer service- which is fantastic. We called multiple times prior to ordering with questions and were always answered promptly and thoroughly. After purchasing the mattress, unfortunately it did not inflate all of the way. Nectar handled this immediately and had a replacement in the mail within days. There was no issue with the fact that I had placed the order through amazon. They maintained contact with me through every step of the process and always had everything under control. (The second mattress expanded just fine.)
    The mattress is an excellent value and worth a shot. If in any way you’re unhappy, I’m positive they will take care of you.

  3. Definitely the king of mattresses!

    Being someone who has owned both a Casper and a Tuft and Needle for a year each, I figured I’d tried both ends of the spectrum and was revisiting traditional mattresses. After hearing about Nectar from family, I decided to give it a final try! Fortunately, I’m pleasantly surprised. While the T&N felt like a hard foam mattress and the Casper extremely soft, the Nectar is the perfect middle ground. It’s soft and comfortable yet provides much more support than expected. It is also amazing that I can sit on the edge of the bed (something I do frequently!) without sinking in as with other mattresses. The cooling layer is the cherry on top to a high quality mattress. Unless you’re one of the few who needs an overly firm or overly soft mattress, the Nectar is probably the best option and delivers great value for price. Also, who doesn’t want pillows included? I’m looking forward to a better night’s sleep!

  4. The Beast….

    I bought the bed like oct 2018 I think…. I wanted the mattress…. I was just about to order it and it went up another 100 in price. Then I around xmas I saw the price dropped big time…… I jumped on it. Bought it…. But the bedroom wasn’t ready for it…. remodeling and stuff… but finally got it all together…. The bed was new also. The mattress was like sleeping on a cloud or something… its firm… but soft. I sleep like a million bucks on this…. LOVING IT… its like a mini vacation lol Haven’t tried the pillows out yet… but they seem nice…

  5. Amazing experience, such a comfortable mattress & pillows, well worth the money!

    This was my first online mattress experience and it was awesome! First of all the mattress is SUPER comfortable. It is firmer than I thought it would be but it is so comfortable. It "rose" to its full shape in about an hour and there was NO chemical smell!! Comes well protected in 2 shipping bags. The pillows are rolled up with the mattress, and these were a great surprise. The quality of the pillows is awesome! I already had 2 great pillows that I paid a lot for, but these blew them out of the water! They come over stuffed (which is how I Iike them), but you can remove the stuffing as you please to get the right firmness for you! I was lucky enough to get this on a "Deal of the Day" sale, but I would easily pay full price for this!! Such a great and easy experience, walk-in mattress stores are in trouble!

  6. Almost a 5

    Nice mattress , fast delivery, easy to set up . Only thing is that it isn’t 11” thick . Mine topped out at about 9 1/2 “ thick . I am keeping it anyway because of great price & comfort.

  7. Disappointing

    The king size mattress never fully expanded. Both sides were 3-4 inches lower than the middle, also 3 holes in top layer upon delivery, see picture.
    There was off gassing, especially in the pillows. I wouldn’t use them due to the extremely strong smell.
    The reason for 3 stars is, 1- the part that did expand is comfortable; 2- Amazon’s customer service is assisting in processing our return.

  8. Great for sleep, bad for sex

    This bed is super soft and lovely to sleep on, it’s like a cloud. However, it is too soft for sex for me and my partner and doesn’t provide enough support or bounce. So if you like that sinking into the bed feeling when you have sex you will enjoy it. But I do yoga and my wrists are quite strong, yet sex on this bed strains my wrists because your hands sink in which puts pressure on the wrists and knees etc depending on the position. I got a King and I’m a bit lazy to return it but I might end up doing so.

  9. Quality could be a bit better

    I owned an original Casper before this and really liked it. I was preparing to buy another one but thought I’d give this a try since it was on sale for about half the price a Casper would cost. The comfort is about the same (fairly firm but soft and comfortable) but the quality does not seem as good. The corners are not as crisp and are a bit misshapen as other reviewers have noted… with linens it isn’t as noticable but it’s an issue that seems to be pretty common.
    The pillows were a disappointment too. I ordered a king size mattress but the pillows are standard and not particularly useful if you want king size pillows for your king size mattress! The two pillows also recovered from packaging at different rates with one taking several days before maxing out at about half the thickness of the other. Don’t buy this because you think you’re getting pillows too.. you’ll probably want better pillows. I also didn’t find either pillow particularly comfortable.
    It was a decent buy for the price but if there wasn’t such a price differential I would be willing to pay a little more for a Casper based on my prior experience with that brand. I can’t confidently recommend this but I don’t regret buying it since it was cheaper than the other options on the market.

  10. No duffel! No inner packaging, directions, or anything

    Not the pickiest user here, and I find no fault with the mattress. Not too soft, not too hard, not lumpy, no bed bugs, and does not stink. Just like my 30 year old mattress that everyone says should be thrown out. Whether I will find this to be superior and worth the expense and trouble is unknown. Seems OK.
    What I would like to note however is the packaging. You can go look at unboxing and hear about a duffel bag, an inner container, one handle and two handles, and even paperwork thrown in. None of that stuff was present at all! I would say the packaging has been cheapened and hope not at the expense of the product itself.
    The reason to be telling about this is to hopefully give buyers an insight into what to expect. I myself was expecting to get down to the inner container, and thus was in for a surprise. You see it was packaged by first compressing it, and then by rolling it in fairly heavy polyethylene (6 mil maybe) with a few rounds of thermal tacking. The only way to unwrap is to cut the plastic starting at the outside. Soon after making the first cut, you come to the 2nd set of tacks and have to cut again.
    Here is how it works folks! When you have compromised enough of those seals, you better be ready because the mattress will take it the rest of the way, and you must have its spot ready! Hope this helps!

  11. The Best Night’s Sleep Ever

    Pros: We’ve been sleeping on the Nectar for two months and I can say this is a very comfy mattress. It was a bit heavy to move into the bedroom so you might want to have someone give you a hand. It unrolled and expanded quick and easy. I smelled nothing unpleasant and we slept on it that night. The two free pillows we got are just as comfy. We love the way it keeps us cool on a warm night. I love the way I seldom have to roll over, as it makes for a restful night’s sleep.
    Cons: I expected the mattress to have a very soft upper layer. The support is awesome but the cushy upper layer is not there. I’ve heard that having too much cushion at the top can make it hard to turn over. We do not have that problem with the Nectar but thought you’d like to know. Also, it took a few nights for my body to adjust to the level of support we enjoy now. I think this may be common to any new mattress, but my wife said she had no problem.

  12. Be careful. One *free* pillow deflated. Customer service run-around not worth it.

    I know that other buyers have complained about getting deflated pillows as well as deflated mattresses. I got the pillow. Tried “fluffing” it up after waiting a few days, but it didn’t help much. Contacted customer service, and it took them about three days to reply. They asked for photos of pillows, every tag on each of them, and receipt and order number. Spent a good chunk of time gathering it all and sending as instructed. Another three days and I was instructed to send more pictures. Nope. I surrender at time-wasting crap. All I wanted was a cheap bag of fill. Apparently, their approach to warranty claims and complaints is to send customers on a time-wasting treasure hunt until they give up. So, I did. I was lucky enough to get a fully inflated mattress, and was tempted to remove two stars for the run-around, but the main product I received is as described and has offered a comfortable night’s sleep. However, buyer be warned. I would not recommend this product given my experience with their customer service team. If you were unlucky enough to get a deflated mattress, your customer service experience in garnering a replacement may end up being a nightmare.

  13. Stellar and Supportive Mattress

    I really love this mattress. After lots of researching other online mattress companies like Casper, Leesa, Lull, etc. I decided on Nectar and I am so happy with my choice. The bed is foam and manages to tow the line between soft and supportive really well. The pillows that came with the matress are the best I have ever had. There was no chemical smell after cutting the vacuum bag open. We let the bed “inflate” for about three hours before putting our sheets on it and going to bed. I’ve been sleeping better than I have in a really long time with the Nectar mattress. We have been recommending them to everyone, and we definitely will use Nectar for our next mattress purchase for our guest bedroom.

  14. A little resentful

    It’s advertised as being 11” thick, 39” wide and 80” long. Two out of three isn’t bad, and what difference can an inch make, and you would be right, because I love the mattress enough to get another, but I am a little resentful that they just couldn’t be honest about how thick it is. My girlfriend got hers first and loves hers too, but it only opened to 10” too. She slept on hers the first night. I let mine unfurl for the recommended 72 hours before sleeping on it. In both cases, 10” was as thick as they got. So be forewarned and your expectations will not be dashed. Can’t say how it will do in the long run, but it’s very comfortable now.

  15. Quality Mattress!! Best sleep I have had in years!!!

    The entire process of ordering to setting up the Nectar Mattress was impressive. Arrives on time. Nectar setup is easy they tell you the expectation of the set up, ie How long it will take to expand and all other details. Nectar mattress arrived at 11am, I set it up in less then 1 hour which included me moving my old mattress out of bedroom. It was laying flat on my box spring within 2 hours and we obviously slept on it that evening and have for the last 2 nights. I am 6′ 210lbs, I’m a side sleeper and typically would move around 3-4 time during sleep to get comfortable or adjust…..well that hasnt happen since we have been sleeping on the new mattress. The pillows are also a nice quality and I have used them for the last 2 nights and find them to be more comfortable then the “my pillow”. I will update this review in one week. But so far I am very impressed.
    3 week follow up…its a great bed!!!!!

  16. Cannot remember when I stayed in bed until noon.

    First Night:This mattress reminds me a bit of earlier Tempurpedic mattresses. I sink in, feel a bit warmer than on Latex. Heat stalls a bit (that’s why 4 out of 5 stars), but not as much as it used to do on Tempurpedics.Although I am sinking in a bit, my back feels supported – I actually now understand what “support” means when talking about a mattress – it does not necessarily mean firm. It seems that all over, my body has more contact with the mattress. Also, the top quilt layer is really comfortable.The desire to turn around is less, indicating good pressure relief. The pillows are the best, wish they were a bit wider.There is a chemical odor that seems to dissipate within a day or two.Really strange: Although there is no pain and the contact is comfortable, I remained awake and alert during the night for quite a while.
    Third Night:I do not wake up anymore with a sore back. It seems that the mattress has stabilized a bit in the sense that I am not sinking in as much as on the first night.
    First Sunday:Cannot remember when I stayed in bed until noon. The best compliment I can make to a mattress.

  17. Loved it until we found MOLD – Forever Warranty is FALSE

    We loved this mattress when we purchased it, however, after about a year, my wife noticed some discoloration on the cover underneath the mattress. She unzipped it and found that the mattress was covered in mold. I reached out to Nectar who told me that it was not covered under the warranty because of “neglect” and “lack of waterproof protection”. Nowhere did I see anything about needing some sort of waterproof protection. In fact, if you look at the product description above (next to the “lifetime warranty” claim, you will see them advertising that it can be used with “all bed types” (including box springs which is what we were using). And I’m not sure how we can neglect our mattress. At 36 years old, I have owned a number of mattresses and none of them have ever accused me of neglecting them (and none of them ever molded except for the Nectar).
    Anyhow, Amazon was kind enough to provide us with a refund after Nectar refused to do anything. So 5 stars for Amazon and 0 stars for Nectar. Take a look at the photos and see if you want to sleep on that!
    I actually think that there are more people with this issue who have no idea that they are sleeping inches above a cloud of mold. Someone else posted a review on here with a similar experience, so buyer beware!

  18. Really comfortable; pillows reek; not 11 inches thick

    Pros: very comfortable and supportive, fewer aches and pains upon awakening; easier to move/spin than my old mattress was; price was reasonable.
    Cons: slow to expand (they recommend not sleeping on it for 24-72 hours; I waited 36); mattress is more like 9” thick than 11” even after a week;one pillow expanded far more than the other; both pillows absolutely reek even after a week (although the mattress doesn’t smell anywhere nearly as bad).
    Caveat: I’ve only been sleeping on it for a week. No sign of an impression in it yet, but it’s very hard to imagine it will last “forever”, especially given how much you sink in it when you sit on the side.
    One other potential con: how will I ever get comfortable on a hotel mattress again after sleeping on this?

  19. Amazing mattress at an affordable price.

    The price was very affordable for such a great mattress. The mattress itself is extremely comfortable and quiet. My wife doesn’t wake me up when she gets up in the middle of the night to check on our 9 month old, and I don’t wake her up when I get up for work at 5:30am, so we both feel more rested! Its very firm, but not hard, so there is some give to help conform to your body shape. The only thing that may have been an issue is with the free pillows. My wife says they are a little too high for her and are a bit uncomfortable for her neck, but that is definitely not a reason to skip out on this mattress!
    Also, getting it delivered and seeing it expand once free of its packaging was pretty awesome.

  20. Very uncomfortable

    After completing the return through amazon I came to write a review and I see a lot of one start reviews saying the mattress is not an authentic Nectar – I can’t speak to that, but I am wondering if it was real or not. The mattress I got looked nice, smelled fine, I had no problems with the mattress expanding when I took it out of the packaging. However, it was the most uncomfortable mattress I have ever slept on. Super firm, like sleeping on a floor. My back hurt the first night and just kept on hurting till I switched back to my old mattress (which is also memory foam). I gave it about 2 weeks and nothing ever felt comfortable. Not for me!

  21. What about my 180 day guarantee?

    I’m no longer loving it. It was great at first but my hips always hurt and I have a hard time settling into this

  22. Don’t buy!!

    Lumpy piece of garbage. Got a cal king, opened it, didn’t inflate right away… 24 hours later, partially expanded but it looks a topographic model of the Hawaiian islands (Giant lumps everywhere). So the item is defective but needs to be packaged for ups to pick it up.. but it was vaccume packed and is now expanded and you don’t have industrial bed packing equipment… the best amazon can offer is that you pack it “as best you can” but UPS will only accept it if it’s “up to their packing standards” which implies you need to spend your money to send back something that was defective.. you see where I’m going with this?

  23. Totally worth it

    I ordered a Nectar mattress from Amazon. I got home from a jungle-hot day at work a few days later to what appeared to be a 6ftX3ft 90lb tube in my garage, which was thoughtfully shipped in a duffle bag that could’ve fit my entire Jeep. I hauled this bad boy up a flight of stairs, lungs burning like I just ran a 5k through the Mohave. I wrestled it onto my old box spring and, panting, yanked the contents from the bag (which was tighter than an elephant in an inner tube). They sent a little seatbelt cutter tool to remove the vacuum-sealed plastic, and as soon as I made the first cut, my new bed, my happy place, began hissing at me like I forgot our anniversary. I stepped back to watch with the anxiety one might have popping a can of Pillsbury biscuits against a counter. The mayhem over, the new sheets and comforter and pillows in place (because, adulting) and I’m anticipating the promised better sleep I should get from this. Otherwise, my sweat, blood and tears – because the sweat went into my eyes…I wasn’t being a little bitch – would’ve all been in vain. To be continued…
    Addendum: After one night on this mattress, I’d have to say that it was totally worth it. When my alarm went off this morning, I snoozed it a few times and thoroughly enjoyed just laying there, contemplating how much I actually need my salary, benefits and pension.

  24. Comfy but smells; edges havent inflated

    This is my second nectar purchase. I bought 2 twins for a guest room and absolutely loved the feel of sleeping on the mattress. You sink in just enough to feel cozy and find a firmer backbone below. I went to sleep really easily. So, when time came to purchase a new queen for our room, I knew I wanted a nectar. I purchased through amazon in order to use points. The mattress arrived quickly (prime 2 day). It was indeed heavy. I agree with another reviewer: be sure to unroll it where you want it. You don’t want to have to move it. This time It took several days to inflate- and the top and bottom edges of the mattress never completely inflated. There was a smell this time that I did not notice before. The smell on the mattress softened after about a week. The smell in the pillows is still strong and does not seem to dissipate. I cant use them. I did not have the smell issue with the first purchase. I dont get it.

  25. Nectar Mattress Was A Great Investment

    I’ll get right to the point. My wife and I had a sleep number mattress for 9yrs. I have Anklyosing Spondylitist (you can look that up in Google), which is nothing more than a high speed name for arthritis of my spine.
    This past year my wife has been waking up with lower back pain where she was walking around when she first woke up like a stiff robot. She could hardly bend down to get dressed. We always filled the mattress up to 100 and then dropped it down to our sleep number. For her we started to increase the number to make it firmer to see if that would help. It didn’t. I would always wake up through the night because she would get up because the bed would shake and often would wake up tired. I finally decided that enough is enough so I did extensive research on Mattresses for under 1K. All in all I spent about 2-3 hours reading and watching all of the comparisons from independent websites. After all the research, I decided to try the Nectar Mattress. I was a little comprehensive because of my condition because I didn’t want it to be too firm, but if it was, then I could send it back because of 365 night trial period.
    I ordered this mattress on Tuesday, and it arrived on my front door on Thursday. Thank you Amazon. My wife and I set it up Friday morning and we slept on it that night. It was unbelievable. After the first night, my wife woke up with very little back discomfort and could actually bend over, stand up straight and lift her left leg up off the floor. We’re in our late 40s and 50s. I have to say for me the first night was a little more difficult because I was used to sleeping on a sleep number bed at 45. However, the 2nd and 3rd nights were incredible. We both sleep like babies and when the other person turns or moves you don’t feel them. I even did the test of putting a glass of water on one side of the bed and rolling around on the other side. I’m not going to give you our height and weight but our weight is normal for both our heights. Total weight between us is 330lbs.
    We unpacked the queen size Nectar mattress that came with two pillows (we use them for sitting up in our bed) with no problem at 7:00am. The smell was minimum, nothing overbearing and we kept our ceiling fan on. We put our sheets on it at 11:00pm that night and went to sleep. Bottom line best divestment I’ve made when it came to a mattress. I highly recommend this mattress for people that sleep on the back, side, and occasionally on their stomachs. If you’re a solid stomach sleeper then their maybe a firmer mattress out there for you.
    My wife’s back is getting better everyday. We’re both feeling well rested when we get up. I have to say when it’s time to get up we don’t want to because it’s so comfortable. This morning we slept an hour longer than we should have. I usually don’t spend a lot of time reviewing products, but I thought this product/mattress was worthy of my time. I am not an employee of this company, nor was I paid for my review. Try this mattress out for yourself. You won’t be sorry.

  26. Best choice and price

    Amazon Lost my mattress in shipping but did refunded me back my money. I went straight to nectars website and in 5 business days I received my mattress. I have it for a week and it is what I expected. Great qualify and firm. I got full size and wish I had gone for the queen size. The quality it’s really nice and once you are on the bed it adopts to your body. No matter which side or how you sleep you will get a good rest. I have back problems and was somewhat sceptical about buying my mattress online, it’s one of the best choices I made. Similar mattress and size at the store was $990 and online it was $570 and came with two really nice pillows. I highly recommend.

  27. Perfect comfort for me

    I love the Nectar bed. LOVE it. Instructions good for opening and airing out; the foam smell was tolerable and was gone in a couple days; I loved the price. Two of us in our mid-60s were able to drag it upstairs (in its big duffel) and on to the bed frame. Though it is heavy, once on the bed frame, it is easy for just me to adjust it a little if I need to. I was expecting it to be a little firmer than I liked, from the other reviews, and at first it seemed awfully firm. I lay on it a couple minutes and changed my mind. It was heavenly. Supportive but cushy. Perfect firmness for me. I get hot on a memory foam mattress, even the really expensive ones, and after a full week of sleeping on the Nectar I love it more than ever. No hot spots. No tossing and turning. The pillows seemed very heavy and firm too at first, but found them just right after a minute or two.The pillows stack perfectly and stay put when I want to read in bed or sleep with my head and shoulders elevated — And I don’t have to keep adjusting them, fluffing or folding over like I always did with regular pillows. I’m 5’10" and bony, by the way, and have to use two yoga mats to keep my bones from complaining when doing floor exercises, so that’s how much I don’t want a too-firm mattress. I don’t know how it can be both very firm and very cushy at the same time but for me, that’s exactly what it is. Honestly, I can hardly wait to go to bed now, it’s so yummy.

  28. Look no further!

    Look no further! In the confusing and overwhelming shopping genre that provides more options for mattresses than anything else I can think of, I’m glad I landed on a Nectar (figuratively and literally).Anyone shopping for a mattress knows there are more options than that of a used car dealership. After trying to compare every option on every mattress I was exhausted! I had tried some high end products like Temperpedic (sp?) and just couldnt justify the cost. I had been shopping for the right one for nearly a year! I didnt want to go through the hassle of trying a bunch of the sleeping guarantees (a good option if you have the time and patience) and after reading enough reviews to make my eyes bleed I decided to finally pull the trigger. I checked the reviews using an app named “Fake Spot” and the reviews were legit. I’ve slept better than ever before since unrolling it. The only concern is that the California king is heavy so grab a friend to help move it. It’s not like you’ll be moving the thing frequently so it’s really not even a bad thing. Oh, the pillows, gotta have them. The best pillow I’ve EVER had hands down. If you are having a hard time deciding I would recommend trying the sleep guarantee, it will settle your mind in one night.Pros:ComfortableDoesn’t smell at allGreat for any sleep positionDoesn’t get hotBreathes wellPrice pointCons:It’s a little heavy

  29. Incredible comfort

    Just received this on Monday, and have only slept on it 2 nights. BUT….those 2 nights are the best 2 nights of sleep I’ve had in years. After spinal shots and now PT, I needed to find a new type of bed. I have never cared for the single Memory foam mattresses, but needed to try. We put this on my new adjustable bed frame and let it “puff” up. Added the two seemingly flat pillows and I gave it a go. When I first laid down, it felt like I was laying on a slab of cement. Then is just melted into me. BEYOND comfortable! Unlike Memory foam alone this does NOT make a rut and not let you out all night……this just gently conforms to every part of your body….even side sleepers. The pillow that came with it….at first felt like they were hard, slabs of beef! LOL And I knew my ear would be sore in a few minutes, then they did the same thing….cradled my head. It’s hard to describe the feeling when you first lay down on this bed….it’s both hard and soft, stiff and gentle but it IS the best sleep this old bad back has had in the last 30 plus years! I am already recommending this mattress to the old ladies I hang with online, as well as my family here! Hubby is getting one when we get our bonus!

  30. Better than expected!

    We took a trip to Las Vegas, and the condo we rented featured a memory foam mattress…it was the best night’s sleep we’ve had in a while. I took the sheets off, and found they put in a Nectar mattress. As soon as we got home, I ordered a king size and it arrived in about 5 days. Our Nectar was delivered in a huge blue duffle bag, and it’s HEAVY! You’ll need 2-3 people to get it up the stairs if you have a multi-floor home 😉
    We put our foundation bed together and managed to unroll the mattress on the bed. (Note- Netcar supplies a tool to open the plastic- DON’T USE A KNIFE OR SCISSORS!) It took about 2 hours for the bed to fully decompress and is around 10″ thick when complete. The cover is very high quality and everything looks to be well constructed.
    The Nectar was a bit firm the first couple of nights- it would take about 2 minutes for your body to sink in, but then it softened up and is EXTREMELY comfortable. The included pillows are very nice and supportive as well. My wife suffers from night sweats and the cooling properties of the mattress are helping her sleep well (finally!).
    After two weeks of use, I’m ready to recommend the Nectar to anyone! Great price, great warranty, and fast delivery. I’ll never go to a furniture store to buy a bed again!

  31. Defective product, poor quality control

    We ordered our NECTAR Queen Mattress on June 28th and received our new mattress on July 3rd. I was so excited when I got notified that it had been delivered that I ran home for lunch so I could get the mattress opened and let it begin to expand, in hopes that we could sleep on it that night. I lugged the big blue duffel upstairs (it’s not light) and I opened the mattress in our bedroom. I unrolled it on the floor and laid everything out so it could expand. Upon opening it I noticed a VERY strong chemical smell, especially from the pillows. I opened one of our windows and turned on the fans and left the house to go back to work.
    I arrived home after work and rushed upstairs to see how the mattress was expanding. As soon as I go into the hallway to our room I noticed again the strong chemical smell, like wet paint. As I rounded the corner, I saw that the middle of the mattress was expanded but the top and bottom were not. Both ends were only expanded to about 75% of what the middle was. I chalked it up to the compression packaging and began the process of removing our old mattress and moving the Nectar onto our bed frame, hoping that it would expand.
    We’ve now had our mattress almost a week and the top and bottom of the mattress has not expanded any further. I can still smell a faint chemical smell from the mattress. It’s annoying but not overwhelming. I have woken up with a headache for the past couple days so I’m assuming it’s related to the smell. The pillows are still so strong that it makes me feel nauseous just being close to them so they are unusable at this point (sitting outside on our deck because wet paint smell is so bad). We have tried sleeping on the mattress for the past couple of nights in hopes that it would even out but all we’ve ended up with is sore necks and legs. The middle section is quite nice but both ends of the mattress sag badly, creating a situation where we are sleeping on a rainbow-like curve and our pillows slide off the bed. It puts pressure on necks and our calves and my back/hip has been very sore because of the curve.
    I’m beginning the process of getting a replacement or refund and I’ll update this post once that process is finalized.

  32. Best Nights Sleep!😴

    The NECTAR mattress is honestly one of the best purchases I have ever made. Maybe you think I am exaggerating, but I am not. I actually didn’t even know that I needed a new mattress until I saw that the whole bottom of my old mattress was completely indented! Like the weight of my feet and the comforter had pushed it down. I had only had it a few years and didn’t want to spend over a thousand dollars on another mattress that was going to do that. I heard about NECTAR from a friend and they have a great trial period so I decided why not give it a try. You spend a third of your life in bed, so I wanted to make a good decision, but I figured with NECTAR return policy being easy, if I didn’t like it then I could return it. So I hit purchase. I received the NECTAR package in the mail soon after. Honestly our sleep changed that first night and we have never looked back to our sagging old mattress. We felt like we were cradled by memory foam that wasn’t too hot, or made us sink, or any of the "bad" things people say about memory foam mattresses. Not to mention – they offer easy shipping and returns, which was really nice for me since I hate ordering stuff online and finding out there’s a massive shipping fee. There is also a Forever warranty. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants better sleep and also a company that offers the best trial, warranty, easy delivery and customer service I’ve seen online.

  33. Great Comfort for an Awesome Price

    Traded in my ten year old Serta spring mattress and couldn’t be happier. I cross shopped several brands, including Helix, Purple and other various memory foam manufacturers, and decided on Nectar for the price point and the number of positive reviews I had seen across various websites. So far, the mattress has been great.
    In terms of off-gassing, there was some initial smell, but I didn’t notice it after 24 hours. The pillows lingered for a couple extra days, but leaving them off the bed while I was at work fixed that issue.
    The mattress itself is definitely a medium firm, so if you’re looking for a more plush feel, plan on a topper or looking elsewhere. The mattress provides plenty of support and does an excellent job of relieving pressure points, even at the medium firm level. Take that for what it’s worth, though, as I’m also partial to medium firm…that’s what I’ve slept on for the better part of my life.
    It’s also worth noting that the mattress has done a great job of dissipating heat. I tend to sleep hot, and used to wake up sweaty on my old spring mattress unless I kept the air conditioning set to 65 degrees. So far, I haven’t had an issue, even with my apartment reaching 70-75 degrees with the air turned off.
    The price point is also great. At ten times less expensive, I feel the comfort level is on par with the Tempurpedic mattresses that I had cross shopped at various brick and mortar furniture stores in my area (and almost bought into at the suggestion of the seller!).
    I’ll update if things change, but so far, I’m extremely satisfied. The bonus pillows are nice, stay cool, and are a sweet perk at the price of the mattress.

  34. A good night’s sleep for a good price

    First night my husband’s had a good night’s sleep in a long time! He said he also woke up with fewer aches and pains. I also love the mattress. We’ve purchased two XL for use on the Leggs & Platt adjustable bed. So far it’s a winning combination. The extended "try it" program was a major reason for choosing Nectar. I don’t think we’ll be returning the mattresses.

  35. So far so good 10 nights and sleeping great

    After reading many reviews from many sites on many mattresses I bought this mattress with a lot of apprehension I ordered the mattress from Amazon due to the sale price and the fact that Amazon offered a free return policy and refund if needed. This is the 2nd bed in a box/bag we have purchased. The first was 2 years ago for our camper. So far we are pleased with both. We have only been sleeping on the Nectar for 10 nights so I may update later as we have had more time. It is a firm mattress with a soft top. I have not noticed it sleeping cooler than other mattresses but my partner thinks so. I like that when one person rolls over or gets up you do not feel any movement. Some might think that it is a little more difficult to roll over or change positions but I have not noticed this. I do sleep longer in the same position which means I change positions less often. It is excellent for stomach sleepers. Our old mattress was too soft for me to sleep on my stomach but this one has been great. I am not a large person 5’2" 115 but I do think the bed is firm enough for a larger person as well.This mattress is heavy around 90 lbs so it took both of us to get it upstairs. Do wait until it is on the frame to cut the plastic with the safety cutter provided. It has a nice cover. It did have a slight odor but to smell it on the bed you had to put your nose right on the mattress and I am sensitive to odors Once the sheets were on the bed I did not notice the smell again. The pillows were much stronger smelling. I let them air out for 3 days before trying to use them.Now for the free pillows, too thick and too hard. They are great for sitting up in bed to read, watch tv or surf. I tried sleeping on them but only made it about an hour. I do like a foam pillow but these were a little too firm. It was hard to believe that something so flat in the packaging could expand so much and be so firm. They will fill the pillow shams quite well.

  36. Perfect firmness for me

    Pretty ideal mattress, I was looking online for awhile which one to buy and decided on this one. It’s a bit firm which I love, and I sleep perfectly through the night, no pain, no tossing and turning, it’s still cold where I live so I can’t attest to it running too warm or not but so far so good. The free pillows aren’t my favorite, I wouldn’t say why yet, I think they still have a bit of a smell I haven’t aired them out well, but they aren’t my primary pillow so it’s fine… plus they were ‘free’ in the purchase so I can’t really complain.

  37. Mattress is super comfortable and unlike some other models

    Mattress is super comfortable and unlike some other models, cool all night long. Once delivered, installation was quick and easy. It came in a duffle that was slightly damaged. It appeared to have been dragged during delivery, but it is quite heavy. We were concerned about the smell due to reviews that we had read, but we noticed no odor and were able to use the mattress the same day. The pillows are very thick, too thick for our liking, but they have a zippered closure that allows you to remove foam for individualized comfort.
    The NECTAR mattress is one of the best purchases we’ve ever made.

  38. Worthy Purchase, Excellent Bed. Some of the best sleep of my life!

    Ordered this bed when it was the deal of the day a little while back. Thought it was a good deal for 550.
    Showed up at the house in a large duffel like everyone else says. It is best to open with someone else. Kinda heavy and awkward trying to do it on your own. I left it for a full day to fully open. I encourage others to do the same as it gives it more time to breathe and expand. The majority of the expansion was right when you open the packaging. Oddly enough the free pillows took a while to open. up and I still feel like they haven’t opened up completely almost a week later but oh well. I gave the bed a full 24 hours and a little more to expand before sleeping on it.
    The husband LOVES the mattress. I am still getting used to it honestly. Hopefully it will relax a bit. I was used to sleeping on a plush pillow top with a 3 inch memory foam topper so it will take a bit to get used to a regular mattress but I have not had issues sleeping honestly. The other great thing is that he used to roll around a lot and I don’t feel him move much at night anymore which is really great.
    I am 6’2 and the Husband is 6’8 so when the tall people love it, you know its good. Give it a shot. If all else fails, you cant beat the return policy.
    UPDATE: After a few weeks, I honestly have to say that I love this mattress. It became softer with time and I have had some of the best sleep in my life on it. the memory foam became softer as time has passed but is still a good combo of firm and soft. Definitely provides some excellent support for back and side sleepers. I encourage people to give it a shot all the time. I was very hesitant about the idea of a "mattress in a box" but this put my mind at ease.

  39. Great mattress, I just wanted something more soft.

    We ended up buying something else after we felt this mattress, because it was just too firm for us. I’d say it’s a medium-firm. It’s nice, but I really love to melt into my mattress and not feel anything under me. If you like a medium-soft, soft, or extra-soft mattress, this isn’t the one for you.

  40. So comfortable, so convenient

    Just got our new queen mattress yesterday and spent the night on it – so far, terrific experience! The mattress arrived yesterday rolled up in a sturdy blue shipping cover. Underneath that is a zippered case, so opening this and actually placing it on the bed is a one-person job (but getting your old mattress out of the way may take two).
    The mattress and two free pillows (!!) are encased in heavy-duty packaging, so you get a little tool, like a letter opener, to open it and instructions that are clear and concise, similar to what you get when you buy an Apple product. First, you place the rolled-up mattress on your box springs, then carefully slit the vacuum-packed shipping sleeve. The mattress starts to expand slowly while you unroll it on the bed. After you remove the wrapping, the mattress and pillows continue to expand over a few hours.
    We made up the bed and chased the curious cats away. First night’s report:• Not too firm, not too soft, good support. No sag at the ends.• The memory foam cover is cool and comfortable.• There was a slight odor from the fresh foam when you unwrap it (they let you know this in advance), but it disappeared after a few hours.• Woke up refreshed from a good night’s sleep. The curious cats liked it, too.
    So far, a great experience at a great price!

  41. Better than my waterbed in the 80s!

    Got ours at 10am in a giant blue duffel bag and a silver duffel inside and wrapped in plastic, twice! Came with a handy cutting tool to clear through the plastic. Had it set up with two of us in about 5 minutes. It expanded to 11 inches almost immediately. We live in Hawaii. We slept on it same night. Had a slight odor, but not after a few hours of being set up. I was having terrible insomnia and our old mattress was hot… we have no a/c. I slept pretty much through the night with at least three dreams. Although I wouldn’t say this sleeps “cool” I would say it isn’t hot like our old bed. It’s incredibly supportive without that sinking feeling. I sleep on the edge and had no issues. Rolling over is easy. I felt more like I was being hugged nothing really pressing on me or pushing back but solidly held up. The pillows that came with it are pretty solid, I may give them another few nights and see if I need to remove some stuffing. Good for side sleepers as they give good neck support and weren’t hot. Didn’t feel my hubby get up in middle of the night… so not too much movement is transferred to partner. No pains this morning for me. I had some hip pain and shoulder pain on my old bed, not so much with this bed. So far so good… see how night two goes. Night two… even better! ….Nectar Sleep night two … okay… love this bed! Not only am I not sweating (and it’s HOT outside with no a/c inside) in bed but I am asleep all night! And with pain in one shoulder and my other hip, I used to toss and turn all night long! Now I can lay on both sides with no pain! And I don’t feel hubby moving around either. And I like the pillow now on night two. Thank you so much!

  42. Life changing!

    This mattress has changed my life! I’m a busy mom of six, I NEED good sleep. My husband and I were sleeping on a horrendous torture device from another company that made me feel about 112 years old every morning. We ordered a queen size mattress from Nectar and it arrived in no time, neatly packaged. My husband (with help from our son) unrolled it and set it up with no trouble. I waited a little while for it to “expand” then lay down to try it out. I can only describe my feelings as PURE BLISS. This mattress is not too soft, but not too firm either. The foam kind of “absorbs” any tension you might have and just perfectly supports your body ensuring a perfect night of sleep. I have never slept so well in my life! Along with the pillow from Nectar, this mattress makes me fall asleep instantly, no tossing and turning, trying to find a comfortable position. In the morning I wake up refreshed and without any pain. I can’t recommend this mattress enough. Thank you, Nectar!
