The Love & Sleep mattress is the latest offering from Nest Bedding, a company I have a lot of respect for.

The mattress aims to have all the benefits of memory foam mattresses without any of the drawbacks (read more HERE).
It does this all at a very affordable price point as well.  I came away impressed with the mattress and think there are a lot of things that make the mattress stand out amongst its competitors.  It even takes advantage of the latest fabric and foam technology to have some really cool features.  Read more full my full take on the mattress.

Construction Overview

  • The cover has phase change material in it.  That means you will be more likely to sleep cool.  That was my experience with it, but I would encourage you to do some independent research into this material as well.  (Read more from the company)
  • The top layer is 3 inches of Energex foam.  Energex is a specialty foam that aims to have the pressure relief of memory foam but with bounce.  It is definitely a resilient foam that makes it easier to move around in bed.  The foam is also high-density, meaning it is a good, durable material.
  • The second layer is 1 inch of convoluted foam to provide extra airflow.
  • The base layer is 6 inches of 1.8 lb. density polyfoam.

You Might Want To Pick The Love & Sleep Mattress If:

  • You Want Pressure Relief Without The Feeling Of Getting Stuck– One thing that really stands out with this mattress is how great the pressure relief is and at the same time how responsive the foam is.  The Energex foam does a really great job of relieving pressure relief and yet the mattress responds almost immediately, so it’s easy to move around and you don’t ever feel like you get stuck in the mattress.
  • You Want An Amazing Value– You’d be hard-pressed to find a better value at this price point ($600 for a Queen).  You can certainly find a more luxurious mattress, but for the price that you pay, you really do get an amazing value.
  • Sleeping Cool Is A Big Priority For You– At this price point, there aren’t too many mattresses that have directly addressed the issue of sleeping hot like this mattress.  The cover is a phase-changing material.  The Energex foam is a breathable foam.  The mattress has a one inch air-flow layer as well.  When you add it all up, you are more than likely going to have a nice and cool sleeping surface.
  • You Want Durable Materials– Given the price point, this mattress is very durable.  The Energex foam is a very high-density foam and the base foam is high-density enough to make the mattress last longer than just about any other mattress around this price point.

You Might Not Want To Get This Mattress If:

  • You Want A More Luxurious Mattress– If you have the budget for it, you can definitely get something that is more luxurious and has more bells and whistles.
  • You Like The Slow-Moving Memory Foam Feel– This mattress is very responsive.  If you prefer the quicksand, slow-moving feel that memory foam provides, then you should know that’s not exactly what you get here.
  • You Like A More Traditional Innerspring Feel– You get more bounce with this mattress, but it is definitely still a foam mattress.  If you want a more innerspring feel, you will probably have to look elsewhere.

Firmness/Feel

The Medium version of this mattress has a good middle-of-the-road firmness level to it.  I think for most people it will be soft enough for side sleepers but firm enough for most back/stomach sleepers.  You can see too from the video that the foam is very responsive, unlike pure memory foam.  That means you won’t feel like you get stuck in the mattress.

Motion Transfer

You can see from the video that this mattress does a great job at isolating motion.  That makes it a good option for couples who don’t want their partner’s movement to disturb them.

What Makes This Mattress Stand Out?

  • The price point is very attractive given how comfortable it is and how durable the materials are.
  • The mattress directly addresses the issue of sleeping hot more than any other mattress I’ve see at this price point.
  • The materials in this mattress are very durable, especially given the price point.
  • The mattress has a great balanced foam feel with good pressure relief and resilience.
  • The company provides a lifetime warranty and lifetime comfort guarantee.  They really want their customers to be happy

Overall

I think it’d be hard to find a mattress that’s better at this price point.  If you want to pay more, you can certainly find a more luxurious mattress, but at this price point it’s an awesome value.

Hi, Joe, I was debating between the Love and Sleep and the Ghost Bed. Which one would you recommend for someone wanting a slightly firm (medium firm) bed? I’ve read reviews that out the Love and Sleep at a 6 and the Ghost Bed at a 7, so not sure how much of a difference that makes. I am mainly a back sleeper but inevitably end up on my side. My wife is mainly a side sleeper as well. I should also note I have a bad lower back so back support is important to me. So it needs to be firm enough for my back support but soft enough for side sleeping. Thanks!

Hi Andrew – there is a slight difference in firmness, but probably the bigger difference would be feel with these two. I’d check out the firmness/feel videos for each (I know still not like laying on it yourself, but it’s the best I can do 😉 and make your decision based off of that. I think both are potentially good for side sleepers.

Can this mattress go on an existing boxspring?

Yes as long as it is still stable, old boxspring should be just fine.

I really appreciate your review site and have made it my main hub for finding the right mattress. Could you contrast the bear mattress against the love and sleep briefly? Specifically on comfort and support for back sleepers and how much of a disadvantage the bear is for love? Thanks again.

I feel like the pressure of the Bear is a little better, but that doesn’t matter so much for back sleepers. The support is going to be about equal in my opinion. Any disadvantage for love is minimal.

I’m a potential buyer; I had a mid-priced memory foam mattress, but I left the country and foam behind I bought a Sealy mattress as foam is quite pricey here. Decent mattress although before foam, I slept on $1500-2K mattresses, but I detest coils. With full fibromyalgia and a chronic pain I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy, (if I had one), foam is best choice.

Comparing your mattresses to Casper, which start at higher price point & don’t deliver outside U.S., as u do, which do you recommend? Price is a consideration, but my Sealy’s only three years old, well protected and looks new (could sell it here for about $300-$350), perhaps add another $4-500 for new foam mattress. I’m mostly a side sleeper, but find I like sleeping on my back, mostly bcs some days I’m in bed too much, forced to change positions on my traditional mattress. I don’t feel the coils, but know they’re there (guess it’s mind over matter).

I believe you’re an true professional, (a rarity these days) and know you’ll be honest, Joe. Thanks so much for your time, so appreciate it.

Sincerely,

Gladys Alicea

P.S. Do number & spaces between slats on platform bed make a difference, or is a solid piece better?New platform beds are inexpensive to have custom-made in MX. Tons of biz here for a company like yours, as I looked at a twin-size foam bed on adjustable platform (nothing fancy); it was $1700 USD. (They discovered foam in Mexico City in 2012 when I first moved here; now I live in a diff city with tons of expats and cheaper costs, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Beautiful; plenty of cheap locations, cheap, great carpenters. Just a thought.)

Hey Gladys, did you mean to reach out to the company itself?

Hi, Joe, We are needing to get a new bed but can’t figure out a way to go. I’m wondering if you’ve ever tried a gel/foam topper on any of the beds you have reviewed? Costco has a nice topper we’ve liked on other beds. We like the memory foam concept and prefer the quicksand feel over the lying on top feel. But it seems that all beds start to break down pretty quickly, so we’re hesitant to spend tons of money. Do you think something like Purple with a topper would work? Or do you have any recommendations for a bed that might be both soft and supportive? the Love and Sleep looks interesting that way. Thanks for your thoughts!

I like the Purple on its own. Its both supportive and pressure-relieving at the same time. The Love & Sleep is great if you are on a budget. I’d rather you get a great mattress than getting a mattress knowing you will put a topper on it.

Do you have any input on a Love and Sleep vs Tuft and Needle battle? About the same price. Also seems like people have been mostly comparing the medium Love and Sleep to the Tuft & Needle. How would you compare these two? Any advice would be great. Thanks for all the good work!
