NECTAR’s mattress is a good option if you want a memory foam based mattress at an affordable price.
It has four foam layers – including two gel memory foam layers – and cooling technology built into the cover. It has a pillow-top like feel for comfort and body contouring but its high-density foam base layer keeps you supported.
While it may not have been the absolute best mattress I’ve ever slept on, I did find NECTAR to be quite comfortable. Big bonus: you get 365 nights to try it out and a warranty that covers manufacturing defects that last forever. Be aware of back ordering as other customers had issues receiving their mattresses at times. Read on for my full review. Note: please note that the company is currently experiencing some delays in shipping time.
The NECTAR mattress was designed in America but is made in China. It’s made up of four foam layers plus a cover for a total mattress profile of 11”. Here is a breakdown of each layer and the mattress cover.
|Twin||39” x 75” x 11”||45lbs|
|Twin XL||39” x 80” x 11”||48lbs|
|Full||54” x 75” x 11”||68lbs|
|Queen||60” x 80” x 11”||74lbs|
|King||76” x 80” x 11”||89lbs|
|Cal King||72” x 84” x 11”||89lbs|
NECTAR says that their mattress provides you with support but the comfort of a pillow top. With this reasoning in mind, they’ve labeled their mattress as “medium firm.”
With its memory foam layers, the bed is really intended to contour to your body and relieve pressure. This means you will sink into the mattress – slightly – and it will be less firm than a traditional innerspring mattress or a more responsive type of foam.
You can see in the video that NECTAR does a pretty good job in terms of motion transfer and limiting movement. It could work well for couples, but you should expect to feel something when your partner moves/gets out of bed.
Trial: NECTAR offers a 365 Night Home Trial, which means that you can sleep on the mattress for a year and still return it if it does not meet your expectations.
Warranty: NECTAR has a “Forever Warranty” available to you. Simply put, they guarantee that there are no issues with workmanship and materials for as long as you have the mattress.
For the first five years of ownership, NECTAR will replace your mattress with a new one at no charge to you. After five years, they will repair and/or recover your mattress, but you must pay a $50 transportation cost/fee each way (which will be waived if there are manufacturing issues with it).
There are additional features and details of the warranty that are worth reading in full on NECTAR’s website.
Certifications: NECTAR uses foams that are CertiPUR-US® approved. According to NECTAR, this means they are made without: ozone depleters, PBDE flame retardants, mercury, lead and other heavy metals, formaldehyde, phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. They are Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million).
NECTAR has thoughtfully designed a memory foam mattress that contours to your body to allow you to sleep in a variety of positions while staying cool all night.
People seemed to have had trouble getting their mattress on time – or at all- and customer service seems to been questionable as well based on many reviews. Once people got their mattress, they seemed pretty pleased with the product.
The NECTAR mattress is on par with other online foam mattresses available. At full price ($795 for a Queen) it is slightly more affordable than foam mattresses from Casper or Bear.
