What Sets Nectar Apart from Other Foam Mattresses?
A major difference is that the Nectar mattress is only available online; Nectar does not have any brick-and-mortar locations. Buying a mattress via the web is convenient; the product ships right to your home in the continental U.S. within only about five days. There’s even an extra service you can order online from the company to set it up in your house and take away the old mattress.
Nectar even comes with a 365-night trial. Yes, you can sleep on it for a full year and still return it free of charge if you’re not completely satisfied with it. Not many mattresses can say this! This protection enables you to easily return the mattress if it does not meet your needs at home. The reality is that you can’t know how the mattress helps you sleep until it’s in use night after night. Having the ability to try it out risk-free is handy. If you don’t like it, they will arrange item pickup with you at no cost and return your money.
Nectar Mattress: Benefits of its Cover
You’ll find several layers in the Nectar. It features a soft quilted top layer. The top design enhances to the memory foam feel. Reviewers online explain that the cushiony top gives a comfortable sinking feeling, especially for a side sleeper. In addition to being soft, the top layer also contains 1 inch of gel memory foam to help prevent the body from overheating while sleeping, which could wake you up. More than one web-based review mentions the positive feeling of staying cool at night with the Nectar.
Additional Layers of the Nectar Mattress
Below the cover are two middle memory foam layers, and beneath that is a thick poly foam base. The first 3-inch memory foam layer is designed to provide pressure relief and distribute weight evenly. As for the second layer of memory foam, it provides a way to transition from the soft upper layers to the firmer base. Along with offering pressure relief, this second layer also keeps the body from getting stuck in the base layer, which would make it hard to move around, by having a bit of bounce to it.
Lastly, the base layer is the foundation. It provides stability for the bed and helps the mattress retain its structure. Also, the bottom two layers help keep spine alignment for the person on the bed (head and back). In total, between all of its layers, the Nectar mattress is 11 inches high.
What Does it Feel Like to Sleep on the Nectar?
This bedding has a medium firmness. While the top layer is cushiony, the layers below respond more slowly to someone lying on it, and the two bottom layers are firm. The result is good support, especially if you sleep on your side or want to prevent pain to the pressure points, such as the back, when you wake up. As per one online reviewer, switching to the Nectar mattress alleviated the lower back pain he felt for the first 30 minutes of the day upon rising from his previous bed.
A person who prefers a softer feel overall to their mattress though might choose another model. For back sleepers, the medium-range firmness of this mattress will likely feel great. Plus, Nectar’s reasonable price point is tough to pass up. Unfortunately, stomach sleepers might find it a bit too stiff, as a softer surface is better for this sleeping position. We think that Nectar would be wise to make its mattress available in different firmness levels to benefit more people.
How the Nectar Mattress Rates on Motion Transfer & More
If you have a partner, then you likely know that it can be aggravating to wake up when your partner moves during the night. Thankfully, many Nectar mattress reviewers explain that they don’t feel disruption or motion transfer when their partner’s body moves while they’re both lying on it.
As for the cushiony feel of the top layer, the Nectar will appeal to those who want a sinking sensation as they lay down to drift off to dreamland. As with everything though, not everyone will like this feature. For example, a heavier person will notice more sinkage than someone of a lighter weight and may find the feeling uncomfortable. Sinking overtime on the edges is noted by some users too.
But many customers online cite the mattress as low-noise when in use and also write that they like the breathability of the gel insert. Also, the materials used for the Nectar are Certi-Pur certified. Sleep easier knowing the foam is free of ozone depleters, flame retardants, and other potentially harmful chemicals.
On Different Sizes and Pricing
Another positive point to make in this Nectar mattress review is that it comes in all of the popular sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King. As the size increases, the price does as well. In our opinion, the prices are competitive and worth it for the comfortable feel and memory foam layers, as well as the integrated cooling gel feature. Some other mattresses cost more for the same high-comfort feel.
The mattress weight is either 45 or 89 pounds, depending on size chosen. Its light weight makes for an easier setup in the bedroom.
Please note that the Nectar mattress ships compressed, so it’s important to unwrap it to start the decompression process as soon as possible after it arrives at your house. Some users explain that when they unwrap the mattress, it has a slight smell to it. But an odor is fairly common for new mattresses and reviewers write that the faint smell went away in about 24 hours.
Evaluating the Pros & Cons of the Nectar Mattress
Realistically speaking, no item is perfect. The Nectar comes close, but it has a few small faults. As earlier cited, the mattress has a slight smell when first unwrapped, although it’s not long-lasting. The medium firmness too won’t appeal to every sleeper. We suggest the company add more firmness options to suit side sleepers or those who want more overall softness to their mattress.
The positive points of this Nectar mattress review though far outweigh any minor limitations. The cushiony top, two quality memory foam layers, gel infusion, and low motion transfer are all great qualities. Plus, the mattress comes in all popular sizes and is low-priced for what it can provide the back or side sleeper. We give the Nectar mattress a high rating for its affordability and large number of great features, not the least of which is a long trial period.
