1390

Nectar is a mattress-in-a-box (technically bag) brand that relies heavily on memory foam. If you’ve had success with memory foam in the past, this might be the mattress of your dreams.

They claim to manufacture high-quality, comfortable memory foam mattresses that come with a forever guarantee. The price is excellent, and the trial period is hard to beat as well.

But is there value in the low price? We’ll explore this question below.

Pros

  • You can try this mattress for an entire year before committing
  • Lifetime warranty
  • Exceptional pricing
  • Great for stomach and side sleepers
  • If you like memory foam, you’ll love this mattress

Cons

  • Feels like memory foam, which some people won’t like
  • Can be a bit warm at night
  • Not firm enough for back sleepers

Firmness and Support

Very Soft

Very Firm

Nectar: 4/10

The Nectar mattress is on the softer side and should be about what you expect in a memory foam bed. Nectar distributes pressure evenly throughout its mattresses, making a perfect sleeping surface for every sleeping style.

It should be comfortable for back, side, stomach, and combination sleepers to sleep on this bed. The memory foam fills the gaps it needs to and supports parts that need a bit more pressure. Since the top layer is soft, side sleepers will probably be the happiest with this mattress.

Heavier people might find that the mattress becomes a bit firmer faster than they imagined. The top layer pushes down over time, and this is exacerbated when someone is overweight. Thankfully, Nectar provides a lifetime warranty, so you can always get a new bed if yours starts to sag below a comfortable position.

Motion Isolation

Poor

Good

Nectar: 10/10

Motion isolation is one of the primary reasons people choose a memory foam mattress. There is hardly any noticeable motion transfer in the Nectar mattress whatsoever. You won’t get bothered by your partner’s tossing and turning, and your pet's jumping on the bed won’t do much either.

As far as sinkage is concerned, the Nectar will sink a bit more than some of the other mattress-in-a-box mattresses we’ve reviewed. Again, Nectar makes their mattresses out of memory foam first, so most people will expect to sink in a bit. Still, the sinkage isn’t overwhelming. If you didn’t like the sinkage of a previous memory foam mattress, this one might be firm enough for you.

The bounce in the Nectar is about what you’d expect from a memory foam mattress. It’s there, but the response time isn’t immediate. If you like your bed to be a bit bouncier, try a mattress with a top layer that isn’t memory foam.

Off-Gassing and Smell

Off-gassing is usually a bit worse with dense memory foam than other foam beds, and the Nectar isn’t much different. You’ll want to open a window or two in your bedroom as you place this mattress in the location you want.

The odor starts strong but fades in a few hours. It’s still noticeable for another two to three days after setup. People who are sensitive to such smells will probably want to stay away from memory foam mattresses in the first place. You’ll be hard-pressed to find one that doesn’t give off a smell for a couple of days when it’s new.

Construction and Material

Nectar uses three layers of memory foam in their mattress, including a surface layer embedded below the cover. The cover is filled with one inch of gel memory foam to help keep people cool when they sleep. Unlike other memory foam beds, this one won’t have you waking up in a pool of sweat.

Beneath the surface are two more layers of memory foam. On top is a slow-to-respond, three-inch layer of foam that most people expect when buying a memory foam mattress. After the top layer, there's a transitional layer of adaptive Hi Core memory foam. This layer is a bit thinner than the layers above and below, aiming to support your body’s weight throughout the night.

Like a lot of other foam mattresses, Nectar makes their base layer out of poly foam. This thick layer provides support and makes sure that the bed keeps its form over its lifespan.

Does it Sleep Hot or Cool?

SLIGHTLY HOT:


Like most memory foam mattresses, the Nectar is going to be on the warmer side. The cooling gel layer at the top will help neutralize the heat a bit, and the cover is breathable enough to let the hot air escape.


Most regular sleepers shouldn’t have a problem with the heat level. If you’ve ever used a memory foam mattress in the past, this one won’t be any warmer. If you’re always hot at night, though, you probably want to stay away from memory foam.


Other foam mattresses are more breathable, but memory foam holds heat more efficiently. If you live in a warm-weather location, you’re probably going to be hot at night.

Unique Features

  • The Nectar mattress is a lot like other memory foam mattresses on the market. They try to prioritize cooling as much as they can, but a lot of memory foam mattresses try to address cooling. It’s one of the memory foam weak points, so most mattress companies try to correct the heat level.
  • Pricing, Warranty, and Trial Period: The unique feature of the Nectar comes in the form of pricing, trial period, and warranty. The industry standard for mattress-in-a-box products is a trial period of 100 days, with a warranty that lasts about 15 years. Nectar blows these numbers out of the water, with a trial period that lasts an entire year. You can sleep on this mattress for 365 nights before deciding whether or not you want to keep it. It’s rare to find a lifetime warranty in the mattress industry, since every mattress sags and breaks down over time. Fortunately, if you’re worried about the Nectar losing its shape, you don’t have to be. Nectar will replace your mattress if it becomes damaged at any time. Since the price is far lower than the competition, you could end up paying one low price for a mattress that will last the rest of your life.

Public Perception

The user reviews for Nectar are mostly positive and fall in line with a lot of the other mattresses we’ve seen. Some people like it better than their previous mattress, and some people don’t think it lived up to the promise. Since customer service is responsive and the price is so low, customers seemed to be swayed to the positive side, though, even when they didn’t love the mattress.

Generally, those who like memory foam were happy with their purchase, and those who don’t like memory foam had a hard time finding a comfortable spot. Side and stomach sleepers seemed to love the mattress, while back sleepers had a few complaints.

Here’s a first impressions video from one man and his pets:

In this video, we get a glimpse of what the customer service experience is like with Nectar:

The Purchasing Process

From ordering to delivery to setup: The process of purchasing a Nectar mattress is simple. Once you’ve decided you want to test it out, determine what size you need and plug in your shipping and payment information. It should arrive within one to five business days after your purchase.

The Nectar package is a bit larger than some of the other mattresses we’ve reviewed. It isn’t as heavy, but the size means it can be a bit clunkier when bringing it up a flight of stairs. It also comes in a bag, so it’s relatively tricky to get it into your bedroom.

Once you get the mattress where it needs to be, though, you’re almost done with the process. Unpack the mattress slowly as not to damage the mattress. Place it on your bed frame and allow it to expand. Nectar expands in a couple of hours and should completely expand within one day.

Customer Service

Like most of the mattress-in-a-box companies we’ve reviewed, Nectar provides superb customer service. You can call, email, or chat with a representative from 9 AM - 12 AM EST seven days a week.

If you go to bed at 10:00 on Sunday and wake up at 11:00 with back pain, a representative will be there to answer your call or chat message. Customer support is responsive and helpful, and prioritize customer experience over almost everything.

The level of customer service shouldn’t be too much of a surprise coming from Nectar. This is the same company that lets customers try their mattress for 365 days and exchange it for a new one at any point.

How Much Does It Cost

Nectar provides fantastic value. Their King beds are only $900 at regular price, but there’s almost always some deal you can find. As of this writing, Nectar is holding a tax return sale, which gives customers $125 off and includes two premium pillows. A king bed is only $775 with this deal, which is less than the price of a queen from some other companies.

The price breakdown is as follows (regular price, no discount):

  • Twin: $500
  • Twin XL: $550
  • Full: $700
  • Queen: $795
  • King: $900
  • Cal King: $900

How It Compares

A lot of other mattress-in-a-box brands don’t focus on memory foam, so it’s not a fair comparison to talk about Nectar about brands like Purple and Leesa. If you like memory foam, you’ll be happy, and if you don’t, you’d probably prefer one of the other options we’ve mentioned.

As far as other memory foam mattresses go, Nectar is cooler and more responsive. You don’t sink into the mattress like quicksand, and most people won’t overheat after a night’s sleep.

Is Nectar Right For You?

Nectar is ideal for a memory foam fan who is on a budget. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better deal than Nectar, especially when they have promotions going on. They're trial period if virtually unmatched, and their lifetime warranty means you might never have to pay for a mattress again.

While side sleepers and stomach sleepers will find a comfortable position, the Nectar is a bit too soft for most back sleepers. If you want something a bit firmer, we suggest taking a look at our Lull mattress review.

If memory foam is too hot for you, take a look at our Purple mattress review and see what you think. Purple focuses on keeping you cool and comfortable, and it’s perfect for people who run hot during the night.
