The Nectar Mattress is unbelievable! It scores amazingly well for both value and comfort. With a price for a queen of $699 after coupons, this mattress is affordable for almost everyone. Furthermore, the Nectar mattress relieves pressure, contours to the body, and just feels great. It has a traditional memory foam feel that gives a gentle hug and allows the sleeper to sink right into the foam. It is firm enough for great support, but has a cozy, pillow-top like feel for comfort.
Additionally, the warranty and trial policy for the Nectar Mattress are the best in the industry. The forever warranty covers defects for all time and the trial period is a full year, three to four times the length of what any competitor has.
Other huge positives for the Nectar mattress include its high density foam layers and that it it easy to move around. The Company also scored overall well in all essential categories including support, durability, and coolness. It also did well with other attributes such as little motion tranfer, the right amount of sinkage, decent edge support, and limited off-gassing.

|Top 20 Considerations||Rating||Detail|
|1||Good Value?||96.82%||Well-rounded mattress. The finest materials and superb craftmanship of a luxury mattress that delivers excellent support combined with extreme comfort – all at a competitive price point. One of the best mattress at a much better price. Not only does this mattress cost less, it lasts longer. Unheard of year long trial period and forever warranty, at a price that can’t be beat. Surpasses many other higher priced mattresses in support and comfort. Per Nectar, fewer than 3% of Nectar sleepers return their Nectar mattress.|
|2||Comfortable?||95.99%||Amazing to sleep on. Plush. The Nectar mattress relieves pressure, contours to the body, and just feels great. Traditional memory foam feel that gives a gentle hug and allows the sleeper to sink right into the foam. Firm enough for great support, but cozy, pillow-top like feel for comfort. Very comfortable from the special breathable cover to the high quality memory foam layers. Nectar ran a study with findings that Nectar sleepers fall asleep 20% faster than sleepers on other mattresses. Although some sleepers report that this mattress is softer than other memory foam mattresses, others have said it is more firm. Has earned many comfort awards.|
|3||Supportive?||95.63%||Plush but highly supportive. The top comfort layers offer a soft, luxurious feel while the underlying support layers provide the needed strength below. Although not as firm as a traditional innerspring mattress or a more responsive type of foam, this mattress with its high-density foam base layer is designed for consistent long-term support. In fact, Nectar’s combination of layers and materials allows the mattress to both contour and support the body.|
|4||Durable / Quality Built?||95.67%||Very durable and high quality. The high quality of the mattress is backed up with the forever warranty. Nectar guarantees that the better quality materials, from the premium cover to the strong base, will last a life time. The sharp looking, Tencel and cotton blend breathable cover is naturally resistant to bed bugs and minimizes the effect of dust, pet dander, and other allergens. The quilted gel memory foam top layer, which undergoes a super premium quilting process that most companies do not do, provides extra loft, comfort, and better breathability. The Lush Foam layer has five patents and uses the most premium, medical grade gel foam available. The Hi Core adaptive foam layer affords the single best inner layer for contouring a mattress can have. And finally the base contains a more dense base foam than many competitors. Has earned many quality awards.|
|5||Sleep Cool?||94.62%||The Nectar mattress is designed with breathability in mind. It sleeps cool, gently regulating temperature all night long, giving the sleeper a good night sleep. The cover promotes excellent air circulation and has below an added aloe based cooling layer that keeps away heat. The Lush foam layer, with its medical grade cooling properties, absorbs and distributes heat. And the base layer draws fresh air in through special channels. Even with this great design, high density foam still does keep some people warm. That said, the Nectar mattress is one of the cooler memory foam mattresses available.|
|6||Warranty?||97.26%||Forever warranty. Impressions of 1.5″ or more are covered by the warranty. Best warranty available any where.
|7||Return Policy?||98.07%||Risk free for a full year. Three or four times the length of competitor’s policies.|
|8||Customer Service?||93.94%||Even though Nectar states that customer service is the backbone of what they do, they have had some negative comments. Most of these have stemmed from the large backlog they have had. The backlog is getting better, so customer service should also improve.|
|9||Good Reputation?||92.34%||Not entirely manufactured in the USA. In business only since 2017. Highly rated by many review sites for quality and comfort. Unfortunately, with success comes greater demand. Huge popularity has caused back ordering which has caused some unhappy customers. Fortunately, once customers have received their mattress, they have become overall quite pleased.|
|10||Socially Good?||91.81%||“Nectar foam is CERTIPUR-US® certified and the company has an industry leading VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) score for air quality. They will remove a customers old mattress. Unlike many other mattress companies, Nectar is not known for donating mattresses or giving back to the community.
|11||Motion Transfer / No Sinkage?||95.79%||Very dense foam layers absorb motion easily so there is little disturbance on one side when there is commotion on the other. The dense foam layers also make for a slow response time. Nectar has focused on pressure relief and support rather than response time. Regardless of not being as responsive, there is no feeling of being trapped. Thus, there is little sinkage. The Hi Core memory foam layer provides contouring and support while at the same time combatting sinkage.|
|12||Edge Support?||92.48%||Even though memory foam mattresses are known for poor edge support, the Nectar mattress is better than most. It is built for consistent firm support edge to edge and many customers have found that this is the case.|
|13||Bouncy?||93.78%||Although the Nectar mattress has better bounce than most other foam beds, it stands no chance against some other options, like the innerspring mattress. Nectar’s many foam layers concentrate on controlling motion rather than providing bounce.|
|14||Noisy?||96.62%||Quiet mattress. No banging, squeaking, popping , hissing, or rattling.|
|15||Off-Gassing?||94.74%||Because Nectar is a denser foam mattress, it is prone to give off more gases. Notwithstanding, the exceptional quality of the mattress’s foam limits any rancid odor. Any faint initial smell will dissipate quickly and any faint new mattress smell will leave after a few days.|
|16||Easy to Handle / Break In / Maintain?||96.22%||Easy to unbox and start using. Little break-in time needed, but the mattress for some will feel softer over time. Surprisingly lighter than normal even though the foam is denser than most. Nectar recommends only spot cleaning the cover and using a water resistant mattress cover. The mattress should be rotated head to toe perhaps once or twice yearly.|
|17||Good for Backs?||94.69%||The Nectar mattress molds to a sleeper’s body, relieving all aches and pains, including back pain. Specifically, the quality memory foam supports a sleeper’s back health. A back sleeper will appreciate this mattress with its slightly firm feel, even distribution of support, and only minor sinkage.|
|18||Good for Side Sleep?||93.27%||This mattress is excellent for side sleepers. Side sleepers will enjoy the less firm feel than many other comparable mattresses. They will also like other aspects of this mattress including exceptional body contouring, better spinal alignment, superb pressure point relief, and the high foam density composition.|
|19||Good for Stomach Sleep?||93.83%||Stomach sleepers may find this mattress too soft. Even though this mattress has high density foam, a great combination of foam layers, and good support, the overall firmness of 5 to 7 might just be not firm enough for these finicky sleepers.|
|20||Good for Larger Sleepers?||95.19%||Even though many larger and heavier sleepers prefer a more firm and thicker mattress, the Nectar will do well for many of these sleepers. They will be pleased with the two layers of Gel Memory Foam that help distribute weight. They will also be partial to the high density of the foam, the minimal sinkage, and the great support.|
