The Nectar mattress has been a leading mattress in the European market for some time now. It has only recently been introduced to the United States and the reception has been impressive. What grabbed my attention regarding this product was the knowledge that I had to complete a report of my own because There is an unbelievable 365-night trial period. No one else offers that kind of a trial window. There’s also a lifetime guarantee on the product. The company markets their brand as not just the best design you’ll ever buy, but the last. With a promise like that how could I refuse?
This product consists of four layers, all made up of a different type of foam. The industry standard is three, so this was already a win for me. The first layer is 1” thick and made up of a quilted foam that’s sewn right into the cover. It improves airflow and helps to relieve pressure points. It also provides a luxurious feel.
The second layer is also 1” thick and made of lush foam. This is a gel memory base that provides the first layer of support and also helps keep the bed cool. The third layer is 3” thick and considered the transition layer. It’s made from medical grade cooling gel that’s embedded into the material.
This brings us to the last layer you’ll notice if you trial this product yourself. The fourth layer is 6” thick and made from high density materials. This serves as the main support for your bed and provides deep compression support.
The cover is made from cotton. It also includes Tencel, a luxurious fabric that’s more absorbent than cotton and softer than silk. It’s also cooler than linen, aiding in the cooling technology you’re sure to notice.
First Impression & Overnight Test (Firmness, Feel, & Support)
My first impression was that it looked great on my bed frame without any linen. Once I got my bed set up, I took a seat on the edge of the bed to see how supportive the edges were. While they were still soft, as would be expected in a foam design, I didn’t feel like I was going to slide off. I sometimes find myself rolling towards the edge of the bed at night and wake up because my body notices shifting. But when this happened, I was still able to make myself comfortable.
The firmness is medium to firm. It’s not rock hard but you won’t feel like you’re sinking into the bed either. Of course, firmness is affected by your weight so the heavier you are makes all the difference and supports all body types and weights.
Sinkage, Motion Transfer, & Temperature
You will notice a bit of sinkage during your Nectar mattress review. However, if you’re concerned about deep sinkage or indentations overtime, the Lifetime warranty on the mattress will leave you feeling confident. If your mattress has a permanent indentation of 1.5” or more, your mattress will be replaced.
There is very little motion transfer in the Nectar mattress. I did notice during my Nectar mattress review that there is a little more bounce to this mattress compared to other foam mattresses.
There are several cooling features built into the Nectar. The first that you’ll notice when conducting your own Nectar mattress review is that the cover is designed to allow air to flow freely in and out of the mattress. This prevents heat from being trapped beneath you. The top layers also have cooling gel and properties built in. During my Nectar mattress review, I remained cool and comfortable every single night.
Firmness and support
The Nectar mattress has been rated as a 6 on a scale of 1-10, with 1 being incredibly soft and 10 being rock hard. This is a common desired firmness level and you can adjust your firmness by rearranging the foam layers. However, I never felt the need to do this during my Nectar mattress review because I enjoyed the firmness level. I’m not sure how difficult it would be to do so.
The possible biggest selling feature is its extra-long trial period and extended warranty. I almost didn’t believe this but the company really stands by their product. Their brand also features great cooling technology, quality materials, and superior customer service. For example, the company will replace your cover for free when you’re ready for one.
How Does It Compare?
While these are all great options, none include an extra-long sleep trial or lifetime warranty like the one I have test run. If you’re spending your hard-earned money on a sleeping surface you like, it’s reassuring to know that your investment will be protected.
If you’re looking for a luxurious product that’s affordable and is as risk free as they come, the design I slept on, with its superior materials, quality design, and unbelievable trial period and return policy, a was never a bad idea. Check out our other mattress reviews.
