Nectar Mattress is a new memory foam mattress company that is upping the free trial ante with a 365 day free trial period. This more than triples the length of many of the online mattress company trial periods. With the Nectar mattress you get to sleep on it for a whole year before deciding if it’s right for you. That means you get to experience through all four seasons. Aside from the amazing trial period, the Nectar mattress just feels great. It has dense top foam layer along with a phase change ticking that has cooling gel quilted into it. The Nectar mattress isn’t just another typical foam mattress, it has some significant advantages over the competitors.

This mattress is truly versatile enough to accommodate any sleeping position. It is firm enough for stomach and back sleepers for lower back support but also conforms for side sleepers.

Nectar Bed Overview

Here’s a video of me speaking about some of the great features of the Nectar Mattress. What you’ll notice immediately is the quilted cover. Nectar stitches memory foam into the cover of the mattress for a very unique feel.

Below is a brochure that comes with the Nectar mattress that explains the generous trial period. Again, it’s a 365 night trial period which so far is unheard of in the industry.

What is also interesting is that you can finance this mattress with no credit check required with no interest financing. Here are the details from their site:

Owning NECTAR is easy with NECTAR’s No Credit required 6-month no-interest financing plan.
You only need the following to order NECTAR today –

  • A source of income, and this does not need to be a job
  • A credit card or debit card to make the low initial and monthly payments

No credit checks required and approval is instant
You will enjoy Nectar immediately and own Nectar outright on the day of your final payment

  • You can buyout your payment schedule at any time after 90 days

For people that don’t want to settle for a mediocre mattress, the Nectar is competitively priced but since they also add financing it makes it even more accessible.


Here’s how the Nectar Mattress is made:

  • 1″ Top Comfort Layer – The cover is made of Tencel fiber which is a soft and very breathable material. It sleeps cooler than cotton and helps wick away moisture.
  • 1″ Support Layer –  Underneath that is a quilted 4lb. cooling gel foam layer which is something unique to the Nectar mattress. It give the mattress a unique feel and provides great pressure relief.
  • 3″ Transition Layer – The fourth layer is what they call Hi Core Memory Foam. This is a dense foam that also is great for pressure relief.
  • 6″ Foundation Layer – This is a standard base layer similar to most other memory foam mattresses but is essential for providing good support.

Here are some preliminary shots of the Nectar mattress:

The Nectar mattress will slowly cradle you. Here’s a picture of my 14 lb. bowling ball on the Nectar mattress:


I also took off the cover to show you the inside of the Nectar mattress and how it responds. This is one of the best mattresses you can get for pressure relief. Notice that it recovers slowly. The negative here is that changing positions will be a little more difficult but the positive is that I don’t think you will need to change positions at night because of how well the mattress conforms.

Here’s a video of the quilted cover of the Nectar mattress. This is what really sets it apart. It is a dense foam layer quilted into the covering. Quilting foam into the mattress costs more from a manufacturing standpoint but it is well worth it. I haven’t felt anything quite like this before.

Below is a video illustrating heat retention on the Nectar mattress. I was surprised at the result. Given this has a gel memory foam quilted into the cover, I expected much more heat retention. The reason it performed so well is that the cover is made with a Tencel fiber that is much more breathable than cotton. Added to that is a phase change material that draws heat away. Other ultra-dense foam mattresses I have tested don’t come close to the Nectar in terms of drawing away heat.

You don’t need to worry about waking up your partner at night. There’s virtually no motion transfer with this mattress. Check out the video below. Keep in mind, if your partner tosses and turns at night, this will affect your quality of sleep as well. The Nectar can help eliminate this issue.


For the money, this is one of the best dense foam mattresses I have tried. It is made in China but I didn’t notice any major off-gassing. It is also Certipur Certified so it is tested to be free of any harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde. This mattress is extremely comfortable and I love how it conforms so well to your body. A big complaint of dense foam mattresses is that they sleep hot. That’s because memory foam is an insulator and the denser the foam the more it will insulate. By incorporating a phase change material into the mattress ticking and quilting cooling gel foam into the top layer, Nectar has created a very innovative and effective mattress to give you the best combinations of support, pressure relief, motion isolation and cooling.

I am very impressed with the quilted cover on the Nectar mattress. I was very surprised at how quickly it dissipated heat. A queen size Nectar retails for $795 but with the $100 off sherpa100 coupon code, it brings the price down to $695 which is substantially less than other mattresses of this quality and construction.

    I’m one week into my Nectar trial and I’m ready to send it back. I’m a side sleeper and I’m 5′-8 190lbs. I find that I’m waking up a lot more and usually my shoulder and arm are numb. It seems like a good quality mattress and I love the price, but it just doesn’t provide enough cushion for me to sleep on my side. Do you have a better recommendation for a side sleeper? Heat is also a big concern for me. Thanks

        Nectar or Purple? We’re looking for a king size. I weigh 155 and my wife weighs 125 and we both like medium – firm beds. What do you recommend?

        1. The Purple will feel firmer than the Nectar. I think both are great with support. If you sleep hot the Purple may be a better choice but if pressure relief and overall comfort are your primary concerns, I think the Nectar is the way to go.

    I love are new Nectar mattress my husband and I have it’s the Best ever and can sleep great. I don’t wake up in pain anymore. I have had back surgerys and this mattress is the best.😀

  3. Do you feel latex is better than memory foam? I have considered the ultimate dreams mattress and the novaform serafina.. and I’m unsure which to go with!?!!

    1. And I must add I’m a side sleeper and back.. so is hubs.. he has lower back pain cuz of schloliosos so I heard we should get med to firm.. but I am so unsure

    2. I found that memory foam conforms better than latex and gives better pressure relief. Latex is more resilient that foam and usually lasts longer and springs back to position instantly so those are the advantages of latex.

  4. I purchased Nectar yesterday and am looking forward to trying it out. Their website isn’t very clear as far as what base is best for the mattress. I’d like to get a platform bed with wooden slats, but need some clarification on how far apart the slats should be? Or would it be better to put down some plywood over the slats so it’s on a completely flat surface? I’ve heard doing that can cause the mattress to not breath as well and sleep warmer. Thoughts?


      1. the nectar company has told us that 1.5 inches is the farthest you can go with the slats or it voids the warranty. Always ask the company about their warranty. I also sent them a link via the chat window of a frame on amazon and they cleared it. Ours just arrived we got it free from the TV show The Talk. We are excited to set it up tonight! Thank you for your video review. 🙂 I will post an update after we have slept on it.

    I am overweight @ 280lbs my wife is about 150 lbs. Our existing mattress from Costco is a major brand but has turn into the torture bed from hell. We both have back aches every morning. Is the Nectar a good choice for us? Budget is a big deal, but getting decent sleep is becoming more important as we’re both in our 50’s. Please advise.

  6. I have ordered the Nectar Mattress at Nov 10 and I Have been told it will be shipping Nov 20. I have contacted them Nov 24 and been told due to high demand they will not be able to ship til Dec 8th, I have just contacted them to make sure it will be shipped tomorrow and been told not to be able to ship maybe till Dec 11th. It has been almost a month and I have been charged right away at Nov 10 and still have no mattress. I really do not recommend this to anyone.

  7. Yeah, I ordered 11/29/17 and had 3 (maybe 4) delays in shipping. Finally shipped this week on 01/03/18. Should be receiving it in 5 to 8 business days. Did lots more searching for a “natural” mattress while waiting for the Nectar to ship and really want the AVOCADO or HAPPSY mattress. Both are more than twice the amount of the NECTAR but are truly ALL NATURAL, using organic COTTON and WOOL. NO CHEMICALS at all. Figure I will use the Nectar and if there is any issue at all including off-gassing I will send it back and order one of these other mattresses. Would like to know if there is any information you hve on the AVOCADO and HAPPSY product.

  8. I am suspicouos of this company. I am not going to order it almost did but I am not waiting a month two months while they keep my money that is a joke and tell s me they are not a very good company you can trust.

  9. Lots of great reviews and I’m hopeful I’ll eventually be able to add my voice to reviews about the actual product. BUT . . . . potential buyers should be aware that Nectar is much more proactive on the Marketing side than they are on the Supply Chain/Customer Support/Shipping side. 3 promise dates have come and gone for me over the period of 5-6 weeks so far and Nectar provides no updates via e-mail, text, phone or otherwise. Plenty of marketing info comes in but nothing about my order.

  10. Thank you. We really want to buy a Nectar mattress and a coupon would really help us since we are both in our 70’s. I did try to purchase your mattress with a coupon and it would not let me put in my credit card info for some reason.

  11. I have been sleeping on my new Nectar for 3 weeks now and have woken up with a sore back on each night. I know it takes a while for the body to adjust to a new mattress but how long ?? Is there any difference placing the mattress on carpeted floor v/s box or frame
    I enjoy sleeping 8-9 hrs but now I am getting only 6-7.
    PS: This is my first ever memory foam mattress (I’m 30/185cm/210lb)
