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.

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

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.

Construction

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.

Findings

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 is 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 hit 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.

Conclusion

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.
