Nest Bedding is one of my favorite mattress companies. That’s because they provide amazing products at great prices. In this review, I test out the Alexander Signature Select mattress from Nest Bedding. This bed is a significant step up from the vast majority of online mattress brands. Nest is one of the few companies started by a mattress industry veteran and true mattress craftsman, Joe Alexander. His dedication to making quality affordable mattresses really shows in the Nest Signature.
Purchasing & Unboxing The Nest Bedding Signature Flippable Mattress
I recently received the Nest Alexander Signature Select (medium) mattress from Nest Bedding to review. The Nest Bedding Signature mattress comes in a box like the one below with the Nest branding.
Purchasing the Nest Signature Mattress is super easy, just like the big-name competitors. You simply place your order through their website and the mattress will arrive at your doorstep in about a week or less. Shipping is also completely free.
If you happen to live in California you are probably close to a Nest Bedding showroom where you can try one out in person. They recently launched a showroom in New York City. Here are the locations of all the Nest Bedding stores:
367 9th St, San Francisco, CA
835 San Pablo Ave., Albany, CA
1719 N Damen Ave
Chicago, IL 60647
1512 Montana Ave, Santa Monica, California, 90403

New York City
196 Bowery, NYC 10012
Try out the Alexander at the Sleep Sherpa Showroom

How Much Does the Nest Signature Flippable Cost?
Below are the current prices before applying the 8% discount.
When unboxing the mattress, you will notice that it is NOT folded in half. Why does this matter? It matters because folding the mattress on itself and compressing it can cause unnecessary stress and may affect the overall lifespan of the mattress.Since Nest is a relatively small company in comparison to some of the other players in the mattress industry, they are very responsive and can make sure you get the right bed for your needs. Don’t be surprised to get an email response from Joe, quickly. Nest is known for their dedicated customer service. Not only are they responsive but they know their product and will be able to effectively address any questions you have.
Construction of the Nest Bedding Flippable Mattress
You can choose from 3 levels of firmness which is another distinguishing feature of Nest Bedding that sets the Alexander Signature Select apart from the likes of the one mattress for all model.
Nest Flippable Construction
15 ILD CoolFlow™ Plush Quilting Foam & Organic Cotton Cover
1.8 lb. 10 ILD Copper Infused Memory Gel Foam
1.5 lb. 14 ILD Energex Foam
3.5 lb. 30 ILD Transitional Foam

The Alexander Mattress is so far my favorite mattress. As you can see, this is a very substantial mattress.
My Nest Bedding Signature Flippable Mattress Findings
The Alexander Signature Select mattress also has very little motion transfer. This is right up there with top of the line memory foam mattresses in terms of motion transfer. But what makes this mattress better is that you don’t get that stuck in the mud feeling. You sink in just enough and the mattress recovers very rapidly.
All these tests are done on a medium firmness mattress. You can extrapolate how a firm and soft would sink in from this picture. This mattress has just the right amount of sink for me. My wife also found this mattress to be a little softer than the Love Bed which she preferred. That said, this bed is more accommodating to various sleep preferences than most of the other beds I have reviewed.

My Nest Bedding Signature Flippable Recommendation
I have been a big fan of Nest Bedding since starting Sleep Sherpa and they continue to provide quality mattresses at a competitive price. This mattress is really two mattresses in one and chances are you are going to love it. If not, you’re backed by their 100 Night Trial and lifetime comfort guarantee where after the trial has expired, you can still return it and buy a different mattress from Nest at half price.
The Alexander Signature Select mattress from Nest Bedding is at the top of the Sleep Sherpa mattress heap. I haven’t slept on a better bed so far. This is the first mattress where my wife and I are equally satisfied. The medium level of firmness is quite soft and if you are on the fence between a soft and a medium, go with the medium. You won’t be disappointed.
Nest Alexander Trial Period and Nest Bedding Comfort Guarantee
Nest has one of the best trial periods in the industry. They give you 101 days to try out their mattress in the comfort of your home. If for whatever reason you don’t like it, they will take it back and give you a full refund.
Beyond that, Nest offers an industry leading Lifetime Comfort Guarantee. Here are the highlights of this program. More details can be found here.
Our Industry First Lifetime Comfort Guarantee© affords the original purchaser of any Nest Bedding mattress the peace of mind of knowing Nest Bedding cares about your comfort for the lifetime of your mattress. Here is how it works:
1. During the first 100 nights of ownership from date of delivery, you (the original purchaser) may initiate an exchange or return of your mattress for any comfort issue, for a 100% money back guarantee, or exchange to any other bed in our lineup. Please remember that it can take a few weeks to adjust to any new mattress so we kindly ask that you give the bed a full 30 nights trial before contacting us about exchanging or returning.
2. After the 100 night’s trial, for the remaining lifetime of the mattress, if your needs change and you find you need a firmer or softer mattress, or you need to change to a small or larger size than your original purchase, you may do so at 50% of the current retail price.
In conclusion, Nest Bedding has continued to outperform the majority of online mattress companies because they focus on continuous improvement. They are constantly upgrading their products to have the best technology along with the best customer service. When you rest with Nest, you get the best!
