This review was posted in 2015 but I have updated it after reviewing the new 2016 model of the Alexander Signature select. Both models were given to me free by Nest Bedding. There have been some great improvements with the 2016 model one of the most notable is that the cover is made with a phase change technology that adapts to your body heat to keep you cool at night.
Nest bedding is still my favorite mattress company. 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 Love Bed which is really saying something because they set the bar high with that mattress.
Purchasing & Unboxing
I recently received the Nest Alexander Signature Select mattress from Nest Bedding to review. The Alexander Mattress comes in a nondescript box which is just fine by me. As I’ve said before, if money is going into making a fancy box, that’s less money going into a quality mattress. Purchasing the Alexander 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 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’s the locations of all the Nest Bedding stores:
367 9th St, San Francisco, CA
835 San Pablo Ave., Albany, CA
1049 El Monte Ave, Mountain View, CA
1512 Montana Ave, Santa Monica, California, 90403
Studio City/Los Angeles
12319 Ventura Blvd., Studio City, CA
New York City
196 Bowery, NYC 10012

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!
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 he overall lifespan of the 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.
2″ of 4lb. Gel memory foam
2″ of 4lb. Visco Foam
3″ of Smartfow Air Flow Foam
The Alexander Mattress is so far my favorite mattress. As you can see, this is a very substantial mattress. It is listed as being 12.5 inches in height.
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.
Below is a video that illustrates heat retention on the mattress
If you are in the market for pressure relief without getting stuck, get this mattress It does an amazing job with both. Please note that I receive a small compensation when you purchase from my links. It’s how I’m able to keep the site going.

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 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.
