Nectar's Specifics

The Nectar mattress has been a widely popular mattress since its launch in 2017. With thousands of happy customers, its popularity is well deserved with their devotion to a more affordable mattress with more benefits. Their 365 day trial and forever warranty provide peace of mind for those that worry about making the right choice. Additionally, their original Nectar mattress is extremely well-rated for its medium-firm feel. Though slightly firm when first laying down, its subtle contour resolves pressure point pain and makes it universally comfortable.

In addition to Nectar's original all-foam design, their newer Nectar Premier & Nectar Premier Copper mattresses are excellent options for those that want additional pressure point relief and also need greater cooling technology due to sleeping warm or living in warm environments.

With these three first-class models (and even newer hybrid mattress options too), Nectar continues to receive some the best customer sentiment across the internet and remains an impressive brand to consider for budget-conscious shoppers and foam mattress enthusiasts.

Quality of Materials

Nectar's primary mattress options come with all-foam designs and a traditional memory foam feel. Though its prices are quite competitive, they've selected quality foams with a focus on longevity and balanced comfort. With their full year trial period and customer reports of prompt customer service, they have done a great job standing behind their products. Using CertiPUR-US certified foams and a focus on 'budget-quality' designs, their mattresses are rated some of the best for the price.

Here is what's inside their superbly rated Nectar Mattress:

Layer 1: The breathable top layer is a cooling and heat-wicking poly-blend cover that reduces heat and provides surface comfort independent of the season.

Layer 2: 2'' of gel-infused memory foam offers added softness and comfort while keeping cool. This contour and comfort layer provides superior pressure relief by cushioning and supporting the most sensitive areas.

Layer 3: With 3'' of dynamically adjusting foam in the Dynamic Support Layer, sleepers get Nectar's tailored bounce-back feel, which provides the body with superior support and relaxation.

Layer 4: 7'' of base support foam makes up the foundational bottom of the mattress. The base layer provides stability to the mattress and ensures the comfort and support layers above it perform at their best. If you're looking for the support of a hybrid mattress, the Nectar Hybrid model comes with 8'' of pocket coils in this layer that provide responsive support while minimizing motion transfer.

Layer 5: The bottom Shift-Resistant Lower Cover keeps the mattress and its layers firmly in place night after night.

Next, we'll go through the more pressure-relieving and cooling 13'' Nectar Premier:

Layer 1: The Nectar Premier starts off with their signature quilted cover. Made with a breathable material that absorbs and wicks away excess heat, this top layer helps provide a soft and cool sleep surface.

Layer 2: 3'' of gel-infused memory foam with ActiveCool HD provides a temperature-responsive, pressure relieving refuge. Designed with phase change material that reacts to your rising and dropping body temperatures, this layer not only gives you contouring support, but also adjusts to your temperature as you sleep to keep things comfortable.

Layer 3: Similar to the Nectar Mattress, the Premier provides a tailored bounce-back with 3'' of dynamically adjusting foam in the Dynamic Support Layer. This layer provides the body with the support it needs for restful sleep.

Layer 4: The main support of this mattress comes from 7'' of durable base support foam which gives lasting support to the back and spine. For those interested in the added support of the Nectar Premier Hybrid model, this layer is replaced by 8'' of individually wrapped pocket coils that promote air flow while also providing responsive support (even at the edge of the mattress).

Layer 5: The last layer is a no-slip Shift-Resistant Lower Cover, which keeps the mattress together and balanced night after night.

Lastly, we'll go through the newer, more luxuriously plush Nectar Premier Copper:

Layer 1: The Nectar Premier Copper starts off with a breathable cover infused with cooling, heat dispelling copper fibers. The copper infusion helps stimulate muscle relaxation while keeping things cool throughout the night.

Layer 2: Next up is a 4'' gel memory foam layer with ActiveCool HD and phase-changing material. This pressure-relieving gel memory foam layer is designed to cuddle every curve and joint while responding to temperature to keep things perfectly cozy and cool.

Layer 3: Nectar provides its tailored bounce-back with 3'' of dynamically adjusting foam in the Dynamic Support Layer. With loft where the body needs it most, this layer gently adapts to the spine to facilitate superior relaxation and alignment for deeper sleep.

Layer 4: Balancing support with plush comfort, this mattress has enhanced durability with 7'' of base support foam that keeps the spine stabilized throughout the night for balanced comfort. For sleepers keen on the enhanced support of a hybrid mattress, the Nectar Premier Copper Hybrid offers an 8'' layer of individually wrapped coils that gives sleepers edge-to-edge support while reducing motion transfer.

Layer 5: The Shift-Resistant Lower Cover keeps the mattress from slipping on its base. Also, this last layer keeps the mattress well-crafted for the long term.

Overall Comfort

Nectar's mattresses are well-rounded and offer a nice blend of support and pressure relief. While the original Nectar mattress is slightly firmer, it is great for back and stomach sleepers alike (or larger side sleepers on a budget). The Premier and Premier Copper, on the other hand, are slightly softer, with a lot to offer for lighter to average sized side sleepers that are looking for something more cooling and pressure relieving.


While the Nectar mattress has a medium-firm firmness, which is a great blend of both firm support and soft pressure point relief, the Nectar Premier and Premier Copper offer more contour for side sleepers, lighter body types, and soft mattress lovers. The hybrid models will be similar in firmness to or slightly softer than their all-foam counterparts.

Back Pain Relief

Based on the firmness, these mattresses should provide back pain relief experienced by sleeping on an older mattress. There is a significant volume of customer reviewers that report feeling superior support and enhanced relaxation in the back with Nectar's mattresses. Specifically, customers are +3.2x* more likely to mention pain relief after sleeping on Nectar versus average comparable mattresses.


Due to the layers of quality gel memory foam and the enhanced cooling covers in each mattress, most customers find that these mattresses sleep cool. Nectar reviewers are +2.4x as likely to mention positive cooling than average comparable mattresses. For those that want added contour without sacrificing cooling, consider taking a look at the Nectar Premier and Premier Copper offerings.

Nectar's generous trial policy and amazing reception from customers and reviewers makes this company a must-consider for mattress shoppers.
