Nectar, Resident’s memory foam mattress brand, has been around only since 2017. Yet, it has already served restful sleep to over 300,000 people. The manufacturer’s philosophy is affordable comfort: beds made with premium materials sold at competitive prices. And it makes sure that comes through when customers dive into their Nectar Mattress.

Five layers of base, foams, and cover complete this product’s design. A solid base and a soft surface, with a touch of bounce, allow first-time and veteran users of memory foam alike to feel support and relief.

This memory foam mattress is wrapped in a plastic layer, rolled, and then kept inside a bag. Then, it is shipped in a box that can fit through door frames. So unlike traditional mattresses, this one can be wheeled into the house and set up in the bedroom without requiring a lot of muscle power. There are 5 dimensions to choose from: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and Cal King.

Why Should You Sleep On A Nectar Mattress?

Several factors affect sleep quality. Four of these are addressed by the Nectar Mattress: contouring and comfort, firmness, durability, and temperature. These are big considerations for most buyers. So dig in to find out how this brand fares.

Contouring and Comfort

Memory foams allow the body to mold into the bed. They’re designed to recover their shape when the people using them (and their pets) get up. Some prefer them over spring mattresses because of their softness; others like them instead of latex foams because of their sinkage. All 5 layers of the Nectar memory foam mattress work together to balance all these characteristics that ultimately affect sleep comfort.

  • Breathable Base Layer – a compact yet breathable base that provides support to the memory foam.
  • Adaptive Hi Core Memory Foam – a recovery foam that is built into the Nectar Mattress to prevent sinkage and instead promote contouring to your pressure points.
  • Gel Memory Foam – a patented premium gel foam, Lush Foam™, that absorbs and distributes heat.
  • Quilted Gel Memory Foam – a quilted layer of the brand’s gel memory foam that is expensive to make but necessary for providing loft and increasing air circulation.
  • Tencel Cooling Cover – a quilted top layer that draws away heat and circulates fresh air.


This refers to how firm or soft the mattress feels. Firmness is subjective as its definition depends on the person experiencing it. Body type, size, and weight also affect one’s preference for a firmer or softer foam. However, there is a standard used for beds that helps consumers decide which model is best for them.

Nectar Mattress, for instance, is medium firm. This means it falls within levels 5.5 to 7.5, which is the range determined to provide universal comfort. Level 8 is usually reserved for sleepers on the heavier side. While 3 to 6 can be too soft for all kinds of sleepers except side sleepers. The lowest score is 1 and the highest, 10.


As it is, memory foams are known to last longer than innerspring mattresses. But what makes Nectar so sure its mattress will be the last you’ll buy? As you read on, you will learn about the 365-day trial and forever warranty that come with a Nectar Mattress purchase. This shows the maker is confident that its product will conquer the usual wear-and-tear.

Part of the reason is the craftsmanship that goes into its production. It has sought the best manufacturers of premium materials around the world. The foams meet the standards of CertiPUR-US® while the Tencel natural fiber cover is certified by OEKO-TEX®. These are all tested several times during the production process. Every mattress is inspected before it leaves the factory.

Temperature Control

Memory foam mattresses have a reputation for “sleeping hot”. However, the design and materials of the Nectar Mattress prevent it from having the same effect. The surface is covered with Tencel, a fabric made of tiny fibers that wick moisture away from the skin. The polyfoam structure allows air to circulate. The memory gel foam and the touch of bounce also contribute to the mattress “sleeping cool”.

Because of this temperature control technology, your body does not overheat while you sleep. It maintains the proper temperature so that you can rest well at night or whenever you need to.

What Incentives Does Nectar Offer Owner?

The Nectar Mattress has some extra features that may help convince you to try it. It’s not just a bed-in-a-box model that you’re getting during delivery. There also are incentives to look forward to, such as free shipping and access to Nectar’s customer service.

Risk-Free Trial Period

Unlike when you buy a bed the traditional way, the Nectar way is risk-free. Nectar prides itself with the longest trial in the industry. That means you can test out the mattress for 365 days or one year. At the same time, you get to keep your old mattress instead of having it dispatched when the new one arrives.

If you think the Nectar Mattress is not right for you, you are free to return it. The company will even assist you in donating it to charity.

To make the most out of your trial period, Nectar suggests you test for the following situations:

  • Throughout the four seasons: winter, spring, summer, and fall
  • When it’s hot, humid, and still
  • When it’s cold, dry, and drafty
  • When you’ve been working late
  • When you have to work early
  • When you’re achy and exhausted
  • When your partner is tossing and turning
  • When your kid(s) can’t sleep
  • When your dog(s) can’t sleep
  • When you need a midday nap
  • When you want to sleep in till noon

Forever Warranty

You read that right. The Forever Warranty lasts, well, forever. You are covered for as long as you own the mattress. This ties back to the confidence that Nectar has in its product. However, the warranty is applicable only to the original purchaser. So if someone is planning to buy you a Nectar Mattress, you might as well ask them to make the purchase in your name.

Support for All Sleeper Types

Stomach sleepers are not advised to use memory foams. Or should at least look for one that sinks in just right. The Nectar Mattress belongs in the second category. Its contouring technology supports stomach sleepers, as well as side and back sleepers. Even those who shift to multiple positions will always be on sleep mode when lying on this mattress.

Compatibility With All Bed Types

The Nectar Mattress is advertised to fit the base or bed frame that you have. This is true for as long as the foundation can carry any of the 5 dimensions in which the mattress is available:

  • Twin – 39” x 75” x 11” & 45 lbs
  • Twin XL – 39” x 80” x 11” & 48 lbs
  • Full – 54” x 75” x 11” & 68 lbs
  • Queen – 60” x 80” x 11” & 74 lbs
  • King – 76” x 80” x 11” & 89 lbs
  • Cal King – 72” x 84” x 11” & 89 lbs

The typical bed types are as follows:

  • Traditional frames
  • Adjustable
  • Box springs
  • Divan bases
  • Platforms

By the way, if you’re also shopping bases or bed frames, Nectar has them too!

Why Should I Not Buy A Nectar Mattress?

Your personal preferences and needs may be the top reason you’ll skip the Nectar Mattress. Although it’s designed for all sleeper types, stomach sleepers on the lighter side may find themselves sinking into the memory foam.

If you or a bed partner tends to fall off the bed, it also helps to know that the Nectar Mattress has weak edge support.

Real Customer Reviews

A customer named JJ wrote:


This mattress is so comfortable! I really can’t get over it. We bought it when we moved to our new house. It was perfect timing as it came in the exact day that we moved in. My wife was stressed at the idea of shopping for a mattress in person so being able to do everything online made it super easy. Delivery was quick and setup was incredibly easy. We bought a King. It’s a really comfy bed – not too firm, not too soft. I appreciate that it comes with a nice cover. Lastly, company communication has been great.

And here is Anthony, who shared his testimonial in a video:

With our old mattress, you have to get into that sleep mode, you know. Turn on the side, put the pillow here, tuck your arm here, and nobody move, nobody says anything because this is the position I’ve gotta fall asleep in. Nectar, I mean literally, we kind of joke that we hit the mattress and we’re out. For the first time in a very long time, I can honestly say I wake up like I slept.

The Verdict

The polyfoam technology that makes up the most part of the Nectar Mattress allows it to stand out. Aside from having the comfort, contouring, and coolness factors, it does not compromise on the material quality. Getting a lot of value at an affordable price is such a good deal for consumers. The product starts at $399 (twin bed, no add-ons).

Also, the 365-day trial period is a win for the buyer. You have the freedom to test out the mattress for a year. Nectar shoulders the burden to prove its usability and durability, and it does so sweetly. You can’t help but think the company is confident about its creation. And so far, return cases have been rare.

Lastly, Nectar is a young brand. But it’s already become popular among mattress shoppers because of its high quality delivered at competitive prices. You’ll be hard-pressed to find such fine craftsmanship within its price point.
