Nectar Mattress is the mattress that I am sleeping on right now and it also happens to be one of the most talked about ship to door mattresses currently as well. You’ve probably seen their online ads or heard their customers boasting about it being one of the most comfortable mattresses that they have ever slept on. Since I’ve had plenty of experience with this mattress brand today I am going to go over the specifications of the mattress, the pros, and cons, and conclude with whether I feel that it is the most comfortable mattress.

About Nectar

Since we spend about 1/3 of our lives in bed, it’s important to have a mattress that fits your sleeping needs. Nectar divides their mattress into 5 layers to make sure it checks as many of your boxes as possible.

The Five Layers of the Nectar Mattress

  • Tencel Cooling Cover – This cover makes sure that you don’t overheat while sleeping and it is also resistant to bed bugs.
  • Quilted Gel Memory Foam – This layer helps with air circulation and helps your body contour to the mattress.
  • Gel Memory Foam – This layer ensures that weight is distributed evenly.
  • Adaptive HI Core Memory Foam – This controls the amount of bounce that you feel.
  • Breathing Base Layer – This is the stable foundation, which makes it possible to use this mattress without a box spring.

Pros of Nectar Mattress

  • Ships to Your Door
  • Easy to Get Setup
  • Includes 2 Pillows
  • Reasonably Priced
  • 365 Night Sleep Trial
  • Lifetime Warranty

Cons of Nectar Mattress

  • Has an odor when first unboxed

Unboxing Nectar Mattress

When I’m trying products for the first time I avoid doing any research on them as far as looking at other’s opinions and watching videos about the item to avoid becoming biased before trying it myself. Therefore, I was surprised that Nectar arrived in a bag instead of a box.

It took me about 20-25 minutes to get the mattress set up, which is a little longer than it normally takes. This could have been because the mattress was in a bag, which was kind of hard to get off, and then you must take it out of the duffle, which was cool, before getting to the actual opening of the mattress.

I’m a little confused as to why the duffle and an additional bag was needed, but the unboxing experience wasn’t too bad at all.

My Review of the Nectar Mattress

I can really see what all the hype surrounding Nectar is about. I have tried other mattresses and so far, my first memory foam mattress has remained my favorite, but Nectar has now gotten the #1 spot on my list.

The only negative aspect of the mattress is when it’s first unboxed it has a strange odor that lasts for about 48 hours. Other than that, I have nothing negative to say. Plus, they warn you about the smell once you get the paperwork inside of the mattress.

I’m not the only one who has positive things to say about the Nectar mattress either. Mattress Matchers gives Nectar a 9.4-star rating.

How it Feels

As you can see from my video, when I first got the mattress set up I felt that the pillows were firm and the mattress was extremely soft. However, once it had been sitting for a few hours it firmed up a bit (not overly firm), and is now the perfect combination of softness and firmness.

The best part is while you’re sleeping if you’re tossing and turning or up and down from bed you don’t affect your partners sleeping – they feel nothing and vice versa.

The mattress does contour to your body, but when you get up it immediately pops into place.

Overall, it has been giving me some comfortable sleep. Once I’m sleeping, I sleep until my alarm goes off in the morning.

Who Would I Recommend the Nectar Mattress To

I would recommend the Nectar Mattress to anyone who wants to experience the most comfortable sleep imaginable. Out of all the mattresses, I have tried to date this one is the most comfortable mattress ever.

It is ideal for children, couples, and singles.

Trust me, I tried to find some cons to list, but other than the odor upon unboxing there are none.

Does the Nectar Mattress sound like the most comfortable mattress to you?

    A must try mattress for me. Sounds really comfy to sleep at!

  2. My mother in law says when things don’t smell or taste good, even though they’re meant to be good, it just means it’s gonna do a better job. This looks so great and comfy.

  3. Fatima Torres says:

    This bed looks very comfortable. I like that it has a cooling component as well. Perfect for summer nights.

  4. Keki Cannon says:

    I have not heard of them but we are in the market for a new one so I will check it out. Thanks for the tip

  5. My kids both need new mattresses. I should check Nectar out. I love how small and compact it is when it arrives. That is impressive. Looks like a great product.

  6. I wish I had heard of the these mattresses when I purchase ours. I might have made a different choice. I will keep my eyes open the next time.

  7. We are actually planning to get our son a new mattress so we’ll check this this one. Thank you for sharing your experience.

  8. I wish that we would have given Nectar a try. We bought a Temperpedic a little over a year ago and my husband wishes we got the softer one. I had to get a better mattress to support my back.

  9. Cindy Ingalls says:

    This mattress does sound incredibly comfortable. I’ve tried one of the order online mattresses and it wasn’t that comfortable so I’ve been hesitant to give another one a try. But I really like that Nectar conforms to your body which means it’s a more personal sleeping experience.

  10. I love the idea of not having to go out mattress shopping and get it delivered to me instead! This sounds like a great option and one I’ll definitely consider when we need a new mattress.

    I love to use a good mattress. Sleeping good is so important to look fresh and be full of energy!

  12. This mattress looks so comfortable. I really need to invest in a worthwhile mattress.

  13. Yes! It is the most comfortable mattress! I have one! Well, it is actually my daughter’s mattress, but when she is away at college, I have to admit that when hubby’s snoring wakes me in the middle of the night, I find it a good excuse to sleep in her bed. She and I both swear it is the best bed EVER! No regrets!

  14. If anyone is looking to upgrade their mattress, I would recommend people to look into Nectar. Your review covered several positive aspects for what to look for in a mattress.

  15. Jeanine says:

    I have a nectar and LOVE it. Way better than my old traditional that was a pillow top and super expensive!

  16. This sounds like a pretty high-tech mattress with all the layers and thought that was put into this. The next time I need a new mattress I will check this out.

  17. Ronnie says:

    I’ve heard about the brand before but I haven’t had the guts yet to buy a mattress I haven’t first ‘sampled’ at a store. Do you know if there’s anywhere to try it out first?

    1. admin says:


      It comes with the trial. That way you can try it out at home for an extended period and if it doesn’t work for you then you return it for a full refund.

  18. I think this sounds like an excellent mattress. My husband and I both love memory foam, and we can’t sleep on anything else.

  19. Gemille Sleweon says:

    This seems like a very comfortable mattress. I always say i have to get my mattresses just a bit uncomfortable so i can actually get up in the morning lol.

  20. I love so much about what you said about this mattress. We are definitely due for some new ones around here.

  21. Joely Smith says:

    Slipping off the edge would bother me too. I am already a clutz lol. I could totally see myself falling off. Then again I guess that is not what we are supposed to use our mattress for anyway right? It sounds comfy though for actual sleeping.

  22. What a great sounding mattress, it can be so hard to find the right one for you. we are so all different. But this sounds like the perfect mix of soft and firm, perfect for so many people.

  23. Girl, you the go-to person when it comes to mattresses! This one seems great and comfy. I like how it’s easy to take out the bag and place on a bed frame.


    1. Lou,

      These days I sure am feeling like it. I am really in love with this mattress though and the pillows. Since its went on it hasn’t come off.

  24. Sounds comfortable. Boy, you’ve been getting a lot of mattresses lately. I could use one for my older kids when they come home.

    1. Stacie,

      I know right. I’m going to be an expert on sleeping soon lol.

  25. Wow, great review, and we need a new mattress – will have hubby take a look and see if it’s worth the investement. #ProductReviewParty

  26. I really need a new mattress. It’s next on my list of things to buy this year. This one sounds like a dream, I’m going to check into it more and see if it’s something I can afford.

  27. I must say that you did a great job in reviewing this mattress. It is very honest and very detailed. Reading your post makes me consider this mattress too. The price is not bad as long as quality is there.

  28. At first glance with the lines it doesn’t look comfortable, but that was with the close up photo. They photo at the end looks really comfy. I love that it has a cooking cover and has memory foam. Looks like a good one especially for guests.

    1. Hi Tina,

      I think the lines are just a part of their design. You definitely don’t feel them when laying down.

  29. My husband and I was just talking about getting a new mattress. This looks so comfy too!

  30. We are in need of new mattress so I would love to learn more about this brand. I love that it came with a duffel bag.

  31. Annemarie LeBlanc says:

    The price is not bad at all. Honestly, this is the first time I have heard about this mattress. I will keep this in mind if and when we would need to have a mattress in the house replaced. Thank you for your honest review.

  32. Debra Hawkins says:

    I hadn’t heard of this mattress yet! I really want a new and wonderful new mattress and I think this just might be it. It looks absolutely incredible!

  33. Your new mattress looks super comfy. Hubby and I recently bought a new mattress. OMG, what a difference from our old mattress.

  34. This mattress sounds incredible. We need to replace ours, my boyfriend already had this one when I moved in. I would love a memory foam. It sounds cozy.

  35. Sandy Faye Outler Mathis says:

    I would love to have one of these mattresses! I have had so many orthopedic surgeries that I need a very good mattress to be comfortable!

  36. This sounds like it would be a great choice of mattress and the shipping to your door would be pretty convenient. I’m liking the sound of those layers!

  37. This Nectar mattress truly looks like a great option, I know we need a new option here as my back is over the one we have plus the boys could use one too! I will have to look into buying this Nectar one!

  38. I loved our mattress when we bought it, but it’s about time for an upgrade. We need a king size. I will definitely check out Nectar mattresses.

  39. Jaime Nicole says:

    That’s really interesting how it firmed up after sitting for a while! I will definitely check this out when it’s time for a new mattress!

  40. Ruth I. says:

    Sleep is my problem. I suffer from insomnia and rarely gets a good 6-8 hour sleep at night. I think I need this kind of mattress. It looks really comfortable.

  41. Thanks for this review. I was looking at a new mattress and was having a hard time with all the new ones I’ve been seeing. This definitely helps.

  42. This is the first I am hearing of Nectar mattresses, but they sound fantastic! Love that year long trial period and the cooling cover is much needed here in our desert climate.

  43. I haven’t actually heard of Nectar before. We have a popular expensive brand that is only a few years old that is awful! We were thinking of looking into a mattress like this, but was sort of skeptical. I will definitely have to look more into it.

  44. What a great sounding mattress and I am loving the look of those pillows as well – I am all for managing to find a more comfortable way to sleep. I’ll have to look into Nectar.

  45. You mentioned easy to set up and fairly quick to set up. Didn’t realize it was shipped to you. Totally new type of mattress from what we are use too using
