Shopping for Nectar Mattresses: Everything You Need to Know

by Bill Welles

Buying a mattress is a big decision. It's a product that you’ll utilize for 10 or more years, and it’s oftentimes the most important component of any bedroom design. You're not just investing in a mattress; you’re also investing in better sleep.

Much like exercise and a proper diet, purchasing a quality mattress and establishing a healthy sleep routine can go a long way in improving your quality of life. It seems simple enough, but a mattress is one of those necessary items that make a big difference in our overall mood, energy, productivity, and health.

Shopping for a new mattress can feel like an overwhelming and impossible task, but at Mattress Land, we make it easy to find the right mattress to suit your comfort level and body type. We carry products from some of the leading names in the mattress industry, so you can count on comfort, quality, and a full eight hours of sleep each night.

In this mattress buying guide, we’re highlighting everything you need to know about Nectar Mattresses. If you’re ready to upgrade your old, dusty mattress, grab a blanket and a pillow and follow along with us.

Why Should I Shop for a Nectar Mattress?

There are many reasons why you might shop for a new mattress, but we narrowed down the top four:

  1. Back pain: Your mattress could be applying pressure in the wrong places or you could be sinking too far into the mattress.
  2. Deterioration: A mattress wears out over time. If you feel certain areas of the mattress starting to sag, if you disrupt your sleep partner when you move around, or you wake up with stiff and aching joints, these are signs you’re ready to upgrade your mattress.
  3. Moving: Mattresses are heavy and difficult to transport. If you don’t have two or more people or your neighbors' truck, sometimes, it’s easier to buy a new mattress once you get settled in.
  4. Need a bigger size: If you start sharing the bed with your children or upgrade to the master bedroom, you’ll probably need a larger mattress to go with it. 

How to Choose a Nectar Mattress

How do you know which foundation or mattress type is best for you? First and foremost, decide what kind of sleeper you are—back, side, stomach, fetal, or a combination of multiple sleep types. Then, conduct your research and consider the following factors:

  • Construction type
  • Quality of materials
  • Support/firmness level
  • Durability
  • Budget
  • Mattress size

What is Nectar all About?

Nectar isn’t your typical bed-in-a-box brand—a Nectar mattress like this Nectar Gel Memory Foam Mattress features a high-quality gel memory foam with a five-layer construction that contours and supports your body no matter what sleep position you prefer.

Whether you sleep on your back, stomach, or your side, Nectar will give you the comfort, support, and breathability you need for restful sleep. Each of the five layers provides a unique design and fully supportive sleep system that gently cradles you into position so you sleep just as well on night 1,000 as you would on night one.

The five layers that make up a Nectar mattress are:

  1. Tencel Cooling Cover: Helps circulate air and wick away heat while you sleep.
  2. Quilted Gel Memory Foam: Contours perfectly to your body while providing additional loft and increased air circulation.
  3. Gel Memory Foam: Distributes your weight evenly, offering cool, contouring support.
  4. Adaptive Hi Core Memory Foam: Supports your body, providing crucial rebound and bounce.
  5. Breathable Base Layer: Reinforces the contouring and supportive layers, giving you a stable, breathable foundation.

A Nectar mattress is described as a medium-firm mattress that is neither too soft nor too firm, so there is an ideal feel and comfort level for any type of sleeper. Nectar’s foams also meet CertiPUR-US standards for material, emissions, and durability, which means their mattresses are free from ozone depleters, PBDEs, TDCPP, mercury, or lead.

Nectar’s memory foam has increased in popularity over the years because it provides a snug contour that remains in place even after pressure is reduced. It’s a viscoelastic material that reacts to pressure and heat, thus efficiently adjusting to the sleeper’s body while providing optimum comfort and pressure relief.

Where to Buy Nectar Mattresses

When it comes to buying a mattress, you have two main options: buying online or buying in-person at one of our store locations. Each method has its pros and cons, so let’s take a quick look at both shopping methods.

Pros: Buying a mattress from a store:

  • The ability to see and feel the bed for yourself.
  • The option to compare brands, features, and price points under one location.
  • Can easily communicate with a team member to ask questions.
  • The chance to discover your BedFit sleep report.

Cons: Buying a mattress from a store:

  • Testing a bed in public (can be uncomfortable and unhygienic at certain discount stores)
  • Shorter period to test the comfort and durability.
  • Doesn’t always simulate a true sleep environment.

Pros: Buying a mattress online:

  • Shopping online can oftentimes be a cheaper option.
  • The ability to browse as many selections as you desire.
  • Read reviews and compare prices at your own pace.
  • Often longer trial periods to test real-world comfort (Nectar provides every sleeper a full 365 days to try their new mattress to determine if it’s a perfect fit).

Cons: Buying a mattress online:

  • Won’t get to touch and feel the mattress before you buy it.
  • Online returns if you are not satisfied.
  • No in-person assistance or price negotiation.
  • No old-mattress haul away

It’s different for every shopper, so it truly comes down to preference. You can typically find a similar selection of mattresses both online and in-person, so shop around and determine which method best suits you.

What to Consider Before Purchasing a Nectar Mattress

Once you know the exact mattress that you want, it’s time to get dive into the nitty-gritty details. To ensure you’re making a confident and well-informed decision, keep these three considerations top of mind:

  1. Trial period: Testing a mattress night-after-night is the only way to know if it’s comfy, and Nectar offers the longest home trial in the industry. As we mentioned, you’re able to test any Nectar mattress for a full 365 sleeps. If for any reason you are unsatisfied with the product or the mattress is not what you expected, you can return it at any time.
  2. Reviews: As you would for any other major purchase, be diligent and read reviews written by others. You may be pleasantly surprised to find someone with similar neck or shoulder pain found a solution with a certain mattress type. You can compare stories and examine how different types of mattresses may have helped a particular sleep condition.
  3. Warranty: Make sure that what you buy is what you get. You don’t want to invest in a new mattress only to replace it a year later. Nectar stands behind its product with a Forever Warranty, offering to replace any mattress within 10 years of purchase if it has any defects in materials or workmanship, and they will happily cover any transportation costs involved.
