Nectar Memory Foam Mattress Review

Last updated:

Nectar is one of the most popular mattress brands in America and they have successfully operated in the UK for many years. In this Nectar Memory Foam mattress review, I will talk about their best seller and whether it is an option worth getting.

Nectar launched back in 2016 and quite quickly became one of the biggest players in the US market. Although this is an American company, they design and manufacture their mattresses here in the UK. The mattress reviewed today is a rolled one and it’s designed to suit most sleepers. That means that all you have to do is choose the size that suits your needs. Nectar makes high-quality mattresses with very affordable price tags and that is a winning combination. My mattress arrived 2 weeks ago so it’s a good time to move to the full review.

Materials & Construction

This Nectar mattress is made of a total of 3 layers. These are:

  • A dynamic support layer that can distribute weight evenly. It can also keep the sleeping surface cool during the night and allow airflow.
  • A memory foam layer that regulates your body’s temperature during sleep. It also helps with pressure relief.
  • A seven-zone dense foam layer, designed specifically to provide support to your hips and shoulders. This is the base of the Nectar mattress.

In the picture below, you can have a closer look at the layers and how they are positioned.

The cover of the Nectar mattress is made of two parts. The top part is the sleeping surface and the side & bottom part pack the mattress. The cover is made of polyester, which is very breathable but at the same time, it’s very durable. It works well with your body’s thermal regulating mechanism to ensure you stay cool during the night. On the grey part of the cover, Nectar has applied some anti-slip elements that help the mattress stay in place. Moreover, it’s fire retardant and looks quite strong.

The cover feels nice, not the best I have tried, and it didn’t feel warm at any time of the night. I think it did a good job of regulating my body’s temperature overall. I would say the design is modern and most people will like it. The bad news is that you cannot machine wash the cover and Nectar advises only spot cleaning with a mild detergent. This is the only drawback here but not a big one. Overall, I think they did a good job with this cover so you won’t be disappointed.

Comfort & Support

I want to continue writing this Nectar Memory Foam mattress review and discuss its feel. This is a medium-firm mattress that will cover most people’s needs. If I use my virtual scale, I would say it’s a 6.5 with 10 being really firm. The mattress behaves like a memory foam one so those who like the ‘hugging’ feeling will like this. On the other hand, this mattress is not bouncy, so if you are looking for that, look elsewhere. I will now talk about the different sleeping positions and how this mattress performed during the past two weeks.

Starting from the back position, I instantly felt the memory foam hugging my body, particularly my shoulders and hips. It was a very comforting feeling and as a back sleeper, it was something I enjoyed. The mattress felt supportive and my spine alignment was correct.

Moving to the side position, the mattress adjusted but not as quickly as I would have wanted. Once it did I felt quite comfortable and my hips didn’t feel any discomfort. Sinkage increased and that secured a correct spine alignment. In general, I felt adequate support but nothing extraordinary in this position.

Finally, moving to the stomach position, the foam reacted again slightly slower than I would have wanted but once it did I felt well-supported in my hips area. My chest and shoulders were also well placed and I felt that the mattress did a good job here.

As for the edge support, the Nectar mattress is well-made and I felt that you get the same performance even near the edges. In addition, there is minimal motion transfer which is great news for couples. Overall, I felt that Nectar is a good all-arounder that is also suitable for couples. Having said that, side sleepers could probably find a better mattress.


The Nectar mattress comes packed in a nice carton box. It’s available in 5 sizes but unfortunately no EU ones. Hopefully, this will change at some point in the future. Delivery usually takes between 2-5 working days and it’s free for every size. Where Nectar stands out is the way they deliver mattresses. They offer a free named-day delivery service so you can have your mattress delivered based on your schedule.

In my case, it was only two days and the courier arrived on time and was very friendly. On top, if you want your old mattress removed, Nectar offers a mattress removal service that will cost you an extra £45. This is great as it’s not very easy to get rid of a mattress. Overall, I think that Nectar offers the best service I have seen and I was extremely happy with it.

Trial Period & Guarantee

The Nectar Memory Foam mattress comes with a 365-day trial period that gives you plenty of time to try it at home. It’s an actual whole year and this is something that I have never seen. If you are not happy with your mattress, all you have to do is contact them and arrange a collection. Once this happens, they will process a full refund for you. Returns are free and you don’t have to keep the original packaging.

The mattress also comes with a lifetime guarantee. Most manufacturers will give you 10 years but Nectar offers you way more than that! This shows how confident they are about their products but also how much they value their customers. Nectar offers the best trial period and guarantee and I could not ask for more here.

Nectar Memory Foam Mattress Review – The Verdict

It’s time now to finish this Nectar Memory Foam mattress review and share my final thoughts with you. Nectar is the best value-for-money mattress I have reviewed so far. Having said that, it is suited better for those who tend to sleep on their backs or stomachs and enjoy a ‘hugging’ feeling. It’s not bouncy and it behaves a lot like a traditional memory foam mattress. It’s excellent for couples as the motion transfer is minimal and it’s a very comfortable and supportive mattress. All that comes at a price that is very reasonable so if you are looking for a complete package then Nectar should be high on your list.
