Becky's Thoughts On The Nectar Memory Foam Mattress

Overview Of The Nectar Mattress

This is a very impressive mattress from Nectar, and their first foray into the mattress segment, arriving later than many of the other big bed-in-a-box retailers. However, last in has given them some time to take stock of the market and build something quite special. The Nectar Mattress provides good-all round support that, so far at least, looks like it will stand the test of time. We’ve had less time than others to trial this mattress long term however, general long term reviews accumulated elsewhere suggest it will perform well for the 7 year average that people will typically hold onto this product. Some of the impressive qualities for this mattress lie in it being so breathable, something that is often rare for a full foam product and not something we typically see in this segment of the market. The Nectar Mattress is also very good at preventing movement from transference and movement from one side of the bed to the other.

What Is Inside The Nectar Mattress?

The Nectar Mattress itself is made entirely of foam with memory foam being it’s primary layer for comfort. It has a 16cm foam core, on top of which we have two layers of memory foam. This means the mattress is not turnable and you do have a top and a bottom so when unrolling it, make sure the squishy side faces up. Another consideration, but one not known outside of the industry is that the mattress is suitable for use with a multitude of different foundations, slatted or divan bed bases, along with adjustable bed frames. Using a scale of one to ten where one is the firmest and ten the softest, this mattress ranks as a six and would fall into the medium-firm category of mattresses.

Where Can I Get The Nectar Mattress?

The Nectar Mattress is only available online at present, and is delivered in a relatively small box relative to the size of a mattress, all vacuum-packed and compressed. The Mattress should be opened and left for around an hour to fully inflate to it’s correct size. You then have a year to try the mattress to decide whether you like it, commonplace for a shifting industry focusing more toward all-in-one box based mattresses. Should you decide the mattress is not for you in that period of time, Nectar will organise a collection and refund at no cost to yourself.

What’s The Mattress Like?

Due to the firmness of this mattress being on the slightly firmer side, support from this mattress is very good. However, due to the large amount of memory foam provided in the product, it isn’t just suitable for larger people and managed to be equally impressive at supporting smaller and lighter people, as well as larger people who sleep on their back. While we have only just got our hands on this product, reviews accumulated from across the web after years of use all suggest favourably that this Mattress will stand the test of time. One thing worth noting, this is a memory foam mattress with a very generous thickness associated to it, as such, it is very easy to sink into this mattress when you lie on it. Not a bad thing at all, infact many embrace the memory foam element of this product, one point of contention however, is that turning over and switching sleeping positions does tend to require a little more effort than it would on some other mattresses. What is great though, is that the lack of springs and firmer product means that anything that you do, like the movement above shouldn't disturb your partner, because this is a very stable mattress with exceptional absorption.

How Do I Care For This Mattress?

This is a one-sided mattress, that means it does not require flipping but you still need to rotate it from head to toe every few months. Flipping can be a pain but rotating isn’t as bad, made slightly more difficult on the Nectar Mattress due to its lack of handles, but by no means something that should be considered a deal-breaker. The mattress only weighs 29kg and when you consider you only really need to drag it to the other corner, you’ll manage.

Should I Buy It?

This mattress does feel warm in winter due to it’s memory foam properties, but it is also extremely breathable so you won’t find yourself getting too sweaty during the night, regardless of temperature. With that in mind and everything else we have seen from this product, we feel that it is a great all-rounder at a reasonable price given the longevity offered from this type of product and is well worth considering.

What Makes The Nectar Memory Foam Mattress Great?

Made in the UK

These are made and manufactured in the UK, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine UK manufacturing.

Handcrafted in the UK

Handcrafted in the UK means that the product is built here, by people being paid a fair and honest wage using certified and safe products of good quality and construction. UK manufacturing is some of th best in the world and all of that is reflected in this product

Vegan-friendly

The fabrics, materials and fillings of this mattress are the result of what has been deemed vegan-friendly materials. Ideal for those expressing their beliefs while still requiring good levels of comfort and support from a product

Pressure Relief

One of the big complaints when settling into a new mattress is that it does not feel as comfortable as they hoped, where this mattress shines is in the enhanced pressure relief that it offers. Each part of your body exerts different amounts of pressure against the mattress and through the use of springs and foams, these products are able to offer significant pressure relief as a result across the entire body.

Medium to Firm

Firmer than the average mattress, a medium to firm mattress is ideally suited to those that are looking for extra back support but still require and amount of comfort from their mattress. Ideally suited for a large range of the populus and becoming much more common, deviating away from the previous medium-for-everyone model.

Memory Foam

memory foam is one of the most well known materials used in the upper layer of mattresses. Memory foam basically contours to your entire body with moulding properties. Designed by NASA, this material rebounds to your touch and feels like you are floating on a cloud. Memory foam does not necesserily mean soft either, you can still have firm mattresses for those that want them with a bit of memory foam.

Knitted Cover

It is common in the industry to have a knitted cover, these covers can come in a variety of patterns but are typically hard wearing and do not present problems for consumers.

Depth: 25cm

Most experts recommend a minimum 10 inches, 4 inches on the top layer and 6 inches for the core so this size is an ideal balance of size and performance. Generally, the heavier the load the deeper the mattress should be.

25cm deep

A 25cm mattress is a good depth for a product of quality. Plenty of room for some good quality springs and enough space for a good top layer of comfort. This side of product should just about fit a standard sheet but do not be surprised if you find you do need to upgrade to a deeper fill sheet to fit over the mattress.

Reflex foam

Reflex foam is basically like memory foam without the memory part. Reflex foam is used more as a supportive layer than a comfort layer and is often used as an alternative to conventional spring systems.

Single-sided

Single sided means only one side is comfy. Positives are you only need to rotate the mattress occassionaly rather than the more cumbersome rotate and flip. Downside is the lifespan of the product may suffer as a result, only marginal, but worth mentioning.

Built-in turning handles for easy moving when needed

This mattress comes with turning handles that will assist in the rotation and flipping of the product. May seem like no big deal selecting a mattress without handles, however, their use is critical in the movement of larger mattresses and can be the difference between pains and inconvenience and not,

Approved by the National Bed Federation

The NBF is one of the most prestigious awarding federations in the industry, helped slightly by the fact that it is one of the only, however, it is still a great source of comfort knowing that this product holds approval by the team

10 Year Guarantee

A 10 year guarantee is a huge reflection of just how much trust the manufacturer and the retailer have in their product. for reference, mandatory requirements are for a 1 year guarantee.

Rolled-up

Rolled up mattresses are ideal for anyone looking at trying to get a mattress up a tight staircase or in a car to bring home from the shops. Do not missunderstand just how troublesome getting a mattress up stairs can be. Heavy and cumbersome, sometimes a rolled up mattress that expands to the side of a full mattress anyway, may be the better option

Fire Resistant

Fire resistant does not mean the product will never catch fire, rather, it will not go up in flames quite so quickly. Resistant to fire in the same way that I am resistant to kisses, sooner or later you end up giving in.

Single-sided for easy care - no need to turn

A single sided mattress is typical for the industry and relates to how  a mattress has the comfort layer on one side of the mattress. only This means that the mattress only needs to be rotated rather than flipped. The benefit of single sided mattresses is that they require less upkeep in that there's no flipping, but also, there's less components involved in the creation which saves costs.

Comes with an impressive 365-Night Sleep Trial: exchange it for any other mattress if you don't love it

The retailer are so sure that you will love this mattress that they are willing to provide a 360 night sleep trial to guarantee satisfaction. In that time, if you do not like the product you can swap it for a different one in the large collection of mattresses on offer. This offer comes as more retailers and brands look to offer similar pro-consumer terms previously held by the likes of Eve, Simba and Nectar. It's great news for the consumer and gives you the confidence to purchase online.

Loved by everyone! Good Housekeeping Institute and Ideal Home Approved

For over 100 years, the Good Housekeeping Institute has been the trusted source for product reviews, ratings, and how-to articles.

Perfect for every sleeper with just the right amount of firmness, softness and support

Incredibly comfy - with not one but two premium memory foam layers

The top 4cm memory layer removes heat and moisture, regulating your body temperature

Memory foam has properties that adapt shape of your body, immediately recovering its original shape once pressure is no longer applied. It adapts to your movements without sinking, ensuring that pressure is not produced, but without the wrapping feeling which would otherwise cause unnatural posture.

The bottom 5cm memory foam provides pressure relief exactly where you need it

Memory foam has properties that adapt shape of your body, immediately recovering its original shape once pressure is no longer applied. It adapts to your movements without sinking, ensuring that pressure is not produced, but without the wrapping feeling which would otherwise cause unnatural posture.

Adaptive cooling cover circulates fresh air every time you move

Supportive base includes 7 zones of support for every area of your body

Medium-firm support - not too soft, not too firm

A medium firm tension mattress is slightly firmer than your average medium mattress. This is ideal for those who either prefer a little bit more support, or, those that have a slightly higher BMI than average. You may also benefit from a medium firmness mattress where you are suffering from neck/back pain as the additional support can help prevent and alleviate these symptoms.

Vegan-friendly too!

Everything is excellent about it. Had it 3 weeks now and it just gets better reference comfort levels. Great for all sleeping positions. No back or hip ache. Some slight discomfort from my shoulders to begin with but absolutely zero now the mattress is a couple of weeks old. Best night's sleep we both have ever had. No overheating problems either. Great value for money. You will not regret buying this especially with the comforting knowledge of a 365 night trial.

5

Had quite a few memory mattresses over the years, finally found one that works for me. Molds really well to my profile, I'm a side sleeper and the support is exactly where I needed it, on my hips and lower back.It's also comfortable and not too soft, which works. It's a deep mattress and quality, I'm no mattress expert but looks well made. Happy to recommend.

5

Love my Nectar double mattress, really comfortable, and supports us both. Commendable that we both love it, we are considerably different weights and both feel supported and both love the comfort.It's also great value, well made, deep and a massive improvement on our old mattress.
