Reasons to buy
Reasons to avoid
In our run down of the best mattress, we selected Nectar's classic bed as the best memory foam mattress you can buy. It's a great mix of quality and affordability that will suit most users.
Our tester Casey loved this mattress, and found that it's a great choice for tackling back pain. There's more detail in Casey's full Nectar memory foam review, but she suffers from Fibromyalgia, and said that this mattress was 'game-changing'. While she still had a little pain every once in a while, none of it was caused by the mattress. Casey found that the Nectar hits the 'sweet spot of not being too firm or soft', which kept her spine in 'perfect alignment', stopping back pain before it starts.
Towards the firmer side of medium-firm, this mattress is a good mid-point if you're not sure which firmness you like. It has good pressure relief, cradling the hard points of your joints in a soft memory foam layer but with firm, supporting foam underneath.
We have some minor issues with this mattress. The first is a problem with most memory foam mattresses — that gross off-gassing smell However, this was gone by the second day. While it has excellent motion isolation, the edge support is poor, so it feels a little mushy in the corners.
How does it compare?
The fairest direct comparison is between the Nectar and another memory foam mattress, the Tempur-Pedic Pro Adapt (opens in new tab). In my head-to-head between Tempur and Nectar, I found that the Pro Adapt was the better bed. It sleeps far, far cooler, and has better edge support and pressure relief.
However, there's no escaping that at the time of writing, the Pro Adapt costs thousands of dollars more — $2770 dollars more, to be exact. At that price, Tempur should come out on top; you'd want a much better bed for that money. That's why I found that the Nectar is much better value for money than Tempur's Pro-Adapt.
If, like most of us, a $3,000 dollar mattress is out of reach, Nectar's classic mattress is a budget-friendly alternative that doesn't cut quality for a lower price. It's a genuinely good bed that, while it can't beat the titans of the luxury mattress industry, presents good value for money. Nectar also offer a lifetime warranty, so if you use this bed for the average 10 years that a mattress lasts, that's only $60 a year. That gets even cheaper if it lasts longer.
Should you buy it?
Yes, I think you should. If you need to save a little money, this is great value, a high-quality bed at a more than reasonable price. It offers excellent support and has worked wonders with back pain. It's a smart investment for those who like a firmer mattress, and works well even if you like a medium mattress.
However, if you know you like a soft bed, I'd direct you to a bed like the Leesa Original (opens in new tab), our pick for the best bed for side sleepers. This mattress also sleeps a little hot, so if you overheat in the night, one of our picks of cooling mattresses is a better bet; perhaps the DreamCloud Luxury Hybrid (opens in new tab), our #2 mattress overall and the best-value cool mattress.
All in all, the Nectar presents a good deal that's worth considering. It's a comfortable bed that won't break the bank. However, you need to act fast, as this deal only lasts until March 13th.
