Feel, Firmness, and Support


The multiple award winning mattress including USA Today’s Best Mattress Of The Year and Slumber Yard’s Best Foam Mattress of 2019, is known for their three top layers of memory foam. Each layer ranges in density, Nectar beds provides a good amount of back support and are also ideal for all sorts of sleep due to its medium-firmness. 

 The multiple layer structure means you don’t sink in too far and your spine remains properly aligned. Nectar’s adaptive memory foam mattress layers are designed to relieve common pressure points beneath your shoulders, hips, and legs for better spinal alignment on any body type. 

  • First layer: Gel Memory Foam, help distribute your weight and body heat around the mattress, so you don’t sleep hot or feel lumps.

  • Second Layer: Adaptive Hi Core Memory Foam , brings the perfect amount of support to avoid feeling of sinking.

  • Third Layer: Base Layer, Stabilizes the memory foam mattress layers above and reinforces support.

Nectar also minimizes motion transfer to move around freely without waking your partner and allowing for a more secure feel.

It's patented Hyper-Elastic Polymer top layer has a distinct feel that’s more responsive to bounce back to general shape. Featuring the Purple Grid™, comfort technology that instantly and intelligently adapts to your body to softly cradle your hips and shoulders and firmly support your back’s natural shape.
