How Does The Nectar Premier Mattress Feel To Sleep On?
The Nectar Premier mattress is one of the most popular memory foam mattresses from the brand and has earned positive reviews from users.
At first glance, it comes across as a dense surface, which may not appeal to you immediately. However, the multiple memory foam layers underneath the surface can offer the right combination of support, comfort, and bounce.
As such, this all-foam mattress can contour your body shape, providing ‘cradling support’ to your body’s pressure points. You may feel like you’re gradually sinking into the surface but not to the extent of being uncomfortable. Further, there’s a micro-zone transition layer that aids small adjustments so that you can always have the right spinal alignment.
The mattress culminates into a position base material that keeps it from moving around on your bed frame without any mattress straps or clips. And the quilted cooling cover facilitates proper ventilation irrespective of your sleeping position.
Now, the brand claims that the mattress is designed to be suitable for all sleeping positions, and we aren’t arguing about that. But if you’ve used foam mattresses before, you’d know they take some time to return to their original shape after the weight is removed.
So, if you’re switching your sleeping position, it may take some time for the surface to ‘decompress’ and then contour your current body position. But it isn’t something very inconvenient, and you will get used to this feeling over time.
What Is The Nectar Premier Mattress Made Of?
We’ve already told you that the Nectar Premier mattress is an all-foam unit, but there’s more to it. You should also have an idea about its construction and the different layers to better understand its performance.
1. Quilted Cooling Top Layer
The surface of the Nectar Premier mattress comprises a quilted cooling top with heat-wicking technology that doesn’t trap body heat. So, you can sleep comfortably on those hot days (read nights). At the same time, it allows fresh air to circulate every time you change position for enhanced comfort.
We think the Nectar Premier’s cover is a bonus feature, as the mattress isn’t specifically built for hot sleepers.
2. Dynamic Support Layer (Made With Gel-Infused Memory Foam)
The dynamically adjusting foam in this layer essentially serves two purposes.
Firstly, it aids the quilted top in circulating air to make the mattress feel cool and breezy, which can also reduce the chances of odour or bacterial formation from sweat. Secondly, it adds some much-needed bounce to the mattress, making it more effective in body contouring.
In hindsight, the mattress won’t feel too stiff, but it won’t make you sink completely, either.
3. Pressure-Relieving Memory Foam
If you suffer from pain and pressure around your joints when sleeping, this pressure-relieving foam layer can make you comfortable, regardless of your preferred sleeping position. It will make you sink in the right areas so that your pressure points are contoured for optimum pressure relief.
Moreover, the combination of the gel memory foam and the pressure-relieving memory foam facilitates effective motion isolation. This feature will come in especially handy if you have a partner who moves too much in sleep or if you share your bed with your children or pets.
4. Honeycomb Micro-Zoned Transition Layer
The precision-engineered 12 micro-zoned transition layer is a comfort layer to make tiny adjustments for proper spine alignment and help you get a good night’s sleep. In fact, this is one of the major reasons that make the Nectar Premier mattress a fit for back, side, and stomach sleepers.
5. Honeycomb Micro-Zoned Support Base
The transition layer in this mattress is well supported by a similar micro-zoned base that enhances the benefit of the above layer. Both layers can help you sleep comfortably by supporting and distributing your body weight evenly across the surface.
6. Position Base Material
Lastly, the Premier mattress has a supporting base that prevents it from shifting on the bed frame. However, there’s no dedicated edge support here.
Weight And Thickness
Although the exact weight of the mattress isn’t known to us, it isn’t the most lightweight mattress on the market. So, moving it around your home may not be very easy, especially if you don’t have an extra pair of hands to help you.
As for the dimensions, the Nectar Premier mattress comes in the following sizes, each with a depth of 28 cm:
- Single: 90cm x 190cm x 28cm
- Small Double: 120cm x 190cm x 28cm
- Double: 135cm x 190cm x 28cm
- King: 150cm x 200cm x 28cm
- Super King: 180cm x 200cm x 28cm
How Much Does The Nectar Premier Mattress Cost?
As the name may have already told you, the Nectar Premier mattress is, well, a premium offering from the brand. All its sizes are on the steeper side, so you may have to look for other mattresses if budget is a big constraint.
On that note, here are how the different sizes of the Nectar Premier mattress are priced:
- Single: £ 1,349
- Double: £ 1,749
- King: £ 1,849
- Super King: £ 1,999
You can also opt for the Nectar bundle with any of these options, which will include a mattress protector, duvet, pillows and bedding set. Besides, the brand often offers considerable discounts on individual Nectar mattresses, so keep an eye on the official website to grab the best deal.
While most mattresses come with a maximum warranty period of 10 or 15 years, Nectar backs its Premier mattress with a lifetime warranty. This means you can reach out to the brand anytime in case of any issues with the unit for as long as you own it, and Nectar will repair or replace it.
Further, Nectar offers free shipping and delivery of the mattress within 5 working days. And you can reach out to the brand’s sleep specialists in case of any queries about the mattress.
The brand also understands that ‘breaking into’ a new mattress takes time, which is why it offers a long 365-night trial policy. If the Nectar mattress doesn’t meet your requirements or fails to deliver on its claim during this period, you can simply contact customer service to avail free pick-up and refund.
Another thing to note about the brand is its commitment to 100% carbon-neutral mattress delivery. For this, the carbon footprint during the manufacturing process is calculated and reduced as much as possible.
Besides, unlike most other foam mattresses, Nectar mattresses don’t contain any harmful dyes, heavy metals, or ozone-depleting chemicals. Even the cardboard (for the packaging the mattress comes in) is sourced from sustainable forests.
Is This The Right Mattress For You?
The Nectar mattress has all the features of an all-foam mattress, providing sleepers with comfort, support as well as pressure relief. It has a medium-firm feel, scoring 6.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale, and its benefits may be best experienced by sleepers weighing up to 230 pounds.
Moreover, its cooling cover and dynamic support layer can facilitate air circulation to help you sleep cooler. And its micro-zone transition layer aids in spine alignment for all sleeping positions.
Although the mattress facilitates motion isolation to give you undisturbed sleep, we’d have liked some form of edge support, which would’ve increased the usable surface of the mattress. Without it, you may feel like rolling off the bed, especially if you tend to move around in sleep. And getting used to this feeling may take some time.
Lastly, the mattress has a strong off-gassing smell that can take a few days to dissipate, so we’d suggest placing it in a well-ventilated room for a few days before use.
Overall, the Nectar Premier is a good option for people looking to try a medium-firm mattress that can support their pressure points and provide comfort without making them sink in. Moreover, the cooling layers can enhance its comfort, but the premium pricing may not suit every budget.
