After a Year with Our NECTAR Mattress

00:06, Wednesday 25/01/2023 - Pro Reviewer I have 5 years of experience in blogging...

The true test of a good mattress is not how it feels at first, but how well it sleeps over time. That's why, after sleeping on a NECTAR bed for a full year, we felt it was time to share our thoughts.


Now for over a year, we have relied on our NECTAR mattress night after night. After reading many reviews, including those of the NECTAR mattress, I've noticed a common thread: the reviewer has only slept on the bed for a week or two at the most before writing their verdict.

Coupon for NECTAR: For those who are in a hurry to make a purchase, there is currently a promotion where you can save $100 and receive two free memory foam pillows. This is what you'll get if you go shopping RIGHT HERE and enter the promo code BF100 at checkout. This offer may or may not still be valid, in which case the most recent one will be displayed prominently near the site's homepage.

The durability of a mattress over time is what really matters. Since we intend to keep our mattress for a long time and it doesn't come cheap, we want to make sure it's one we'll be happy with.

How do you deliver the NECTAR mattress?

After settling into our new home last fall, we made the decision to purchase a NECTAR mattress. Mattress delivery via FedEx was a first for me, and I wasn't sure what to anticipate.

The NECTAR mattress was packaged for shipping as a rolled-up, long cylinder, wrapped in plastic, placed inside a fabric bag with handles, and then placed inside ANOTHER fabric bag.

I think it's brilliant that you've put the new mattress in a fabric bag, as this makes the package much more manageable. A mattress is, indeed, quite cumbersome.

NECTAR Mattress Shipping Bag

It was 82 pounds to ship my queen-sized NECTAR mattress and the two free pillows that came with it. When I realized I could carry it up the stairs by myself, I was pretty proud of myself. That extra shipping bag was a big help.

The mattress is already super easy to transport, but the inner shipping bag with handles makes it even less of a hassle. Ugh, if only I'd known that was inside! When your new mattress arrives, I suggest taking it out of its outer shipping bag at the front door and carrying it into your bedroom in the inner bag, which has handles.

Tutorial on How to Put Together a NECTAR Mattress:

The next, and most enjoyable, step was setting up the mattress. When I got to the top of the stairs, my husband and nephew came to help. The mattress's assembly was similarly painless.

All that was required was to take it out of the out bags. NECTAR comes with a plastic-cutting instrument so you can remove the packaging without damaging the mattress. (It was originally intended to be used as a mattress unwrapper but has since found new life as a letter opener. )

The Ideal Amount of Time to Let a NECTAR Mattress Expand:

When we were done peeling off the plastic, we simply placed it on the bed's frame and waited for it to expand. It could be used for sleeping after only a few hours, but it took 24 hours to reach full comfort. The optimal comfort level of the mattress was reached after three days (72 hours).

Bed Frame for a NECTAR Mattress:

We opted for the Zinus 14-Inch SmartBase Mattress Foundation as the base for our NECTAR bed. This foundation works great with both standard and foam mattresses, and we've used it with both types. It's cheap, sturdy, and has a ton of storage space below.

NECTAR has an adjustable bed frame that appears to be of high quality. It's a mattress that, with the help of a remote, can be set to a variety of different positions. That sounds like the perfect book for me to read in bed.

The NECTAR Mattress: How Does It Grow?

It took our NECTAR mattress about two to three days to fully expand. While we did get some sleep on it right away, it wasn't until a few days later that it reached its full level of comfort. In comparison, the included memory foam pillows expanded significantly quicker.

Throw Pillows by NECTAR:

Just a quick note about the pillows, and then I'll get to the mattress. How much you enjoy them, if at all, is likely to depend on factors that are highly subjective. NECTAR pillows are fantastic, especially if you're a fan of memory foam.

You might not like these pillows if you prefer the "standard" While my husband cannot sleep without his NECTAR pillow, I do not. For a few months, I tried using it as my nighttime bedding, but it never felt quite right.

I still keep it in the bedroom because I enjoy using it while propped up in bed reading, but I no longer rely on it for actual sleep. But thanks to his Cpap machine, my husband sleeps through the night.

The next topic is the bed itself. There was some getting used to doing things differently for the first couple of weeks. To be honest, at first I wasn't sure if we'd get used to and end up liking our new mattress. However, we DID

Once we had used the NECTAR mattress for a full month, we were convinced of its superior comfort and ability to help us get a restful night's sleep. After sleeping in hotel beds or the beds of friends and family, we realized how much better our own beds were. As much fun as we have on vacation, nothing beats sleeping on our own bed again.

The NECTAR mattress is also fantastic because neither of us has to get out of bed to go to the bathroom or get any work done. one can get in and out of bed without disturbing their sleeping partner. You shouldn't sleep on it if you can't get comfortable without worrying about your partner leaving the house in the middle of the night.

A year on, we continue to be thrilled with our NECTAR purchase. For my part, I'm crossing my fingers that it lives up to my expectations.

Here we are, almost two years later, with the NECTAR mattress. During the summer, I received a new mattress to test out and moved our old one to the guest room as a result. There have been several guests who have slept on the NECTAR mattress, and they have all praised its comfort and quality of sleep. It's nice to know that our guests are enjoying the cozy bed, and I appreciate the positive feedback.
