The true test of a good mattress is not how it feels initially, but rather how well it sleeps over time. For this reason, we'll share our thoughts on the NECTAR mattress and how we're liking it after using it for a full year.


We've had our NECTAR mattress for over a year, and it's been great. After reading many reviews, including those of the NECTAR mattress, I've noticed a common trend. When writing these reviews, many people only use the bed for a week or two before giving up on it.

Mattresses are evaluated most thoroughly over the course of several years. Since we intend to keep our new mattress for a long time and it won't be cheap, we want to make sure it's the best we can get.

Where do you ship the NECTAR mattress?

After we moved into our new home last fall, that's when we first got our NECTAR mattress. Not knowing what to anticipate, I ordered a mattress online and had FedEx deliver it.

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

That fabric bag is brilliant, as it both makes the package more manageable and protects the new mattress from dirt and dust. A mattress is, indeed, quite cumbersome.

NECTAR Mattress Shipping Bag

My new queen-sized NECTAR mattress weighed in at 82 pounds, and that included two free pillows. Personally, I thought it was pretty impressive that I managed to haul it up the stairs. An additional shipping bag proved invaluable.

The mattress is already very convenient to move thanks to the inner shipping bag with handles. That's something I would have liked to have known about sooner. When your new mattress arrives, I suggest taking it out of its outer shipping bag at the door and carrying it into the bedroom in the inner bag, which has handles.

Here's How to Put Together a NECTAR Bed:

The next and best part of the process was putting together the bed. That's when my husband and nephew came to assist me; however, they skipped the carrying up the stairs part. It was similarly painless to put together the bed.

As simple as taking it out of the out bags, NECTAR comes with a tool to safely remove the plastic packaging from the mattress. Our mattress-unwrapping tool doubles as a letter opener. )

Expansion Time for a NECTAR Mattress:

We simply peeled off the plastic and placed it on the bed's frame to expand. It could be used for sleeping after only a few hours, but it took 24 hours to reach full comfort. The mattress reached its full potential 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. Aside from being cheap and sturdy, it also has a ton of storage space under the bed.

NECTAR provides an adjustable bed frame that is both stylish and functional. Using the included remote, you can change your mattress's firmness, height, and more. Reading it while lying in bed sounds like heaven to me.

To what extent does the NECTAR Mattress swell?

It took our NECTAR mattress about two to three days to fully expand. The mattress was comfortable right away, but it took a couple of days for it to reach its full potential. Compared to conventional pillows, the memory foam ones that came with the set expanded significantly faster.

Bed Cushions from NECTAR:

First, I'll discuss the pillows, and then I'll get to the mattress. Whether or not you find them appealing is, in my opinion, a matter of taste. NECTAR pillows are fantastic, especially if you're a fan of memory foam.

You might not like these pillows if you prefer more "conventional" styles. While my husband can't get enough of his NECTAR pillow, I cannot. For months, I tried making it work as a bed partner, but it never felt right.

Though I no longer use it to sleep in, I still keep it in the bed because I enjoy using it when I'm propped up in bed reading. In contrast, my husband uses his to sleep through the night.

Okay, let's talk about the bed itself. Initially, there was some time for us to get used to our new surroundings. At first, I wasn't sure if we'd adjust to and end up liking our new mattress. Yet, 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. It's always nice to sleep on our own bed after a long day.

The NECTAR mattress is also wonderful because it doesn't matter if one of us goes to bed late, wakes up early, or gets up in the middle of the night to use the restroom. someone sleeping on the other side of the bed won't be disturbed by your getting up and down. It's not a good choice if you want to sleep without worrying about your partner leaving the house in the middle of the night.

In conclusion, after sleeping on our NECTAR mattress for an entire year, we can say that we are completely satisfied with it. I'm crossing my fingers that it delivers as promised.

It's been almost two years since we first got our NECTAR mattress. Due to the fact that I had another mattress to test out, I switched it out in the summer and moved it to the guest room. In the past few months, we have had several guests sleep on the NECTAR mattress, and they have all praised its comfort and quality of sleep. Having a cozy bed to help our guests feel at ease is a great perk of having guests stay with us.
