Thank you to Nectar for sponsoring this post.
Online mattresses are quickly becoming the most popular way to buy a mattress, and for good reason. It is so much easier to order a mattress and have it delivered right to your door plus you pay a fraction of the cost of traditional mattresses. When my daughter’s mattress needed replacing, we knew we’d be going with a foam mattress for her so we were excited to try our a Nectar Mattress. Nectar is consistently one of the highest reviewed online mattresses and with their 365 day sleep guarantee, you really can’t go wrong.
The past few months have been super busy at my house, so rearranging bedrooms was not convenient, but my twins commandeered my daughter’s bunk beds overnight when they decided they were done with toddler beds and left us no choice.
Fortunately, my 5 year old was a good sport about it and offered to just take their bedroom.
She was way too big for a toddler bed though so we needed to bring up a mattress from another bedroom in our basement for her to use.
I thought that mattress was in good shape until I lay down on it. It was so incredibly uncomfortable. Time gets away from us and, even though I felt like that mattress was fairy new, it was actually about 8 years old.
It was definitely time to replace it.
The National Sleep Foundation recommends replacing your mattress every 5-7 years to get the best sleep. I can tell you that I didn’t follow that recommendation for a long time but I couldn’t believe what a difference having a new mattress made on the quality of sleep I get each night.
How to Order a Nectar Mattress
The process of ordering a Nectar mattress is so easy. It ships free and comes right to your door, so there’s no dealing with salespeople or scheduling delivery.
It comes rolled tightly and in a small(ish) box that is fairly easy to move where you need it.
Nectar mattresses come in every size from twin to CA King.
We went with the twin since that was what my daughter needed in her bedroom, although after testing it out, I now want one for my bedroom.
Nectar Mattress Unboxing
The Nectar Mattress comes in a rectangular box that looks way too small to hold a mattress, but it’s in there! Opening it is easy. They even include a cutting tool to get the mattress out of the package.
When the mattress is first unrolled, it looks a bit flat. It puffs up over the next several hours until it reaches full size. I found that the pillows that came with it (nice touch!) took a bit longer to reach their full size.
Check out the video below to see our unboxing:
What do we think of the Nectar Mattress?
We’ve tried quite a few mattresses over the past several years. They all have a slightly different feel. A lot of things come down to personal preference, but for me, I really loved the feel of the Nectar Mattress.
The outer cover was super soft and felt like it was great quality.
Many of you know, I’ve had some pretty major back issues over the last 6 months or so. At one point this fall, I couldn’t get out of bed and my doctor told me spinal surgery was on the table. Because of that, I’m super particular about what I sleep on (among other things).
A previous mattress I was using didn’t give me the support that I needed and aggravated my back issues. The one I used after that had better support but didn’t have the cushier feeling that I love.
Nectar has both support and a nice, cushy top. It reminds me of a pillow-top mattress a bit, but when you lay down, the mattress kind of hugs you. There’s still great support, but it has a bit of that plush feel that I love.
I find myself sneaking into my daughter’s bedroom whenever I want to take a nap, so I may need to get one for my own bed.
I absolutely love that they have a 365 night home trial. That means you can try the mattress out for a full year. If you don’t love it, you can get a full refund, no questions asked.
Shopping for mattresses is one of those things that is a bit hard to do without a bit of trial and error. You have to find something that really works for you and fits your own unique personal preference. Having the ability to try out the Nectar Mattress in your home and really knowing for sure whether it is going to work for you is amazing.
There’s no question about it. You don’t have to worry about being stuck with a mattress you don’t love or having to come up with money for a new one if you decide to go with something else. It makes the Nectar Mattress nearly risk-free.
Personally, I’m now a huge fan. After looking into the amount of testing Nectar has put into their mattress, and the fact that they have a forever warrantee agains manufacture defects, I’m confident that they have a great product. The mattress is definitely one of the most comfortable ones I have slept on and is probably on my wish-list to get one for my bedroom now.
