Our Review

Mattress Construction

  • Mattress height and size- the Nectar Lush has a height of 12 inches. This is a sweet spot for people who want a mattress that is neither too thin nor too thick to make climbing on/off the bed a hassle.

  • Cover- this mattress has a thin cover made from a blend of spandex, polyester, nylon, and Tencel. One thing that's commonly highlighted in most Nectar Lush mattress reviews is how cool this cover feels. This is because it's engineered to wick away sweat and prevent heat buildup. This means a lot for a memory foam mattress and more so if you tend to sleep hot at night. The cover is soft and super stretchy too, so we expect it to hold up nicely for a long time. Lastly, we appreciate that this cover has a zip that allows you to remove it for washing or replacements. However, Nectar recommends spot-cleaning only using a mild detergent in case of stains.
  • Comfort layer- the first layer of this mattress is one of its key selling components and where most of the magic happens. This section is made up of a 3-inch layer of 3.5 PCF memory foam infused with gel. The low-density design of this layer gives the Nectar Lush that classic feel of traditional memory foam. This layer has deep body-conforming, which is vital for superior pressure relief. Important to mention here is that the low-density construction of this layer also makes it reasonably breathable. This breathability, coupled with the gel-infusion technology and thin cover at the top, helps a lot in regulating temperature.
  • Transition layer- beneath the comfort layer is a 2-inch block of 2.5 PCF Energex memory foam. Worth pointing out, Energex memory foam is a relatively new type of Certipur-certified foam that's engineered to combine the best properties of memory foam and latex technologies. This means that you benefit from traditional visco foam's pressure-mapping characteristics but with the quick responsiveness and bounce of latex. With a slightly denser construction than the comfort layer, the transition block prevents you from sinking too deep into the mattress. In addition, it offers a buffer protecting you from the firm support foam below.
  • Support base- the core of this mattress is a 7-inch high-density poly foam block. This foam supports the comfort and transition layers above to create an even plane. It also minimizes sagging and increases edge support, albeit to a fair degree.
  • Overall, we're impressed by Nectar's approach to the design and construction of the Nectar Lush. We think it will be a perfect pick if you love memory foam because of its classic body-hugging feel but would prefer a temperature-neutral bed.

TOP 5 Mattresses

Nectar Mattress

The Nectar Lush Mattress

Sleeping Positions

Having gone through this mattress's construction details, let's discuss who this model might be best for. We like pointing out that whether a mattress will work for you depends on your weight and sleeping position.

Side sleepers - the most critical factor to consider when purchasing a mattress for side sleeping is its pressure relief ability. Pressure relief in a mattress is assured if the mattress has a good balance of body-conforming and support. To a larger extent, we're convinced that the Nectar Lush was engineered purposely for side sleepers. The comfort layer of this mattress contours deeply to cradle your hips and shoulders and prevent pressure points around these joints. On the other hand, the dense transition layer kicks in just in time to provide enough firmness to prevent you from sinking too deep into the mattress. This helps in aligning the spine to the shoulders and pelvis, thereby reducing tension.

Back sleepers - the Nectar mattress is very popular with people who curl mainly on their back too. Back sleepers typically require a bed with enough support to align the spine and a good amount of cushion to keep their shoulders, pelvis, and hips comfortable. With its medium-firm feel, the Nectar mattress conforms to your body shape to embrace every curve without feeling stiff. Its excellent conformity again keeps your spine aligned, evoking a deep sleep.

Stomach sleepers - this is the most delicate sleeping position as it tends to flatten your spine's natural curve. This puts a load of pressure on your shoulder and hip joints and spinal muscles. The Nectar Lush may work for you if you fall into the lightweight (under 130 lbs) or average weight (130-230 lbs) categories. If you weigh over 230 pounds and sleep predominantly on your stomach, this mattress may not provide enough support and may end up throwing your spine out of alignment. Heavier individuals may want a bed with a little more pushback.

In a word, the Nectar Lush is a highly recommendable mattress for side and back sleepers. It should also impress combination sleepers who sleep mainly on their side or back and tend to switch to stomach sleeping position.

Firmness Review

The Nectar Lush is engineered to offer the traditional visco foam feel. In line with this, the cover is made thin and soft to ensure that you experience the authentic feeling of the memory foam layer that makes the comfort section.

The Nectar Lush is a medium-firm mattress and falls at around 5.5 on the 1-10 firmness scale. The low-density memory foam layer at the top is soft to the touch and will let you sink in the mattress to create a body-hugging feel. This excellent conformity makes this mattress a nice option for memory foam lovers who prefer sleeping IN the mattress instead of ON the mattress.

You won’t sink too far into the foams, though. The transition layer, which feels like a blend of memory foam and latex, has a decent firmness to prevent you from bottoming out, especially when sleeping on your side and back. This layer also gives the Nectar Lush a notable degree of responsiveness and bounce so that you won’t feel stuck in bed.

So, as far as firmness goes, we think the Nectar Lush will suit you if you need the body-hugging feel that comes with traditional memory foam mattresses. Again, Nectar has done a commendable job reducing the stuck-in-mud feeling that’s common with visco foam. That being said, if this is what holds you back from trying out memory foam beds, Nectar has taken care of it quite well here.

Value for the Money

All in all, we think that you’re getting a really good memory foam mattress with the Lush if you’re willing to invest a little more. The mattress is more expensive than other all foam mattresses, but it is often on sale. We suggest buying when it's on sale or with a coupon.

Besides its excellent body-contouring and pressure relief capabilities, this mattress is among the best in isolating motion. This assessment will make a lot of sense for couples and individuals who share the bed with another person or pet. Lastly, the Nectar Lush does really well in regulating temperature. While it’s not necessarily the best mattress in this regard, its breathable cover and gel memory foam around the center make it an incredible contender for people who sleep hot.

Overall

The Nectar Lush is slightly pricier than most memory foam mattresses in its category. However, if you have no problem investing a little more, this mattress will make a great purchase if you love the traditional feel of visco foam. It makes an even better contender if you want a mattress that doesn’t sleep overly hot and it’s easier to move on.

  • Excellent pressure relief
  • Performs well in regulating temperature
  • Removable cover makes cleaning stains and replacing it easy
  • Performs excellently in isolating motion
  • Not cheap (it’s regularly discounted, though)
