Watch the video below to see how the Nectar Premier Copper performed when put to the test in the Sleep Foundation Lab.
The all-foam Nectar Premier Copper has a 14-inch profile with three layers in total. The mattress owes its name to the cover, a soft poly-blend infused with copper fibers.
A 4-inch memory foam layer infused with gel and phase change material makes up the bulk of the comfort system. These materials are designed to draw heat away from the sleeper in order to maintain a neutral temperature. Beneath this is a 1-inch layer of polyfoam that acts as a transition to the support core.
The support core consists of 9 inches of polyfoam, which is thicker than most competing mattresses. This layer supplies extra support to keep the spine aligned, and helps increase the durability of the mattress.
The Nectar Premier Copper Mattress is medium firm, with a rating of 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale. This makes it soft enough to cushion potential pressure points, yet firm enough to prevent the body from sinking unevenly and disrupting spinal alignment.

The Nectar Premier Copper is a luxury all-foam mattress with a corresponding price tag. The higher price may be worth it for those seeking specific features such as temperature neutrality, ease of movement, and outstanding pressure relief and motion isolation. Nectar also offers an extra-long sleep trial and a lifetime warranty. However, shoppers on a budget may prefer one of Nectar’s more basic models.
As the Nectar Premier Copper is taller than the average mattress, it may require deep-pocket fitted sheets. The mattress is available in all six standard mattress sizes.
|Twin||38" x 75"||14"||49 lbs.||$1,299|
|Twin XL||38" x 80"||14"||52 lbs.||$1,349|
|Full||54" x 75"||14"||68 lbs.||$1,599|
|Queen||60" x 80"||14"||80 lbs.||$1,699|
|King||76" x 80"||14"||102 lbs.||$1,999|
|California King||72" x 84"||14"||102 lbs.||$1,999|
The Nectar Premier Copper stands out as an excellent mattress for side sleepers, particularly those who weigh more than 130 pounds.
Side sleepers require a mattress that’s soft enough to alleviate pressure points in the shoulders and hips. The medium firm Nectar Premier Copper contours to the curves of the body, reducing pressure buildup and helping to keep the spine aligned.
The comfort section is thicker than in most competing mattresses, meaning sleepers over 130 pounds have plenty of room to sink into the mattress without coming into direct contact with the firmer support layers. The mattress also provides adequate spinal support for sleepers under 130 pounds, although these individuals may find the mattress a tad on the firm side.
Back sleepers typically require a medium firm surface to encourage healthy spinal alignment without causing pressure points. Those who weigh less than 230 pounds should sleep comfortably on the Nectar Premier Copper Mattress. The moderate contouring provides strong lumbar support to prevent unnatural curves in the spine.
The Nectar Premier Copper does not deliver the same level of support to back sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds. These sleepers are better served by a firmer mattress that can help maintain the natural curvature of their lower back without excessive sinking.
The Nectar Premier Copper Mattress is not optimal for stomach sleepers, although those who weigh less than 130 pounds may be able to spend part of the night in this position.
For stomach sleepers, a firmer mattress helps keep the spine on an even plane. Mattresses that are too plush allow the lower back to sink into a U-shape, which can lead to back and neck pain.
The Nectar Premier Copper Mattress is firm enough for stomach sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. These sleepers exert less pressure on the mattress, and receive adequate spinal support. The mattress may be too plush for stomach sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds. These sleepers sink further into the mattress and may experience poor spinal alignment.

The Nectar Premier Copper can be purchased on the Nectar Sleep website, through online retailers, and in Nectar’s physical stores across the U.S.
Nectar ships mattresses for free to the contiguous U.S. via UPS Ground and FedEx. Mattresses are generally delivered within 7 to 14 business days. Shipping to Alaska and Hawaii is also possible for an extra non-refundable fee. Nectar does not ship to Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, or other U.S. territories.
To set up the mattress, take it out of the box, unroll it on the bed frame, and carefully remove the plastic wrapping. It takes 12 to 24 hours for the mattress to fully expand
For an extra $149, Nectar can coordinate White Glove delivery through a local provider. This service includes unboxing, unwrapping and unrolling the mattress. Removal of an old mattress is at the discretion of the White Glove service provider, so it may not be available everywhere. White Glove delivery fees are non-refundable
As with all its mattresses, Nectar offers a 365-night trial with free returns for customers in the contiguous U.S. Customers who aren’t satisfied with their Nectar mattress can return it for a full refund, or exchange it for a different model.
Once the mattress has been opened, Nectar asks that customers wait at least 30 days before initiating a return request. Dirty or damaged mattresses are not eligible for return.
Nectar Sleep offers a limited lifetime warranty for original owners who purchased their mattress from Nectar Sleep or an authorized retailer.
During the first 10 years, Nectar Sleep will replace any mattress for free if the company deems it to be defective. After 10 years, Nectar will replace or repair the mattress for a $50 transportation fee each way. The transportation fee may be waived if the mattress is found defective. Alternately, customers can also choose to keep their defective mattress and receive a second, new Nectar mattress for 50% of the original purchase price.
The warranty covers visible indentations of at least 1.5 inches, as well as splitting or cracking in the foams and manufacturing defects in the cover. Damaged mattresses and those that have been used without a proper foundation are not eligible for warranty coverage.
