Watch the video below to see how the Nectar Premier performed when put to the test in the Sleep Foundation Lab.
The Nectar Premier is a 13-inch foam mattress. The cover consists of polyester and nylon blend. The 6-inch comfort system contains a 3-inch layer of gel-infused memory foam with phase change material and a 3-inch layer of polyfoam. A 7-inch polyfoam core reinforces the comfort system and provides support.
Nectar designed this mattress to accommodate various sleeping positions and body types. The comfort and support layers help relieve pressure points that often cause pain in the back, hips, shoulders, and joints. The foam materials also inhibit motion transfer, allowing most people to rest undisturbed when sharing the bed with a partner.
The breathable cover allows increased airflow throughout the mattress. While the cover is intended to feel cool to the touch, sleepers may still notice the foam layers retain some heat.
The materials in the foam layers are CertiPUR-US certified, which means that they contain no flame retardants, mercury, heavy metals, or ozone depleters. This certification also indicates that this product underwent independent testing and has met the appropriate standards for durability and relatively low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions.
Nectar offers this mattress in twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king sizes. The mattress is available in one firmness option, which is considered medium firm (6).
The comfort layer of this mattress has a 3-inch gel-infused memory foam layer with phase change material, and a 3-inch transitional layer of polyfoam. The cover contains a blend of polyester and nylon, and the support core consists of 7 inches of polyfoam.

Side sleeping causes the hips and shoulders to press into the mattress, potentially creating painful pressure points. The Nectar Premier Mattress’ all-foam construction provides excellent support for side sleepers of all weight groups. The mattress is soft enough to contour to the shape of the body and relieve pressure, while promoting spinal alignment.
This mattress might be particularly beneficial for people who weigh more than 130 pounds because they tend to sink into the mattress more than lighter sleepers. Individuals weighing less than 130 pounds should still feel supported, though some may prefer a softer sleep surface.
Back sleepers tend to keep their spine in neutral alignment, but still benefit from a contouring mattress. The Nectar Premier balances the contouring of memory foam with the full-body support of polyfoam. This helps keep the spine aligned while cushioning the lumbar region. This is especially beneficial for back sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds.
Back sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds will sink into the mattress more, but most will still find that it provides plenty of support.
Stomach sleepers typically prefer a firm mattress that prevents their abdomen and hips from sinking in too deeply.
While the Nectar Premier Mattress is medium firm, it offers plenty of support for stomach sleepers. The memory foam comfort layer cushions the upper body, while the transition layer of polyfoam prevents sleepers from sinking in too deeply. That said, stomach sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds may prefer a firmer model.
