How we test products
Our mission is to take the guesswork out of finding the perfect sleep products.
We've dedicated hundreds of hours to testing mattresses and sleep accessories, and rely on a team of testers of differing weights, temperature preferences, and sleeping positions to evaluate each product.
Tested products are granted the Sleep Hero tested stamp of approval, a mark of our review's reliability.
If we haven't personally tested a product, please be assured that we invest significant time and energy into scouring the UK market and researching the best recommendations, and we work with a team of sleep experts who review our articles, ensuring that the insights we provide are not only relatable but also reliable.
Who is the Nectar Premier mattress most suitable for?
Nectar Premier mattress reviews are overwhelmingly positive.
Most customers are happy, not just with the mattress itself but with Nectar Sleep's services (resulting in an impressive 4.3-star Trustpilot rating). ⭐
The thoughtful design helps many get a better night’s sleep.
However, the Nectar Premier mattress won't be ideal for everyone.
Let's take a quick look at who the Nectar Premier mattress is best suited for and who might want to consider an alternative! 🤔
Who is the Nectar Premier mattress most suitable for?
The Nectar Premier could be the mattress of your dreams.
Overall, most customers are happy, not just with the mattress but also with the services provided by Nectar Sleep. 💗
Let's see what makes the mattress great and who it's best suited for. 😍
The Nectar Premier mattress is most suitable for:
- People looking for a mattress that is not too firm.
- Couples who want a better night's sleep without feeling their partner's every turn.
- Those who often overheat or sweat in their sleep.
- Side sleepers and back sleepers can both rest comfortably on this medium-firm mattress.
- People who want a protected purchase with a 365-day trial and a forever warranty.
- Those seeking free delivery and returns.
- Environmentally conscious individuals (the Nectar Premier mattress manufacturing process is 100% carbon neutral, meaning it's kinder to the environment).
As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to love the Nectar Premier mattress!
But it's not the best option for everyone. ⛔
Who is the Nectar Premier mattress less suitable for?
People are different, so it makes sense that we have different needs and preferences when it comes to our mattresses, too.
So, even though the Nectar Premier is well made, it may not be the best mattress for you.
The Nectar Premier mattress is less suitable for:
- People who prefer very soft or very firm mattresses (the Nectar Premier is a medium-firm mattress).
- Those looking for better edge support.
- Older people or those with mobility difficulties (the mattress requires frequent rotating).
- Individuals who like to change sleeping positions frequently.
We'll delve deeper into all of this later on, but for now, let's take a look at the Nectar Premier composition. 👇
Nectar Premier mattress firmness
The Nectar Premier is a medium-firm mattress.
We rank it as a 6.5 out of 10 on the Sleep Hero firmness scale. 📏
As a medium-firm mattress, the Nectar Premier shouldn't feel too soft or firm.
Customers who prefer a not-too-firm mattress will appreciate the Nectar Premier mattress.
Thanks to the dual support layer, it comes with a little more bounce than a traditional memory foam mattress.
But the quilted cover adds an extra layer of softness and comfort. 🐑
The not-too-firm design and microzoning support layers are especially beneficial for those who experience pain or discomfort when sleeping on a firmer mattress.
The 4 cm memory foam layer and honeycomb micro zoning layers are designed to better contour to various bodies, providing both support and pressure relief.
The Nectar Premier suits back and side sleepers well and encourages optimal spinal alignment.
Ranking at a 6.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale, the mattress is well suited to people of a lightweight to average build.
However, it can also support heavier individuals, as all Nectar mattresses have a weight limit of 295 kg (650 lbs). 🤗
While the Nectar Premier mattress is softer than many hybrid mattresses, it's still a medium-firm mattress.
Of course, even though it's not a firm mattress, the Nectar Premier may still feel too firm for some people.
There is a Nectar mattress with a thicker comfort layer (the Nectar Premier Copper), but this is only sold in the US. 😭
So, if you want a super soft mattress, you'll want to look elsewhere.
For instance, one of the softest mattresses that we have seen is the Tempur Cloud Mattress, which is slightly more expensive but worth the price for those seeking cotton floss softness.
Is the Nectar Premier mattress good for couples?
If you're looking for the perfect mattress as a couple, you may be wondering what to look for.
Of course, you need a mattress that's large enough to sleep you and your partner comfortably (and the Nectar Premier is available in sizes from single to super king). 👫
However, that's not the only thing that matters.
It's also well worth considering looking at mattresses with motion isolation.
Like most all-foam mattresses, the Nectar Premier mattress provides excellent motion isolation.
But what exactly is motion isolation?
Simply put, a mattress that provides good motion isolation 'swallows' movements, so you won't be bounced around even if your partner is tossing and turning. 🦘
Foam mattresses like the Nectar Premier are perfect if you or your partner are easily disturbed.
They carry movement far less than traditional innerspring mattresses, which are bouncier and mean whenever one person fidgets or gets out of bed, the other feels the movement.
The Nectar Premier Memory Foam Mattress isolates motion and minimises disturbances.
It can also help reduce tossing and turning as it contours to your body, keeping you secure and comfy.
Overall, the motion isolation offered by the Nectar Premier mattress can help couples sleep better and wake up refreshed. 🙂
Nectar Premier mattress sizes
The Nectar Premier is available in 5 different sizes.
- Nectar Premier single mattress: 90 x 190 cm (3’ x 6’3”)
- Nectar Premier small double mattress: 120 x 190 cm (4’ x 6’3”)
- Nectar Premier double mattress: 135 x 190 cm (4’6” x 6’3”)
- Nectar Premier king-size mattress: 150 x 200 cm (5’ x 6’6”)
- Nectar Premier super-king-size mattress: 180 x 200 cm (6’ x 6’6”)
This variety of sizes is great news whether you're looking for something for a small space or something roomy for you and your partner to stretch onto.
All Nectar Premier mattresses are 28 cm (11 inches) deep, regardless of size.
You can easily find a mattress size that fits your needs, though taller individuals and couples should opt for at least a double mattress to sleep comfortably. 😴
