That means you get to experience through all four seasons.” Saatva only gives you 120 days to try the mattress, which isn’t enough to experience your sleep through all four seasons.


NECTAR Lifetime vs. Saatva 15 years *website specs
NECTAR offers a lifetime warranty because we stick by our mission that a mattress should last a lifetime. Saatva only offers a 15-year warranty, which means it will likely break down after 15 years. According to, our foams are the best of the best and built to last including:

  • 1″ Top Comfort Layer – This layer is 1″ of quilted foam that is sewn into the cover that is designed to improve airflow and and relieve pressure points, while providing softness and a luxurious feel to the top of the mattress.
  • 1″ Support Layer – This layer is 1″ of 4lb patented Lush Foam semi-open fast-recovery gel memory foam, which provides primary support and aids in cooling and comfort.
  • 3″ Transition Layer – This layer is 3″ of 3lb medical grade cooling gel embedded foam that acts as a transitional support layer between the upper and lower layers and also aids in cooling the mattress.
  • 6″ Foundation Layer – This layer is 6″ of high density foam that acts as the foundation and provides deep compression support.

At NECTAR, we truly believe in our premium memory foams and know they are the best in the industry. That’s why we say that once you buy a NECTAR you won’t have to buy another mattress again.


NECTAR 9 vs. Saatva 8.2 *
“I often recommend the NECTAR to people who complain about lower back soreness,” says “I found that the NECTAR provides superior pressure relief and contouring. The dense foam used in the NECTAR can address certain pain points in ways other mattresses can’t.” This is because NECTAR is right in the middle of firm and soft, allowing it to be a comfortable mattress for any back, stomach, or side sleeper. It is just firm enough that if you have back pain, you will be supported, but also soft enough that if you are a side sleeper you won’t get sore hips. The secret? The combination of premium memory foams spread through in four unique layers. While Saatva offers firmness and support, our combination of firmness and support is actually ranked considerably higher – and for a cheaper price.


NECTAR 4 Layers of Memory Foam vs. Saatva Coils
In an industry of mostly 3 layer mattresses, NECTAR is unique when it comes to adding an extra layer of memory foam for comfort and support. NECTAR’s 11-inch high mattress with 4 layers is loved by customer and third-party reviewers alike. agrees, saying, “NECTAR mattress is a totally integrated 11″ gel memory foam mattress which exceeds the industry standard of 10″, and 4 layers exceeds the industry standard of 3 layers.” Comfort is a personal choice, as most people want both soft and firm, bouncy and stable, supportive and supple. Saatva mattress uses coils, which are not as soft and supportive as memory foam. Why is NECTAR memory foam better? 11” of premium memory foam throughout provide the ultimate stability and comfort.
