*According to Sleep Foundation

Helix

Why have 5,500,000+ people chosen Nectar?

The Nectar Mattress

Nectar Mattress

Breathable Cooling Cover

Our signature cover is designed with innovative cooling technology for a refreshing rest. It features heat-absorbent polyethylene fibers that help wick excess body heat away to promote cool sleep.

Therapeutic Gel-Infused Memory Foam

Two inches of CertiPUR-US® Certified gel memory foam contours to your every curve. Plush gel memory foam offers pressure-relieving support and sleeps cooler than traditional memory foam.

Dynamic Response Layer

Three inches of conventional CertiPUR-US® Certified foam provides support while allowing airflow, plus crucial rebound and bounce. This responsive layer helps minimize motion transfer and promotes better spinal alignment.

ActiveSupport Stability Base Layer

Seven inches of conventional CertiPUR-US® Certified foam ensures structure, so the layers above it perform at their peak. This durable layer is the foundation for better sleep.

Shift-Resistant Lower Cover

The soft stitchbond polyester cover helps the inner core of your mattress stay in place, and prevents each of the layers from shifting on top of each other.

Helix Midnight

BreatheKnit Cover

Their included knit cover is breathable, but it’s not cooling like Nectar’s.

Memory Plus Foam

Helix says this memory foam layer is unique, but it provides pressure relief, just like ours.

Comfort Layer

This layer of Helix Responsive foam is designed to cradle and contour to your body for optimal support and comfort.

Transition Layer

Another layer of Helix Responsive foam that provides ergonomic support and cushioning.

Wrapped Coils

All Helix mattresses are hybrids with individually-wrapped coils. Nectar has hybrid options, too, and they’re more affordable.

DuraDense Foam

The bottom foam layer of the mattress provides base support and durability to the entire mattress.

Helix: Spend more. Get less. .

You’ll spend a lot more cash to get a Helix Midnight mattress. So what do you get for all that extra money? It’s not a longer trial or warranty, or a taller mattress. Nectar has a half inch more comfort and support than Helix.

Every Nectar mattress also comes with a cooling cover free. If you want to add a cooling cover to your Helix Midnight mattress, they charge you hundreds more to upgrade. Nectar has heat-wicking threads woven into its cover to help keep you cool while you sleep, at no extra cost.

There are so many Helix options, you won’t know what time of day it is

Choosing the right mattress can be tricky. So why is Helix making it so confusing for you? Helix’s whole schtick is that you get to tailor your mattress to your needs. Sounds reasonable. In theory.

But what really happens is you have to be a sleep expert to make the right choice.

And what if you get it wrong? Well, that means the pain of returning it and re-ordering a different model. Ain’t nobody got time for that…

  • Try not to lose the will to live. You can choose the Moonlight, the Dawn, the Dusk, the Sunset, the Twilight and the Midnight. Oh and do you need a soft feel or a luxury soft feel? Or a soft feel for side sleepers? Or a luxury soft feel for side sleepers? Because there’s also the Moonlight Luxe, the Dawn Luxe, the Dusk Luxe… you get the idea. A good night’s sleep shouldn’t be so complicated – which is why Nectar keeps it simple.
  • You’re too smart for that. Helix uses the oldest marketing trick in the book. That is, when you need to sell something, wheel out the doctor in a white coat for a testimonial. So a doctor slept on it and liked it. That’s the same as saying, “Another human slept on it and liked it”. Only you know what works best for you – which is why we offer the best at-home trial in the industry: 365 nights, so there’s no rush to decide. Helix limits you to just 100 nights.

“it works great for all sleep positions.”
