Customer Satisfaction

Fill your home with ZZZs

(not with purple-colored Purple branding)

Purple compares to Nectar only where the industry agrees: free shipping, similar firmness. Purple claims to be built for comfort, but its core is made of elastic polymer - aka rubber. Layered memory foam like you’ll find in Nectar is the gold standard if you want a comfortable night’s sleep, night after night.

The Nectar Mattress

Cool-to-the-Touch Quilted Cover

Conk out cool with this soft, breathable cover.

Comfy Cradle Layer

Cuddle every angle and curve with cushy, pressure-relieving gel memory foam.

‘Just Right’ Support Layer

Get Goldilocks-level firmness with dynamically adjusting foam. So you never sink in too deep.

Stay-Stable Base Layer

This sturdy layer helps the oh-so-comfy upper layers give 5-star performances on repeat.

Slip-Free Lower Cover

No slip-and-slide here. Your mattress stays put, no matter which bedframe you choose.

The Purple Mattress

Cover

Separates your sleeping body from the purple rubber grid.

The Hyper-Elastic Polymer® Purple Grid™

It’s rubber. It’s 2” thick. And you won’t see anything like it in the industry. Purple acts like that’s a good thing, but... why aren’t others adopting similar tech?

Foam

Even with wacky new tech, Purple is still relying on memory foam - and not the gel-infused variety.

The Problem With Purple’s Purple Grid™

You’ve heard of Purple. They’ve paid $$$ for ads that get your attention. (Remember Poopourri ads? Same team did Purple ads. Very, very good advertisers.) And maybe you noticed the Purple Grid™ in those ads and liked what you saw.

But read this again:
Nobody else in the industry is using a rubber grid.

Why not? Here are a few reasons:

  • The Purple Grid™ lasts “as long as ordinary mattresses(1),” according to Purple. (Which is between 7 and 10 years.) But top-quality memory foam, like what you’ll get with Nectar, lasts and lasts. That’s why Nectar is confident in giving you a lifetime guarantee. And Purple can give you only 10 years.
  • “Purple” is a really great marketing company. The ads are purple. The grid is purple. Purple is… purple. But peel back the layers and you have 2 inches of weird rubber. Word about Nectar spreads more naturally. Why? Because happy sleepers tell their friends, who tell their friends, who tell their friends. It’s about quality, not ads and gimmicks.
  • The Purple Grid™ lays on foam because foam is supportive. But Nectar skipped all the rubbery-plastic gridding and went straight for the goods: 5-layers of both top-quality memory foam and breathable covers which work together to cradle and cool you, season after season.

And Really, People Just Aren’t That Into The Purple Rubber Grid Thing.

Nope
“People should look forward to bedtime. There should be that moment of "Ahhh!" bliss when you finally collapse into bed at the end of a long workday. That was NOT the case with this rubbery brick of a mattress.”

“I sank through the purple rubber onto the hard frame after the first night. I’ve NEVER had hip pain in my life. Started having weird hip pain after about a week.”

“If I could give zero stars I would. It's basically what looks like rubber and provides NO support at all. Never mind it weighs 100 pounds and we could barely get it in the house.”

“Bought Purple. Hated It. Bought Nectar. In Love.”

Nectar minus Purple = great sleep
“I am 5 months pregnant and opted to get a new bed 3 months into my pregnancy. The Purple mattress wasn’t for us. After switching to Nectar, our sleep improved dramatically. We feel rested in the morning and don’t find ourselves restless and aching in the middle of the night!”

Switched happily from Purple
“We had bought the Purple mattress and hated it. It was uncomfortable and you could feel the weird rubber material they made the bed out of. We saw an ad for the Nectar mattress and gave it a try. Came fast and is SO MUCH CHEAPER than the other mattress we had.”

Nectar uses outstanding materials and charges you less. Fair fight? Frankly, no.
