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

You don’t need gimmicks. Or Silicon Valley tech bros tracking your sleep.

Nectar’s focus has been on engineering a perfect night’s sleep (gaining many awards in that pursuit).

Plus, you get 365-nights to test it out (compared to just 100 for Sleep Number).

Oh, and the Nectar is cheaper!

Sleep Number: A load of hot air?

Confused about what a Sleep Number mattress is made of? Us too. As well as a measly 2” of comfort foam, and a couple of base foam layers, the rest of the mattress is pumped up with air to your preferred firmness. And you leave the pump on to make sure it stays at that firmness all night long.

And on their own website they give the 360 C2 a low rating for pressure relief and comfort, compared to their other (much more expensive) models. Btw, if you want more comfort, you can add their memory foam layer (sold on their website for another $329.99 for a Queen. Ouch!).

The Nectar Mattress

nectar mattress layers

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 foam layer helps promote 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.

Sleep Number C2 Smart Bed

Sleep Number Classic

Cover

A cotton/poly blend designed to stretch over the mattress.

Comfort Layer

Some kind of proprietary foam, made of a polyurethane blend... Otherwise known as mysterious memory foam.

Adjustable Air Chambers

Air chambers that inflate or deflate to your desired density, like a camping mattress.

Base Layer

More mystery foam in a support layer.

Sleep Number: Smarter sleep? Or a stupid decision?

Sleep Number is selling the dream of a smart life – everything tracked and counted and measured. But really, how smart do you need your mattress to be? Do you want your mattress to be tracking your data (just like your email, your phone, and everything else these days)? How many hours you slept, what time your partner came to bed… and where does all that data go, anyway?

We think your mattress should do one thing amazingly: give you an incredible night’s sleep.

  • Get a Fitbit, it’s cheaper. Sleep Number says they’ve developed technology to help you sleep better. Let’s assume this is true (although it sounds like hot air). The trouble is, only the expensive models come with that tech. So all you get in this supposedly game-changing mattress is a couple of inches of foam, a sleep tracker, and some hot air. You’d be better off wearing a Fitbit, catching some shut-eye on your camping mattress, and spending the leftover $900 on a really nice vacation.
  • Only 8” of actual mattress. The Nectar Mattress is 12” high, with five layers of premium materials, designed to cradle and support your body while you sleep. The Sleep Number C2 360 is only 8’’ of mattress, with an undefined “proprietary foam” and a lot of… well, hot air. Meaning you’re paying more…for much less mattress.
  • Forget the pointless tech. With a Sleep Number it feels like a bunch of tech bros got together out in Silicon Valley and tried to jazz up a camping mattress. At Nectar we keep a good night’s sleep simple, giving you a mattress that’s supportive and truly comfortable (and better value for money). No gimmicks. No storing your sleep data. No pointless tech.

You’ll be ‘blown away’ by Nectar

“it works great for all sleep positions.”
