When third party reviewers did a side by side comparison of Nectar with Puffy, Nectar was the clear winner on categories from price to comfort to materials on leading review sites sleepsherpa.com and memoryfoamtalk.com. A leading source of mattress reviews, Homeandfurniturereview.com, raved about the technology behind Nectar, saying, “My engineering team found this to be the best mattress for isolating motion of all the mattresses they have tested. They continued to discuss some of the other qualities that make Nectar a fan-favorite and go-to over Puffy, including Nectar’s best-in-industry trial period: “The Nectar mattress [has] a generous trial period. Again, it’s a 365 nights trial period which so far is unheard of in the industry.”
Nectar uses premium foams and takes the utmost care during the construction process to ensure that we achieve the optimal balance between support and comfort. When it comes to making a mattress the supports all kinds of sleeping positions (back, side, or stomach) Nectar can’t be beat. With other mattresses people have to make the choice between strong support, or soft comfort, but not so with Nectar. Due to our quality construction and use of premium materials in all four layers, we can achieve the best of both worlds. Puffy only has two layers and is not ranked as high by third party reviewers when it comes to construction and materials.

Nectar 365 Nights vs. Puffy 101 Nights Home Trial
*on Puffy’s website
Nectar offers a 365 nights trial period, with free shipping and returns so you can try the mattress on your terms, for up to a full year! “This more than triples the length of many of the online mattress company trial periods,” says SleepSherpa.com of Nectar. “With the Nectar mattress you get to sleep on it for a whole year before deciding if it’s right for you. That means you get to experience through all four seasons.” Puffy only gives you 101 nights (less than a third of the Nectar risk-free trial period!) to try the mattress, which isn’t enough to experience your sleep through all four seasons.
Nectar Forever Warranty vs. Puffy Lifetime
Nectar offers a lifetime warranty because we stick by our mission that a mattress should last a lifetime. According to memoryfoamtalk.com, Nectar 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. Puffy also offers a Lifetime warranty.
FIRMNESS + SUPPORT
“I often recommend the Nectar to people who complain about lower back soreness,” says Sleepsherpa.com. “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 Puffy offers comfort, our extra inch of foam (10% more) means that you get that much more support which still staying soft – whereas Puffy says they are a 6.5-8.5 which, as an 8.5 on a scale of 1-10 (10 being a cement floor) is far too firm for many sleepers.
MEMORY FOAM COMFORT
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. This is DOUBLE the layers of Puffy’s two layer system. GetBestMattress.com agrees that Nectar’s use of 4 layers is unique and makes it stand out as a fan-favorite, 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. Why is Nectar better? A combination of its additional layer of premium memory foam for stability, and that extra inch of mattress for comfort.
If you sleep hot, then Nectar is definitely for you. “The Nectar mattress just feels great,” says Sleepsherpa.com. “It has dense top foam layer along with a phase change ticking that has cooling gel quilted into it. The Nectar mattress isn’t just another typical foam mattress, it has some significant advantages over the competitors.” While Puffy sites their first layer as a “cooling cloud layer,” third party reviewers rave about Nectar’s patented Tencel Cooling Cover that promotes good circulation and sleeping cool so you can rest assured you will still sleep cool. And Nectar goes one step further and has built in a cooling system right into the mattress to make it an additional layer on the standard 3-layer mattress system. If you take away the cooling cover on Puffy, you are left with just their single layer of foam, whereas Nectar still offers three layers of support – plus a patented Tencel cooling cover. According to memoryfoamtalk.com, “The cover of the Nectar mattress mattress is made up of soft, long staple cotton that includes Tencel – a fabric more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk, and cooler than linen.The cover is naturally bed bug resistant and actually circulates air throughout the upper layer of the mattress to improve airflow and circulation. The cover and exterior of the Nectar mattress is extremely soft and luxurious feeling, something we normally see only in mattresses costing 3-4x the cost of the Nectar. This cover can be replaced by the company if you need a fresh cover after sleeping on the mattress over time, at no charge – which is something we have never heard a mattress company doing.” GetBestMattress.com says, “There is a quilted 4lb. cooling gel foam layer which is something unique to the Nectar mattress. It give the mattress a unique feel and provides great pressure relief.” This is something that Puffy just can’t offer.
And, according to mattressclarity.com, “Nectar’s mattress is a good option if you want a memory foam based mattress at an affordable price.It has four foam layers – including two gel memory foam layers – and cooling technology built into the cover. It has a pillow-top like feel for comfort and body contouring but its high-density foam base layer keeps you supported.” Not to mention, they rave about sleeping cool, saying “Nectar’s cover fabric is made with long staple cotton and Tencel fabric for maximum breathability. The fabric is bed bug resistant and is OEKO-TEX® Standard 100, Class 1 certified. OEKO-TEX® is a well-known independent environmental testing and certification system that works to make sure harmful substances stay out of textiles.”
Have you ever felt your partner tossing around trying to fall asleep – with Nectar mattresses, this will be greatly reduced as Nectar has a 9.6/10 (near perfect) score for Motion Transfer. A Nectar mattress means you won’t have to settle for a “trade-off,” and you can enjoy the right amount of firmness to support your back, and also the right amount of softness so that you will not feel if your partner is kicking or tossing on the other side of the bed. Nectar mattresses offer a solid 6″ Foundation Layer, which is essential for providing good support and ensuring that motion transfer won’t affect your sleep. Trust Nectar – we know your sleep will feel the difference. Also, Puffy mattress has a “con” of “not very good edge support” according to mattress-guides.com, and “sinkage for heavier sleepers” according to memoryfoamtalk.com while with Nectar, our three layer system offers supreme support. “Normal edge support is often lacking in all- foam products, so I thought Nectar would be the same. However, I was surprised at how well the very firm base layers were able to support me. I sat in various areas of the mattress noting the sinkage I experienced,” says thesleepjudge.com.
