The history of memory foam begins in one of the most top secret labs in the country. NASA invented memory foam with the purpose to ease aches and pains - all while fully aligning and supporting the spines of astronauts. So it’s no surprise that this miracle material would become the go-to when it comes to making premium mattresses. NECTAR memory foam mattresses utilize this proven technology allowing for the scientifically proven comfort and support. 
When third party reviewers did a side by side comparison of NECTAR with Purple, NECTAR dominated in segments from price to comfort to warranty and trial period. “My engineering team found this to be the best mattress for isolating motion of all the mattresses they have tested,” says the leading of NECTAR. “The NECTAR mattress [has] a generous trial period. Again, it’s a 365 night trial period which so far is unheard of in the industry.”

“My engineering team found this to be the best mattress for isolating motion of all the mattresses they have tested,”

Overall Score

9.3/10 NECTAR
vs 9/10 Purple


NECTAR’s 11” mattress gives it an extra boost of comfort and support that makes it a substantially more supportive mattress over Purple’s 9.5” which is one of the lowest in the industry, below the average 10” height. This 1.5” might not sound like a lot, but it makes a world of difference when it comes to supporting your spine. With mattresses, every inch counts. While both have warranty options, NECTAR offers a lifetime warranty, which far surpasses Purple’s 10-year warranty. NECTAR believes our mattresses should be the last ones you buy. That’s why we guarantee them for life. Purple only gives you 100 night trial, but the NECTAR team believes in a full 365 night sleep trial, so you can test your mattress in every season. Finally, NECTAR mattress will give you over $200 savings for an even better mattress. It’s no wonder the pros vote NECTAR over Purple.

“It provides great pressure relief and support at the same time.”

price / affordability

9.6/10 NECTAR vs 8.3/10 Purple  


One of the first things you want to know when it comes to a mattress is - how much does it cost? It’s no secret that memory foam mattresses often cost thousands of dollars in mattress stores, but what is a secret is why. This should not be a secret any longer - NECTAR cuts out the middleman while keeping all of the premium materials. Because NECTAR is an employee-owned company, we are able to keep our operating costs low and pass the savings onto you! NECTAR’s queen mattress is far less that most bed in a box mattresses because of this - at $670.00 for a queen vs. Purple at $999.99. For an even better mattress, at an even better price, there’s no reason that you shouldn’t have a NECTAR.

“NECTAR is a more affordable option. And affordable doesn’t mean cheap. In this case you get quality and value.”

trial period

NECTAR 365 Days vs
Purple 100 Night Home Trial

*on Purple's site

NECTAR offers 365-day trial period, with free shipping and returns. “This more than triples the length of many of the online mattress company trial periods,” says the leading mattress review site “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 it through all four seasons.” NECTAR’s white glove drop off and pickup service makes it hassle free for you to try the mattress on your terms, for up to a full year! Purple only gives you 100 days to try the mattress, which isn’t enough time to ensure you try it in every season.


NECTAR Lifetime
vs Purple 10 years

*on Purple's site

NECTAR offers a lifetime warranty for all mattresses. That’s because we are confident you shouldn’t ever have to replace a mattress you love - our beds are built to last. Our lifetime warranty offer dominates Purple’s 10-year warranty, since we believe in standing behind our product and guaranteeing it for life. According to Purple’s website, their mattress has a lifetime expectancy of 8-10 years - which means you shouldn’t expect it to last any longer before it will start breaking down. That means you’ll have to buy a new mattress all over again. Not so with NECTAR, which is why we say that once you buy a NECTAR, you won’t have to buy another mattress ever again.

11” depth NECTAR vs. 9.5”depth Purple

*on Purple's site

It’s clear that NECTAR’s 11-inch high mattress gives it an extra boost of comfort and support that towers over Purple’s mere 9.5”. That 1.5” makes a world of difference, but don’t just take our word for it. According to, “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.” It allows the mattress to be right in the middle of firm and soft. This makes it an extremely comfortable mattress even for the average sleeper. It is just firm enough to support you even if you have back pain, and just soft enough so that even side sleepers will be satisfied with the level of comfort.

“The dense foam used in the NECTAR can address certain pain points in ways other mattresses can’t.”


4 layers NECTAR vs. 3 layers Purple 

*on Purple's site

How many layers of memory foam is the right amount? Well first of all, it’s important to note that not all memory foams are created equal. Unlike traditional spring mattresses, NECTAR memory foam mattresses are able to be compacted into a box that can be easily delivered, but not so bendable that they won’t retain their levels of firmness and support. Comfort is a personal choice, and we know people want both soft and firm, bouncy and stable, supportive and supple. And if you are sleeping with a partner, it’s important to have a mattress that will make you both happy. While both NECTAR and Purple claim to have the best memory foam, only NECTAR has 4 layers of foam, whereas Purple only as 3. That added layer makes a huge difference when it comes to achieving the balance of soft and firm.


4” Cooling gel foam layer vs. Purple’s ventilation

For anyone that sleeps hot, NECTAR is definitely going to change your world. “The NECTAR mattress just feels great,” says leading mattress review site “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.” Purple mattresses claim to offer ventilation, but NECTAR goes one step further and has built in a cooling system right into the mattress. NECTAR offers special breathing airflow technology and cooling fabric to help everyone get the optimal sleep. 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.”

“NECTAR goes one step further and has built in a cooling system right into the mattress.”


9.0/10 NECTAR vs. 8.7/10 Purple


NECTAR has a unique top layer to give each NECTAR mattress the perfect amount of softness. The 1″ Top Comfort Layer features a cover made of Tencel fiber which is a soft and very breathable material. It sleeps cooler than cotton and helps wick away moisture to allow for a cool sleep. This is followed by a 1″ Support Layer. Underneath that is a quilted 4lb. cooling gel foam layer which is something unique to the NECTAR mattress, providing unbeatable support relief. Then comes a 3″ Transition Layer followed by our Hi Core Memory Foam. This is a dense foam that is great for pressure relief. The combination of these top levels give NECTAR the soft and velvety feel that we have become known for. Purple mattresses rank higher on the firmness level, which can be too firm for side sleepers, and some back sleepers. Sleeping on a mattress that is too firm can cause unwanted pain, whereas NECTAR falls right in the middle at a 5, which we believe is the perfect amount for all sleepers to achieve comfort.

“NECTAR is just 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.“


9.7/10 NECTAR vs 9.2/10 Purple

NECTAR gets almost a perfect score when it comes to motion transfer. It is just the right amount of firmness to support your back, and the right amount of softness to ensure you will not feel your partner kicking or tossing on the other side of the bed. NECTAR offers a 6″ Foundation Layer which is essential for providing good support and making sure that motion transfer doesn’t occur. NECTAR rated 9.7 for motion transfer, almost 100% by Purple was rated at 9.2, which means their mattress cannot absorb the same amount of motion as NECTAR.

NECTAR is unmatched comfort,
support and perfect sleep.
