    While the Nectar mattress can take 24-72 hours to fully expand, you can safely and comfortably sleep on yours right away. This is because Nectar’s memory foam mattresses ship vacuum sealed, which allows them to be delivered timely and cost effectively.

    There are a ton of factors that go into the expansion time, so here are the big ones: air pressure, humidity, and ventilation, all become variables in how long it takes before your mattress is sleepable. If you’re living in an especially humid or poorly ventilated area, it might be a good idea to have a backup place to sleep — just until your mattress gets into its optimum shape. The adjustment period of your Nectar mattress will vary as per the surrounding.

The Nectar mattress is designed with your comfort and support in mind, so giving it that extra time to become what it’s supposed to be isn’t doing your Nectar a favor, it’s doing you a favor!

    A Totally Expanded Mattress Measures 11 Inches in Depth

    Nectar knows that your excitement is palpable, so when you think that your mattress is ready to go, grab a tape measure and see if it hits eleven inches deep. If it does, you’re good to go: place your comfiest sheets on there, toss on a couple of pillows, and get ready for the sleep of your life. If it’s NOT quite ready yet — that’s ok too. Organize your bedroom, read an interior design book, and transform your bedroom into a sleeping palace worthy of a Nectar bed. Remember, patience is a virtue, and nowhere is that virtue more rewarded than the first time you get to sleep on that mattress. Don’t forget to complete your sleeping experience with Nectar’s memory foam pillows.

    Nectar totally understands if that feels like its a long time to wait, but think about it this way: with the Forever Warranty, your mattress is going to be with you for life. While Nectar knows it’s exciting to get something new and to want to sleep on it right away, giving it that little extra time to get to know you and your room is going to make for a happy mattress. And a happy mattress equals a happy sleeper.
