Do I need a Box Spring?
This is one of the biggest questions we receive, so here’s the quick answer: absolutely not. The great thing about a Nectar mattress is that it uses five layers, including three different types of memory foam, to give you the support and comfort that you require no matter what surface you lay it on. Whatever foundation you prefer will work with a Nectar, be a divan, traditional frame, or even an adjustable base.
That being said, many of our users prefer to have a box spring for the additional elevation it provides. That’s totally fine! Feel free to use it if that’s your preference. The Nectar foundation is also a great addition to your sleep experience that has been designed to provide optimal support to your mattress as you sleep. The best part about Nectar is that it’s equipped to handle pretty much any sleep situation you put it in regardless of how you set it up. It’s this quality that sets Nectar apart from a more finicky mattress, which might require the box spring or an adjustable base for full effect. Just know that your Nectar mattress is ready to sleep on directly out of the box — no additional accouterments needed. That’s an empowering feeling for any sleeper.
