This month we’re doing something a little different. Instead of reviewing this great Nectar Mattress, we decided to have a friend and fellow blogger, Rachel from Tools2Tiaras.com try this mattress for us. WHY? Well, I wanted to see what someone who’s NEVER slept on a memory foam mattress before thought of the Nectar mattress. They claim it’s the “bed of your dreams” but would Rachel have sweet ones?
1. Why did you decide to switch from spring to memory foam?
I heard many good things about memory foam but I was very skeptical. I started waking up with back aches and headaches and never associated it with my mattress. I travel a lot and noticed when I was away I would feel much better in the mornings. I finally put two and two together that it was the mattress! That’s when I decided to try a memory foam.
2. How difficult was it to get the mattress out of the box?
I couldn’t believe how easy it was to get the mattress out of the box and to set it up from beginning to end! I actually set up a queen mattress all by myself! Amazingly easy!
3. What do you find different about sleeping on the Nectar Mattress vs. a traditional innerspring mattress?
The Nectar Mattress definitely felt different the first week. It took a little longer to fall asleep because I was so used to sinking 10 inches into my old mattress. Ok, maybe not 10 inches but I really sunk in into my old mattress and I would automatically roll (slide) to meet my husband in the middle. Once I fell asleep, I slept the entire night! After a week, I was used to the “new feeling” and I notice I fall asleep much quicker than in the past and I don’t wake up sweating during the night. It REALLY does keep you cooler.
4. Are there any tips you could share with our readers about set-up or sleeping on the mattress?
The mattress does have an odor when you first open it. I didn’t notice the odor until it was set up for about an hour. I received a tip to sprinkle baking soda on the mattress and pillow and then vacuum it. That worked pretty well, but it still had a faint odor. After a week it was gone. I’m really having the best nights sleep I’ve ever had!
5. What would you tell readers who are thinking about buying a Nectar Mattress for the first time?
I have been mattress shopping for a while now and it’s scary to make such an expensive purchase and be stuck with it. I went to EVERY mattress store and everything I saw was over $1200. Anything that was priced lower was literally a cheap quality mattress that felt like you were at camp. I really wanted a good quality mattress because I’m not getting any younger and I also know that a good night sleep is important. The Nectar Mattress is priced SO GOOD. I mean you can not find a good quality mattress from $500-$900! Nectar also gives you 365 days to sleep on the mattress, but you’ll be hooked after 1-2 weeks. I would also say to be patient, you really need to give it at least a week. You have to get used to the different feeling.
I always slept with two pillows and this is the first time I’m sleeping on one pillow. I have ten pillows (NO LIE) that I would rotate in order to get comfortable at night. The joke with my husband when we went to bed was I would always say, “Someone (not a robber, a pillow switcher) came in and messed with my pillows”
