Nest Bedding Love Bed Mattress Unboxing

UPDATE: New Love Bed design for 2016 has launched, see new Love Bed unboxing here & read updated Nest Love Bed Review here

One of the biggest concerns I hear from my readers when they are searching for a new mattress, especially foam mattresses, how is it for sex? This is a fully warranted and valid concern. Foam mattresses have got a bad reputation as being not very good for sex, a reputation that has merit to some degree. However, Nest Bedding’s newest mattress creation, the Love Bed, is aiming to change all that.

It’s the first online mattress I have seen that’s been specifically designed with both great sex and great sleep in mind. Watch the video below as my wife and I unbox our brand new Nest Love Bed mattress.

Nest Love Bed Mattress Review After Night #1

  • Great bounce – no mattress designed for great sex would be complete without good bounce. The Love Bed definitely delivers in this area. With 3″ of natural latex as the top layer it does a great job of maximizing bounce for amorous activities. It’s not quite at the same level as an innerspring in terms of bounce, but it’s not far off.
  • Cool cover – the cover uses a bamboo blended fabric. It has a great softness, good thickness, breathability, and a classic…yet subtle modern style. The design is very understated. I like the simple aesthetic touches of grey along the perimeter and within the top piece of fabric.
  • Disappointing edge support – I still need to do all of my formal edge support and other sinkage tests, but after my initial quick checkout of the edges I’m a bit disappointed. It’s not that they are any worse than any foam mattress, but they aren’t any better either. I expected a little better edge support for a mattress optimized for sex.
  • Good deep compression – even though it’s only 10″ thick it does a good job of maintaining deep compression support without bottoming out. This is most likely due to the convoluted foam core. It’s tough stuff and does a good job of keeping the mattress cool and providing great support
  • Impressive trial period – 100 days has become basically the standard in terms of trial period, which the Nest Love Bed mattress has. However, they coupled this with a 365 day comfort guarantee. This means you have 100 days to test the mattress…if you don’t like it you can return for a 100% money back refund, but you also have a full 365 days on your comfort guarantee, which will allow you to exchange it for any other Nest mattress within 1 year. Really good stuff.

One other fun bit in in the box…the official Nest Bedding Love Bed bear! Pretty cute idea.

  1. Kind of in the same boat as Laura in trying to decide between the nest and the Leesa, while the bounce may be better on the nest, I’ve read (here and in other reviews) that the Leesa does a pretty good job there as well. Looking forward to the full review of the Nest and am curious to see if it sleep substantially cooler then the Leesa does. Also would have to wonder if the firmer Nest has better edge support the the medium, and just how much firmer it is.

    • Hi David,

      Couple of things here.

      1) While the Nest may have a little better bounce, I don’t want to discount the bounce of the Leesa, which is quite good and definitely better than the average foam mattress. If the Nest is an 8 out of 10 on the bounce scale, the Leesa is a 7-7.5.

      2) You can find my full review of the Nest Love Bed here:

      3) In terms of cooling, Leesa and Nest Love Bed are effectively the same.

      4) I cannot say for sure if the Nest Love Bed’s edges would be better in the firm, but based on my experience with other firmer mattresses this is usually the case. It’s probably not going to be as good as an innerspring mattresses edges, but should be a little better than the soft and medium options.

      Let me know if there are any other questions I can help with.


  2. I’m a back sleeper (occasional side sleeper) who likes a firm, sturdy bed, though I don’t mind a pillowtop as long as there’s structure underneath it; my boyfriend sleeps on his side or stomach, currently on a 4-inch memory foam pad over a broken-down old mattress. We’re looking at moving in together and getting a new bed. Do you have any thoughts on which factory-direct mattress would give us the best compromise between my need for support and his need for softness? We agree we both like bounce, and motion transfer is not a concern, since we sleep with our bodies touching.

  3. Hi! I’m trying to decide between the Leesa and Nest’s Love Bed. Having tried the Love Bed in person (I prefer the medium), I like it for side sleeping. However, I sometimes sleep on my back and worry that it won’t be supportive enough. Would you say say that the Leesa has a similar amount of give (for side sleeping) with more support, or is firm enough so as to be in a different category of firmness compared to the Love Bed?


    • Hi Laura,

      You’re description is spot on. I find that the Love bed has a little more give and bounce, but not as much support as the Leesa. Which can make it great for side sleeping, but as you say, not quite as good for back. The Leesa has a very balanced hug and balanced body contouring, while still providing great support for back. It doesn’t have quite as much bounce as the Love Bed. So it’s a matter of giving up a little bounce in order to gain a better support.

  4. I’m torn between the Nest and Brooklyn bed. They seem so similar except for the extra inch of latex in the Brooklyn and organic cover on the next.

  5. Ah yes, edge support. Edge Support is a tough one. On one hand, I could put a firm piece of foam around the side, but then you have a harder part of the mattress if you sleep near the edge. Coil mattresses have a border wire, a thicker steel bar running around the edge, but I don’t like using metal coils for a sleep surface. So, I focused on building a very well engineered mattress, focused on making is more comfortable than the others, and focused on giving it some bounce and durability.

    • Wow, thanks for stopping by Joe! For all of my readers, this is Joe Alexander, founder of Nest Bedding.

      Thank for the explanation, that rationale makes sense to me. As you say, edge support seems to be a really tough area for every foam mattress. Personally, I like the mattresses that have the edge support foam system. But as you say, it’s give an take…if you add that piece you may end up not wanting to sleep near the edge.
