The Nectar Premier is one of Nectar Sleep’s bed-in-a-box mattresses that aims to bring cooling, comfort, and support to sleepers of all kinds. Like the original Nectar mattress, the Premier is a thick memory foam bed that provides plenty of pressure relief. Unlike the original Nectar, the Premier uses dual-action cooling technology to keep you cool throughout the night.

But is this new memory foam mattress right for you? To help you decide, I’m going to discuss the Nectar Premier’s feel, construction, and more below. Read on and get more details of the Nectar Premier mattress review, or skip down to my review summary for some quick info.

Is the Nectar Premier a Good Mattress for You?

Before we get into all the details, I’ll give you a quick overview of who the Nectar Premier could work best for. I’ll also let you know if this mattress is not the best choice for your needs. Take a look at both of the lists below to decide if the Nectar Premier could work for you.

Who I recommend the Nectar Premier for

  • Side sleepers looking for lots of body contouring and pressure point relief should be happy on this soft memory foam mattress.
  • Back sleepers who like a soft feel should also enjoy the Nectar. Its gel memory foam layer does a great job filling in the lumbar region for some additional pressure relief.
  • Anyone who loves the feel of memory foam should enjoy this mattress! It uses plenty of thick memory foam to offer the hug-like feel these folks are looking for.
Testing Nectar Premier Mattress
I think the Nectar Premier is a great choice for side sleepers.

Who I don’t recommend the Nectar Premier Mattress for

  • Stomach sleepers will probably find the Premier too soft. I’d recommend these sleepers check out our best mattresses for stomach sleepers to find a firmer mattress.
  • Heavy sleepers (over 250 pounds) probably won’t get the support they need from the all-foam Nectar Premier. I’d recommend these folks opt for one of our best mattresses for heavy people instead.
  • Anyone looking for a bouncy mattress may not find this all-foam bed to fit the bill. I’d recommend they take a look at one of our best innerspring mattresses instead. These beds will have a bouncier feel and also make it easier to change sleeping positions throughout the night for combination sleepers.

How Firm is the Nectar Premier Mattress?

Now that you know the basics, let’s dive into how this mattress feels. Remember, feel is subjective and a mattress will feel different to you depending on your body weight and preferred sleeping position. Because of this, I like to ask my coworkers for their firmness opinions as well and average them into my final score. 

Nectar Premier Mattress Firmness Scale

I find the Nectar Premier to be a medium-soft mattress. I gave it a 6 out of 10 on the mattress firmness scale. For reference, the industry standard for medium-firmness is 6.5 out of 10. The Premier offered plenty of pressure-relieving sinkage, and felt great when I was on my side and back.

Nectar Premier Mattress Performance

To give you a more objective view of the Nectar Premier, I used a few of my specialized tools that are meant to mimic real-life experiences you might have in bed, like sleeping with a partner and sleeping with different types of pain. I’ll detail the results of those tests below, but first I’ll share how this mattress works for different types of sleepers.

Testing the Nectar Premier Mattress in Different Sleeping Positions

Sleepers of different weights need different levels of support. Additionally, your preferred sleeping position is going to affect how a mattress feels for you. Take a look at some of my recommendations below.

Is the Nectar Premier a Good Mattress for Light Sleepers (Under 130 lb)?

  • Light Back Sleepers – I think this is a nice mattress for light back sleepers, especially those looking for a really pressure-relieving feel.
  • Light Side Sleepers – I’d readily recommend this bed to these sleepers, who need a plush feel to give them some sinkage at the hips and shoulders.
  • Light Stomach Sleepers – The Nectar Premier is a touch too soft for most of these sleepers. Stomach sleepers need a firmer feel to keep their hips from sinking out of line with their shoulders.
Stomach Sleeping On The Nectar Premier Mattress
Stomach sleepers will probably want a firmer bed to keep their hips elevated.

Is the Nectar Premier a Good Mattress for Average Weight Sleepers (130 – 250 lb)? 

  • Average Weight Back Sleepers – I’d recommend this bed to most average weight back sleepers. It offers enough support that these sleepers should be able to maintain a proper spinal alignment, but it’s soft enough to really contour to the curves of your lower back. 
  • Average Weight Side Sleepers – Side sleepers should really like this bed. It has a soft, pressure-relieving feel that should give them some much-needed contouring.
  • Average Weight Stomach Sleepers – I don’t think stomach sleepers will find what they need from this soft mattress. I’d recommend a firm mattress instead.

Is the Nectar Premier a Good Mattress for Heavy Sleepers (over 250 lb)? 

  • Heavy Back, Side, and Stomach Sleepers – This bed doesn’t have the level of support that heavy sleepers need. I’d check out our roundup of best mattresses for heavy people instead.

Nectar Premier Mattress Pain Relief Performance

The first test I ran on the Premier shows how it relieves pain. A mattress that helps pain will exert low pressure on sensitive areas like the hips, shoulders, and lower back. Alleviating pressure in those spots can help prevent pain and stiffness over time.

To test out the Nectar Premier’s pressure relieving capabilities, I used a pressure map. I laid the map down on the bed and hopped on top. I tested out a few different sleeping positions, and the map recorded the pressure each caused. You’ll see my results in the graphic below. Low pressure areas will be blue to green on the map, and high pressure areas will be yellow to red.

Nectar Premier Pressure Map

Back Pain — As you can see the map was all blue with tiny hints of green while back sleeping. I think the top layer provided plenty of pressure relief around my lower back. I think side and back sleepers with back pain would do well on the Nectar Premier. However, I wouldn’t recommend this bed to stomach sleepers with back pain because they need a firmer mattress to prevent their hips from sinking into the bed. One of our best firm mattresses might be a better choice for stomach sleepers.

Shoulder Pain — The map is all blue around my shoulders while on my back and showing a little bit of pressure around my shoulder on my side. This shows the Nectar Premier’s a great option for back sleepers with shoulder pain and should work for most side sleepers with shoulder pain. However, any side sleepers with severe shoulder pain may want an even softer option for more cushioning. And again, I think this is too soft of a mattress for stomach sleepers with pain since they need a firm bed to promote healthy sleep posture.

Hip Pain – You’ll see mainly blue and green around my hips on both my back and side. I’d say this is going to be a nice mattress for back or side sleepers who suffer from hip pain. Again, I’d steer stomach sleepers with hip pain to a firmer bed, so their hips can be aligned with their spine.

Feeling the Nectar Premier Mattress Cover
I love how soft the Nectar Premier’s cover is!

Nectar Premier Mattress Performance for Couples

If you sleep with a partner, you’ll want a few extra features in your mattress. The best mattress for couples is one that absorbs motion, is responsive enough for sex, has sturdy edges, and sleeps cool. See how the Nectar Premier stacks up on these factors below.

Motion Transfer

Motion transfer is a measure of how much movement travels from one side of the bed to the other. A mattress with low motion transfer is great for couples, because it will make it harder to feel disturbed by a restless bedmate.

To test out the Nectar Premier’s motion isolation, I dropped a 10-pound steel ball onto the bed from different heights and measured the resulting disturbance with a seismometer. You can see the results of this test below.

Nectar Premier Motion Transfer Scale

These are great motion transfer results, and show you’d only be mildly disturbed by a restless partner on this bed. To test out the Premier a little more, I had a coworker jump on the bed and roll around next to me so I could see how disturbed I felt.

I barely felt any motion at all when we tried this, so I’d say the Nectar Premier is a great choice for anyone who sleeps with a restless partner or pet. Its memory foam layers should do a good job of preventing too much motion transfer.

Sex

The best mattress for sex is going to be one that has a bit of bounce. Unfortunately, this bed has little bounce, so you might have a tough time switching positions during sex. I’d keep in mind that you usually have to sacrifice good motion absorption for bounce though, so it depends on which factor is more important to you as a couple.

Cooling

Though some memory foam mattresses sleep hot, this bed actually sleeps pretty cool. That’s because it has a cooling cover and its top layer of memory foam has a gel infusion with Phase Change Material, which keeps it from trapping heat.

Edge Support

Finally, I tested out the Premier’s edge support. Edge support is a measure of whether or not you’ll be able to sleep all the way on the edge of the bed and still feel supported. It’s a great feature for heavier people and couples who need to spread out over their entire sleeping surface.

I was actually pretty impressed by the Nectar Premier’s edge support. I felt supported enough to sleep near the edge of the bed, which isn’t always the case with soft foam mattresses.

What is the Nectar Premier Mattress Made Of?

The 13-inch thick Nectar Premier mattress is made with plenty of memory foam to offer a pillowy feel. All its foams are CertiPUR-US® Certified, which means they’re free of any harmful chemicals or heavy metals. Read on below to see exactly what’s inside this bed.

Nectar premier logo

Cover — The Nectar Premier’s quilted cooling cover is made with polyethylene fiber. These fibers wick away heat and provide a cool-to-the-touch sensation, which is a great perk for hot sleepers.

Comfort Layer — The top layer of this mattress is made of a 3-inch breathable layer of gel memory foam. This foam is surface infused with Phase Change Material to prevent the mattress from trapping body heat and encourage airflow.

Transition Layer — Next up is a soft foam layer. This 3-inch layer has a slow response to pressure and works with the layer of memory foam above it to provide plenty of pressure relief to sleepers.

Base Layer — Rounding things out is a 7-inch support layer made of high-density poly foam. This layer provides overall support and durability to the mattress.

Nectar Premier Mattress Unboxing and Off-Gassing

The Nectar Premier is a bed-in-a-box mattress, which means it ships compressed in a box. You’ll have to unbox it at home (I’d recommend doing this with your partner or a friend).

Though I typically recommend waiting 24 hours for decompression, with this mattress, I’d wait at least 48 hours after unboxing before using it. Some customers said it has a strong off-gassing smell, so you’ll want to give it plenty of time to air out.

My Final Thoughts about the Nectar Premier Mattress

Still not sure if the Nectar Premier mattress is for you? I can’t make the decision for you, but I can leave you with a few last thoughts to help you decide for yourself.

My favorite things about the Nectar Premier mattress

My favorite thing about the Nectar Premier is its great pressure relief. This medium-soft mattress is a great fit for side sleepers looking for plush comfort. It might also be a nice fit for sleepers who deal with shoulder pain. If you’re a back sleeper looking for a new mattress to replace your old Nectar Lush (which has been discontinued), I’d also consider the Premier.

I also appreciate that the Premier sleeps cooler than the original Nectar. Most memory foam mattresses tend to trap body heat and sleep hot, so I really appreciate the extra cooling technology in the Nectar Premier.

Back Sleeping on the Nectar Premier Mattress
I feel great on my back on the Nectar Premier.

My Nectar Premier mattress complaints

My biggest complaint about the Nectar Premier is it’s not going to work for most stomach sleepers and heavier folks. This is an issue with most all-foam beds, so I’d recommend sleepers looking for a more supportive bed take a look at some of our best hybrid mattresses instead. You can also check out the Nectar Premier Hybrid for more support.

I’ll also note here that customers commonly complain about the original Nectar’s strong off-gassing smells. I didn’t think the Premier smelled any stronger than a typical bed-in-a-box mattress when it was unboxed. But if you are worried about odor, I’d recommend opening your bedroom windows and letting your new mattress air out for 48 hours before adding sheets to the bed.

How Much Does the Nectar Premier Cost?

Price is a huge factor in any mattress purchasing decision. Take a look at the chart below for pricing and sizing information. And be sure to visit our Nectar mattress coupon page to get a deal on this bed.

  • Unlike the Premier, the Casper has a more medium-firm to firm feel.
  • If you struggle with back pain, the Casper’s zoned support system might be a good fit for you. It should offer some extra lower back support where you need it.

Nectar Premier Mattress vs Nectar Premier Copper Mattress

  • The Copper is a medium-firm to firm memory foam mattress.
