Leesa Vs. Nectar: Two All Foam Mattresses

Here are my thoughts on these two great mattresses:

You really can’t go wrong with either of these mattresses.  Both are built for universal comfort.  The Nectar is a bit more sturdy and firm, while the Leesa does a better job of keeping you cool at night.  I love the cover on the Leesa so much that it is hard to find me anywhere in the house without my Leesa blanket.

I have now tried all of the Leesa products except their sheets.  Feel free to ask any questions about the Leesa products in the comments section.

Nectar is my top budget pick, I simply haven’t found better value in a mattress.  To highlight my feelings on the value, I just purchased a Nectar for my mother-in-law.

Leesa Mattress Review
It's hard not to root for Leesa. As a B-Corp their mission is to serve the community, and they go above and beyond their duty. In addition, the cover on this mattress is so great that I use their blanket everywhere I go. As a side sleeper I feel like the Leesa gives me the perfect hug. Living in Phoenix is hot, but the Leesa's avena foam keeps me cool.Read full review
When standing on it you feel a bit of sinkage
Amazing Cover, so amazing they used the same materials for a blanket and pillow
Avena foam layer keeps it cool
1 in 10 program is unique to the industry
Nectar Sleep Mattress
If they can improve their shipping and customer service they would be a highly recommended company, as they make a great mattress. Update March 2018. Both their shipping and customer service have improved as Nectar has grown. I purchased one for my MIL in Feb of 2018 and she received it in 4 days.Read full review
Long shipping delays (solved, they increased production)
Poor customer service (improved, as any good company they learned from their mistakes)
Sturdy Mattress
Exceptional Value
Amazing Value (Best budget mattress available)

    What do you think about the pillows that come for free with the Nectar and with the leesa?

  4. JP May 5, 2017 at 9:53 pm

    I read an older review on a different site that said that Nectar mattresses ship in 5-7 days. Yet, you mention it takes longer than that. Which is it?

      I ordered my Nectar mattress on Memorial Day weekend and it took just under two weeks to arrive, June 12. They do state on their website to expect delays so I was happy that I got it so quickly. My 2 free pillows arrived with the mattress.

      The mattress itself looks very well made and I happened to have several friends and neighbors over when it arrived so I made a party out of it. A few of them also ordered mattresses after seeing and testing mine. One neighbor ordered two mattresses for her kids and got the order in a week (without pillows). Although they all love their mattresses, I am finding mine to be too hard for my side sleeping.

      Now lets see how well they honor their return policy!

        Thanks for the feedback on the Nectar. It sounds like they have really improved on the shipping issues that they had a few months ago. You may want to try the soft side of the Layla, it’s a bit more expensive than the nectar but they have a similar return policy if you don’t like it. Since it has a soft and firm side you basically get two chances to get the perfect side sleep comfort level. As for Nectar’s return policy; my understanding is that the money comes back quick and the mattress will get donated to a local shelter or charity. Please update me about the timing, but I would expect you would have your money back within 2 weeks

      It took a month and a week for my Nectar to show up. The free pillows came about a week earlier, but I haven’t heard from anyone this year that comes close to 5-7 days.
