In this section, we’re going to take an in-depth look at what makes up each of these mattresses. We’ll explore the differences and explain how they influence the sleeping experience. Then you’ll know which mattress is best for you!
The Brooklyn Bedding Signature is a hybrid mattress with 3 firmness options. Choose from soft, medium, or firm based on your sleeping position and comfort preference.
The Signature’s top layer is crafted from their proprietary polyfoam called TitanFlex. TitanFlex foam is engineered to offer similar pressure relief as memory foam with the ease-of-movement of latex foam. This means you won’t sink in the way that you will on the Nectar.
The next foam layer is called Energex foam, which delivers further cushion while ensuring that you don’t sink in too far. The support core is made up of pocketed Ascension coils, which provide give and support at all the right areas. This breathable layer is one of the reasons why the Signature is cooler than the Nectar.
Finally, a layer of high-density support foam balances the mattress and adds to its longevity.
The Nectar is a 3-layer memory foam mattress with a medium-firm feel. The top layer is made from a cooling gel memory foam layer. This layer has a distinct memory foam feel, so you’ll sink in and feel embraced by the mattress. This hugging sensation is different from the balanced feel that you’d experience on the Signature.
The transition layer is made from a responsive polyfoam that balances the memory foam’s contouring effect. It’s this layer that’s to thank for how easy it is to move around on the Nectar. Unlike some memory foam beds, you’ll never feel stuck.
The final layer is a high-density foam base that adds stability and edge support. Because this layer is made from motion-absorbing foam rather than coils like those found in the Signature mattress, it better isolates movement.
We tested each of these beds at the Mattress Advisor lab. Take a look at the side-by-side comparison of how they performed.

The Nectar mattress earned a high score in our motion transfer evaluation, demonstrating its ability to dampen motion before it spreads across the bed. Couples sleep more soundly on beds that isolate motion, and Nectar’s thick foam layers excel at this. The Signature earned a good score, but not as high as the Nectar.
The Brooklyn Signature is one of the highest scoring mattresses that we’ve tested when it comes to pressure relief. We found that our sleep testers experienced nearly zero areas of high pressure when lying on their sides, a position that often leads to excess pressure at the hips and shoulders.
The Nectar also earned an excellent score in this test, but the Signature stands out as a top pick for side sleepers.
The Brooklyn Signature outperformed the Nectar mattress in our spine alignment test. Supporting healthy spine alignment is important for everyone, but especially so for anyone who struggles with neck or back pain. Thanks to the support of innerspring coils and the contouring cushion of the Signature’s proprietary foam layers, it’s a great bed for people with back pain.
The Brooklyn Signature stands out with its pressure relief, multiple firmness levels, cooling properties, and spinal support. But the Nectar’s deeply cradling feel is perfect for memory foam mattress lovers. Thanks to excellent motion isolation and edge support, it’s better than the Signature for couples.
