Highlights

  • We think Leesa has mastered the perfect mattress for the “average sleeper” – it offers a great balance between soft and firm, has cooling technology and built-in airflow, and won’t leave you sinking into the foam like quicksand.
  • The Leesa scored high in our testing, but also has a happy (and well-rested) bunch of customers who rate it a 4.7/5.
  • The Nectar mattress has a pretty happy (and well-rested) fan base – they have overwhelmingly positive reviews and fewer than 3% of customers end up returning their Nectar mattress.
  • Its proprietary cover is specifically designed to keep out dust mites – which is good because this mattress should last you a while.
  • Nectar is so confident that they make the best mattress for the price that they offer a lifetime warranty and trial period that lasts an entire year.

Layers inside the mattress

The Leesa mattress is made with three layers of high-quality foam delivering airflow, contouring pressure relief and core support.

  • Top layer: Air-flow cooling and freedom of movement
  • Middle layer: Pressure relieving memory foam
  • Bottom layer: Dense core support; adds durability and structure without feeling too firm on top
