Company Overview

Launched in 2017, Nectar hit the ground running with the ultra popular original Nectar Mattress, vaulting to the top of the list in the ultra competitive online mattress space. They did it through a combination of high quality foams at an economical price.

With its popularity, Nectar expanded its lineup through the DreamCloud and Awara mattress to appeal to different market sectors. Both mattresses immediately gained in popularity and sore backs all across America have thanked them ever since. Quick delivery is key and Nectar has multiple dedicated US based assembly factories to help meet their demand within days of an order. And Nectar backs their beds with an industry leading lifetime warranty. Nectar knows the importance of an excellent customer experience.

In 2019, Nectar changed its name to Resident to better describe themselves as they ventured beyond the bedroom into home furnishings. Nectar constantly develops, sources and tests new materials to achieve that “sleeping on a cloud” mantra. They have come up with 3 models (all indifferent price categories) to achieve their goal. We’ll get into the feel of the Nectar Premier Copper next, but first, let’s take a look at the construction and materials that go into this award winning mattress.

Construction & Materials

Nectar Premier Copper Hybrid mattress layersThe Cover

Nectar’s top-of-the-line Premier Copper mattress starts with a soft, breathable poly-Nectar Premier Copper Hybrid mattress coverblend cover.  Similar to the Premier the Nectar has woven cooling materials into the fabric.  However, what sets the this mattress apart is the copper fibers woven into the cover.  Copper is one of the best heat conducting materials available.  The cover is the most advanced cooling cover on the market.  This plush, comfortable cover is actually COLD to the touch!

Comfort Layers

The Nectar Premier Copper captures its plush feel from the 3 layers (5 inches) of  comfort and pressure relief) in this 14 inch mattress.

  1. In the first comfort layer, Nectar introduces 2 inches of gel infused
    Nectar Premier-Comfort-Sleep

    breathable memory foam with Active Cool HD.  This contour and comfort layer provides pressure relief with cushion and support in the most sensitive areas (shoulders and hips).  This allows for proper spinal alignment and a more comfortable night’s sleep.  Active Cool HD is a phase change material that reacts to your body temperature and pulls heat from the body without returning it.  The breathable foam allows air flow to remove excess heat from the mattress.

  2. Below the cooling foam is 2 inches of Nectar’s ultra supportive Active Lift layer. This is not only a pressure relieving foam but it is the higher dense foam that will have more energy absorption to cradle to the body like a cloud should.  The gel layer above pulls you in, so you don’t feel like you are stuck in one position for the entire night.
  3. Below the cooling foam is 1 inches of Nectar’s dynamic support foam. This is not only a pressure relieving foam but it is the higher dense foam that will have more energy absorption to cradle to the body like a cloud should. The dynamic foam provides a firmer responsive feel that helps promote proper spinal alignment.
Support Layer

For support, Nectar chose a 8′ Infinity Innerspring Coils With Extra Edge Support.  These individually pocketed coils allows for consistent proper support for those sleepers up to 200 pounds. Eight inches of individually wrapped coils provide breathable edge-to-edge support and cushion your body’s curves. The perimeter is constructed with thicker coils for enhanced edge support.

The Base

The shift-resistant lower cover is on the bottom of the mattress. It is designed to prevent slippage to the base holding the mattress. While the bed won’t slip around at night, the lightweight nature of the foam comfort and support layers can cause movement of the mattress when one gets out of bed in the morning.  However, with the grip base: no slip-and-slide here!

Additionally, the grip base has additional reinforcement to provide greater edge support – allowing you to sleep all the way to the edge of the Nectar Premier Copper mattress with no fear of falling out!


Nectar top-tufts the mattress, securing the cover to the top foam layer. This is important to keep the mattress parts from shifting. The mattress surface is flat. There are no hills and valleys to feel underneath when you lay on the mattress. For those that seek a flat surface from which to sleep, look no further

Does it Sleep Cool?

YES! Nectar loaded the Premier Copper Hybrid with the most advanced technologies to give you the best cool, comfortable and dry night’s sleep. It starts with the copper infused and phase change material in the cover that pulls heat from the body and wicks away moisture. The gel foam layers employ Active Cool HD phase change material that reacts to your body’s temperature.   The technology is heat activated and pulls away heat from the body (think osmosis from Jr. High science class!).  Finally, the coil support system promotes airflow, enabling the heat to escape the mattress.  All three layers are designed with air circulation in mind so after the gel pulls the heat away, airflow removes the heat from the mattress. The result, a cool to cold temperature throughout the night keeping you dry and well rested all evening.

How about Edge Support?

Edge support comes from the 8 edge reinforced high caliber steel coil support system.  But it has to go through 5 inches ofNectar Premier Copper Hybrid has excellent edge support comfort and responsive foam before you get to it.  To help with edge support, Nectar relies upon the special cover that has reinforced edges and a no-grip base.  Versus other mattresses, the Nectar Premier Copper Mattress edge support rates very good.  That being said, you can take full advantage of every inch of the Nectar Premier Copper mattress and sleep all the way to the edge without fear of collapsing edges or falling out.

Comfort & Feel

With the Nectar Premier Copper Hybrid mattress, Nectar is moving away from the more budget friendly online mattress in-a-box category that it’s so well know for into the more medium-to-high budget range.  The question is: Is it worth it?  Well, we think that with the investment in cooling technology, a robust coil support system and the higher quality more conforming foam – they nailed it.

Nectar starts with the cool-to-the-touch antimicrobial silky smooth cover that has actual Copper fibers woven within.  Not only is copper antimicrobial, but it is one of the best heat conducting materials which acts to pull heat from the body.  Your first contact with the Premier Copper will be a cooling feeling.  Next, Nectar layered in the thickest layer of conforming foam of any Nectar model.  Because of this, the Premier Copper is ideal for side sleepers.  The foam will take you in, relieving pressure points in the shoulders and hips (where side sleepers need it most), helping to align the spine properly.

This being said, the 8″ of Infinity innerspring coils with extra edge support in the Premier Copper offers plenty of support.  Even for those of us in the 250lb range.  Sore backs will begin to melt away as the core foam supports the body.  The combo of the conforming comfort layer and support system will keep your body in a restful position all night long.

Lighter back and stomach sleepers (less than 130 lbs) can get away with Premier Copper Hybrid but may want to look towards the firmer Nectar Premier Hybrid or original Nectar Hybrid Mattress.

The additional conforming foam provides plenty of sink.  As a result, the Premier Copper Hybrid feels more like sleeping “in” the mattress as opposed to “on top” of the mattress.  While there is a 2 inch layer of responsive foam, the larger layer of plush foam gives a more memory foam energy absorbing feel.  The Nectar Premier Copper Hybrid will tend to keep you in one place throughout the evening.  In short, the significant cooling technology and comfort upgrades make the Nectar Premier Copper Hybrid is a steal in this budget range.

  • On Sandman’s Firmness Scale, we rate the Nectar Premier Copper a 6 out of 10.
  • Side and combo side/stomach, side/back sleeping styles will get the most comfort.  Exclusive back and stomach sleepers should look towards the Nectar Premier and Nectar Mattress
  • The mattress has a bit of sink, but cooling cover, infused with copper, and the phase change gel foam comfort layers will keep you cool and dry all night long.
  • Edge support is very good for the average to heavier weight sleeper. The Nectar Premier Copper’s 8″  support layer and reinforced encasement prevents that falling-off-the-bed feeling.

Motion Isolation


Very Good! While the Nectar Premier Copper Hybrid has a coil support system, Nectar has employed several techniques to mitigate motion transfer.  First, the 5 inches of pressure relieving gel helps to dampen any transfer.  The open celled technology within the foam does not transfer motion so you will not feel your partner throughout the night.  Second, the coils are individually wrapped to help isolate the support system.  If you seek absolute motion isolation, look towards the all foam Nectar Premier.  Otherwise, the Premier Copper Hybrid should have you sleeping soundly and undisturbed throughout the night.

How does it arrive?

The Nectar Premier Copper Hybrid arrives compressed and wrapped up in a box for easy shipping and moving to the bedroom.  It’s crazy to think that a king size mattress with powerful springs can be compressed, but it can. And, with no sacrifice to quality and durability. Some people ask if compressing the springs will hurt their integrity. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Springs are actually shipped compressed all over the world (to save space). The springs integrity is damaged if they are pulled excessively or bent out of position. But, the way Nectar compresses its mattresses, they keep their shape and strength. The box arrives via Fedex. Simply unbox the mattress. Rest it on the bed frame and remove the plastic wrapping and the bed will decompress before your eyes. You can begin sleeping on the bed and enjoying a restful night sleep that same day. Moving most sizes will be a 2 man job, especially if going up stairs. Check out the Dimensions below for more details.

What’s Nectar's Trial Period and Warranty?

Nectar offers a whopping 365 night trial period, while most companies offer 100Lifetime Warranty logo nights. If for any reason the Nectar Premier Copper is not the mattress of your dreams within the trial period, you can either return it for a 100% refund. Here’s how it works:

  1. The trial begins when you RECEIVE the mattress (the Fedex delivery day).
  2. You can sleep on it for a full year (all 4 seasons if you like). As there can be a slight break-in period, Nectar asks that you not initiate a return during the first 30 days.
  3. If it’s not the mattress of your dreams, reach out to Nectar via email to customer service, call them or start a chat online, provide your name and order number and that’s it! There are no questions asked!
  4. Returns: Nectar works with you to coordinate a donation if possible or a recycling pickup as a last resort on a day of your choosing.
  5. Full 100% refunds (no fees!!) are issued within days of the return.
  6. One very important item to note: For promotional mattress purchases that include free accessories such as pillows, a mattress protector, and sheets, you may keep, donate, or dispose of the products included with your purchase. The value of your free items will not be deducted from the total value of your mattress return, regardless of what you choose to do with them.

Nectar doesn’t stop there!
Nectar covers the mattress with a lifetime warranty for the entire life that you own it. This does not include normal wear and tear, but any manufacturer defects are covered. If there are impressions greater than 1.5 in, Nectar will replace your mattress for the entire time you own it.
