Battle of the beds: Nectar vs. Purple

What’s in a name?

Would that which we call a mattress by any other name would be as…comfortable? (Translation: Just because it arrives in a box doesn’t mean it’s any less comfy.) Plus, there’s no shortage of options when it comes to Nectar mattresses vs. Purple.

Let’s get comfortable.

When you find a mattress you love, it doesn’t matter what “type” of sleeper it’s made for. What matters is that you wake up rested and ache-free. And in the great Nectar vs. Purple faceoff, there’s something for everyone.

  • Nectar: Medium firmness makes Nectar mattresses a great choice for all sleeping positions.
  • Purple: Plush, medium or firm options offer no-pressure support for everybody (a huge hit with side and back sleepers).

It’s the inside that counts.

When it comes to Nectar mattresses vs. Purple, keep in mind that composition and construction are just as important as aesthetics. Better materials = better quality, more comfort and longer-lasting durability.

  • Nectar: Premium layers of responsive memory foam hug your body while superior cooling technology keeps you at the perfect temperature all night long.
  • Purple: Hybrid technology features exclusive Purple Grid™ and individually wrapped, responsive-support coils for comfort and responsiveness that adapts to your body.
  • Both: All materials are rigorously tested and certified by CertiPUR-US® to meet strict emissions, content, performance and durability standards.
