Finding the right mattress is not an easy task. Thankfully, shopping around in a
mattress store no longer needs to be part of that process. Not only can you buy your
mattress in a box online, but you can also find thousands of testimonies and reviews
on the internet to ensure you buy the perfect bed. If you have ever considered buying
a new mattress online, you’ve probably discovered many different brands - including
BedInABox® and Nectar. These companies are two of the most popular brands in a very
competitive market of online mattress retailers, and for good reason. Not sure which
brand you should go with? This blog post will dive into the differences and
similarities between our products and Nectar’s mattresses, and will highlight the key
points shoppers should consider before buying a new bed.
BedInABox® is the first company to sell mattresses that have been compressed, rolled,
packaged into a small-scale box, and delivered to your doorstep. We began
brainstorming how to build a machine that could compress and package a memory foam
mattress in 2004. By 2006, BedInABox® was in full operation. Because we were the
first ones to create and sell affordable and luxurious mattresses in a box, we have
more years of experience than our competitors. Nectar, for example, was founded in
2016 - 10 years after we launched the industry.
Back sleepers have given strong reviews to both BedInABox® and Nectar mattresses,
commenting on how supportive they feel during rest. However, if you are looking for a
firm mattress, think twice about purchasing from Nectar. Users agree that, over time,
this competitor’s product feels like it is slowly but surely sinking. This sinking
feeling is largely due to the construction of Nectar mattresses, which features a 1
inch top layer made entirely out of their memory foam as compared to BedInABox’s 3
inch top layer. This lack of firm support can also affect how comfortable side and
stomach sleepers feel throughout the night. People who consider themselves to be
combination sleepers (you alternate between back, side, and stomach sleeping), should
consider a hybrid mattress – made of memory foam and springs - like our BedInABox®
Dual Hybrid® option.
Both of these brands are top considerations when it comes to eliminating motion
transfer. According to internet reviews and customer testimonies, both BedInABox® and
Nectar are great at isolating motion thanks to their memory foam layers. If you’re
looking for a way to avoid waking your partner up when you toss and turn, investing
in either of these two brands is the way to go.
Number of Options
The BedInABox® team has listened to and carefully read through all of our reviews,
and has taken them into consideration when brainstorming how to improve and develop
even better products. We acknowledge that every sleeper has diverse needs, so we have
developed a selection of six different mattresses in order to accommodate these
individual sleep preferences. Our goal as a company is to provide a better sleeping
solution for every customer, which is why we offer six mattresses with varying
heights and levels of firmness. By comparison, Nectar only offers three different
mattress models on their website. That being said, both companies do extend a broad
selection of mattresses for the whole family by offering their products in six
different mattress sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King.
Adjustable Base Options
At BedInABox®, we offer two adjustable base options: the MotionInABox™ 1.0 and 2.0, while
Nectar offers only their Adjustable Bed Frame. Regardless of the different adjustable base
options offered, BedInABox® and Nectar have both mastered the art of creating a high-quality
adjustable base. Nectar’s Adjustable Bed Frame, similar to the MotionInABox™ 2.0, offers
features such as:
Head and foot elevation
Wireless remote control
Multiple programmable sleep positions
Easily assembled, no tools required
However, the MotionInABox™ 2.0 comes with additional features such as a remote flashlight,
underbed lighting, and a voice-controlled wand for hands-free use. Both BedInABox® adjustable
bases come with a 10-year warranty compared to Nectar’s 3-year warranty.
We stand by our adjustable bases and are confident that they will prove to be lasting and
beneficial to your sleep quality. To learn more, check out our Adjustable Base Buying Guide.
BedInABox® vs. Nectar - what's new?
BedInABox® continues to innovate and bring new and exciting products to the sleep
space. Most recently, we introduced our MotionInABox™ 2.0 full-body adjustable base,
our Upholstered Platform and Headboard and our Original Hybrid mattress. This year,
Nectar had to overcome some product challenges. The brand had to recall nearly 700
mattresses that did not meet flammability standards.
