We know that you’re busy reading a long comparison post can be a bit boring. So, we’ll make things easier for you to take in with this quick overview of the most vital points here:
If you’re hungry for more details, we’ve got everything prepared below. Read on to find out more about the Nectar, Purple, and Leesa mattress.
Given that Purple and Leesa have a variety of mattresses online, we chose one model only for this post. For Purple, we reviewed the Hybrid Mattress with 2 inches Purple Grid. Then, we reviewed the Legendary Mattress from Leesa. For Nectar, we have no other choice but to pick it’s only Memory Foam Mattress.
The Nectar Memory Foam Mattress is the brand’s premium bed that is designed to hug your body and keep you cool. It has 5 layers of “life-changing comfort” that make up its 11 inches profile. So, let’s start with its Quilted Gel Memory Foam Mattress Cover that feels soft and airy. You’ll be tempted to make tons of angel figures every time you sleep on it even with your face down. Under its cover, it has a layer of Gel Memory Foam which helps distribute weight equally around the mattress. Thus, you don’t have to worry about lumps forming anywhere around your mattress surface. For its third layer, it has the Adaptive Hi Core Memory Foam which keeps your body on the mattress. This is not the kind of mattress that feels like quicksand as you stay longer in bed. For the fourth layer, Nectar Memory Foam Mattress has the Base Foam which can stabilize its memory foam layers above. The Base layer serves as the reinforcement support of the entire mattress. Lastly, there’s the Bottom Mattress Cover which helps make sure that the mattress stays in place. Whether it’s on the floor or bed frame, this cover prevents any mattress slippage incident.
How does Nectar Memory Foam Mattress feel? We consider this mattress as a medium-firm bed which has a 6.5 rating on a scale of 1 to 10. On the firmness scale, this means that it feels just right to give you the comfort and support you need. If you don’t like a too soft or too firm mattress, this one can give you the best sleep.
The Nectar Memory Foam Mattress has a removable cover that is made of Tencel long-staple fiber. Thus, this quilted cover feels cooler than standard mattress covers. It also has the Gel Memory Foam which can distribute body heat on the mattress. No more suffering from warm or hot temperature unless it’s winter and you need to turn on the heater.
Based on its construction, this Nectar mattress has a medical-grade Visco elastic memory foam. It also has a 9.2-grade hi-core transition foam that goes with its high vegetable base core support foam. This means that it has enough premium materials to guarantee its comfort, support, and durability. If you share your bed, you can move freely without disturbing your partner’s sleep. You can even enjoy a glass of wine without spilling a drop if you accidentally placed it on your bed. Furthermore, it can work with all kinds of bed frames.
The Purple Hybrid Mattress is advertised as the bed that is “engineer for everybody”. So, let’s take a look at its materials and construction to see if it’s true. The Purple Hybrid Mattress has a Premium StretchMax cover that is very comfy and stretchy. You won’t even feel its Purple Grid layer beneath it. Its 2 inches thick Purple Grid has a gel material that can adapt to your body shape and sleep position. Next to this are two 1 inch transition foams on the top and bottom part of its support coil system. These polyfoams with a density of 2 PCF provide additional layers of comfort and structure to the entire mattress. For the main source of support, the Purple Hybrid Mattress has Responsive Support Coils that are 7.5 inches tall. These coils help the Purple Grid layer to extend the lifespan of the mattress.
If you loved the feel of the Original Purple Mattress, perhaps the Purple Hybrid Mattress can catch your interest too. Based on the firmness scale, this Medium-Firm mattress has a 6.5 rating on a scale of 1 to 10. This is slightly firmer than its original version but its No Pressure Purple Grid layer eliminates the feel of coils underneath.
If the first Nectar Memory Foam Mattress has cooling solutions, this Purple Hybrid Mattress can offer you something too. First, it has the Premium StretchMax Cover which feels luxuriously cool due to its ultra-breathable side panels. Its hyper-elastic polymer material that acts as the comfort layer doesn’t even retain heat. This makes it easier for the 2 inches Purple Grid to promote better airflow and keep you cool.
As a hybrid mattress, this version maximizes its coils to guarantee its support. Its Purple Grid’s personalized support includes cradling your shoulder and hip. At the same time, it provides firm support to maintain your back’s natural shape while you sleep. Its Dynamic No Pressure Support Purple Grid can feel soft or firm right where you need it. Thus, it can provide relief on the key areas of your body and promote a healthier spinal alignment. Also, one of the main pros of this hybrid mattress is its motion isolation capacity. It’s a highly responsive mattress but doesn’t transfer disruptive motion which works great for couples. Its Purple Grid layer provides limited edge support but its innerspring coils reinforce to prevent the edge from collapsing.
With a 12 inches profile, this legendary mattress sure has more layers of materials to unravel. First things first, it has the Legend Cover which is exclusive for the Legend version only. This cover is made of hypoallergenic and organic cotton with merino wool fabric. Guess what, these are recycled materials but Leesa still managed to make its cover soft and sustainable. Under this cover is the comfort layer which is designed with punched holes that can wrap your body in a soft hug. This 1 inch responsive foam provides just the right amount of bounce to prevent you from being stuck in the mattress. The next layer underneath it is 1 inch pressure-relieving memory foam. This Memory Foam Recovery layer is designed to provide enhanced body-contouring comfort to different body shapes and sizes. Underneath this memory foam is the Relief and Stability layer which is present in the Legend mattress only. This is composed of 1.5 inches tall micro-pocket spring layer and 1 inch transition core support foam layer. For its final layer, Leesa Legend Mattress has a Quick Response layer. This is composed of more than 1,000 pocket spring base system that is 6 inches tall. It also has a 1 inch core support base which works well with its spring system for an active response.
The Leesa Legend Mattress has a medium feel. On a scale of 1 to 10, we’d say that it has a 5.5 rating. This puts it on the softer range of medium mattresses that suit various types of sleepers. It has lots of springs underneath but it also has a lot of foam layers to balance its softness. Since it is a responsive mattress, you don’t have to worry about getting stuck in your spot.
Are a warm or perhaps a hot sleeper? No worries since this legendary mattress can save you from bathing in your sweat. Its comfort layer has enough holes to ensure the bed’s breathability. Thus, sleeping on it means getting a cool and comforting hug.
When it comes to the mattress support, this Leesa mattress has a super cuddly but supportive construction. Its relief and stability layer provides targeted relief to specific pressure points specifically on your shoulders and hips. It can also virtually eliminate any disturbing motion transfer across the mattress due to its advanced support and high-quality construction. Meanwhile, its thickest layer provides enhanced edge-to-edge support which increases its durability, stability, and motion isolation capability.
Now that you’ve reached this far, let’s get into their differences. First of all, Nectar is the only brand that doesn’t offer other mattress models among the three. If you’re looking for a brand that offers a variety of mattresses online, Nectar is not for you. But when it comes to freebies, Nectar offers 2 free premium pillows with every purchase of a mattress. When it comes to the length of the warranty, Nectar offers 365 days of night home trial and a forever warranty. Meanwhile, Leesa and Purple offer 100 nights of trial nights and 10-year limited warranty only. If you want to make the most of your trial nights and warranty you now have an idea of which brand to pick. If you’re looking for a wide range of sizes to choose from, the Purple and Nectar can give you that. The Purple Hybrid Mattress comes in Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Split King, and California King. The Nectar Memory Foam Mattress doesn’t offer Split King but it has a Twin. On the other hand, the Leesa Legend Mattress doesn’t offer Twin and Split King.
