Tomorrow Sleep vs Nectar Mattress
You're getting a memory foam mattress either way, but is Nectar better, or the Tomorrow Sleep hybrid model?
Last Updated: January 2, 2020
Nectar and Tomorrow Sleep are two of the most popular memory foam bed-in-a-box mattresses on the market. Once you move past the memory foam similarity, though, the two beds actually have a couple distinct differences that you should be aware of.

Tomorrow Sleep has stopped selling mattresses and other bedding products. As such, this information below about Tomorrow Sleep is no longer relevant.
Tomorrow Sleep Mattress vs Nectar Synopsis
If you’re short on time, here are the primary differences between these two brands.
- Options — Tomorrow Sleep offers two different beds, an all-foam model and a hybrid model. The Hybrid is available in multiple firmness levels. Nectar is an all-foam bed that comes in just one comfort level.
- Body Type — The Tomorrow Sleep Hybrid is the best option for heavy people (250+ lb) due to its coils.
- Sleeper Type — We think all three mattresses are good for all types of sleepers. However, we’d push primary side sleepers toward Tomorrow Sleep for maximum pressure relief.
- Price/Value — The Tomorrow Sleep All-Foam and Nectar mattresses are very similar in terms of pricing, but Nectar often comes with two free pillows.
In our eyes, those are the major decision points between Nectar and Tomorrow Sleep. However, buying a new mattress is a big deal. It’s always a good idea to do as much research as possible. Keep reading to learn more about each mattress.
First, it’s important to note that Tomorrow Sleep offers two different bed-in-a-box models. The first model is their all-foam bed that is comprised of three foam layers, two of which are memory foam. This is the company’s most affordable option.
The next is their hybrid bed, which contains pocketed coils and layers of memory foam. This model is a little more expensive, but it’s going to be the more supportive/durable option of the two. Additionally, this model is available in two different firmness levels. You can choose between a Medium Soft Hybrid version and a Medium Firm Hybrid version.
All in all, it’s nice that Tomorrow Sleep offers a few different options. Everyone can appreciate a little flexibility. The Nectar mattress comes in just one option (all-foam, medium-firm).
More Ideal For Heavy People
As you will find out below, Tomorrow Sleep and Nectar have quite a few similarities. However, one major advantage Tomorrow Sleep has over Nectar has to do with your body weight. In particular, we think the Tomorrow Sleep Hybrid model is the best option out of the three for heavy folks (250+ lb). We say that primarily because the Hybrid model (as its title implies) contains coils. To be specific, it contains individually pocketed coils. Nectar and the other Tomorrow Sleep model, on the other hand, are comprised entirely of foam.
We almost always recommend big body types choose beds that contain coils for two reasons. First, coils are just more durable than the dense support foams that all-foam beds use for their foundations. Second and more importantly, coils are more supportive than dense support foams. Coils provide bi-directional support, meaning they’re able to compress, but also provide a little resistance against pressure. This extra resistance is more ideal to support the weight heavy people exert down onto their mattress.
All in all, if you weigh over 250 lb, the Tomorrow Sleep Hybrid is going to be the way to go. Alternatively, you can always check out our list of the Best Beds For Heavy Sleepers.
Preferable For Side Sleepers
First, let me just preface this entire section by stating that we think all three beds are great for all types of sleepers. All three mattresses will work just fine regardless of whether you consider yourself a primary back, stomach, or side sleeper.
However, if we had to choose, we’d say the Tomorrow Sleep all-foam and Tomorrow Sleep Medium Soft Hybrid models are slightly more ideal than Nectar for primary side sleepers. Ultimately, side sleepers want softer mattresses that are a little more delicate and gentle around their pressure points and the models listed above deliver in this regard.
Overall, we think both the Tomorrow Sleep all-foam model and Medium Soft Hybrid model land around a medium on the firmness scale. For comparison purposes, we think Nectar lands a little closer to medium-firm. As such, the two Tomorrow Sleep models referenced above provide a tad bit more pressure relief than Nectar. The two beds are extremely soft, comfortable, and do a great job of cradling your hips and shoulders when you’re on your side.
Nectar is one of, if not the most popular budget memory foam bed-in-a-box on the market. While we do think it’s a great deal, Tomorrow Sleep isn’t too far behind as you will find out in the next section.
Nectar Offers The Better Deal
Comparing MSRPs, a queen size Nectar mattress goes for around $800, the TS all-foam queen size costs about $800 and the TS Hybrid queen goes for around $1,000. However, it’s important to note that Tomorrow Sleep offers big discounts. In fact, it seems like they might be liquidating inventory. It might be a good idea to check TomorrowSleep.com to see what kind of sale they are running.
It’s also worth mentioning that Nectar typically includes two free pillows with each mattress purchase. That means you’ll likely be able to purchase a new queen size Nectar bed and two pillows for less than $800!
We mentioned this above, but thought it was worth mentioning again. The Nectar Mattress comes with a Forever Warranty, while Tomorrow Sleep mattresses comes with a 10-year warranty. In years 1-10, both warranties cover pretty much the same things (indentations greater than 1″, manufacturing defects, etc.). However, in years 10+, Nectar will repair, re-cover, or replace the mattress if defects are discovered. The only cost to you is the $50 transportation fee each way. Overall, Nectar’s Forever warranty is great for people who desire long-term protection. After all, buying a mattress is big deal. You want to protect your asset.
Nectar Mattress vs Tomorrow Sleep Review Verdict
Congrats, you made it to the end of this post. Thanks for reading this far. Yes, both beds have several commonalities, but, in our eyes, the decision between the two beds comes down to three primary factors.
Your Weight — If you weigh over 250 lb, the Tomorrow Sleep Hybrid is the best option due to the extra support provided by the individually wrapped coils.
Your Primary Sleeping Position — All three beds are good for all types of sleepers, but if you spend a lot of time on your side, the Tomorrow Sleep all-foam or Tomorrow Sleep Hybrid Medium Soft version are going to be your best bets.
Your Budget — If you want the most bang for your buck, Nectar wins out due to the bundle deal they regularly offer.
