Because Nectar and Tuft & Needle have so much in common, there are only a few criteria to note when choosing which of these mattresses is the right choice for you. See below for some factors to consider.
Firmness: None of these mattresses offer multiple firmness options, so you’ll need to rely on the brand’s definition of firmness. Nectar doesn’t share much about its firmness levels (all models are listed as “medium-firm”) while Tuft & Needle goes into a little more detail. Still, fitness and feel are subjective and will rely greatly on how you feel while you sleep on the bed at home. This is where the trial comes into play.
Breathability: Both Nectar and Tuft & Needle claim to make mattresses that defy memory foam’s reputation as a hot sleep surface. However, if breathability is your goal, a hybrid design will take a mattress’ air flow to the next level. Tuft & Needle has one hybrid model, while Nectar offers the option to turn any of its beds into a hybrid.
Trial period: This is one of the key differences between Tuft & Needle and Nectar. If you’re picky about your mattress (as you should be!), you’ll want to consider the fact that Tuft & Needle offers a 100-night sleep trial, while Nectar gives you an entire year to test out your mattress.
