75%According to customer feedback, all Nest Bedding memory foam, hybrid, and latex mattresses have earned average to above-average satisfaction ratings.
Durability Memory foam and hybrid mattresses tend to degrade faster due to low-grade polyfoam used in the support core. Latex, on the other hand, is exceptionally durable.FairGoodVery GoodLatex mattresses tend to be highly durable, and with an average lifespan of at least seven years, the Q3 is no exception. Nest’s hybrids are also highly durable, but the brand’s memory foam mattresses deteriorate more quickly.
Motion IsolationLatex and memory foam mattresses are designed to absorb and minimize more motion than innersprings or hybrids.Very GoodGoodVery GoodAccording to customers, Nest’s memory foam and latex mattresses effectively isolate motion. The hybrids also absorb motion to some extent, particularly the Hybrid Latex.
Sex Most hybrids feature a blend of softness and bounciness that many couples find conducive for sex. Latex and memory foam are less responsive, and may not be as good for sex.FairVery GoodFairMemory foam models from Nest may, as well as the Q3, may not be responsive or bouncy enough for some couples. However, hybrid models from Nest are generally responsive enough for most couples.
ConformingMemory foam and latex mattresses typically conform closely and may help alleviate pressure points; hybrids tend to conform less and provide less pressure relief.Very GoodGoodVery GoodThe Q3 and Nest’s memory foam mattresses conform closely for improved spinal alignment and pressure relief. The Hybrid Latex also conforms fairly well, but other hybrid models may not sleep as closely.
Temperature NeutralityHybrid mattresses tend to retain less body heat and sleep cooler than models made from memory foam or latex.FairGoodGoodNest’s memory foam and blended latex mattresses can trap heat and sleep uncomfortably warm, but the brand’s hybrids and natural latex models sleep somewhat cooler by comparison.
Off-gassingOff-gassing may occur in hybrids and latex mattresses, but these models tend to produce less odor than those made exclusively of foam.FairGoodFairOur customer feedback indicates that Nest’s memory foam and latex mattresses tend to emit more odor than the brand’s hybrid models.
Edge SupportHybrids usually provide more edge support than memory foam and latex mattresses, and are usually on par with traditional innersprings. PoorVery GoodPoorHybrid mattresses from Nest are well reinforced along the edges and minimal sinkage has been reported. The memory foam and latex beds, on the other hand, offer little to no edge support.
NoiseHybrids tend to produce more noise than latex or foam mattresses, primarily due to the spring and coil components of the support core.ExcellentFairExcellentNest’s memory foam mattresses and the Q3 are virtually silent. The hybrids may produce some squeaking sounds.
Ease of Moving and RotatingAll mattresses are relatively heavy but some weigh much more than others, and this can make them difficult to move and maneuver.GoodFairFairNest’s memory foam mattresses are relatively lightweight, as is usually the case with these models, while the hybrids and the Q3 are fairly heavy.

How Is the Mattress Shipped?: Most Nest Bedding mattresses are compressed, vacuum-sealed, and shipped in a box measuring 18W” x 48L” x 18H”; the Alexander Signature Hybrid ships in a box that measures 80″ in length. According to Nest Bedding, mattresses should fully expand within 24 to 48 hours of unpackaging. Customers must unpackage their mattress within 30 days in order to qualify for exchanges and warranty coverage.
Where Do They Ship?: Nest Bedding ships mattresses to all addresses in the U.S., including Alaska and Hawaii. Nest Bedding also ships mattresses to select international locations; to receive a delivery price quote, customers with overseas addresses should click the ‘International Checkout’ prompt when purchasing a mattress from the site.
Delivery Fee: Free standard shipping is available to all customers in the contiguous 48 states. Expedited shipping is also offered for an additional charge. Customers in Alaska and Hawaii should expect to pay roughly $150 for mattress delivery. Shipping charges for international customers will vary by their current address.
Delivery Policy: The delivery policy for Nest Bedding is as follows:

  1. All Nest Bedding mattresses are made-to-order. The expected manufacturing time for each mattress is two to four business days. Once the mattress has been made and shipped, most customers will receive their delivery within one to five business days.
  2. Nest Bedding utilizes FedEx and other local couriers for all deliveries. Mattresses are not normally shipped as ‘Signature Required’, so customers will not need to be at home to receive the mattress on the delivery date.
  3. Customers can monitor the status of their order with a tracking number that will be emailed to them. Nest Bedding urges customers to check their spam email folder if they have not received a tracking number after the mattress has been shipped.
  4. Although Nest does not offer White Glove delivery, the company will help customers locate White Glove delivery providers in their local area.  

Old Mattress Removal: Because they utilize FedEx and other local couriers, Nest Bedding does not offer old mattress removal services.

    • Indentations that do not exceed 1″ in depth; this is considered normal wear and tear.
    • Off-gassing or other issues associated with temporary mattress odors.
