See Why Customers Love Their Douglas Mattresses

Douglas has over 11,000 5-star reviews from Canadians sleepers.

Best sleep I have had in 10 years.

My wife and I are extremely happy with our Douglas mattress.

For probably the last 10 years I would wake up every morning with back pain from sleeping on our mattress.

Since we got our new mattress I literally wake up pain free and I couldn't be happier. The adjustable bed frame is awesome. It also has stopped probably 80% of my wife's snoring. Thanks 😊

I checked out Casper, Endy and Douglas, did some research and thought Douglas the best.

Easy order and delivery, and sleeping on it was a dream! I move all over the mattress to try different angles and positions...honestly the best sleep, I never want to leave it!

David H. Verified Douglas Buyer

Amazing! Didn't know I was getting a terrible sleep until I got a Douglas.

They are so comfortable I bought a second one right after the first!

Spencer H. Verified Douglas Buyer

Best mattress yet.

I was skeptical of the claim that the mattress reduced shoulder pressure for side sleepers, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Best overall comfort I've experienced from a mattress yet.

Better than Endy

I purchased a Douglas mattress and pillow 6 months ago, and I can't believe how much my sleep has improved. I used to wake up tired and sore, and that's all gone now.

Shopping online was super easy, with different payment options available. Once purchased, my Douglas mattress, cover, and pillow were shipped quickly right to my door!

I was a little worried about buying a product I have never tried before, but I'm so happy I did.

An all-Canadian product with just the right amount of firmness for a great night sleep, and at a great price!

My previous attempts of deciding which foam mattress to go with had left me down to Douglas and Endy with no clear winner.

The bed I slept on at an AirBnB in Brandon MB was so comfortable I had to rip the sheets back and see what I was sleeping on.

It was a double-size Douglas.

Janet M. Verified Douglas Buyer
Thornburn, NS

I'm usually a hot sleeper but I find my mattress keeps me at a comfortable temperature.

The edge support is stellar! This was very important for me as I tend to sit on the edge of my bed quite often.

I find the firmness to be perfect for me overall.

I love my Douglas mattress!

I work the night shift 12 hours as a nurse, and we are on our feet a lot. When I finish work, I can't wait to get home and climb into bed.

It's so comfortable I fall asleep almost immediately and I stay asleep.

My back feels so much better now that I am sleeping on this mattress.

100% recommend.

Bought this mattress after our friends recommended it and I am so happy we did!

I used to sleep 3 hours a night and now with this mattress I'm getting my 8 hours of sleep again!!!

Best mattress I have ever slept on.

After a lot of research, I felt that the Douglas Alpine was the best mattress for my bad back. It’s amazing and such a solid sleep!

5 Reasons Why Canadians Choose Douglas Alpine over Nectar

Douglas Alpine Has More Cooling Features than Nectar

Both mattress brands feature breathable covers. Both have thick layers of cooling gel memory foam to help dissipate heat. But only Douglas Alpine offers Polar® active temperature balancing to keep the mattress temperature within a comfortable range all year-round.

Nectar offers a similar feature, but only for its US customers. Sorry, Canada :/

"We have never slept better in our lives. They don’t lie: it’s a cool sleep, no sweating!!"

Douglas Alpine Has Better Edge Support & Motion Isolation Than Nectar*

We commissioned licensed engineers to test Douglas Alpine and Nectar Premier on these two important mattress qualities. Douglas beat Nectar for both motion isolation and edge support, and it wasn't even close!

Douglas Alpine had the best motion isolation rating of over 115+ mattresses tested, so you'll enjoy restful and restorative nights with Douglas! Oh, and Nectar Premier stood out, too. It had the worst edge support rating the engineers ever recorded.

“It's so nice to be able to spread out and not feel the person next to me move. This bed is so comfortable. It's the first time I've slept good in over a year.”

Douglas Is Made in Canada

Douglas Alpine is proudly made in Canada using Canadian-sourced materials you can trust. Our mattresses are made by manufacturers across Canada. Nectar is an American company that assembles their mattresses from materials sourced from China, Vietnam, USA, Malaysia, and Mexico.

”What sold me [on Douglas] was the firmness, sustainability, eco-responsibility, and that I was supporting a Canadian-made product.”

Douglas Owners Are Bigger Fans than Nectar Owners

Nectar has sold a lot of mattresses in the United States. That makes sense; it's a really big market. But not only is Douglas the top-selling mattress of Canada's largest independent online mattress company, Douglas owners are also far more likely to rave about their mattresses than Nectar owners.
