Support isn't one and the same as firmness. Deep support and spinal alignment is essential to a healthy night's rest. Overall, these mattresses have had some mixed reviews when it comes to support. Most customers are happy with the support right after purchase, but some felt like they weren't supported as time went on.
For those that sit on the edge of their mattress in the morning, edge support is very important. These mattresses do well with edge support at first, but some found that it wasn't as supportive as they'd like
In addition to having good support, having a mattress that really lasts is key for shoppers. We all want to find a mattress that is just as cozy as it was day 1 on day 1001. However, these mattresses are not rated well by some reviewers on durability and some have experienced breakdown after only a short time. If you are considering buying for nightly use, do some research on the reviews and return policy before purchasing.
Purchased one of these mattresses a few months ago and there are body impressions in it already that never spring back. Neither of us are heavy either -- I am only 135 lbs and my partner only ways 129 lbs. It is absolutely ridiculous.View More Reviews
I don't know what they did to the floor model to make it feel good, but the one that came delivery is terrible. Within three days, there is sagging on my side and I feel like I am going to roll off the bed at night. This is absolutely the worst thing for my vertigo that I could ever imagine.
Giving two stars because luckily I don't have the bed anymore. It was a terrible bed. Started to sag within a week. Not sure what they put in this thing, but it isn't enough of something. Just really strange after liking it so much. Now, I am going to just order something online. I can't deal with any more shady mattress salespeople after this whole ordeal.
Been sleeping on one an Eastman House bed since the 90s. I don't complain.
Really not durable at all. Sagging within days -- my husband has decided to sleep on the couch at night since neither one of us can sleep as we are tossing and turning night in and night out. I can't believe the sales people get away with selling this garbage.
If you like a soft bed, this may be the bed for you, but I thought the floor model was firmer than this one that I have. It is just not firm at all and hurts my back at night. Not for me.
I've bought 2 Eastman House mattresses over the years and I absolutely love them. The thing that I love the most is that I can sleep on a plush bed that stays the same firmness over the years.
I got one of the Eastman House pillow top models and for the first 3 months, it has been divine. But I am noticing some sagging start to occur where I sleep. I am going to rotate the bed and I hope that helps. It does concern me that the good times are over.
It has been 6 months and already my pillow top has visible indents in it from where I sleep. I am a little overweight -- 200lbs 6'0'' but that should be ok, right?
I wanted a pillow top for the extra comfort, but I didn't expect that I would be sinking into the mattress at night. It is a little too soft to my liking.
This is an superb mattress. My husband and I sleep soundly through the night and we love the feel of the mattress. No complaints from us.
finally a great night sleep! and a affordable price. after spending $8500.00 on a supposedly best set, we were miserable, too heavy to move, uncomfortable bed. I was doubtful, we only had rotten bed 18 months, I was sleeping on the sofa. looking to buy new sofa, I saw sale and we figured what do we have to loose? quarter of the price and have slept like a baby every nite since ! thank you!
We bought an Eastman House mattress in January of 2017. I need a firm mattress, and believe paying for quality is important in something you’ll spend 6+ hours a night in. It always $1500 but It’s supposed to have a 10 year warranty and we even bought the recommended over-priced cover for an additional $150 to help keep the mattress “under warranty”. In late October 2018 I started having back issues, that required frequent visits to a chiropractor and most recently to a med...ical doctor to get some relief. We’ve taken pictures, filled out forms and waited 3 weeks to hear back from the “Mattress Rep” because the Furniture Store we bought it from has to receive credit back from Eastman to help us. We were told nothing is wrong with the mattress, it’s “just settling”, and to rotate it. We’ve rotated this mattress monthly since we’ve owned it. The side support has completely failed, but they focus on “dips” in the mattress. So it looks like unless the local furniture store wants to keep a repeat customer happy, I’m out the $1600+ and will have to pay for a new mattress. DON’T buy from this company...their warranty coverage is a joke.
We bought a queen & king bed last year. We spent more on them than we’ve ever spent on beds thinking we were buying high quality. My husband has back issues and his back hurts worse and the impression where he sleeps never goes back to normal. I don’t have back issues but I have a difficult time getting comfortable. We’re very disappointed with our beds as they aren’t comfortable and don’t hold their shape.
Still sleeping on an Eastman House mattress that was bought in ‘96, but it is nearing the end. Wore very well, silk on one side, wool on the other. Durable and comfortable. Would love to purchase it again, but not available in mid-west. Heard company was sold year after our purchase, and quality isn’t the same. Finding a replacement isn’t easy. Move seems to be online shopping, but I need to lie on a bed and have a good idea of what I am getting. Would buy this bed again in an instant!
I wanted a firm mattress & the mattress store recommended this mattress. Worst purchase I ever made. Within 5 months it has permanent indentations & major sagging. It’s only me & I’m not large. Didn’t know till mattress was delivered that Eastman says to rotate mattress every 3 wks for first 6 months. Wish I knew that before I purchased it but I reluctantly, faithfully did this. It did not make a difference. My back is killing me & can’t purchase another mattress right now because of the corona virus. Wish I hadn’t thrown out the previous one.
My husband and I were not sure if we would like the new mattress but turns out it's perfect. We are sleeping better and loving the new memory foam. Thanks for the help R&FView More Reviews
We were a little scared to change from a mattress with springs to the new memory foam. WOW, what a great choice though. The memory foam conforms to your body and is so comfortable. The aches and pain of growing older have disappeared when sleeping on this mattress.It just supports your every need when you sleep. Would buy this mattress again in a minute after using it! Thank You Raymour and Flanigan
My mother bought a mattress 1 and half years ago. They came out, checked the mattress, told her she wasn't getting a new one cause she sweat on the mattress. Only took pictures of where she sweat which was one spot, it's not like they are going to resell the mattress. And they should correct the guarantee that if you sweat don't call us. Some guarantee they have. They didn't even check that the mattress was sunk in on both sides. When I sat on it I fell in it. And we have rotated the mattress. I will never buy from them again and I will tell all my family and friends as well. Thanks for nothing Raymour and Flanigan.
I am writing to this hoping someone on top will hear me out and re-consider the sales tactics. Your employees are salesman, not doctors. Customer knows best. After 9 wonderful years of having my 'firm' bed from Sleepy's it was time for a new bed. I would have returned to Sleepy's for my mattress needs, but they closed down their Waterbury, Ct. location. And so, because I had done business with R&F in the past with furniture, I thought I'd try buying a mattress from R&F.
Now from my sleeping experience, which is above all other professional bedding experiences, I was determined on getting me another 'firm' bed. Who knows my back more than my back? So I walk into the Waterbury Location and immediately I was approached by a sales rep. I told her that I am looking for a mattress. As we walked to the back of the store, she asked what type of mattress I had in mind and I told her a firm mattress. She then begins to ask me what side do I sleep on? I told her that I am a side sleeper. She then said, that for a side sleeper plush is the recommended mattress. I told her well thats against everything I believe in. I then told her, that I walked into R&F with my mind set on buying a firm mattress due to my previous mattress experience. She has me try out two plush queen beds.
One was too soft, but the other at the time felt like it may have been what I needed. She says, I'll give you 15 minutes on the mattress and I'll come back to see what you think. She comes back to what felt more like 10 minutes and asked what did I think. (I now know a mattress decision takes way more than 15 minutes.) I told her the mattress does seem that it will do the job. Plus, hearing all she had to say about plush being for side sleepers made me feel like I may have been wrong with my own idea of a firm bed. Even a manager came by to help me understand that side sleepers use plush. He even stated, 'firm is one of the most returned mattresses.' They also convinced me to buy the platinum warranty just in case it doesn't work out. I make the deal. What a regret!
I should of listen to my body! The bed arrives and my first night on it was great! But on the 3rd day, I woke up with with a stinging feeling on my hip side. I went back to R&F and spoke with the manager and he said, it may be that my body is adjusting to the bed and that I should give it more time because I have platinum coverage. I leave thinking he may be right about me adjusting, so I go back home. But I now see, more time sleeping in a bed that wasn't for me wasn't good advice, medically speaking. Even a healthy back can get harmed sleeping on a bad mattress. The manager who said I should give it more time was really saying to me, leave the knife in your hip some more, I'm sure your body will adjust. What ridiculous advice from him having no medical background, and stupid on my end to have listened! About a week later with sleepless nights and painful mornings, I wake up in tears and in much more pain.
Now, I went back to the Waterbury location. I see the same saleswoman and I tell her please get me out of this bed. She says, she's gonna get the manager. I think his name was Jim. I don't know what was with Jim that day, but he would not listen to my experience with this plush bed. It seemed as if he was upset that I was exchanging my bed and would not give me his ear. I wanted to give him my reasons on this whole plush idea for side sleepers may not be for EVERYONE. I wanted to tell him my experience on this plush bed and that maybe what is recommended may not apply to all customers. (During my research on mattresses, I read an article that strongly agrees that firm bed is for side sleepers) But seeing that Jim was acting irritated and insensitive to me, I felt so offended that I left pissed off out of the store and made a complaint to the customer care department of R&F on the manager of the Waterbury, Connecticut location.
Hours after walking out. I received a call from Newington, Ct R&F. The manager tells me that he heard through the district manager that I needed help exchanging my mattress and that he wanted to help me out only if I come to the Newington location. I wasn't too happy about the half hour drive there, but I really needed this issue to be resolved and was willing to invest my own time. The manager there was awesome. He heard me out and even agreed with me that the plush idea for the kind of built size of a man I am wasn't a good bed referral. A Firm mattress should of been recommended, due to my size and previous experience with a firm mattress.
I also expressed to him that I had wished I made the first decision or first mistake on my bed and not R&F. I felt now my warranty will be used up on what I believe was R&F fault by not listening to me before the initial sale, and the complaints after the sale. He told me not to worry. He will waive the 95.00 delivery fee and make this sale like a first time sale. But that if I don't like the new firm mattress, then I would have to pay the 95.00 for delivery. I agreed. I was very happy to know I finally am going to get some real sleep... not so fast!!
Here's the topper!! The second bed arrives. The delivery guys begin moving the bed out of the truck. One of the guys is out of the truck and the other is inside the truck sliding the bed out. When the bed was about to exit the truck, the guy inside the truck lets the bed drop to the ground. The bed bends at the corner due to the impact. I immediately said to the guy, 'Hey!, thats a thousand dollar bed and you shouldn't of done that. And especially in front of the customer, me!' I asked the other delivery guy in Spanish, because he knew little English, what happens if I reject this bed and don't sign because I seen the way my product was handled and now I'm concerned it may have been damaged? He replied, 'It'll be ok. You should see how we handle them at our warehouse.'
I was shocked that he said that, but at the same time I thought maybe the beds can handle such abuse so why fuss for another one. My new mattress is gonna get abused at the warehouse, like the driver said, before I even see it anyways. They put the bed down, I inspect it and lo and behold!! Now, theres a visible hump in the middle of the bed and a slope on the top corner of the bed where the driver let the bed drop. Complaint was filed again on the drivers handling of my product and his remark about how they handle all other mattresses at the warehouse. Finally, I am hoping this matter falls in the right hands and that I am dealt with immediately. I will be continuing my complaint until I am heard. If not, I will do whatever it takes so that I am heard.
**Update** 08/12/17 A foam mattress was selected and extremely discounted due to my awful experience with R&F. Two months later the foam mattress is not holding up. It feels like a plush foam now. My hip pain is still there. Very uncomfortable at night with both the bed failing to support me and also my hip waking me up at night. For the record, I've never had a left side hip issue. I hope there is no long term damage done to my hip. My advice stay away from this company. Their sales tactics is too aggressive, especially on a product that takes time to make a decision on. They're after your pockets with their aggressive sales tactics, and not after your well deserved beauty rest. I recommend going to an all mattress store next time.
After purchasing a mattress from the Raymour and Flanigan Store in Brick, NJ it was delivered with a fee to my residence. After sleeping on the mattress I began to get suspicious of the mattress I received. It did not seem to be the ultra firm mattress I purchased at the store. After researching my bill and the tag on the mattress I was able to confirm that the mattress was indeed not the one that I purchased! In fact it was a totally different brand.
I went to the store that I purchased the mattress at in Brick, NJ to discuss the problem. Come to find out they said that they don't even sell that brand mattress that I received upon delivery to my house. So they basically told me that I might have switched up the mattresses and tried to scam them! They were unwilling to give me any compensation and the accusation that I was trying to scam them is ridiculous! Lesson learned DO NOT BUY FROM RAYMOUR AND FLANIGAN!!!
I am an Interior Designer. I ordered this mattress for a rental house in Southampton. This is a mattress that will last. It is firm however the top is cushioned and soft-- without a pillow top! I find that pillow tops tend to sag or loose their plumpness ( usually on one side) pretty quickly so I never buy them. It is a high mattress so make sure you measure how high you want your bed to be. Go with the 5" box spring and if you need it lower go with a Bunkie board.
I need a firm support, but also have a 5" memory foam from my previous bed on top. The combination of the two works best for me. The pillow tops do not offer me enough firmness. I am very happy after 5 days.
The original box spring ordered was too big; the team from R&F returned the following day with a replacement.
We purchased this recently for a spare bedroom in our home. It's been used by guests of ours and the tell us how much they like it and how comfortable it is. We are very pleased with our purchase!
I sleep on this every night, and i'ts very comfortable. It was worth the money.
We need a bed for our guest room. Because my mother-in-law will be using it has to be comfortable but will not be an every day bed. This fits the description for us. We got it on sale for $500 and at that price it is a steal. Great for the price.
I love this mattress comfort height is excellent. Love the split box spring easy to get into my apartment. Would recommend to all my friends.
Great product for sleeping Dream comes easily You will like this when you use this for your real life You can happily sleeping in this bed
First night great sleep in 10 years! I didn’t know what I was missing.
Finally a bed I can enjoy to sleep in. Exact firmness I’ve always wanted and the height ratio is solid
Great mattress and great company to deal with. Delivery and set up and removal was so great and fast.
This mattress is amazing is like sleeping on clouds if there were such a thing.....
I am truly in love with our new mattress. Previously I owned a plush mattress but my husband and I experienced lower back discomfort and tightness in the morning. We decided it was time for a change and that we needed something more firm. We tried out 5 mattresses in the store within our price range and decided to purchase the Bellanest Imperial Firm King Mattress. We could not be happier, it is the perfect amount of firm for us and we no longer wake up with lower back pain. Also as first time owners of a king bed we are loving all the extra room. This mattress was a great find at a good price, and I absolutely reccomend it to anyone looking to switch from plush to firm for extra support.
Wooo This is the mattress that I need to sleep the whole day. Delivery and attention in Raymond and Flanigan is the best experience ever!!
So far I believe it may have being too firm for my wife as she is saying her back hurts. For me is ok no problems at all. After all for me is an ok matres.
Very nice. Bit more in height than old mattress. Having a disability,little harder getting on it. My shoulder & neck pain is 90% less now in the morning. For the on sale price&comfort, it's great!
Great mattress for my back pain. Very comfortable after a hard day of work. My wife neighbors came over and laid on it and tested it out. They will now head over to Raymour and Flanigan to purchase the same mattress. One of my neighbor bought the bedroom set this mattress was sitting on in the store now she's going to go back and get the mattress and box spring for the complete set.
Very comfortable and helped me sleep through the night!! No more back pain!!!
Just in love with these mattresses it is so comfortable I bought a queen size for myself and this full size for the guest room. So far it is doing wonders I just don't want to leave my bed in the mornings it was indeed a great buy.
This mattress is a little too firm for me. I would like to have had it a little softener. Thank you for your prompt service.
I just received my mattress. Right now I have mixed feelings about it. The majority of my life I have always slept on a super firm mattress. This is the first new mattress I'm sleeping on in over 10 years. I selected the Bellanest Firm but it does not feel firm. Not exactly soft but not really firm. It is nice, well made and I have no problem falling asleep. I'm getting use to it. I'm happy to have a well made new mattress. The Raymour and Flanigan sales person was very helpful. I would not describe this mattress as firm. A bit cushy.
I purchased a mattress at R&F. It was rock hard. Also, the base for the mattress was delivered with a faulty electrical control box. I contacted R&F to return the product, only to learn that R&F had a no return policy (which was not articulated to me by the salesperson). I was told that I had to wait 30 days to exchange the mattress. So, I had to either sleep on the rock hard mattress for a month and damage my lower back or sleep on a different bed. I told the manager of the store that the bed was not close to the one I tested in the store. He told be the demo beds in their showroom were beaten up, and they couldn't be relied on to know how soft or firm the actual beds would be that are delivered to the home. I described the factory defect with the base, and was told that usually customers are forces to have the base manufacturer (reverie) service their own products an R&F doesn't get involved, but he would make an exception and replace the defective base I received when I switched out the mattress. R&F sells the lowest model of the reverie base with their beds. These bases are very cheap, and R&F does not back them up. Instead, they refer customers to reverie for service. Reverie's customer service is extremely slow, and their reps do not have basic knowledge of the products. So, if you buy a bed from R&F you should plan on replacing the base in short order, or sign on to endless negotiations to get the base repaired. So, about 2 weeks after receiving my "new" bed from R&F I am stuck with a broken base and a concrete slab to sleep on. R&F refuses to address the problem until another 2 weeks passes (even though they delivered a defective base to my home and a bed that is not even close to the one I tested in their showroom). Classic bait and switch. In the meantime, I am sleeping on an old bed in a spare room and storing their defective products. I only have the manager's promise to replace the base and approve the switching out of the mattress in a week. If the next mattress turns out to be different than the beat up ones in their showroom, I am stuck. By far the worst experience I have ever had with a purchase of a bed. Also the most expensive bed I ever bought, close to $4000 and counting so far. Basically money and time wasted. My last rodeo with R&F.
