Jamison has been in the mattress business since 1883. They have changed with the times and now offer two lines of mattresses - one innerspring and another memory foam. They often co-brand with other companies or hotels, like Mariott to sell the hotel feel to consumers. Overall, their mattresses are mid-priced, but there are some complaints about the mattress durability over the life of the bed.
Raymour and Flanigan sell a variety of mattresses including many name brands, but they also sell mattresses under their own label - Bellanest, which is a line of extremely affordable mattresses. Their mattresses come in either memory foam or hybrid varieties, and most find them comfortable though there are some that claim durability issues.
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Jamison in this match up!

Getting a firm understanding of sleeper reviews can be a relief. Sadly, customers don't always feel comfortable with these mattresses. Some have comfortable experiences, but others have issues. If you are considering buying, there are more details about mattress specifics below.
Support isn't equal to firmness. Deep support means the mattress aligns the back and spine. Sadly, some customers don't find these mattresses to have great support. Most customers are comfortable with the support right after purchase, but some folks didn't feel like they were adequately supported over time.
For those that sit on the edge of their mattress in the morning, edge support is very important. At first, these mattresses do a good job with edge support, but some had complaints that edge support wasn't all it could be long term.
These mattresses may not give the lasting comfort that you are striving to find. Some reviewers have had complaints regarding durability and comfort over a short horizon. If you are searching for a mattress with lasting support and are of a heavier build, these mattresses may feel good initially, but make sure to do some more research before buying.

I had visited a store and was looking at buying the Resort Hotel Collection The Pinnacle or the English Garden Collection Wisteria, they both seemed very comfortable but so does a lot of mattress at first. I have had an Original Mattress factory 100% latex bed and a Kingsdown bed and they both were terrible, had body impressions and cause back pain.View More Reviews
Purchased a queen size Jamison Mattress and was told the mattress was warranted twenty years. Mattress began to fail after four years. Contacted the merchant and was assured the mattress was under warranty and a District Rep would be notified. Took four calls to report on Rep had contacted me. Later received a packet requesting pictures with a certain type camera, a string with two washers to attach to the string; lay it across the bed and take pictures. Ridiculous request and Jamison had to be aware of the inane request to validate my complaint. This company falsely warranties their product and deliberately requires an unreasonable request from the consumer. Will never purchase again. This company should be ashamed for failing to deliver any satisfaction on such an expensive investment.
In November 2013, I purchased a full size mattress set from E. F. Brannon in Hixson, TN for $1,000.00. My spine doctor suggested I purchase a firm coil spring mattress for my spine which this Jamison is. I have had bad experience with this mattress. I bought one that you can both turn and/or flip which I have been doing every 6 weeks since I purchased it but all this has not helped. I sleep alone in it and weigh 168. It wasn't long after I purchased that it began to dip where I slept. Recently I can feel a spring with my hip.
After one month the mattress began to develop indentations of our bodies, then it started squeaking. Now in the second month the squeaking is on every movement and the indentations are bothersome.
I read the other reviews and found they were customer service issues and not mfg. problems. I sold mattresses for four years so consider myself knowledgeable. I am very pleased with my Jamison bed. I got it after I had problems with another brand. Sleep King, the store I purchased from, allowed me to use my full warranty credit toward any bed I liked. The salesperson told me upfront that ALL manufacturers will void the warranty if the mattress is stained and gave me a mattress protector pad at no charge. I weigh 182 and she 140. Very comfortable bed!! No problems like I had with other major brand.
I wanted an american made mattress. I found Jamison. Loved the mattress the 1st month we had it. Then it started to get indentions of where we sleep. Within 3 months, the indentions were horrible. You can not flip this mattress, just turn it around. So that really did not help! We called within a year for someone to come look at it. Well I have a pillow top and the way they measure indentions is with a string with weights on each end. If the indentions does not measure an inch then nothing is wrong. But they fail to see that the pillow top gets a little air in it each time you get up. So the measurement is not accurate. I paid $1500.00, it is only 2 years old and will have to replace very soon. This mattress is horrible. My box spring is also broken in one of the corners. If I would get them to come look at the bed again it would cost me $65.00. There is no point because of the pillow top.
TLC Talalay Latex Collection (Cloudwing) bed and box springs - It has not been a year since I bought the bed and box spring. I purchased the bed from Story and Lee, Furniture and Appliance, Leoma, TN. I was annoyed with a strange noise coming from the box spring that wakes me up all the time. I was cleaning and my daughter and I lifted the mattress and box spring and there are no springs in the box. The top of the box is cardboard, and the 1x2 wood slats inside this box are split, crooked, and the wood slats are not square from top to bottom. The slats are crooked and were not cut evenly. The paper fabric covering the bottom was torn and not all fastened with staples. I have never seen such cheap workmanship. I paid over $1,500 for the bed. I telephoned Story and Lee and was told the new beds are coming in with springs in the box spring instead of wood slats and a cardboard top. I can't believe that Jamison is guilty of such cheap workmanship. I will have to pay $250.00 for the new box spring. I wonder if these beds are made in the USA or abroad. The quality in the products we purchase now are so cheap and poorly made!
I purchased a Jamison queen mattress and foundation set less than a year ago. Every time I move or my husband turns over, the whole bed shakes! I cannot sleep on this bed! Their advertisement says it wont do this. I am so disappointed in this bed!! will never buy another Jamison bed!
My overall experience would be one big fat '0'. I purchased a Jamison mattress and it sagged in less than a month. It was replaced by the factory only after I had to go through a lot of problems of taking pictures of it in with strings hanging across it plus the slats. At 83, I had to move this thing by myself. They replaced it and now it is sagging again. I purchased a new mattress because my old one was hurting my hip. Now I am having the same problem. This is the worse experience I have had in my lifetime of purchasing a mattress.
We spent $2300 for a mattress that ended up with dips in 3 years. Supposedly it has a 10 year warranty. Reviews indicate Jamison is a good mattress. I would wake up every morning with a back ache and neck ache. My shoulders and hips would hurt. Sleeping on concrete would have more comfortable. So I bought a mattress topper from 'My Pillow'. The aches and pains are gone now. My husband didn't have many complaints except for the dip in the mattress. The mattress itself is so heavy, you cannot turn it over or move it around unless you have 5 men with strong backs to move it. I would not recommend this mattress to anyone.
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.
