Nature's Sleep has been in the mattress game for a while -- and their average prices are a bit more expensive than others on the list. However, they have an eco-friendly touch that ensures that what you are buying is good for you and your environment. Their big differentiator is gel foam, which provides an added layer of support to aching joints.
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 Natures Sleep in this match up!

Very comfortable topper. Made a big difference sleeping and a lot less tossing and turning. Only complaint is the odor. It still has not gone away after three weeks. I am very sensitive to odors and have a keen sense of smell. The topper has a foam smell.View More Reviews
Opened the mattress topper and found a large 4 inch cut in the mattress topper (on the inside and not related to me opening the bag). Followed the instructions to give it 24 hours to open up and placed it on my bed. Slightly larger than my bed but within reason. Placed the enclosed mattress cover on the new mattress topper and my original mattress. The cover is smaller than the topper and had to be yanked to fit. The seam shows that it really is too small for the topper.
Either way, this is a trial to see if we want a new memory foam type of mattress but I would not buy this brand if their quality is this poor. I also would have no clue how to return this as it was smashed so tight and wrapped so tight to fit back into the box it was delivered would be impossible.
It took a few days to get used to the memory foam pad, but once i did i really like it - the density is just right. We have a new superfirm king mattress and this was the perfect combination to put on top to make the bed feel just right. I've only had this a month and am hoping that it keeps it's shape for some time, but even if i have to buy a new one, it will be cheaper than buying a whole new mattress that had the extra memory foam built in on the top. I put a regular quilted cotton mattress pad on top of the memory foam so it doesn't 'sleep hot' and is just right. I let the memory foam air out for a week before i put it on my bed and there is no chemical smell at all.
I was nervous about the smell that this mattress pad has mixed reviews on but desperate to get a chance at better sleep, due to severe neck and shoulder pain so I unwrapped and used it the first night after only 15 hours of airing/ expanding.. The odor was noticeable and certainly I would catch big quaffs of bad odor when I moved... So I decided to test my theory that if I " walked on the mattress cover in baby steps" over the day, about 4 different times, I would effectively squeeze out the odor and get fresh air into the cover. Well this intervention made s huge difference that the odor was not noticeable by my second night... So if you have a few minutes during the day of airing, try my method to see if it helps speed the airing process.. BTW: my neck and shoulder pain dropped by 60% within the 2 nights I used this... I used to dread going to bed but now I can't wait! ( placed this as a topper on a quality futon mattress). After further research, I am also going to cover my new topper with a waterproof mattress pad as research shows people lose at least a Pint of water every night and some of it soaks into the foam... I learned a lot about foam toppers and all bed types from the blog called "Sleep like the dead". ( I am sleeping on the futon b/c our bed is 16 yrs old and the futon is more new and is a high quality futon mattress.. Waiting to buy a new foam bed once I have saved all my penny's up.)
Very comfortable, great sleep until....my dog who has always preferred to sleep in his own bed discovered how much better my bed is to sleep on. Now I have to fight with an 80 pound dog for a few inches of space.......
We have a Number bed that has been uncomfortable almost since we bought it. Both my husband and I would wake up in pain, so we decided to research memory foam toppers. We found this one on Amazon at a fairly reasonable price compared to the ones on the Natures Sleep own website. Unfortunately it has not helped my aches and pains although we will continue to use it. It did not have an overpowering smell (and I am very sensitive to scents) and it was fully fluffed up in about 12 hours. We were not able to wait a full 24 hours to sleep on it so I was relieved it was full prior to then. I think our mattress is the real issue, not the topper so I am giving it 4 stars.
I am a long time user of memory foam bed toppers. I ordered this item because the dimensions and density looked perfect. Now, after sleeping on it for a week it is indeed just what I wanted. It is long enough and wide enough to fit my king size bed perfectly.
Very little prep, took out of box unrolled and let rest for a couple hours and it was ready for mattress cover and sheets.Guests say it was very comfortable sleeping, didn't shift or bunch. Also told me it did not make them feel hot. Great way to rejuvenate a tired mattress.
Both me and my wife are very in pressed by Nature's sleep Memory Foam mattress cover. I was a bit hesitant at first, but once I got it I didn't know how i ever got along without it. It's all but completely restored the softness to my worn out old mattress. It has made restless nights a thing of the past. Both my wife and I have not slept so well I years. Highly recommended.
We received this mattress topper as a wedding gift from my bridesmaid/best friend It has made all the difference for us and our sleep. It did smell a little at first, but we let it air for 24 hours and then there was very little residual odor. It doesn't bother me at all, and I tend to be very sensitive to smells and chemicals. As far as comfort, I wish we had bought this mattress pad a year ago! (We have two cats, and our cats really seem to enjoy the mattress pad too!) Our mattress is okay, but old, and kind of springy. The first night we slept on the mattress pad, we actually overslept. I woke up feeling well rested, which didn't used happen nearly as often as I would like. I'm only 29, but I have significant joint pain, especially in my left hip. It's been bad enough in recent months that I couldn't lie on my left side for more than 30 seconds. Now, with the mattress pad, I can lie on my left side without hardly any pain at all. My biggest problem now is that I don't want to get out of bed in the morning! I fall asleep faster, don't wake up in the middle of the night hardly ever (which used to be a big problem for me) and sleep later than I used to. For anyone who has trouble with joint pain or pressure points from their mattress, I highly recommend giving this topper a try! Bonus: the sheets still fit, no problem!
All the reviews we read said that the chemical smell of this topper was gone within a day or so. I expected some smell because it as memory foam, but the smell on ours was horrible. We placed it in the guest bedroom and even with the door closed the smell permeated the hallway. We had to open the windows to help eliminate the smell in the hallway. It took almost a week before enough of the smell was gone where we could move it to our bed. We have slept on it for a month and it is already losing its firmness. We bought this particular topper as it was suppose to be 4.5 density, but it is not performing like it. We can still smell the topper when we uncover the bed. For the money, we are disappointed with this topper and it definitely was not worth the money that we spent.
Updating after owning 1 year: This useless. It is kinda comfortable for a couple months. Then after that, it actually is worse than just an old mattress. The foam is cheap, and becomes worn out after just a few months. Don't waste your money or be fooled by the positive reviews. Most of which were paid for by the company.
This item is ok. It made my very firm, older mattress more comfortable, however, the "memory" bounce back lasts a couple weeks at best. It then just becomes, foam. There is a reason high quality foam mattresses and toppers cost more, because they are superior products. As I said, this product is ok. Still a little over priced for what you get. If you really want a foam topper, and can't afford a better quality one or a foam mattress, then this is a decent, lesser expensive alternative. But don't expect top quality at discount prices. You get what you pay for, and this is just ok.
We bought a new extra firm, king size mattress due to back pain. After a couple of weeks I thought the bed was just a little too hard. It was great for my back but my shoulders weren't so happy while side sleeping. It costs $150 to return the mattress and then you only get credit to exchange for another, more expensive mattress. This was an option, but in my opinion, not the best one. I ran across a review of the Nature's Sleep mattress topper. I bought the density and thickness that seemed good for our situation, and our problems are solved!
Some things others have mentioned-
1. The smell- yes, memory foam can have an odor. My experience with this topper is that it was very minimal smell and aired out within the first 24 hours as we let it come back to size. (It comes rolled tightly and vacuumed packed)
2. The height- It is 2.5" thick, so yes, it adds height to your bed, but we bought a low profile boxspring, and all is well.
3. Discoloration- our last bed had a memory foam topper attached. We have seen that memory foam products due tend to have a yellow color from exposure to light. This topper did have a few yellow discolored spots (in stripes almost) from areas where plastic wrap and tape were thicker. It won't show once it is on the bed, and is a natural thing that seems to happen to memory foam.
4. The cover- LOVE IT! It fits great over the topper, mattress, and mattress pad and feels great too.
5. Heat- We have not noticed any different in feeling hot with the topper on the bed.
Overall, seems like a great product for a great price. Highly recommend it! We have slept very well in the couple weeks since adding it our bed.
We were very hopeful when we ordered this seeing all of the other high reviews. As soon as the package arrived, we had our doubts. The foam was completely different than what was pictured. Instead of the off white, it was a dark grey. After the seller assured me that it was the same, just a different color, we put it on the bed. Three weeks into trying it, we finally removed it at 2:30 this morning. It was so hot and so soft that it was causing sleepless and restless nights. Very disappointed.
We received this mattress and followed the instructions. The one-page manual gives this disclaimer: "Memory foam may have a minor odor when the mattress topper is opened as a result of the unique manufacturing process. This odor is harmless..." This is an understatement! This mattress WILL (not may) have a strong odor. And that odor is NOT harmless; my wife got headache and I got a scratchy throat from our first night sleeping on it. It just smells like other memory foam pads made with formaldehyde and other carcinogenic volatile organic compounds. The specifications of the mattress on Amazon says CertiPUR-US approved. After our experience, I do not believe it! Where is the proof that the mattress that I received is CertiPUR-US approved? Nothing in the manual that I received states that! There is no included certification in the product.
Best decision I have ever made, I have an older spring mattress and was starting to get lower back pain after tossing and turning at night....did a ton of research and found this topper to be a good one with the higher density rating 3.5lbs - 4.5lbs. Lots of the toppers you see on here do not even mention their density and if they are only 2lbs - 2.5lbs you will fall right through and be wasting your money. This topper does not get hot like the older ones and is comparable to the gel toppers that way. I can actually sleep through the night now and I find that I did not even realize I had been getting horrible interrupted sleep for 10 plus years! I feel so much better now in the mornings and find myself wanting to lay down on my bed for 30min everyday right after work to take the pressure off my spine and decompress. I even got a personal call from the owner of Natures Sleep because I had found the topper on sale for $50 less right after mine was delivered, he credited me back $50 on my VISA without any issues.
Amazing product, amazing owner/developer and I would buy this again and again, if you don't have $800-$1,500 to spend on a new mattress right away, get the topper like I did and you will be amazed and how well you can sleep! I'm saving up now for a Nature Sleep mattress and it will be my next purchase. Don't be afraid to just buy it, stop looking up more info online and getting more and more confused....I promise you will not be sorry you purchased this topper. I am a real person, 32 years old Father of 2, 6'3" 200lbs that loves his sleep!!! Good Luck!
Not that soft - bought a cheaper version from Costco several years ago and it was MUCH better. If you have your thermostat set at 70 or less then the pad is stiff and hard. Also, the cover that was shipped with the unit was yellow and stained. GROSS
I am pregnant and purchased this topper to help with extreme hip pain. The topper came in a medium-sized box and was wrapped very tightly in plastic. My husband opened it and was blown over by the fumes. We decided to let it air out, not knowing how much time it would need. I gave it a solid week (out of necessity). We draped it over a chair outside during the day and brought it in our garage at night. It made the entire 3-car garage stink. After a week I was desperate for some pain relief from my hips & decided to try it on the bed anyway. I could barely take the smell. I slept on it for 3 nights. It does help take the pressure off my hips but it made my low back (near tailbone) hurt instead. Also, it feels like I am sleeping in a ravine. No sleep. I tossed and turned all three nights (currently up at 4am writing this review). Now I am terrified that I have ruined my regular mattress with toxic fumes. I hope the smell goes away. I have requested a full refund from the company....we'll see if they take it back.
Update: The company owner contacted me to try to make things right. I highly respect this as it is rare to receive good customer service. I changed my 1 star (described as "I hate it" by Amazon's rating system) rating to 2 stars (described as "I don't like it). I could not give it three stars ("It's okay") because it was not okay for me. I'm not out to ruin anyone's reputation. It did help with my hip pain, but it also did cause back pain. However, my mattress might also be the culprit to the foam mattress topper sinking. So, in all fairness, I can't blame it all on the mattress topper. I have no idea how it performs on a different surface. I cannot, however, adjust my opinion on the smell. It was just too much for me. But, this does not seem to be a consistent complaint with other users of this product, so maybe I'm particularly sensitive.
Seemed OK but the cover had yellow stains that looked like tape. Another review mentions this. Item arrived quickly but with no instructions or packing slip. There was a small tear in the foam (not from opening I guarantee). Decided to return rather than risk it my $200+
I was thinking it was a mistake to order this mattress. It had a strong smell and seemed too hard. But when I got out of bed after sleeping on it the first night I was amazed.
My feet were not pins and needles when I stepped out of bed. My
back felt great. No pain or stiffness anywhere on my body. I actually look forward to getting in bed at night and feeling the support and comfort this topper added to my mattress.
I still get a bit of the chemical smell sometimes but nothing too strong. The only thing I would do differently would be to order the slightly lower density. Research of toppers states a 4.5 or higher is for heavier people. (250 lbs). I think the 3.5 to 4 density would be better because I am a petite flower. Hahaha
Just received my new CA King 2.5" Mattress topper. After unpacking and letting topper air out and expand for 24-hours, I just slept on it for the first time last night. My husband & I both have tons of back, neck, shoulder and hip problems. He has arthritis (also has 2 artificial hips) and I do not. This morning I woke up after suffering so bad for so long and feel 75% better in just one night. My hubby says while topper is very comfortable, it will take him a lot longer to notice the difference due to his arthritis. I'll write another (updated) review later on when hubby sleeps on it for another few weeks. For me, I'm elated to finally have slept much more sound with less tossing and turning. I was able to get right out of bed in the morning and not feel so crooked. Would highly recommend this exact product. The 4.5 lb density is just the right amount of support for tall, heavier people without having to feel like you're sinking it. I also suffer from severe hot flashes and what I love about this topper is it does NOT make me hot. Yeay!!!
We left it, unfolded, in the garage for 4 days to remove any smell from the material. We gutted our pillow top mattress and replaced the foam within with this piece. What a difference and at a price that was a fraction of the cost to replace the whole mattress. I would do this again in a heartbeat.
I did the same as another reviewer, bought a firm bed but it was a bit too firm. I got the topper, a twin, because my husband was OK with the firmness of the mattress --we have a king. It is working great, the pressure points I felt from the regular mattress on my shoulders and hips has been softened by the mattress and I can again sleep on my back.. It's perfect for what I need and it's nice to know it is certified to have a low VOC emissions, no formaldehyde or prohibited phthalates and other materials that are toxic.
We bought this after reading all of the positive reviews. I was so excited to put this on the bed and finally get a decent night's sleep. We are on the 4th night of "trying" to sleep on it, and we both have had the worst sleeping experience ever. I have pain in my back, shoulder and neck that didn't exist prior to using it. It's coming off the bed today and we are going mattress shopping. It seems like a quality product and it is obviously good for some, but we are sadly disappointed. Our mattress has slight indentations from where we slept before. I read a review from a customer that stated the topper filled in the indentations and left her bed flat. This is not true. In fact, it seems to amplify the indentations by falling into them. You can both see and feel this. In addition, the mattress cover that came with it has stains that appear to have come from the factory.
Did a bunch of research and took the gamble of buying this pad with the hope of extending the life of an old mattress and it has paid off. The original mattress had been regularly flipped and rotated so any depressions were not extremely deep but noticeable to the eye. I'll be adding this to the new mattress when the time comes.
I was very Leary at first. Been sleeping on it for over a month now. It's great. Like buying a whole new bed. The slightest smell will go away... Really! It is not beige either! Its a grey color...this bugged me at first, just because I wasn't expecting that. It's worth the money. So happy with it.
Very Nice memory foam topper. I have a nice memory foam bed but needed a little extra support and this hit the spot.
Also mine was a nice topper is a nice grey color unlike many ive seen on here commenting.
Absolutely love this product, it is like magic . I ended up flipping over my extremely soft mattress, so that the hard part was facing up and put on the mattress topper. and put on the mattress topper. For the first time, we woke up with no aches and pains and no stiff neck. It's comfortable, and the perfect softness/hardness! Don't buy new mattress, you don't need one! Just got this . It's amazing!
We've owned the high end memory foam mattress and the more affordable widely advertised memory foam mattress. We weren't satisfied with either. We used the Cool IQ toppers on a standard mattresses with much better results. It worked so well we did it for all our bedroom sets. Continued lower back pain with memory foam, air, and standard mattresses. Combine the topper with a standard mattress and the lower back pain is gone.
The Natures Sleep Cool IQ topper has transformed a new mattress that was too firm into a mattress that is very comfortable. Before the topper I would wake up with stiff muscles and bad back pain. Now I'm sleeping much better with no stiffness and have little or no pain when I wake up. (I've suffered with a bad back all my life.) I like this topper because I don't sink into a hole as happens with some memory foam mattresses. Also, there has been no pungent odor. The day the mattress arrived I put it on my bed and slept on it that night with no problem. And feeling hot during the night has also not been a problem at all. For your information, I'm a side sleeper. It's been a great purchase!
This is a must have item for all us deployed service members. This makes the thin mattress with all the springs poking out feel like your comfy bed back home. This mattress pad shipped and got to me within 2 weeks of ordering which is impressive considering I'm down in austere Kenya. Best 119.00 bucks I've spent this year.
I was a little surprised that the foam was a dark grey instead of white or cream like all the posted pictures show. It did have a smell to it for the first several days but that has now gone away. I am sleeping much more comfortable.
I am the kind of person who is always cold, so I did not see a reason to buy a mattress topper with the "cooling" feature in the description (I have hypothyroid disease, so my body temperature drops at night more than most people). The first night I slept on this thing, I felt like was about to spontaneously combust! The second night, I cranked down the ac. My toes were freezing and my back was on fire. The mattress topper itself is quite comfortable, and seems to be made well. The off-gassing, normally associated with memory foam, was not that bad, it was really quite mild (my mom had one that stank for weeks). However, I tossed and turned all night on this thing to try and get away from the unbelievable heat. I understand now that the point of the cooling toppers is not necessarily to make you cool, but to keep most of the heat from collecting. This one will be returned. If you are the kind of person who can never stay warm, who knows, this may be a good choice for you.
My purchased of this product was due to a review stating that they had purchased a few different toppers and this one was the best they had experienced. This was my first topper. My first night sleeping there were a couple of immediate noticeable positives, I did not need a pillow between my legs while on my side and I didn't need any extra pillows. It was the most comfortable I had felt in many years. I have had shoulder and neck pain for three years and after the first night of sleep it was immediately diminished. My husband has had hip pain for over a year and immediately noticed an improvement just lying down, after 3 nights his hip pain was gone. Obviously our mattress was the cause of pain. This is well worth the investment!
I purchased the topper in hopes of delaying having to buy a new mattress and so far so good. I've only slept on the topper 3 nights but have I've noticed a difference in my back pain--it's a lot better. If it helps for the next few months, it will be worth the investment.
VERY pleased with the item, as well as my entire experience with this company! The memory foam is amazing, and definitely beat my expectations! (First time bed topper purchase ever! Makes an old mattress from my grandparents [circa 1970's], itself--like a bedrock from flinstones--hard, feel like a brand new luxury pillowtop!) The company offered me very great customer service when I needed to contact them regarding my purchase; very satisfied with their product backing on quality and also their very timely response with customer inquiry. Thank you greatly!! (Saved me $1,300+ on a new King mattress!)
This is the second time I've purchased this topper, which should tell you something, since I don't buy mediocre twice. I did a lot of research before buying and found that it was more about the density than the thickness of the topper itself. Since I've had the other one for several months now, I can tell you that it is both comfortable and durable. My only complaint is about the scent. It lasted a little longer than I expected, but it did fade away completely after a few days. All in all, it's a great product.
We are enjoying the extra support , however I do not believe that "cool " can be achieved in any foam topper . Also a chocking smell when we opened the package , it disappeared after a couple of days.
I've had back problems for the last couple of years. I would wake up every morning with pain and it would take me an hour to get pain free again. I decided to try a foam mattress but it was a bit hard. Bought this topper and it has made all the difference. So far no back pain and it is soooo comfortable, not too hard/soft. I'm hoping this trend continues.
My husband and I are sleeping much better. The topper is extremely comfortable. It takes about an hour or two to fluff up after being folded in the packaging. All of the crease marks come out eventually.
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.
