Allswell Mattress Topper Review
If you aren’t familiar with the brand Allswell, you’re sure to know their parent company Walmart. Allswell is the retail giant’s answer to the online mattress industry, and competes with bed in a box brands such as Casper, Nectar, and Brooklyn Bedding. Like Walmart, the brand is known for their low prices as they offer well-made products with very affordable price tags. This post is an Allswell mattress topper review where we discuss their three different toppers; the budget-tier, middle-tier, and top-tier models.

Unboxing Your Allswell Mattress Topper
Unpacking an Allswell memory foam mattress topper is easy. Follow these five steps:
- Step 1: Remove your Allswell mattress topper from its box
- Step 2: Carefully take off the plastic wrap without cutting the topper itself
- Step 3: Unroll the topper on a flat surface
- Step 4: Wait 48 hours to sleep on it so it has time to fully transition back to its intended form
- Step 5: Place it on top of your bed. If you purchase the second-tier model you’ll want to place it so the copper color side is facing up
Allswell Entry Level Topper — Graphite Infused
The first topper offered by Allswell is 3” thick, and constructed out of “Moisture Wicking CoolFlow Foam.” In a nutshell, it’s basically open-cell memory foam and it’s the same foam used throughout all three models. This topper is also infused with graphite, which is meant to absorb your body heat as you sleep.
This Allswell mattress topper model is the most affordable out of the three options. It starts at about $80 for a twin size mattress topper, and goes up to $135 for a king size topper. We are a little surprised about their prices because Allswell has a reputation for offering quality mattresses for very reasonable prices. This isn’t to say this mattress topper isn’t affordable, we just expected all three of them to be a little less
It has a distinct memory foam feel, but it’s softer and less responsive than the other two. We think you get a prominent deep viscous feeling when you lay on this, even more so than the second and first tier models. We put a coffee cup on the topper to test it out, and when we removed it, we could see the cup’s ring before it slowly returned back to normal. So you can only imagine what it’d do with your arms or your trunk.
On our scale from soft to firm, we rated this one in between medium and medium-firm. If you’re on the fence about memory foam, we’d probably suggest you look into the other models because we think this one is more ideal for folks who absolutely love the feeling of memory foam.
Allswell Second Tier Topper — Copper Gel Infused
The second Allswell mattress topper model offered by the brand is 4” thick and infused with Copper Gel. The Copper gel works in a similar way that graphite does, in that it draws your excess body heat away from you. Another benefit of using copper gel in a mattress or mattress topper is that it’s antimicrobial, and it stops the growth of microorganisms you don’t want anywhere near your sleeping space.
This mattress topper offers a little more support than the entry level one because it has an additional layer of dense polyurethane (neutral) foam underneath the comfy memory foam layer. As we mentioned earlier the entire mattress topper is 4” thick, and the polyurethane slab takes up 2” of it.
Due to that second layer of material and copper gel, the second tier mattress topper model is a little more expensive than the first. The retail price starts just under $100 for a twin size mattress topper, and goes up to $155 for the king size.
This Allswell memory foam mattress topper also has a deep viscous memory foam feel, but we think it’s slightly less prominent than the first. The memory foam feel is more neutralized due to the poly foam layer underneath.
You can also flip it over for a more neutral foam feel if you don’t love the memory foam. This isn’t advertised on their website or anything, we’re just putting the option out there because we think it works.
On our scale from soft to firm, we rated the second tier mattress topper a medium-firm.
Allswell Top Tier Topper — Graphite & Copper Infused
The construction of the third model is similar to the second in that is has two layers of material; one 2” memory foam layer and one 2” dense poly foam layer. The memory foam slab provides the comfort while the poly foam layer provides support.
It uses a combination of graphite and copper gel to make the mattress cooler than other memory foam materials, but it’s also constructed with a cooling strip in the center of the mattress topper.
In our Allswell mattress topper review, this one is the most expensive one out of the three. They don’t make twin or full sizes, but the queen size retails for about $160 and the king size is priced right under $180.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, this Allswell mattress topper has a memory foam feel. We’d say it feels similar to the second tier mattress with a medium-firm rating. The biggest change with this mattress topper is the cooling feel in the center. Don’t take it lightly when we say this one is cool-to-the-touch. We could feel it actively cooling us when we laid down on it, so this is definitely a good option for hot sleepers.
On a scale from soft to firm, we gave this one the same rating as the second one which is a medium-firm.
Mattress Topper Cleaning and Care
Allswell recommends you use deep fitted sheets when you use these toppers since they add a little extra thickness to your mattress. If you already have a thick bed, you’re definitely going to want to spring for the deep fitted sheets. You can check out popular deep pocket sheets on Amazon here.
If you spill or make a mess on the mattress topper, you can spot clean with a mild detergent and warm water.
Allswell Mattress Topper Review Verdict
So after all is said and done, what do we really think about the Allswell mattress toppers? If you’re a huge fan of memory foam, we suggest you save money and go with the entry level model. Unless you’re an individual over 250 lbs, then you might want to look into the toppers with more support.
If you aren’t the biggest fan of memory foam but think these toppers sound nice and comfortable, try out the second tier model. It’s slightly more expensive than we thought it’d be, but if the price isn’t a factor, you should go for it.
We think the top tier model is a little expensive, but people who tend to heat up or even sweat during the night might want to spend the extra money on it. If you’re not a hot sleeper though, we’d look into the less expensive models.
