Allswell vs Casper Mattress

We've posted reviews about both Allswell and Casper, but which mattress is right for you?

Casper is one of most well-known mattress in a box companies out there. Chances are you've seen or heard one of their ads online, or on your favorite podcast or radio station. Allswell, on the other hand, is fairly new to the space, but the brand itself is owned by a familiar face, Walmart.

Allswell is a durable and affordable hybrid mattress that will check a lot of boxes for a lot of consumers.

Overview (Shipping, Returns, and Other Company Policies)

Like most bed in a box companies, both Casper and Allswell offer free shipping and free returns. The mattresses will arrive at your door compressed in a box. One thing to note, though, Allswell does offer optional free white glove delivery and removal of your old mattress. However, if you do choose to have Allswell haul away your old mattress, you forfeit your right to return the Allswell mattress, so keep that in mind.

Once you unroll the mattress and let it inflate, both companies give you 100 nights to test it out. If you decide you don’t like the mattress at any point during the trial period, just give the company a call and they will schedule someone to come pick it up from your home free of charge and issue you a full refund.

Both companies also back their mattresses with a 10-year warranty. All this stuff (free shipping, free returns, 100-night trial, and 10-year warranty) is pretty standard for the industry.

Casper Mattress

BEST FOR:

  • All kinds of sleepers (stomach, back, or side)
  • People that like a soft neutral-foam feel
  • Folks who toss and turn a lot (limits motion transfer well)
  • Couples who share a smaller sized bed (solid edge support)
  • Sleepers who want a nice balance between support and pressure relief

This is Casper’s flagship mattress. They also offer the Casper Essential, which is their budget-level bed, the Casper Wave, which is their higher-end bed, and as of early 2019 they have tow new hybrid mattresses called Casper Hybrid and Wave Hybrid.

The original Casper  is an all-foam mattress consisting of four layers. It starts with a 5″ layer of dense support foam on the bottom. On top of that is a layer of what Casper calls its Zoned Support Foam.

Here’s an up close look at the Zoned Support Framework

This layer was actually introduced in 2018 and is split into thirds. The top and bottom thirds are a little softer to provide more pressure relief for your shoulders, head, and legs, while the middle third is slightly firmer to provide more support for your hips and trunk. On top of the Zoned Support Foam is a layer of memory foam and then a layer of open-cell foam.

All in all, the Casper mattress is extremely comfortable and performs well in almost all categories.

How Casper Is Better Than Allswell:

Softer  This is somewhat subjective, but I think most people would agree that the Original Casper is softer than the Allswell. We rate Casper at about a medium on our firmness scale. It’s basically our baseline with which we measure other mattresses. Allswell on the other hand is somewhere closer to a medium-firm, so you won’t get as much pressure relief as you will with Casper.

Better For Side Sleepers  As I previously mentioned, the Casper mattress is much softer and offers more pressure relief than the Allswell mattress, though, we don’t think Allswell is a bad option for larger side sleepers. As such, side sleepers will find that Casper cradles pressure points (hips, shoulders) much better than the Allswell.

Limiting Motion Transfer  Generally, all-foam beds perform slightly better than hybrid beds when it comes to limiting motion transfer. And that’s the case here. Both are actually pretty good at deadening movement, but if we absolutely had to choose a winner, it would be Casper. It passed our motion transfer test with flying colors. Bottom line if you or your partner move around a lot, we don’t think you’ll disturb each other’s sleep.

Removable Cover  This is sort of a small point, but the cover on the Allswell is non-removable. This means if you do happen to spill something on the bed, it will be easier to clean  Casper’s cover since it is removable. However, it is still not recommended that you machine wash the Casper cover, which is why we say it’s a minor point.

Overall, we really like the original Casper mattress. It checks a ton of boxes it’s ultra comfortable, decently affordable, accommodates all sleeper types, and performs well for couples.

Allswell Mattress

BEST FOR:

  • All sleeping styles, though, it is firmer than Casper
  • Heavier individuals or people that need extra support
  • If you want a bed that costs under $500 (for a queen size)
  • People that want a coil mattress (the original Casper is an all-foam bed)

It’s important to note that there are actually two different Allswell models:

  1. An entry level mattress called “The Allswell Hybrid.”
  2. Firm, cooling hybrid mattress called “Allswell Luxe Hybrid.”

We will focus on the entry level hybrid up top and the cooling hybrid below. Most people will end up getting the entry-level bed because, quite frankly, it has very few downsides.

More About The Flagship Allswell Hybrid

On many of our best lists—especially those that mention price—we rave about the Allswell mattress. It’s made in the USA, has 6″ coils, and is offered at a price so low it’s almost shocking. It’s therefore hard to argue that Allswell is not one of the best budget/cheap mattresses out there. Here’s a look at the mattress.

At under $500, Allswell is a seriously good bed

What you obviously can’t see from the image is that it has 6″ pocketed coils and several comfort layers, including memory foam. The overall feel of the bed is neutral, however, since it’s about a medium to medium-firm on our firmness scale.

You can feel the memory foam somewhat, but given its firmness profile you’ll stay more on top of the bed, as compared to Casper. It definitely feels supportive for being a budget-friendly mattress.

Why Allswell Is Better:

More Affordable — For a queen size Casper, the price is close to $1,000, but you’re looking at about half of that for Allswell. I’ll let that sink in for a second—Allswell is, in many cases, less than half the price of Casper.

Coils — While Casper has a hybrid option (that costs more), Allswell by default has coils, which make the bed more ideal for heavier people and those that prefer the bounce provided by coils.

Firmer Feel — From the get-go, Allswell is firmer than Casper—and if you’re a back or stomach sleeper, there’s a chance that you’ll prefer that firmer feel.

Moving Over To The Allswell Luxe Hybrid

For the remainder of this post, we’re going to focus on the Luxe Hybrid model, which is firmer than the base model and has a cooling cover. It still has individually wrapped coils and multiple layers of foam. Most notably, it has a thick plush topper that is comprised of three different types of foam.

In total, the Allswell Luxe Hybrid mattress comes in at 12″ thick. This mattress is on the firmer side of the spectrum. In fact, we rate it as a strict firm on our scale. We wouldn’t recommend this mattress for everyone, but it is a nice option for certain types of sleepers.

Comparing The Luxe Hybrid To Casper:

More Support  The Allswell hybrid is a very supportive bed. There’s minimal sinkage and you always feel as if you’re on top of the bed. You never feel as if you’re sinking into the mattress, which means there’s no stuck-in-the-mud feeling. This helps keep your spine properly aligned at all times.

Sleeps Cooler  Although Allswell likes to play up the special cooling materials in their cover, we think this bed sleeps on the cool side for other reasons, as well. First, it incorporates coils, which promotes more airflow through the bed as compared to just a thick layer of dense support foam. The second reason is due to its firmness level. You’re going to sleep more on top of this bed rather than sinking into it. This means the mattress won’t really hug you and create that heating friction.

Heavy Body Types  Given the previous point, we think the Allswell Luxe Hybrid mattress is a better choice for heavier individuals (250 lb or more) than the original Casper mattress. The mattress incorporates coils, which tend to be more durable than foam over the long haul. This is especially important for heavy people given the extra pressure they place on a bed. The coils also provide a good amount of bi-directional support, meaning the coils are able to compress (like foam), but provide a little push-back, too.

However, keep in mind Casper does offer two hybrid models if you’re set on getting a Casper. It’s much thicker and durable than the original Casper, and we think it’d be a great choice for someone looking for a hybrid mattress.

Edge Support  The coils and firmer foams used in this bed also result in better edge support than Casper. If you share a bed with a person that hogs the middle, the Allswell mattress provides a ton of support around the perimeter of the mattress. There’s also no roll-off feeling as you get towards the edge, which is nice.

Price  This is pretty straight forward. Allswell is priced more affordably than Casper by a pretty good margin. Good news, though, both companies offer coupon codes you can use to make their mattresses even cheaper. Check the table above or the discount box on the right hand side of the screen to see what promotions both companies are currently offering.

Overall, the Allswell Luxe Hybrid mattress isn’t the most premium mattress we’ve ever tested, but it’s built like a tank. We can see it being the perfect mattress for a select group of people. If you like/need a firmer mattress and prefer more of an innerspring type feel, the Allswell Hybrid is an excellent choice.
