Allswell vs Casper Mattress Review

See which bed in a box is right for you between Casper vs Allswell Luxe Hybrid.

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.

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

NOT BEST FOR:

  • Heavier sleepers (250+ lb)
  • Hot sleepers
  • Folks who prefer a little bounce in their bed (no coils)
  • Individuals that like a dense memory foam feel

This is Casper’s flagship mattress. They also offer the Casper Essential, which is their budget-level bed, as well as the Casper Wave, which is their higher-end bed. 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.

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 and More Comfortable  This is somewhat subjective, but I think most people would agree that the Original Casper is more comfortable than the Allswell Luxe Hybrid. The Casper mattress is one of those beds that you actually look forward to laying down on. It’s much softer, much more forgiving, and offers a good amount of pressure relief. The Casper has a very nice soft foam feel. The Allswell hybrid has more of a traditional innerspring feel. But hey, some people may actually prefer that to a soft foam feel. To each his own.

Better For Side Sleepers  As I previously mentioned, the Casper mattress is much softer and offers more pressure relief than the Allswell Luxe Hybrid. As such, side sleepers will find that Casper cradles pressure points (hips, shoulders) much better than the Allswell.

Better For Combo Sleepers  This is somewhat implied since we’ve already stated that the Casper Original is better than the Allswell Hybrid for side sleepers. If you tend to switch between sleeping positions quite a bit, you’ll find that Casper is accommodating in all positions.

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 Luxe Hybrid Mattress

BEST FOR:

  • Back and stomach sleepers
  • Heavier individuals or people that need extra support
  • Hot sleepers
  • Folks that like a firm feeling mattress
  • Couples that spread out (great edge support)

NOT BEST FOR:

  • Side sleepers
  • Lighter individuals (too firm)
  • People that prefer a soft foam feel

It’s important to note that there are actually two different Allswell models. There’s an entry level hybrid and a more premium hybrid model called the “Luxe”.

In this post, we’re primarily going to focus on the Luxe Hybrid model, which incorporates 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.

How The Allswell Hybrid Is Better Than 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.

Ideal For 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). It’s much firmer and provides more support than Casper. Further, 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. This gives the bed a little bounce, which heavier people might find useful for switching sleeping positions or getting on and off the bed.

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.
