Allswell Mattresses Overview
For those of you who aren’t aware, Allswell Home is actually owned by the retail giant Walmart. In addition to the Allswell website, you can also purchase Allswell mattresses on Walmart’s website.This is one advantage Allswell has over other bed-in-a-box companies, since some people would rather purchase a mattress from an already well-established brand. It’s also on-brand with Walmart’s other low-priced products, as this bed is one of the best innerspring mattresses you can get for the money. Below, we’ll explore the in’s and out’s of the Allswell Mattress and why we do or don’t think you should buy it.

Allswell Mattress Video Review
In today’s day and age, we realize a lot of folks would rather watch than read when learning about new products. If that’s you, here’s a quick review video about Allswell’s budget mattress, simply called “The Allswell Mattress.”
There is only so much detail we could cram into one video though. Keep reading to learn more about this budget-friendly mattress.
Construction and Design Of The Allswell Mattress
As the name implies, this is an innerspring mattress that consists of both layers of foam and coils. In total, the bed comes in at 10″ thick.
- Base layer – the bed uses a thin layer of dense poly foam — not for comfort, but to provide a foundation for the coils above to sit on
- Support layer – 6″ individually wrapped coils which serve as the primary support framework for the bed.
- Transition layer – Sitting on top of the coils is a 2″ layer of soft poly foam, meant to serve as a transition from the coils below
- Comfort layer – a quilted cover that includes 3/4″ of gel memory foam which gives the bed a more premium look and feel
How To Take Care Of The Mattress Cover
The bed has a quilted cover, which means it’s non-removable. As such, if you happen to spill something or the cover gets dirty somehow, you won’t be able to just unzip it and throw it in the wash. Instead, you’ll have to spot clean the cover with a mild detergent and some water.
In all honesty, that’s how you clean most bed-in-a-box covers (even the ones that are removable) so really it’s not a big deal at the end of the day.
If you’re concerned about your mattress getting dirty, you may want to look into purchasing the Allswell Mattress Cover to protect against stains. Alternatively, you can always shop among the hundreds of mattress protectors on Amazon.
Allswell Mattress Feel And Firmness
Although the mattress incorporates a layer of memory foam quilted into the cover, we wouldn’t say the mattress has an overwhelming memory foam feel. You do get a slight hint of memory foam but overall, we think the mattress has more of a soft, neutral-foam feel.
What we mean by the term “neutral” is that the top layers are soft and comfortable (like memory foam) but they don’t really conform or contour to your body’s shape like you would get with the top layers on a true memory foam bed. All in all, we think the bed feels most similar to the firm version of the Brooklyn Bedding Signature Mattress.
In terms of responsiveness, the top layers don’t immediately snap back to position after pressure is released off the bed but we wouldn’t categorize them as slow either. At the end of the day, you don’t get any sort of stuck-in-the-mud sensation with this bed. We found it very easy to switch between sleeping positions.
This is good news for active sleepers who move around a lot. Sometimes with beds that contain memory foam, these types of sleepers will feel like they’re kind of stuck-in-the-bed, which can make it more difficult to switch from their back to their stomach or vice versa. Luckily, that’s not the case with the Allswell Hybrid Mattress.
Moving on, we think the mattress comes in around a medium to medium-firm on our soft-to-firm scale. The bed is firmer than the average bed-in-a-box but we still think it offers a pretty nice balance between comfort and support.
Is The Allswell Mattress Good For Couples?
Lastly, we think the Allswell Hybrid mattress will work just fine for couples who sleep together (get your mind out of the gutter). The bed performs well in terms of limiting motion transfer and edge support. These are two important factors for couples to consider when shopping for a new mattress.
Next, the bed provides pretty decent edge support. It’s not the best edge support we’ve ever seen or tested but it’s good enough to get the job done.
This is an especially important subject for partners who share a smaller sized mattress like a full or queen. Good edge support means there is more useful space for both people to spread out without feeling like they’ll slip off the edge. Contrary to popular belief, not all couples like to cuddle throughout the night.
First, despite the coils which give the bed a little bounce, the top layers actually deaden movement pretty well. In our tests, we noticed little motion that was transferred from one side of the bed to the other.
As you see above, the water in the glass stays fairly stable. This is good for couples in which one partner has a case of the jimmy legs (i.e. kicks or moves around a lot). The better a bed is at isolating motion, the better night of sleep each partner will get. In simple terms, you won’t wake up every time your partner switches positions or gets up to fetch a glass of water.
Will The Allswell Hybrid Mattress Sleep Hot?
No, we don’t think you’ll heat up on this bed. In our experience, you sleep more temperature neutral. In other words, the bed won’t be the primary reason why you warm up, nor is it a cooling mattress. We feel this way for two reasons.
First, not to beat a dead horse, but the bed lands closer to a firm rating than a soft rating. You’ll sleep more on top of the bed rather than in it. This should help you from feeling like the top layers are wrapping or hugging your body (the less friction, the cooler you’ll sleep). Further, the bed contains only a thin layer of memory foam (generally known for retaining heat) and the coils in the bed allow for a decent amount of airflow.
Allswell Sleeper Type Analysis
Although the mattress lands on the firmer side of the spectrum, we do think the Allswell Hybrid is a somewhat viable option for primary side sleepers, though not if you’re looking for a truly soft mattress.
The Allswell Hybrid mattress won’t cradle your hips and shoulders like Purple beds, for example, but the top layers are still soft and accommodating nonetheless. Our testing team didn’t experience any discomfort or pain while laying on their side.
All things considered, we wouldn’t include this mattress on our list of the Best Mattresses For Side Sleepers, but it’s comfortable enough for side sleepers to get by with, especially if they’re a bit heavier in terms of weight.
Back And Stomach Sleepers
Yes, we think the Allswell Hybrid mattress is ideal for back and stomach sleepers. Unlike side sleepers, back and stomach sleepers generally prefer firmer mattresses that provide a good amount of support. In our experience, the Allswell Hybrid mattress does just that. Our testing team felt they received the necessary support under their lower back/trunk and that their hips stayed in proper alignment with the rest of their body.
If you’re a primary stomach or back sleeper the Allswell mattress should be a nice choice for you. It’s not the firmest mattress out there, but we see it as offering plenty of support and being in the sweet spot for many back/stomach sleepers.
Overall, we think the Allswell Hybrid mattress is a good choice for combo sleepers who rotate between positions. The bed provides just enough pressure relief to be accommodating for side sleepers and a good amount of support for back and stomach sleepers.
Plus, as we mentioned above, you won’t ever feel like you’re stuck in the bed, which allows combination sleepers to rotate between positions easily.
Petite And Average Sleepers
In addition to sleeping style, it’s important to understand how your body type, BMI and weight affect how you perceive a mattress to feel. The same mattress can feel quite different to various sized sleepers. In our reviews, we typically write through the perspective of an average sized sleeper. However, it is also important to address other body types.
The Allswell Hybrid mattress will work just fine for folks who weigh less than 150 pounds. Everything we said above holds true for these body types. However, keep in mind, the mattress will feel even firmer for lighter sleepers. Given this, lighter sleepers who spend a lot of time on their side may find the bed too firm.
The Allswell Hybrid mattress is one of the few bed-in-a-box mattresses under $500 that will work for people who weigh more than 250 pounds. We say that for two primary reasons. First, the bed is on the firmer side of the spectrum.
This means sleepers (even heavy ones) will lay more on top of the bed’s surface as opposed to sinking far down into the top layers. Sometimes with extra plush beds, heavy people will find that their hips sink too far down into the mattress and fall out of proper alignment with the rest of their body.
The Allswell Mattress Pricing
The Allswell Hybrid mattress is priced very affordably. It’s quite a bit cheaper than the average mattress in a box. Given the bed’s high-quality construction and the fact that it’s manufactured by a well-respected bedding company, we think this mattress is an excellent value. Here’s how pricing breaks down by size.
|King / Cal King||$465|
Is there an Allswell Mattress Coupon Or Discount Code?
We have some more good news for you. Allswell Home regularly offers coupon codes and promo codes to make their mattresses even more affordable. They don’t do it all the time but around major holidays we’ve seen them offer $50-$100 off. Check the green discount box on the right hand side of the screen to see if the company is currently offering a discount.
Comparing The Allswell Mattress Models
Before we get into a review of Allswell Luxe and Supreme, let’s discuss how they compare directly. There are four major differences when discussing the Base Model and Allswell Luxe vs Supreme:
Honest Review of All 3 Allswell Mattress Models
Price — Allswell has the good-better-best model, meaning each bed is slightly more expensive than the last.
Thickness — The base model is 10″ thick, while Allswell Luxe hybrid and Supreme are 12″ and 14″ thick, respectively.
Feel — The base model has a firm feel, Allswell Luxe hybrid has a soft foam feel, and Allswell Supreme has a memory foam feel.
Firmness — The base model is closer to a medium-firm, while Luxe is a true medium, and Supreme is in between.
Truthfully, if you are thinking about upgrading to Allswell Luxe or Supreme, the reason you’d do that is to get a softer mattress. As it relates to Allswell Luxe vs Supreme, you would upgrade to get more of a memory foam feel. Aside from that, we do think Allswell Luxe is a fantastic value for the money.
Allswell Mattress Reviews Verdict
|Weight||Petite (<150 lbs)||Medium (150-230 lbs)||Heavy (>230 lbs)|
All in all, we are big fans of this mattress. It’s a comfortable mattress that accommodates all body/sleeper types and performs well in almost every category. Add in the fact that it’s extremely affordable and you’re looking at one of the best value beds on the market. Don’t be surprised if it lands on a number of our Best Mattress lists.

How Allswell Compares To Other Brands
As an addendum to the review, I want to discuss how the Allswell Hybrid compares to a few other mattresses you can buy online. These won’t be full comparisons, but they’ll give you a decent idea of how Allswell stacks up.
Allswell Mattress Vs Casper Mattress
While Allswell mixes coils and foam, Casper is an all-foam bed with a neutral overall feel. Allswell is a bit firmer than Casper and has more of a memory foam feel. Laying on Casper is a bit like laying on a huge piece of softer foam. Between the two, we’d probably give the edge to Casper for petite side sleepers. That said, for heavier individuals, we’d prefer Allswell, so it really just comes down to what you want in a bed. Further, there’s almost no comparison on price. Allswell is far more affordable than Casper. That’s not to say that Casper isn’t a good value—it’s just that Allswell has Walmart pricing.
Allswell Mattress Vs Purple Mattress
We’re looking at two completely dissimilar beds now. Purple uses a proprietary top layer dubbed Hyper-Elastic Polymer, which isn’t a foam, but has some of the advantages of foam. As of early 2019, there are four Purple mattresses (original, 2, 3, and 4). All of them use this special top layer. Laying on a Purple mattress is like laying on an eight-foot-long Dr. Scholl’s insole. It’s responsive, soft yet firm, and really unique. Therefore, if you want something new, try Purple, but if you want something more traditional, look into Allswell.
Allswell Mattress Vs Layla Mattress
Allswell has a hint of memory foam, while Layla has a fluffy, soft memory foam feel. Layla also does not have coils, so it’s best for medium and petite folks, whereas Allswell can handle big and small dudes alike. One interesting feature that Layla has that Allswell does not is a double sided or flippable design with a soft side and a firm side. This allows consumers two options to get things right with the same mattress. We like the concept, but it’s not totally necessary if you know what you’re getting with a new mattress.
Allswell Mattress Vs GhostBed Luxe Mattress
Between the two, GhostBed Luxe has more of a true memory foam feel, though, we didn’t get an overwhelming “stuck” feeling with the bed. Further, GhostBed Luxe has a special cover that actively cools you down throughout the night. In other words, this is a proper cooling mattress, while Allswell is basically temperature-neutral. Both are on the firmer end and are quite supportive, so it really comes down to a preference for price and some of the other features of the beds.
Allswell Home sent us these beds for free in order to test them. However, we did not receive any monetary compensation from the company to publish this review. We retain full editorial control over the content we publish.
The Allswell, The Luxe Hybrid, and The Supreme are compatible with most slatted frames and foundations in addition to box springs.
As of the date of this post, Allswell mattresses are not available to test in retail stores. However, the company does offer a 100 night risk-free home trial period for you to try out the bed. We expect that sometime the future, Allswell will be available in Walmart stores, but we haven’t seen any pop up just yet.
The Allswell sits somewhere between a medium and medium-firm, perhaps a 6-7/10.
Yes. You have 100 nights to try out the bed and if you don’t like it you can return it for free.
The Allswell is under $500 after-discounts for the queen size mattress.
Yes, we give Allswell an overall positive rating. It may not be the right choice for some side sleepers and people who don’t like memory foam, but it’s great for back, stomach, and combo sleepers who are on a budget.
Allswell mattresses are made in Phoenix, AZ.
Allswell is owned by Walmart, who also exclusively distributes the mattress.
