The naming has changed a bit for this mattress, but the story remains the same. This is a firm, supportive, cooling mattress at an affordable price.
Naturally, there’s a lot to learn with the Allswell Luxe Hybrid—more than a video will allow for—which is the reason we drafted the rest of this review. In the sections below you will find even more details about this mattress.
Like most bed-in-a-box mattress companies, Allswell offers free shipping, free returns, a risk free trial period, and an extended warranty. First, the mattress will arrive compressed in a medium-sized box. However, if you want, the company does offer an optional white glove delivery service for a fee. That means an actual person will arrive at your door and help you set up the mattress. Here’s what the typical unboxing will look like if you do not opt for white glove delivery.
They also offer free removal of your old mattress, but if you choose this option, you waive your right to return the Allswell mattress. If you do not choose this option, however, Allswell gives you a 100-night trial period to test out the mattress.
If you decide you don’t like the mattress after 21 nights, just give the company a call and they will send someone to your house or apartment to pick up the mattress free of charge and issue you a full refund. Allswell also backs their mattresses with a 10-year warranty. All in all, these policies are pretty standard for the bed-in-a-box industry.
Given Allswell is a Walmart brand, the mattresses are priced very affordably. You can usually snag a queen size Luxe Hybrid for under $600, which is a good price for the bed-in-a-box industry. However, last we checked sizing availability varies (i.e. the king size option is not always in stock). Here’s how pricing breaks down by size.
Lucky for you, Allswell also tends to run specials during major holidays. You can check AllswellHome.com for current offers and promotions.
Before we jump into this review, it’s important to note how your weight affects how you perceive a mattress. In short, the same mattress will feel different to various people. We try to frame our mattress reviews through the eyes (or body) of an average sized person (call it 150 to 250 lb). However, lighter sleepers (under 150 lb) will often find that mattresses feel firmer than most other people since they really don’t sink into the mattress at all.
Instead, they sort of just lay on top of the mattress. Heavier body types, on the other hand, will generally feel like most mattresses feel softer than other people due to the extra pressure they exert on a bed. People 250 lb or more sink into the mattress a lot. So with that in mind, let’s jump further into this Allswell mattress review.
First, it’s important to note that there are two different Allswell mattresses to choose from. They have a base model called The Allswell Mattress and then there’s the Luxe Hybrid model, which we’re focusing on in this post. The Luxe model is the more premium option.
For the foundation of the mattress, the Allswell Luxe Hybrid model uses a layer of 7.5″ 13 gauge individually wrapped coils. This gives the bed a strong base layer of support. Having coils as opposed to a firmer support foam also gives the bed some bi-directional support, meaning the coils are able to compress and contour, but also provide a little push-back.
On top of the coils is a 2.5″ layer of what the company calls its “Super Soft Foam.” On top of this is a 1″ layer of what the company calls its “Air Flow Foam.” These two layers sort of act as a transition between the supportive coils below and the plush topper above.
The Plush Topper is actually comprised of three different foams—there are two different layers of that Super Soft Foam again and then a 1″ layer of 2LB memory foam. All in all, the Allswell mattress totals 12″ thick.
Wrapping the entire mattress is a non-removable, quilted cover. It’s a pretty typical soft material that is somewhat cool to the touch. Allswell actually weaves special fabric into the cover to get this cool factor.
If you happen to spill something on the mattress or it gets dirty, it’s recommended you just spot clean it with a mild detergent and water. However, if you do want some added protection, Allswell offers a mattress pretector that is machine washable. Of course, having a cover might affect the coolness factor and breathability of the mattress, though.
Even though this mattress has multiple layers of foam near the top, it really doesn’t feel that soft. You get a slight memory foam feel thanks to the topper, but it’s very mild. Surprisingly, the memory foam is pretty firm. You always feel as if you’re laying on top of the mattress rather than sinking in and having the memory foam contour to your body.
The best analogy I can come up with is that it feels like laying on a bed of grass, meaning it’s somewhat soft near the surface, but you can definitely feel the dense earth below (or in the this case, the coils).
In terms of firmness, we’d put the Allswell Luxe Hybrid in the firm range on our firmness scale. However, keep in mind, this is for an average sized person. The firmness of the mattress will vary a little bit depending on your weight. A petite person will most likely find this mattresses even firmer while a heavier person might think it’s closer to the medium range.
The top layers of the Allswell mattress take an extra second to respond after releasing pressure. This isn’t a huge shock considering there’s a layer of memory foam at the top. Now, typically this could be a sign that it might be hard or require extra effort to switch sleeping positions throughout the night. That’s the case with a lot of memory foam beds. However, that’s not the case with the Allswell Luxe mattress for two reasons. We actually found it easy to switch between positions.
First, thanks to the firm nature of the mattress, you really don’t sink into the bed. Also, the top layer doesn’t really contour to your body and hug you. As such, you always feel like you’re on top of the mattress rather that in it. This makes it easy to switch positions. The second reason is that the coils in the bed provide some bounce. Again, having some bounce in a bed helps prevent against that stuck-in-the-mud feeling.
In short, no it’s not. As we’ve stated above, the bed is not all that soft and does not offer much pressure relief. When you’re on your side, the bed doesn’t really contour to your hips or shoulders.
In fact, we could easily see strict side sleepers start to experience some discomfort around their pressure points after an extended amount of time on their side. If you spend the majority of time on your side, you’re better off going with the base Allswell Hybrid model, which is a little softer.
Yes, the Allswell hybrid mattress is a good option for back and stomach sleepers. You always feel supported on this bed. There’s minimal sinkage around your hips and trunk, which means your spine will most likely always be properly aligned.
If you like a firmer feeling mattress and need a little extra support when you’re on your back or stomach, the Allswell Luxe model might be just right for you.
This is a tough one. Yes, it will definitely work for petite and medium size sleepers, but keep in mind it will feel quite firm. These types of sleepers won’t really sink in at all. As such, if you’re primarily a side sleeper, you’re not going to receive much pressure relief at all for your hips and shoulders.
Yes, this mattress is an solid choice for heavier individuals (250 lb or more). As I stated above, there’s minimal sinkage, which means heavier people won’t have to worry about their hips sinking down too far, leaving their lower back exposed without support.
In addition, this bed has coils, which is good for two reasons. First, in general, coils are more durable than foam over the long haul. That’s a good thing considering heavier people exert extra stress on a bed.
The second is that coils provide a little push-back, they don’t just compress. This will help protect against permanent body impressions forming in the mattress. Overall, if you’re a heavier person that spends the majority of time on their back, this mattress is a good choice.
Typically, we rate beds as either cool, neutral, or warm. Even though Allswell likes to play up its cooling material in the topper, we’re not convinced that’s why it sleeps cool. Rather, we think it will sleep cool more as a result of its construction and firmer feel.
First, coils, as opposed to a thick layer of dense support foam, helps promote airflow throughout the bed. Second, as we already eluded to, you sleep on top of this bed. You never really sink into this bed and the memory foam never really has a chance to contour to you body and hug you. Given these two factors, we think this mattress will sleep on the cooler side. That’s good news for all you sleepers that tend to heat up during the night.
Surprisingly, the Allswell Luxe Hybrid mattress limits motion very well. Typically beds that incorporate coils are not as good as all-foam mattresses in terms of deadening movement because of the bounce the coils provide. However, that’s not the case here.
The Allswell Luxe mattress easily passed our test. As you can see in the video above, we placed a half-full glass of water on end of the bed and then started rolling/walking around on the other end and we barely noticed any movement in the glass.
It was quite impressive. Overall, if you or your partner move around or get up a lot during the middle of the night, I don’t think you’ll have to worry about waking each other up.
This is an important topic for couples who share a smaller size bed (full or queen). A lot of times with couples, one person ends up hogging the middle of the bed, leaving the other person sort of stranded near the edge. Obviously, in this situation, it’s important the perimeter of the bed is still able to properly support the person and keep them from feeling like they are going to roll right off. The Allswell Luxe Hybrid mattress performs exceptionally well here.
There’s very little compression around the edges and we never got that roll-off sensation. This didn’t come as a shock, though. Typically, hybrid beds perform better than all-foam beds because the coils provide more bi-directional support. Overall, the Allswell hybrid is one of best beds we’ve tested in this department.
While the Allswell Luxe Hybrid is not our team’s favorite mattress out there, we can see it being the right bed for certain people. If you primarily sleep on your back or stomach and you like a firmer feeling bed, then the Allswell Luxe Hybrid mattress is a great option.
