Allswell Mattress Review
Allswell is a fairly new sleep company backed by Walmart. Aside from mattresses, Allswell also sells mattress toppers and bed and bath linens.
Allswell currently offers three mattresses: the Allswell, the Allswell Luxe, and the Allswell Supreme. All three are hybrid mattresses that come at an attractive price point, with the price increasing progressively based on the quality and thickness of the comfort layers.
In this Allswell mattress review, we’ll be focusing on the flagship Allswell mattress, the most basic model and the one that’s easiest on the wallet.
The 10-inch Allswell mattress combines memory foam and pocketed coils for a balanced feel that appeals to a wide range of sleepers. We’ve broken down the performance ratings, sleeper recommendations, and other practical information to help you decide if this could be the right mattress for you.

Allswell Mattress Review Breakdown
The Allswell is a no-frills hybrid mattress with a straightforward build, featuring charcoal and copper-infused memory foam over pocketed coils. Its comfort layer section is relatively thin compared to other hybrid mattresses.
This gives the mattress a firm surface that rates between a 7 and an 8 out of 10 on the firmness scale. While the memory foam allows for some sink, sleepers will mostly sleep “on” and not “in” the Allswell. This firmness level tends to work best for stomach and back sleepers who weigh at least 130 pounds.
Allswell also offers an optional down alternative mattress pad and a selection of memory foam mattress toppers to give the mattress a plusher feel. This is an option if you’re a side sleeper, if you weigh under 130 pounds, or even if you just prefer the feel of a softer mattress.
Those who are willing to expand their budget may wish to consider Allswell’s other mattress models. The Allswell Supreme has a plusher surface that is more suitable for side sleepers, while the Luxe offers more robust support for people over 200 pounds.

Allswell Prices and Sizing
The Allswell mattress is very inexpensive compared to other hybrid models. Most hybrid mattresses cost upwards of $1,000 in a queen size, while an Allswell queen mattress costs less than $500.
The low cost is partly due to the thin comfort layer section. Allswell’s mattress sizes are also one inch shorter in all sizes compared with the standard measurements. That being said, it’s still a great value for shoppers on a budget.
For sleepers who are willing to pay a little more for more advanced features, Allswell’s Luxe and Supreme mattresses may fit the bill. These are both hybrid models as well, but they offer enhanced edge support and thicker comfort layers with more sophisticated foams.

Allswell Mattress Performance
The Allswell isolates motion to an average extent for a hybrid mattress. Since the coils are individually wrapped, they won’t allow as much motion to travel across the bed as in an innerspring mattress.
Memory foam conforms locally and has a slow response to pressure that inhibits motion transfer. However, due to the relatively thin comfort layers, the Allswell won’t absorb as much motion as some hybrid mattresses.
If you share the bed with a partner, you should find that small movements won’t wake each other up. However, if one of you is a light sleeper, you may be better off with an all-foam mattress or a hybrid with thicker comfort layers.
The Allswell provides a moderate amount of pressure relief in the comfort layers. The quilted cover and memory foam conform somewhat to the sleeper’s body, providing a balanced feel that should reduce most pressure points in sleepers over 130 pounds.
Still, the Allswell is relatively firm, with just a few inches of memory foam before the coils. Due to the mattress’s firmer feel, lighter sleepers may experience pressure points when sleeping on their side.
Most sleepers should sleep cool on the Allswell mattress. Hybrids are generally known for their temperature neutrality, as heat is able to escape through the coil layer instead of getting trapped in the mattress. Moreover, the Allswell’s firmer surface means that sleepers will mostly sleep “on” and not “in” the mattress, resulting in less heat trapped around the body.
To further improve temperature neutrality, Allswell has infused the memory foam with charcoal and copper gel. These materials conduct heat away from the sleeper to avoid the traditional memory foam problem of sleeping hot.
Thanks to higher-gauge coils on each side of the bed, the Allswell boasts reliable edge support. This is important when getting in and out of bed, as well as when sleeping near the edge of the bed.
If you have a small bedroom, a bed with sturdy edges lets your bed double as a place to sit. For people who share a smaller mattress, strong edges allow each partner to use their full side of the bed without crowding toward the middle.
|Ease of Movement||4/5||
Since the Allswell has a fairly firm surface, the mattress allows for easy movement. The coils add further responsiveness that boosts motion. Combination sleepers should have no trouble switching sleeping positions.
The Allswell has a slightly bouncy surface that is great for sex. The strong edges allow full use of the bed, and the memory foam provides some traction without inhibiting movement.
You may hear some faint squeaks and creaks from the pocketed coils, but this is significantly quieter compared to the noise an innerspring mattress would make.
Some customers may notice some off-gassing odors when the mattress is first unboxed. This is perfectly normal, and the odors are generally not considered harmful. Since the mattress only has a few inches of foam and plenty of airflow through the coils, the smell shouldn’t stick around.
Off-gassing happens when foams come in contact with the air and release volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Allswell uses foams that are certified by CertiPUR-US, meaning they are low in VOCs and free of harmful substances like formaldehyde and ozone depleters.
Sleeping Style and Body Weight
Side sleepers tend to experience pressure build-up in the hips and shoulders, so they will be most comfortable on a mattress that cushions these areas while allowing for proper spinal alignment.
The Allswell incorporates memory foam and a quilted cover to provide some initial contouring. This can help alleviate pressure points in sleepers over 130 pounds. However, the bed’s firm feel and thin comfort layers will cause some pressure points in side sleepers under 130 pounds.
Back sleeping naturally aligns the spine. The best mattress for back sleepers will maintain this position, offering a balance of pressure relief and spinal support to keep the hips from sinking in too far.
The Allswell provides sufficient cushioning and spinal support for back sleepers under 200 pounds. The mattress also rates particularly well with back sleepers who weigh more than 200 pounds. These sleepers exert more pressure on the mattress, but the pocketed coils are more than up to the task, providing targeted support to the spine without causing pressure points.
Firm mattresses are generally best suited to stomach sleepers, who also need to prevent excessive sinkage in the hips. The Allswell’s firm surface should be comfortable for stomach sleepers of all body types.
While it’s not difficult for people under 200 pounds to find a sufficiently supportive mattress, stomach sleepers who weigh more than 200 pounds often find a lack of support in all-foam mattresses. The Allswell is a great solution for heavier stomach sleepers who don’t like the higher price tag of most hybrid mattresses.

Allswell Customer Reviews
4.5/5 (1,500+ reviews)
Unsurprisingly, the overwhelming sentiment on the Allswell website was that this mattress offers great bang for your buck.
The vast majority of people found the mattress to be firm yet cushioning, with a balance of bounce and some sink from the memory foam. Within the group that found that mattress too firm, more than one person ended up using a foam topper to make the surface more plush, with positive results.
Some people noted that the mattress started to sag after a few months, causing back pain. A few people also mentioned that the edges compressed somewhat under pressure. While most customers found that the mattress did not retain heat, a few people said they woke up hot and sweaty.
The inner box has wheels, which customers appreciated because it made it easier to move it to the room they wanted. Most people didn’t notice any off-gassing smell.
It’s worth noting that there is the occasional incentivized review on Allswell’s website. Although there are plenty of real five-star reviews, some of the positive reviews come from people who received free products.
