The Allswell Mattress is a bed-in-box that is relatively new to the marketplace but has already made a name for itself due to its budget-friendly hybrid beds. Allswell is owned by Walmart and launched its mattresses in three styles, each at a different price point. While this review focuses on the Allswell, you can also compare it to their other hybrid beds, the Allswell Luxe and the Allswell Supreme.
The Allswell is comparatively lower priced than similar mattresses. Known for being on the firm side for a foam hybrid, the mattress combines the qualities of an innerspring mattress with memory foam for a comfortable and cooling sleep experience.
The mattress is easy to ship and assemble, and it doesn’t contain additional add-on or customization features. All in all, the Allswell mattress offers consumers a budget-friendly alternative to the average hybrid bed. We'll break down the Allswell's pricing, performance, company policies, and more to help you decide if the Allswell mattress is right for you.

Allswell Mattress Review: Our Verdict
The Allswell mattress is a great choice for sleepers who prefer a more firm bed. The individually-wrapped pocketed coils at the base of the mattress provide stability and durability, while the foam topper gives added support and comfort. Rather than a conforming, ‘hugging’ feel, the Allswell feels more like floating than sinking. The Allswell is also a great choice for couples and for those who tend to sleep hot.
While most sleepers who prefer a firm bed will appreciate the feel of the Allswell mattress, it’s particularly well suited to heavier sleepers who weigh over 200 pounds, and for back sleepers. Sleepers under 130 pounds may find that it’s not supportive enough, and side sleepers could feel some discomfort around pressure points.

How Does the Allswell Mattress Feel?
The Allswell hybrid mattress will feel slightly firm and supportive to most sleepers, and compared to an all-foam bed, it has a bounce to it that’s reminiscent of an innerspring mattress. Rather than being deeply contouring, the pocketed coils at the base of the mattress give the impression of ‘floating’ instead. This extends to the reinforced edge support, which prevents sagging and promotes ease of movement.
The Allswell is also known for sleeping relatively temperature neutral. The 2-inch foam top layer is infused with copper and graphite gel, designed to pull away and redirect heat. Similarly, the individually wrapped coil pockets in the base of the mattress promote air circulation, helping to keep you cool while you sleep.
What Is the Allswell Made Of?
The Allswell hybrid mattress combines both innerspring coils and memory foam to give sleepers support and comfort. The 10-inch high mattress consists of three primary layers: the support core, the comfort layer, and a cover.
The quilted top layer is a polyester and cotton blend, with an additional inch of cotton padding for added softness and comfort. The cover layer is both stretchy and breathable, and it should feel lightweight and cushioning as you sleep.
Beneath the cover is a 2-inch layer of memory foam that’s infused with copper-gel and graphite to cool and distribute heat as you sleep. Although this layer is memory foam, the overall feel is firm, and so this layer isn’t as conforming as other memory foam beds. Rather, it’s bouncy and again reinforces the feeling of sleeping on the bed, rather than sinking into the mattress as you may have experienced with other memory foam beds.
Finally, the mattress base is comprised of a layer of 7-inch pocketed coils. The edges are reinforced with thicker coils along the edges to prevent sinkage, as well as enforce the edges. The coils are individually wrapped, which increases airflow and provides additional cooling and motion isolation as you sleep. This foundational layer gives the mattress its overall stability and durability.
Does the Allswell Isolate Motion?
There are a few components of the Allswell that make it a good choice for motion isolation. First, the added edge support not only feels more supportive but leads to less sinkage and disruption to your partner when leaving the bed. The individually wrapped coils in the base of the mattress help to distribute weight more evenly and reduce motion transfer due to nighttime tossing and turning. The memory foam comfort layer and cotton top layer also help to absorb and slow movements between partners.
While overall the Allswell provides good motion isolation, it’s important to note that the bed has a somewhat bouncier feel than most mattresses. The innerspring component of this mattress that gives the bed its spring also allows for some motion transfer, which could be a problem for people who wake easily.
Does the Allswell Sleep Cool?
The Allswell scores high for temperature neutrality and is a good mattress choice for hot sleepers or those sharing a bed with a hot sleeper. The charcoal and copper gel in the memory foam layer help to absorb and transfer heat away from the body. Additionally, compared to many memory foam mattresses, the Allswell’s foam has less contouring or ‘hugging’ of the mattress to your body, and promotes more air circulation as a result.
Generally, innersprings sleep cooler than hybrid or foam mattresses and the Allswell is no exception. The pocketed coils provide additional airflow while you sleep.
Will It Sag Along the Edges?
Hybrid mattresses perform well in regards to edge support due to their innerspring core supports and foam top layers. The Allswell mattress is no exception and performs very well in this category.
The mattress is designed with reinforced edge support on two sides, and because the individually wrapped coils are reinforced along the perimeter, the edges are firmer and less likely to sag. This makes it easier to get out of bed without waking your partner, and also means the edges can support you while you sleep, rather than sag and make you feel like you’ll slip off the bed during the night.
Is It Good for Sex?
Due to the overall bouncy, springy feel of this mattress, it is a good mattress for sex. Unlike an all-foam mattress that constricts and clings to your movements, this bed produces less sinking, making for better ease of movement. The lightweight quilted cover is also stretchy and breathable, which slightly increases the responsiveness of the mattress. Finally, the supportive edges offer better comfort and trust in extending movements to the entire mattress.
What About Off-gassing?
Many Allswell users reported little to no off-gassing smells with their new mattress, and it scored well overall for off-gassing. Because the Allswell mattress is compressed and boxed, you may notice some initial smells when you first unwrap your mattress, especially in the first 24 hours. The initial smells should dissipate after that, and because the coils allow for airflow and circulation, off-gassing is not a major ongoing concern for this mattress. Unlike all-foam beds, the Allswell performs well for off-gassing, with fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs)emitted by its foam layer.
What Type of Sleeper Is the Allswell Mattress Best for?
While mattress selection is highly personalized, there are some key differences to consider depending on the type of sleeping you do most: back, side, stomach, or a combination of the three. Depending on your weight and sleep preferences, the Allswell should feel comfortable to most sleepers, but it’s perhaps most compatible with a back or combination sleeper.
- Side Sleepers: Of all sleepers, side sleepers may find the Allswell to be too firm, especially if you weigh under 130 pounds. Because you’re more likely to ‘float’ and rest on top of the mattress, side sleepers may need additional contouring for the right balance of support and alleviation of discomfort around pressure points.
- Combination Sleepers: Combination sleepers will generally appreciate the overall strong support and firmness of the Allswell mattress. The coil base will also help with ease of movement, and you won’t feel ‘stuck’ in one position all night.
- Back Sleepers: Most back sleepers prefer a slightly firm mattress, and the Allswell is a good choice for this. The coils provide ample support to the lower back, while the foam layer provides comfort without too much sinking.
If you like what the Allswell has to offer but are unsure if this mattress will be the right fit for you, you may want to consider the Allswell Luxe or Supreme, each of which has additional comfort layers for added softness. Side sleepers, for example, may prefer the Supreme, which has a plush euro top for added support.
How Does Body Weight Impact the Allswell Mattress's Performance?
The Allswell will feel most comfortable for sleepers over 130 pounds. Because this mattress tends to run firmer than other mattresses, heavier sleepers will feel supported on the top of the mattress, rather than sink into it, which is better for overall alignment and comfort. This is especially true of heavy back sleepers. The coil foundation also makes the mattress sturdier and more durable in the long run, offering better support for heavy sleepers.
Sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds, on the other hand, may find the Allswell too firm for comfort. In particular, side sleepers may find a softer and more contouring surface to be more comfortable.
By contrast, those between 130 and 200 pounds should also find good support with the Allswell.
Is the Allswell Mattress Good for Couples?
For the most part, the Allswell is a great choice for couples to consider. The reinforced edge support means couples can use more of the bed, and the coil support base gives comfort to each sleeper while reducing motion caused by tossing and turning or exiting your bed. The bed is good for sex, with above-standard ease of movement, and the natural bounce of the springs makes it an easy bed to move around on.
Finally, the bed is pretty temperature neutral, meaning that you won’t feel too hot sharing this bed with another person, even if you or your partner is a naturally hot sleeper. The coils and gel-infused foam pull heat away from your body and circulate air while you sleep.
When it comes to firmness, we all have different preferences, and some may find the Allswell too firm for comfort. Side sleepers, in particular, may require more comfort and a softer feel, especially lighter side sleepers who are under 130 pounds. Those with back or pressure point pain will also likely need more contouring than the Allswell offers.
What Do Customers Say About the Allswell Mattress?
|Allswellhome.com||4.5/5 (1,500+ reviews)
The majority of customer reviews for the Allswell mattress are positive and speak to comfort, firmness, and price. Many reviewers mention the firmness of the mattress, and that it provides good back support and comfort. Although the Allswell uses memory foam, many people commented that it doesn’t feel like foam. Rather, they found that the bed is firm and comfortable without the sinking feeling that many experience with memory foam.
Several reviewers comment on the ease of sharing the bed with a partner and cite its slight bounce but low transfer of motion.
The price is also a huge selling point for reviews, with many commenting on the “bang for your buck” of the Allswell. Reviewers seem to feel that the quality of the mattress is huge for the price tag, in some cases saying it’s a better purchase than beds that are much more expensive.
Finally, several reviewers mention the ease of use with shipping and unboxing, citing a great shipping experience, easy setup, and a lack of toxic, off-gassing smells upon arrival.
Many of the negative reviewers feel that the Allswell is either too firm or, ironically, too soft, and complain of discomfort and back aches after sleeping on it. Others received their Allswell damaged, citing stains, holes, and uneven edges on their new mattresses.
