Allswell Luxe Construction
- Allswell has a woven fabric designed to help with cooling. It is also quilted with memory foam.
- The first layer is 1.5″ of a slow-responding memory foam that provides a quicksand-like feel.
- The next is a 1″ layer comprised of a firm, springy AirFoam material to prevent sleepers from getting stuck in the mattress.
- A 3″ transition layer of SuperSoft foam comes before the base.
- A 5.5″ layer of firm foam forms provides support from the bottom up.
- Allswell uses CertiPUR-US certified foams, which means its materials are considered more eco-friendly than typical mattress materials.
- Saatva comes in three firmness levels: Plush Soft, Luxury Firm (a middle-firmness option), and Firm. The firmness of the foams used in each mattress’s construction determines the firmness of each mattress.
- In each model, shoppers have a choice between an 11.5″ thickness and 14.5″ thickness.
- Saatva has an organic cotton cover and a cushiony Euro-top.
- Individually wrapped comfort coils and a layer of memory foam help the mattress adapt to the contours of your body, relieving pressure.
- A base of tempered steel coils gives the mattress support and durability and prevents sagging.
- The edges of the mattress are encased in supportive foam. This casing reinforces the structure and durability of the mattress.
- Saatva comes in three firmness levels and two height options.
- Saatva uses springs, which makes its models sturdier and helps with airflow and temperature control.
- Saatva has an edge support system that allows sleepers to maximize the surface area of the bed.
- Both incorporate memory foam somewhere in the construction.
- Both use some materials deemed to be environmentally friendly.
- Allswell has more of a traditional memory foam feel where sleepers slowly sink into the mattress.
- Allswell is all-foam, while Saatva has two sets of steel coils.
The all-foam Allswell Luxe and Saatva Luxury Firm are comparable in firmness. Saatva has a bit more spring, while Allswell is a little slower moving. Learn more about the firmness and feel of each mattress in the videos below.
Motion Transfer Differences
Both are pretty equal in terms of motion isolation, but Allswell has a little bit of an edge because it is all-foam and has more of that slow-moving, memory foam feel. Check out the motion transfer for each mattress in the videos below.
Pick Allswell If …
- You like memory foam- Allswell has more of a traditional memory foam feel, much more so than Saatva. It may be a good choice if you prefer a classic memory foam feel.
- You are on a budget- Allswell is less expensive, which gives you the opportunity to save some money if you really can’t decide between the two mattresses.
Pick Saatva If …
- You like traditional spring mattresses- Saatva has a coil-on-coil design and is very much a spring mattress. If you have had success with traditional spring mattresses before, then you will probably feel right at home with the Saatva.
- You switch positions at night- Saatva’s coil construction and pillow-top make it more supportive and more comfortable for sleepers who change positions. It’s a great mattress for people who like to sleep in multiple positions throughout the night.
Saatva and Allswell are two very different options, but they overlap in firmness. Hopefully this comparison has helped you understand which is a better option for you. Please leave any specific questions about either brand in the comments.
