Allswell Mattress Firmness and Feel
Now, let’s take a closer look at the Allswell’s firmness level and overall feel.
How Firm is the Allswell?
The Allswell is a firmer mattress, about 7.5/10 on our firmness scale. The top layers of foam are soft, but they are not too thick. I can press my hand in with no problem, but then the coils stop me from pushing in further.
Sleeping On The Allswell
With its thinner comfort layer, the Allswell is more supportive than comfortable. Because of this, we found the Allswell a good fit for back sleepers.
Side sleepers – or those looking for more comfort – should consider the Allswell Luxe or Allswell Supreme, because these mattresses feature thicker comfort layers and should offer better pressure relief for side sleepers of many sizes.
The Allswell has a higher firmness level than most mattresses, so it should provide the necessary support on pressure points. This makes it a great fit for stomach sleepers.
What Does the Allswell Feel Like?
While the Allswell does feature foam in its top layers, it has more of an innerspring feel. This gives the mattress a bit of bounce so it is very easy to move around.
Lying on the mattress, it feels more like sleeping on top of the mattress. While it does contain memory foam, the mattress does not have that classic, slow-sinking memory foam feel. If people prefer to sleep “in” their mattress, they should look for something with a thicker layer of soft memory foam on top.

Average Weight Sleepers – 130lbs – 230lbs
For average weight back sleepers, the Allswell should feel supportive and comfortable. It is a firmer mattress and there is a thin comfort layer that will let people’s hips sink in when they are on their back.
Average weight side sleepers, however, will likely feel quite a bit of pressure on the Allswell. When pressing into the comfort layer, it’s common to feel the coils beneath. This could result in shoulder and hip pain over time. Those who prefer this sleeping position will want to look for one of the best mattresses for side sleepers.
Stomach sleeping on the Allswell should feel balanced and comfortable, as the mattress stays flat and supportive. It could be one of the best mattresses for stomach sleepers.
Heavyweight Sleepers – Over 230lbs
Generally, heavier people will think the Allswell feels firmer than lighter people do. This makes it a good option for heavyweight back sleepers because it provides enough support from the coils. The top layer allows sleepers’ hips to sink in just a little bit, providing an extra cushion of comfort.
Side sleeping, the Allswell creates too much pressure for heavyweight people. Those weighing more than 230lbs are likely to feel significant strain on their shoulders and hips in this sleeping position. The Allswell is only 10” thick, so heavier sleepers will usually want to find a thicker mattress in order to get the support they need.
RELATED: Best Mattresses For Heavy People
Due to its firmness, the Allswell is a good fit for heavyweight stomach sleepers. Softer mattresses will cause sleepers’ hips to bow in, which can cause people to wake up with back pain. The Allswell, however, should offer plenty of support and provide the right amount of firmness.
Lightweight Sleepers – Under 130lbs
Sleepers should feel the Allswell is supportive enough to keep their bodies in alignment, making it a good option for lightweight back and stomach sleepers.
Lightweight people will find the Allswell is not supportive enough for side sleeping. The thin comfort layer likely won’t provide enough softness to alleviate pain on pressure points. Instead, they may want to look for one of the best soft mattresses.
Allswell Mattress Construction
The cover is quilted with a bit of foam for added softness and pressure relief.
Below that, there is a layer of open-celled memory foam for pressure relief and body contouring. Because the memory foam is made with charcoal and copper-infused gel, it should absorb heat and keep sleepers cool during the night. However, the comfort layer is not too thick, so it may not be a good fit for all sleepers.
The support layer makes up a large portion of the mattress. It is made with individually wrapped coils, which are designed to eliminate motion transfer and provide ample support. The coils give the Allswell the feeling of a traditional innerspring mattress, even though there is memory foam on top.
The Allswell mattress is 10” tall.

Allswell Mattress Performance
But how well does this mattress perform? Read on to learn more about the Allswell’s cooling features, motion transfer, edge support, and durability.
Sleeping Hot or Cold
The Allswell’s charcoal and copper-infused memory foam does a decent job at keeping the mattress cool at night. Because the layer is thin, it may not be a good fit for people who really struggle with sleeping hot at night.
For those of you who sleep with a partner, motion transfer is very important. When you fall asleep, and your partner moves around in the night, you don’t want their movements to wake you up!
Memory foam is one of the best materials at cutting down on motion transfer. However, while there are a few inches of memory foam on top of the Allswell, it isn’t isolating the motion very well.
I place a glass of water on one side of the Allswell, and when I push into the other side of the mattress, I see the water move around in the glass. I also lay down on one side of the mattress. When Marten got in and out of bed and moved around, I did feel his movements on my side of the mattress.
If you want the best mattress for couples, it is worth keeping this in mind.
While the Allswell isn’t the best with motion transfer, it does have some very nice edge support. Edge support is also important if you sleep with a partner, because good edge support lets you sleep toward the edge of the mattress without feeling like you are going to fall off.
When I sit down on the edge of the Allswell, it barely collapses, and the coils are letting me sit upright with no real effort. When I lie down near the edge of the Allswell, I do not feel like I am rolling off the mattress. The mattress actually features enhanced edge support, so I feel very secure in this position.
The Allswell should have average durability, and we expect it to last between 7-10 years.
Off-gassing is another word for the chemical smell that’s common after unboxing a new mattress. We noticed a slight odor after opening the Allswell, but it disappeared within 48 hours.
The Allswell’s coil layer is the only thing that would make the mattress noisy at night, but we did not notice any loud sounds while testing this mattress.
It should be easy for partners change positions on the Allswell, so it is a good mattress for sex. The top foam layers are very responsive, so if someone were to press their hand in and pull back, the mattress bounces back into place very quickly.

How Does The Allswell Compare to Other Mattresses?
It’s often helpful to take a look at several different mattresses before making a final purchasing decision. Let’s see how the Allswell compares to other popular bed-in-a-box brands.
Allswell vs. Tuft and Needle
The original Tuft and Needle mattress is significantly softer than the Allswell, with a 6.5/10 rating on our firmness scale. This makes it a better fit for average weight side sleepers. Because the Allswell has a 7.5/10 firmness rating, it is a better option for back and side sleepers.
Allswell and Tuft and Needle differ in terms of construction, too. The Allswell is a hybrid mattress made with coils and memory foam. Tuft and Needle, on the other hand, is an all-foam mattress. This makes the Tuft and Needle a good option for those who like to sink deeper into a mattress. Both mattress are 10” thick, which is standard for most base level models.
The Allswell mattress is slightly more affordable than the original Tuft and Needle. A queen sized Allswell mattress costs $449.00, and a queen sized Tuft and Needle costs $895.00.
Who Should Get the Allswell?
- Those who want to save money
- Those who prefer a firmer mattress
Who Should Get the Tuft and Needle?

Allswell vs. Casper
The Allswell and Casper are both supportive mattresses, but the Allswell is slightly firmer. Both are great options for back sleeping, but the Allswell is a better fit for stomach sleepers. Side sleepers may find the Allswell isn’t soft enough to support their pressure points, and instead will want to choose the Casper mattress.
Because the Allswell is made with coils and foam, it has more of a traditional innerspring feel. The Casper is an all-foam mattress, so it has more of a balanced feel. Sleepers slightly sink into the top of the Casper, but it’s still easy to move around on. We found the Allswell has better edge support, while the Casper has better motion transfer.
Those looking for a more affordable mattress will want to choose the Allswell. A queen sized Allswell costs $449.00, and a Casper of the same size costs $1495.00.
Now, let’s take a look at some of the frequently asked questions about the Allswell mattress.
How long will the Allswell mattress last?
The Allswell should last 7-10 years, which is typical for most mattress-in-a-box brands.
Can you flip the Allswell mattress?
You cannot flip an Allswell mattress. Because it has coils at the bottom and memory foam on top, flipping it would effect the overall feel of the mattress.
What if I don’t like my Allswell mattress?
If you find don't like your Allswell mattress within the initial 100-night sleep trial period, you can return it for a refund.
