Allswell — a Walmart brand — now offers three hybrid foam and coil mattresses priced significantly lower than much of the competition. Can a budget-friendly bed-in-a-box stand up to the quality and comfort of other higher-priced models out there? I tried Allswell’s lowest-priced option to see how it stacks up.

Allswell sent me a mattress for free so that I could try it out. I’ve slept on it before giving this review, and you can rest assured you’re getting an honest, unbiased opinion.

Mattress review

Unpacking the mattress

The Allswell mattress comes like most shipped mattresses do — rolled up in a box. While it’s recommended that you don’t move this box by yourself, I was able to bring it inside and get it to my bedroom with the help of a furniture dolly. It was no problem flopping the boxed mattress from the dolly onto the boxspring once I had it in the room.

It would have been helpful to have a drawing depicting the right direction to open the box so that the mattress would be positioned properly. But it was easy enough to remove and unwrap the plastic-covered mattress roll from the box. Before I was even finished unwrapping it, I could hear the air rushing back into the mattress within seconds.

Initial thoughts

The mattress seemed to inflate within a matter of minutes, although Allswell’s website says that it can take up to 48 hours for the bed to fully inflate. Crawling in on the first night, I found the mattress to be firm but comfortable. No matter which way I turned during the night, the mattress seemed to conform to pressure points like my hips, shoulders and knees without creating that “sinking-in” feeling of some traditional foam beds.

The edge support leaves a bit to be desired, though. I had to sit back farther than usual to stay supported on the edge of the bed.

One month in

After sleeping on this mattress for a month, it’s surpassed my expectations for a budget-friendly bed. It’s stayed firm and helps relieve pressure on my shoulders and hips without creating a body imprint in the mattress.

At times I’ve felt a little warm where my body contoured into the mattress, but cooled off after readjusting my position. The Allswell Luxe mattress comes with a cooling swirl gel foam built into the cover, which this model doesn’t include. So if staying cool while you sleep is important to you, you might consider upgrading to this mid-range option — still more affordable than many other options out there.

Pros and cons

Pros

  • Budget-friendly. Allswell offers a quality hybrid bed-in-a-box without the hefty price tag.
  • Easy to handle. In a pinch, this mattress can be easily moved and set up by yourself.
  • Free shipping and returns. You won’t pay a cent for shipping or returns made within the brand’s 100-night trial period.

Cons

  • Lacks edge support. If there’s one downfall to its construction, it’s that it lacks advanced edge support.

Allswell vs. competitors

Allswell offers three hybrid mattresses priced well below many competitors. If you’re working with a tight budget but don’t want to sacrifice quality, comfort or convenience, Allswell could be the needle in a haystack you’re looking for.

Bottom line

I have to admit: I was skeptical of such an affordably-priced queen-size mattress. But the quality of Allswell’s lowest-priced model really surprised me. And I can certainly tell that it’s a hybrid with foam and spring coils inside, as it feels more supportive than other all-foam beds I’ve tried.

Would you recommend this mattress to a friend?

Yes. I would recommend this mattress to anyone who’s shopping on a budget but doesn’t want to throw away money on poor-quality construction. This bed is the real deal!
