Allswell Classic Luxe Mattress Review
Our Allswell Luxe Classic mattress review takes a look at this new luxury all foam mattress that recently hit the market. Allswell is one of the new online mattress companies that are taking over the mattress industry.
Allswell has recently released two beds: the Luxe Classic and the Luxe Classic Firm. Both are premium beds, built of the highest-quality materials though they have totally different construction (one is an all foam mattress while the other is a hybrid containing pocketed coils).
The one we’ll be reviewing today is the softer of these two, made entirely of various foams. It offers a perfect feel for side sleepers and back sleepers who prefer softer mattresses as it has several foam layers which make up a 12″ thick mattress that is topped with breathable cover quilted with super plush memory foam.
This in-depth review of the Allswell Luxe Classic mattress evaluates all of the criteria we use to determine what constitutes a good mattress, which includes firmness / support, comfort, sleeping hot, and other features as outlined below.
Read our in-depth review to see what we feel about this luxurious new mattress! (Review updated)
Construction and Materials
The Allswell Luxe Classic mattress is a 12″ all foam mattress made up of 5 layers of various foams.
- 1″ Top Comfort Layer – This layer is made of 1″ of quilted memory foam sewn into a cover and it is designed to improve airflow and relieve pressure points, while providing softness and a luxurious feel to the top.
- 1.5″ Comfort Layer – This layer is 1.5″ of memory foam that, when combined with the quilted top comfort layer provides a nice contouring to your body and an incredibly plush, comfortable and pressure relieving feel.
- 1″ Contour Layer – This layer is 1″ of breathable proprietary Air Flow Foam designed to dissipate heat and provide contouring. It is really soft to the touch and responds slowly to pressure which extends the contouring of the comfort layers deeper into the mattress.
- 3″ Transition Layer – This layer is made of 3″ of Super Soft Foam that acts as a transitional support layer between the upper and lower layers and has a quicker response to pressure than the foam layers above. It is designed to provide the sleeper with some lift and eliminate the feeling of being stuck in foam.
- 5.5″ Foundation Layer – This layer is 5.5″ of high density polyfoam that acts as the foundation, gives the bed its shape and provides deep compression support.
The cover of this mattress is made of the company’s special fabric that is breathable, soft and cool to the touch. It improves the airflow through the mattress and aids in cooling.
In addition, the cover is quilted with super soft foam that makes you initially sink into the bed and feel like you are sleeping on clouds.
All in all, the exterior of this bed is extremely soft and luxurious which is something we normally see only in mattresses costing 3-4x the cost of this one.
Firmness & Support
The Allswell Luxe Classic mattress only comes in one firmness option and we rate it at a 5,5 out of 10 (10 being the firmest).
It feels more like a medium-firm mattress, in that the top comfort layers and soft cover provide a plush, luxurious feel with the underlying support layers providing firmer support below.
With so many mattresses, since I am a heavier sleeper, I tend to press through the top comfort layers and feel a base layer below which is often harder and not as comfortable.
This wasn’t the case with the Alswell. Although I compressed the soft top comfort layers and sunk into the bed to a certain degree, I didn’t bottom out and come to rest on the foundation of our bed.
The first thing I felt when I laid down on the mattress was the contouring feel of the memory foam in the cover and comfort layers. As mentioned, I sunk into the mattress to a decent degree, but I didn’t feel trapped in foam.
The comfort layers and the top cover provided me with comfort and relieved pressure points while the firmer high-density support layers below prevented me from sinking all the way down through the mattress.
I personally like the mattresses with a softer feel and for me this one was of the perfect firmness. As I have already mentioned as a heavier sleeper and a side-sleeper, I like softer mattresses that can cradle my body and relieve pressure points while supporting my weight and preventing me from bottoming out.
The Allswell Luxe Classic mattress did exactly this – provided me with a perfect balance of comfort and support.
Overall, we felt that this mattress works good for side sleepers, in that it has a soft top comfort layers that hug and mold to your hips and shoulders and prevent the development of pressure points on your body.
It provides you with just the right amount of comfort necessary for side sleeping position without causing you to feel enveloped by foam, and is firm enough for back sleepers and stomach sleepers as well.
This all foam mattress is quite comfortable, with the extra soft and plush top comfort layers and the cooling cover material providing a soft and supple sleeping environment, while the various foam layers below work to support and contour the body during sleep.
Although we both sunk into this mattress to a certain degree, especially me as I’m significantly heavier from Kaye (230 lbs vs. 115), it did not cause us to feel trapped in foam or Kaye to experience that sinking down into a hole feel that traditional memory foam mattresses tend to cause.
We could easily switch positions without too much motion transfer during the night for Kaye when I get up or move around.
Being soft enough in the top comfort layers, it worked perfectly well for us as side sleepers. It cradled our hips and shoulders, relieved our pressure points and created a cool and comfortable sleeping surface.
The Allswell mattress does a good job of sleeping cool during the night due to breathable foam layers and special cooling cover that allows greater airflow through the mattress to prevent the build up of heat and keep you cool and comfortable all night.
It did a great job of preventing sweating during the night and we did not experience the sticky feeling that we often do with foam mattresses in the least bit which was something we really were thankful for.
Sinkage & Motion Transfer
The Allswell Luxe Classic causes some sinkage as it is more on the softer side. The fact that I weigh around 230 lbs tends to have a rather large bearing on the degree of sinkage I experience when sitting and lying on mattresses, and I compressed the soft comfort layers of this mattress quite a bit.
However, the firmer support layers below prevented me from sinking all the way down through the mattress and come to rest on the foundation of our bed.
Kaye, who is half my weight, experienced much less sinkage than I did, but again this is to be expected due to her much lighter weight. The Allswell also didn’t cause her to roll into me or experience the feeling of sinking into a hole.
As for the edge support, the edge support with this mattress is about average compared to other mattresses. Although the cushioning foam layers on top may appear to affect the edge support of this bed, the firmer foam used in the base of the Allswell prevents the excessive sinkage and helps the mattress maintain its shape.
I sunk through the comfort layers pretty quickly when sitting on the edges, but didn’t bottom out as it is often the case with other softer memory foam mattresses, and I slept near the edge at times but I did not experience any of the “rolling off” the edges.
Motion transfer was minimal with the Allswell Luxe Classic due to its all-foam construction, which is known to offer superior reduction in motion transfer between sleepers moving during the night.
This is often a big issue for us, when my heavier 230 lbs body moves or gets out of the bed and wakes Kaye up during the night, but with this mattress, Kaye felt no disruption in her sleep when we changed positions which made for happy sleeping for both of us.
Smell / Off-Gassing
Luckily, Allswell gets high marks in this category for creating a mattress that doesn’t have too much of a noticeable smell upon opening the box.
There was markedly less off-gassing and odor that memory foam mattresses usually have, which was rather surprising to us given its all foam construction. Any smell that was present dissipated within a few hours.
Allswell is pretty standard when it comes to their warranty and support offerings. Most mattress companies offering mattresses in this category share about the same offerings in terms of sleep trials and warranty, and Allswell is no exception here.

The Allswell Luxe Classic is VERY reasonably priced for a mattress of such a quality, coming in at $585 for a Queen. This is great price given the luxuriousness of the materials and construction used.
The Allswell mattress is a great bed that combines multiple layers of high-quality foams with a soft and extremely comfortable cover. The premium materials and excellent craftsmanship make Alswell a luxury mattress that can compete with other beds costing much more.
If you’re looking for a mattress with a softer feel and excellent comfort necessary for all sleeping positions, especially side sleeping, the Allswell is the right choice for you. The use of the multiple layers of high-quality, plush foams on top and dense foams in support layers makes it have less motion transfer and sleep cooler than many other all foam mattresses.
A soft and breathable cover of this bed offers a silky, smooth feel and is cool and pleasant to the touch which aids in cooling and adds to the overall comfort and luxuriousness of this mattress.
The Allswell is a good choice for those that like the hug and contour of foam without feeling “trapped in the mattress”. It will provide you with good pressure relief and with the right balance of comfort and support necessary for a quality night’s sleep.
