Our team at Sleep Foundation conducts extensive hands-on tests for each mattress to provide you with the most reliable, data-driven recommendations and reviews. Below are key guidelines that inform our testing methodology:
Our testers lie on the surface of each mattress to evaluate factors such as contouring and support. We also use specialized tools to measure performance criteria like pressure relief, heat retention, and motion isolation.
We test each mattress using various sleep positions to observe whether a mattress is better suited for side, back, or stomach sleeping. We roll around the surface and sit on the edges to gauge ease of movement and perimeter support.
We have tested hundreds of mattresses and bring years of experience in the mattress industry to the test lab. Our testing team covers a wide range of sleep preferences, sleep positions, and body types. This helps us represent as many sleeper types as possible in our reviews.
Allswell is a home furnishings company which aims to combine quality materials and craftsmanship with affordable pricing. The Walmart-owned brand offers a range of bedding and bath goods, including sheets, bed frames, pillows, blankets, and towels.
Allswell exclusively offers hybrid mattresses. The online retailer currently makes four models: Allswell, Brick, Luxe, and Allswell Supreme. Each design combines memory foam and pocketed coils, but pricing varies based on quality of materials, thickness, and other features.
The Allswell is the company’s flagship mattress and is the most budget-friendly of the four designs. At 10 inches thick, the Allswell also has the lowest profile. The 12-inch Luxe and Brick are taller, upgraded versions of the Allswell. The 14-inch Allswell Supreme is the company’s most expensive design. The Supreme offers additional cooling technology and superior edge support compared to the other models.
We will focus on the Brick, which is the firmer of Allswell’s two mid-priced models. We’ll break down the Brick’s materials, construction, and performance so you can determine if it’s the right fit.
Ease of Movement:
Allswell Brick Video Review
Watch the video below to see how the Allswell Brick performed when put to the test in our lab.
The Brick is good at isolating motion, thanks to foam comfort layers and a pocketed coil support core. The firm cover and denser foam help absorb motion across the mattress.
While the coil support system does lend some bounce, individually wrapped coils help minimize motion transfer. This is an especially appealing feature for couples and light sleepers, as movement is less likely to ripple across the bed.
With its plush quilted cover and foam comfort layers, the Brick offers some pressure relief. The memory foam offers subtle cradling, helping to reduce pressure buildup.
Because of the Brick’s firm feel, sleepers aren’t likely to sink into the mattress and experience deep contouring. As such, side sleepers under 130 pounds might not get the extra cushioning needed to prevent pressure points on the shoulders and hips.
The Brick Mattress utilizes various cooling technologies intended to help prevent sleepers from overheating. The breathable foam cover is made with gel infusions designed to dissipate excess heat.
Memory foam has a reputation for trapping heat, but the Brick uses copper infusions that are engineered to draw heat away from the body. The coil support core also promotes temperature neutrality through increased airflow.
The hybrid construction of the Brick Mattress prevents sagging along the edges with a robust coil support system.
Sturdier coils along the Brick’s perimeter help prevent the sensation of rolling off the bed, especially if you sleep near the side of the bed. Stronger edge support increases how much space there is to use, which is ideal for couples or individuals who like to sprawl out while sleeping.
People suffering from back pain or other mobility issues may also appreciate the Brick’s reinforced edges, as they offer more support for getting in and out of bed.
Ease of Movement
Memory foam typically conforms to the body and is slower to bounce back to its original shape when pressure is removed. The Brick, however, has just enough springiness to facilitate movement. The mattress’ high-density polyfoam helps prevent sinkage, while the coiled core provides extra bounce when shifting positions.
The Brick facilitates movement, which makes it conducive to sex. The coil core adds responsiveness, which makes transitioning between positions easier.
The bounce from the coils coupled with a firmer top layer helps prevent the feeling of being stuck that can sometimes occur with memory foam. Unlike many traditional innerspring mattresses, the Brick isolates motion well and is not overly noisy
The Allswell Brick produces a faint off-gassing smell when it’s first unboxed. The odor should dissipate once the mattress has been aired out for a few hours.
Off-gassing refers to the chemical-like smell that occurs when certain foams are exposed to air and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are released. Allswell’s foams are CertiPUR-US certified, so they emit low VOCs.

People who sleep on their side typically require extra cushioning to prevent pressure buildup on their hips and shoulders. The Brick’s foam comfort layers can help avoid pressure points by contouring to these sensitive areas. While the quilted foam cover adds some plushness, it is still on the firmer side.
The mattress’ mild cradling and firm (7) overall feel is better suited for side sleepers over 130 pounds. Side sleepers under 130 pounds might not experience sufficient cushioning to prevent pressure points. These sleepers will likely fare better with one of Allswell’s softer models, like the Supreme.
As the name suggests, the Brick is a firm mattress that provides excellent support to the weight-bearing lumbar region. A mattress that is too soft will cause the back to sink too deeply, which can throw off body alignment and lead to aches and pains.
The Brick provides plenty of support for back sleepers in any weight category, though its firm feel is more suitable for those over 130 pounds who require less cushioning.
A firmer mattress is typically a better choice for stomach sleepers, since sinkage in the midsection puts strain on the spine. The Brick’s substantial support core and dense polyfoam helps prevent excess sinkage across all weight groups.
Allswell Brick Mattress Review Breakdown
The Allswell Brick Mattress has a hybrid design that combines memory foam and pocketed coils. It is the firmest Allswell model and registers as a 7 on the 10-point firmness scale.
The Brick has a quilted swirl foam cover containing gel infusions intended to draw excess heat away from the mattress’ surface.
Beneath the cover is a 1-inch copper-infused memory foam comfort layer. The memory foam conforms to the body while helping to prevent pressure points. The use of copper is intended to conduct heat away from the sleeper. The antimicrobial properties of copper are thought to reduce odors associated with bacteria buildup.
A second comfort layer comprises 2 inches of high-density polyfoam. This layer is a buffer between the softer memory foam and the sturdier coil system below. The foam’s higher density helps prevent excess sinkage while encouraging proper spinal alignment.
The polyfoam comfort layer is followed by a coil support core, giving the mattress the bounce that many all-foam designs lack. Greater responsiveness also makes shifting positions easier.
The Brick’s coil system helps sleepers stay cool, since there is more space for air to circulate compared to dense foam. Individually pocketed coils reduce motion transfer, so movement on one side of the bed is less likely to be felt on the other. The Brick also uses sturdier coils along the perimeter for greater edge support. Reinforced edges increase usable surface area while also making it easier to get out of bed.
Firm – 7
The Brick has four distinct layers, including a quilted swirl foam cover. A two-layer comfort system comprising memory foam and high-density polyfoam sits above a sturdy pocketed coil core.
The Brick can be purchased on the Allswell and Walmart websites.

Mattress removal and recycling fees are not refundable. Allswell mattresses purchased through Walmart may be subject to different terms and conditions.
Improper use that would void the mattress warranty also nullifies the sleep trial. Each household is eligible for one return per year.
