Amerisleep AS1 mattress review

Take a deeper look into our review of the AS1 mattress, including our methodology, scoring and mattress performance to help you determine if this could be the mattress for you.

Visit Amerisleep

Set up test

The AS1  mattress took us just under a  minute and a half to set up. It was light and easy to maneuver, but it didn’t take its full shape immediately after unboxing.

So for our setup test, Amerisleep AS1 gets a 8.5 out of 10.

Motion Transfer Test

Motion transfer may sound like a fancy mattress term, but it’s really just the amount of movement you feel if you’re sleeping partner gets up or changes positions in the middle of the night.

Part A - The Humans

The Mattress Advisor motion transfer test is a two-part test. We start by asking both RJ and Asha to lie on the bed, blindfolded, and rate on a scale from 1 to 10 how much movement they felt when their partner was moving around with 10 being no movement at all.

RJ and Asha noticed they could feel their partner moving around when they were blindfolded so they gave it a collective score of 6.5 for motion transfer.

Part B - The Wine

Next, comes our wine test. This tests provides a great visual indicator of how much motion is being transferred from one side of the bed to another.

We had RJ lie down and roll back and forth a few times. We then took a look at how much the wine inside of the glass moved. Take a look for yourself.

Although the wine was pretty shaky, the glass itself stayed still.  So we gave it a 7.5.

So for a total motion transfer score, we gave Amerisleep AS1 a 7 out of 10.

Edge Support Test

When choosing a mattress, you may not think to consider how much support the edge provides. But this is an important aspect to consider if you find yourself sleeping on the edge of your bed or use the end to get ready in the morning.

The Mattress Advisor edge support test is a two-part test.

Part A - The Shoe Test

To start, we asked both RJ and Asha to sit on the edge of the bed to tie their shoes. They rated this task on a scale from one to ten, with 10 being “extremely easy, with exceptional edge support.”

According to RJ and Asha, the AS1 had great edge support! They scored it a 9.25 for the edge shoe test.

Part B - The Side Test

Next, we had RJ and Asha lie on the edge of the bed in each sleeping position, side, stomach and back, to see if they could sleep comfortably in that section of the bed.

Once again, RJ and Asha found the edge very supportive while they stretched out on the side. They felt like the AS1 would keep them safe from the floor. Once again they scored it a 9.25 for the edge support side.

So Amerisleep AS1 gets a 9.25 out of 10 for edge support.

Pressure Relief Test

When shopping for a mattress, you’ll want to find one that puts minimal pressure on your hips, thighs and shoulders. Let’s take a look at how well the AS1 provides pressure relief.

We measure pressure relief by using a pressure mapping film that shows areas of high pressure. Here’s what you need to know: the cool spots are good and the warms spots are bad. The warmer the color, the more pressure is being placed on that area of the body.

We saw a lot of warm colors and deep red tones in RJ’s shoulders and hips. So we gave him a 6 for pressure relief.

Asha’s shoulders, hips, and midsection stayed relatively pressure free so we gave her a 7.5.

So for a total pressure relief score, Amerisleep AS1 gets a 6.75 out of 10.

Spine Alignment Test

Did you know your sleeping posture is just as important as your posture when you are awake?  For every mattress we test, we take a look at how well it keeps your spine in a straight line.

We took a close up of both RJ and Asha’s backs to see the alignment. For proper alignment, you’ll want to see a straight line from the neck all the way to the tailbone.

Both RJ and Asha’s spines were pretty straight with a slight upwards curve towards the base of the neck.

For spine alignment, Amerisleep AS1 gets a 8.75 out of 10.

Responsiveness Test

Responsiveness is a fancy way of saying how well your mattress adjusts to your body movements. If you change positions throughout the night, you’ll want a mattress that still provides the same amount of comfort and support in that new position.

 

We had RJ and Asha lie in each sleeping position: side, stomach and back. As they changed positions and got settled in, we asked them to rate on a scale from one to ten how quickly and easily the mattress responded to their movement.

RJ and Asha noted a slight delay in this mattresses response rate.

So Amerisleep AS1 gets a 7.25 out of 10 for responsiveness.

What Amerisleep AS1 customers have to say

  • “I found amerisleep online and decided to try it. It is one of the best beds I have ever owned! I have purchased several very expensive beds in my lifetime. I am so impressed with the price and how comfortable it is. My wife and i like a pretty firm bed. The A1 was perfect for us. I will be getting one for my guest bedroom as well.” – Tim
  • “Loved the as1 for the first few nights, my husband not so much. But i called customer support and they are sending us a matteess topper so it would resemble the as2. Great customer service, great products would reccomend to everyone!!!!” – Jess
  • “This is a great firm mattress. Know that you want a very firm mattress before buying. If you do paperwork or live on your bed then this mattress provides a nice and very comfortable level / sturdy surface. There isn’t a lot of give in the mattress… so at night when you sleep the firmness is more apparent than when just sitting on the bed. I think the mattress is very true to how the website describes it.” – KP
