Findings

There are many things to like about this pillow. First off, I prefer a shredded foam pillow over a standard foam pillow. Shredded foam contours better and you can scrunch it up to hug the contour of your neck. Shredded foam also breathes better, especially when it is loosely packed.

In my opinion this pillow is overstuffed. I took out about a quarter of the fill to get it to a height that worked for me. I will probably end up taking out even more. I think the fill is simply remainder foam that is left over when making foam mattresses. Rather than going to waste, the foam can be used in pillows, bean bag chairs, etc.

Here’s a closeup of the fill that’s inside the pillow:

This pillow has a double zipper system so that is more difficult for children to access the foam inside. The pillow also comes with a bamboo cover which makes it soft and breathable.

To give you an idea of how the foam reacts, I took some out and squished it. Check out the video below:

Conclusion

With a 30 day money back guarantee and the backing of Amazon, this pillow is a tremendous value. If you tried the My Pillow but would like something with more customization, I would give this one a try. The foam is denser than the My Pillow so it won’t be as light or recover as quickly but you get good pressure relief. The pillow itself is not washable either but you can machine wash the outer bamboo cover.

              What memory foam mattress topper do you recommend for a firm foam mattress? I now have a Tuft and Needle mattress, and I am a side sleeper.

                Have you contacted Tuft and Needle? They may be able to help you with the firmness issue.
