After a long run or bike ride I need a good night’s rest to be ready for the next day. It’s surprising how well I sleep depends on what type of pillow I use. I used to buy the cheapest pillows I could find at at my local retailers. When I started waking up with headaches, I decided it was time to spend a little more to find the pillow that was right for me. It took me a lot of pillows and a lot of wasted before I discovered memory foam.
After my first memory foam pillow mysteriously disappeared and kept reappearing in my son’s bedroom, I was excited to get a new pillow so I wouldn’t have to keep chasing down my old one. The Shredded Memory Foam Pillow with Kool-Flow Micro-Vented Bamboo Cover did not disappoint. When I took it out of the shipping box, I have to admit, I was skeptical. The pillow was rolled tight like a bedroll and looked like it would be completely flat. However, it plumped right up after taking it out of the packaging. After sleeping on it a week, I can say I like it better than other pillows I’ve tried.
Pros of the Memory Foam Pillow:
- Retains it’s shape
- Good back support for reading in bed
Cons of the Memory Foam Pillow:
- Hard to sleep in the middle as it keeps my head up too high.
I don’t like to sleep with my head up too high as it puts strain on my neck. However, I found with this pillow, I could sleep closer to the edge and it’s really comfortable on my neck. One thing that really stands out for me is the micro-vented cover. My body temperature rises at night and I tend to sweat. While the pillow didn’t stop the rest of my body from sweating, it did keep my head and neck from getting sticky. A huge plus for me. The pros definitely outweighed the cons.
