Pillow suggestions

I ve been looking for a pillow for a while but cant really go in store and sctually try them.
I prefer something medium firm that doesn't collapse under my head and also I am a hot head. Had a foam pillow with cooler mat and would wake with sweaty face at night.
Thanks!

Sleep Factory would not have been my first choice. But they had a Christmas sale.

After a dozen or more pillows so we bought two with a Lavender scent, two years ago. Not cheap for sure, but.

They are perfect. Good support, no deterioration. Still the best yet.

My personal fav is the Coop Eden. Adjustable and sleeps cool. Have tried other (expensive) pillows and it came out on top.

@vdub07 may i know where you purchased your Coop Eden? I was eying this pillow as well and waited for the Black Friday sale today -- but noticed that they no longer ship to Canada. Would be great if there was also a place to purchase this within Canada.

I second this Eden pillow, best one I ever owned, I purchased 2 and made one into a cooling pillow by getting the cooling case and extra cooling gel foam.
Unfortunate the you longer ship to Canada but I had it shipped to an Amerifriend.

My suggestion if to subscribe to their mailing list they usually have a big 20 to 30% off sale in November and one in the summer.
They have promo on now with code FRIYAY: 20% OFF SELECT PILLOWS, 25% OFF BEDDING, AND 30% OFF SUPPORT PILLOWS

Add Costco to this list. Online or Instore.

Personally, Our favourite pillow last 5 years or so has been their Beautyrest Platinum. Polyester fill with 100% cotton cover.

https://www.costco.ca/beautyrest-platin ... 58433.html

Key also to a good pillow … replace it frequently. The lifespan / effectiveness of a pillow is actually quite short … most 1 or 2 years (3000 to 6000 hours). Most people don’t maintain their pillows correctly … or replace them often enough. A pillow is a key investment in your health & well being. We need a good nights sleep to be able to live well in the daylight hours, stave off illnesses etc

I am still looking for the best pillow there is, so I guess I will post my reviews. I originally started off with those cheap cotton-filled pillows. It is nice to hear reviews from people to give me some direction.

About 4 years ago, I looked for the softest pillow filling on the Internet. I guess it is arguable, but I believe it is down (which is the small feathers under the outer feathers). You can buy the cheaper feather/down mix or the fake synthetic down alternative. The best stuff is white goose down, the hungarian goose down or the even rarer wild duck down. The fluffyness is rated by fill-power. The higher the fill-power the more expensive.

I managed to snag one on sale and slept on it for a while. It is the softest pillow I have ever slept on, but the down has a problem that is it tends to get hot. The down is meant to keep the bird warm, so it is an insulator. It is like sleeping on a cloud which eventually gets hot. The pillow was high quality. I learned that the 2" gusset on the side of the pillow helps support the neck for side sleepers. This is why I tend to look for pillows with a hump or gusset these days. Another problem is that over time, the pillow will start leaking down and lose some of the fluffyness.

The next thing I tried was the highest rated pillow on Amazon.com (US) which is the COOP pillow. I bought the regular one instead of the Eden version mentioned on this thread. I think the Eden one is supposed disperse heat better, but I am not sure.

I really loved that fact that I could adjust the filling for the correct pillow height. The memory foam doesn't absorb heat like the other pillows that I have tried which means I would roll around less. The problem with this pillow is it doesn't have any gusset or hump for neck support. It is not as soft as other pillows I have tried, but provides good support. I would describe this pillow as like sleeping on a sponge. I am currently sleeping on this pillow for about 8 months now.

I still can't choose between what is the best pillow. I am still looking for other pillows to try.

I am also looking for pillow suggestions. Looking for pillows that are King size and preferably some type of memory foam.
Has anyone tried pillows from Endy?

If you want the "most comfortable pillow you will ever own" combined with a plethora of conspiracy theories - you can order MyPillow.

I bought these. Quality did not meet my expectations - seams ripped out of pillows quickly. Warranty process is a nightmare. Ended up processing warranty through Miller Waste on one of their weekly drive-bys and purchasing something else
