MyPillow Pillow Review


Sizing and Pricing

The My Pillow comes in two sizes:

  • Standard/Queen: $79.95 
  • King: $89.95

Overview

  • Comfort: Adjustable feel for your desired level of comfort
  • Temperature:  Heat dissipates quickly from the MyPillow 
  • Smell:  There was a faint smell when unboxing which dissipated within a few hours

Featuring its eccentric founder, the MyPillow is heavily advertised on television channels across the US. MyPillow’s patented interlocking fill allows you to adjust the loft just by fluffing. It features a cotton cover and 100% shredded polyurethane foam interior. MyPillow guarantees it will be “the most comfortable pillow you’ll ever own.

Though, there is no zipper or removable cover for washing or adjusting the fill level internally. The entire pillow is machine washable and dryer safe.

Standard size is 18.5″ x 28″

 


Comfort

The interlocking foam interior gives the MyPillow a lumpy feeling. The MyPillows’ adjustable polyurethane foam interior allows you to fluff and adjust to fit your needs. When fluffing, the loose pieces of polyurethane foam stick together to increase the loft. To decrease loft, shake the pillow out to separate the foam pieces.

A plus for the MyPillow is that it can be easily manipulated fit your sleeping position or desired comfort level. Conversely, if you don’t like adjusting your pillow between each position the MyPillow may not be a good fit.

For our tester, the MyPillow will work for back and side sleeping but her head is slightly elevated past the neutral resting position when sleeping on her stomach.

 


Performance

Loft: 6″

10lb: 3” indentation, 4”loft

The 10 pound weight causes the surrounding surface of the MyPillow buckles. The interlocking polyfoam filling does not support the weight well, and doesn’t bounce back fully after the weight is removed. Although, it can easily be manually fluffed to regain its original shape. When you lay your head down the pillow will conform around you.

 


Temperature

The MyPillow is one of the coolest pillows we’ve tested. The interlocking polyfoam fill allows for more airflow than memory foam pillows. If you’re flipping over to the cool side of the pillow all night the MyPillow may help keep you cool. The 100% cotton cover also allows heat dissipate quickly.

A hand was placed on the MyPillow for one minute and off for one minute. Sped up at 3x.

Once the hand was removed the highest recorded pillow temperature was 86° which dropped to 75°.

Conclusion

For the cost, there are much better options out there than the MyPillow. There is a sparse amount of interlocking fill that makes the MyPillow feel lumpy and cheap.
