It’s incredible to me how much impact a pillow can have on someone’s sleep. My husband has neck and back problems, so (it seems like) he is constantly switching pillows, trying to find the one that works best for him. I am a side sleeper, and while my current pillow is alright, I wanted to find one specifically designed for someone who sleeps on their side. Since I recently reviewed the Honeydew Travel Pillow, I thought I would return to Honeydew and give their Scrumptious Side Sleeper Pillow ($100) a try. I liked the travel pillow, so why not see if the side sleeper pillow is just as good?
I have been using the side sleeper pillow for a while now, and I must say that I like it. As with all of their other pillows, the side sleeper has a zipper at the top that allows you to adjust the fill so you can make it the right height for your body. What I like about the filling of this pillow is that it is soft, and yet, it’s still supportive. Because of this, the height you choose is the height it stays throughout the night. No more divots in the pillow or flat parts! Honeydew reports that the foam in their pillow is 100% CertiPUR-US certified and made without formaldehyde or heavy metals. The foam is copper-infused with natural antibacterial properties, keeping my pillow fresh every night. The copper also helps keep my pillow cool throughout the night, which is essential to me since I have recently become a “hot sleeper.” The cover on the pillow wicks away moisture, too, so my sleep is not interrupted by my head or face feeling overheated.
I like this pillow because it’s curved at the bottom. It supports my neck and shoulders when I’m sleeping. Honeydew also makes its pillows with a ribbon that encircles the entire pillow to maintain the structure. I appreciate that because I can’t tell you how many pillows my family has gone through that end up in the landfill.
If you’ve read any of my other reviews, you’ll know that I’m a pretty frugal (or, in some people’s minds, “cheap”) person. I want to have nice products, but I want to use my money responsibly. I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend $100 on a pillow. I mean, I can go to the store and grab one for $10, so why not? I decided to go with this pillow, though, because I wanted something that was high quality and my experience with their travel pillow made me confident I could trust that the price tag was worth it.
Made in the US, Honeydew is so sure that I’ll love their pillow that they provide a 60-day money-back guarantee (with free shipping, too!). I like a company that stands behind its product. I’m super happy with my purchase of the side sleeper pillow from Honeydew. It’s made my sleep a bit more scrumptious…now, should I let my hubby try it to see if it helps his neck and back?
