It would be nice to have a cooling pillow that gives great neck-shoulder support that also doesn’t go flat on you, wouldn’t it? Well, Sleep Innovation does have such a thing.
The Sleep Innovations Cool Contour Memory Foam Pillow is a great pillow for all the side sleepers and back sleepers out there. If you never had a contour memory foam pillow, then you should really consider one. It can actually give you a better night sleep and holds up so much better than the cheap department store pillows you usually buy.
It can be confusing buying a pillow you never seen or used before. You may have some questions about the product before you buy it. We noticed this and have done a review to answer some of the more common questions people may have about this memory foam pillow.
We do recommend you check out the Reviews and Price of the Sleep Innovations Cool Contour Memory Foam Pillow Here.
The cover of this pillow is washable, not the pillow.
Many have reported that this pillow does not have an odor for them. I still recommend letting the pillow air out for a day before using it.
Does it work well for short people?
Yes, this pillow works very well for short people or really anyone. If you have a heavy head, then you might want to get a size bigger.
This pillow does not hurt your ears for the side sleepers out there.
The gel layer is to help with cooling. Gel Memory Foam is usually more breathable and sleeps cooler than regular memory foam.
The gel layer will not leak if punctured; it’s more of a solid than a liquid.
If you regularly suffer from night sweats or hot flashes, then you may need to talk to your doctor. This pillow will help a bit, but you need something that can actively cool you like a BedJet.
Firm or Soft
You will find memory foam pillows like the Sleep Innovations Cool Contour Pillow to be more on the firm side, but yet very supportive. This is the pillow you need if you have any neck pains or want a cooling pillow.
The cover for this pillow is just a standard stretchy cover. It is not waterproof. I would recommend getting a mattress encasement like this one if you want to have a cover that is waterproof and keeps dust mites away.
What the pillowcase does come with is actually really nice and soft if you want to use that instead of another pillowcase.
I would say this is not the best pillow for stomach sleepers. Back Sleepers and Side Sleepers will like this pillow the best.
Many people reported this pillow holding up very well over time and not losing its shape. Some even say it has gotten better over time from constant use.
Just with anything, you will need to break it in and this could be why some people say it gets better over time.
Comes compress in a box for shipping. You will need to give it time to inflate to its correct size before using. I like to wait at least 24 hours before using a new pillow.
Some people have reported it inflated quickly for them, but I still like to wait. I figure it’s better to give up one day in exchanged for years of use out of it.
Compared to the other more expensive neck pillows this pillow is an excellent value. This pillow can be just as effective as those pillows that cost hundreds more.
First Time With A Pillow Like This
If this is your first time with a pillow shaped like this neck pillow, then you will need to get used to it. I find that it can take 3 to 5 days to get used to a memory foam contour pillow. Once you get used to the pillow, there will be no going back; all other pillows will feel flat and useless.
Give it at least a week before you consider getting a different pillow.
You have a small end, and you have a high end.
The direction to keep it in is really up to you. Some people like having the little end towards their neck and others are the opposite.
Memory Foam Mattress
If you have or planning on getting a memory foam mattress, then you may want to consider getting these types of pillows. They work better on memory foam beds while regular pillows don’t offer the correct support.
