Okay I have been meaning to write this post FOREVER now as this pillow is one of my absolute most favorite things. It’s a memory foam pillow with a special silk pillowcase. If you listen to the podcast, you know this (they’ve been a sponsor for nearly a year now!) but I get asked about this pillow all the time, if I really do love it as much as I say I do (I DO!!!), and what makes it so great. So here is my review. And if you are intrigued remember that a) use our podcast code (BOP20) for 20% off and b) they have a no questions ask, 101 night guarantee so if you don’t like it – but you will!!!!
Getting a good night’s sleep is so important to me – I really pride myself on having that perfect sleep environment. To me, having the right pillow is just as important as having the right mattress… and as setting the tone for a good night of sleep (taking my CBD, reading for at least a half an hour (ideally an hour!), drinking enough water (but not too much!), etc. This pillow has made SUCH a difference in my quality of sleep and when I travel I miss it! (They do have a travel case for the pillow but I like traveling light… I just can’t be the person that travels with her pillow… yet?!)
NIGHT Pillow Review
I have had my NIGHT Pillow for years. I first wrote about the pillow here in 2016 when I did a post about tips for a good night of sleep. Since then, I’ve upgraded from the standard size pillow to two king size pillows. It has amazing benefits that are both aesthetic (better skin and hair) and anatomical (the way it supports your head and neck)
Meet the NIGHT Pillow
This pillow is made from a special type of memory foam. I like that it’s flatter than my fluffy pillows, and very firm. It cradles your head, but it bounces back immediately so if you move around it will adapt to your sleep position. There are two sizes: standard queen which measures 24 x 5 x 16 inches and king which measures 32 x 5 x 18 inches.
This memory foam pillow has been called “the most comfortable pillow in the world” by many a celebrity and I have to agree. The memory foam core is what makes it so special (but it’s better than any other memory foam pillow I’ve tried… other memory foams can be so dense and heavy). I find the comfort and support it provides to be unparalleled.
What I love most about it is that it is that it’s super lightweight, and that it self-adjusts to whatever sleep position you choose (I tend to alternate between sleeping on my side and on my stomach. I will add that the pillow is really good for stomach sleepers!
Black TriSilk Case
The mulberry silk pillowcase (you get one with your pillow!) is custom-fit to the pillow. At first I found the black color strange, but that’s for a reason – it negates light for a deeper sleep! It’s breathable, comfortable, and also just feels really nice.
Two notes on this! I recommend ordering an extra case or two so that you’re never without one! You can definitely machine wash it. I don’t know that you are supposed to but I send my pillowcases out with my regular wash & fold laundry and have had no issues with that // I know some people prefer to hand wash.
I will also add that the pillowcase is black for a reason (to block out light) BUT I am really happy that they’ve launched colorful pillowcases as well if the black hue is not for you… I keep mine under my duvet so that you can’t see it but I also have and love the white ones, pictured above!
My NIGHT Pillow Review
Pros of the NIGHT Pillow
Better Sleep // I sleep so much better with this pillow. So much better.
Better Hair // This is a big one for me; the silk covering helps to prevent tangling and bedhead and definitely helps to make a blowout last longer. I pull my hair up into a silk scrunchy before bed and between that and a night pillow don’t have to style my hair at all the next day. (A caveat that I have very thick, dry hair so when I do get a blowout, it lasts several days!)
Better Skin // One of the things I’ve personally noticed is that when I wake up in the morning, my skin has less pillow creases. There is also evidence that sleeping with a silk pillowcase can help prevent wrinkles.
Cons of the NIGHT Pillow
There aren’t really any cons, if we are being honest! I love mine so much. I will say that I bought it for my parents and they definitely weren’t sure about it at first (if you are used to always sleeping with down pillows there will be an adjustment!)
It is expensive, but the 101 night guarantee makes it pretty risk-free. If you hate it, just send it back and they will donate it.
I recommend this pillow to everyone I know, especially finicky sleepers. It’s such a game changer. Get this pillow!! This has made SUCH a big difference in my own personal sleep and I sleep so much better with it. (I even got an extra one for my parents’ house in Charleston so that I can sleep with it when I go home!) I am two steps away from getting the travel case. If I didn’t insist on traveling so lightly, it would definitely be on that train!
