Over the past few months I’ve been sharing some of my favorite products with you. But I won’t recommend just any product. I make it a point to only share products that truly had a significant and positive impact on my life. Today I’ll be sharing a little bit about another one of my “must-have” products, but first I want to explain a little bit about why I chose this particular item.
I’ve realized that several of the products I’ve written about so far have been related to sleep in some way. That’s a bit surprising to be honest, because I don’t even particularly like sleeping! (My husband and daughter are the sleep-aholics of the family, while I’ve always tended to be both a night owl and an early riser.) But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that even though I don’t need much sleep in terms of quantity, I really need to focus on getting good quality sleep.
I’ve tried out a lot of different products in my quest for better sleep, like different varieties of sheets, fancy mattresses, special blankets, and more. You can read about some of those experiments in my posts about my favorite set of bedsheets, as well as my life-changing knee pillow. And today I’ll be sharing another product that I’ve added to my sleep arsenal. :-) It’s my very favorite pillow—the aptly named MyPillow!
4 Things I Love About MyPillow
1. It’s Adjustable
The first and foremost reason that I love my MyPillow is because it’s so “adjustable.” By adjustable, I mean that I can squish, squash, and fluff this pillow into whatever shape or loft I need. I’m a side sleeper, so I really need a pillow that provides enough support for my head and neck. Because MyPillow has a special interlocking fill, I can adjust it to where I want and it will actually [stay] that way overnight! No other pillow I’ve tried could do that.
There are different fill levels for MyPillow you can choose from: Yellow, White, Green, and Blue. I have the White option, which fits nicely and is plenty supportive. (The White fill level is also the size recommended for most women based on shoulder width and neck length.) You can click here to read more about the fill options for MyPillow.
2. It Stays Cool
Another reason why I like MyPillow is because it stays cool overnight. Other pillows that I’ve tried would heat up over time and would made my head too warm for comfort. It seemed like I was always flipping my pillow over, searching for the “cool side!” I never have to flip this pillow over because the whole thing stays nice and cool.
I use a standard cotton pillowcase, which is recommended when using MyPillow. According to their website, other types of pillowcases can inhibit the cooling effect of the pillow.
3. It’s Machine Washable
This pillow is really resilient when it comes to being washed. A lot of other pillows aren’t designed to be machine-washed, so you have to resort to pillow protectors and other measures to keep them clean. But I can toss this pillow right in my washer without a second thought! And it comes out clean and fresh every time, without any loss of support or loft.
4. It’s Guaranteed
I always hesitate when making pricier purchases, but I was reassured when I read that MyPillow comes with a 60-day money back guarantee. I appreciated knowing that I could give it a try for up to two months and still get my money back if I didn’t end up liking it. (Though I obviously didn’t end up needing my money back!) MyPillow also comes with a 10-year warranty that covers both manufacturing defects AND washing and drying. My MyPillow is still in great shape, but it’s nice to know that I could get a replacement if it ever got damaged in the wash.
Just to sum things up, this pillow has really helped me sleep more soundly and more comfortably. I’ve tried quite a few pillows over the years, and this one has definitely been my favorite so far. While my quest to get my Best Sleep Ever isn’t quite over yet, I’m closer to it than I’ve ever been! Check out MyPillow on Amazon here.
