Does MyPillow Really Work?


Does MyPillow really work?If you’re tired of tossing and turning trying to get a good nights sleep, the MyPillow might be good for you. The inventor says that he guarantees that the most comfortable pillow you’ll ever own. Inventors seem to say a lot about their own products, but does this pillow actually stand up to the claims, and we really get some of the best sleep you’ve ever got just by changing your pillow and leaving all else the same?

Overview
Pillows are big business and there’s always companies coming out with the latest and greatest developments. One of the biggest pillow problems is that they get hot when you sleep, waking you up in a sweat and causing you to have to flip the pillow around to get to the cool side and get back to sleep. Another big complaint is that it doesn’t line up your neck and your spine causing kinks in your neck and a stiff neck.

The Claim
They claim, or hint at claiming, that this pillow can help with an assortment of ailments including neck pain, snoring, migraine headaches, sleep apnea, allergies and asthma, fibromyalgia, insomnia, and restless leg syndrome. That’s quite a feet for something that is just used on your head, and only for about 8 hours a day.

They do make it a point to explicitly state that the claims they are making are not scientifically proven, and based only on what people have said after using the pillow for awhile. In all of our research we have yet to find a company that outwardly states that their claims are based on user testimonials, and not scientific testing. What a breath of fresh air!

The Hype
This product is just on the verge of hitting the mainstream. It seems to be produced with a low budget, which can be refreshing compared to all those sleek as seen on TV infomercials and websites that are really good at separating your money from your wallet.

The Cost
For the Standard and Queen version the cost is $80 and the King size is $90. If you want to order multiple pillows the shipping cost is always a flat $10.

The Commitment
Simply replace your current pillow with a MyPillow and sleep as you normally would. It’s designed to be used by all sort of sleepers, no matter if you like sleeping on your back, side, or stomach.

Evaluation
The pillow is designed with 3 special tubes that keeps it cool, and it’s also designed to contort to your shape, so you won’t have to bunch it up, or flip it over to find the right spot, or to get to the cool side. It is pretty innovative, and you can tell that it’s not like an ordinary pillow.

This is the kind of purchase where won’t matter how many reviews you see, either positive or negative, you just have to give it a try in your own bed and see what sort of experience you have with it. With the 60 day guarantee in place you are only going to risk the $10 shipping charge, and that’s if you don’t like it. If you try it and like it $80 or $90 will seem like a very good investment towards proper sleep every night.

You have to take the time to choose the right size when you’re ordering, because that will make all the difference on whether or not you think that it works. They had a broken down between men, women, and children, as well as what size person is and how you like to sleep. This is perhaps the only company on the planet that has so many different sized pillows according to the size and shape of a person.

What People Are Saying
It’s hard to deny all of the positive feedback that is coming in for MyPillow. Few people have said that it hasn’t made any difference at all to the way they sleep. Perhaps the closest thing to a negative review is that the MyPillow is just okay, and not spectacular. We couldn’t find anyone that said they regretted their purchase and that product is just a lot of fluff.

Final MyPillow Review

MyPillow has done a lot of things right when it comes to devising a pillow that will satisfy the majority of users. By realizing that not everyone is the same size and shape, especially between the two sexes, they take a big step towards providing a personalized sleeping experience.

Our Recommendation
If you’re struggling to get a good night’s sleep, and don’t have a pillow that provides you comfort, you should definitely give the MyPillow a try. They are getting really good reviews from those that have used it, and have covered most of the issues that people have with conventional pillows.

Better then MyPillow

A more popular option is the Mediflow Waterbase Pillow. It has super reviews on Amazon and is cheaper. If you are wary of the MyPillow, go with the more trusted product (it has over 400 5 Star reviews on Amazon).

If you get this don’t judge it too quick. With any new pillow you have to give it a few days. Sometimes it’s best to give it a few days then wait and switch back to your usually pillow then a week later give MyPillow another few days to really settle into in and see if it works or if you feel a difference. People expect miracles but that’s not the case with pillows. Be patient and give it a good chance before you form an opinion. Time to catch some Zzzzzz… ;)

I’m waiting for delivery of my MyPillow order :)
My sister has one and swears it has improved her sleep, and loves it.
I’ve been having issues sleeping recently and have always had a problem with wanting to keep cool in bed so constantly flip the pillow to the cool side at the moment.
When i heard that MyPillow can stop me having to flip the pillow i was sold :)

I’ll have to check back in when i’ve had it and let you know how i get on.

The paper that comes with the pillows doesn’t fully explain how to position it for snoring. Says to”bunch and roll” behind your neck. What does that mean? NO pictures, etc. to show you how it should look. We tried to do that and it didn’t seem right. My husband STILL snores like a champ with this “miracle pillow” and I didn’t think it was comfortable at all. Will probably return for a refund. Pure hype.

Thank U for posting this amazing article and overview. I never heard of my pillow until today.

Looks very interesting. I get back pains and neck pains when I sleep and can never get comfortable.

I’ve tried many different pillows and no luck. Not sure if this one will do the trick but it worth a shot.
MyPillow sounds simple enough and promises the best sleep ever so will give it try and see.

I’ve used mine for under a year. It’s still very uncomfortable and causes me neck problems from time to time. I’m looking for something new since my last chiro visit. I woke up and couldn’t move my neck at all with sharp pains.

You can actually bunch it up to make it stiffer. Just squash it towards the end or middle of the pillow. But it’s very uncomfortable! The pillow tends to go very flat where you head lies, so you have to flip it pretty often. Also, I’ve never noticed since I bought mine, that it ever stayed cool. I still don’t get that.

Their bed cover, however, is fantastic. Only problem is that you can buy the same brand bed cover on other websites for about 60-80 bucks cheaper! It’s not actually their bed cover, it’s Thermoshield, it’s just sold as MyPillow brand.

You could try it, but I’d definitely take them up on the 60 day money back guarantee. Course, it took about 4 months before it got really uncomfortable and I started having problems.

If you really want to sleep good – invest in some buckwheat hull pillows. My wife convinced me to do this a few years ago and we’ve never looked back. They’re awesome. If you want to sleep like a baby, buckwheat all the way. We love the ones from HarvestPillows which we recommend. Seriously since we did the switch we’ve had no need to even consider an alternative.

had a buckwheat pillow for years-also had a sobakawa- they’re ok but the my pillow has them beat in every way–i bought mine at alco and the very first night found i had less back pain on arising–love the thing and will never buy another -very easy to bunch and it stays without fluffing around the face-one thing–you,re supposed to put it in the dryer- i didn,t so maybe that makes a difference

I bought My Pillow and have been using it for over a year. It really does hold its shape. The one negative is that it does not keep cool. I still have to flip the pillow over

I looks like an ordinary pillow with nothing particularly special to bring to the table. If all it does is hold it shape while still requiring it to be flipped over to keep cool doesn’t really set it apart too much from other pillows. William mentioned that they have poor customer service if you want a refund. So is it really worth it especially if it could potentially cause even more problems too? It looks like I’m better off with buckwheat pillow as LAJose described.
