Top 5 Pillows of 2021 – A Buyer’s Guide

Don't buy a pillow until you read this!

Choosing the right bedding & getting a good night's sleep relies on three key points: Comfort, Temperature control & Value for money.

Most people are likely sleeping on cotton or polyester pillows which are a popular choice because of the price or lack of knowledge. We investigate some of the top bedding companies on the market in 2021 and find out how they're changing the sleep industry!

Adjustable Bamboo pillows are a relatively new product that has started gaining popularity this year because of their superior benefits. The majority of Bamboo pillows come with hefty price tags because of their quality, however, we discovered the company 'Cosy House Collection' that have been creating waves on social media and in the news with their high-quality Bamboo Pillows that come with a ridiculously low price tag!

Doctors say that we get the deepest, healthiest sleep when our bodies are cool, comfortable, and able to breathe. There's nothing worse than a pillow that retains heat and moisture which makes you hot. (Ahem: Night-sweats anyone?)

Finally – you’ll want some pillows which are Hypoallergenic & Anti-bacterial. We've found that cotton isn’t very good at being either of these things & tends to hold pollen, allergens & bacteria until it’s washed! Unless your bedding is being washed daily, you’re likely suffering (from allergens) while you sleep and you just don’t know it.

It can be difficult to know which are the best pillows on the market. That's why Great Life Tips has compiled months of research about this emerging category. We’ll show you what to look for and what to avoid when picking your perfect pillows, and how it can help transform your sleep.

Benefits of extra sleep & rest:

Helps you maintain weight

  • Better energy control
  • Maintain correct hormone levels

Cognitive Health

  • Boosts Memory
  • Enhances Processing Speed

Cardiovascular Health

  • Aids Cardiovascular Function
  • Helps Maintain Normal Blood Flow

Stronger immune system

  • Bolsters Immune System
  • Helps to fight off illness &  infection

What You Need In The Perfect Pillow

Taking all of the healthful attributes listed above into consideration, we've boiled down a list of four key characteristics you should always look for in a great pillow for sleeping. Try to seek out all of these qualities:

Temperature Regulation

The problem with most pillows on the market is they are not very versatile in regards to temperature regulation & temperature changes that come with the seasons.

Polyester pillows can work great for winter months, but they'll leave you overheated and sweaty the rest of the year.

The top cotton pillows can be breathable and cooling in the summer months, but won't help to regulate temperatures the rest of the year when you need them to.

Bamboo pillows are naturally temperature-regulating and wick away moisture allowing you to stay cool and dry year-round.

Adjustable Support

The best pillows include an adjustable support, where traditionally pillows have been designed as a one size fits all method that just doesn't work well for everyone. Depending on your sleep style and position a pillow with a higher or lower loft (the height/thickness) may suit you much better. The ability to adjust the over all loft results in a much higher comfort and less waking up with a stiff or sore neck in the morning.

Softness & Comfort

The best pillows are silky soft,  even softer than Egyptian cotton while offering a heap of additional features. Scientifically-backed, Bamboo pillows are more effective at moisture wicking, keeping you cool and dry through out the night. The CertiPUR-US Memory foam is perfect for cradeling your head to sleep.

Hypoallergenic & Anti-Bacterial

Allergens such as dust mites and mold can thrive when paired with pillows that allow them to thrive causing endless nights of tossing and turning from symptoms like itchy throat, runny nose, and watery eyes. Luckily, bamboo pillows are hypoallergenic, breathable, and antimicrobial. It is the combination of these features, working together, that raises their individual benefits exponentially.

Traditional fabrics are a breeding ground for bacteria causing bad odors, stains, and even acne. Bamboo naturally has antibacterial properties. The combined benefits of bamboo allow your pillows to stay fresher, for longer (we found about 2x as long compared to traditional cotton pillows)

What To Avoid when buying Pillows

Pricey Pillows That Can't Adjust

The highest price pillow is always the best right? Actually, no (We were shocked to discover this too!) So many traditional style pillows for sleeping or made with using old outdated methods with the assumption that 'one size fits all'. It's actually best to consider a pillow that adjustable to you to avoid any strain on your neck or spine.

Traditional pillows also often use cotton pillow covers that absorb moisture causing acne

Chemicals

Many pillows are finished with chemicals that are harmful to your skin & body. Companies process their pillows with chemical finishes to stop shrinking, wrinkling, and pilling in the wash.  It's incredibly important to look for CertiPUR-US certifications when buying pillows.

Consumers often think they're safe with Cotton pillows, however, because the way they're grown cotton is often sprayed with chemicals & pesticides that carry over into the final product. This is a recipe for disaster when you're sleeping on these pillows for 7-8 hours a day.

The best way to ensure your pillows are free of chemicals and/or harmful substances is to buy from one of the reputable brands carrying a CertiPUR-US Certification. CertiPUR-US certifies that the product has been tested for harmful substances and that they are, therefore, harmless for human health and safe to use.

The Bottom Line

Coop's Pillow offers adjustable memory foam like the Cosy House Collection pillow we tested, however, the foam seems to clump up a bit easier.

Coop also does have a variety of pillows choose from, but value wise we didn't see enough of a difference in actual performance to make it worth the higher price tag

The Bottom Line

The Foam Pillow for Sleeping by Casper features CertiPUR-US Memory foam, however it is not adjsutable.

While the pillow does offer decent support for some, the 2" loft can leave much to be desired for many sleepers.

Some reviewers also state they have had issues with firmness, waking up itchy and the price. While it's still a decent pillow, if you're looking for the best pillow for your money we recommend skipping this one.

The Bottom Line

Purple's Adjustable pillow can be pretty comfy, however, the adjustable boosters don't work as well as we hoped. While it is easier to deal with then foam, it just doesn't give you the same amount of customization you get with the Cosy House & Coop pillow to get the perfect fit.

The Bottom Line

Snuggle-Pedics Bed Foam Pillow features a adjustable memory foam that seems like it's made of factory excess from creating other products and not as good of a quality foam as the others, however it is still CertiPUR-US Certified.

As of writing the King Pillow is currently $70. Not a very good value overall when compared to the others, and while a decent performer, this would be our last pick.
