The Pillows I Recommend All the Time

Are you the kind of person who brings your pillow with them when travel? Hi, I’m Janet and I’m a pillow snob. But I wasn’t always. For years I spent around $40 for a pillow that I bought at Target or Walmart.

They’d go flat and I’d be frustrated and buy another brand hoping to find the best one. It never worked. They were garbage. Even when I splurged and bought a better pillow, they wouldn’t stand the test of time.

Well I finally found pillows I love and bring with me on trips or vacations. Otherwise I take the chance that the hotel pillows will be small or cheaply made.

These are more expensive pillows but they last for years (at least 2 years already and still showing no sign of flattening or wearing out). Plus they’re so comfortable. I gave my mom the Brooklyn Bedding pillow and she loves it so much she takes it on vacations!

Each of these is priced reasonably – under $100 and worth every cent. Now my pillows last for years.

Top 3 Favorite Pillows I Recommend

Brooklyn Bedding Shredded Memory Foam Pillow link not working

The Brooklyn Bedding is our top pick based on the value. We get king size but it comes in queen too. I made friends with the manager at a Brooklyn Bedding store and told him my pillow woes. He insisted theirs was the best. I didn’t buy it. But since he gave me one to try I had nothing to lose.

Well since then I not only LOVE this pillow but I’ve purchased several more. Each time a pillow gets worn out I replace it with a Brooklyn Bedding. This pillow is huggable but more substantial (the heaviest of the three).

It comes quite stuffed but does have a zipper so you can make it the perfect loft for you. We haven’t removed any of the memory foam.

SIZES: Standard, queen and king

PROS: The memory foam is in a sharp cut and the pillow has special webbing to hold the pieces together so it won’t bunch up, clump or go flat. Incredibly comfortable. Costs $44 for a queen, which is very reasonable and less than our other selections.

CONS: The gray pattern shows through a white pillow case but not if you have a pillow protector (plus gray doesn’t show stains as much as white).

Pacific Coast DownAround Pillow – Soft

This pillow is my other favorite, it’s a synthetic feather that’s so soft and dreamy. After sleeping on one of their pillows at a hotel, I wanted to know the brand. So I removed the pillow protector and pillow cases to take a look at the tag. It was Pacific Coast. Then I contacted the company to see exactly which one it was. This is the closest.

This is a lightweight feather type of pillow without the allergies, from a trusted brand that’s been making feather pillows since the 1800s. Your grandma may have had one! And years in, it’s still amazing! This is the pillow I reach for when I want to cuddle or mold it.

Pacific Coast pillow

SIZES: Standard, queen and king

PROS: You’ll find this pillow dreamy and lighter yet substantial. No allergies or poky feathers. Yet it feels like feathers and it’s super durable.

CONS: It’s tough to find any drawbacks.

Nolah Airfiber Pillow

This one hasn’t been around as long but it’s the softest, airiest pillow on this list. It is like a cloud. Soft. Molds to your head yet supports it. Maybe you haven’t heard of Nolah, but we’re a big fan. The pillows exceeded our expectations.

SIZES: Queen

PROS: So light, fluffy and dreamy. Squishy.

CONS: Only comes in queen size only – no king or standard.

Next up I want to try the Purple Harmony Pillow.
