We have some latex pillows that weren't cheap but I think we need to replace. What's been/is the best pillow you've ever owned?! Time for some pillow talk

Oooohhh I would love some pillow talk, I get neck ache and middle of the night rage because our pillows are so uncomfortable, but every time I started looking to buy more I'm overwhelmed by choice! So many, everywhere! A friend bought some from John Lewis, £45 each (!) but he says it's the best thing ever.... also, what are latex pillows?

I used to buy expensive pillows but find the side sleeper one from Argos is the only one I find comfortable that really reduces neck pain. They are about £10 and I replace after about 9 months. It is horses for courses but for me this one is far better than the expensive goose feather ones I used to use.

I have a tempurpedic pillow. Not cheap but amazing! Worth every single penny.

I have a tempur original. It's incredible. It was more than I'd have spent but was given it. If I lost it, I'd by another.

I've been known to take it with me when I travel for work.

I've noticed that I used to be a pillow-cuddler with an arm underneath and an arm on top, lying on my side. With this I lay much more still and in a more natural position.

After a year it's the same condition.

I have a tempur one (not sure of the style/range though I'm afraid) and I love it! way way way more than I've ever spent on 2 pillows before. In fact, I think I'd get more money for my pillows than if I sold my kidney on the black market but it's worth every penny!

I've always loved dunlopillows

Tempur here as well. Lifechanging.

I wanted a Tempur mattress topper too but couldn't justify the price, so I bought a cheap memory foam one from Amazon and it's heavenly. (I know you didn't ask about mattress toppers but I am evangelical about them!!)

I will look into tempur. Latex pillows are exactly that - pillows made out of latex. They have a cover on them. I don't know the brand of ours but they weren't cheap. Around £60-£70 a pillow. I'll will look into the tempur ones.

Soak and Sleep. Their Microfibre pillows are wonderful, as is the full body pillow... bliss!

I have nothing useful to add but wow! Some people change their pillows every 9 months. Our newest ones are from our wedding list. Over a decade blush

Thanks to another thread I have a Baavet wool pillow and I love it. Thanks to the same thread I also have a buckwheat pillow which is horrific, like sleeping on a bag of cat litter.

I never used to change my pillows until I looked closely one day when I was changing the bed. The saliva stains were like a map of the goddamn Galapagos Islands. Grim! Pillow-covers under the pillow case can solve this, though. Tempur pillows have them.

Dunelm memory foam ones. The thick fleecy covered one. It's lovely.

Greta84 Sun 05-Feb-17 09:51:59

Oh didn't think to look at Dunelm thanks

I bought luxury feather ones of John Lewis £45 each 6 months ago. I don't know what I've done wrong but they are crap now. Flat within about 2 minutes of getting in to bed, even if I've left them airing and "standing up" all day. Don't get them!

(Any tips on reviving a feather pillow anyone?)

Haven't tried one of these water pillows, however they get amazing reviews.

KatyBerry Sun 05-Feb-17 10:40:37

Feather pillows apparently tumble to re fluff, and the heat kills mites in them. Must do it.. on today's list now

I have one goose down pillow and the difference in quality between that and feather is astonishing- it's far fluffier and more supportive- I love it but would need to remortgage to replace all pillows with down (and of course it's appallingly cruel)

I spent a small fortune on my John Lewis Hungarian goose down pillow. The best thing I ever did. It squishy and light and I miss it so much when we're away. One of the best buys ever for me.

I'm on my third water pillow (the one linked above). Love it and I wont sleep on anything else - it goes everywhere with me. Think its the only pillow which has been shown to reduce neck pain.

Tempur one. Called the Cloud or something. Was around £90 and worth EVERY PENNY! It's heavenly

Madbengalmum Sun 05-Feb-17 10:59:33

Tried the top of the range Tempur and hated it. I cant stand the thought of what sleeping surrounded by the toxic vapours given off by latex products.

The best pillows and duvets you can buy bar none are made of the best down, the brand is Brinkhaus, they are something else and all natural too. Expensive, but last forever, and they wash beautifully.

I bought some latex dunlopillo ones direct from website, but they were too plump for me. My fault as I chose the deepest one they did and should have gone slimmer.

In the meantime I found a company called latexsense who did cheaper 100% latex pillows so I got them in the slim version.

All latex pillows smell at first so I opened them and put them in the spare room for a week and then they were fine.

Im a back and side sleeper and they are great because they dont need plumping, they're the same consistancy on the edges as in the middle, unlike feather pillows and if you move position they spring back much quicker than memory foam.

I love mine and plan to only use this type of pillow from now on.

Dunlipillo that's what we have

A bamboo fibre pillow has almost changed my life! It is firm but it keeps cool and is so supportive I never wake up with neck/ back ache now. I take it every where I go.
