I just want a nice pillow. Any advice?

I’m so sick of the fuckers. They’re all shite.
Fancy posh quilted one was like sleeping on a bag of rocks after 5 months. Super posh memory foam one was like sleeping on a slab of bread.
Dd has has informed me she hates her goose feather ones (as do l) so I’m sort of stuck in a shit pillowgate situation.
Please recommend me a nice comfy pillow that doesn’t lose its shape and cause the pillowcase to twist round it. Is this rocket science?😭

You have my sympathies and I love how you have expressed your frustrations. I took MN’s advice and bought the Dunlopillow and it is shite. I bought another recommended one and it was equally shite. The only good ones seem to be in expensive hotels, but I’m not given to nicking them. My search continues. Good luck. Pillows are such a subjective thing - one wo(man)’s cloud is another one’s slab of bread.

My last Dunelm one was a disaster, yes I squished it well in store . It was a perfect cloud for all of a few nights . Then it managed to turn simultaneously into a stodge that needs plumping up each night to such an extent that all the filling sort of ends up in the middle , but the second you lay on it…… back to pancake flat .

I have a bad back and joint pain so sleep is incredibly important to me and also difficult! Because I am a light sleeper my pillows are so important. I have two, and the top one is a copper pillow from Tesco which is so lovely and soft I would recommend that one certainly

This pillow Big Softie from the Secret Linen Store in medium firmness is fabulous but it's microfibre not feather. I couldn't commend it enough. Soft and lovely and keeps its shape well.
You can thank me later. I haven't tried the firm one so can't coment on that one

Simba hybrid pillow is great. I spent ages and a lot of money trying to find the right one
I second this! I've tried so many pillows, including the Tempur cloud one, but this one is perfect.
It has a core section made of pieces of memory foam, which you can remove or add to, to make it the perfect thickness.

Trouble is, those Premier Inn ones look quilted. And l had a quilted one that was great at first. Then it turned into a sack full of rocks as the quilting separated all the fluff out.
Di they keep they’re squidgeness?
They come with a quilted pillow protector but the actual pillow isn't quilted. After regularly buying and giving away many other pillows after a month or so we've held on to these for over a year and they're still comfortable.
