Pam and I talk ‘most every day via google hangout, and one morning last week when she asked what was new, I excitedly mentioned that I’d finally found a truly comfortable pillow — the best pillow I’ve ever experienced — and that I had been sleeping extraordinarily well for the two weeks since I’d started using it. To my surprise, she suggested I write it up for the blog — and invite readers to have a little ‘pillow talk’ session.
I’ll preface my pillow tale by saying this: Sleeping is one of my top favorite things to do — along with vintage shopping, working on my house, cooking then eating a great meal and spending time outside. I like to get a solid eight hours every night if possible, so if anything disrupts my ability to do that I make it a priority to rectify the situation as quickly as possible. Lately, I had been noticing that I was having a tough time getting comfortable. I had originally bought a memory foam pillow, but found it was too hard and made my neck feel stiff in the morning. I fell back on my old, 100% down pillow that I’d had since I was a teenager, but it wasn’t giving me the support that I needed and felt like not using a pillow at all.
The best pillow we found — source: The Company Store
So, I set out to search the best pillow for side sleepers that I could. After doing quite a bit of online research, I found these Primaloft® Deluxe Pillows at The Company Store. They had plenty of good customer reviews, along with a Good Housekeeping stamp of approval, and I managed to snag a few on sale. I bought one firm pillow and one medium pillow just in case the firm was too much. After sleeping on the firm pillow only one night I was hooked — the right pillow makes all of the difference in the world. My husband Jim claimed the medium firm pillow — listed as the choice for back sleepers. He’s a combination side and back sleeper himself and he too, has been sleeping quite well as of late.
Pam says she’s been on a quest for a new pillow recently, too. She also offers this shopping tip: To get the best deal, sign up for The Company Store’s newsletter via their website. Soon enough, they’ll present you with a deal that you will want to grab. Also, be sure to look closely on the website for special daily discount codes. These pillows are not cheap — up to $60 each. Ouch. But, we bet we can beat that if we wait for the right moment.
While finding the best sleeping pillow for you isn’t usually something we cover here, a well designed and lived in home should be comfortable — and having the right pillow can really help. Check out The Company Store’s guide to choosing the right pillow — it just might help you get a better night’s sleep.
