My search for the perfect pillow has continued over the past several months. Unfortunately for me, most do not work well for me but work perfectly for Hubby and Abby. Tends to be my luck lately. Oh well, I know they are sleeping better now thanks to more comfortable pillows.
I was thrilled when I was offered the opportunity to review a Savvy Rest Pillow, I had read quite a bit about these awesome pillows and was excited to give it a try. Maybe it would be the pillow for me!
I received the Standard-size Wool-Latex Pillow to review and from the minute I opened the box I was quite impressed with the pillow. It came with an information sheet that informed me the pillow arrived over stuffed so that I could customize it to my preference. I was able to remove some of the filling to make it more comfortable for me. The pillow if made with a blend of certified organic wool and shredded natural latex. The wool fiber promotes air circulation to prevent heat buildup and latex gives the pillow a responsive, luxurious feel. The pillow has an outer and inner casing which I found really nice, especially for cleaning. What’s really nice is that I can save the filling that I remove and use it for other projects, like a pillow for Abby. I simply made sure to put it all in a bag as I removed it, this made it really easy for when I removed too much and needed to add more back, and now it’s put away for when I make her a pillow. It took me a few attempts to get it just right, it was actually perfect as is to just rest against while reading in bed but was too full for sleep. I removed some, then a little more and ended up making it too flat in the middle. Finally I got the pillow just right and used it for several nights to really try it out. Unfortunately, thanks to this dreadful migraine that is determined to stick around, I never could really get comfortable. I finally decided that I couldn’t give the pillow a fair try so I passed it over to hubby to try out. I didn’t want my head hurting to get in the way of giving this great pillow an honest review.
I guess I should have passed the pillow over sooner, Hubby has slept better since using it! Of course, when I asked him how it was all he gave me was an “okay” “it’s good”, yeah he isn’t much help. I did notice that he wasn’t snoring as much since using the Savvy Rest Pillow nor was he folding it in half and bunching it up like he had with his old pillow. I did ask if I needed to adjust the filling level for him but he said it was good as is. I can tell he likes it and it is definitely a huge improvement on his snoring!
And of course Abby had to try it out! The case you see on the pillow in the pictures is actually the outer casing. There is an inner casing as well that keeps the filling in place (I should have taken a picture of the two but had a mommy moment and forgot). I love this because I’m able to remove the outer casing for washing. I also use a regular pillowcase on it as well, it’s not in the picture because it was laundry day. The outer casing is really nice for not only extra protection for the pillow but also it allows better cleaning in case of little accidents (tummy bug, nose bleed, etc).
For me, this pillow is extremely soft and comfortable, definitely one of the softest I have laid against in a long time. I loved it for laying in bed reading or just lounging around. I honestly feel like it would be an awesome sleep pillow, I just cannot fairly give my opinion on that because of my migraine. Right now, even my bed and most favorite pillows are uncomfortable to my aching head so I’m not able to know for sure about the Savvy Rest Pillow. As for my husband, this pillow is a huge hit and has definitely improved his snoring. Abby loves it so it’s a winner for her! The fact that it comes extra stuffed for customization is a huge plus, this allows me to get it just right for myself as well as change it up for my husband. A definite advantage over purchasing a regular pillow at the store. The Savvy Rest Pillow is going on my top list of pillows for sure!
