I find it very difficult to find a pillow I really find comfortable. I seem to toss and turn a lot in my sleep sometimes, and I’m constantly turning my pillow over to get comfortable. I do sleep on my side mostly, and I never seem to find a pillow with enough neck support. I currently have a memory foam pillow which I’ve really liked, but lately seems to be losing it’s memory, so to speak. So it’s not as comfy as it once was. But, it is about 3 years old now, so I guess it’s to be expected.
When I heard about the IntelliPillow from IntelliBed, I did some reading up on it. They make three styles of IntelliPillows. Two are for side sleepers (like me) – one that is regular profile, and one that is low profile, and they also make one for back sleepers.
I chose the side sleeper pillow in the regular profile.
The pillow was much denser and heavier than I expected, which was a good thing! I do not like thin, light, airy pillows.
I unzipped the pillow to see what was inside. First, there’s a full layer of a waffle-like gel layer on both sides. It’s squishy to touch, but feels very comfortable when you lay your head on the cotton cover. There’s a very supportive foam core in the center, and in-between the foam core, there is the air chamber that you can pump up.
Pull out this little hand-pumpable air chamber, and you can pump up the pillow so it’s at your comfort level. It can be pumped up to about 2″ max. If you over inflate it, there’s a little release valve on the other side that you can press to release some of the air.
My first night using this pillow, I only inflated it a few pumps to see how it was. I slept good, but my second night I pumped it up quite a bit more. Then in the middle of the night I realized I had put just a little too much air in it, so I deflated it just a bit until it was perfect. That’s one thing I love about this pillow, you can adjust it to your own comfort level.
I’ve been using this pillow every night now, and I have to say I love it! It’s extremely comfy, and I now have it set to the perfect setting for me, so I can sleep soundly every night!
