We spend a lot of time with our pillow and for me, a bad pillow pretty much guarantees a bad night’s sleep. I carry a lot of stress in my neck and back and I’ve found my pillow needs have changed over the years. I used to love a memory foam pillow that was molded to be higher where your neck needs to be supported and lower where the head sits but now I find it aggravates my headaches. I’ve also tried a down pillow but those don’t offer enough support for my neck. Hence, it was time to try something new.
My body has always been sensitive but since my Crohn’s diagnosis, my body is extra sensitive. For this reason I lean towards organic products and I was close to purchasing an organic buckwheat pillow. After reading lots of reviews, I came to the conclusion that I’d be giving up comfort which didn’t seem to fit my mission of a better night’s sleep. The Coop adjustable pillow was coming up everywhere so I figured I’d check it out. It is hypoallergenic option that markets itself as the best of soft and supportive. While all that sounds nice, what sold me was the adjustability. You can remove filling or add filling for a “Goldilocks and The Three Bears” type experience. The 17K+ reviews with a 4.3 star rating on Amazon didn’t hurt either. At a price tag of $64.99 for the king size version, while not cheap, Coop offers a 100 night guarantee which I hoped I wouldn’t have to test.
Will I keep using it?
Yes! While I can’t say it revolutionized my sleep, I do like it. Taking author James Clear, 1% better tactic, it definitely did improve my sleep by at least 1%. The only aspect that I can’t comment on is the longevity of the material. As I’ve only used the product for 2 weeks, I’m not sure how it will feel a year or two down the road.
