This Insanely Comfortable Cooling Pillow Gave Me the Best Sleep of My Life
It’s being called “the greatest pillow ever invented.”
Everyone knows the best night’s sleep starts with a comfortable bed, which is why it’s so important to top it with cozy items that will help you catch some much-needed Zs. Hopefully you’ve already found a super soft pair of sheets, a plush mattress pad, and a fluffy blanket to curl up in, but if you are still searching for the perfect pillow, let me introduce you to Purple’s Harmony Pillow.
I was lucky enough to test one last month, and I quite literally had some of the best sleep of my life while using it. Made from the brand’s patented Purple Grid Hex—a structure of hexagon-shaped air channels—the pillow offers no-pressure support that uniquely molds to cradle your head and neck. I’ll admit when I first saw and felt the latex honeycomb structure of the pillow, I didn't think I would enjoy sleeping on it, but I was quickly proven wrong as soon as I laid down.
Not only was the pillow incredibly supportive, but it was also much more comfortable than the down and memory foam pillows I usually sleep with. While I loved that the pillow’s latex core is hypoallergenic and its soft mesh cover is breathable and moisture-wicking, my favorite part of the pillow has to be how cool it stayed throughout the night.
As someone who overheats as I sleep, I often find myself waking up in the middle of the night to flip my pillow to the cooler side. But when I slept on this, I never once had to switch sides thanks to that Grid Hex technology, which boasts 1,500 open-air channels that help promote continuous airflow throughout the pillow.
And don’t just take it from me! Even though the Purple Harmony Pillow just launched earlier this month, it has already racked up an impressive 4.5-star rating with nearly 100 reviews from happy customers. “Have had zero neck or back problems since using this pillow. It gives you everything you need to get a restful night's sleep,” said one reviewer.
“It provides support and luxurious comfort all at once,” wrote another. “Before, I had up to four pillows on my bed at a time. Now I just use this one pillow. This is definitely the greatest pillow I have ever been fortunate enough to use.”
The pillow comes in two sizes: regular, which is recommended for back, side, and stomach sleepers with smaller frames; and tall, which is recommended for side sleepers with larger frames or anyone who generally likes to sleep with a higher pillow.
At $159 each, it’s an investment piece, but since the Purple pillow is designed to stay fluffy and not flatten out over time, it will last longer than the average pillow. Plus, the fact that it gave me my best night’s sleep ever makes the price worth it, in my opinion.
