Some pillows are only available in one firmness setting, which can be limited for customers who fall outside that loft category.
The Layla Pillow is available in one firmness setting, ‘Medium Soft,’ which may be limiting for sleepers with different preferences.
Some pillows flatten out over time, and require constant fluffing in order to maintain a full, supportive shape.
The Layla Pillow requires regular fluffing to maintain a full shape, which is typical of shredded foam models.
Pillows that are highly moldable can be scrunched and squeezed into different positions, which is beneficial for sleepers who snuggle with pillows.
The Layla Pillow is exceptionally soft and moldable, and should be suitable for most sleepers who prefer to snuggle with a pillow.
Some pillows conform to the contours of the sleeper’s head and neck for optimal comfort and targeted pressure relief.
The Layla Pillow conforms quite closely, but may sink too much for some sleepers.
Pillows may sleep hot or cold, usually depending on both the air circulation in the interior and the composition of the cover.
Many shredded foam pillows trap a fair amount of heat, but the Layla Pillow sleeps cooler than most due in part to its copper-infused cover.
Off-gassing is to be expected from most pillows, but some produce stronger, longer-lasting odors that can disrupt sleep.
The Layla Pillow may emit some initial off-gassing odors, but these smells tend to dissipate in a matter of days.
Some pillows are significantly heavier than average, making it difficult for some sleepers to move and maneuver them in the night.
The Layla Pillow weighs roughly 4.5 to 5.8 pounds (depending on the selected size), making it fairly heavy and difficult for some sleepers to lift and adjust.
Ease of Cleaning
Depending on the material, pillows may be machine washable or require more intensive cleaning, such as hand washing, spot cleaning, or professional (dry) cleaning.
The Layla Pillow is fairly difficult to clean. The cover is not removable and should be spot cleaned only. Layla states the whole pillow may be machine washed and dried, but that doing so can void the product warranty.
