Quick Summary

MyPillow offers shredded polyfoam pillows. The company currently sells three pillow models that feature MyPillow’s patented interlocking fill.

The MyPillow Premium is currently the brand’s top-selling pillow. In addition to the patented interlocking fill, this pillow has a cover made of ring-spun cotton with gusseted sidewalls for a thicker, more supportive feel. The MyPillow Premium is available in four color-coded loft levels: Yellow (least fill), White (regular fill), Green (more fill), and Blue (most fill). During our product testing, we found that the most comfortable fill level depended on the sleeper’s weight and preferred position. We recommend the Yellow level for stomach sleepers, the White level for back sleepers, and the Green and Blue levels for side sleepers.

Additionally, MyPillow offers these other pillows:

  • The MyPillow Classic is the brand’s flagship model. It strongly resembles the MyPillow Premium, but is not as thick and does not feature the gusseted sidewalls. The pillow was briefly discontinued but is currently available from MyPillow.
  • The Giza Elegance MyPillow is a limited-run pillow with a gusseted sidewall and a cover made of 100% Giza-88 long-staple cotton. It is also available in four color-coded firmness levels: Yellow (least firm), Lavender (regular fill), Green (more fill), and Blue (firm).
  • The GoAnywhere Travel Pillow is a travel-size model measuring 12 inches wide and 18 inches long. It comes with the ‘Roll&Go’ travel case, and can be rolled into a more portable size for easier storage.

Please note: In 2016, MyPillow was fined for ‘deceptive advertising practices’ by nine county prosecutors in California. This was due to unsubstantiated claims from the company that MyPillow products could treat or cure insomnia and other sleep disorders, as well as other medical conditions. As part of this settlement, MyPillow has been banned from making such claims without first conducting a human trial.

We will update this table once we have sufficient data.

In conclusion, our testing team noted several advantages to the MyPillow Premium. We liked the enhanced support of the pillow’s gusseted sidewalls, particularly for side sleepers. Multiple firmness options allow most sleepers to find a suitable option regardless of their weight or sleep position.

The MyPillow Premium is also exceptionally light/easy to move and can be machine-washed for low-maintenance cleaning. However, our testers noticed some initial odor. Additionally, the pillow flattens easily – making it less moldable than many of its competitors – and durability is no better than average.

What Type of Sleeper is Best Suited to the MyPillow?

Based on our customer feedback, MyPillow Premium pillows received the following grades among sleepers of different weights, body types, and preferred sleep positions. We have not received enough owner feedback to generate ratings for the Giza Elegance MyPillow, the GoAnywhere Travel Pillow, or the current incarnation of the MyPillow Classic.

Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different pillows. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a pillow.

For more information on sleeping positions please see our pillow guides for side, back, and stomach sleepers.

Construction and Firmness

Now, let’s look at how the MyPillow is built. The table below lists firmness, thickness, and composition specs for the pillow.

Additionally, our testers evaluated each fill level for the MyPillow Premium. Their findings are as follows:

  • The Yellow level, which contains the lowest amount of fill, has a low-profile and softer feel that is optimal for lighter people and stomach sleepers.
  • The White level, which contains the second-lowest amount of fill, offers a ‘Medium’ feel that back sleepers found particularly comfortable and supportive.
  • The Green level, which contains the second-highest amount of fill, is considered ‘Medium Firm’ and was popular among side and back sleepers.
  • The Blue level, which contains the highest amount of fill, has a ‘Firm’ feel and a high-profile that is ideal for side sleepers and heavier individuals, as well as those with broader shoulders.

Please note that the GoAnywhere Pillow is available in one firmness: White/Lavender, which has a loft of roughly 4″ to 5″ depending on how much fill is used.

MyPillow adds that sleepers who are accustomed to down or feather pillows should take the results from the table and subtract one firmness level. For example, if the table says that ‘Blue’ firmness is most suitable, a sleeper coming from a down or feather pillow may be more comfortable on a ‘Green’ pillow.
