Quick Overview

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.

  • Inexpensive shipping costs
  • Sleeps fairly cool
  • Lightweight and machine washable
Cons
  • Odor potential
  • Flattens easily
  • Questionable marketing claims
  • F rating from Better Business Bureau

Recommendations

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.

MyPillow Premium Side Good Very Good Good
Back Very Good Very Good Good
Stomach Fair Fair Poor

Category Criteria MyPillow Rating What MyPillow Users Say
Category

Durability

Criteria

The average pillow will begin to deteriorate after two to three years of use.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

Owner reviews indicate that the MyPillow Premium will perform for at least two years if it is regularly plumped in a conventional dryer.

Category

Firmness Options

Criteria

Some pillows are only available in one firmness setting, which can be limiting for customers who fall outside that loft category.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

The MyPillow Premium is available in four different firmness options, ranging from ‘Least Firm’ to ‘Firm.’

Category

Shape Retention

Criteria

Some pillows flatten out over time, and require constant fluffing in order to maintain a full, supportive shape.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

The MyPillow Premium requires routine plumping on order to prevent flattening, but most owners are happy with the overall shape.

Category

Moldability

Criteria

Pillows that are highly moldable can be scrunched and squeezed into different positions, which is beneficial for sleepers who snuggle with pillows.

Rating

Fair

What Buyers Say

The MyPillow Premium is fairly moldable, but excessive scrunching will cause it to flatten out and plumping will be required to restore its full shape.

Category

Conforming

Criteria

Some pillows conform to the contours of the sleeper’s head and neck for optimal comfort and targeted pressure relief.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

Like other pillows made of shredded polyfoam, the MyPillow Premium conforms to a noticeable extent but pressure relief is somewhat questionable.

Category

Temperature Neutrality

Criteria

Pillows may sleep hot or cold, usually depending on both the air circulation in the interior and the composition of the cover.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

Air circulation is above-average for the MyPillow Premium, due to its interlocking fill, and the cotton cover sleeps cool for most people.

Category

Odor Potential

Criteria

Off-gassing is to be expected from most pillows, but some produce stronger, longer-lasting odors that can disrupt sleep.

Rating

Fair

What Buyers Say

Odor potential is somewhat high for the MyPillow Premium, especially when it comes out of the dryer.

Category

Weight

Criteria

Some pillows are significantly heavier than average, making it difficult for some sleepers to move and maneuver them in the night.

Rating

Excellent

What Buyers Say

The MyPillow Premium weighs less than two pounds, and should not present difficulty for most sleepers.

Category

Ease of Cleaning

Criteria

Depending on the material, pillows may be machine washable or require more intensive cleaning, such as hand washing, spot cleaning, or professional (dry) cleaning.

Rating

Excellent

What Buyers Say

The MyPillow Premium is completely machine washable, and designed for use in most conventional dryers.

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 You Need to Know About MyPillow

Product Construction and Firmness

The MyPillow Premium, MyPillow Classic, and Giza Elegance MyPillow come in four firmness levels: ‘Yellow,’ ‘White’ (Premium/Classic) or ‘Lavender’ (Giza), ‘Green,’ and ‘Blue.’ Each color has 30% more fill than the previous color, and the pillows will expand to higher loft levels after they have been plumped in a conventional dryer.

Firmness Options: MyPillow offers four firmness options for the MyPillow Premium and Giza Elegance MyPillow, and refers customers to the following chart when selecting a firmness for their pillow. Please note this chart is based on T-shirt sizing. Each ‘color’ represents 30% more fill than the previous color; as a result, loft measurement ranges will vary from color to color.

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.

Package Deals: MyPillow offers two package deals.

  • The ‘2-Pack’ includes two Standard/Queen MyPillow Premium models of any loft for a price of $79.98.
  • The ‘4-Pack’ includes two MyPillow Premium models and two GoAnywhere Travel Pillows. A 4-Pack with Standard/Queen MyPillow Premium models is sold for $99.98, and a 4-Pack with King MyPillow Premium Models is sold for $109.98.
