Nest Bedding Easy Breather Ratings

Category Criteria Easy Breather Pillow Rating What Easy Breather Pillow Users Say
Category

Durability

Criteria

Our testing has shown that most pillows should be replaced within a maximum of three years.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

The high calibur of materials and thoughtful construction of the pillow can be expected to last an average of two to three years, our experts predict.

Category

Firmness Options

Criteria

Many modern pillows feature adjustable lofts and firmness levels. Those that are not adjustable or do not feature multiple firmness options may estrange consumers with conflicting preferences.

Rating

Fair

What Buyers Say

Despite being adjustable, our testing has found the The Easy Breather to rank as a 5 or “Medium” level of firm regardless of its fill.  Some consumer reviewers prefer a softer pillow.

Category

Shape Retention

Criteria

Certain materials need to be “re-fluffed” during the night or throughout the week to retain their full shape.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

The Easy Breather Pillow is adjustable, so sleepers have the option to add filling to help the pillow maintain its shape. To refresh and redistribute the foam fillings within these pillows, it is recommended to tumble dry on ‘no heat’.

Category

Moldability

Criteria

Modable, scrunchable pillows are ideal for sleepers who enjoy cuddling with their pillow.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

Pillows stuffed with shredded memory foam or shredded latex tend to be scrunchable and moldable, and the Nest Easy Breather is no different.

Category

Conforming

Criteria

Conforming is a distinctive characteristic of memory foam pillows, as well as shredded memory foam and latex. Essentially, the pillow molds to the shape of the sleeper’s head, neck, and shoulders to provide optimal pressure relief and support.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

Designed from shredded memory foam, the Nest Easy Breather is among the most conforming on the market, Tuck testing indicates.

Category

Temperature Neutrality

Criteria

The ability of a pillow to regulate temperature depends on the material of the pillow fill and cover. In other words, a pillow’s construction can have a major effect on whether you sleep hot or cold at night.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

With its Tencel-blended fabric case, the Nest Easy Breather sleeps cooler than other shredded memory foam pillows we’ve tested.

Category

Odor Potential

Criteria

Particularly with memory foam, an initial odor known as “off gassing” may be released when the pillow is first opened. Typically, off gassing disappears within a day or two.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

Compared to the Nest Easy Breather Natural, we have found that the Nest Easy Breather comes with a stronger off-gassing odor. According to many consumers, the odor disappears within days.

Category

Weight

Criteria

A heavy pillow may sound like an oxymoron, but certain models are heavier than others and thus more difficult to move during the night.

Rating

Good

What Buyers Say

According to our testing and consumer data, the Nest Easy Breather is reasonably light and easy to maneuver.

Category

Ease of Cleaning

Criteria

While some pillows are designed to be machine-washable, others are spot- or dry-clean only.

Rating

Fair

What Buyers Say

Though the Nest Bedding Easy Breather Pillow can be re-fluffed in a traditional dryer, they cannot be washed in a machine. Instead, Nest Pillows are spot-clean only.

Category

Durability

Criteria

Our testing has shown that most pillows should be replaced within a maximum of three years.

Rating

Excellent

What Buyers Say

Latex is a highly durable material, and thus our editors expect that the Easy Breather Natural should last three years or more with proper care.

Category

Firmness Options

Criteria

Many modern pillows feature adjustable lofts and firmness levels. Those that are not adjustable or do not feature multiple firmness options may estrange consumers with conflicting preferences.

Rating

Fair

What Buyers Say

Even as an adjustable pillow, our testing has found the Nest Easy Breather remains a 6 or “Medium Firm” regardless whether you remove or add filling.

Category

Shape Retention

Criteria

Certain materials need to be “re-fluffed” during the night or throughout the week to retain their full shape.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

Just like the Easy Breather Pillow, the Nest Easy Breather Natural can be refreshed in shape by adding filling or tumble-drying on ‘no heat’.

Category

Moldability

Criteria

Modable, scrunchable pillows are ideal for sleepers who enjoy cuddling with their pillow.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

Like the Easy Breather, the Easy Breather Natural is exceptionally moldable.

Category

Conforming

Criteria

Conforming is a distinctive characteristic of memory foam pillows, as well as shredded memory foam and latex. Essentially, the pillow molds to the shape of the sleeper’s head, neck, and shoulders to provide optimal pressure relief and support.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

As a shredded latex foam pillow, Tuck testing found the Easy Breather Natural to offer superior conforming. Consumer reviews agree the pillow is able to relieve pressure and neck pain.

Category

Temperature Neutrality

Criteria

The ability of a pillow to regulate temperature depends on the material of the pillow fill and cover. In other words, a pillow’s construction can have a major effect on whether you sleep hot or cold at night.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

The Easy Breather Natural features a breathable natural cotton fabric case that promotes cooling. In addition, its Oeko-Tex Certified latex fill is naturally breathable and cooling.

Category

Odor Potential

Criteria

Particularly with memory foam, an initial odor known as “off gassing” may be released when the pillow is first opened. Typically, off gassing disappears within a day or two.

Rating

Very Good

What Buyers Say

According to our testing processes, the Easy Breather Natural produces less initial off-gassing odors because of its natural latex makeup. Few consumers complain of initial off gassing with the Easy Breather Natural.

Category

Weight

Criteria

A heavy pillow may sound like an oxymoron, but certain models are heavier than others and thus more difficult to move during the night.

Rating

Fair

What Buyers Say

Because latex is a heavier material than memory foam, our editors determined the Easy Breather Natural to be slightly heavier and more difficult to maneuver than the Easy Breather standard.

Category

Ease of Cleaning

Criteria

While some pillows are designed to be machine-washable, others are spot- or dry-clean only.

Rating

Fair

What Buyers Say

Like other Nest Pillows, the Easy Breather Natural may be re-fluffed in the dryer but not machine-washed. Instead, the pillow is spot-clean only.

Pulling from our own testing and user reviews, the Nest Easy Breather ranks as one of the highest grades of shredded memory foam currently available.  The pillow shines with its superior contouring and pressure-relieving abilities, in addition to its scrunchability and durability.

Key drawbacks include the difficulty cleaning the pillows, in addition to the limited firmness options.

Our testing shows that the Easy Breather Natural boasts exceptional contouring, pressure-relief, and moldability compared to other similarly priced pillows on the market. Its Oeko Tex-certified latex interior is not only naturally cooling, but durable and free of fire-retardant chemicals.

Consumers laud the pillow for its pressure- and neck pain relieving abilities. Its adjustable loft is also appreciated among customer reviews.
