Best Tempurpedic Pillow [Review] in 2020

Last Updated on

Tempurpedic is the number one name when it comes to memory foam, when their mattresses came on the market a few years ago they were innovative, clever, and considered to be a revolution in an industry that has relied on spring technology for hundreds of years. Memory foam pillows come in two types – shredded and one piece. Shredded pillows tend to be more expensive but will last longer and are more moldable than one piece. The one-piece design is often quite lofty which can be uncomfortable for stomach sleepers too. The biggest issue most new users find with memory foam pillows is that there is quite a bad off-gassing from them initially and this can cause a lot of irritation and symptoms in the first few nights of use. The reason so many choices these pillows is that they are great for people with allergies can be machine washed, and generally provide better support than conventional pillows. If you’re looking to try one to improve your sleep check out these Tempurpedic Pillow Reviews and see which one is the best.

Best Tempurpedic Pillow Reviews

1.

Symphony Pillow

Our Choice Item

A soft and plushy pillow that is double-sided. One side has a slight arch to it for additional support if you’re a back sleeper while the other side is more traditional for side sleepers. Both are designed to relieve pressure on the neck and spine. This is one of the softer pillows the company offers and is an allergen and mite resistant as well as being machine washable. It has a zip-off cover and is made of 100% visco-elastic polyurethane foam that is made in the USA. The cover is cotton, elastane, and polyester mix. It comes in several sizes, though this is the standard. It’s about a medium firmness that conforms to your head and neck without going flat. It has a weightiness that standard pillows don’t and also comes in queen size.

2.

Essential Support Pillow

Top Quality Item

One of the lightest and cheapest of the Tempur pillows this is also somewhat hard but it’s thinner than the Symphony. It’s firm but not enough to make your face feel smushed if you’re a front sleeper. It’s quite a soft pillow but it holds it’s shaped well so you won’t have to push it into shape and it provides a lot of support despite being thin. This is great if you don’t like a pillow with a lot of lofts to it. This is better for back sleepers because of this and side sleepers may find it’s too flat to be comfortable and puts their neck at a bad angle.

The Neck Pillow

Best Value Item

This is actually one of the most expensive Tempur pillows despite having been around the longest. It’s designed with a special ergonomic shape to help align the spine and relax the shoulders. It’s designed for back sleepers and is contoured solid foam. The design is mite and allergen resistant and it has a removable, washable cover. It’s very supportive of the neck and head and perfect for anyone who suffers from persistent neck pain. Because of the design, it’s really not suited for those who sleep in any position other than on their back and it does take some getting used to.

4.

Cloud Soft and Conforming Queen Pillow

A larger size pillow that’s available in King and Queen size. It’s solid foam and has a quilted cotton cover. The pillow has quite a high loft that won’t flatten with use. It’s designed like a standard pillow so you can sleep on it any way that is comfortable. It’s rather pricey but still cheaper than a down pillow. The high loft is better for those who prefer to sleep with their heads slightly raised which may affect those with neck problems even though your head remains in a neutral position.

5.

TravelSnugs NeckSnug

This is the basic, essential Tempur pillow. It’s got a similar design to the neck pillow but is significantly larger. It has the dual lobe design that cups the head and neck which relaxes the shoulders while supporting the head. It’s ideal for back and side sleepers but not for stomach sleepers. This is designed to promote an anatomically correct spine posture for those who prefer (or because of their anatomy) want a slightly higher pillow. This is ideal for shoulder sleepers because of the higher loft and it’s solid enough that you won’t get a lot of compression to it. This is the pillow to choose if you’ve checked out the Side Pillow from Tempur and don’t feel it’s high enough for you as it’s more of solid support rather than medium support.

  •  High Loft 20”x14”x4.75”
  • 3lb Dual Lobe shape
  • Shredded
  • Mite and Allergen Resistant
  • Removable/washable cover

Conclusion

Tempurpedic pillows are in a league of their own. They are the original foam pillows and while they now have plenty of different designs the concept has stayed the same – to provide great head and neck support. The best Tempurpedic pillow is going to be one that supports your head and neck based on your sleeping pattern. For back sleepers, the Neck Pillow is ideal and will provide plenty of support. For side sleepers, something like the High Profile pillow is probably better because it allows room for the shoulders. Most Tempur pillows are not suited for stomach sleepers because of the shape, however, the Cloud pillow is soft enough to allow your head to settle in and work.
