This week, we reveal two of the most snugglesome pillows we have had the fortune to test - the Casper Pillow and the OTTY Deluxe Pillow. They’re both premium pillows with a corresponding price tag but if you truly value a decent night’s sleep (and let’s face it, who doesn’t) then if your sleep quality is affected by not-quite-right pillows, then it may be time to look at making an investment.
First of all, we look at the Casper Pillow. Casper has created a unique pillow-in-pillow design; the inner pillow is supportive, while the outer pillow adds a soft touch of fluff. The inner pillow is filled with nearly a billion coated fibres, creating an adaptive, liquid-like feel that responds to your movements through the night. The outer pillow features longer fibres to give it a plush, cushioning finish. Each fibre cluster is individually blown into the cover.
The process makes the pillow resistant to clumping, meaning it can bounce back to life with just a quick fluff. The gusset is the backbone of our pillow’s construction. It fortifies the pillow’s shape and evenly distributes the fill, creating a consistent loft. It also provides neck support and better spine alignment. This was a bit of a revelation.... A new take on the common pillow that promises to offer the best of both worlds in providing both support and comfiness. The 100% cotton cover features a breathable percale weave. When paired with the silky fibres inside, the cover increases airflow, so you’re always sleeping on the cool side of the pillow.
We liked this pillow and it looks smart too - not that a pillow needs to look smart, but it does anyway, so there’s the added bonus!
£60.00 for a standard pillow and £75.00 for a super king. Available from https://casper.com.
The OTTY Deluxe Pillow is also a design revelation. The OTTY Deluxe Pillow is the perfect combination of supportive memory foam and cooling blue gel, which is OTTY's unique temperature regulating material, helping you to remain cool at night, resulting in a great night's sleep. This arguably one of the best pillows available for side sleepers or back sleepers based on the density of the memory foam. It was comfortable to sleep on and would be perfect for most sleepers.
The cover of the OTTY pillow is made of a fully breathable material and it’s also hypoallergenic. You can remove the cover and wash it at 40 degrees. To do this, all you need to do is is unzip it and remove the pillow from the cover.
The Otty Deluxe pillows are priced at £54.99 each and available from www.otty.com.
