The Luxury Leesa Pillow

It was only a matter of time until the luxury mattress brand Leesa developed a pillow to accompany their award winning premium foam mattress.  After many years of development and hundreds of prototypes, they have created a pillow to help banish those bedtime blues.  I was very fortunate to be sent one to review a few weeks ago and as someone who is a huge fan of the mattress, I couldn’t wait to try it out.

As I have got older I have found that I prefer to sleep with just one pillow, having my head propped up at an angle on two pillows makes my neck and shoulders hurt.  I wonder who it was that decided we need two pillows ? Sleeping with one Leesa pillow will keep your head and neck aligned, which helps you sleep better.

Whenever I am sent anything to review I like to check it out properly.  Its really important to me to give an honest, balanced point of view.  The Leesa Pillow has a quality outer covering made with Outlast technology developed for NASA no less! This gives a cool feel to the fabric, no turning the pillow over if the heat is on during hot summer nights or you are a lady of a certain age like myself who gets hot and flustered at the mere though of bedtime (and no its not THAT kind of though). It is zipped, and when opened contains a premium micro fibre filling which is soft and cushioning with the memory foam support layer in the middle.  I used to think that cotton and down or feather pillows were the best but after many years of trying all kinds of pillows from budget polyester to high end down, one thing they all had in common was how hot they made me feel after just a short time lying on them.  I have found the Leesa pillow really does delivery on its promise to keep you comfortable.

The Leesa Pillow is a premium pillow and as such comes with a relatively high price tag, but saying that I have researched other premium pillows on the market and most are similar or more expensive.  As the old adage goes, you get what you pay for.  One thing I particularly love about the Leesa brand is their ethical stance.  As with their mattresses, the pillow comes with their One-Ten commitment, where Leesa donates one pillow in every ten they sell to worthy cause.  You can read more about the amazing work they do and the charities they support HERE 

I’m a couple of weeks into using my new pillow and combined with my Leesa mattress, which I have had for coming up to three years now, (  you can read more about our mattresses HERE ) I am thrilled to bits.  Its comfortable, supports my head and neck whether I am sleeping on my back or side without swamping my head.  It’s  retaining its shape well and doesn’t smell, unlike my husband’s pillows ! He is next to get his switched over.

    I’ve actually been waiting for your review of these, in the market for some new pillows but overwhelmed by the choice! Thanks

    I heard murmurs of a new pillow from Leesa. It looks good. Well, the mattress is brilliant so I kind of expected that the pillow would be too.

    Really interested to read your review on the pillow. I bought some new (well known brand) pillows recently and am really disappointed with them and their lack of support, so it’s good to know about alternatives.

I'd love your comment
