I am a super busy mom with two young boys, a small business and a blog (not to mention a house to run) Sleep is a very precious commodity in my home so when I actually make it to my bed I need to be comfortable immediately without wasting time getting my pillows “just right.”
I am a complete pillow snob and have pretty much had almost every type of pillow out there. My mom likes to buy me the latest innovation in pillows every year so I literally have quite a selection to choose from! When I was given the opportunity to try out a new type of pillow from DACRON® I was excited to see what this pillow was all about.
I was given two queen sized DACRON® Memory Fiber Down Alternative pillows to try out. I don’t have any known allergies but I avoid feather pillows all together due to the “poke factor”. You know the feeling. You are sleeping peacefully and with the slightest move of your head you practically get speared in the face by a pokey feather. Not restful at all! These pillows are the complete opposite of feather pillows. They are made of DACRON® Memory Fiber fill and are covered in a silky smooth, 300 thread count sateen stripe material. All materials are hypoallergenic and machine washable which is a necessity when you have children.
When I took the pillows out of the box I immediately took notice at how fluffy and full these pillows were. I was worried at first because I like a thinner pillow but was pleasantly surprised when I tried it out. The pillow was full but had a nice give to it and supported my head and neck nicely. I am a side sleeper 100% of the time so support is a huge factor in a great night’s sleep. My husband and I both spent about a week using these pillows to sleep, read and watch tv in bed. We both agreed on the firm support these pillows provided. This was a great feature while sitting up while, watching tv or reading in bed. I usually need at least two or three pillows to support my lower back and shoulders but this pillow was enough on its own. The pillows did not lose their shape at all and bounced back to their original size after each use.
While I did enjoy using the pillow, I did find it a bit too full for me to sleep on for more than a few nights. Like I mentioned before, I tend to like thinner pillows for sleeping. My husband loved sleeping on his full, fluffy pillow. I thought the pillow might be too firm for him too but I was wrong, As you can see in the photo, it was perfect for him. Overall, I would recommend these pillows for anyone that likes a firm, supportive pillow. You will not be disappointed.
These DACRON® Memory Fiber Down Alternative pillows will be debuting exclusively at a Target and will retail at less than half the price of most natural down pillows. Let me know what you think if you try these pillows out. I would love your opinions.
I received two DACRON® Memory Fiber Down Alternative pillows in order to facilitate this review. No other compensation was received. All options are 100% mine
