Confessions of a Pillow Junkie!

They say a girl can never have too many pairs of shoes...or pillows...right?


Shhh! I have a confession to make...I’m a pillow junkie! Are you one, too? As a sleep products innovator, I have a pretty healthy obsession when it comes to sleep comfort. I’m fascinated with trying and developing new pillows. So, while some brands take a position of exhaustion by the endless amount of pillows in the market to try to lead you to your one and only pillow, just as I can never have too many shades of pink lipstick or too many shoes, I truly believe you can never have too many pillows to make your nights happy and comfortable!

If shoes are the ultimate fashion accessory that make or break an outfit, your pillow is the ultimate bedding accessory to personalize your sleep needs. From cooling, to targeted support qualities, natural or down alternative fills, a pillow collection is probably one of the most practical obsessions!

So, how do you know if you are a pillow junkie? Being a true pillow junkie requires an emotional connection. If you can relate to the following, congratulations you are officially obsessed with pillows!

  1. You enjoy walking up and down the pillow aisle at your favorite store or scrolling pillow assortments online. I thoroughly enjoy perusing for great sleep experiences and reading about the many constructions, features and benefits pillows have to offer. It’s the thrill of the hunt! While your pillow assortment may originally come from the practical need of a pillow, if you find that the excitement of a new one draws you in… Bingo! You’re in the game!

  2. You hate poorly made pillows with a vengeance. Every pillow junkie knows shopping for pillows with real benefits starts with looking for a nicely sewn together product, so don’t just settle for flashy packaging or romantic words. Demand more and get a better product, regardless of the price point you’re exploring. Well-filled pillows will have a smooth and even shape from end-to-end. Plus, check for loose threads or stitching that may also contribute to your pillow breaking down faster than it should.

  3. You actually look forward to being reunited with your pillows every single day, and maybe even twice a day if you can squeeze in a nap! If you find yourself daydreaming about your pillow collection, let’s face it. You are obsessed.

  4. Your stash of pillows galore is scattered everywhere, and you are constantly looking for storage ideas! This is where repurposing your zipper vinyl pillow or comforter bags come in very handy. If you are storing natural filled pillows, just be sure to leave a few inches of the bag unzipped to encourage more air flow so your filling material can breathe.

  5. Your birthday or any other wish list has some pillows ready to go! If a new pillow puts a smile on your face, a gift of one is sure to put a smile on someone else’s as well. It will certainly be the most talked about and appreciated gift for the “person who has everything,” “practical personality” or “luxury lover” in your life.

Finding new and interesting pillows that will complement your personal sleep style is the first key to success in building a pillow collection to be proud of, and I am here to help you do that!

For those interested in a natural fiber filled pillow alternative to down and feather the SleepSmart™ Temperature Regulating Wool Memory Down-Alternative Pillow from Pottery Barn could be the perfect place to start. In sports apparel, there is great synergy with 37.5® fiber blended with wool, especially for managing moisture. Wool is a natural material known for superior temperature regulation qualities, and how it readily absorbs moisture vapor, much like 37.5® technology. But, the 37.5® technology can also uniquely evaporate excess moisture and dry both the wool and down alternative fibers. When used together in the fill, they help release heat and keep humidity levels low, so you sleep cooler longer. The memory foam-like support makes this technical wool-blend pillow even more interesting.

What kind of pillow we use has one of the largest impacts on how comfortably we sleep, and therefore, how we feel in the morning. For that reason, we can never have too many of them! Get a great night’s sleep tonight so that you are ready to tackle your dreams tomorrow.
