Have you ever returned home from a long trip, only to lay down in bed and yearn for the plushy, supportive, down filled pillows of the hotel you stayed in?
Not only are fancy hotel pillows super comfortable, they're also super expensive — some will run you $140 or more.
Multiple that by four... and you've got a $560 headrest. For that price, you could buy a quality down pillow and duvet set (or two!).
The moral of the story is that good bedding isn't cheap, and if you've ever been in the market for it, you know that all too well.
But, what if you could craft a pillow that's specially made for you, for under $100? Pluto Pillow helps you do just that, and gives you a 100 night risk-free trial to boot.
After buying our first home at the beginning of May, my fiancé and I added new bedding to our "to buy" list. In preparation for the move, I had him try out a custom-built Pluto pillow since he's been experiencing some neck pain.
Curious about the results? Find out what our vision of "the perfect pillow" did for our quality of sleep - and my fiancés neck pain - below.
How it works
Believe it or not, Pluto Pillow is the first and only pillow that's custom-built to your body stats, sleep style, and personal preferences.
Considering that a pillow is something you spend an average of 26 years laying on over the course of your life (according to Pluto), it's important that it helps you get a restful night's sleep.
Here's how the Pluto process works:
First, Pluto asks you to complete a quick questionnaire on your body stats, how you sleep, and what your comfort preferences are.
Then, your data runs through an algorithm that helps Pluto produce a custom pillow for your unique sleep profile. Through the brand's patent pending process, Pluto analyzes which custom combination of 35-plus materials should go into your pillow for optimal rest and recovery.
Finally, your pillows gets delivered straight your door (with free shipping). Plus, if you decide that your custom pillow is not for you within 100 nights, you can return it and get a full refund.
Prior to receiving our custom Pluto pillow, a representative from the company reached out to see if we'd like to try a brand new material that Pluto is using for its quilted surfaces, since it lends a "more hotel plush feel.'
We could not have been more happy with the result - Pluto nailed our version of the perfect pillow.
With a solid foam core, the pillow's density and thickness reflected what we indicated in our questionnaire. These features offer plenty of support for my fiancé's neck, and there's no sinking down to our mattress.
Plus, the amount of cushion on either side of his head helps him feel like his neck is being braced, without being restricted.
The quality of the pillow can be felt through the pillow case as well - Pluto does not cheap out on the specifics, like the optional cooling fibres for hot sleepers.
In our opinion, the cooler it is at night, the better (mostly because we like the feeling of being cuddled up in blankets and pillows).
And since cooler temperatures have proven to help maintain sleep quality for most people, Pluto's special cooling fibres have come to the rescue at just the right time.
If you're looking for new pillows that will help you get a better sleep during the summer months, Pluto might be a brand to check out.
