Is MyPillow A Good Pillow?

Every person has had those mornings in which they feel like they have been robbed of good night’s sleep. You get up, stretch a bit, and notice just how sore either your neck, back, or maybe even your arm feels. MyPillow claims to fix all of those problems by adjusting to your neck position.

Is it for everyone?

Sleeping on your back, side or your stomach is different. Because of its softness and thinness, MyPillow is most suitable for side sleepers. That same thinness can hurt your neck if you are a back sleeper, and because of its lumpiness and heftiness most people who sleep on their stomach find it uncomfortable.

After a couple of weeks of use, the lumps can become more noticeable, which can have a negative impact when it comes to adapting to the shape of your neck. The pillow might also start slightly collapsing after a few months, but because of its big warranty this should not scare you.

Cover and noisiness

The MyPillow cover is made from 100% cotton, and it doesn’t have any noticeable odors like most of the other pillows have. However, it is pretty noisy, as the cotton cover is rougher than it should be, and that can present a problem if you are a lighter sleeper. Also, it heats up a tiny bit less than a normal pillow, with the difference being barely noticeable, despite its claims that it stays cool during the night.

Easy maintenance

For many people, cleaning and taking care of their pillow is a hassle. MyPillow can be machine washed and dried, which makes it low-maintenance and giving it a big plus.

Money-back guarantee and warranty

The 60-day money back guarantee that this pillow has renders it a pretty safe purchase. Two months of sleep are more than enough to decide whether this pillow has had good impact on you. If you are not satisfied, you will get 100% of your money back (minus the shipping costs). It has a 10-year warranty, during which you can get your replacement if the pillow goes flat, with the shipping costs being covered.


MyPillow stands somewhere in the middle of the pack. It is a pretty good choice if you are a side-sleeper or you want a pillow that can be washed and dried with relative ease. Because of its strong marketing campaign, it can give you high expectations. But, for its price point, it does exactly what it should do. Because of its 60-day money back guarantee it is risk-free, and there is no reason not to try it and see if it can improve your quality of sleep.
