I sometimes feel like I am constantly buying pillows. Here at The Madhouse, we each have two pillows on our beds, so with five of us, that means there are ten pillows constantly in use. Eventually they get totally flattened and we have to buy new ones but there are so many on the go that as soon as one lot are replaced, we need to start all over again in one of the other bedrooms ! Needless to say, when I was offered the chance of reviewing a Dreem Luxury Memory Foam Pillow from Bedstar, I jumped at the chance.
I was intrigued to see what we'd think of the memory foam because I usually prefer feather pillows, finding the foam ones go lumpy and flat too quickly. But this is memory foam, so would it be different ? Well, the first thing I noticed was how plump they are. I was convinced the big fluffy package must contain two pillows because it looked really big but no, it was just the one ! It is much thicker than my usual pillow so I've used it to replace both my normal pillows.
The pillow is quite firm, much firmer than a feather pillow, but it has a nice amount of give when you lay your head on it. Your head sinks down just enough for a feeling of softness but the foam resists and gives a nice level of support too.
When I first took it out of the packaging, I thought it had quite a plasticky smell, but once I'd put it in a pillow case, I couldn't smell it any more. I'm actually typing this, sitting up in bed with the pillow behind me and it is absolutely brilliant for propping you up in bed. It's squishy and comfortable but offers great support, keeping me sitting upright without feeling the headboard digging me in the back as usually happens.
As someone who usually avoids foam pillows, I have to say I'm impressed. Memory foam isn't as soft as my usual feather stuffing but it does offer a lot more support and seems as if it will be much longer-lasting.
