As a bad sleeper I have come to learn the importance of the quality of your mattress and pillow over the years. I’d recently spent the night away from home and slept on a lovely pillow and realised it was time to replace my old faithful.
I embarked on what I find to be one of the hardest things to shop for – a new pillow. I bought a cheap option which worked well for a night or two, but it wasn’t right. I took the plunge spending a considerable amount on a pillow at Briscoes. I got it home and it was clearly evident that I’d bought the wrong pillow again. It got relegated to the now growing pillow pile and I went back to the old faithful, although it was still clear I needed a new pillow. I was reluctant to spend any more money on what felt like a pillow luck dip … so imagine my surprise then when an Ecosa pillow arrived at the office, and someone was needed to review one!
My colleagues thought it was hilarious how excited I was about a pillow in a box. The Ecosa pillow looked like a great flexible option to try. It consists of one main Activated Charcoal Memory Foam pillow and two extra pads/inserts that allow you to adjust the height of the pillow to suit, through an easy to use back-zip system.
I’ve never slept on a foam pillow before, so it took a little getting used to the firmness of the pillow on the first night. The first good sign was that I didn’t wake up with a dead arm. I am a side/tummy sleeper and often wake up with my hands squashed under the pillow. The memory foam moulds around the arm and doesn’t impact the height of the pillow.
I felt a little like ‘Goldilocks and the 3 Bears’ getting the height right using the removeable/addable extras over the following nights: one night was too high, the next too low then finally on the fourth night, I got the balance just right.
I have been sleeping on the pillow for the past three months and love it. The pillow isn’t the magic fix for my lifetime of bad sleeping but I am sleeping much better as a result of using it. I no longer wake up with a stiff neck or dead arms from sleeping with them under my pillow.
