Mypillow - Standard Queen Classic Pillow Review

1.0
Details
Have been blinded by barrage of television commercials about this pillow, but would never order a product like this without being able to touch and feel it beforehand. To my surprise while shopping at Bed Bath & Beyond I found 3 different displays in the same store with demo pillows open to touch and feel. The demo pillow felt very nice to me, full and firm...(understanding that the feel of a product like this is subjective to each person's tastes). Having had multiple cervical (neck) surgeries (fusions) and moderate discomfort since...especially at night...I decide to buy one and give it a try. Now, let me first say...the price tag on their website is absolutely INSANE...you are forced to buy TWO at the price of over $100 shipped! I have purchased many different pillows over the years, and most in the $29-$39 range, with a couple even cheaper for KING sized pillows!!! At BB&B the pillows were $49.99 each---still very expensive for a pillow on sale. I purchased the FIRM pillow, as I need a great deal of support to alleviate my neck pain. The firm model felt very densely packed yet soft to the touch. I get the pillow home and open it the same day. It comes in a plastic bag and feels just as dense as the demo did-while unopened. BUT---as soon as you remove it from the vacuum sealed plastic bag, the pillow turns into a pillow case seemingly filled only two thirds of the way with mostly free moving fill inside...not firm or dense at all. Furthermore - when laid across an outstretched arm, the pillow literally folded in half over my arm. When laid on a bed, a touch of the center of the pillow creates a gorge or valley in the middle...again by no means FIRM or dense like the demo. I defer to the claims stated by the owner Mike Lindell(sp?) in his television commercial, 'the pillow adjusts to your EXACT individual needs and holds that support all night long', and I decide to try it out anyway. I mean who knows...maybe there is something technological about the fill that makes it work?! As soon as I lay my head on the pillow, my head sinks down almost to the bed, with my chin behind the front of my shoulders. This is definitely not the properly aligned spine that his commercial promised. I then pack all the stuffing towards the center and lay on it, and now I feel like I am laying on a pile of lumpy marble-sized bumps. Not comfortable at all, but my neck is supported better. However, less than 45 minutes after falling asleep I awake to neck pain because my head is almost touching the bed again and the fill is surrounding my ears like a helmet. That finished it for me. I think to myself it must be a defective pillow...the demo model did not feel at all like this. I take it back the next day and show it to the manager. When placed side by side with the demo, it was visually clear that this pillow was nowhere near as filled or firm as its demo was. He gives me a new one which we take out of the box to feel before I leave...it feels very firm and densly filled. I leave feeling relieved that it was a defect and not a scam in the consumer. Later that day, I take the pillow out of its bag...NOT AGAIN!!! Yes indeed!!! As soon as the air rushes into the pillow as the vacuum bag is opened, the pillow turns into a loose sachel with some lumpy foam marbles in it that barely half-fill the pillow case. I am now quite frustrated to say the very least and take it back to the store the same day. I speak with the same manager as I did earlier. He and I open 4 other pillows, each time removing the vacuum sealed bag, and find they are all the same limp sachels with some fill that could in no way be described as a pillow-let alone a FIRM pillow. I wasted a lot of time, travel expense, and endured quite a bit of added pain to return and exchange a product that was clearly promised and guaranteed by the owner of the company to perform above all other pillows, only to realize that Mike Lindell is just another lying cheating scamming entrepreneur, selling potions of youth and bridges for a quarter! Don't waste your time or money on this product. I wonder if Rose Nylan is his quality control person. What an eyesore for the reputation of the state of Minnesota and its workers! He should not be advertising such garbage as a product of your great state.

Amen on my 2nd return of said pillows. They were supposed to send the original pillows I bought in 2015 WITH NO GUSSETS!

What did I get??

The same damn pillows. Never buy theses pillows it's the "ole bait and switch"

The pillows I received did not say to put them in the dryer. No mention of that.

My friend let me try hers. It came in a bag with instructions to put in dryer for 15 minutes. I tried her pillow and liked it. Then I ordered the exact same pillows.

HATE them! What a waste of my money. No instructions to put in dryer, but did so.

Pillows are so uncomfortable my neck hurts. Wake with headaches.

Does no one read directions anymore? Put it in the dryer for 15 minutes and you wouldn't have this issue.

This is a defective customer, not a defective pillow. One would think you would read directions if all of the pillows were the same when opened in the store.

You are supposed to run the pillow in the dryer BEFORE using to expand filling after being vacuum sealed for so long

I thought you were supposed to put it in the dryer for 15 mins when you open it to fluff out all of the filling. Did you try doing that?

Did you read directions? Fluff it up in the dryer for 15 minutes?

You didn't read the directions did you? Shame!

There were absolutely no directions in any of the boxes at BB&B. Did you order yours directly from mypillow?

The ones at BB&B come in a large pillow box and pillow is full size in the bag. People who ordered them from mypillow received their pillows rolled up in a tight bag---which required fluffing....NOT the pillow at BB&B.

I am not shouting, just emphasizing. ;)

Ordered pillows, did not arrive even tho we had shipping confirmation thru USPS. This was not the first time we had not received a package from Post Office. My Pillow was great, shipped replacements thru UPS. We had then in a few days. Been using them for over a year and still love them.

MyPillow - Misleading advertising

They are making a cheaper version and selling it to retailers. It is called the Classic series and has TWO loft levels. On the packaging label of the Classic pillow it states it is the official pillow of the National Sleep Foundation But.... the booklet that comes with the Classic pillow we purchased states the Premium Pillow is the offical pillow of the National Sleep Foundation; listing the attributes, one of which is FOUR loft levels. Did the Sleep Foundation choose both, I doubt it. Misleading advertising. We went to their website ten days before Christmas and the shipping charge was 24 dollars but to guarantee a Christmas delivery they wanted 48 dollars shipping. Ridiculous that a 24 dollar ship charge wouldn't get it here in ten days; that we needed to upgrade to premium shipping. I have used it once, I woke up this a.m. and my head was in a "hole"; I will be returning them. Very disappointing; he seemed so sincere.

This is my second go around. I got one a few yrs ago and picked white.

I ordered green this time and same problem you had. Not to mention a sore next. Ugh.

Woke up several times during the night. So uncomfortable.

Not to mention the NSF is a scam they control. Check out their website, it's selling the CPAP cleaning machine advertised alongside the pillow on late night news.

Purchased in RV show in Phoenix in 2011. They had been around for quite some time in many RV shows. The money back guaranty got me. All I can say is I have never slept so good. My wife did not like hers (she thought it was too firm). I liked liked the support for my neck. I have washed mine 3-5 times in four years and I think it will outlive me. We purchased four and I think I paid $240 plus tax for them. Two went in our guest room. I don't remember complaints or complements either from our guests. I did not read through all the posts, but I am pretty sure that nobody was refused a refund because they did not like the way the pillow slept. That is the bottom line, isn't it? I better night of sleeping, GUARANTEED! I personally thought that The Nation Sleep Foundation might be bogus. SO WHAT! If it doesn't work for you, GET A REFUND!! By the way, I have been in sales for 50 years. There are lots of good products and bad products. In my opinion, this is a well made (in the USA!!), durable (machine wasgable) product with a no questions asked money back guarantee. Shop around and find another that comes with all those pillows made in CHINA!!. Best $60. I have ever spent. G.P. Washington State

I don't have a negative review to post I have a positive one. I don't know but other people's pillows that they are complaining about but I bought mine and sale at the Christmas tree shop in my area in Massachusetts. I could tell you it is the best thing I've ever owned I have fallen asleep and kept to sleep the last two weeks but she never has happened to me before. Is the most comfortable pillow I've ever owned it was worth the $50 I got for it on sale even if it was just for a few weeks and falls apart I would review it and a heartbeat there is nothing that can take away those full nights of sleep I have not had for years

I have cervical stenosis, collapsed discs, wedge fractures, and arthritis. The "My Pillow" is absolutely amazing! For the first time in more than fifteen years I am not only getting some restful sleep, but I also don't wake with a pounding migraine and excruciating burning pain in my neck! I have the "medium" My Pillow, and it's easily adjusted to fit the contour I need, and it stays that way the whole time; no need to constantly keep adjusting. Unlike other memory foam pillows I've tried in the past, the My Pillow is not “hot” and does not make your head sweat. I highly recommend My Pillow!

This review would have made more sense if the writer had used a little punctuation, and spent 30 seconds reviewing what they had written before posting. I can tell that they hated the pillow, but that's about all.

I own 5 bed pillows, 6 travel pillows and the bed topper. I have been a satisfied customer for probably 5 years or more. If it goes flat....fluff it! Use your hands or throw it in the dryer the next day. This lawsuit is awful. It has medically helped my husband, just as they have claimed. If you adjust the pillow to your head and neck, it's amazing how much better your body is. I will continue to buy more. Thanks Mike Lindell for the wonderful pillows. Mine go with me where ever my head lays down for the night.

MyPillow - No problem with My Pillow

I bought a queen size My Pillow for myself. My husband wanted to tried it before I bought one for him. After sleeping on My Pillow a few nights, I asked him if he liked the pillow. He said yes, he liked it. My husband has to use a Cepack machine every night. He said that My Pillow made it more comfortable for him to sleep. Now I am going out to get another My Pillow for myself. I told a friend about my new My Pillow. She went over to Bed Bath and Beyond and bought a My Pillow for herself and loves it.

Why should I believe your post? You don't even know that the machine your husband uses at night is a CPAP Machine not a CePec machine you ***.

Mypillow - Standard Queen Classic  Pillow Review from Rio Vista, California
A few week's ago, I purchased 2 my pillow standard queen, only one that is available at Bed Bath and Beyond. I purchased for our rv. I then purchased 2 king size through official my pillow website. I returned after a few days, as they hurt our necks. I have now received lower grade. Until then, I have been using queen size at home. Washing instructions recommend washing in warm water and dry on high. I have just finished wash cycle and have a huge gaping hole that shows all fill. I obviously cannot dry in dryer or indeed even use them. Do I contact my pillow or bed bath and beyond? Not a very happy camper.

i'm not usually one to post negativity but I must be honest... MyPillow is probably one of the WORST pillows I have ever bought. I had been laying on it for an hour and a half and my neck is killing me. It's extremely lumpy and hard and just not comfortable. Do not waste your money, it is not worth it.
