TEMPUR Ergonomic Support Pillow makes a Difference
If you had read my visits to the chiropractic clinic previously, you would know that the reason that my neck felt very stiff was because I have lost some cervical bone curvature of my neck which is suppose to be slightly curved for normal people. I am sure stiff neck and neck pain is an extremely common problem especially for those who have to be on computers for a long time. I am very particular on the mattress and pillow that I slept on because it is where I spent 8 hours a day which is substantial hours of my lifespan.
I have converted to using memory foam pillow instead of cotton filled ones but I still find myself turning a lot during my sleep and smacking the pillow to get it in shape for the contour of my neck. *literally looking like a crazy women punching the pillow in the middle of the night* I am not exaggerating as I was so angry that the pillow wasn’t able to support my neck properly.
I started to became worried that my stiff neck would get worse and it will soon result in neck pain if I do not do something about it. I searched the internet one night for the best pillow available for neck support and this brand TEMPUR came up. Their prices of their pillows are average around $200 – $300+ SGD but if they could provide a better night sleep and the rest we all need for the next day then I think you would agree that the price is not a huge issue then.
TEMPUR mattresses and pillows are recognised by NASA and certified by the Space Foundation. All TEMPUR pillows are imported from Denmark and comes with a 3 year warranty in case of excessive indentation.
So I decided to visit TEMPUR shop at 20 Martin Road, Seng Kee Building to try out the pillows. They were very nice to patiently let me try and test out all their Ergonomic Support range of pillows.
They have 5 types of Classic Comfort Pillows which are the more normal type pillows.
But what is amazing is that TEMPUR have 6 types of Ergonomic Support pillow specially made for the different types of sleepers. I was surprise because I did not know until then that different shaped pillows holds and supports your neck differently for different sleeping position. *I bet you didn’t know too so read on to see my testing and trying out ALL OF THEM. Heheheee 🙂 🙂 :)*
Plus you will also find out which pillow I chose for me and my hubby at the end of the blog post. 🙂
TEMPUR Original Pillow
The TEMPUR Original Pillow comes in M, L, XL and it is the best selling pillow of this whole range because it is contoured for optimal support on the head, neck and shoulders and it’s perfect for both side and occasional back sleepers.
You can see from the above photo how nicely it contoured to my neck when I was both lying on the side and on my back. No GAPS!!! The curve of the pillow is just right for the L size Original Pillow. The material feels both firm and soft at the same time.
TEMPUR Millennium Pillow
TEMPUR Millennium Pillow also comes in 3 sizes. M, L and XL which is prefect for back sleepers and is a hot seller from the ergonomic support pillow range as well. You can see from the photos it has like a concave area at once side of the edge to cradle the neck.
I agree the pillow looks a little funny. As if someone has taken a bite off the pillow leaving like a ”hole” at the edge of the pillow. Hahaha!
But look at when I am lying on my back, the pillow is just cradling my neck gently locking it into place. NICE! I didn’t know a pillow can lock my neck into place like this.
TEMPUR Symphony Pillow
TEMPUR Symphony Pillow comes in 2 sizes M and L. The feel of it is softer compared to the TEMPUR Classic Pillow. But it doesn’t feel too flat though. It is suitable for side and back sleepers which allows you to sleep in pretty much any sleeping position.
TEMPUR Sonata Pillow
TEMPUR Sonata Pillow has a curved shape for enhancing comfort for people who likes sleeping in foetal positions. I like sleeping in a foetal position as well and my husband always laugh at me asking me why I sleep like a baby. It is good to know that there is even a pillow catered to sleeping in the foetal position.
Awesome right? 🙂
Wait till you see the next one!
TEMPUR Ombracio Pillow
TEMPUR Ombracio Pillow has a unique design making it especially comfortable for people who sleep on their stomach. This is very unique type of pillow for people who sleep on their front.
I am sure those of you who loves to sleep on your front always wonder if there is any pillow that can make you more comfortable since you do not lie on your back. Yes you have found it now here on my blog. When you hug the Ombracio Pillow, it actually feels very nice and comfortable being able to hold the pillow nicely in all angles when lying on the stomach.
All the pillows feels very good and comfortable when lying on. I had to kept on swapping and trying each of them out many times to finally being able to make my decision of which one to pick.
In the end after trying all of them, I decide to go for the Original Pillow in L size. Since my hubby is a back sleeper it is pretty easy to go for the Millennium pillow in L size for him.
The below screenshot shows my hubby giving feedback on the pillows the very next day after trying out the pillow. We usually don’t text each other during the day and him sending me a message to compliment the pillow is REALLY something abnormal.
Me and my hubby have been sleeping on the new pillows for about 10 days now and definitely I had stop waking up in the night and punching my pillow into shape. I find myself waking up naturally earlier than usual and feeling more refreshed in the morning. The stiffness of my neck has definitely improved and I can turn my head more now like my neck is ”looser”.
It is definitely surprising that a pillow can make such a huge difference to our sleeping pattern.
My verdict is that the TEMPUR pillows are really worth every single cent as no amount of money can buy a good night sleep.
SERIOUSLY! I am so thankful and happy with the pillows. THANK YOU TEMPUR FOR THE PILLOWS:)
