The nice people over at Sleep Number contacted me and asked me to do a review and a giveaway and of course I agreed because who really doesn’t want a free $189 pillow? Right? I’m sure glad I did because this pillow is suuuuweeeet! It’s the Sleep Number® AirFit™ Adjustable Pillow in the CoolFit™ Foam option. It’s gel technology works within memory foam to create a cooler, more comfortable sleeping experience. These pillows aren’t available to the public yet, but I got a special sneak peek (cool!).
The Good: Love the memory foam! Always been a big fan of memory foam and I was super excited that I wasn’t getting a goose down pillow that looses it’s volume immediately after laying your head down on it. Love the soft, cushy pillow cover with the cute little pocket for the valve. OK…first I was like, that valve is weird and does it really work? Well, it’s not that weird after you cover it up and yes, it really does work! I pushed down on the pillow and a lot of the air out of the pillow came out and made it about 1/3 of the size it originally was. Super cool. I’d give this pillow a 9 out of 10.
The Bad: It smells. Now after a few days of having the pillow the initial smell has gone away, but when I first got it, it really smelled bad. I don’t know if it’s chemicals that they use or what, but you seriously have to air this thing out before using it. I washed the pillow cover and let the pillow air out for a few days and it was fine, but there was no way I could sleep that first night if I hadn’t. They actually have a warning and handy little instructions pertaining to this matter.
