Good sleep is a truly personal experience and varies for each of us. From differences in our age, height, weight and gender, to health challenges and sleep styles, we all have different needs. In today’s post we discuss the similarities and differences between top bedding brands MyPillow and Snuggle-Pedic. We breakdown which pillow is best suited to your sleep position and sleep preferences while also comparing price, warranty and trial period. Our goal is to help provide you with the information you need to be confident in your purchasing decisions.



The Snuggle-Pedic pillow features a Kool-Flow® Micro-Vented Bamboo Cover. It also features a Certipur-US certified gel-infused shredded memory foam mix. The cover, which is hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial, contains micro vents that increase the breathability of the pillow, ensuring a cooler sleeping experience.

Snuggle-Pedic comes compressed and takes a little while to fully expand. If you can’t wait to try out your new pillow, pop it in the dryer for a few minutes to help speed up the process. The pillow ships with an additional bag of shredded foam allowing you to adjust the fill of the pillow as you see fit.

The feel

Bamboo is one of my favorite textiles, not only does it provide tons of benefits, it just feels cool and sensuous to the touch. Adding to the luxury is the shredded memory foam mix with a medium to medium soft firmness feel.

Working immediately with the heat from your body, the memory foam conforms and contours, providing the ultimate pressure relief. With the ability to remove or add the shredded foam fill this pillow could be a good fit for all sleep positions!

Machine washable and dryable

We love that the Snuggle-Pedic pillow is machine washable because the Kool-Flow® bamboo cover is so comfortable you may wish to forgo using a pillow case. If you decide to go without, don’t worry, the cover is easily removed (unzipped) for placing in the washer and dryer. In fact, the entire pillow can be machine washed! In addition to being good hygiene, washing your bedding can help eliminate dust mites.

Brand Policies

The Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush pillow is available in Standard, Queen and King sizes with a Queen size pillow starting at $90.99.

As far as pillows go Snuggle-Pedic offers one of the longest sleep trials and warranties we have seen. Snuggle-Pedic comes with 120-night sleep trial and a 20-year non-prorated warranty.



MyPillow is made with a 100% cotton outer cover and polyurethane foam fill. Polyurethane foam is essentially a neutral foam that provides a light, airy foam feel. It is available in 4 different loft sizes ranging from very little fill to lots of fill with the recommended fill based on your gender and t-shirt size.

After receiving your MyPillow directions state you will need to pop it into the dryer for 15 minutes allowing it to plump up to its full size. Once it is plumped up it is ready to take to bed!

The world's most comfortable pillow?

MyPillow boldly claims it is “the world’s most comfortable pillow”. I can’t say that it is the most comfortable pillow I’ve ever slept with but, if you are looking for a comfortable pillow without the bells and whistles, MyPillow might be the right choice for you.

MyPillow has sold over 40 million pillows and isn’t slowing down anytime soon. While many seem very happy with their purchase there were a good number of reviews that showed customers felt the pillow was overpriced for what it was. Negative reviews showed disappointment in the quality of materials stating that the pillow felt lumpy. While we did find the pillow to be quite comfortable, we would have to agree.

How to clean MyPillow

MyPillow may not have a removable outer cover but it is machine washable, just throw the entire pillow in the washer/dryer! In fact, MyPillow recommends throwing it in the wash every couple of months to keep it fresh and clean.

Brand Policies

MyPillow offers a 60-day sleep trial and a 10-year warranty. Prices for a Standard/Queen size pillow start at $49.98.

Best Sellers on Amazon

Both brands seem to be quite popular on amazon. In the case of Snuggle-Pedic it is not only one of the top selling brands on Amazon, it is also one of the highest rated pillows! It received 4.5 stars out of 5, with 71% of users rating it 5 out of 5 stars!

Like Snuggle-Pedic, MyPillow is also one of the best selling pillows on Amazon. While MyPillow can be purchased directly, most reviews show that purchasing on Amazon customers were able to get a better deal. Ratings show MyPillow received 3.5 stars out of 5, with 49% giving it a 5 star rating.


There is no right or wrong pillow, it just boils down to what is right for you. However, it is worth considering the following when making a decision:

While both brands are designed to accommodate all sleep positions, Snuggle-Pedic offered a clear advantage with its adjustable loft construction. Though neither pillow slept particularly hot, we felt Snuggle-Pedic provided a cooler sleeping experience versus MyPillow which slept more temperature neutral.

On the other hand, for those not a fan of memory foam, MyPillow is the way to go. The interlocking poly foam provides a neutral foam feel that is both lighter and more responsive.

Lastly, though MyPillow comes with a smaller price tag we did feel Snuggle-Pedic provided better value for money due to the quality of materials and construction.
