The Purple Pillow is the best pillow in the world?


How many pillows have you gone through in your life? If you’re still using the same one from childhood, first of all, gross. Second of all, there’s no way that that thing is still giving your head and neck proper support. Hopefully you’re now ready to move on and will spend time scouring the market to find the perfect pillow. Once you begin this journey, you will discover that most of the time options for fillings include feathers, fluff, foam, memory foam, and, well, that’s about it. Certain shapes are said to be more beneficial for you than others, but that’s normally accounting for a whole mass of people rather than your specific needs.

If you’re wanting a pillow that’s state-of-the-art, look no further than the Purple Pillow. This is made of hyper elastic polymer in the shape of several hundred tiny triangles, and is said to feel like laying on a fat person’s stomach. The construction of the triangles gives lateral support to the core of the pillow, making sure that your head is as comfortable as possible. The material and build are also conducive to keeping you cool so you’re always on the best side of the pillow.

This is of course not your average pillow, and will likely take a bit of getting used to seeing that it weighs 10 pounds. It measures 24 x 16 x 3”, coming with a cover (though you’ll probably still want to put a pillow case on it), and a pillow booster for those who don’t like their head to be too close to the bed. The best part is that it should hold up for years to come, and only costs around $79, which is far cheaper than many memory foam options out there.
