I finally tested the SenseSleep ergonomic pillow. I have never used a high-end pillow – I always thought these pillows are a fad and will disappear as fast as they came. However, after testing the Sense Sleep Pillow, I realized that these would have been my solution to sleeplessness.
Have you ever had insomnia, sleep apnea, or discomfort when you go to bed? You are not alone; there are more than a third of Americans suffering from sleeplessness. Do you know what causes your insomnia or what you can do about it?
Well, this pillow sports a design that offers comfortable sleep for all sleeping positions, whether you are a side sleeper, back sleeper, stomach sleeper, or combination sleeper. Read on to learn more.
What should you consider when shopping for the perfect pillow?
Types of Pillows
Pillows are classified based on the filling material. Memory foam pillows have foam filling, which contours to the shape of your head and neck. Latex pillows feature shredded natural, synthetic, or organic latex. These pillows have the same advantages as memory foam pillows, including support breathability, pressure relief, and they are cooler. However, latex is more expensive.
Other types of pillows are natural and organic pillows. These are made of naturally occurring materials and certified organic materials, respectively. While these options are earth-friendly, they are relatively expensive and may be challenging to wash.
Down feather and down alternative pillows are ultra-soft and luxurious. As such, they come at a higher cost. Down feather pillows are stuffed with down feathers from ducks, geese, and other fowl. Down alternative pillows have a filling that looks and feels like down; the stuffing might be natural or synthetic. Other types of pillows include cotton, polyester, and buckwheat pillows.
Size, Loft, and Density
The size of a pillow determines how comfortable you feel. While a large pillow might appear good looking and comfortable, it might angle your neck, causing tension and joint pain. Granted, the size of a pillow should match the size of the sleeper. A good pillow should allow your shoulders to rest comfortably on the bed while your whole head rests on it.
The loft of a pillow refers to its height. Pillows such as SenseSleep have an adjustable loft to meet the needs of different users. When looking for the loft of a pillow, consider its density too. For instance, down and wool pillows have high loft and low density. This way, when you sleep on them, they sink to accommodate your size. However, pillows with low density offer less support. Pillows with high loft and high density are ideal for taller sleepers.
The density of a pillow refers to its firmness. High-density pillows offer a lot of support, and the head sinks just a little. These are ideal for side sleepers. Low-density pillows allow the head to sink, and they offer little support. These pillows are good for stomach and back sleepers.
Comfort, Support, and Coolness
Ensure that your pillow is comfortable with soft fabric at the top. Pillows help keep your spine aligned, to avoid aches and pressure. As such, ensure that your pillow offers you enough support based on your sleeping position. Again, ensure that the materials of the pillow are breathable enough to keep you cool at night.
Lastly, ensure that the pillow you pick is hypoallergenic and comes with a generous warranty. If you choose to go for a smart pillow, pick one that is easier to use and solves your insomnia problem. You can’t sleep without music, pick one with built-in speakers. If your problem is snoring, pick a pillow that solves that.
Breathability and Pillow Cover
If you sleep hot, a breathable pillow offers enough ventilation to keep you cool all night long. This is for people who cannot sleep at night, because they are not comfortable enough, due to heat. There are many systems that manufacturers apply to make a pillow breathable. Both the feeling and the pillow cover need to be breathable. Besides breathability, the pillow cover needs to be absorbent to wick away sweat on hot nights and keep you dry and comfortable.
The pillow cover material needs to be so soft and with a good feel. If you will be washing your pillow often, you need a material that can withstand frequent washing.
The standard rectangular pillow is not ideal when you have a special sleeping condition such as apnea , when you are pregnant and you can’t sleep by your side, or when you are sick and need to sit up on bed most of the time. There are specialty pillows for different groups. The SenseSleep pillow is a standard rectangular pillow only that it is made with high quality materials.
If you have medical issues such as sinus issues, acid reflux, back pain, apnea, or any other condition that makes it challenging for you to sleep, consult your physician.
Sense Sleep sports a design that solves your sleeplessness problem. It is ideal for people who cannot find the right sleeping position, or the right sleeping conditions at night. Even if you sleep just fine at night, you can still improve the quality of your sleep with this pillow.
To help you fight sleeplessness, SenseSleep has a rebound filling that contours to the shape of your head and neck. The filling offers you enough comfort and support while you sleep. Its unique design gives you exceptional comfort, whether you are a side, back, or stomach sleeper.

Features and Performance
You can customize this pillow anyway you want to enhance the quality of your sleep. The high-quality design ensures that you can sleep comfortably during cold and warm nights. If your problem is finding a comfortable position in bed, the pillow will help you sleep better.
Anti-bacterial and Hypoallergenic Materials
Do you have a dust mite allergy or any other allergy? You can tell you are allergic to dust mite if you wake up with a runny nose, sneezing, itching eyes, and painful itching face. Dust mites hide in pillows and can cause a lot of problems. With the SenseSleep pillow, you do not have to worry about dust mites.
The pillow sports an anti-microbial and hypoallergenic construction to ensure that bacteria and allergens do not survive in it. Better yet, it is made of 100 percent polyester with a 3D spacer mesh fabric that makes it easy to wash. Because you can wash the pillow frequently, you are sure that dust mites will not survive in it.
Elastic and Stretchable
The filling in SenseSleep is memory foam. This filling stretches and sinks as per the shape of your head and neck. The elasticity is enhanced by the pillow cover, which stretches as the filling sinks.
The pillow cover feels soft to your skin, adding to the comfort of the pillow. No matter how much the pillow sinks or stretches, it still goes back to its original size and shape. It is vacuum compressed when shipping to you, but only takes a few hours to rise to its right size. Better yet, the pillow does not have the chemical smell associated with memory foam.
Quick-Drying, Machine-Washable Materials
I love that I can wash this pillow any time and it will dry fast. Again, I do not have to worry about putting it in a washer machine, as the pillow materials are strong enough to withstand machine washing. You can wash it as often as necessary and this will not affect the quality of the pillow.
Better yet, you can spot clean the pillow with warm water and a piece of cloth, and it cleans fast. This makes the pillow ideal for homes with children, hospitals, and elderly homes.
Breathability and Absorbency
You do not need to worry about warm nights, thanks to the 3D spacer mesh used on the pillow. The mesh is breathable enough to cool you on very hot nights, for comfortable sleep.
Not only is the surface breathable, but also highly absorbent. When you sweat at night, the pillow wicks away moisture, leaving you dry and comfortable.
This is ideal as it prevents skin problems that might be caused by high heat and moisture.
The SenseSleep pillow is stuffed with a supportive filling that contours to the shape of your head and neck, allowing you to sleep better at night. If you are a side sleeper, the pillow offers you enough support to keep your spine aligned. If you sleep on your back or your stomach, you can adjust the loft of the pillow to accommodate your sleeping position. It is easy to remove or add the filling material to adjust loft and sleep comfortably.
Sense Sleep comes in average size; it is not a large pillow, and neither is it small. The pillow has a 40cm length that is just enough to accommodate most users. It also has an average width, so, it can fit the head of anyone who needs enough support from a premium pillow. Whether you have a large head or a small one, and regardless of your sleeping position, this pillow will help you sleep better. Again, its average size means you can carry it when you go camping.
On the Side of the pillow, is a small concealed zip. The zip opens and closes with ease, making it easy for you when you need to clean the pillow. When zipped up, the pillow is concealed. This zip is not bulky and you will never feel it when you are sleeping. Again, it does not come in your way when you are laundering the pillow.
When you need to adjust the loft, unzip the case and add or remove the memory foam filling. While the manufacturer does not offer extra foam filling, you are sure to find foam in your nearest mattress shop. However, Hypertechx always ensure there is enough foam in your pillow, so, you never have to buy more.
This is not a feature, but I had to put it here. The manufacturer guarantees quality for every pillow they sell. The premium materials coupled with premium construction ensures that you get a pillow that lasts for many years.
Better yet, you also get a heavy-duty pillow case with heavy-duty zip, to keep your pillow clean and protected at all times.
The product ships to you fast so you can start enjoying premium sleep. It is only available for order online.
The Sense Sleep pillow is free of any chemicals such as Formaldehyde. It is also free of any pungent smells even after unboxing. It is also vegan and cruelty-free. The eco-friendly pillow is safe to use right out-of-the-box. All materials are durable to give you value for your money. While you might need to buy extra filling, if you need it, the pillow is competitively priced.
High-end pillows are expensive, but this ergonomic pillow is competitively price. This is one of the factors that I love about it. It is also the main selling point of the pillow as seen in most of the online reviews I checked out. The pillow has received hundreds of reviews from users on different platforms.
Most users love the fact that you can customize the pillows, especially the loft. Adjusting the pillows like you want makes it ideal for use by all family members. As reviewers put it, the feel of the SenseSleep pillow is premium and great for all types of sleepers. The pillow has garnered so many 5-star reviews from happy users.
Some users wish the pillow was designed specifically for snorers. If you snore, you can still use the pillow, as it allows you to get into a comfortable position to sleep better, as some users observed. Some users with apnea also got help from the pillow as it allowed them to assume a comfortable position in bed that helps keep their airways open. Nevertheless, for these sleeping positions, I recommend you talk to your primary care physician besides buying a good pillow.
