Good Nights Sleep.



As you know from a previous post, I suffer from back problems.  Getting comfortable at night can be hard, especially when my back is playing up.  I use two pillows and for a while they helped me to lie in the correct position but quickly lost shape meaning I was back to square one.  Until now.
I recently got a Hypoallergenic pillow from Exceptional Sheets.  For me a pillow has got to be nice and plump but not too big and it can't be too soft or too firm.  I know that makes me sound fussy but we are all different in what we like and need for a good nights sleep

When my pillow arrived, in a large box, I was quite surprised and was expecting it to be too big but to my delight it really is the perfect size for me.




Me being me could not wait to try it out, so I went for a nap.  I only needed this one pillow. It is perfect for me, not too soft and not too firm! Just perfect.

I have used it for the last couple of nights and I have noticed a massive difference.  When I wake up I am not all stiff and sore like I used to be.  My posture when sleeping has improved and the pillow supports my head and neck too.  I have also noticed I not sneezing and coughing as much as I used to when lying down now which is a massive bonus!

If you are looking for a pillow that will guarantee you a good night sleep then I recommend the Hypoallergenic pillow from Exceptional Sheets.

To buy your own pillow it can be purchashed by clicking the link below.

  1. I've been impressed by the difference a pillow made to me. I don't have a bad back, but I was waking with back ache and had blamed the mattress. Since changing the pillow it's happened less often which is great. Hope this one carries on working for you.

    1. I have to admit I did blame my mattress at first but when I flipped it over etc and it continued to happen and with my pillows losing their fullness I knew I had found the culprits lol. I am glad you also found a pillow that has worked for you! x

  3. A good pillow is the key to a good night's sleep, in my opinion. I'm glad this one worked well for you. I also have a special mattress for my back that has a memory foam topper and some strong, smaller springs underneath. Comfiest bed I've ever slept in.

  4. Oh wow, I know how important a good pillow (and mattress!) is and have learnt through time that you should never scrimp on things you sleep on!

  13. That's really interesting, I find it really hard to get comfortable at night...one pillow is not enough, two pillows give me a neck ache, glad you are getting a more comfortable sleep now.

  14. Thank you :) I used to sleep with 3 pillows then dropped it to 2 but with this pillow i only need one and its really supportive. Neck ache is horrible, I hope you find comfort soon x

  18. I really need to get on top of sorting the pillows out in this house. My 2 year old has been really coughing at night and after reading your post i have a feeling it could be something to do with her pillow? Maybe an allergy.
    Glad the pillow helped, great review xx

    1. It could be her pillow. I have noticed a difference in my allergies (I have dodgy sinuses caused by dust etc) and as much as my room is clean, it is, I was still having trouble. Now I have changed pillows it has calmed down! I am glad you like the review x

  21. I've been saying for months that I need to buy new pillows because ours are flat and lumpy now. I have a terrible bad back as well and wake quite a few times each night with pain.
    I'll have to go and check these pillows out :)

    1. I think we all forget about replacing pillows, so easy to forget about. I hope that your back pain goes away, i know how sore that can be. x
