I never though I would like a soft, cushy pillow but I love them! I am finally able to get comfortable. I have disc problems in my neck and I have tried at least 5-10 kinds of pillows from memory foam to neck rolls and I could not find a comfortable spot. These pillows just adhere to the shape of your neck and head giving me a very restful and comfortable sleep. I would highly recommend them!
Several years ago I set out on a quest to find the perfect pillow. It seems to me that if a pillow is so soft that your head ends up on the bed, it’s the same as not having a pillow. I like a firm pillow but I have tested a few that are too firm, which makes me feel like I’m eating celery, in a great pizza restaurant. A pillow should be all happiness and peace.
I now have 20 pillows and 14 of the top 15 are Malouf pillows. Every night I have a pillow festival. I have purchased every pillow I own except this “Zoned Dough Chamomile” pillow which was given to me in exchange for an honest review. After trying it out for a few days, I can see now why they were so confident I’d give it a good review.
If I just picked up this pillow I would be basically unimpressed. It doesn’t seem thick or firm or springy enough. I would have to notice, however, the Tencel mesh cover, which I think is just incredible. I put pillow slips on my pillows, even though Malouf pillows feel better without them, but I have not been able to put a pillow slip on this one yet. I don’t understand what Tencel is but I know if makes for amazing sheets and now it is an incredible covering for two of my pillows.
This “Zoned Dough Chamomile” pillow is different than all my other pillows in that I don’t immediately notice if it is too soft or too firm. It’s like my head just floats on it. It’s hard to describe. It’s almost like it’s not there but head is still cushioned, like it is floating on air. Someone really spent some time engineering this pillow just right. It is quite remarkable. I am impressed. It must be from the future.
I wasn’t sure what to expect with the scent. I don’t even know what a “chamomile scent” is. (I know I can’t say it and had to look it up to spell it.) I wanted to get one because a friend has one and he says loves this particular pillow. The scent for me is unusually pleasant, taking me back to my college days when I was young and immortal and I went hiking in the mountains. It smells like wildflowers to me. Sadly, that benefit is mostly lost on me, however, because now I am old and I use a CPAP machine. (I use the pillow without the machine when I take naps, however, and it is very soothing.)
If you are concerned about how strong the scent will be, don’t worry at all. It comes very lightly scented and then, if you spray it with this tiny magic vial that comes with it, you can make the scent stronger with just a spray or two. (Don’t spray it too much. I did six or seven sprays with my peppermint Malouf pillow and I could smell it 50 feet away for an hour or two.)
I’m trying to find something to criticize about this pillow so this review will have some credibility. I guess my only complaint is that I think this is a mid-loft pillow and it just doesn’t seem thick enough. I got a standard size and I think if I had tested a larger size it would have been thicker and firmer. If you like Malouf pillows and you like a firmer pillow, get a high-loft size, if it is available.
My family thinks I’m crazy to have more than one pillow but I strongly believe that investing in your sleep is something that pays off in a big way. It makes night time such a joy. I have tested out a lot of different pillows now and I think this Chamomile one may be the best one yet. (I have another Malouf pillow I may like better, perhaps just because I can tell it is there.) The competition for the number one slot is fierce. I have found several “perfect pillows” and they are all made by Malouf. You can’t go wrong with this pillow, especially if you feel like falling asleep in a mountain meadow.
I am in bed all the time and needed support yet softness. These 2 pillows fit the bill. The zippered protectors are of fine quality. The pillows are a bit smaller than expected but do not detract from the effectiveness. I highly recommend the pillow for daily or decorative use.
Finally, a firm down pillow! I have searched for a long time for this one. Even made a purchase with another famous manufacturer for a firm pillow that was not firm. I gave it to my husband. The key for purchasing a down pillow is the number of OUNCES in a pillow NOT the fill. Many manufacturers don't even tell you the number of ounces in their pillows. I am so pleased with my purchase .....I even bought another one as a spare. 😊
Very satisfied with this purchase. I tried to find something cheaper - actually bought and returned about 6 pillows from Overstock and wasted a lot of money on return fees - but the cheaper options were not satisfactory for a variety of reasons. I am a side sleeper and need a pillow that is fluffy but goes fairly flat -- does not hold my head up at an unnatural angle. I have been sleeping on this pillow for a couple of weeks now and it's great. There was another one that was good too but it was even more expensive. This pillow is very fluffy but goes down to just the right height.
I have a bit of a bedding addiction. I am constantly buying duvets, pillows, covers, sheets. I seek nothing less than perfection in my night's sleep. Even my SO and friends have commented on how fabulous my bed is. And the highlight of my bed is easily these pillows. They're wonderfully soft--the only reason to buy down, in my opinion--yet they offer a startling amount of support. I've purchased (many) other down pillows in the past (in fact, I used to buy two pillows every year or two--again, addiction), but my quest for the perfect pillow has ended. This is the holy grail.
I can only sleep on down pillows. I get ear aches very easily and a polyester pillow makes my ears warm and hurt. I have been looking for a new down pillow for a long time now, but I have had a hard time finding a firm one to support my neck. This pillow is the perfect replacement. Exactly what I was looking for and need in a pillow. Well worth the price.
not what I expected, but I am not sure what I expected..it was too dense for me. but I kept them anyway as heck these will be options for my pricey clients.. OS could do a way better job on the various descriptions.. like on this one...
