    I like this! My first Select Comfort pillows. I got one soft for sleeping (I was used to down so I like soft) and one in medium for propping. I have them covered with the wonderful cool pillow protectors and am very happy! May 16, 2014
    Surprised to read the bad reviews I have had these pillows for quite a few years, at least 5, and have not had the problems described by others. We wash and dry our pillows in our Bosch Nexxt washer and dryer regularly and have not noticed any reduction in loft. The reason I am writing this review is because my daughter called today to find out what kind of pillows they were so she could get some. When I checked the website I found these bad reviews. I can't explain why others have had problems. Maybe it is just a matter of caring for them properly. February 14, 2014
    Trial Period is Too Short i bought two King pillows in medium firmness for my wife for Christmas. She gets neck pains while she sleeps and has been looking for a good pillow for a while. She received them at Christmas and put them on our bed in early January. In late January, they were starting to swish down and not offer much support. Called today and we missed the 30 day trial period, so no return or partial credit. I think for $100 pillows the return period should be longer. Going to order two firm pillows and try them out with a time clock running, so we can return if we do not love them. February 6, 2014
    Pillow Flattens Quickly I've purchased 2 Down Alternative pillows on separate occasions and both in the medium height. I've had headaches throughout my life, and most have occurred in the mornings after I wake. These down alternative pillows are the most comfortable pillows I've used and they have helped me wake up in the mornings without headaches. That being said, I believe the down alternative filling is made of poor quality and does not hold its plushness well at all. I bought my first pillow and had to buy a replacement after a year. Roughly 9 months after, the second pillow flattened and once again, I had to purchase a THIRD pillow. Though I made the switch to the down alternative Pillowology pillow, I found that the Pillowology pillow lost its plushness in less than a year as well. The pillows were all very lofty when I first purchased them, however, they quickly flattened. This leads me to believe that the down alternative filling doesn't last very long and that I'd have to replace the pillow every 9-12 months. Though I am disappointed with the quality of the product and it's inability to withstand any wear and tear, the pillow is comfortable which is why I've purchased 3 of them. I can't recommend this pillow as it has poor value for someone who is looking for a comfortable and long lasting pillow. February 3, 2014
    Regular pillow just more expensive I purchased the down alternative, medium firm, same as "firm" pillow in today's on line description; 3 sections, a little over a year ago. I tried it in the store and it was very comfortable and supportive and the sales person assured me it was the best pillow for side/back sleepers, and that it would retain its comfort/loft over time. That was not true. The pillow began to slowly flatten out in about 3 months. I kept it covered with two pillowcases so it would not become soiled and only used it at night to sleep on or with another pillow, the other pillow on the bottom, when reading in bed. I never washed the pillow because I did not want to put my personal pillow into a commercial, public washer. Today, I looked up the 5 yr warranty and as expected, it does not cover "loft." The on line representative's only recommendation was to wash the pillow in a commercial washer, even though Sleep Number says to wash the pillow as infrequently as possible. This is not one of the company's most expensive pillows and since I received a 50% discount when I purchased it, I can't really complain. However the fact is this pillow is really just an ordinary pillow that starts out well, but will have to be replaced within 6 months to 1 year, like any pillow from a big box store or regular department store. It just costs more in the beginning, so I personally, would hesitate to buy one of Sleep Numbers more expensive pillows incase they too are just regular but pricey. And yes, the warranty does cover things like the seams, but I have never purchased a pillow that had bad seams or problems with construction; it's the loft, comfort, and support that I'm concerned about and for me, this pillow was not worth the price.

    All of our pillows are not compressed and not air locked into our packaging. They may expand when released from the packaging, but they do not need air exposure to fill out to their fullest.

    To see and feel our pillows, you can always visit your local Sleep Number store!

    Answer: 
    No. When purchased the pillow was plump, and it stayed the same when taken out of the bag. It was very comfortable and I really liked it when trying it out in the store. I have had my pillow for just over a year. It begin to lose its level of comfort within 2-3 months and now feels flat like a much cheaper pillow.

    Answer: 
    Hi Blab, I'm happy to answer this question for you! I've listed the cleaning instructions for your Down Alternative pillows below for your convenience, but I also want to let you know that the best way to maximize the life of your pillow is to refrain from washing it whenever possible. I suggest ordering a quality pillow protector for your pillow to prevent it from getting dirty or stained and washing that protector when it needs to be cleaned. If you have any questions or want to order a pillow protector from us, please copy the link below and paste it into your browser from 7 AM to 11 PM CT so our Live Chat team can assist you.

    To clean your pillow, please machine wash using a commercial-size, front-loading washer; wash and rinse in warm water with mild detergent. To dry it, please Tumble dry at regular heat. Repeat this cycle as needed until the fill is completely dry. Remove the pillow promptly once it’s dry.

    Happy shopping, Blab!

    Answer: 
    I find it amusing that the answer from the sleep number expert is to wash your pillow as infrequently as possible. I have owned my pillow (down alternative, medium-firm; 3 sections) for just over a year. I always use two pillow cases on it to prevent it from becoming soiled. The pillow looks fresh and does not smell; it is not soiled, but the loft is gone and the pillow is not comfortable to sleep on now. When I asked a sleep number representative what to do to restore the loft, they told me to wash it (accompanied by the same information about using a commercial washer, using tennis balls in the dryer, etc.) to hopefully restore the loft. The pillow comes with a 5 yr warranty but that's only for pillow construction, such as seams; the loft is not included. Basically, this is just a standard pillow that cost a little more, but will have to be replaced within 6 months to 1 year.

    I am a side sleeper for the most part and would like to know what density I should purchase for a down alternative pillow. I always wake up with neck pain and would really like to purchase the right type of pillow that will support my head and neck and let me wake up pain free if possible.
    Thanks.

    Hello, Mandmmagic! My name is Andy and I work for Sleep Number. I can gladly answer your question referring to our pillows.

    Sleep Number offers a wide variety of different pillow types, firmness, and specifications. Finding the correct pillow for you can be a very fun experience! We do not recommend one specific pillow or density for everyone, since every sleeper is different and has different comfort levels, but usually a medium to medium firm is what our previous side sleepers have purchased. In order to gain the proper comfort, you can chat with a Live Chat Representative on our website, test the pillows at your local Sleep Number store, or even use our "Create Your Perfect Pillow" tool, which pieces together an individualized pillow from our Pillowology product line!

    Hi Sideways, thanks for visiting our site! We carry a variety of pillows that are great for side sleepers, but it can be a little hard to find out which one’s right for you just by looking at them. The best way to find a good pillow is to visit your local Sleep Number store and try a few to see which one feels most comfortable. If you don't have time to visit a store or you don't have one nearby, your next best course is to talk with our Live Chat team so we can find out what you need in a pillow and suggest one or two that meet your needs.

    Is there a way to whiten this pillow?

    My husband is a night sweater, so his pillow has some yellowing despite the fact that it's covered with the protector and the pillow case. I do wash the pillow case weekly, but was worried the protector night wear out too fast if I washed it that often, so I wash it monthly. Also thinking of getting a water proof pillow protector for his pillow, though might that cause him to sweat more? Help, please!

    Answer: 
    Hi NJ, thanks for asking! There isn't an easy way to whiten your pillow once it gets dirty, but we definitely have a product that can help protect it from any further stains. Our Zip and Block Pillow Protector will provide the moisture protection your husband's pillow needs and can also help extend its life. Adding this product to your pillow could make it less breathable, so you may want to consider placing one of our In Balance pillow covers over the protector to help compensate for that.

    You can find our Zip and Block Pillow Protector on our site using the search function or by copying the follow link and pasting it into your web browser.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Hi Tomo, thanks for giving me a chance to answer this for you! Many stomach sleepers prefer to use softer pillows for sleeping to keep their head more level with the rest of their bodies. This can reduce strain on the neck and shoulders and help you sleep more comfortably. Comfort is a very personal thing, however, and what most find comfortable may or may not be right for you. If you have any more questions about our pillows or want some help choosing one that's right for you, please get in touch with us directly by copying the link below and pasting it into your web browser anytime from 7 AM to 11 PM CT and we'll be happy to help you find a pillow that will meet your needs.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Hi Keerng, thanks for taking the time to post your question about our Down Alternative Pillow. I'm happy to help answer this for you.

    As a general rule, we find that back sleepers generally prefer a firmer density pillow in order to receive the neck support they need to sleep comfortably and wake feeling refreshed. We think it's important to note, however, that everyone sleeps a bit differently, so a firm pillow density may not be the best fit for your unique needs.

    The best way to find the bedding that will fit your needs best is to stop by your local store and test our bedding out. If you need any help finding your nearest store, you can copy the link below and paste it into your web browser from 7AM-11PM CST seven days a week to connect with our Live Chat Agents who can locate your closest store for you in no time.
