Sleep Number ® Pillowology ® Inner Core
I received my king size down inner core and outer shell Pillowology pillow a few days ago. I finally tried it out for the first time last night. I was a little worried while I was in the store that the pillow might be a little to high and to fluffy. Well, that is not the case at all! The pillow is ridiculously flat. I was wondering if I possibly received the wrong pillow because it is completely different than the one I tried in the store. I am really disappointed.

The manager of my local Sleep number store told me this would be the perfect pillow for me, and the one in the store wasn't flat and had great support. I was disappointed to find that when mine came in, I'd have to separate it and fluff it in the dryer every night, only to have it go flat again halfway through the night. If only it stayed fluffed, it would be the perfect pillow!

For the price I think these pillows are ridiculously small for a standard size pillow. Bought standard size pillows from sleep number in the past and that pillow is bigger! Giving our 4 pillows we bought to our daughters. Very poor sis quality. Very disappointed.

Finally Wore Them Out After 5 Years
We have *loved* our Sleep Number pillows. I'm here reviewing this product because it's finally time to replace them after nightly use and regular washing (at least 6 times per year). After 5 years, they've finally worn out. We got the memory foam inserts and the down alternative shell. I actually think that the inserts still have some life in them. Even if we replace both components, it will have been money very well spent. And would I recommend them? Yes! I've recommended them multiple times since purchasing. My family gave them to each other as gifts one Christmas. :)

Down Alternative Core Needs Improvement
The "Pillowology" concept is a great one, with a quality outer "shell" that lets you select and replace the inner cores. While the shell/case components are of a very high quality, the down alternative core that I selected did not hold up. Within just a couple months, the core had broken down to virtually nothing (as another reviewer correctly stated, it could be rolled into a ball). I am going to try one of the other cores and see if I get better results. The down alternative just didn't work for me.

I have paid over $100 for pillows of all kinds in the past. I start out on my back but am a side sleeper. I like a soft pillow but with neck support. I've always had pillow issues. Either they are too high, flatten out; there's always something and I awaken exhausted each and every night from trying to get my head comfortable. I recently bought a down outer with the silver inner core. I love it. I think I found the perfect pillow as last night I didn't have to rearrange my pillow once. It is so comfortable. Thank you Sleep Number.

the pillow does go flat
i like a very firm pillow. After a long and hard decision to purchase a sleep number bed, my husband and I tried out some pillows. I like this inner pillow at first, but couple months later, my head is flat and it feels like i go down to the bed when laying on it. i am so disappointed because of the money that we spent and plus that we love our bed. Confused if i should try another one!

Create your own headache
We bought the sleep number bed and pillows in November. Since then I have been fighting with pillows. I started with the contour memory foam it was ok, but still not comfortable, switched to standard memory foam even worse didn't sleep at all. Went back in had a pillow consult we settled with the create your own down fill and the extra firm foam insert. The first night amazing I finally slept second night the same, by the 3rd night I started getting up to rotate my pillow by 5 days my super firm pillow could be crumpled into a ball because the firmness went away. Called them said it was a defect sent me a new core, tried it out first night was ok, but by the second night it was back to a crumpled ball. Decided to take both "firm" inserts and put them inside the pillow. Sleep one amazing, sleep two amazing, I thought I finally got it right, by the 3rd night I was up switching my pillow around, and fluffing it in the middle of the night. The 4th night I wasn't sleeping again, and have been attempting to sleep on the couch.
The customer service has been amazing, and wonderful they do want to make you sleep better, but I am not sure what is up with this product that it just can't stay firm. I don't know why I am having these problems over and over. My husband picked one pillow and has slept great since we bought it. I don't have an abnormally large head so I am not sure why the pillows I choose break down so fast.
The bed has been great when I have been able to sleep in it. I just wish the firm pillow would stay firm and not break down in a week, I could understand breaking down 6 months, a year and so on but not a week.
I wonder if anyone else has this issue, but doesn't say anything. I really wish that it could just stay perfect the way it was the first night.
