But I don't think that any other review has had me this excited in a long time, not only because it's an amazing product that I have had my eye on for quite a while, but mostly because it's changed my life.
I'm not even joking about that. Let me tell you how.
First I have to thank the people at Sleep Number for this wonderful opportunity. These are not cheap pillows, but I have neck and shoulder issues and have wanted one for so long, but really couldn't justify it in my budget.
Now knowing how great it's worked for me, I think it's well worth it's price.
Last week I received my pillow in the mail. It came in the afternoon, and I tell you, I was SO ready for bed just to try it out.
But before I tell you about my experience, let me tell you about Sleep Number and their pillows.
Our exclusive Sleep Number® AirFitTM Adjustable Pillow combines the support and comfort of air with adjustability, to provide the most personalized sleep experience possible. You can adjust the AirFitTM Pillow based on your individual sleeping position, size and shape. The AirFitTM Pillow can change with you as your sleep needs change. European White Goose Down surrounds the air chamber for the ultimate luxury. Resilient down clusters for exceptionally high loft and improved support for maximum comfort. Hypoallergenic down is free of dust and allergy-causing impurities. Extra-soft 300-thread-count 100% Egyptian cotton cover. Easy to use – pillow self-inflates with the twist of a dial! Note: This pillow provides a firmer/more supportive sleeping experience than a traditional down pillow. ~from Sleep Number website.
The AirFit™ Pillow is available in three options so customers can choose based on sleep preference:
CoolFit™ Foam: Gel technology works within memory foam to create a cooler, more comfortable sleeping experience
Memory Fiber: Memory fiber provides improved air circulation to help prevent humidity and heat buildup
European White Goose Down: Resilient down clusters for exceptionally high loft and improved support for maximum comfort
I chose the Memory Fiber.
Now let me tell you a little story.
Before I got married, I used to do aerobics every single day, as well as strength training at the gym.
One day, as I was working my back muscles on the machine, I was distracted and when it came time to slowly release the handle back to the top, I for some unknown reason let go with my left hand and not my right, so the handle flew to the top and jerked my right arm/shoulder up.
I felt immense pain and for a week or two couldn't really do anything. Stupidly enough, I didn't go to the doctor, just attributed it to a pulled muscle.
It's now been 17 years later and my right side has never been the same. I tend to get pain on my right shoulder blades, shoulder, neck etc.
Sleeping has been horrible and I guess I've just gotten used to not being able to lay on my right shoulder or waking up with neck and shoulder pain.
I have tried numerous pillows, from numerous places, numerous sizes, densities etc. NOTHING has worked.
They're either too flat, or too hard.
When I first received the AirFit Adjustable Pillow, I was excited. Another chance to maybe find the right pillow.
The way this pillow works is simple.
It adjusts to your head and neck for a personalized sleep experience
• Control your own comfort with this adjustable pillow
• Changes with you as your sleep needs change
• Responsive Memory Fiber continually adjusts to your head and neck movements for constant support
It has a twist dial to let air in or out of the pillow and it self inflates.
I lay on the pillow, let it adjust to my head and then closed the dial.
I will tell you, that the first night was a bit uncomfortable for me because this pillow is a little harder than the usual pillows I'm used to. Or rather, than the CHEAP pillows I'm used to.
I messed around with the dial a little more and by the second night it was much better. I am now going on the 4th night and I can tell you that it's changed my life.
I was never able to lay on my right side for longer than five minutes without my shoulder hurting and my arm going numb, so I spent all night tossing and turning.
What I'm about to say is HUGE for me. I have now slept for two nights in a row, on my right side, without even moving all night long and I have had the best sleep in years, not to mention that my shoulder doesn't hurt, my neck is not stiff and I don't wake up in pain.
It is A.MA.ZING!
I don't say that lightly. And of course I can only speak for myself and my experience but this pillow is a miracle worker for me.
I will never sleep with another pillow, I will never waste money on cheap pillows, this baby is going with me everywhere I go.
Thank you Sleep Number for changing my life!
