My in-laws have a Sleep Number bed that is just unspeakably incredible. You can elevate one side, make it softer, make it firmer. The plethora of options that they have in their bed probably outweighs the number of options at some fast food restaurants. Some people like to get order their burger exactly how they want it, well with sleep number you can get your bed exactly how you want it AND so can your spouse at the same time. Before I go any further gushing about the amazingness of Sleep Number beds I will stop and tell you the truth. I can NOT afford one and I don't have one. I may not ever be able to afford one but I was really excited when Sleep Number contacted me and offered to send me a complimentary pillow to review. In lieu of my aforementioned feelings about their beds my response was, " Yes, yes, yes!"
I was able to take a short assessment quiz on the Sleep Number website in order to determine which pillow would be best for me. The quiz results came back that I should try the Down Alternative Inner Core paired with the Silver Outer Shell. Prior to this I had never even heard of a two part pillow. I was more than kind of excited to try it and then more than disappointed when it arrived and my husband stole it. That's right, you heard it correct, my husband straightup nabbed my pillow. This started a serious pillow war. You know...the kind where you race to bed to try to get it first? Yes, we are mature!
He loves it. Claims its the perfect combo of fluff and firm. The directions say you should fluff it every night and occasionally throw it in the dryer. Who knew? I've never dryer fluffed my pillows before. Perhaps thats what you do with fancy pillows? I have never had a pillow that cost more than 20 dollars either so I wouldn't know.
In summary, I don't think that everyone needs a super fancy pillow. We certainly don't have the money right now to be out buying Sleep Number pillows BUT if you can - take the survey, buy yourself a special pillow, my husband says it's worth it.
