We all know that a good night's sleep is essential to recharging our minds and bodies. Sleep can help us regulate our emotions, improve our immune systems, and promote cell restoration and repair. However, it can be difficult for the body to work its magic if you suffer from aches and pains or run uncomfortably warm at night.

Specialty pillows, like the BedStory Cooling Memory Foam Pillow, help troubled sleepers get the rest they need. The gel-infused memory foam pillow supports cervical alignment while keeping sleepers from over-heating during the night.

Right now, Amazon shoppers can save 15 per cent on the top-rated pillow and take it home for just $51.

The details

The BedStory Memory Foam Pillow is a gel-infused memory foam pillow that promotes cervical spinal alignment to help you get a better night's sleep. The pillow's unique gel-infused construction aids in regulating body temperature, preventing night sweats, and keeping users cool and comfortable during the night.

The pillow is designed with slow-rebound memory foam to gently cushion and contour the neck, making it a comfortable choice for stomach, side, and back sleepers. It has a removable outer cover that's machine wash-friendly and is both CertiPUR-US and OEKO-TEX certified.

What people are saying

With more than 2,100 reviews and an average rating of 4.3 stars, Amazon shoppers say the BedStory memory foam pillow is "very supportive" and "better" than standard cotton pillows.

It provides "phenomenal comfort" while "still feeling very supportive," writes one shopper. Your head feels "'locked in' yet coddled," adding that the pillow's airflow and breathability make it "so much better" than standard cotton pillows; "it's like a new world."

According to another shopper, the BedStory pillow stays "noticeably cooler" than others, writing it "doesn't feel cold" but also "doesn't get the hot feeling" that other pillows do.

A third shopper says it's "hands-down the best pillow" they've tried. When you lay in bed at night, you can "feel the support" of the pillow "without the pain," they write.

Despite high ratings for comfort, support, and softness, some users found the pillow too "hard and stiff" for their liking.

One reviewer said it's "so stiff it hurt," adding that the pillow felt "hard and stiff throughout" the night.

It's a "little too high" and "a little too firm," echoed another.

The verdict

If you're looking to try a cooling pillow or trade in your current one for something new, the BedStory Cooling Memory Foam Pillow might be for you. However, while some reviewers say the pillow is "very supportive" and breathable, others find it too "hard and stiff," something to keep in mind when placing your order.
