Advanced Performance Pilllow by Bedgear : For the best sleep recovery! #giftguide


balance Bedgear pillow

A pillow is such a necessary object. Without one, I would never be able to get a good night’s sleep. And with an uncomfortable one — I toss and turn most of the night.  The problem was, I just had no idea there were pillows out there that could be bought based on my own particular sleep style. How could I not know this? When Bedgear asked if I’d like to try one of their new pillows from the Dusk, Dawn or Night line — of course I said yes. The pillow(s) I had been using were awful.

You might know what I’m talking about, two or three cheap pillows that you smoosh and try to fluff and fold and struggle with just to get comfy. Yeah… so not fun every night. I was surprised when I was asked to fill out a short pillow fitting questionnaire about my sleep habits before having my pillow sent over. But, Bedgear knows what they’re doing because the Balance Hybrid Pillow for Multi Position Sleepers that they paired with me is no less than the most amazing pillow I’ve ever had – no joke.

The attention to detail that the questionnaire provides means that when you buy a Bedgear pillow, you are getting as close to a custom pillow as you can. This pillow was meant for me, I tell ya! 

You see, Bedgear knows that sleep is essential to staying healthy so they strive to provide the best performance-based sleep products for active people (like us moms!) to get the maximum recovery from our nighttimes. Whether you are a back sleeper, stomach sleeper, side sleeper or multi-position sleeper like me, Bedgear has the right pillow for you!

Made with high-performance materials and their Dri-Tec® technology, the pillows keep you cool and comfortable while you sleep recover by dissipating heat and wicking moisture away. The Unique Mesh Gussets around the sides of the pillow help bring in optimal airflow for a cooler sleep. And, the self-leveling suspension foam inside the pillow creates a soft, comfortable surface that cradles the neck, shoulders and head for weightless and pressure-free support while you sleep. I had high reservations about liking this pillow, I’m so used to trying to sleep on a mound of pillows, but wow what a difference! After a couple of weeks, I know that this one pillow is all I need. I have less tension in my neck and I have found that I fall asleep so much quicker than I used to!

The only bad thing about my new pillow is that I feel totally guilty that I have one and hubby doesn’t. Look at his poor sad flat pillows! I guess I know what I need to put on his Holiday Gift List this year!

    I was going to say that I loved their selection of pillows – particularly that they have an extensive selection for multiple position sleepers like me! However, while I was scrolling down I saw all those comments about the dri-tech and now I need to look into that! That sounds very interesting for those who go to bed cold but wake up in the middle of the night feeling like a baked potato!
