Is Your Pillow Hurting Your Quality of Sleep?

Disclosure: I received this product for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.


While it may sound crazy, did you know that your current pillow may actually be hurting the quality of your sleep? When many of us think of sleeping, we first look at our mattress and wonder if something may possibly be wrong. I mean, our nice mattress should be making our sleep amazing, right? Don’t get me wrong, a quality mattress, like a memory foam mattress, is key to a good night sleep, but what if you are still having issues sleeping? As crazy as it may sound, your pillows may the problem!

When many of us go to buy pillows, we think about symmetry, cost, and how it may feel with a quick hand test. I mean, a pillow shouldn’t be a investment, right? Well, this is how I used to think until I started dealing with horrible headaches and neck pain. After a bit of a research, we found that the cheap pillows we were buying were the culprit since they didn’t provide enough support for my head, neck, and shoulders. Not only is a good pillow suppose to be comfortable and support you, but keep your body in alignment based on your sleeping position! In many cases, this even means couples are going to need different pillows!

If this sounds overwhelming to you, don’t worry, you aren’t alone. I felt very overwhelmed when I first started research into pillows and wanted to make sure I purchased the right pillow the first time, especially since good pillows aren’t as cheap as the old ones we used to purchase. Luckily, the makers of our mattress, Novosbed, made the selection super easy with three high quality memory foam pillows – the Contour, Opus, and Adagio pillows!

Novosbed pillow

Novosbed Opus Pillows (Back, Side, & Stomach Sleepers)

Are you someone who is restless throughout the night and have problems finding that ‘perfect’ position? If so, we think the Novosbed Opus pillow is the perfect choice for you. This pillows provides excellent support for the neck and head for side, stomach, and even back sleepers. It also easily adjusts to your head throughout the night, making sure you are constantly supported throughout the night. This is my personal favorite pillow and has drastically improved my quality of sleep. Currently, you can buy the Opus for $139.

Novosbed Adagio Pillows (Side Sleepers)

The Novosbed Adiago Pillow was design to give the best support and comfort possible for side sleepers. This memory foam pillow delivers contour -comforting support to the neck and head, while giving a medium soft level of firmness. With this luxurious pillow, you will enjoy pure comfort at a fraction of the price of a Tempur-Pedic pillow. As a generally side sleeper, my husband prefers this pillows and sleeps like a log throughout the night. Currently, you can buy the Novosbed Adagio for $149.

Novosbed Contour Pillows (Back, Side, & Stomach Sleepers)

Looking for a high quality, memory foam pillow that is perfect for any budget? If so, we think you will love the Novosbed Contour Pillow. This pillow is never too firm or soft, and holds its shape for years, giving you a great sleeping experience. Currently, this pillow sells for $109.


So, why get your pillows at Novosbed? All of their pillows are made allergen resistant, dust mite resistant, and come with a 3 year warranty, and let’s not forget their awesome zero-risk guarantee so you can try them for yourself! What I personally loved the most, however, was that their pillows are 50% less expensive than comparable pillows on the market, allowing you to buy two high quality pillows at amazing prices. Personally, I can’t imagine paying $350 for a pillow, how about you? If you want top quality at prices everyone can afford, buy your pillows and mattress at Novosbed!

    I sleep with an obus pillow because I have back and neck problems. It seems to do the job and helps with both issues.

    No I cannot imagine paying $350 for a pillow. The Novosbed pillows sound great, I’d like to try the Novosbed Opus Pillow. Thank you for sharing this review.

    Wow I bet this would solve a lot of the bad physical feelings I have in the morning such as a stiff neck, headache and my back hurting. It sounds like the Novosbed Contour Pillow would be the perfect one for me. I’m sure the price is good for what it would help me with but at this time I just couldn’t afford it but I’m thinking maybe I could suggest someone putting it on their next year’s Christmas list for me LOL

    I need a new pillow, thanks for this review. I guess I would need the Novosbed Adiago Pillow because I’m a side sleeper.

    I find it hard to get a good nights rest every night. I’ve tried mattress toppers & memory foam pillows, but nothing seems to help. The Novosbed Opus or Contour Pillow sounds right up my alley. A bit expensive, but if it works, it will be well worth it!

    I never knew that pillows effected the sleep quality. I would love to give one of these a test run!

    Think I’m a back and side sleeper. Not sure which one I would like the best – the Opus or the Contour.

    I’m a side sleeper and I could use the Novosbed Adiago Pillow. I really like that there is a zero-risk guarantee so you can try them for yourself.

    This is very interesting about the pillows. I never really paid any attention to them, just buying new ones when mine went flat! I will have to check these out.

    I always have a hard time finding just the right pillow. You are right, there are so many things to take into consideration. They aren’t cheap either if you do buy a good one. Thank you so much for sharing this

    I’ve never heard of Novusbed pillows. I would love to sleep like a log as your husband does. My husband does too. Not me ever.

    Having a perfect sleep is indeed a blessing. And the bad quality of pillow can definitely hurt the quality of sleep. It is important to consider the pillows we use for sleeping in order to get a perfect sleep.
