Tempur-Pedic's TEMPUR-Contour Side-to-Side Pillow  Holiday Gift guide 

Sleep such a wonderful thing.  Unless of course you aren't getting any.  I have chronic sleep insomnia, there are nights when I lay down at 10PM and by 6AM I am still wide awake and in tears out of frustration.
I tried everything to get rid of the insomnia, sadly after months I'm afraid it is here to stay.  It wasn't until I started to take medicine that I began to sleep again.  Trust me it really was a last resort.
The number 1 rule, the one thing I have to do to even make sleep somewhat of an option is to make myself comfortable.
That means having my room at the right temperature, turning off lights, keeping pets off the bed (Getting dirt on my sheets drives me nuts), speaking of sheets I make sure mine are soft and not stiff and finally the pillow.  I'm going to be laying on that thing for several hours I want to make sure it is beyond comfortable!
So I asked around and found out that Tempur-Pedic offers some pretty top of the line pillows.  
I was fortunate enough to be able to review a new Tempur-Pedic's TEMPUR-Contour Side-to-Side Pillow  I am so a side sleeper.  My left or right doesn't matter to me.  I wish I could sleep on my back it would help with my sinus issues, but I don't.  I blame my kids I use to be a back sleep, until my doctor said laying on your left side during pregnancy will help blood circulation for the baby.

Okay enough about me and more about the pillow.
Lets talk about what everyone looks for in a pillow!

Size:  This is a Queen size pillow so I think it is a perfect size.  I can roll from my left to right without my head following off the edge.  The thickness is perfect.  I think I read it is 4.75 inches, so thick enough to give me neck support without having my head to high up.

Feel:  So soft!  The day my pillow arrived I was sick.  I didn't want to use my pillow that day, but I couldn't help not taking it out and feeling it.  It is made with 100% premium knit and you can so tell when you run your hand along it.  The cover is removable so if it would get it dirty no need to get upset, simply remove and wash :).  As someone who really does toss and turn all night I need something gentle on my face.  I can say beyond a doubt the Tempur-Pedic contoured material is just that.  

Comfort:  Okay I have no clue what is inside this pillow, but all I can say is, wow!  It is soft, but firm if that makes sense.  The middle is really soft, but the edges are kinda firm to support my neck, shoulders and head.  I love how it works natural with the shape of my body when I sleep on my side.  Again the material really adds to the comfort of the pillow.

Quality:  I have not had this pillow long, but I can say from the time I have used it, it seems to be made of high quality and really durable material.  I can see myself having this pillow for a very long time.

Okay so now we know it is comfortable, durable and the perfect size. 
 Now lets talk about the cons....
This pillow may cause some arguments....  
You have no clue how many times I came into my room and had to yell at my hubby to give me back my pillow!!  The man steals it at least once a week lol
When I take it back he tells me I am greedy, pillow hog.
So yes I would suggest if you are married go ahead and buy two right away otherwise their may be a real "pillow fight." :)

I may still suffer from sleep insomnia, but at least now I can do so comfortable.

The side to side sleeper is only one option the offer a pillow for back sleepers, side-to-back sleepers and several other options.  Not everyone sleep alike so it makes sense to have pillows that aren't exactly alike.  


  1. I've ALWAYS wanted a Tempur-Pedic Pillow. I often have trouble getting to sleep at night and I think this would be a huge help. I'll definitely be adding this to my wish list <3

  2. I have never heard of Tempur-Pedic Pillow before, but it sounds like something I need in my life.

  3. I heard of these Tempur Pedic mattress and pillows and never tried one! I bet I would have an even better night sleep with one of these!

  4. I've heard excellent things about tempur-pedic before, but I've never tried their products! We could all use a good night's sleep and good bedding is always conducive to that!

  5. This sounds like heaven!! I need the perfect pillow in order to have a good night's sleep!

  6. I'm a side sleeper, too, and I've heard so many good things about Tempur-Pedic. I need to try this one out. I hate buying a pillow that I think will be great and it flattens as soon as I lay my head on it.

  7. I need a good pillow. I'm not a good sleeper and I tend to have back problems. I think a good pillow is helpful for both of those things.

  8. I sleep pretty well now. It took me years, but eating right has made a big improvement on my sleeping. A good pillow also works wonders!!

  9. I really need to try one of these. I'm on my third pillow in seven months. I can't seem to find the right one.

  10. That must be hard. I love to sleep. I have wanted a TempurPedic mattress forever! Im so glad the pillow helps you.

  11. Well this pillow sounds lovely. It sounds like it's really ergonomic which is exactly what I need.

  12. This sounds like a good pillow. I need a better one as I'm a really bad sleeper and find pillows to usually be the annoyance! - Jeanine

  13. This pillow looks very promising and interesting! I am also a side sleeper and I love hugging my pillow when I sleep, and the more comfortable a pillow is, the sound my sleep is.

  14. I am a stomach sleeper, so I wonder if this would work for me. It sounds just amazing!

  15. I've always wanted to try one of these. They look so comfy, and I could always use a better night's sleep.

  16. I too have always wondered what these were like, I have heard such great things. I might have to bite the bullet and try for myself! :)

  17. This looks liek a really nice comfortable pillow. I sleep on my side now too. Same reason, I was told to sleep on my left side during pregnancy.

  18. Tempur-Pedic Pillow is just great for sleep time! I bought a pillow last week and it gives me good and comfortable sleep time!
