Why an Adjustable Pillow?

Consider the infinite combinations of shape, angle, weight and mass in heads, necks and shoulders that come into play when people lie down to sleep.

Individuals prefer different mattress surfaces, too, which affect how a pillow performs and how comfortable it feels. And factor in any pain problems—such as sore shoulders, pinched neck nerves, arthritis or fibromyalgia.

We sleep in many different positions, moving and changing during the night. We also use pillows in multiple ways—for sleeping, sure, but also for reading, relaxing, and propping.

This is why an adjustable pillow is so useful.

Savvy Rest Adjustable Pillows

For every individual sleeper, all these elements combine in unique ways—so we like to offer customizable pillow comfort. Here’s how our adjustable pillows work.

All Savvy Rest loose-fill pillows come intentionally overstuffed, so you can adjust the fill volume to the height, firmness, or plumpness you find most comfortable.

It’s simple—just four easy steps:

  • Unzip and remove the outer casing.
  • Hold your pillow carefully over a bag to avoid spilling loose fill.
  • Open the inner casing’s corner zipper, and remove handfuls of fill into the bag until you’ve found the perfect height and firmness. Experiment—you can always re-add fill.
  • Rezip the inner casing, then replace and close the outer casing.

Leftover Pillow Fill

You can save the leftover fill in an air-tight bag for later use since you may feel that your pillow needs more fill after sleeping on it for a period of time. Another option is to use the leftover fill to stuff some throw pillows!

How often should I replace my pillow?

We recommend replacing your pillow every 2-3 years, or whenever you feel that your pillow needs a refresh.

Savvy Rest pillows are higher quality and are made to last longer than conventional and synthetic pillows on the market. It’s ultimately a personal preference but we wouldn’t recommend using a pillow for several years at a time to avoid the accumulation of dust and allergens. A pillow may also lose its shape and support over an extended period of time.
