Don't Buy It Until We Try It: My Pillow

Posted: Updated:

It doesn't matter if you have foam or feather pillow, with heavy use, they break down, leaving you with a soar neck and a flat pillow.  Well, there may be a pillow that never breaks down and provides maximum comfort and support. 

With lots of travelers staying at the Hampton Inn many pillows are used.

"The synthetic tends to break down a little more easily than the feather and a lot of times, it's based on personal preferences," says Hampton Inn manager Amanda Shappell.

While the hotel is only a year old, they regularly have to replace pillows.  With hope that they provide comfort and support for guests. We decided to try out My Pillow.

Opening up the box proved to be quite a challenge.  After several minutes, we were finally able to check out My Pillow.

"It's got a nice weight to it, like your pretty much standard synthetic pillow," says Shappell.

But, something just didn't feel quite right to Shappell.

"It feels to a degree kind of like lumpy," says Shappell.  "There's more of a broken up fiber than some synthetics where it's more solid."

As we placed My Pillow next to the foam pillow the hotel currently uses, you'll notice there's a size difference even though they are supposed to be the same size. 

"According to our standards, if a pillow no longer stands up and stands straight, the fibers aren't any good in it anymore," says Shappell.  "And, when you see it kind of like break apart or folds over, it's usually a sign that the fibers aren't as good.  So, this would be one that we would already wonder about."

While we weren't impressed with the initial appearance of My Pillow, it was finally time to try out.

Shappell says, "How does it feel?  It's got nice support, but your head definitely goes down into it."

Watch how far My Pillow sinks in compared to a regular foam pillow.  Not exactly what they advertised on TV.

We just got done trying out My Pillow.  And, while the appearance doesn't look much different, My Pillow already feels flat. 

So, I think I'm going to save my money for a good foam pillow.  In the meantime, I'll just stick to a traditional feather pillow.  So, this week's "Don't Buy It, Until We Try It," earns a thumbs down.
