Among the Top-Rated

The Hypoallergenic Shredded Memory Foam Pillow by Xtreme Comforts (XC) is one of four equivalent pillows among the top-rated memory foam pillows on Amazon. The other two are the Hypoallergenic Premium Adjustable Loft Pillow by Coop Home Goods, the Ultra Luxury Pillow by Snuggle-Pedic, and another one by XC, the Slim Hypoallergenic Pillow (a slimmer version of the first one). Considering the ratings of these four models on Amazon, one of them must be the best memory foam pillow.

Features

Made in USA         Certipur-US logo

Features shared by these top-rated memory foam pillows are:

  • Fillings of shredded memory foam.
  • Bamboo-sourced rayon in the covers.
  • The whole pillow can be machine washed and dried.
  • All three are made in the USA.
  • The memory foam is certified by CertiPUR-US as free from toxic materials.

The Snuggle-Pedic and Coop Home Goods pillows have two related features not in the Xtreme Comforts models –

  • A liner inside the zippered cover, which can be removed and washed.
  • Amount of filling can be adjusted to make the pillow softer or firmer.

The Pillow

The Hypoallergenic Shredded Memory Foam Pillow is the Xtreme Comforts pillow with the second-highest number of total reviews and of verified customer reviews (VCRs), but not by very much (as of 11/20/2017 it was 2,751 and 2,015 VCRs), which seems to indicate that more were sold of the Ortho-Seat Coccyx Seat Cushion.

The Xtreme Comforts Hypoallergenic SMF Pillow is a head pillow for bed use. It is available in three sizes: King (18” x 33” x 7”), Queen (18” x 26” x 7”), and Standard (17” x 23” x 7”). The pillow is filled with shredded regular memory foam. The price of a Queen-size pillow is $54.97.

The Hypoallergenic Shredded Memory Foam Pillow by Xtreme Comforts is covered by the KoolFlow knit cover with micro-vents for extra breathability. This is the same cover material used on Snuggle-Pedic pillows, which is licensed to Xtreme Comforts by Snuggle-Pedic’s parent company, Relief-Mart. This fabric is a blend of 43% bamboo-derived rayon, 56.4% polyester, and .06% spandex.

The outer cover and the liner can be zipped open to adjust the amount of shredded memory foam inside. The cover can be removed and washed, and the entire pillow can be laundered.
