Body pillows are a type of pillow which is gaining in popularity. A body pillow supporting the whole body is recommended by many for stomach sleepers and for pregnant women sleeping on their sides. A stomach sleeper can support the chest high enough that the head does not have to turn as far to enable breathing. Many side sleepers also like body pillows, since they can be used instead of toppers on mattresses that are too firm.
Body pillows, such as the one by Snuggle-Pedic, may also help with sleep apnea and digestive disorders.
Shredded Memory Foam
Shredded memory foam, such as in the Snuggle-Pedic, can be repositioned in the pillow for the best support. It is the filling in five of the seven top memory foam pillows on Amazon. The uneven edges of the foam catch and hold, so the pillow keeps its preferred shape longer – at least this is the case with the Snuggle-Pedic shredded foam pillows.
Shredded memory foam (SMF) is often called a “down alternative” because of the way it conforms to the sleeper, but does not go flat as down does. Also, the memory foam is hypoallergenic, safe for persons with feather-and-down allergies. Other advantages of SMF are no feather shafts or down “needles” poking through, no loose down or feathers floating around the bed and bedroom, and no barely-breathable tightly-woven ticking to restrict airflow.
The Kool-Flow cover has micro-vents to optimize airflow into the pillow. The shredded memory foam lets even more air through than ventilated solid foam. This keeps the memory foam pillow from getting too warm, a frequent complaint about molded or cut-shape memory foam pillows. Additionally, the pumping action of body movement that accelerates airflow through ventilated foam is enhanced with shredded foam.
In the SLTD comparison of the top five memory foam pillow brands, four of them use rayon from bamboo in the cover fabric. Three of these have the bamboo rayon in blends ranging from 25% in the Malouf Z Zoned to 43% in the Snuggle-Pedic pillows (By the way: Xtreme Comfort makes their Kool-Flow cover under license from Relief-Mart, the parent company of Snuggle-Pedic). The Italian 6 Inch description just says “rayon from bamboo,” but this is the top panel, with polyester microsuede on the back panel.
Made in the U.S.A.
The Snuggle-Pedic Shredded Memory Foam Body Pillow is entirely U.S.A. made, as are the Xtreme Comfort and Coop Home Goods pillows. The Italian 6 and Classic Brands pillows are imported, and those by Crafty World and Malouf are made in China.
Guarantee and Warranty
The Snuggle-Pedic has a 90-day Guarantee that includes customizing the pillow, adjusting the content to make it firmer or less firm. The warranty is for 20 years, the longest memory foam pillow warranty.
