Xtreme Comforts Slim Hypoallergenic Shredded Memory Foam Pillow

 

The Thinner of Two

The 5” high SlimSleeper Shredded Memory Foam Pillow by Xtreme Comforts is the thinner version of their 7” Xtreme Comforts Shredded Memory Foam Pillow. Like the thicker pillow, the SlimSleeper is filled with shredded memory foam and encased in a Kool-Flow knit cover.

The Shredded Memory Foam Advantage

Shredded memory foam (SFM) is more pliable than 1-piece memory foam. Like the solid version, it reacts to both pressure and body heat to conform to a sleeper’s heat to cradle the body – in the case of pillows, to cradle the head. But like a pillow filled with down, it can be shaped to fit the user. Unlike a down pillow, however, a shredded memory foam pillow won’t fall flat. That’s not to say that it won’t depress under a sleeper’s head. After all, it is memory foam, which softens with heat. When the head is lifted from the pillow, the memory foam will resume its original shape.

Just a note: The sister pillow to SlimSleeper, the  Xtreme Comforts Shredded Memory Foam Pillow, can be opened up and the amount of shredded foam adjusted.

The Cover

Like the Snuggle-Pedic, the Xtreme Comforts SlimSleeper has the same Kool-Flow cover as the XC SMF and the Snuggle-Pedic pillows. This blend of polyester, bamboo rayon, and lycra has micro vents knitted in to enhance airflow through the fabric. While they have the same outer cover, the effectiveness of this depends largely on the breathability of the liner (the ticking, or inner cover).  Also, both brands are made in the USA. from top to bottom and use memory foam that is certified by CertiPUR-US as free from toxic chemicals and heavy metals and low on volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Slim Vs. Regular

Xtreme’s slim version gives their customers a chance to get a much thinner and therefore softer feeling pillow that won’t offer the same level as their thicker regular style that is adjustable.
