The Pillow By SmartSilk Review ~ Choose The Comfort Level That Is Right For You

*We received 2 pillows for review.  No other form of compensation took place.

Pillows are something I thought you could never pick for anyone else.  I always thought they had to choose their own style, size, thickness or thinness.   That was before SmartSilk came up with the Comfort Level Pillows.

SmartSilk has buying a pillow down to a science.  Now, I can buy a pillow for anyone, anytime and always get the correct thickness.

Back Sleeper
People who sleep on their back should have a pillow of low to medium thickness.  This level will maintain a neutral neck position, while anything too low or too high will cause the neck to be out of alignment.  A medium thick pillow will cradle the neck and prevent the head from being thrown too far forward.  It will support the natural curvature of the upper spine and will provide support under your head, neack and shoulders.  SmartSilk recommends adding an additional pillow underneath the knees when you sleep on your back to further help align the spine.

Side Sleeper
Those who sleep on their side should have a pillow of medium to high loft to maintain a neutral neck postion. The thicker pillow will fill in the distance between the ear and the outside shoulder.  Side sleepers need a pillow that will support their head and neck correctly, so that they wake up feeling refreshed and energized. For this to happen, a thicker pillow is necessary to keep your spine in a straight and horizontal line.

Stomach Sleeper
People who sleep on their stomach usually do best with a thinner pillow.  A flatter pillow prevents the person's neck from leaning too far back and causing neck aches.  The pillow is either placed in the typical area between the neck and shoulders ore unthe chest or stomach for support.  The purpose of this positioning is to prevent any lower back pain.  If the pillow is too high, the spine will be forced ito very unnatural positions while you sleep and this can cause both back and neck aches.

Multi-Position Sleeper
People who sleep in two different positions should choose a pillow that best fits the sleep position you find yourself in most of the night.

Here is a chart that will help explain how to find the different comfort levels for different people.

They also have a quiz you can take to find out your perfect comfort level.









My Hubs mentioned just yesterday that since he has been using the SmartSilk Comfort Level 3 Pillow, that he slept all night and felt rested the next day.  That is great since he also uses a breathing machine and this pillow seems to work perfectly with that.

I use the SmartSilk Comfort level 2 since I am a small person and sleep on my back.   I used to think I had to have a thick pillow.  Maybe that is why I was having so many problems with my neck and shoulders.  We will see how that works.  I seem to be sleeping well with it , so.. maybe all this time I was using the wrong pillow.

Here you can see the different lofts in the two pillows.  My Hubs is a Comfort Level 3 which has more loft than my Comfort Level 2 SmartSilk Pillow









Check out the video my Hubs and I did.


SmartSilk is the first natural bedding to be certified Asthma and allergy friendly  
They are mold and mildew resistant and come with a 10 year warranty. 

What a nice surprise I got with this SmartSilk Pillow.  The king size fits my reading chair perfectly.  I have been looking for a pillow just for this spot.

It is the perfect size for that chair.

  24. What a great review Terry and I love that hubby was involved today as well. I am a big fan of pillows and the bigger the better for me since I sleep on my side and back. I suffer with back pain and think this may just be what I need.

  38. This is something I always struggle with. I'm a multi-position sleeper, but I don't know what position I'm in most. I fall asleep pretty quickly on my side, but wake up all over the place.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I totally want one of these. I am a pillow snob and they have to be comfy

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yes, it is a good idea to put a small pillow under your knees if you sleep on your back. I injured my right shoulder a couple of years ago and also I find that the pillow under my knees helps me keep from rolling onto that shoulder.
