    Buyers guide

    • A guide to finding your mattress

      To offer you the best shopping experience, we have tried to make it as easy as possible for you to navigate our site and find the right mattress for you. This is why we have provided extensive filter options so that you can narrow your search down by size, price and various mattress specifications, offering a simple and efficient way of searching through our products.

      On every category page you will see a number of filter options to the left hand side. Using these filter options can help you narrow down your choice. We appreciate that some of the options may be unfamiliar to you which is why we have created this page to help guide you through the filtering process.

      With or without a price bracket selected, an important step, as we're sure you will agree, is to select your mattress size. We offer single, small double, double, king size, euro, and super king size mattresses.

      Brand

      You can narrow down your choice by range. If you would like more in-depth information on our mattress ranges we would suggest visiting the individual range pages which you can access from the homepage or from the main menu.

      Firmness rating

      The feel of a mattress is a very personal thing. We offer a firmness rating as a guide to help our customers make a decision. If you have a particular preference on firmness, then you can narrow your results by firmness. As we said, it's all down to personal choice, however if you suffer with any back problems then we would recommend you choose a Medium Firm Mattress for the perfect level of comfort and support.

      Mattress type

      At Memory Foam Warehouse we offer memory foam mattresses as well as pocket sprung with memory foam, and reflex foam. With a memory foam mattress your body will be cradled by the foam and supported by the base. With a pocket sprung mattress, each spring supports each area of your body individually, which is also great if there is a significant weight difference between partners sharing a bed. A pocket sprung memory foam mattress offers a medium feel and has a little more spring to it than a full foam mattress. A reflex foam mattress will feel quite firm, and although still offering comfort and support, it won't offer the same high level of comfort and pressure relief that memory foam can offer. Reflex foam mattresses are a great option for those on a budget, or for use in guest bedrooms. An orthopaedic mattress features a very firm surface, and will offer a range of health benefits including increased blood circulation. It is ideally suited to people with aches, pains and swollen joints as well as those with more severe conditions such as arthritis.

      Mattress depth

      A deeper mattress such as 30cm will offer a higher level of support, which is especially important for those of a heavier build or with musculoskeletal problems. Young children and light to average size adults on the other hand will be perfectly happy with a shallower depth mattress, such as 15cm – 20cm deep, dependent on personal choice.

      Memory foam layer depth

      The depth of the memory foam layer has an impact on the overall feel of the mattress, as well as the support and pressure relief that it offers. Although other factors are involved, generally the shallower the depth of the memory foam layer, the firmer the mattress will feel. A deep memory foam layer will provide the ultimate soft and luxurious feel and will allow the body to sink deeper in to the mattress without feeling the support base below. Again this is down to personal choice, although we do recommend that if you suffer with back pain or any musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis then you should be looking for a memory foam layer of 7cm or above to offer the best level of support and comfort.

      We hope you have found this guide helpful, and you can now find your perfect mattress with ease. However if you would like any further information, please don't hesitate to contact our Sleep Experts with any questions you might have.

    • Memory Foam Warehouse vs TEMPUR

      With so many up and coming brands dominating the mattress market, it can be hard to differentiate which factors constitute quality. When it comes to memory foam mattresses, the first name that probably springs to your mind is tempur (we know they're often on our mind!) Tempur are held in high esteem by many and have earned their reputation as a leading brand in the field. As they are such a trusted brand who produce consistently high quality mattresses, the products are often accompanied by an expensive price tag.

      A quality memory foam mattress will do all that it promises, it will offer support and extraordinary comfort and, for people suffering with back pain, arthritis, and other joint problems, the relief a memory foam mattress offers is priceless. We would never advise going ‘cheap’ on a mattress as we consider all our mattresses as investment products which lead to a better quality of sleep.

      However, as sleep experts, we do spend plenty of time talking to our customers about what they need and what we have discovered from so many of you is that memory foam is often associated with high expense in comparison to other types of mattress. Memory foam is in general more expensive than other types of mattress, yet looking beyond the bigger brands, you can still benefit from a quality memory foam mattress without the enormous price tag.

      We have looked at our Double Outlast Ultra Memory Foam Mattress in comparison with the Tempur Original 21 Mattress and made some interesting observations. Let's take in to account some important features to give a fair comparison:

      Memory foam depth

      Our own Double Outlast Ultra Memory Foam Mattress has an impressive 7cm dual layer of HD memory foam which comprises of a 5cm comfort layer and a 7cm support layer to provide a dual benefit of superior comfort and support for sleepers. In total, the depth of our mattress is 23cm whilst the Tempur Original 21 Mattress comes in just short at 20cm.

      Although the base foam provides the overall structure and delivers the expected level of comfort which can be found in every memory foam mattress, any additional layers offer added thickness and softness so the sleeper can benefit from a super comfortable sleep.

      For more information about the importance of memory foam mattress depth and factoring this into your decision to buy a memory foam mattress, read our educational guide which takes you through the levels of depth in a memory foam mattress and the benefits for the intended sleeper.

      Memory foam density

      The density of tempur foam is 85kg/m3, which is a high density foam offering plenty of support. The density of our Double Outlast Ultra Memory Foam Mattress is 60kg/m3, although slightly less than the foam found in tempur mattresses, 60kg/m3 is still a very high density memory foam that will offer a superb level of support, moulding to the contours of your body.

      The denser the mattress, the higher content of memory foam which has been used. This provides an overall firmer mattress which is ideal for sleepers who want a higher level of support for their neck and back. A high density mattress ensures your spine is correctly aligned as you sleep, reducing the need to toss and turn by up to 80%.

      For a more detailed exploration of the density of a memory foam mattress, read our informative blog post which covers the definition of density and why it should be considered when purchasing a new mattress.

      Mattress cover

      Our Double Outlast Ultra Memory Foam Mattress features a removable and washable outlast cover. Outlast is a NASA approved, space certified technology which has produced a material to effectively regulate the temperature of your body, meaning you won't be too hot or too cold during the night. The tempur mattress features a removable and washable polyester cover.

      Outlast boasts an innovative and unique design which provides an added value to the sleeper, storing your body heat when it is too warm and releasing back to you when the temperature drops. For a more detailed insight into outlast and how it works, read our product focus on the outlast mattress and find out why it’s often thought of as the “mattress for all seasons”.

      And the difference in price?

      A double Tempur Original 21 Double Mattress has a list price of £1949 and currently on special offer at £1,079.

      Our Outlast Ultra Memory Foam Mattresses have a list price from £699.99 and today will cost you from £269.99!

      The difference in price between these two mattresses is staggering and although tempur is an undisputed market leader, there are lesser known brands such as outlast which still possess the same benefits of its competitor.

    • Rolled mattresses

      All our memory foam mattresses are delivery rolled (unless specified otherwise). A rolled mattress still delivers superior comfort and support night after night, whilst having the added benefit of being easy to transport into your bedroom.

      Rolling a memory foam mattress

      For transportation purposes, many memory foam mattresses are rolled and compressed using a vacuum to suck out the air. Rather than using a vacuum, we use an innovative compressor machine which compresses the mattress as it is being rolled.

      Your memory foam mattress is compressed to approximately 25% of its original size using our manufacturing machinery. Our manufacturing process is carefully tested to ensure that absolutely no damage is caused during compression.

      The Benefits of a rolled mattress

      Great for home delivery. Rolling a mattress ensures a smoother transition from our warehouse into your home. If you live close by to one of our retail outlets, you can collect your rolled mattress, pack it into your car and drive away with it the very same day. This is a very popular choice for many customers as it cuts the delivery time dramatically. As you are able to collect the mattress yourself, there is no need to wait in for your mattress to be delivered which means you can enjoy a great night’s sleep sooner.

      A rolled mattress also makes it easier for our deliverymen. Compressing the mattress means there is less chance of it being damaged in transit, because not only will it be easier for our deliverymen to handle the mattress, there is less surface area exposed too.

      Improves the performance of your memory foam mattress. The performance of a foam sleeping surface actually improves after the first few months due to foam cell structure becoming less resilient and slightly softer. The short time that the mattress is compressed will actually speed up this process, improving the feel of the foam, and allowing the most comfortable sleeping surface from the first night.

      We would not however, recommend keeping your mattress rolled for longer than a two month period, as we cannot guarantee the integrity of a product which has been rolled for longer than this. Please also be reminded that we urge you to check over your product as soon as you receive it so that you have the opportunity to contact us should there be any discrepancies.

      If you order a memory foam mattress with us and would prefer that it is not rolled for delivery, simply ask our sleep experts to note your preference when ordering. We are more than happy to accommodate your request and deliver your mattress flat.

    • How much should you spend on a mattress?

      The price of a mattress can range from couple of hundred pounds to a few thousand; but does a higher price tag always result in a better quality product? When purchasing a new mattress, it is important to consider a range of factors in order to fulfil specific sleeping and budget requirements. Factors affecting the price of mattresses

      If you have begun to look for your new mattress, then you will have noticed the large price differences which separate them. There are several different factors which can cause this:

      If you’re buying from a reputable mattress company, then the price gap should be due to the complexity and quality of the mattress design. A more advanced design and better mattress quality can result in an increased cost to manufacture the product due to the use of additional/more expensive materials, a longer manufacturing process and higher labour costs.

      However, this is not the only reason for increased mattress prices. A company sourcing and manufacturing mattresses abroad and then selling them in the U.K can cost more due to higher transportation costs. The mattresses at Memory Foam Warehouse are designed and made in Britain, meaning you won’t have to pay extra if you choose to purchase your mattress from us.

      When you purchase a mattress, you are also buying a brand name. Well-known brands can charge higher prices for a very similar product, as they have earned their customers’ respect and loyalty and they have the reviews to show it. Although it is important to buy from a reputable source, it is important to take this into account and research the different products available, and this can prevent you from paying more than you should. What to consider when buying a mattress

      It is essential that you have decided on a price limit before you visit a mattress supplier. Many mattress salesmen are commission-based, and it can be easy to be convinced or pressured into paying more money than you bargained for. Having a budget will prevent you from making any irrational purchases which can hurt your bank balance. Informing the sales team of your price range will help them to show you the appropriate items or deals, and it should also prevent them from trying to sell you something which you can’t afford.

      Although it is important to budget, you should also remember that a mattress is an investment. Think of your mattress in the same way as you think of your car or your sofa. Spending a little extra can result in a better quality product, which benefits you long after you have recovered from the initial cost. A low budget could buy you a mattress that is a suitable for a rarely-used guest room, however it should be avoided if you are looking for a mattress which will be used for any length of time. We strongly advise that you steer clear of any bargain bins, as this can lead to an uncomfortable night’s sleep and further shopping.

      The quality of a mattress can even impact your health and lifestyle, as a poor quality mattress can cause unnecessary aches and pains and damage the quality of your sleep. The cheapest option won’t be a good investment, and it might even end up costing you more in the long-term as you will have to replace it sooner due to an inferior design. How much should I spend on a mattress?

      Your health and comfort should always be made a priority, which is why we always recommend that you spend as much as you can allocate. You should consider the quality of the materials, as well as the design and finish. Please note that this doesn’t mean that every expensive mattress is high quality, and ensure that you choose a reputable company for your purchase. A good tip is to keep your eye on mattress sales to see if you can get a bargain on a quality product. Take a test drive

      The Mirror states that we spend approximately one third of our lives sleeping, and so it is imperative that we keep our bedroom comfortable, warm and clean. This is true of our mattresses too, and this can really only be judged by experiencing the feel of a mattress first-hand.

      When you choose your mattress, you’re making a decision which you will have to live with for a long time. Make sure that your choice is the right one by asking a closing your eyes and imagining yourself in your bedroom. Get into your regular sleeping position and ask yourself if you are comfortable, if it has the right degree of firmness and if it is suitable for your partner.

      Guarantees and warranties

      A guarantee will give you the opportunity to try your mattress at home. A test drive in-store can be a good indication of whether a mattress is right for you, however occasionally you might find that you have a different opinion after you spend a night on it at home. A guarantee can give you the opportunity to return it, and gives you the opportunity to continue looking for the product which is best for you.

      A bonus with spending more on a mattress is that you will usually get a longer warranty. This is because the mattress company should be more confident in the quality and the user experience which their mattress provides, which means they can offer a longer guarantee. Virtually every warranty doesn’t cover damage to the mattress, and refers to failures in the design, materials and manufacture of the product, and so cheaper and inferior designs are likely to offer a shorter return period.

    • Is memory foam depth important?

      Buying a memory foam mattress requires you to do a little homework beforehand. Depth relates to the thickness of the memory foam. Choosing the correct thickness for you will be dependent on your sleeping position, your mattress condition and your weight. It is advised that the more weight placed on the mattress then the thicker the memory foam should be.

      Is Memory Foam Depth Important

      Memory foam mattresses can be anywhere from 6 to 13 inches (15 to 33cm) deep. This appears to be quite thick and to the untrained eye, the thicker the memory foam the more comfort. This is right and wrong. The first thing to know is that the majority of memory foam mattresses on the market are not entirely made of memory foam. This isn't a scam though, if the whole mattress was memory foam then it would just be too soft and you would end up sinking too deeply into the product.

      The construction of a memory foam mattress

      There are a small range of memory foam mattresses which are entirely made of memory foam but they are few and far between and usually have a low thickness to keep you from sinking into them too deeply. Memory foam products are temperature sensitive which allow the material to mould to fit around your body but there are a few different types to look at.

      These mattresses are known for being warmer than other mattress as they work alongside the heat from your body, but don' t be turned off by this. Gel memory foam is a more breathable option as it provides good air circulation and keeps you cooler while you sleep.

      Memory foam mattresses comprise of around 2 to 4 layers of foam. The base is made from a dense foam such as reflex foam which acts as the support. Layers in between the base and top could vary depending on what you are searching for, it could be extra memory foam or an airflow foam to aid air circulation. The top layer will be memory foam and this is the thickness that matters.

      When you are looking at memory foam mattresses, try to look past the entire thickness of the mattress and focus on the actual thickness of the memory foam layer. This layer can vary anywhere from 1 inch to 6 or higher in some mattresses. Keeping the thickness in this range will cater to most needs. A thickness of 6 inches will be too spongey and you may find yourself sinking too deeply into the product. The optimum thickness is around 3 to 4 inches, this will give you a high level of comfort and support.

      Your mattress condition

      This is key to understand as you don't want to purchase a mattress topper if it isn' t going to benefit you in the long run. If your mattress has seen better days and has lumps and bumps then a memory foam topper is not going to solve this problem. You will probably end up feeling like the princess and the pea. Adding layers onto a problem area will end up highlighting the area and make it feel worse. A new mattress is probably the easiest solution for you and then you can place a topper onto the mattress.

      Your sleeping position

      Sleeping on a firmer mattress can be comfortable if you are someone who tends to vary sleep positions but for those who prefer to sleep on their sides then this can be quite uncomfortable. Waking up with stiff shoulders and hips when you should be waking up energized. This is because a firm mattress is not suitable for side sleepers in the same way that a soft mattress isn' t suitable for people who sleep on their stomach.

      When you sleep on your stomach you are spreading your body weight but with memory foam you want to avoid sinking face first. A thickness of about 2 inches for a mattress topper or top layer of memory foam is most suitable as this will allow the product to mould to fit and support your body. As a side or back sleeper, you will want that sinking feeling. Choosing a thickness of 3 inches will release any pressure from your shoulders and hips and provide a softer surface to sleep on.

    • Memory foam health benefits

      Widely known for their superior levels of comfort and their ability to mould to the shape of our bodies, memory foam mattresses have become a staple in our homes. However, due to the hype surrounding their superior comfort levels, the significant health benefits of memory foam mattresses are often overlooked.

      A memory foam mattress can benefit every part of your body. It can ease muscle pain whilst simultaneously promoting air circulation, allowing your body to breathe and reducing the likelihood of any swelling, chaffing and bed sores. Sleeping in a cool, healthy and clean environment are just a couple of health benefits you can expect from your memory foam mattress.

      Memory foam health advantages: Helping your body from head to toe

      A Memory Foam Mattress works to improve and benefit every part of your body, easing muscle pain and providing a fantastic sleeping surface. The open cell construction of the visco-elastic material allows air to circulate, giving you a cooler and more restful night’s sleep whilst allowing your body to breathe. This can reduce any swelling, chaffing or bed sores, and makes memory foam a popular choice for a range of medical facilities.

      1 Head and neck

      Memory Foam Pillows cradle and support your head and neck, helping you to get a restful and comfortable night’s sleep and reducing your chances of experiencing headaches or migraines when you wake. Thanks to the full support that memory foam products offer for your head, there won’t be any strain, stiffness or tension when you sleep. The construction of the mattress can also ease and sometimes eradicate sleeping disorders such as insomnia and sleep apnoea as it helps to relax the body and keep airways open.

      2 Shoulders

      Memory foam can also offer exceptional support to side sleepers and reduce sleep-related aches and pains. If you often wake up with pain or stiffness in your shoulders, then it is likely that you haven’t been able to sink them properly into the mattress to remove the pressure placed on them by your body. Memory Foam will allow your shoulders or elbows to sink in and support the rest of your weight. It is also a recommended material for those who suffer from frozen shoulder syndrome (Adhesive Capsulitis) as the visco-elastic material will ease pressure points and reduce unnecessary strain.

      3 Back and spine

      When sleeping on a traditional mattress, your spine tends to bend to accommodate its shape. This isn’t the case with memory foam, which has been expertly designed to mould to the shape of your body and provide you with full lumbar support. Memory foam mattresses can also help with spinal alignment, reducing the risk of back aches and other sleep-related pain from becoming an everyday issue. It can also improve your posture whilst you’re awake, which can have a positive impact from how you present yourself and your mood throughout the day.

      4 Arms and hands

      Sleeping on a traditional spring mattress can lead to waking up with numbness in your arms and hands. This numbness may only last a couple of minutes when you wake up, but as time continues the pain may start to become more severe. Memory foam is perfect for those who sleep in any position, as the foam will equally support your body weight and mould to how you are sleeping. It can reduce the strain from tennis elbow with a cushioned sleeping surface and leave pins and needles in the sewing kit.

      5 Hips and knees

      Memory foam mattresses cradle your hips, allowing for a comfortable night’s sleep free from aches and pains. Memory foam contours to your entire body, spreading your weight evenly to remove the strain on your body’s pressure points. These mattresses are ideal for individuals with arthritis or other types of muscle and joint pain.

      6 Ankles and feet

      The foam’s visco-elastic structure reduces your tossing and turning throughout the night by acting as a shock absorber. This can reduce the severity of common issues such as restless leg syndrome and ankle pain. On a separate note, memory foam’s excellent ability to absorb shock means that it is the perfect choice for couples, as it can stop you from feeling mattress movement from your partner if they get up in the night. If you would like to read more about the health benefits of memory foam then have a read of the Memory Foam Warehouse blog where we answer customer questions, talk about our latest products and write about the many advantages which memory foam has to offer.

    • How to clean memory foam?

      Cleaning a memory foam mattress can be challenging, especially if you’re unaware of the potential damage you can do to your bed if you don’t do it properly. Memory Foam Warehouse have devised some simple tips and tricks to ensure that you’re able to successfully clean your mattress, preventing any unnecessary damage for many more comfortable nights.

      Cleaning spillls

      If you happen to spill a liquid on your Memory Foam Mattress, we would recommend that you strip and wash the cover before gently cleaning the foam. It is important that you only use a small amount of lukewarm soapy water. Too much liquid can work its way into the different layers and shorten the mattress’ lifespan. It will also make it the perfect place for mould and bacteria to breed. You should also avoid rigorous cleaning or using traditional stain removers, as this is likely to damage the surface of the mattress. To prevent any other lasting problems, we recommend that you allow your mattress air dry in a cool and clean environment. If it’s a sunny day, then you could even leave it outside to dry.

      Regular cleaning

      If you’ve not spilled anything on your mattress and just want to give it a general clean, then a vacuum cleaner is a quick and easy method of removing unwanted dust, crumbs etc. from its surface. You can then wipe it down lightly with a mild detergent, before allowing it to air dry. It’s essential that no covers or sheets are placed on the mattress whilst it is damp because this can prevent moisture from escaping.

      Hints and tips Use a mattress cover

      We can’t stress enough how important it is to invest in a cover or protector. A mattress cover acts as a barrier, absorbing sweat and other liquids before they can reach the mattress and thereby increasing its lifespan. This makes it an easy and efficient method of stain prevention, and it can also be removed and washed easily. The vast majority of mattress guarantees become invalid when a mattress is soiled or damaged, and so a cover or protector is a great way to give you peace of mind. A lot of our memory foam mattresses already come with their own zipped, removable mattress cover, meaning you can continue to sleep in a fresh and healthy environment for years to come!

      Rotate your mattress

      Rotating your mattress will help to prevent uneven wear and compression, as well as limit the likelihood of any sagging. We would strongly recommend that you don’t flip your memory foam mattress due to their one sided design and the way that the layers have been formed. Find out more about how to care for your memory foam mattress.

      Wash your sheets regularly

      A lot happens to our bodies when we sleep. We produce approximately one litre of sweat each night, we shed hair and skin cells, and we also secrete natural oils. This makes it fairly easy to understand why it’s important to wash your sheets on a regular basis. We would recommend that you wash your bedding at least every two weeks, however once every week would be ideal.

      Still unsure?

    • Memory foam pillows buying guide

      Purchasing a mattress is a task which normally requires careful consideration, comparison and testing; however most of us don’t spend the same amount of time and effort when searching for our pillows. This guide will provide essential information on the different brands and Memory Foam Pillow types, so that you can be confident in your purchase and benefit from many nights of great sleep.

      Memory Foam Warehouse has built a great reputation in providing fantastic quality mattresses, however we also take great pride in providing our customers with high quality, memory foam pillows. All of our pillows are 100% hypo-allergenic and anti-bacterial, preventing dust mites and the accumulation of household dust. This means that they’re ideal for those suffering from asthma and other related allergies. Our memory foam pillows also come complete with a removable, washable cover which allows you to keep your surface clean and achieve a healthy sleeping environment.

      What's the difference between memory foam pillows and regular pillows?

      Over time, regular pillows tend to lose their bounce, becoming lumpy and uncomfortable which will impact the quality of your sleep. This can lead to having to “double up” your pillows in order to maintain a comfortable sleeping surface and to reduce neck and shoulder pains.

      Memory Foam Pillows are different, maintaining their shape for much longer than a more traditional design. They contain an advanced, unique material which cradles the head and neck, relieving stress and pressure by providing support to the neck and spine. This makes them a popular addition to all types of environments, including homes, hospitals and hotels.

      Memory Foam Pillows offer other useful advantages over conventional pillows. These include improved blood circulation, the reduction or elimination of snoring, and improved spinal alignment during sleep.

      Types of memory foam pillows

      Pillows are not something which are bought every week, and so the various terminologies that are used to describe them might seem confusing. This guide will help to explain the properties of the various types of pillows available from Memory Foam Warehouse, so that you have the necessary information to purchase the best pillow for you. Memory foam bed wedge pillow

      Our memory foam bed wedge pillows have been expertly designed to provide a fantastic level of support for those who spend prolonged periods of time in bed. Whether you're watching television, reading or enjoying a midnight snack, our comfortable memory foam wedge pillows will help to relieve any unnecessary tension.

      As with all of our memory foam products, the heat responsive material will adapt to the contours of your body. Our wedge pillows also feature a washable cover.

      Health pillows

      Our health care pillows are made using a unique visco-elastic material, designed to support you whilst removing any strain on your upper body. This makes them a comfortable surface to relax upon, perfect for those who like to watch television or read books in bed.

      The unique shape of our health pillows promotes a better posture, whilst simultaneously easing neck and back pain. All of our Health Pillows are 100% hypo-allergenic, meaning that they prevent dust mites and are ideally suited to people who experience asthma or other similar allergies. Each pillow also comes with a removable, washable cover. This allows you to keep your sleeping environment clean and healthy, and regular washing of this cover will also increase the lifespan of your pillow.

      Neck support pillows

      Neck support pillows are best suited for individuals with sleep apnoea, snoring and/or other similar conditions, and they can also improve your posture and spinal alignment.

      When airways are obstructed, it causes this type of sleep condition to become more prominent and severe. The unique design and shape of neck support memory foam pillows helps with the correct functioning of your air passages keeping them free from obstruction.

      Travel pillows

      Sleeping during journeys can get very uncomfortable, and many of us have struggled to sleep on planes or in cars due to inadequate support. If you do sleep, it will often result in preventable tension in your neck and upper back. A travel Pillow from Memory Foam Warehouse has been specifically designed to target this tension, helping to remove unnecessary pressure from key points to help provide a relaxing and comfortable journey.

      Travel pillows are perfect for people who are always on the go. If you are a frequent flyer or often find yourself on the road, one of our Memory Foam Travel Pillows will provide you with the support and comfort you require to sleep as you travel.

      Contour memory foam pillows

      Contour memory foam pillows will elevate your head and neck, providing a more comfortable sleep for those who tend to sleep on their side or back. These pillows instantly remove strain whilst ensuring that your spine and posture remain in perfect alignment. They will also support your head and neck, allowing you to breathe properly whilst reducing the effects of conditions such as sleep apnoea and snoring.

      Our contour pillows come with a removable, washable cover in either Outlast, Coolmax or Essentials fabric. Each cover has been designed for a specific purpose, which we will explore in the Brand section of this Buying Guide.
