My husband and I surround ourselves with pillows of all shapes and sizes in our queen-sized bed. What I forgot to consider is the quality of the pillow. Or I just wasn’t aware of pillows that provide maximum comfort to our neck area. We headed off to Tempur showroom at the EDSA Shangrila mall to check the pillows and bed mattress. I would have thought there is only one pillow to choose. There are 9 kinds of Tempur Pillows: Long Hug Pillow, Original Pillow, Millenium Pillow, Classic Pillow, Symphony Pillow, Sonata Pillow, Design Pillow, Comfort pillow, and Ombracio Pillow.
The Sales person first explained the origins of Tempur. The material is unique, originally developed for the NASA space programme in order to protect and offer comfort cushioning for astronauts traveling in space. The material in Tempur absorbs pressure at both heavy and light loads.
My husband and I were looking for maximum comfort to our neck area and allowing our neck and shoulders to relax completely. We also told the Tempur Salesperson that we both sleep on our sides. The Original and the Millenium are the therapeutic-oriented pillows of Tempur. Since we loved sleeping on our side, The Original was suggested . We didn’t take their word for it. My husband tested it himself..
I took a photo of my husband as he laid down on the Original pillow. I can see that it moulds perfectly to the exact contours of his neck and head. Now that should give him excellent support and relief to the neck and shoulder muscles. He often complains of stiff neck when he does not get enough sleep. I tested the Original Pillow soon after and I felt the comfort on my neck. This is the pillow we want.
The only thing that felt strange is lifting the pillow. It does not hold up as our ordinary pillow used to. It will take getting used to.
The Tempur website gives a more detailed description of The Original Pillow.
The Original Pillow was developed together with physiotherapists to ensure that it moulds perfectly to the exact contours of your neck and head, giving excellent support and relief to the neck and shoulder muscles.
The Original Pillow is a support pillow and is recommended for those who desire not only a better nightâ€™s sleep but also need a more therapeutic sleep posture. The duallobe design supports the curve created by your head, neck and shoulders to properly align your spine and give you a perfect nightâ€™s sleep.
The soft, velour cover is resistant to allergens and mites and is removable for washing.
My husband kidded me that he wanted to sleep more. I heard that some customers never want to sleep in any other pillow or mattress if it is not Tempur.
That photo above is this portable mattress and pillow that can be dragged along during travels. I heard Paris Hilton drags this along with her travels.
My husband was off to another treat because Tempur had a sleeping chamber for testing their mattress which we plan to buy at another time. But for now, it is just two Original Tempur pillows. Watch out for our sleep experience in another entry.
