Eve Microfibre Pillow Review
Eve Sleep is a company that has primarily taken its place in the market thanks to mattresses, but also thanks to their great pillows, duvets and other sleep-related products. Their Microfiber pillow has a lot of good features and is certainly one of the best pillows on the UK sleep market at the moment. That’s why we reviewed this product for you – to help you find out all about Eve Microfiber pillow and decide whether you should go for it. Let’s start with this Eve Microfibre pillow review, shall we?
Who is Eve Microfibre pillow for?
Due to its specific shape, it is very versatile. It has a thinner and thicker edge and it can adapt equally well to different sleeping positions. First of all, the pillow is made for side, back sleepers and those who need an extra neck support. It is also convenient for hot sleepers as well because as the manufacturer says the ‘cold side of the pillow’ feeling will last all night due to the special Aerelle cool night filling.
Hollowfibre filling further enhances breathability, so you will certainly not be hot as is often the case with synthetic products. It is made for people with allergies, because all materials are hypoallergenic. All this makes it a product that will suit most people and the majority of them will be happy with the purchase.

What do we use this product for?
We use this product for a comfortable and allergen-free night sleep.Unlike it’s similar cousin, Eve Snuggle, this one has a thinner and thicker edge that will be very comfortable for those sleeping on their sides and backs. In addition, its cooling properties make it suitable during the hot summer. Not the best choice for people who prefer resting on their stomachs or for watching TV from bed because it is not firm enough.
Features you should know about the Eve Microfibre pillow
This is not a simple pillow, because it has a thicker and “boxier” edge, and it also has two different fillings in it, one of which is cooling. So we will tell you a little more about Aerelle cool nights core, high thread count cotton and hollowfibre layer, then specific shape, as well as about the very important OEKO-Tex Standard Class II.
Aerelle Cool Nights Core
Some people have a big problem finding a pillow that is comfortable and cooling for them at the same time. Most manufacturers guarantee that their products are suitable for hot sleepers even though it is made of synthetic materials, this is often not true, but due to the Aerelle cool night filling, this product is a great choice for everyone. It is a special filling that is designed to draw heat away from you and ensure airily soft feeling.
This will provide you with a pillow that is cool and comfortable. No matter how long you sleep or how warm it is outside, you will always have the ‘cold side of the pillow’ available.
Cotton and Hollowfibre layer
It is specific in many ways, and one of the reasons is that in the middle there is a chamber filled with hollowfibres and on the outside there is microfiber, which forms the outer chamber. This is a very ingenious idea because the central chamber is firm, and the outer chamber is soft. So it achieves firmness and softness at the same time.
Over all this is a cotton layer, to make you even more comfortable sleeping. High quality cotton was used, with a thread count of 233.
There are numerous benefits of wedge pillow but they are still not used as often as standard because they are not comfortable for everyone. The company made the ideal combination of wedge pillow and standard pillow. It has a specific shape so that it can better adapt to different sleeping positions, pregnant women, people who have back pain, as well as those who snore often.
On the other hand, it is not a firm as the most of the similar products are, so it will be comfortable for those who otherwise avoid such type because it gives them the feeling of sleeping on rock. Thicker side is for those who prefer resting on their sides, while thinner side is for people sleeping on their backs.
OEKO-Tex Standard Class II
We are surrounded by harmful chemicals. In many things, like food, there is almost no way to avoid it, but that is why we should try to avoid chemicals in all other products where possible. One of the things that caught our attention in this Eve Microfibre pillow review is OEKO-Tex Standard Class II certified. Oeko-Tex labels and certificates confirm the human-ecological safety of textile products from all stages of production. To obtain this certificate the product must pass a series of tests.
This means that you are completely safe and that you will not be exposed to anything that harms your health. This certificate also makes the Eve Microfibre pillow suitable for children.
Review of Eve Microfibre pillow
This pillow has a wedge shape, but the difference compared to classic wedge pillows is that the difference between the thicker and thinner side is not so big. The shape as well as the filling makes it suitable for side and those who prefer laying on their back. Therefore, you will ensure a great position for your head.
- Wedge shape
- Great price-value ratio
- Washable at 40 Celsius degrees
- Great cooling properties
- OEKO-Tex Standard Class II.
- Not the ideal pick for stomach sleepers

What we like about Eve Microfibre pillow
- This type of shape is not so common on the market, so we really liked that it has edges of different thicknesses, because it makes it much more comfortable for different sleeping positions,
- Great cooling properties and will suit even hot sleepers
- A 14 night trial is more than enough to decide if it suits you, and a 3 year guarantee gives you a piece of mind.
What we didn’t like about Eve Microfibre pillow
- People who sleep on their stomachs will find this pillow too soft and without enough support
- Eve offers a Microfiber pillow in only one size, which will certainly not suit everyone
- Although the core is firm, the outer layer can be too soft for some customers.
Check the best alternatives to Eve Microfibre pillow
Although the Eve Microfibre pillow is a really great product, many people still prefer memory foam pillows, so we singled out two that are a great alternative to the Microfibre pillow. The first is the Panda memory foam pillow which is made of bamboo and the second is also a product offered by Eve Sleep company.
Panda Memory Foam Bamboo pillow
This pillow provides great support and is suitable for a large number of different people. Since bamboo is a natural material, its breathability is better than that of other similar ones. In addition, bamboo is naturally hypoallergenic material and therefore it will help you fight off the allergy problems.
It is durable and comes with a long warranty period so it will be a good investment in the long run. It is worth mentioning that it is especially comfortable for side sleepers but the rest of the sleepers can use it as well.

What makes this product better than some other similar ones?
Two features that make this product better than some other similar ones are the cooling core as well as the wedge shape. Cooling core is all that a hot sleeper can wish for, and it is also firm, so it provides support. Many people will like the shape, because they will be able to use edges of different thicknesses depending on the situation.
How did we test the product?
Kudos to Eve Sleep for making the whole ordering process very easy. Ordering a product on a website is fast and you will finish it in just a few minutes. Shipping is generally free, but there are exceptions, so find out more on the website. You can also choose your delivery day, if that suits you, or opt for non-contact option.
The Eve Microfiber pillow arrived quickly and the first thing you will notice is certainly the specific shape that is reminiscent of a wedge pillow, but significantly larger and with a smaller loft. It is available in only one size and is slightly larger than the standard models. The dimensions are 46 x 67 cm, which is somewhere between standard and queen size. Fits 50 × 75 cm pillowcase. The quality of the pillow looks great and the first impression was positive. As always when we had contact with Eve Sleep products, the workmanship is at the highest level.
We started testing by lying down briefly on this pillow, for a few minutes on the thicker and thinner edge. The first impression is that it is very comfortable, medium-firm and provides good support. As this is not enough time to see all the features, we approached the overnight test. The side sleeper tested first and was very pleased with the balance of comfort and support. Pressure relief, however, is not at the level of memory foam products, which was to be expected. We repeated the overnight test the next night, when the back sleeper tested and he was even happier than the side sleeper, because the Eve Microfiber was so comfortable for that sleeping position. It was easy to notice the cooling properties as well.
