Aeyla The Dual Pillow is a great option because it is comfortable to rest your head on – which is exactly why we use it. This pillow is an ideal option if you are someone who changes their sleep position quite frequently in the night as it slowly regains its shape to suit your position every time you move. Using this dual pillow will also minimise the number of pillows you will have on your bed. It gives the illusion of one pillow, with the ability to work as two – a clever design for those wanting a minimal aesthetic on their bed.
Each product has some important features you should know more about. That's why we, in this part of the review, have singled out everything crucial for every future owner of The Dual Pillow to know. From the design to the options available, here is the rundown of this Aeyla pillow.
This Aeyla pillow consists of two parts – an inner pillow and the outer pillow. These two can be separated for washing, but also for getting a softer sleep surface if needed. Do not get confused – there is no pillowcase or removable cover that protects the pillow. Instead, it utilises the innovative pillow-in-pillow design with two pillows that you can separate and use to find a comfortable way of sleeping.
You will probably be surprised how a pillow with sink-in softness can provide good support, and wonder how a sink-in pillow will suit stomach sleepers. But, Aeyla has managed to combine sink-in softness and support, thanks to the pillow-in-pillow design that will be supportive and remain comfortable. When you lie down, you will first sink into the ideal position and the pillow will support the chosen position.
The Dual Pillow comes in two loft options – mid loft and low loft. Judging by the name, you would probably guess that one of them is higher than the other, therefore more suited towards certain sleeping positions, but no. Both of these options sit 15cm tall. So, where's the difference? Well, the low loft has less filling than the mid loft option. Therefore, the mid-loft is a slightly firmer and more supportive choice that will sink less than the low loft.
And what we just told you about sink-in softness and support at the same time is possible because of the inner pillow which is highly supportive. The outer layer or to be more precise outer pillow is credited for comfort and fluffiness, while the inner pillow is in charge of support and firmness of the whole pillow.
Aeyla points out that they used the brand new polyester microfiber to fill this pillow, unlike many other pillows available on the market in the United Kingdom that are filled with leftover scraps of polyester to reduce costs.
Their brand new polyester microfiber fill is Oeko-Tex certified. This guarantees that the pillow is completely free of any harmful chemicals or toxins, which means that it is completely safe for sensitive groups of people, such as those with allergies and children with asthma. Oeko-Tex is well-known label for textiles tested for harmful substances.
This unique pillow features a pillow-in-a-pillow design that offers softness while still providing the support you need – regardless of the position you sleep in. From testing, the overall feel of the dual pillow is super soft which is lovely to sleep on all night long and it feels of high quality. At first, we were a tad sceptical about this one suiting stomach sleepers' needs, but when testing we found that removing the inner pillow leaves you with a perfectly cosy, low-profile fluffy outer pillow.
However, what makes Aeyla Dual Pillow special is the fact it is available in two loft options – Mid and Low – to fit your individual needs. The Mid loft option is slightly firmer and will provide a bit more support, especially for the side sleepers. This is not like your cervical or contour pillow level of support, so keep that in mind. In some ways, having the mid loft gives you the option of mid and low because you can remove the inner pillow to lower the loft.
For added peace of mind, the pillow is made with hypoallergenic Oeko-Tex certified polyester microfiber fill and super-soft cotton for a completely safe and healthy sleep experience, so you can rest assured that both you and your family will wake up happy and allergy-free every morning. The separate pillows can be washed to keep them clean, using a mild detergent on a gentle cycle and follow this up by drying them in the tumble dryer with dryer balls.

The pillow reached us very quickly. We unpacked it right away, and since there is almost no smell, we were able to use it immediately.
We have already tested some other products from their offer, so we were not surprised by the high level of workmanship. The pillow is really very comfortable, although at first it seems that you will sink too much. But just then support kicks in. You will feel it shape towards your head and then hold your head and neck in the perfect position. The morning after the overnight test we were very pleased and tried it in all three sleep positions. If we have to single out, the back sleeper was probably satisfied, but it is definitely recommended by the side and stomach sleeper from our test team.
We then washed it, following the instructions. You can tumble it dry with dryer balls to keep it fluffy.
In the FAQs section we will answer some more questions, and those answers should help you decide whether to order this pillow.
Yes, it can be used by back, side and stomach sleepers and they can expect similar performances.
Breathability is fine, and cotton is generally cooling material so hot sleepers are likely to find it good enough.
It does not come with a pillowcase or cover. Instead, the pillow consists of two pillows – the inner and fluffy outer pillows.
It is machine washable, but don’t forget to separate inner fluffy outer parts.
Hold opposite corners and push in and out diagonally.
