To put it simply, we’d use Silentnight Anti Snore pillow to reduce snoring. Since snoring is often caused due to obstructed airways, sleeping in a comfortable, ideal position could just affect just how much and how loud you snore, which is what this pillow aims to do.
Also, it could help you release some tension from your neck and shoulders by providing you with the much-needed support while you sleep, so we guess you could say that this is a 2-in-1 pillow. It is an ideal choice for sleepers who:
To gain a better understanding of just how and why this pillow manages to reduce snoring, we have to look at all the features that come with it.
The pillowcase of Silentnight's Anti Snore pillow is very high-quality, despite being made from synthetic materials. DuPont Cotrano fibre is just a fancy name for a synthetic fibre design to mimic cotton. However, that doesn’t take away from its quality.
The pillowcase is well-built, durable, and, as you can see – quilted. It's not the best at keeping things cool, but unless it is really hot outside, we don't feel like you're going to have to turn it over to the “cool” side.
The ergonomic design of this pillow allows it to be used by both side and back sleepers. The main feature of Silentnight Anti Snore pillow is the S-shaped memory foam insert surrounded by soft hollowfibre.
This unique, ergonomic design allows it to be both supportive and soft and comfortable at the same time, which is not something many memory foam pillows can do.
On the other hand, if you’re sleeping on your stomach, you probably won’t find this one as comfortable as you might want it to be. Ergonomically shaped foam core is much more oriented towards side and back sleepers and therefore it is not an ideal match for stomach sleepers.
The main selling point of this pillow is its ability to reduce snoring and help people struggling with OSA. Silentnight's claiming that it can reduce the frequency of snoring up to 50% per cent, so it is safe to say that they've made this pillow with those folks in mind. Therefore, sleep apnoea association comes in first once we mention this pillow.
This is achieved due to Silentnight Anti Snore pillow’s ergonomic design that promotes better posture during the night. Sleeping on this pillow should help keep your airways unobstructed so that you can breathe freely and snore-free.
Thanks to the mixture of hollowfibre and memory foam, this is a medium-firm pillow, which means, in theory, it should be suitable for pretty much everyone.
Hollowfibre used to encompass the S-shaped memory foam insert is soft and fluffy to the touch, and even though we could feel the memory foam insert with our hands, we haven't been able to feel the same thing when we've lied down.
From that standpoint, Silentnight has managed to do a good job of combing support and comfort with this medium-firm pillow. Your job is to find just the right position and enjoy the good night's sleep.
Another benefit of having a synthetic pillowcase are the hypoallergenic properties that come with this one. The DuPont Cotrano fibres aren't only soft and durable, but they're free of any potential allergens, and the way that they've been made has also made them anti-allergenic and dust-mite repellent.
As we all know, snoring can get even worse during the allergy season, or in people who suffer from dust allergies, so having this feature in a pillow such as this one is more than welcome.
The cover of Anti Snore pillow is not removable, which would be a concern if the entire pillow wasn’t machine washable.
Despite having a memory foam core, this pillow can be tossed in a washing machine and washed at 40°C on a slow cycle without any worries. When washed, it should be left to air dry, and it shouldn't be tumble dried as that could cause the hollowfibre filling to bunch and clump, which could ruin your new pillow.
First things first, we have to start with the main selling point of Anti Snore pillow, which are anti-snoring properties. When it comes to reducing the frequency of snoring, we have to say we didn't notice any improvement in that department, let alone a 50% improvement. However, what we did notice was the reduction in volume. Our resident snorer has become significantly quieter, which is in line with what most of the customers who have already tried this pillow have said.
On the other hand, the pillow really feels well-built and comfortable. The memory foam core manages to properly support your neck and head regardless of whether you’re sleeping on your back or head. The pillow is soft, fluffy and comfortable, and it easily adapts to your movements if you tend to switch positions during the night.
All of this, coupled with a more-than-competitive price tag, make this pillow a worthy investment. Although you might not stop snoring completely, you will reduce snoring frequency significantly.
If you're wondering should you spend money on this product – don't. You absolutely should. This one's easily of the best value products on the market. Even though it might not “reduce snoring by 50%” like Silentnight claims it will do – it's not like it won't do anything. You will snore more quietly, which does translate to a healthier night of sleep, both for you and your partner.
But also, this is an overall good pillow. It is soft and comfortable enough for pretty much anyone to sleep on, but it is also supportive, which is something that we often ignore when it comes to pillows.
All in all, this pillow is a worthy investment by all means.
We were really looking forward to testing this one because when you sleep for a living, it can be quite annoying having someone that snores right next to you. We had a perfect tester for this one, and we also invited some outside helpers, or better yet, “test subjects”, since most of us don't snore.
As per usual, the ordering process was easy – free delivery, fast delivery, and all that jazz. The package came in perfect condition, so, nothing out of the ordinary here.
Testing Silentnight Anti Snore pillow was quite simple. A few of our team members focused on things like support and comfort, quality of build, firmness etc. But the more important part was recording our resident snorer and some outside helpers while they sleep.
This test took several nights to complete. Essentially, we needed to record our test subjects snoozing on a regular pillow in order to compare results once they’ve slept on Anti Snore pillow. As we've already said, we haven't noticed any improvements as far as frequency of snoring is concerned, but our test subjects did sleep noticeably quieter, which is something both we and the app we've used had picked up on.
We thought that an appropriate way to end this would be to answer some FAQs, so let's do that.
Not quite. At 15 cm, the Silentnight Luxury Anti-Snore pillow is too thick for stomach sleepers.

It all depends, but on average, you can expect to get around three years out of this pillow.
