A good pillow can be worth its weight in cold, for pillow fights and sleep quality alike. So, in this Silentnight Squishy Pillow review, we're going to see whether this is the pillow for you!

It can be somewhat difficult to gauge what makes for a good pillow. Is it all about comfort? Or do you just go with the highest-rated pillow? Well, it actually varies from person to person, depending on how you sleep and your body.

That's why we make these reviews and go through pillow by pillow, determining which ones will suit which kinds of people. And in this Silentnight Squishy Pillow review we're doing the same thing! So, let's see whether the Silentnight Squishy Pillow is the perfect pillow for you or whether you should keep looking.

Who is the Silentnight Squishy pillow ideal for?

It’s ideal for back sleepers, and that’s also the opinion of the Silentnight company. When we talk about side and stomach sleepers, opinions are divided. In general, it could be suitable for combination sleepers, but this is not always the case.

Many side sleepers will use it, but some will find it insufficiently supportive. Loft is too high for most stomach sleepers, but for those with a higher BMI, it can be good because it is soft so they may be able to achieve spine alignment. Silentnight Squishy pillow is great for allergy sufferers as well.

What is this pillow good for?

We use Silentnight Squishy pillow for an ultra comfortable night's sleep. It can be said that every pillow is used for that reason, but cloud-like comfort is the main feature of this pillow. We also use it because of its hypoallergenic properties, as well as because of medium support it provides. So, to summarise everything – this effortlessly smooth pillow ensures:

Features you should know about the Silentnight Squishy pillow

In this part of our Silentnight Squishy pillow review, we will break down the most important features you should know about before deciding on buying this pillow.

an image of Silentnight Squishy Pillow fill
Fluffy DuPont cluster fibres

DuPont has been one of the world leaders in the polymer and textile industry since the early 1900s and has created many innovative fibers. They have always tended to produce highly durable, yet very light fibres. And also they are doing their best to make both fibres and whole process of manufacturing eco-friendly.

So Silentnight decided to use DuPont cluster fibers as a filling for this pillow. These fibres are so fluffy and provides squishy, ​​cuddly softness that leads to a luxurious feeling and a truly relaxing night's sleep. Thanks to DuPont cluster fibers, this pillow is so comfortable, but it also has gentle support, to prevent you from sinking in too much.

Medium level of firmness

The goal of the Silentnight company when they created this pillow was to achieve medium firmness. Although they succeeded to some extent, because DuPont cluster fibres are not unsupportive and not completely soft, we would still position this pillow on a scale of 1 to 10 very close to soft pillows.

On a firmness scale of 1 to 10, this pillow is somewhere between 4 and 5. This definitely gives a great balance of comfort and support for the back sleepers. If it is just a little firmer, it would be equally comfortable for all sleep positions. This way it will depend on what exactly the side and stomach sleepers are looking for when buying a pillow.

Hypoallergenic from-head-to-toe

Another great quality of this unique pillow is 100% absence of harmful chemicals. For all people who have allergies, which is somewhere between 10 and 30 percent of the population in the UK and USA, the most important feature of any sleep product is that it is hypoallergenic. It is also recommended for those who do not have allergies to buy hypoallergenic products because anyone who is exposed to allergens can develop an allergy at any age.

Silentnight Squishy pillow is 100% hypoallergenic because both cover and filling are hypoallergenic. This pillow is very kind to skin and highly unlikely to cause any allergy problems.

2-year warranty

Silentnight Squishy pillow comes with a 2 year warranty, which is common for the sleep industry. This is an affordable pillow so the 2 year warranty is great. It is important to check the whole pillow as soon as it arrives, so that you do not have problems replacing it later in case something happens during those 2 years.

Review of the Silentnight Squishy pillow

a product image of silentnight squishy pillow package

Silentnight Squishy pillow is a pillow especially comfortable for back sleepers. Everywhere it is emphasised how soft and comfy this pillow is, but you should know that it also provides support, quite enough even for many side and stomach sleepers.

Filling is made of DuPont cluster fibres and velvet touch cover further affects softness and comfort. It is hypoallergenic and machine washable, so it is easy to always keep it clean and fresh. It comes with a 2 year warranty.


  • Size: 70 x 48 cm
  • Cover: Polyester (98%) & elastane (2%)
  • Filling: Memory foam

Check the alternatives to the Silentnight Squishy pillow

Let’s take a look at the pillows offered by Simba and Nectar, so you can compare them to the Silentnight Squishy pillow or find an alternative if the Squishy pillow doesn’t suit you.

Simba Hybrid pillow

a product image of simba hybrid pillow with stratos

Add or remove Nanocubes and make the perfect loft and support for yourself. The Nanocubes are located in the middle of the Simba Hybrid pillow, and above and below are the temperature-regulating layers that are astronaut-inspired.

Mesh borders for maximum airflow plus breathable Nanocubes and temperature control layers make this pillow perfect for hot sleepers.

So, not only can hot sleepers remain cool even during the summer but you can rest assured the pillow will fit your sleeping style!

Therefore, even though the pillow isn't exactly cheap, we'd say it's still worth it – as you're unlikely to run into any problems whatsoever!

Premium Nectar Pillow

a product image of nectar premium pillow

Premium Nectar pillow is often bought by couples because you get a pair of pillows. This also adds to the overall value of the product. After all, even one of these pillows is worth the price, let alone two!

It has the usual characteristics of memory foam pillows but with improved breathability. So, it's also a good option for hot sleepers.

Instead of a single block of memory foam, shredded pieces of memory foam are used for filling. Tencil fabric, obtained from eucalyptus, in combination with polyester, gives breathable, durable and hypoallergenic cover.

So, it's better than a regular memory foam pillow in more ways than one.

The pillow is very breathable.

Great for neck pain
The pillow has very high pressure relief.

Not machine washable
This makes maintenance a bit mroe difficult.

Support. Consider Mela Weighted Blanket if you are buying the Silentnight Squishy pillow

If you bought a super-soft and comfy Silentnight Squishy pillow, you need to get yourself an additional piece of sleep equipment – a weighted blanket.

Make your sleep even more comfortable with the Mela Weighted Blanket.

In this way, you can positively treat insomnia, anxiety, depression, PTSD  and other similar problems. The Mela Weighted Blanket is high quality, composed of 7 layers, and comes in a few different weights.

So, whether you're getting it for your child or for yourself, you'll likely find the perfect weight. Just make sure that the blanket isn't heavier than 10% of the weight of the person using it!

This is a high-quality weighted blanket.
Ideal for naps
This weighted blanket can help you relax and take the best naps in your life.

Not the cheapest
There are definitely cheaper weighted blankets.

What makes this product better than some other similar ones?

We at The Sleep Advisors would single out softness as a feature that makes the Silentnight Squishy pillow better than some other similar ones. The incredible softness and comfort that this pillow gives you, but also with a dose of support make this product really great.

How did we test the product?

An image of the silentnight squishy pillow on a bed

We believe you can’t wait to lie down on your new Silentnight Squishy pillow but you have to be patient and wait 3 to 5 working days for delivery and don’t count on free delivery, as it is a product cheaper than £ 49 and below that limit you have to pay extra for delivery.

As soon as you take it out of the plastic bag in which it is packed, you will notice how soft it is. We didn't notice any off-gassing, so you can use it right away. If you want it to smell nice, then first wash it in the washing machine at 40 degrees Celsius, using a mild detergent. It can be tumble dried, so even if you decide to wash it, it can be ready to use within a few hours. We did so before the overnight test.

The first night of testing it was used by a back sleeper and we literally couldn’t separate him from this pillow in the morning. Due to its irresistible squishy comfort, he considers this one of the most comfortable pillows for back sleepers in the United Kingdom market. It was then tested by side and stomach sleepers, who were satisfied, but also found a few flaws. That is why they cannot say that this pillow will suit everyone in these sleep positions. It will depend on each individual.
