Features you should know about Slumberdown Super Support pillow
In this part of our review, we are going to analyze most important features of this pillow. You can find out more about type of support, filling material, maintenance and hypoallergenic properties.
Slumberdown Super Support pillow offers firm support, and when they designed it, they certainly had side sleepers in mind. As most people sleep on the side, more than two thirds of people in the UK, then this pillow will suit many, especially those who like firmer support pillow. With just the right position of their bodies, they will sleep well.
It provides firm support, but not too firm. On a firmness scale of 1 to 10, it deserves 6, but provides support as if it is 7 or even 8. That’s more than enough support to keep the head, neck and back properly aligned even with heavier people. In the morning you will wake up pain-free, because you will sleep in the correct position all night.
This pillow is filled with 100% polyester fiber called Dacron fibre. Dacron filling is soft and breathable, making this pillow comfortable and suitable for hot sleepers. Dacron filling helps carry excess moisture away from your body, so you will always have a dry sleep surface.
If you are wondering how this pillow is so supportive, and it has Dacron filling which is soft, the reason is the unique core block that provides firm support. Dacron filling has a role to make your sleep comfortable, as support is not the only important feature for a pillow.
Washing & drying machine-friendly
Although you can’t see that with the naked eye, every night your face leaves dead skin cells, oils and other things on the pillow. So even though the pillow is seemingly clean, it must be washed regularly to avoid sleeping in a dirty environment, as this can lead to acne and other problems.
This pillow is fully machine washable at 40 degrees C. It is recommended to use mild detergents. Also, it is dryer friendly, which is great because it often happens that the pillow core is not completely dry if you just hang it dry.
None of the materials used for production of Slumberdown Super Support pillow aren’t likely to cause allergies. Also, chemicals and toxins that can cause allergies and irritations have not been used. That is why this is a 100% hypoallergenic product that is safe for all allergy sufferers, people with asthma and other similar respiratory problems.
Review of Slumberdown Super Support pillow
Slumberdown Super Support pillow is one of the most supportive pillows for side sleepers on the market. This medium support pillow will hold the head and neck of each side sleeper in an ideal position, thus enabling spine alignment. The foam core with Hollowfibre will reduce everyday aches so you won’t feel any neck/shoulder pain. Back and side sleepers have reported a lot better sleep experience after sleeping on this pillow.
Along with side sleepers, those who sleep on their backs will like this pillow because it will be comfortable and supportive for them too. It is filled with 100% polyester Dacron fibers that are soft, comfy and breathable. Still, it is not one of those soft pillows that are good for the first two months before they lose their firmness.
The pillow comes with a soft touch microfibre cover that will ensure nothing but a great night’s sleep. It is a firm pillow that is fully machine washable and you can tumble dry it. Slumberdown is part of the John Cotton Group, established in 1916, based in West Yorkshire, UK so this pillow is made in the UK, supporting local industries. With such a background, you can be sure that this pillow is going to give you a comfortable night’s sleep.
- Type: Dacron polyester fibres
- Removable cover: No

What makes this product better than some other similar ones?
are a lot of comfortable and supportive pillows on the United Kingdom market, but we haven’t had a chance to try a lot of pillows that are as supportive as this one, and yet comfortable. By using this pillow, side and back sleepers will eliminate neck pain. And if they do not have neck pain, then they should use this pillow as prevention. It is hypoallergenic and machine washable which is also worth mentioning. The next time you consider using two soft pillows to ensure enough support without compromising firmness, remember that this one comes as the perfect solution!
How did we test the product?
You won’t have to wait more than a few days for your Slumberdown Super Support pillow to arrive, if you live in the UK Mainland.
Off-gassing was not present, so we were able to start the overnight test immediately. However, we decided to wash it first after the quality inspection. In this way, we conducted a maintenance test, and also provided ourselves with a completely clean sleep environment, and we recommend that to you too.
During the overnight test, we tested it in all three sleep positions, although we knew in advance that it is not good fit for stomach sleeping, but we wanted to see for ourselves. It is definitely not a great one for stomach sleepers, although we also tested some pillows that are even less suitable for stomach sleepers than this one.
The side sleeper from our test team was very pleased and had no complaints. The back sleeper found this pillow comfortable, although not as much as the side sleepers. Breathability is good, albeit we might have expected it to be a little better in that field.
