Brooklyn Bedding recently launched a new latex pillow that is made of Talalay latex. It truly caters to all types of sleepers. I have tried shredded latex pillows in the past and thought they were superior to solid latex pillows but this pillow proved me wrong. Latex is very resilient and recovers instantly which is something foam just can’t do.
Ordering and Unboxing the Brooklyn Bedding Pillow
You can get this pillow direct through their website at the best price. It’s made in the USA so shipping is fast. Below is me unboxing the pillow. Notice that although it comes wrapped and compressed it bounces into shape instantly.

My Brooklyn Bedding Pillow Findings
I really enjoy how this pillow feels. It is the softest latex pillow I have slept on. I appreciate that it is not too thick either. As a stomach sleeper, I can sleep on it with my arm underneath the pillow without putting my neck out of alignment. I also sometimes switch to my side and this pillow supports me just fine.
You will notice a smell with this pillow for a few days. That’s just the natural smell of latex which will go away eventually. The charcoal infused bamboo cover looks very nice and I like that it is removable in case you want to wash it. As I mention in the video, the pillow has a tiny hole that is created when pouring the latex into the pillow mold. This helps with breathing and keeps your head cool at night.
The only negative to this pillow that I have found is that the cover is dark. If you have white or a light colored pillowcase, the dark color can show through. This can be remedied with a white pillow protector but then you lose some of the breathability.
For those that prefer function over form, this has been the best latex pillow I have tried. The price is amazing too. It beats latex pillows that cost 3 times as much.
My Brooklyn Bedding Latex Pillow Recommendation
If you purchase this pillow through Brooklyn Bedding you get a 120 trial where you can return it if you don’t like it for a refund. They even send you a return label! If you purchase from Amazon you get a 30 return period but need to pay return shipping. It also comes with a 3-year warranty that protects against defects or indentations but I don’t see how anyone would be able to get anything under this warranty. Latex is very durable and it’s very unlikely that the pillow would fail to the requirements of the warranty. People are extremely picky about their pillows, much more so than mattresses so I can’t make any guarantees that you will like this one. All I can say is that the quality and value is there. Plus you have an excellent trial period.
