The Joy Mangano pillow has been selling like crazy over at Home Shopping Network. In fact, I couldn’t even buy one from the HSN site because they were still sold out and even as of this writing they are still sold out. Instead I had to buy on Amazon. I couldn’t find this product on Amazon Prime so also had to pay for shipping which was too bad but I really wanted to find out if this product was something truly innovative.

Overview

Here’s quick video of me opening the Joy Mangano pillow and giving an overview of its features

Findings

A few unique details of this pillow are that it has memory foam clusters. It also claims to have a cool and warm side so you can flip the pillow to your preference. I didn’t notice any substantial difference in cooling between the two sides.

This pillow is 100% polyester with a 100% polyurethane foam fill.  It measures 20″x 28″ wide and 4″ deep.

Here’s a closeup of the baffle edge side. The top side which is show is the “cooling” side of the pillow:

The opposite side has a knife edge:

Here’s Joy describing the pillow in her own words:

I found the pillow to be too firm and too big for my sleep style which is more of a stomach sleeper. I also found it to be lacking in neck support in comparison to other pillows I have tested. Because of this it’s also not a very cuddly pillow. HSN has the pillow selling for $39.95 plus $5.95 shipping and handling. Somehow they came up with a retail value of $129.99. I also had trouble getting this pillow in a standard pillow case and when I finally did, it just looked awkward and out of shape.

Conclusion

There are so many pillow choices on the market and I really don’t think this pillow contributes anything new. In my opinion it didn’t seem to sleep cooler than any “non cooling” pillows I have reviewed. I found it to sleep hotter than the cooling pillows such as the Bedgear Thunder Pillow

    I actually opened the pillow up and took out some of the stuffing because of the stiffness. I needed to punch down and mold it to make it more comfortable. So I threw away what was too much filling, and then sewed it back up again.

    I love this pillow, but I cannot seem to find it anymore. Did Joy quit making them? The best pillow I have ever had. It washes up very nicely and come out of the dryer nice and fluffy. I would give anything to get another set. If anyone knows where I can get a set of these, please let me know! I’ve had mine over 5 years and it isstill as comfortable as the day I bought it, but I would like a new set.

    I just used this particular pillow for the first time. WONDERFUL!
    I’m a side sleeper mostly.
    At first I’m thinking this isn’t going to work..then it conformed to my head and shoulders. I went right to sleep. This morning no shoulder pain and I feel great!
    I’m 5’1′ and 71 yrs. old.
    I say just give this pillow a chance. You’ll love your rested body.
    Oh. Use my I like an extra pillow to cuddle. Went to sleep so fast didn’t need it.

    I got this pillow from my grandma’s house after she passed. I have a pinched nerve in my neck and carpal tunnel. This is the ONLY pillow that’s ever worked for me. I’ve had it about 10 years now and need another. Where can I find one?
