I have reviewed hundreds of mattresses, sheets, pillows, duvet inserts, comforters, sleep gadgets, and adjustable beds. My reviews are based on my personal experience and the feedback I get from customers.

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.


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


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.


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
