The Pillow Cube is the latest pillow to take social media by storm. The premise is that it is designed solely for side sleepers that need adequate support without the bulk of a regular pillow. I admit I thought it was a great idea but in reality, it does have some drawbacks. Namely the price. For this review, I purchased the Pillow Cube Pro for $119.99. So for just shy of $120 I get a cubed shaped piece of foam with a zippered cover. If that’s too much, you can always go with the Pillow Cube classic for $69.99. Below are my findings from ordering to sleeping on it.
Ordering the Pillow Cube
If you have been of Facebook or Instagram lately, you have probably seen ads for the Pillow Cube. Their website has a funky 90s retro vibe to it. When I ordered mine, it arrived in less than a week but depending on demand it may take longer. Thankfully they will let you know if they are expecting delays before you place your order.
Here’s a picture of the Cube Pillow Pro in the box before I opened it. It is folded in half to fit in the box.
Here it is out of the box and unfolded and you can see that it has a rectangular shape in comparison to the original which is cube shaped.
This pillow has a zippered cover has is presumably washable. It does not come with a pillowcase which is a shame because it is an odd-shaped pillow. You can put it in a regular pillowcase but it will look funny. You can buy a pillowcase for an extra $20 which will just add to the overall price. I decided to just use a regular pillowcase. No matter what, it’s going to look a little odd on your bed.
Here’s a picture of the inside of the pillow. It is a solid piece of foam. There really isn’t much information on the construction of this pillow such as the type and density of foam used but it is a squishy foam so make sure you get the right height of pillow for your frame. I went with the 6 inch which is the thickest size they make.
How Much Does the Pillow Cube Cost?
You can choose between the Pro which is $119.99 or the Original Cube Pillow which is $69.99. Pillow Cube offers a refund within 60 days of purchase but will charge you a $20 return shipping fee so it’s not a free trial.
My Pillow Cube Findings
The Cube Pillow is certainly not for everyone. In fact it is designed specifically for side sleepers. There’s no way this is going to work if you change positions at night. If you try and sleep on your stomach it will be way too thick and you will have the same issue while trying to sleep on your back. I think this is a novel idea for a pillow and it really solves a common issue for side sleepers where the pillow is usually too thin and doesn’t provide adequate support for your head. With this pillow, you no longer have to scrunch up your pillow and constantly adjust it at night to get the proper loft. Although at this price it does seem a bit expensive considering it is a cubed piece for foam.
