The Sleepgram Down-Alternative Pillow is a beautiful pillow. Sleepgram’s appeal is their emphasis on customization. Not only have they produced a great looking and great feeling pillow, but there’s two more inside. The pillow comes with a fluffy outer layer and you’ll find 2 more with the pull of a zipper. One layer has a red tab, which is more firm, the other layer has a blue tab, which is softer. The idea here is that you can change up the arrangement until you find a firmness best suited to your preferences. The company was founded in 2016 by two friends from Los Angeles.

  • The ability to customize provides a few different options
  • Identical in feel to a down pillow
  • Designed in the USA, Made in China
  • Looks like a high end, hotel quality pillow
  • A little on the pricey side, with a single Queen size pillow starting at $65
  • Can only be purchased directly from their site

Overview of the Sleepgram Down-Alternative Pillow

The best way to get your hands on this pillow is through the Sleepgram website. Here’s what it looks like out of the box.

Below is a video unboxing, demo and review of the Sleepgram Down-Alternative Pillow.

Construction of the Sleepgram Pillow

The Sleepgram Down-Alternative Pillow is available in Queen and King sizes. Their website also offers pretty hefty discounts for 2 packs, 4 packs or 6 packs, if you like sleeping with a lot of pillows, or just have a big family.

My Sleepgram Pillow Review

There were a few things I noticed immediately about the Sleepgram pillow and I’ll mention them all in order.

To start off, I really appreciated the modern and distinct packaging. It’s nice to see that a company even included branded packaging in their business equation. It just says a lot. One could assume that if they’re meticulous about how a package, with their product inside of it, looks, then it says that they’ll pay the same attention to detail, when it comes to the actual product development.

Second, the pillow felt like a high-end item. The materials on the inside and out felt great to the touch. It really felt like a down pillow, even though it was not but that’s the point, right? The Sleepgram Down-Alternative Pillow is soft, soft, soft. Yes, you get 3 options and I can appreciate that but this isn’t exactly a solid feeling pillow. I like soft pillows, and their softest version (outer layer + blue tab pillow) of this pillow was just way too flat. The medium version (outer layer + red tab pillow) of it, however, and the firm version (outer layer + both red and blue pillows), were the best.

It’s fluffy. It’s comfortable. It’s a genuinely pleasant pillow but I do not recommend this for someone who prefers firmer pillows or for someone who is used to foam pillows. It would absolutely not suit them. This pillow is for that one person that wants to be held by their bedding when they sleep. This is for the person who wants more than just a platform for their head at night.

My Sleepgram Pillow Recommendation

The Sleepgram Down-Alternative Pillow definitely does it’s job, in terms of looking and feeling the part. The pillow however, could be more firm than it is, if it’s meant to suit any type of sleeper, and any type of sleeping preference.

The thinnest layer inside the pillow (with the blue tab) provides no substantial support. The firm insert (with the red tab) provided much more support. I feel like Sleepgram could really upgrade the customization significantly if they provided more options. More options for firmness, by providing a layer with a higher density of microfibers, or even a foam layer, for those who might want a little bit of both, or those just curious to experiment. If this pillow is meant to be a one-size-fits-all approach, I think there is more to explore here.

However, if this pillow isn’t trying to be a pillow designed for everyone, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it being sold or targeted specifically to individuals who like soft pillows. Because this is a great soft pillow.

      I ordered those and found sadly out they had to be put in the dryer to work – The person I live with would not let me use their dryer so am having to
      send them back… Mailing them tomorrow. Here’s hoping!!

      1. They don’t have to be put in the dryer. You can let them expand, then fluff them like you would with any pillow.

    2. They say it’s machine washable and tumble dry

    3. It’s washable. The only part you’ll need to wash, most likely, is the outer case. It comes out OK if you follow instructions.

  1. What is it made from? Arevtherevpetro chemicals?

    Just a suggestion, but for a pillow review video it would’ve been nice if the review covered the reseasons that pillows are needed…these typically don’t include “sinkage” and the firmness of a pillow is for a reason. That reason supporting your neck so that the spine remains in an alined position as you sleep wasn’t even considered. This pillow’s designers claim that it (in particular) “craddles the nerves at the bass of the neck” a place where most pillows create stress by causing the neck to bend at an awkward angle all night leading to migraines and poor sleep. It would be greatly appreciated if you could redo the demo with pillow issues in mind and to also have knowledgeable spokesperson on these types of issue. Thanks for your time and consideration. Fibromyalgia, migraine, and degenerative disc disease sufferer…one quest for a pillow that doesn’t hurt me. :/

    This is RIP off. Please read fine print. A white comforter is sent to you for $8.95 trial period of 14 days. Then you are bullied $195 for a cheap comforter!!!! Pillows are good for a few days. Then, don’t hold shape. Wake frequently to reshape pillow.

    Sleeprgam hates its customers.
    Their shipping window is 2-7 days. If they screw up and don’t even start shipping for 8 days they will do NOTHING to make the situation right. In fact, they will charge you for the order you already paid for at a higher cost than you originally paid. Then when you call to get that fixed they will deny you expedited shipping to make their error even a little bit better.
    I was repeatedly refused access to a supervisor or anyone that could help me with my issue.
