There are 3 different types of Tempurpedic pillows and 13 styles of memory foam pillows in all that Tempur-Pedic offers. How do these compare with latex foam pillows, especially for people with allergies?
Each memory foam style category has something unique to offer in the way of comfort and support, so just about everyone who likes Tempurpedic foam can find a pillow that works well for them.
All of their pillows are resistant to allergens, mold, and dust mite infestations and so can work well as an allergy pillow, if you are not bothered by the chemicals in memory foam.
Some people with allergies or chemical sensitivities do experience health problems from using memory foam, so be sure that your memory foam pillow comes with a money back guarantee, or some way that you can give it a test drive! :-)
The contoured pillow by Tempurpedic is manufactured from one piece of the patented TEMPUR memory foam. It's designed to naturally align your body from head to toe so you can enjoy a full night's rest without interruption. Each comes with a zippered, removable, and washable cover.
Tempurpedic filled pillows are sleeves of fabric filled with tiny cushions of memory foam that you can shape, mold, push or pull into the exact shape you need for your ultimate comfort.
The filled pillows provide gentle molding to the head and neck area so that side sleepers and back sleepers can enjoy a good night's sleep.
Unless otherwise noted, each pillow comes with a removable, washable cover.
Side sleepers also appreciate the versatility of this medium-firm pillow. The cover is made from a high quality bamboo and silk blend fabric. Price: $199.00
These pillows are basically smaller, more compact versions of the full size pillows. They're ideal for sleeping in a vehicle or on an airplane while traveling or in a hotel if you prefer to bring your own pillow. Take it outside to rest your head on the chaise lounge or hammock too!
Is there a big difference between memory foam and latex pillows? The differences seem to be, according to consumers, in the comfort level, the odor, and affordability.
Latex pillows tend to be a bit more springy or bouncy, which many people like because they don't remember your shape and therefore you can move around more during the night and still enjoy immediate support and comfort each time you reposition your head and neck.
Memory foam pillows remember your position, which means each time you move, the foam takes time to readjust to your new position. This delay can cause some people to struggle with sleep throughout the night.
When you lay your head on a memory foam pillow, you feel like you're sinking. Latex pillows feel more like you're floating and supported.
Latex foam pillows tend to clump and disfigure less quickly than memory foam pillows.
The biggest difference between memory foam pillows and latex pillows is the way they're manufactured. Memory foam is a polyurethane-based foam whereas latex foam comes from natural sap from rubber trees.
Memory foam inherently has less airflow than latex foam. Allergy sufferers tend to prefer latex foam pillows over memory foam because it's naturally resistant to dust, dust mites, mold, and other allergens.
Some people have reported breathing difficulties after sleeping on a memory foam pillow.
Both pillows have a strong odor when they're first opened and must be aired out completely before use. A good fabric cover with a dense weave can help to alleviate this obstacle.
Standard size latex pillows have a lower price point than Tempurpedic pillows, which is yet another reason they're a popular purchase. You can find them for as low as $40 or as high as $55.
Obviously, the larger the pillow is, the higher the price point. King size organic latex pillows are probably the most expensive ranging from $160 to $165.
Either way, the latex foam pillow is definitely a strong competitor to memory foam pillows as far as price range.
