Honeydew Sleep is a family-owned, California based company that sells innovative pillows that are made with some of the best materials available. I first met the founders of Honeydew 3 years ago and they truly are a family-run enterprise. They have been working in the sleep space for over 30 years and Honeydew represents their response to customer demand for a quality pillow.

By working directly with customers and listening to their needs in a pillow, Honeydew Sleep has produced a solid lineup of pillows that should have near-universal appeal.

Overview of the Honeydew Scrumptious and Essence Pillows

Here’s a video overview of the two pillows and the differences between the two.

 

Your pillows arrive in a box with attractive packaging.

It includes instructions maintenance and how to get the most out of your pillow.

The pillow is vacuum-sealed and rolled to save space. It inflates quickly and is ready to use right away. You also get a couple of pillowcases that are made from a bamboo fiber for a silky and breathable feel.

These pillows come with a 60-day trial which means you get to test it out for about 2 months to see if it’s a good fit. If you don’t like it, it’s a free return. If you decide to keep it, you a covered by a 3-year warranty that covers any defects in materials or workmanship, not normal wear and tear.

How Much Do Honeydew Pillows Cost?

Currently, the Scrumptious pillow retails for $99 while the Essence pillow retails for $79.

Construction of the Honeydew Pillow

Here you can see what’s inside the pillow. This pillow is made from cut foam and polyester fibers. These materials are becoming more common in high-end pillows because that mix is so comfortable and customizable. If you want a thinner pillow, simply pull some out and store it in a Ziploc bag for later use.

Although these materials are common, it is clear that Honeydew is using premium foam and it is cut in a consistent diamond pattern in small pieces. This gives the pillow a consistent feel, no lumps, and better contouring.

My Honeydew Pillow Findings

People who have broad shoulders should go with the Scrumptious model over the Essence. Inside they use the same materials but the Scrumptious as a gusseted edge making it thicker while the Essence has a knife-edge design for people that want a lower profile.

Honeydew pillow comparison

Both pillows I received have a shoulder cut out which is ideal for side sleeping. Honeydew also makes a standard shaped pillow.

Because of the unique design, you get custom shaped pillowcases that will curve towards the bottom. In a pinch you can always use a standard pillowcase, it really won’t take away from the feel.

Both the pillowcase and the pillow have zippers. Having a zipper on the pillowcase ensures that it won’t come loose from the pillow. The pillowcases you receive have a silky feel and are very breathable. You can choose the color below or white.

My Honeydew Recommendation

While there are pillows similar to Honeydew, I haven’t come across one that is this affordable. The side sleeper pillows I tried are truly unique and I strongly recommend them for dedicated side sleepers that may have neck or shoulder pain. Neck and shoulder pain are often indicative of a pillow not providing adequate support. Because the pillows are customizable, breathable, and affordable, they should be one of your first considerations. If you don’t like them you can always return them for a full refund within the trial period.

The Honeydew Scrumptious Side Sleeping Pillow is a great option for side sleepers who are looking for a supportive and comfortable pillow. It’s made with a shredded memory foam fill that conforms to your head and neck, and it has a curved design that cradles your shoulders. It’s also hypoallergenic and machine-washable.

Here are a few other pillows that are similar to the Honeydew Scrumptious Side Sleeping Pillow:

    • Coop Home Goods Eden Cool+ Cut-Out Pillow: This pillow is also made with shredded memory foam, but it has a unique cooling gel feature that helps to keep you cool at night. It also has a shoulder cut-out design that provides additional support for your shoulders.

    • Casper Hybrid Pillow: This pillow is a hybrid of latex foam and fiberfill, which gives it a unique feel that is both soft and supportive. It also has a cooling cover that helps to keep you cool at night.
    • Purple Harmony Pillow: This pillow is made with Purple’s signature Grid Hex material, which is a unique polymer that is both soft and supportive. It also has a breathable mesh cover that helps to keep you cool at night.

Ultimately, the best pillow for you will depend on your individual preferences. I recommend trying out a few different pillows to see which one you like best.

Here are some additional factors to consider when choosing a pillow:

    • Sleeping position: Side sleepers need a different type of pillow than back or stomach sleepers.
    • Fill material: Memory foam, latex foam, and down alternative are all popular pillow fill materials. Each has its own unique advantages and disadvantages.
    • Loft: The loft of a pillow is its height. You should choose a pillow that is the right loft for your sleeping position.
  • Firmness: Pillows come in a variety of firmness levels. You should choose a pillow that is the right firmness for you.
