What sleep position is best for the Hibr Side Sleeper Pillow?

Hibr Pillow is best for side sleepers. This is a no brainer given the name but I also slept with the pillow on my back and also thought the pillow slept very nice. The cut out portion of the pillow is perfect for side sleeping. As a side sleeper, I adjust my pillow so many times in the night. I didn’t wake up 10 times a night like I normally do to adjust with the Hibr Side Sleeper Pillow because my arm fits perfectly under it.

My neck is usually my biggest pain point but with the Hibr Side Sleeper Pillow, my spine was perfectly aligned so I woke up pain free. Considering that most people may not know this type of pillow exists, especially if you sleep on your side, this pillow will change your life.

Tell me more about the Hibr cover.

The cover of the Hibr pillow is removable and can be washed in the washing machine on delicate cycle. You could use it without a pillow case but I always recommend putting a pillow case on it. The cover is light and breathes well throughout the night.

What’s under Hibr Pillow cover?

The Hibr Side Sleeper is made of gel infused memory foam. This allows the pillow to sleep cool throughout the sleep experience. In addition to the gel infused into the memory foam, solid gel capsules are imbedded into the high quality memory foam. Hibr Side Sleeper Pillow breathes well and sleeps cool. There’s nothing  worse than waking up hot. Heat retention is something Hibr mastered with this pillow.

What Size is the Hibr Pillow?

Does Hibr offer a sleep trial on their pillow?

Hibr offers all buyers a 100 day sleep trial. Hibr also allows you to swap your pillow out with another shape if you decide you prefer a shape other than what you bought.

Do you need to put a pillowcase over cooling pillows?

Do whatever is most comfortable to you. Sleepers who prefer cold pillows sometimes add a cooling pillow cover in order to keep their pillow clean. If your cooling pillow doesn’t have a removable cover, in this case you would need a cooling pillow case like the Slumbercloud Nacreous Pillow Cover. If you suffer from chronic hot sleeping, you should consider investing in a Bed Jet (from Sharktank). This bed cooling system keeps the sleeper’s body temperature maintained through air being forced under the sheets. Another option would be a ChiliPad which operates with the same goal in mind as the Bed Jet but pumps cold water through a mat under the sleeper’s body to keep their sleep surface temperature at the most preferred sleep temperature (and warm water if you tend to sleep cold)

Would we recommend the Hibr Cooling Pillow?

This review really changed how I recommend pillows. As a side sleeper, I have always been annoyed at having to adjust my pillow every night, multiple times a night. If you sleep with you arm under your pillow, Hibr would be extremely comfortable for you. If you don’t sleep with your arm under the pillow but still want a cold pillow cover that’s always cool to the touch, the TempurPedic Breeze Cooling Pillow would be a better fit for you.

Does the Hibr Pillow Stay Cool?

In most cases they do not need them and it is up to personal preference. However, it is easier to keep a pillow case clean which is also important for health and good sleep.
