Care Instructions

Every pillow we make has a machine washable (and tumble dry) cover, just remove the fill before washing. There is a hidden zipper on the back of all our pillows that makes this easy.

The best way to keep them clean is to use one of our amazing pillowcases on it. They help protect your pillow, are a piece of cake to wash and dry, and they feel incredible! They make your pillow more cooling, and are unbelievably soft. Your skin will thank you :)

    As Seen On

    Always Ahead of the Curve

    One size fits all does not apply to all aspects of life.

    Every person is unique. We sleep in different positions, and traditional rectangular pillows aren’t designed to support our neck and shoulders perfectly across every different sleeping position.

    The Essence of Sweet Dreams

    The gentle curve on the Essence Side Pillow is one of those things that makes sense immediately when you lay down upon it.

    This simple change in the geometry of your pillow allows it to naturally support your neck and shoulders regardless of whether you sleep on your side or your back.

    Not only does this pillow offer proper neck alignment and support, but it feels unlike any other pillow in the world.

    It's What is on the Inside That Counts

    We craft all of our fill in house, using custom made machinery that allows us to make the fill that we always dreamed of.

    The fill is the most important part of your pillow, and it literally took years of prototypes and testing before we found the perfect blend of materials, in the perfect ratio that gave us the combination of support and softness that we were looking for.

    Unleash Your Inner Beauty

    When it comes to materials, we use only the best of the best. The foam component of our fill is 100% CertiPUR-US certified virgin gel. Here’s what that means: CertiPUR-US certification means that our foam is made healthier than non-certified foam (click here to learn more). Gel means it doesn’t get hot like other foams. Virgin means that it is created exclusively for us, to our exacting specifications.

    The fiber we use is soft like the finest silk, and feels incredible. It is nearly indistinguishable in feel from the most expensive down, without the allergy issues that down has. The best part – it sleeps cool, all night long.

    Infused With Passion, Dedication, and Expertise

    Here at Honeydew, we won’t settle for anything less than the best. We believe in the power of sleep, and we know we can make lives better.

    We put our heart and soul into every one of our hand crafted pillows, and it shows. They truly are in a class of their own.

    As great as that is, at the end of the day your pillow has to work for YOU, not us. Our pillows are designed with this in mind.

    Think Outside the Box

    All of our pillows have a discreetly hidden zipper that lets you add or remove fill to make sure our pillow is the perfect height for your body. After all, nobody knows what you need better than you.

    We may have designed the greatest pillow in the world, but you are the one that makes it perfect.

    Hand Crafted in California

    Here at Honeydew Sleep, we proudly make all of our pillows the old-fashioned way:

    With love, by hand, in the USA.

    We are so confident that you are going to love your new pillow, that we offer a risk free 60-day trial on every pillow that we sell. That's right, free shipping both ways.

    What are you waiting for?
    Trust us, you are worth it.

    A game changer for those with neck pain

    This pillow is the only one I can use now. It has made such a difference for the chronic pain in my neck and shoulders. The material is dense but soft and it’s breathable so I don’t get too hot. The curved shape kind of snuggles you and gives your face support while you sleep on your side. My toddler daughter has also become obsessed with it so I lost my original pillow to her and bought another one. It takes a few days to get used to this new style of pillow but trust. I have to use it exclusively now and take it everywhere- even the hospital when I delivered my son!

    It’s just ok!

    I like the cutout for the shoulders but the pillow is lacking enough support for me. I have chronic neck and shoulders pain and I’ve tried many pillows. I was hoping this one would be the one but it’s not. Its’ comfortable but it doesn't have enough support and I wake up with tensions in the neck. It might work for other people but not for me.

    Never Slept Better

    We purchased 2 side sleeper pillows with cases and 1 body pillow. My husband swears he’s never slept better. I absolutely love my new body pillow and side sleeper pillow. I ordered these awesome pillows and received them in time for my recuperating a shoulder replacement surgery. The body pillow fits perfectly. Our daughter, a Pilates instructor, told us about the Honeydew family-owned business, made here in USA. She is also sharing her love for her side sleeper pillow with all her referral-only clients in California. Best purchase we’ve made in years. We deserve the best and purchased the best. Thank you Honeydew, we’re telling all our friends about your products.

    Most amazing pillow!

    I have not only discovered the best pillow available, but the best customer service to back it up! The Essence side sleeper has a density and weight to it that I can only compare to the comforts and relief that come with a weighted blanket, which I think they should consider making next! 😉 I just underwent surgery and am confined to my bed for recovery, couldn’t be happier to be spending all day snuggling my pillow! Thank you Honeydew!

    No improvement to sleep, way overpriced

    It's not an improvement on my existing pillow. In fact it seems to put my neck in an awkward position. I had to stop using it. I can't believe I paid so much for this when it did not help my sleeping comfort at all.

    Hi Teresa, sorry to hear your pillow didn't work out for you! I just wanted to let you know that all of our pillows are adjustable, letting you customize the height, firmness, and angle that your neck is in while sleeping. This should let you make it perfect for your body, but if not I wanted to make sure you knew that we offer a 60 night money back guarantee on all of our pillows :)

    Amazing Company

    Honestly, I can only say amazing things about this company. Jonathan is amazing and is always so kind to email with. He provides amazing customer service. The products are top notch and are the best pillows I have ever had. If you are unsure to try, trust me you will not regret trying. I know the pillows are not cheap but you are paying for amazing quality so it's worth it!

    Purchased for myself, but now

    Purchased for myself, but now husband using it. Love the pillow and (wonderful promotion getting a free pillow case with purchase). Have to purchase one for ME! Cradles the neck, perfect for side, back and tummy sleepers as well. Try it, great customer service. You will not be sorry.

    Essence Side Sleeper

    I have fibromyalgia and have been looking for a pillow to support my painful neck and shoulders for years. I've had this pillow for at least 2 years and it's the best pillow I've tried. (I could probably open my own pillow store I have tried so many for over 30 years!) I will always use this pillow, great for side and sleeping on my back. Cannot recommend it highly enough!
