THE CHRONIC SNORER’S REVIEW
9 August 2018
I’m a chronic (meaning LOUD), intermittent (off-on, day to day, week to week) snorer. After finding that I snore loudly enough to wake both myself and my partner (and guests in an adjoining bedroom and probably the dead too), having tried sleeping with, and without a pillow, to no avail, I decided to try one of these funny-shaped pillows. I chose this pillow because I realised that my normal sleeping positions were not allowing my airways to stay open (bring a First Aider helped in understanding this), sleeping on my back and mostly my side as I do.
Being a mouth-snorer and recognising that it’s my soft palate effecting a sound like Hades at the Gates of the Underworld, I needed a pillow that either kept my head tilted slightly back when on my back or that kept my spine in a straight alignment, thus keeping my oesophagus and upper trachea unrestricted as I slept...
I’m pleased to say this pillow does just that! My head is kept at the correct height from the mattress ensuring my spine is straight when on my side, and by reversing the pillow I can sleep on my back, the gentle slope and ‘head-dimple’ allows my head to tip back slightly opening my airway. It also gives me fantastic support for my neck muscles (being one of those people who often wake up in the morning with a crick in their neck). I can literally feel/hear myself breathing more easily as I fall asleep, which in itself is very restful. I get a great night’s kip now and I don’t wake my liebling, who then wakes me...round and round, you know the score! No more grumpy mornings!
The only downside is that the night feels too short to enjoy sleeping on this thing...
The Bits and Bobs- it was packaged nicely in its own carry bag. It didn’t have a chemical smell. It can comfortably fit inside a normal pillow case. The pillow has a quality feel and finish. The cover supplied is lovely and soft without feeling ‘sickly’ soft. The memory foam is just the right combination of softness and firmness needed (other pillows in the past have almost given me a cauliflower ear!). It’s marginally smaller than the average pillow size but all the better for it because it works so well!
So Full Marks to the maker! Jolly Good! Cannot recommend highly enough!
