One of the things we are most proud of is the fact that TEMPUR pillows are different to many of the conventional pillows available today. Whether you’re talking design, quality, range, or simply the outstanding level of support and comfort our pillows offer, it is this difference that sets us apart from our competition.

What we also understand, however, is that by being different, we may need to answer some questions regarding how our pillows work, and what they can offer. That’s why on this page, we will list answers to some of the questions we are most commonly asked, so you can find out for yourself why different is better.

Designed to offer pressure-relieving support within a huggable, easily-shaped design, the Comfort, Traditional and Ombracio pillows are made up of shredded TEMPUR material, enclosed in a TEMPUR membrane.

Within the TEMPUR Ergonomic pillow collection, the Original, Symphony and Millennium pillows are made from TEMPUR material poured into moulds. This provides consistent, all night support, without the need for shifting or reshaping.

At TEMPUR, we do not outsource the manufacture of any of our pillows. This allows us to retain the highest manufacturing and design standards with each and every pillow we create. All TEMPUR pillows are made in Denmark.

TEMPUR pillows are made to last, which is why we offer a three year warranty on all of our pillows as part of our TEMPUR Guarantee. That means you can rely on your TEMPUR pillow to offer the same great level of comfort and support on day 1095 as it does on day 1.

While you may see conventional pillows on sale at ‘bargain’ prices, you should think about what a pillow should offer before you buy.
First, consider how much time you spend in bed asleep. Your head will rest on your pillow for around eight hours each night, or in other words, one-third of each day. With that much time in use, you need your pillow to offer durability, while also providing the support your head and neck needs to stay properly aligned throughout the night.
Cheap conventional pillows tend not to last long, and it’s unlikely they provide the support you need either. That means, not only will you have to spend more money to replace them sooner – creating waste that is not great for the environment – you may also not benefit from comfort or support over time.
On the other hand, TEMPUR pillows offer superior design, with options to suit various sleep styles and preferences. They are built to last, with each TEMPUR pillow offering a three-year warranty. Not only that, TEMPUR pillows are the only pillows to be endorsed by NASA.
So, are TEMPUR pillows worth it? While the initial outlay may be somewhat larger than cheap conventional pillows, TEMPUR pillows provide durability, quality and support from day one, allowing you to invest in your quality of sleep and your comfort over the long term.

Instead of simply asking what is the best TEMPUR pillow, you need to ask what is the best TEMPUR pillow for you. With a wide range on offer, TEMPUR pillows are designed to suit all sleep styles and preferences. So, to find the best TEMPUR pillow for you, you first need to think about how you sleep.
To do this, consider what you want from your pillow. Do you want an ergonomic pillow that is contoured to your head and neck? Within the TEMPUR Ergonomic pillow collection, you can find options that feature design shaping to offer contouring and support for the sleep position you favour most.
Alternatively, if you prefer traditional pillow shaping, you can choose from the TEMPUR Traditional pillow collection. Within this collection, you can choose your pillow according to your sleep style and your preferred level of firmness.

When you get a new pillow, no matter what type of pillow you opt for, there is likely to be a period of adjustment as you get used to the way it feels.
How long it takes to get used to your new TEMPUR pillow will usually depend on the type of pillow you choose. If you opt for a TEMPUR pillow from the Traditional pillow collection, this will have the feel of a conventional pillow, so there shouldn’t be much of an adjustment period. You may find it softens up slightly over time.
If you opt for a pillow from the Ergonomic pillow collection, there will be a period of adjustment where you will need to allow for the cells within the TEMPUR material to open fully. As these cells open in response to body heat, you may find it helpful to sit on your pillow initially. Over time, the cells will open naturally, to allow for a softer feel.
