I give the Cozydream pillow high marks across the board. The very positive reviews were a major contributing factor to my ratings decisions, and I’ll discuss those in the User Experiences section.
I give the Cozydream pillow a quality score of 9.2 out of 10. Its outer casing is 100% cotton, which is nice but not entirely special. I like that is uses a gel microfiber filling, unlike competing brands which often use loosely packed foam pieces. The whole pillow is very breathable and won’t have you waking up in the middle of the night needing to flip it around.
For comfort, the Cozydream pillow gets an 8.5 out of 10. It lost a point or so due to the fact that some people had complaints about the pillow flattening out quickly while in use. This is, of course, not a desirable quality in a pillow advertised as a luxury item. Some also complained that the pillow was too fluffy without being supportive.
In spite of some dissatisfied customers, the reviews were overwhelmingly positive. Additionally, the company offers a one-month trial of their pillow which allows customers to return it if they aren’t satisfied.
Allergy issues are common with fabric products in the home, especially linens and other things in contact with our skin frequently. Since I know how important it is for companies to be transparent regarding their materials and product information, I was disappointed to see that they do not explicitly describe the Cozydream pillow as hypoallergenic.
I personally couldn’t find anything listed in the materials that I thought might trigger an allergy issue, so I gave it a 9 out of 10. I also did not notice any issues that people with allergies had mentioned in the reviews.
Some so-called “issues” with a product can be chalked up to customer preferences or personal experiences rather than the product itself. Since the Cozydream pillow has almost entirely positive reviews, it would seem that several of the negative ones are due to personal preference.
While some thought the pillow was too supportive, others felt that it lacked support entirely. Some described it as being overly fluffy whereas others said that it went flat after one night. For this reason, I gave it 9.3 out of 10 for reviews overall.
Lastly, for price, I gave the Cozydream pillow an 8.8 out of 10. While I definitely don’t feel that it is an expensive pillow, there are more affordable ones available. Since it is only available online, some consumers might not feel comfortable spending a relatively larger amount of money on a product that they cannot see and feel themselves.
Overall, however, I do feel that the pillow is priced reasonably.
Good For People With Allergies
Again, while it is not explicitly stated whether or not the Cozydream pillow is hypoallergenic, it seems that all of the materials are allergy-friendly.
So many people struggle with finding bed linens or pillows that are comfortable, reasonably priced, and that won’t trigger their allergies or asthma. I like that this pillow is made with a 100% cotton exterior and a polyester microfiber filling to keep everyone safe and comfortable.
Nobody likes washing their pillow, but it is something that needs to be done. Some pillows require special hand-cleaning or need to be taken to a professional service, which consumes time and money.
The Cozydream pillow can be tossed in the washer for easy cleanup and maintenance. You can also avoid a lumpy pillow by washing as infrequently as possible, using a gentle cycle, and not drying on high heat.
Affordable Price Point
Although it is definitely not a bargain pillow by any means, the Cozydream pillow is still a great value in my opinion. Specially designed memory foam support pillows can run upwards of $100, and in some cases even more!
The fact that the manufacturer has used price-conscious materials like cotton and polyester while still preserving the integrity of its product is what makes it such a great overall value.
Soft Cotton Exterior
Breathability can be a huge issue with pillows. Everyone hates tossing and tossing and turning all night long while trying to find a comfortable position, and having to constantly flip and fluff your pillow just adds to the frustration. A no-nonsense cotton exterior will keep you feeling cool and clean so you can rest easily.
Medium-Support Polyester Fiber Fill
It’s tricky to please everyone, but the Cozydream pillow does a pretty fantastic job. As evidenced by its many stellar reviews, people are thrilled with the moderate support that the pillow provides.
While certainly not an orthopedic pillow or one designed for special support needs, the medium support provided by the light and fluffy polyester microfiber fill is more than enough for most people.
Not a Down Alternative Pillow
The true definition of “down alternative” is not well established, and technically any pillow filled with something other than goose down could be considered a down alternative. That being said, this pillow (unlike some competitors) is not advertised as a down alternative pillow.
Depending on your pillow preferences, this could be a drawback. Some swear by the feeling that a down pillow provides, so something lacking this could be a negative factor.
Some people strongly prefer thinner pillows, while some cannot do without sturdy neck support. As we’ve mentioned over and over, you can’t please everyone.
The Cozydream pillow is definitely a medium-support option, but some felt that even this was too supportive for them. However, there were also reviews stating that the pillow flattens out quickly and is not at all supportive enough (more on that below), so your mileage may vary.
Not Very Firm
This pillow is described by many as “light and fluffy”. Those who prefer a much firmer or denser pillow may be disappointed.
Raises Head and Neck Up High
Due to the overall “fluffiness” of the Cozydream pillow, lots of reviewers found that it raised their head and neck to an almost vertical angle. This is certainly not a comfortable way to sleep, however I suspect that some adjusting of the pillow may have solved this issue.
Gets Flat Quickly
Being a microfiber-filled pillow rather than one with memory foam, it does not hold its shape well on its own. The microfiber fill is specifically designed to be less dense and lumpy than traditional pillow fill, resulting in a much lighter and fuller-feeling pillow.
That being said, the airiness resulting in a less dense filling means that the pillow will flatten out with the weight of a person’s head. Some prefer this, while others are looking for a pillow that can hold its own.
All in all, reviewers raved about the Cozydream pillow. Despite being a bit pricier than some of its competing options, most people felt that it was still a pretty good value. The company’s 30-day trial guarantee is also a big plus.
As we’ve seen in the previous sections, the more negative reviews mostly indicated that the pillow was too supportive or not supportive enough. In a way, these almost cancel each other out and it can be inferred that it’s a pretty good middle-of-the-road option for most people.
One thing that a lot of people mentioned was the importance of letting the pillow fluff up after removing it from the vacuum-sealed packaging. The company recommends allowing a full 24 hours after opening before you begin using the pillow.
In conclusion, the Cozydream pillow gets my endorsement as a great, hotel-quality pillow for your home. I feel that it is priced very well and is a great option for those that don’t have overly specific neck support needs.
It is certainly a crowd pleaser, and its thousands of positive review around the internet speak for themselves. I also love that the company offers a risk-free one month trial to ensure that you really love your new pillow! Overall, I don’t think you’ll go wrong buying a Cozydream hotel-quality pillow.
