REVIEW – Most of us spend 7 or more hours a night sleeping so it’s obvious that a pillow is an important “tool” that can positively or negatively affect our sleep. When it comes to pillows, I’m incredibly picky. I’ve reviewed quite a few pillows over the years only to stow them in the closet after the review is done so I can go back to my previous favorite pillow. Let’s find out if the Honeydew Sleep Scrumptious Side Sleeper Pillow shares the same fate or has it become my new favorite?

What is it?

The Honeydew Sleep Scrumptious Side Sleeper Pillow is exactly what it sounds like it is. It’s a pillow that has been designed for people who sleep on their sides. Like me!

What’s in the box?

  • Vacuum packed Honeydew Scrumptious side sleeper pillow
  • Pillow case (optional purchase)

Design and features

I’ve reviewed several pillows over the years and wasn’t surprised when the Honeydew Sleep Scrumptious Side Sleeper Pillow arrived in such a small box. That’s because the pillow was vacuum packed into a much smaller tube shape. The included instructions provided info for “inflating” the pillow to its full size. Basically, you carefully cut open the plastic packaging and the pillow will automatically expand to its full size after a few seconds. You can then put it in the dryer if you feel it’s not fluffy enough. I didn’t feel the need to do that for mine.

Honeydew Sleep Scrumptious Side Sleeper Pillow

As you can see, the Honeydew Sleep Scrumptious Side Sleeper Pillow has a unique shape that reminds me a little bit of a bowtie. The dimensions are 27.5″ x 15″ and the idea is that it will better support your neck and shoulders and that you can hug the edges of the pillow while you’re sleeping on your side.

The exterior of the pillow has a quilted design while…

… the interior is filled with a special blend of super soft fibers and 100% CertiPUR-US certified copper-infused foam that is made without formaldehyde or heavy metals. What’s up with the copper? It actually helps you stay cool while sleeping and it’s naturally antimicrobial.

Note that the pillow is NOT machine washable other than the zippered cover and the pillow case.

Due to the shape of the Honeydew Sleep Scrumptious Side Sleeper Pillow, it’s nice that Honeydew also offers pillow cases that conform to the shape of this pillow. These pillow cases are available in 3 different colors. I was sent the white version.

They sent me two Honeydew Sleep Scrumptious Side Sleeper Pillows and two of their pillow cases that perfectly fit the side sleeper pillows as well as my queen-sized bed.

My first night sleeping with the pillow lasted a while 5 minutes before I got up and switched back to my other pillow. I found the height/thickness of the pillow to be too extreme for me. The next day, I removed enough of the pillow’s filler material to fill a gallon-sized Ziploc bag. That night I lasted a little longer sleeping with the Honeydew but again, I ended up switching it out with my previous pillow within an hour or so.

The next day, I removed yet another gallon-sized bag of the pillow’s stuffing and I’m happy to report that I slept the entire night with the Honeydew Sleep Scrumptious Side Sleeper Pillow. I had no issues with the pillow becoming flat or lumpy during the night. I also didn’t feel hot during the night.

What I like

  • 60 day free trial with free shipping both ways!
  • Fill amount can be customized

What I’d change

  • Allow the whole pillow to be machine washable

Final thoughts

After customizing the pillow, I have been able to enjoy many good nights of sleep with it. It’s still early in my usage of the pillow, so I won’t say it’s my favorite – yet. But it seems to be heading that way. The Honeydew Sleep Scrumptious Side Sleeper Pillows are well made, comfortable, and customizable. Add in the fact that they give you 60 days to decide if it’s right for you with free shipping both ways, I think this is a pillow that side sleepers like myself should try!

Update 6/30/21

It’s been a few weeks since I posted the review and although I liked the pillow after using it for a short time, I’ve really come to love it after a couple of more weeks. I’ve always preferred a one-piece foam pillow because the pillows with shredded stuffing always seemed to get lumpy. Not so with the Honeydew. I couldn’t be happier with it!

Price: $99.00 for the side sleeper pillow, $29.95 for the pillow case
Where to buy: Honeydew and Amazon

    Copper is a heavy metal. I worked in the copper industry for decades.

  3. We seem to have the same requirements in pillows. When you pick a new one I buy one; and it has been working out. I am still using your last pillow, the U2; it is the best so far. This pillow looks interesting but $129 is a little high for me. Looking forward to see how it works out for you.

    1. John, once I removed 2 bags of filler, it’s been a comfortable pillow. At this point, I don’t think I’m going back to the U2. But give me another week or two and I’ll report back.

  4. OK, you knew that I would have to follow your lead. It took about five nights to find the correct amount of filling for me. It is also my favorite pillow. I gauge the pillows by how many times I wake up, and with this one it is only a couple of times. I don’t see how a pillow can get any better. Also I like that it is from a real company. I couldn’t find a U2 pillow company when looking for a spare pillow cover.

  5. I’m on a search for a better pillow and while looking into this honeydew pillow found your review. My current Layala mattress co. pillow was a $100 purchase about a year and a half ago… the fill has given out and just doesn’t support my neck. I’ve got horrible migraines, so a bad pillow= headache in the morning. Terrible way to wake up! I think I’m going to give this one a try.

  6. How is the pillow doing now? How long have you been using it? Did it have any breakdown or is it the same as when you got it to the right fit for you?

    1. Vanessa, I’m still using this pillow and it’s still my favorite. I’ve tried using a different one just to see if I’m missing out on even more comfort, but I continue to go back to this pillow. I’m not noticing any breakdown of the foam.
