This pillow by Malouf is all about the high-quality materials. When Malouf set out to design an all latex foam pillow, they didn’t just use any foam. They made this pillow using all-natural Talalay Latex. This is a high-quality eco-friendly latex that is superior to other highly processed or manufactured latex materials. It is a natural choice that is minimally processed and can vary in different densities so Malouf can create that just right feel for their pillows.
Talalay Latex is hypoallergenic, mildew proof, and stays much cooler than other foams. Another benefit to purchasing a pillow made out of Talalay Latex is that it has a quick adaptive feel. Unlike memory foam which tends to heat up and is slow to adapt to your movements. Latex adjusts to your movement quickly which helps avoid any stuck or sinking feeling.
The cover used on this pillow is made to breath with a 100% cotton cover. Malouf made their cover removeable with a simple side zipper. This makes it possible for the cover to be completely machine washable.
Comfort & Support:
This is a zoned latex foam pillow by Malouf. Which means that there are specifically placed holes within this pillow in order to create zones with varying support throughout the pillow. This allows for proper spinal alignment and superior comfort. These holes are smaller around the edges of the pillow. The smaller holes allow for more support for your neck where you need it most.
The middle zone of the pillow is where you need a pillow to cradle and conform to the shape of your head. Which is why the holes are larger in this section in order to allow the pillow to contour to the shape of your head. Overall, we are impressed and enjoy the amount of support this pillow gives. If you prefer a softer or firmer pillow see the info on density in the next section.
Loft Size & Density:
The Malouf Talalay Latex Pillows have several different varieties for you to choose from. First you of course choose your size (Queen or King). Then you get to pick your loft size (Low or High), Then finally there is the density of your latex which will determine whether your pillow is Plush or Firm.
These choices allow for this pillow to get rather versatile and suit the preferences of many. If you are a stomach sleeper that prefers a dense pillow, then we would suggest getting the Low Firm option. While a side sleeper that likes a softer pillow, we would suggest getting the High Loft with a Plush feel.
Back sleepers could choose either loft depending on personal preference and your size.
