Nest Bedding pillows are made by the same family-owned, California-based company that makes the popular Nest Mattress collection. The company is famous for manufacturing natural products using their own proprietary blend that mimics the feel of a down and feather pillow.

After extensive testing, our favorite aspect of the Nest Bedding pillow collection is that the pillows provide great head/neck support and improve breathing. Our least favorite thing about these pillows is that there are limited firmness options.

What type of sleeper should buy a pillow from the Nest Bedding collection?

We ran Nest Bedding pillows through extensive testing and sought feedback from real customers, determining that they are best for back sleepers. Side sleepers also rated the pillow highly, while stomach sleepers gave these pillows a lower rating. If you’re a stomach sleeper you may want to look elsewhere for your pillow needs.

You should buy Nest Bedding pillows if:

  • You are a back or side sleeper
  • You want an adjustable-loft pillow
  • You have neck pain
  • Pressure relief is important to you

Features of Nest Bedding pillows

Nest Bedding pillows are manufactured out of shredded memory foam and are designed to provide you with pressure relief and contouring abilities. The interior is made out of Oeko-Tex certified latex for an all-natural, fire retardent chemical-free cooling effect.

In addition to their ergonomic properties, Nest Bedding pillows are also made to be molded, giving you the ability to scrunch it up to the perfect shape for you.

We didn’t like how difficult the pillows were to clean. There are also limited firmness options available, so if you’re particular about how soft your pillows are you may want to shop elsewhere.

Firmness

We rate Nest Bedding pillows as being at a medium-firm level of firmness. They will provide you with lots of support but with a gentle give. You won’t sink in too much but it also won’t feel like sleeping on a rock.

Medium-firm pillows are great for side sleepers and back sleepers who need extra neck support. If you sleep on your stomach you will most likely think that this pillow is a bit too firm for your preferences, unless you know for a fact that you prefer a firmer feel.

Bottom line: if you like to “sink in” to your pillow, you’ll definitely want to look for something softer. But if the idea of a “soft but firm” pillow appeals to you, Nest Bedding is the perfect choice.

Durability and Construction

Nest Bedding offers a few different models manufactured out of either shredded foam, shredded latex, or memory foam. This brand currently offers five different pillows, with each giving you the ability to adjust the loft and add or remove fill.

The different pillows that the company offers are made out of the following materials:

  • The Cool Pillow is made out of shredded gel memory foam with a cover made out of phase-changing material.
  • The Easy Breather is made out of shredded memory foam and the cover is constructed from Tencel Iyocell.
  • If you want to avoid artificial materials, the Easy Breather Natural features shredded latex construction with a natural cotton cover.
  • The Easy Breather Side Sleeper is made out of the same materials as the standard Easy Breather pillow, but with an angular shape that is designed for people who sleep on their side.
  • Finally, the Easy Breather Contour Pillow is made out of multiple pieces of memory foam with two different heights on either side. This unique construction is intended to line up with the curvature of your neck. It also had a chamber in the middle to support your head when sleeping on your back and raised sides for those times when you want to sleep on your side.

What sizes are available?

Nest Bedding makes their pillows in a few different standard sizes:

  • Standard 24″ x 16″
  • Queen 27″ x 16″
  • King 32″ x 16″

Each pillow also features an adjustable loft and the ability to add or remove filling, which can alter the dimensions of your pillow.

Pricing

These pillows are in the “premium” category, which means that they have high-end construction and are made out of the best materials – similar to other brands like Luxe, Pluto, Infinity, and Mediflow. As you can expect, that leads to a hefty price tag.

How much do Nest Bedding pillows cost?
