When choosing a pillow, the following scores for each test are very important, as significant change in these areas can turn a comfortable night's sleep into an unbearable one.

  • Comfort and support from a feather, wool, foam, latex or polyester pillow immediately after opening and using it.
  • How the pillow changes after heightened simulated use (the higher the score, the closer it'll feel to how it did out of the box after substantial use).
  • The deformation that happens when you lay your head on the pillow.
  • Whether folding the pillow results in deformation.
