This product is meant to enhance good quality sleep by providing comfort and good support.

Our Snuggle-Pedic Ultra-Luxury Bamboo Shredded Memory Foam Pillow Review
I first encountered the Snuggle-Pedic Ultra-Luxury Bamboo Shredded Memory Foam Pillow a few months ago while on a sleepover at my friend’s house. My first impressions of the pillow were great, so I decided to order one for myself. For a few months now, I have used the pillow almost daily. This review will detail my experience with the product focusing on comfort, support, and overall value for money. Keep in mind that your experience may vary from mine due to numerous factors.
Regarding comfort, I must mention that I have chronic ear pain and a recurring neck problem. This means that a comfortable pillow is paramount to my sleep quality. Before purchasing the Snuggle-Pedic Ultra-Luxury Bamboo Shredded Memory Foam Pillow, I was using a latex pillow that, unfortunately, the manufacturer discontinued. Since then, I began searching for a pillow that could match the loftiness, puffiness, and comfort of the latex one I had. After using the Snuggle-Pedic for one night at my friend’s, I decided to order one.
When I first got the pillow, I was super excited about its overall quality feel. It has an amazing, super soft outer cover with a firm yet squishy shredded memory foam filling. I let it air out for an entire day to get it all puffed up. When I began using it, I instantly loved how my head sunk into the soft memory foam while my neck remained supported. Unlike other pillows I had tried, this one did not get all sweaty and hot. I figure this has something to do with the high breathability synonymous with bamboo viscose.
However, my initial impression soon changed after about a week when I noticed that the Snuggle-Pedic Ultra-Luxury Bamboo Shredded Memory Foam Pillow was no longer puffy. Instead, it had turned somewhat dense, causing my ears to hurt when I side-slept. I got the package that the pillow came in and went over the directions again to see whether I had missed anything, and indeed, I had. I placed the pillow in the dryer for a few minutes, and voila, it was all soft and puffy again.
My biggest problem with the comfort aspect of the pillows involves this weekly cycle with the dryer. I live in an apartment where we share a dryer on the ground floor, and it is super-inconvenient for me to make the trip from the fifth floor each week to get my pillow puffed up. While the pillow is quite comfortable, I feel like I will soon get bored with the weekly re-puffing cycle.
Besides comfort, support was the second most important attribute of a quality pillow, in my opinion. Over the few months that I have used the Snuggle-Pedic Ultra-Luxury Bamboo Shredded Memory Foam Pillow, I can say that it provides sufficient support to help me sleep better. Before I began using the pillow, I would often wake up with a stiff neck that affected my posture and walking for a few minutes after waking up.
With the Snuggle-Pedic Ultra-Luxury Bamboo Shredded Memory Foam Pillow, though, I no longer experience this pain since my neck is supported throughout the night. I also loved the little touch involving extra memory foam in the package. This is quite considerate of the manufacturer since it allows every customer to customize the pillow filling to their preference. In my case, I unzipped the outer cover and added some foam to make the pillow more supportive. Keep in mind that doing this increases the pillow’s width significantly.
As a habitual side sleeper, my biggest problem with pillows has been that they often become too flat too fast. Therefore, I was quite happy to have a pillow whose depth I could increase as I pleased. The manufacturer, Relief-Mart, is also more than willing to help customers adjust their pillows to suit their needs.
My single biggest misgiving related to support is having to make adjustments yourself. I feel like the company should have figured out a way to make pillows with varying firmness right off the box. I would rather choose the firmness I want when purchasing and having to add memory foam filling myself.
Value for Money (8.8/10)
Usually, high-quality pillows with excellent comfort and support are quite pricey. The Snuggle-Pedic Ultra-Luxury Bamboo Shredded Memory Foam Pillow is by no means cheap. However, for what it costs, I feel it is worth the money. To start with, the manufacturer provides excellent after-purchase service to ensure that every customer is satisfied. This involves sending extra covers (they sent me one) and providing extra memory foam.
Having been a perennial problematic sleeper, I was quite skeptical about the overall quality of the Snuggle-Pedic Ultra-Luxury Bamboo Shredded Memory Foam Pillow. When I began getting consistent sleep quality, I decided to try another pillow to ascertain that my improved sleep quality was indeed a result of the Snuggle-Pedic pillow. After using a different pillow for a night, I always go back to the Snuggle-Pedic. I can, therefore, confidently say that this product has been worth every penny.
After using the pillow for several months, I would not mind buying another should the need arise. I cannot give the product a perfect score in this category because of the constant puffing that the pillow requires to remain fluffy and supportive. I feel like the memory foam quality should be improved to justify the pillow’s relatively high price point.
Final Verdict 8.4
The Snuggle-Pedic Ultra-Luxury Bamboo Shredded Memory Foam Pillow is definitely a product I will be purchasing in the future, especially if the company can iron out the few qualms I had. I will gladly give it a perfect score. It still saddens me that I did not discover this pillow early enough. Perhaps I would have lesser sleep-related problems by now.
The best aspect of the pillow is undoubtedly its fantastic value for money. Still, it performs quite well on comfort and support. After using it for a few months now, I awarded the pillow an overall score of 8.4/10 and would gladly recommend it to anyone.
[FAQ’s] Consumer Questions & Answers
Where is this pillow manufactured?
The Snuggle-Pedic Ultra-Luxury Bamboo Shredded Memory Foam Pillow is manufactured in the USA. The manufacturer has a facility in Southern California in which all materials and components are brought for manufacture. This allows the company to produce superior pillows and offer significantly long warranties.
How should I fluff this pillow?
You have two options when it comes to fluffing the pillow. Under most circumstances, leaving the pillow to air will let it fluff up by itself. If this does not work for you, put it in the dryer for 10-20 minutes under high heat. Keep in mind that after removing it from the dryer, the pillow will deflate slightly as air escapes from the filling.
I am a habitual side sleeper. Will this pillow suit me?
Yes, the pillow will work for you. Due to its relatively deep filling, the Snuggle-Pedic is ideal for side sleepers. With the soft shredded foam filling, your ears will not be under undue pressure, resulting in reduced earache compared to firmer pillows.
How do you order extra memory foam, or do you get it with the initial purchase?
My pillow came with a plastic package containing extra memory foam. However, if you still require additional shredded foam, you can always contact the manufacturer. Besides providing extra foam, the company will also advise whether you need a different pillowcase type.
Does the pillow contain memory foam treated with flame retardants?
No, the Snuggle-Pedic uses foam that’s free of flame retardants and other harmful materials such as formaldehyde, mercury, lead, phthalates, and ozone-depleting elements.
