Every time I mention that I have a latex pillow on my bed to a friend I get a very strange look.
But the Dunlopillo super comfort latex is so comfortable!
It’s got quite a strange bounce to it that makes it totally unique, softer, and more responsive than memory foam while being much more supportive than a hollow fibre or a feather pillow.
It’s definitely on the pricey side but when you feel it you know it’s going to last, it has a 5-year guarantee but I can see it lasting far longer than that. It just doesn’t feel like it’ll ever go flat!
So while a regular pillow should last 1-3 years I reckon you could get a decade out of this pillow and still be completely comfortable. Excellent value.
Latex is also a completely natural pillow, it’s made from the sap of a rubber tree which then goes through a chemical-free treatment leaving you with a firm bouncy pillow.
It’s also completely hypoallergenic!
Great for side sleepers and back sleepers but might be a little tall for front sleepers.
Overall, If you struggle to find a good comfortable pillow then this is definitely the pillow for you. If you want more pillow recommendations then check out this article.
The Dunlopillo Super comfort latex pillow is a luxurious full block Dunlopillo Talalay latex pillow giving comfort and instant pressure relief to your head and neck.
This Dunlopillo pillow is firmer than the Serenity deluxe and offers medium-firm support. This Dunlopillo latex pillow is covered in a luxury removable knitted cover, which makes the pillow easy to clean.
THE DUNLOPILLO SUPER COMFORT PILLOW
- 5-Year Guarantee
- Fast Bounceback
It’s no surprise that the inner is made of, you guessed it, latex!
At first, it might sound like a strange material to make a pillow from.
Before the latex is set as a “solid” plastic, it is foamed. Loads of tiny bubbles are frothed into the un-set latex. When it then forms into a “set” plastic, the bubbles are baked in; giving it a spongey, springy, property. It’s then a latex foam.
Like memory foam, this breathable Dunlopillo latex is very reactive to pressure. This allows it to support you by moulding and contouring to your body.
Unlike memory foam, latex pillows have an instant bounce back. When you are not lying on them, they jump back into their original shape very quickly. Whereas memory foam usually has to think about it for a while.
That’s right, this pillow needs no plumping.
Latex also has fantastic heat dissipation and breathable properties.
The cover material is made of a lovely 100% soft cotton. It has a striped texture giving it a sophisticated and up-market feel. You’re certainly left with no doubt that it is good quality.
With a zipper on the side, the cotton cover is easy to remove and wash to keep your bedding clean and fresh. While the cover is removable, I recommend still popping it into a pillowcase as a bonus pillow protector.
WHO IS THIS PILLOW FOR?
People Needing Support
The support this pillow provides is similar to memory foam yet it still has much more give similar to a hollow fiber of down pillow. It does an excellent job of relieving pressure on joints.
Do you have neck pain, need a supportive pillow, but don’t like memory foam? Then this is the perfect pillow for you.
Latex is naturally dust mite and allergy resistant. It is also both antibacterial and anti-fungal.
Allergy sufferers can breathe a sigh of relief. If you are sensitive to allergens, then this is the right pillow for you.
Unless you are allergic to latex itself. That said, your skin will never come into direct contact with the latex. It comes with a washable cover which is made of 100% soft cotton.
Does The Pillow Smell Funny?
When you first remove the pillow from its packaging, it does have a slight balloon smell. That’s the latex.
All it takes is leaving the pillow to rest and air for at least 4 hours before using it. The gentle balloon whiff will fade and won’t return.
Can The Cover Be Removed?
Yes. There is a neat little zipper on the pillowcase so it can be removed and machine washed.
How Does It Feel Against The Ears?
Because the pillow is soft, with a nice bounce to it, it is very easy on the ears. No unwanted friction, bending, or pressing.
What Size Is The Pillow?
A really strange thing about this pillow is when you look up its dimensions, it is advertised as 68cm x 40cm. I’ve never found the depth anywhere online.
“2D pillows! Get yer 2D pillows here! Thin and crispy just how you like em!”
Well, not to worry, I took a ruler to it and measured for you.
It is L68cm x W40cm x D16cm.
How Does Latex Compare To Memory Foam?
While both latex and memory foam are very supportive pillow filling options, there are a number of important differences.
- Latex is a natural product, whereas memory foam is 100% man-made.
- Latex is soft to the touch and bounces back into shape quickly. Memory foam is typically much denser and takes longer to return to its original shape.
- Both latex and memory foam return to their original shape and don’t require any plumping, unlike feather pillows and down pillows.
- Both latex and memory foam are more durable than feather and down pillows. Although latex can typically last longer than memory foam.
- Latex, like memory foam, does mould to the contours of your body and provide excellent support. Latex feels much softer than memory foam. So it is an excellent choice if you like the support of memory foam but don’t want that initial firmness.
- Latex has better heat and moisture dissipation properties than memory foam. So if you’re a “hot sleeper”, the breathability and coolness of latex could be just what you’re needing.
I am darn impressed with the Dunlopillo Super Comfort Latex Pillow. As the name hints, it’s super comfortable.
I’ve always loved the support of memory foam pillows, but the slower bounce back leaves something to be desired. Enter latex pillows. It has the fantastic, pressure relieving, support of memory foam, with a springy lively bounceback.
It’s a real joy to roll over and have the pillow shape just follow and support my head.
It is a medium-firm pillow with excellent breathability. A really great pillow for people who want memoryfoam-type support, but not memory foam.
