The Eve pillow comes to you straight from one of the best memory mattress makers in the world. They’re clearly setting their sights on the title of best pillow manufacturer too.
For a quick overview, you just need to know it’s suitable for every type of sleeper and comes in at a medium-firm rating. But let’s get into the details or:
WHY MEMORY FOAM
Memory foam was brought to us by some very clever people over at NASA while they were trying to develop a seat material to withstand the pressures of take off. They eventually made the technology open to everyone and from there memory foam mattresses were developed and loved for their supreme comfort and support. But we’re here to talk about pillows!
Memory foam pillows offer up great support along the neck and shoulders helping keep your spine aligned and neck free from aches. So you can wake up refreshed and the Eve is no exception.
Memory foam itself is a Viscoelastic material which basically means it gets softer when body heat is applied. So your body heat causes it to soften and mould around your head, evenly distributing your weight, for maximum support and comfort along the natural curves and lines of your body.
The optimum support helps to relieve pressure points, and helps to soothe sore and arthritic joints.
It then returns to its original shape once you’re not lying on it; putting the memory into memory foam.
MEMORY FOAM KEY BENEFITS
1. Provides Pressure Relief
The unique moulding and contouring effect which memory foam has, when exposed to your body heat and weight, supports your body exactly fitting your own personal shape.
2. Encourages spinal Alignment
The fantastic support which memory foam provides promotes healthy natural spinal alignment. It becomes easier to find a comfortable position, prevents tossing and turning in the night, and helps you to get a good night’s sleep and wake up feeling refreshed. Ideal for people suffering from neck pain.
3. Dampens Motion
This aspect particularly affects memory foam mattresses but is also very present in memory foam pillows too. As memory foam dampens movement and vibrations across it, you will be shaken and disturbed far less in your sleep. You won’t disturb your partner when you have to get up in the middle of the night.
Memory foam lends itself naturally toward being hypoallergenic. Which is a real plus for allergy sufferers. Memory foam does not tend to attract or accumulate allergens such as pollen, dust mites, and mold
5. Ideal for all sleeping positions
Thanks to the moulding and contouring nature of memory foam, you will feel comfy with any sleeping style. Side sleepers and back sleepers alike will experience the same benefits.
THE EVE PILLOW
Now that we know what memory foam is, what’s the pillow like?
Well the eve pillow comes vacuum-packed and in a little box so it’s best to leave it to air and “inflate” before you give it a try. This gets rid of any smell that might be there (totally normal for any new memory foam) and get’s it just right for sleeping on.
It’s perfectly suitable for any type of sleeper back, front or side. I’d say the feel of it is definitely a medium-firm feel with it feeling a little firmer than the Tempur memory foam pillows if any of you have tried that for a comparison.
MATERIALS & CONSTRUCTION
The core of the memory foam inner is made from a softer, lower density, foam. That soft foam is then surrounded by a much denser foam.
This builds to a firm supportive feel, without the pillow swallowing you up, yet the middle still has some give in it. It cannot all compact in the middle so it stays soft through the night.
Along with the two layers of memory foam, the entire pillow inner is studded with small air holes. These holes promote airflow underneath your head, maximising breathability, and allowing excess heat and moisture to dissipate. You will never have to turn your pillow over again to get the cool side of the pillow feeling.
The soft pillow cover is made of 100% stretchy polyester. It is made in a luxurious Jersey knit giving a lovely soft and smooth feel against the skin.
Allergy sufferers can be relieved to know that this pillowcase is hypoallergenic. So it shouldn’t be the cause of any allergic reactions. Unlike what some people might experience with cotton covers.
The pillow covering is removable and machine washable making it nice and easy to keep ultrafresh if anything soaks through your pillow case. Make sure you run your washing machine at 40°C.
Measuring up at about 42cm x 66cm it’ll fit perfectly into a standard pillowcase or Eve have their own pillow set on their website for those interested. All the eve sheets are pretty cool actually they use a percale weave which keeps the material tighter and so keeps the sheets feeling soft and fresh while promoting breathability.
Memory foam is a space-age material and durability is key in its design. On top of that, the polyester cover is extremely durable against wear and tear.
That said, it will wear out eventually. Eve provides a 3 year warranty with the pillow. So that is their way of saying they are confident it will last over 3 years. Most synthetic pillows are expected to last 1 to 2 years.
WHAT SLEEPING POSITION IS THE EVE PILLOW FOR?
Simply put, this pillow is appropriate for all sleeping positions.
The extra pillow height, unless you have particularly broad shoulders, is excellent for side sleepers. At the same time, with the forming, compressive, nature of memory foam and this two-layer design; the eve memory foam pillow is also an excellent choice for back sleepers and front sleepers alike. This is a particular aspect which the eve sleep technicians paid particular attention to.
Both the memory foam inner and polyester cover have received the Oeko-Tex Class 1 certification.
Oeko-Tex is an independent fabric research and test institute with the mission of helping you make informed and responsible choices over your textile decisions.
This means that it has been independently scientifically tested, confirming that this pillow is safe for toddlers and people with sensitive skin.

You actually get a 30 day trial of the pillow so if you don’t like it you can just send it on back free for a full refund! But if you do like it, and I think you will, you’ve got a rest easy 3-year guarantee to keep you slumbering soundly all night long.

All in all, I’d say the eve pillow is fantastic! The memory foam offers great support, the microfibre pillow case is breathable avoiding overheating and it’s got a trial period and a 3-year guarantee. Lovely!
This pillow is made of very high quality materials. It offers a wonderful level of support, although some might find it to be particularly firm. It might take some getting used to.
I thoroughly recommend combining your memory foam pillow with a memory foam mattress topper for a budget-friendly comfort boost to any mattress.
Personally, I far prefer my pillow to be memory foam over something like a goose feather pillow because it never needs to be plumped up and won’t become a big dense mass. It is a really good pillow for ensuring a good night’s sleep particularly if you suffer from neck pain.
