Twilla Adjustable Pillow
What’s to love: A pillow that can be adjusted for the sleeper’s comfort by adding or removing soft foam-filled pods.
What does it do: Whether the user is a side sleeper, needs extra neck support or additional lift, this pillow uses a patented pod system to build a pillow to suit their needs. Basically, the user adds or removes miniature pillows — filled with a cooling gel foam — where they want more support. The outer pillow is made with Tencel fabric. The extra pods are inserted into a zippered opening between two soft layers of padding. The pillows are washing machine safe in cold water and can be tumbled dry on low. A 19-by-29-inch queen size pillow comes with 10 adjustment pods and sells for $99. For more information visit twilla.com.
