About Sleepgram Pillow

Claiming to offer a superior sleeping experience, the Sleepgram is a microfiber pillow utilizing multiple firmness combinations to tailor to your preferences.

Stating that they felt traditional feather pillows were in need of a serious facelift, the creators of the Sleepgram say that they revised the plan for their product dozens of times before finding the perfect pillow.

What separates the Sleepgram from other pillows is the way you can use their combination of soft and firm microfiber pillows to find just the right firmness for you.

On the product’s website, we’re told that the Sleepgram pillow started with a series of sleepless nights faced by a company co-founder’s wife.

After trying out several different mattresses, they discovered that the key to a better night’s sleep actually lied in the pillows the couple was using. After sharing their story with another eventual co-founder, the initial idea for Sleepgram took root.

On the about us page of the website, we’re told that Sleepgram was born with the mission to make sleep, and pillow shopping, a happy experience.

Neither of the founding members appear to have a background in the sleep industry, with the website claiming that their prior experience was in software engineering and data analytics.

With all these things in mind, we wanted to know how well the Sleepgram pillow worked, so we tested the pillow for a month before writing our review.

Our Experience With the Sleepgram Pillow

As we mentioned above, the main aspect separating the Sleepgram from traditional feather pillows is the two different microfiber pillows. Basically, your pillow arrives in the mail with two inserts that fit into a 100% cotton cover.

One insert has a red tag on it and one has a blue tag. The insert with the red tag is of medium firmness while the blue insert is soft.

If you want a firm pillow, you put a red and blue pillow inside the cover. For medium firmness, you use one medium pillow. And, for a soft pillow, you use one of the soft pillows. Both of us are side sleepers.

For me, it was pretty fun to see the Sleepgram box arrive. It was heavier than I thought and that’s due to the fact that there were two pillows and four inserts in the box.

The directions tell you to throw the insert pillows into the dryer for a few minutes so they expand. I did that, and then my wife and I made two pillows with the red- and blue-tag pillows, creating a firm pillow.

The first few nights I used the pillow, my back hurt the next morning, something that’s pretty standard when you change pillows or mattresses. Your body has to get used to a spine alignment and weight distribution.

There was, no doubt, a big difference in support between my old pillow, which was two cotton pillows crammed into one pillowcase, and the Sleepgram that included two of their firm pillows.

The initial back pain wore off after about four days. I started to notice that I was sleeping better and not waking up as much as I normally do. Typically, I wake up at least three or four times a night but that number was cut in half during the weeks I tested the pillow.

I also noticed that there was a streak of three or four nights where I only woke up one time. Based on this, I believe that the Sleepgram pillow provided me a better night’s sleep.

Another thing to note is that, during the time I tested the pillow, there are only a couple of times I had to adjust the pillow after I woke up. It seemed to be more supportive than my old cotton pillows.

One of the things I noticed is that, when I put my head on the pillow, it gave until just about a third to halfway down and then held steady. My head didn’t sink all the way down like it does with my old pillows.

My wife, who also tried the pillows, had a slightly different experience. She said that the pillow compacted too much during the night and the ear on which she slept hurt in the morning.

Sleepgram Pricing & Return Policy

As of this writing, the Sleepgram pillow was available exclusively from the product’s main website online. It is available in two different sizes, standard/queen (18” x 26”) and king (18” x 33”), and each is available in four different quantities:

  • Single pillow: $64.99 ($74.99 for king)
  • Two-pack: $79.99 ($99.99 for king)
  • Four-pack: $149.99 ($189.99 for king)
  • Six-pack: $219.99 ($279.99 for king)

Shipping is based on the number of pillows you order, with standard shipping going for anywhere from $9.95 for a single pillow or a two-pack, to free for larger orders.

The checkout page informs us that each order comes with a 100-night return policy, not including any shipping & handling fees.

To initiate a return, you’ll need to reach out to customer service by phone at 877-257-5337 or via email at help@sleepgram.com. You’ll be required to pay return postage to get the product back to the manufacturer.

Sleepgram vs. Other Similar Pillow Designs

There are thousands of different pillows available both online and in-stores today. That said, are there any options out there that utilize a similar design to the Sleepgram pillow?

We found one pillow, the Morphiis, that’s similar to the Sleepgram in that you can insert multiple pillows into your pillowcase to adjust firmness. The Morphiis has six 100% cotton inserts. Its price tag, at the time of publishing, was $85 for a queen-size pillow and $95 for a king.

Whereas the Sleepgram can fit up to two of their insert pillows, the Morphiis utilizes up to six insert pillows. The advantage here is that Morphiis’ pillows can add a significant height difference for side sleepers with bigger shoulders.

We also came across single pillows that utilized various designs to provide firmness, like the WENERSI Premium White Goose down pillows or the Three Geese White Goose Feather bed pillow.

These pillows tend to be more affordable than Sleepgram, ranging from $24.99 to $39.99 and up when we checked during our research.

In terms of brand reception and feedback, several of these products featured hundreds of customer reviews on Amazon, many of which were five-stars. At the time of publishing, the Sleepgram had an average rating of four stars from 99 reviewers.

Common complaints included remarks about the pillow not being firm enough or too flat, as well as not being cool enough.

If you’re searching for the perfect pillow for your specific needs, consider the following:

  • What position do you normally sleep in? As we mentioned above, depending on whether you are back sleeper, a side sleeper, or a stomach sleeper, a pillow with a certain type of thickness and shape may be desired. For more information on how your position can affect the pillow you need, be sure to read through our guide to the Top Pillow Picks for Each Position.
  • Consider all of your options before deciding on one. Because there are so many different pillows out there, it’s important to slow down and do a bit of research beforehand. Compare several products by price and similar features, and read through what customers are saying about each of them. Just be sure to watch out for fake reviews.
  • Understand the return policy going into a purchase. Because pillows are such a personal item when it comes to preferences of style, filling, weight, etc, it can be difficult to nail down the one that’s right for you without trying it out for yourself first. For this reason alone, it’s important to read and understand the product’s return policy before entering in any credit card information.

The Bottom Line: Our Thoughts on Sleepgram

Based on everything that we’ve learned about the Sleepgram pillow and our own experience, we believe the pillow provides a solid night’s rest for most people who try it.

We believe that the Sleepgram improved our sleep, a fact that’s confirmed by the positive reviews the pillow gets on Amazon.

One of the most important factors in choosing a pillow, however, is budget and preference. On the budget side of things, we believe Sleepgram’s price is higher than many cotton- or down-based pillows. If money is a concern for you, then the Sleepgram may not be worth its relatively high price tag.

If sleeping preference is your deciding factor, then Sleepgram may be worth it because you’ll have 100 days to try it out. Experiment with the various options you have for calibrating firmness. Use the red and blue together, then do the blue by itself and the red by itself.

Editor's Note: Sleepgram Pillow was sent to us free of charge for review. This review is based on our honest opinion and impression of the pillow after sleeping on it for a number of nights. There is no material relationship between Sleepgram and HighYa. This article was revised on 9/12/18 by J.R. Duren

    Well rested.

    Only one night in yet, I slept good and woke up refreshed and ready to go. I didn't sit there and think about it; just got up. I hope it will last. The pillows are very comfortable out the gate.

    Best pillow I have ever slept on!

    I ordered four pillows as we have two condos. For the two nights that my husband and I slept in the pillows, we both had a great night’s sleep. We had both been suffering from falling asleep but waking up during the night and not able to get back to sleep. We did not have that problem with the Sleepgram Pillows! We are both looking forward to many great sleepful nights with these pillows!

    My Comfort Pillow

    My husband has fibromyalgia. It's been frustrating trying to find a supportive pillow that has the right amount of softness and fluffiness. We've tried several pillows in the past, but nothing worked until we bought Sleepgram. It's perfect for my husband's neck. We will order more today.

    Perfect hybrid pillow

    This is one of the first pillows I could sleep well on my back and on my side. It comes in a vacuum seal and blows up in front of your eyes. Their price point is good for the value you get.

    Incredible pillow!

    I received them yesterday morning and slept on them last! This incredible pillow gave us the best sleep of our lives. Seriously! We woke up with no back pain and stiff neck. The right thickness, the right amount of fluffiness, soft and warm. Sad to say we only ordered two, now we have ordered more and wait longer before our new pillows arrive. We're excited. This is the type of product you won't hesitate to recommend.

    Best sleep of my life

    I don't know what it is about these pillows, but I keep both inserts in and while they feel squishy, which would allude to them being "soft," they are actually medium firm when I lay on it. I use them every night!

    Additionally, I have a loveseat in my living room that is smaller than I am, so sleeping on it is really uncomfortable always, however, I wanted to see what would happen if I sleep on it with this pillow and I was able to sleep on that couch for a week with zero aches and pains and I attribute it to the support my neck gets with this pillow.

    My sister stayed over for a week on an air mattress using these pillows, and she's a fussy sleeper, and she had nothing but great things to say about these pillows. I can see how people may have issues if they are expecting something different, but for me, it's made a game-changing difference. A+.

    Love them!

    I just received them. I love the way I can choose, "soft," "medium," or "firm." Love them! Happy! I would not only recommend these pillows. I actually already shared the ad with a friend who has trouble sleeping.

    Best pillow yet!

    My header to this review says it all. I have literally nine pillows which I've bought over the last few years, with the most recent costing near $200. As soon as I laid my head down I knew I had finally found a winner. Soft as a cloud. I use one in soft mode with a medium on top, and arm on the soft one under the medium one into which I rest my head. They don't get hot and aren't stiff. The fact that you can adjust the fullness by adding or taking away inserts is pure genius. I threw away the box even though they offer 100 days no risk trial. I'm definitely keeping mine!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
