LANGRIA Cervical Contour Memory Foam Bed Pillow: QUICK OVERVIEW
What We Like
What We Don't Like
Sufferers from neck and spine injuries often have a hard time finding the perfect pillow to help alleviate their problems while they sleep. Normal down-filled pillows are out of the question because of their lumpy, awkward shape, but memory foam ones, which are supposed to be the healthier alternative, end up being just as bad a lot of the time since laying your head on one feels no better than sleeping on a rock.
If the pain is all too real for you, it’s time to breathe a sigh of relief as Langria has made a pillow which combines the best of both worlds.
LANGRIA Cervical Contour Memory Foam Bed Pillow Review
From jewelry cabinets and bathroom shelves to high-quality pillows, Langria strives to couple the functionality of its products with a sense of obligation towards the environment. That’s an approach epitomized in this pillow as well – soft and comfortable for people to enjoy sleeping on, but also made from choice materials which will harm neither them nor the environment.
Who is this product for?
Langria’s pillow is a great choice not only for people with problems of a medical nature, but for anyone who wants a soft supportive surface for their head and neck to rest on regardless of sleeping position preferences or (a lack of) tossing and turning at night.
Accessories for this pillow are on the sparse side, but as the main focus are the comfort and overall properties of the pillow itself, we won’t be counting this against Langria. Basically, you get the memory foam pillow and its machine-washable, mite-resistant knitted cover.
Overview of features
As hinted at above, one of this pillow’s greatest strengths is the balanced nature of its memory foam. Don’t assume that just because the pillow looks a little thin your neck muscle won’t get a much-deserved break when sleeping on it. One could say that it’s all in the foam – willing to conform to a certain degree and not too hard even once it starts refusing to budge any further, it never makes you feel like you’ve reached a rocky bottom while reminding you that it’s got your back, or your neck in this case.
Aside from its above-average physical properties, the pillow also has an exemplary chemical composition, so much so that it’s been given the green light by CertiPUR-US, meaning that no BPD plastics, lead, mercury or any other harmful chemical compounds were used when creating it, making this pillow as environment-friendly as it is comfortable.
The quality of your sleep is further enhanced by both the pillow and its cover’s breathability. The cover is especially interesting as it allows sweat to evaporate quickly and not seep into the memory foam. The heat your head and neck give off during the night is absorbed and then evenly expelled throughout the pillow’s surface, ensuring a colder sleeping surface that makes your trip to the land of nod all the quicker.
While there are not that many apparent flaws to be pointed out about this pillow, especially given its affordability, there’s something to be said about the way in which it is packaged. In order to save space, the manufacturer folds the pillow into three and packs it tightly. Once you open the package, you’re supposed to let it sit for a day so it can regain its contours. Sadly, sometimes this doesn’t happen… at all. This leaves you with an unusable mess of a pillow that’s almost flat in the middle and no other choice than to ask for a replacement. It’s a rare occurrence, but it does happen.
How to use the pillow
A great thing about this pillow’s design is that it supports any kind of sleeping style you’re used to. Like sleeping on your back? Turn the smaller 3.5-inch loft towards the bottom so that it supports your neck while the middle dip cradles the back of your head. Prefer sleeping on the side? Flip the pillow 180 degrees so the bigger 4.5-inch loft comes smoothly under the side of your neck to keep it in a straight and comfortable position.
Provided you’re not too reluctant to spend a bit of extra cash on your pillow to be sure that it arrives at your doorstep as intended, there’s always the Sleep Innovations Memory Foam Contour Pillow. People who tend to sweat a lot at night may need the extra heat dissipation properties of gel to keep them cool, in which case Tampor’s memory foam pillow will prove to be a great alternative.
Langria’s is a well-balanced, cost-effective and all-around good pillow suitable for the vast majority of people who prefer their pillows to have a certain degree of flexibility. It’s a great replacement for an older memory foam pillow that’s run its course but also a recommended choice for someone who’s about to make the switch from old-fashioned lumpiness to contoured bliss.
