My husband gifted me with Coop’s Eden pillow at the beginning of 2021 to help alleviate my night sweats. As of today, I’ve been using this pillow for six months. Here’s my review.

What I LOVE: Coop makes a good pillow. According to their website, they produce brand new memory foam fill…that has been rigorously tested and certified by CertiPUR-US® to ensure safety and quality. When my pillow arrived, it was filled to the brim with said memory foam. The first night, I slept with the foam it came with. I like my pillows like I like my bed…soft, so this was too much. As per the directions, I removed the foam until it was to my liking. Hands down, this is the best pillow for sleeping. It is comfortable, and as the website says, the Eden pillow is best for stomach and back sleepers, of which I am the former. This pillow definitely feels different than the other ten dollar pillows I get from Target.

What is DISAPPOINTING: The Eden pillow doesn’t just come with regular memory foam. Coop uses some type of special gel to provide a more breathable sleep experience. The pillow does feel cool to the touch at first, but maybe I’m just too hot to handle or something. When I’m having an insomnia moment, I can feel the pillow losing its cooling effect. I’m not necessarily sweating (because I’ve gotten that under control), but the pillow doesn’t warm up, eventually feeling like all the other pillows—warm. A few people who gave the product three stars seemed to agree with me.

Overall: Coop makes a good pillow. If perimenopause or menopause has you losing sleep, the comfort of the Eden pillow may be useful. However, if you’re looking for something to keep you cool at night, this may not be the answer.

Buy an $80 Coop pillow.
