Sleeping Like a Baby!


Let me tell you something, since I have been sleeping on this pillow I have not woken up ONCE throughout the night due to being too hot or too uncomfortable. In fact, I can now fall asleep within 15 minutes of my head hitting the chilled fluffiness. It is wonderful! The side pillow works great for tummy sleepers too, though it has helped me sleep more on my side than my stomach, which is the healthier way to sleep anyways.

The Side Design

Overall this pillow is great for all types of sleeping styles, but you’ll especially love it if you sleep on your side.

HIBR Side Sleeper Specifications

Some people call this style “the kidney pillow” after its shape, but we like to think that The Side Pillow is like the kidney as it plays a vital role in maintaining a balanced body. This is our most versatile pillow and benefits the widest range of sleepers, most ideally the side sleeper.

The Side Pillow, like all HIBR pillows, has an optimal medium-firmness support level – balancing the cushion effect of memory foam with the stability required for a solid night’s sleep.

You have never felt a pillow this cool to the touch. We give new meaning to the phrase “the cool side of the pillow.” An added feature is that our pillows are also reversible. If you didn’t want a cool pillow one night, you could easily flip the pillow over and still receive the body regulating features – but eliminate the coolness.

All HIBR pillows come with a treated pillow cover that enhances the pillow’s body temperature regulating system.

The HIBR pillow is simply the most advanced pillow ever created. You owe it to your body to experience what sleeping on a HIBR pillow can do for your lifestyle.

The finest of dreams…


Very well made (in America). Excellent support and design features make this lofty, lovable Side Pillow the stuff of good dreams and wise purchases. Worth every cent. Undeniably the best pillow I’ve ever had the intelligence to have selected. Thanks to the crew of HIBR.



Remarkable Pillow!


This pillow is incredibly comfortable. I put my head down…and no head or neck adjustments needed! It’s perfect right out of the box. I sleep very well and no longer wake up with neck pain. I look forward to your mattress HIBR, but take your time developing it…you have have big shoes to fill.

    I’ve tried so many pillows from expensive, custom to department store, and then I found HIBR. I can’t recommend this pillow enough- the very first night, I slept all night. It is cool, comfortable, and very affordable. Thank you for changing my life!

    This is my serving time buying HIBR pillows and I’m a big fan. They provide excellent support and don’t seem to deteriorate with time at all. Highly recommend.

    Great pillow BUT like many others, the pillow is just too thin. The company needs to make the same pillow but with another 2-3 inches of height. Right now it’s made for probably an 11 year old frame not an adult. Feels cool to the touch which is nice, but if your head is below your body when you sleep that defeats any positive a pillow brings

    I asked my wife for this for my birthday and it delivers. I run hot and only sleep with a sheet in the dead of winter. The cool side of this pillow is incredible. It is a must have for hot sleepers.

    I think I first learned about this pillow when it was reviewed on Lifehacker. I purchased it on Amazon.

    In general, I think this is a pretty good pillow but definitely not worth its price.

    Cooling: I can detect a slight cooling difference. But it isn’t significant enough to make any difference for over-heaters like me.

    Size (length): Quite small. I don’t particularly mind that but if you move around a lot, you might.

    Size (thickness): This is the main reason why I can’t recommend this pillow. The pillow is simply way too thin even for a modest head (I’m 5’6″ and weight 135 lbs). It’s really too bad, because it defeats the point of having a side pillow — that is, keeping proper, comfortable spinal alignment. It is thin enough that your head dips down significantly. I’m baffled by why they made it so thin. Putting a pillow underneath it isn’t very comfortable because you have to position it in a way that doesn’t negate the whole shoulder-hole benefit of the pillow.

    Bottom line: This is a pretty comfortable pillow and there is a slight cooling sensation. But it’s way too thin — it seems to me it should be *at least* twice as thick to be useful. So I find it to be unusable and worth about half the advertised price.

    This pillow was recommended by a friend who recently had neck surgery. Her surgeon recommended it to her. I’ve tried other memory foam pillows but they all felt too thick and stiff! The design of this pillow is awesome! It also stays cool! My husband and I are sold! Now my son wants one! We both sleep on side and back! My 80 yr old mother also purchased the side pillow and she also loves it. She wants one for her bed and one for her couch!

    I was surprised at how comfortable my side sleeper pillow is. I’ve tried a few different types, but so many of them are too thick and I wake up with neck pain. This is the best ever…the shape is perfect, and so is the thickness. It is firm and doesn’t lose it’s shape. I love it!

    We purchased two of these pillows after spending hundreds of dollars on special mattress covers, trying to achieve a better nights’ sleep. Within a couple days we could tell a marked difference in the feeling we had in the mornings upon waking – more refreshed, better rested! Love the way they cradle your head and align your body. A fantastic purchase, worth every penny!

    My husband and I bought this bed almost 2 weeks ago. We had a traditional tempuredic before and were due for a new mattress. I tend to run VERY hot during the night and was excited about the cooling layer. I can honestly tell you I have not woken up soaking wet yet with this new mattress!!! Life changing for sure!!

    I ordered our pillows rather blindly after a friend on Facebook ordered one for himself after trying another competitor. After a few years with memory foam pillows, returning to traditional pillows was not an option. These HIBR pillows have been working great: we both get a good night’s sleep without any neck pain. I wish the pillows were just an inch higher/thicker and slightly wider to fit into our standard pillowcases. But we’re sleeping soundly, and that’s why we bought these pillows. Mission accomplished!

    We recently purchased our second pillow from HIBR. My wife uses the silhouette and I use the side pillow. Both of us agree they are the best pillows we’ve ever purchased. I’ll be a customer for years to come!

    While the pillow was too thick for me and the sewing on the inside pillow had problems, HIBR’s customer service and responsiveness in getting me a refund and a return label was so exemplary that I will order from HIBR again!

    Used the pillow first at my daughters home and fell in love. Nothing but good to say, I’m still amazed at how such a small condensed pillow can be so incredibly comfortable. I’ve tried probably hundreds of pillows in my life and never found one like the HIBR. With neck and back problems, this pillow is a must. My husband, who was the true sceptic and who said “Fine! let me try the thing!” hasn’t given it back yet – I think it’s a hit!

    I bought one of these pillows a few months back and my girlfriend kept stealing it from me. I bought another one to give to her for her birthday. She loves it. Great pillow

    While this is the best designed, most comfortable pillow I’ve found, I haven’t found much use for the “warm” side, and the cooling effect fades faster than I’d like (although changing head position makes this manageable). It does bounce back pretty fast in terms of coldness and never gets uncomfortably hot. The shape of the pillow and the feel of the foam are both excellent. Overall a game-changing product that has improved my quality of sleep from the first night I tried it. If you make a Side Sleeper with two cold sides I’ll make another. Call it a California Side 😉

    Love love love the side sleeper HIBR pillow. I originally bought mine back in December and my boyfriend is always stealing mine, so I got him one for his birthday. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is that there are no pillow case covers available for the HIBR pillow. I’m going to try to alter the current pillow case I have on the pillow, but with that very specific shape, it would be great if HIBR had that for sale.

    When I first used this pillow, I thought my prayers were answered. I have chronic neck problems, to the point of using a physical therapist. The first two nights on this pillow gave me a pain free awakening. Don’t know why it reversed. I am now back to tossing and turning and waking with severe headaches. I’m finally considering using no pillow at all. Not the pillow’s fault; just hoped it would give me some relief.

    This side sleeper pillow is comfortable but it does not seem to keep my head or neck cool though.

    My wife got me the Silhouette pillow. I loved it. She got one herself a few weeks later.

    There are good products available in many places. “Above and beyond” customer service, however, is quite a rarity. Kudos. Keep up the excellent work. I will absolutely be recommending you.

    I’ve been an owner of the Simple pillow for a little over a year. Every time I had ‘friendly company’ spend the night it’d get hijacked. That how great it is. So decided to try the side pillow to have one of my own. The simple pillow, amazing. The side pillow, spectacular. I’m not just saying this cause I finally have one of my own again. More sleeping positions, great cooling feature, and superb comfort. Best thing, my girl doesn’t toss n turn as much either so more sleep for me! Highly recommended

    My son bought a side sleeper and recommended it to me, I’m so happy he did as. I love my side sleeper pillow. I was always waking up with a pain in my neck and shoulders not now after I got my new pillow. Love it…..

    I have been searching for a decent pillow for awhile now ever since my Sobakowa/buckwheat pillow started failing me. I have arthritis in the neck so I like a nice thin pillow that will keep my neck and spine in alignment. The buckwheat would do this but you had to keep adjusting it and it wasn’t necessarily the softest thing out there although it did breathe well and stay cool. I used it for years but recently started waking with neck pain and headaches. I bought into the marketing of this new “my pillow” you see advertised like crazy and tried it out. Forget about it…just an overpriced, overstuffed pillow that was not comfortable at all though I now use it for under and in-between my knees which it actually works better for. I’ve never heard of HIBR until my buddy bought one of their mattresses so I visited their website and learn of this side sleeper pillow. I decided to give it a try as I am primarily a side sleeper and the price seemed reasonable. Let me tell you, I didn’t need the full 30 days to properly evaluate and adjust to as the manual suggests. I could tell after the first night that this was the pillow for me. Definitely the most comfortable and breathable pillow I’ve ever owned. I am in love! Thank you HIBR!

    I spend 75% of my nights side sleeping and this pillow was perfect for me in dimension and height. I’m coming from another brands contour pillow and this one is worlds better. I absolutely loved this pillow while I had it but recently lost it due to a house fire. I won’t be hesitating to buy a replacement and plan on going HIBR for my replacement mattress as well.

    I’ve many of the other memory foam pillows that claim to keep cool and “are the best”. It wasn’t until I bought the HIBR Side pillow when i realized what I was missing. This pillow is specifically designed for [me], I don’t quite sleep on my side, but I sleep on my arm and this pillow is just got that. Also, everything you read about it staying cool is true… I’ve tested and tried it first hand. Next stop, then mattress!

    The pillow is too soft for me. I will be returning it.

    I love my HIBR side pillow! It’s just soft enough to be comfortable while being firm enough to keep my spine in alignment over night. There is a chemical smell just out of the box, but given a day to air out (which I do with anything memory foam) I haven’t had any problems. Having the cooling side is nice too, but I find that the pillow is pretty breathable no matter what side I’m on, which is really nice.

    HIBR is definitely worth the money so far!

    A new favorite to take to bed. Most pleasurable thing you can do with you clothes on. If Rip van Winkle had one of these pillows he would still be asleep. And it even has a cool side and a warm side for whatever you are feeling.
