Sleep Number PlushComfort Pillow REVIEW


The PlushComfort pillows are designed to be silky-soft and hypoallergenic. They are a “down-alternative” style pillow and the filling mimics the softness of premium down. That combined with the smooth, brushed cotton cover makes for a very comfortable addition to any Sleep Number sleep system. The pillow ranges in price from $49.99–79.99 (MSRP) but they can be found on sale (at the time of publishing this article) for as low as $29.99 starting price. There are three different design options that Sleep Number offers with the PlushComfort pillow — classic, curved, and ultimate.

  • Curved: Fits your contours for enhanced comfort and support. Best for side or back sleepers
  • Ultimate: Three removable inserts let you individualize your support and height as your sleep needs change. Great for all sleeping positions. Recommend 1–2 inserts for stomach sleepers; 2–3 inserts for back or side sleepers.

User Experience

The pillow arrived with three inserts as described. I was so excited to test out the new bedding that I immediately pulled it out of its plastic packaging and slid it onto the bed. It was the middle of the afternoon so I really only had the chance to take a short nap. I thought it was comfortable, but not exactly what I expected. With the comfort of the Sleep Number bed being such a dramatic difference, that was what I thought sleeping with the PlushComfort would be like. That night I slept with the pillow just as it arrived — with three inserts included in the sleeve. The next morning I woke up and had a small headache. For me, that is usually indicative of an uncomfortable pillow — one that it too hard.


I wasn’t sure how I felt about upgrading my pillow once again, but since it’s had such a profound change in the way I sleep and as a result feel throughout the day, I can recommend it to anyone out there. If you find yourself having issues sleeping like I did, give a new pillow a try and don’t be afraid to get something that is more ‘premium’ like the PlushComfort. It could really make a difference for you.
