Eve Sleep is a well established and highly regarded online bed company. They were one of the original bed in a box companies within the UK. They believe that getting good sleep should be available to everyone. Aiming to provide top quality products for affordable prices, this includes the Eve Microfibre pillow.

Since the massive success of their mattress, they have expanded their product line massively. Now providing a range of mattresses, pillows and other soft furnishings. Each has been well received and tells great things about Eve Sleep. 

As for this pillow, the Eve Microfibre pillow is a step away from the foam they are well known for. Eve Sleep has created a more affordable pillow that has a more standard filling. Being a microfibre pillow it often needs to have different features to be able to set it apart from common cheap pillows, on first glance this certainly seems to be the case. Delivered within 3-5 days it can be tested quickly with its 14-day trial period.

Eve Sleep has done enough to make this pillow appear to be an excellent quality microfibre pillow. As a result, we have taken a deeper look to see if this product does what it claims.

Construction and Materials

The design of this pillow is simplistic yet stylish and effective. The colour scheme stands out with a plain white cover that has a grey trim and Eves recognisable yellow logo on the side of it. The size of the pillow does feel larger and thicker than average but it should still fit into a standard size pillowcase. 

The sides of the pillow feature mesh panels, these are made from polyester and increase the airflow in and out of the pillow. This helps prevent overheating and gives the pillow a higher than average loft. This higher lofted type of design will suit side and back sleepers more than stomach sleepers.

A big benefit of this type of construction is that it can be placed straight in the washing machine. One unusual thing for this type of pillow is that Eve Sleep claims it can also be tumble dried. Normally pillows with this type of fillings have to be air-dried to keep their structure. 

The pillow is also slightly uneven, normally this would be a bad thing. In the Eve Microfibre pillow, it gives it a slight wedge shape. Allowing you to move the pillow around and find a loft that suits you the best.

Layers

1. Microfibre Pillow Cover Layer

The cover of the Eve Microfibre pillow is made from 100% cotton with a thread count of 230. This is a classic material and it is well known for being very comfortable with a soft finish. The outer cover is not removable in this pillow but it does not need to be as you can wash the entire pillow. It is very high quality and has a good feel to it.

2. Central Hollowfibre and Microfibre Chamber Layer

Inside of the Eve Microfibre pillow is an unusual design. In the centre, there is a chamber filled with hollow fibres. This gives it a firm feel in the middle. Either side of this are chambers filled with microfibres. Microfibres give a softer feel and so the outsides of this mattress give a softer feel than the middle. It is interesting and the variable firmness will make this pillow suit a lot more people.

Comfort, Support and Sleep Quality

In terms of support and pressure relief, the Eve Microfibre pillow lies somewhere between a standard hollowfibre pillow and a memory foam pillow. While less than a memory foam pillow, it will suit people who do not like the feel of memory foam and give enough support. A softer feel can be felt on the outsides of the pillow and may suit better if you are looking for comfort over support.

Sleep quality will differ in this pillow depending on what sleeping position you sleep in. The Eve Microfibre pillow is designed primarily with back and side sleepers in mind. 

The difference in height across the pillow may make finding the right spot for you tricky but it is good to have some variation. 

Sleeping on your back or side is when this pillow shines. Its extra height allows your spine and back to be well supported and have a healthy natural space between them. It also helps promote a healthy spinal alignment.

The boxed edge will likely suit side sleepers better as the thicker side gives them the support they need. Back sleepers are likely to be suited more towards the other end which has a slight slope, giving the head a much better position to lie in.

The only sleeping position where you may have problems is on your stomach. This is due to the higher loft and slightly firmer than the average feel of the pillow. Some people may find that this causes excess strain on the neck and back, causing it to become uncomfortable in this position. 

With the inclusion of the mesh sidewalls, this pillow is extremely breathing. Even still hollowfibre/microfibre pillows are not known for overheating. Because of this, you should have no issues with overheating or sweating during the night at least that is caused by your pillow.

Our Verdict

The innovative mesh walls on this pillow are certainly interesting and eliminate any chance of overheating as you sleep. This along with the centre being hollowfibre giving a firmer feel than the microfiber edges certainly make this an interesting pillow that is set apart from the standard polyester pillow.

The Eve Microfibre pillow is likely to be an excellent choice if you sleep mainly on your side or back. In these positions, it can be moved around a lot to find a level of support and comfort that suits you well. If you are a stomach sleeper however then you are likely to be suited by pillows designed with that in mind. As with all things, personal preference will have the final say and it is always recommended to try it out in person before making a full decision.

Eve Sleeps delivery, trial period and guarantee are always well received. The support team is well regarded and contacting them if you have any issues is relatively straight forward.

There are not any outstanding negative features with this pillow. If anything it is quite a high cost for a microfibre and hollowfibre filled pillow. That being said the innovative changes that Eve Sleep has introduced do have a massive change on the pillow and we believe this justifies the cost. It lies somewhere between a top-end hollowfibre pillow and a down pillow. To compare it to a memory foam pillow would be unrealistic as they feel completely different to sleep on. 

So that sums up the Eve Microfibre pillow review. It is a quality product without being anything groundbreaking. It uses high-quality products but this should be expected with a pillow at this price. It will make a great pillow if you are looking for the following:

  • A pillow which will suit back and side sleepers the best.
  • A large pillow that you will probably only need one of.
  • A pillow which has a more classic high-quality cover.
