Get a Good Night’s Sleep With The Sealy Select Balance Pillow

I don’t know about you, but I’m super fussy when it comes to pillows. They have to be just right for me to get a good night’s sleep. This Sealy Select Balance Pillow pair offers all the smoothness of silk, thanks to the combination of a silk-like DuPont Serica Fibre filling and a 100 per cent microfibre cover. Providing soft and gentle support, they are suitable for those who sleep on their front or their back. They are also 100 per cent hypo-allergenic and machine washable.

You can’t always tell whether a pillow will be suitable simply by looking at it. Naturally, those who sleep on their side are recommended to choose deeper and firmer pillows to ensure optimal spinal alignment as they sleep, while those who sleep on their back or their front are better to choose a softer and slimmer pillow.

Sealy Select Balance pillows are something of an exception to this rule, as they are deep-filled to provide a pleasing plumpness, yet soft enough to make them ideal for front and back sleepers.
This surprising fact is largely due to their unique filling: DuPont Serica Fibres, which have been specially developed to promise the smoothness of silk, yet in a synthetic fibre. These sleek fibres are then encased in 100 per cent microfibre, to create a soft and silky smooth sleep experience that is designed to leave you feeling balanced and relaxed.

Offered both singularly and as a pair, these Sealy Select Balance Pillows are also hypo-allergenic and machine washable. It’s quite a feat to construct a pillow that is soft yet also supportive and Sealy have certainly achieved this desirable combination. They are graded at number three out of ten firmness on their chart, between soft and medium. The confident two year guarantee shows they have faith in their own product. So many pillows fail, fall flat or go lumpy after a short while, so if these do, there is recourse.

Being washable too is a plus, machine wash and cool tumble dry, and they are hypoallergenic, which a given these days. The covering is smooth and soft (Polyester Microfibre) and the filling is hollow fibre polyester. Best of all they are absolutely gorgeous to sleep on, front or back, they provide a good back rest when reading or watching tv in bed. I like two pillows and these are just right.

    To be fair, I kinda have narcolepsy as I have fallen asleep sitting up the past 5/6 years and can sleep sitting up for hours on end, so can’t really comment on this….However, before this happened, I would use a lavender spray on my bedding as lavender is always good to aid with sleep and also migraines.
