In early November we unveiled the first pillow that combines the comfort and support of air with our patented Sleep Number adjustability: The Sleep Number AirFit Adjustable Pillow.
We are so excited about this innovative pillow. We’ve featured it in our ad campaigns. On our Web site. And, in our social media channels. But, we know not everyone is going to believe us—after all, we have a vested interest here
So, we thought, why not get in the holiday spirit and share our new pillow with a few bloggers to see what they think. A little early holiday gift, if you would.
A few weeks later, the bloggers responded. And boy, were they thrilled. We could tell you what they said, but we think it would work much better if you heard it from them directly—in their own words.
Noemi, Weight Loss Mother
Noemi is motivated more than ever to shed her baby weight. As a mother to two boys, Noemi will be documenting her weight loss journey in her blog. How does she plan on shedding the weight? By eating right and sleeping right—with the aid or her totally “cool” Sleep Number AirFit Adjustable Pillow, of course.
Key quote: “I can honestly say that I haven’t slept as good as I did last night, my first night with the AirFit pillow, in a long time. I loved that you can adjust it to whatever is comfortable for you. It’s also nice and cool.”
Holly Homer, She is Dallas
Holly is a stay-at-home mom of three boys who raves about her hometown Dallas–and her Sleep Number bed. In fact, Holly sleeps in our temperature-balancing sheets, too. So you can imagine Holly’s reaction when we gave her a Sleep Number AirFit Adjustable Pillow. She says it’s magical!
Key quote: “So when the dear people at Sleep Number asked me to try out their new AirFit Adjustable Pillow, I said YES. I actually did yell YES so the all caps is not an exaggeration…I felt super lucky to get a sneak peek. It might LOOK like a regular pillow, but there is a secret compartment that contains an air valve: The fabric corner folds back to reveal the adjustable technology…magical!”
Chelsea and Nate, Someday I’ll Learn
Chelsea and her husband Nate are tackling domestic life, one day at a time—and blogging about it. Chelsea says they’re getting the “sleep of their lives” on their Sleep Number bed. And now that they have a Sleep Number AirFit Adjustable Pillow, their “heads get to experience a miniaturized version of the Sleep Number bed’s adjustable support.” We love her imagery!
Key quote: “The AirFit pillow has an air chamber at its core so you can adjust it to whatever level you’re most comfortable with. You simply lay down on it and open a valve to release air until it’s as soft as you like, then close the air valve to secure that position. Open the air valve without laying on the pillow and it fills back up with air. It’s like sleeping on your own perfectly customized little cloud. Our necks couldn’t be happier.”
Jami Goldsmith, Imagine Design Blog
Jami is a designer and loves what she does for a living. She also loves her Sleep Number bed. So how did the Sleep Number AirFit Adjustable Pillow measure up to those high standards? Let’s just say her blog includes images of a pretty “suuuuweeeet” pillow!
Key quote: “Love the memory foam! Always been a big fan of memory foam and I was super excited that I wasn’t getting a goose down pillow that loses it’s volume immediately after laying your head down on it. Love the soft, cushy pillow cover with the cute little pocket for the valve. OK…first I was like, that valve is weird and does it really work? Well, it’s not that weird after you cover it up and yes, it really does work! I pushed down on the pillow and a lot of the air out of the pillow came out and made it about 1/3 of the size it originally was. Super cool. I’d give this pillow a 9 out of 10.”
Stacy, Social Media Junkie
In this post, Stacy explains the features of all three AirFit pillows: CoolFit™ Foam, Memory Fiber and European White Goose Down. Stacy makes sure you don’t miss out on any details by posting our short video, too. She even goes the extra mile by saying the AirFit pillow makes a great gift. We couldn’t agree with her more!
Key quote: “I now have the CoolFit Foam Adjustable Pillow and since I’ve started using it I’ve been sleeping like a baby. I usually use three or four pillows to sleep at night and I have my entire life, but with the CoolFit Foam I don’t need extra pillows and when I wake up in the morning my neck and shoulders aren’t sore from sleeping unevenly all night on a pile of pillows. Sleep Number’s AirFit Adjustable Pillow made me realize how much money I’m wasting on pillows every year although I think I’m saving. I spend about $25 per pillow and buy six every three to four months, when I could buy three AitFit Adjustable Pillows instead and have them last the entire year and then some. If you have a hard time sleeping at night because you’re uncomfortable then these pillows will be the perfect solution.”
Ron Stern, Just Say Go
Ron, who’s a noted travel writer, tested the Sleep Number AirFit Adjustable Pillow prior to taking a recent trip to Germany. As you can tell from this post, he was quite impressed.
Key quote: “The pillow works by adjusting the amount of air you need for your head. There is a dial on one corner that you turn that lets air out and conforms to the exact amount of firmness that you like. I did this the first night and after a few adjustments, found just the right amount of support I needed. I have slept soundly since and haven’t woken up with a stiff neck—something that has been a constant problem over the years. This is quite a clever innovation and like buying a good pair of shoes, a good pillow is a is a must for me and this one seems to be it.”
