How we test products
Our mission is to take the guesswork out of finding the perfect sleep products.
We've dedicated hundreds of hours to testing mattresses and sleep accessories, and rely on a team of testers of differing weights, temperature preferences, and sleeping positions to evaluate each product.
Tested products are granted the Sleep Hero tested stamp of approval, a mark of our review's reliability.
If we haven't personally tested a product, please be assured that we invest significant time and energy into scouring the UK market and researching the best recommendations, and we work with a team of sleep experts who review our articles, ensuring that the insights we provide are not only relatable but also reliable.
Which Brightr Sleep pillow should you choose?
Finding the best pillow for a good night’s sleep is very important
Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as saying there is one perfect option for all - we all need different pillows depending on our build, preferred sleep position, and even the mattress we use.
You’ll need to consider the following:
- Do you like your pillow soft and squishy or firm and supportive?
- Are you quite petite or of larger build?
- Which sleeping position do you prefer?
Your answers to these questions will help you determine which Brightr pillow is right for you. 🙌
You can also try out the Brightr Sleep Perfect Pillow Finder Quiz to help guide you.
Here is a quick overview of the suitability of Brightr Sleep pillows:
|Nox||RefineX recycled polyester fibres||Soft||3 - 16 cm||Comfort|
|Stella||RefineX recycled polyester fibres + shredded graphene memory foam||Medium-soft||3 - 18 cm||Comfort + support|
|Luna||Shredded graphene memory foam||Medium-firm||3 - 18 cm||Comfort + support|
|Eclipse||Compact graphene memory foam||Firm||6 - 18 cm||Ergonomic support|
Since all of these pillows are available in adjustable lofts, meaning you can adjust them to the right height, they should be suitable for most builds and preferred sleeping positions. 👌
But it is important to consider the firmness of each pillow to determine which would be best for you - i.e. which firmness you most enjoy or need.
Can you wash Brightr Sleep pillows?
Brightr Sleep washing instructions are a little confusing. 💦
But here is a quick overview:
- Nox: This pillow is not washable. Spot-cleaning and using a pillow protector are recommended.
- Stella: The inner filling of the pillow is washable, and it's recommended to tumble-dry this with tennis balls to even out the filling. The pillow cover is not washable.
- Luna: This pillow (including cover and filling) is fully washable.
- Eclipse: Only the pillowcase is washable.
Brightr does say that you can sleep directly on the pillow cover for more of the copper benefits, but we’d highly recommend using a pillowcase.
You can also use a pillow protector to further safeguard your pillow.
Brightr Sleep pillow delivery conditions
Brightr Sleep products are delivered within 2- 4 business days. 🇬🇧
There is a minimum order value to qualify for free delivery within the UK, but all the pillows in the Brightr Sleep range fall above this minimum order value.
All Brightr pillows are delivery vacuum-packed and tightly rolled up.
Each pillow is placed in a dye-free dust bag that keeps the pillow compact, and this is placed in a protective yellow cardboard cylinder.
Both the protective bag and the cardboard cylinder are recyclable but they can also be reused and repurposed.
Pulling the bag out of the cylinder is easy enough, though you may need to wrangle a bit when pulling the pillow out of the bag.
This is because most of the pillows will begin expanding as soon as some of that seal is loosened.
Once unpacked, most pillows will jump back to their original shape, though we found the Eclipse pillow, which features layered and not shredded memory foam like the others, took a little bit longer to reach its ideal shape and size.
This is also the only pillow where we noticed some off-gassing, a common side effect of memory foam products.
Off-gassing is simply that “new smell” you’ll get when you unwrap the product.
It isn’t toxic or harmful in any way, though we do still recommend unpacking compressed memory foam products in well-ventilated rooms.
Should you buy a Brightr Sleep pillow?
We enjoyed testing the Brightr Sleep products and think these are an excellent newcomer to the market of adjustable pillows.
The memory foam used is of high quality, and the pillow covers felt thick and luxurious.
It is important, though, to be very deliberate in the pillow you choose since the overall firmness levels are quite set.
If you’re looking for more support, definitely stick to the firmer pillows, but if you like something soft and squishy, the more mouldable ones are a better option. ⭐️
No matter your preferred sleeping position or build, though, you’ll find a Brightr pillow that’s right for you.
