Otty pillow composition

As we’ve seen above, Otty Sleep has two pillows on the market in the UK, the Otty Deluxe Pure pillow and the Otty Adjustable pillow.

Let’s take a closer look at the composition of both.

Otty Deluxe Pure pillow composition

The Otty Deluxe Pure pillow is best known as a bamboo pillow, but it’s actually comprised of bamboo and charcoal-infused memory foam.

This gives it unique hypoallergenic, temperature-regulating, moisture-wicking, and odour-eliminating properties, which is ideal for people struggling with allergies, asthma, or those with sensitive skin or hygiene concerns. 🤧

Otty Adjustable pillow composition

The Otty Adjustable pillow features a customisable design with removable inner memory foam pieces, allowing the user to adjust the height and firmness to their liking.

The small foam cubes in the Otty Adjustable pillow give it greater customisability than layered adjustable options, like the Brightr Sleep Eclipse pillow or the Emma Premium pillow.

Otty pillow cover

Both Otty pillow covers come in clean, neat designs that will look great under any pillowcase, though you may find the grey mesh border shines through very fine white silk pillowcases.

  • The Otty Deluxe Pure pillow cover is made of 97% polyester and 3% spandex, and has a layer of viscose-from-bamboo padding, adding extra comfort.
  • The Otty Adjustable pillow cover has two sides, with one made from cotton and the other from a unique CoolTouch fabric for enhanced breathability.

Conveniently, both Otty pillow covers are removable and machine-washable, making it easy to maintain hygiene and freshness.

What does sleeping on the Otty pillow feel like?

Since both Otty pillows are made of memory foam, they’re meant to feel incredibly supportive and comfortable.

Memory foam contours to the shape of your head and neck, providing optimal support and pressure relief for a restful night’s sleep.

This is definitely verified by multiple Otty pillow reviews.

The Otty Deluxe Pure pillow is a little firmer and more supportive, so it's the one to choose if you’re looking for something stable.


The Otty Adjustable pillow, however, is a little softer and plusher, but it also offers some customisation opportunities.

  • If you want your pillow firmer and a tad more supportive, you can simply leave all the memory foam pieces in.
  • But if you want something a little softer, you can remove some of the filling to create a softer pillow with a lower loft.

It is worth noting, though, that the Otty Deluxe Pure pillow has layered filling, and the Otty Adjustable pillow has shredded filling.

memory foam pillow versus traditional pillow
The Deluxe Pure pillow feels more like a standard memory foam pillow, while the Adjustable option feels more like a traditional pillow.

This suggests that the Deluxe Pure will feel more like what you’d expect from a chunky memory foam pillow, while the Adjustable pillow will feel slightly more like a traditional microfibre, down, or feather pillow.

What size is the Otty pillow?

Both Otty pillows are approximately 60 x 40 cm (23.6 x 15.7 inches), but their heights differ greatly.

  • The Otty Deluxe Pure pillow is available in one standard height of 10 cm (3.9 inches). This is a good medium loft that would be suited to most sleepers.
  • The Otty Adjustable pillow's maximum height is 25 cm (which is extremely high), but you can remove foam cubes to lower the loft.

It’s worth noting, as well, that the Deluxe Pure pillow may contour around your head, but it’s unlikely to compress significantly, while the Adjustable pillow, with its shredded filling, is more likely to compress.

Adjustable pillows help you find the right loft for correct spinal alignment.

This is why you need a higher starting loft for similar support and firmness.

What does the Otty pillow cost?

Otty pillows are not cheap, but they do offer excellent value for money.

They’re much cheaper than luxury options like the Emma Premium pillow or the Simba Hybrid pillow but largely on par with items like the Emma Original pillow.

Otty pillow sales

Luckily, though, Otty does offer occasional sales, meaning you can snag your new pillow at a better price.

Occasionally, you’ll also be able to get free or discounted pillows with the purchase of a mattress. 🥳

If there are any discounts currently running, we’ll be sure to advertise them throughout this page.

Otty pillow delivery conditions

The Otty pillow is delivered directly to your doorstep in a compact box for convenience.

Otty Sleep offers free standard delivery.

Simply unbox the pillow, allow it to expand to its full size, and enjoy a comfortable night's sleep right away.

trial period for pillows
Otty pillows come with a 14-day trial, but pillows will have to be as new when returned.

Conveniently, the pillows come with a 14-day returns policy and you can use the pillows during this period, but it’s worth noting that pillows have to be as new when returned and you’ll have to keep the original packaging.

More on this in the FAQs below.

Should you buy the Otty pillow?

Both Otty pillows are excellent buys.

Choose the Otty Deluxe Pure pillow if you’re looking for something firmer and more supportive, and the Otty Adjustable pillow if you’re looking for something a little softer and squishier.
