Who Might Choose

Brentwood Home Helena 

  • Sleepers who prioritize eco-friendly products. The Helena pillow is filled with 100% natural latex ribbons and sustainable natural kapok fibers, has a 100% organic cotton cover and is Eco-Institute certified free of synthetic materials.
  • Those who like a fluffier pillow. Both pillows offer shredded fillings, but the natural kapok fibers in the Helena pillow are soft and fluffy, which gives the pillow a light, airy and softer feel than the Coop Home Goods pillow. This may make it appealing to stomach sleepers.

Coop Home Goods 

  • Sleepers who want a lot of loft and filling. The Coop Home Goods pillow comes overstuffed and feels super full immediately out of the dryer. The shredded foam pieces are fairly large and provide good firmness, so taller or larger people will probably prefer this pillow.


  • Combination sleepers Both of these pillows are adjustable, which means the individual can add/remove as much of the filling as he or she wants. This makes them both technically a good fit for all sleep types. Be advised, it will take some time to find the right loft for one’s ideal neck/spine alignment.

There are so many unique and thoughtful features in both these pillows.

Brentwood Home’s Helena pillow stands apart with its unique natural latex and Kapok fiber filling. It’s a soft but supportive filling that could work for any type of sleeper.

Likewise, Coop Home Good’s shredded filling is supportive and the bamboo cover is breathable and super soft.

The makers of both pillows offer a 30-day trial period so it could be worth trying them both out to see which is the best fit for an individual’s personal sleep style.
