You Might Choose

Good Life Essentials If…

  • You are a back or side sleeper. The shredded pieces of memory foam in the Good Life Essentials pillow create a good amount of firmness and support (at least initially). Based on my experience, this pillow would be a good fit for traditional back and side sleepers who tend to like more support than stomach sleepers.
  • You are on a budget. Although prices on Amazon do fluctuate, it seems that the Good LIfe Essentials pillow – at least in a Queen size – is slightly less expensive than the Coop Home Goods pillow.

Coop Home Goods If…

  • You sleep in all positions. Since you have the ability to add/remove foam pieces with this pillow, you can determine exactly how much loft and support you need based on your sleep positions and neck comfort. It does come overstuffed, but you can even take enough foam out to make the pillow comfortable for stomach sleepers.

Either If…

  • You like super soft pillow covers. Both of these covers are made with a combination of polyester and rayon/viscose from bamboo. Bamboo is known for being incredibly soft and lightweight, and that is definitely the case for both of these textured covers.


There are so many similarities between these two pillows that they could both really be a good fit for back and side sleepers. The main things that set them apart are their price and the adjustable nature of the Coop Home Goods pillow.

Both come with a 30-day trial offer and warranties, so it could be worth trying either (or both) to determine if one ends up being a better fit for you over others.
