You Might Choose

Snuggle-Pedic If…

  • You sleep in different positions. The Snuggle-Pedic is a versatile pillow – you can add/remove pieces of foam within the pillow to determine your own desired loft and support. If you are a stomach, back and side sleeper you can decide what is the best amount of filling for you.
  • You want a super soft outer cover. This pillow is made with viscose from Bamboo, a fabric that is known for being super soft and comfortable.
  • You want a pillow you can totally wash and dry. While I wouldn’t recommend you do this regularly, it is possible to completely wash and dry the Snuggle-Pedic, so if an accident happens there is a way to get it totally clean – just follow the directions carefully.

Bear If…

  • You want a low-maintenance pillow. It is easy to remove and wash/dry the outer cover of the Bear pillow and that is all you have to do to keep it clean. The foam won’t lose its shape or go flat, so there is no need to throw it in the dryer to fluff it (which I would recommend you do with the Snuggle-Pedic).
  • You like a firmer pillow. The core of this pillow is a solid piece of latex foam and memory foam that gives the pillow an overall firmer feel than the Snuggle-Pedic, which features shredded pieces.
  • You are into trying something different. There’s no doubt that the Bear pillow has a futuristic look and feel to it. The Double Ice Fabric keep it cool to the touch and gives it a smooth but slippery overall feel and the hybrid foam is ventilated, comfortable but overall supportive.

Overall

If you are looking for a foam-filled pillow, the Snuggle-Pedic and Bear pillows are two great offerings that each come with their own specialties.

The Snuggle-Pedic could be a great fit for someone who wants their pillow to meet their exact needs, even if that changes day-to-day. The adjustable filling makes it easy to customize the loft and support to meet your needs.

The Bear pillow is focused on being cool and supportive. The Double Ice fabric is unique and the solid piece of foam will hold its shape, breathes, and provides support that back and side sleepers may enjoy.

Both pillows come with warranties and trial periods, which makes it a little bit easier to give one (or both) a try to see if they’re a good fit for you.
