Fans of foam (pillows) will be thrilled with the pillows we’re comparing today – TEMPUR-Pedic’s TEMPUR-Symphony pillow and the Bear’s LOFT-X hybrid foam pillow.
Both pillows are constructed with solid pieces of foam that will never go flat or change shape. However, TEMPUR-Pedic’s proprietary TEMPUR material is focused on contouring, while the LOFT-X foam is on another end of the spectrum with its resilience and bounce. To find out more, watch my in-depth video and full written comparison below!

Who Might Choose
- Combination sleepers. The construction of the TEMPUR-Symphony is unique because it’s dual-sided. One side is designed for sided and stomach sleepers and the other side is for back sleepers. This is a great pillow for indecisive sleepers who like to change things up frequently and want options.
- Larger body types/frames. Based on its height and firmness level, TEMPUR-Pedic recommends the TEMPUR-Symphony to sleepers with medium to larger frames. Based on my experience I’m inclined to agree with the brand!
- Hot sleepers. The Bear pillow has numerous features to help keep sleepers cool, including Double Ice Fabric that’s woven with cool yarn and a ventilated core filling to promote airflow.
- Those who insist on a trial period. Bear offers a 100+ night trial on their pillow sleepers to test out and see if it’s a good match. Unfortunately, TEMPUR-Pedic does not allow returns on bedding, including any pillows.
- Those who desire a pillow that won’t fall flat. As previously mentioned, the cores of both pillows are solid pieces – albeit different shapes and features – but rest assured neither will fall flat after a night of sleep.
Based on first glances and first impressions, it can appear that these pillows are extremely similar. Yes, they’re both foam pillows with washable covers but the TEMPUR-Symphony pillow’s dual-sided design is better for combination sleepers and Bear’s pillow may be a particularly good match for hot sleepers.
