What is a Shredded Memory Foam Pillow?
There are more bedding products on the market today than every before. With so many choices, it can be difficult to understand the differences between products’ composition and potential benefit to the sleeper. There was a time where a pillow was just a pillow and then came the time where you just had to decide between a fiber fill or a memory foam pillow. Those days are no more, so it is imperative to be an educated and smart consumer aware of the variety of diverse products on the market so that you can make the best decision on which products are best for you and your loved ones.
If you’ve looked into purchasing a memory foam pillow, you may have noticed that some memory foam pillows are made out of shredded memory foam, while others are traditional memory foam pillows. What is a shredded memory foam pillow, and how does it differ from standard memory foam? We’ll help you figure it out and become a more educated consumer!
Shredded Memory Foam vs. Standard Memory Foam
Pillows made of shredded memory foam and standard memory foam have the same main ingredient – you guessed it, memory foam. The difference between the two is the state of the memory foam. In a pillow featuring shredded memory foam, sometimes called cluster memory foam, the foam is chopped up into smaller pieces, giving the pillow a “fluffable” feel more similar to a fiber filled pillow. A regular memory foam pillow is made of a sheet of memory foam and does not have that “fluffable” quality. The shredded memory foam pillow is a good crossover between the feel of a fiber pillow and the pressure relieving support of a traditional memory foam pillow. Shredded memory foam pillows are typically less firm and dense than traditional memory foam pillows.
If you’re interested in a shredded memory foam pillow, the SensorGel line available exclusively at Macy’s features the Gel-Infused Cluster Memory Foam Pillow as well as a cluster foam pillow with a copper-infused cover. Both of these pillows feature CertiPUR-US certified gel-infused memory foam for a cooler and more eco-friendly night’s sleep in any sleeping position. The cluster pillow with copper-infused cover adds additional wellness properties to aid in attaining restorative sleep. Either of these shredded memory foam pillows would be ideal for individuals that desire to stay cool throughout the night and want the pressure relieving support of a memory foam pillow without it being as firm as a traditional memory foam pillow.
