She rated this pillow 3-stars. The customer has been looking for a flat pillow and finally found this pillow. She has used this pillow for 6 months and it feels like she is not sleeping on a pillow at all. She will buy another one but she hopes the price will go down because this one is currently expensive.

The customer was very disappointed with this pillow. They tried it and said it was flat but it was too soft and not firm enough for the customer so they could not sleep on it like we said earlier.

There have been a couple of customers who have complained about the pillow being too soft.

The customer says this is the real deal because it really is a thin pillow. The pillow is 2.75 inches thick and the customer has slept nicely on the pillow.

The customer says they have arm issues and needed a pillow to overcome these arm issues. They were not real thrilled about trying this pillow because they thought it would be too thin. The customer sleeps on their stomach and on their side but sleeping on their stomach is painful because they must keep their arms flat by their sides. They will sleep on their sides or stomach different portions of the time. They bought the pillow and they found that they are able to sleep on their side and on their stomach now with this pillow. They can sleep comfortably through the night now since they bought the pillow.

She says this pillow allows her to sleep comfortably on her side and her stomach. The only issue she has with the pillow is that it is too low and her husband says it looks flat on the bed. This is why she rated it 4-stars instead of 5-stars because the pillow is a little bit too low for her.

The customer has chronic pain in the hips and she needed extra support for her hips. She bought this pillow and set it under her hips and she slept on the pillow all night in comfort and the best part is she slept without any pain. She sleeps nicely now and she is very happy with the pillow. She rated the pillow 5-stars.

The customer says the company needs to change the description because the pillow is 1.75 inches, not 2.75 inches and it aggravated her shoulder but she says it is a good pillow otherwise. She says it is good for stomach sleepers but not for side sleepers like her self. She is wrong because a customer shared an image that showed the pillow is 2.75 inches. Also, side sleepers have slept on their sides with the pillow.

Benefits and Uses: The pillow is made partly of polyester and rayon made from bamboo. The pillow is between 2.5 and 2.75 inches high and it is perfect for stomach and back sleepers. The company infused the pillow with gel particles to keep the pillow from overheating. They also put ventilation in the pillow to keep it extra cool. You will never sleep on a hot pillow again. There are no additives involved in the process of making the pillow. The company has improved the manufacturing process to take the stiffness out of the pillow. Memory foam tends to be stiffer than this pillow’s foam. This is according to the company’s perspective.

Feedback: The customer claims they have a unique side sleeping position. They tuck their arm under their head when they sleep. They needed to find a pillow that would accommodate this sleeping position. They tried bamboo-made pillows and flat, thin pillows but none of them worked.

Slim Sleeper Memory Foam: Best Flat Pillow, Thin, Low Profile, Cotton Cover, Short Loft Is Only 3 Inches

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B012B6ZYYM&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=balancemebeau 20&language=en US - Best Thin Pillows Reviewsir?t=balancemebeau 20&language=en US&l=li3&o=1&a=B012B6ZYYM - Best Thin Pillows Reviews

Benefits and Uses: The pillow is good for back and stomach sleepers. So if you fit into either one of these categories of sleepers this pillow is for you. Firm but it is a comfortable memory foam that will help you sleep better. The pillow will stop mold and bug beds from rooting in the pillow and mattress.

Feedback: The customer says beware of the phrase “relieves all pressure points” because supposedly the customer says the ear took the brunt of the full weight of the head. Which really does not make a lot of sense because this means the pillow would relive no pressure points. The ear would not be able to take the full weight of the head without being damaged. The customer rated the pillow one -star. The customer could only lay on the pillow for one minute. This sounds like a bogus review.

Best Thin Pillows Reviews


There you have a list of reviews of thin pillows listed on the market. Generally, the pillows were received favorably with the customers. But there were a few reviews that the pillows did not meet the expectations of the customers. In one review the customer claims when they laid their head on the pillow the ear took the full weight of the head and they could only lay the head on the pillow for one minute. This is very unlikely the case that the pillow would center all the pressure of the head on the pillow. This had to be a fake review.
