Detailed Belly Sleep Pillow Review Conclusion

The Belly Sleep Pillow fills an incredible gap in the pillow and bedding industry. They were able to engineer a pillow that caters to the stomach sleepers and turns that specific style into a comfortable and healthy sleeping position.

I personally fall asleep on my stomach and always had the hardest time finding a pillow that would not leave me waking up with a stiff neck. I have slept on the same (and probably long expired), thin down pillow for years. Sleeping at hotels has always been a nightmare and sure to make me uncomfortable. So when I discovered Belly Sleep, I had to get my hand on one and see whether a pillow was finally working with the needs of a stomach sleeper. And it does! 

Its thin profile and ergonomic edges ensure that the neck is positioned in a way that aligns the entire spine – leaving stomach sleepers with a pain-free neck and lower back. The memory foam’s slight contouring also means that no material ever covered my mouth or nose, as in other pillows. We loved testing the Belly Sleep Pillow and highly recommend it to all stomach-sleepers out there!

Who Is Belly Sleep?

Over at Belly Sleep, the team understands the particular needs of stomach sleepers. Sleeping on your stomach is often regarded as unhealthy, yet many fall asleep on their stomachs every night. If it is your most comfortable position, you know that it can reduce snoring and sleep apnea, but also leave you with aches in your neck and down your spine. 

The team of stomach sleepers, at Belly Sleep, has been on a mission to design the perfect pillow for their fellow belly sleepers, and they’ve come up with a product that solves many of the common issues reported by stomach sleepers. They were tired of the lack of options and wanted a pillow that makes sleeping pain-free and comfortable for the belly sleepers. While Belly Sleep currently only sells one pillow (3 variations: one with cooling gel particles reviewed here, one with a cooling gel layer, and a smaller version to take on trips), they mention the Belly Sleep Pillow being just the “tip of the iceberg”. 

At this time, you can also purchase extra bamboo covers for your pillow, cotton pillowcases, and silk pillow cases.

I am excited to follow Belly Sleep and see what else they come up with for belly sleepers!

What Is Inside The Belly Sleep Pillow?

The Belly Sleep pillow comes in two parts – the inner memory foam insert, and its removable cover. Let’s look at each piece individually: 

1- the inner insert is made of 2.5 inches of memory foam, infused with cooling gel particles. This memory foam provides the right amount of support to the head and neck, to ensure perfect spinal alignement of a stomach sleeper. The cooling gel particles ensure a cool night of sleep, keeping the memory foam from overheating and leaving you sweating. 

2- the removable cover is made of bamboo and polyester, and is easily unzipped for washing. The bamboo is naturally moisture wicking and extremely odor-resistant. It is easy to maintain and provides a clean surface for lay your head on night after night. 

How Does The Belly Sleep Pillow Sleep?

Firmness

The Belly Sleep Pillow is truly designed for stomach sleepers. With its thin 2.5-inch profile of memory foam, it provides a thin and soft contouring of the face. It is soft while providing the exact support of the neck and head a stomach sleeper needs.

Temperature

Because memory foam can a heat-trapping material, Belly Sleep has infused their foam with cooling gel particles. They are spread everywhere inside the foam, providing a temperature-neutral sleeping surface and prevent sweating and overheating. 

Maintenance

The Belly Sleep Pillow comes with its own cover. You will still want to fit it inside a pillowcase, but the pillow you receive comes with a 2.5-inch memory foam insert and its bamboo/polyester removable cover. 

The bamboo cover is machine washable and simply needs to be unzipped before washing. The memory foam insert should never be machine washed. Instead, you could vacuum clean it occasionally and spot clean stains with a cloth and mild detergent. More details can be found further down.

Sleeping Style

The Belly Sleep Pillow is 100% designed with stomach sleepers in mind. A back sleeper preferring a thiner pillow, might also find it a comfortable option. Side sleepers will definitely need a much thicker option to get the full neck / spine / head support for healthy sleep. 

If you are a side sleeper however, you will get all of the support your neck needs to keep your entire spine in alignment. The curved edges and unique to the Belly Sleeper Pillow and provide an ergonomic support of the neck area. You will also find that your head lays fairly flat and free of awkward angles, leaving your airways free of blockage. 

How Do I Care For My Belly Sleep Pillow?

I love how easy it is to care for the Belly Sleep pillow. The easy maintenance is huge plus, especially since stomach sleepers have a large portion of their faces lay right onto their pillow. 

After you remove the pillowcase, you will find that the Belly Sleep pillow’s own cover is removable and washable. Simply unzip it and machine-wash it separately.

Since the pillow insert is made of 2.5 inches of memory foam, you shouldn’t see dust mites moving in. However, it is a good idea to gently vacuum the pillow insert once a week to keep it clean of dirt, grime, and potential mites. Should there be a stain on the memory foam insert, DO NOT machine wash it. Instead, spot clean it with a cloth and mild detergent and blow-dry the area afterwards. 

How Does The Belly Sleep Return Policy Work?

Belly Sleep has a 30-day home trial, during which you can return the pillow, should you not be satisfied. It is recommended to give at least a 15-night trial to the pillow, as the body can take a couple of weeks to adjust to a new pillow, especially when switching over from a different material into memory foam. 

Should you decide to return the pillow, you need to do so within 30 days of receipt, and only pillows purchased directly from Belly Sleep are eligible for return. The pillow must be clean and not damaged, and you need to show your original receipt as proof of purchase. 

Lastly, the return policy limits the number of returns to 1 per household per year, and you will be responsible for the return shipping charges.
