Are you searching for the perfect pillow to get a dream-filled night of sleep? We’re here to help. 

This post will look at the construction, feel, and price point of the Purple Pillow and Serenity Contour Pillow to help you decide which one is right for you. So, if you’re ready to wake up feeling rested after a full night of lounging in dreamland (who isn’t?), keep reading as we show you how the two pillows measure up on every level so you can decide which one has your name written all over it.

Types of Pillows 

Understanding how the construction of pillows affects the level of support and comfort they provide is essential.

When you’re in the market for a pillow, you want to find one that’s comfortable and compatible with your sleeping style. Not all pillow types are created equal, so it’s important to pay attention to materials and fillings.

Down Pillows

Down pillows are filled with ducks or geese’s soft, fluffy feathers. They are considered the highest quality pillows available and are very durable. However, down pillows can also be costly and may not be suitable for people allergic to feathers.

Feather Pillows

Feather pillows are filled with the stiffer, less fluffy feathers of ducks or geese. They are less expensive than down pillows but still provide good support. But, again, feather pillows may not be suitable for people allergic to feathers.

Synthetic Pillows

Synthetic pillows are made from manufactured materials such as polyester or nylon. They are usually less expensive than down or feather pillows and are hypoallergenic. However, synthetic pillows may not be as durable as down or feather and may not provide as much support.

Memory Foam

Purple Pillow and Serenity Contour are made with memory foam, which is undoubtedly the most popular material for pillows today. Memory foam pillows are filled with specialized foam that conforms to the shape of your head and neck. People who sleep on their sides or stomachs may find memory foam pillows to be the best choice since they are more likely to retain their shape without collapsing.

Now, let’s compare the Purple Pillow to the Serenity Contour. 

Purple Pillow

Purple is a Utah-based mattress company that produces pillows, seat cushions, and platform bases. Founded in 2015 by brothers Tony and Terry Pearce, the Purple Pillow was the company’s first product.

Purple Pillow advertises a better night’s sleep with its proprietary Purple Grid and breathable polyester cover.

Purple Pillow: Pros

Variety: Purple’s pillows are designed to prioritize different features, like loft (height), firmness, and feel. Some models are adjustable with zippers and inserts to raise, lower, soften, or firm up your pillow.

Safety: All of Purple’s products are made without the harmful chemicals that are often found in foam mattresses and pillows. The designs are also flame-retardant without added chemicals and are free of allergens.

Customer Service: They offer a 100-night sleep trial, a 1-year warranty, free shipping, and returns on all their products.

Purple Pillow: Cons

Packaging: Some online reviewers complained about a few shipping and packing issues. They described a plastic powder coating and strange smells coming from the pillows. 

Hand wash only: The Purple Pillow should be hand washed and air dried for at least 24 hours. 

Serenity Contour Pillow

The Serenity Contour has been a bestseller since it launched over five years ago.

It is a highly versatile pillow with a straight side to provide traditional support for back and stomach sleepers and a contoured side that hugs the shoulders for side sleepers. 

The Serenity Contour features

  • Price: $69
  • Firmness: Firm 
  • Hypoallergenic 
  • Nontoxic 
  • Straight side and a contoured side

Serenity Contour: Pros

Safety: All MLILY products are made without ozone depleters and maintain CertiPUR-US safety standards of textile articles at all stages of production.

Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam: The Serenity Contour is made with this specialized memory foam that offers superior support by adapting to micro-pressure points with an open cell structure that keeps the pillow incredibly cool. 

MLILY-Exclusive PCM: The Serenity Contour is made with Phase-Changing Material (PCM) that will absorb or release body heat to provide passive temperature regulation while you sleep, ensuring you stay cool and comfortable during the night. 

Customer Service: All MLILY sleep products come with free shipping and returns and a 10-year warranty. 

Serenity Contour: Cons

One Size: The serenity Contour comes in one size, so there is little flexibility regarding the actual height of the pillow. However, if you are looking for a fully customizable pillow, the adjustable pillow is a great alternative. It comes in three different thicknesses to accommodate different sleeping preferences and features the same premium shredded memory foam and cooling cover.

Care: Covers are removable and can be hand washed with mild soap and then hung to dry.  For additional information, please see our care instructions.
