Beautyrest Black Pillow

starting at $20.90

Best For:

  • Hot Sleeper
  • Allergies

Available Sizes:

  • Standard - ($20.90)

The Beautyrest Black Pillow is a hypoallergenic down-alternative option with thick fill that offers contouring support for proper head and neck alignment. A 2-inch gusset helps the pillow maintain its shape and makes it particularly appropriate for back sleepers, but it’ll work for side sleepers, too.

Who is this best for?

Hot Sleeper

What hot sleepers need in a mattress:

  • Breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics or perforated materials such as gel foams to control body temperature.

  • Springs or air chambers to promote airflow.


What people who have allergies need in a mattress:

  • Hypoallergenic materials that may help deter dust mites, mold, and mildew. Be wary of flame retardants, formaldehyde, and phthalates.

  • Memory foam or latex foam may be a good option because the density is designed to leave less room for bacterial growth.

Why We Like It

  • very well-reviewed

  • hypoallergenic and breathable

  • machine washable

Who It May Not Be For

  • anyone who doesn’t like full, lofty pillows

  • stomach sleepers who prefer firmer and flatter pillows

  • people who prefer the firmness of memory foam

Product Information

The Beautyrest Black Pillow is a hypoallergenic down-alternative pillow. The thick fill is impressively supportive and designed with contouring for proper head and neck alignment. A 2-inch gusset around the pillow helps maintain its shape, making this a good pillow for people who tend to sleep on their backs.

The 400-thread count cover is made with a breathable, moisture-wicking blend of cotton and Tencel. Together, these fabrics encourage airflow to prevent overheating while you sleep. That makes this a good option if you tend to sleep hot.

Reviews for the medium-firm Beautyrest Black Pillow are overwhelmingly positive, with people praising its support, comfort, durability, and responsiveness, especially for the low price point. On the downside, some reviewers found that their pillow fill ended up clumping over time, especially after time in the dryer. To avoid that, try letting your pillows air dry or using a tumble dry setting on low heat with a few clean tennis balls. You should also fluff it regularly.

The Beautyrest Black Pillow is typically sold in packs of two.
