The Super Plush Gel-Fiber Filled Pillows by Utopia Bedding mark a change from the standard polyester or foam fill you may be accustomed to, instead utilizing microfiber gel to create a firm yet soft fill.
700GSM Gel-Fiber Filling
The gel microfiber filling on the Super Plush Gel-Fiber Pillows from Utopia Bedding clocks in at 700 grams per square meter (GSM). When it comes to GSM, the higher the number, the plusher and comfier a material is. Another benefit to the gel is it helps regulate your body temperature so you don’t get hot and sticky in the night.
The Super Plush Gel-Fiber Pillows’ microfiber gel filling is 100% hypoallergenic; both the fill and the fabric color are made from hypoallergenic materials. Better still, these materials are also resistant to trapping allergens in them.
For instance, goose feathers can not only cause allergies themselves, but they can trap a lot of dust, exacerbating the issue. This phenomenon just isn’t an issue with Utopia’s pillows.
The fabric shell of the pillow is made with an antimicrobial material that discourages bacteria, viruses, and other microbes from taking hold on your pillow, making you sick. Since most of us are guilty of not washing our pillows enough (or at all), this is a good safety net.
Machine Washable and Dryable
A lot of pillows simply aren’t machine washable. Even basic cotton-covered, polyester fill pillows will often warn you on the label not to wash them. The problem with this is, it’s just not hygienic. To get rid of household dust, debris, human hair oil and more, it’s important to wash your pillows regularly to keep them at their best.
This is why the Utopia Bedding Super Plush Gel-Fiber Pillow is remarkable; not only is it made out of advanced materials, including filling, but it’s also able to be washed.
Any parent or pet owner knows the importance of being able to wash a pillow. Also, this pillow is machine dryable as well, which is even rarer still and oh-so-necessary for today’s world, where convenience and time-efficiency in household chores are at a prime.
When I first got the Super Plush Gel-Fiber Pillow, I was really shocked to learn that you could machine wash and machine dry it. I’m a big believer in keeping one’s pillows clean, because it cuts down on allergies and illness.
If you’ve ever suffered from asthma, or have kids that do, you know what I’m talking about. The last time I bought pillows, I accidentally got a set that weren’t washable and dryable—and I did. They turned out lumpy and it was awful. I used them anyway to teach myself a lesson.
I’m pleased with the way this pillow handles in the washer and with the way it came out after I dried it. I washed and dried it before using it, because, like I said, I just think it’s cleaner—no matter how sanitary conditions are at the manufacturer. The pillow was just as good as new after laundering, so I felt like that boded well.
As for how it feels, once again, I’m surprisingly impressed. The Super Plush Gel-Fiber Pillow is nicely firm yet surprisingly soft. It cradles my neck just right, which is hard to do, because I suffer from chronic pain due to a neck injury I got in high school. I’m not saying it cured my neck pain by any stretch, but what it did do was allow me to wake up less stiff, in less pain and feel better rested.
It’s been a few weeks now and all the above holds true.
What to like about the Utopia Bedding Super Plush Gel-Fiber Filled Pillows:
- Soft 240 thread count
- Machine washable and dryable
- Comfortable gel fiber filling
- Filling encourages temperature regulation keeping you from being too hot or too cold
- Easy to adjust
- Automatically fluffs upon package opening
- Easily re-fluff in a dryer or in sunlight as needed
What to consider:
- To wash the pillow, you must put it in a laundry bag or wrap it in a towel. This isn’t a major downside, but it’d be more convenient if you could just wash and go.
The set comes with two queen size Utopia Bedding Super Plush Gel-Fiber 3D Hollow Siliconized Material Filled Pillows.
The Super Plush Gel-Fiber Pillow from Utopia Bedding is not only super comfortable, it’s super easy to care for. For this reason, I’d recommend it to all the busy moms and dads out there, as well as allergy sufferers, who need that bit of extra protection machine washing provides.
