A couple of years ago, I went on a quest to find my perfect body pillow. I wanted one that was soft yet firm; breathable, snuggly, and stylish. I scoured bestsellers on Amazon and editor-favorite bedding brands, and began my testing after buying more than a few. Having a handful of body pillows on your bed at once is as much of a dream as it is a nightmare, but it did help me to compare my selections and rule out the ones that just weren’t the right fit. They were too soft or uncomfortable overall, and not even the fluffy teal pillow cover could save them.

As it turns out, I didn’t have to look too far to find a body pillow that checked all my boxes and more. When I was offered the chance to test the custom Pluto Pillow, the brand also sent me their PUFF Body Pillow to try out along with it. It took one night of sleep to realize that this was the body pillow I’d been searching for all along.

What is the PUFF Body Pillow?

The PUFF Body Pillow is a Pluto-exclusive bedding find that’s ultra-cozy, surprisingly cool, and 100 percent hypoallergenic. The brand describes it as “the galaxy’s comfiest pillow that you didn’t know you wanted,” and it’s safe to say that I wholeheartedly agree. It’s stuffed with a synthetic fiber that mimics the softness and plushness of 600-fill European down. While you’re more than welcome to change out the pillowcase, the pillow does arrive in its own quilted microfiber (poly-cotton blend) cover that has a hidden zipper and is super stylish on its own. Within the cover, the pillow itself has a 100 percent cotton shell. The PUFF measures 21″ x 54″, which is just slightly wider than the average body pillow, and it has a loft that’s roughly between 8.5″-9″. With those dimensions, practically anyone of any height is able to enjoy cuddling up to this pillow. Both the cover and pillow are conveniently machine washable.

Why I Love the PUFF Body Pillow

When I said I was on the hunt for a pillow that was soft yet firm, I found it in the PUFF Body Pillow. Arriving fully fluffed, it has a good weight that feels substantial, but is still light enough to tote and toss around. I actually haven’t changed the pillowcase for my PUFF because its quilted cover is consistently cool. As a hot sleeper, that was something I didn’t know I needed (or could even get) from a body pillow! I love how squishy and cozy the PUFF is, and love even more that it hasn’t flattened out over time — not even after I’ve piled other bedding on top of it. Unlike many other pillows in my bedroom, I keep this one on my bed all night. Whenever I start to feel hot, I’ll curl up next to it and the pillow provides instant relief. Pluto has consistently impressed me with their pillows, and the PUFF is another favorite I’ve added to my list. The brand’s offerings are trendy and high-quality products that will last, and I highly recommend them to anyone who’s looking for a bedding upgrade.
